Nerd Church - Power and Privilege In 2020


(Warning: This post discusses 2020. 

Which means it discusses:

- Coronavirus/Covid 19, and the death statistics
- racism
- racist murder (inc. murder of Black people by the police)
- Transphobia
- Transphobic murder
- Homophobia/Queerphobia
- Donald Trump

...I think that's everything. 2020, everyone.)



Power and Privilege in 2020



Well... it's been a week, right?


Unfortunately, if there's one theme to this week, both here in the UK and over in the USA, it's this: The more power and privilege someone has, the more they will abuse that power and privilege.

Friday Fics Fix - Wholesome Hargreeves Family Bonding!



'“We’re having a game night. A family game night. Because that’s what families do.” 

“It is?” Vanya asked. 

“Since when?” Five said at almost exactly the same time.'

I can't stay away from The Umbrella Academy for long - and neither do I want to!

There's a popular meme in the fandom of a family games night.


...Well, amazing. Tbh.

Comics Wrap-Up - I Said There's So Much More That You Won't See



'Comics Wrap-Up' with lined-notebook-style background and speech bubbles containing heart symbols


It's Thursday, we're still here, let's get some superhero-y and comics-y goodness!

(And once again everything's in the 'Other Stuff' category, for which we will blame Loki.)

Nerd Church - The Writer Diaries: One of My Side Characters Is Pouting!



I can't get the side characters from my Work-in-Progress (WIP) to do what I want!



I know, to people who don't write fiction that probably doesn't make much sense. 

Surely, I, as the author, am in control? *laughs in writer* HELL NO!

Sorry to break this to you, but authors have extremely limited control over their characters. 

Essentially we write down what they're doing to the best of our ability... and attempt to cut out any scenes where they're doing sh** they shouldn't. With mixed results.

Friday Fics Fix - Drarry In An Elevator



They stand in another stretch of silence before a great screeching sound reverberates throughout the elevator.

For reasons best known to yourselves, dearest nerdlets, one of my perenially popular posts - especially with Google searches - is Drarry In A Cupboard.

So, if you're a fan of Drarry in a cupboard, then I have a treat for you today - Drarry in an elevator!

(Anybody else mentally singing Aerosmith's 'Love In An Elevator'? Just me. Ok.)

(Fangirling notes: Drarry is Draco and Harry with a romantical and/or sexy-ness relationship.)

Micropoetry - April 2020


I realise it's the 20th of May, but I have a very limited sense of space/time and a lack of organisation so... *shrugs*



OK, here's the micropoetry I wrote in April.

...And for some reason in April my brain decided to produce Haikus. I don't even know, tbh.

As always, for those using screen-readers, the poetry is in the alt-text, with / marks to show line breaks.
