I just got reminded today that it's THAT TIME AGAIN

That's right, it's less than a month until Bonfire Night, which means it's time for me to grumble about it.

If you are new around here, you may be unaware of how I feel about Bonfire Night – more specifically, how I feel about Americans making a big deal out of Bonfire Night. My feelings on this matter are really quite strong, and can more or less be summed up thus:

Don't fucking do it if you do do it I will come across the Atlantic Ocean to your house and make you eat your own raw fingers

Bonfire Night/Guy Fawkes Night/wev was originally a government-enforced obligatory commemoration that appropriated some of the existing customs of Samhain for the purpose of anti-Catholic, pro-monarchy propaganda. It is about rejoicing in the failure of a group of marginalised people to overturn a status quo that treated them like second-class citizens, and about celebrating the fact that England still has a monarchy. Admittedly they were totally 17th century terrorists and I do not condone blowing people up, but the fact that the way they were going about their stuff was not that great does not make this celebration in any way admirable. Bonfire Night is basically a big monarchical Protestant gloat and was introduced to encourage the further demonising of Catholicism at a time when Catholics were having a really shitty time of it already.

Don't get me wrong, I love fireworks, but the USA totally already has its own awesome fireworks holiday and it is about NOT having a monarchy, you lucky fuckers. Isn't that good enough for you? ffs.

My intention is of course to dissuade any of the Americans reading this from making any totally awesome pretentious anglophilic plans to have a party commemorating the oppression of people in another country four hundred years ago because they totally love V for Vendetta lol!

I feel like complaining about Merlin, but I'm lazy. What are your thoughts on Merlin? I think it's really fucking stupid but I watch it whenever I have nothing better to do on a Saturday even though it makes me want to throw every single character in it out of a window.

21:36:41 Hannah: when we were trying to work out if marius actually thinks anything
21:36:53 Hannah: frederique and I found a line about how every day he goes to the market and
21:36:54 Hannah: stares
21:36:56 Hannah: at lettuce?
21:37:30 Hannah: like and we are clearly meant to think he ... is merely looking through the lettuce while occupied by Loftier Thoughts but since those are never defined
21:37:34 Hannah: I choose to believe that he just really likes lettuce
orm: the text: DO YOU LIKE ART? I DREW SOME RUSSIAN ORPHANS ... (ART: i drew some)
so that I can buy stuff like cowboy pants, theatre tickets, and new harp strings. (Although, for the latter, I will need intestinal fortitude as well as money – harp shop people are so snooty and intimidating :c)

in theory, they are at the south bank book market, which I used to occasionally stare at in the hopes of locating exciting and hard-to-find volumes of biggles. fruitlessly. aziraphale is apparently having better luck than me.

HEY GUYS I'm going to be opening commissions freals in the imminent future but right now I need a little bit of funds in my paypal and don't have the time to think too hard about prices so IF ANYONE'S INTERESTED –

I will draw any character you like as a dragon for £4.50 (that's about seven US dollars), in colour, one character per drawing, six slots so I don't wind up biting off more than I can chew. I'll get started this weekend.

ANY character, from anything, OCs, fanstuff, wev, but if it's not a character you know I'm familiar with then give me some kind of reference.

PAYPAL ONLY, even if you like live near me and can put the money into my hand with your hand, because I need monies in my paypal account.
My paypal address is squeakyorm@hotmail.com; please to be sendin' me money beforehand and in UK pounds (£), NOT an equivalent worked out using a currency converter.

I drew things today and yesterday but they were all either commissions or more icons for Crowley (I have a problem)

so here

have some animals.... yeah idk

I'm going to set up a commission prices thing in the near future, I think, but that requires, like, THINKING? So I'll do that later. If in the meantime you want to get a hold of me for something specific that you want me to draw, GO FOR IT ...

PEOPLE READING THIS ENTRY ON LJ: since everybody is all UNGH LJ YOU SUCK /GOES TO LOOK AT DREAMWIDTH – I am sure I do not need to tell you this but I HAVE A DREAMWIDTH. In case you couldn't be bothered to click through the crosspost link on the bottom of this post, it's [personal profile] orm; go add it if you're going to start using yours.

For those of you who have yet to have this shared with you by my esteemed colleague [personal profile] pob, I would like to draw your attention to Captain Manners.

Perhaps you have heard of Captain Manners. A Distinguished Gentleperson of the Captain's merit is bound to meet with some renown, after all. A citizen of the world, having been abandoned as a babe and raised by a plural noun of animals in the harsh and unforgiving landscape of a far off country, Captain Manners is a Genuine Military Officer with a doctorate in helping, and as such is more than qualified to answer queries on any and all subjects that you can think of, and at least eighteen that you cannot.

If you have any kind of query about anything whatsoever, Captain Manners will be happy to answer it and you are sure to be satisfied.

I keep trying to work out the owl tiger's anatomy
I like to think it has two pelvises instead of, like, shoulderblades and stuff, like an owl was just mashed onto the front of a tiger in a hideous way, but I always just draw it like a cat with bird feet and a beak because I'm lazy
