1) Yuletiiiide. Two of my noms have been approved! I'm still waiting on (My) Immortal. The mods are doing so much work, I am trying to be patient.

2) I took Tuesday as a mental health day after getting all my grading done at the last minute nearly killed me, and then I woke up with a sore throat on Wednesday and with a nasty back spasm today. Ugh. I wound up sleeping until nearly 5pm, but I felt better after that. My shoulder/back still hurts like damn, though.

3) I've been playing through Stellaris but the patch drop screwed up my civ's economics pretty badly, so I may just start a new game. It's fun and addictive and I'm really glad I finally started playing, but man. I'm also not all that good at it yet, which is occasionally frustrating! But I like the sound of the stuff in the new update. I may purchase it for cashmoney when my paycheck comes in.

Of course, I also really want to buy Heat Signature, we'll see how that goes. I really want to dual-boot my system with a Windows disk, so we'll see if I can get that up and running, since HS doesn't have a Linux port yet.

Tomorrow is the due date. I am going to be downright hellbent ridiculous determined.

"Oh, I know just the menu to use for this... I can have them order..." *digs out fancy restaurant menu, starts perusing*

Ten minutes later...

"WAAAAIIIIT! This is supposed to be a short smutfic with minimal lead-up."

BUT FOOD.

*scribbles notes for longer epic foodporn fic to write later*

Well, I need to go back to it at some point and rework it into a list for this week, but I'm pretty confident in saying I didn't get most of my weekend to-do taken care of. ^^;; I did get a lot done in the bookroom, which was definitely one of the most important things. However, a lot of it involved unpacking and sorting books and now my bedroom is a disaster of bookpiles (whoops?). I ended up moving a couple of bookcases and the desk twice, because I had ~~different ideas, and then I had one more but ended up not doing it, because instead of trying to incorporate the cedar chest that's been floating around, I should see about parting with it. I don't use it, stuff gets piled on it, and like many pieces of furniture that came over here, it's not actually in very good shape. Well... I don't have to decide on anything today.

Basically, I have to keep reminding myself that not only can I be flexible, it's okay if I am. So if this layout isn't working in a few weeks, I can try something new.

Just unpacking and sorting, I've pulled out three books to go already. Well, for one, I read one chapter and immediately deposited it in the 'take to pagan shop' basket. Not my cuppa. I suspect this will happen more and more as I keep going, especially with reference books that are interesting but not the sorts of things I'll ever need to reference that often, or that seem impressively redundant (like the dozens of gardening books).

Other than that, words! I'm sort of trying for the impossible, lol. Wish me luck! (And words!)

I always go into Hugo voting with the best of intentions. I'm going to read all the things, view all the things, and not just get bogged down in the Novel category. 2017 is going to be different!

Yes. Well.

Appropriately for the Hugo Awards this optimistic view proved to be, as usual, pure fantasy. Still, I did pretty well for a lady with a long commute and limited data; particularly when it came to the Best Short Story category. I read four of the six stories nominated in this category for 2017. And what better way to get back into writing than to share all my thoughts with you?

gramarye1971: Fakir looking up from a library book (Princess Tutu: Fakir)
[personal profile] gramarye1971
Still around and reading, just a bit quiet. Finishing my Remix Revival fic tapped out quite a bit of my creativity. And I keep starting and deleting entire screeds about the current state of North Korean politics and nuclear brinksmanship because I am a rank amateur when compared with the good folks in the disarmament business who can look at a missile for five seconds and say things like ah, yes, that's a second-generation Iranian-produced Scud-D model, only painted black and with extra fins added to it for no good reason that we can determine. I hate feeling only half-informed, if that.

At this point I am crossing off days until my folks swing down from the Frigid North to visit in mid-October, and to my planned Japan trip in mid-November. If anything else creative or similarly productive gets done during the interim, I'm not sure whether it'll be in spite of or because of my own efforts.

But still around and reading, as mentioned.

Cover of The Stars Are Legion by Kameron Hurley


Somewhere on the outer rim of the universe, a mass of decaying world-ships known as the Legion is traveling in the seams between the stars. For generations, a war for control of the Legion has been waged, with no clear resolution. As worlds continue to die, a desperate plan is put into motion. Zan wakes with no memory, prisoner of a people who say they are her family. She is told she is their salvation - the only person capable of boarding the Mokshi, a world-ship with the power to leave the Legion. But Zan's new family is not the only one desperate to gain control of the prized ship. Zan finds that she must choose sides in a genocidal campaign that will take her from the edges of the Legion's gravity well to the very belly of the world. Zan will soon learn that she carries the seeds of the Legion's destruction - and its possible salvation. But can she and her ragtag band of followers survive the horrors of the Legion and its people long enough to deliver it?


I picked this up as part of my transcription duties for Fangirl Happy Hour – it's a lot easier to follow a discussion about a book if you've read it – and it turns out that I have more thoughts on it than I expected!

The plot that can be described without spoiling the book is this: Zan wakes up with few memories of who she is, and a mission to take over a living planet/ship called the Mokshi on behalf of women who claim to be her family. The women are part of the Katazyrna, the ruling family of their own living planet/ship, one bound into a network of other planets/ships known as the Legion; they want the Mokshi because it is a planet not bound into orbit with the rest of the Legion. And from there, things get... Complicated.

aris_tgd: A black and white spiral on a Go board (Pi spiral)
[personal profile] aris_tgd
I wound up nomming things for Yuletide: I nominated Bloodsport, Ninja Assassin, and (My) Immortal: The Web Series. I posted on the evidence post about that last one, but I wouldn't be surprised if the mods decide it's too much work to disambiguate and nix it. I hope, I'd really like some Enoby/Hermione or Enoby&Hermione fic, but we'll have to see!

In any case, it's a good excuse to rewatch the episodes, which is always fun! I still have trouble following what happens in Season 2, but it's still SUPER ADORABLE, OMG, all these dorks I love them all. Even Tom.

Ugh, week is almost over. I have a metric ton of grading to do, but once that's done it's just RESEARCH. I can focus on quantum mechanics all the time! It's all I want from life, really.
