Finally took the pictures off my phone. X_X Managed to upload a trip photo album to facebook, but haven't started working on entries here yet. I will get to it! Sorry that this is taking even longer than than expected, but it's been a week. IT'S BEEN A WEEK. Have some icky stuff going on, but I really don't want to focus on that right now. So, FUN/SILLY DISTRACTION TIME (hopefully next distraction will be vacation stuff. I do honestly want to talk about it):

  • I didn't really get up to much this weekend. Just walking around the surrounding neighborhoods and such. On Sunday Katsushi showed me a cool park in Esaka that has a cute little library in it. It was so cool! Monday after my family Skype chat I wandered around. I went to Umeda by myself and later went to a big electronics shop that had a Ness amiibo(!!!). I don't know how much I like the amiibo thing, but I know I adore Ness and wanted one since the beginning, but I thought it had basically sold out in preorder. I wasn't going to give the amazon eshop resellers the satisfaction of paying more than retail price, so I had given up on the idea of having one. So happy to have found it!

  • This weekend we're going to go to a Yoshitaka Amano exhibition in Kobe! So glad I caught an article about it this week, as Sunday is the final day. SO STOKED. I love his art and can't wait to see what's on display. Also keeping my fingers crossed for a neat print of some FFVI art or something in the gift shop.

  • The Dragon Quest VIII 3DS remake came out yesterday. My preorder is in the mail and should be here tomorrow. CANNOT WAIT. I've been in DQ hype mode for a while. At first waiting for this game, but also getting stoked about the DQXI announcement that happened while I was on vacation. Both the 3DS and PS4 versions look really good.

  • I've been playing Fire Emblem if still. Finished Birthright over the holidays and am now going through Conquest. Just S-Ranked/gay married Zero last night. It was...alright? Playing through Birthright made me aware I'm not really into the game for the coupling and other side stuff so much (I really just like the battles), so maybe that killed some excitement for me. I dunno.

What are you currently reading?
Currently almost done with How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship, and Musical Theater by Marc Acito. This is one I've had on my shelf (and later ereader) for years and just never got around to. It was a slow starter, but once it got going it was really good. I've only got about a hundred ebook pages left (who knows how much that actually is, but it feels very close to the end) and it's all I can do to not just sit here and read the rest in one go, but I have to concentrate on my translating (deadline today!).

For people for whom its a selling point, both the main character and one of the supporting characters are bi. (I was expecting the main character to be gay, since the author is and it's about theater kids, so was kind of surprised.)

What did you recently finish reading?
I've been chugging along with this since whenever I last made a reading post, so I haven't finished anything.

What do you think you'll read next?
Not sure. There is a sequel, Attack of the Theater People, which I will want to read at some point, but probably not just yet. I downloaded all those Nancy Drew books the other day, so maybe one of those? Or possibly catch up on some comics, especially Lumberjanes, which I am a bunch of issues behind on. I had already been planning to catch up soon, but then I read this article (contains spoilers) and now I really, really want to get caught up. (And also maybe reread from the beginning.)

My mint plants need to be cut back, but I don't really want to dry the leaves, as I only like fresh mint.

Can I freeze mint leaves + stems. Is that an acceptable thing to do.

(I also do not have the energy for any cooking/distilling/whatever. I am for some reason at Peak Physical Shittiness this week and have barely made it out to the mailbox.)

A post sans Austen.

1. I'm sick. No shock, considering all my circumstances (Sister just bought me DayQuil in bulk because we were saying that we knew we were going to be sick soon), but it came at the same time as other bodily miseries, so I'm adopting a "if it's overwhelming right now, it can wait" mentality and blanket nesting. I did sleep very well last night for the first time in weeks, though. I'll take what I can get.

2. I've put up a couple new stories recently! I'm not going to do the post the way I usually do it because of point one, but in short:

-Hush (The Doggy Style Remix), Parks and Rec, Ann/April, for femmeremix. I wasn't going to take part in femmeremix because there wasn't much fandom familiarity there, but then they needed a pinch hitter for Parks and Rec, and I found a story where April and Ann had kinky bondage funtimes while roleplaying werewolves, and I thought well. I know my wheelhouse, let's put it that way.

