I really should stop reading Sailor Moon manga and go to bed but….
Solas Being Race Gated Makes Sense
Not because of needing little elven babies, thankfully. Hopefully.
Solas might be race-gated because of The Fade and how the different origins would presumably react to it. The Fade is influenced heavily by your thoughts, so it would follow that what you expect colors your every interaction there. If the Solas romance involves The Fade heavily, or Solas feels very strongly about who he is with romantically agreeing with his views on The Fade, we’re only left with the Dalish, really.
Warning to anyone who uses deviantART! [PLEASE REBLOG]
If you get a note like this from this guy, ignore it. Delete it. If you ask what his daughter likes, he’ll try sending you a very suspicious folder with random art in it, as well as a virus.
Please spread this around because someone who doesn’t know any better can really wind up getting screwed over. Thank you!

a welsh tradition I think needs to come back is guys spending ages carving a spoon with all these designs and shit on it and giving it to the girl he wants to date how cute is that
I was just thinking off adding this as a hobbit tradition in one of my fics as a gift from…
I ADORE lovespoons, partially because I’m interested in Welsh, but also because each and every of those designs has a specific meaning, and the carvers (often sailors, whihc is why many of them feature anchors or ropes) would create like a special message for their sweetheart by the combination of symbols. They can get really intricate and some even have interactive parts and just like…wow what an awesomely lovely tradition and I wish more people knew about them because fuck engagement rings give people lovespoons.
Zitkala-Ša, also known as Gertrude Simmons Bonnin, was the most amazing woman you’ve never heard of.
A writer, editor, musician, teacher and political activist, she was born on February 22, 1876 on the Yankton Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Her mother was Sioux and her father, who abandoned the family when she was very young, was European-American.
When she was eight, missionaries came to the res and took Zitkala-Ša along with several other children to the White’s Manual Labor Institute in Wabash, Indiana, one of many such institutions where Native children were forced to assimilate into white American culture. She studied piano and violin and eventually took the place of her teacher when she resigned. When she received her diploma in 1895, she delivered a speech on women’s rights.
She earned a scholarship to Earlham College, where she continued to study music. From 1897-99, she played with the New England Conservatory in Boston and played at the Paris Exposition in 1900. She collaborated with composer William F. Hanson on the world’s first Native American opera, based entirely on Sioux melodies that had previously existed only as oral tradition. She would play the melodies and Hanson transcribed them. The Sun Dance Opera debuted in 1913 to warm reviews, but I can find no recordings of it, and it seems it’s never performed.
Zitkala-Ša also wrote a number of collections of Native American stories and legends. She wrote them in Latin when she was at school and then translated them into English. She was the first Native person to do so in her own words, without a white editor or translator. In addition, she wrote extensively about her schooling and how it left her torn between her Sioux heritage and her assimilation into white culture. Her writings were published in The Atlantic Monthly and in Harper’s and she served as editor for the American Indian Magazine.
Unsurprisingly, most of her writings were political. She was a fierce yet charismatic advocate for Native American rights. Her efforts helped pass the Indian Citizenship Act and the Indian Reorganization Act. Having founded the National Coalition of American Indians, she spent the rest of her life fighting to protect our many indigenous communities from exploitation.
Her accomplishments were incredible- but have you ever heard of her? I had never heard of her either. Just another example of a history-changing woman omitted from the history books.
