Tales of the Blacksmith's Daughter
Music Player Code

So this blog has gotten a lot broader than where it began. While its still a place where I promote and advertise my fic, its also a place where I fangirl over various awesome WOC- they are mostly black women-, and talk about things that are important to me and other WOC.

Though the tv show Merlin may have disappointed me Queen Guinevere and the actress that played her, Angel Coulby, was awesome to the end and I think both the actress and the character deserve a blog that continues to acknowledge their existence. So this blog will maintain Queen Guinevere's colors and image because she was awesome.

There are some other shows and characters that I fangirl over here. Sleepy Hollow and the fabulous Abbie Mills, her sassy friend and partner Ichabod Crane and the enigmatic Jenny Mills. There is also Scandal and the powerhouse fixer and anti-hero Olivia Pope. And finally the absolutely brilliant Joan Watson. Other awesome WOC appearing here are Martha Jones and Lt. Nyota Uhura.

You want to arm me? Good. Then arm me with a school psychologist at my school who has time to do more than test and sit in meetings about testing.

Arm me with enough counselors so we can build skills to prevent violence, have meaningful discussions with students about their future and not merely frantically adjust student schedules like a Jenga game.

Arm me with social workers who can thoughtfully attend to a student’s and her family’s needs so I. Can. Teach.

Arm me with enough school nurses so that they are accessible to every child and can work as a team with me rather than operate their offices as de facto urgent care centers.

Arm me with more days on the calendar for teaching and learning and fewer days for standardized testing.

Arm me with class sizes that allow my colleagues and I to know both our students and their families well.

Arm my colleagues and I with the time it takes to improve together and the time it takes to give great feedback to students about their work and progress.

Until you arm me to the hilt with what it will take to meet the needs of an increasingly vulnerable student population, I respectfully request you keep your opinions on schools and our safety to yourself, NRA. Knock it off.

- Mary Cathryn Ricker, President of the St. Paul Federation of Teachers.  (via reverberatingowl)

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little…