-Top Flight, Taylor Swift/Model RPF, Taylor/Karlie. It was going to be for TSwift Tribadism Tropefest for the prompt "dragons", but I was very late, so I just put it up on my own. The story was both "I'm going to have fun with Taylor's circle" and "let me work out a lifetime of disagreements with the Pern universe", so I enjoyed writing it, definitely.

basically, &femmeslash; (I don't think I'll be able to do femslashex this year because of health/prior commitments, but I might try to treat, if that's a possibility.)

3. I'm waiting until the last episode of Hannibal airs, and then I'm watching the last two together. I probably don't need to talk about this one, but I've been thinking about it, so. (I can't believe it's almost over!)

I wrote a few drafts of a post I meant to make before leaving but of course never got the time to post.

So - I am back from 5 days in Prague, with [personal profile] tanndell (and also [tumblr.com profile] eatingclouds and [personal profile] schneefink).

I am UTTERLY EXHAUSTED (traveling at the tail end of the school summer holidays is a HORROR, I survived my flight home purely by staring at a screen fro 4 hours and having ear plugs when I couldn't stare at a screen) but I can honestly say this was the most perfect little vacation. The only tragedy of is it wasn't twice as long.

[personal profile] tanndell and I walked around what to me is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, drinking absinthe, eating bacon and steak and the highest quality dark chocolate (occasionally shaped like a penis). We watched a Bollywood film, cooked dinner with squid and prawns, saw beautiful castles, took a river cruise (to which we brought 2 bottles of our own wine), drank an uncountable number of cocktails at various locations. All in all, we never got up before 10am, we saw every single attraction we meant to see, made use of the mostly spectacular weather to walk around this wonderfully compact city... I truly do not know how we fit so much into so little time, but we did.

I think the sense of time management came mostly from the feeling of zero stress. Personally this was one of the most relaxed vacations I've ever been on.

And ugh it was just so good to see my friend again. And to meet new fangirls! And to talk hockey and porn and films and scifi and...

I need to sleep, because I am SO TIRED, but world, this was definitely a tiny slice of perfection.

1. So I watched Horatio Hornblower: The Fire Ships last night and ok. ok, I understand now. The appeal is entirely different from the books, but watching Hornblower wandering around being Tragically Stern is kind of irresistable, isn't it?

(I got the next drawer down with my random numbers this time, so I guess we're trying Sharpe next.)

2. I realized it had been awhile since I checked the ILL catalog for the trades I'm trying to follow so I did and then I went slightly wild and put seven of them on hold at once:

I reqested Vol. 2 of the GotG run with the lesbian space dragons, Vols. 2 and 4 of Kingyo Used books, Vol. 1 and 2 of the complete Gillen Journey into Mystery, Rocket Racoon, and Thor and Loki: The Tenth Realm

I got Thor and Loki: The Tenth Realm, Rocket Raccoon, 2 copies of Journey into Mystery Vol 1, two copies of Kingyo Used Books Vol. 4, and a collection of Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon tie-ins.

I.. guess that's a passing grade? you go, Maryland Intercounty ILL, you be you.

Anyway I fully expect to go slightly gaga over Kid Loki again soon, but meanwhile I am reading Kingyo Used books, which is still probably my favorite manga of all manga? It's just a bunch of semi-connected shorts that tell the stories of how various people have had their lives changed by reading old manga, and it's delightful, and I'm sad that four trades is all there is in English.

At lunch I read #23, A Man Ahead of His Time, which is about two old friends who run into each other on the street on one's 60th birthday, and then flashed back forty years. When one of them was a student radical, and was always cajoling the other one into going to riots with him, because "I always fight stronger when you're there", until the first one is like, no, I can't do this any more, violence is not my way, and they go their separate ways, but then over the decades as they grow older they keep meeting again and the one is still quiet and thoughtful and the other still wild and politically passionate and they always feel that connection again, and finally as old men he's like, "I figured it out: you fight too, but the way you fight is by getting me riled up to fight" and the other one just smiles but when he leaves he's still carrying the other one's favorite manga that he's had with him all this time, and I'm just like. you did this to me on purpose, Kingyo Used Books. you are hurting me on purpose.

