With the new user agreement I'm finally giving up on LJ (I know, way way late). Won't be cross-posting from DW anymore, because, well, it's probably obvious why. Dreamwidth all the way now, friendos! I've got the same username overthere, so I'm easy to find should anyone wish to.

Not going to go into details, but my recent job change has been such a huge, good change! I mean, I liked my old job and old coworkers - it's just that the work tempo was getting too much for me. New job is just so wonderful. I've got the same kind of job, just not at the same break-neck speed.

I thought I'd have more Internet time now, but it seems I have more IRL people to hang out with that I remember XD Now that I have the energy and time I've ended up with people coming over almost every day of the week. It's a strange, old-yet-new, happy feeling of having time for friends and family. I will get back to online stuff as well, soon, but right now I have to get offline life back in balance again (it's been out of wack for almost four years, it seems...)

Found some basic d20 based rules online (well, several) and have homebrewed them into a steampunk/solarpunk fantasy thing for a game I'm DM-ing on Monday. Watching Critical Role has motivated me to expand outside my comfort zone as a DM - great show, btw, if you have time for 80+ episodes of 2-3 hours each.

My other source of inspiration for this game is the TV show Leverage. I'm going to let my players start out with one skill maxed out (yay, Mary Sues game~) and just let them have fun from there. We can't meet that often due to work and living far apart, which means they haven't had the chance to level much. Thus we're trying a "cut loose and have fun" kind of game. I'm going to give them some challenges, but sometimes it can be fun to be a little overpowered, right? :)

In case any fellow dice rpg fans are reading this, got any game recs? I currently own "Fallen Reich", "Blue Rose" and several homebrews + am going to get the latest Dungeons & Dragons, but am always looking for interesting things to try! Especially if they're more focused on roleplaying than on rule reading.

Again I've spent a year reading books (as you tend to do if you spend 3 hours every work day trapped on a train). Here they all are, summarized for my own amusement and also in case anyone is looking for book recs; or anti-recs ;)

I'm waaaay late with this summary, but it's because 1) my comic shop was late notifying me the comic had come in, and 2) #16 & #17 left me feeling rather...blank.

Also, I'm suffering burn out, but that's more of a side note.

Soooooo, I've been very, very close to burn out since mid-2016. I won't go into detail as to why, but let's just say it's work-related and health-related both. Thus, I've been inactive in every possible way everywhere.

Just wanted to note that down here, as a reminder to myself to not do this to myself again. Hopefully I'll be getting better come February, when I will be making a lot of life changes. Hopefully.

I got so, so lucky again this year and got not one, but two wonderful stories in the Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell fandom :D

If you're in that fandom (and Childermass/Segundus is a ship you enjoy), I definitely rec these two lovely stories! Read the tags though, one of them is gory in parts.

Open Roads
Pairing: John Childermass/John Segundus
Rating: Teen
Summary: “You did not tell me that the magician was part faerie,” Segundus said, with great dignity, from where he was tied, wrist and ankle, to one of the few well-preserved stone pillars by means of somewhat incongruous rose vines.
Tags: Gen or Pre-Slash

Reap What You Sow
Pairing: John Childermass/John Segundus
Rating: Explicit
Summary: When Childermass is targeted by those who would use the Raven King’s Book for their own gain, he turns to Mr Segundus for help.
Tags: Abortion, Body Horror, Ectopic Pregnancy, Erectile Dysfunction, Intercrural Sex, Hurt/Comfort, Mpreg, Oral Sex, Post-Canon, Yuleporn, Yuletide Treat
Note from me: Just fyi, this is Mpreg in the sense that the Alien movie has Mpreg. So if you're looking for the giving-birth-to-human-child kind of Mpreg, this is not for you.

So, after about 2,5 months of non-stop overtime I'm more or less a wrung out rag now that the holidays are here. Luckily I'm starting a new job come February, so the stress will be reduced soon.

I've actually been preeeeetty close to burn out, which has been 0 fun. Thus it will take me a while to catch up with everything online that I'm behind on, seeing as the least hint of stress currently leaves me an exhausted heap of emotions. Luckily I didn't completely hit the wall, so these stress related shutdowns should stop as soon as I've had a bit of a rest.

But yeah, definitely looking forward to a newer, slower work pace.

In other words, it was a good movie. I rewarded myself with an interlude at the movies tonight - seeing as I have been and will continue to be working non-stop 24/7 until my vacation starts at the end of December ;_; - and it was a good choice; gave me a lot to think about.

I can't believe I'd forgotten about the Sapir-Whorf theory! Well, not forgotten forgotten, but that I haven't been trying to weave it more into my universal translator world-building. It was my favorite linguistic theory back at uni, I really should incorporate it more in my own writing. Hmm, I think I shall have the garnea have no concept/emotion of fear or anger, only sadness and grief. That will make for both interesting culture clashes, linguistic difficulties and works with their way of life. Yay, aliens!

Arrival made me want to read the short story it is based on. It also made me finally sniff out the story Three Worlds Collide which I read way back when and really liked but lost track of. Recommended reading as basis for interesting discussions.

Oh well, time to go to sleep and then get back to work. Hopefully I'll get enough done tomorrow that I finally can let myself read all the other stories in the Reverse Bangs I've participated in! Check out i_reversebang and ds9reversebang if you're curious; a lot of lovely art and fic over there! Fandoms are Inception and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

These are the fics I wrote for the exchanges:

Dreams of Others
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Arthur/Eames
Rating: Explicit
Tags: Alternate Universe - Magical Realism, Canon-Typical Violence, Implied/Referenced Abuse, Sexual Content
Summary: Hiding out in-between jobs should be an uneventful thing, laying low and keeping out of the cops' search lights. But Eames learned long ago that neither Arthur nor Ariadne can resist a client who might be a target for the Others, and this latest one was sent their way courtesy of Dominic Cobb himself. Resigned to help Arthur and Ariadne play knights in shining armor Eames has no idea exactly how fast this supposed quick-fix project is about to go downhill.

Spy Games
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Pairing: Elim Garak/Julian Bashir
Rating: Mature
Tags: Holodecks/Holosuites, Roleplay, Xenophilia, Cardassians with tails
Summar: Garak and Bashir spend some time on the holodeck, enjoying a spy novel of Bashir's.
