The Art of Darkness

Life is Just a Bowl of Link Dumps

May 24th, 2019 by Cobwebs

Glamourie – Book of knitting patterns for fanciful clothing. You can see photos of some of the patterns here.

Genderswapped Lord of the Rings – I love these speculative casting choices.

The Other Arachnids – A very cool roundup of non-spider arachnids.

Good Boy Stats – This Twitter thread of D&D monsters and whether or not they’re “good boys” is awesome, but @bryancamp’s comment “They’re all good boys, Mordenkainen.” is what really sent me over the edge.

Hen Wives, Spinsters, and Lolly Willowes – A look at the more domestic Wise Women.

Chicken Scratch – Custom drawings and calligraphy, including props for LARPing.

Wilhelmina Grubbly-Plank – A short but amusing Twitter thread.

Mermaid Horror Stories – I can definitely see mermaids gathered around whatever the undersea equivalent of a campfire is, scaring each other with these.

Ashes to Art – Artist Bea Haines paints with human ashes.

Cute Creature – Great response to the writing prompt, “A creature designed to be ‘cute’, created by a god that does not fully understand what ‘cute’ looks like to humans.”

    I’d be happy to argue over those casting choices all day (some spot on, some laughable), but what fucking dumbass didn’t think to cast Maggie Smith?

    I’m here for Geena Davis in a beard. AND Ewan McGregor yelling “I AM NO WOMAN!!


    A podcast I listen to regularly had a discussion of what the difference between a “hag” and a “crone” was (and how that difference depended on your proximity to the broader queer community). I’d like them to take on “henwives”, &c.


    Vaguely threatening gift card or supportive message? You decide.


    Random paintings are cool, but I’m still turning DH into a diamond to wear around my neck and introduce to future suitors.
