Dear chocolatier,

Thank you so much for writing or drawing for me!

I requested a wide variety of pairings. I'm offering a handful of prompts for each of them, but feel free to mix and match (or to ignore). They're meant to inspire, not to limit. Feel free to visit #dear author: i am delightfully bizarre for past letters.

A list of things I like: AUs (mundane, canon divergence, or otherwise), bdsm, crossovers, darkness, existential angst, fluff, glitter, hair, intertextuality, joy, kidfic, lemon (take it in what sense thou wilt), master/slave, noncon, open relationships, petplay, queerness, roadtrips, sonnets, trivia, underage, Valentines Day, winter, x-rated fic, yesterday, zoos.

Do not want: Scat, sounding.

Original fic prompts

No promises at all, but I'd like to try writing things, maybe? As usual wanting to try to ring in new year doing what I love/want to spend rest of year doing.

Please prompt [pairing,(optionally) setting/genre, kink or trope, (optionally) brief prompt].

E.g., Evil Witch/Princess, fairy tale, non-con

Sister/Brother, steampunk, bondage with unusual materials

Spaceship captain father/daughter, pretending to be married

Theoretically will try to write any gender combo, almost any kinks (anything except sounding and scat), any genre. In actuality who even knows.

culture created Tuesday

Finished making the caramel apple blondie cheesecake I was working on last week. It was delicious; I ate the last slice for breakfast today (like a grownup.)

Made peach pie, currently cooling.

Regular Thursday worship reminder email.

Conducted straw poll and counted votes at congregational meeting Sunday.

Had lots of ideas for writing and vidding, none of which I implemented.

Culture created and consumed Wednesday

Food!

PUMPKIN SPICE EVERYTHING season continues.

My roommate Kimmy discovered awhile ago recipes for no-churn ice cream, using whipping cream & sweetened condensed milk, and I had leftover pumpkin from last week's cookies, so I made pumpkin ice cream.

I had bananas that were just at the falling-out-of-skin stage, so I made two loaves of banana bread. There's still a tiny bit left.

I made not-Key lime pie. There is not even a little bit of that left. Housemate suggested I use pâte sucrée instead of regular pie crust next time. (I'm not a fan of any kind of cookie crumb crust, so I just made a standard crust for the lime pie.) Filling was A++ though.

In the middle of making caramel apple Blondie cheesecake. Blondie smells awesome; it and caramel are cooling. I also made fake Cool Whip, since I totally failed to notice at the store that recipe called for it, and definitely not something I normally have in the house. So that's in the fridge.


Worship: regular weekly email, and was lay reader on Sunday.

+

I am watching Glee, even though I 100% for sure know it starts sucking and *will* break my heart. But meanwhile I'm having feelings.


Also I have a new car. (Old one was totaled in an accident a couple months ago.) She is a white 2012 Nissan Versa, and her name is Vivien.

culture consumed Wednesday: middle grade

Finished the Ramona books.

Read the following Ann M. Martin books from the library:
+The Runaway Dolls (with Laura Godwin) -- made me want to reread the Borrowers.
+Coming Apart, Main Street #9. I am enjoying the end of this series less than the beginning. :/
+Everything for a Dog, which I actually liked better than A Dog's Life, although it didn't make me cry.
+Ten Rules for Living with My Sister - so much fun.
+Better to Wish and The Long Way Home, the first two books in the Family Tree series -- I loved these immensely.

Until I can acquire more Ann from the library, rereading Harriet the Spy.

(While reading these books, btw, I am skipping over the animal deaths. Human deaths are fine, but animal deaths I can't.)

And various perfumes, and at work have been listening to music on my mp3 player, a randomish collection of upbeat stuff, to keep me awake.

Puzzle Pirates: overcame my fear of interacting with other humans, even in highly virtual context, and discovered that pillaging with a crew is vastly more lucrative than the Navy puzzles etc.

Main Street: On the third book. So very soothing. The contents of Ann M. Martin's id are so nice.

Perfumes: various BPAL yules.

"Gossips in Ghost Land" = "black cedar, patchouli, tea leaves, spiked with pink peppercorn, mate, and lime rind." This is potent and not ~pretty and I considered washing it off rather than wearing it to work yesterday evening, but it mellowed a little as the evening progressed.

Wore "Spirit Board" tonight. "Redwood and bois de rose with white lilac, dried pink roses, and black tea." Wet on skin I could just smell the lilac, and then it became all rose, all the time, as pretty much all rose does. I like smelling of rose, so it's fine, but perhaps I can concede that I now own enough rose perfumes for the time being.

Games: Puzzle Pirates. Lots. Have been working the daily free crafting puzzles for the past several days.

Books: Finally finished Wintergirls. Tempted to turn around and reread it, but instead decided to try to read Ann M. Martin's Main Street series. (I have never read all the way through, nor even all the way through the first seven books, which is all I own. But they are very soothing.)
