What I’ve Just Finished Reading

The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu
It's available for free online here. A really affecting story. What made it for me where the small details, like the water buffalo wanting to wallow and jumping into the soy sauce.

What I’m Reading Now

The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
I really like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, so I picked this up at a book flea market. I'm not very far in yet. I'm currently at the point where professor Challenger invites the protagonist back into his house after having bodily thrown him out a moment before. He's certainly a memorable character. I loved the interaction with his wife.

What I Plan to Read Next

Probably This Census-Taker by China Mieville since it needs to go back to the library soon.

RIZ AHMED WON AN EMMY. AZIZ ANSARI AND LENA WAITHE WON EMMYS. STERLING K BROWN WON AN EMMY. ERIC NORTHMAN WON AN EMMY.

The real reason I'm posting today? I'M SEEING HAMILTON TONIGHT OMGGGGGGGGG! My time has finally come! Not looking forward to driving through Hollywood at rush hour (I used to sit in it everyday in late elementary and junior high because I lived in the Basin but went to school in the Valley), but I'll do it for the HamBurr! Joshua Henry, here I come!

I don't know where the year went, but suddenly we're here, gearing up for all the Christmas exchanges.

Yuletide just closed nominations over at [community profile] yuletide_admin. (I'll be requesting my perennials again - my once-a-year chance! There's nothing else I want as much, or at least not with as little a chance of getting written elsewhere.)

[community profile] holmestice - which this week announced dates for this year's winter round - is my chance for two other tiny fandoms, plus of course the ones that don't qualify for Yuletide. (I'm planning to add A Study in Emerald and Exit Sherlock Holmes to my ACD and Sherlock requests this time. Exit Sherlock Holmes is a new discovery for me; I stumbled across it earlier this year. Anyone else read it?)

And last but hopefully not least, [community profile] public_call just announced this year's schedule and rules. My nominations this year promise to be Missy-heavy, in addition to the usual things. :D

Oh, and even [community profile] holly_poly, which has a January deadline, has already posted a tentative schedule! And here, too, there will definitely be more Missy nominations for me in addition to my Twelve/Missy/Jack OT3.

(Btw, speaking of Missy, over at [community profile] missy_fest we've revealed the first of the Missy This Fic remixes, and the rest will be revealed every other day. It's a tiny fest with only four participants total! But it was totally worth it, and there's some amazing Missy fic to read. ♥)

Made my Yuletide noms:

Blade (Movie Series)

Abigail Whistler
Hannibal King
Zoe Sommerfield
Karen Jenson

(Hands up if you're at all surprised by that.)

Open Range (2003)

Boss Spearman
Charley Waite
Button (Open Range)
Sue Barlow

(I really want Boss and Button fic, with that whole found family, paternal relationship thing.)

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights (2004)

Javier Suarez
Katey Miller

(I had lots of fun when I wrote this pairing for Chocolate Box this year.)

Kind of hoping that someone nominates From Dusk Til Dawn: The Series, but since I suspect it will be more popular than the ones I did nominate, I figured I'd go rare :D
