- Be nice to them. They’re doing an important job. Do not chase them, grab them or harass them.
- Always bring some food with you, it’s just polite.
- Approach them slowly, and let them come to you. Sometimes you might have to sit on the ground and tap it a few times. This is what you brought food for.
- At some point after you have managed to touch the cat it will turn and sprint away. This is when you start following it.
- Cats do not want you to get lost, but they can be fast. Never lose sight of them, you should stay with it until your return. This might still look like your usual street but you are in a liminal space already. Try not to get lost.
(NOTE: do not follow cats with mismatched eyes. You can pet them, but the moment they run away you should immediately turn your back to them and walk in the opposite direction.)
- Follow black cats into the floor-level vents. Don’t worry, there are many spider webs but there aren’t any spiders.
- Do not lose sight of them in the dark.
- When you emerge, you will be in the same street you were before, but there will be no people to be found.
- Do not stray, follow your cat. Sometimes it might want to just catch a bird and go back. Do not stay longer just to explore.
- If you hear the sound of a crowd in the distance do not try to follow it. Your cat will never lead you there.
- You can take anything with you but you cannot take pictures or record video or sound.
- Orange cats hang around train stations for a reason. Follow them into the next train. You will not need a ticket.
- If the cat wants you to scratch its ears during the trip, do it.
- The landscape will not look like the area around your town. Do not panic - this is normal.
- The people in the train will not speak a language you understand or recognize, but they will have clothes and devices similar to yours. They are usually nice.
- Get down at the same stop as your cat. You will not understand the name of the station, and no one will get off in the same station as yours. You should follow your cat, but it will never leave the station. Follow it into the next train to get back home.
- Never stay in the train. Never wait for the last stop.
- White cats live on the edges. They will take you to many places but at the same time they will never take you anywhere.
- If you meet them during the night-time, the sun will start rising, regardless of the time. If you meet them during the daytime, the sun will start setting. It will stay like this for the duration of the trip.
- Follow them to the edge of a forest that smells like honeysuckle. You will hear the song of birds and the flow of water. You should never stray and enter the forest on your own. Your cat will not follow.
- Follow them to a building where a fancy party is being held at. Through the windows you can see the food and the champagne. The guests will ask you to join them, but your cat will keep walking. Do not accept the invitation, and never eat the food or drink the champagne.
- Follow them along the edge of a swimming pool. People will be bathing, playing and laughing. It will be hot, regardless of the season. Do not step too close to the edge, because they will try to grab your ankles and pull you into the water. Keep walking.
- Once the sun finally sets or rises you will be back home. Never enter your house until you are completely sure the sky is changing.
- Calico cats are the safest. They will follow you instead.
- Walk around your town and you will see everything is the same, but you will not be able to make the connections between the streets.
- If you want to go to a certain place you will find it is no longer where it used to be.
- You will not recognize anyone. Every single person in the street will be a stranger. They are not dangerous but do not look them directly in the eyes.
- Never try to find your house. Because you will find it.
- When you want to come back take the cat back where you found it. This might be more difficult than you expect.
Remember to always take some food with you, something made of iron, and comfortable shoes.
And remember to always be nice to the cats!
Anonymous asked: Aaaaugh I’m really sorry to ask this and I know you answer questions like this all the time but I haven’t been able to find a straight answer anywhere else. Is there any possibility that you might know whether it’s considered offensive to describe people as having wood-colored skin? I know it’s considered offensive to compare skin color to food, but if it was said that someone had mahogany or pinewood skin or something, do you think that would be okay? Again, I’m really sorry.
This question is one not only of style but also of knowing and relating to your intended audience. There are no hard and fast rules on which descriptive words for skin color will be offensive to everyone every time. Though many descriptors for skin color have been identified as offensive or acceptable by large groups of people in the past, the reality is that every reader has their own preferences.
Similarly, there is no word choice that will fit perfectly in every stylistic circumstance. Tone, pacing, genre, character development, theme, and desired voice must all be taken into account.
So, you can understand that is difficult to advise you in any specific way. We cannot tell you yes or no. The best answer is that it depends.
The trick, I believe, is to think critically about the denotation and connotation of the word in question and use your best judgement. That judgement is born of experience and research, which means writing people with skin tones other than yours and learning about representing people who do not look like you from people who do not look like you. You may not have the experience or have done the research, and that’s okay, but the only person who can answer your question is you. You know your style and level of experience. You know the circumstances. You are the one who knows your intended audience and interacts with your readers.
This is a situation where the answer cannot just be given to you. You need to do the research and gain the experience, then you can decide these things for yourself.
Here are a few resources to speed you on your way:
- Writing Characters of Color
- Words used to describe skin color
- Skin Tone Chart
- Guide to Human Types Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 and the Catalogue of Human Features, all by majnouna
IMPORTANT: If you’re thinking of using these guides, it’s definitely worth it to read this “thoughts on skintones” discussion. Be advised that it is focused more on drawing than on writing. Still worth it.

I swear by Apollo the Healer, by Asclepius, by Hygieia, by Panacea, and by all the gods and goddesses, making them my witnesses, that I will carry out, according to my ability and judgment, this oath and this indenture……
- The Hippocratic Oath
I know I reblogged this before but I have to reblog it again and just comment on how much I love this. First of all the colouring. Like, it’s kept relatively simply, but that makes it so so good somehow and the colours are so nicely balanced it’s just !!! Then the shading of course, it creates this glow and it’s so well done, underlining his expression and all like omg. Then just the entire composition if this, the angle from that you see his face, Will’s pose, I can’t put a too clear name on the emotion that’s conveyed but it’s clear how concentrated he is from the expression in his eyes alone. And of course the general art style. All the details, the way his hair is drawn, the way there is so much little stuff worked in you don’t see at first glance, like the freckle like points in the shading on his face. In short I just really love this drawing @mormoc
@sunlightschadow My gosh! this is wonderful message!!! I’m really happy with that. Thank you so much, Sunny, sweetie. It means a lot to me. I am almost crying! Btw When I read a book about medical history, I saw the Hippocratic Oath. (Please check the Oath, if you are interested in it ;)) The oath is completely new to me. And suddenly it reminded me of the children of cabin7. They have to see many campers injured and suffering from hurts. Can you imagine how hard the doctor’s role is? I’m not sure how to say….. but I guess they need to concentrate and need quick reactions to save people’s lives. I admire them so much. I admire Will. This is how this drawing came into my mind. I guess this is what you felt from my drawing :) I know you love art so much. Sunny. You always draw so emotional and colorful too! I love it so much!! So please keep up your work!
Honestly, I think the whole “don’t pay the writers” thing boils down to the notion that everybody thinks they can write. It’s the old saw about the novelist at a cocktail party having to hear someone say, for the millionth time, “I’d love to write a book someday.”
Someone–Stephen King? Pretty sure I saw this in a Stephen King foreword–once said they’d like to say to a brain surgeon, “Boy, I’d love to do brain surgery someday.”
We treat “the ability to put words into a sentence” like it’s just the same as “the ability to form a coherent narrative that engenders a variety of emotions within the reader and puts them in a scene and shows them what they didn’t see before”.
And that’s like me drawing a stick figure and saying I’m an artist.
Writers are constantly devalued because everyone thinks they have a book in them and don’t realize the level of skill and commitment it takes to finish even a short story, much less a whole book.
This goes well beyond fandom, but man, I would’ve hoped fandom would know better.
