ridiculous fannishness. pretty things. recently turned into a night vale blog. somehow.

(do be aware of night vale spoilers, effective pretty much as soon as the shows air.)

sometimes I make night vale fanart vids.

sometimes I cosplay.

this is my photography.
this is my face.

I also run the the nine worlds geekfest tumblr, and this night vale meta blog.

about this tumblr: this is where I put all the silly, happy things. when there's something I think is interesting and social-justicey, or if it's awesome but not in my fandoms, I'll throw it at the nine worlds tumblr. I don't tag this one (except with occasional unholy shrieking), or the nine worlds tumblr - I do tag the night vale meta tumblr, because it's serious business.

Welcome to Night Vale at Union Chapel, Islington London; 20/10/2014
It was a truly magical experience getting to witness it live, and all my excitement for the Librarian was well warranted and all my expectations were exceeded! And I had high expectations.
I don’t want to say much as I don’t want to ruin it for all those yet to hear it, but I will say if you ever get the chance to hear this, or any wtnv live just go go go go go! There is nothing like it.
Brb, gonna go get some black and white nikes for when they come back next time.

taylorswift we need a recipe for these please! 🍪🍪🍪

MMMKAY— there are two ways you can go about this. The quick and easy way is to make sugar cookies from a sugar cookie mix and just cut open a packet of chai tea and pour it into the batter as you make it. Cause you’re busy and you want making cookies to be a chill part of your day.Pow. Done.
OR
If you want to make the cookies from scratch (that’s what I did for the 1989 Secret Sessions), you can use this recipe I found on a baking blog I like, joythebaker.com and I believe it was originally from a book called The Pastry Queen. If you want another great baking blog, I get a lot of great ideas from smittenkitchen.com too. This is a recipe for basic insanely good sugar cookies. I added the chai element to the recipe because I thought it would infuse cozy holiday vibez into the cookie and it really did. So I’ll star the part that I added in the recipe.

***after you add the egg and vanilla, cut one chai tea packet open and empty the crushed up tea leaves into the batter CAUSE CHAI COOKIES ARE ABOUT TO HAPPEN UP IN HERE***
I made an icing for the cookies, but they’re fine on their own. If you want to make icing for them, just mix 1 cup powdered sugar with 1/4 T-spoon of nutmeg, 1/4 T-spoon of cinnamon and 3 TAYblespoons <—-(I’m so annoying, it astounds me sometimes) of milk or eggnog if you can find it this time of year. The more milk/eggnog you add, the more your icing will become a glaze. But glazes are legit too so basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE.
I lightly sprinkled cinnamon over the icing once the cookies were baked and iced, but there are so many icing options you can pair with these cookies—I mean it’s out of control. If you’re really feeling like living on the edge, you can go ahead and add a few drops of food coloring to the icing to make it festive. No one is going to stop you.
Why?
Cause the bakers gonna bake bake bake bake bake.
Bye.

did taylor swift really just show up out of the blue on tumblr only to drop some betty crocker shit on us what the fuck

I’m reblogging this solely bc Taylor Fucking Swift just wrote a whole thing about cookies and ended it with a reference to her song.
I have so much respect for her right now.
