Micropoetry - January 2020



I hoped to get January's Micropoetry post out earlier than this but... *shrugs*

Life happens. And I'm working hard on not over-working (I know, #WalkingContradiction ftw)

I'm also kinda nervous about this month's poems, 'cos... I don't know, tbh. I just am 😅 So hopefully you'll like them!

As always, for those using a screen-reader, the poems are in the alt-text, and line breaks are shown with / marks.

Nerd Church - 7 Amazing Queer Songs To Bring You Joy and Brighten Your Weekend



I think we could all do with a little oomph and some good tunes, right?

These tracks are both awesomely awesome, and Queer af.

The world wears down on Queer folks - and sometimes it's good to just surround ourselves with the creations of our LGBTQ+ siblings.

But then, the world's weary atm whether you're Queer or not, so I hope all of you enjoy this little pick me up! 😀


Here we go then:

Friday Fics Fix - Roses Are Good Omens



'“Come to my flat for drinks tomorrow?” He forces a casualness to his voice that he does not feel. “I’ve got a bottle of Glenfiddich I’ve had since 1937 and it’s about time you left the bookshop for something other than pastries and feeding ducks.”'

So... I wasn't going to do a Valentine's post.

Partly because I don't like to get overly-smooshy. 

Partly because, given my experiences with overly-explicit, sexual, holiday-related fics...

- If fandom can do that kind of thing with Halloween, think of how far they could go with Valentine's! *shudders* If I never read another pumpkin-sex fic, it'll be too soon. They find me. Every year.

Nerd Church - The Truth?



Caution: This is one of those existential crises type posts with more questions than answers! Enjoy! 😅



What is the truth?

How can we tell what the truth is, in this supposedly 'post-truth,' 'alternative facts,' world?

Does the truth even matter any more?

Let's break this down, dearest nerdlets.



The Truth...? title image. White text on plain black background.

Friday Fics Fix - A Dose of the Warm Fuzzies



'...“Because life is one big joke,” Klaus replies with a grin.

Diego shakes his head, feeling a headache start to form, and drops the interrogation.'

Not gonna lie, there're some similarities between this week's fic rec, and last week's fic rec - albeit they're from different fandoms.

They both have ill characters being taken of by their brothers, though (in this case, Klaus is ill, Diego's headache didn't develop 😅.)

And they're both about troubled characters who have, nevertheless, snuck their way into our hearts.
