sing that cold water
I know so well,
be that dark current
I carry in my veins.

let it take me under
to the shallows in winter,
see the ice stretch above
an opaque and cracked sky.

listen for sturgeons
and feel the eels,
dream in hibernation
on the lakebed.

sing the winter water
I've been promised,
be that killing cold
I was born in.

wait for my mother,
count the dead here,
my gookum, my uncle,
everyone I knew.

forget the sun
I lied to,
give up the warmth
I wasted away,

sing that ice road,
pray for frostbite,
beg for winter's mercy,
be numbed by snow.

1. It is warm today. I am wearing a sleeveless shirt and right now I am barefoot. This makes me happy.

2. Relatedly, I did my biannual closet swap -- moved the winter stuff into storage more or less, or at least out of the way, and moved the warm-weather stuff back into rotation. Now that I have done this we will probably get two weeks of cold-and-rainy, or something, but it still feels good to have shifted the closet over.

3. The flowers we planted in a box on our wee mirpesset last weekend are blooming and they are lovely.

4. I ran into someone at the co-op today who saw me doing my job recently and wanted to tell me that she's rooting for me to get the permanent position. \o/

5. Someone nearby has hung a beautiful wind chime, and I like the way it peals.

Shabbat shalom to all who celebrate.

I had a dream with a flashback in it!

It starts out on a train, and Diego Luna comes up to me (I know right) and he says, "You're so pretty. Were you in the Christmas play?" And I ask, "What was the name of it?" And he tells me, and I say no. And he's all, "Are you sure?" And he's playful and sweet and he reaches out a finger like he might teasingly poke me in the stomach, and I push his hand away and say, "I'm not interested."

A few seats ahead of me, my mother turns around, ready to disapprove of my lack of interest in romantic pursuits or whatever it is mothers are concerned about, and I say, "I said no."

Turning Diego Luna away made no sense to me, the dreamer, because Diego Luna being cute! But in real life, nothing will make me suspicious faster than calling me pretty, so I felt like maybe I understood at least part of it.

Then there was some stuff with a law enforcement officer tied to a pole in the middle of a dusty compound populated with girls wearing bikinis and diaphanous wraps. And I was there to witness his sacrifice or something?? And there I met a tall, heavy-set Hispanic or Native American girl—not in a bikini—who would only look like me if you'd recently been struck on the head, and I asked her if she'd been in the Christmas play. I guess I was trying to find whoever it was Diego Luna thought I was.

Then the flashback!

Diego Luna and I came from the same small town! Where we grew blueberries! But the crops had died, and the blueberry bushes were growing back in straggly vines with thick, black, chitinous bark, and that was no good because the berries couldn't sprout through the bark.

I touched one of the plants, and the few berries that were there were bruised and deformed, and my hands turned dark with their juice. Diego Luna showed up at the end of the row, and I went to him and hugged him, the way you do when your hands are dirty, wrapping my arms around him and pressing the back of my hands to his shoulders, my fingers curled inward, and I told him, "We'll figure this out."

And then I left. To figure things out at college maybe? And he stayed there, to figure things out on the ground. And I can only assume it created a rift between us, and that's why I pretended not to know him on the train.

And that's my impoverished blueberry farmer dream, starring Diego Luna.

Late last night I learned there is a kickstarter for a film about fandom and from the sound of it, I think it could be a whole lot of fun and hopefully it will be because I just realized I pledged slightly more than half of my monthly allowance to the project. The film concerns a fictional buddy cop show called Bay City. If you're interested in backing it, or just learning more, here's a link to the kickstarter page:

If This is Wrong: A Film About Fandom.

p.s. You can tell I'm excited just by looking at that run-on sentence in the first paragraph!

[personal profile] beren_writes
Title: Defence, Pretence, Offence - Chapter 46/70 - Trial of the Century
Author: Beren (aka Tasha)
Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.
Warnings: This story is canon compliant until the end of Order of the Phoenix and then goes AU. None of the HBP or Deathly Hallows plot will be used, or the Horcruxes for that matter since this story was planned before we knew the details about those things, and hence has it's own fanon. This includes birthdays and other information that have since been revealed on Pottermore and in further productions.
Summary: The threat of open war in on the horizon. The Order and the Ministry are of one accord and both know that where Harry Potter is, Voldemort will eventually be. Preparations are being made and this time the side of the light will not be caught unawares.
Summer classes, sabotage, revelations about Draco's father, teaching and the final showdown with Voldemort all await Harry and Draco in this exciting sequel to Gold Tinted Spectacles (LJ | AO3 | Wattpad).
Author's Notes: This is the second story in the Hecatemae universe. It starts up just after the end of the first instalment and I advice reading that one first so you understand the premise. Thanks go to my sister Sophie for the beta reading.
It has taken me 12 years to finally get around to finishing this, I very much hope everyone enjoys it.

New chapters will be posted every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Hey, do you guys have any fave Stargate vids? SG-1 or Atlantis, not picky. Or even the like, movie.

I'm teaching my brother how to vid, and he wants to make a Stargate vid, and I figured one of the things I should do is introduce him to the extant fannish vidding culture and also it'd be fun just have a vid watching party.

1. Today I was good at my job and that felt good.

2. I am making roasted stuffed peppers right now and they are making my kitchen fragrant.

3. I am rich in friends, and there are a lot of people whom I love, and I am fiercely grateful for this, even when my heart aches because some of those beloveds are suffering.

4. The implausible chartreuse of early spring's first leaves, which I adore, every year.

5. The fact that even when life is not easy, I can feel in my bones that I am in a better place than I was a year ago.

jitemids first, which is more correct.
