[community profile] yurionicefans  is a thing! It makes me feel slightly guilty that I haven't finished posting all my YOI recs.

Basically I read 2 weeks worth of fic back in February and then got derailed from reading more in March so I have all these recs from that time period and haven't read much more than that. I've also lost track of a bunch of WIPs that I need to catch up on. Someday, right?

I still adore this show.

*

One reason I got derailed from YOI was on the same trip, I was reading the Raven Cycle books, so I got sucked into fic for that (there's so not enough fic for the Raven Cycle) and was obsessively refreshing that fandom's fic pages. I still intend to do a book review of the last two books which I quite enjoyed, but well. I don't know if that's going to happen at this point.

I wish there were more fic to wallow in.

*

Watching Black Sails last week sent me into all the available fic over the weekend, and I rediscovered that I still have a fundamental difference with what I want to read and what people want to write about. I'm not into Flint/Silver so much, and instead want all the Silver/Madi without it, and also Billy Bones doesn't meet his dastardly end because I kind of have a Tom Hopper thing. I will however read all the James/Thomas and James/Thomas/Miranda and everything with Thomas meeting Silver because that is amazing, so thank you fandom for delivering. I feel like I ought to make a couple recs posts for this to. Maybe I'll make May a reccing month.

I think... I'm going to rewatch the whole series. This show is so good and right now it's the one eating my brain.

*

I kind of have all these little fic ideas for all three of these fandoms... but I'm pretty sure zero to none will get written. I'm so bad at impulsive short fic, she says, eyeing her Scrivner projects full of fragment from a dozen fandoms.



here we go.

//NAME: rhienna

//AGE:
37.75.

//INTERESTS & HOBBIES:
i'm working on an illustrated tarot deck, maybe two books, a bunch of articles (that, let's be real, will probably end up being tinyletters, dreamwidth posts, or drunken arguments on my back porch), doodles for ideas, next year's halloween costume, a curated photo blog, learning video software so i can either get into short films or motion design. i just took a handlettering class and loved it. additional interests that are less about what i make and more about what i consume/like: musicals, music, bike riding, wine tasting, film, pop culture, being near bodies of water, being very very nostalgic (why else would i be here?), travel, volunteerism, and a bunch of other stuff i'm spacing on. i work in tech, so i spend a lot of time thinking about our digital legacy (and terms like "digital nomads" or "digital natives").

//LOOKING FOR:
people who post and read/comment, preference to folks close to my age who aren't basic and are feminists. love travelers, professionals, queers, and creative folks.

//ANYTHING ELSE?:
ten years of journal entries are imported via LJ here for my own personal record, but i am primarily looking to make new habits and continue writing. a clean slate. i loved making online friends: maintaining journals and penpals and personas defined me from the 90s on, and i guess i haven't completely outgrown it. these days i'm rusty and sometimes Too Busy to reliably post, but i believe that can/will change when i have a community (here) to return to.

wendelah1: Fox Mulder reading (reading is fundamental)
[personal profile] wendelah1
In most of the fandoms where I've actively participated, my interests are a bit...off center. For example, I don't ship pairings except in rare cases. I don't very often enjoy reading or looking at explicit material but I'm not exactly a gen person. This means I have to look a little harder to find fanworks I enjoy (or create them myself...). But every now and again, I find creators who are my perfect match. It's almost as though they are seeing the world through my eyes: they view the characters just the way I do, their head canons are my head canons. I still remember vividly the excitement I felt the first time that it happened. It was magical.

Day 11
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


I love many fanfic writers but upon careful refection, I don't see how I can choose anyone but Kel. Read more... )

Happy reading.

I've been juggling a lot of real-life problems that have eaten into my writing hours, which means that I haven't had a chance to individually post reading copies to every prompter. I sincerely apologize for the lapse. As readers can see, however, I have clearly offered more than one “What happens next?” story in both the 1878 events (Lucy Prettyeagle) and in the current story events at the boarding house. I've also done my best to ensure that the index is accurate, and that there are links within each story segment as needed.

There was one amazing donor, for $20, which was MUCH appreciated! [personal profile] mama_kestrel is amazing! The Law of Threefold Return should mean cubed instead of linear progression!

Now, with only a week left in the month, I'm determined to write more stories for “Voices of the Engines,” which will mean finishing off the Maldives story arc in Polychrome Heroics at the beginning of May, if Fate and real life obligations are willing.

beatrice_otter: Sam and Teal'c (Sam and Teal'c)
[personal profile] beatrice_otter
I'm like halfway done with my Stargate Reverse Bang fic (due in a week, omg I am so panicking), and I just realized I have a MAJOR CANON PROBLEM.  There was no time when a) Teal'c had a prim'ta, b) the SGC had reliable access to their own interstellar ships, and c) Daniel Jackson was on the team.  And for the plot to work as it is designed, I sort of need all three?  Like, Daniel and Teal'c are stranded for a while (longer than Teal'c would reasonably have tretonin supplies for) and the SGC needs to be able to come find them.

