There has been so much DOING OF THINGS in the last few months and I’d really like to document it. In an attempt to make sure (a) I actually do that and (b) that it’s not too unwieldy, or rather totally unreadable, I’m gonna steal [personal profile] copperbadge’s Three Things format: three bullet points and an extra per item.

Three Things Make a Post...

...because my brain is too wiped to think of five things.
  1. [personal profile] bookherd and her entourage came to town last weekend and stayed with us. Among other things, we did this:


    Sparkler Bomb 2017 from Sanguinity on Vimeo.


  2. Also last weekend, I woke up to find that [tumblr.com profile] nitefise-art made gorgeous art for Nostoi. I am giddy with delight. Look how beautiful that is.

    BTW, that's two-for-two on fanart for my 'dinosaur' stories. I don't think I ever mentioned it here, but [deviantart.com profile] mommacabbit/[tumblr.com profile] cephalopodqueen did a scientific illustration of the birdosaurs in Holocene Park. I grin and grin whenever I look at it.

    The making-of on those two pieces were very different, at least from my end: Cephalopodqueen consulted heavily with me, asking for my inspirations and references, while Nitefise-art went entirely their own way, revising the particulars of the scene for a bolder visual. I love both works entirely.

    While I'm on the topic, it really does seem to be "cracky premise + critter" that inspires the artists, at least where my stories are concerned. C.f. SPACE BEES by [tumblr.com profile] language-escapes for THE BEST BEE FIC ON MARS. I have absolutely no complaints about this phenomenon -- if anything, it makes me want to write MOAR cracky-premise-plus-critter stories. Fanart is such a frickin' joy. :-D

  3. And a photo I promised [personal profile] scfrankles:

    A medium with an ectoplasmic bird on his head; from "Clairvoyance and Materialisation" (1927) by Gustave Géley
    FIG. 97 — WARSAW EXPERIMENTS: A BIRD FORM
    from Gustave Géley, Clairvoyance and Materialisation, 1927
    (translation of L'Ectoplasmie et la Clairvoyance)


    The photograph is the inspiration for this scene in The Land of Mist:
    'The bird!' said an awestruck whisper. )

    Doyle says in his endnotes, about this photo and the seance report that went with it: "It would take the credulity of a MacCabe to imagine that all this is imposture."

London Pride 2017

So London Pride was amaaaaazing, as ever :D I showed up at 3 to start marching at 4, because London Pride is massive and our streets are narrow so even Section C didn’t get started for a good three hours. I marched with the National Union of Teachers - I was with two of my best friends, who’re both in the NUT, and my god I’d like to be unionised. So it was me, Violet and the Dark Lady (this was their first married Pride! ♥), Miss Godfrey, and Miss Godfrey’s lovely colleague and his husband. Lovely Colleague is a newly-qualified teacher and has been told Miss Godfrey is a bad influence (their school is a HORRORSHOW to the extent that Miss Godfrey is probably about to blow the whistle on SATS-results-fiddling). His lovely Korean husband was having his FIRST PRIDE EVER and they both clearly had a blast.

shoot me down, I won't fall )
