Meme, recently, seen everywhere:

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Trick or Treat Exchange Letter

Hello Trick or Treat Writer/Artist!

First of all: I'm not hard to please. I'm sure I'll be delighted with whatever you write or draw, so please don't stress over it.

General things I love:

★ relationships built on strong/intense friendship
★ strong/intense friendship in general
★ missing scenes from canon and/or reactions to canon scenes
★ all kinds of moods, from quiet to bittersweet to angsty to funny to intense to fluffy
★ slice-of-life and/or character studies
★ simple everyday non-schmoop romance
★ hurt/comfort - especially emotional wounds or injuries sustained by athletes or in combat
★ stoic characters cracking around the edges
★ casual touching and physical affection (between friends and/or romantic partners)
★ non-penetrative sex (don't feel like you have to include smut, though)
★ banter and/or banter during sex
★ autumn and/or winter themes and/or storms
★ canon compliance is great but not required
★ gen- and ship-based works are equally awesome (gen about any of my favourite characters would be lovely; I've listed pairings below, too, in case you want to go that route with either romantic/sexual or platonic relationships)

★ for Silm/LotR I also like fourth-age settings and/or reunions
★ for YOI I also like skaters on the ice together (practicing, performing, or just goofing around)
★ for SSSS I also like atmospheric creepiness and/or the aftermath of combat

★ I'm not great at prompting for art but I do love b&w or limited/muted colour palettes

★ some much-loved pairings are
      ★ Glorfindel/Erestor/Haldir in any combination, Finrod/Maglor, Aegnor/Andreth, Aredhel/Elenwë, Arwen/Tauriel
      ★ Otabek/JJ/Leo in any combination, Otabek/Yuri, Christophe/Victor, Leo/Guang-Hong/Phichit in any combination
      ★ Reynir/Onni, Emil/Lalli, Tuuri/OFC, Aksel/Sigrun

DNWs:

★ character bashing (breaking up a canon couple for a different ship is fine, but please don't bash and/or vilify the leftover character in the process)
★ homophobia
★ non-con, dub-con, infidelity (open relationships are fine), D/s, BDSM, kinks involving bodily fluids, humiliation, A/B/O, mpreg
★ non-canon character death (canon or OCs is fine), animal harm
★ marriage proposals and/or ceremonies
★ high school/coffeeshop/etc. AU, non-canon genders or pronouns

And that's it. I hope something sparks for you.

[personal profile] moetushie
Hey! Gimme prompts. Fandoms likely to be filled: Greek myths, Shakespeare (?! to be warned my taste in WS is more broad than deep), the Silm (but I’m pretty eh about that lately – I just can’t seem to get in the right mindset for it), my beloved sports animes, the pretentious gay British novels that I love, and whatever else you want to throw at me.

If I don’t know the fandom, I will make a sincere effort to make something up. :D

The more people whine and caterwaul about wanting Hillary Clinton to exit the national stage and slink back into the woods, never to be heard from again, the more I hope she does stick around and keeps having opinions.

[personal profile] moetushie
HELLO HELLO MY SPOOKY FRIEND. Thank you for writing something for me in this, the most wonderful time of year (of course I mean the run up to Halloween -- I love autumn THE MOST, friend, THE MOST.)

I'm going to give you a quick and dirty version of this letter because I literally decided to sign up today, thanks peer pressure because life is short! Shorter, if you follow my prompts. Let's go!

Likes: I adore stories that dig deeper into characters and situations than the canon had a chance to -- revealing hidden sides to familiar characters and familiarities among strangers. I like AUs -- especially canon-divergent AUs. Those are the best. Slash, femslash, het -- I love it all. Gen, in the form of casefic especially, is adored.

Porn is very much welcome, but certainly not a requirement.

My kink-tastes are on the milder side, and mostly I loved things that denote intimacy the most. Hand-holding, hair-washing, face-touching -- things that make me swoon. I like banter, talking during sex, awkward sex, funny sex. Love mixed with tragedy is my jam, as is friends-to-lovers (or it's more intense cousin, enemies to friends to lovers.) But if you want to go hard, go darker -- I tell you go for it.

I love rich, descriptive writing, but given the short length requirements for this exchange, something short and sweet would delight me as well.

DNWs: Rape/non-con, domestic violence/abuse.

YOI, Dracula, Harry Potter, Northanger Abbey, Frontier Wolf, Original Works, Twelfth Night & Penny Dreadful. )

I was majorly, majorly sick following Labor Day. I have no idea what triggered it, but on Wednesday (ironically, after a doctor's appointment when I felt great and received some welcome news), I caught a chill (probably on the bus, which is FREEZINGLY COLD in the mornings, I don't understand why it needs to be that cold) or from the man with a hacking cough sitting behind me on the hell bus that HE DID NOT BOTHER TO COVER. Why do people do this. This is not your home, this is public transport. OTHER PEOPLE NEED TO BREATH THE AIR TOO.

