Written for origfic bingo:


They called it ‘magic’, this feeling that was supposed to overwhelm her when she finally met the one.


Air tossed another cheap paperback book across the room, narrowly missing Shadow’s head. He shot her a raised brow glance from the dresser he was sitting on.


“Boring,” she said tightly. “Unrealistic.”


She picked up another book, then wondered why she bothered. She’d tried genre after genre, looking for something she could either relate to or believe in long enough to forget the things she related to.


She sighed, admitted quietly to Shadow, “He’s not magic. He’s real.”


It’s what she wanted.

I made sure I scheduled them before I moved so they wouldn’t be interruptedĀ by the move, but it doesn’t seem like anyone’s getting much use out of them right now. Should I keep posting them?

So the nun who won the axe throwing contest back in 2015 was at faire again this weekend with two of her nun friends. I recognized her because I’ve got a photo of her with her prize from the contest on my hard drive. The guys from the Hitting and Stabbing Emporium went out of their way to find an appropriate prize for her. Since clerics aren’t supposed to carry edged weapons, they found a mace for her somewhere, and that was her prize. Supposedly she’s a school teacher and had said she’d use the mace to keep her students in line.

They were at the entrance to the encampment and I went running over to them and was just the biggest fangirl. “You’re the one who won the axe throwing contest at the Hitting and Stabbing Emporium, aren’t you?” She laughed, and her friends did too (I think I recognized one of them as the nun that was with her that year). We chatted for a few moments, and she said she was planning to go visit Hitting and Stabbing again.

I just think it's awesome that the nuns like to come out to the renn faire.

Does anyone have a weird awful desire to pair Diana Prince and Jim Gordon together?

Thoughts?

I've looked for fanfic with this pairing, but haven't found any.

Busy day and I want to get to bed for faire tomorrow, so you get a bullet post!
  • Survived the trip to the vet. And the kitties not being fed until 3:00 so that their meds stayed down. There was even peaceful sleeping after all that excitement (the girls on the same ottoman, a small miracle!)
  • Worked at home today which meant I got much laundry done! (Sheets, all the cat blankets, and darks)
  • Also got the house tidied up and did the Hoovering. I feel like I’m almost keeping up with the housework this faire season. Go me!
  • I took out the trash AND the recycling! Whoot!
  • And made a grocery run. Foods! Om nom nom.
  • Also paid and mailed the bills! Whoo! On a roll!
  • Still on baby watch, no bébé yet.

  1. Secret Project #1 has finally started to come together.

  2. Secret Writing Projects have definitively not.

  3. Same for crossovering and fandom growth exchange fics.

  4. I’ve got a chapter to read for a friend and have been tired with the snifflies all day (wild temperature swings and that time of month mostly).


Looking forward to the weekend. May yours be great!

Today is a lovely fall day with a dark blue sky, golden sunshine, apples on the air, and in the distance, dark clouds over the mountains promising snow up there. It is also decorative gourd season, motherfuckers, as I was reminded when running errands this morning; I impulsively added a small bag of candy corn and a can of pumpkin puree (to make pumpkin espresso bread!) to my grocery run, because while I feel functional I'm going to work it.

I have a new article out at TWC: The margins of print? Fan fiction as book history. I also got cited in another article in the same journal issue, which is exciting!! With my colleague Kate O, we also relaunched the Women in Book History Bibliography last week with a new searchable interface, and I've been doing a lot of data entry from our backlog with it, adding some 250 citations in the past week so that we're at over 900 now! This is extra exciting since when we started we had just over 100, so yay blooming and growing!

I've really appreciated the messages of support I've gotten from you guys about working my way through depression--it really helps knowing that others share the feeling, and so on. <3
