My shoulder has been pretty bad the past two weeks or so. One day I was fine, the next I was back to painkillers. This is bullshit. I seem to be better/back to before now, which I'll test tomorrow by going to the pool, but this fucking sucked.

I wanted to do things over the past weeks but alas I kind of... Did Not. Due to spending lost of time lying in bed.

I managed so marginal amounts of art, including finishing the lineart of a thing I've been working on since November which was missing a handful of details/small elements of the composition.

For Chocolate Box I got Wish Fulfillment, a modern/mundane AU Phasma/Rey fic. I made three art gifts: Sabrina/Prudence, Sabrina as Little Red Riding Hood (both for same person -- my assigned recip -- and in the The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (TV) fandom) and Gwen + Peter ballet dancing (Into the Spider-verse).

Figured out that the novel I was writing was working towards two completely contradictory climaxes. The climax that happens first literally breaks the world. "Summon Cthulhu and a posse of Great Old Ones" breaks the world. Which is kind of a problem when the other climax happens after a roadtrip. Granted it is a weird roadtrip featuring a witch manipulating her vampiress lover into noncon apotheosis, but the two parts of the story just don't fucking mesh. Will probably have to do some surgery and split them into two stories. Somehow.

Part 1 of 2, complete
Word count (story only): 1094

:: Part of the Mercedes story set in the Polychrome Heroics universe, this story begins a few hours after “Breakfast for Dinner” (link to part one). Bennett finally reacts to the reality of Rachel’s arrest, and supportive people are there to help patch him back together. The focus is on positive elements, but it almost needs a warning for “rough road ahead.” ::

On to part two

It hit him as he was about to spit out toothpaste, in the middle of his bedtime preparations: Rachel was in jail, where she’d insinuated that he would land if he raised any kind of fuss. Where he belonged according to her, and only her interventions and mercies had shielded him from the vagaries of the legal system gone haywire because he’d been on his own at seventeen. Homeless, if not for her. Penniless, if not for her. In jail, if not for her.

Who had committed the crimes she listed so carefully? The thought made him shake.

I've only seen two episodes of Umbrella Academy, but...

Speculation and a couple of thoughts )

There's a lot of excitement about the show. Fingers crossed that I remain interested! I'm on the lookout for a new fandom.

This week in minor annoyances: Gender-based pricing for haircuts and services. No one should have to pay a different amount than someone else who has the exact same haircut based on their gender presentation when they walk into the salon. It's weird. Also creepy.

In related news, found a place that does not do this and now have an appointment to do Something Drastic that I have about a week to talk myself out of.

In completely unrelated news, Chapter 15 of the WIP is done and will be posted once beta'd and I am now working on Chapter 16. So, yay.

Hi, so, I normally do fic exchanges, so I know I went overboard on the fic part and underwhelmed on the podfic/art end. I do genuinely want any of the three, and I'm hoping my random rambling will help with all three.

I forgot I had these pages. Well here they are. I've been trying to work out a way to display all these pages that isn't tedious to code... I think I'm slowly getting onto something.

I don't know how Rock does anything with hooves either. My guess: it's like ponies.

I'm putting together a "Ganondorf Appreciation" zine.

I'm making it happen.

I told someone on Twitter I would do this as a joke, but then I realized that it's actually a very good idea, if I do say so myself.

A slightly longer version of this origin story is that someone I vaguely know through fandom (and honestly, I wish I knew her better, but I'm lazy about social media) thought it would be fun to organize a collaborative Ganon-centric art zine. We've been talking about it on and off for more than a year, and the project is probably going to come together this summer. HOWEVER, this person is a "real" artist who spearheaded an extremely successful Final Fantasy XV zine last year, and I'm not sure that my work is going to meet the standard she's looking for. Since I am a delicate fucking flower and still stupidly sensitive about fandom politics, I preemptively don't want there to be any danger of hurt feelings on my part, so I was like, "Well, I can just make my own zine then."

So then my hand slipped, and I already have a dozen pages. The zine is ridiculous and very silly, and I'm getting a really good vibe from it. I think it might be cool to surf this wave of positive energy and also include guest art, maybe?

Here’s a repostable to share!

Any of you feel like taking part in another Choose Your Own Malec with me? I have a lot of words that just aren’t coming together as a story; maybe if I had some external motivation, they might! 

Both To Keep Him Safe and Finding Love (and other cures for life’s misfortunes) started out as Choose Your Owns. I don’t plan on writing this one as fast as either of those two got put together, but I said that last time, so, I guess we’ll see how it goes (if it goes at all).

All I will say at this stage is it is an AU told from Alec’s POV that may or may not have a supernatural element (no, nothing to do with that show). I’d be starting it ‘properly’ mid-March because I have fic posting up until then, and I’d need to organise this a little. For instance, I don’t know if I want to post it on Tumblr like I have in the past because Tumblr. I’d need to figure that out, amongst other things first. That isn’t to say there might not be surveys before that but… we’ll see.

What do you think?

Tagging at this point because I remember you playing along in the past: if you don’t want to please don’t feel obligated! (and of course if you do want to, just give me a shout) @toughpaperround, @mashumaru, @dmsilvisart, @hellofavillain, @sgirl18, @worldofshea, @bappityrabbity, @diaboloframboise, @kindaresilient, @dumbchemist, @saadiestuff (for surveying purposes only, lovely, I know 😉)

I suppose I must admit defeat on halfamoon at this point. In fairness, it's because of the seizure, which I'm doing better from because yay I've adjusted to the Keppra. But dang I hate that I missed out on so much creative time this month. I do have 2 drawings to post still and I can squeeze out one or two more before the month is officially over. Right now I'm going to knock out a few drabbles for fluffbingo and Femslash February. I was also thinking of posting femslashy music for the last week of this month, if no one minds. =3

Until this morning I had never heard of the agency Zenith Media Contents, but after seeing these two videos, I'm curious about them.  Z-Boys and Z-Girls are both based on the same concept - obviously a marketing gimmick - which is crazy enough that it just might work.  Each group is made up of 7 members, each member from a different Asian country, all singing in English.  It sets them up for pan-Asian success, as well as for a possible breakout into the English-speaking world.  Unfortunately, it also kind of sets them up for failure in Korea.  There's a strong thread of "K-pop = Koreans" in Korean fandom, to the point that I've heard people say that Twice has too many foreign members[*].  Only time will tell, I suppose.  The songs are catchy enough, now all we can do is wait and see if they catch on.

[*]  Twice has 9 members:  5 Korean, 3 Japanese, 1 Taiwanese.

“What we refer to as the ‘alpha male’ hero, rugged, square-built with a strong jawline, has never held indomitable sway over feminine emotions. Sensitive types, moody aesthetes, and men exuding androgynous charm have featured equally prominently in the cultural landscape of desire. Lord Byron and Rudolph Valentino are obvious examples. But through history, any whiff of effeminacy in men who proved particularly attractive to women was likely to evoke censure from other males.”

(especially trans orthodox jews!)

i just found this site, which (admittedly, using older terminology) has a bunch of positive reinforcement for trans orthodox people! it covers a lot of questions about whether you’re allowed to be trans (yes) and get surgery (yes) and what gender a trans person is (whichever one you are, naturally). personally this is super cool to see as an orthodox nb person! 

please spread around for your trans jewish friends  ♡

Just skimmed over this article and bookmarked it for later! A super important read for ALL Jews, especially LGBT+ and Orthodox Jews. 
Many thanks to Rabbi Dr. Zev Farber for writing this.
