I finished writing a full fledged fanfic for the first time in... forever (2008? Around that. I wrote a few very short pieces in between but very slap dash). It's for a minor fandom and a secondary cast of character, so unsurprisingly it didn't exactly draw a lot of attention. I don't a lot of people who read this (amongst the people who still read their lj/dw flist in the first place) are familiar with it, but for my own piece of mind, I like posting it here as well:

Summary: I trust you remember that when you and your sister were young, it was I, and not Tibarn, who watched over you?

The shift to Ao3 does mean a lot less comments, I hadn't quite realised how disheartening that (I mostly leave kudos over comments when I read fics myself). Not that I dislike kudos - I'm always happy receiving them ^^ - but when you have the expectation of a newly posted fic, it does feel a bit... lacking in interaction, I guess. It doesn't help that in the first place the shift to tumblr means much less in-depth fannish interaction. *sighs* Such in the stuff.

So yeah, I haven't written on DW/LJ myself in forever. I always want to post reviews of books I'm reading or such, but I can't summon the motivation for it. Fandom wise, obviously I'm still very much in the fire emblem fandom (mostly Tellius, but also Jugdral remains on my mind. I'm liking the Elibe games but not so much in a fannish way) and I've actually been reading a whole lot of final fantasy 7 fanfics (as my pinboard can attest). Not reading much comics anymore (I vaguely follow and want to get back in it, but also lack the motivation for it) and haven't felt like reading MCU fanfics lately either. Can't say I'm much excited for Age of Apocalypse either given how disappointing i found DoFP.
musesfool: starbuck choking on a stogie and winning at cards (for the win)
[personal profile] musesfool
I typed this up for L., who is hanging out with her post-hip-surgery parent and looking for entertainment, so I figured I'd post here so I can always find it if necessary.

How to play May I* (the H. family rules**):

The hands:

1. 2 sets
2. 1 set, 1 sequence
3. 2 sequences
4. 3 sets
5. 2 sets, 1 sequence (12 cards)
6. 1 set, 2 sequences (12 cards)
7. 3 sequences, no discard (i.e., all the cards in your hand must fit into a sequence somewhere, you cannot throw anything on the discard pile; when someone does this, it ends the game) (12 cards)

A set is three (or more) of a kind; a sequence is a straight flush in poker terms - at least four cards in numerical order of the same suit. You cannot save two sequences of the same suit in the same hand. You cannot turn the corner (i.e., queen, king, ace, deuce) but you can use the ace as a high card (jack, queen, king, ace) or a low card (ace, two, three, four). You can also have more than four cards in a sequence, but you need at least four, and they always need to be in order and of the same suit.

You deal 10 cards for the first 4 hands, then 12 cards for the last three. A player can say May I for the newest card on the discard pile; if someone ahead of them wants the card, that person can say no, but if they do, they must take it themselves, plus the penalty card if it's not their turn. Otherwise, they have to let the person who asked take it (plus a penalty card). (You don't have to take a penalty card to pick the top card from the discard pile if it's your turn - that's just your regular pick-up. Also, if a card has been May-I'd, the card beneath it on the discard pile is not active - no one can May I for what was beneath it.)

Once you've laid your sets/sequences on the table, you can't May I anymore, and unless it's your turn, you can't stop someone else (e.g., if someone threw out something you could pick up and put on one of your sequences or sets, you can do that, but if the card is just random, you shouldn't say no). Once you've laid your cards down, you can add appropriate cards from your hand to other people's sets/sequences, or your own, during your turn. This is the way you get rid of extra cards in your hand.

The goal in each hand is to get rid of your cards as quickly as possible after you've laid down your sets/sequences, or to be caught with the fewest amount of points possible when someone else goes out. Number cards are all worth 5 points except for the 10. Tens and face cards are worth ten points. Aces are worth 15 points, and jokers are worth 25 points.

We always played with at least two decks, and left all jokers in, as they make the game more exciting. Jokers in straights can be replaced by the correct card, with the joker then being used elsewhere by the person who played the correct card, but that can only happen once you've put your cards down, and also they have to be played on that turn - you can't keep it in your hand for later (I can't imagine why you'd want to - that's 25 points!) You can add a third deck in the later hands if necessary.

You count up the cards in everybody's hands at the end of each hand and add them up to keep score. The one with the lowest score at the end wins.

You can also play this with two people, but the May I aspect is absent except for the first turn of every hand. Hours of fun for the whole family.

*It's a variation on some version of rummy, the formal name of which google tells me is contract rummy.

**My father's family also played a version but it was more restrictive and also included betting [which I never understood], but I never played that way - that was strictly for their monthly poker nights.

musesfool: Korra/Asami (how to make two lovers of friends)
[personal profile] musesfool
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 [ profile] progmanx (note: the post is heavy on gifs).