I suppose I could set it in, like, season 5 and have the SGC get ahold of Bra'tac?  He is more reliable than the Tok'ra, at any rate.

This is what I get for trying to write a story for a show I once knew encyclopedically but haven't watched in a while.

So, on a whim I decided...

The cutest news you will read all day: Chris Evans will appear on British TV next month to read a bedtime story designed to help kids cope when they feel overwhelmed by their feelings. It is amazing to me how Evans continues to understand and represent the character of Steve Rogers so many times better than anyone currently employed by Marvel Comics.

Hello!

We started [community profile] yurionicefans  a little more than a week ago. At the time, we had no idea if there was any interest in a yoi comm on dw. We can't believe we already have 35+ members and that's without advertising our comm at all! We're hoping to continue to grow in the coming weeks, but please bear with us while we get things organized.  We want this community to be as interactive as possible, so all member input is welcomed.  If you have a moment, please respond to the poll below. It's only 3 questions.  

Unfortunately, dw doesn't allow communities to post polls, so the poll is hosted on our mirror livejournal comm [livejournal.com profile] yurionicefans . You can find the poll here. Click on the poll number to fill it out. If you don't have an open id or no longer want anything to do with LJ and Russian servers, then here's a link to the same poll on surveymonkey where no login is needed. 

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment on this post.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our poll.


Your very excited Mods,

Still sick. This is so boring. A couple of writing-related things:

1. My poem "The Firebird's Revenge" is now available in the latest issue of The Cascadia Subduction Zone. I wrote it last April for Rose Lemberg. It was an angry poem then. It's even more applicable now.

2. My short story "And All Our Salt-Bottled Hearts" has been reviewed along with the rest of Dreams from the Witch House (ed. Lynne Jamneck, 2016) in a recent episode of Steve Rosenstein and Rodney Turner's Microphones of Madness. I am afraid that I did not really work out Punnett squares for my ideas of Innsmouth genetics—my major departure from canon was in treating them as genetics at all when Lovecraft's universe plays by the supernatural one-drop rule—but I am delighted by the podcast's conclusion that there is real cosmic horror in the characters' awareness of the world they cannot live in, because I thought so, but then I've always wanted gills. The comparison to Ruthanna Emrys' "The Litany of Earth" is fair; I held off on reading that particular story until I had finished my own, but I am in no way going to disclaim the tons of other neo-Lovecraftian influence and I am not surprised that the genocide aspects of "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" leap out at Jewish readers (I am aware that the opening lines about "the secrecy surrounding the disposal of the prisoners . . . vague statements about disease and concentration camps, and later about dispersal in various naval and military prisons" would not have carried quite the same historical weight when Lovecraft was writing in 1931 as they would acquire in hindsight of the next decade and a half, but I didn't read the story in 1931 or even 1936 and so here we are). Honestly, I wish I could get this story reprinted as an independent pamphlet or something just so I could use "Melancholy" as a blurb.

3. I read a story I really enjoyed—Jenn Grunigen's "Figs, Detached"—and saw afterward that I was name-checked in the Author Spotlight. Which was just a bonus.

I wish I did not feel so terrible. I don't see what the harm would be.

The following poems from the April 18, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl are currently available. Poems may be sponsored via PayPal -- there's a permanent donation button on my LiveJournal profile page -- or you can write to me and discuss other methods.

There are still verses left in the linkback poems "Testing the Metal," "Dangerous Refuges," "The Marble and the Sculptor," "Picking Up the Litter," "The Golden Peaches of Peace," "Leaves Upon the Water," and "The Quick Brown Fox." Linking to this page will reveal new verses in whichever linkback poem you request.



"Lead Us in Peace"
Well, I started with Ladino, but then they went haring off into Ghardaia sign language. Did you know Jews had their own sign languages? I hadn't come across those until I stumbled over them just now. Anyhow, Menachem and Yossele are exploring that as well as Ladino with some new friends. "Lead Us in Peace" is written in free verse.

"Like Oil to a Lamp"
A DW prompt inspired "Like Oil to a Lamp," which is written in parallel tercets. It lists a whole bunch of famous Jewish foods.
36 lines, Buy It Now = $15

"Pesach Sameach"
A couple of prompts contributed to the free-verse poem "Pesach Sameach." During the Passover celebration, Yossele shares a story about slavery.

In the month of Nissan,
the time of Pesach drew near.

Menachem turned their route
toward the prosperous town where
his old master kept a smithy, so that
he could celebrate the holiday with friends
.


"The Work of Your Hands"
This inspired the free-verse poem "The Work of Your Hands." Menachem attempts to study the creation of golems.
