me when i see a cat: CAT! cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat cat

Fun fact: when I see cute animals, I forget English and automatically revert to my native Hungarian. I don’t know what bystanders make of me, reciting guttural gibberish to rabbits.

But the real question is, what are you SAYING to the rabbits? Is it ‘RABBIT! rabbit rabbit rabbit rabbit rabbit rabbit bunny bunny bunny awww cute bunnyyyyy’?

Well, I usually say the Hungarian equivalent of ‘bun bun bun lil bun look at your tiny spoon-shaped ears awww bun brave little lawnmower bun’, but sometimes I say ‘hey rabbits, my sister’s gonna go to med school’ because I think everyone should know.

I live in Japan, and I always revert to English to talk to small animals, and I was cooing at this tiny little fluff machine of a puppy in baby english like “hello you’re so cute such a cute hello hello yess you’re good” and the 70 year old Japanese lady that was walking him started to *translate the baby talk english into Japanese* for her pup. She wanted to be sure he understood it too.

I got real petty over on the Facebook page and IT WAS GLORIOUS.

This is me, going to check out Legendary Books now…

Publisher: We think that the way the fantasy genre treats women is problematic so we’re going to try and do better

A Fool: If you don’t like it why don’t you make your own!

Publisher: That

That is literally what we just said we are doing


BOY it feels good to be back in this particular saddle!

AHAHAHAHAHA we have a winner for today!

 May I just say (and also condemning myself to death here) that I don’t actually like advertise and promote a fantasy book just by the character sexuality? I mean, LGBT characters in books are great, as well as a large assortment of characters from different ethnicities and origins, but a fantasy books should be know for it’s fantasy features and great plot. If the book it’s trash (not this one in particular) it can have all his LGBT characters you want but it will still be trash… as many book with a lot of straight character can be trash too as it can be very good, just like a book with a lot of LGBT character can be very good too.

You know, we’ve been getting this a lot since this post started blowing up.

Honest answer is that we advertise our books ALL THE TIME talking about the plot, the characters, and the world. That’s the main advertising we do. It’s where 99.9% of our ad money goes.

The above post was NOT a paid advertisement. It was supposed to be a one-off joke. Yet it got this huge reaction and has garnered massive attention. Heck, it ended up on YOUR dash, when you’ve clearly never heard of us our our books before despite all the advertising we’ve done over the years.

If this one post, which we DIDN’T pay to promote, got your attention, when tens of thousands of dollars of paid advertising have never reached you, would you say there’s a good chance that this message resonated with people, and they’re happy to see themselves not only represented, but stood up for?

As someone who makes a conscious effort to read things with characters of marginalized identities, and by authors of marginalized identities, I DO want to know if the characters/author are LGBT.

I won’t buy something JUST because of this, but it gets me to look at the descriptions more carefully, so I can choose from a pool that is going to give me, or others, some representation.

I would rather support artists/publishers who did this than artists/publishers who don’t, and so whether characters/an author is LGBT is absolutely a factor for me and I consider it a perfectly legitimate and useful thing to include in advertising.

Just FWIW.

I hate to be That Guy but… what exactly is up with this publishing company? I mean, it doesn’t really seem to exist to be honest. I looked it up and while I was able to find one publishing house under this name, it does not seem to be the same one, as they aren’t publishing books by this author. So I looked up the author’s work on Amazon, and it said it’s published by Living Art Enterprises… another company that, as far as I can tell, doesn’t exist. Usually when Amazon lists a publisher that doesn’t seem to exist when you search for it, that indicates the book is self-published. Which is fine… but it seems a little disingenuous for this page to advertise itself as a publisher of diverse fiction when in fact it’s probably just this one dude’s work. :/

Yeeeah, hahaha, welcome to the awesome world of company names. There is an existing Legacy Books who unfortunately dominate the Google search results, and they’re not us. They’re not fantasy, they’re not in our state … they might not even be in America? I don’t remember.

Anyway, OUR website is https://underrealm.net. That’s where you can find all our work at any time.

To your other point: you’re right! Or you were. Until about a year ago, I was self published. I had this idea of creating this diverse and representative world in my books, and I did pretty well at it!

BUT, it was very correctly pointed out to me - that’s kind of bullshit. It’s not really a diverse and representative world, no matter what’s in the books, if it’s all coming from me, a cishet white guy.

That’s why, about a year ago, my wife and I formed Legacy Books and immediately signed several authors, focusing on finding excellent authors of diverse gender, race, sexuality, and ability.

Their work is on the cusp of publication. The first examples of it can be found on our special Patreon campaign called the Chronicles of Underrealm, which you can find at https://Patreon.com/legacybooks. And there’s a lot more to come in 2018.

Sorry, I realize all this shit is confusing. It’s annoying to us too. Don’t worry, one day we’ll be a Big Deal and own the right URL and everything and my name will, I’m sure, be eclipsed by the incredible authors we’re still bringing on.

Sooo, how would I get these on the shelves of my bookstore that I help do fantasy/sci-fi buying for?

If you’re set up through Ingram distribution, all our hardcovers are available through their catalog! Paperbacks coming soon.

“no one will read a book if the character is gay.”



Someone just told me that no one would read my novel if the main character is gay.


I have bought books specifically BECAUSE the main character is gay. Often.

jesus christ toad what the fuck is your damage

He was an activist who inspired millions to fight for their rights. He knew what was wrong with our country and risked his life to help his people achieve equality.  In the society where black were treated like animal he did everything possible to change this. His brave soul, his will and courage changed the history of America , changed the people. He made us believe we can win this war. He payed for it with his life. He will always be remembered.

this should be reblogged everyday just so people can know that black rage is always justified. always.

