If you think cats can’t love you as much as a dog then you’ve obviously never had one come lay beside you and purr while you’re in the middle of a crying fit
I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.
1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
who wants to give up on society and go live in a treehouse with me
i like wearing lipstick because you leave marks on literally everything omg. kiss a boy’s cheek? my boy now. drink out of a cup? my cup forever. don’t even think about having coffee out of that thing. it’s like marking your territory
someone start the boiling water challenge

But soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and I fucking read fanfics til four in the morning again
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.
I have, a lot! In fact I’m kind of in one right now. Everyone has different ways of dealing with it, but this is what works for me:
- Start writing something else. If I’m in a difficult way with a particular plot, writing something different will help get those creative juices going and when you come back to your project you’ll have a fresh perspective (and you’ll have been productive doing something else).
- Don’t aim for perfection. I think what I struggled with at first was trying to get the best word, the best sentence and would stare and stare and get stuck in one spot, instead of just going with what I have and coming back and editing later.
- Take a break. Surf your dash, walk around your house, watch some TV, whatever it is. If you’re stuck, you’re stuck, have some fun and relax your brain and then come back to it.
- Try some prompts. Throw your characters into a completely random situation. There’s a whole tumblr full of em.
- Get out of your routine. Try dragging the laptop to a park or a Starbucks and write there, sometimes people watching or the environment can give you inspiration. Or write by hand! In a notebook!
- Dangle your head upside down. This is really weird but it works for me. Instant bloodrush to the brain, and then stand back up. It’s like setting the reset button on my body.
- Read something new. First, it’s super fun, and second you can get inspired by reading someone else’s writing.
I hope this helps!
