March 27th, 2006 12:04 pm - I will create as I speak
Early this morning I was visited by a bogeyman. I heard him in the living room - I heard him come stalking down the hall - I heard him crunching through the mess of papers on my bedroom floor - I heard him make deep, irritable growly noises like nothing I had ever heard before - and I knew, I just knew, that if I pulled my head out from under my covers, I would see him on the floor below my bed, see his glowing red eyes afloat in a mass of darkness - and he would know I was there - and then - no, I don't even want to think about and then.

I had no other option but to stay all the way under the blankets, to try to make my breathing quieter, and go into the accepted method of getting rid of bogeymen (that being, keep your eyes closed and your head under the blankets and try your best to convince yourself that he couldn't possibly exist, and when you no longer believe he has to go away.) It worked. Eventually.

When I woke up for the final time this morning, I could have sworn that the clothes hanging on my closet door had a pale, dead face and were watching me...

I've never been bothered with monsters under the bed before, or anything like that (except for the days when occasionally the sweet-gum tree by my window would get restless and come walking, but that was only that one autumn before it settled down.) I wonder what attracted that one last night. I wonder if I can remember never to do that again. Yesterday in church I started to say the Abracadabra diminishing chant, but was interrupted before I got to the end of the spell ... I'm tempted to say something about psychic energy leaking out of the unbound ends, or attracting demons by saying their names lightly, or tiger repellant and the day it stops working ... but it's noon and broad daylight, and I don't really believe in any of that stuff. Really.

Where's my blanket?

March 16th, 2006 11:28 pm - I really ought to put a useful title here.
I just stuck the fanfic I was working on today onto my [livejournal.com profile] necreavit account, while I try to figure out if I'm ready to spread it around at large. It's Batman/Highlander crossover genfic, about 3500 words, and it's a crossover style I've never written before (and rarely seen written at all) - the amalgamverse kind, where nearly everybody is a blend two different characters, one from each of the two fandoms, and the universes' rules and backstory are similarly smushed. I'd really appreciate if anybody who's even passingly familiar with both fandoms would go and tell me if it makes any kind of sense at all.

I may start using [livejournal.com profile] necreavit more, by the way, if I don't get moving and fix my laptop's internet; it makes it much easier to write when I'm swapping back and forth between computers.

Um, lessee. Also, I now have all of our YA (not counting the special collections) in LibraryThing - I've been at the downstair computer, which is also where those books are, so hey! Kismet! (1333 and maybe halfway done now.)

Also, I have figured out who my new haircut makes me look like. It is *exactly* the same look as this superheroine's. . . can I cosplay a GLA member with the JLA group? Please? *g*

March 6th, 2006 07:41 pm - i just keep it for the ticks.
Yay, sister blogged so I don't have to!
Two pictures of me from our walk by the river: In Which I am a Dryad; In Which I am a Nazgul.
Other pictures from Saturday are up at her scrapbook, here. Don't follow the link in her entry, it is wrong, wrong, wrong! q-: I have some more pictures from the train ride down to her place; I may get around to putting them up eventually.

Let's see. In other news, I am still three days behind in my Lent reading, and did not entirely succeed in keeping the laptop closed today (although I *mostly* suceeded;) I only got home fifteen minutes ago and have two short essays to write for tomorrow; and on the ride home this afternoon, the sword&sorcery NaNo novel I started for my first time - three years ago - the one where each of the main characters is more gender-confused than the last - suddenly returned and started eating my brain.

And now I apparently have to eat my dinner before it gets cold, go down by the fire where it's warm, and
prepare to watch [livejournal.com profile] stellar_dust's imaginary boyfriend. My life is so hard.

ETA: Okay, tonight's Digging for the Truth was actually pretty darn good. It probably helps that I have long had a massive geek-crush on Teotihuacan, though. And I now *desperately* want to find some actual evidence that BSG's Pyramid/Triad is related to the ball game. I have believed this since I first saw a Pyramid court, I just don't have anything to back up my instinctual conviction. Possibly because the continuity of Pyramid is even more bollixed up than the continuity of Sabacc. (Okay, apparently the original game of Triad has some clear resemblance to the post-classical ball game. I should make my sister loan me her tape of that episode, since I already borrowed-without-permission her copy of the Popul Vuh.)
