alexseanchai: 11-round crochet granny square, red center through grape edge (rainbow granny square)
So there are friending memes and things going around and people might see me around and want to get to know me a little! Therefore, this post. (Which is edited from its initial version, because I decided to turn it into my sticky post.)

I am increasingly posting almost everything under lock instead of publicly. I do not particularly care for this change, but certain persons who I do not care to name make it necessary.

I tend to grant access in sporadic batches, after I have got to know people well enough to recognize your respective handles. I realize this is an approach that, in combination with the previous paragraph, makes it difficult to make friends.

A note about journal rules: Don't be ableist. Don't be racist. Don't be sexist or homophobic or transphobic or or or or. I'm not perfect on any of these issues, I admit, but to the best of your ability, keep the bigotry out of my journal.

I am:

...right, I wanted—say, you know what would be nice? If my tablet had not abruptly decided COPY DOESN'T WORK—"Peace and Love, Inc. - Information Society (Song)". And I'd still like stories for "Mary Mary - SJ Tucker (Song)" and "Mother of the Crows - Seanan McGuire (Song)", and a particular bit of "Earthquake Weather - Seanan McGuire (Song)", and wait shit. I'm only allowed three noms...

In other news, survived the move. (I could have sworn I told DW that but my journal disagrees.) Dear Gods do I wish I'd remembered I possess Bengay, Aspercreme, and Icy Hot yesterday.

If everyone who does this sort of thing could send me strength / healing energy today, I would very much appreciate it. There will be PEOPLE. Including PARENTS. And MANY LOTS DECISIONS. To say nothing of PHYSICALLY TRANSPORTING ALL THIS CRAP.

I'm not even done packing... /o\

Every time I watch Disney's 1991 Beauty and the Beast, I spy a detail I missed before. This time, it's the asylum director's little giving-orders hand wave right before his minions grab Maurice.

Ran out of that, switched to Mulan. Belatedly occurs to me, the first character we meet, the wall guard who lights the signal fire? Died five seconds after Shan Yu said "Perfect."

Astronomers Without Borders eclipse glasses donation program

don't throw away your eclipse glasses! mail them to Astronomers Without Borders, or deliver them to the nearest organization (most likely a local school) collecting them for AWB, so that students in South America and Africa can safely watch the next eclipse!

The blood bank emailed me: A+ donors needed. (Guess my blood type.) It has in fact been over eight weeks since I donated last.

Problem: I am fucking moving. I do not have enough physical cope as it is. Blood donation knocks me the fuck over!

I need extra hands around here. Preferably attached to strong arms, steely spines, and sturdy legs, with a head on those shoulders that can intuit what I need to happen better than I can either intuit or explain the things.

In lieu of this (because TELEPORTER!!! *shakes fist*, and also all my immediate family are Occupied Elsewhere today):

Would any y'all who believe in and understand how to accomplish the "sending healing energy over a distance" thing please do the thing for me? Not necessarily healing, though I wouldn't exactly say no to that; strength, resilience, anything that you have to spare at the moment and that you think I could use in order to get all my stuff moving-ready and the apartment sparkly clean. Protective and cleansing energies would also be welcome.

If you want to do a trade, drop me a comment with a prompt: a single word, a brief phrase, a song lyric, an evocative image. After I'm all moved, I'll stitch all the prompts into a story and post it for all y'all to see. :)

*waves to somebody who may not wish to be named* So many coffees! Thank you!

Can someone—who has got more brain to think of google terms than I have presently got—point me at moving-out checklists? Apartment-departing–specific if possible?

I am still raising money for auto repairs. More urgently, I would very much like to be able to buy pizza and coffee to keep me operating all week while I'm frantically packing and cleaning for moving, instead of making coffee and assorted meals.

All fiction requests will be delayed until Tue Aug 29 at the earliest. Please say how urgent all divination requests are; if they are not urgent, they will be similarly delayed. Etsy orders I'll get out the door promptly. If you want to commission jewelry or artwork, we can talk, but the same delay applies. Redbubble orders are on Redbubble's schedule.

If you signal-boost this and let me know you've done it, I'll do 100 words of fiction to your request, one small art to your request, or one divination card-equivalent—no earlier than Tue Aug 29.

Fiction to Buyer's Prompt
Current Etsy will be put on vacation Thursday
Older Etsy will be put on vacation Thursday

Did I ever tell you about my high school Latin teacher? Ms. Kit Smoot. Studying with her I learned so much and had such fun and—

I wanted to tell her so many things, about how she helped get me to where I am today. But when I visited the school she was never there.

She died last night.

(I hadn't realized she meant so much to me.)

May her memory be eternal.
alexseanchai: Disney's Belle reading in a chair, sideways (Belle reading)
Headcanon: Belle and Beast are both queer as fuck.

In fact that's part of the reason for the Gaston shitshow—in the animated, that is, I have only seen the live-action once and I was too busy yelling about LeFou after to think of anything like this—anyway. Belle would rather have one of the blonde triplets than Gaston, though frankly that's not much of a choice if none of the four have anything interesting-to-Belle to talk about! And Gaston kind of knows all of that! But Belle's bi, not lesbian. Beast? Also bi.

I was always told by people that I'm a leader or should be, and for me being a leader always meant that wherever possible, never ask of people what you are not willing to do yourself. I can't ask people to give me emotional labour, or support, or help, unless I'm willing to give it as well.

To me a leader is someone who does what they can to make sure everyone in the "community" is happy, healthy, and safe, to the best of my ability. It's not about getting my own way, or having everyone do what I want, but putting the needs of the community first in such a way as to make everyone succeed.

Sometimes that means being forceful or aggressive, but more often than not it is about offering support, assistance, and then getting out of the way. It's about helping other people get a chance in the spotlight.

Tablet fuckery is achieving new levels. I am really fucking sick of Amazon customer service, though! And I do not fucking have money for a new fucking tablet! It's not supposed to be on the priority list! *screaming*

...remind me to go see if an Android tablet exists that's at least as good specs as the Kindle Fire I'd want to replace this with, for less money.

But I HAVE to be able to store my Kindle library on the SD card and I'm not sure non-Kindle Androids can do that...

One of KM Weiland's pieces of advice in Outlining Your Novel (though this is actually in chapter "Before You Begin Your Outline") is:

"If you could have a professional reviewer read your idealized concept of your finished book and totally get it—completely understand everything you're trying to say with your characters, plot, dialogue, and themes—what would he write about your story?"

And then you, being specific, thorough, and extravagant, are that reviewer.

OKAY THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN wait how do I do that
