bonding over pain that no parent should have to feel
Emmett was 50 years ago - this goes back generations. Mike Brown was not an isolated incident. Trayvon was not an isolated incident. Jordan Davis was not an isolated incident. Our families have got to stop suffering through this.
Let us be vividly clear about this.
What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.
Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and…
Hello friends! I have some bittersweet news. I will be closing my Storenvy shop on the 15th of September. (You will still be able purchase my art prints on Society6.) I’m doing this so I can focus on commissions and on other, more serious endeavors; I have been running an online shop for years now and if I’m honest, it was always very mentally taxing. I will be sending out orders once a week on Thursdays and will close the shop to orders on Monday, September 15th, at midnight EST. Last orders will go out on Thursday, September 19th.
I’ve taken down the pin sets that were up for sale, and added the deal I offer at conventions: any 3 pins for $5. I’ve also added a few more stickers for sale! As a farewell gift, please use the code “please" at checkout for 15% off.
It’s been a pleasure having your patronage on Storenvy and you will be the first to know when and if I open another online venture! Thank you so much, and please signal boost this if you can.
Protests in the St. Louis suburb have continued since Saturday (August 9th). Here’s what we know about the events of the past few days.

What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.
Please do not use the word ‘cripple’ as a verb, noun, or anything
- The younger crowd is pleading for the media to stay: “Show the world what they’re about to do to us!” #Ferguson
- Just told to go into our cars. An on-scene reporter was told to get into his car, and media were told to get into their cars. It’s about to reach a boiling point in Ferguson.
- Protesters are asking the media to stand with them and not return to the media area #Ferguson
more hermione business with anons
anon 1: no yeah like. black people can absolutely tan i don’t really know what that anon was on about, besides #racism obviously. “you’re already brown, what she goes on holiday and suddenly.. SHE IS MORE BROWN?” yes? correct. that can happen
anon 2: thank you! and yeah i did too when i first read them when i was younger, and i absolutely believe that jk rowling pictures them as white and wrote them with the intent of having them read as white too. i already talked about this more fully but ultimately in my fan creations particularly, authorial intent matters very little to me, especially with regard to representation.
