!. We went on vacation last week and it was awesome! Colonial Williamsburg and Richmond which was a lot of fun despite the surprise October heatwave and humidity. Just getting out of town was really great and really necessary. I wish we had another week off.

@. I pretty much unplugged from social media and that was also awesome. I'm not sure I'm going to go back if I can help it. Unfortunately part of my job requires checking FB periodically, but I really hate everything right now.

#. I'm continuing to work on my Avvar!AU, and yesterday and today I hit my first writing block. I know what happens in the next section but I'm not sure how to do the bridge. The last chapter took an unexpected - but I think needed - turn, and now I have to get from B2 to C which I hadn't planned on. Why are romances haaaard? (Hahaha, I crack myself up.)

$. Work part of this week is "retreat" which is code for sitting in meetings for 8 hours, and let me tell you how happy my knee is with that. It really makes me appreciate how much I actually get up and walk around and use my standing desk and my footstool during my normal work day. I ended up standing at the back of the room for a while, and that helped some, but I still took drugs this evening. My cat makes a really great heating pad though.

%. [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico is live! I'm not offering anything, since I have one fundraiser fic still to write plus yuletide, so I'm at capacity, but I will be bidding.

^. Nonfiction books I want to read: Everybody Lies by Seth Stevens-Davidowitz and Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker. Vox has a couple interviews with the Everybody Lies author, which is about using big data from google searches and internet searches to see what people really think and want, with insights into racism and sexual desire. I read a Guardian article with the Why We Sleep guy who is a neuroscience researcher who ended up studying sleep after his Alzheimer's research pointed to stuff happening while we sleep being incredibly important for healthy brains. My sister already grabbed this one, so I'll read it when she's done and get the other one, so we can swap.

&. In other books, my dad got me As You Wish by Cary Elwes about the filming of The Princess Bride. It's a little self-congratulatory and "everybody is great!" ... but considering that my wedding was somewhat Princess Bride themed (I walked down the aisle to Vitamin String Quartet's Storybook Love, and our officient with our blessing opened with Mawwiage because we thought it would be funny and it was.) I'm giving him a pass. Plus once you get passed meeting people and into the anecdotes it's actually a lot of fun, and I was giggling a lot. I think my favorite parts were stories about Andre the Giant and hearing about the fan responses the cast gets.

*. My dad also got me Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, which I've only read the first chapter of so far. Eventually I'll lso get to the stack of sci-fi I got myself over the summer.

(. I'm low key watching Star Trek: Discovery. I haven't watched 1.05 yet. I'm torn on the show. I think I want to like it more than I actually do. But I'm giving it a chance to see if it finds itself.

). [community profile] farscapefridaypodcast  is on break till November when we pick up season 4. I'm glad we took a break, because the schedule is a bit unrelenting. I wish now that we'd taken a break between season 1 and 2 because it would have helped relieve my stress last fall a lot. But we only have one season left! I gotta say, rewatching Farscape has been kind of amazing, and this podcast is something I'm really proud of making, even though it is a metric ton of work for both [personal profile] katewrites  and me. It's totally been worth it. But I won't be sad when we're done.

_. I'm happy with my [community profile] yuletide  assignment. It'll be a little different, but fun I think. I matched on something I thought I would, given the statuses on the requests/offers page.

+. While I've written this list I've been ignoring my writing the Avvar!Au. I should get back on that.

Deletions and Erasures

1) So hello, I'm back from my trip! ::waves:: I didn't take a whole lot of photos this time but do have a few to share. Read more... )

2) This is rather late now but a side benefit to having a romance-only bookstore is that the owners have a additional incentive to research the stats on romances written by POC.

3) Every piece of software needs to have a giant undo option somewhere. It seems like stuff is constantly crammed into software that maybe 50 people across the globe actually use regularly and everyone else is stymied or tripped up by it. I was typing away on an email, three paragraphs in and I've no idea what a finger hit but suddenly the entire text just vanished. I thought maybe it had somehow been cut by accident but when I tried paste, nope, not there. ARGH!

