Houdini's Sister

Christine Hamm

In the end, there's always the girl who understands
locks and a bone-toothed comb, the one who crawls under the table,
crams into the mouse hole, the one who gives the witch the wrong
directions. There's always the girl who knows the language of rabbits
and convinces them to let her ride astride, the girl who can live on
breadcrumbs and fog, who clings to the giant's ankle until he gets
tired of stumbling around the kitchen, looking for a cooking pot, and
falls asleep. There's always one left, the one who cuts off her hair
to make a rope (if that's what it takes), the one who talks the
blue-bellied salmon into carrying her across the river, the one
who takes the diamonds of her tears and sells them for a good pair of boots.

how do blogging

Oct. 14th, 2011 | 01:54 am

What is this? I have finally managed to get lj mobile to run on my Nook? This means I may actually read everyone's posts, at least in theory. Doesn't really mean I'll be any better at writing them.

I feel like I could probably just replace 90% of my non-fandom entries with this meme:

Emotionally Volatile Bear Meme: write heartbreaking account of current feelings / laugh at yourself for being so dramatic an hour later

tmi and also robins

Feb. 5th, 2011 | 12:21 pm
mood: crazywhat happen

so yes, no sleep, long time without sleep, pretty much losing control of both whatever part of my brain controls the ability to make grammatical sense and the part that has the wisdom to not talk about Robin porn in public

here is a tmi about my day:

i have spent a large chunk of day either reading words in a robot voice or speaking with an incredibly horrible russian accent. i can't seem to type without saying what i'm typing out loud. that was not the tmi part.

the actual tmi part is that since the plasma donation people were like 'gtfo and fix your social security card and yes that' i am instead sitting in my living room writing porn about Robins, Jason and Tim to be specific but that is not surprising considering my recent tastes in both porn and Robins. anyway so idk if it is really porn so much as it is mostly dialogue but there is mild humiliation and accidental voyeurism/outing and specifically outing of previous Bruce/Jason and Bruce/Tim and oh my god when did I become a person capable of writing Batman/Robin in any capacity like i am simultaneously squicked the hell out and super into it while just writing it so

basically the part of my brain that should be telling me to stfu and not post this is currently asleep. so i am just going to giggle in a vaguely unsettling manner and hit post before i think better of my actions

i drew a jason on the whiteboard on my fridge i tried to give his thighs justice but also i hate dry erase markers so you know


like holy shit really, how is it possible that just one night of no sleep is seriously effecting my brain function/judgement to this degree i am usually much more resilient to sleep deprivation if nothing else

dear everyone, thank you for not unsubscribing a million years ago, i am the most ridiculous person and i'm probably not even that amusing in my manner of ridiculosity so

Azkatraz Con Report & Related Incidents

Jul. 25th, 2009 | 03:58 am
location: brookings, or
music: tonks and the aurors

It all started at the HBP line party.

Well, that's actually a lie. It started when elven_freckles's sister and other friends had to back out on their plans to go to Azkatraz. It's been years since I was fully into Harry Potter fandom - I hadn't reread any of the books since the 7th came out, and even before then I wasn't really reading much fic any more. So when she asked whether I wanted to drive 7/8 hours to hit up a convention for a fandom I was barely even involved in, my response was..."maybe?"

Then I watched HBP, and suddenly couldn't remember why in hell I had ever let my HP love wane. I can't help it - I'm massively multifandom, and it inevitably leads to me obsessing over a few of them at a time, relegating the rest to the back of my brain until they cycle up to the front again. So I did some flaily vlogging and hi-fived Beka (elven_freckles) and decided to go forth and conquer the con...in a really last-minute sort of way.

Only we couldn't go for the whole thing, because Saturday night (also, incidentally, the night Amanda Fucking Palmer was in Oakland) we were scheduled to play a show together at Centre Stage. And Sunday she'd have to do music stuff for her church in the morning, so we wouldn't be able to make it until the Prison Break Ball. But hey, we figured - why not? Besides, then we would be able to get by with only a day pass and the Ball ticket. In all honesty, if we had been in the position to go for the whole time, I don't know if I would have been willing to go at all - Azkatraz might not have been asking Creation Con prices, but tickets were still pretty damn spendy in comparison to the cons I usually consider going to. As awesome as Wrock Around the Rock sounded, I doubt I would have been willing to hand over $100. Unemployed + broke because my former roommate disappeared and owes me money = not too enthusiastic about spending $$ on cons that don't seem to go particularly out of their way to be inexpensive.

So we spent the next four days practicing for our show and trying to pull together costumes/Ball outfits. Saturday night came, we set up, and...around four or five people showed up who weren't our immediate relatives. We valiantly played on, despite the fact that once again there was no one there young enough to understand why geeks covering Lady Gaga and Cobra Starship and the Mario Kart Lovesong on guitar and mandola was for lulz and great justice (there was also, for the record, quite a lot of Beka's fantastic original stuff). We covered Snape vs. Snape on piano and standup bass, for no other reason really other than we'd been listening to a lot of Ministry of Magic and I'd gone "we should play some wrock!" while we were sitting around rehearsing. And that we both really, really love that song.

We set up a time to meet and the next day and - oh, this is going to get long, isn't it? vehicles in flames! shock! loss! wrock stars! peanut butter! chris rankin!Collapse )

okay, Beka. your turn to fill in the gaps. XD ILU!

ps. going out of town again for a week, driving I-5 augh wish me luck.

anti-angel pie

May. 17th, 2009 | 03:11 pm

the night of watching 4.22, me and fadedrunes made pie!

I wanted to try a cut-out crust on top, and at first I thought, maybe the Devil's Gate symbol from AHBL...but then I was like, hey, how bout something more S4? And since I'd already done the Devil's Trap from Bobby's panic room, I figured, hey, how about Anna's GTFO Angels symbol?

and the angels can"t have itCollapse )

it was DELICIOUS, let me tell you.