3. The AU where Enjolras and Grantaire are both dark-horse candidates for the Democratic presidential nomination, and keep running into each other at ridiculous podunk events that everybody else had too much pride to attend, that I am writing as punishment every time I forget myself and start to be optimistic about US politics, just hit 5500 words.

Currently they are trapped together in a hot-air balloon. With a Republican.

4. So here is a thought process that happened to me awhile back:
  1. If I ever finish this original story I'm going to submit it under my initials.

  2. Not just because of gender bias! OK partly because of that. But also as a tribute to S.E. Hinton who has the same initials and is awesome.

  3. Not that I know anything about S.E. Hinton as a person except that she's supportive of people writing Ponyboy slash as long as they use condoms, because unsafe sex would be ooc

  4. actually I've never even read The Outsiders, but I remember when my sister's grade read it and all the girls were really into it, and even then I was like "Ponyboy? Really?"

  5. Ponyboy?Really?

  6. It's kind of neat how you can tell which books are still being assigned in high schools because there's always a sudden surge of slash for them at the beginning of the semester.

  7. Man, if I'd had access to slash fandom in high school, I would 100% have been writing The Scarlet Letter OT3

  8. Okay I was anyway, but I didn't have anyone to share it with, and if I'd been in slash fandom and known anybody else cared I'd've been writing negotiated bdsm cuckoldry preistkink ot3

  9. No really it's been fifteen years and basically the only thing I remember about that novel is that it would've totally worked, other than their various psychosexual issues they were all fairly reasonable people when Nathaniel-freaking-Hawthorne wasn't trying to force them along rails into a contrived tragedy.

  10. Also, really Hawthorne? Really?

  11. Can teachers these days still get away with teaching that book without talking about kink?

  12. No but! It would totally work! Like this, see:

Wow, I have barely updated since I started my new job. Turns out it's quite hard to get back into the swing of 9-5 after being out of work for two months, who knew.

I have managed to watch some of the great vids being posted recently though, so here have some recs.

MCU:
Zero by [personal profile] sweetestdrain (Natasha)
This is a brilliant look at Natasha over all the films so far, covering her central role in the story and how she's the one who assembled the Avengers.

1941 by [personal profile] rhoboat (Peggy)
Great song choice, great editing, great series overview. Peggy! \o/

I Lived by [personal profile] flummery (Steve/Peggy)
*ugly crying* their love is so tragic. sob. But really this is actually wonderfully optimistic in tone, because both of them are living the heck out of their lives even though they're apart. The bittersweet tinge is a punch in the gut though.

Korra, Sense8, Doctor Who, Mad Max: Fury Road

Landsailor by [personal profile] skygiants (Legend of Korra, Jinora)
A really beautiful overview of Jinora's arc and all the themes therein.

Breathe Me by [personal profile] butterfly (Sense8, ensemble)
Ahhhh my heart. I love this cluster so muuch, beloved darlings.

Survivor by [personal profile] odessie (Doctor Who, multi era)
This is the BEST. It is what my heart is made of. Companions having wonderful post-Doctor lives and being friends and being amazing. It's beautifully structured, every time a new character was introduced I shrieked a little bit.

Na Na Na by [personal profile] violace (Mad Max: Fury Road)
THIS IS SO AWESOME. Inspired song choice and a fantastic whirlwind ride through this film. I have watched it many times and I love it.

---

Today we got sent the draft script for our ceremony from the registrar, and it's my hen night this weekend, and our flat is covered in RSVP cards and robots and the constituent parts of centrepieces, all of which leads me to conclude that time has gone past inordinately quickly and I am in fact marrying [personal profile] happydork in two and a bit weeks.

Which is tremendously exciting, and also a little bit surreal. But then I sneak a peek at our wedding rings, or remember awesome little things we have planned for the day, and actually it's all totally great.

Also, this is late notice, but we haven't actually started putting together the decorations yet, and if you would like to contribute, you can decorate one of these awesome robots and send it to us, digitally or physically. If we have it on Friday 11th it'll go up in the hall, and if we have it this weekend it might also be included in something else we're planning. <3

Two links:

1. Raising a Mets fan, a blog post by Jennifer Meer.

The money quote:
There are many things I treasure about loving and raising a Mets fan. I love their distinctly curmudgeonly outlook on life tinged with a reluctant yet persistent belief in what's possible. I love their under doggedness. Being a Mets fan (and similarly loving them) means you know all too well that many times the story does not end the way you want. But it doesn't change your ability to believe in the happy ending, no matter how much you hide that belief.

