I have chosen to stop trying to keep this fic post updated. Instead, you can find a full, updated look at what I've written at my AO3 account.


Well, that answers that question. (Oh look, Thor's got a boyfriend!

Couple of hundred pages into The Fifth Season (which is a good book and I might need to find more books by this author).

Beginning to suspect that there's only one main character and that the narrative is moving back and forth in time. As you do.

I have returned from sunny Scotland (no, seriously, sunny - a bit of rain friday when I arrived and some rain on the friday when I left, but the days between - sunny and nice and warm).

Have spent an awful lot of time walking - seriously, whose brilliant idea was it to build Edinburgh across what is for all intents and purposes a canyon and a hill? And in layers? Seriously, it's a city to make city planners cry. (And with Fringe and everything there was too many people in the city center for me to get much Pokemon Go played - I did get a little done, especially walking to Leith, but not much).

I've done the tourist thing - seen the National Museum and National Library, the Botanical Gardens, the royal yacht, Surgeons Halls museums, the Writers Museum, done walking tours about writers and ghosts and underground chambers, and I went to the Tattoo (which was a lot nerdier at times than expected).

And then I caught the train to Inverness (which was ridiculously cheap, because I had bought tickets early - going all the way up and back down through half of Scotland cost me less than just getting from here to Odense) to visit the lovely starrose17 for a couple of days. We played minigolf, strolled in Inverness' tiny botanical garden, went to the cinema to watch Suicide Squad (which I actually liked), watched movies at her place (including Batman v Superman, which I was surprised to actually like as well, and Taxi, which is still fun and I hadn't seen it in ages), oh, and we went sailing on Loch Ness in absolutely gorgeous, sunny, warm weather - the poor guide on the boat was at a complete loss for words, that's how gorgeous the weather was - ending with a bit of time to explore the ruins of Castle Urquhart. It was great fun.

And now I am back in Denmark, where the rain has apparently been waiting for me. Typical.

According to Politiken (and other people I know who have reported ridiculous amounts of Pokemon hunters there) the garden behind my once-a-week place of work is the absolutely best Pokemon hunting ground in the country.

And I've only had the game for a week, and it's my vacation, so I haven't even been by...

Maybe I should go to Copenhagen early monday - maybe get off at Østerport, see what a walk through Kastellet and then past Amalienborg and Nyhavn and onwards might net me (if nothing else a few kilometres) before going ghostbusting...

(Also, I should probably get the mobilepay app downloaded before monday, so nobody (you know who you are) will mock me if it's not there yet...)

This week and the next two is just vacation time.

I'll be heading for Scotland for a while, but until then my main plans involve - well, I want to see Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad. And play Pokemon - I finally got my new phone and everything, and we will not talk about how many rattatas and weedles I've been catching, because it's ridiculous. And read books and finish watching Cleverman and Preacher.

Maybe hope for a day when the weather will be nice and not threaten to rain at awkward intervals, because I've been thinking of going up to Hillerød for a bit - bring a book, find a nice bench in the castle garden and just hang. Or maybe go to Bakken and ditto, except with a rollercoaster ride on top. Maybe monday. Weather forecast for monday looks promising so far. Anybody want to go with me to Bakken on monday?

And I'm still writing Flash/Legends of Tomorrow fanfic, possibly as a rebound from Vikings (which still hasn't even gotten a date for season 4B, and the trailer for it pretty much has me convinced that Ragnar's about to die his snakey death, so... we'll see if I keep up with the show past season 4, because frankly, they might not be changing the title, but as radical changes as they're making, I think it's getting to be more in the nature of a spin-off than the same show). Though I'm unhappy, because it's all well and good that Wentworth Miller will be back next season (slightly off topic - should I watch Prison Break?), but I don't want Captain Cold as part of Legion of Doom, I want him as the token evil teammate/unreliable criminal sometime ally.

Anyway, writing Flash fic, and somehow that's made me write a fluffy threesome fic with more smut than I usually write. Which - I don't usually write smut, I suck at smut, how the hell did I write this fic anyway?

Reading the catalogue for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival

They've got a theater version of Terry Pratchett's Mort!!!

Except the only day I could have done that is the day I've got a ticket for the Tattoo :-( :-( :-(

Oh well.

(There are other things. So now I have to decide whether to go see Shake at the Edinburgh International Festival or something from Fringe. And I still need to pick a ghost tour of some sort. And apparently Fringe has a Book Lovers Tour, so there's that. And they're apparently premiering a documentary on Neil Gaiman, which just a few years ago I would have been so there for, but now? I dunno. (Also, a rather impressive amount of plays involving either Shakespeare or Sherlock Holmes.)

Decisions, decisions. Anybody have any recs? Or recs for Edinburgh in general? Museums, places to stroll, best food in town?

