Take note: this is how to properly disarm someone. Always go to the outside of the arm, not the inside.
ah yes I have been doing it wrong the whole time it seems cowering in fear was not the first step
I looked at myself in the full-length mirror. Now, I looked like an Araelian warrioress. With my silver armor, burgundy pants, rose-colored riding skirt, and my goldish-brown hair pulled back into a French braid, I looked like a figure out of a fairy tale. And I felt that way too. I smiled at my reflection before bending over to lace my boots.

Sometimes women warriors have lives outside of slaying beasts and decimating armies! Not often, though.
This is one of two pieces I have in the WOMEN WARRIORS ZINE that I have been putting together along with my two mighty collaborators Abby Boeh and Julia Scott! This FANTASTIC BEAST OF A ZINE will be debuting at MoCCA and include the artwork of over 25 truly excellent illustrators, so please check it out come April 6th & 7th in NYC!
Making a big zine like this has been a truly amazing experience. I’m blown away by the amount of interest in the project, but above all, I’m truly humbled by the variety and sheer talent of everyone who’s contributed.
"Mistresses, have you ever noticed that when we disagree with a male-I hesitate to say ‘man’- or find ourselves in a position OVER males, the first comment they make is always about our reputations or our monthlies?… If I disagree with you, should I place the blame on the misworkings of your manhood? Or do I refrain from so serious an insult… Far more serious… Than your hint that I am a whore."- Lady Knight Keladry of Mindelan, Tamora Pierce’s Lady Knight (via mithrosyeahtamorapierce)
Putting on makeup is such a spiritual experience I watch myself go from a 3 to a 9 right in front of my mirror I love it
