The sum total of my contributions to the Q+A portions (and thus the formal portions) of SBL/AAR was So Jael the Vampire Slayer is a thing that exists in the world.

Off-record, I managed to say to a speaker I encountered later at a restaurant, "I really appreciated your critique of [scholar's] paper."

And everything else was culture consumed.

games:

I'm playing Marvel Puzzle Quest, which is Bejeweled with Marvel heroes, because it was nominated for Yuletide. It is, as is the nature of Bejeweled, incredibly addictive. I should probably see if the computer can endure playing it and podcasts at the same time, so I'm not completely wasting my time.

There isn't a lot of narrative, but the dialogue is witty and I've laughed a bunch of times.

books:

I read I and II Samuel for Sunday school. [personal profile] vass, I think I've changed my mind and wanna cliff David, so I suppose shag Saul?

As happened when I skimmed I Samuel for that conversation with Vass, I have lots of Saul feels.

The Inclusive Bible puts an intentional David/Jonathan slant on the story, because Inclusive Bible.

Other reading:
I finished The Family Trade, by Charles Stross. Not going to read more of the series, even though the book ends -- not on a cliffhanger, but also not at a particularly satisfying ending place.

I read The Writing Class by Jincy Willett in one long sitting and enjoyed it very much. Possibly what Tiggers are in the mood for is mystery, not sf?

Nevertheless, I'm working on the 22nd Year's Best Science Fiction ed. Gardner Dozois. Like the last volume of this anthology I read, this is fairly entertaining. I really liked the first story, "Inappropriate Behavior" by Pat Murphy.

tv:
Some more of OuAT. I most recently watched 2x13, "Tiny," and predictably cried. This show this show this shooooooow

sports:
Listened to an inning and a half of the Royals game last night. I really, really want to care about the Royals (because Kansas City is my home), but apparently I just don't. :/

Bible crossovers for [personal profile] mayhap.

 

1.  Naomi  ends up on Serenity, where I think her personality (planning/plotting to protect family) will mesh just fine. Kaylee ship ensues, because obvs.

2.  Miriam, Shiphrah, Puah, the Egyptian princess, possibly Zipporah battle Goa'uld, defeat them, alter history.

3. Esther x America's Next Top  Model fusion.

4. Rogue!transgirl!Jacob/Mage!Rachel/Warrior!Leah have RPG style adventures. (Not strictly speaking a crossover bunny, but you could fuse worldbuilding from favorite RPG mythology. Also I just made Jacob palatable to me -- because incestuous lesbian threesomes make everything more palatable y/y?)

5. Jael the Vampire Slayer.

6. Gossip Evangelist Luke blogs the glamorous lives of Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Susanna, Mary, Martha, Lazarus, Nicodemus, Simon the Pharisee, Joseph of Arimathea, Jesus of Nazareth, Simon Peter, Judas Iscariot, etc. in the Upper East Side.

 

Happy birthday, Mayhap! May your year be filled with improbable fanfic. :D

(If you want to give me a prompt, there is still ALL THE SPACE left in January.

For
[personal profile] vass, parts of the Bible that are especially amusing or entertaining.

1. Because I was a morbid child, I found the book of Judges, which is full of death and gore, entertaining at an early age. My favorite story in Judges is Jael slaying Sisera.

2. Genesis is also enormously soap-operaly entertaining, with gobs of sex and incest (and less gore than Judges). One of my favorite stories from Genesis is Tamar and Judah.

3.
And out came this calf! is the greatest excuse in the history of excuses.

4. My favorite person in scripture is probably Paul. I love him in a srs bsns conversation partner kind of way, but I also love how awesomepants cranky he can be. One of my favorite Paul moments: Paul's First Parochial Report.

5. Indeed these are not drunk as you suppose, for it is only 9 o'clock in the morning! Disciples gonna disciple. And speaking of, We saw someone casting out demons in your name, so we stopped them. DISCIPLES! And thus was "facepalm" invented.

6. Ezekiel eats a scroll.

Dear Yuletide Author,

Wee decapitated person is so happy you are writing for me that HANDS ARE IN THE AIR IN GLEEE. As I write this, sign-ups haven't even opened, yet I already know that you are out there, my Wondermous Yuletide Author of Wonder.

If you're writing for one of my other fandoms, yay! Thank you! I would be SO HAPPY to receive any of these requests that I will FALL OVER on Christmas morning. I will be NOT ABLE TO FUNCTION I will be so thrilled.

First, hi. My name is Ari. I'm a lesbian. I'm a Christian. I've been in fandom since 2003. This is my third Yuletide.

I like het, girlslash, boyslash, poly, incest, and gen. I like BDSM and all kinds of kink, genderfuck, crack, wingfic, magical realism, worldbuilding, thinky fic, and theology.

I don't like homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, racism, sexism, ableism, classism, anti-semitism or ageism. I really hope that won't be a problem with anything you write but just, yanno, throwing it out there.

Now, on to the specific requests.

In conclusion, THANK YOU! I hope you are excited and not daunted by at least one of my requests, and I hope you have or develop a really awesome plotbunny that you enjoy writing as much as I know I will enjoy reading.

If you have any questions about my tastes or preferences, you could ask a question through the mods, or you could ask [livejournal.com profile] hermionesviolin, partner in crime, who's sure to know.

Happy Yuletide! Thank you! <3<3<3

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I seem not to have posted immediately when the archive went live, but trust me, I was so there.

I am the luckiest Christmas kitten, because I got not one but TWO Naomi/Ruth stories! Both are lovely exercises in subtext, and you should read both of them. (Really.)

They are: The Story and In the Shadow of Her Wings.

I got subtextual cross-gen biblical girlslash for Christmas YAY!

Thank you, writers, one and... two.

I should go to bed. But instead, DIVING INTO THE ARCHIVE EEEEE!
