 [personal profile] technoshaman reports that it is possible to vote in LiveJournal polls using the Open ID function.  \o/  So you-all can do that now, and I won't have to hand-count as many backchannel votes on polls.  I knew you could comment that way, but few people bother, and it's not as big a deal.

In related news, the free epic poll is open if you wish to vote.
ysabetwordsmith: Damask smiling over their shoulder (polychrome)
This poem is spillover from the January 3, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] lone_cat and discussion with other characters regarding Turq and Mr. Dipper. It also fills the "betrayal" square in my 1-1-17 card for the Dark Fantasy Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains intense material. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features sudden and (necessarily) fairly rough waking of Ansel by Turq, the first time Turq comes upstairs without direct encouragement, Turq's considerable stress over being indoors at all, reporting a major incident with Mr. Dipper and some kids who probably don't want to be with him, faginy, asking for help and getting it, but still being panicky, references to Turq backsliding after meeting his family, Turq's stumbling path back to everyday society, volunteering for hazardous activities, preliminary plans for a police raid on Mr. Dipper's place, Turq's car issues, betrayal, ethical dilemmas, feeling broken, trust issues, and other difficulties. On the whole, though, interactions between Turq and Ansel are positive. If these are touchy topics for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward. This is a major plot point, so skipping it would leave a huge gap.
