There are times when you have to take a plot bunny out behind the shed and quietly do away with it before it eats everything in sight. So when I was hit with an awful, soul-crushing fusion idea for Yuri!!! on Ice and Puella Magi Madoka Magica -- in which Yuri Plisetsky is essentially Akemi Homura, a once sweet and charming child turned bitter and cold-hearted by a thousand failed timeloops in which he's been unable to stop his friends from dying or turning into witches -- I had to bash out this ficlet and throttle the concept at the source.

(Tidied up from the original anon posting at F_FA. Title from the Madoka ending theme, Magia by Kalafina. Some text modified from Madoka EP 10. Warning for Madoka-canon-typical violent character death.)

You can go back in time, right, Yurio? )

I have no intention of writing more of this, because did I mention that it would be soul-crushing? *goes to toss it at AO3 and then lie down for a while*

1. Days when it is not yet dark out at 9pm. I mean, it's no longer daylight? But it's not completely dark.

2. Watching the sky change. My wee solar-powered lights against the backdrop of the changing evening sky.

3. Glass of rosé. I think this may be the Summer of Rosé for me.

4. Having an ARC of a book I am totally totally psyched to read. (Alas I am exhausted and am not going to stay up to read it tonight, but I have hopes of reading more of it tomorrow.)

5. I got my ticket to Vividcon! I'll be there Thurs-Mon this year, and I already can't wait.

This is the DVD commentary meme for Dilettante, my first YOI fic by a lot! I wrote it almost as soon as I had caught up with the show, in between the eighth and ninth episode. It had been a long, long time since I'd dared write something for an on-going series, and even longer for an anime, but, well, we all have to start somewhere.

The title I got because St. Vincent's "Dilettante" shuffled on when I was writing and it fit.

11:26pm I feel I should update since I don't yesterday, but I'm not sure if I have anything to say.

Oh wait, I do, namely I got through a bit of writer's block with my story, whoo go me.

I also helped Mrs S with setting up her security camera, it took a call to Telstra to get it going, but it all came good in the end.

Also, I dare to hope that my lower abdomen issues may have cleared up, I felt pretty ick this morning,I almost didn't want to show up for the Scripture class, but I did and I even went to the gym after. Yaay go me.

Aside from that not much else and I'm watching something on my laptop so I'm actually updating this on my phone so yeah.

Better be off now, goodnight everyone!

It's taking a lot for me to even write this but I don't think I have any other option. I just found out that my family and I are most likely going to lose our house by the end of the week. We're probably going to have to move into the first place that will take us and will probably have to ask someone to temporarily keep one of our pets as most apartments have a two pet policy (we have three dogs). I'm currently unemployed and it's very difficult for me to find a job. I have an invisible illness that necessitates a sitting job which is rare to find in my area. Because my illness is not technically considered a disability, I receive no special treatment or benefits. I'm still actively seeking employment but in the meantime I thought I would try and open up commissions. Unfortunately, I'm not an artist, but I do write. All of my previously written work can be found on my AO3 here. I'm willing to write any fandom/ship from this list in exchange for a "coffee" ($3) on my ko-fi here. If you have a spare $3 lying around and I would appreciate this more than you could ever possibly know. Thank you for even considering it. 💖 Layla

Brief update (amid everything that I have to do still!) - there will be a longer update eventually, or maybe not-- blame my ENFPness

1.) We are in our house, all moved in (but definitely not settled)
2.) INTERNET! (after a few weeks of roommate flaking out, which reminds me, NO MORE ROOMMATE)
3.) Cats are doing well, they fucked with Owen today and hid from him for a majority of the day-- so I kept getting texts from him going "Where is L.I.T.A-- idk)
4.) Oh yes, last but not least-- I am engaged! Owen proposed to me on sunday and now I have a pretty Claddagh ring (which is exactly what I wanted). So, homeowners and engaged in one fell swoop-- it's like so many life events at once (no, I am not pregnant)

Hopefully you guys are doing awesome! I missed y'all!

Now to download Stormblood and watch that eat up my life!

Looks like I need to read the local paper more often: First Fort McMurray pride event to be held in August
(And there's also a more recent article from CBC)

I was going to say "I'm surprised we even have any kind of Pride organization". Had never even heard of it until I saw the municipal twitter refer to it today. But it turns out they're brand new as of this year, so... that would explain things.

