DreamAlive

Hello there! This is my 'anything that strikes my fancy' blog. There will be pictures. There will be books, and quotes, and opinions. There will be things that I've written, and things that others have written. There will be cool stuff, and nerdy stuff, and stuff that's really useless. Over-analyzing abounds!
Enjoy! (My secondary blog, less fannish and more writerly, is here:
http://more-than-true.tumblr.com/
That's where I cross-post some "srs blogging" and post about the "dragons" and heroes I come across in my life. Feel free to share yours here or there!)

please PLEASE don’t tag triggers with any kind of key smash after them it doesn’t matter if its symbols or numbers of letters don’t do it

the xkit blacklist only blocks posts that are tagged with the word by itself

the argument that you don’t want an index of triggering things on your blog is irrelevant because who is going to go be triggered by something and then go through a tag of it on someone’s blog

ive seen this a lot and it used to be a huge problem for me, the xkit blacklist is not very efficient, i would really recommend tumblr savior instead if you arent already aware of it (its for all browsers), it blocks posts that have any word or tag you have blacklisted no matter if its tagged w/ key smashes or not

if you use xkit blacklister you can set it to block words even if they have something like a keysmash after it if you put an * after the word

example:

so then if a post is tagged with something like #slurs thgdh it will be blocked regardless!

I did it! Managed to listen to most of the next part of “Persuasion” for class, too.

It’s mamoul (transliteration varies), cookies typically made in the Arab world for either Eid or Easter, depending on your faith. I didn’t have molds or tools —Easter mamoul is *supposed* to be really pretty. The Rose of Sharon mold is my favorite. But I did try to make the crown-of-thorns pattern on the circle ones!

Anyway, the ka’ak mamoul (the circle/crown ones) are filled with a date and walnut mixture, and the round mamoul have a walnut filling. When they are stored, they’ll go in a bag with more powdered sugar.

…A wise word if you want to make them: ‘tis a project meant to bring families together in the kitchen (and it works like you wouldn’t believe! ). It’s a little more of an endeavor if you do it on your own like I did here.

who the fuck is eros

EROS is the new zdk 1.3 the Blackbird dev team released (IRIS and TOMO are 1.2 and 1.1). IRIS and TOMO are still “alive”—all the extra letters in EROS’ posts are them sneaking messages out.

….
….
IRIS’ and TOMO’s latest message (snuck in as extra letters in EROS’)

….

It’s “Stay away.”
