Check out [community profile] dark_agenda's Racebending Revenge Ficathon -- [r]e-write one or more white characters in the fandom(s) of your choice as chromatic/non-white/PoC, in a story of at least 500 words, with some acknowledgment of how the racial difference would make a difference to the story being told -- posting is scheduled for July 2 and the whole thing's open to RPF. I'm certainly in (no, I never do learn, do I? *g*).

Yesterday I was kind of having a crisis of faith about the whole mailperson thing, because I was taking so long with the delivery and also I was really, really miserable for no really good reason--anyway. Today was fine and while I probably won't be continuing once uni starts up again (I won't have the kind of time required mid-day four-to-five days a week), I'm gonna keep doing it. Crisis averted!

What I will probably still be doing is try to get myself an "easy", stay-put job with either early or late hours because I need the money. That, I will keep doing over the semester. (If, uh, I get it in the first place. Y'know.)

The Asian Women Carnival is going into its second edition, this time hosted by [info]oyceter. The theme for this edition is Inter/intra/transnationality (or: "hyphenates and sourcelanders and diasporas and being a minority Asian in a majority Asian country and majority Asian countries and minority Asian countries and third culture kids and thoughts about being refugees, immigrants, expats, nth generation, FOBs* (* I use this as someone who is proud to be a FOB and dislikes any mockery of fobbishness. Also, if you aren't one, don't use it.), about generational gaps and cultural expectations and growing up in one place and then another and speaking one language at home and one outside and and and."), for which the deadline is June 1st.

You can still find the first edition, hosted by[ profile] ciderpress here.

Although I'll have you, internets, know that "here" I/we are Adjectival Dutch People, none of that "hyphenated" stuff. *g*

The first Asian Women Carnival is up, hosted and organized by [ profile] ciderpress.

I think the words gathered in the AWC should (be allowed to) speak for themselves, as should its authors, so I'll just point you in the direction of them. *g*
