A Bright Moment from Seattle Pride

I went to Seattle Pride yesterday. It was a hell of a party, as always, but the shootings in Orlando and the brutal beating of a transgender activist in my neighborhood last week (on their way home from an event raising money for the survivors of Pulse) were clearly on everyone's minds.

There was a huge turn-out - half a million people, according to the Seattle Times.

And in the middle of this boisterous crowd, decked out in fabulous costumes and rainbows and leather and almost nothing, there is one man who stands out in my memory.

He was a slim black man wearing a long white robe, traditional Islamic dress. He had a sign that said, "I am a Muslim, but I am not a terrorist. There are no bad religions, only religions with bad people in them. I love you. If you trust me, give me a hug." He held the sign up high, at arms-reach above his head. He was blindfolded, a black-and white keffiyah scarf wrapped around his eyes.

Hundreds of people had lined up to give him a hug. They whispered to him as they embraced him. One large man picked him up in a bear hug and spun him around several times while the crowd laughed and cheered, before returning him to the ground and steadying him while he caught his balance, silent but smiling now, sign still held high.

It was a powerful symbol of love and faith, and one I will never forget.

2015 Yuletide Reveal Post

This year, despite not signing up for Yuletide, I picked up 2 pinch-hits, wrote a treat in the main collection, and wrote an additional 4 treats in the Madness collection.

I was gifted with an absolutely lovely gen Orange is the New Black story, Sweet and Sour (3258 words) by thelittlestbird. Do check it out!

The stories I wrote were in the fandoms of: Orange is the New Black, Ghosts music video - Hayley, Vorkosigan saga, Kushiels' Legacy verse, Vampire: the Masquerade, Baldur's Gate, and @TLFTravelAlerts.

I really enjoyed writing all of them! Details and links below the cutCollapse )

2015 Yuletide Recs Post #1

I'm still reading my way through both collections, but here are some initial love-at-first-sight fics, with 25 recs in 23 fandoms. I've recc'd everything from drabbles to novellas. Look below for all the porn, gender-fuck, poetry, threesomes, horror, laughs, and joy that you might desire.

First - my gift! I didn't sign-up for Yuletide this year, but picked up some pinch-hits. I wrote some prompts, hoping against hope, and got this INCREDIBLE Orange is a the New Black story on Christmas morning.

1) Sweet and Sour (3258 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Orange is the New Black

Bookmarker's Notes:

A lovely, bitter-sweet and perfectly in-character look at Black Cindy as she leaves behind the Christian traditions, and all of those childhood memories, and makes new traditions as part of her conversion to Judaism. Laugh out loud funny in parts, and unexpectedly moving in others. And, oh that prison recipe ....
