* [personal profile] glass_icarus is starting an ongoing food carnival! Potluck is intended to be a carnival for multicultural and intersectional discussions of food.

* Questioning Transphobia has an article on Raising (Potentially) Trans Children. It's good advice.

* Over at Native Appropriations - An Acceptable Ignorance: The comments were not rude, they were not even unexpected, but what struck me was how acceptable this level of ignorance was. No one was embarrassed or ashamed by their lack of knowledge, no one found it out of the ordinary. They shared without any hesitation, without apology.

* If you've missed it, the AO3 has implemented a 'kudos' button, similar to Facebook's 'like' thingit. Nifty! Also, Fanlore is out of beta.

* Universal Subtitles is a new tool that lets anyone add subtitles/captioning to any online video that has the code installed. The possibilities are amazing.

* Via BoingBoing: an infographic exploring the business of malware.

* Did any of you see the lunar eclipse Monday night/Tuesday morning? We got lucky - My roommates and I went up to the roof of our building around 2am (us central, about halfway through the eclipse) to see it and there wasn't any cloud cover blocking our view. It was a fantastic reddish color, so cool <3. Both Wired Science and Bad Astronomy have info and photos.

* I got my Yuletide story uploaded on time! And it turns out you can edit after the deadline! Which is good because there were a couple of things I needed to fix. I might do something for Yuletide Madness again this year, but first I want to trawl through [ profile] fandom_stocking for wishlists to fill (mine is here, in case you were wondering).

I wrote a drabble for [ profile] angelgazing's cuddle!meme a couple weeks ago (Well, I wrote several, but only one I liked enough to post):

Oh snap, almost forgot - I'm planning to start The Radical One Piece Read-a-thon* (volumes 1-3) next Wednesday at 3pm, same as the HikaGo reread. Because I am a creature of habit. A flexible creature of habit - let me know if that time slot doesn't work for you and we'll figure out a better one.


* I gotta amuse myself somehow.
