Magical Truthsaying Bastard Shadesong

Was down here trying to write... but the story isn't coming out to play. So I shall do a silly meme and then avaunt.

My journal is called _____ because _____.
My journal is called "scheherazade in blue jeans" because I'm a storyteller. That is, quite simply, Who I Am. Um. Don't know how else to say it. :) The blue jeans part is because that's what you'll find me in most days. Yes, it's slightly influenced by "No Myth".

My subtitle is _____ because _____.
My current subtitle is "when nothing is certain, everything is possible." I saw that on a plaque... and I'm not spending $40 on a plaque when I can just stick the sentiment up on my computer!

Nothing in my life is certain these days. I can't rely upon my brain and/or body functioning on a daily basis. So I try to remind myself of that. That anything can happen, and that that can also be a good thing.

My friends page is called _____ because _____.
My friends page is called "~~~prism~~mirror~~lens~~~". It's a Samuel R. Delany thing - Dhalgren. My friend Jackson, back in Vegas, pressed his copy into my hands and demanded that I read it, and rightly so.

That optical chain still glitters in my head. Prism. Mirror. Lens.

I'll talk more about Dhalgren - and about what "prism, mirror, lens" has mutated to be about for me - elsewhere, elsetime.

My username is ____ because _____.
My username is Shadesong because that's the handle I've always used online. That and Katrianna. Shadesong was originally an RPG character - Elfquest and Shadowrun - but I've been 'song online for nigh on eight years now, so it was the natural choice for an LJ name.

My default userpic is _____ because_____.
Currently it's the "silly me" one - by photognome - because I've been feeling whimsical more often than not.
