OMG MINEKURA holy shipbait.

(You had better be making these two explicit in the end game because if you go this far, HOLY SDKFJ.)

Also, it's wonderful to see Kougaiji again, and he's still being an absolute noble idiot, no surprise there. I'm very curious to see how this will develop.

About meme: I am frazzled enough to play, and the results have so far been deeply amusing, so:

via [personal profile] shati: I've got a list of characters from various fandoms numbered 1-15, give me scenarios/questions with combinations of characters (e.g. 1 and 5 walk into a bar, and get into a fight with 7. who wins?), hilarity ensues.

The books I'm reading: A wind from the south, by Diane Duane. I've developed this habit of reading books in bites on my iPhone (yes, really. Stanza is an awesome and free ebook reader that rapidly fades into invisibility, try it!) and what fiction I'm reading at the moment often depends on what I can find for cheap or free in ePub format. It's epic fantasy, set in Switzerland during the Holy Roman Empire, and I find the cultural backdrop fascinating, more than redeeming the slow pace and the gratuitous Romansch. Rites of Peace, by Adam Zamoyski: beautifully written book on the slow and freighted process of reconstructing Europe in the wake of Napoleon's defeat. There are strong resonances off of Tuchman's Guns of August: strong personalities, national blinders, breathtaking egos, and the intermittent will towards stupidity.

The books I'm writing: hahahaha oh god they're on hold, the only thing I'm writing these days is research papers. which is what I'm doing right now hi Internet I'll just be leaving.

The book I love the most: um. ALL OF THEM except the bad ones.

The last book I received as a gift: a book of essays by Steven Weinberg, as a Christmas gift. I haven't had a chance to read it (sob).

The last book I gave as a gift: a small text on constructing those spectacular geometrical Islamic decorative patterns, to my dad, for his birthday.

The nearest book: a textbook on quantum field theory. (and my iPhone.)

The last book I bought myself: Hmm. I don't remember for sure, but probably Lifelode, by Jo Walton -- sitting on my bookshelf waiting for me to have a moment to breathe.
