Tuvan Throat Singing and other 'World Music' that I really like

Enjoy this random mixtape I put together :D Obviously I have way more, but I didn't want to overdo it. Sorry that the posts have been really short and uninteresting these days and that they've been sort of quantity over quality lately. 

Some throat singing from Tuva, the southern part of Siberia:




A song with Old Norse lyrics: 




Lol this doesn't really fit the genre, but it's made by an Irish Canadian musician who is inspired by world music:



Andean music:



A song in the Maori language:




Mongolian metal? : 



 A pilgrimage song with Latin lyrics:



 What other music suggestions do you have? Comment below and tell us!

Review: Frankenstein

Frankenstein Frankenstein by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very spooky. Gave me many nightmares. I'm only going to call this book "the modern prometheus" from now on. I liked the framed narrative. I liked how there was a framed narrative inside a framed narrative at some parts when the monster was speaking. I liked all the stuff that was typical of romantic era writers, like descriptions of sublime nature and people from other cultures and the warnings about science going too far. I like how the monster was shown to be so intelligent and persuasive and have superhuman strength and speed. You really felt bad for him because it seems as though he could have done as much good as his creator had caused him to do evil. Even though the story was from Victor's perspective so it was constantly trying to make the monster look bad, you eventually came to the realization that Victor is really in the wrong. He shouldn't have just let his creature loose without becoming like a father to it or something. He didn't even give the monster a name. He really has no one to blame but himself for the death of his entire family.

Goodreads Review: Sophie's World

Sophie's World Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was beautiful, not only because of all the lessons on philosophy that were embedded into it but because of the awesome mystery of the characters that made you keep turning the pages. The writing style is very different from anything I've ever read before, with all that "romantic irony" plus the fact that it was a story inside a story inside a story sometimes. The ending was really well done as well. I wasn't expecting it to end that way. I love how they became immortal characters in the end.  There were also parts that were really funny, for example whenever Alberto Knox would be explaining a philosophy concept, the interjection of Sophie would always be something really comedic.

So even though this book is awesome, I didn't know whether to give it 5 stars or 4, but I decided on 5. The slight imperfections were that it didn't talk much about philosophy outside of Europe. It did mention Eastern philosophy a bit, but not enough. I won't hold this against the book much though because it was already quite long and I think if the author tried to talk about every type of philosophy it would reach a ridiculous length and cause the plot to move along way too slowly. The cover should say "a novel about the history of WESTERn philosophy" then. The author did spend a long time on certain parts, like Romanticism, and gave other areas a rushed treatment, like the Enlightenment thinkers I guess. The part about Hegel's theory of history and the "world spirit" really stood out to me. I guess it was all necessary for the plot. I like how the author included stuff about feminism, but it was sad that they didn't include much about other cultures. The Native Americans were called "primitive people" :( , and hardly any non-Europeans were mentioned. Once again though, this omission was probably necessary to move the plot along, and the setting of the Nordic countries and the general descriptions of the culture were awesome enough. One more flaw was that at times in got super unrealistic. I don't know how the mother could have been so chill with Sophie always going out to visit a random philosopher.  I don't know how she just allowed her only daughter to do a disappearing act at the garden party. 

I would recommend this book to anyone for its incredibly unique writing style and as an awesome intro to philosophy.

So Frypania, it seems that my Goodreads account has been linked to my blog and is automatically posting my book reviews for me. Wonderful!

Shameless Self-Promotoion of my Worthless Creations

I haven't updated this blog in like four months because I am degenerate af. I also am too lazy to write anything decent right now, so I'm just going to use this post to highlight some drawings I've made recently and some poetry I've written. Do you think it would be cool if I made videos of myself reciting the poetry like some cool spoken word artists I know do? Let me know if you would like that.  The purpose of this post will mostly be to show my followers that I'm not dead. The pressure of school and the weight of existence have just prevented me from posting anything here. I'll never abandon this blog though. I hope this art will help to justify my absence. 

General Updates to the Blog 

I've made some layout changes, although this blog still looks like a website from the 90s. It used to be a bright lime green and orange colour, but I changed it to a dark navy blue, grey-green, and grey. The theme used to incorporate frying pans, but now it incorporates rainforests and mysterious Mayan ruins. I think that matches my personality more. Blogger has released new templates that look super modern, but I'm scared to implement the minimalist designs for now. Eventually I'll have to change the layout to one of the new templates to keep up with the modern bloggers. Maybe I'll even be able to look as good as a Tumblr blog.

