This is such terrible storytelling, I’m crying. Why am I still reading. *Cries over life choices*
Those of you who talk to me on a regular basis will know that I have a horrible habit of reading BL/yaoi manga. Which in itself, isn’t a problem. What is a problem is that more often than not, I find terrible ones rather than good ones —And I keep reading.
So yeah, if you ever want someone to rec horrible BL manga (or even good ones) hit me up. I can show you enough yaoi hands, cheesy storylines, and questionable anatomy to last you for a year.
I am home alone for Thanksgiving. I asked facebook what I should make for dinner.
The first response was Jello.
I’m not sure why, but I had a shit-ton of Jello in my cupboard, so I made it all.
I took pictures of the crew today! Gave em all a lil something too. I simply cannot call myself a pioneer of fashion if my party does not reflect the cause.
I think they all look rather charming.

Fall fashion (and a ballgown cause I fucking love ballgowns) for the 4 houses (with movie and book colorway for Ravenclaw yer welcome). Also played around a little bit more in the second look with styles that aren’t usually associated with that house.[x]
I want all of these. ALL. of these.

yuutfa asked: Andrea, you are an inspiration to us all. (What are the rules of CP style anyway? I'm curious.)
Well, there are a LOT of them, covered off in these two books:
(My hair is really static-y here.)
Basically, it’s a standardization for how to spell words with commonly accepted variations — sovereigntist (not sovereignist), to use a VERY Canadian example. Also, when to capitalize various terms, how to write numbers (commas in 1,000 but not 100; $1 million not $1,000,000), how to deal with acronyms, etc.
I think the numbers thing, and the fact that I spell it ‘per cent’ are the two most common CP weirdnesses you’ll see in my copy. It’s really just about making things standardized and improving readability in copy that should not take more than half a cup of coffee to get through.
Oh, that is fascinating! Since I’m in England, I obviously don’t get CP style around here, but it is always nice seeing the standardised styles of different countries ; u ;
Since I’m trying to train to be a proofreader, this kinda stuff is really interesting to me ; 3 ; Currently trying to learn the Guardian house style for my proofreading course, but not taking it seriously enough, ha ha.
Thanks for explaining!