Anyway. The week was terrible! I barely survived! Even yesterday I was feeling crummy. But today I'm feeling so much more human, thank God. I marked off a couple of things on my to-do list. First, I went grocery shopping -- split between Aldi and Kroger. I thought, as I always do when I go to Aldi, why don't I shop at Aldi more often? The milk prices are consistently the lowest around. (After a brief flirtation with going non-dairy, I'm back -- well, sort of. I need something for my smoothies, and skim milk has more nutrients (esp protein) than my beloved but expensive almond milk.) But Aldi is -- well, it's located at an awkward spot on the highway and closes early. Plus, I have to think ahead and make sure I have reusable bags in my car. (I'm trying to solve this problem by just keeping some in my car, but I'm really inconsistent about it.)

Anyway. I also worked on the last chapter of Assault to Abjury (conveniently shortened to Ass2Ab on GDocs) -- it's currently at 3K and probably will be 6-7K when all's said and done. I last updated it two years ago, but I got a comment on it this week. It's my most subscribed WIP on AO3. I have been completely unable to finish it for years. I'm not sure the direction I'm going in will please the readers, but hey, that's the risk of following WIPs, right? (This is why I don't follow WIPs myself, haha.)

And DONE: Yuletide noms! Here they are:

?! Atlanta (TV 2016)
Characters
?! Earnest 'Earn' Marks
?! Darius (Atlanta (TV 2016))
?! Alfred 'Paper Boi' Miles
?! Van (Atlanta (TV 2016))

?! The Innocents (1961)
Characters
?! Miss Giddens (The Innocents)
?! Flora (The Innocents)
?! Miles (The Innocents)
?! Miss Jessel (The Innocents)

?! Sakamichi no Apollon | Kids on the Slope
Characters
?! Nishimi Kaoru
?! Kawabuchi Sentarou
?! Mukae Ritsuko
?! Katsuragi Junichi

I had a brief moment of annoyance when AO3 wouldn't let me save Darius (Atlanta) and Van (Atlanta) because those tags were already in the tagset under Wonder Woman (2017) (sidebar: HOW?!) -- even though Darius (Atlanta) is already a canonical tag for Atlanta's Darius -- I know because I wrote the only fic in this fandom, featuring Darius but. Sigh. I don't know how AO3 or Yuletide works. I hate clunky character tags, thanks to my time in the Silm fandom. >:(

Kids eat free

New York City will be offering free school lunches for all 1.1 million of its students [NYT article, in case you're counting your free articles] -- and this a very, very good thing. I hope more cities/counties around the country will offer this to their students. Full stomachs can lead to full minds.

I was also a recipient of the free/reduced lunch program for most of my 1-12 school existence (I skipped kindergarten because I'm just that cool or maybe that explains my poor social skills, anyway) and it was certainly something. Both of my parents worked full time -- they were also college students, and money was always tight. Most of the kids in my elementary school got free/reduced lunches -- we all had pin numbers to punch in when it came time to pay, so it was easy to tell who had to punch in and who would pay with cash or with preloaded cards. M

ost of the time, I didn't see it as a humiliation, as seems to be the norm in stories like this. I knew I was poor. So were my friends. We lived in the Section 8 housing down the the hill from the school, we knew we were poor. Lunch was lunch. It was ... kind of terrible because we didn't have Michelle Obama repping for us. I'll always have a deep-seated hatred for tomato soup (aka pure liquid acid) thanks to the school lunches I've eaten.

My school also have free/reduced price breakfast, which must've been a godsend for my parents. I remember being bundled off, nice and snug, and sent up the frozen hill to have breakfast (a styrofoam cup of oatmeal, a piece of fruit and the ever present carton of milk) before classes started.

I was still on free lunches when my family moved from our working class neighborhood (and I should mention that while 'working class' seems to be code for 'white working class' in the US -- our neighborhood in St. Paul was mostly people of color who worked, God, they worked so hard to keep their heads above the water) to the tony white suburb for my high school days, I realized that people noticed and minded that I had free lunches. I hated the stares I would get when lining up to get lunch. I hate people knowing that I was too poor to go out with the rest of the kids to get Chinese from the nearby restaurant. After all, I didn't have a car either -- I walked to school (it was a half a mile one way -- really good exercise that I never quite appreciated.)

Sometime during my junior year of high school, the free lunch program got cut. Or I didn't qualify anymore. I stopped eating lunch at school. Instead, during lunch time, I'd go to the library and read (I once scared a librarian by lounging about, reading In Cold Blood carelessly), or log into one the computers and play Neopets. (I knew I was too old for Neopets, but --) I subsisted on Altoids and water in the vague hopes that it makes me thin and interesting (it did not) -- it was fucked up and dumb, but I was seventeen and all I could think of was that at least those kids won't stare at me anymore.

Of course, not having free lunch screwed me over in other ways -- kids on the free/reduced lunch program got reduced rates for the ACT and SAT (so given the choice, I took the ACT -- no big Eastern colleges for me) and the AP tests (I still managed to take and get good results for Bio, English Lit & Comp, Stats & Chem tho.) It taught me a lesson about financial management, at least -- in college I was meticulous about getting my FAFSA, complete and early.

So, yeah, long story short -- free lunches are good! Getting rid of the stigma is good! Kids deserve to be nourished, both their minds and bodies! High-schoolers should not be playing with Neopets!

Thank you for reading. ♥
