I need a sticky post!


I'm Danielle, and I'm partners with [personal profile] lilacsigil. We've been together since 1997, and we're hoping to get legally married one of these decades. We live together in rural Australia with two cats and a veggie garden.

This is a good place to say hi, if you're the introducing kind, but you absolutely don't have to. Just seems handy to have a place for it.

About me and where I live.

No keen squid cravings today, who knew. But I could murder a salmon filet. If I had one and a pan and a knife om om om.

But I don't.


Recipe Friday
Something I cooked recently:
Pistachio and Raspberry Brownies

This recipe, guys, seriously - I have to stop falling for untested, ingredient-substituting recipes, because I am a sucker. There's cocoa powder in the list of ingredients and not in the procedure. The bake time is wrong, wrong, wrong - I don't think they tested it with eggs instead of chia seeds. It needs to cook longer and slower than they say. And with some foil over the top to stop the nuts from burning. I read the comments before I baked, saw that people had them come out runny, and dumped in a bunch more almond meal and the mysterious cocoa (which from the photo looks like they made some kind of glaze out of? IDK) until I got a suitable looking texture, then baked.

Having said that, they taste great and seem to be keeping great. And I'll make them again. Because sucker.


Something I'm idly planning to cook in the future:
The River Cottage’s Vegetable Bouillon (a.k.a. Souper Mix)

In my eternal search for stock I don't really want to make and skim and ugh, this seems like a flavour base type thing that I could try. With no garlic or onion. (Leeks are so great! I eat all the leeks!)


Something I have concrete plans to cook soon:
Random balls of varying degree of FODMAP suitability and dubious health eating advice:
Pumpkin No Bake Energy Bites
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Energy Bites
Choc Crackle Peanut Protein Balls

BALLS.

Who am I kidding? I'm gonna buy a big bag of potatoes, make a ton of gnocchi and this:
Focaccia Bari-style.

That is why I bought one of your fancy American ricers after all. Heh heh heh heh. Not sure why the sinister laugh but it feels right. Probably because I read this: These 25 tweets from someone who is “definitely not a wolf pretending to be a man” are comedy genius

st_aurafina: Harold Finch's face (POI: Harold)
Insta Rec
I wrote a Supergirl fic of necessary hugs: Lights Will Guide You Home (Kara Danvers/Daisy Johnson, General) and guess what, [personal profile] monanotlisa wrote a beautiful and adorable coda for it: Hide Away in Daylight (Kara Danvers/Daisy Johnson, General) Everything is squishy hugs and nothing hurts.


The State of Me
Oh, man, I don't know if it's the prednisolone taper, but I'm so woozy and full of fogs. It might be that my GI tract got so inflamed that I couldn't absord oral meds, so now I'm basically re-establishing my Pristiq and other meds all at once? I'm foggy and I have a concentration window of about two minutes, and my balance is kind of fucked. Not very me at all. To be fair, my suffering is not great. But I feel like a balloon animal. Maybe a dachshund. Maybe a giraffe?

Oh, but [personal profile] lilacsigil has just come back from the street to tell me that the cafe that makes the great salt and pepper squid has it on their specials board today, so I am getting squiddy with my lunch. I have such fish cravings since I've been sick. Fish and nuts. All the oils. Get in my body, oils. And squids.


NaNo Round-up
I'm picking through the scattered debris of my NaNo adventure to see what actually happened in that weird month.

- Finished the POI Five Things fic, though one of the parts is decidedly odd with only some good bits. The good bits might sprout something better, though, so I shall see. Total word count: 31,767.
- Finished the POI Sentinel/Guide fic, though I think it needs some fleshing out in parts. I quite like this one, actually? It's iddy as all get out and has lots of hugging and touching and bonding. I think, once I've got my Yuletide sorted, I'll work on this one. Total word count: 16,229
- Wrote one chapter of the Bucky fic. It was a weird but necessary chapter. 7266 words, taking that fic to a total of 62,044, holy shit.
- The Supergirl fic of necessary hugs, which I've already posted. (2032 words)
- The POI fixit fic is where it got weird and throw-words-at-the-wall-ish. I'm a little scared to look. I had a fever. 13,828 words, some of which may not be consecutive or legible.
- Last minute desperation words, Harold Finch competence porn. 2602 words. I want to finish this, because it's fun, and because I like exploring Harold's hidden skillsets.

st_aurafina: A shiny green chilli (Food: Green Chilli)
Recipe Friday

Something I cooked recently:
Lime, coconut and mint balls (CW for talk of 'healthy eating')

I'm on the hunt for some kind of snack type thing that isn't going to upset my FODMAP issues, and I'm a bit wary of using dates which is the standard glue for this kind of food. Dates = fructose = bellyache. These were mostly almond meal for the solid part. I had to mess around with proportions to get the right texture to roll them into balls, but they are good. The flavour improved over time. You need to keep them in the fridge or they get very soft - I think I'd add a whole cup of coconut next time I make them. And a smidge less mint, because wow, mint is strong straight out of the garden.

