The Slow Dance of the Infinite Stars

Today I was manhandled, mocked, ignored, called princess, and had a dudebro try to mansplain Professor Layton and Pacific Rim to me (‘do you actually like X’ ‘let me tell you about thing related to X I bet you’ve never heard of it’ oh my GOD) because of course the awesome badges I bought couldn’t possibly because I like something, oh no, all of which sucked. A lot.

I was also told by two comic professionals my shop is amazing ('I was blown away' Eeeee) and I helped several young women find their first comic, saying they'd definitely be back 'now that they know it's okay for girls to read them'. More than okay, ladies. I promise.

So yeah. I guess it was a pretty good day after all. ;-)


Hiiiiiiiiiii :D *waves shyly and blushes* :D
I don’t know what I said to make two of my favourite (and marvellously talented) writers follow me, but I’m so happy and grateful you did! *hugs* I just hope whatever it was I keep doing it, hee ;-) <3

"Don’t you think it would be cool if Falcon was also in Avengers 2?"

I would dance the dance of joy.  I would dance the goddamn Mamushka.  I would DO A JIG on top of Mount Coot-tha while wearing some kind of home-made Falcon t-shirt.

I’m just saying.

I want Steve to just show up at Avengers Tower like, “He comes with me.”

And Tony is just kind of like, “Okay, sure,” because he’s heard about Sam from Hill, and so Sam ends up on Steve’s floor in another apartment, and when Tony realizes that Sam’s wings came from Stark Industries he spends a few days mechanically Bedazzling the fuck out of them, while Sam and Tony debate the merits of classic rock versus R&B.

(And then there’s the time Cap shows up with Bucky and says, “He also comes with me,” and Tony just sort of sighs and hands him keys to that other apartment on Steve’s floor, because he’s quickly learned that some Avengers have a bad habit of bringing home other superpowered freaks like they’re lost puppies or something, like that time Clint showed up with a brunette and a dog and didn’t even bother to ask for keys to the other apartment on his floor, just picked the lock instead.)

sometimes someone mentions douglas adams and something deep within me rises, like an ancient computer stirring from millennia of silence.

dduane:

"It’s also very amusing to watch the contortions of literary critics faced with talented writers like the late lamented Iain Banks and Joanne Harris, who are equally adept in literary and speculative fiction and refuse to apologise for or justify what they write. And if the definitive characteristic of literary fiction is sublime prose, then at his peak Terry Pratchett is surely the finest prose stylist writing today. So this is where we get terms like counter-factual and magical realism, to save reviewers from sullying their copy with words like SF and fantasy."

I’m one of your favourite followers? Eeeee thank you <3

Ten facts about me:

  1. I’m in a book! (Yes, I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s pretty much my favourite fact, so I get to say it again ;-) I beta’d all three books in the Wolfsangel trilogy, and have a lovely mention in the acknowledgements at the back of the last one. Loki fans, if you want a book featuring epic battles, madness and magic in the closest thing to Beowulf you can experience in a modern novel - read Wolfsangel. You won’t regret it, I promise. :)
  2. John Cleese gave me my first (non-familial) kiss on my 17th birthday.
  3. I’ve met all of the remaining members of Monty Python multiple times.
  4. I can never decide if my favourite book everrrr is Good Omens or Last Chance to See. (Probably GO though, let’s be real. ;-)
  5. I’ve been singled out as an audience member on Graham Norton three times, and he once told me to shut up because I dared to correct a comment about my geekery. You can probably still see all the clips of me on his various shows on Youtube somewhere.
  6. I’ve shaken hands with President Clinton
  7. I still wish I had followed my dream of being a palaeontologist. Or at least not given up on my acting career. Sigh.
  8. When I was a teenager I interned at a small museum that housed the largest collection of the works of Jean Cocteau in the world, and had to give tours in French. I do not speak French.
  9. Once upon a time I was decently fluent (as much as one can be, anyway) in Elvish and Etruscan, and had an intermediate-level knowledge of Japanese. Not anymore, alas.
  10. I used to be pen pals with Neil Gaiman. I miss it. A lot.

in which Nevs doesnt cease to be the MOST INTERESTING PERSON ON THE PLANET OH MY GOD YOU MET THE MONTY PYTHONS?????????????????????? YOU KNEW ETRUSCAN????? I THINK NOT EVEN THE ETRUSCANS KNEW ETRUSCAN

AND PEN PALS WITH NEIL GAIMAN

Well, they are British.
