And here's my bingo card! Posting it here so I can come back and reference it when I need to choose which one to work on next.

There we go, back on DW too

And now I've gotten my icons updated on DW and made sure entries will crosspost, I think I'm set. Though I probably should have done this months ago because now DW is missing a few entries but I can't remember how to fix that so I suppose it'll just stay that way.

I'm getting back in to looking up some writing comms - I've already signed up for [community profile] hc_bingo and I'm looking at a few others. I miss doing those and a lot of the ones I used to get involved with for weekly prompts don't seem to be active anymore, which is a shame since it looks like at least one of them was active up until just a few weeks ago. Those comms were always great for the muse!

Meh, I'll figure it out. Meanwhile, I'm slowly getting my VM fic posted at AO3 though I'm just posting them as is and including the original post date in a note. It's a bit fun to see how my writing has changed over the years, considering I wrote those back in 2005/2006!

Happy Friday, folks! I'm going to bed. I have to be up in like 5 hours but I got caught up in icons and writing a new Captain Canary (or rewriting the start - I can't find the notebook with the original start). Oops.

What with the news of there being a Tina Turner musical coming soon, I popped in one of her CDs in to listen (and sing along to) and have decided that I should put together a guess-list for the songs that I want to make it into the musical, arranged roughly from DEFINITELY MAKING IT IN to DEFINITELY NOT MAKING IT IN.

First of all, "What's Love Got to with It" and "Proud Mary" are definitely making it in, 100% guaranteed.



Cut for length, lots of embeds. )

So there's a direct-to-DVD movie called A Mermaid's Tale that came out a few months ago, about a girl who befriends a mermaid, and Jerry O'Connell plays the girl's dad. The film itself is kinda embarrassing in that basic, a-minimum-amount-of-effort-was-made kind of way, but the thing that offends me the most of the entire venture is the following:

This is what the mermaid looks like. (She's the one on the right, and in this scene she has legs.) She's pretty, and pretty typical for a teenager/young woman.

Jukebox musicals are a mixed bag, but when I saw that there's going to a jukebox musical based on Tina Turner's life premiering in London next year, my reaction was pretty much just YES THIS IS A THING I NEED GIVE IT TO ME NOW



My needs are easy sometimes.

scaramouche: Door knocker from Labyrinth (labyrinth knocker)
[personal profile] scaramouche
Julia Fox's Sister Queens: Katherine of Aragorn and Juana, Queen of Castile is a readable, straightforward biography of the sisters Juana and Katherine, daughters of the most Catholic monarchs Isabella of Castile and Ferdinand of Aragorn. As a combined biography it's fine, if a little one-sided since there's more known information about Katherine than Juana, but it did leave me wondering why it had to be a combined biography at all, and of these two specific ladies.

Like, in comparison, Nancy Goldstone's Four Queens talks about all four sisters as they were involved in marriages across Western Europe and caused intersecting points of interest, while her Catherine & Marguerite combined biography was done so to highlight the conflict between mother and daughter. Fox's book could very well have chosen to talk about all five of Isabella and Ferdinand's kids, giving a wider scope to the Spanish relationships, but she picked Juana and Katherine, who weren't that close and weren't even involved in direct conflict with each other because....?

Maybe it's to highlight their differing experiences as queens, which then turned to similarity as they suffered under the men who had power of them. There is something interesting in that -- I did like the portions pointing out that despite Juana being a queen regnant, she was treated very, absurdly differently from Katherine, who was "merely" a queen consort. But although I very much enjoyed reading about these women, I couldn't quite figure out what the book was trying to do by putting their stories side by side.

That said, the stuff I did like was the book's pushing into the forefront Juana and Katherine's upbringing under their passionate and driven parents, and how it would've influenced their choices as queen (seemingly Katherine more than Juana, which made for reading the later drama with Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn some freshness), plus its defense of Juana against her reputation as Juana the Mad. Good stuff, and only mildly perplexing.

I really need to get into better habit of archiving my tumblr fics, in case they get swallowed by the tumblr langoliers.

These are a bunch of timestamps of my Rogue One fic A Single Monk in Good Standing Must be in Want of Bro arranged in chronological order, instead of posting order.

Timestamp #1: Missing scene between atelier convo and Foss Day. )

Timestamp #2: Mystery of the starbird charm. )

Timestamp #3: At the open door gathering. )

Timestamp #4: Futurefic, a moment up on the wall. )
