Sunday! Who's got cleaning plans for the day? Anyone need cheering (or congratulating on yesterday's success)? Let us know how it's going for you.

Apologies that we seem to have both managed to miss posting this week for an anti-procrastination day. I've been running around in circles and not getting home until late and never thinking at a good point to actually achieve the objective that I needed to post! Let's be revolutionary and have an antiprocrastination task added into today's mix. What one small thing will you do today that you've been putting off?

For those in need of suggestions, can you tackle a single pile of papers or set a timer and deal with the pile for 5/10 minutes to try and reduce it if it's too big or complicated to tackle in one go?

Scrupulosity + Distance

Two weeks ago, a spirit came to me and said she wanted my attention. She’s poked here and there at recognizable names, but for the moment the best is Redbird, a spirit from the Empty Sky side whom I haven’t had much experience with before. Redbird is one of the four “children” of the Dragon and the Firebird.

In the oracle deck, Redbird is associated with knowledge and with small beginnings that turn out to be big outcomes. She’s a raw enough power that she doesn’t have a simple element or portfolio – there’s fire, there’s magic, there’s sex and death and creation. She’s the most like her mother out of the four children, but she has her differences. She and her siblings don’t ride often or for very long.

So far she’s largely instructing me in how to do certain kinds of magic more efficiently. In exchange, she gets to direct the magical effects of my practice work, so it’s basically been split 50/50 between work for me and work for her.

One of the things I’m stressed about is how many obligations I have going on at the moment, though. When she came in and asked for my time, I told her that I could give her a few weeks but I need to focus on finding a job before I can give much attention to anything else. The job hunt is playing havoc with my anxiety, enough that I’m thinking about asking my doctor for medication or a referral.

Adding another long-term esoteric practice sounds exhausting, but I also need to accept the help I’m offered.

“I’ll give you a month,” I told her. “Help me find a job by the end of it and we can talk.” This is a lot like what I said to Juno, several months ago, and that resulted in me getting very close to a job but losing out at the last moment. I’m hoping she comes though; I’ll be happy to give her more time if she can.

Things are going reasonably well with the Dark Lady, as far as I can tell.

But Mara… Mara feels different. I continue to offer to Mara but I’m feeling at a loss. It’s hard to know what’s going on there, and divination has largely turned up ‘it’ll work out’ messages from her, but I’m literally incapable of not worrying. Part of me is worried she’s unhappy about something – that maybe she didn’t like Merciful Earth, or she didn’t like how long it took to produce. That I made some mistake when I got her her own altar, or when I expanded her space, or when I konmari-ed the space. That I’m not making enough room in my budget for charity. That I’m not spending enough focus on her in her season.

It’s almost certainly religious scrupulosity talking, I know that, but knowing it has no effect. Summer is her season. If I’d gotten my shit together last fall and done my six months with the Dark Lady starting with Samhain, I’d be on the correct schedule… but I didn’t, and it’s not like I can go back in time and feel bad when I could have done something about it.

I can try and make enough time for Mara too, and I do, but I just end up worrying whether it’s enough, which is not a problem I’ve had before. Usually my religiously scrupulous tendencies manifest differently. But I know distance is sometimes normal in relationships with powers, and I’m trying not to read more into it than is justified.

It’s a struggle with myself, and ultimately I’m answerable to myself as well as the spirits. I keep going as best I can. I do what I can, I offer what I can, and then I move on.

I can only hppe it’s enough.

I have this annoying thing going on where I will be tired during the day, and looking forward to going to bed, and as we're doing the going-to-bed thing I'm generally sleepy and having trouble remembering words and --

-- and I get in bed and a few minutes later, BAM, wide awake with my brain going "let's do stuff let's watch Netflix or play games or something whee".

For hours.

I know I "should" just try to sleep anyway, but the compulsion to do things is like an unignorable itch that just ... I can't fight it. And I don't know how much is psychological and how much is physical, how much is "ooh I'm actually comfortable let's stretch this out as long as we can" and how much is an aversion to sleep and how much is aversion to the period where you're not asleep yet but nrainwasps keep buzzing around and I have to distract myself.

