dorktastic fangirl squee!

Yesterday for some reason Scalzi was listing his 5 favourite John Cusack teen movies and I volunteered that mine was The Journey of Natty Gann.

Meredith Salenger, the actress who played Natty, responded with an “Awesome!” and I am now totally full of dorktastic fangirl squee. OMG. #dorktastic

Seriously, that movie could be the place my great love of unrequited/impossible love stories comes from. Even now I think Natty and Harry’s story was utterly heartbreaking in the best angstful way possible, and of course in my head I wrote MILLIONS of stories about how they find each other again but no I am absolutely not looking for fanfic of that because if it wasn’t perfectly done I would hate it forever so no. o.o

But I do still love the movie, even a lifetime later, and I’m all dorky and happy now. #beams

Magic & Manners: Chapter Five

My gift to you this Valentine’s Day is chapter five of MAGIC & MANNERS!

(Start here if you haven’t been reading along!)

And, okay, folks, I’m doin’ it! I’m crowdfunding this baby! If you’ve enjoyed MAGIC & MANNERS thus far, visit my Patreon page to support its continuation!

Patreon’s not like Kickstarter: it’s for small projects rather than big ones, and relies on small, regular donations instead of one larger one. So you might decide to donate $1 per chapter, and if 250 people decide to donate $1/chapter, then every week a new chapter will be posted.

There are milestone goals set up for what will happen when we reach $500/chapter and up (editing! I’ve got the editor lined up already! Formatting! Cover art!), and there’s something special in the works if we hit an outrageous $1250 or more per chapter, so let’s make it go! :)
