sofiaviolet: a classic tale of love, part-time jobs and public transport (this is in fact my life)
[personal profile] sofiaviolet


Capture the flag didn't happen; no one from the Camberville side showed up, so the four JP residents (well, three plus Daly, who is probably on our side anyway, regardless of where he actually lives) got ice cream and hung out at Cid's house instead.

I got recruited into a BattleTech game. Daly taught me how to play on Saturday and my first session with the group was Monday. (Daly severely underestimated our ability to defend a base. And we discovered a loophole for artillery - if every spotter is -1 to hit a target and we have ten mechs peering over the wall... "hey Cid, the pilot's got brown eyes, are you aiming for the left one or the right one?") I fielded three mechs (all of mine, none from the communal pool) and actually managed to keep track of all of them! Although I think I'm going to have to get my own miniatures, because keeping track of which vaguely similar grey plastic mechs are mine (and which one goes with which sheet) is going to drive me nuts. And because I am me, they will be painted to suit my tastes and will therefore not look anything like they're supposed to.

Biggest news, though: I got into Simmons, after an eon of waiting for a decision. No info on financial aid yet, but I have wonderful parents who will put me through grad school regardless.

21 Days of Dreamwidth

7. What is your favorite community on Dreamwidth?

[community profile] beginningcocks. (So totally NSFW.)

8. What community do you wish was more active?

I'm not sure. Comms are a pretty peripheral part of my journaling experience. My biggest use for them has been orienting myself in a new fandom, and I haven't entered a new fandom since 2007. (I always lol when people complain about Dreamwidth being too fannish - I will never leave fandom, okay, but I have added tons of non-fannish people and I actually skip a lot of the fandom-related entries.)

9. Are there two people on your reading list that you think should meet?

Another one I can't really answer. But this is one of the reasons I post so many links - I figure other people can make their own introductions. Also a motivating factor in my reccing of personal journals for Follow Friday. Unfortunately, these methods exclude locked journals.


  • [personal profile] recessional: I prefer to think of it as "adorned".
    I mean, seriously: if shaving is mutilation, then what is what I've done to my skin, in the name of beauty (and as far as I'm concerned, my ink DOES make me more beautiful)? What's the metal I put through my ears?
  • Yes Means Yes: Domism: Role Essentialism and Sexism Intersectionality in the BDSM Scene
    All the things I want to talk about intersect — this post is about how they’re not entirely separable — so it’s easiest to start at the conclusion. In The Scene, it’s often the case that the social spaces — I’m not talking about the BDSM play itself, but the social interaction of the participants outside the bounds of play — privilege dominants and devalue submissives. As I’ll discuss below, part but only part of this is that more of the dominants are men and more of the submissives are women; the way men who bottom are treated sheds a lot of light but also adds a lot of complexity to how we should understand these dynamics.
