I can't get to a march, but I've got my pussyhat made and ready to wear: Pussyhat Project.
( Okay, it looks a bit lavender, but it's pale pink on the top, I swear )
For More Joy Day, I have linkspam:
- 100words - a drabble com, yay!

James, aka zortified or gilafied, is a long-time fan who, in addition to writing fanfic, makes things with fabric! Tote bags, quilts, and more. The shop is Gilascave on Etsy, https://www.etsy.com/shop/GilasCave , and right now there is a 10% off coupon available through the end of January!
- Fandom Snowflake Challenge – Day 12
Day Twelve at snowflake_challenge was to nominate fannish communities:
In your own space, post a rec for fannish spaces and resources - comms, challenges, twitters, tumblrs, etc. Tell us about where you hang out. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.
I wasn't doing the challenge this year, but I thought I'd link to Day Twelve for others who weren't following it or who are new to Dreamwidth, because there are a lot of good comms linked there.
- [DW, LJ, Patreon] Welcome Back to Social Journaling
Another link about adjusting to Dreamwidth when you're more used to using apps like Facebook and so on, via umadoshi. I want you to feel at home here, all you new peeps! I like my flist being full and long.

- from spikedluv via snowflake_challenge: Fandom Snowflake Challenge: Day 11
A bunch of Captive Prince vids. I DID NOT REALISE THIS WAS A THING. I DID NOT. OMG. (Also vids for The Raven Boys, which I haven't read, but how much do I love that fandom just goes and makes vids for things with no visual canon? THIS MUCH.)
- Rogue swan’s reign of terror leaves lake’s model boaters in a fowl mood.
This motherfucking swan is smashing up motherfucking boats. I think we found Voltswan's nemesis! (Voltswan is the name we have given to a local GI-FUCKING-NORMOUS swan that may also be made up of five swans.)
- Early breaking meme for 2017: I LIK THE BREAD, from Health Inspectors of Reddit, what's the worst violation you've ever seen?:
My stepdad used to be a baker in an authentic recreation of an 18th century New French fortress. Because they sell bread to the public, the health inspector came by, and she was ripping into my stepdad for violations like the stonework walls, the doorless entranceways, or the lack of a mosquito zapper. He pointed out that they were following the highest standards except for things that would destroy the authenticity of this 18th-century bakery. The health inspector relented and agreed to give him a pass after verifying the food storage area was secure. They went to the shed, which was a doorless building attached to the bakery. As the health inspector went in, there happened to be an escaped cow licking all of the loaves. My stepdad could only say, "Honestly, this never happens." They passed the health inspection.
tl;dr: Health inspector witnesses escaped farm animal licking all the bread in a bakery, passes health inspection anyway
Which spawned this genius from Sam Garland:

fail_fandom had a good summary yesterday, including a spin-off into Imperial Radch fandom, and some excellently phrased wank.
My favourite, via Ann Leckie:
