Seasoned Fan Woman

I am "old" but not dead. Writing, archaeology, and (clearly) "The Hobbit," Doctor Who (back from the days of Tom Baker), Dungeons and Dragons (the pen and paper version), Children in the Archaeological Record (toy marbles), Star Wars, all sorts of things are part of the mishmash that makes up my interests - you HAVE been warned. (Fandom - Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Star Wars, Loki/Tom Hiddleston, and a lot others)

It’s probably harmless.

Writer’s Block


In one sentence is the spark of a story. Ignite.

Mission: Write a story, a description, a poem, a metaphor, a commentary, or a memory about this sentence. Write something about this sentence.

Be sure to tag writeworld in your block!

This would apply well to a person, too. :-)

I’m an orphan raised by carnies fighting with a stick and a string from the Paleolithic era. So when I say this looks “bad”? I promise you it feels worse.

I love the use of ASL (American Sign Language)!

*shakes head*. I wish to heaven and hell the wasn’t the truth in a fair amount of minds, but it is. I count myself exceedingly fortunate to work in a university that is diverse and has no tolerance for this kind off shit, and I am thankful. I work in the kind of place where, if a woman chooses to wear a veil, we respect that, and honor her privacy - and when it comes to making her university ID card, we volunteer to clear the office of men, and have only a woman take her photo, if it is her wish.

This commercial is amazing.

I work at an Under Armour store and we got to see this commercial way before they showed it on TV and everyone was speechless except one dude. He was all like “What the hell? Why the fuck would they make a ballet commercial? It’s not a sport.” My boss was quick to jump down his throat and said “Alright then get your ass on the floor and work on you tippy toes for the rest of your shift. If I fucking see you off them you will be the first of the temps to get cut!” He was on his tippy toes for the last hour and a half of his shift lol 

Ballet is one of the most merciless sports, in my opinion. I tried it for a year when I was very, very young, and quickly got tired of the egos, and backbiting among the students (we were 6!), and the cold meanness that was our strict and aged teacher - and by aged, the woman looked to be in her 60’s.

This is Chester. When I was in Afghanistan I got a care package from one of those “Adopt a Soldier” programs that lets families send care packages to service men and women who are deployed overseas. Anyway, I got this care package, and it came with the usual stuff: Baby wipes, crackers, peanut butter, the Dad threw in a pack of cigarettes, and there was some jerky. But there was also a little beanie baby gold fish and a hand written note from a 7 year old girl that said  “Dear Soldier, (I wasn’t even mad) I hope you are doing well. I’m sorry you have to miss thanksgiving with your family. This is my friend Chester. He keeps me safe from monsters, but I think you need him more than I do. I hope he keeps you safe from the monsters you’re fighting. Take good care of him for me”.
You bet your ass that little fish was in my pocket every time I went on patrol.

This is what I love about Winter. You wake up in the middle of the night, maybe just to pee or get water or something, look out the window and see this. It’s so beautiful. And it’s silent; you have no idea that it’s happening until you just look. It almost seems fake. And it makes your bed seem way more comfortable, for whatever reason.
