    Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

    Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

    A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

    With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

    Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

    So here are some buzz words~

    Natural colors!
    Art Nouveau!
    Handcrafted wares!
    Tailors and dressmakers!
    Streetcars!
    Airships!
    Stained glass window solar panels!!!
    Education in tech and food growing!
    Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
    Solar rooftops and roadways!
    Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
    Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
    No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
    Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

    Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

  • I. I was the first person to teach you that love was not always a white light to a ship lost at sea.

    II. On my worst days, the sky was a festering wound that wouldn’t heal. I didn’t want to be that to you.

    III. On my worst days, you were the only word I could say without clenching my fists.

    IV. I really did love you, I just couldn’t claw my way out of the ground to do it properly.

    V. None of this was your fault.

    VI. I’m sorry I was your lighthouse. I’m sorry you couldn’t see the wall of rocks on my shore.

    the notebook problem: you see a notebook. you want to buy the notebook. but you know you have like TEN OTHER NOTEBOOKS. most which are STILL EMPTY. you don’t need to notebook. you’re probably not gonna use the notebook anyway. what’s the point? DONT BUY THE NOTEBOOK. you buy the notebook.