4) For the probably 2 people actually reading any of my dissertation deleted scenes, here's another bit to share. On a section about conceptual frameworks, the following was cut because it got discussed in a later chapter. But this example described a way of interpreting interactions within the group.

tassosss: Cullen (Cullen)
[personal profile] tassosss

Stuck on the Puzzle (235586 words) by thespectaclesofthor
Chapters: 31/31
Fandom: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: Iron Bull/Cullen Rutherford
Characters: Iron Bull, Cullen Rutherford

Additional Tags: Kink Negotiation, non-sexual kink discussion, Drug Withdrawals, resistance to aftercare, corporal punishment discussion, Cullen Has Issues, which surprises no one at all, references to unhealthy SM dynamics, watchwords, Flogging, Aftercare, Resistance, communication issues, Subspace, Touch-Starved, PTSD, covert self-harm, Masochism, Slow Burn, Scratching, Massage, Dominance/submission, Wrestling, Mild Humiliation, Mild subdrop, handjob, Blow Job, Size Kink, Mild Cock & Ball Torture (because I realised most people wouldn't know what CBT meant), Caning, Blood, Impact Play, Punishment, Rimming, Praise Kink, Rope Bondage, Dubious Consent, Clamps - Freeform, Anal Sex, Fingering, Pining, Angst with a Happy Ending, Assisted Suicide of Minor Character

Summary: Once, back in Kirkwall, Cullen had an arrangement with a member of the city guard that satisfied his needs. But time changed all things, and he despaired of ever finding a similar arrangement again - that was, until he met The Iron Bull. Problem being that Bull seemed to care far more about sorting out the nitty-gritty of such an arrangement than Cullen ever has.

Why I loved it: This is an amazing, amazing Cullen/Bull story that really gets at all the untreated trauma Cullen carries around with him. It's as much about the what's going on in his head, and how some of what fucked him up so bad in Kinloch Hold and Kirkwall gets unfucked by his evolving relationship with the Iron Bull, who has his own, though fewer, issues with different things. Do read all the tags because Cullen is very much into pain, but it is done very well, and Bull knows how to take care of him. I really liked the portrayal of Cullen here, where he's holding things together both better and worse than he thinks he is, and he refuses to be a pushover even though he needs to learn to let other people help him. He has good reason not to trust, but part of his journey is learning that others in the Inquisition like and love him for who he is, past sins and all, and it hurts in all the right ways. There is a fantastic friendship between Cullen and Cassandra, too. This is a fic that's going to stick with me.

I made two vids for [community profile] equinox_exchange! Too lazy to repost here, but they are on AO3 (now with downloads, if that is a thing people still do).

Oh Boy [Anne of Green Gables] for [personal profile] sisabet. Gilbert/Anne. The existence of this vid is essentially due to [personal profile] runawaynun, who gifted me this song. I was working on a different Anne vid that was a little unfocused and kind of morphed into something I was less sure [personal profile] sisabet would want. I went back to the drawing board to make the Gilbert vid she really wanted but didn't have a song, and voila, [personal profile] runawaynun had the perfect song suggestion! And then it made itself. He pines so very earnestly.

Send My Love (To Your New Lover) [Mansfield Park (1999)] for [personal profile] trelkez. Fanny/Edmund, Fanny/Henry, Edmund/Mary, but Fanny/Mary most especially. I honestly do not even remember how I got obsessed with making this. Mary Crawford is my secret favorite, and I thought it would be fun to do some Austen femslash, and I guess those things merged and this idea happened. It is the femslashiest Austen! Not a ton of people watched this vid, but I think the ones who did liked it. :D It's kind of stealth femslash, but I liked the surprise ending aspect of it.

And I got two vids! [personal profile] aurumcalendula made my Pride and Prejudice (2005) vid, Do You Dance?, a really lovely vid that uses all the feelings and all the gorgeous movement and visuals of the movie. And HANDS, perhaps you guys know how I feel about hands in vids. And everyone is shocked to learn that [personal profile] silly_cleo made my Sense and Sensibility vid, Wherever We Are. As Cleo said, it's the third vid we've made for each other in exchanges, and the third time it's been obvious from space that we made a vid for each other. Hee!
