Ursula Vernon, who just won the Best Novelette Hugo, stopped in Iceland en route to WorldCon. She was with her husband Kevin, his cousin, Amy, & their friend Tina. They storified the trip, here:

Artist's notes: I wasn't supposed to sign up for anything for a while, but when I saw there's a Haikyuu!! story without art over here, I couldn't resist the temptation :) I had so much fun working with these images, I hope you enjoy them too ^_^

A huge thank you to RoryChaze for the inspiration, and for sharing my love of the series ^_^ And thank you to the people running the WIPBigBang, I'm really happy I got this chance to participate with my art!

The rest of the art can be found on AO3 | on DW | on LJ


(Mods: there wasn't any fandom tag for Haikyuu!!, can you add one, please? Thank you!)

Some days we can see Venus in mid-afternoon. Then at night, stars
separated by billions of miles, light travelling years

to die in the back of an eye.

Is there a vocabulary for this—one to make dailiness amplify
and not diminish wonder?

I have been so careless with the words I already have.

I don’t remember how to say home
in my first language, or lonely, or light.

I remember only
delam barat tang shodeh, I miss you,

and shab bekheir, goodnight.

How is school going, Kaveh-joon?
Delam barat tang shodeh.

Are you still drinking?
Shab bekheir.

For so long every step I’ve taken
has been from one tongue to another.

To order the world:
I need, you need, he/she/it needs.

The rest, left to a hungry jackal
in the back of my brain.

Right now our moon looks like a pale cabbage rose.
Delam barat tang shodeh.

We are forever folding into the night.
Shab bekheir.

It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Show: SG-1

Rec Category: Jack and Daniel friendship
Characters: Daniel Jackson, Jack O'Neill, General Hammond
Categories: gen, angst, character study, horror
Warnings: major character deaths
Author's Journal: [personal profile] agentotter
Author's Website: [archiveofourown.org profile] otter
Link: The Standard of Comparison

Why This Must Be Read: Oldskool classic fic! This is intense Jack and Daniel friendship, with a typically Otterish twist that you will not see coming... even if, upon rereading, you realize that all the clues were right there.

Show: SGA
Rec Category: 5 Things
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex, various characters from other fandoms
Categories: Gen
Warnings: Nil
Author on LJ: Rhymer23
Author's Website: AO3 or own site
Link: Five Authors Who Didn't Write Stargate Atlantis
Why This Must Be Read: these are very clever, and hilarious, like all of rhymer's humorous fic. The members of Team AR1 are placed in totally different literary canon settings, and proceed to trash them, in their own inimitable ways. The last one's a turnabout, where we can be glad Terry Pratchett didn't ever write SGA fanfic!
