This is one of the best fic memes that I've seen. I love most of these questions.

My fic

1: What inspired you to write the fic this way?
2: What scene did you first put down?
3: What’s your favorite line of narration?
4: What’s your favorite line of dialogue?
5: What part was hardest to write?
6: What makes this fic special or different from all your other fics?
7: Where did the title come from?
8: Did any real people or events inspire any part of it?
9: Were there any alternate versions of this fic?
10: Why did you choose this pairing for this particular story?
11: What do you like best about this fic?
12: What do you like least about this fic?
13: What music did you listen to, if any, to get in the mood for writing this story? Or if you didn’t listen to anything, what do you think readers should listen to to accompany us while reading?
14: Is there anything you wanted readers to learn from reading this fic?
15: What did you learn from writing this fic?

Check Please!

Last night, in search of stuff that was 'like' (for a given value of 'like') Yuri!!! on Ice, I stayed up late reading through Check Please from the beginning.

Rather than explain it in depth, I'll just link to this (spoilery) primer: The Queer Hockey Bros Webcomic You Should Be Reading.

I enjoyed it and found it a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. Although my current assessment is "doesn't hold a candle to YoI," I remember that my first assessment of YoI on Dreamwidth was the notably lukewarm "I may be kind of enjoying it... the romance is rather sweet." Interestingly, although the relationship between Jack and Bitty in Check Please has zero ambiguity, we see less of its development than we do of the relationship between Victor and Yuuri. I felt that the narrative skips over a lot, but I suppose that just leaves space for fandom to fill in. There definitely seems to be some good fic available, and a surprising amount of it – over 5000 works!

More observations:
• It's an achievement that this managed to make me feel sympathetic about hockey bros. To be fair, they're Massachusetts liberal arts college bros, who may be a slightly different breed.
• Unlike YoI, this is set in a universe where homophobia exists, but embedded within a basically homophobia-free college and sports team. I feel like we're going to get a collision with the wider world soon, as the characters are closeted beyond the sphere of friends and family, and wonder how it's going to turn out.
• It's interesting how this has many of the same themes as YoI but combined in different ways. YoI if Victor had Yuuri's anxiety and JJ's pushy Canadian family.

In conclusion, or perhaps in a complete derail, I really want to read a proper longfic from someone who knows their sports where Victor ends up going into hockey instead of figure skating. Including his journey from KHL to NHL. It would be most obvious to have him playing for SKA Saint Petersburg – which means he'd still be based at Yubileyny Sports Palace! – but I love the names of some of the other teams. Metallurg Magnitogorsk, Traktor Chelyabinsk, Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. Victor is slightly shorter than the average NHL player (though they'd probably just lie and say he was 6 feet even), and certainly a good deal lighter, but the latter would be mainly down to the difference in training regimens. Anyway, it would be interesting, but very much not something that I could write.

ETA: Dear God, I just realised that 'Check Please!' has an exclamation point in its title too. This really is a metric of how gay a source text is, isn't it?

ETA 2: Evgeni Plushenko plays hockey on an amateur team! How did I not know this? So interesting.

* I almost have my MRI referral, yay. First I must go for an X-ray, boo, because my med insurance requires one before the other. The facility has walk-in X-rays, boo, and to get in line, I'll have to rise even earlier, which usually leads to Reason's early rising, too, double boo. It's more than 5 km from the office, boo, on a bus line, yay.

I don't understand the logic that requires irradiation to rule out bone chips before imaging soft tissue, given that I have partial use of my shoulder---continually so since the fall three months ago. I am enormously glad to have partial use of my shoulder, to be clear: I can type and handwrite, get into a shirt without much trouble, open a lightweight door, even do forearm planks and ± hang the laundry. (I hang everything besides sheets because I like wearing things out, not having the dryer do it for me.) I can't hand my child a fork or spoon without pain, however, given where we sit at table: angle of extension, not how demanding the task is. After my grumpy post about near-total lack of abduction, I tried the bicycle, which overtaxed my left shoulder in compensation but led to a nap, not a fall. ...yay? (Informed risks are part and parcel of chronic pain, anyway.) While I read random web things, my left hand uses the mouse while my right arm bends and curls into my ribs unbidden, as though my body could protect it. Sorry, arm and axle; please keep waiting.

