Early Morning Surprise  
The changing light patterns outside are waking me up before my alarm goes off at the moment. Which isn't great for my sleep patterns. It's totally brilliant if you're Kheldar though because he usually manages to sneak into the bedroom when I get up and go to the bathroom.

Today it was not so great for Kheldar. I woke up about 45 minutes early and he got to hop into the space between me and the edge of the bed and have a good wash and go to sleep and then... then my alarm went off.

I got out of bed, trying not to tip him off the duvet on the way, and turned the alarm off. Meanwhile Kheldar's Loud Noise Threat Assessment System attempted to wake the rest of the cat up. What mostly happened was a thud as he hit the floor and then nothing. I looked down. Kheldar's head tipped up so that his eyes could look at me. His eyes were open but I don't think he was really seeing anything. He'd frozen in place with one hind leg off the floor and one front leg off the floor because loud noise had now stopped and his body didn't know what it was supposed to be doing any more and most of him was still asleep anyway.

So I picked him up and put him back on the duvet and he kind of fell over sideways into a cat cushion and went straight back to sleep. He'd clearly had a busy night and I thought at least one of us should get the opportunity of some more sleep.

He's still mildly disgruntled about the whole business this evening.

Weekly Reading  
What I’ve Just Finished Reading

The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu
It's available for free online here. A really affecting story. What made it for me where the small details, like the water buffalo wanting to wallow and jumping into the soy sauce.

What I’m Reading Now

The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
I really like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, so I picked this up at a book flea market. I'm not very far in yet. I'm currently at the point where professor Challenger invites the protagonist back into his house after having bodily thrown him out a moment before. He's certainly a memorable character. I loved the interaction with his wife.

What I Plan to Read Next

Probably This Census-Taker by China Mieville since it needs to go back to the library soon.

WorldCon San Jose  
Just went and bought my membership, yay!

I haven't been to a con in ages, let alone a WorldCon, but this one is local to me and a bunch of people I know are coming, so I figured I had no excuse for not going.

Fandom post: Saiyuki Reload BLAST  

Saiyuki Reload BLAST E11-12 (9/10) → Slightly disappointed with how Goku acted in E13 once the situation escalated; spoilery? )

I defended the anime's portrayal of him in E02 but I'm siding with the disappointed peeps on this one.

Some other spoilery stuff. )

I can't believe that the episode this week is gonna be the last. Part of me still has trouble believing that we even got a BLAST anime in the first place, and now it's already ending :( I have no idea how the finale's going to go or if we're even going to have a S02 somewhere down the line.

Cauchemars de rentrée  
Je ne sais pas ce que cela veut dire, mais cela fait trois fois cette semaine que je rêve que je dois faire un cours de matières artistiques ou littéraires sans y être préparée. ^^

La première fois, je devais donner un cours d'art plastique, et je croyais que j'allais pouvoir bluffer les élèves en leur demandant de tout faire eux-mêmes, mais là je constate qu'il y a trois profs d'arts plastiques dans l'assistance

La seconde fois, je devais faire passer les oraux de bac français, mais c'était moi qui apportais les textes, pas eux. J'en avais sélectionné que j'aimais bien, mais il se trouvais qu'ils étaient tous inidaptés, pas assez littéraires, trop courts (certains ne faisaient qu'une ligne), etc

Et cette nuit, je rêve que je fais un cours de théâtre et que je suis en train de distribuer les rôles pour une pièce de Shakespeare. Je crois que c'est "Le songe d'une nuit d'été", mais ils sont en train de se disputer pour savoir qui jouera Romeo et Juliette. Aussi, ils sont nombreux, je n'arrive pas à me rappeler leurs noms, j'ai une liste mais je n'arrive pas à la relier aux visages.

[comm] dear trickortreatex author:  
Dear Trick or Treat Author,

Thank you for writing something for me! I love this time of year and the holidays it brings. Cool weather approaching, winter approaching, and all the cozy and creepy things. ... I didn't mean for that to rhyme, but we'll go with it. Anyway, I have a pretty standard set of likes/dislikes included in my letter that I include in almost all of them. Then, I'll give you some specific prompts and any specific likes/dislikes for each fandom request.

AO3: [ profile] failsafe

Likes: canon-typical violence, missing scenes, UST, emotional ambiguity, found families, developing or established relationships, time travel, pre-canon, post-canon, bedsharing, loyalty, worldbuilding, epistolary/journal/log fiction, monster-of-the-week / slice of ordinary life adventures, earned second chances, dealing with consequences, "what if" / canon divergent AUs, earned happy endings, holidays, casefic, groundhog day trope, mysteries, healing, survival (wilderness, zombie apocalypse, etc.), last stands, trying against impossible odds, succeeding against impossible odds, heartfelt goodbyes, unexpected reunions, foils

Dislikes: character bashing towards anybody, noncon, explicit gore, breathplay, serious or permanent injury related to sexuality, nihilism, hopeless endings (but sad is okay)

For all fandoms, I have selected nominated character tags for focal characters I'd like to see, but I'm happy with any and all combinations of supporting characters. If you would like to do ship-fic, I will include a list of the ships I'd like to see. However, I am equally happy with gen or something in-between. I am happy with all ratings unless noted for a specific prompt. If I indicate that I'd like to have smutty fic, I prefer to let the characters dictate their own kinks, and I'm pretty game for anything which doesn't involve scat or any of my other DNWs. With regard to violence, I am happy to see it included, particularly on the level it might be in canon, but especially in fandoms that are especially violent I would prefer fics that didn't focus on a play-by-play of especially gruesome things, even if they are included within a plot.

Now, onto fandom specifics. This letter is so long, you may want to use CTRL + F!
