I am a male woman. Pronouns are they/them or she/her. Here’s why I chose these words:
The various non-binary/genderqueer titles are all palatable to a certain extent, but only “male woman” seems to truly fit what I want: an expression of womanhood that also includes my masculine self (and sounds good to me). It already feels so much more accurate than saying, “I am a woman.” Just a little caveat in there to state that, though I’m a woman, that doesn’t include everything I am as far as gender identity. Yay!
And though I don’t mind “she/her” at all, since I am a woman, I also like “they/them.” Not so much because it’s non-gendered (though that’s nice too), but because it’s plural. It acknowledges that, if I may put it this way, we are a pretty consistent feminine self and an occasional masculine self. Despite this pleasant plural (and the fact that I often use ‘we’ when talking to myself), I’ll stick with the singular they/them.
Now to go change my bio!
11/24 One by one, each of my lazy villagers has realized that they too need to contribute to the Turkey Day meal; it’s been amusing to watch the wave of knowledge sweep across the island.
11/18 It occurs to me that I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone that didn’t like The Devil Went Down to Georgia.
10/31 Happy Halloween!! For your treat this year, you get a site full of broken links!
10/15 Bear with me while I try to get the site running properly again at its new host!
9/2 Happy birthday to me!!!!
8/20 So you know how whenever a character wakes up under mysterious circumstances and there’s some question about who and where they are and how they got there, it’s usually either in the Cave Of The Ancients or on Homeless Trash Fire Lane? Why don’t people ever wake up in a mediocre place, like the bathroom at Fazoli’s and then when they emerge someone at the counter is holding a to-go bag and calling out a mysteriously familiar name?
8/7 Heretic’s Reward eats my brain every time it comes around on the working list.
7/24 Not having put down any quick thoughts for so long makes my site look dead. Everything else has been updated much more than the Quick Thoughts section, though! And I have been very lonely.
5/29 Check out my Patreon! See if any of the tiers interest you!
5/10 Ugh. I got a fun idea for a story in the shower last night, but it requires a sex scene. Anyone want to write it for me?
5/3 Success! And now! *sigh* And now back to work.
4/29 This TBoGaH chapter is kicking my ass.
4/24 It took that ankle over a week to get back down to a normal level of pain!!
4/14 My left ankle has been pretending to be sprained for a few days now, and it’s distractingly painful.
4/11 Sometimes I make the final keystrokes of a chapter or story with a great flourish, and throw my hands up in triumph with the rebounding movement.
4/5 You’d think this would be a perfect opportunity to get caught up on posts… but why would I do anything other than write in all this free time???
3/26 Ordered a box of sugar-free Red Vines and got SUGARFUL Red Vines. Can’t remember when I’ve been so disappointed and annoyed.
3/19 Except for careening toward financial ruin and worrying about catching the plague, isolation is actually pretty fun.
3/4 Various circumstances
including binge-watching a season and a half of Sofia the First have limited my art intake these past two weeks, so I’m putting off my AEL until next week. I kinda want it offset anyway.
2/25 Actual chapter posted!
2/23 Have some Heretic’s Reward interludes. Actual chapter pending.
2/19 Geez, this AEL keeps going and going. I guess I’ll finish it tomorrow?
2/4 I may have watched 12 hours of Sailor Moon last weekend instead of doing anything productive, but not this weekend! ASZz part at linear completion!
1/21 Working on some TWIP’s today in between stories.
1/11 I think tie prices are the clothing industry’s way of saying, “We don’t make enough money off men.”
1/6 Ruptured ovarian cyst(s) keeping me in bed for days on end is driving me toward financial disaster, but at least I have time for
Skyrim binging The Clone Wars writing!
1/2 So lots of random crap around this place suddenly isn’t working. Sorry about that!
1/1 Happy new year!
12/29 Faffing about with site stuff. Sorry if anything’s illegible.
12/25 Happy Christmas to anyone into that!
12/20 Should I be starting another long story? Absolutely not. Am I? I’ll let you guess.
12/19 Geez, how do you explain “I’m out of spoons” to 3- and 5-year-olds?
12/18 Editing a story in the morning instead of watching an episode is very effective! I’ll never catch up on the Arrowverse that way, though XD
12/16 After-Dinner Brandy is almost done! Get ready for Trowa’s long story in way more detail!
12/15 It’s just occurred to me that Cap’n Crunch’s hair is white and he’s never been promoted beyond cap’n. Incompetence? Prejudice? What’s been holding him back so long?
12/14 New writing is easy now; editing I still don’t have a lot of time for XD
12/11 I’ve reached linear completion on After-Dinner Brandy!
