1. The role and functions of a pawn.
2. The weakest pieces on the board; numerous; interchangeable; existing to be sacrificed for the benefit of the real players.
3. Unlike other pieces, a pawn may not retreat. It can only go forward, one step at a time.
4. A pawn cannot capture a piece that blocks its path. It may only proceed if the opposing piece concedes ground, or if a different route is offered.
5. The en passant capture is a special move that permits one pawn to successfully attack another without directly engaging it.
6. Otherwise, the only way a pawn can capture is by going one step forward and to the left or right, in a single diagonal move.
7. In very rare occasions, if a pawn is allowed to cross the entire board, unscathed…
8. …it may be promoted to a queen, and, perhaps, turn the tide of the war.

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.”
I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.
And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.
I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.
this got way deeper than I was expecting

- “The Bell Jar" by Sylvia Plath
“I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart. I am, I am, I am.”
The Bell Jar is the only novel written by American poet, Sylvia Plath, and published in 1963. It is a semi-autobiographical novel that reflects Plath’s own life and portrays both her and her character’s progression into mental illness(probably clinical depression with possibly severe PMS). The book flawlessly captures what it is like to be trapped in the very depths of depression and how, if you are even able to, difficult it is to get yourself out.
As stated before, the book was semi-autobiographical of Plath’s life. To protect herself and the characters based on real people, she first published the book under the name Victoria Lucas. It wasn’t published under her real name until 1971, 9 years after Plath’s suicide in 1963.
The story follows Esther Greenwood (The main character who Plath based herself on) who although is a striving young writer, finds herself spiraling downward into a pit of depression and eventually a suicide attempt. Afterwards, she is put into a mental institution. Esther is given electroshock therapy, which, along with therapy helps to her to regain her sanity and cure her depression, which she describes in a most beautifully sad way, as being “trapped under a bell jar, stewing in her own sour air”.
