1) Happy belated birthday to David Bowie! Thanks for giving me so much, inspiring me so much, reminding me that I can live my dreams and letting me know that oh no, love, you're not alone.

This would be a very poor tribute but a tribute just the same... (Me doing a slight Bowie medley and playing with the distortion on my electric guitar.)

2) This is even more belated, but I really enjoyed the whole Yuletide process and the Yuletide reveals on New Year's Day. [personal profile] gonergone wrote me two wonderful and much appreciated stories:

The Dawn Before the Rest of the World. Oscar Wilde RPF, rated Teen.
Every Sinner Has a Future. Velvet Goldmine, Teen.

And I received a third story by someone I don't know but I so appreciate the thought from a stranger:

Like the Painting of a Sorrow. The Picture of Dorian Gray, Teen.

I don't know if this is bad form but I do want to link the pieces I wrote, most of which are quite short:

Morning. Velvet Goldmine. Teen; ~700 words.
Refraction. Velvet Goldmine. Teen; AU; ~850 words.
Growing Pains. Velvet Goldmine. Teen; ~1050 words.
The Shadow of a Rose. The Picture of Dorian Gray. Teen; ~2200 words. (This was my main assignment and it was a real challenge to write but I'm so glad I did...)
Schoolroom. The Picture of Dorian Gray. Teen; ~250 words. (When I first got my assignment I was like "No, I love Oscar Wilde too much to write for this novel!" By the end of the process I was like "Nope, apparently not - let's do another one!")
Once and Future. Arthurian mythology. Rated General.

So, yes, good times.

3) I have discovered Downton Abbey. How did I never discover this show before? It has almost everything I love in it and I can feel a huge phase coming on.... I may even start a study of the World War One poets again (am in the middle of season two now; please no spoilers...) and, yes, a huge obsession is probably in the wings.
