Deep Space Nine

-This sums up why I love this show. The most underrated Star Trek ever created. Twenty-years ahead of its time. And in my opinion, the best they ever made of Gene Roddenberry’s legacy. Currently streaming on Netflix. Give it a shot.

Now everyone will know its secret. That DS9 is just one big Action Comedy movie about Star Trek nerds.

roselerner said: Dear Man, Sometimes when I'm walking down the street and my face happens to be in repose, men will request or, in extreme cases, order me to smile. Why is this? Should I oblige them? Yours, &c., A Woman With A Naturally Solemn Face

ask-a-man:

Dear Naturally Solemn,

We all know that it is impossible that you could be thinking of something other than the man before you as you walk down the street. Why would a female think of the household budget or the book she is reading or whether she is likely to be sacked for knocking over the coal scuttle, when she could be thinking about a Man instead?

No; your failure to smile must be a personal judgment. For shame, Naturally Solemn. If you do not smile, men will believe that they are not the center of your universe. Only a heartless jade would send that message.

Now, I recognize that smiling at random men on the street will no doubt open women to all sorts of advances from unscrupulous fellows who mistake their pleasantries for interest. But that is what women get for smiling at all men willy-nilly. Shameless hussies!

I hope I have clarified why men order you to smile. How else are we to teach you that you cannot win?

Sincerely,
Stephen Shaughnessy
Male Center of the Universe

"Treetops" 
This is the last piece included in my Imagined Realms book up on kickstarter. I got the idea for this one just a few weeks before launching, and was able to get it wrapped up just in time. :)
