Definitely Bowie’s hand there, in this photo posted by Iman. It’s actually really ironic when you think about the word “coke” for a bit, hah.

"Every bit the million-dollar star, Elizabeth – she was always Elizabeth – lived her life on high drama. When I look back at my photographs of her, it’s always this set that I come back to – a young David Bowie in a nervous embrace, Elizabeth in total command. In the fading light of Hollywood director George Cukor’s home, a popstar meeting a superstar. At Elizabeth’s request, I had arranged the whole thing. An unlikely meeting, an intoxicating pair; the shots were instantly snapped up all over the world." - Terry O’Neill on shooting Elizabeth Taylor and David Bowie

"Floral, but masculine."

I swear, if I have to read ONE MORE corsetry fic in which the author has to somehow affirm that the feminine clothing only reinforces the masculinity of the dude currently in it, I am going to scream.

I KNOW [insert dude character name here] is a dude.  I AM AWARE.  Some frilly knickers and a pair of silk stockings are not going to change that.  What is so terrible about femininity that you have to deny that your dude character is engaging in it even when THE WHOLE POINT OF THE DAMN FIC is him engaging in femininity?

Admit that the corsetry is feminine, because it is.  Admit that it makes your dude character look feminine, because it would.  Femininity is a construct, and corsetry is one of the tools that helps construct it.  The idea is not to take corsetry and make it masculine, because you can’t.  The idea is that men can engage in femininity as it is, because neither femininity nor masculinity can define your gender for you.

One of a few concept sketches for a client.

While it’s only a rough sketch, I adore this - it captures the romantic yet vaguely sinister feel of the scene perfectly.

Listen Dr. Creative Writing, you will pry my double sentence spacing from my cold, dead, and lifeless hands.

(Yes I did steal that quote from a defence of the Oxford comma.  Same concept applies.)

The good news: Dr. _________ is willing to be the faculty adviser for my potential writer’s club, which is better news than maybe you realise, because the faculty member on campus whose specialty is prose fiction has newborn twin babies, so I wasn’t sure whom I was going to shanghai into doing it.

The bad news: The OED, the use of which was my original purpose in dropping by Dr. _________’s office, didn’t actually tell me what I wanted to know about the linguistic origins of these two words.

Further bad news: I forgot (again) to ask him if/when he’s teaching his Shakespeare class next semester, and when his lectures on Othello and The Merchant of Venice will be.  Sorry, Korena.

The conclusion here is that Dr. ________ is actually completely useless, because if his wife hadn’t popped in to tell me that he had expressed interest in being the club’s adviser this post would only have bad and further bad news.

Everything that you wanted I have done. You asked that the child be taken; I took him. You cowered before me; I was frightening. I have reordered time. I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you! I am exhausted from living up to your expectations of me.  Isn’t that generous?

Rules: Give us five random things about yourself; pass it on to ten of your followers. Repost, don’t reblog. I was tagged by liz011.

  1. I get irrationally jealous over Dr. ________’s copy of the OED every time I’m in his office.  The jealousy comes from the fact that his copy used to be my grandmother’s, and I always feel like it should be mine, but it’s irrational because I have the twin of that copy which used to be my cousin’s, so it isn’t as though I lost anything.
  2. The longest single thing I have ever written is an unfinished Harry Potter fanfiction, and was a Harry/Draco rework of books six and seven.  I was suitably ashamed of it even when I was still writing it.
  3. I love oranges but despise orange-derived or orange-flavoured things, including orange juice.
  4. People who misinterpret Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” make me sad.
  5. My favourite word in English is melancholy.

I’m not going to tag anyone because I’m getting just a little bit weary of these, but if I normally tag you and you really want to do it, please do.
