Matching Update

UPDATE: We have heard back from all three participants without recipients! We are pleased to say that all three are now matchable.

Two of the three unmatchable participants are now matchable! \o/ 

However, we're still waiting to hear back from AO3 user p_______.  Unfortunately, since the whole assignments process can't proceed until we have everyone matchable, we're going to have to put a 24 hour time limit (from now) on receiving a response, after which very sadly we'd have to remove the sign up.

If you do have a message from us, please respond.

On fannish things:



  1. my recipient may hate this story as much as I don’t love it, but I am going to finish it, so help me

  2. I’m going to have to write Maria + her gen relationships in most situations, because I actually want to write tielan some Maria Hill, but every time MCU gets me even slightly interested in Steve, they then go and ruin it. I’m never going to love his character, so I’m going to accept that and resolve to write more gen. I do like gen. I just wanted to write shipfic. 🙁


On conlang things:



  1. I updated my consonant phonology table: basically does a much better job with the clicks

  2. I did other work in a notebook that hasn’t been digitalized yet


On real life:



  1. We’re moving in a week. I’m not ready. :screams:

we conquered cities

we stomped our feet

danced our war

to every beat

of our twin hearts

and no retreat

cry, my love

the taste is sweet

I really need to get my exchange fic written. Odds are not good.


Wrote a poem:


we are tired

of the heavy places,

the deep tirades,

required graces,

every word

you ever spoke

from the day

my eyes awoke




Conlanging


I am hopelessly not up to the challenges, but I did do some work today. First, a word:


akuint • [ a.kui̯nt ] • 1. to sing, 2. to chant (a prayer or traditional song, particularly in a religious or formal ceremony), 3. to appease one more powerful with words, prayer, or song — verb


Then also, I figured out that Akachenti’s tendency to promote proximate, animate persons up a level may have come from originally have a proximate/distal distinction in second and third person pronouns and the agreement markers having merged. I’m not sure yet, but it seems more plausible than just willy nilly deciding that proximate third persons are really second persons, etc.

Today, I remind myself

there is always cause to give thanks:

breath is in my lungs,

and I am alive to praise

the God who makes my heart

beat and gives me song

to carry me through the night

and days that are too long.
