The Art of Darkness

A Link Dump Grows in Brooklyn

Squirming Mommy Munchers – One of Bogleech’s wonderful Weird Biology series, this one about caecilians.

BareBumShop – Etsy shop specializing in soap and bath bombs, many of them with spooky themes.

ao3 tags – A delightful Twitter account that logs interesting tags from Archive of Our Own works. I especially like, “non-consensual knife play, also known as stabbing,” “Slightly canon compliant if canon had a demon tossed into it,” and “let perry the platypus say fuck.”

Christmas with Krampus – Kickstarter for Krampus-themed wrapping paper, ornaments, and greeting cards.

The Fisher of Bones – Sarah Gailey’s novelette is available for free online.

Death of the Firstborn Egyptians – A cute animation and catchy tune about one of the Biblical plagues. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie, who finds the best stuff)

The Best Places Around the World to See Bats (by the Millions) – I am all in for bat tourism.

20 Years Later, and the Women of Angel Still Deserve More – “The deaths of Darla, Fred, and Cordelia Chase were a waste.” Damn straight, they were.

31 Days ‘Til Halloween – After a long absence, Dave Lowe is blogging again and is counting down the days to Halloween with spooky sketches.

Calamityware Now What? Series – Calamityware has a kickstarter for a new set of designs. (Hat tip to Bruno)

    That Angel article was shocking – Charisma Carpenter deserved so much better.

    I’m going to have to completely disagree with the take on Cordelia. I don’t feel like the character ever became redeeming and likeable; in fact, she was more entertaining when she was shallow and mean on Buffy. Angel loving her made no sense at all. She’s just… Ugh.

    As for Fred, there was more planned for her before the series was cancelled.

    Death of the Firstborn is from Nina Paley’s animated movie Seder-Masochism, which you can watch online:
