First, a strongly worded letter:

cut )

Now that that's out of the way, some of you may remember that I once wrote a sort of jokey Coffeeshop AU for Stand Still Stay Silent. Because I'm awful at finishing things and even more awful at writing anything that isn't a oneshot, I haven't actually worked in it in months - but now that there's another one on the scene I've felt compelled to finish. Spite is a great motivator, as they say. So, stay tuned sometime this week for Chapter 3, in which Emil is a failboat and Lalli is more okay with it than you'd think.

You. Yes, you. 

Do you like looking at pretty pictures with words on them?

And did you ever think "what if those urban fantasy novels were set in some middle-of-nowhere town in Oklahoma"?

If the answer is yes then you need to read this RIGHT NOW because there is a webcomic I really like that has both of those things and by sheer coincidence is also running a Kickstarter campaign to get the first three chapters printed! Not that I'm only writing about it to get you to back it, noooo of course not. Anyway, here is

Wilde Life

This series is great, you guys. It's been running for two years so far and the art and writing and research behind it is great. There are ghosts and witches and a snarky teenage werewolf, all seen through the eyes of Unlucky Everydude Oscar. That's him up there having a small crisis. That happens kind of a lot. It's funny and creepy and borrows a lot from Native American mythology. 

Need more proof?

Soooo you should all go read Wilde Life and contribute to the Kickstarter if you have a chance!

☀ Finished The Motherless Oven. This book is surreal as all heck. Like - I am still not entirely sure what happened. It's like, you know when you have a dream and while you're dreaming it makes sense but when you wake up you realize it was really weird? That's kind of what this book is like. I sort of started to get at least SOME sense of a plot and how the whole world works towards the end, but not enough to explain, well... anything. 

☀ I had some leftover chopped hazelnuts so I decided to take another stab at chokladbollar. Last time I made them they turned out far too sweet so I cut the sugar in half. Also the cut-up chocolate chips I used for the outside last time got really hard and kinda weird in the fridge, so the nuts should solve that problem. They look like big truffles! So cute. 

☀ This has been thoroughly yelled about over on  [personal profile] yuuago 's journal but I am really really loving this chapter of Stand Still Stay Silent. All the characters that I love but who don't usually get much screentime (Tuuri, Onni <3) are right there and it's amazing. To  be honest, seeing Tuuri in the header image was one of the things that first attracted me to this comic. I couldn't think of any other time where a small chubby girl was in a post-apocalyptic comic, so that made it immediately worth checking out. And Onni, gosh I just have a lot of headcanons about Onni that I won't go into here. 

☀ Also, you know that feeling where you know exactly how a fic should go, and you can picture it, but you just can't write it? I've been wresting with this one thing about Kenma for weeks now and I got to a certain point where all the sentences feel awkward and weird and end up deleting everything I write. Blargh >.<