ETA: I just remembered that when I made these, I toasted the almond meal and the coconut, because raw almond meal is bleh to me.

Something I have concrete plans to cook soon:
This is a bit of a cheat because I make it every week, but I've been meaning to write down the recipe so I don't lose it from my mind (because I'm sure to stop making it soon and forget how.)
Toasted Granola )

Something I'm idly planning to cook in the future:
Chard and Feta Filo Bundt
I'm craving spinach and it really needs a cut-back in the garden, so this looks like an option. And I love that it's in a bundt tin - it would be really easy to serve slices of it that way.
st_aurafina: Rainbow DNA (Default)
I something something made it to 50K in NaNo. I don't know why I didn't quit, and I don't know what I actually wrote, and what are words anyway? In the last desperate hours, I wrote some fic about Harold Finch feeding a kitten with an eyedropper.

I finished some stuff. I wrote some crack. I need to get onto Yuletide now.

st_aurafina: Rainbow DNA (Default)
I'm alive, but complicated, with medical stuff snowballing. I had a systemic allergic reaction to an antibiotic and now I look like the photo they put in warning messages about measles vaccines.

I'm coming through the worst of it, and hopefully today is my last day of IV hydrocortisone, but I am dopey as hell and not really aware of much. And itchy. Itch has to be one of the lesser circles of hell, IJS.

Still trying to keep commenting. Thank you for all your well wishes on my last post. Hope you Thanksgiving havers had a nice one.

*heart heart heart*
st_aurafina: (NaNo: Sleep)
So, anyway, I got sick. Something bit me, I don't know what, but I woke up with a leg the colour and shape of a hotdog and a fever that made me get lost in my own bedroom. I mean, it obviously wasn't deadly. But it sure was germy because I'm infected.

I hate being so sick that all you can do is sit and cry in bewilderment. I am really bad at being that sick.

Then there was interesting investigations with the doctor, and pen marks all over the biggest and reddest part of my leg, and I'm on antibiotics, but wow, I feel terrible. I can feel every lymph node in my body right now, istg. And yet, I'm still at work because people in my trade are notoriously lousy at taking days off. (It's hard to justify the cost, plus my locum has her childcare all sorted out, and I mean, it's not like I'm stuck in bed or anything. Ugh, self-care, why is it so hard?)

ETA: since I left this post hanging, my leg blew up even more, and I've been in hospital on IV antibiotics. They're not admitting me, yet, but it's possible if I don't show a vast improvement. At the moment, they've sent me home to stay 'in bed with toilet privileges'. Some hours later, I am disappoint that (a) I am not instantly better and (b) staying in bed when you have to is a whole other extremely tedious thing.

At least I am very lucky to have [personal profile] lilacsigil to brain some sense into me and to bring me meds and coffee and a muffin and to remind me that it's okay not to be at work.

Ugh, I have to go back to the hospital at 8:30 tonight to get more ABs, and again tomorrow and it's very tedious. And I thought I'd get so much NaNo done, but strangely enough, when you're sick and uncomfortable, your concentration is not great, and I am probably never going to catch my word debt from being sick all week and. I mean. Honestly, I'm really bad at this shit. My leg seems to be less swollen, though? Still really red, but instead of a red shiny hotdog, it's more like an old shrivelled wrinkly hotdog.

And onto recipes! (I haven't done this in a while!)

Something I cooked recently:
Dorie Greenspan's Custardy Apple Squares
Aaaah, so good! It's very sliceable, and would probably freeze well. The custard isn't a runny kind of custard, it's more like a glue holding all the apple slices together.

I peeled and cored the apples then sliced them on the mandolin, and completely did not slice off a digit. (I am very frightened of the mandolin.) We cooked it in a glass dish rather than a cake tin, and it worked fine.

A+++ would bake again. (Have, in fact, baked again. A double recipe.)

Jaffa cakes ala Bake-off
For me, it was too many bits and pieces, and I'm not fussy enough a baker to bother. But I do know a British expat who suffers from a lack of Jaffa cakes in Australia and loved the recipe. They tasted okay? But not so great that I'm craving them again.

C+ Would not bother again - too fiddly for something I don't have a nostalgic connection to.


