A Stranger in Paradise


Online, I typically go by the name Holly Hobgoblin. This blog usually contains reblogs dedicated to either social politics, Broadway musicals, paganism, or medieval stuff, simply because those are the areas that usually interest me the most.

Joseph Stalin raises his head, a sly twinkle in his eye as he meets the bald man’s suggestive gaze. “Walter…” He purrs, dragging his tongue along the underside of his mustache in anticipation. “I see you’ve finally arrived.”

hello police

"Oh, Walter," The man chuckled, mustache quivering in delight. "I am the police.”

I’m not even gonna ask

Happy owl

Some images just hit the right spot. This cute owl in his best red coat is part of a decorated page in a Pontifical, a book that was read during a special Mass in the church, often by the bishop himself. Having ploughed through a full page of big chunky letters, he was treated to a change of pace: a bit of entertainment in the lower margin. Hidden inside the colourful display sits the owl, who is looking, puzzled, at a bell. While the significance of the scene is lost on me, it made my day. Having been locked out of my Tumblr account for three days (see my previous post), it is good to be able to show you entertaining medieval things like this again. Thank you Tumblr Support Team!

Do you ship any Disney princesses together? Do you interpret any Disney princesses as LGBTQIA+? Do you identify as an LGBTQ+ woman? If so and if you’re interested, maybe you can help me!

glitterstyles:

I’m doing a project on LGBTQIA+ readings of Disney princesses in the Disney fandom. I’d like to speak with a few people who participate in this. If you’d be willing to help me, I’d love to hear from you!

A few questions would be:

  1. What is your personal identity in the LGBTQIA+ acronym?
  2. Do you participate in this queer Disney sub-fandom?
  3. How do you do so? What ships/headcanons do you have regarding characters? Why do you ship these characters or have these headcanons? Do you write fic, draw fanart, make manips, etc.?
  4. Do you think representations of LGBTQIA+ characters in children’s media is important? Why?
  5. Does your interpretation of existing Disney characters as LGBTQIA+ help you in any way in dealing with your identity? How?
  6. Any other comments?

You can send me an ask or submit it to me. Feel free to send it in anonymously, but please give me a nickname that I can refer to you as. Responses can be any length so if you don’t want to write me a novel, a few words is perfect, whereas if you want to write a novel, I would be grateful for that as well!

This is very last minute and I’m really sorry for this. If possible, 3pm eastern time tomorrow would be the best time for me to have responses but please don’t sweat it if it’s later!

Thank you so much for your help!

Brother Anselm to Dom Gilbert, brother, friend, beloved lover…sweet to me, sweetest friend, are the gifts of your sweetness, but they cannot begin to console my desolate heart for its want of your love. Even if you sent every scent of perfume, every glitter of metal, every precious gem, every texture of cloth, still it could not make up to my soul for this separation unless it returned the separated other half.

The anguish of my heart just thinking about this bears witness, as do the tears dimming my eyes and wetting my face and the fingers writing this.

You recognized, as I do now, my love for you, but I did not. Our separation from each other has shown me how much I loved you; a man does not in fact have knowledge of good and evil unless he has experienced both. Not having experienced your absence, I did not realize how sweet it was to be with you and how bitter to be without you.

— Epistle 1.75 from the Patrologia Latina, attributed to Saint Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), a Benedictine monk, philosopher, and prelate of the church. (via homosexualityandcivilization)
