I ended up signing up for [community profile] fandomgiftbox, which is sort of [community profile] fandom_stocking in the summer with slightly different rules. I had fun treating it last year, so why not.

Wish there were more people in my fandoms in [community profile] multifandomdrabble fest. Sign ups open for another day!

I know people have been looking for nice Bill icons from this series of Doctor Who. Here are a bunch made by [personal profile] luminousdaze, along with 12, Missy, Clara and a bunch of the gang.

I really like this essay by [personal profile] lydy: The Rules: A Memo for Every Man in My Life.
Instead, I want to address something that comes up over and over in these conversations, and always from men. "What are the rules?" "How can I know how to behave if you won't clarify what you want?"

Dear men, please do not ask me to provide to you something that I have never had. I cannot provide you the rules. I do not know what they are, and I never have.


Pitssburgh Queer History project has some great archival material here.

ETA: For those who like Murderbot Diaries, Martha Wells is doing an AMA here, and here's a quote from the next one.

I cannot for the life of me seem able to catch up on my sleep. I know I should go to bed earlier, but L's bedtime is 7:30 now and if I go to bed at 9 like I need to (lights off at 9:30 in a bid for something approaching 8 hours' sleep), that leaves me with 1.5 total hours of Adulting, i.e. doing the dishes and reading meme. And I haven't been doing the dishes.

Today I am dragging hard because last night I took half a night Tylenol, so that I could sleep despite anxiety over today's meeting. Coffee doesn't seem to touch that. Better living through modern chemistry.

So I should be writing but see: anxiety re: meetings, so I will do picky work instead. Trying to get a good clean draft of the creative work so that after the meeting I can work on a master draft as I make edits.

I forget what my point was. Okay, onwards to non-brain picky work. Hope to have it done today.

Today I vow to write words

I have set the timer and when it beeps, there will be actual words.

NO MORE RESEARCH. It's a trap!

Vow is written here, cannot be rescinded.

Yay shorts

Today I got two pairs of shorts and a pair of capris for about $15, and for maybe $20 more got L six pairs of shorts and two new jammies. The wonders of a second-hand store. I can't imagine shopping anywhere else as long as we have a child who outgrows things within months. Plus, I am much pleased that since he is two and shows no preference yet, I can shop for him indiscriminately in the boys' and girls' sections, so tonight he went to bed in yellow jammies that say "Cutie!" across the front, which he chose himself out of the three I offered him. Also, I bought him pink Santa jammies in June, because we roll like that.

I really wish I could wear men's shorts, because they're bigger in the legs and also have those mystical things called pockets, but I'm pretty happy with the pairs I did get. Nice to go for a walk in the evening while not feeling stifled and without my waistband digging in. Plus it's gorgeous out and we recently shifted L's bedtime another fifteen minutes later, so once he finishes his watching time after dinner, we head out around the block, him on his pushbike and me or me&[personal profile] bell strolling along behind. A+ excellent weather, June, plz to continue.

Signed up for [community profile] multifandomdrabble fest, which is about my speed these days.

I also really like the idea of [community profile] picture_prompt_fun, but haven't done anything for it yet. #4 is calling to me though.

Most of my fic time is going to be spent reaping and paying off debts incured during STH anyway. I'm doing a multi-media found document thing with a couple other people (hence the card catalogue questions), and then someone put down $100 USD if I'd work on HoS. So.

I'm strongly considering not modding Femslashex this year. I just have too much RL stress, and I'd hate to do it badly. I'll have to decide soon to give time for new mods to take off. Argh. I don't want to give up something I'm really proud of and enjoy, but at the same time...

[livejournal.com profile] cap_ironman RBB is wrapped up, and holy fuck you all NEED to read Every Little Thing He Does Is by [archiveofourown.org profile] a_sparrows_fall. It's a Harry Potter fusion with Marvel 57289, and it's absolutely stunning. Some of the best worldbuilding I've seen in a fandom with baseline fabulous worldbuilding. Go read it. Go read it now.

ETA: [community profile] mcurollingremix has posted. Go here for fic.

She will watch season one of ST:TNG with me. I'm trying to hit the high points while grabbing anything crucial for continuity so that we can watch DS9 together. Today we sampled a snifter of Hide & Q. Seriously, Riker, everyone knows you want to bang Q. Don't let the audience here at home stop you.

Historian/Archivist Question

muccamukk: Abe has a question. (Hellboy: Question)
[personal profile] muccamukk
If you were the Smithsonian, and you had a bunch of stuff in a box in storage, what would the inventory ticket for that look like? I assume there's some kind of catalogue/database that has something like: Wooden box, containing crystal skull. c. 1830. Collected by Davie Jones, 1901. Corridor x, shelf b, box 37. But exact details would be great. Actual images or references would be amazing. I'm googling the wrong terms or something.

(For found document fic.)

ETA: To be clear, I'm looking for whatever the record would look like now, in present day, not in 1901.
