"holiness for you
was always in the quiet
of the world,
never in the flesh of another.

the blood you lick from your lips
must taste like freedom."
— Emily Palermo, excerpt of Artemis (via camilla-macauley)

Poison Toffee Apples for Halloween

Ingredients
2 cups granulated sugar
¾ cups water
½ cup liquid glucose/light corn syrup
few drops black gel food colouring
6 Granny Smith apples (or 12 small apples)



Instructions
Grease a piece of baking paper and place on a tray/baking sheet.
Insert bamboo skewers in all the apples and set aside.
In a medium pot, combine the sugar, water, glucose/corn syrup and food colouring and stir over medium heat until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture feels smooth when you rub it between your fingers.
When the sugar has dissolved, turn the heat up and wash the sides of the pot down with a pastry brush dipped into clean water to prevent crystals from forming.
Allow the caramel to boil until it reaches the hard crack stage (150°c/310°F).
Carefully dip the apples into the hot candy mixture and place on the baking paper to set and cool for approximately an hour before serving.

Teeny tiny linkspam on aromanticism

queenieofaces:

Someone asked for a teeny tiny linkspam on aromanticism, so here goes!  And by “here goes” I mean “I fell into a rabbit hole of links for like two and a half hours and emerged covered in mud and clutching this linkspam; I am so sorry; you probably did not care this much.”

Let’s start with the basics:

Let’s talk about (a)romantics by Intimacy Cartography

Aromanticism 101 by anagnori

An Aromantic Primer by The Thinking Asexual

anagnori on how to be a better ally to aromantic people

What’s being aromantic like?

Becoming Loveless by chekhovandowl

swankivy on how she figured out she was aromantic

anagnori comparing aromanticism to being in a musical

…And Then What? on The Asexuality Archive

Jo on Experiences of Loving

Aromantic people in relationships (or not!):

A comic about being an aromantic person with a girlfriend by chekhovandowl

I found the right person and I’m still aromantic by A Fine Line

Jo on being an aromantic in a partnered relationship

What I’ve Missed Out on Being Single by Asexuality Archive

swankivy on never being #1

I don’t understand dating, so I’m getting married by Sciatrix

Aromanticism in the larger context:

Why aromanticism matters for the entire asexual community by anagnori

This whole conversation on commitment (post links to the rest of the conversation) is really interesting

Alloromantics vs. aromantics: the great divide by me (here on The Asexual Agenda)

Why I no longer engage the “Are aces queer?” question by ace-muslim (here on The Asexual Agenda)

anagnori on internalizing anti-aromantic messages

Obligatory nudges toward wtfromanticism, greyromanticism, and demiromanticism, as there is a lot of overlap (one of the above pieces is written by a wtfromantic)

"As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.

But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London."

Fudge recipe on a headstone

I feel like I should make this just to be able to say a dead person taught me how to make it. Maybe I’ll do it for Halloween.

I desperately hope that she spent her entire life telling people that they could have her fudge recipe “over my dead body.”

That last comment is absolutely worth reblogging.
