So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?

I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.

I love it!

And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…

#more witch-centric lesbian fairytale rom-coms #….a sentence I never thought I’d type

I really think someone needs to write this book. I mean, totally awesome unique plot idea based on already present tropes, c’mon guys.

  • The only way to the place you’re going is through a dark passageway. It’s a sunny day, but you can’t see to the other side. Everyone else keeps walking past the passageway as if they don’t see it.
  • The Northern line isn’t running above Camden Town. The buses have stopped going that way too. People start referring to North London like it’s Manchester. “That’s just how things are up North,” they say. “My sister moved up there but I haven’t heard from her in months.”
  • It’s been raining for days. It is always raining. Your flat is damp, condensation collecting on the insides of the windows. The walls are weeping. Your feet are wet. You will never be dry or warm again.
  • A pop up shop opens on Portobello Road. It sells herbs and homeopathic remedies one week, crystals and amulets the next. The third week, it’s stocked with rabbit’s feet and animal skulls, lizard skins and strange feathered things. People can’t get enough. The week after that, the store is gone.
  • You roll your eyes at a group of tourists taking a Jack the Ripper walking tour: a dozen of them winding through the alleys and pubs, following a guide holding an umbrella above his head. You see the same group again later, and there are only ten of them now. The guide looks straight at you. You look away.
  • There’s a red telephone box on every corner. The tourists like to take pictures inside, outside, on top of them. Every night, after midnight, all the telephones begin to ring. Your mother told you never to answer. You cross the street to avoid the sound, pulling your scarf tighter around your throat as you scurry on.
  • It’s summer and the ponds in Hampstead Heath are spreading. The grass is growing higher, up to a man’s chest. It’s all marshland now, all the paths and bridges swallowed up by rising water and vegetation. That’s just how things are now, up North.
  • You run down the steps into Piccadilly Circus and weave through the crowd to the ticket barrier. You touch your Oyster card to the reader and it beeps disapprovingly. The reader flashes the message: Seek Assistance. You try again and get the same message. You’re irritated, you’re in a hurry. You look around for a ticket agent, but you don’t see anyone. The booths are shuttered. The station is empty. The lights are flickering. There is no one here to assist you.

    No, you don’t understand. This is an actual thing though.

    I know some folks who’d love this.

    It’s like a window on a parallel universe where Harold Godwinson won the Battle of Hastings.

    Now I want to write a story in that fashion!

    We had such movements in Germany too, but it always sounds so… nazi to me. Purity of language! Yeah, sure. I always have to think of the “pure” word “Gesichtserker” which some people think was meant to replace “Nase” as the German word for the nose. But probably, “Gesichtserker” was created in an attempt to satirize the language purity movement.

    I wish I could blow that up large enough to read it but at its largest before pixellating it is still illegible for me.

    Does your computer have a Magnifier in the accessories? It’s a program that zooms everything in, like a magnifying glass. You could try that. I had trouble too, then I used Magnifier (as well as looking at the large version) and could read it then.

    EDIT: No, you’re right, even then it’s too pixelly to make out some of it.

    Just check out the original source then.

    *cracks neck* my time has come

    Okay, first? Pay off all your debts. Take out a small loan and pay it off right away.

    Buy several hundred vacant houses. Schedule repairs for said houses with reputable contractors and make sizable down payments in advance. Get everything in writing and hang onto those deeds.

    Buy a large open parcel of land that is being auctioned for development. And when I say large, I mean LARGE.

    Sink millions into paying off people’s Kickstarters / college loans / medical bills / mortgages, and give generously charity organizations. That alone will carry off a lot of money.

    Once you’ve got things down to a reasonable level, say $1m, buy yourself a house, furnishings, appliances, and a dependable car. Pay everything off so that you own it free and clear. Purchase about $200k worth of something easy to liquidate (i.e. gold, gems, bonds, stocks). Put the rest onto prepaid credit cards and wait for Monday to roll around.

    NOW THE FUN BEGINS.

    You now have commendable credit and a shining public reputation.

    Fix up and flip those houses, sell them for fair market value or below to families who need them, or create non-profit homeless shelters. (After all, it’s not like you need to “make” money, this is all running on the proceeds from the property sales.)

    Sell the parcel of land to developers, or donate it to public works as a park or open space. Have them name it after you.

    Retire to your fully furnished home. Liquidate your extra assets, or leave them to appreciate in value for a later date. Make Christmas epic with those gift cards. Keep the extra money in the bank and keep your day job.

    And don’t worry about taxes when return time rolls around, because you’ll be able to write off several millions’ worth of charitable donations.

    Basically this

    Beyond this, consider how these professions might vary depending on who the customers are - nobles, or lower class. Are they good at their job or just scraping by? Do they work with lots of other people or on their own? City or village?

    For younger characters:

    • Apprentice to any of the above
    • Messenger/runner
    • Page/squire
    • Pickpocket
    • Shop assistant
    • Student
    • Looks after younger siblings

    (Images all from Wikimedia Commons)

    Also consider:

    Candlemaker
    Ferryman
    Factor (looks after business for an employer in another city)
    Tiler
    Cutler
    Beekeeper
    Apothecary
    Interpreter
    Furrier
    Moneylender/Banker
    Winemaker
    Tinker (small trader who repairs stuff)
    Nightsoil collector
    Customs officer

    Also a bonus for animal related professions:
    Fowler (supplies game birds for eating)
    Warrener (catches rabbits on your land for you to eat)
    Ostler (looks after your horses)
    Falconer (looks after your falcons)
    Cocker (looks after your fighting cocks)

    Body Language Cheat Sheet for Writers

    As described by Selnick’s article:

    Author and doctor of clinical psychology Carolyn Kaufman has released a one-page body language cheat sheet of psychological “tells” (PDF link) fiction writers can use to dress their characters.

    Very useful for artists as well! :>
