ladybusiness | Guest Post: Short Fiction Starter Pack — Ursula Vernon
Ursula Vernon is one of my all-time favorite fantasy writers, and it’s criminal that her work isn't better known. Her stories are thoroughly engrossing and often laugh-out-loud funny. I love the wise women, determined girls, talking animals, and deep sense of practicality found throughout her work. Fairy tales and folktales take a prize place in her work, and I've included several retellings among my recommendations.

rageprufrock | Haikyuu!!: I LIKE VOLLEYBALL A LOT NOW AND SO WILL YOU.
What is Haikyuu!!?

Haikyuu!! is a shounen manga/anime series about high school boys volleyball.

Cool, I have to go back to finding my split ends now.

GET BACK HERE. Look, at least give this a chance, because there will be Cute Boys, Gay Stuff, and Overwhelming Feelings mere paragraphs away, all right?

Fine. But this better be good -- I've survived sports anime before.

skywaterblue | The Long, Strange Legacy of Anne McCaffrey:
Anne McCaffrey and I had a history, though she wouldn't have been able to pick me out of a lineup. And Anne McCaffrey had a history with fandom, of which my own history is but a small part.

skygiants | It's called Tenchu and it makes absolutely no sense, but it's so dang cute!
It's like Leverage, if Nate Ford was a sweet elderly woman who just wanted to feed your face, Parker was a very confused time-traveler, and instead of genius con plans, everything always hinged on a ninja or two waiting until the ABSOLUTE MOST DRAMATIC MOMENT to hurl themselves out of hiding and start doing gratuitous flips.

coffeeandink | Nirvana in Fire | 琅琊榜 | Lángyá Bǎng
Hello, friends! I have so much I want to write about, so many year end round-ups of books and comics and TV and anime to do, and that will all have to wait, because I REALLY NEED TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT NIRVANA IN FIRE.

Nirvana in Fire (琅琊榜; Lángyá Bǎng) is a 54-episode Chinese historical drama. I had never watched a cdrama before. I watched it in a week. Then I watched it again the next week. Then I did a selective rewatch just of the scenes with my favorite characters, except for when I got sucked in and just ended up watching everything, which did not take a full week but still took more of one than I was expecting. I am still not really sold on this "watching other things" concept. I have abandoned all my other TV and reading except for The Good Place. I am thinking about a third full rewatch, hopefully with detailed notes and loving extrapolations of exactly what that faint modulation in tone, subtle glance to the side, or tiny aborted hand gesture means in relation to something that will be revealed 23 episodes from now.

rushthatspeaks | wait, what was that call number
Did I ever tell you all about the time I read the Necronomicon in a reference library? I must have done, because it's a story I tell because it's amazing and kind of hilarious, but I don't seem to be able to find anywhere on this journal I've told it, so maybe I haven't.

skygiants | Anna Cowan's Untamed
Apparently Anna Cowan's Untamed was Controversial in the Romance Novel Community, and to be honest the plot was total nonsense but I'm not gonna lie, I enjoyed the hell and a half out of it.

"Sooner or later, the graveyards are full of everyone."
Alexander Pierce's major argument for HYDRA taking over the world, in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, is the idea that measure less than holding a very effective gun to the head of the entire world and occasionally pruning the fractious blossoms is, as he describes it, "a holding action." It doesn't actually work, is his argument; it merely delays the inevitable.

And there's a great many arguments that arise almost immediately, but most of them start or end with, "You're wrong." He's wrong because X, or Y, or example Q, or whatever. ...the argument that immediately struck me was one of the thematic arguments of the Discworld series, which does not actually start with you're wrong but rather with you're right.

shati | Festivid #2: Hand in My Pocket (Dororo)
Before I actually watched it, I was thinking some kind of creepy, unsettling song would be good. Demons! Limbs! I mean, you would think. Then I actually watched it and realized that any vid about Dororo could not be creepy, because Dororo is just unrelentingly NOT CREEPED OUT. Dororo gets angry, curious, sad, and scared, but Dororo is not creeped out. And Dororo makes faces and turns somersaults a lot. And then there is demon slaying to salsa style frolicking date montage music.

I have always wanted to make a hideously literal vid about dismembered hands to "Hand in My Pocket." It was a joke at first, and then it actually kind of seemed perfect? Even the voice, kind of.

thingswithwings | The Monster and the Closet: Welcome to Night Vale and Queer SpecFic
I finally found that queer speculative fiction show I was looking for all that time, and it's Welcome to Night Vale.

I need to talk about Welcome to Night Vale. It grew on me like a fungus and now I love it so much that my heart physically hurts sometimes.

My discussion will include spoilery references to the most recent episode, 32, "Yellow Helicopters."

icarus_chained: Small Meta: On the Use of Names in Pairings
I was just thinking about this in terms of my having written Sybil/Sam/Havelock and Sherlock/John/Mary. Just noticing the choice of names used for each pairing tag. I noticed it even at the time, when I was putting the threesomes in the headers for the fics and noticed the odd ... stickiness of the names? Just taking those two. The Discworld set, do you say Vimes/Vetinari/Sybil? Vimes/Vetinari/Ramkin? Sam/Sybil/Havelock? With the Holmes set, is it Holmes/Watson/Mary, or Holmes/Watson/Morstan, or Sherlock/John/Mary?

None of them really look right, laid out. And there are a couple of reasons for that, and also a couple of implications, and right now I'm sort of randomly finding this fascinating.

icarus_chained: Sherlock Holmes (ACD) Meta
This is middling-to-majorly nerdy of me, but howandever. It's been bugging me slightly since discussing the various Holmes adaptations with people, in particular the BBC Sherlock version and the Downey film version. Just a small exploration of the original, Arthur Conan Doyle Holmes, mostly concerned with his views on crime/morality/law. Only my interpretation, but one I'm ... ah, rather vehemently attached to.