12/10 New method for consistently writing even while working a lot.
12/08 SoOoOo busy. Gotta figure something out.
12/07 NQF has gone very poorly on both ends this year. *sigh*
29 days 'til I turn 39! 07/22: I'm sure many people have seen this, but I felt it needed to be documented: When those folks came up with those names for Gundam Wing, did they know what lasting entertainment they would provide the fans? Two cats in harmony on the bed:...
39 days 'til I turn 39!! I promise I really am working on stuff. Two big projects (exchange fic and helping get this first TLY audiobook finished), which both more or less have deadlines, have been siphoning all my time lately... but I have gotten bits and pieces of...
07/07: I was sitting in bed with some cuddlebugs, and Hiko was doing this: https://kuroiyousei.net/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/20190707-Hiko-sneepin-next-to-Piper-and-twitching.mp4 What do you suppose he was dreaming about? Eventually I rose and wore my new plaid dress....
PL: Nine Decades, site/AO3 stuff (including HCBT and weeping), Castlevania fic at last!, exchange fic
Nine Decades -- I finally got back around to this! The plan was to have the final story to linear completion before moving on in my schedule, but, having recently posted Aku Soku Zan(za) on AO3, I wanted to move on to that in order to post something and prove...
AEL: The Valley of the Moon, Castlevania fanfiction, Animal Farm, Udolpho v.3, The Ambassador’s Mission, and, um, yes, Castlevania again
The Valley of the Moon by Jack London -- You may or may not be able to tell I'm working my way through a Jack London collection. Obviously it started with White Fang and The Call of the Wild, and here's the third novel. And it's been... kinda weird to go from...
05/28: Here's another work selfie, I guess? Not sure why I took this one: 05/29: My co-worker (whose name is also Robin) has been fostering some kittins, and they are the cutest things. Here are some pictures of thems: OK, so, after 9 months or so of bringing a salad...
DC Animated Universe: Clark can’t figure out why Lois, not usually given to writing gossip articles, has just come up with this fluff piece about a couple of villains at a nightclub.
Harry Potter: An acquaintance from school, who happens to be a Death Eater now, highlights everything wrong with all of Peter Pettigrew’s relationships.

AEL: The Dragon Quartet, 9 From the Nine Worlds, Mansfield Park, The Hundred Days, The Riddle-Master Trilogy
The Dragon Quartet by Marjorie B. Kellogg -- Once upon a time I found the first book of these four at a used bookstore. I believe I was in my mid-to-late teens at the time, and I will frankly admit that it was the beautiful cover that caused me to buy the thing for,...
State of the union -- My joint pain has still been very bad, especially in the hands and wrists. I tested negative for Rheumatoid Arthritis and a variety of autoimmune disorders, so fibromyalgia is the next possibility we're looking at. Taking a new drug that I...
AEL: The Collegia Magica, King Solomon’s Mines, Oz briefly, The Haunting of Hill House, Sofia the First, two O’Brians, The Outlaws of Sherwood, The Wind in the Willows, Misery, two Austens, To Kill A Mockingbird
The Collegia Magica by Carol Berg -- This was my second time through these books, and I find them a very interesting experience. The world the author has created is solidly conceived, makes sense, and fascinates. The characters she populates it with are excellent,...
02/18: You may protest that I have taken and posted this precise photo multiple times in the past. The only thing I would have to say in response to that is that my dog is incredibly cute, and it's fun to see my character wall progressing. Then look at these two...
Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir: On seeing a new set of Nathaniel’s drawings with a new subject, Chloé’s at it again.
Well, it's been, like, six months since my last Productivity Log, so I hardly know what to say XD There's no way I'll remember everything I've wanted to mention about everything I've worked on, so this is likely to be a little random and scattered. To start with, the...
01/20: I try not to take pictures of every single cute outfit I wear; I really do. But this scarf matched my springy green dress soOoOo well, I just had to document it. OK, we went to Disneyland, the way we do. This time Mostle and Jakebii came with us, but brother...
Art Experience Log: The Chestnut Soldier, The Lord of the Rings Book 1
02/04: Look, Suki went to sneep in the little house on the cat tree. Most of the time the cats don't care about that lower-down house. 02/06: I often make a big pile of bedding while I'm changing the sheets. This day, Suki sat first on the stack of stuff and then in...

Two Weeks In Photos: Little Animals, stuff I saw while working, and a couple other things (new phone!)
My mom's dad died this morning. I don't need sympathy; I'm just documenting the event. He was an abusive husband and father and one of the most annoying people I've ever met. He was never worse than incredibly obnoxious to me, but I didn't like him. I often have to...
