Fighting Rape CultureFighting Rape CultureFighting Rape Culture by ActsofArt
One commonly overlooked fact of sexual assault is that in most cases the offender is someone the victim knows. It can be an acquaintance, a friend, or even an intimate partner and is most commonly a turn from consensual relations to non-consensual sex (RAINN). Given this, consider the following statement from the academic journal, “Prosecutorial Decisions in Adult Sexual Assault Cases;” “Cases involving strangers were significantly more likely to proceed than cases involving acquaintances” (Lievore, Denise). This is only the beginning of a widespread issue that is pervasive throughout our entire society, and leads to loaded terms such as “legitimate rape,” to be uttered by none other than our very own politicians (Moore, Lori), and parroted by the ill informed and uneducated public. It is an issue that leads to victims being blamed for their own rape, and being held accountable for a man's loss of self-control. More than that, t

There was once a two authors on a website that wanted to let their opinion out.
But a famous author set to put them out.
She took the flame of these little author’s hearts making them burn from blue to red.
And here’s what she said,
“Your little fire shall be extinguished because I want you to get the Fuck Out!”
The tiny authors wept and cried.
Wondering was it because they picked a side.
Maybe if they had gone with the flow of everyone else
they wouldn't have suffered being a different self?
The small male author thought it was too much to handle and left.
But the dainty female author stayed behind. However
The light within her grew dimmer and dimmer.
And its glow became barely a shimmer.
Her originality became to be like everything else she owned: plastic.
She wasn't real anymore; just another author following the trends.
All hope was lost.
No one to come save her.
Sadness reigned within her,
making her shallow and pale as Frost.

and glass falls from the sky
watch as you indulge yourself
with the dream of a once upon a time
with the ink from your wounds
painting the world ash grey
maybe i should find solace in you,
my everlasting day.

reminds me of the medicine
my mother used to give me
when my fever was 102 and rising;
it's bitter and acrid
but it works on me anyway.
And you, you dazzling succubus,
you beautiful disappointment,
there's no time for love
when you're in repose,
pushing up daisies
in the barren fields of Asphodel,
but that's no reason to not try.
You, dear, are a mystery that will never be solved,
a lock with no key, a point of no return.
I am in no state to be addicted to the idea of your love,
but you find your way into my daydreams,
and make them come true.
The past is fossilized in your amber eyes,
the way to your heart is surrounded
by a storm that will never pass.
And I will never be able to brave
the tempest within you,
But in this moment,
pain has never felt more beautiful.
Soulmates: All AlongWhen you find your soul mate, a burning sensation occurs, normally on the wrist, hand or arm and then the name of your soul mate is imprinted into your skin, like a tattoo. It only happens when you’re near them. When you’re so close to them that you’ll be able to shout their name and they’d be able to find you; a tiny little name that changes everything.Soulmates: All Along by YellowTori
I came and sat down in a café that I was quite used to. I had just seen my mother after a year of being divorced from my husband. I hadn’t seen my mother since the divorce. I knew she’d go on about how we should have never gotten married because we weren’t ‘soul mates’ and because we were too young. And sure enough she did. I had been travelling after the divorce. After hearing the romantic stories of my friends bumping into mysterious, kind strangers and their names imprinted on their skin, I had to get away for a bit.
“I bumped into Mrs Davis the other day. Ma
DaddyDaddy,Daddy by Oilux
aren't you proud of me?
Haven't I done enough Daddy?
Am I not your little girl?
I'm sorry I'm not perfect,
but can you please come back?
I promise I'll do better.
I promise I can be perfect.
Don't you love me?
Look I drew you a picture,
will you come home now?
Where did you go?
Please come back.
Mommy says you don't care anymore
but I know it's not true.
It can't be true.
You don't even call anymore.
You said you loved me
and that I was your princess,
then why aren't you here?
Please come home.
I want my Daddy back.
Att Authors - How to pick a cover artistWhen it comes to choosing a suitable candidate for designing the cover for your book, there a few things to take into consideration which are usually over looked. As a cover artist myself, I have gone through many trial and errors in the process of working alongside an author in designing their cover. Little things that can frustrate both parties and lead to an uncomfortable working relationship. I thought of writing this to maybe help some people create better working environments for each other.Att Authors - How to pick a cover artist by mippieArt
Envisioning your cover
The first responsibility lies with the author. You need to have at least a vague picture in mind of what you would like your cover to look like. I have had many authors hire me and when it comes to the brief about what they want for the cover, they just go 'Oh I trust your artistic opinions. Let's see what you come up with'. Then following my own instinct, I go on creating MY idea of what the cover should look like, not having much to go o
How to love a girl who can't love herself.one.How to love a girl who can't love herself. by PrussianPersephone
When she cries herself to sleep
six out of seven nights a week you must
say nothing. You must simply take
her in your arms and kiss her gaunt,
pale cheeks and wait for her to
slumber at the sound of your heart.
On the days where she wishes she
were part of the stars, tell her
no. Tell her that there are too many
lights in the sky and that just one
would be forgotten the moment you looked
away from it. Tell her that she is perfect
the way she is: completely human.
Don't let her think about the scars
that no one but her can see. If she
says "I think I'm broken" smile like you
know a secret and say, "No, you're mending."
But do not be the one to fix her - no, she