Something I have concrete plans to cook soon:
Jam and Coconut Slice
This is a lunch box classic for our house. It's basically coconut fluff over raspberry jam on a biscuit base, and it's tasty and reliable.


Something I'm idly planning to cook in the future:
Monkey Face Biscuits *content warning: creepy puppet*

I'm transcribing this because the recipe at the site is baked by a scary puppet and I can't look at it. I have made these biscuits and the recipe works really well but that puppet is a big nope.

Oh, and look: a love meme. I don't put my name in these things but I'm going to go love on you guys there.

One positive thing that has happened in the last twenty four hours is that people are posting here - it's really lovely to see our community come together when we're all unhappy and needing comfort. So I'm going to try to post more and comment more and generally keep things ticking along. I need youse guys.


Something that I've been thinking about for a while is how to revamp [livejournal.com profile] comicstore_news - fandom newsletters have been on wane since the AO3 came out. I love the AO3, don't get me wrong there, but since we've had one place to post fic, there's been less and less fic posted to comms. Again, that's not a bad thing, but it was the reason we had newsletters - to round up posts from disparate comms and make all that fic accessible. And now, I'm not sure what the position is for a fandom newsletter.

[livejournal.com profile] comicstore_news is getting pretty small - enough that we're running the thing with only four editors and maybe 2-3 editions per week. I'd like to see it feel more vibrant than it does now - I'd say there's maybe three or four comms that are really busy posting mixed bag fandom stuff, and then the bulk of what goes into the newsletter is challenges (so, like, fic exchanges, icon competitions, big bangs, prompt fests, that sort of thing.) So that's a thing we could focus on - there's lots of exchanges out there.

I know we're only seeing a tiny corner of fandom. We watch Livejournal and Dreamwidth only. When Tumblr was small, we tried linking posts from there (that's how small tumblr was back then, that such a thing was imaginable) but now the breadth of tumblr and the nature of posts there mean that it's not workable. I know there are tumblr-based challenges because I come across them randomly sometimes, but I know, like the deep blue sea, that there are hidden and unexplored depths that I am not crossing.

The way I envision a newsletter that handles fandom these days is one that picks ups things from the many platforms that we live on. I'd love to link rec posts and graphics posts and group reading challenges and re-watches, and somehow be able to unite the creativity of comics fandom into one easily accessible source. I just don't know how to make it happen.

I tried a multi-platform calendar comm on Imzy which I could then use to feed into the newsletter. It works to some extent, but I don't think Imzy has the numbers for it to be sustainable. Tumblr is the obvious place to start, but to me, tumblr is like holding a big tangled ball of yarn with many ends poking out, and I just don't know where to start. Would a comm like [community profile] fandomcalendar work on Tumblr? Are there tumblrs that lots of people can post to? How does it work?

Any ideas? Any suggestions? I'm honestly open to anything.
st_aurafina: (Heart and hands)
I know you guys fought hard. I know it's not your fault. I am sending you all my love and hope.

We'll all get through this.
st_aurafina: monarch butterfly wings (Butterfly wings)
State of the Writing:
I posted a bunch of fics, but have a few more that only need a little bit of work. (Sanctuary wing-fic, this one X-Men/Sanctuary fic I've had hanging around, that Warehouse 13 fic that I thought was finished but actually had [put kiss here] in the body of the text, ffs.)

I'm going to try for a finish-a-thon this Nano. I just totted up my works in progress:
- Post-Winter-Soldier Save Bucky fic now jossed by, I think, four MCU movies, 55K
- Person of Interest 5 Things, with 3/5 of the things done, 15K
- Person of Interest post S5 fixit, 36K
- Person of Interest Sentinel/Guide fic I should never have started but it's so addictive, 5K
- Dracula 2013 Lucy/Mina/Grayson fic 6K
- Original fic, Boarding House of Together They Solve Crime, 50K

That's 167K of unfinished business, holy shit. That's not right. Something has to change here. I think I'm staging an intervention on myself.

Yuletide assignments were super early this year, huh? Mine is great - I'm excited about getting started on that, plus the letter reads like I wrote it. We're obviously very in sync, my recipient and I. For myself, I got my letter in right on the buzzer - Dear Author.

And I have a pinch hit for [community profile] femslashex that I absolutely need to get cracking on. Now.

State of the Garden:
- celery going strong
- snow peas starting to take off
- weird crinkly spinach in that stage where the more you pick, the more grows
- broccolini is down to one plant, but it still has... brockles?
- bok choy gone (it was a really good winter crop though.)
- seeds for button squash, butternut pumpkin, green zebra tomato, apple cucumber and leek are tiny but strong
- 2 zucchini seedlings are in and planning their strategic advance on the house
- coriander is going
- we put in some beetroot seedlings, mostly because apparently the greens are nice in salad? IDK.

