Title: Both Ends of a Candle
Author:[personal profile] nuraicha
Rating: G
Pairing(s)/Character(s): Twelve/Missy, Twelve/Simm!Master. Twelfth Doctor, Missy, Simm!Master, Bill Pots.
Warnings: implied and forced mind control
Spoilers: it's set after The Pilot (s10e01) but it isn't compliant with how the series is going. Spoilers for a character who appears in the "coming soon" trailer but hasn't shown up yet in the series.
Summary: Something was out of time. Something was wrong, and the Doctor couldn’t pinpoint what it was. It made him feel nervous, wary, and protective of the human woman beside him. The Doctor is always clueless when he has to face who he knows best.

Disclaimer: Doctor Who and its characters aren't mine, I don't gain money or any kind of economic profit from this.
Author's note: Title taken from the song "Fury" by Muse, because its lyrics are kind of fitting for Twelve and the Master, in my opinion. Also, I'm new to this comm, hello!

After two weeks tapping around and climbing a bit instead of gym sessions, and following a late night with a morning blood draw, I don't think that's too bad. (I skipped my squats in case I had dizziness: dizziness with 100kg more on your shoulders is not good.)

Twin Peaks, the Return

Of all of the TV shows that I've been looking forward to, Twin Peak's return has been close to the top of the list. I'm not necessarily a David Lynch fanatic but I love his work, and was cautiously optimistic that Twin Peaks would be among his better works.

It looks like I was right. I think it was a good move to make him the only director for all 18 episodes, and I'm frankly amazed that he got that many out of Showtime. Anyway, here are my thoughts on the first two episodes.

In my dream last night, I was annoyed at my cats for not sufficiently appreciating the in-ground pool I had installed specifically for them.

Can you blame me? I think not.

Just about packed for the weekend except for lunch, toiletries, and bus ride music. Which means most of the worry's gone, and all that's left is restless anticipation - and the occasional spot-check, like when I remember I need extra batteries for my MP3 player. Also writing down directions to and from the bus stop, but that's hardly making sure to bring enough socks and underwear.

It's not going to be real until I'm stepping into the hotel lobby. Until then, it's just nerves.

How to find me at Wiscon

[personal profile] mount_oregano
I’ll be on two panels and one reading this weekend at Wiscon 41, a feminist-focused SF convention:

Saturday, May 27, 1 to 2:15 p.m., Conference 4, Broad Universe Rapid Fire Reading. Eight members (including me) of Broad Universe, an organization for women writers and editors of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, will read brief works. I’ll read an essay about how much money Miguel de Cervantes earned for one of the greatest novels of all time, Don Quixote de la Mancha. You’ll be horrified by how little.

Saturday, May 27, 4 to 5:15 p.m., Conference 5, Women of Atheism. Four of us will speak on not believing in the existence of deities and how that affects our perspectives and lived experiences. Come and talk about what you believe and don’t believe.

Sunday, May 28, 1 to 2:15 p.m., University C, Speculative Fiction in Translation. Rachel S. Cordasco, Arrate Hidalgo, and I will talk about who gets translated, why, and what you might enjoy reading. If you come, you’ll receive a reading list, maybe some M&Ms, and even a free book (supplies are limited).

This whole thing where I don't sleep between 3 am and 5 am is not really working for me. I took a benadryl and even that wasn't enough to combat the itching for a while. Why do we need mosquitoes again?

On the plus side, I already had the high key "I'm going to be homeless come October 1!" freakout to L and she talked me down ( I might catastrophize a little. I've actually gotten much better at not doing it over the years, but this whole thing really trips my anxiety wires), so I didn't freak out too much last night when I transferred $$$ to my checking account in order to cover the check for 10% of the down payment when I go to sign the contract tomorrow.


It's still a tentative appointment at the moment (I will be confirming shortly), but yesterday afternoon I got a call from the mortgage broker, who was like, "Mike just told me you had an accepted offer. You didn't call and tell me!" (Mike is my lawyer. He works in the office next door to the mortgage broker.) and I said the realtor had told me not to until I had the signed contract, and she was like, "I like to get ahead of the game so you don't have to come in to sign stuff twice!" Especially since I have to take the LIRR to get there (the pitfalls of using people recced by family members who live on Long Island), which means leaving work at like 12:30 tomorrow. Eep!

Keep your fingers crossed, folks. This could be one step closer!

And since it's Wednesday, we've got books!

What I've just finished
Thick as Thieves by Megan Whelan Turner. I meant to reread the whole series before this but didn't get to it. I didn't really need to either, as it wasn't heavily dependent on previous books (...though I guess the Attolian's identity was? Though who else could it have been?). There was a lot more ersatz Assyrian poetry than I was expecting, spoilers )

So I definitely recommend it if you've enjoyed the series so far, and if you haven't read the whole series, I highly recommend it. The second book especially is AMAZING.

What I'm reading now
Aftermath: Empire's End by Chuck Wendig, since it came from the library. It's fine, I guess. It's mostly the events leading up to the battle of Jakku. We finally get more Mon Mothma POV and spoilers )

What I'm reading next

No headache today, but I didn't get rid of yesterday's until nearly bedtime even though I tried to nap. I think that drinking extra water helped more than the attempt to nap. Pity I can't drink lots of water and then try napping. Sadly, it doesn't tend to work so well.

I'm probably going to try to nap again today. I feel like I might be able to, and my legs are aching in a way that tells me my body needs sleep.

I wrote 300+ words yesterday. It's not much, but it's more than I've managed most days this month.

I'm trying to come up with ideas for things to do while Scott's off work on Friday (and of things that need to be done then). It'll be my birthday, so I want some of it to be fun. Cordelia is currently planning to be out that evening. I think she's clear that we're not going to host movie night on my birthday. She may still ask, though, if none of the other girls can host. I just don't want to spend the evening stuck in our bedroom so that the girls can pretend we're not home. Spending those hours outside the house sounds like a kind of hell.

I don't have a New Book Wednesday yet, but here's some good stuff that happened:

* We got a new mattress! Our old mattress was sagging on each side and had a hump in the middle and was getting increasingly painful. The new one was delivered yesterday and so far, so good. At the store we looked at a fancy one that sucked the heat out of your body while you were sleeping, but it was more than twice what ours cost and I did wonder how comfortable it would be in the winter.

* The paperback edition of The Murderbot Diaries is back in stock at Barnes & Noble, Powells, Indigo, BooksaMillion, Book Depository, and Amazon US, if you were still looking for a copy.

* I cleared out our guestroom closet and my office and got rid of a lot of random crap.

* I've been trying to get Murderbot 4 started and for about two weeks and finally got the first scene written. It and Murderbot 3 are not sold yet, so keep your fingers crossed.

* I got a Raksura Patreon story started and about halfway finished.

* When we were at Comicpalooza, we walked past the end of the row where one of the big Star Wars cosplaying groups had their booth, and they had a full-size backdrop of a Death Star corridor for people to take pictures in front of. One of the people in a stormtrooper costume was standing in front of it, and as we slowed down to look at backdrop, and the stormtrooper did the voice-synthesizer "Move along, move along" bit. It was pretty hilarious.

* We also saw a full-size Taun-taun with rider costume.
