Flower Moon

There's a very beautiful full moon outside, shining partly veiled through the clouds. I'm not at all sure about calling it the Flower Moon this year--we've had barely a handful of dandelions so far this year, though the wood violets are just starting to bloom. But the roses are just starting to put out leaves, so the garden looks kind of scraggly soon.

In better news, the garage comes down tomorrow, which will be one less thing I have to worry about, and another of my stories has been sponsored over at Torn World. As soon as our Webmistress has the chance to convert it from subscribers-only to public, you will be able to read my story The Experiment, where we meet Filor's science-geek cousin.

Filor and his cousin are both adoptable characters, by the way.

Besides work and getting ready for the garage to come down, I spent the day working on a new Torn World story about a young intersex person in the Empire. The Empire's (unnecessarily obtuse) term for people who aren't male or female is "no-gender", however, there are places in the Empire where that term, and the new gender reform laws, are a great improvement over local tradition.

Now I'd better wash the mold spores and dust from the garage off, so I'll sleep well and be rested for work tomorrow.

Do any of you have plans for the full moon?

I haven't been reading as much as I wanted to, and I miss your stories. I know I can find them on Torn World but haven't had emotional energy to go there yet. I look forward to catching up.

Our full moon tonight was huge and yellow, a wonderful harvest moon. I didn't get to enjoy it as much as I'd like as I was driving.

And I haven't been as good at doing everything as I had hoped!

You are definitely welcome over there. It's become big enough that each person can explore at their own pace; if you feel lost, let me know!

It's so strange and wonderful (and perfectly ordinary, I know) that your harvest moon is my spring-hasn't-really-sprung moon.

Post Script
I hope you have, at least, been reading the Torn World stories over here. I do at least try to make sure stuff over here can be read stand-alone, with no prior Torn World experience.

Once you get over there, the stories that start with Building A Home (and The Experiment, which is an earlier story about one of those characters) will likely be of interest to you.

I bet you'd also like Wild Snowy Chase, which is about different characters in a different part of the world, but which has a "flavor" more like Fireborn than the other series of stories.
