„Strumpfwaschmaschineangst“ (the uncertainty of what happens to socks in the wash) is a recognised condition somewhere I can’t quite remember at the moment, and a parable about the ineffability of life manipulated by a greater power than itself. Or something like that, anyway.

And my fave socks, the Rossmann ones, have done just this. Maddening.

Necromancer old woman who summons the dead to help her out with knitting projects

"Can you fetch me the angora yarn? I’m starting a blanket for our Nancy’s newest."

And then undead Napoleon or Ghengis Khan or whatever just sigh and are like, 

"The cream or the lilac?"

"The lilac, dearie."

Well, the roof is on fire, my kitchen’s in shambles, an Orc on a motorcycle came riding down a tunnel in our basement being moved around by bound earth elementals, and our party Technomancer is incapable of lying to machines that speak in old English, so I really don’t know what you want us to do. By The Mage, in response to our GM’s comment that he thought we’d be done with this section of the run in 30 minutes

An AU where for your entire life you’ve only seen black and white, until you receive the first touch from your soulmate and color blooms before your very eyes. The colors don’t stay when you’re alone, but when they’re there by your side and you’re touching? Everything is beautiful.

But what if you touch them and you look around and see all the colors, and beauty.You get caught in the moment and ask  ”Do you see it too?” And they reply “What are you talking about?” 

That’s okay, I didn’t need my heart.

What is Heralds of Valdemar?
The Heralds of Valdemar is a thirty-one volume series broken up into trilogies, a few stand alone novels, a saga of four books, and a duology. It is a high fantasy series written by Mercedes Lackey and set in the world of Velgarth with most plot lines focusing on the country of Valdemar.
Valdemar is a small kingdom formed when the baron of a war mongering culture decided against his culture and broke away. He prayed to the universe for some sort of aid to protect the innocents that came with him and spirits in the form of silvery white horses, sentient brings with their own powers and gifts, appeared, and paired to those best able to protect and care for the people of this new kingdom. Written at different points in history, the stories of Valdemar’s history is item told in trilogy sets with a few exceptions to the rule. The books, while written before Young Adult, was a genre, often falls under this title with character driven plots centered around a rather dramatic coming of age story. [x]

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.