After 




Possible change

There are also tabs at the top of the page which link to my DeviantArt and written works, but I assume people will be too lazy to check those out, so I guess I'll just dump all my recent good stuff here. 

Australian Aborigines 

Their culture has fascinated me and I will continue to read about them. Here is a poem I wrote inspired by them, called "the Nomad's Walkabout": 
The nomad wanders through the desert,

Many things can hurt him.

His tribe is nowhere to be seen and all he has is a boomerang to hunt with,

He must wander from waterhole to waterhole,

He sings as he does so,

As if it would make the waterhole appear faster,

As though he was born singing.

Perhaps the first language of humans was in song as we learned to imitate the calls of birds,

As the nomad is now doing with the voice of a kookaburra.

He comes across the nest of an echidna but he can not eat it though his stomach rumbles,

The echidna is the totemic symbol of his tribe, after all,

He kills a wallaby instead,

The nomad wanders through the desert,

Many things can hurt him.

He must survive in the desert for many weeks alone,

Only then will he be allowed to return to his tribe,

Only then will he be permitted to start a family,

He needs to prove his adulthood,

Such is the way of the ancient walkabout.

The nomad wanders through the desert,

Many things can hurt him.

He takes out his didgeridoo and begins to blow a long, echoing note as lonely as the world around him,

He believes all problems can be solved by walking,

The nomad's way of life was already old when the pyramids were being built in Egypt,

But he keeps an ancient world alive,

The nomad is overwhelmed by the desire to walk.

He's never had such freedom before.

He wants to see the whole world and walk until the point where the orange sky meets the golden dunes.

The nomad wanders through the desert,

Many things can hurt him.

Wandering is in the blood of every human.

It is one of our most suppressed instincts.

Even a mother goose abandons her fledglings if 
they can't migrate with her,

The desire to fly becomes more important than her love for her offspring.

The nomad is me.

I can not sit still as long as there are places to see and worlds within this world,

As long as there are beautiful cultures.

You do not really understand the worth of humans until you travel.

Wanderlust is the most dangerous type of lust.

The nomad wanders through the desert,

Many things can hurt him.
I've been occupied these days by wondering about different cultures and wanting to know how they think. Here is a charcoal drawing I made of a didgeridoo player: 

The Mexica and other Nican Tlaca

Indigenous people of the Americas are my favourite thing. Here are some drawings I have made: 










Here are some cross stitches: 



National Romanticism 

After reading about the history of European thought, the cultural epoch that stood out to me the most was National Romanticism. Here is a poem that I wrote inspired by all that called "the World Spirit": 

The lyre has been left outside by the musician who plays in the forest, 
now it plays a ghostly chain of notes as the wind blows across its strings, 

Waves gently reach the shore, 
as a scientist is reduced to a child gathering shells on a beach, 
just mere shells washed up from the vast, infinite sea of knowledge,

The mountains stand proudly, 
and many artists have wandered that way, 
failing to capture the immutable forms of the eternally beautiful snow capped peaks, 

An enchanting flower unfurls its petals, 
as a poem unfurls its lines, 

and the whole universe is contained within everything, 
inside every tree are mysterious woods on which hundreds of stories of lost children and talking animals can be written,

all of us are capable of of wondering about the starry heavens above us, 
being outraged by injustice because of the moral law within us, 

History is just the journey of the collective human spirit, 
evil ideas were conceived but they did not know the power we have, the strength we have to survive, 
and as the hatred grew stronger so did our resistance,
we learned to stand up for Truth, 
that Good and Evil aren't subjective, 
they are innate knowledge, 
which is why those who stand silent in the face of Evil are part of the Evil themselves! 

