Should I Do Things Under My Real Name?

I do things under a fake name because of my family.

I’m the third born son in a conservative Mormon family. One where everybody is pretty well known because everyone in my family is capable of making friends most places they go. And we all played sports, even me.

I grew up playing baseball and football and stuff, and I was good at it, but everyone already knew me.

Everywhere I go the people in charge have known me as Brandon or Rush’s little brother. I never got to make an impression on my own. Everyone just expected me to be another one of the family. That’s why I quit sports. Because I could never be known or given a real chance because of my family’s reputation.

So when I started writing, I started using a fake name because even in the arts my brothers are somewhat known. At least by the people who were a part of our lives.

Aside from constantly being compared to my brothers and my sister, I come from conservative mormons. I do have some differing beliefs from that, but if I tell people where I come from, more often than not they’re just going to assume that I hate gay people, which is far from the truth seeing as I’m not completely straight myself.

But I’ve always held myself back from doing what I can because I’m always afraid of hearing that same “Oh you’re Rush’s brother?” Or “You’re Mormon? How many wives do you have? Why do you hate gay people?”

I’m worried that those things are going to follow me for the rest of my life, so I use a fake name with only the connotations I give it.

But it does get exhausting trying to keep those things separate. Should I use my real name? Or should I just keep my fake name and publish under that?

This is why you should have a cat y’all. Egyptians believed that cats repelled evil spirits.

Cats are evil spirits. They’re just the strongest so all others must bow to their greatness.

Actually according to legend, cats are guardians of the Underworld. So once you are dead if you try to sneak back into the land of the living they send you back where you came from. They protect the living from the dead.

If you ever wonder why a cat stares off into the wild blue yonder and then bolts off for “no reason…”

That cat even looks like it’s accusing him of something like wait a Fucking minute here are you dead did you really think you could slip that shit passed me

I don’t know where you get your sources but cats were not fucking “guardians of the underworld”; this movie is based on EGYPT, cats were common domestic pets by the time Egypt unified, and they were representations of the goddess Bastet, ex goddess of warfare (formerly asociated with a lioness ), post-unification protector goddess. Cats were guardians of houses because they embodied the representation of Bastet, the “EYE of Ra”, the one that tells ra whatever happens. If a cat saw an evil spirit, it would tell Ra, and Ra would smite down the fucker in an instant. Bastet was also feared by evil spirits because she was the only one to be able to harm the evil snake Apep and save Ra’s ass, so you bet someone that escaped Anubis’ judgement and Osiris’ preservation would do well to fear Bastet out of fear of being caught by said gods.
They were seen as this as well because they disposed of rats and snakes (perhaps an egyptian once saw a cat killing a snake and went "OH BAST JUST KILLED APEP" and that’s how the mythos started), so they were useful animals to keep as pets, revered, adored, mourned when they died, and if you killed one you received death penalty.

The only animal seen as a “guardian of the underworld” were jackals, because they embodied Anubis and were seen near tombs, but that’s because they entered said tombs to try and eat the corpses and the egyptians based their entire Anubis lore on them.

So yeah, if you were an evil emperor that escaped the process of the gods you once worshipped, unleashed curses around the world disrespecting your own pantheon, and you came across an avatar of the goddess of Warfare that could also call upon Ra to pulverize you with sunlight, and have your soul sundered by Osiris and weighted by Anubis to go to your rightful place as someone who perished AGES ago, you would shit on your pants as well.

can you imagine Oliver having to show up at quidditch trials and say ‘anyone who’s here to try out for seeker better go back up to the castle because an 11 year old boy rode a broom for the first time today and McGonagall gave him the seeker position before asking me or letting me see him play sorry guys’