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

Before I go and lose it again, The TF2 prompt generator.

Much like the old Hetalia kink generator, which sadly has gone offline. I spent many an hour just clicking for random prompts. I even have a whole text file full of prompts from back then.

There really should be more of these little things.

musesfool: a sword (honour demands it)
[personal profile] musesfool
I've never been a big fan of men's cologne, mostly because so many of them use too damn much of it, but lately there are two that are absolutely revolting to me. One smells like plastic burning and it makes my sinuses ache, and the other smells like someone pissed themselves and then sat in it for a while. WTF? I think it must be my nose because why would anyone choose to smell like that? But it's definitely new since last autumn, which is when I first noticed, so I don't know if something got switched on somewhere in my brain, or if these are new terrible colognes that are somehow popular.

Anyway, if you are in any way in a position in some man's life to make gentle suggestions about his cologne, advise them to put on even less than they think is the least amount necessary. My sinuses will thank you.


What I'm reading Wednesday:

What I've just finished
The Mermaid's Sister by Carrie Anne Noble, which is a fairy tale-like story of Clara and her sister, Maren, who is slowly becoming the mermaid she's always been meant to be. Which is a problem because they live on a mountain in Pennsylvania, far from the sea. This is a little different from what I expected, less rollicking and more melancholy, and also Clara, for being the narrator and protagonist, really should have been fleshed out more. While we get a sense of her as the very prim and proper sister, since Maren is the flirty adventurous one, she (Clara, I mean) only really talks about things she doesn't approve of, not things she actually really likes. I mean, besides story-telling beside the fire with warm mugs of cocoa. Like, that's lovely, but who doesn't love that? There's nothing about her own desires (except for the boy she's in love with), what she wants to do with her life after her sister returns to the sea etc. Also spoiler ) So there is some animal harm, and also stereotypical use of traveling players. I thought it was a slight but enjoyable read.

The Hidden Blade by Sherry Thomas, which is all the tragic backstory for the book I'm reading now. I enjoyed it, though someone more qualified than I will have to discuss whether/how badly Thomas handles 19c. China, and I could have read a lot more of Amah training Ying-Ying and Leighton's adventures with the spinster sisters, and a lot less of Leighton's miserable childhood with his evil uncle. *hands*

What I'm reading now
My Beautiful Enemy by Sherry Thomas, which is the historical romance part of the story, with Leighton and Ying-Ying meeting in London after having known and loved each other briefly elsewhere years before. I'm enjoying it.

I'm also rereading Maskerade, but I find all the stuff about how fat Agnes is a real downer, so it's slow going.

What I'm reading next
Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky became available from the library, so that'll be next.

I know a lot of you read my fics on AO3 without having accounts, or without logging in to your accounts, and... you’re not going to be able to do that anymore.


I’m waiting a week or so, and then bulk-changing the settings so that only registered users can read my shit. Why? Well, frankly, anon fucksticks are fucksticks, and I don’t have the time for fuckstickery that isn’t silicone, lovingly sculpted, and, let’s be frank, shipped to me from Bad Dragon.

I wasn’t going to do it. I waited a *long* time. I *hated* the idea of making it hard for a lot of y’all to get to my work -- what author doesn’t want a wide audience?

But then I thought about it, and I remembered that, yo, I’ve been blocking anons in *every* aspect of my online presence to my *great* pleasure and joy since *2001*.


Might I suggest signing up?

Home Repairmen Needed Desperately

Aug. 25th, 2015 02:37 pm
gehayi: (upside down house (gehayi))

Does anyone know of any good carpenters in Connecticut? Because I have to say that I am not finding them, and I am still trying desperately to get my roof repaired before it snows. Which, in Connecticut, could be as early as October, so I do not have much time left to get the repairs done. I’ve been trying since APRIL.

Seriously, folks, I need suggestions. One company tried twice and only made the leaks infinitely worse. One said that it wasn't a job he could handle (which is unfortunate, as this is the one company that I know from previous encounters, and they’re capable). One charged close to three hundred dollars for an estimate and then said he couldn't handle it. One said that he could do the job for about three hundred, but he hasn't sent a written estimate and won't give me a definite date that he'll do the work, so fuck him.

That’s four companies and a thousand dollars worth of nothing--a thousand dollars that I could not afford to spend. I need the roof repaired, I need it to be affordable, and I need it NOW.

I've also called the woman who is in charge of Housing Rehab in my town, which is affiliated with Housing and Urban Development. The problem is that she is never there. I've been calling and leaving messages for four weeks and she never answers. According to people elsewhere in Town Hall, she has not quit and does, in fact, still work there. So I don't know what's going on.

