In conclusion Fiona is great and just because Disney didn’t make her doesn’t mean she doesn’t exist.

Supernatural season 9: Sam and Dean + Parenting
Salutations, all! I had an idea for a very long and elaborate crossover fic not long ago, and I thought I’d put a rough draft of the first chapter out there to gauge people’s interest in it. By all means, do let me know what you think!
One day, the Sorting Hat gave up. It simply sat on a student’s head for several long, awkward minutes, remaining completely silent, until at last the Headmaster whisked it off and strode back to the head table with it, looking unusually perturbed.
Exciting prospect and v curious how the doctor broke the hat?? Did you ever continue this? i found it in my drafts =P
Me: *looks at browser tabs*
Me: Ahhh, so THAT’S what I was interested in yesterday.
Me: i should probably finish that… *doesn’t*
The conflation of “literacy” with “the ability to read” really bothers me. It shouldn’t matter what form your consumption of a text takes (ie whether you “read” an alphabet with your eyes and/or fingers or if you listen to someone else/a machine reading the text to you), if you are interacting with a text, you are engaging in literacy. I’m not knocking the ability to read, it can be super useful and even important, but I dislike the idea that one is “illiterate” if one can’t “read” in the traditional sense (I consider listening to audiobooks and such to be a form of reading, but that’s for another post). The only thing that makes someone illiterate (in the textual sense) is if they refuse to engage with text through any means reasonably available to them. I know so many people who technically can read, but refuse to, often because they’ve been given the wrong things to read (glares at secondary education and the accepted Western canon) or because they were never actually taught how to engage in a text to make it anything more than homework. Similarly, I know academics in literary fields (myself included) who need to use a screenreader or such, but are extremely literate when it comes to their actual textual engagement. Obviously we need to work on ways to make reading education more adaptive to individual needs, but we also need to work to promote alternative methods of text consumption and teach students how to engage with a text beginning at a much younger age.
You may not always have a choice in how well you can read, but you can have a choice in how literate you are, and educators need to make that choice more accessible.
Friendly reminder that Piper would have looked like this as a kid:
She isn’t white or ‘tan’ (as I’ve heard her being called before)
SHE’S HALF CHEROKEE!!! (and since the gods don’t have any DNA or permanent physical form, she could be fully Cherokee)
Don’t take this representation away from Cherokee people, it’s not like they get much else!
