Friends MOSTLY


Picture of a little girl swinging on a swingset

Friends mostly! I still do a lot of public posts, but non-friends are screened by default.

Make sure to read this first: http://fayanora.livejournal.com/838343.html

Buy my book! (science fiction)

Buy my dad's book! (nonfiction)

for existing friendsCollapse )

(Click the picture to get at least an idea of the meanings. Only "ingenuus memes" are defined there yet. That and the opposites of the others.)

Friends mostly. Mainly means there's a bunch of content friends-locked. Also, non-friends and anonymous posters are screened by default. If you are an ass in your comments, your comments will be deleted.

Comment to be added. And if you're an old friend getting a new LJ, let me know that information.

Friending must-knows:

1. I do not tolerate myself or my friends being made fun of for any reason. If I find you have done this, you will be unfriended and banned.

2. I NEVER do friend-culls. If you find you've been banned, it's either a mistake or for the above reason. If you believe it to be a mistake, let me know.

Also, there are three stages here:

1. There's an "Acquaintances" filter, for people I don't know very well. Not much more they get to see than public does, but some things. If you never see any friends-locked entries here, let me know. It seems I have to add people to the Acquaintances filter.

2. Friends - They see the most.

3. Multiplicity - Ask me about this one. It's got the most personal stuff of mine.

One last thing: Unless you're a friend, your comments to all posts will be screened.

Fun stuff and more information.Collapse )

Proper review this time

Now that I have finished reading "Every Heart a Doorway," a proper review is called for:

This is an amazing book, about a boarding school for people who - like Alice from Alice in Wonderland or Dorothy from the Oz books - slipped into another world, found they fit in, then got ripped out of that world back to this one, and now must adapt to their original world again, and cope with the strong need to return to the one they fell into. But of course, as with most of Seanan's writing, there is a horror twist: students are being murdered, their bodies mutilated.

As someone who coped with a troubled childhood by retreating into fantasy and then later got pulled kicking and screaming back to reality and has been trying to readjust ever since, I strongly resonate with these characters. Their characterization is unique, varied, realistic, and beautiful.

I was also pleased at the inclusion of a transgender character who is neither joke nor tragedy, and at the main character being asexual yet not aromantic. Further, one of the other girls is a scientist and genius. These characters, whose struggles to cope with being on earth again are so well written, added to a beautiful, rich, and believable fantasy multiverse, makes it a jewel to read, and I really hope Ms. McGuire will be taking us back through this door in the future.

Every Heart a Doorway

I'm reading "Every Heart a Doorway" by Seanan McGuire. It reminds me of what I've heard of the Mrs. Peregrine's Home series, but with a horror twist. A school for children who fell through doors into other worlds and then got shoved back here, trying to cope with this world again. It reminds me of my own childhood, because I was off in my own world during my childhood and have been trying to cope with being forced back to reality ever since.

Edit: Forgot to mention that there's a trans boy character, and the main character is asexual.
