My mind was a rather strange place last night as I dreamed that I was not Batman and not exactly Bryce Wayne but someone in between. I was investigating something at a girl's boarding school that reminded me of the main castle in Prague. As in there was the entire little city in this small space, it was a claustrophobic sort of dream. Also at some point in the dream, I turned into a student who was lost and couldn't figure anything out.
I'm pretty sure I know why I had such a dream, that was because last night I watched the season finale of Hannibal
and then before going to bed finished reading The A.B.C. Murders
by Agatha Christie and there were unexpected parallels going on.( Spoilers for Hannibal, entire season and A.B.C Murders )
Otherwise, I'm finding it weird to not be heading off to work and so am spending a lot of my time writing and preparing to head to the ALA conference in Chicago from June 27th to July 1st. I'm excited and scared as I know there's more I need to be doing to really be at my best for looking for a job. I have blog posts that I should get writing but mainly that words I keep getting at the moment are fandom ones. I did get some minicards made up for myself, which I love. They have all my pertinent information on them and as my Wordpress blog is pretty much my digital portfolio, they should work.
On Wednesday, I went to the Detroit Zoo and had an amazing time, it was wonderful to just wander around and enjoy the crowds of kids and the beautiful weather. The only annoying part was that when I was trying to get a picture of the prairie dogs, I missed where the concrete changed and skinned my elbow and acquired a nice bruise on my knee. I'm still a little sore since I didn't fall all the way down, I took a major bump. I think I might end up doing another post with just those pictures or at least some of my favorites for those who don't follow me elsewhere to see them.
In terms of fandom writing, I wrote a femslash piece for the Marvel Femslash Prompt Fest
, its a little out of my normal round but the prompt clicked for me. Harder than Steel
, which is Raven/Emma and explicit.
Today has also been a busy day as the DE was a prompt one and I wrote a number of fics
, some of I might expand out and I'm still open for more prompts there.
It was also FicFriday over on Twitter and I'm still taking prompts there as well.( Twitter Fics )