* Reason is so annoyed that Hidden Figures the book is "for grownups" and has "a ton of text." Wait two or three years, little one, and you'll probably skate through it. (She wouldn't be so irritated were she unable to conceive of herself reading it.) There's apparently a Young Readers version, but our nearest library doesn't have it.

In 2003, it felt like I was screaming into a void: it was obvious, even to me at the time, and I was still in high school, that the Iraq war was bogus profiteering, but the "grown ups" at the NYT and in the world at large were infuriatingly resistant to seeing that reality. There was a hopelessness: nobody was listening.

Now, in 2017, 2 months after the inauguration of the Orange Man, people are starting to listen, and I am strangling on my own rage. I'd thought it would have felt vindicating -- but instead, I don't know how to speak civilly with people who are only now, when it is too late, becoming interested in looking toward the truth.

The absence of HRC from the conversation is a hole, a wound. Vladimir Putin attempted to destroy our republic because he was afraid of her, and wanted to punish her, and apparently enough of us shared those feelings that they were able to take her down.

Mirok Li, Der Yalu fließt, trans. as The Yalu Flows by H. A. Hammelmann (1956): as a young man, Li was instructed by his mother to flee north across the nearby Amnok River (a.k.a. Yalu) and escape the Japanese police, probably circa 1920. He never returned to Korea; from China he made his way to Bavaria and worked as a doctor until his death in 1950. Besides this book, which is a remembrance of his childhood---it ends quite abruptly after his river-crossing into Manchuria---Li left scraps of a second book, which Hammelmann describes as a reflection upon juxtaposing European life with his Eastern upbringing. Think about it for a moment: born around the time when the Japanese government began occupying Korea, departed shortly after the March 1 movement---and then, somehow, sufficiently at home in a Bavarian village that people came to him for medical consultation amidst the tumult of the Third Reich.

A whole paragraph of my notes-while-reading was eaten by something, probably OneNote, so I no longer have the romanized names that caught my eye. "Mirok" is 미륵, more usually Mirŭk or Mireuk, as in the usual Korean rendering of Maitreya, the Buddha; his father's given name is rendered "Kamtsal," and due to Li's childhood training in classical Chinese, I'm not sure what to do with that Wade-Gilesish ts- as filtered through German. Chŏl, maybe? Two more bits have floated up while I type---Li's father asks him once whether he has heard of the great Korean poet "Kim-Saggaz," and Li's teaching includes the works of "Mang-dsa"---that's Menzius auf deutsch, usually Mencius or Mengzi in English.

I can see why people place this and Younghill Kang's The Grass Roof together, but Kang's text is almost painfully satirical, whereas Li's is almost painfully earnest, too earnest to be much truer than Kang's. Li's account is nonetheless nearer the technically fictional yet memoirish Richard E. Kim's Lost Names (1970), as expected.

I really wish that more writers besides these men and Park Wan-suh (her preferred romanization) had felt empowered to express themselves in semi-autobiographical writing (with a visibility level enabling translation into a language I can read). It's selfish, but seriously, they're all from yangban families---why don't we have a wider representation of voices? At this point, if we don't, we won't---they're dead---unless someone's writings are discovered late.

With the departure of Chris, one of the key unifying factors among the crew (viz. hatred of Chris) has vanished. This is a dangerous time for Ant. With no-one else to blame, will they turn on him? Things are made tenser, at least according to Philip Glenister, because they are, for the fourth time in the series, approaching "the most dangerous stage of their voyage."

*And given what Ant finally fell out with Chris over, I was unimpressed by him standing in the prow wearing his harness like a lei AGAIN, during a gybe in a biggish swell very close to the reef. Getting him back if he fell in wouldn't be any picnic.

Laura Hillenbrand, Seabiscuit: An American Legend: This is the non-fiction book that was adapted into that movie a while back and it was very well-written and it made me remember that I spent my entire childhood being crazy about horses and also, bizarrely, I seem to remember a lot of details about historical horse-racing (thank you, Black Stallion series) while knowing almost nothing about Seabiscuit, I guess because he never won the Triple Crown, and anyway now I want a 1930s Steve/Tony horse-racing AU please and thank you. (I suppose I could write that instead of my plans for the Big Bang.)

