When you are 13 years old,
the heat will be turned up too high
and the stars will not be in your favor.
You will hide behind a bookcase
with your family and everything left behind.
You will pour an ocean into a diary.
When they find you, you will be nothing
but a spark above a burning bush,
still, tell them
Despite everything, I really believe people are good at heart.

When you are 14,
a voice will call you to greatness.
When the doubters call you crazy, do not listen.
They don’t know the sound
of their own God’s whisper. Use your armor,
use your sword, use your two good hands.
Do not let their doubting
drown out the sound of your own heartbeat.
You are the Maid of Untamed Patriotism.
Born to lead armies into victory and unite a nation
like a broken heart.

When you are 15, you will be punished
for learning too proudly. A man
will climb onto your school bus and insist
your sisters name you enemy.
When you do not hide,
he will point his gun at your temple
and fire three times. Three years later,
in an ocean of words, with no apologies,
you will stand before the leaders of the world
and tell them your country is burning.

When you are 16 years old,
you will invent science fiction.
The story of a man named Frankenstein
and his creation. Soon after you will learn
that little girls with big ideas are more terrifying
than monsters, but don’t worry.
You will be remembered long after
they have put down their torches.

When you are 17 years old,
you will strike out Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig
one right after the other.
Men will be afraid of the lightening
in your fingertips. A few days later
you will be fired from the major leagues
because “Girls are too delicate to play baseball”

You will turn 18 with a baby on your back
leading Lewis and Clark
across North America.

You will turn 18 
and become queen of the Nile.

You will turn 18 
and bring justice to journalism.

You are now 18, standing on the precipice,
trembling before your own greatness.

This is your call to leap.

There will always being those
who say you are too young and delicate
to make anything happen for yourself.
They don’t see the part of you that smolders.
Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound
of your own heartbeat.

You are the first drop of a hurricane.
Your bravery builds beyond you. You are needed
by all the little girls still living in secret,
writing oceans made of monsters and
throwing like lightening.

You don’t need to grow up to find greatness.
You are stronger than the world has ever believed you to be.
The world laid out before you to set on fire.
All you have to do
is burn.

Remember that movie in which Jack Black was a teacher and building a rock band and when a little black chubby girl asked to be a singer he only said “sure! let me hear you” and the moment she started using her beautiful voice his lit up like all of his dreams came…

That scene is so goddamn important to me.

Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.

I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.

And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.

Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too.  These Space Valkyries  should have been left in.

They really should have.

WHAT.

THE.

FUCK.

I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.

Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.

I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”

DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.

These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.

Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.

I need a series about these people. Like, now. I mean the Rogue Squadron book series is grand and all, has men and women and aliens and everything, but I don’t think it ever had A-Wing pilots old enough to be grannies.

(Yes I know they’re mostly about the X-Wings but work with me here.)

One of the things the EU got right was the presence of women in the rebel alliance, and not just among the Jedi; they were very present in the fleet, notably in the X-Wing series.

Oh 80’s.  You got it so wrong, sometimes …

Otherworld politics, revisited

nornoriel:

So awhile back I made a post entitled Otherworld politics, in which I discussed the fact that amazingly enough, realms full of entities are not necessarily going to get on with other realms full of entities, and entities from the same realm may not necessarily get along either.  This seems like a very difficult concept for some polytheists to understand, who will insist that you should hail all…

Sit down, tumblr and let Uncle Jim Bob tell you about the time someone once suggested that because I got on well with Artemis, I was certain to get on well with Skadhi, too.

(While obviously one huntress is not the same as another, with some deities, if you’re a person who gets on well with X kinda deity, sometimes this is a thing. For instance, I have met a few tricksters with whom I get on, I’ve met a few death gods from various pantheons with whom I am on good terms etc etc, so in theory, the suggestion is not that far fetched.)

Short version: Ahahahahahaha, no. I smell like Loki and Milady does not share with other Hunters. See also: why me and angels do not get on. (I don’t like Daddy Dearest, they don’t like Mama Lilith.. We’d get into ‘my Mum’s better than your Dad’ arguments.)

There’s a big difference between saying ‘I don’t think anyone should be involved with X deity/spirit’ and ‘I don’t think *I* should be involved with X deity/spirit’. The latter is cool, the former is douchebaggery of the highest order. Hell, you can even say ‘I don’t get how someone finds the things X deity/spirit stands for important/holy/worth that much time and effort’, but that’s not the same thing as saying they absolutely *aren’t*. Just that you don’t get it.

That’s okay. There are enough wonderful, holy, magical, mysteries in the worlds and the people, spirits and gods who live in them for everyone to follow their goddamn hearts. You’re not doing it wrong if you don’t.

Filed under jim has a pet peeve seriously though i considered trying to say hi to skadhi once just once it was like having my head beaten with a hammer engraved with the word NO
