Well, the wolf pack seems to have descended into the weasel brigade. I am so, so fed up with this particular pack of weasels I cannot even tell you. I think they've multiplied, even. Though in this case multiplying means they've conserved mass so at least they're somewhat smaller. I just. So sick of these weasels. So sick of them. I would like them to go away now, please and thank you. Unfortunately weasels are insidious fuckers who don't work that way.

But on the plus side even after skipping capoeira on Wednesday I went in yesterday morning, I did the thing, I did pretty well, I did not in fact start grapevining when I should have been doing a side step move, I don't know what the name of it is but it is not a grapevine (the dance move, that is). And I got some more homework. And my legs hurt like hell. Definitely need to build more strength from my hips down, like, a lot. And some more core strength as well. In general, and for morebetter capoeira and for morebetter self esteem. Though I'm already kind of at a point I never thought I'd get to.

Still ever so deeply annoyed that the panel mods gave us three weeks' notice. I mean, that's one thing for shows that are still airing but for shows with 23 hours of content or more that some of us would like to review before we go get pulled up as alleged experts on the subject? Three weeks is not enough time to do it at a leisurely pace! Ugh.

On the plus side, the rudiments of my America Chavez costume are done, all that's left is for the paint to dry. I still need to figure out if I'm going to take anyone other than America Chavez and Abby Sciuto, and if so I need to wash those tomorrow morning. And other than that I think I am by and large ready for Dragon*Con? I could always, I suppose, post my panel schedules up somewhere. And at some point tonight I'm going to organize out the rest of my packing, if not do it because I'm still going to need my phone and my wallet and things. I might pack my Kindle and charge cord though. And. I guess that's what I'll do in the last hour before bed, organize the shit out of myself. Augh. DragonCon, I always freak out in the days leading up to it because what have I forgotten zomg. Yeah, I have no idea what other costumes I'm bringing. I need to look at my schedule, see when I have to look like a professional, if I want to look like a professional when I talk to people like authors and such, and if ... I have no idea. Oh, but I should pack that blue Star Trekky dress. Because reasons. And heels and hose to go with.

Argh. Okay, less flailing, more prepping and talking and taking notes while all of this has been going on, and so on.

Yuletide Comment Call

Aug. 30th, 2015 09:10 pm

Posted by morbane

With Yuletide just around the corner, I would like to propose a commenting challenge.

What: Comment on things, especially things you've been meaning to comment on, especially in Yuletide or in small fandoms
When: Now until whenever! But probably until nominations
Why: Every year, I see the following comments:
  • There's so much fic in Yuletide! I can only comment on some of it, then I burn out.

  • It's great that people read my small fandoms fic in Yuletide, but I write it all year, and I feel like no one reads it then.

  • This person commented on three of my Yuletide fics! They must really like my style. But I was hoping they would come and read my other stuff, and they didn't.


A lot of people aren't big commenters, and that's OK. (And the kudos button has an honourable function too.) A lot of people are commenting just as much as they want to comment right now, and that is also OK. But a lot of us mean to comment more, but don't get around to it, so I figured we could use the extra push of a challenge.

Besides, if you poke around in small fandoms expecially, you might discover that a fic you've been meaning to ask for this year has already been written, and it's perfect - or, you might narrow down exactly what's missing in a fandom, so as to shape your requests.

So! Challenge!

Set a pledge for yourself, make a comment to this post describing it, if you want, or just come back and say how it went.
As an option for your pledge, tick off items from the list below:

comment on 3 fics by the same author
comment on a fic in a fandom you mean to request this Yuletide
comment on a fic in a fandom you mean to offer this Yuletide
comment on a fic you first read over 1 year ago
comment on a podfic

comment on a fic about 2 of your favourite characters
comment on a fic in a New Year's Resolution collection (any)

comment on 3 different fics in the same fandom
comment on a crossover
comment on 5 drabbles
make the first comment on a work
comment on a fic you've already commented on


This list is obviously biased towards Yuletide, but I hope that's a feature, not a bug.
I'm happy to add things! Suggest things and I'll edit them in. Other feedback also welcome.

And of course, the parent Yuletide collection is here.

I should take off the compression thingy they put on me after surgery this afternoon, and I'm afraid to. I want to desperately because it itches like crazy, but I'm afraid of what I'll find. I'm afraid it will hurt more or that I'll bleed all over or something. I also want to wash a little, but I'm afraid I'll do it wrong. I'm also worried that none of the bras Mom bought will fit and that I'll have to put this thing I've been wearing for 48 hours on again without having a chance to wash it. They want me to wear it or a sports bra (which I don't have) for two weeks, but they weren't very clear about the purpose of doing so.

Lovely, lovely anxiety.

YOU NEED A BOOK

A POEM EVERY DAY

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