Six and a half games up on the Nats at the end of August! And then of course reality sets in. #the existential futility of being a mets fan

2. The Legend of Korra: Deliberately Deconstructed by [personal profile] beccatoria, which is a fascinating look at all four seasons of LoK:
When The Legend of Korra finished, late last year, I was left with the strange sense that I had watched a show completely, and deliberately, dismantle itself. Much was made of that final iconic shot of Korra and Asami leaving for the Spirit World, in what was, honestly, the queerest “platonic” moment I've seen on television since Xena managed to stage a PG-rated dance-orgy. It was (to its credit) both obvious and unavoidable, but it was also the capstone to a much wider-ranging set of choices designed to destabilise accepted narratives. This would be worthy of exploration under any circumstance, but I feel it is particularly fascinating given how much of it appears to be in direct reaction to the events of Book One: Air. While I've seen countless shows begin with promise, only to fall foul of hegemonic expectations, I'm not sure I've ever seen one begin carelessly and then spend three seasons systematically and critically dismantling its initial premise.

And here is some excellent meta about how bending has changed between AtLA and LoK, and also across the seasons of LoK, and how that illustrated story and character development: Jings and Other Things: How Combat Informs Character, Cultural Progress, and Vice Versa by [tumblr.com profile] progmanx (note: the post is heavy on gifs).

(okay, it's actually four links, but on two subjects. no really, I can count.)

You start to realize that yeah, this actually is it, and although you can still try enough new things to keep anyone busy for two lifetimes, you’re pretty much stuck with a basic context. There are skills, experiences, and material things you will almost certainly never have, period. It’s a challenge for all of us to understand that accepting this fact of life does not necessarily mean cutting off options or giving up dreams, but simply — as in the proverbial story about the creation of the David — chipping away all that is not you. But for a fat person, it can be even harder, because so many fucking sources encourage us to believe that inside every one of us is “a thin person waiting to get out” — and that thin person is SO MUCH COOLER."

I was sold — and I’ve written email and internet ever since, with the security of knowing that, if my choices were ever questioned, I could calmly reply “You see, it’s because I follow the Wired style guide.” (No one has ever questioned me on these choices. It seems that teenage!Gretchen slightly overestimated the number of duels that adults were expected to fight on matters of punctuation.) […] Oddly, for an internet style guide, Wired Style isn’t available anywhere online. […] So I bought myself a used paper copy, second edition, five dollars, and I finally read it cover to cover.

[personal profile] tyger
Work was - well, we spent about two hours on the phone to IT between us, so that wasn't the funnest thing ever, but at least I got a bunch of cleaning done on my desk, and then some knitting when I had nothing else to do within arm-reach? And even though it took super long, things got FIXED (probably), so that's super great. Yes. :3

Other than that I spent the evening dicking around with my steam account thanks to [personal profile] cypher's recent post. Also poking a few games there. I really need to a) import all the games I have on humblebundle to Steam so I can actually, you know, SEE THEM and maybe play them sometime, and b) play more games. Urgh, I need more not-working time, most of mine's eaten by clickypets stuff. Which, I love clickypets, but I do honestly enjoy gaming so IDK. =/ Wanna keep doing art! But GAMES! But ART! Urgh. *sighs* I am terribad at time management, I think.

If I want to get into actual PC gaming though I should probably buy a console-style controller. I have zero muscle memory for keyboards, and more importantly zero instincts. Like, the reason I know space is usually jump is one of my games hasn't got a jump button but there's an achievement for *trying* to jump by hitting space. Yeaaaaaaaah. >>;;;

Also also I really, really need to import more games so that Steam's games recs actually work. At the moment it thinks I just play casual clicky games, which, uh.... *looks at non-computer games piles* Noooooot so much.

1. Carla arrived safely in Wisconsin.

2. I was worried that after staying up all night and taking her to the airport, I'd have trouble getting to sleep, but I was able to fall asleep right away and slept all morning.

