About

Ask me things!

Kyra. Twenty-something Alaskan (ask me about it! I've lived here most of my life, including five years in Barrow, the northernmost community in the US) with two English degrees who seems to be in a holding pattern waiting for life to start. Still thinking about going back to school...some more. The academic nerdery is strong with this one. (Undergrad thesis: werewolves. Grad thesis: vampires. Specifically, Dracula, Twilight, and rape culture.) Writer, reader, wannabe novelist, hopeful cynic, traveler (up to 15 countries! *fist pump*), Ravenclaw, Browncoat, Whovian (Ten will always be my Doctor), member of way too many other fandoms, Tom Hiddleston fan, proud geek and gamer girl, etc. (favorites include the Mass Effect, Portal, and Fallout series, and Red Dead Redemption). Politically conservative-to-moderate feminist (yes, it's possible). Living with clinical depression since at least 2004. Somewhere around the demisexual end of the asexual spectrum. Possibly a vampire.

Also, I'm kind of writing a novel because Tom Hiddleston has a stupid face.

You can find me in multiple elsewheres, in varying degrees of regularity: in my writing journal, mostly for fanfic and fanmixes; last.fm; Twitter; AO3; and Fallen London, where I misunderstood the character creation for some reason and picked the wrong gender, among others. I'm thestarvelingcat on PSN, which is mostly only relevant if you want to find me in Red Dead Redemption multiplayer, and 100indecisions on Steam, as well as at Playfire. I'm still in love with Star Wars: The Old Republic, and I play semi-regularly on the Harbinger server under several different characters.

I also run F Yeah Fireflies and F yeah Raspberries, which are...pretty much what they say on the tin, as well as another one for one of my novels-in-progress. Calli and I co-run Strangeness in the Proportion for a horror game we're trying to make and the Red Dead Redemption blog the gunslinger's lament.

Formerly visions-and-revisions.

I’m sure a lot of you already read XKCD but this is very very important.

Just working on my designs for the characters in RJ Anderson’s Faery Rebels books, since I just finished reading Nomad. So many feels omg— but anyway, here’s Knife, Linden, Rhosmari and Ivy.

Characters (c) RJ Anderson

*makes noise of sheer glee that only dogs can hear*I want to reblog this to the Faery Rebels Tumblr RIGHT NOW but the sad truth is I created it before I knew you could link new tumbles to your existing one, so every time I want to reblog stuff I have to like it, being it up on my regular dashboard, open it in a new browser tab, log out and back in with a new email and password, and THEN reblog it, which is a royal pain.I have been resisting deleting the old Faery Rebels tumblr and starting over because there is so much stuff on it and I don’t have the time to go through and reblog it all manually to a new one, but ugh this is frustrating.So, uh, have some faeries?

Another thought: stay logged in with your other account in a different browser, and use an “open with” plugin in your main browser. You’ll probably be able to right-click the reblog link and open it in the other browser with the right blog.

You know, funny story: There’s this craft store called Michaels. Look, my sister knits, and she goes to Michaels. So my sister called me and she’s like, “Oh my god, I’m at Michaels, picking up yarn. You have a poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “What?” She’s like, “There’s a poster, there’s a Falcon poster at Michaels.” I’m like, “Holy s**t!” She’s like, “I’m gonna come and pick you up, and we’re gonna see your poster in this store.” So she picks me up and we go to Michaels.

We go in, and I see the poster and I’m like, “Oh, this is….” She’s like, “I know, I know.” I said, “I’m gonna sign these posters.” I was like, “That would be amazing, you buy a poster and it’s like, actually signed by the Falcon.” Like, it would blow my mind. So I go to the front, I buy a Sharpie, I run back to the back of the store. And she’s like, “I’m gonna take a picture of you signing it.”

I’m in this store and I’m signing all the posters. The manager comes out, he’s like, “Hey, whatcha doing?” I was like, “Oh man, I’m signing these posters so when people buy ‘em, they’re signed.” He’s like, “Well, people are not gonna buy ‘em if they’re signed.” And I was like, “No, no, no, it’s cool. I’m pretty sure there won’t be a problem.” And he goes, “Yeah, but it is gonna be a problem, you’re messin’ up my inventory.” And I’m like, “No, my man, trust me. I mean, I’m the Falcon, that’s me!” And he goes, “Yeah, right. You’re gonna buy those posters.” I said, “What?” He’s like, “You’re gonna buy all those posters or I’m gonna call the police.”

He rolls up all the posters and goes to the front of the store. And I had to buy like 60 Falcon posters that I signed in Michaels.

This is a funny story, but it also makes me kind of sad, because I suspect this would have been less likely to happen if he were white.

 It probably says a lot about me that my first thought every time I see this is not actual California but the NCR in Fallout New Vegas. In my defense, the NCR flag is basically identical, except it’s got a mutated two-headed bear.

Laurence Olivier Awards 2014 - Red Carpet Arrivals

The scar is worse than I thought! I still wouldn’t kick him out of bed though….

dhabocvecnejdibbenfjwihbrjfuckyouall

I dunno, guys, has he really had it long enough that we can call it a scar? I mean, I’ve had a number of cuts/scratches that I thought would scar because they stayed visible for quite a while, but basically all of them disappeared once they’d fully healed.

Jim Beaver: First day working with Tom Hiddleston. He is my ideal as an actor: brilliant, reliable, human, decent, open, and friendly. He charmed my daughter as he has charmed me. I think my kid charmed him, too. This is a fellow I could joyfully spend the rest of my career working with. He’s that good and that generous.
