College, Fucking, and Saw: greyliliy ladyalexb Follow deadcatwithaflamethrower people l still want to stab over a decade ater Creative Writing Professor at a former college: Welcome to creative writing! By the way, you will not write fantasy, ghost stories, pranormal, or science fiction in this class, as this is a creative writing course." morgynleri What the ever loving fuck is with "creative" writing professors who think that speculative fiction of any stripe ISN'T CREATIVE? thebibliosphere I still remember my own creative writing teacher telling me this because he saw the Terry Pratchett book on my desk and got this smug smirk on his face like "aha, gotcha. He had the nerve to pick it up and call it "popularist fiction, like somehow being popular and easily accessible made it less inherent in intellectual value. I had it in my back pack because I did my final thesis on the evolution of mythology and folk tails into fantasy and sci-fi and the societal importance of telling stories (before anyone asks, no I don't have it, I lost it when I moved continents), and I used Terry Pratchett because there wasn't a single humanitarian issue the man did not touch on Which I told him. And then he kind of floundered and went "ah, well but, it's...well I mean it's not exactly high brow, like neither the fuck was Shakespeare or Dickens you self-important turnip. Dickens was literally selling his stories by the chapter. He was the popular author of his time. Shakespeare was too, he fucking made up words and phrases all the time because the language he needed to express himself didn't exist in the way he needed it too Intellectual elitism is nothing more than a hold over from class warfare and the belief that only certain people should get to be truly educated And it needs to be smashed #Writing #All types have their own value. #Queue 108,090 notes “Creative” Writing

Bad, Beer, and Butt: yveinthesky: earthgirl2788: neveratrest: gallusrostromegalus: allthingshyper: gallusrostromegalus: soup-that-is-2-hot: everything-is-stickers: brummbart: Wasserspeier am Freiburger Münster WINTER IS A BAD TIME. What it feels like to chew 5 Gum IT’S MY FAVORITE GARGOYLE BACK AGAIN FOR WINTERTIME. I want to know the exact conversation that lead to the creation of this abomination Ye olde German architect: “ok, it’s time to put in the rainspouts and last night I was out with the lads and Hans had too much and the point is I had the FUNNIEST idea…” *Holds up drawing* Ye olde German Architect Supervisor: * snorts beer out of his nose.* “YES. BUILD IT IMMEDIATELY.” That’s gussy babe Sooooo I just came back from studying in Freiburg and went on a tour of the Münster with a historian who knew all of the insider secrets and the story is even better than you think.  It took more than 300 years to build the Freiburger Münster (1200s-1500s), so they went through a lot of architects and people who paid those architects. Some of the patrons were dicks and one of those dicks lived in a house right next to the Münster. The asshat kept demanding they work faster and changed his mind every five hours about what he wanted and THEN he refused to pay the architects because he wasn’t happy with what they’d done.  That really pissed the builders off so in retaliation, the head architect built the butt gargoyle facing his house so that every morning for the rest of his life, when the dick looked out his window at the Münster, he’d have to look at a gargoyle butt. So, the defecating gargoyle is a big fat “fuck you” to someone’s dick of a boss that has survived 500 years and two world wars  *standing ovation*
