It snowed here today.  Also it's much colder.

There are birds everywhere.  :D  Big flock of mourning doves and some sparrows around the fly-through feeder.  Huge flock of sparrows and two male cardinals around the hopper feeder.  Various birds fluttering around the suet cage.  \o/

While researching for poetry today, I found this amazing page that explains how to measure trauma. It gives a bunch of scales to indicate how much or how long things affected a trauma survivor.  It covers the event, internal experience, and support.  Some factors are static, while others could change over time.  If you don't know why you (or someone else) feel terrible about something, this might help.

EDIT: A later, expanded version is here.

Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so

"This, You Protect" by Owlet
Meeting Captain America on the Helicarrier jolts the Asset back into being Bucky Barnes. Sort of. This story is dark and funny by turns -- often in the same scene -- and gives a wonderful look at how Steve and Bucky deal with their trauma.

"The Burdens We Long to Carry" by Arcapelago
Charles and Erik struggle to work out their differences by sharing their superpowers.  It's a favorite example of compromise and making amends.

"Practical Angora Goat Raising" by Lavvyan
John is sexual; Sherlock is asexual; they find their common ground. This is one of my all-time favorite acefics.
