I have a little posy of pink geraniums (sheltered by the verandah) freesias and daphne in a vase on my kitchen window. Maybe it really is spring.

There are writing memes about, but I'm not doing one of those. Instead, my writing process, an examination:

1. Look at deadline and break into cold sweat
2. Plod on with 500 words there, 500 word there. Live in hope.
3. Realise that the last 1000 words are not working. Excise them.
4. Scream quietly.
5. Realise that I can use 450 words of what I excised.
6. Breathe a little less erratically.
7. Write another 700 words.
8. Realise that it's still not WORKING!
9. Excise 1100 words, but save in separate file, because maybe there's a Flight related story I could use some of it for later.
10. Eye the china cabinet where the Drambuie is stored.
11. Swallow back sobs of despair.
12. Start new scene altogether where hopefully the logistics of how I explain the the aftermath of the episode Flight can be more satisfactorily lamp-shaded, hand-waved, ignored etc etc, in favour of the guys angsting and hopefully having sex.
13. Note date, and decide to write a bit more before retiring to bed and a fitful sleep.

Okay guys - it's here! My webcomic Kismet is updating on Mondays (NEW PAGE NEW PAGE! \o/) and my Patreon fundraiser page is live. While I'm sure I will talk about it occasionally, in the normal course of "what I'm up to these days" posts, I don't plan to make a habit of spamming you about it. Webcomic updates will be announced over on ye olde realname journal [personal profile] layla/[ profile] laylalawlor (as well as on [ profile] kismetcity). Otherwise, carry on!

Thank you for writing me a story! I love presents, and putting work into something for me makes me very happy. I'm pleased that we have fandoms in common, mystery author, and I look forward to seeing what you end up writing!

A few general likes and squicks before I talk about my fandom. Erm, obviously, I'm not expecting all of the following. Write what you want to write about these characters, and if you want ideas, check out the list. Since you clearly have excellent taste in pairings, I trust to your judgement.

General Likes and Squicks )

Fandoms: Dor | String (2006), Marvel 616, The Musketeers (2014), The Poet Game - Ani DiFranco (Song), Sinbad (TV) )

Optional details are optional! I'm so in love with all of these pairings, that whatever you want to write will make me extremely happy. Again, thank you for offering them, and good luck and god speed.

Happy Birthday!

Wrote this a few weeks ago, after I finally gave up on getting any sleep on the plane whatsoever:

Light is amazing. It moves as fast as it is physically possible to go. And it moves across impossible distances.

Somewhere, 10,000 light years away, a star burned. It sent out light in all directions. Some small portion of that light traveled, not in our direction, but towards where we would be 10,000 years later as the Earth sped and spun through the vastness of space.

It went between stars. Past planets and moons and comets and asteroids and more.

It came to Earth. It headed right for you. But it was daytime, and you didn't notice. You couldn't sort it out from all the much younger light around you.

Still it came. This time at night. But it was a cloudy night, and so it was blocked.

Still it came. On a clear night now. But you were in the city, surrounded by street lights and house lights and car lights. So you didn't notice.

Still it came. But you were indoors, and the light couldn't make it through the wall.

Still it came. You were outside on a clear night, far from the lights of civilization. But your eyes were closed. Or you were looking in the wrong direction. And so you didn't see.

Still it came, but it was in the frequency we call ultraviolet, and so you could not detect it.

Still it came. And this time, everything was right. It had come so far. Not a million miles; it could do that in a matter of seconds. Not billion miles; it could do that in under a day. It had been going that fast for 10,000 years. Since before the dawn of human civilization.

A photon came all that way, and it crashed into a single electron in the back of your eye. And that electron gained the tiniest jump in energy. And that jump got turned into a signal.

At the same time, another photon, this one from 5,000 light years away, hit a different electron in your eye.

And another from 15,000 light years away.

And more from incredible distances apart, all converging on your eye, where they are absorbed. In a way, gone. Their journey over.

But the signals from all those absorptions combine in your brain, and you can see it. The Milky Way.

You look at it in wonder and see its beauty.

And then you blink, and the light bounces off your eyelid. And then you go inside to sleep.

And somewhere in your body is a tiny bit of energy from a star 10,000 light years away.

First of all, thank you so much for creating this fanwork for me! Whatever you choose to write/draw for me, I know that I'll love it.

Likes: Women being loving and supportive of each other, AUs where women take a male character's place, porn with plot, humor/snark, stories that touch on the fandom's mythology, case/mission stories, women that start out as enemies but forge a mutual respect that turns into something more, friends to lovers, and character backstories.

Dislikes: Rape/non-con, child abuse (although canon references are okay), intense psychological manipulation, vore, watersports, and scat, (pretty much any sexual kink involving unconventional use of bodily fluids). I like canon divergence AUs (A happens instead of B), but please no highschool/college or coffeeshop AUs.

I'm generally not a fan of antagonistic relationships, ie hatesex. I know I've requested a few pairings, especially Vikings, in which the women are somewhat at odds, but I prefer that they become friends before any sex occurs.

Fandoms )

In terms of art, I don't have many preferences. I'm generally not a fan of chibis, but they're also really cute so draw them if that's what your heart is set on. My tumblr is here if you're interested in seeing the kind of art I reblog.

Please remember that optional details are optional and don't forget to have fun!

I should probably post something here. It's been a long time. It's just been a crazy summer and I haven't had much chance to catch my breath, let alone organize my thoughts. I've been neglecting all my social media.

I wrote  a beautiful self-care list that basically was just "EAT FOOD AND DRINK WATER DUMBASS", because i felt like shit and emotionally exhausted, and then I ate food, drank water and read for an hour.

and amazingly, I no longer feel like scratching off my skin! I'm just like, normal tired instead of weepily exhausted.

Sometimes I am amazed that I have managed to survive twenty two years, haha. :(

Also, putting this here:

I am so pleased by the way that this picture came out. It is kind of hilarious that the only picture of Sipara that has made me stop and go "!!! oh, she's actually pretty!" is the one where she looks like a guy, haha. :( WHO WOULD HAVE FIGURED.

Life would be easier if I could tell if my inevitable spirals into fits of depression were due to seasonal anxiety, my typical reaction to life changes (desirable or otherwise), or because I am tired and have not eaten.

I mean, it's probably a mixture of all three? And I actually did go ahead and eat a mashed potato even though I feel like throwing up, so hopefully my mood will even out and that'll be that.

I really need to respond to RP tags but I am just so blah right now. I don't want to do anything. My HS OC RP has been enjoyable, but it's hitting the point where I feel like it should be wrapping up, and I feel like my character's actions are already stretching the credibility of his character. (He's coming across as a lot more react-y than I intended, for one, which is distressing. :() But IDK how to necessarily broach that, since I don't personally know the other player and they seem very nice, so I don't necessarily want to suggest we wrap up the scene if they feel as if it should continue to a different conclusion instead.

IDK. The most commonly used word in my vocabulary!  :(

My longtime internet buddy and beta, Starbatz, came up from Cincinnati. She went all four days, I went three. (Sabbath observance means no Saturdays at cons for me. On the plus side, I do not love crowds. The only way that I deal is to pretty much spend my time in the panel/lecture rooms and Artist Alley, rarely venturing farther afield.)

So. Will post swag pics later. (At least, those I can't find online) My camera flash doesn't work so well, so I'm waiting for better light before I take pics.

What I did and what I bought )

Great con, can't wait till next year!
