I think my new answer for when someone asks me why I am in a wheelchair is, “Retired mermaid.”

"Accepting rebuke, he relapsed into silence, while she studied his half-averted face. Considered generally, as a facade, it was by this time tolerably familiar to her, but now she saw details, magnified as it were by some glass in her own mind. The flat setting and fine scroll-work of the ear, and the height of the skull above it. The glitter of close-cropped hair where the neck-muscles lifted to meet the head. A minute sickle-shaped scar on the left temple. The faint laughter-lines at the corner of the eye and the droop of the lid at its outer end. The gleam of gold down on the cheekbone. The wide spring of the nostril. An almost imperceptible beading of sweat on the upper lip and a tiny muscle that twitched the sensitive corner of the mouth, the slight sun-reddening of the fair skin and its sudden whiteness below the base of the throat The little hollow above the points of the collarbone.
He looked up; and she was instantly scarlet, as though she had been dipped in boiling water. Through the confusion of her darkened eyes and drumming ears some enormous bulk seemed to stoop over her. Then the mist cleared. His eyes were riveted upon the manuscript again, but he breathed as though he had been running."

Yay! Meanwhile, Rinko Kikuchi is a main in my current WIP, and I’m not even trying to hide it either. ^___^

CROSSOVER TIME!

Oh, wait, we should probably finish our books first.

needstosortoutpriorities mentioned the Trek connection with our new kitten’s name. I did recall that, definitely, when I agreed with my oldest son (who suggested it) that Pike was a good name. Although my son is totally non-geeky, so he was thinking of the fish, and I am way too geeky so my first thought was that it could be short for Steerpike.

(Hey plenilune, have you read the Gormenghast books? If not, I think you should get on that.)

Anyway, today I was feeling a bit guilty for naming the kitten after such a ruthless character, even if the “Steer-” part of the name exists only in my head. But a few minutes ago he hooked my lower lip with a claw while batting at my necklace, so I don’t feel so bad anymore.
