Quick update for my post: 38, female, Swiss πŸ‡¨πŸ‡­ , ace-aro :heart_ace: (aegosexual), fandom old. Writer, vidder, giffer. Currently mainly into but also lots of other fandoms (mostly tv).

Came here after seeing posts on fandom-after-tumblr - really enjoying this place, especially because I never did fandom twitter.
I'm shirasade pretty much everywhere else - :dw: :tumblr: :ao3: :pillowfort: also Hubzilla (, previously LJ (deleted).

I have decided that it's officially onesie season again and am currently starting my weekend all cozy in my panda onesie. And no plans for the next two days. Happiness!
I also released the episode of - it's basically 80 minutes of excited fangirling, if that's your thing. :)

Got to meet my bff's new baby yesterday - held my one-week-old godson for over an hour while he slept. Baby therapy is amazing! :)

I've passed the minimum word count of 1000 for my Yuletide fic, which is always a relief. And there's definitely still a good ways to go to tell the story my recipient wants. (I'm challenging myself and writing a ship I like but haven't read much and never written.)

The Untamed, anti-Xue Yang rant 

... holy crap apparently is one year old today?

Massive, massive πŸ’œ to everyone who's made this wildly more successful than I'd imagined it would ever be!

When you and your crew drive by in an Audi with the windows down despite the freezing cold, music blaring like the coolest dudes around - except a second glance reveals you're driving a rental car. Well, it's certainly one way to spend a Sunday afternoon... :)
For some reason this just struck me as hilarious.

Sweet. I'd been on a waitlist for a balboa workshop - it's tomorrow, so I'd given up hope, but I just got confirmation that I got in. I don't regret quitting regular lindy class (late evening really doesn't work for me), but I do miss dancing, so this will be nice. And I've been wanting to try balboa for a while.

My best friend had her second baby yesterday - his name's Jari & I'm so happy to say that not only is he my honorary nephew but also my godson. Can't wait to meet him for the first time!
(I'm so very glad for my bff, too, whose pregnancy managed to be even worse than the first one, which was already a nightmare.)

Why did I venture into the comments section on a post about Jodie Whittaker's outfit from the new Doctor Who teaser? I was perfectly content not knowing how many people apparently violently dislike the last season. My bad for thinking The Mary Sue readers were different, I guess...
(For the record, I enjoyed it for the most part, and I love the 13th Doctor and her gaggle of companions.)

AO3 isn't loading for me. According to them this'll happen more frequently over the US holiday weekend. AAAAH, whatever will I do without my daily dose of fic?? :)

Recently realised that my eyesight has worsened, so today, on my afternoon off, I got fitted for new glasses. I really like them, they're black & a bit of a cat-eye shape. Will post a pic after I picked them up. :)
(Even discovered my insurance should cover a good chunk, so got the better lenses. *g*)

Firefly is a space show for Dr. Who fans. I will not be answering questions.

Ugh. Drying out my bathroom ceiling (and part of the wall) will apparently take 2-3 weeks. 2-3 weeks of a noisy machine that I'm only allowed to unplug at night (so I can sleep - how generous)... Oh joy!

mental health 

Finished recording the Stucky episode of - I got very into it, so there's lots of squeeing. This is of course not proper interview etiquette but will hopefully make for an entertaining podcast. :)
I think the new microphone worked well. It was my laptop who decided at 50% battery to crap out on me, so I had to finish the interview sitting on the floor. My hope that my Macbook will reach its 10th bday (early 2021) is shrinking with every such incident.

If you have a .org domain name: go renew it now. For the full 10 years.

Registration rights for .org were just bought by a private equity firm. And as part of that contract, the price caps were removed.

Anything in .org will get much more expensive, soon.

A ten year renewal will cost you a bit over a hundred bucks. Which is probably less than one year will cost you in the very near future.
