I bought comics again. I am not yet actually ordering comics to get what I want, which'd be smart.

I got a Black Widow with whaddayacaller, X-23, and a Sensation. I haven't read them yet.

Oh, and I finally watched an actual episode of Constantine. I missed the first one, this must be second. It was actually...kind of charming and less cynical and bleak than one might expect. I mean, yeah, cynical and bleak enough for a show about John Constantine on NBC Friday nights at 10/9Cen, but the ghosts were actually kind of understandable if being manipulated, and the various bad guys (who were each others' enemies) all got their comeuppance. It could have been darker, really.

My Yuletide assignment is interesting! There are only three requests, but I could potentially write in two of them. The recipient has not posted a Yuletide letter, but I think the details as given are sufficient, probably. The real question, I guess, is whether I want to write in a fandom I've written in before or one I've only consumed canon for. (Or both if I'm feeling ambitious, which is less likely. Except that there's plenty of TIME, if inspiration hits soon.) SIGH. IDK. Maybe if I revisit all the canon, something will shake loose? I hope??

Annnd there were 2 trick or treaters after all! Such cute little kids. I think all the others headed off together to a party somewhere? Or the "non-scary" event at the zoo? Or an event somewhere else? I certainly heard enough of them in the street before sundown, but they got into cars and didn't bang on anyone's door at all.

This adorable little girl (probably somewhere in the 8-10 range) just came by my door with a group of five other kids. They were all wearing Marvel-inspired costumes, and all of them but her were obviously superheroes (Hawkeye, Spider-Man, Wolverine, Lady!Captain America, and Iron Man "because girls can call themselves Iron Man if they want and Iron Woman sounds stupid" - the kid's words, not mine).

The girl (who was Asian) was dressed all in black, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. emblem sewed onto her sleeve. I told her that I knew she was a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent but asked if she was anyone in particular.

Her reply? "I'm Melinda May, but you can call me The Calvary."

... there's a chance that both she and Iron Man might have gotten some extra candy based on pure awesomeness.

I do not have TIME to claim any of your art and write for it. I do not. Stop looking at me like that.

I got trick-or-treaters! Lots of them!

No, see, this is a big deal for me. Back in Tennessee, we never got trick-or-treaters at our house. Trick-or-treating out in the country where our farm was involved getting into a car and drive from house to house, so people mainly stuck to the "main" road; they never went onto the side roads like the one my parents' house is on.

Then, at my old apartment, it really wasn't a thing either. We might occasionally get a kid or two, but they just... didn't do much trick-or-treating at the apartment complex. Or maybe it was just our side of the complex where they didn't? I think most of the families with kids tended to live on the opposite side, so maybe that explained it?

But at my new place? So. Many. Kids. Some of the parents apparently organized and had the kids meet in groups of 20 or so all over the apartment complex, and then the giant groups all went around together. (It's a fairly huge complex, at least five times larger than the one I was living in previously and probably more than that.)

Oh, and the cats absolutely terrified one of the groups. It's chilly out, but they were in a mood, so I left the balcony door cracked just enough for them to slip in and out. I have some decorations outside, a couple of battery-operated plastic jack-o-lanterns and a fake skull sitting on my table (which is covered in some tattered, cobweb-like cloth), and I guess the kids must have assumed the two black cats were part of the decorations. So when they started moving around? One of the kids screamed, which led to all of the kids screaming, which led to two very startled kitties.

But still, trick-or-treaters! ♥

I am not doing NaNoWriMo this year. No really, I'm not. I don't have a good enough idea for a long tale and while I hit word count last year I never did manage to finish that story either. January rolled around and instead of sitting down to finish it I teetered around the edge of the winter depression pit. At least I didn't fall in this year.

On the other hand... I've just re-read the 2013 effort and I still like the story enough to want to finish writing it even if some scenes make me wince a bit. (Subtlety: I do not have it.) So I've kind of signed up to NaNo on the understanding with my subconscious that I'm not in any way going to fret about word count but I do quite well at sitting down in the company of the Internet in November and hammering through a first draft so I'm going to spend the month trying to finish that particular story.

In other news I have absolutely not purchased some movies based on the fact that one of my roleplaying characters might like them. Really.