The good news is I made this amazingly gorgeous loaf of bread today! Glorious, glorious crust! Beautiful bubbles in the bread! A good sound when you knock on the bottom! The loveliest gluten strands and bubbles in the dough!

This created two problems for me. One, there is simply too much bread. It is gigantic. It is delicious. It is huge. There is just so much of this bread.

Behold! Behold! )

The other problem, well... The other problem won't get solved until 8 AM Thursday morning. )

Once again, an unexpected, hey-I-could-make-that gift has squeezed other items down a step in the queue. Soon I'll see a friend from grad school who had a baby a few months ago. We have the slightly awkward habit of exchanging small gifts---tl;dr not my idea, and culturally bound. It's far simpler to bring a gift for a baby than for a person who eschews thinginess. I mean, baby gift or fruit basket? Baby gift.

The last time I attempted baby gifts, I failed utterly. This time there is only one child---no extras for older sibs, etc. With one temporarily free-to-use pattern, the friend's prior (over-)generosity is balanced, I think. Plus, it uses yarn that I'd nearly given up on reassigning after it proved too soft and splitty to crochet into a small dragon. It's Dale Baby Ull (wool)---all right for knitting. (I used different yarn to crochet a kangaroo + joey for Reason instead, three years ago.)

It helps that a toddler-sized garment is small; it's a bit past the halfway mark. Cajsa cardigan's lower edge is mid-bindoff, and one pocket-bag's edges have been sewn.

Also, nnnngh, Reason's legwarmers have wanted so much k1,p1, but at last they're finished. It's nice to have a positive example for a child of something horribly boring that has a good reason for pursuit...? (We did talk about it in those terms.) Photo sometime after they're dry.

Roundup and junk

I’ve been writing up a storm lately, and it’s resulted in a lot of actual fic. Here’s a round-up, in case you don’t follow me on Tumblr or Twitter.

* Selfishness Must Always Be Forgiven, ACCA 13-ku Kansatsuka, Jean/Nino, Explicit, 5550 words - Set after episode 8, Jean tries to get Nino to realize their relationship is different from what Nino thinks it is.

* Without You, ACCA 13-ku Kansatsuka, Jean/Nino, Mature, 630 words - Set during episode 10, Jean does some stuff in front of an open window.

ACCA’s my new obsession, and before you can ask, no, it doesn’t stand for anything. But it has one of the best should-be-creepy-but-somehow-isn’t relationships I’ve ever seen, which is totally my jam, and has a surprisingly interesting main plot about politics and bread. If you’re at all interested in it, I recommend watching before reading my fics because they’ve both got huge spoilers. It's streaming on Crunchyroll, there are only two more episodes left, and I’m already grieving it ending.

* Detoxicated, Yuri!!! on ICE, Phichit/Chris, Victor/Yuri, implied other permutations therein, Mature, 1640 words - Phichit cracks the glass on his phone because of a literal run-in. Confession time: I also broke my phone recently, about a week before I wrote this, so there’s the very complicated writing inspiration process for you.

* A Lot of Heart, Prince of Tennis, Inui/Kaidoh, General Audiences, 5850 words - Inui gets recruited by the baseball team and actually quits tennis. Yep, writing in this again and having a great time, just deal with it.

And not mine, but for me because I'm very lucky: [personal profile] prillalar's Yuri on Ice tennis AU fanart is a thing of beauty. Oh, you didn't know Hal was an artist, too? You've been missing out.

In not-fic linking stuff, I’ve picked up a bunch of shows lately: March Comes in like a Lion, Powerless, Riverdale, Haikyuu!! (why so many exclamation points, anime?). Plus, [personal profile] barnacling and I did a trade off Skam and ACCA, so I’ll watch Skam after I finish Haikyuu. Though if I understand things correctly, I’m only supposed to watch one season of that? I don’t know how Norwegian shows work.

Also, I had most of last week off because of spring break from school, a vacation day, a snow day, and a day when my office was closed, which explains my “productivity” and I’m not looking forward to getting back to my regular packed schedule tomorrow. However, I’ve been sticking to a write for at least 15 minutes a day plan even on my normal days, and that produces around 500 words a day. So many words! I’m practically Stephen King.
