I wish they would announce which day the Korra panel is going to be at NYCC because that is one of the biggest factors in whether I choose to go. And meanwhile there are other time sensitive things to decide like plane tickets and getting tickets for the con on eBay.

I am inhabited by a cry.
Nightly it flaps out
Looking, with its hooks, for something to love.
I am terrified by this dark thing
That sleeps in me;
All day I feel its soft, feathery turnings, its malignity.
Clouds pass and disperse.
Are those the faces of love, those pale irretrievables?
Is it for such I agitate my heart?
I am incapable of more knowledge.
What is this, this face
So murderous in its strangle of branches? —
Its snaky acids hiss.
It petrifies the will. These are the isolate, slow faults
That kill, that kill, that kill.—Excerpt from “Elm" by Sylvia Plath; for Korra Week Day 3: Fear
Korra Week, Day 4 (8/27): Home.
"It doesn’t matter where you go. If you have your family with you, you’ll always be at home."
