Other things that have been occupying my mind:

* BREAKING NEWS: after more than a decade of sharehouse living, I finally have a place of my own! Wow! When I get my act together, I will post photos and stuff! ...mmmmaybe!!

* I also plan to write a post called "A Tale of 16 Housemates" which is exactly what it sounds like, and which will include many moral and improving lessons about what it takes to live in a successful sharehouse. Unfortunately said post is proving to be the length of an encyclopedia, and kinda boring, so most likely it will be Never Actually Finished.

* THE US OPEN. I love tennis. I am so excited. Best sport ever.


* Still into The Winter Soldier. Carry on, as you were...

Two scan-caps from The Mystic Cottager,* 1795, because I can, obv.

The Mystic Cottager, pg 20, published 1795

... ::montage of turning pages:: ...

The Mystic Cottager, pg 33, published 1795

* The title is probably funnier if you're familiar with Brit slang.

- So, what are you doing, thinking, wondering about, reading, watching, making, or writing, that you don't usually post about?

First of all, thank you so much for creating this fanwork for me! Whatever you choose to write/draw for me, I know that I'll love it.

Likes: Women being loving and supportive of each other, AUs where women take a male character's place, porn with plot, humor/snark, stories that touch on the fandom's mythology, case/mission stories, women that start out as enemies but forge a mutual respect that turns into something more, friends to lovers, and character backstories.

Dislikes: Rape/non-con, child abuse (although canon references are okay), intense psychological manipulation, vore, watersports, and scat, (pretty much any sexual kink involving unconventional use of bodily fluids). I like canon divergence AUs (A happens instead of B), but please no highschool/college or coffeeshop AUs.

I'm generally not a fan of antagonistic relationships, ie hatesex. I know I've requested a few pairings, especially Vikings, in which the women are somewhat at odds, but I prefer that they become friends before any sex occurs.

Fandoms )

In terms of art, I don't have many preferences. I'm generally not a fan of chibis, but they're also really cute so draw them if that's what your heart is set on. My tumblr is here if you're interested in seeing the kind of art I reblog.

Please remember that optional details are optional and don't forget to have fun!

Radar had a baby only not really. They only did that episode twice, it can't have been that popular. Radar can't have babies because he's like 12 or something. Actually it took me a long time to realise that he can't drink because he's under 21. (You'd think you'd be old enough to drink before old enough to kill, but you'd be using logics.) Anyway it all worked out in the end. Apparently.

Trapper was like "Have you ever kissed Frank" and Hawkeye said no but he has kissed him at least twice by now actually. Don't worry there is no continuity especially at this point. Like at this point Margaret's father is dead and Hawkeye's mother is alive.

Oh wow now Henry is explaining what happens when Figure A and Figure B love each other very much.

I love this show so much. SO MUCH.
