Merry Month of the Hawthorn!
Today, in the Celtic Tree Calendar, is the start of the Hawthorn Month. Hawthorn is part of the Oak and Ash and Thorn trio of sacred trees, and is heavily connected to the realm of the Fae—being one of the favorites haunts of faeries from various traditions. Traditionally used for the Maypole on Beltane Eve, the blossoms were also used to encourage blessings on the bearer. Hawthorn is...
Holly Black's Tumblr: Fae are radical beauty. →
swanblood: When I see people complaining about how “a fat person can’t be fae”, “a black person doesn’t look right as fae”, because the image in their head is an image of the current Western idea of slim, white, normative female beauty, I want to say… What makes you think fae care about… HELL YES. Great post.

Considering the tragedy in Boston, for the rest of this week, Marc and I are going to focus on things other than my books. While life must go on, we can slow the pace down a little while people have a chance to regroup and breathe. What happened was horrific, but the real spirit of humanity resides within our ability to stand up after tragedy and move forward. Defeat the spirit, and you defeat...
Thursday…um…Saturday at the Movies
Okay, so movie night’s a couple days late, but who’s counting. Today, we’re going to review a classic cult film that I LOVE…and I say ‘we’ not in the royal sense, but in the sense of Marc, who watches over my Facebook, etc., and me. We both love the movie and thought it would be fun to take our discussions about it to the page. What better place than my Movie Night post? So sit back, and turn...
