Blanket permission to use my fanworks for anything fannish as long as you link back to my fanwork and share your own link with me..."fanwork inspired by" is all LOVE. But please contact me first...I will always say yes, but might ask for you to delay if it involves a work of mine that's still in WIP stage.

My dS and C6D fanworks appear in many LJ and DW comms, and are all archived at AO3 site.

This month continues to be the month of badly-fucked-by-RL. I just found out about Janet Wright:

Janet Wright of "Corner Gas," "due South," et al has died.

Just one day after I boosted the signal for the Safety Pin Movement, I am now retracting that boost because I've gotten a warning from the very watchful [personal profile] grey853 that white supremacists have co-opted the wearing of the safety pin.

I can't craft my own coherent thoughts right now, so here's a link to a well-written article and vids. Too much despair this week already, and now Leonard Cohen....

I keep thinking of these words from Hamlet when I think about the transition from Obama to Trump: "that was to this, Hyperion to a Satyr".

Everything in my fanbrain connects somehow to due South. Now I want All The Fic about Ray Kowalski responding to the Cubs winning the World Series after 108 years of not winning (and yes, I myself am working on fic for this).

BTW, I am a born and raised Chicagoan. Last night between midnight and 1:00 AM I went driving up and down my local main street participating in the car-horn honking and banner-waving.

For this year's due South Canadian Six Degrees Big Bang [personal profile] mific wrote and illustrated a wonderful F/K fic of adventure, danger and romance titled
In Which Ray and Fraser Go in Search of the Hand of Franklin ; I wrote a complementary piece for it titled Twelve Questing Pieces. Both of these fics are rated mature-to-explicit and with no applicable archive warnings.

Mific's 25,325-word work will appeal to a wide readership while I expect that my 1,121-word work -- being both poetry and unconventional format -- will have a rather limited readership. The unconventionality is that for each of the twelve chapters of the original fic I wrote a chapter in a poetry form, selecting and arranging them chapter by chapter in a specific order to create an acrostic that spells out FRANKLIN HAND. To see how that works, read down the initial letters of the twelve poetry forms that correspond in order to the twelve chapters:

Fibonacci Sequence poem
Rispetto poem
Alphabetical poem
Nonet poem
Katauta Sedoka poem
Lai poem
Italian Sonnet poem
Novelinee Sequence poem

Haibun poem
Aubade poem
Nursery Rhyme poem
Decastich poem

[community profile] vagabondage (Zen) was one of my most favorite people, not only in fandom but also IRL. I can't even begin to quantify how much light is gone from the world with her gone...or how much light is still to be found in the memories and her fic and her vids.

I used to always treat her for dinner out on the Friday before or after her birthday, so this is a weekend particularly filled with my thoughts of her.

I have been working on a poem about her -- I wanted to post it here for what would have been her 50th birthday -- but it's still too painful because the poem got its start when it was going to be given to her rather than "just" about her.


*torn between crying for Zen not here or smiling for all the years she was*

[profile] sl_walker has done a lovely pensive!Turnbull fanart piece and gifted it to me. And -- awesome of awesomes! -- has created a "Ride_Forever freeform tag" -- it reads as follows: "Damn you Ride_Forever (I still mean that with love)" -- LOL.

Check out the Turnbull art and more gorgeous art in her "Arts and Ends" series.

Before I completely die of the cute, here, have an adorable pic of PM Justin Trudeau with Canada's newly-born panda cubs Jia Panpan (meaning Canadian Hope) and Jia Yueyue (meaning Canadian Joy), and the accompanying New Yorker article: "Canada Fears Photo of Prime Minister with Pandas Could Worsen American Refugee Crisis".