It is our duty as feminists to protect and respect women in Hijabs

Now. More. Than. Ever.

Question: if I see someone pull off a Hijab, what should I do? I know there are reasons they are worn so I want to if i should stand in between them and who did this, should i protect them from view somehow, or something else? This has been happening a lot so I feel it’s something everyone needs to know.

Good question! I cannot correctly and effectively answer, as I am a white, non-Muslim person; however, I will reblog in case any of my followers can answer. 

I asked my Hijabi friend, so here’s one Hijabi’s answer: 

“my opinion is, definitely try cover them or give them something to cover themselves with. And perhaps shoo off the person, without putting oneself in danger! God forbid, if that happened to me, I would like someone to come and comfort me and give me something to cover my hair with and then help me report it to the cops “

(Followers, if any of you are hijabi and would like to expand on this answer or offer alternatives, please do.)

If u see it happen to 1 of us, pls cover our head + hair with a coat or shawl or any piece of cloth, while hugging us in comfort. Please don’t get hurt by lashing out @ the perpetrators in any way, coz if they dare to do that, they’re probably too far gone in their own hatred to listen to any reason. Much love + Thank You to anyone who supports us.

yes !! everything said here is important af. if you see someone pull off a girl’s hijab immediately cover her hair and provide comfort. don’t talk to the perpetrator but try to get the woman out of there if you can. maybe if you have a scarf on you at the time give it to her so she can wear it until she’s alone and can replace her hijab. please please protect muslim girls because we already had it hard before donald trump became president and now its gonna be worse with people going around thinking their violence and cruelty is justified 

for my other white ppl who might have a hard time, it’s my understanding that a hijab is like a major item of clothing, not an accessory like a hat or a scarf.
so think abt it more like if someone just ripped someone’s shirt or skirt off. u don’t want to be left there exposed or have to walk home without it.

everyone, even outside America needs to protect our Muslim sisters in these times.

as a man, what would be the best thing to do? should i turn my head and avoid looking at their hair? can i still offer a jacket or something similar?

^I’m hoping someone has an answer islamaphpbia is on the rise in my town and I want to be a good male non Muslim ally

For men, yes please, we would prefer it if you avoided looking at our hair, and if we don’t have something to substitute as a hijab at that moment, anything you could lend us, a jacket, etc, would be very appreciated.

Also, since most girls avoid physical contact with men they’re not related to, please do not hug them, but rather shoo the offender away if you can, or at least escort the girl to a safe place. You can still offer words of encouragement and support. Furthermore, understand that the victim may not be very welcoming towards you because she’ll obviously be shaken, and won’t know where you are coming from. If that’s the case, please still give her something to cover herself (hijab is very important, think of it as someone ripping your shirt off) and stand some distance away until you are sure she’s in safe hands.

Thank you so much for your support, we really appreciate it, god bless all of you.

In the horrible climate we’re currently in, please take note of this.

Reblogging this again for the guy-instructions


Sharing for all those out there who don’t deserve this treatment and to spread awareness on what to do. I’m happy to come across this so I know how to help.




tony in ms marvel is such a fucking????? pure gift to my heart in this time of stress and struggle???????? tony + kids content is my everything my heart is so full he’s!!!! such a good egg i lov him

tony stark, lame uncle and #1 emergency contact

anyway, i’m crying,




choking on water is the worst because how do you stop choking? drink something? well ive got some bad news for you

Lean your head forward, preferably to knee level, and let the water kind of drain out of your mouth. When your are able to, take deep slow breaths. No heimlich maneuver or physical assists from somebody else should be used beyond this, otherwise you could vomit and escalate the issue. Its about keeping the larynx open. Hopefully this helps.

Reblog to fucking save a life.

This started off as an idea about Reigen having too many kids to keep track of them, and somehow turned into pacifying ghosts with strawberry milk.

The Giants of Earth

Aliens are too often depicted as very human-like. Bilateral symmetry, main sensory organs on the head, dexterous hands on arm-like appendages, etc. Even size is relatively close or averages to around human size. But when you look at our own world, humans are giants. Relatively few animals have mass comparable to or greater than humans. Our height is particularly astounding since we evolved bipedalism and adopted a vertical stance rather than one that’s more horizontal, which you see even in other bipedal animals like birds.

So what if the same holds true for humanity compared to aliens? There are many advantages to having a smaller body, after all: fewer necessary resources to live and grow, more stable stances if they walk on three or more legs, better adaptability to cataclysmic events, and many others. If the species comes from a world with higher gravity especially, being lower to the ground is far more preferable rather than spending a lot of energy fighting the higher gravity.

So when humanity arrives on the interstellar scene, how would a universe filled with (generally) smaller sentients react to the new giants?

This is the greatest progression of events I have ever read, where’s my historical gay romance novel about this


Local King Cannot Stop Promoting His Boyfriend

where’s the lush period drama about this series of events?

fun thing about king James, this guy was fairly public about his bf (more public than what was acceptable). He threw lots of extravagant parties with his man on his arm. It pissed off the church obviously so to get them off his back, he’s the one that ordered the third translation of the Bible from Hebrew to English (the King James Version aka the Authorized Version) so the Bible every hot blooded all American Christian reads today was literally just written so a very gay king could fuck his boyfriend in peace.

oh my god this is hilarious


“guys, guys. I know this looks kinda gay, and i promise i have a good explanation for all this, but have you considered… that jesus… is also gay? checkmate, heteros.”
