So dreamwidth is important and good for my mental wellness, but my reading page had gotten to that point of "too overwhelming to actually check it regularly." I did a pretty brutal reading page purge, which I need at least for a bit until it's a more regular part of my routine again. No hard feelings intended, just, brains why are they the way they are I don't even know?

Short Fiction

A Dead Djinn in Cairo is AMAZING and I want to read all the things in this alternate universe. Supernatural mystery set in Cairo that wasn't colonized because of the introduction of magic. Fatma is the daughter of a clockmaker, a detective, and wears suits. Some queer content. Beautifully written.

A Cup of Salt Tears creepy kappa short story that is also very good. cn for kappa's being dubious about consent, and some horror elements

Political, some content notes apply

Stitch Maps are a new kind of knitting chart that show the shape of the fabric you are supposed to be making. Much easier for (at least) my brain. Maybe yours too?

[personal profile] maramcreates introduced me to Lily Allen and I've been enjoying her entire discography. In particular I think Never Gonna Happen should be the anthem for the Awkward Army. Fuck You is a good 2016 anthem. (Both youtube links have lyrics and are somewhat explicit, fyi.)

how terrifying our capacity to go on
how awful and awe-full
no wonder the imagination shies away
from echoing this uncanny strength

contradictions increase us
in carving so many hollows aching
to be filled

- Load-Bearing

Chilling cold, lack of light - literal and otherwise - are draining conditions. I find there are small tweaks I can make to my environment and routine to help myself cope: good smells, strong colors, powerful tastes.

It's been two months since I started my new job; it feels like a year since the election, or no time at all (sometimes both, which makes my heart race). The small habits of pause and supporting joys I'd built into my schedule for the job transition seem even more crucial now for sustaining my sense of identity and capacity amid a deluge of post-election uncertainty.
