tsukinofaerii: Shields are NOT for throwing! (Shields are not for throwing!)
So I post here a day late and a dollar short lately. Blame work's new filtering system. (They've blocked off their own Facebook page. I've taken the liberty of pointing this out, but either no one has the authority to fix it or no one knows how.) Highlights of RL, for anyone keeping score:
  • Father attempted Emotional Blackmail to get me to move to Arkansas. I shut him down. We may or may not be talking again, IDK.
  • Mary's health, mental and physical, is Not Good. Not sure what's going on there specifically, but her last stroke had some personality-changing affects. :\
  • In similar vein, Mary is refusing to ditch Richard again. This means she and Papa may be stuck in Chicago forever. :| Fuck.
  • Dogs ate one of the cockatiels. All I found was a pile of slightly bloody feathers. Fortunately, I wasn't very attached, but a Replacement Goldfish is in order. Papa probably won't notice?
  • New phone does well. Battery life is still an issue, but I'm working on that. It hasn't died on me yet at least.
  • Non-eaten pets also do well, though I'm still working on training and getting Georgie off to his new home.


Otherwise, I am reveling in being fic free for the moment. Sure, I have a bunch of stuff in need of editing, pretty soon I'll be started on Echo Bazaar again, and my fingers are already itching for words my brain is too fried to come up with. But for the moment, nothing is due. Wallow wallow wallow.

I'm really happy with how my RBB came out. My artist was amazing and [personal profile] valtyr twisted my arm until it wasn't horrible. The size was painful and the world building tough, but I'm really, really happy with it. (And someone commented on the matriarchy. Eeeee! I wasn't sure how well that came through!) I think I learned a lot about plausibility and getting different character arcs to intersect outside the story, which is something I never really considered before. The stuff I planned out for the Marias, the war, the dragons, Wanda and historic backstory that were only hinted or were dropped completely at could fill books. I keep telling everyone that this is like book two in a trilogy. Maybe some day I'll write the Maria Prior's story. Not sure if I'll write about what comes after though; it's sort of a generational thing, and that would drop square into OC/original territory for the main character.

Now! Freshly stolen from [personal profile] derryderrydown... a meme! My top ten stories on AO3, by hit count. Worth noting, I did a lot of catch-up posting in batches, so sometimes dates are weird.
Click me! You know you wanna. )
