Time to cleanout my Lootcrate backlog! All of these are unused items in their original packaging, but all of them have been unwrapped. Taking offers (over $5 please) for one or multiple items, first come first served, will ship anywhere but buyer plays shipping.

It started with The Hunger Games.

2010-2011 was a pretty rough time for me, mentally speaking. I spent a lot of it as an anxious wreck, and even though I was medicated, it was only working so well. For a while, it felt like literally anything could trigger a panic attack for me, but nothing was as sure-fire as depictions of violence. Didn't matter if they were fictional or real; if it involved people being hurt, I couldn't deal with it.

In early 2011, Mockingjay had been out for a couple months, and things were revving up for the first movie. Friends were recommending it to me, but the idea of a book/movie about a bunch of kids trying to kill each other turned my stomach.

Then I thought to myself, "I could just not."

It's a thought that probably shouldn't have felt like a revelation, but it did. I could just sit it out, let things pass me by, trade missing out on things I might enjoy for not having panic attacks.

Eventually, things changed in my life, and the panic attacks tapered off. I never went back to violence, though; my life was better without it, so I just decided to keep going. Read more... )

Popping by to drop off a link: I wrote a new SGA story! Well, it's kind of new, but the point is that it's never been posted. It's also gen and G rated, which is not usually my style, but here we are. I reproduce what I said about it on tumblr under the cut: Read more... )

Okay, so somebody brought this up, and so now I'm posting it.

This is- bear with me- a Firefly/Cowboy Bebop crossover that I wrote in 2006. I thought that I had only written one scene of it, but turns out I wrote chunks of several, to the tune of 1500 words. Pretty much all the story is here, so please enjoy. I'm pretty sure I ripped off part of it from the Cowboy Bebop manga (Ed becoming a computer program), but I still think it's a cool idea.

Sorry I haven't been around, guys; I've been hanging out almost exclusively at twitter, with some tumblr thrown in.

I stop by now to pose a question: I'm writing a BDSM for fic primer. Any questions/issues anybody would like to see addressed? You won't be named in the post.

Time to sell off BPAL! You should buy some. It's for a great cause. Granted, that cause is helping me add to one of my tattoos, but it's a great tattoo.

For your conveniences and archival purposes, I have compiled a zip file with the entirety of my stories on the AO3 to this point (from 2003 up to March 14, 2014). For reasons, the files are PDFs (though please remember, as always, you can download them in several formats from the AO3), sorted by fandom and series.

The file is available right over here, and feel free to distribute it near and far.

That is all.

Banging Them Together from MC Angmar on Vimeo.

sabinetzin: (jr - look at this face)
So here's this meme what I stole from [personal profile] mific, because it looks hella fun:

[personal profile] resonant said: I went to a conference this fall where instead of saying, "Hello, my name is ..." the name tags said, "Ask me about ..."

I loved that. It was a sustainability conference and that narrowed the options a bit, but there was still a surprising variety. "Ask me about organic eggs." "Ask me about green alleys." "Ask me about saving electricity."

We have a huge range of knowledge and talent here. We pretty much know who can draw and write and pod and vid, but if some of you are experts on octopus intelligence or making eclairs or the works of Jane Austen, I would never know it. I wish we had those name tags here.

So here are my ask me about nametags, and you should proceed to make your own, and we will all know so many things we did not know by the end.

Ask me about...

Making charts for counted cross-stitch

Writing dialogue without making it sound like it came from pod people

Pre-Columbian sacrifice in the Maya area (spoiler alert: it's bullshit)

Tips for attending a (large) con, including costuming, spending, and drinking

Death Valley National Park or Lava Beds National Monument

Richard III (the play and/or the 1995 movie)

Public dungeons and the activities taking place therein

The commodification and reclamation of Southern (US) culture

The concept of language, including uses of the word dialect, why you should never ask a linguist how many languages they speak, and why language and Language are different things

Dedication, or why Sabine quit music and grad school

Your turn! Ask me about these many things, or make your own lists of many things.

Hello DW/LJ, I am going to do the December posting thing! LBR, there's no chance I can do it on a regular schedule, so just throw prompts at me! Things I post about, things I don't post about, w/e. I will try to do them at some point in the month of December, in no particular order.

So. I wracked my brain trying to find something to do with leather, and came up with little. Then I desperately mined the Joann's, and came up empty handed. But then an epiphany! Leather cord! But what can I do with it?

Bondage! You knew it was coming. )

*Mostly because there's a mixture of fur and feathers in this picspam, and due to the quality of the photos and lighting, I can't always determine which one. I also apologize in advance that not all the images have alt text; this is because, except where noted, they are all pictures of Mae West wearing fur. Fill that in.

So today for Kink Bingo, I'd like to talk to you about this bad bitch. Who could it be but Mae? Besides Tallulah. )

I go on and off with collecting things, but one of the things I love to collect is card decks. Card decks have a lot of attributes that I find excellent in a collectible- there's an endless variety, they're small, I can be satisfied with cheap ones, and I can play with them to my heart's content. I don't just find them pretty or useful, though prettiness and utility are nice. I like the physical sensation of holding a card, of feeling its surface, of weighing it in my hand. That, to me, is one of the most important things about a deck: the kind of sensation it will produce, and how.

There are a lot of decks I could show you, but I just moved, so everything I own is scattered to the winds. But I keep my tarot decks together and on hand, so let's stick with tarot, shall we? And away we go! )
