Halloween 2011

 Just finished this year's Halloween pumpkin. I meant to print out a pattern but forgot and decided to just freehand draw some stuff.



My brother's comment was "Only a genetics researcher would carve that." Au contraire! A genetics researcher OR a fantasy buff. Fortunately I fit both criteria.

Comment fic, "Red Silk", PG-13

Squirreling this away for posterity. Written for the comment fic fest on [community profile] cap_ironman , which is filled with quietly magnificent fic you should go read. The prompt is from the lovely [personal profile] muccamukk and goes like this:

"Steve has found, over the years, that getting tied up really turns him on. Now all he has to do is figure out how to tell Tony."

I'm torn between sniffling and cheering.

This week I found out who Bill Millin is. Or was, I suppose; he passed away in mid-August.

Here's his obituary at the Economist.

Bill Millin played the bagpipes at the D-Day landings. He landed on Sword Beach, on June 6 of 1944, wearing a small ceremonial dagger and carrying his pipes, with no other weapons on him. He played for his brigade as they stormed the beach, as they crossed bridges under sniper fire; the German snipers later said they thought he was a madman, and so held their fire.

Gentlemen, this is why you do not fuck with the Scottish.

Good on you, Mr. Millin. In the past, I've wanted to laugh, hearing bagpipes. I don't think I will again.

Scruffy approves.

As so many others have said:

I would ask that you please not use Facebook or Twitter when you comment here (yes, all five of you). Like many others, I keep my fannish and personal lives strictly separate for a variety of reasons. And the current crossposting controls are not tight enough for me to feel comfortable with FB or Twitter posts.

I will not be linking or using my Facebook account while interacting (commenting, posting, otherwise making a digital trail) in LiveJournal. Still just the same old _aura with the same old snark.

Thanks, everyone! Here's to secret identities and personal privacy!

EDIT: Oh oh, I forgot to ask- is there an Idiot's Guide to mirroring posts to Dreamwidth somewhere? It seems like this is a good time for me to finally do that.

A Canon Hail Mary

Hey Marvel fans: I remember hearing about Steve's friend Artie (they grew up together, I believe Artie showed up as Steve's token Gay Friend in the 70s or 80s). Did Artie have a last name?

Thanks all!

Edited to add: His name is ARNIE. Arnie Roth. /derp I'm glad I asked before I posted this fic.
