If you would like a Christmas card from me, please leave me your address in the comments. (They're screened so that nobody else will be able to see it.)

If you don't, I might try to send you one anyway and get your address wrong, and nobody wants that.

I really did have aspirations of painting my own card this year but it's too late and visual art is currently not high priority on my creative works list. I haven't bought cards yet. Maybe they'll be awesome, we don't know.

Fanfiction:
Write some B/A fic totaling at least 5000 words: Don't mind me I'm just banging my head against the desk here. (I know that what I've posted is technically B/A and over 5k words, but none of it officially exists yet, remember? Yes arbitrary rules are my favorite thing.)

Original fiction:
Plot out the first arc for my other comic: Actually yeah! It probably amounts to around 20 minutes of work, but it's what needed to be done before any more work can happen, so it's a victory.
Clean up and post/publish a couple poems: Edited and recorded a second one so that's "a couple." Crossing it off; screw publication.

Reading:
Finish a book a month: Mindtouch by MCA Hogarth. This had been on my list for a while but I decided to purchase it recently, in part because it made a lighter travel book than what I'd been reading and in part for the sake of showing support for the author, who had temporarily vanished from the internet after the election. I had known what to expect going in -- no plot, alien furries, gentle friendship -- and had no cause for disappointment. I have no doubt I'll be carrying on with the series.
Read one poem every night before going to sleep: Interesting thing about the Good Poems collection is that it's arranged by topic. I'm on the "Music" chapter and for some reason it seems slower than the others did. I still like it though.

TV:
Catch up on Doctor Who: Finished S8. Very sad finale. I like all the classic enemies recurring but I've also started getting annoyed sometimes when the big reveal is...Cybermen, again. Loved the big reveal on Missy all the way, though. Have I mentioned the opening sequence is my very favorite? Because it is. With the Roman numerals and the (yup!!) golden spiral. Killer.

Other:
Finish and post my homebrew 30-day meme: Worked on it.

Well, so much for this being my month of writing, but I tried. If I can get maybe two more items crossed off, I won't have finished, but it will still make a pretty impressive-looking list. That's all I really care about.

It's finally sunk in that the reason I keep waffling on the right time to tell the internet I'm back is that I don't really want to come back. Avoiding social media hasn't exactly improved my life (if anything, I'm just playing more Pokemon Go), but neither has the new habit of peeking surreptitiously at the first few posts visible on any given site and then closing it again with a sigh. It may be time to stop doing things halfway.

This isn't as big a deal as I'm making it sound, but part of the problem is that if I don't say anything about a decision I'm making, the decision doesn't actually get made and I carry on indefinitely with all my useless thoughts. So when I got the email today about renewing my additional userpic package, I picked out 70 of them to delete, and withheld my ten bucks. I wish I could have dropped ten at a time or something but such is life.

Anyway, you won't notice much of a change on my own blog, but I'm headed to New Orleans for a minibreak on Monday and probably won't take a laptop, and then it's Thanksgiving. So if I seem like I've vanished, it's because of that, not because of anything related to this post: the "decision" relates only to my activity on my friends page. There's more Wolfsbane in the works and it will get here sooner or later.

I also saved all of those deleted icons in their own special folder so I can reinstate them if there comes a time for it. No burned bridges.

Like I said before, you can defriend me or speak your mind here without fear of repercussions. Peace.

I'm still not feeling ready to return to reading my social sites, and I'm not sure how long it will be. Probably not more than a couple days, but this is the first time that I'm leaving without intending to scroll down and get myself caught up at some point, and I'm a little worried that someone's having a crisis on a personal level and I'll be oblivious. So I just wanted to make a couple things clear.

First, I care about your well-being more than I care about your opinions. If you need a place to vent, cry, or hide, I can provide one. The only thing I won't tolerate is a request to bar the door to anyone else because of their opinions.

Second, if you don't want me on your flist anymore due to my silence or for any other reason, I am totally cool with being dropped without warning, no hard feelings. If I haven't dropped you first, you can assume that I want to be your friend, so I'd probably appreciate a chance to reconcile, but we all have our own policies for flist maintenance and I respect yours.

With that taken care of, here's some rambling about the movies I've seen lately.

X-Men: ApocalypseCollapse )
Doctor StrangeCollapse )

That's all I can think of, although I do have a lot of TV to post about. More Wolfsbane coming in a bit.