And new phone subscription ordered. With a ridiculous amount of data, because it was the cheapest... (don't ask me, I don't work there).

I'm keeping my old number, if anyone was wondering, so nobody need to worry about me suddenly not answering text messages or anything (except possibly on the day of transfer - which should be soon - we'll see.)

Anyway:

New phone ☑

New phone subscription ☑

Gotta catch'em all - pending

Does anybody have any negative opinions about the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge? Or positive ones?

(No, I am not seriously planning to go buy a phone because of a vague desire to try and play the new Pokemon game. I have been in the market for a proper phone for a year, at least, I think. But I am the person who finally got around to getting laser surgery because she wanted to try Himmelskibet in Tivoli).

For every new thing I read about Comic Con Copenhagen, I feel more meh about the entire thing.

So far, it’s games and cosplay and a few actors from US tv shows (which would be more interesting if we weren’t talking minor regulars and guests stars from tv shows I don’t even watch - mostly I’ve been going “who?” They could at least have gotten someone Vikings - though at this point, that would probably be the two Danes playing Ragnarssons instead of someone like Travis or Clive, and frankly, that would be even more disappointing…)

Good thing I never bought a ticket, and at this rate, nor will I.

Considering the rate at which my current place of employment is currently devouring smaller libraries, I predict that the ILL section will be shut down in about three years for lack of other libraries to loan stuff from...
I seem to have found myself writing The Flash/Legends of Tomorrow fanfic - specifically, I made a post asking for au prompts on tumblr for three-sentence-ficlets, and I'm now working my way a number of coldwave (as in Mick Rory/Leonard Snart) fics that are mostly turning out to be a lot more then three sentences.

The first one is a Star Trek AU and it's the only one actually three sentences long. Sort of. (I kinda gave up on the three sentences thing after the first one...)

The second one, Rogues in Twilight, was supposed to be a general vampire au, but kinda ended up as a crossover with Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch series (of which there's a new book coming out in English this fall - yay!!!).

The third one, First Impressions, is an age of sail au, with Mick and Len meeting after they've both been shanghaied.

The fourth (and probably not final) one is a viking au (I can't imagine how I managed to write anything viking-y, can you? I know absolutely nothing about viking-y stuff.) - Hervararkviða, which has grave-robbing for ancestral swords, because that really was the only proper way of getting a sword back then.

So that's what I'm getting up to, lately - apart from work, which is winding down for the summer, but I'm getting to catalogue a bit now instead of just ILL, so that's cool. And there has been two summer days at work Read more... )

And now the summer has decided to leave us early. Hopefully it'll be back at some point. Like early august.

Anybody have any idea how to make the notes for a specific tumblr post of mine not show up on my dash and activity page? Short of deleting the original post, I mean. Does Xkit have something for that?

(I'm happy my piece of silliness inspired somebody else to make a comment/fic-ish thing that people like, but - if this continues, I might miss stuff I wanted not to miss, you know?)

ETA: Nevermind. I just deleted the post. 11.000 notes in less than 48 hours was not conducive to a positive tumblr experience. Especially not since it wasn't for my original post that people were liking and reblogging it anyway... Everybody can have fun, I can stop worrying about missing anything else. Everybody wins except me having wanted not to delete a post.

Except it looks like even deleting the post doesn't stop the madness in the tumblr app. Dammit.

I'm trying to decide whether I want to stop by Fantasticon this year. Looking at the programme, there aren't any must-absolutely-not-miss things. There's perhaps some of the panels on sunday - mostly the one about how Danish sf & fantasy for adults having trouble reaching a wider audience - that might be relevant to my interests, but I dunno. We'll see.

Besides, I already have sort-of plans for saturday, so.

Anyway, the Kultfilmquiz people have posted the three dates for the fall - sadly, I can already see that the october date is probably not going to be for me, because I am hoping to get to go to the Nordic ILL conference that week (which is conveniently in Cph this year, so - hoping here). Anyway, I know some of us have been talking a bit about actually doing a quiz at some point - are we actually serious? Because it occurs to me that perhaps we should speak up and claim a date, if we are serious.

Apart from that, what else is new. Oh, right - I finally cancelled my tv subscription. No more flow tv for me. Went to the mail office at the supermarket yesterday to return the tv box and got an e-mail today confirming it had arrived safely - that was uncharacteristically fast.

Oh yeah: somebody tell me not to spend an unreasonably amount of money on all the books I've been planning on buying for a while now - the last Tiffany Aching novel and the newest Vorkosigan and some others and probably the Blood Moon dvd.
Hang out and play Slash! with certain highly suspicious characters.

Get around to watching the pilot episodes of Preacher and Cleverman.

Buy Scottish train tickets.

Pack up my tv box to get it back home to its original home. (Also, possibly buy gaffa tape or something to close the box with.)

Laundry

Also: do nothing. Absolutely nothing.