Within every culture the World Spirit reflects itself, 
in the hearts of the nomadic and the settled, 
all cultural groups of the human race know what is wrong,
and they punish wrongdoers, 
they must punish the evil members of their own culture most severely, 
to keep pure their nation and their descendants, 
for no nation can be great until it acknowledges its flaws and rights its past wrongs, 
takes responsibility, 

The World Spirit does not freeze to death in the Arctic, nor dehydrate in the Sahara desert, 
it lives everywhere humans live, 
manifesting itself in tribes and nation-states, 

It beckons us to stick to our internal moral law, 
even if you stand alone, you must stand!
Forgive but do not forget! Do not be weak! 

and if you feel powerless, 
voiceless, 
hopeless, 
and melancholic, 
if they silence you or if you see others oppressed and feel guilty for being free yet being useless, 
if you feel yourself being driven to madness by pondering the world's condition, 
then let wanderlust be your source of healing, 
and travel far from the eyes of humans, 
and listen to birdsong, 
and dress as nomads do, 
and listen to waterfalls, 
and see that even in that atmosphere of divine sublimity, 
predators still hunt prey and natural selection occurs, 

Lean over the clear pool of water not yet polluted by your kind, 
and see through to the bottom, 
to the fish, 

Now your hands have made a ripple, 
and to the edges of the water it will spread, 
and to the ends of the earth your good deeds will spread, 
your name shall not be forgotten, 
and the evil will forever tremble at the sound of your name as it rings throughout the ages.

I really like that grey green colour now, after having been on DeviantArt for so long. 

Other notable creations 

This attempt at a sonnet:

Behind your world the silver shadows flow,
Under your great resplendent wings
the shadows would be all that most would know,
had they not met the sage above all kings

Your words knew no eloquence but the truth,
Saved hordes from drowning in a sea of lies,
The confusion only your help could soothe,
made me become enchanted with your eyes,

Waiting for my knight in shining armor,
was replaced by a more hopeless desire, 
to win the people's fine dragon slayer,
The sin of lust had scorched my soul like fire,

I wanted this lord of humanity,
never to see me as ordinary.

I like drawing cute couples sometimes:




That's all for today, folks.

Random post about axolotls + the possibility of starting a youtube channel soon?


This is really random and deviates away from the history theme of this blog, but then again, everything that I've posted recently does. In fact, Aspen's guestposts were more relevant than mine (the first crusade version was my favourite. Deus Vult! Ave Maria! No Nobis Domine!)  Sorry to everyone who followed because they were expecting legit serious posts about history and Mexica things! 

Cute creatures that I want as pets! 

Alright, so I'm going to start off with something that DOES vaguely have to do with Mexica things. Here is a gif of an axolotl. 



AWWWWWWWWW LOOOK HOW CUTe IT iS *SCCREEEEEEEEEEEAMS* 


The axolotl is also known by name "Mexican walking fish" and is SupER CutE. It is an amphibian that is closely related to the salamander. Sadly, this creature is in danger of going extinct. There are more axolotls today in captivity than in the wild. A survey done in 2008 had found 100 axolotls per square kilometer in the Lake Xochimilco habitat. BUT NOW THEY'RE ALL DEAD.  


Want to know something c00L about Lake Xochimilco? The place is a UNESCO world heritage site because it was once a very important agricultural center of the Mexica/Aztecs! 
>the feels when you've always wanted to go to Mexico 

RRRRRRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIPpppppppppPPPPPPPPpppp 

Aspen has managed to make me obsessed with sneks too, so I also really want a pet snake. Snakes are sooooo cooool because they were such important creatures in so many mythologies! One of my Danish internet friends who I met on DeviantArt 5 years ago drew a really really epic drawing once that had both Quetzalcoatl and Jormungandr in it! At that time, I wasn't really obsessed with Norse mythology, or I would have appreciated it a lot more... but I did think the Quetz was epic! 

Wait I managed to find a blurry af version of the drawing: 
It was one of her most popular works. I hope she doesn't mind that I'm sharing it. She deleted her DA account though so I can't even give her proper credit :( . 

It's sooooOOO beauTiFuL omg 

I also think that sneks are really affection8 pets and majestic af. 

Currently, I have 2 cats. But one of my German internet friends had lots of cats and snakes and kept them all together and they got along fine so maybe I'll be okay. I'll probably get a really small breed and nothing too exotic, perhaps a garter snake. 

All Aspen has are a bunch of sea monkeys and she's obsessed with foxes but she probably can't keep them. They make terrible pets and it's not good to keep wild animals in captivity anyway. I feel her though because I used to really want a pet bat but bats get really terrified in captivity and rarely survive more than a year, so I guess I'll stick to cats and tiny sneks! Perhaps I will get some sea monkeys like Aspen! 

This is a list of animals that should not be kept as pets. Some types of sneks, as well as fockses and bats have made the list! Beware! 

http://exoticpets.about.com/od/choosinganexoticpet/tp/TopTenAnimalsThatShouldNotBeKeptAsPets.htm  


By the way, should I start a YOUTUBE CHANNEL? 

