Wow, it's been forever since I've posted. Hi! It's been a hunker-down-and-get-through kinda year -- not all negative, but energy-intensive. I didn't even sign up for Yuletide, for the first time ever, and while I was sad to lose my streak, I don't regret taking this one off. I'm also prone to retreating into my own head in stressful times, and uh, hello present day.

But enough is enough, so I'm going to see if I can re-set my sociability a bit and get to posting more. Maybe even creating things, that would be nice. Maybe fight some fascism.

I'm going to jump on the bandwagon and do a January posting meme thing. I'll try to post every day, and if there's anything you want me to write about, feel free to leave a comment, with or without a requested date.

Yaaaaaaay!

Okay lemme quickly brainstorm some random questions, and if you feel like talking about any of them, plz do.

What do you like to see in a very long story? (If too abstract a question--what sorts of very-long stories have you liked best, what sorts of plots, tropes, content, pacing, approach...?)

What about in a very-short story?

What is the most obscure thing you wish there were a story for?

Have you re-read any zines anytime lately? Which ones? Any thoughts to share?

Been reading any books? Tell us about them!

What helps you get in the mindset to create? Certain approaches, rituals, objects, thoughts?

Do you think it would be possible to have a story, written today, centered around the Night Court episode "Best of Friends", or would the period-accurate (& therefore sometimes transphobic) handling of some of it make it a non-starter or drawerfic?

Drawerfic: do you have any? Did you ever?


...are you sorry you asked for topics? :D

wah, I just noticed your icon! I loved that episode so much when I was just a wee fangirl who didn't really know what hurt/comfort was yet, but I knew I liked THAT. ♥

Me tooooo! It was a 2-parter of episodes, "Dan's Operation" 1 and 2, and is just chock-full of H/C catnip for people like us. :D

Oh, and P.S., yeah I dig you about skipping Yuletide. I skipped it in 2008 for grad-school-related reasons & stressors, and I felt kind of down about it, but I also felt I had to. Hey, it's not like we'd get a prize for being entirely uninterrupted. :D

Do you want to talk a little about Person of Interest? I still love that season 1-2 vid from back in the day, and I drifted away from the show after season two (but I'm thoroughly spoiled for the ending and always kind of meant to come back to it), so I'd be interested in hearing your impressions of the show overall, or whether you stopped watching at a later point, whether it ended up being satisfying or a massive disappointment, or whatever.

Or, if that doesn't appeal as a topic: How has changing technology affected your vidding over time?

I'm so happy to see you here and posting. It is my resolution to post more also, though I am not sure I can post every single day this month. I, too, want to be more sociable and perhaps reconnect with fen and fandom.

What have you been reading lately?

I'm always interested in hearing about people's Bulletproof Tropes -- the tropes that tend to pique your interest in something regardless of the medium (and occasionally regardless of its execution). I talked about some of mine a while ago here, so I'm curious to see if you have any tropes that you'd consider bulletproof?
