aldersprig: an egyptian sandcat looking out of a terra-cotta pipe (WinterTree)
The tiny creek that
drains our land is frozen, its
voice stilled: it, too, rests.


Okay, it's a culvert, not a creek. But it's still frozen. Winter is here!

House stuff has moved to a crawl; there's a lot we really can't do in the winter. We installed a closet rod & shelf in the closet - making the built-in cabinet will wait till spring, when we can stain & poly without killing ourselves. Soon, I think, we'll have the window finished, and then we can sleep in a bedroom!!

We bought granite tile to go under the wood-burning stove, and when that arrives (around the 7th), we can make a hearth board, then have a chimney person come and install the stove, and then we will have firefirefire.

Christmas was wonderful, hanging out with my folks & the dog on Xmas eve, cocoa with [personal profile] capriox, then Holmes with T. on Christmas Day (we skipped going out to Chinese and had pizza the day before instead). New year's was quiet - mostly knitting. I've been knitting a lot.

[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith wrote this lovely poem to my prompt in yesterday's fishbowl.

[personal profile] anke's free small art is still open! Go prompt! She's specifically asked for non-tipping prompts as well as tipping, so don't be shy!

[livejournal.com profile] rix_scaedu has posted the roundup from her call for prompts. If you haven't read them, well, read them!!
aldersprig: (Cali)
For [livejournal.com profile] cluudle's prompt.

The same characters as this story; Queen Larissa is also canonical Tír na Cali, in that she is one of the first characters I created in the world.

Tír na Cali has a landing page here on DW and here on LJ.


A slave was always at a bit of a disadvantage in dealing with his Mistress. The American-born kidnapped slave of the Queen of Tír na Cali was at even more of a disadvantage; their status could not, in this status-mad-society, be further apart unless he went rogue (at which point, he’d have bigger concerns than social disadvantages). When the Queen and Mistress was telepathic, there was no use even thinking of an advantage, not when she could turn off the telepathic damper at any time.

aldersprig: a woman's wrists in handcuffs (cuffs)
More story of Fae Apoc, the Black House, for Rix's request.

I could use someone to pick a communal card... or I can ran-generate one for me.
