The Best Pride Block Party Ever

We were well enough to go to our neighborhood Pride block party!

I found a nice shady un-crowded spot near the entrance and the ATM and did free queer tarot readings for folks, using my Thea's Tarot deck, a radical lesbian feminist deck from a local! :D I did maybe a dozen readings, and some of them gave me money.  It let me meet all sorts of new people and chat with them and share this little hint of local queer history with them!

And I got a purple hoodie from a yard sale!  A past owner sewed yellow spikes and purple wings on it, so it is now my SPYRO THE DRAGON HOODIE!  I can't believe I found it for two bucks!

What a great Pride.  And Biff had a great time too!

Working Like Dogs: The Service Dogs Guidebook

We found a book in the library, Working Like Dogs: The Service Dogs Guidebook, by Marcie Davis and Melissa Bunnell.  This book is concise, informative, and I feel it'd be helpful for anyone wanting to learn about service dogs, whether for themselves or a writing project.

Making a post for our own reference later, should we ever forget and wish to return to this title.

Thea's Tarot!

I accidentally found a Thea's Tarot deck at a garage sale for a dollar today!  Apparently it is kind of hard to find and buy now.  I'm excited!  I like it.

LB Commissions Info!

Hey McFly!

You know, these days I wonder if the reason Biff hates all sci-fi and fantasy is just that he's never gotten over Back to the Future.

On the plus side, I can easily revive all the memories of his most annoyed child schoolyard days just by shouting, "HEY MCFLY" at him.

The Lusty Lady

There must be some bibliophilic older queer woman in my neighborhood who keeps dropping her queer books in the free library. Whoever she is, THANK YOU LADY!

From this hypothetical human, I have managed to get my hands on Exile and Pride, a really crappy pink book about multiplicity that I ditched, and now The Lusty Lady which is about the woman-owned peep show by the same name in Seattle. Back in the 90s, a photographer wanted to tell the dancers’ stories, only to be told that if she wanted to get it, she needed to work there. So she did, and the book is made up of her photos and work stories.

I picked the book up because I’ve heard of the Lusty Lady and wanted to learn about it, only to get an awesome reference text of queerness, sex work, and women in the 90s.

Reverend Alpert: The Mother of All Plagues

The Mother of All Plagues
Series: Reverend Alpert
Word Count: 2000
Summary: Perfection and Reverend Alpert encounter something they can't fight.
Notes: This story was sponsored by the Patreon crew, and is the only Alpert story not to be in chronological order; it comes after The Deity of Forever Road and before The Librarian. With this story, the first arc of the Reverend Alpert stories is concluded; the next arc will focus on Most Revered Dorothy Ives.


By now, Perfection had long since learned the rules and rhythms of the road. The days fell into a pattern: she and Alpert would wake, have breakfast (a mix of provisions, supplemented by Perfection’s hunting and Alpert’s gathering), and clean up. Then, while Perfection took down their tent and started packing up, Alpert would cast a direction work.

Music for Bad Days

Huh.  Interesting.

Apparently when I'm in a really bad mental way, the music of PengoSolvent helps.  I randomly grabbed their Leave It Less album, because I liked 'Tangential Friend' and I'm finding it's perky enough to lighten my mood without being grating, and quiet enough to be calming.  I'm not really good at categorizing music, but it's kinda glitchy and quietly ambient, and it makes me think of watching clouds go by.

They also did an Ib song called 'Let's Keep Our Flowers' which I also liked.

'Mother of All Plagues' and 'Ligeia Grows Up'

Hey guys, since the winner of today's poll is a short one, I have a thought!

The Mother of All Plagues isn't really a story suited to expansion like the others.  It was intended to be short.  That leaves a good seventy-five dollars (or 1500 words) free, which seems a shame to waste.  To make up the deficit, I'll be posting a non-fiction essay called Ligeia Grows Up to go with it.

Ligeia Grows Up is about the influence Piers Anthony's work has had on our life, for better or for worse.  Due to the nature of its content, I will not be posting it publicly.  Patreon folks, of course, will get it, but for the rest of you, if you want access to the essay, please let me know, so I can insure you see it.

Thanks so much, guys!  Mother of All Plagues is thankfully the last remnant from the older days when my stories were shorter.  Now my Patreon is at a more reliable level, so I have a better idea of the word count necessary month by month.  Hopefully, things will run pretty smoothly from here on out.

I hope you guys enjoy both works when I post them!

Multi Monday: Counting & Gender

(Not gonna lie guys, I will probably not be able to keep doing this much longer.  I just do not seem able to concentrate, and I also feel weird, like I'm co-opting birch_household's work and trying to make my individual DW into a comm, when I've never really been a mod or comm-making kind of person. x_x)

Counting & Gender     [Mar. 12th, 2007|12:00 am]

1) How many people are in your household/group?

2) What percent are you guys to girls?

3) What gender is the body?

4) How many kids are in your household/group?

5) How many kids come to the front usually?

Virtual Mode: The Sharknotes Version

Okay, okay, so here’s the plot of Virtual Mode, the Piers Anthony book that has made me so fucking mad.

Colene is a fourteen-year-old girl who’s suicidal and has BPD.  The primary expression of both of these things is that she feels a deep craving to tantalize adult men with her body--stripping naked in front of them, flashing them, showing off her boobs, offering to sell her body, that kind of thing.  The first physical characteristic that is described to the reader (besides her slashed up wrists) are her boobs.

Don’t worry, Piers Anthony makes sure to tell you in elaborate detail how hot her tits are.

Rape, incest, and general awfulness behind the cut because Piers Anthony is awful and I AM SO ANGRY. )

Santa's Twins

Okay, okay, so they never tell you this in Christmas time, but Santa and his old lady totally had conjoined twins as kids.

Now, Santa and the missus, they’re cool people right, they want to do right by their kids, but they totally weren’t prepared for this.  So they do what a lot of folks do, right, and they talk to the doctor about what the right thing is to do for their kids.  Should they be separated?  CAN they?

And the doctor says no, they share a digestive tract, there’s no way the kids could be safely separated.  Much better that they live as they are, since they seem pretty okay, just different.  They’ll be all right, because after all: a semicolon can be used between two closely related independent Clauses.
