allchildren: kay eiffel's face meets the typewriter (⍰ is our king)
I recently read Ursula Le Guin's The Dispossessed, and now I am disappointed in all other things because it is becoming clear to me that over the last two or three years I've developed an affliction with regards to fiction that is gradually rendering me a gibbering mass of contrariness.

I believe Homer Simpson best summed my issue up with his timeless epigram, "Beer: the cause of, and solution to, all life's problems." Only in my case we will swap out beer (which causes me no problems other than in its sad dearth) for "rich people."

here I go, talking about everything again )

ironic icon choice is ironic (oh eleven, ilu but don't think i wouldn't put you in the pandorica myself, i mean really)
allchildren: kay eiffel's face meets the typewriter (☢ and he was screaming)
After my first year of Yuletide (wherein I defaulted, and then ended up writing the pinch hit for the assignment I defaulted on), I have been determined to never be that silly again, but 2009 and 2010 Yuletide were both much, much more challenging than that first year, which just goes to show you that, uh ... writing is hard? I'm good at finding new ways to make Yuletide way harder for myself than it should be? #ITSAPROCESS?

And still for some reason I persevere! My story this year was Sincerely, Cindi. (Metropolis: The Chase Suite - Janelle Monae)

And now, I would like to discuss my Yuletide ~process. Seriously. Not even the fic. I barely talk about the actual finished fic. This is like nine thousand words on just the fucking process.


this may seem wordy now, but later you will miss it. you will miss my sweet brevity. )

Finally: An Assignment!

research and robofeminism and philosophy and theology and oh my god she's not going to shut up, is she??? )

But hey, maybe I'll write a robofeminist antiracist postcolonialist dissertation one of these days after all! OR MAYBE THIS GIANT, GIANT ENTRY SHALL HAVE TO SUFFICE

You know... consuming a drink that contained caffeinated soda was perhaps not the smartest choice I made last night. I don't know. It is possible.
