True story:

The two stories that inspired me to start writing Rumbelle fanfic were Sanctuary by sfiddy and A Belle Epoque by monkess.

So go blame them for the boners and angst.

What, there’s hardly an angsty bone(r) in my body! I mean, just look at the last chapter of A Belle Epoque, some fop suggests Cinderella would give birth faster if they squeeze her corset up real tight.

I am also pretty sure that is exactly how childbirth works, yes. It’s more your fault that I wrote a Victoria time travel AU.

Best thing about my job: one of the women there is a Rumbeller.  She has a thirteen year old granddaughter but dammit, we spent all day today giggling like perverted school girls about the fact that Bobby has done nude scenes.

Awesome! I have a couple big Once fans at work (one guy saw my Rumple background on my computer and wanted me to send it to him so he could put it on his). But no one that I can giggle like schoolgirls with! I need that!

I work with only women and it’s never more than two of us at a time, so it’s pretty easy to giggle uncontrollably at shit. I don’t know that I could go back to working in a male dominated industry again, I’ve gotten spoiled.

I foresee nothing going wrong here at all. What on earth are you talking about?

Alejandra Leos Makes 8th Trans Woman Murdered this Summer

ughgodwhatever:

7 Trans Women of Color; all killed during the season that holds Pride Month. The queer community is still abuzz with the last vestiges of the season that promises parades, alcohol, and ‘a freedom to be you.’ So often, the larger LGBTQ “community,” has this idea that we’re all equally policed for being a part of this population. Without doubt, the summer of 2014 has proven that this is not the case.

…are the names of the 7 women that have fallen this season before Alejandra; and there is no protest for them. They are the silent-fallen that have fallen silent. There is an epidemic of trans female genocide; a cure to this maddening, tragic plague has yet to be seen.

Please #RememberAlejandra. If we continue to brush over the victimization of TWoC then again and again these beautiful lives will be cut short; again and again, #GirlsLikeUs will be made victims of hatred.

Adoption!verse future fic and Bae’s “Real Mom”

woodelf68:

standbyyourmantis:

Tri-sarah-top-saurus said: Teenage Bae has to tell his parents that he got Emma pregnant? Belle is distraught that she has failed as a mother and doesn’t react very well? Obviously everyone is very emotional and Bae lashes out…???

This is part one of probably 3 on this particular installment, because no way I was going to be able to addresss ALL of the issues here in one little fic.  So keep your eyes peeled!

Read More

I have to say I’m disappointed in Bae. Even if they were using birth control and it failed, I still think having sex that young is irresponsible because of that very possibility. Even if he’s emotionally ready to be a dad, and he and Emma are ready to commit to each other, they’re certainly not in a financially prepared place to raise a child. 

He’s seventeen (barely) and she’s sixteen and they were stupid.  I’m going to get a little bit more into his thought process in the third installment, but sex is one of those things that is hard to think rationally about in the moment and especially when you’re a teenager and you’re inexperienced and hormones are flying at you out of nowhere.

Frankly, I’m really lucky that I wasn’t a teen mom because my ex and I made some stupid decisions and I’m just really lucky that I didn’t get stuck with any consequences to them.  I thank my lucky stars daily for that, actually.  It’s not really out of character for the majority of teenage boys (or girls for that matter) to make stupid decisions like that.
