I’ve come to the conclusion that Sam and Dean would take one look at Night Vale and burn it to the ground, civilians be damned.

i’ve come to the conclusion sam and dean would drive into night vale and spontaneously combust from being exposed to sexual and racial diversity and women who don’t die within a week

Oh man, there’s this post that’s floating around tumblr that sums it all up so beautifully, and I thought I had faved it, but I can’t find it.

In a nutshell, she’s a horrible person who doesn’t deserve an ounce of the fame and success she’s received.

If you’ve got time for the whole oak tree, well, gather ‘round.

She started off as a Harry Potter author, and was a BNF thanks to The Draco Trilogy. Now, I didn’t follow her work personally, since she was a tad before my time, but from what I understand, she was first caught “plagiarizing” various lines from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. When readers called her out on it, she laughed it off and said that was her way of paying homage to her favorite show. Which, okay, understandable. I do that on the very rare occasion myself, but only when the scene leads into it and I can’t stop myself from using the line.

From then on, she turned it into a game. See how many lines you could find in each chapter and get mentioned in my next update sort of thing. I’m leaving my opinions out of this one, but you can probably guess what they are by my use of the word “rare” in the previous paragraph.

The proverbial shit hit the fan when someone realized that large chunks of C.C.’s work were nearly word for word copies of this small-time fantasy (sci-fi?) writer whose name or work I don’t remember off the top of my head. And when I say large chunks, I’m talking whole paragraphs that she just up and stole and put into her stories.

When people started calling her out on that, she turned to cyberbullying. To. The. EXTREME. She would attack you. She’d get her fanbase to attack you. She went as far as to find out your personal information and make your real life a living hell if you got on her bad side. She tried to get one chick expelled from her university. She was straight up cray-cray.

Time moved on and she landed herself a publishing deal. While her Mortal Instruments series isn’t The Draco Trilogy revamped, it does contain heavy chunks of her fanfic placed within where convenient.

Which, hey, that seems to be a bit of a trend with her.

But then, guess what? She never actually stopped cyberbullying. After her books were published, a few people tweeted C.C., one with a link to an article that called her out on her bullshit. Her reaction? To make herself the victim and allow her followers to bully the poor soul until they figured everything was their fault, apologized, and deleted their twitter account.

The cyberbullying accusations never stopped. Unfortunately, fandom is only just starting to get a voice as far as mass media is concerned. But they were getting loud enough for C.C. to grow nervous. She’s friends with a lawyer, and with their help, started to silence anyone who spoke out against her with threats of lawsuit and slander.

Slander…is that the right word? (EDIT: No, it’s libel)

Anyways, because of all that, a large chunk of us in fandom are tickled pink that her movie is failing so spectacularly. She’s achieved the ultimate dream of a lot of writers out there in fandom, and she did it through plagiarism, cyberbullying, and basically stomping on anyone who got in her way.

Here’s a few links (that contain more links within) that have solid sources, and can tell her story far more accurately than I just did.

EDIT: http://ift.tt/KW1981 (this one contains examples of her plagiarizing)

Be sure you have a few hours of spare time if you’re curious enough to go into this. Because her evil, evil roots go deep.

the fantasy author she plagarized from is pamela dean, btw, the most amazing writer of writerliness and author of the secret country trilogy.

// “You’re going to stay here, like -” he paused to gulp nervously (god, what if he was wrong) “like a good boy,” he finished, voice breaking a little on the end. The look on Blaine’s face then was something Kurt would never in a million years forget - like he’d gotten something wonderful and fantastic that he’d never even known he wanted. (x)

// “What do you want me to do?” Kurt asked, throwing his hands in the air. “Spank you?” It was supposed to be sarcastic. It should have sounded like a ridiculous suggestion; Kurt had meant it to illustrate the absurdity of Kurt punishing Blaine for his disobedience. But the word hung in the air like crackling electricity. “Yes,” Blaine said softly. (x)

// Sex, for Kurt and Blaine…it’s special. It’s about the physical stuff, sure, the urgency in their lips and the buzz at the pit of his stomach and Kurt’s breath coming faster and faster in his ear and his limbs sliding sweat-slick over Kurt’s. But it’s about other stuff, too. It’s about the way Kurt held Blaine’s face in his hands and locked eyes with him when they made love the first time. It’s about the whispered I love yous between thrusts. It’s about the relieved breath Blaine releases every time Kurt slides Blaine’s bowtie off and presses a kiss where it sat tight around his throat. It’s about the sense of absolute safety Blaine has with Kurt, no matter what they’re doing. It’s about the way Kurt can make a bite feel like a kiss, and a kiss feel like a benediction. (x)

.Studs, Studs and More Studs | Born Pretty Store.

Super simple but super snazzy nails using just three polishes and some gorgeous studs from Born Pretty Store!

Polish Used:

Base - Duri Rejuvacote

Ciate - Bon Bon

Deborah Lipman - Boom Boom Pow*

OPI - Don’t Pretzel My Buttons

Born Pretty Store - Large 4mm Gems* (in number 4)

Born Pretty Store - Coloured Stones*

Top - Seche Vite

With a good nail prep routine these stayed on for over 5 days…those bad boys weren’t going anywhere! Just press the studs into a layer of wet polish using a dotting tool and cover with a top coat, easy peasy. Such a simple look but really effective and the neutral colours helped them go with everything - loved these and i was quite sad to take them off!

Want to give these a go? Tweet me a picture @xameliax #bornprettystuds, i’d love to see them!