State of the Me:
- I hurt my shoulder and the physiotherapist uttered the dread incantation 'rotator cuff'. It's not too bad, just inflamed, definitely not torn, but I'm being extra careful. I feel like I'm in a bad Victorian novel, always checking that my shoulder blades are down and back.
- The plebiscite on same sex marriage went down in flames, thank goodness, but that and world events in general have left me feeling fairly hopeless about the future. I'm still trying to get over the discovery that I live in a world where #nottheonion is a thing we need when reading news.
- I'm feeling generally flat and uncommunicative but I am trying to push out of it. I have NaNo write-ins I want to attend in Geelong. I've scoped out the locale, it looks nice and fairly accessible. I'm still nervous about it. Socialising is nervewracking, even when I want to do it.
- Pokemon Go is giving me life. Even though fewer people are playing, it takes the edge of my anxiety when I go to a new place, because I can scope out the poke-landscape.

State of the Cats:
Spring is here and we opened a window )
st_aurafina: (Yuletide: panic!)
Yuletide! It seems like Yuletide comes around faster each year, which I don't mind at all because I FREAKING LOVE this exchange. This is my eleventh, and I've had a great time every year.

So, first up and foremost: I love Yuletide. I will love what you write. I've loved every Yuletide fic I've received. Please don't stress out! Please have fun writing.

Secondly, I write long letters with lots of suggestions, but they really are just suggestions. If you're one of those writers that does not enjoy being fenced in, then fly free, you beautiful wild thing. And if we don't gel on character choice, ODAO is a-okay with me. I like all the characters in these fandoms, I love all these fandoms for the stories and the worldbuilding. If you have to, ODAO like it's a rodeo.


Things that generally tickle my fancy:

People! Gen, slash, femslash, het. Friendship fic, relationship fic, frenemies, enemies, sexy enemies. People putting their differences aside to work with each other. Backstory, AUs (though not so much the mundane kind), crossovers (see [archiveofourown.org profile] st_aurafina for fandoms), teamwork.

Plot! Big sweeping plot, small canon-compliant plot, things for the characters to do while they're snarking at each other, things going on around them while they're getting it on. I like stuff to happen.

Competence! I have a huge competence kink. I love seeing people being really, really good at stuff. I love lateral thinkers and characters who follow their instincts and people putting their skills to use in unexpected ways.

Ladies! BAMF female characters who don't have to bring other female characters down to be BAMFs. Mothers and sisters and girlfriends and girlfriends and wives. Women with agency. Women treated with respect.

Representation! People of colour. People outside the gender binary. Queer identities and culture. Non-nuclear families, found families, poly families, family that is family because you get to define it.

Things that I don't like as much (but can handle if the story takes you there):
Sad endings, character death, angst, embarrassment.

Things I'd rather you didn't write:
Cross-gen relationships, incest, teacher/student, employee/employer, non-con.

Requests: The Black Tapes, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Inhuman Condition, Confident - Demi Lovato (Music Video), Wynonna Earp, Stranger Things )

Miscellanea

I do not have a preferred fandom. I haven't put them up in any order except how they came to me tonight as I write my letter. I might have written more about one than another, but that doesn't mean I'm fixated on that fandoms over others. I love them all, and I would be equally delighted with fic for any of them.

If we've matched on a large canon, and it's not going to work for you, I've got a few small or easily accessed canons here:

- Inhuman Condition is a short webseries about a psychologist who treats patients with paranormal characteristics. The main character is Michelle, who is played by Torri Higginson from SGA.
- Picnic at Hanging Rock is an Australian movie set in the Victorian era, about the disappearance of three schoolgirls. It's spooky and atmospheric. It's also as old as me, which means you'll probably find it in a bargain bin. (I guess that means I belong in a bargain bin, too. Oh, dear.)
- Confident by Demi Lovato is a music video. It also stars Michelle Rodriguez, there's a lot of fighting, and women having each other's back. It's great. With explosions.
- The Black Tapes is a podcast about a journalist following the career of a paranormal investigator and known sceptic. It's just finished its second season.


For stalking purposes, I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] st_aurafina and [tumblr.com profile] st-aurafina. All my previous Dear Author letters are here: Dear Author. If you have any questions, you're welcome to message my partner, [personal profile] lilacsigil. If you're writing Hanging Rock, and need an Australian beta, she'll do that. I totally volunteer her for it. (No, seriously, she will do that.)

Thank you so much! I hope you have a great Yuletide.
