Thank fuck. I was so anxious for you all. Best news ever to wake up to. You are all champions. You matter. Your hard work and activism mattered. You are motherfucking superheroes. I love you all. Now hug and hydrate and hopefully get some sleep. All the best.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

cheer me up?

I had the predictable depressive crash after disrupted sleep (Joe had to go out to work last night from 11:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.--I fell asleep before he got home, but only managed to go to bed around 2 a.m., which is not optimal either).

Send cute kitten pics/silly gamer stories?

Alternately, leave me a silliness prompt and I might write you a tiny!silly!crackficlet?

Very random post, but.

A few weeks ago we watched the pilot for the new The Tick TV series.

As there were sadly no more episodes, we then watched The Seventh Seal.

Somehow I felt this summed us up rather well.

And today I remembered to buy more Earl Grey (we had run out!!) but forgot toilet paper.

So if you wonder what we are like - well, this post is it. Very eclectic viewing tastes and an addiction to (good) tea. :)

Forgot to mention that I have this whole fic written & finished, which is nice. :)

On AO3 this is tagged with 'Aggressive Sarcasm' and 'Mutual Antagonism'. In other words: I had a lot of fun writing this.

Summary: How do you save people that don't want to be saved?

For info etc, please check out The Prologue.

Note: Gallifreyan will be indicated by the use of « and » rather than "". It seemed the simplest solution.

Hereby recommended:

Chance Encounters (AO3 link) by [profile] luckweaver.

Summary: The first step in the plan was to lie low for a little, and stay out of sight. Of course, trouble had a way of finding Roda...

Notes: This is a series of short stories, probably 3 chapters for each, with minor details about what Roda gets up to immediately following the events of 'The Death and Life of Rodageitmososa'. These take place during Roda's 8th regeneration.

6 chapters posted. Some great guest stars. Go. Enjoy. :)

"All the Colors You Thought Were Kings" by Arkady Martine [Shimmer]. Heart-stoppingly gorgeous space opera, stars as sharp as knives. I wish I wrote half so well.

This was exactly what I needed to read tonight.

Tomorrow there’ll be ceremonies and presentations, and then your nanite horde will be calibrated for shipside on live broadcast for the entire Fleet to see – another cohort of kids full up with starshine micromechanics, bound to service and obedience, gone off into the stars. You’ve been dreaming about it since you could read. You want it so much you’ve spent the last three months feeling like your chest is going to burn out from longing.

The night after tomorrow, though. You can’t let yourself dream about that.

Under the drape of your overjacket, snugged up to your spine like you’re its best lovecrush, are the disassembled pieces of a sniper rifle. Nestled right at the small of your back is the lead-shielded explosive heart of an electromagnetic pulse bomb.

1) The Road Home by Michael Thomas Ford stopped soon after it got interesting. Read more... )

2) The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst is literary fiction rather than a romance, even though the story revolves around a gay man's relationships. For various reasons it seemed to me like a cross between Gatsby and Brideshead Revisited. Read more... )

3) Speaking of books, I found this discussion about a recent trend in thrillers marketed to women something I was ambivalent about. Read more... )

4) HT to Petzi for this news: Chevrolet is discontinuing the Chevy Impala. Looks like it will be departing at the same time as Supernatural is.

5) HT to Paula for this article about the 100 greatest movie props. Although it's a reminder to me that I'm not a big movie watcher, I liked the idea of reviewing symbols. Also, Star Wars fans may be interested to read about the creation of light sabers.Read more... )

The Machineries of Tarot

For your amusement, hexarchate Tarot readings (coding and spreads by [personal profile] telophase, card meanings by me):
No art right now, just meanings. The 78-card jeng-zai deck corresponds to the traditional Tarot but is specifically a hexarchate Tarot circa Kel Cheris' era. As such, upright sixes are all positive while upright sevens are negative, and the fours are lucky/unlucky.

This site is for entertainment purposes only: neither guarantees nor apologies are given for the accuracy or inaccuracy of any reading you may receive, and no responsibility is taken for any calendrical rot that may ensue. Hopefully you do not live in the hexarchate.
