[personal profile] dialecticdreamer found a photo and created text for it, as part of the Frankenstein's Family series. Then I used that to make an image of the back. This is something that the village children find, shortly after the itinerant priest is encouraged to leave.

In our history, durable photos were not invented until 1815. The novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley was published in 1818, and the later entries in the framing stories were dated 17--. Within that canon, and even more so in this series, science has advanced much farther than in our history. So a durable photo is plausible in this context, but it may not be made by the same process we think of as photography.
ysabetwordsmith: (Schrodinger's Heroes)
 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer made this awesome bookmark as demifiction for the Schrodinger's Heroes series Don't Try This at Home.  TeJay is using this to keep his place in a library book.

The Mix It Up at Lunch project is a real activity designed by Teaching Tolerance.  There are lots of resources on the site explaining how it works.

... is to say something that makes the bastard wish he never opened his mouth.  This does not work for everyone or in all situations, but for some of us it is among our favorite weapons.  Although the details vary, this is about the caliber of response I tend to generate when someone flips off the safety cover and pushes the wrong button for the nuclear silo that is my mouth.
