06:33 pm - New Story Up: Vengeance Sewn with Fey Cord

It was a nice surprise to find issue #13 of The Future Fire posted online today.


Editor Djibril al-Ayad opens this issue’s introduction with a line from recently departed Prince, from his song 1999, which adds an extra dark tone to an already dark issue.


I will scribble a more detailed post once things settle down with the renovation and the move and I have more than three frakking hours of computer time per day, but for now I would like to brag all over the web about my story included in this issue (as any self-respecting cat). “Vengeance Sewn with Fey Cord” is a story very dear to my heart, one spawned by the infamous phrase “weak as women’s magic.”


So I set out to argue that women’s magic is anything but weak. In my eyes, it is simply different and this, in some situations, makes it part of the Other. And those who underestimate this or, worse, try to suppress it, are in for a nasty surprise. A bit too nasty, in the case of this story.


Last but not least, there’s awesome art accompanying this issue and I purred like a happy (and somewhat bloodthirsty) kitten when I saw that the cover art is inspired from my own story.


I hope I intrigued people enough to make them check it out and (why not?) offer some thoughts on the story and the issue as a whole.

Hi! I am just checking in to see who is still here and active that I used to talk to... Idk if you remember me. You sent me a beautiful card from Greece once when I was a little girl! (:

Anyways, I just popped in to say hi. I don't really get on here much anymore (or really ever) but I do have Facebook now, and if you use that I would love to friend you on there so I can keep up with you!

I know it's been forever, and you probably don't really remember me, but I would love to chat with you and catch up and see how you've been!

Being a part of the community on here was such a big influence in my life when I was young, and really helped me get through some difficult teenage years, and I would really like to get back in touch and see how you're doing! (: Anyways, I have downloaded the LJ app on my phone, so if you message me here I will get your message!

Or you can find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/dorkilicious

I hope to hear from you soon! (:
