Moving: Makeshift Bonus Bondfire?

Friday April 20, 2018 at 2:28 PM

My family is moving! 

Buuuuut we don't know where. 

We're figuring out options, what's important to us, etc. (more on that inside)

I've only moved once, from West Texas to North Texas, and I did it with family. 

I have only been to FOUR other states. And only two for longer than a day. 

I am a sheltered hillbilly, friends!! ;) 

So, sell me or disuade me on where you live/have lived. 


1. Where do you live? Do you like it? Why? 

2. What are the best/worst things about where you live?

3. Do you want to move? 

4. If you could live anywhere, where would it be? Why? 

5. What are your experiences with moving? Are you adventurous, or do you stick close to what you know? 

6. Of all the places you've lived, which is your favorite? 

7. What are your "deal-breakers" when you consider moving? (To a new city, state, or even just a new home across town!)

Fic Diving 4/18/18

Each week I will brave the treacherous waters of Fan Fiction for buried treasure!


The Weight of a Crown by Isabelle Sumner
Two sisters stand on the brink of destruction, their conflict threatening the end of a country. And one man and his woman stand in the middle, weighed down by love and duty. When all is said and done, when the scores are finally settled, who will come out the victor and who will fall from grace? (AU no vampirism. Edward X Bella. Trilogy Part 3, final part) 

I've been (not so patiently) waiting for this final part of the trilogy!

derivation by cupcakeriot 
(noun) derivation. the obtaining of something from a source or origin. "All it takes is a touch," Bella says - and that is how she reveals that there is more to her than meets the eye. Little did she realize that she also had a derivative, one that she could scarcely predict.

Dark Thing, Make a Myth of Yourself by bicyclesarecool
"I feel her before I see her, the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in attention. When I shut my locker, she's parting the crowd like the red sea. Bella Swan is looking right at me, a smirk poised on her dark lips and something fierce in her dark eyes. There's something about her, something otherworldly. A storm is coming and I feel like i'm about to be caught in it."

Bondfire April 17

Tuesday April 17, 2018 at 5:01 PM

Hi Campers! 

Sorry for the lack of Bondfires for the last few weeks!  Between Spring Break and some unexpected sad news x 2, it was hard to get time to do much posting.

Earlier today I went to this great meeting at my kids' middle school that focused on suicide prevention and also social media.  Their school is amazing and the teachers/staff care so much that I feel lucky to have my girls there.  Afterward, one of my friends mentioned that she heard my daughter took a 'mental health' day.  (A while back, not today. She did, but I had initially thought she was physicially sick. It ended up being a good break for her.)  So my question for you is:

1) Do you ever take a mental health day?  (either intentionally or not)  What do you do to get back on track?

2) I've been re-reading one of my favorite go-to books, Where She Went by Gayle Forman.  There is a specific scene that I've read dozens of times. What is one of your favorite scenes in a novel?  Why do you think you keep going back to it?

3) Mrs. Cherry Bomb and I were talking about nostalgia and re-reading books from our childhood.  What's one of your favorite reads as a child that still holds up today?

4) Random bonding moments: The other day I bonded with one of my patients' parents over a tattoo she had of a band we both like. 

5) Random Ask-An-Expert/Ask-A-Camper Question: Choose a question that you want to post to the forest regarding advice about something.  I have a specific reason I'm asking but I'll put my inside the CF.  :D


ETA: EVERYONE is welcome in the bondfire.  As always, feel free to answer all the questions or just one or two.

Time for Review

Friday April 13, 2018 at 4:41 PM


I'll probably be escorted out of the forest

Friday April 13, 2018 at 3:27 PM quicky as I escorted myself back in, for spamming ACOMAF and it's wonderfulness.  

More reasons to read the series, as if Rhys wasn't enough - the secondary cast of characters, introduced in book 2, are amazing all on their own.  

There's Cassian, the War General.  Think Emmett with wings, brawn AND brains.  And snark.  Lot's of wonderful snark.  If "Nestian" doesn't happen in the first spin-off book, I'm going to riot. (Even though Nesta is a cranky old b*tch - think Rosalie). 


And Azriel.  Sigh.  I just love the Shadowsinger.  He's a little bit like Jasper.  Only, a broodier, more-visibly-scarred Jasper with an unrequited love for his "Alice," going on 500 years now.  


And The Morrigan.  She's loyal and awesome.  And she's also .... well, I don't want to spoil book 3, but let's just say "Yay" for diversity.  


And I already mentioned Rhys, right?  Because, seriously, there can't be anything as "too much" Rhys.  And no one writes wickedly, delightful, sexy banter like SJM.  NO ONE.  OK, maybe a couple of our really awesome Twific authors from back in the day.  But no one else. (This is not a swipe at any current Twific authors, I just haven't read any twific in about 2 or 3 years). 




OK, that is my very necessary PSA for the day.  I'll shut up ... for now.  


*Um, er, is it still free for all Fridays?  After I unceremoniously flounced the entire fandom - mostly to finish grad school and work towards independent licensure, and I honestly can't 100% recall the other reasons - I sort of forgot the posting rules.
