I'm still at the point in the #writing process where the month-old everyone-lives happy-ending sex-scene AU crackfic short story is a kiloword longer than the canon story I've been working on writing and illustrating for the last year or so.

Worldbuilding idea, free for the taking
A heist in which the victims's shredder blades are replaced with rollers, so that papers fed into the shredder are passed, unmutiliated. #worldbuilding
How odd that there is no Seven-Ten List from a Utopian publication. Cousins I can forgive; there's probably a law against such a thing. But surely Utopia has such a list? #TerraIgnota

Man, that #Lego part #27168 is hard to get, but wonderfully useful for building certain types of sets. https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=27168#T=C&C=85
Pop-press coverage of #Jedi practising #Jediism is interesting. I should look more into how it is constructed and practised, to better inform the #Bionicle #neoreligion work. https://irradiate-space.tumblr.com/tagged/bionicle/chrono
Also from the Travellers' Guide to Esoteric Locations:
"Null Island: A Guide for the Misguided, 2010 edition"
Part of a series of tourists’ guides to ephemeral, liminal, temporary, or otherwise abnormal places, this book is noteworthy for the length and depth of its coverage of a buoy off the coast of Africa.
From the Travellers' Guide to Esoteric Locations:
"St Trimble's Island: A Guide for the Misguided, 2016 edition"
Part of a series of tourists’ guides to ephemeral, liminal, temporary, or otherwise abnormal places, this book is noteworthy for containing the only known published map of St. Trimble’s Island as well as a detailed investigation into the island’s economy, ecosystems, and culture.
Presently researching book covers for travel guides, so that I can get the St. Trimble's Island and Null Island entries in @lightsail_library some cover images.
"Bubble and Squeak" by David Gerrold and Ctein is a wonderful short story/novella thing that got included in Rich Horton's "The Year's Best Science Fiction and Fantasy 2019".
It's about a gay couple prepping for the impact of a 300-foot tsunami upon Los Angeles, California. #recommendation
