Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

NEAT NEAT NEAT NEAT!! Watch this. I wrote my thesis on the relationship between the internet and physical space and my views on it have evolved dramatically since then, but investigating how it is portrayed in film is such a cool way of analyzing it. Still much work to be done…I can’t wait to watch the first movie that takes place entirely on the internet.
So what happens if two people who have promised their firstborn to separate witches have a child together? Do they both just pop up in the nursery and have a custody battle?
I need a book about a little girl whose parents had promised their firstborn to different witches and the only way that both ends of the deal were fulfilled was for them to have joint custody of the child.
I love it!
And then the witches, forced to share a cottage while raising their joint stolen child, fall in love…
I have three mothers, and they all hate each other. You’d think that would make festivals pretty awkward around here, but actually, it’s all quite civil. The days between All Souls and St Michael’s I spend with my father and Lady Beatrix, and my mothers are invited to the high feasts. My father is in love with Lady Beatrix, I think. Sometimes I think he hates her, too, but Mama Bess says that’s normal for married people - she hated her husband whenever the moon was dark and sometimes just for the hell of it, she says.
If my father has any opinions on Mama Bess or Mistress Hecate beyond the courteous boredom he extends to most of his subjects, I’ve never seen any sign of them. He tells me I should call Mama Bess Mistress Bartram, but even Mistress Hecate says he worries too much about what’s proper and not what’s right.
