Summary:

Adrien catches their hand. "What are you doing?" he whispers, and Ladybug looks up: darkened eyes, flushed face, wrinkled brow. Like he wants them. But he's not quite sure.

"I heard you playing Fuck Marry Kill," Ladybug says, pitched low and with a slow smile. (It's true; Marinette did.) "I heard you want to fuck me."

Adrien sputters a moment, and looks up and west, biting his lip, and down at them again. "Are you offering?"

"Well," says Ladybug, and moves to lift their hand away from his hipbone. "If you don't want to..."

(Three minutes.)

It has been A Further Wholeass Saga that I... am not up to detailing at the moment, but: I have been fitted for silver ring splints and am waiting for the kind folks who fitted me to poke my insurance to find out what, if anything, they will deign to pay for! We'll see. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

(I mean, my odds are better than most Americans' are: my insurance is less inclined to immediately deny everything on first blush than most, as it is a PPO paid for entirely by my spouse's employer. I still don't rate my odds high, but it's always worth trying.)

Anyway!

Having tracked this down, myself, I figure I will share it: if you're in the Phoenix metropolitan area and you are looking to be fitted for silver ring splints: you want an appointment with Reese (or Rhys? I didn't see his name written down, just heard it spoken, so I cannot attest to its spelling) at the downtown Phoenix Hanger Clinic location. He's the fellow at the clinic who specialises in that sort of thing and has done most of the fittings for them.

1) Hey look, somebody ([twitter.com profile] ValoryPierce) did a fan film production of Solitude starring Émilie Agreste. Beautiful work. Visuals precisely on point for what we saw of it in "Gorizilla", too.

2) I bet this is relevant to [personal profile] chanter_greenie's interests.

3) ...wait shit

4) sooo Chanter, want me to describe the visuals for you? (it is not worth your click otherwise, the audio is literally a few minutes of piano with some rain, some footsteps, and a couple bakery-door-just-opened bells.) I will probably do a shitty job of it, mind you.

5) video description )

AO3 lawyers on the EU digital single market directive, which is one of the more readable explanations about Article 13 (now actually Article 15, just for extra confusion) I've come across.

An NPR article about Inuit parenting and the use of play and non-violence to help children learn emotional regulation. The approach makes sense to me, but working out to put even some of it into practice is hard (not least, rewriting my own ingrained habits of response).

This long interview with Lexi Alexander, one of the few women directors working in Hollywood, has lots of absolutely fascinating stuff about film technique, and an overall theme of "technical choices have societal consequences", which of course is relevant to my own field of software development. I was also struck by her reflection on being "one of the boys" without deliberately intending to do so (also relevant to my field), about what's the point of having more women leaders if they replicate the same unfairnesses as men do. I was reminded of Reni Eddo-Lodge's line in Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race, "when [white feminism] has won, things will look much the same. Injustice will thrive, but there will be more women in charge of it."

Language Is Weird (A Story)

Lo, these many years ago I went to a summer camp, and in that summer camp I studied Latin.

I lived in the dorm that contained the dining hall for the camp (which was located between two wings of residential spaces) and thus in the morning would come bouncing down the stairs to the double doors (of course now my brain wants to say πύλαι and that is the WRONG SUMMER CLASS, thank you brain for reiterating the punchline before I'm done with the story) to go in and hunt food.

These were opaque doors with little portholes that were positioned for college students, not younger kids, and thus it was tricky to see the other side of them.

So one morning, I came down the stairs, I approached the πύλαι, and it opened abruptly as one of my classmates came out, nearly clocking me in the face.

They were very apologetic.

I, meanwhile, had a massive language glitch, and after about fifteen seconds of 'words do not work at all', spluttered out, "Ianua mala me oppugnat!"*

This got me deemed weird but kind of talented, I guess? We learned past tense that day, so I think it was "Ianua mala me oppugnavit" that made it onto the class t-shirt...

Language runs in weird channels.

* )

Anyway this story brought to you by making dinner, cutting onions, and muttering "Cepa mala me oppugnat."

Herein you'll find more than you may have ever wanted to know about what my uterus has been doing lately.  If that's information that you think you could live more happily without, this would be a great time to keep scrolling.

I'll even keep it spoiler free - and not only because I can't be bothered to remember how to do a lj-cut.

Suffice it to say that I really enjoyed it, found it a satisfying ending to 10+ years of films (which, yes, I rewatched all of before this) and am definitely going to see it a few more times.

Possibly not in a double feature with Infinity War though because that was a seriously long time to sit in a cinema seat last night.

Am feeling slightly restless/discontented at the moment. The summery weather at the weekend was lovely and I did get some gardening in, but I also did a lot of lounging around reading when there was stuff that I should have been getting on with really. Work has felt a little fraught this week due to the fallout from a mistake (someone else's, but it's just leading to a slightly constrained atmosphere). I've also struggled to get out of the office with time to go to the gym this week, so I need to get back to being much more strict about that. I guess it's just a feeling that I've slacked off an little and need to get back moving again.

2019/39: A Wrinkle in Time -- Madeleine L'Engle
‘Oh, we don’t travel at the speed of anything.’ Mrs Whatsit explained earnestly. ‘We tesser. Or you might say, we wrinkle.’ [p. 58]


Incredibly, I had never read this classic work: and I wish I had first encountered it when I was less cynical.

Requirements to participate are minimal: one complete smut fic or artwork with a title named after a Pokémon move/attack.
thanks [personal profile] sylvaine!

The Magicians had a fourth season finale a little while ago. You can still see the fires burning over in that corner of fandom, and for good reason. I'm going to be linking to pieces written about the finale that do a far better job of summarizing what happened and what went terribly wrong with that idea. Those pieces, and my summaries and commentaries of them, have content warnings for suicidal ideation, completed suicide, and mental illness at the very least, so this may be something to avoid if you have seen enough, or you do not want to engage. The rest of this post is going under cut.

The Fourth Season Finale of The Magicians, and why we could have seen it coming, thanks to Joss Whedon. )
