1. Days when it is not yet dark out at 9pm. I mean, it's no longer daylight? But it's not completely dark.

2. Watching the sky change. My wee solar-powered lights against the backdrop of the changing evening sky.

3. Glass of rosé. I think this may be the Summer of Rosé for me.

4. Having an ARC of a book I am totally totally psyched to read. (Alas I am exhausted and am not going to stay up to read it tonight, but I have hopes of reading more of it tomorrow.)

5. I got my ticket to Vividcon! I'll be there Thurs-Mon this year, and I already can't wait.

books
Harry Potter Day (HP20) was Monday, so I cracked open the first volume and reread some of it. I'd forgotten about McGonnagal trying to argue Dumbledore out of leaving H with the Dursleys after she'd done all the Dursley recon that Dumbledore chose not to. *imagines a verse where she and her extended family raised Harry in Scotland, reading to him from Hogwarts: a History every night of his wee childhood and putting him on a training broom at age 3* She would have been the best gran ever. (I don't suppose this exists, does it?)

volunteering
Vol gig continues, and lately I've been getting to use my atrophied Spanish skills. Luckily, most Spanish-speakers know a little English or have a bilingual kid with them, so together we've managed to get their questions answered and I've learned some new words. I'm also finding it interesting how often people approach me for help rather than the actual employees. I mean, they don't know I'm a volunteer instead of an employee. Maybe I look especially harmless? Happy to be there? IDK.

I'm working on an epic something for Independence Day and I am so excited! I forget how much I love turning a photo into a 3D yarn thing. Also, this has been super-therapeutic against this week's horrible news cycle.

On Juneteenth, I managed to trip, fall and fracture my left wrist. Fast forward to yesterday, where I went to orthopedist, got the awful splint off and went home with a purple cast.

Of the good:
  • The cast is way more comfy than the splint.
  • Doc says my break was clean and simple & should heal easily.

Still frustrating:
  • Most life tasks like showering, dressing/undressing, typing 1-handed, not being able to bake/cook/cut my own food.
    • I can't bloody work on any of my writing projects. ::WAILS::

But, that said, it could've been a lot worse.

I go back to ortho in 4 weeks & hopefully can graduate from cast to removable brace.

Wow, I haven't actually logged into this thing in... I don't know how long. I don't know how many of you are still around these parts but... *wave?*

Basically, seeing so many people talking about Harry Potter's 20th Anniversary had me thinking about my beginnings and fandom. The friends I made, how I grew as a writer. I know there are a lot of you that I still speak to outside of the LJ community and I think it's a real testament to how pervasive fandom is and how it truly does connect all of us. That so many of us grew beyond the pseudonyms and let each other into our lives.

Harry Potter did that for us. It was a common ground. It let those of us who were weirdos in our own little world find other weirdos and realize... we weren't that weird after all. That we had people. That we weren't alone in the world. For some of us who were unpopular in school, it was such a refuge.

As Harry Potter turned to Torchwood/Doctor Who (for me any way), it brought me to meet a whole new host of people. To meet creators that eight-year-old me could never have expected I would be friends with writers and actors and costume designers. To actually KNOW people who put shows on TV and write movies and comics. To count some of them among my closest friends. It's quite a feeling really.

I've spent most of my day re-watching Torchwood while working my day job. Missing my first ever cosplay and the people I met because of it. Missing RP because god knows I don't actually have time to write when the aforementioned day job runs me ragged.

So today turned into revisiting fandoms and nostalgia and all sorts of other good things. So if any of you felt that same wave of nostalgia and decided to come back to LJ today... please say hi. I know I've missed you all. ♥
turlough: confrontation between Party Poison & Korse (Gerard Way & Grant Morrison), SING video, Oct 2010 ((mcr) you’re here with me)
[personal profile] turlough
Gerard can't find Observation Room 4, and after a few minutes of aimless wandering, and several dirty looks from people he keeps passing over and over, he finally asks someone.

"Korse went that way," the guy answers, before Gerard can get his question all the way out. It makes him a little paranoid that this guy already knows who Gerard is looking for.

"Thanks, Mikey," he says.

"Michael," the guy corrects, and Gerard sees it clearly on the nametag clipped to his shirt.

"Sorry," Gerard says, "I don't know why I -" and then he trails off. The guy stares at him, and scowls. Gerard hurries off in the direction he pointed, and finds Korse, looking at his watch.

"Close the door," Korse says, when Gerard steps into the room. As soon as the door clicks shut behind him, Korse says, "Come here, Gerard."

Soul bonds happen. Most of the time, in the vastness of the world, it doesn't amount to anything. Sometimes it does. Sometimes you meet your soul mate.

Sometimes you meet both of them.

At the same time.

Tomorrow I get more injections, yay! PT, ottoman, and building hip muscle are helping my feet. Not eating or speaking is helping my jaw -- which is not tenable, obvsly, ergo the excitement over more injections.

1. My mirpesset. I love, love, love having this little balcony.

2. The wind chime hanging there.

3. The herb garden in a window box there.

4. The pretty string of solar-powered LED lights I just festooned there, to bring sparkle to the long evenings.

5. Sunshine, blue sky, sweet breeze, greenery all around.
