    “You’ve visited that kid every day for weeks,” Clark said. “Why?”

    Batman stared at him. “How long have you known?”

    “Batman…”

    “You’re confronting me now because you’re worried about my intentions toward Dick. He changed your mind about something. Ergo, you’ve been sitting on this for a while. How long have you known I wasn’t real?”

    Summary

    Petunia Evans is a Muggle. She has no place in their world, the magical world, and it’s best that she come to terms with that now. She couldn’t do magic if she tried, any more than she could ever be as beautiful as Lily, as fun as Lily, as likeable as Lily.

    There’s another world where Petunia Evans lets this disappointment seep deep into her bones—a world where Petunia Evans grows old, and bitter, and angry at all the things she cannot have. In that world, Petunia Evans lets her jealousy steep, like tea that’s been left too long, and lets it turn into a thick, steaming beverage of resentment and hate and disgust. In that world, Petunia Evans is always second-best to her beautiful, her magical, her shining and smiling sister, in her own head if nowhere else, and this remains so even after Lily is gone.

    That’s a different world.

    Summary

    Interlude: The Story of Steve “Walking PR Nightmare” Rogers, and How For a Short While He Single-Handedly Destroyed the Emotional Health of Eva Laura Ortiz, His Now Ex-Publicist

     

    (Throwback Thursday to that time in 2015 when I decided to just really lean into my incredibly self-indulgent headcanons about Steve Rogers, his politics, and kind of his whole deal. Occasionally people ask why this isn't on AO3 so here it is! Seven-ish years later. I aim to please. Eventually.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    the best satire looks light-hearted and hits like a brick. Steve Rogers is not doing satire, but it might feel like it to Eva Ortiz, publicist.

    Summary

    In his recent article in Contemporary Theories of Cultivation, Lan (2019) sets out to study the correlation between instrument choice and outcomes in the liberation of spirits. While his main thesis appears sound, his decision to limit the study to the qin, dizi, xiao and pipa undermines his conclusions.

    This decision falls prey to the fallacy that tradition cannot be questioned. It ignores, too, the fact that many practising cultivators will encounter spirits that will have no exposure to such “expectations.” In a small study comparing the use of a dizi with a theremin—undoubtedly a non-traditional choice—the theremin produced optimal outcomes in liberating spirits where: time since death was less than 6 months; spirit was younger than 25 and older than 17 at time of death; or spirit motivation included aspects of revenge. The conclusions reached in Lan (2019), while providing a foundation for future study, are therefore as yet incomplete.
