Dog covers

katherine: You have been chosen to ride the Kingdom Chums' Love Light text against blurry rainbow colours (rainbowy)
There exists a whole series of Harlequins (Love Inspired Suspense, too bad for my reading preferences) with nothing but dogs on the covers: Rookie K-9 Unit.

My favourite is either Honor and Defend (there's puppies!) or Rookie K-9 Unit Christmas.
katherine: The Alot (a shaggy brown beast) wearing a santa hat. Words: I LIKE YULETIDE ALOT (yuletide)
I liked the commercial with sleep and wake animals that got nominated as a Yuletide fandom this year. (The internet supplies a video of a dog watching the commercial.)

My Yuletide assignment:
Just Can't Fall Asleep (1434 words)
Fandom: Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Josephine didn't really think the butter would do much to distract Sleep from exploring and hiding, but it was worth a try. And it felt, a little, like involving Sleep in the move.

I got to thinking about the sleep and wake animals in other settings, and thus:
Motives (932 words)
Fandom: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Belsomra "Cats and Dogs" Commercial
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Data & Ishara Yar
Characters: Data, Ishara Yar, Spot
Additional Tags: Wake and sleep animals, Set during "Legacy"
In a universe where the majority of humans have wake and sleep animals, Data meets Ishara Yar.
katherine: Girl with glasses: Fuzzy cat with a folded pair of glasses by her paw. (Default)
That is a thing I did not know existed: a cat flap that reads microchips.

Entirely irrelevant as we live in an apartment. But cool.

From an Atlantic article I read of babies in incubators at Coney Island and fairs.

There's Coney Island Sideshows at Neonatology on the Web (which has the pleasing spare look of the twenty-year old website it apparently is).

That has me imagining Steve and Bucky seeing tiny babies at the 1943 World Expo.

A future thing: sort through old and very old art.

A tonight thing: relaxing evening activity of CueCating (that's a verb now, I say) long-stored books into LibraryThing.

I mis-typed CueCat when searching for somewhere to link, and landed on CURCAT, "a unique psychometrically evaluated tool in VET for measuring practitioners' industry currency."
katherine: Spotted cat with tall tufted ears has her tongue sticking out as she stalks. (stalking)
With my Fic Corner and Jukebox Fest assignments safely submited, I felt I could polish up a teeny Twelfth Night piece.

These Two Creatures (90 words) by Katherine
Fandom: Twelfth Night - William Shakespeare
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Antonio/Sebastian
Characters: Antonio (Twelfth Night)
Where Viola had found her proper women's clothes Antonio knew not. It might have been moments or an hour that she was gone from the chattering crowd. Antonio had significant attentiveness only for Sebastian.

Inspired by the production I saw at Bard on the Beach, though that had Viola in a pink dress at the end.

Unrelated to the above, I landed on a romance author Tessa Dare's 2008 blog post "My FanFic Confessions - Yes, Tessa has yet another pen name!", linking to her Jane Austen fan fiction, so her name was fresh in my mind in a bookstore today. I picked up her Any Duchess Will Do as it looked fun.

Inspired by a Daily Bunny photo Lil' Bunny Butler.

Re-reading Bathtubs

I am re-reading Sharon Astyk's Bathtubs: A Theory of Community Relations.

Let us imagine that you are MacGyver, that 1980s tv guy who can build an atomic bomb out of gum and duct tape. You are facing a world-shattering crisis. You have a pile of scrap materials out of which you must build a high speed vehicle to effect your escape from this crisis, which will certainly involve you outracing a dramatic explosion. There are wheels, gears, sticks and the all-important duct tape. There’s also a big claw-footed bathtub. Now, when your need is for lightness and speed, do you attach the bathtub, just because you’ve got one lying around?
