Today's gothercizing was part of a family tradition: On the day of the big sportsball game, the big brother and I go thrift shopping! Walking! Lots of it!

Today's outfit, including the fabulous (if I do say so myself) Bauhaus skirt.

I hit the gothic romance motherload! Back cover blurbs variously refer to haunted mansions, brooding mansions, and bats.

When the Thrift Store Gods show you a candle labeled Serendipity, you buy it. #thriftwitchery

The idea here is to organize a gift exchange designed for Marvel and it's many branched runs, authors, related and unrelated fandoms. The idea is to include the X-Men side and the Avengers side and every other side that non-Marvel fans don't realize is Marvel. The idea is to include any timeline you want, any world you want, any character you want, so long as it's Marvel.

It is the season of Haunit, which means harvest festivals, feasts, tribute to the lost, and celebrations. This year, Lio has turned her back on the traditions of her tribe, opting instead to travel to the far-away land of Halchein to observe the ceremony of Haoul -- where for one day, the veil lifts between her world and the next and the spirits are free to roam.

What she does not know is that one spirit in particular is eager for a chance at retribution this year. Lio stands to lose everything in a race against time, distance, and her own messy past.

Lexa's a young child who's about to have the weight of the world placed on her shoulders. On her journey to becoming Commander, she faces hardship and tragedy, but all the while, a stranger keeps popping in and out of her life, offering her hope and a little friendship. But who is the stranger? And how is it that years pass but she still looks the same?

Or, A Doctor Who "Girl in the Fireplace" AU in which Clarke is the Time Traveller and Commander Lexa is the young girl with much promise.

It requires zero knowledge of the original work, and only borrows some of the general mechanics of the story.

I put in a decent amount of work into the Worth blog post - some of it writing, some of it basically note-taking/outlining. Then I also wrote a BadHistory post about that MessyNessyChic article on Margaine-Lacroix's "body-con" dresses in 1908, which was satisfying.

I also sewed the side seams in both my petticoats - 3 60" panels, which might be too much but I can always take some kind of dart/tuck in them if I have to, Liz Clark's instructions call for 120"-180" and I was like "I'd rather have it than want it" - and put in two tucks around the bottom, and then ironed them down. It's looking good for me to gather them to waistbands tomorrow! Although I don't want to think about gathering 180" ... these may be stroked gathers with one row of stitches.

Will I put the zipper in my dress this weekend and hem it? I would like to think so, but I'm not optimistic.

Oh, btw! I finally got registered for The Sewing Academy. I don't actually have anything to say, but I love knowing that I can now say it if I want to.

This poem is spillover from the February 2, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from [personal profile] sweet_sparrow and [personal profile] rix_scaedu. It also fills the "sharing a bed" square in my 1-4-16 card for the [community profile] trope_bingo fest, and the "talk with a friend" square in my 1-23-16 card for the Valentine's Day Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by LJ user Book_worm5. It belongs to the Polychrome Heroics series.

lunabee34: (spn: ruby 1st incarnation by music_fun)
[personal profile] lunabee34
Emma and I are a couple discs into season three of SPN,and this is the moment when their regard for the hosts of demons starts changing, and it's *Sam* leading that charge. I had misremembered Dean as the original main offender, but no. It's Sam.

We know for certain, for example, that Casey in "Sin City" would have survived if Sam had allowed the demon to depart her body; the demon is pretty clear about taking good care of Casey's body. Similarly, with the Crossroads Demon, I've always had the impression that it just jumps into the nearest pretty girl. No reason to believe she couldn't have survived either.

I mean, the gun itself ensures that the host dies, too (Ruby's knife as well although compunction at human death is not one of her key traits). I want somebody to write a fic that starts, "Back in 1835, Samuel Colt made a gun. And then he was really, really, really sad about it and never told anybody else how to make bullets for it because he hated watching people die. That's why he became a hunter. To keep people from dying."

I'm jesting a bit here. I know that within the narrative of the show, sometimes the host has to die. But the boys get so cavalier about it eventually, and this is the start of that slippery slope.

In other news from this rewatch, how freaking much was I pulling on the first watch for Ruby to be another Spike. I was deeply disappointed when she turned out to be a bad guy. One of the problems I've always had with the show is that there's no consistent voice of dissent, no consistent outside voice of reason or point of view. Bela was this. Ruby was this. Castiel is this sometimes. But I wanted her to be this morally gray character that helped them sometimes and did things they thought were wrong sometimes but was a part of the group.

Have some Yuletide recs.

I don't watch this show, but I love everything Exec writes. If she wanted to write about the ingredient list on a cereal box, I guarantee it would be worth reading.

What's that date like now that Dave and Kimberly are back on Earth? I really like fics that explore what the two of them would do after Fionavar.

The Spirits of the Dead by Galadriel
The Following
Ryan Hardy/Joe Carroll
I am thoroughly ecstatic with the story I received for Yuletide this year, so what I am about to say is not a slam on my story at all. The story Galadriel wrote is exactly what I was hoping for if someone chose to write me The Following. This is Ryan hallucinating Joe while he seeks revenge, and well, it's perfect.

As though it's not enough for Bilbo to consider that she is actually not the only female member of the Company, then she finds out that Thorin hasn't been clear enough about certain things to Fíli and Kíli. Clearly it's up to Bilbo to get everything cleared up before there are broken hearts or worse.

Things don't go exactly as Bilbo envisioned, but she rather feels like she wins in the end, anyway.
