Pleased to meet you. You can call me Variety. This tumblr is a miscellaneous jumble of things, including lots of art and fandom ramblings. For more about me and what you can expect me to post, see this post I also have a fanfic tag and a TF2 side-blog.
And, of course, feel free to ask me anything. AIM: ladygyr (All lowercase.) Steam: VarietyShow
Timezone: Central European
I love video games and cultural criticism.
Currently full of spoilers for Fire Emblem: Awakening. FE13 tag is "Roan and the Emblem Enigmas".
I’ve been working on a little project called Night Vale Inspires, which is, quite simply, a series of typographic posters with moving or inspiring quotes about love, and life, and being. Things that have stuck with me from the show. Maybe they’ve stuck with you, too.
If you have any lines that stay with you—like a spider-like flickering in your peripheral so constant that it becomes a familiar comfort, you know the ones—then feel free to drop them in my ask box. I might make up a poster for it. :]
F I R S T L Y: Though this poster may seem humorous by nature, it was not intended as a joke because not only are rape jokes disgusting but I am as serious about my love for all things Harry Potter as I am about my stance on social and sexual politics. Rape is an unpleasant but extremely relevant topic in our times and combatting its culture is as important in the magical world as in the muggle world, so I hope that every child will be taught that using a love potion that comes in a can with a percentage on it is just as bad.
Because even Harry Potter can teach you to fight rape culture.
(Feel free to substitute “potions” for any mood or judgement-altering substances/drugs in the nonfictional world.)
What a great idea for how to teach lessons and raise points about rape culture through fantasy literature.
this THIS THIS THIS TW = rape
all dem love potions stuff in the Wizarding world was weeeird
and then knowing Voldemort was the result of rape because his mother made his father take love potions since before he was born.
Was it Seamus Finegan from Gryffindor who said his mother cast a love spell on his muggle father or something too?