ETA: (8/28/2015) I found out what was wrong! She was out for a few weeks having and recovering from shoulder surgery. And thanks to budget cuts, the Housing Rehab office has been reduced to, well, her.

I've been trying so hard for so long, and I'm not getting any help on this.

I would really, REALLY like to have the roof repaired before it caves in under the weight of winter snow.

I've been here the whole time, but for people coming back to DW/LJ, here's what I'm up to these days...

So what have you been up to? / Major life changes? Same old same old?
Same old same old. I thought there'd be more going on because I thought I'd have to move in September in addition to getting a new boss etc., but right now that doesn't seem like it's going to happen. And the new boss seems like she's going to be cool, but she doesn't start for another couple of weeks.

What fandom are you in/do you spend most of your time in?
MCU, specifically Steve and Bucky, but I am always somewhat multifannish, so many other things also get my attention. (Recently, not related to the MCU, I'm spending a lot of time thinking about: Tim/Kon, Ahsoka Tano, Sirius/Remus, Robins…)

Where do you hang out online?
I'm here on DW/LJ, and on Tumblr, I'm cacchieressa, because originally I got a tumblr to follow tumblrs about Robins and to post baking pictures. It wasn't supposed to be so fannish? Ha. Yeah.

I'm not on it during the work day, and sometimes I take two or three day breaks from it, because it can be both numbing and infuriating, sometimes at the same time, but I think my tumblr - which is 85% fannish and 15% pictures of puppies – is as good a view into my soul as anything ever was. Maybe more than journal space, since I don't have say anything on Tumblr, I can just reblog a million different gif sets of my otps, favorite characters, and cute dogs.

What are you reading?
Books – see my what I'm reading Wednesday tag.

Fic – I regularly check the Steve/Bucky and Steve/Bucky/Natasha tags on AO3 for things relevant to my interests, and also my pinboard network. If you had told me two years ago that Steve/Bucky would become the juggernaut pairing of the fandom, I wouldn't have believed you. Not because I didn't ship it from the moment Bucky rescues Steve in that alleyway in CATFA, but because it hadn't taken off after the first movie, which made me so sad at the time. And now people complain about it, my little otp that overtook the original juggernauts. ♥

The Raven Cycle, though I must admit, sometimes it's too heavily focused on Adam/Ronan and not enough about Blue and the OT5 for me.


Also rereading some DCU faves, and I still read a number of other fandoms when the stories cross my path. My pinboard is probably the best place to see where my fic reading is at, though right now I have about 10 tabs open at home of things I need to write recs for. Sigh. #fangirl problems

What are you watching?
I cruised through all of Steven Universe this summer and am waiting eagerly for it – and all my other tv shows – to return. I haven't really caught on with any new-for-summer shows, but I've been slowly rewatching Legend of Korra for the first time after doing my usual summer AtLA rewatch.

I've also been obsessively looping through the last 3 HP movies for some reason – I find the epic horcrux hunting road trip unbelievably soothing for some reason (possibly because it soothes my trioshipping heart).

I also do some selected Clone Wars rewatching and to get really granular, I've probably watched the climactic scene of the Rebels s2 premiere an embarrassing number of times. (I'll be really honest – if Anakin's relationship with Padme weren't so central to the whole big tragedy [and also to producing my favorite character], I'd probably have shipped him with Ahsoka once I knew she existed, because it's exactly the kind of wrong mentor/student relationship that hits my id in strange, indefensible places. But I can't because the characters and the story don't work like that.)

I'm also awaiting season 3 of Miss Fisher on Netflix (as well as all my returning network shows), because I didn't acquire it, and thinking of restarting my stalled Leverage rewatch, and possibly doing a Middleman rewatch as well.

What are you making?
Fannishly, I'm currently heavily focused on writing two of my wsip: the Veronica Mars/Avengers crossover and the Sirius-is-Batman HP/DC fusion.

What are you squeeing about today?
The Mets! 11 games over .500! Five games up in the NL East! David Wright is back in some capacity! (the team now fields Thor [Noah Syndergaard], the Dark Knight [Matt Harvey], and Captain America [David Wright]. Bartolo Colon and Jacob DeGrom need superhero nicknames too, I guess.) I know it can only end in tears, but I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts and try not to be too heartbroken when it all goes down in flames in September as per usual.

If you could rope old fandom friends into a new fandom, it would be.....
The Raven Cycle! Check, Please! iZombie! The 100!

I should really watch/read/dive into _______ and then come talk to you about it!
Check, Please! The Raven Cycle! The 100! iZombie! The Flash! Steven Universe!

If you stopped watching Korra, you should watch seasons 3 and 4. They're really good!

