Tamora Pierce (source)
I’m just rediscovering these books and this woman after about two and a half years of developing emotionally and personally (and falling in love). Turns out, hers are the books I want my future children (especially daughters) to read not just because they’re exciting and well-written, but because the characters make good value judgments and are good role models not just for how to behave, but how to treat others.
Can anyone tell me approximately what kind of a student would get a 1500 on their SATs? Like if you have a 90% average what kind of an SAT mark are you likely to get?
2200 out of 2400 can correspond to grades around 90-100%. I think a 90 average would probably get higher than 1500…though it depends on the person and the classes they take.

Tamora Pierce taught me that even children can be teachers - and in turn, I began teaching music and dance to others when i was 15. Thank you Tamora!
That strength comes from within. The importance of friendship. That you can choose your own family.
That even if your dreams seem impossible, with enough effort and determination you can be or do whatever you want. That it doesn’t matter what other people think you should be but what you think you can be.
OH MY GOD
Well, that was unexpected.
Funny AND I can justify putting it on my pr0n blog! Hurrah!
Everything will now be rated on a scale of “CW Hotness.”
I re-read Tamora Pierce’s Trickster series approximately every two or three months, at least. As attached as I am to Daine, and Kel, the Trickster series is by and large my favorite of Tamora Pierce’s works. There is something infinitely appealing in crows and Kyprioth and political revolution. I somehow never grow tired of these stories in these very well-worn pages.
*cannot word love feelings for these books*
This is a scarily accurate description of what I do and feel…
Here’s my 2nd year Calarts film!
