False rape accusations are an anomaly.

True rape accusations are a norm.

You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.

Re-blog now, read later.

"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”

I think that Dori has perfected the act of Emotional Textile Handicrafts.

Consider:

  • Angry knitting. 
  • Disappointed crocheting.
  • Indignant sewing.
  • Disapproving mending. 
  • Unamused embroidery.
  • Irritated quilting
  • Worried macrame
  • Frustrated lace-making
  • Aggravated appliqué
  • Contemptuous crewelwork

carbonylcookie: Phryne/Jack

queenklu:

oh maaaaaan

which one hogs the blanket

Phryne. Total and unabashed blanket hog. But this usually works out because Jack is a sleep cuddler and just burrows in with her. 

which one cuts the other’s hair

The first time Phryne cuts Jack’s hair Jack is so convinced it’s going to end horribly that he buys himself two new hats to cover it up—but it turns out Phryne did a lot of hair-cutting in the war, and she’s actually pretty good at it. Neither one expected it to be so intensely intimate, though, and they had to pause half-way through to bang right there in the bathroom. A GOOD TIME WAS HAD BY ALL. 

which one makes coffee for the other every morning

Mr. Butler makes the coffee, partly because it’s his job and partly because both Phryne and Jack are TERRIBLE at it. Hers always comes out watery and his always tastes like tar. 

which one picks up the pizza

We’ll substitute “pizza” with “ordered food” bc I doubt pizza was super big in Australia in the 20s. And it’s Jack, mostly, when Mr. Butler is out of town and he knows Phryne would just eat jam out of the jar if left to her own devices. 

which one likes their music on full volume

PHRYNE. Sooooo phryne. Sometimes Jack can hear it all the way down the street, and he tries to mind because it’s probably bothering the neighbors, but then he walks in the house and Phryne’s dancing with the music filling her from the tips of her fingers down to her toes, and he can’t be mad. 

which one complains about the crumbs on the bed

Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

which one is ticklish

Neither, surprisingly. They both grew up with the feeling that they were slightly broken because of it—or maybe other people were, that you could poke them and they’d dissolve into giggles. (Hugh and Dot are both THE MOST ticklish though)

which one sings and which one plays the music

IT’S CANON, WE KNOW THIS ONE, OH GOD, I CAN’T BELIEVE. AHEM.

Phryne sings. Jack plays. I AM A MESS. 

which one proposes

Phryne does. Jack never ever ever in a million years thought Phryne would ever want to marry anyone, so he was Very Much Not Prepared. There was a big fight, involving Jack trying to make sure Phryne really wanted to marry himand Phryne getting mad that Jack assumes she doesn’t know her own mind, and this horrible mess ends with Jack leaving for the weekend. Jack feels sick an awful the whole time, and finally tracks her down on Monday morning, reading the paper, bare feet on the settee. “You don’t have to marry me,” Jack blurts out before anything else. “I’m already yours.” 

And then they don’t get married, because the whole concept really does freak Phryne out in a Big Way, but she’d been terrified that Jack wanted to get married and losing him was somehow more frightening than marrying him. They live in perfectly content basically-but-not-actually wedded bliss forever and ever the end

which one hogs the blanket

Hardison. But only because Parker HATES blankets unless they’re in forts, and Eliot tends to kick the blankets off because they sometimes trigger nightmares if they tangle around his legs. 

which one cuts the other’s hair

Eliot will cut Hardison’s hair—he says it’s the stillest Hardison has ever been, no technology involved, just Eliot gently moving Hardison’s head to the gentle buzz of the razor. Parker cuts her own hair. Eliot has a secret professional hair stylist he sees regularly and it’s very very secret goddamn it Hardison 

which one makes coffee for the other every morning

Eliot, because Parker will drink terrible fake coffee if you let her and Hardison gets his caffeine from soda. 

which one picks up the pizza

Parker, because as much as Eliot has ~feelings~ about food, Parker has ~feelings~ about pizza. She doesn’t use words like mouthfeel and she doesn’t give a shit about what’s in the sauce, but she has tracked down The Best Pizza Guy in every city they’ve worked in. 

which one likes their music on full volume

Hardison. There have been too many times where Eliot has walked in on Hardison dancing in his underwear to “Friday I’m In Love” (so far no one has asked why he hasn’t started knocking on the door when he hears that song, if it bugs him so much (it doesn’t bug him. but sometimes he feels like if he doesn’t set boundaries these two will ping out of here like the walls don’t exist)) 

which one complains about the crumbs on the bed

Eliot. ALWAYS. Hardison swears left right and center that it isn’t him. (It’s Parker. She eats ramen noodles raw.) 

which one is ticklish

Hardison: all over. Parker: only on the insides of her elbows. Eliot: on his sides, but only when he’s relaxed enough for his body to realize it’s tickling and not an attack. So Parker and Hardison are the only ones who know, and they use this knowledge veeeeery sparingly. 

which one sings and which one plays the music

Hardison can’t carry a tune in a bucket, though he tries, bless him. Everyone knows Eliot has a GOOOORGEOUS voice, but very few people know that he’s giving Parker lessons. She has a beautiful, clear voice when she concentrates. Sometimes when they’re falling asleep Eliot will sing a song and she harmonizes like it’s breathing. 

which one proposes

Embarrassingly, both Parker and Hardison propose to Eliot (and each other) on the same day. Eliot had nooooo idea this was coming, and insists they get a redo so he can propose to them too. Hardison immediately chokes up because that means Eliot’s going to say yes, and Parker panics because Hardison is crying, and it’s basically one big disaster. 

Later that night, Eliot bakes them a tiny cake and cuts it into thirds. Each piece of the cake has a ring in it. Hardison cries again but at least this time there is cake.
