Just went and bought my membership, yay!

I haven't been to a con in ages, let alone a WorldCon, but this one is local to me and a bunch of people I know are coming, so I figured I had no excuse for not going.

Yuletide noms!

They close tomorrow so hurry and get your nominations in!

Mine are:

Witcher: Geralt, Emhyr, Ciri, Dandelion (duh)

Dragonriders of Pern: Menolly, Robinton (I totally want Menolly/Robinton NOT SORRY)

Dune (the book): Paul, Jessica, Stilgar, Feyd -- I don't know exactly what I want here, I think I want some outsider POV on Paul maybe?

My runners-up were:

Rome: Pullo, Vorenus, maybe Octavian -- man, I would love a story that undid what the show did to Octavian in S2 so much

Gladiator: Maximus, Commodus

Brimstone: Ezekiel, The Devil

Dungeons and Dragons Cartoon: Eric, Hank, Sheila, Venger

Battle of the Planets: Mark, Jason

and my perennial hope-springs-eternal Dracula: the Series: Lucard (hope doesn't really spring very far lol)

I am totally not mentioning these here in hopes that someone has a spare nom they wouldn't mind using on one of these. ;)

I had been meaning to get this one up for a long time, and I finally did tonight.


And beeej's remix is here:

(I hope she gets it up at AO3 so it isn't lost forever. Maybe a few kind words from the rest of us....?)

More fun in Alaska

Yesterday I went to the Chena Hot Springs Resort, which is known for, duh, its hot springs. But first I visited its ice museum, which was very cool (in both senses of the word). It had an ice bar where you can drink an appletini out of an ice glass, how cool is that? Then I went and soaked in the outdoor hot spring, which has got to be one of the most relaxing things I've ever done. I considered signing up for a massage while I was there, but decided that if I got any more relaxed I wouldn't be able to drive back, so I just had dinner at their (very nice) restaurant and headed back to Fairbanks.

Today I was signed up for a dog-mushing ride in an ATV (all-terrain vehicle), but it got cancelled because the weather was too warm. But the owner said hey, feel free to come by and hang out for a bit and meet the dogs, so that's what I did. I ended up hanging out for over an hour, because every single one of the dogs wanted to be petted, and how could I possibly say no? Will try for a ride again next Saturday, assuming the weather gets cooler.