I do currently have a youtube channel. But it's a really stupid one I use to upload things for school projects or Agar.io gaming sessions... or 7 second pieces of trash like this that don't deserve to exist: 



I made that to annoy Dral while we were doing a project on Slavic mythology! 

But I want to make a NEW youtube channel that will actually have legit educational videos to go up there with the greats like Crash Course or Extra Credits. 



I don't have an animation studio or the video editing skillz though. I mean, I couldn't even run a successful webcomic :( but maybe I could get squad people like Dral or Bren or Aspen or Vickyish to help me out. 

My webcomic on Serbian nationalism was supposed to change the world! Instead it did absolutely NOTHING but annoy Aspen a lot! 



Oh welp. 

My new years resolution was to be less annoying to my internet friends and to focus more on my writing, but hey, if I have time, I'm definitely going to start a youtube channel. It doesn't have to be fancy. I could start small. 

Also, I think it's time for this blog to get a new layout and colour scheme or something like that, so I'll be trying things out. In the mean time, have fun! 

That's all folks!

Read my stupid fanfiction and help me come up with a title for it please



Now, during the month of November, you may recall that I was very busy. This was because I was writing a novel for NaNoWriMo, which I won! Again! However, there are just a few problems:


  1. The story SUCKS 
  2. None of my friends want to read the whole thing except for this one guy in my history class who actually read it somehow without cringing to death. He said it was terrible but that it was still better than anything he could write. Wow... and he's a professional fanfiction writer who actually follows all the givens of the world on which he is writing the fanfiction for. 
  3. No one can agree on the genre (Aspen hates it when I call it a fanfiction, but then what else can it be?) some people think it is a speculative fiction or even an alternate history. I think it would be an adventure or dystopian. No one is sure! 
  4. The cast of characters is too large and no one can agree on who the main character is (this is how you can tell it sUCkS) 
  5. I CAN'T COME UP WITH A TITLE FOR IT 
Now, will you children be so kind as to take a few hours out of your life and give me some constructive feedback? You can use the link in the banner above, or you can click here to read it. Feel free to leave comments on the manuscript! 


Read on for spoilers on the deus ex machina ending...

Now, I don't really have a title for this, which is a problem. If you read it, I don't care if you stop after the first 3 pages, you HAVE to help me come up with a title. It just really bothers me that it's this 125 page document just sitting there called "untitled", k? In fact, I'll give you a summary of the entire story in about 5 sentences and then perhaps you can come up with a title with that alone:

➤The 5-sentence summary: 

Once upon a time there was a super evil person who was suspiciously similar to Donald Trump who ruled over a country that was suspiciously similar to the U.S but also kinda similar to Nazi Germany in some ways idk probably because there were gas chambers and shit. Just like Trump, the super evil person didn't really like Mexicans, so he was mean to them in a way that was suspiciously similar to the internment of Japanese people during WWII but also kinda similar to the Holocaust but it didn't work because everyone rebelled and then the super evil person died. The end involved nuclear weapons too. Lol rip i guess. Ye. Here is the fifth sentence.

 Possible titles I came up with: 
  • oh wait I didn't come up with anything because I suck 
The ending is extremely deus ex machina.

That's all, folks!

The 5 types of people on social media during Yule

Happy Yule, everyone! I feel peer pressured into making a Yule themed post now.

It is December 25th, which means that social media and blogs will be flooded with Yule-related posts, although almost no one will refer to the holiday as "Yule". I think these days people call it Christmas or something. Keep the Christ out of Yule! Well, that brings me to the first type of person who will be posting on social media during Yule, the PAGANS!