Must admit, I did raise an eyebrow a little bit at this:

Rensmaag [A member of the committee], who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ community, said she is not sure why there have not been more Pride events held in Fort McMurray in the past.

The most recently held event, called "Pride at the Pub," was celebrated in 2013 at Bailey's Pub. The gathering was marred when several individuals stole a Pride flag hung to celebrate the event and burned it in the parking lot.


Ah, yes... I wonder why there have not been more Pride events. Such a mystery. Especially since there were so many people who wondered what all the fuss was about, and talked about that flag-burning as if the people who did it had done nothing wrong. (The stuff I heard at work the day after this happened... Well. You know.)

Anyway. This thing is happening on August 26th. That's a Saturday. That means I can definitely go, as long as it's during the day. So, I will. This isn't a "maybe".

The idea kind of terrifies me, I will admit. My biggest worry is what if somebody from work sees me, because I'm not out at work, and if somebody found out, it could (and likely would) cause problems. But the people I work with are not the sort who would go within a kilometre of this event, so it should be okay. Plus, the square it will be held in is very close to one of my favourite cafes, as well as the main transit terminal, and I know the area very well, so... plenty of escape routes if things get weird, or if I get nervous, and admittedly getting nervous without reason is about 9000% more likely to happen than anything else.

It's embarrassing to admit that I am afraid; it's embarrassing to be afraid. When I was in university, I was never afraid. I was in my school's pride organization; it was the first club I joined, and I went to every meeting. When my SO visited from Halifax, or when I went there, we held hands whenever we were out, and didn't give a damn who saw us. Whenever people asked about my engagement ring, I gave the plain facts about it. I don't remember ever feeling like I had to hide.

But Wolfville and Halifax are not Fort McMurray, and Nova Scotia is not Alberta. And I'm at a very different life stage now than I was at that time. So... I guess it's not entirely unreasonable to feel this way, but I'm still going to be disgruntled that I do feel it.

Oh, well.

I wonder if Pride YMM will get permission to have the crosswalks painted like rainbows. That would be cute.

I want to write some totally id-y fiction full of supernatural romance and power imbalances and then those power imbalances being flipped. Which means maybe I should do Camp NaNo? Is anyone planning on participating in Camp NoNo this July? Is this a terrible idea? Someone either enable or talk sense into me lmao.

EDIT: Altho I can also just write AUs instead of working on original fiction, even though gosh I really need to start working on original fiction again, like dang, me. :\a

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

My fic lives here.

Also, I note with some amusement that the only fic mentioned in this post that I haven't actually managed to finish is The Fall of Strelsau. Though it's now sitting at 6,833 words, and yes, includes a by-election.

I watched Moana on Netflix yesterday, and yes, I liked a lot. I loved Moana's determination and her spirit, and loved that her mission was to save her people (I love that she was undoubtedly her father's successor, no bullshit), not to find blah blah love. It's one of the rare movies that I didn't mind the CGI -- the water was really cool, and loved all the scenes where it peeled back to show sealife. Like that scene in The Prince of Egypt, during the Red Sea scene (although that was traditional animation and now I really want to watch The Prince of Egypt again.)

Moana reminded me in turns of Hercules (Maui and Herc would get along great -- and so would his tattoos and the Muses!) and Mulan and Lilo & Stitch -- not coincidentally, some of my favorite Disney movies. I wasn't too crazy about all the songs (god, the crab song when on way too long), but Moana had a lot of heart to it, which I thought was kind of missing from the last new Disney movie I've seen -- Frozen.

Anyway, as the very last person to see Moana, it was great! The scene of her ancestors voyaging across the ocean -- and then her doing it too -- really touched me. I hope Disney gives us more diverse princesses (or chief's daughters, in any case) in the future. It was really a lot of fun.

There was a meme on Twitter that asked for your top three Disney songs, and I ended up picking 2/3 songs from when I was coming up, during the Disney Renaissance (and a bit after.) My choices were Aladdin's "A Whole New World", The Little Mermaid's "Part of Your World" and Mulan's "Be A Man." What about you?
