The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck & Guidebook- Kim Krans

I’ve never had a tarot deck before, (unless I’m counting the 6-card fake sample deck from the Wizardology book I got as a kid- and I’m not) so after getting a random gift card from a relative I don’t particularly like, I decided to spend it on something expensive I wanted and needed an excuse to buy. It was either that or pronz-y graphic novels. So I settled for this, since I live at home atm, and also, it’d be a bit awk to pick something that raunchy. (Also also I bought more poetry books to read- I’m sure you might be seeing posts about those, too.)

So say hello to Ghost’s new and first tarot deck- The Wild Unknown by Kim Krans.

End Of Year Writing Blanket Box- 2018

End Of Year Writing Blanket Box by anxiousgeek on Pillowfort

This is going off of what was posted up on ao3 during the year of 2018.

Total number of completed stories: 10

Total word count: 16,100

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you’d predicted?: Less

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?: I don’t know about never, but I thought about a lot more Trips than I expected.

What’s your own favourite story of the year? Not necessarily the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?: I guess the dual tross pining basketball AU shorts, Running Lines and Set A Screen.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?: I hosted some drabbles-for-charity. I dont know that it really taught me anything that I didn’t know already.

My best story of this year: (going by kudos) the wild things we are

My most popular story of this year: (going by hits) Up To Something

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: From this year? I guess mine and Nate/CookiesAndKatanas’ Repo!Hats AU Chats

Most fun story to write: Uh…none of them :/. No one specific story was The Most Fun.

Most difficult story to write: All of them…it’s been a hard year.

Most Unintentionally Telling Story: the wild things we are, or Running Lines and Set A Screen. What can I say, I’m a pining bastard who loves sexy vampires. No one is surprised.

Do you have any writing goals for the new year?: Nope. Maybe post something. Maybe.

Still Haunting This House

Hi everyone. I just wanted to give you a tiny update on things, and regarding this blog.

Things are relatively good, personally. Mentally, I’m on a good two-combo of antidepressant meds, and things have been very positive. To be honest, I haven’t felt the way I do in years, so. It’s a big plus.
I also graduated college with my Bio degree this past July! And I now have an awesome science job working in a hospital lab! I’m still trying to figure out where I want to go from there, as usual, and aren’t we all.

I haven’t…written anything, in a long time.
In fact, that’s kinda why I’m putting this up. I know this may seem alarming- and that’s not my intent. I’m always here. I have been here. And…that’s kinda the other hand in this.
It’s quiet, this side of fandom. But also, I don’t feel the same about my part of it.

So. I’m locking most of this blog down. For me. For my eyes only. And I’m taking it back. For myself.

What does that mean?
It means any fandom content produced by me will be locked. Headcanon posts, mainly. Some fic rec links. Some art. Some personal post stuff. Most of the blog will stay up, but some will be locked down. Comments will be disabled in some places.
All of the Pages at the top will stay up. All the other links (should still) work.

It doesn’t mean you wont ever hear from me. My Pages are still going to be up, and this post will stay at the front page. I am still contact-able through this blog/my gmail/discord.
You might see something posted every once in a while, or writing put up on ao3. Nothing there is disappearing, or changing.

If you miss me, then. Well. *shrug* That’s on you, I’m afraid, friend. I’m not going anywhere…just changing things right now. My inbox is always open if you want to talk about things/have questions about “that one post about x thing/AU…”

You always know how to reach me, and if you dont…
Safe travels, and take care of yourselves.

ghostofgatsby’s beta-reading/editing

Hello, I’m ghostofgatsby, aka Ghost! For the past three years I’ve been writing a lot of fanfic, but I’ve read fanfic for ten years and been interested in writing since longer than that. Also in those past three years, I’ve been helpfully beta-reading for friends and peers in fandom. I always like helping, and watching people create stories ^^.

So! Do you have a thing (fanfic, original fic, or blog post) you would like to be beta-read?
