Two fannish things

1. Nirvana in Fire - I'm getting deeper in; the turnings of the plot are getting grimmer and more challenging -  not in terms of visible bloodshed, but more in terms of the damage wreaked by ruthless and amoral politicking.  That sounds so simple - like the Sheriff of Nottingham - but it isn't like that; nothing is simple and innocence is lost, and the consequences of actions keep rippling out forever. 
The damage, including spiritual damage, rebounds everywhere, including on those who commit to wrenching things and people back from their destructive trajectories, to restore right.  I'm reminded of Shakespeare: "the time is out of joint.  Oh cursed spite that ever I was born to set it right."

2. Halfamoon has finished, I suppose; at least, it was billed as running for the first fourteen days of February.  As the organisers half-anticipated, people's engagement was way down this year.  I myself couldn't seem to manage any fiction; I posted three short pieces about characters who met the prompt criteria - appreciations of bad, wonderful Senora Madeline Neroni, and of two of the women in Nirvana in Fire, and of Missee Lee, who is, IMO right now, the most stunningly impressive heroine in all of twentieth century children's fiction.


Two LJ things - one pleasant, one puzzling

1. The problem I mentioned a little while back, about difficulty updating an entry, is now solved - thank you, <user name=maraun.livejournal.com>!  (And the trouble there, in that last sentence, is all Dreamwidth's.  I've tried three separate ways to link to maraun, beginning and ending with the style set out in DW's FAQ.  None of them has worked.)

2. In my inbox is a message reading, in its entirety: "(You are not authorized to view this comment.)"  Then why send it to me?   (Is there any person who's sent me a message which I seem to be ignoring, perhaps?)
