I kept dragging my heels on replying to your amazing smutfic because it’s so good that I wasn’t sure how to respond and then I got overwhelmed by the tumblrgeddon stuff, but the fic you wrote was beautiful and incredibly hot. I mean, I knew that it would be, since I found you on AO3 before I ever saw you on tumblr. This was great to read every time that I’ve read it. You’re a blessing to this fandom. <3

OMG, thank you so much! You just made a lousy day SO much better. And I’m so glad you liked the story. Thank you!!!

ETA that I plan on getting it betaed this weekend, so the full chapter should be up on AO3 soon.

“What urns?” said Nobby.

“Nude women are only Art if there’s an urn in it,” said Fred Colon. This sounded a bit weak even to him, so he added: “Or a plinth. Best is both, o’course. It’s a secret sign, see, that they put in to say that it’s Art and okay to look at.”

“Typical artist,” said Granny. “He
just painted the showy stuff in the front. Too proud to paint an honest potato!”
She poked at the page with an accusing finger. “And wat about these cherubs? We’re
not going to get them too, are we? I don’t like to see little babies flying
through the air.”

“They turn up a lot in old
paintings,” said Nanny Ogg. “They put them in to show it’s Art and not just
naughty pictures of ladies with not many clothes on.”

“Well, they’re not fooling me,” said Granny Weatherwax.

Once again, even from beyond the
grave, Terry Pratchett comes to the rescue. His books Thud and Wintersmith have the
perfect solution for saving adult content on Tumblr. We just need urns, plinths
and cherubs. We can do this people!

Everyone: this is how I found out I was flagged and marked explicit.  Check your stuff out and make sure you’re good to go.

Apparently I’m flagged as nsfw, and I had no way of knowing until now.

Same here. My blog is officially explicit, and I have no idea why.