Really, come talk about almost anything I'm fannish about (Robins! Middleman! Firefly! Steve/Bucky! Sirius/Remus! Nick/Cassie!) except the things I had bad breakups with (XMM, SPN). I get excited about a lot of my old fandoms when they pop up.

What else is on your mind?
Questions of why I can't find Star Wars fic that scratches my particular itches re: Leia + Anakin, Leia + Padme, Padme living to lead the Rebellion, Ahsoka + Luke and Leia, etc. (I'm banking on Rebels to rip my heart out re: Anakin+Ahsoka so I don't need fic for that I guess. please don't let Ahsoka die.) I am afraid of going looking without recs, and I don't want to write anything myself, so I click around grumpily on AO3 and wonder what I'm missing.

Author's note: cottoncandy_bingo: scars. I was just joking here but the mental image stayed with me.

Happy late birthday, Lissa! I wanted to give you a present sooner, but I had a rough couple of months and have been exhausted.

musesfool: key lime pie (pie = love)
[personal profile] musesfool
So the quiche turned out very delicious (pics) but it was also a ginormous mess, because when I was pre-baking the pie crust, one edge broke off when I peeled the foil off. I guess I wasn't as gentle as I should have been.

I figured it didn't matter, but when I was pouring the egg mixture into the pie shell, it spilled over everywhere. I mean, I had the pie tin on a cookie sheet, so I was able to keep it partially contained, but it was still a mess and I had to stop and wipe everything down with Clorox wipes, because raw eggs and salmonella, and I think maybe the onions were too liquidy even though I drained off the liquid before I put them in the crust, but overall, the taste is spectacular. I used caramelized onions and shredded mozzarella, and I had enough egg mixture to fill six muffin cups in addition to the pie, so I'll be eating a lot of quiche this week. *g*

In other news, I got a call from Citibank this morning - someone tried to use my credit card and they wanted to know if it was me, and it was not. So thankfully that was nipped in the bud (it was only $35 in charges, so they caught it pretty quickly). Now they're mailing me a new card. But ugh, that's a phone call no one enjoys getting.

Work was busy this morning - new boss was here for a meeting with boss2 and also to fill out some paperwork etc. and I had a bunch of people wanting things from me, but it seems to have quieted down a little now, so I think I'll have my lunch.

musesfool: Ahsoka Tano (dynamite the dam on the flow)
[personal profile] musesfool
Yesterday for some reason (I like to be sad? Idek) I rewatched the Wrong Jedi arc of The Clone Wars and it made me cry. It's Ahsoka's last arc on the show, and dammit, would it have hurt anyone to have let her and Anakin have a hug before she walked away? As I said on tumblr, I feel like everything would be at least 18% less sad if they'd hugged. That's just math, okay. (Certainly Anakin might have made fewer terrible choices if he'd been hugged more once he left home. I am just saying. Look at AtLA/LoK - hugs make better heroes. But I don't really have the energy to write a whole essay about how the Jedi failed Anakin, but wow did they ever, and they certainly paid the price for it.)

But it also makes me want to see speculation about s2 of Rebels )

I also have a lot of thoughts about how Harry Potter is the Star Wars of people my niece's age (born in the late 80s/early 90s), in that it had that same saturation at that same impressionable age, and it continues to recur and reverberate years afterward, but I don't really have anything substantial to back that up. (I also feel like Star Trek was a similar thing before Star Wars, and certainly superhero comics - at least at the top tier of superheroes even prior to the current cinematic universes - has that same sort of broad reach over even more generations, though I would argue that I certainly don't feel like I did anything to deserve the Man of Steel version of Superman, and I'd like to send him back for an earlier model. Maybe even LotR, at least in certain geeky circles. I mean, those are the major all-time [non-sports] megafandoms, right?)

And that's a lot of heavy thinking for a Sunday morning, so I'll just leave it be for now. I have onions caramelizing in the slow cooker, because I'm going to attempt to make a real quiche later for lunch this week (though I just bought frozen pie shells; I don't have the room to roll out pie crust even if I were confident in making one), so I'll let you know how that goes.

musesfool: close up of the Chrysler Building (home)
[personal profile] musesfool
Last night I was up late reading since I was unable to sleep, and it turned out to be a pretty good thing, because long about 2:30 am someone started banging vehemently on the front door of the building. I live in the first floor front apartment, so I hear all sorts of comings and goings at all sorts of hours, but this went on for a good ten or fifteen minutes, and it startled me when I was awake; if it had woken me from a sound sleep, I'd probably have been terrified. Then someone buzzed them in, but I guess they didn't make it through both doors? Or they went back out again? because there was more banging. Usually this is a sign of drunk relationship drama, but it went on a long time. So I didn't sleep until after 4 am. Bleh.
