This Blog Is Called Untitled That's What
Consider the stakes. The lack of diversity and equity in the publishing industry is not a theoretical issue for us to intellectualize over coffee. It is an injustice. The destruction of libraries and burning of books has historically been used to strip peoples of their history and culture. Those in power continue to limit the ability of those they have subjugated to share their stories. They retain ultimate control of the narrative and their power.

SO EXCITING

FIC: Like A Fiery Beacon; Kurt/Blaine (NC-17)

Kurt/Blaine, NC-17 (~2k words)

Summary: Kurt and Blaine try 69ing. Written for the anon who prompted it based off of the top right corner of this lovely piece of fanart. Featuring oral and rimming. 

Mid-frottage, with Kurt’s lube-wet cock sliding rhythmically against his hip, it had seemed like a great idea. 

“We should try sixty-nining,” Blaine had blurted out, dropping his head back to watch Kurt’s eyes snap open, dark in the dimness of the room and looking lust-hazy.

Kurt had been quiet for a few moments, still thrusting.

“I don’t think that’s a thing people even do,” he’d finally said, mouth twisting skeptically even as the drag of his cock against Blaine’s skin grew faster and more frantic. 

“It is,” Blaine assured him, rocking his own hips up with a punctuating grunt. He saw it happen in porn all the time, after all. “It’s a thing.”

Disclaimer: This is not my own idea; I got the tip from the lovely Elentari-liv, who was kind enough to share her technique with me. This is only showing the basics I’ve used to knit the scales, not how to make any certain piece.
Also, keep in mind that I’m still a beginner at knitting. I’ve been doing it for approximately two weeks.
What you’ll need:
circular knitting needles
yarn
small scales
You’ll probably want to choose a yarn close to your scale colour, or one that complements it (I used a contrasting one here to make things easier to show). You may have to experiment a bit with the yarn gauge and size of the needles. I ended up using gauge three yarn and size six needles after some testing. Larger needles widened the gap between scales, so that the yarn was visible in between, which I didn’t want, and thicker yarn made the scales stick out too much as opposed to hanging. It looked like I was knitting a very ruffled dragon.
Scales can be purchased from The Ring Lord, with multiple choices of colour and material. I’ve experimented with both aluminum and steel; the steel seems to hang better because of its weight, but it all depends on what you need for your project!
(I’m putting the actual process under a read more because I do have a lot of photos.)

I’m gonna go ahead and put this under the resources tag for reenactors, cosplayers, Rennies and SCA-ers!

Today WNDB is excited to announce new team members Sona Charaipotra (@sonacharaipotra) and Dhonielle Clayton. They’re authors of the forthcoming TINY PRETTY THINGS (HarperTeen, Summer 2015) and co-founders of Cake Literary, a soon-to-be-launched book packaging company for diverse books. 

Follow them on Twitter at @sona_c and @brownbookworm! 

More about this dynamic duo:

Sona Charaipotra is an entertainment and lifestyle journalist based in New York City, where she lives with her professor/writer husband and her empirically adorable daughter Kavya. When she’s not busy watching Glee or The Vampire Diaries (for work, of course) around little Kavi’s schedule (or lack thereof — gotta love that DVR!), she’s plowing through a stack of teen novels or scribbling away on a middle grade fantasy at the New School, where she’s pursing an MFA in Writing for Children. Thanks to her Masters in Dramatic Writing and Diaspora Studies from NYU (where her thesis project was developed for the screen by MTV Films), Sona is a strong believer that three act structure can work in novels, too.

Dhonielle Clayton was born in the suburbs of Washington, DC and spent her childhood Saturdays at the comic book store with her father and most evenings hiding beneath her grandmother’s dining room table with a stack of books. She earned a BA in English at Wake Forest University. She was an English teacher for three years and worked with educational curriculum. Being surrounded by children, Dhonielle re-discovered her love of children’s literature and earned a masters in children’s and young adult literature from Hollins University. Currently, she is working on both middle grade and young adult novel projects.
