Awful as the #LondonBridge attack is, the English spirit is feisty - all colours, all races, all backgrounds. As a friend commented on Twitter this morning, the takedowns are strong with this one!

I don't have any friends presently in London, although I have had in the past.

Some sections of Australian Christianity (and for at least some of these people, I'm using the term very lightly) are calling for the same kind of Muslim Ban that Republican 45 has instigated.

I think for me, the irony is that such a ban from Christians assumes that the greatest good for a Christian is to be safe, secure, and prosperous in an unthreatening society. Which I think is completely the wrong focus, and is quite probably where western Christianity has gone way off the rails - and why we're stagnating while the 3rd world faith is growing.

There's now a sedoretu promptfest on AO3, along with a collection to add stories to. I've picked up a Twelfth Night prompt (and picked up, then released a Narnia-Archenland one), and the story only has to be 1000 words...

The collection (Morning, Evening, Day, Night) will take any sedoretu stories. I started adding Sharp Evening Stars And Bright Morning Flame stories to it, before I decided against it and took them off. I'm feeling sensitive lately, in a "nobody likes me, they're just not going to say anything and will laugh behind my back" kind of way. I'll add at least the last story - the one where they get together - eventually. When I'm feeling less tender about my character and writing choices.

And, to add on top of everything, I (probably) broke my finger at hockey yesterday. Again. Although not the same finger. Typing is an achey proposition right now, and I am two weeks into new work where I think they're realising they don't need me as much (or as urgently) as they thought they would.

I'm guessing that I won't be getting that second quilt finished for the show after all.

And to top it all off, I'm getting a crown capping done this evening on The Tooth. Yes, that one. (Which is still giving me trouble, but the dentist is worried about it falling apart before they can get the crown on it.)

I pulled the sedoretu fic out of the WIP Big Bang. They were having trouble finding anyone to make art for me, and it's not going to get any better. Plus, the story isn't exactly speeding along. If I get it done by the end of the year, I think I'll be pretty impressed with myself.

The Wonder Woman movie produced a few plotbunnies, but they're neither particularly long ideas nor terribly brilliant. I'd kind of like to get back into writing Batman/Wonder Woman again, though, and that might become possible as the JL movie looms loomingly.

I don't think I can commit to anything in the next two weeks, though. I have a quilt that needs to be completed and handed in by the 14th, and I haven't even finished all the blocks. Plus, my life has gotten a wee smidge out of control lately with work and socialising and everything.