Title: Circling Backarchiveofourown.org/works/1467004/chapters/3091645
Series Title: It's Not Linear
Author: chaya
ship/characters: Bucky/Steve, Pepper/Tony, Jane/Thor, eventually Sam/I won't tell you but it's great 
Rating: R
flocked: ao3
Warnings: lots of feels?
Summary: Bucky comes to Steve, who takes him to Avengers Tower for help. Bucky's recovery is not linear. 
Reason for Rec: Bucky feels, Sam, humor, Steve feels, Sam sass, black!Peter, mentor!Bucky, Hulk and snack foods, Natasha and Bucky speaking in Russian, T'Challa, and the entire sequel which has been taken down? Hopefully it comes back.
Parker comes over the next day, wearing street clothes and carrying a backpack. Natasha pulls him into the hallway after the initial meet-and-greet of everyone in the Tower, and just as Natasha had told Steve he would, Peter comes back in looking at Bucky with a forced everything-is-fine kind of expression. Bucky, thank god, doesn't seem to notice, because Bruce has finally gotten around to explaining what it is he does.
"Green," Bruce confirms, smiling a little sadly.
"How big, though?"
Peter edges around the room to come back to Steve, and Steve can still see it - that edge of starstruck awe in Peter's face, even when he's still processing what Bucky is, what he was made to do.
"So, uh." Peter chews his lip. "Hydra, huh?"
"Yeah," Steve says, and his voice is light and firm at the same time. This is your opportunity to get past it. If you don't, this won't work.
Peter nods, following Steve's gaze to where Bruce is raising one hand higher and higher, finally gesturing up to a point in the high ceiling where the Hulk's head would be, and Bucky's eyes are as wide as saucers.
"But he's, like, cool now." Peter puts in that strange modern inflection that makes it a question.
"He's a good person," Steve says. "Who's been through a lot."
"Okay." Peter tilts his head, as if recalibrating a little, then looks excited. "Has someone told him about Obama yet?"
"Sam did. He was more surprised by JFK."
Steve holds his hands out, shrugging. "Everyone seems to forget how much America distrusted Catholics."

Hey, there's nothing here! Sorry, I never really migrated in this direction, when Livejournal was pried from my cold, withered hands, it was straight off to tumblr. I still use this for comments and joining community discussions and occasionally messaging people, but there's only so much room for social media in my life so this isn't a real blog.

I'm Aiffe in most places! Here, LJ, tumblr, deviantart, FFN, AO3, etc. (The aiffe on twitter is someone else though.) I've been around in fandom for over 10 years so it's entirely possible we've crossed paths before.

Also, I have sideblogs on tumblr, forbitten-fruit for fic and vampyrrhicvictory for art. Those might give you a better sense of me than my main, which is mostly reblogs.

Happy Halloween!

[community profile] trickortreatex is open!

I got a great fic and two super cute pictures, and am now feeling a little guilty for only writing one thing (well, and another thing under a sock).

Title: August Ancestors
Author: Unknown at This Time
Fandom: Sleepy Hollow (TV)/Carnivale
Characters: August Corbin, Jenny Mills, Abbie Mills, Iris Crowe
Rating: G
Word Count: 531
Summary: Undisputed matriarch of the family, August Corbin's gran was slightly mad and entirely beloved.
Notes: I shook this gift and was terrified that the author was going to make August and Justin the same person, but it does something way better in terms of setting up Corbin's background and motivation, and has nice moments with both Mills sisters.

Art: against the odds by unknown (G). Super cute line art of Gimli and Legolas fighting ghosts.

Art: silken strands by unknown (G). Same of Gimli braiding Legolas' hair.

Now I just have to do [community profile] intoabar Donna Becket meets Stacker Pentecost, and shameless Porthos/All the Ladies porn for [personal profile] seascribe. Oh, and there's a wrap up and discussion post for [community profile] femslashex over here, for those with suggestions on how to build a better mousetrap fanworks exchange.

We don't really do Halloween out here, other than dressing in silly hats, eating pumpkin seeds and playing board games, but I did carve a fannish pumpkin.
Thus: )

On the space theme, read another space book.

My Dream of Stars: From Daughter of Iran to Space Pioneer by Anousheh Ansari, with Homer Hickam
Possibly a bit fluffy, or possibly the author is the most positive person in the world. In either case, it made a fast read, and I enjoyed following her along as she got to do what we all really, really want to do. The sections on training in Star City and on cosmonaut culture were especially interesting, and the writing was engaging enough that I was rooting for her to get through and get to space. Fun book, and interesting to read a completely different perspective on the space program.