3. I didn't get as much translating done today as I'd hoped, because I looked at the remaining page of blurbs and saw they were much shorter than the ones I'd been doing on the previous page and then spent the day mostly dicking around on the internet. *sigh* But I did get about a third of it done, and the last two-thirds will be easy enough to finish tomorrow. I just need to buckle down and do it. (And I can't put it off anymore because the deadline is tomorrow.)

4. One of my coworkers was talking the other day about how he's trying not to do any food shopping and just concentrate on eating what's in the fridge/freezer/cupboard, and I really need to do that myself, too, so I think these three weeks while Carla is gone will be a good opportunity to get some stuff cleared out! Today I cooked for both lunch and dinner, and both meals were made using stuff that had been in the cupboard for ages, so I feel good about that.
umadoshi: (Feed Russian cover)
[personal profile] umadoshi
--I just made one of my occasional attempts to figure out if Blackout is out in Russian yet, or if it has a release date. I found no signs of it, but since I don't speak a word of Russian, my technique is basically to pull up the Russian Deadline cover on Amazon.com and do an image search for it, then click links that look like they could be Goodreads-esque review sites, then click the author name to see what comes up. Not the most effective approach, I know, but it's what I've got.

I hope Blackout does come out in Russian eventually--I want to complete my set! (The story here, for those who don't know, is that I love the Russian cover for Feed--see icon--so I bought a copy a while back, and while I actively dislike the Russian cover for Deadline [largely because Shaun looks like a Terminator! I like the background image of Georgia a LOT], I bought it when I found it at a reasonable price because if the Blackout cover is lovely, I'll want a full set.)

--Luck is not with us re: the peaches we picked over the weekend and promptly tucked into paper bags. They're still hard, except for a few that have gone off. :/ Oh, well. We knew it was a risk, picking them when they were so hard. (Hazards of picking on a Sunday afternoon? The trees were weighed down with fruit, all of it hard, and the ground below the trees was covered in downed peaches rotting into the earth. I suspect all of the good fruit had been picked earlier in the weekend.) And we got rather a lot of blueberries out of the venture, plus a quart of yellow plums and a few pears (still [hopefully] ripening).

Happily, we continued to do well with market peaches. I hope there are more when [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose goes this weekend.

--It's my sister and her husband's twentieth wedding anniversary this month. O_O Somehow this is a bit alarming even though my niece is starting her second year of university next month and my nephew is starting his first year (AFAIK, at least; the last actual info I had was that he was still looking at schools). So you'd think I'd be used to all these milestones (all of them colored by my brother-in-law being only six months older than me), but no.

--I'm between books and not sure what to start reading next, although while I figure it out I can keep picking away at the mermaid anthology I've been slowly working through and/or the graphic novels I have from the library (three left from the pile I checked out a couple weeks ago). Several books I'm looking forward to just arrived in the mail, but Half Wild is in transit from the library (I'm reading it that way so I don't have to decide whether to buy it in hardback--I have Half Bad in paperback--or wait for the paperback; either way, if I wind up buying the full trilogy, it's yet another mismatched set. Some days I think if I ever switch primarily to ebooks, that will be the deciding factor. I'm SO SICK of mismatched sets). And I want to reread The Winter Long before A Red-Rose Chain comes out on September 1...

--[dreamwidth.org profile] seangaffney arrives tomorrow for his visit, so my time online may be more sporadic than usual this weekend. Or it may not. Our sleep cycles are wildly different, so there'll probably be a few hours each day that I'm asleep while he's up, and vice versa. (Ginny's going to go crash with Kas for the weekend.)

--And now I'm tired and it's past 1 AM, but I'm apparently still hoping to scrape together some wordcount. The odds aren't great, especially since I know I need to get a fair bit of rewriting done tomorrow before I go meet Gaffney downtown; I have both a rewrite (about halfway done) and a lettering check (not started) due on Monday. The lettering check is for Lucifer and the Biscuit Hammer, though, and as I've probably said before, going over the lettered pages when [livejournal.com profile] lyschan is the series letterer is about as good as it gets. *^^* (Usually about half of my notes on things she works on are me changing my mind about wording, rather than a comment on the lettering itself.)
