#introductions Antonius M. here. I write the queer, fantastical and traumatised, all rooted in Swedish (and occasionally Norwegian, when it intersects) folklore and history.
Currently working on a tale with a woman who is a beacon to ghosts, but who needs to deal with her own trauma to be able to help others
It is proven! I am melindrea on Keybase: https://keybase.io/melindrea/sigchain#310317268e8f6c62eeb1721bc8abbeedae0b3465f0b16f9b2c21910e9740dfbd0f
I'll be working on a supernatural mindfuck of a thriller this july!
MC rents a cabin to get their footing back after their psychotic break.
Funny how old cabins have all these weird noises like tapping on windows, scraping against walls, rattling doors, blood red roses and vines that grow thicker by the night. #amwriting
Hey all ... so, I need help with rent this coming month. If you have any ability to help, I would appreciate it a lot. The linked tweet has my links in it. https://twitter.com/melindrea/status/1120124062485839872
I'll share this here as well ... If you have the ability to help me, I'm going to be very low on funds this coming month, as my paycheck is a fourth of what it should be if I'd been able to work fulltime, meaning I don't have enough for even rent.
My sixth granny square is of Swedish design! https://melindreamakes.art/2019/01/06/sippa-granny-square/ #amcrafting #melindreacrafts #crochet
#amwriting In Scandinavia, long before the tribes joined as nations, when they shared a common language, a war raging between Gods bring a decision that echoes into modern days.
In concern that Oden and the Aesir would destroy the magic of the runes, Freja chose 24 of her most faithful servants, gifting each of them a single rune to carry in their hearts.
The rune gives power, and either at death or at times of great need finds a new host.
So here's my fifth square, a starburst granny square https://melindreamakes.art/2019/01/05/5-out-of-365-starburst-granny-square/ #melindreacrafts #amcrafting #crochet #grannysquares
here's the video for the pattern, btw. Trust me, you'll need to watch it several times.
Me: I should make a simpler square tomorrow
Also me: ooh, this rose square with double treble crochets, worked in fingering yarn, looks good! #amcrafting
I feel weird asking for financial support for my bit of music-making, writing and writing about music. On the other hand, we're still in a bit of a financial pinch - no thanks to the still ongoing marriage recognition saga (thus no sposal tax benefits) and me having had a bad year businesswise in 2018. And I feel much better about asking for a tip for my creations than just straight up asking for money.
So I'm trying this ko-fi thing: http://ko-fi.com/modern_dragon
Woohoo, second granny square done! #amcrafting #melindreacrafts https://melindreamakes.art/2019/01/02/2-out-of-256-vintage-granny-square/
This is the journal of the bunny with the hardest life.
It has been a long seven years and I have been treated awfully.
The pettings are NOT endless, for starters.
The wait for food involves countless hours in between, leaving only hay, though tasty, for sustenance.
Every time I think I have escaped physical mistreatment I am flipped over & my claws are snipped to harmless nubs!
Even now, the banana treat is minutes late... I'll starve at this rate!
Programming polyglot with a soft spot for Python, PHP, Linux and automation. Also, I write Viking & Folklore fiction.
