This was then.

First They Came -- by Martin Niemöller
First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the ill and disabled
And I did not speak out
Because I was not ill or disabled
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me
And there was no one left
To speak out for me

This is now.

I sent fannish gift packages to due South fen around the world: Hungary, New Zealand, Trinidad, and of course Canada. I bought bakery treats to bring to work for my co-workers, and I told the salesperson at the bakery all about More Joy Day and told her to "keep the change -- that's for More Joy Day". Along with [personal profile] sl_walker I co-created and am co-admin of a new dSC6D and Twin Peaks forum Both Sides of the Border for which we chose More Joy Day as the opening day. I had IRL More Joy Day dinner with [personal profile] verushka70 and we did 10-minute due South snippet word-sprints in honor of More Joy Day. I offered to beta (and the offer was accepted) for a due South writer whose fic has been WIP's for several years and who is now wanting to post again. I connected a fangirl who needed help from an Irish-speaking fangirl for Irish dialogue in her fic with an apropos Irish fangirl. I gifted [personal profile] sdwolfpup with a year of DW Premium account.

I didn't manage to do the daily postings for this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge which has been running annually from January 1 to January 15. I saved in a folder all the comments made by those who did post for the challenge and I will read them all, albeit a bit late. Today's challenge, Day 15, the last day of this year's Fandom Snowflake Challenge is "In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers".

Short and simple: LOVE to the mods past and present of Fandom Snowflake Challenge, and all y'all of my flist and my circle and my followers!!!

We are in some hard times, flisties...so here I share some inspirado with y'all: "May we all be able to get up every day and, in spite of our pain and loss and fear, put on our boots and vest and plan to destroy the Empire."

And here is the rest of the article -- "The Importance of General Organa" -- from which that quote was taken.

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*
