Welcome! I'm Beth, and this is where I talk about writing, life, and other stuff. Right now things are rather rough and inelegant around here; that may change, or it may persist despite all efforts to change it. Roughness has a habit of doing that.

In the meantime, stick around -- hopefully fun things will be afoot soon.

Still around and reading, just a bit quiet. Finishing my Remix Revival fic tapped out quite a bit of my creativity. And I keep starting and deleting entire screeds about the current state of North Korean politics and nuclear brinksmanship because I am a rank amateur when compared with the good folks in the disarmament business who can look at a missile for five seconds and say things like ah, yes, that's a second-generation Iranian-produced Scud-D model, only painted black and with extra fins added to it for no good reason that we can determine. I hate feeling only half-informed, if that.

At this point I am crossing off days until my folks swing down from the Frigid North to visit in mid-October, and to my planned Japan trip in mid-November. If anything else creative or similarly productive gets done during the interim, I'm not sure whether it'll be in spite of or because of my own efforts.

But still around and reading, as mentioned.

My Yuletide nominations for this year are Porco Rosso, Night Raid 1931, and Master Keaton. They're all finally available in English -- the last volume of Master Keaton goes on sale mid-September -- so perhaps this will be my year for rare history-based anime fandoms? I live in hope.

EDIT: I should admit that most of these nomination choices came about because at one point a few months ago I was seriously considering having an all-DPRK slate: the Inspector O novels, The Schoolgirl's Diary film, and the Squirrel and Hedgehog animated series. Much as I would enjoy writing or reading fic for any of these canons, I do not relish the thought of ending up on _coal at this time.
