This isn’t really my fandom, but it’s just too funny. (Yes, I am intensely susceptible to bad puns….)

It’s a dream come true for anyone who has ever spent an evening at the Renaissance Faire wishing that they could wear the pretty dresses AND the awesome armor. We utterly love this fashion spread from designer Pinkabsinthe.

THIS IS PERFECT

dduane:

"It’s also very amusing to watch the contortions of literary critics faced with talented writers like the late lamented Iain Banks and Joanne Harris, who are equally adept in literary and speculative fiction and refuse to apologise for or justify what they write. And if the definitive characteristic of literary fiction is sublime prose, then at his peak Terry Pratchett is surely the finest prose stylist writing today. So this is where we get terms like counter-factual and magical realism, to save reviewers from sullying their copy with words like SF and fantasy."

I so wish I had had this essay to hand to that creative writing professor in college who looked at me and said, “Why are you wasting your talent on fantasy?”
