siria: Lizzy from Pride and Prejudice, facing away from the camera (p&p - lizzy turn)

One of the news reports about the British referendum on Friday was accompanied by a snippet from Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" (as it's the Anthem of Europe). The Wee Niece's head snapped up, and she said, "That is bee-yoo-tee-ful music!" So I googled it to let her listen to more of it, and found this, and cried a little as we watched it. The EU undeniably has problems, undeniably is in need of reform, but without it we are all in a much more perilous state, politically, economically, and in terms of security. At its best, the European Project was looking at the wars which had brought such destruction to the continent and saying: let's be better than that. That was the kind of Europe I wanted the Wee Niece to grow up in. I wanted her to have the same chance as I had, to scrabble my way out of a rural backwater, to get to go to decent schools and experience other cultures and not feel hemmed in.

And now the worst kind of reactionary, insular nationalism, of xenophobia, of knee-jerk reductivism and ethnocentric nostalgia threatens all of it for everyone across Europe. The far right in several countries has been emboldened. There's been an immediate rise in overt racist incidents across England. This also threatens the stability and legal validity of the peace process in the North. (Sinn Féin seems to think this is a chance for reunification. Mmm, nope.) 2016 continues to be a shit show, and something tells me 2017 isn't going to be much better.

For some distraction, an AO3 meme )

Now to try to finish the conclusion of this conference paper, which has been eluding me for days.

A cornucopia of MomoKai

While Momo/Kaidoh is only my third favourite tenipuri pairing, after Inui/Kaidoh and Tezuka/Ryoma, they are not-so-secretly the most fun to write, even though they do not usually make my heart hurt like the other pairings do. But maybe that's because they just fit together so well there's not much need to hurt.

MomoKai SASO Prompt Fills


After I begged people to bait me with some MK prompts. :) Both on AO3, both very sappy.

Obligation
Momo/Kaidoh, Prince of Tennis, 1117 words, General Audiences
After the Kantou tournament, Momo feels he's owed.

Aloha
Momo/Kaidoh, Prince of Tennis, 819 words, Teen And Up Audiences
Future fic. Momo and Kaidoh go on holiday.


Rerun


Been thinking of this post I made back in 2008:

I can't stop thinking about Momo and Kaidoh and their Great Riverside and Doubles bonding in the Kantou finals and how lovely and intense it all is and then how a few episodes later, Inui is playing Yanagi and Momo and Kaidoh are together in the stands watching and Momo says, "So we're totally boyfriends now, right?" and Kaidoh says, "Even though I totally plan to have a lot of dirty sex with you, only Inui-senpai will ever have my love" and then Momo cries.

My Fabulous MomoKai Art



While I was writing Things That Go Bump back in 2012, I made some stick figure drawing of some of the scenes to help me think through the story. I found them the other day so here they are. Warning: the last drawing spoils the big reveal! !My arting has improved since that MomoKai doujinshi. But not by much.)
