I FOUND A BOOK MEME
Day 01 – The best book you read this year That’s hard to judge, but thus far I’d have to give it to The Orphan’s Tales: In The Night Garden by Catherynne Valente. Fantastically imaginative collection of interwoven stories in the style of The Arabian Nights.

So, I’m thinking of writing Black Jewels fix-it fic. My life, my choices.
I am so over Sookie and her precious fairy vagina. And her unbelievably STUPID...– Pam (via allisonrichardson) Pam continues to basically speak for me in this show.
So, uh, Beetlejuice 2. Not sure if Burton is directing? But if Beetlejuice isn’t Michael Keaton, I don’t want it. And I worry today’s Tim Burton would cast Johnny Depp instead. (Not that I mind Johnny Depp, but I’m getting a little overexposed to him. And I haven’t forgiven him for his performance in Alice in Wonderland.)
Adventure Time With Fiona and Cake
Saw the Adventure Time genderswap episode. Leaving the weird ending aside, it was everything I hoped it would be and I only wish there really were a show like that with a cheerful, confident heroine who goes on wacky adventures fighting queens and eyeball monsters and wouldn’t mind dating a prince but it’s not the biggest thing for her or anything. And then I realized no one would...

Oh hell yes
Amazon still has Junko Mizuno’s Cinderalla, Princess Mermaid and Hansel and Gretel for sale and in print. I lost those in a flood and worried they were out of print. Also, there was a Junko Mizuno collector My Little Pony. It’s cool, but I think I like this one better.
The Physician's Notebook intro
Another short sketch that may turn into a full story. Warning for gore at the beginning. We call it the Red Tear Plague, because it first affects the eyes. Patients report spots appearing in their line of vision, followed by blurriness, and then blindness. At this point the eyes are almost completely saturated with red, the veins broken and the pupils like clouded glass. Victims are almost...
Plastic Underworld Sketch II
Written a little after the first bit. This is from the POV of another character. Still not sure what I’ll do with it. Those of us who leave Paradise are called Inannan. It refers to She Who Left, the most beloved of Paradise who left one day without a word. The masked ones hate She Who Left, and in spite, they hate all who leave. We are considered ungrateful. I remember. When you...
