This felt like an 8 hour movie. For once, I wouldn't have minded if they'd stretched things longer, but everyone got great character development and it was a rollicking good time.

…Some weeks just not starting more ginormous WIPs is the real success, okay? I expended a lot of focus on absolutely positively not starting SEVERAL things this week (and… yep, that is definitely the only thing that was using up brain processing cycles this week at an unusual rate, YEP, TOTALLY).

Anyway. 

WIPs currently active: 5, because I bumped All Eternals Deck #2 off the list until I figure out what happens after the beginning.

Words written this week: 4,041

WIPs that got no words this week: 0

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 883, and I started writing Chapter 47 and then abruptly discovered where the floating point on the outline labeled [particular sex act redacted]? should go in the story, so. Whee!

Born in the Blood: 276, chugging along toward [more sex acts redacted]!!

Slavefic #6: 104. Okay, that looks bad? I’m at the point where I outlined things for this part of the series literally almost two years ago and now have to figure out how to hook them up with the stories that I’ve actually written, so there’s a bit of frantically-jury-rigging-a-round-CO2-filter-from-square-components going on. Hopefully none of which will be apparent from the end result. :)

Wildly Unmanageable Ace!Bitty Longfic: 661

I would like to state, for the record, that I seriously hate having finances that are in a state where all it takes is one unexpected larger expense to send me panicking. :-/

So, yes, it's looking like my tentative plans to make it to PAX Unplugged are crashing and burning at the moment. And there's a very good chance that I'm not going to have enough money to cover some bills that will be popping up in the next 2-3 weeks, which means I'm probably going to be going through my belongings and putting up another virtual garage sale post in the next few days.

Mainly because the universe fucking hates me right now. Apparently, at least.

It's been awhile since I posted it, so here's my Ko-fi page if anyone has an extra couple of dollars to spare. If anyone makes a donation, I'd be glad to try to write you a short fic in a fandom that I know. And, like I said before, I'll probably be posting a bunch of books and DVDs (and probably some other stuff as well) for sale in the next few days if anyone's interested in such things.

The thing about not posting for a long time is, it makes it seem ever harder to post something again.

The thing -- well, a thing -- about the state of my native country is, it makes almost anything I could post about my day-to-day life seem picayune.

But my life is my life, and I live it day to day, and that, especially fannish aspects thereof, is what I generally write about here. So I'm going to try to do so again.

I went to VividCon, and it was great )

My lay chaplaincy had a sort of epilogue today )

Kayaking continues to be tremendous fun! )

My cat is hanging on, amazing our vet )

And we have another big trip coming up! )

thoughts (somewhat spoilery) on fannish TV: Orphan Black, Sense8, The Handmaid's Tale )

Aside from all this, I'm reading lots of light fanfic, lots of heavy stuff on Twitter (although I don't post much there either), and the occasional book. And now I'm going to wrap up this enormous post and go lie on the couch. My evening plan!

Well, I didn't hate it. There were a couple things I liked? But mostly I came away from this needing some fic where Falcon and Luke Cage run across each other in Harlem and have coffee and admire each other's muscles. Or maybe a fic where the Winter Soldier and Black Sky fight to a draw, make out a little, and commiserate about being amnesiacs with annoying fight-loving do-gooder boyfriends who won't give up on them, and then go their separate ways. Is that too much to ask?? *checks AO3* Yep, it's too much to ask.

Defenders, the good and the bad )

THIS IS SO MUCH FUN )

I WANT TO WATCH MORE BUT IT'S REALLY LATE DAMMIT.
Michael J. Yochim, Protecting Yellowstone: Details a series of conflicts about park management over the past few decades, including the reintroduction of wolves, the continued use of snowmobiles, gold mining, and allowing bison to roam beyond park boundaries. The bottom line is simple: politics always wins. But political coalitions can be built depending on the strength of the relevant science, as well as on the framing of issues as being about protecting nature, preserving access to the park, or promoting the economy of the surrounding areas.

I realized I never actually finished the season and The Defenders is out, oops!

I still think it's by far the weakest of the shows but in the end I didn't hate it.

spoilers for it all and a fair bit of criticism )

Time for the Defenders!
Figs (oh nom nom nom!), yellow nectarines, red bell peppers, tiny sweet peppers, quart of kimchi, pork belly, pita, spanakopita, peach-and-ricotta pie, and 8.5 lbs of tomatoes.

I'm making ketchup! Locals and relatives might get one of the jars, depending on how many I actually wind up up with after the canning is finished.

[If an email like this doesn't show up in my work inbox in the near future, my faith in humanity won't be shattered. I work for one of those "legal with the gov't, okay by us" internet companies.]


"I woke up this morning [...] and decided to kick them off the Internet." -Matthew Prince, CEO of CloudFlare

You've helped maintain their internet presence for months or even years, despite hating everything they stand for. We all acknowledge and accept this as part of working for any company without a morality clause in the terms of service. But being legal doesn't make it moral, and isn't it better when there's less objectionable content out there? Even the most permissive terms include room for interpretation. WordPress previously claimed to "not censor, period", but its not censorship if they're saying the wrong things. What customers does your company have that should be 'reconsidered'?

Each day at work we're making the choice to keep those voices out there, helping the enemy. Have you developed conscientious objections? Isn't it time to take a stand? Your employer's policies don't have to tie your hands. Delete the bad websites. Route the objectionable emails to the trash. Those people don't belong on your servers, only the right kind of people do.

You work hard every day to keep the internet running like a well-oiled machine. This as just a bit more trash to clean up.

I've had a Week. It's better than it could have been (by far), but yikes. Luckily, my classes don't start until the week after next, but I need to seriously get my ducks in a row with school supplies and organizing my reading and just outright collecting my reading materials.

In a very me-specific annoyance, part of my 501 class is locating all of the class readings via full-text searches and/or ordering it from somewhere. This is actually a really good teaching tactic so that all the future baby librarians will learn how to find full-text material quickly and easily. I'm annoyed by it because that's my main #1 task at the job I've worked for the last 8 years and for which I obtain money that pays my bills. I KNOW how much of a pain this is/is going to be. There are gonna be 40+ of THAT STUDENT coming at the library downstate. :\ Hands to the sky for my ILL sestras and bretheren.

I did get my book for my second class. I know considerably less about that one as the teacher won't post the class module until next week. I need to start reading that thing.

So tired.

There's an exchange called Spectre Requisitions, which is for rarer 'ships in the Mass Effect fandom. It's a lot of fun, and I've participated in it the last two years.

Anyway, I seriously lucked out on my gifts this year, so I need to flail about them a little. I know that I have some Mass Effect fans over here on DW, so maybe some of you will of interest.

First, for a treat, I received a lovely piece of artwork. ♥ I absolutely adore F!Shepard/Garrus/Tali (to the point that 15% of the works on the AO3 about that relationship are fics by me), so I was absolutely thrilled to get the notification for that.

But my actual gift really wins everything. Because someone wrote me 22k words of Ashley/F!Shepard/Kaidan, based on a prompt that I've included in various exchanges for something like three or four years now. It's amazing, and you should totally go read it if you're even remotely intrigued by the idea of that relationship.
