C.L. Polk's Witchmark (which I really enjoyed) is available at Tor.com until February 16th. I can't wait for the sequel!

I found Agatha and the Truth of Murder fairly enjoyable. It’s set during Agatha Christie’s disappearance and involves her solving a murder. N.B. (spoilers - highlight to view): Read more... )

I also enjoyed Close (2019). It follows a bodyguard who was just supposed to transport an heiress from point A to point B, but things go a bit pear-shaped at point B, and two women end up on the run. (I kinda want to read a bunch of fic featuring the two leads reconnecting and dating years later, but there doesn’t seem to be any fic on AO3 as of yet. It’s also on my ever-increasing list of things to vid).

I need more Kaia (AU or Prime) and Claire, and Kaia and Claire footage for a vid vids I want to make. *makes hopeful eyes at the remaining season 14 episodes*

I’m trying to decide if I should edit down the song I’m using for the resurrected SPN ladies vid (I could really use more footage of Alicia to work with).

I’m also trying to determine if the Killjoys vid I’m poking at is going to need footage from the as of yet unaired season 5 (I think I probably will).


…these aren’t either of the vids I’m supposed to be working on at the moment.

I assume one of the new buses broke down, beacause they're using an older one for my route home.

I'm struck by how much better designed the older bus model is (they public transit system by me got new ones a couple years ago) - like if you sit in seats that face the aisle, your legs aren't automatically blocking off the aisle. Also the seats are bigger and there are more of them, and the windows open.

And I'm still annoyed the new buses don't have the route number on the back (without that it's difficult to tell what bus just left/ if I should run and try and catch a bus).

I kinda want to write whoever designed the newer ones an irritated letter w/r/t design and functionality.

It was somewhat less bone-chilling today. I got less done on my fic than I hoped, but it was nice to not have to go outside.

I ran across these lovely covers via [personal profile] mswyrr: JVZEL's cover of Ed Sheeran's Shape of You and Chromatics' cover of Bruce Springsteen's I'm On Fire.

I just finished Claire O'Dell's A Study in Honor - I really enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to the sequel! I love that Holmes and Watson are both queer back women in this series!clev

Re-reading Le Carre's Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy for the fic reminds me how much I want to read more Le Carre-ish spy novels with queer women as the main character(s) - I can find stuff kinda, but not quite what I'm looking for.

I've written 500 more words on my fic, yay! ...although now I need to know how long it would take to go from Bernhardsthal to Vienna by train in 1990.

(I know how long it would take now, but I'm not sure if that's the same time it would've taken back then)

I'm off today (and probably tomorrow) because of the polar vortex (it's currently -4°F, but feels like -35°F). I'm so glad I don't have to go outside. I'm going to see if I can get some vidding or writing done.

Hi! Thank you for making something for me!

I’m fond of songs with female vocalists and I like fast paced vids. I also have a weakness for awesome women, femslash, and vids that make the source look way more queer than it originally was. If I mention specific characters, I would like at least some of them to be in the vid. I’m not terribly fond of text on screen that’s not part of the original source (when it’s not part of the vid credits or subtitles, or in a vid for a non-visual source) or a ton of dialog over music.

Below is some of what I like about the sources and some ideas/suggestions:

I got two really awesome vids this year:

Ninefox (Machineries of Empire) - I'm thrilled I got a Machineries of Empires vid! And I'm over the moon that it's about Cheris!

what i need (Saving Face) - a Wil/Vivian vid set to Hayley Kiyoko!

I still need to get one more piece of source, but I'm made some slight progress on the putting clips on the timeline part of things (there's a nine second section I really like)!

The slightly over three straight minutes of instrumentals stuff at the end is still somewhat intimidating, though.
