Good stuff happened. After getting donations that allowed me to postpone my financial sky from falling I got one that was big enough to, while not fix the problems I have, at least table financial collapse for a good long while.
I wrote “Snarky Twilight: The Start of Chapter 15 (Or, that time Edward stepped into a bear trap),” which is a short bit explaining how Edward is there when Bella wakes up for the start of the chapter given that Snarky-Bella didn’t let him stay the night and took precautions, and “Narnia: If the heroes did their jobs: The Dinner Party,” which is the third fragment in the continuity where the heroes of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader actually act like heroes.

24 Comics That Capture The Frustration Of Anxiety Disorders (CN: anxiety, panic attacks)
What People Really Look Like. From a massage therapist’s blog. I have no idea how I came across it. “Let’s start here with what nobody looks like: nobody looks like the people in magazines or movies. Not even models. Nobody. Lean people have a kind of rawboned, unfinished look about them that is very appealing. But they don’t have plump round breasts and plump round asses. You have plump round breasts and a plump round ass, you have a plump round belly and plump round thighs as well. That’s how it works. (And that’s very appealing too.)” and “I’ll tell you what people look like, really: they look like flames. Or like the stars, on a clear night in the wilderness.”

April Ashley: The Vogue Model Who Became A Transgender Icon
“Born in the 1935 slums of Liverpool, April Ashley was one of the first people to undergo gender reassignment surgery at a time when it was nearly unheard of. A secret that would eventually derail her modeling career amid public scandal.”
So far the comments are even interesting
