Drink You In

Alexander is a lonely young lawyer in Victorian London, living with the constant fear that someone will discover the attraction he feels towards other men. When he’s sent to Transylvania to help a minor nobleman with some real-estate contracts, it’s a welcome distraction from his life. Enchanted first by the forests and mountains, Alexander’s attention and awe is soon captured by Vlad, the handsome groundsman at the castle where he’s staying. But Alexander’s new lover has a dark secret of his own, one connected to the strange stinging bites Alexander’s felt as he drifts off to sleep each night…

I DID THE THING. I started with the thing that was easiest for me to do, and from here I’ll probably move onto stuff like broken robots being tenderly repaired by lonely hackers, orca merman single dads, bara werewolves who wanna bang fat ladies, shapeshifting birds, who knows. STUFF. 

Idk how much I’ll cross-post because the whole idea of this is supposed to be that it’s totally shameless and let’s be real I HAVE AN ABUNDANCE OF SHAME AT ALL TIMES. So I may not link to everything that comes out who knows yet. If I do, the tag I use will be ‘IDfic’. 

OKAY YEAH SO HERE’S MY THING HI I’M GOING BACK TO BED NOW. 

So “Isobel Dorian” is your pen name? Please do link to everything that you write under this handle because there’s not a single goddamn thing on that list that I wouldn’t want to read.

I guess it’s a pen name, yeah! I haven’t ever had one, so it’s weird to think of having one now. Essentially I wanted something to use as a marker that this is a discrete project with a particular way of operating and set of goals. 

Under ‘Mary Borsellino’, the only self-published writing things are zines of various kinds, and the reissue version of the teen mess of a novel I wrote when I was a teen mess. Everything else is through a publication or publisher, because my self-esteem is a nuclear winter and outside validation is the only way I have faith in anything I’ve done, basically.

UNTIL NOW! ‘Isobel Dorian’ is going to be my way of indicating that a story has been written and released by me for the express purpose of catering to other people’s ids, as opposed to the more complicated and emotionally fraught disaster that is releasing stuff under ‘Mary Borsellino’. 

It’s going to be shameless and silly and fun and an adventure. The hangups can go attach themselves barnacle-like to the stuff I have coming out under ‘Mary Borsellino’ and leave the ‘Isobel Dorian’ things alone. 

And thank you! I’ll link to things when they come out, in that case. :D

The Soul-Fraying Games page 3 - written by platosbikeseat and drawn by rendigo!

The art for this one is killing me, omg

This page had me laughing so much

I CANNOT GET OVER EVERYONE’S CHARACTERS

KANAYA YOU MADE THAT CHARACTER ON DEVIANTART. NOT EVEN TROLL DEVIANTART. YOU MADE THAT ON A HUMAN DOLLMAKER DEVIANTART AND CAREFULLY DREW THE HORNS IN.

That ‘being passively suicidal is like having a melodramatic roommate’ post reminded me of one of the endless series of hilarious-to-me conversations that have taken place with my psychiatrist, this one being:

Mary: “For a long time I was… I guess if there was a word for being, like, not actively trying to kill myself or anything, but just wishing I didn’t exist? Do you know what I mean?”

Psychiatrist: “Yes. That’s called ‘suicidal’.” 

It was just one of those oooooooh, okay! moments for me where someone looked at one of my metaphorical walk-it-off scrapes and said um Mary your bone is like sticking out and you have no arm. 

Look, it’s just FUNNY to me, all right? Like I don’t even know how to explain it properly. I’m awful. This whole post is awful. Hi.

(ps I’m not like that now so nobody worry)

ONE KISS IS SUFFICIENT, you cant be too greedy about these things u_u

therandominmyhead:

Here’s some English version edits of the new character profiles that just went up a little bit ago. I tried to remember how I did the other ones but couldn’t find the right fonts again and gave up so sorry they’re so stylistically inconsistent ><
As usual, the information in these is varyingly different to the information in their famitsu profiles from last week, so there’s a few new tidbits in these.

"We’re trying to appeal to the adult female audience so we skimmed some of the popular titles with that demographic and are pleased to bring you this new fantasy adventure game where your team mates are giant talking pigeons, handsome lawyers in nice suits, and giant horned bull men that you can date."

You can date either the pigeon the pretty lawyer or the bull man and the two you don’t date will date each other.

I wish we could clone you so you could get this project going. Healing people is a secondary benefit of cloning technology when compared to being able to clone you for this project. Kellystarter. Klonestarter.

You have my axe.  And my endorsement.

I feel like this is relevant to sharpestrose's interests…

*WIPES TEAR* it’s so beautiful.

“You yourself never loved; you never love!” On this the other women joined, and such a mirthless, hard, soulless laughter rang through the room that it almost made me faint to hear; it seemed like the pleasure of fiends. Then the Count turned, after looking at my face attentively, and said in a soft whisper:—


“Yes, I too can love; you yourselves can tell it from the past. Is it not so? Well, now I promise you that when I am done with him you shall kiss him at your will. Now go! go! I must awaken him, for there is work to be done.”

Every time I see an article turn up about WhY aRe VaMpiREs GAY nOW??//? I’m just like honey go back and read Dracula okay I think you missed some stuff
