Just some thoughts I had now that there are actual subs to help me follow the storyline properly:Continue reading “Reminders ep. 1 liveblog”
Month: April 2019
A couple of weeks ago my employer announced our annual bonus – so to celebrate I decided to go on Etsy for some shopping! 🙂
I ended up ordering two customised pieces of jewelry in the aro-ace flag colours. (They were originally just ace colours – black/grey/white/purple – and I asked for aro colours to be added – green/light-green/white/grey/black.) Both arrived in the meantime, and I really like them a lot:
They’re so pretty, and I can easily wear them every day. (And the ring is slightly adjustable, which I prefer because my fingers seem to change in size depending on the weather. *g*)

Multifandom drabble exchange reveal
So I wrote three little drabbles for the Multifandom Drabble Exchange:
- Undercover (Guardian, Shen Wei/Zhao Yunlan): Zhao Yunlan only meant to tease Shen Wei. It… backfires.
- Sleeping Monkey Gif (Guardian RPF, Bai Yu/Zhu Yilong): Zhu Yilong works too hard.
- The Fine Art of River Diplomacy (Rivers of London): Peter has to take a business trip to mainland Europe.
I also received FIVE drabbles of my own, in four different fandoms, which just made my day – fandom is so great!!
