6/13 - obviously after Cynthia Tedy
and then I had some fun with it since such slick/straight hair didn't quite say 'Mags' to me:

And on a further Hunger Games-related note
+gif set of Meta Golding putting in her Enobaria teeth and smiling which I had never seen before and thought was awfully cute
(and browsing this user's 'bts' tag I saw other stuff I'd never seen before either)


6/13-14 - and this one is obviously after Shimapu

And now below the cut a few pixel-ized versions of some of my recent art... )

[profile] wendelah has been a nurse for 32 years and knows her shit: Go here and see these links for helping to fight for the Affordable Care Act. Yes, it's flawed, but it's a far cry better than what they're looking to replace it with.

I have many strong, personal feelings on health care and the medical system right now and don't want to dump them on you, so I'm going to disable comments and make a more upbeat post soon. If you want to talk about the ACA or health care, or any of the other interesting political things that [profile] wendelah has linked to, please let the focus be on her post. :)

I have a backlog of things I keep meaning to post about, but first- A rec!!

The Fever of the World (8487 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World (2003), Master and Commander - All Media Types
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Jack Aubrey & Stephen Maturin
Characters: Jack Aubrey, Stephen Maturin
Additional Tags: Hurt/Comfort, Prison, Delirium, Worry, Fever

And everywhere the fire, lighting sky and sea, dappling across the small bobbing faces lifted to the heavens.

He had seen Stephen swimming, hadn't he. He had known Stephen would remember how to float, the way Jack had taught him. Feeling sure, he had floundered past, to get about saving as many as he could. After all, he had seen Stephen swimming.

Hadn't he?

It is so good! Jack and Stephen are shipwrecked, and jailed to await prisoner trading-- Perfect h/c, perfect Jack and Stephen banter, with period medicine and emotional vulnerability and rude details, and the tone and characterisation both are so very spot on. If you love these guys, give this a read. ♥

lunch napkin sketch 6/5/17 - bacon and eggs (by Horatio)

Several other small bits of (99%) original art. )

Last night I finished reading Marina Yurlova's autobiographical Cossack Girl, which I really enjoyed, but, wow, as if I hadn't already had the general impression that Russia was an absolute mess from sometime about 1917 on... Marina was very brave and adventurous and, in some cases, so, so lucky. I wonder where she went during her visit to Japan (to 'Sulphur Springs' - doesn't narrow it down much when you think about hot springs in Japan, right? ha ha ^^).

And a few days earlier I finished Jean Moorcroft Wilson's first biographical volume on Siegfried Sassoon, which I also enjoyed (although it was less of a...uh, wild, ride? seeing as I knew a lot more about Sassoon going in). I knew Sassoon was at home in England when WWI ended, but it was still oddly anti-climactic ending where it did ("Then what happened?!" I laughed, insistant). The local library system does not have her second volume on Sassoon, but I have other things to read at the moment, so I can let it wind its way slowly to me. XD;

I've missed my June checkin for getyourwordsout, I am so behind on any personal writing, and I've only a handful of prompts I'm seeing myself capable of doing for notprimetime treats. D: D: D: Need a day off from work that's not a weekend where I'm trying to take a day off from doing anything; god almighty.

Been busy trying to stay alive at work, sustain a single-income household, and gardening to keep sane. Snipped to death all the greens that were kind of stunted today, and filled with beans and cucumber seeds because I have no idea what to grow under the blasting heat of the midday sun. Something about mad dogs and Englishmen.

God I miss writing.


edit: over and over I have had in my head

My vegetable love should grow
Vaster than empires and more slow;

A lot of poetry recently, including Mary Oliver.
