It’s not quite a kaiju story… but it involves Aliens, at least? According to the address on this, I submitted it at over five years ago, at my last apartment.

The Center was slow today; in three hours, Amy hadn’t seen more than half a dozen refugees pass her desk. Maybe – though there was faint hope of it – the war was finally winding down?

"I do not know what this is."

Winter frowned at the glass rose that had appeared in his office mail cube; behind him, Latricia laughed.

"It's a rose. It's not going to bite you."

Smokey and I are throwing ourselves around in attitudes, as it’s very hot (for Britain) and very humid. I’m all miserable and sweaty, and I’m sure I can say the same for Smokey but she only sweats through her paws. She has quite sweaty paws, though, and was once found to be allergic to a specific type of kitty litter for that reason.

In other news, I’ve done the first pass of ripping my DVDs to soft copy. I’m left with a few irritations – some of the seasons of Criminal Minds didn’t rip properly and I’ll have to rip them again, this time into MKV files. Plus the titles got somehow mixed up (it was obviously my fault) on the Basil Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films, and I’m going to have to go through them patiently and make sure the right title is attached to each film. But it is mostly done.

I’m still following what’s coming out about the Grenfell Tower fire – the worst case of a fire since WW2, I think, and was totally avoidable if Kensington and Chelsea had just listened to the people who lived there and actually spent money on the place where it was needed. ‘Not political’ indeed! Ptui!

Hi all. It's been ages since I posted and if I put it off much longer it's going to turn into one of those situations where I keep procrastinating and end up not posting for months, so.

Anyway, I went to the Pittsburgh area recently to see my sister and to go see U2. It was a terrific experience. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to go because of my health, but because it was right before a chemo treatment I was able to make it, even though I had to go to a hospital there to get bloodwork done, bah.

What follows are a bunch of pictures: of my sister's gorgeous farmhouse that was built in 1875, of her new small house that she and her husband built while they're restoring the old farmhouse, of Pittsburgh and the show, and a couple of random others.

They shared a look among them. Cataleb stepped forward to speak when nobody else did. “Kayay got angry and stormed off. I’m sure she’ll be back when nobody goes after her.”

“Of course. Well, welcome to Force and Force-fields, a class you will be taking every year of your education here, or until you can hold off a tsunami with nothing but your mind and your collar. And you may very well need to, so I’d suggest you pay attention. Now. I am Professor Smiff. I prefer neutral or feminine pronouns when socializing, and neutral pronouns when working. The collar has no gender; the magic has no gender; we have no gender, just as that tsunami has no gender. Now. We’re going to start with very basic exercises and move on. Please join with a partner and face each other, just far enough apart that your arms stretched in front of you do not touch.”

Desmond looked around and quickly moved towards Jefshan, but Wesley had beaten him to it, which left him facing Talia.

Art Community on DW?

I've been wanting to join a Fan-Artists community for quite some time, but haven't come across what I'm seeking. What I want is a place where fan-artists (of traditional media) can challenge and motivate each other, a place for collaborating and posting, for getting feedback and advice.

On LJ, I loved being part of [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot, a community for traditional artists in the Merlin fandom. I especially always enjoyed their collaborative projects, eg. Tarot cards, Zodiac signs, Celtic animals.

I was wondering if there's anything like that out there on DW, fandom-specific or multi-fandom? And if not, would any other fan-artists be interesting in using such a comm?

Anyone wanna help me get something like that started?

After discussing it with my Patreon patrons, I've decided that any Patreon story written as a continuation of an extant public story will be made available for general consumption after three months. Here's the first two.





This story includes portions originally posted http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/665445.html and http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/697268.html to make a complete story.

There was something amiss with Winter’s sister.

With the oldest of Winter’s sisters and the most steady, the most easy-going, the least likely to have things go amiss.

This is written to Clare K. R. Miller 's request for More Daxton & Esha.
~~
Daxton was captive again, struggling not to take it in ill grace. This time, it seemed unlikely that Esha could rescue him.

It was a captivity far more posh and sometimes far less comfortable than his time in the Red Queen’s dungeons.

This is a portion of a story first posted in 2007. A lot of this story became the background for Addergoole & Fae Apoc, but many of the details are different.
🚬

“Again…” Caecelia murmured, distressed, and then, triumphant, “South!”

Her finger landed on the map, pointing to the tail end of a long gorge, a place still virtually inaccessible by humans. Not that they wouldn’t try, called by the siren call of the monsters, try and die in droves if the monsters were note stopped.

I am working on the Chapbook~
For the $15/month “Mailbox” tier! I am super excited about this, guys!!

Take a Peek!



Two posts of bisexual characters being people, talking about stereotypes of bisexuality with other people.

"Do you miss being with a girl?" Niki curled up against Shiva's side, nuzzling sleepily at her shoulder. He'd been peaceful, quiet lately, and today he couldn't keep his hands off her.

MARKED - 9.1

Chason was shaking his head, and he had gotten half to his feet. “You guys don’t know her at all. I don’t know how you can think that she’d be in any way involved with something like hurting another student! I mean, really.”

“Chason-” Nilien began.

Lorque talked right over her. “Just listen for a minute, okay? When Nilien went out to the woods, she had a tracking spell on her that she knew was there. She thought maybe she could - find out more about who was tracking her. But then Ember saw someone, and the tree fell almost on top of her!”

Interlude: Shahin 1
by Lyn Thorne-Alder


“It looks like she’s succeeding.”  Shahin looked around the room.  They’d gathered in the Dining Hall, because nobody’s suite was large enough for this, and, because, as Kailani said, “we have nothing to hide, and we should not pretend that we do.  We’re not sneaking around, and nobody would trust the cy’Regine if we were.”

Conrad was good for Kailani, Shahin thought.  He was certainly encouraging her to be more socially aware.

From where I'm standing, weather is being deceptively pleasant. Sun is shining, birds are singing. Gorgeous day on the island.

From another perspective though:



AHHHHHHHH. So this was taken an hour or two ago. Guess what's at our doorstep... /o\