It's fucking frustrating, and makes me feel like I'm failing at adulting.

Tonight's especially bad because earlier today I didn't just have the usual fatigue, I was actually sleepy, with the gritty feeling to my eyes that comes with way too little sleep, and I went to bed four hours ago and I'm not asleep. because that's how much I suck

In 'Online Fiction Becomes Chinese Cultural Force' for The Wall Street Journal, Li Yuan wrote User-generated fiction is gaining traction in the West, too. Toronto-based story-telling site Wattpad claims 45 million active users and some two million stories uploaded per month. Fan fiction, romance and mysteries are among the most popular categories.

The Jakarta Post’s Adil Akbar wrote Star Trek fans, or “Trekkies” as they are known, are believed to be the first fans to devote themselves to their beloved series — producing fanzines, fan-fiction, holding conventions and much more — breaking ground for other fandoms to follow suit.

In a review of Ghostbusters for The Clarion-Ledger, Dustin Barnes wrote It's like going to see "Harry Potter" with someone who read all the books and writes Potter fan fiction on the side — you can't enjoy the movie because all you hear is "that's not how it was here..."

From Cristina Arreola on Bustle: ClintonKaine.com Is All Harry Potter Fanfiction, And This Is Why You Should Always Buy Domain Names. And, for Above the Law, Joe Patrice wrote ClintonKaine.com: Your One-Stop Shop For Election-Themed Harry Potter Fan Fiction.

The Dark Tower, Borderlands, Jennifer Aniston, Jane Austen, The Neon Demon, Lights Out, Sachin Dev )

The Bakersfield Californian’s Stefani Dias wrote that Those inspired by [Vanta M. Black’s] tale can enter an “Oubliette” fan fiction contest in which first prize is a trip to France.

In ‘A paranormal LGBTQ werewolf romance: How some Canadian fan authors find success’ for Toronto Metro, Genna Buck wrote Annie Harper co-created Interlude Press, which has its roots in fanfiction culture but has become a bricks-and-mortar publisher that specializes in LGBTQ fiction..

Finally, in ‘The political erotica of 2016’ for The New Yorker, Talia Lavin, noted Melania does not feature prominently in the less elevated works that dominate political fan fiction on the Internet. Online, you are much more likely to read about a romantic connection between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz—a pairing popular enough in political-erotica circles to have a Kimye-style nickname: Crubio.

Remembering that you have an ice lolly (a.k.a. popsicle, I believe) mould at the back of a cupboard.

Also, it turns out that an unsweetened jasmine tea ice lolly is an unusual and refreshing thing (yes, it's just frozen tea-on-a-stick; given the basic goal of reducing body temperature as much as possible, this totally works for me).

Btw, I reiterate the lido offer for DW peeps in London (for upcoming weekdays, anyway -- getting too crowded at weekends).

This is part of a series, but this simplifies some later things. This
removes "reproxying" from the codebase. Since we're recommending people
use Varnish, Cloudflare, or some other caching system, there's not a lot
of performance gain by reproxying. Particularly with how fast computers
are these days.

Correctly render special characters in PM subjects (#1813)

"We sold our souls to The Powers That Be to get the book written, and only found our way back to telling the real story when they balked at just what that real story was. We were kicked off filming locations long before we were invited back for set visits and chats with Jensen and Jared in their trailers. There’s a lot in Fangasm that’s so personal that it’s hard to read even now"

July's guest post is with Fangasm's Lynn Zubernis & Katherine Larsen. They discuss the surprises & difficulties of their academic projects, what they learned about fandom through Supernatural, and what's next on their agendas: http://goo.gl/aV95mm

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for August with these fandoms:

* Harry Potter ([personal profile] thady)
* Undertale ([profile] jogn_egbert)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in August, it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for September, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for August, September or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of July. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "space exploration", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Why this piece is awesome: This one's from the SGA Big Bang 2009, and it illustrates [personal profile] general_jinjur's great post-Tabula Rasa story "The Magical Number Seven (Plus or Minus Two)". I love the clever combination of silhouettes with the swirling patterns and the way sal used very fitting song lyrics curling across the image. Really excellent design overall. You need to click through twice to see the detail properly.
