  3. Anonymous asked: in ava's demon, the demons represent the characters' deadly sin. Lust is represented by a man and a woman and is a bit more nuanced in regards to how Lust is usually portrayed. So far Wrath and Envy has been shown as female. It's likely that Pride is male. The other sins haven't appeared yet so I can't tell you if they are male or female or NB.

    That’s a webcomic right? Cool stuff.

  5. If I could time travel I would go back four weeks and whisper to my poor foolish self, “Take the boring but easier math class you masochistic fuck, if you sign up with this crazy class you’re going to have vague mathy anxiety every night for the whole quarter and that’s not at all worth the lectures being more interesting.”

  7. psst yo yo academia friends

    I am intensely curious about any trends you’ve observed in how much professors of various disciplines care about anal formatting details.

    Near Eastern Studies: A LOT. YOU DROPPED A FEW SPACES IN YOUR CITATIONS??? LOL *MARKS OFF HALF A GRADE FOR FORMATTING*

    Linguistics: (an actual paraphrased exchange)

    Me: Do you have any opinion on how to format our papers and citations?

    Prof: Not really. Have your name on it. Cite your sources. Look forward to your paper!

    I have only gotten one formatting-related complaint from any linguistics professor, ever, and it did not affect my grade: he wanted single-space instead of double. Meanwhile the syllabi that they hand out tend to be full of slightly nonstandard citation styles. It’s like their own way of flipping the bird to prescriptivism, yet again.

    Math: I HAVE NEVER WRITTEN A SINGLE PAPER FOR ANY OF THE MATH CLASSES I HAVE TAKEN, NOR ANYTHING GENERALLY RELATED TO DEGREE REQUIREMENT. THERE IS A BELIEF THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF UNDERGRADUATES WILL NOT HAVE THE BACKGROUND, INSIGHT, OR LUCK TO COME ACROSS ANYTHING EVEN VAGUELY WORTHY OF SHARING WITH OTHERS IN ELABORATE WRITTEN FORM. THIS BELIEF IS CORRECT, THANK YOU FOR NOT MAKING ME FREAK OUT OVER COMING UP WITH SOMETHING. (To be serious, there are some enrichment settings where you’re asked to write something at the end, but it’s a super serious event and they give you mentors and everything. Math papers are tough shit and I’m pretty sure there are a lot of things more important than your margin size. Also, everyone writes in LaTex.)

    Computer Science: WHAT WHY DO YOU WANT ME TO WRITE A PAPER ABOUT THIS THING I MADE??? WHY ISN’T A README GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU? WHAT WILL AN ESSAY ACCOMPLISH!? (That said, I haven’t had to turn in this paper yet so I don’t know how they’re grading it.)

    Art: Maybe I’ve been really lucky, because all of my instructors in the arts cared significantly more about content more than formatting, although they’d give us a template that they wanted us to follow.

    Still gonna say here that I’d totally read it.

    I’m sincerely curious how many people would read a fic where post-canon Soujirou tenatively falls in love with an OC hooker and then runs away.

    Because that sounds to me like the kind of fic that no one really reads, and my desire to write that fic is not so great that I’d do it just for myself.

    OKAY JULY FINE YOU AREN’T ALONE

    grumble maybe after I’m done with my sou’n’shishio’n’yumi kick

  15. Anonymous asked: Sort-of-romantic-thing with a prostitute? Like, he bailed when he started to develop feelings for her?

    I think he can handle Some Feelings. He handles Some Feelings admirably shortly after the Kenshin fight. It’s dealing with someone else’s feelings colliding with his own feelings where it gets messy.

    Plotless pointless deathfic is also something that has fallen out of fashion, though. I think.

    Among different circles? Yes. There is a group of people who disdain fluff. There is a group of people who disdain “grimdark.” These groups of people have a fairly small intersection.

    Though for what it’s worth, I think it says something about the inherent appeal of fluff that fluff survives as something produced and consumed in roughly the same patterns as it was 10 years ago, whereas no one writes—

    wait no I was about to say something totally untrue

    I just remembered one extremely popular fic and I almost physically groaned

    no never mind, people still write really stupid melodramatic dark fic. It’s just that they’ve decided that death isn’t the best event to exploit.

  19. That’s a good question about Kenshin. Maybe he did odd jobs. He acquired a skill for doing laundry somewhere in that ten years of wandering… HAHAHA

    SOMEONE WRITE ME FIC WHERE SOUJIROU WANDERS BACK TO KAMIYA DOJO TO DO LAUNDRY ALONGSIDE KENSHIN