1: The Pagans
"Blessed be!" says your pagan internet friend, looking up from their drinking horn full of ale. Your pagan Wiccan friend is normally really chill and has helped you on several occasions before, such as casting love spells to help you get your crush or giving you advice on what to dress up as for Samhain (Halloween), another holiday that pagans are obsessed with. This is why you keep them around on your restricted friends list on Facebook. But around Yule time they start acting more anti-Christian than usual, claiming that the worshipers of a dead Jew on a cross have stolen their sacred traditions! Normally the pagans prefer to keep to themselves, even when their Christian enemies accuse them of being devil worshipers. Around Yule time though, they can't take the abuse anymore. They spam everyone's social media feeds with memes like this:  




Yes I know some of you will be interested in reading that Bible passage. So here it is. Interpret it however you want:

"1 Hear the word which the LORD speaks to you, O house of Israel. 2 Thus says the LORD: Do not learn the way of the Gentiles; do not be dismayed at the signs of heaven, for the Gentiles are dismayed at them. 3 For the customs of the peoples are futile; for one cuts a tree from the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the ax. 4 They decorate it with silver and gold; they fasten it with nails and hammers so that it will not topple. 5 They are upright, like a palm tree, and they cannot speak; they must be carried, because they cannot go by themselves. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil, nor can they do any good.”


2: The Normies

These are the uncool IRL people on your friends list whom you only added because they go to your school. They post memes that you've already seen parodied a million times, tasteless selfies, and occasionally short status updates that aren't even witty, controversial or funny.  They only get passionate about ideas that are generally agreed upon anyway, such as that Donald Trump is bad and homosexuals should not be discriminated against. Normies will wish you a merry christmas, along with some Yule tree or Sinterklaas emojis. When you try to ignite a discussion on the origins of the holiday they will leave your messages at "seen". Some of the more politically correct normies will say "happy holidays", but it's never anything as interesting as the cool Yule greetings your pagan internet friends say in random Scandinavian languages. Soon you will be familiarized with every Christmas filter on Snapchat thanks to the normies. 



3: The anti-consumerism/social justice warrior/hardcore atheist population 
Then there are your hardcore political activist sort of friends. These are usually the ones that will write interesting blog entries such as this one: 


You can read the rest of the post here on Olin Tezcatlipoca's blog: http://mexicamovement.blogspot.ca/2016/12/junk-and-trash-this-white-christmas-and.html 

These people will usually discourage any Yuletide merriment for one of more of the following reasons: 

i) It is a European holiday. So if you're not European, why would you celebr8 it?
ii) It promotes consumerism! Beware! Don't fuel the white supremacist capitalist greed!
iii) It's about JESUS (at least to the Christians) so don't celebrate it if you're an atheist. Don't make Christianity be seen as the norm! 

Now it is very important that you separate the REAL social justice warriors apart from the degenerate ones, the ones that only rant on the internet and don't anything, or the ones that are just crazy conspiracy theorists in disguise. The REAL ones are really cool. They are the type you stalk all the time and that you like all the posts of but are too shy to comment on. They are the type whos names you live to see in your notifications. They are the type you will message ever so often with a "hi, how are you?" and then they will actually reply even though they're really busy (they're really nice too) and then you won't know what to say and you'll feel stupid. 

4: The Legit Christians 
I'm glad that there are less of these each year. Basically, some of these aren't so bad. They keep to themselves and write long, passionate statuses about how they want everyone to have a great time with their friends and family on Christmas. They write about how thankful they feel about all the gifts and how gr8 their Yule tree looks, which they invited lots of friends over to decorate. The normies will like their posts and think of them as such nice people. Now, the ones that kinda suck are the hardcore Christians. They are the ones who can't differentiate your pagan friends from your hardcore atheist ones and categorize them both as "Satanists." If you say "Happy Holidays" to them they will say you are waging a "war on Christmas". They start acting like the Neonazis I am about to discuss next. 

5: The Neonazis/alt-right 
These people are interesting around this time of the year because they are so divided. Half of them sympathize with the pagans. "WE WUZ VIKANGZ N SHEEIT! MAKE EUROPA PAGAN AGAIN!" they yell. They will also say that because Christmas is celebrated by Christians, that it is a jEWiSH holiday. Oh no! Not the Jooz! -_- . Some neonazis hate all Abrahamic religions so much that they think of them all as the same. The other faction of the alt-right is predominantly Kkkhristian, and will join the other Christians in saying that there is indeed a such thing as a "war on Christmas", and will use that opportunity to complain about how there are too many refugees in Sweden or something. 


Well that's all I can come up with... the 5 types of people on social media during Yule! Let me know what kind of people I have missed in the comments below. By the way, this Yule you should watch the anim8ed movie "Anastasia" with your family. It's really good. The songs are really good too. Also read a few blog posts that might be interesting:

This article is from White Wolf Pack, a really popular blog on Native American things!

A post from a blog written by a cool monarchist who will explain what this holiday has to do with monarchism!

