Blatantly grabbed from [personal profile] schneefink. The first line of my 20 latest fics!

incoherentish rambling )

In general, I tend to (especially in the last half of this year) have the initial sentence in the plusquamperfect and summarize past events with it and then either elaborate on said events or contrast with the present. Not all that much dialogue or action.

Fandom-wise, I am doing [community profile] space_swap  (which I also mod) and [community profile] jukebox_fest . I'm mostly found on the TGE IRC chat (here) nowadays.

IRL, my second year at Uni is wrapping up, and I'll spend next summer working at the Surface Sciences Lab, too! VACUUM CHAMBERS, guys. VACUUM CHAMBERS. That WHIR. I liked all the LARGE EQUIPMENT WHOO last year, and I am So Excite. The Prof (actual Professor, not Secondary Part-time Assistant Sub-Professor; this ain't America) is happy that I like the LARGE EQUIPMENT, since apparently some people find them intimidating? (My parents would give me a book to read and plonk me at their workplace after school. They are both industry researchers who do stuff related to paper machinery. LARGE EQUIPMENT that WHIRS is downright homey!)

I've also revisited my childhood with a library card and a subsequend pile of Yoko Tsuno comics. It's a long-running series by Roger Leloup, drawn in ligne claire, about the titular Yoko Tsuno, who is a Japanese electrical engineer living in Europe. The series is about her adventures over at least 4 continents and outer space, where she'll encounter a problem and solve it with empathy and the Power of Friendship. Her adventures are technology-heavy, and she picks up (female) friends wherever she goes. (There are also some dudes following her around, but they're pretty much incidental.)
