So, I've decided to save links to all my stories on pinboard.  Everything is there now.

It's here, if you want to check it out.

ETA 2016: I'll only be using this to keep track of my comment_fic fills from now on.

I give blanket permission for podficcing and other things -- but let me know what's being done with my fics, and if you want to do anything with any of my original stuff, you have to ask me first. DO NOT repost any of my works anywhere, though links are fine.

so i’ll be making a presentation in my writing class about how to use fanfiction for creative writing and student engagement

anyone got a quote for me about how fanfiction helped them learn to write / encouraged them / anything else along these lines?


Have any of my fics/poems ever made you cry? If so which? Why?


So I’m reading Dewey’s Art as Experience. Dewey says, “A work of art no matter how old and classic is actually, not just potentially, a work of art only when it lives in some individualized experience.”

Query: is art art if no one is there to appreciate it?

Query: does art lose some of its artness when the context of its original creation is gone?

I’m pretty sure he’s arguing no to the first and yes to the second, and I’m really pretty sure I’m not sure that I agree.
so i made two new blogs:

one for school (it's part of an assignment, okay)

one for my cats
also! i’mma start trying to podfic some of my stuff. any requests?


So who wants to look over the fanart I'm making for one of my poems and tell me if makes sense or not?

So, I have a bin full of books that I’m planning to donate. Would anyone want three books chosen at random mailed to them? I’d only ask for $3 - $5 on paypal, to help mitigate shipping costs, and also a list of no-gos about plot/subject.

Okay, so in my writing class last year, I signed up for a thing that lets you know when something academic attached to your name is downloaded; the only thing I have academically accessible is my Master’s thesis.

I just got updated that someone in Norway and someone in Iran downloaded my thesis about elderly emergent readers and their life history with literacy. It’s odd yet cool.

SO. I kinda want to do timestamps in the time traveling Sam ‘verse.  Here’s the ideas I have so far:

- Michael/Millie & Samael/Deanna walking the Earth (and running into a few angels or demons)

- Abbadon + Henry Winchester are still gonna show up

- Rowena exists

- the Nazi necromancers exist

- the bunker!

- Alistair is King of Hell

- Amara + the Three-Fold Creator

Any other ideas? suggestions? requests?

This morning, my sister decided it was time to let her cat Jenny go; to combat Jenny’s chronic illness would have been cruel because her quality of life... it would’ve been cruel.

Jenny has been part of my life for almost ten years. Of course, I named her, and her nicknames rotated between Jenny the Hutt, JennyMelon, and JennyBean.

Triggers this past week:

On thanksgiving, my uncle's oven literally caught fire - there were actual flames.

Last night (11/28), I dreamed about running into a fire to rescue dozens of cats.

Today (11/29), someone texted me pictures of kittens that need fostering and one looked exactly like baby!Gus.

What the fuck is the world trying to tell me?

Would anyone want a holiday postcard/greeting mailed to them?
So, I'm taking a class called Subversive Fairy Tales and Radical Bliss, right? We read various fairy tale themed works and write fairy tale prose/poetry.

I am straight-up writing poems about fairy tales and mostly playing with format; my classmates are writing poetry that interprets our prompts other ways, and some of the works, I am really not liking. We read our pieces aloud and then have small-group workshops, where everybody's gets 5 minutes of focus. I'm the only non-English/creative writing major in the room (though, I DO have a BA in English).

I just... some of the feedback I've been getting is making me wonder if I'm as good a writer as I think I am, but then, maybe it's just that our styles are different? I'm not experimenting with topics or voices or styles; I am straight-up writing fairy tale poetry for my subversive fairy tale class, and I guess it's too on-the-nose for some of my classmates?

This is my fun class. I'm thinking of talking to the professor about it tomorrow, because we're meeting to discuss my work thus far.

Anyone wanna volunteer to help me figure out the details for my 12-poem project for my poetry class? Some very dark fairy tale AUs are included, and I’m also worldbuilding a continent with multiple countries involved in at least one very bloody war, and a whole new pantheon because why the fuck not.
