Julia - XanaDuMalion

Thor's Day

Happy birthday to rustymarble!

The usual, thus far.
Managed to remember to bring my heart monitor back yesterday - go me! The nurse says that if I don't hear from the doctor by Friday, I should call on Monday. *nod*

What came out yesterday was Julia and Capri's first meeting, and Julia's interesting reaction to same. Damn, I like it that the writerbrain's back.

Interesting reaction being nonsexual. I know I talk a bit about their relationship, but that's down the road - when they meet, Julia's very feral, very cagey, and ain't nobody layin' a hand on her; Capri's the first girl she becomes attracted to, and that doesn't happen til she gets to know her pretty damn well.

No. When Julia first sees Capri, she has a bit of a shock - because it's the first time in her life she's ever seen anyone who looks anything like her. The girl who's gone her whole life among humans, feeling like an alien - then meeting Dasaroi, but of different Houses - finally sees someone who looks like family.

It's not a surprising reaction, when I think about it; I just didn't know about it til it came out of my pen.

I'm a heathen; I found the overwhelming McKean-ness distracting. I liked the movie, mind. Just - distracty.

I promise I will continue answering questions soon.

EDIT: And lo, I have done so!

If you haven't asked/told, come on and do so. If you have, you can do so again.

Court garb redux

Pretty Dusti knows someone who can make Tamrani court garb for me.


So, if all goes well timingwise, I'll be dressed like this one day at Arisia.

(I still need to pick out and order a corset for one of the other nights. It's a big purchase, my first corset. I'm like a deer in the headlights over here.)

Me to Dusti: "...my brain is so horny right now."

museumfreak: "How long is long enough to wait, when you've gotten a girl's number? So's not to seem desperate?"
yendi: "When did you get it?"
museumfreak: "Saturday."
yendi: "Today's Wednesday - today's good. It's not like you're calling on Sunday or anything."
shadesong: "Calling on Sunday would have been bad?"
yendi: "Generally."
shadesong: "Oh." *pause* "I would have called on Sunday."
yendi, indulgently: "I know, sweetie."

I get new-person fascination, I get little-r NrE (speaking of which, 10 months with docorion and I'm still in big-R NRE!); I have to actively fight that in order to not be what sibylla would call "a big weirdie". Except that I would be a little weirdie, for lo, I am wee. When I meet someone shiny, I just want to sit down with them and get their entire life story and give them mine and oh, no, sleep over tonight so we can talk more tomorrow, 'k? 'K. It is very like "Whee!"

And... other people aren't like that. So a lot of my interpersonal communication involves me sort of sitting on my hands as tiiime craaaawls as we operate on a normal-person schedule. And I get all fidgety.

So if I'm out for coffee with you and I get all infodump-y, it's just that you're verra shiny.

And I'll probably e-mail you the next day.
