Curved wicker basketNot much to say besides Chapters 14 and 15 have been posted, but apparently I double posted Chapter 14 on Archive of Our Own so I’ll have to remedy that.  Speaking of AO3, I donated $10, which gives me a vote on stuff or something.  I should probably look into that lol.  The site has been nominated for a Hugo Nebula Award, which is…pretty fucking awesome.  They’re a much smaller site than, but I’m only posting this story there due to’s draconian censorship rules, and tbh I like the AO3 community a little more.  It seems cozier and more closely knit.

Project: Story Audio Recording
Northern Lights
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Type: Fanfiction (FFVII) Novel
Status: Recording
Progress: Preparing to edit Chapter 1

Yup, you read that right.  I actually finished recording Chapter 1 this past Friday, and now I’m preparing to edit.  I’m looking forward to figuring that out.  I’m not sure how long it’s going to take, but I’m hoping it’ll only be a couple of months.  To bring up AO3 again, apparently you can post audio recordings or podfic on their site.  I think it’s something you have to import, but I’m definitely going to look into it.  That’s just going to be audio whereas I want to do more visuals with this on YouTube.  Ahh I can’t wait!

In Progress

  • TV Show Review: The Umbrella Academy – I started just writing my thoughts about the show as opposed to summarizing it first.   It’s a post that’s going to cater towards people who’ve either watched the show or don’t care about being spoiled.
  • Book Review: The Habitation of the Blessed by Catherynne M. Valente – It’s been a tiring week, and I was worried I wasn’t going to get anything done on this even on the days I scheduled it, but it’s coming along.
  • Video Game Review: Piczle Colors – I’m hoping to have this done this week.  Since it’s a puzzle game as opposed to one with a narrative, it shouldn’t take as long.

I have a weekend off coming up then the wedding and then it’s my birthday weekend.  I’m seeing Avengers: End Game, and I can”t wait.  We already have tickets, because my brother is on that lol.