The Black Hand Fox Webcomic #3 (Collaboration)

Freya got me to digitalize another one of her web-comics based on "Springtime for Germany"

(I wholeheartedly disagree with Nazi veiws/beliefs and have no intention of promoting Nazi propaganda with this lighthearted comic. Idea goes to Freya.)

The Black Hand Fox Webcomic attempt #2

Forgive me, please. I know it's really dumb. For those of you who don't get it, the strategy that the Allies, in particular, the Canadians, used to seize Ortona in Sicily was called "mouseholding". It's supposed to be funny because in the webcomic, a mouse says it. Not laughing? It's okay. I know I suck. It's not even sticking to the original theme of the webcomic, which was supposed to be WW1 not WW2.  

The drawing program is excellent, no installations were necessary. You should really check it out: https://sketch.io/sketchpad/ 

It is almost as good as DeviantArt Muro! Okay but DA muro will always be the best just because it is made by DeviantArt. 

So what else is new? Well, I got into Spyglass, which is like a magazine/newspaper/news website thing at my school. I'm probably going to be writing an article about the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. I also really want to make a magazine quiz called "what ancient civilization are you?" which will be like one of those really lame Buzzfeed quizzes like "which flavor of potato chip are you?" but better because it will be about ancient civilizations not potato chips. 

That reminds me of this poll that one of my DeviantArt friends made: 


What do you think of when someone says potatoes? chips, food, Incas, Ireland, "whats wrong with this question" or "no"? 

Here is the DA page of the person: http://bigsleeves-arts.deviantart.com/ 

Other Random Things

Is this font legible, BTW? I hope it is. I know my blog uses colors and fonts that can be eye-raping at times. 

Okay so, do you guys know what MONTH it is? That's right everyone, it's: 




Every writer's favourite month is N A N O V E M B E R. Let me explain, every November, there is a a writing contest called "NaNoWriMo". They have a cool crest with a stereotypical historically inaccurate triggering Viking helmet! See?! :

Visit nanowrimo.org to learn more

The rules are that you have to write a minimum of 50,000 words within the month of November. You can upload a cover and write a synopsis and excerpt too. If you get stuck along the way, there is a forum where you can talk to other writers for ideas. If you win you get bragging rights and discounts on a bunch of self publishing and editing softwares.

The last time I entered was in 2013, when I won. Now that I am participating again after 3 years, I feel so nostalgic talking to my old internet friends from 3 years ago including this one girl in the Netherlands who always writes crazily over the minimum 50,000 every year. I think she does like 100,000 words at least or something. The year I won, I wrote 61,000. For reference, 50,000 is around the length of "the Catcher in the Rye". My first published novel, "Misplaced", was 48,000 words. 

So you are probably wondering what my story is about, right? Well, it is currently at 42,000 words and is basically in a futuristic setting where indigenous people are trying to overthrow the government! Beware! And they are basically saving the whole world from a sp00ky tyrant who has come into power. I know that is a very vague plot description. If you have a NaNoWriMo account, you can find me. My username is aztecatl13, and you can read my actual plot synopsis and excerpt. I'm too embarrassed to post it here. 

Also, if you're reading this, chances are you're one of my internet friends or acquaintances and I've used you as a character in my ginormous cast of characters. I have most likely changed your name out of respect for your privacy. Some of my IRL friends such as Vickyish have also been included. Even if you think I hate you, I've probably still used you as a character, probably as a villain or something. For example, a sp00ky white supremacist once added me to a really sketchy Facebook group where a bunch of racists who fancy themselves "theologians" discuss Catholicism. Many of them seem to be homosexuals in denial as well, because they will condemn gay behavior and call Justin Bieber sexy (even though most of them are men) in the same breath. I have used many of their personalities to inspire the villains in my story. That is the only reason why I let white supremacists stick around for some time before I block them. 

Anyway, so when the novel is done I will probably gather up the courage to post the synopsis and everything here and then ask who wants to help proofread the first draft. I'll probably make a public Google Doc and ask my Frypanian fanbase to leave comments on it as they read the unruly manuscript. Perhaps I will illustrate it like I did with my first novel. My art has definitely improved since then, gawd. 

Like seriously. This is something I made in 2012. It is a random Mexican thing: 



Look how much I improved in just 2 years. This was one of my very first acrylic paintings during my nascent Norse mythology obsession phase. There's a Valkyrie:
