I went on a veritable archiving frenzy over the weekend.

Duty and Bloodshed (One Piece, CP9)
Collected stories of CP9, loosely interconnected.

Includes the 'Yalta-verse' stories.

So far there's Dedication, Belling the Cat (aka, Lucci gets p0wned), and Hot Seat. There will be Cordially Invited, Yalta and Homework up by the end of the week too.

Break in the Routine (Naruto, KakaGai)
Kakashi had heard people complain about 'routine', calling it humdrum and boring. For Kakashi, routine meant that nobody was actively trying to kill him and there were no missions that day. Routine was good.

An implausible green and orange streak vaulted over the iron fence and darted off a cherry tree, causing a dramatic shower of petals around him as he hit the ground. Gai, showing up for his regular challenge. Yup, still routine...Until Gai told him what he was challenging Kakashi at this time.


Beautiful Symmetries (Gundam Wing, 1x2x5)
Neither the war nor Treize had had the decency to finish me off. Adrift without a battle or an enemy to fight, I may have made some, shall we say, ill-considered decisions. Fortunately I survived the Peace in much the same way I had survived the War. As a Preventer, I could still be useful, I could still fight for a good cause and justify my survival. Best of all, I could do so as a solo operative, an independence that suited my solitary nature down to the ground.

And then those two showed up in my life again, needing a partner.

It'd been a few months since my life had last gone to hell in a hand-basket. I guess I was past due.

And of course The Arrangement and Source of All Things are also still getting updated on a daily or weekly basis, respectively.

She's been trying to get in the front door. Today she tried to slip in the back - at least until she was repelled by Callie!

Jenn referred to her being "home" the other day, meaning being on our porch.

We've got to get her moved, and fast. If we keep talking like that, she'll be our cat.

Now, last week she disappeared when it was time to grab her to go to the van. Next week, won't let her do that.

This prompt is from the pen-dips list for the 5th. "How does your character walk? What do their footsteps sound like?" My brain decided this meant what kind of shoes.

Kit - Barefoot is soft pat-pat-pat. She's digigrade so less foot hits than a standard human. She's got custom boots with arch and ankle support for shoe wearing occasions.

Morgan Pryce- Combat boots. Quick steps with a destination.
Leeloo - Wears sandals. Depending on which ankle brace those are sometimes more hardcore sandals.

Monoshi - 2 tooth geta outside. Stocking feet inside. Sometimes fox paws.

En Wendesday - cowboy boots
Skald - big stompy goth boots or pointy toed trad goth boots
Forgetful & Mumbles - converse. vans. surplus army boots.
Bridget - Expensive fashionable shoes. Often flats or kitten heels. Sometimes skyscraper heels.

Lis - Varies widely. Adventuring boots. Soft fashionable boots. Embroidered pointy toed slippers.
Arad - Sturdy boots. Plays at being the muscle so he doesn't have to wear stupid looking shoes.
Issa- Fashionable boots with soft soles the better for sneaking in.
Aravis - Doesn't play those games and gets to wear comfy ankle high boots in her nice infirmary and research library and no one ever tries to kill her. Does own 2 pairs embroidered pointy toed house slippers. One is lined in fur for winter.

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

1_Rhino Calf 2488 - Grahm S. Jones  Columbus Zoo and Aquarium

The Wilds welcomed a female Southern White Rhinoceros calf born in the pasture during the afternoon of October 5. The calf is the second fifth-generation White Rhino to be born outside of Africa (both fifth-generation calves were born at The Wilds).

The new calf was born to second-time mother, Anan, and first-time father, Roscoe. Anan’s first calf, a male named Letterman (born at The Wilds in 2014), was the first fifth-generation White Rhino to be born outside of Africa.

Anan had a notable birth herself, as she was the first fourth-generation Rhino to be born outside of Africa, and she, too, was born at The Wilds. Anan’s mother, Zen, was the very first Rhino born at The Wilds in 2004 and is still a part of the conservation center’s breeding herd.

The Wilds animal management team members have observed that the new calf is strong and is nursing in the pasture. This is the 17th White Rhino born at The Wilds; the conservation center has also produced seven Asian One-horned Rhinos.

The breeding recommendations are part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums’ (AZA) Species Survival Plan® (SSP) to enhance conservation of these species in their native range and to maintain a sustainable population of rhinos in human care.

“Every birth at The Wilds is significant, but this one is particularly special to us. With each new generation of Rhinos born, it is a testament to the success of the breeding program at The Wilds but more importantly a success for this species as a whole. The Wilds is proud to be a part of the conservation initiatives ensuring the survival of this species,” said Dr. Jan Ramer, vice president of The Wilds.

The White Rhino population had dwindled to perhaps only 50-200 at the beginning of the 20th century, but through conservation efforts, the population of White Rhinos in their native African range has rebounded to about 20,400 animals. However, even with the increase in numbers, the species remains classified as “Near Threatened” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). All five remaining Rhino species in Africa and Asia (White Rhinoceros, Black Rhinoceros, Greater One-horned Rhinoceros, Javan Rhinoceros, and Sumatran Rhinoceros) are persecuted by poachers who sell the horns for ornamental or traditional medicinal purposes, even though there are no scientifically proven health benefits for its use. The horns are made of keratin—the same substance that makes up fingernails and hair. The International Rhino Foundation, which receives support from The Wilds, estimates that one Rhino is killed every eight hours for its horn.

The Southern White Rhinoceros or Southern Square-lipped Rhinoceros (Ceratotherium simum simum) is one of the two subspecies of the White Rhinoceros (the other being the Northern White Rhinoceros). It is the most common and widespread subspecies of Rhino.

White Rhino calves are born after a gestation of 16 months and they can grow to be 4,000 pounds and six feet tall at their shoulder. Their natural habitats are plains or woodlands, interspersed with grassy openings. Through reintroduction efforts, their current range in the wild is in southern and eastern African countries.

Their physical characteristics are two pointed horns and a wide mouth suitable for grazing. The name White Rhinoceros originated from the Afrikaans word describing the animal’s mouth: wyd, meaning “wide.” Early English settlers in South Africa misinterpreted the word wyd for “white.”

To further protect the future of Rhinos, The Wilds and the Columbus Zoo has provided more than $196,000 in the last five years in support of conservation projects benefiting Rhinos in their native ranges, such as monitoring Black and White Rhinos in Zimbabwe’s Lowveld region through the International Rhino Foundation and protecting Black Rhinos in the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary in Kenya through the African Wildlife Foundation.

Black Panther trailer

There is SO MUCH to be excited about in the new Black Panther trailer, but I have to tell you, by the end of it all I could think about was this interview with Michael B. Jordan from back in 2011:
AVC: Vince and Wallace and Alex [are] at heart good guys who just happen to come from difficult backgrounds. You never really play the badass. Is that something you’d like to do?

MJ: Playing a bad guy? Playing a bad guy would be fun, I’m not going to lie. I’d definitely do that in a heartbeat, because it’s so out of my nature.

I am THRILLED that he finally gets to do this.

I am also thrilled about basically everything else in the trailer, which looks amazing.

This was my weekend (in no particular order):
  1. fed chickens in a hailstorm
  2. discovered my tv has died1
  3. failed to make the necessary decisions to buy a new tv
  4. saw ducklings, kaka, toutouwhai (native robin) and tuatara at the Karori Sanctuary
  5. started listening to the first Rivers of London audiobook
  6. started reading an excellent Les Mis fic
  7. had my first language exchange (in person, for 2hr20)
  8. only watched 1 hour of Kdrama
1 I have sound but no picture; it's only 4 yrs old; I am cranky about the mayfly lifespan of electronic goods these days.


ION, [profile] jamethiel_bane is doing a "post every day" meme, and I thought I'd do my own version, using her prompts, but maybe adapting some to suit me, and probably being far more erratic.

1. What do you prefer to be called by folks reading the entry? Who named you that and why? Where did it come from?

My fandom name is china shop, AKA china AKA Ms Shop. Even offline, in fannish circles I go by china.

It originates from an Ani DiFranco lyric (from the song "You Had Time"), via my pre-fandom blog, which was titled "you are a china shop, I am a bull". In 2007 I wrote on LJ:
Pre-fandom I was a different person online, and while I'm no less me now, well, livejournal is a slightly uncomfortable stage (in the performance sense) for me. The "push" of my entries appearing in your friends' list, as opposed to the "pull" of someone seeking them out. If I'm collected together, I'm more likely to cohere, but in general I suspect I'm a couple of tiles in a mosaic.

I first chose this name as a disclaimer -- you are a china shop, i am a bull -- and then accidentally claimed the fragile part as my identity. Possibly prescient.

The first paragraph of which seems adorably quaint now, in the face of tumblr and reblogging and posts running wild.

Anyway, yes, I am china. I named myself. I like it.

Today's been tough, social-media-wise, so I am closing all of the tabs containing non-dw (realname) social media, and cultivating some gratitudes.

1. Kitten falling asleep on my lap at lunchtime, warm and purring and paws splayed in complete relaxation.

2. Takeout Chinese for lunch with [personal profile] sanj on the spur of the moment. With bonus kitten sitting on the chair at the head of the table, and periodically sticking his head up over the edge of the table to see if we would let him eat our chicken. (Which we wouldn't.)

3. The new mini-season of Voltron went live this past weekend! Kiddo and [personal profile] sanj and I watched half of it last night, and it's delightful.

4. Yesterday I roasted some delicata squash (seasoned with salt and pepper and curry powder) and then roasted the seeds (boiled briefly, then seasoned the same way.) It pleases me to have turned something I would ordinarily have thrown away into tasty snack food.

5. Dinner for tonight is already made, so when I get home from work around 5:30 I can mostly relax. There's work I need to do, but if I don't do it tonight, nothing will catch on fire.

How are y'all holding up? Be gentle with yourselves.

How much of a fucking clueless asshole do you have to be to think, "You know who we should interview about this Harvey Weinstein thing? WOODY ALLEN. I bet he has something to say!"

I won't link to the article because I don't want to give it hits. It was on the BBC yesterday, and I hope they get an avalanche of complaints. Now it's making the rounds more widely.

As a friend said, "The only way that's a good idea is if the interviewer asked, 'So, as another predator,...'"

What the fuck. Seriously. He complains about "witch hunts." And of course, because he's famous, because he's objectionable, he's now going to be one of the loudest voices in the media discussion of Weinstein. Not other women who have something to say about sexual abuse, not someone with anything helpful or insightful or educational to say ... fucking. woody. allen.

2. We have got to learn the names of some of these people on the bridge, ffs.

3. Klingons torturing people are the worst Klingons, with or without implied rape.

Continuing my series of Stargate Atlantis characters and their daemons, illustrating Daemonology by [personal profile] trinityofone  - although only Marshall and his German shepherd dog were in the story. The rest of the daemons I'm inventing. My reason for choosing the various daemons is noted below each thumbnail, if you're interested. I'm trying to develop techniques to speed up the process, as I don't have things that pro artists have, like a lightbox. Still overdoing the cross-hatching - I haven't worked out yet how to convey dark colours without multiple layers of that. 

They're all on my AO3 in a single chapterized work, here.
