Good grief, has it really been almost two years since I posted anything? Yes, yes it has. Also almost two years since I finally listened to maat_seshat
and got this account, which is pretty neat.
So, things have happened since then! Lots of big life changes, which is simultaneously exciting and utterly terrifying. I am now a college graduate!
(Pause while I flail some more.) I will be continuing with this whole "student" thing for a while, though, and starting grad school in the Fall. Which means I'm currently planning a move to a new city (exciting), and trying to find somewhere to live that for the first time in my life isn't with-my-parents or in-a-dorm (terrifying). But overall things are awesome! (Like hot dogs, thank you Eddie Izzard.)
Fannishly, I've done my usual butterfly impression and wandered into (and occasionally back out of) a bunch of new fandoms, which has been great fun. I also bid in the help_japan
charity auctions and won wonderful things! They make me jump for joy an awful lot, so here, let me share:Icons
of various comics by the fabulous cunning_croft
. The Calvin and Hobbes ones in particular capture a big part of my childhood. cunning_croft
also made my new default icon, which I am using here, but that one is mine, mine, all mine! Er, that is, I am being selfish, and possibly also over-identify with Ada Lovelace. It's from the webcomic 2DGoggles
, which you should all read -- Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage fight crime, how can you resist?More icons
by the lovely aravisautarkeia
, this time of period dramas and fantasy movies. Excuse me while I go roll around in their beauty some more.
And last, but very definitely not least, a Tortall fic
by the incomparable Esther Channah (dragonbat2006
). I asked her for anything about Raoul of Goldenlake, and she delivered the Raoul of my heart.
I hope the rest of you also enjoy these, and please let their creators know if you do! Okay, I'm going to stop obsessively tweaking and post this, or it will be another two years before I post anything.
