In October,
we revisited the Boranup forest,
this time with my Mum.

Everything was so much greener,
always so much love for Boranup.


The beast with hair of green.




More forest, this time in October )

THIS FANGIRL!!

I am so pleased. My relationship with my laptop has been saved. Not to mention my relationship with DW, AO3, DragCave, online banking, and anything else requiring a login!

Rejoice with me by telling me what you've been up to lately. :D

I always feel a bit empty
if I don't get to visit the Boranup forest at least once a year.

Comprising mostly young karri leaves,
with a distinctive karri biome,
made up of metres of layers of karri bark that drops from the silvery branches every year.


Grey days, silvery trees.

Although I was born in the Midwest, spent much of my childhood in Iowa, and have lived in San Francisco for nearly 18 years now, I consider my hometown to be Santa Rosa, California, where my family moved when I was 13. It's where I went to junior high and high school, the city where my parents still live, and the place both my brothers went back to when it was time to go home.

And I've spent the last three days watching it burn.

This got a little long. )

Overall for Inktober,
I've been working on a very large project.
But for the past few days I've been away,
and did some ballpoint pen sketches instead.
I actually really love it as a medium?

These are all really small irl.
Done with your standard trashy Kilometrico ballpoint pen

Q3 Reading Goals Check-In

So, I've fallen behind on reading. I can pinpoint two reasons for this: it's taking me a good a month to read The Stone Sky (not that it isn't very good, but I'm finding it slow going), and I find I want to spend my media time watching TV or listening to podcasts instead. There's no particular reason for this, that I can discern; it's just where my head as been at lately.

Anyway, my goals are posted here, and my last check-in, from July, is here. I have currently read 26 books, still quite a bit behind the pace to hit a goal of 50. Of these, 8 books are by authors of color, or about 30%; not great, but by author I'm at 8 out of 18, a slightly more respectable 44%. And since I've read most of the books in series I plan to read this year, I hope for that percentage to go up. Still no non-fiction (although Trevor Noah's memoir is on deck next -- I need to read it in time to give back to my aunt on Thanksgiving) or graphic novels, and I continue to fail at getting older books off my TBR. Why do great new books need to keep coming out? Why? I will never read everything ever written at this pace.

Does anybody know what became of priestess_grrrl on LJ?

I'd planned to ask her to 'port the old lovelessdiscuss comm on LJ over to DW, but her LJ profile doesn't give any of her new locations and, although I thought I'd found her here a while ago, looking through my flist I'm not seeing any names that ring a bell.

Yuletide letter (yes really)

Dear Yuletide author,

Thanks for writing me my very first Yuletide story ever! I'm excited to participate for the first time. While I'm sure anything you write will be great, and I included suggested prompts on my sign-up I wanted to share some of my general likes and dislikes.

In general:

My favorite fanworks are almost always grounded in canon somehow -- missing scenes, what happened before or after the story we saw, delving into someone's thoughts motivations. What-if AUs are great, too, but I prefer seeing canon as the clear jumping off point. I'm less interested in crossovers, fusions, or stories that take the characters and put them in an unfamiliar setting. I am never here for character or ship bashing, and I am particularly protective of the female characters that I love.

I love gen fic, friendship fic, family of choice fic, and romance. I tend to be more interested in het or F/F slash than in M/M slash. I tend to prefer vanilla to kinky (with the exception of threesomes), lots of feelings to porn without plot, and reality-grounded stories to crack. I dislike stories with consent issues: rape, incest, large age differences (especially if one character is a minor and the other is not), sexual situations with prepubescent children, and extreme power differentials. My favorite trope of all time is separation and reunion, and this applies to family and friends as well as lovers.

I hope this is enough to get you started! Thanks again for writing, and have fun! I'm sure as long as you love what you're doing, I'll love it, too.

For more about the Something on Sunday project, see [twitter.com profile] readingtheend's post explaining her vision.

First of all, the main thing for this week is that T is home after almost two weeks away. I think I've taken a couple of nine-day trips without him since we've been together, but it's not common, and it's rare for him to travel without me at all, much less for this long. So that makes me happy: both having him around again, and not having to hold down the fort by myself.

Secondly, this week's episode of Critical Role, which I was able to watch live, was huge, and amazing, and heart-breaking, and stand-up-and-cheer awesome. Vox Machina took on their final boss, and I almost could not have hoped for more. Cut for major spoilers. )

My family and I (re)watched Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's/Philosopher's Stone tonight. Here are some of my thoughts. All of them spoilery.


Do do do do do do do....

Next on my rewatch reaction post list: The Chamber of Secrets. 

In the meantime, what do you guys think characters apart from Ron and Harr would see in the Mirror of Erised? Particularly ones we know less about.
