To all the Tumblr users who tend to use tags very liberally:


Let’s play a game.

Type the following words into your tags box, then post the first automatic tag that comes up.

What is the point of a gate that does not lead anywhere? asked Nameless, turning to avoid the glare of the setting sun.

The Scientist squinted ahead as the semicircular disk continued its downward trajectory past the horizon, and finally replied. To frame that which we otherwise might not notice.

Thank you so much to everyone who bought Nameless & the Scientist Book 1! I’m so stoked by your support. The book is currently being printed (!!) and I’ll start mailing them out on the 27th May! (when the shipment arrives)

Esther Scroll, Ancona, early 18th century

This scroll is a beautiful example of the particular style of decoration that flourished in the Italian towns of Ancona and Lugo in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Artists in these towns specialized in a laborious technique whereby the parchment was cut away to create an intricately patterned frame for the text that reminds us of the beautiful lace used in fashions of that period. This elaborate technique was employed to adorn megillot, ketubbot and a variety of Judaica objects. Only a few such Italian cut-out parchment scrolls remain today.

I could have used this information over the last 29 years of my god damn life

My mom taught me to pack like this and she gets mad when I come to visit and sees that I don’t use it.

I need to remember this for uniforms.

Oh my god, I am learning this ASAP. HOW DID I NOT KNOW OF THIS BEFORE?!

Pants though

who has Whatsapp or Viber? who wants me to message them randomly? askbox me your details and i’ll add you up.

Reading a scientific paper is a completely different process than reading an article about science in a blog or newspaper. Not only do you read the sections in a different order than they’re presented, but you also have to take notes, read it multiple times, and probably go look up other papers for some of the details. Reading a single paper may take you a very long time at first. Be patient with yourself. The process will go much faster as you gain experience.

Anonymous asked: if it helps search for it, "Andrew said that he started with Light and Breath, and then Time and Space, as the things you need for creation. Light and Breath being the more metaphysical concepts (especially influenced by Western canon/Christian thought, given that that's deeply fused to our culture), Time and Space being the more quantifiable ones."


Ahhh. That’s a much more detailed comment from her, and gives us some very important information, also confirming some details about how/when Andrew went about coming up with the aspect system that I’d suspected but wasn’t sure of.

Here is the complete comment she wrote on reddit:

I’m gonna hop in from here if that’s okay!! This is another good post.

Andrew said that he started with Light and Breath, and then Time and Space, as the things you need for creation. Light and Breath being the more metaphysical concepts (especially influenced by Western canon/Christian thought, given that that’s deeply fused to our culture), Time and Space being the more quantifiable ones.

He didn’t come up with all twelve aspects right away, either; just the first four, and then the others when he got to that part of the story.

Anyway all this is to basically say that god tier aspects really really invite speculation because there is just enough open space to be fascinating—but no test will really do it. You’re better off thinking it over yourself and choosing what feels right to you.

For a while I was going with Heir of Void as a title for myself but after more stuff I decided on Rogue of Void, it works for me. This was actually two years ago when Andrew put together an info thing for himself on GT aspects—so before Roxy I guess.

I guess the takeaway here is that it’s not really about minutiae; like Homestuck the story and Sburb the game, it’s more about character, both in what your title will be and how your role will take shape. No guarantee that two Rogues of Void will have the exact same abilities, they’ll just be very similarly shaped due to their titles.

Also inversion isn’t a thing I beg everyone to please stop saying inversion

And, similarly important, here’s an earlier response of hers that was quoted just before this:

[…] I’m always really curious to see how people go about coming up with their unified god tier title theories but it seems to me that people pull waaaay too much into it—the titles are meaningful, but definitely do not define every aspect of a player/character, and usually aren’t as all-reaching as they’re posited to be. (For instance: Jade was definitely not using space when she put the bunny together; if anything, she was using her faculty for scientific gadgetry. Not every action a character takes or every thought they have is a result or reflection of their class or aspect.)

I have a lot to say about all this, though I still stand with inversion theory! My extensive comments under the cut.
