Happy Father's Day! Remember, you are fathers, not Dads. (g)

Writing: I'm working on Dakmir this morning, hammering out the magic system. I'm also rethinking the plot a bit--still mulling that over in my head.

I've decided to create a beta-group journal for Dakmir, similar to what my friend Kris has done for her Talar work. I'm going to put the cultural write-ups into that journal, and once I get the story itself straightened out, I will post some of the writing work in there, as well.

Workshop? You know, I just thought of something. Why not start an LJ writers' workshop? Does anyone want to do that? If not, no problem. Just let me know if any of you on my friends list are interested, and I'll create a community.

Books: My copy of Snakecharm by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes arrived yesterday. Yea! More Zane and Danica. *beams* Also, Mark has finished His Majesty's Dragon, so I now have that to read. I'll be busy for a while.

On the Web: It used to be that I spent much of my time with or at my website. Now, I spend my time at my journal.
I reside in her mind.

HP: I Ship Paul/Lilith

So, I just skimmed over some commentary about an HP fandom war that started in 2001, got rather nasty, and may still be ongoing.

I had no idea that there was such animosity in some quarters between people who like to pair up Harry/Hermione and those who prefer to pair up Harry/Ginny. I won't even get into the whole 'person who created a lot of false online identities to stir up drama' thing; that's just too bizarre for me to wrap my mind around.

Geeze! These people need to get lives! Or do they want to be 40 years old and still arguing about meaningless crap like this?

I think I'll just stick to shipping Paul and Lilith in two_alleys_rpg.

Though I do fondly remember that awfully fun SPH shipping frenzy we had once in blackbooks. (g)

Mug! Okay, I am entirely too silly. I custom-designed and ordered a mug at Spreadshirt that says "I Ship Paul/Lilith" on it. So the people at my office can be mystified.

Hm! I wonder if anyone makes Braille coffee mugs? *goes to find out*
