If you're a fan of Polychrome Heroics and you have kids, or your kids are fans of other superheroes, check out this awesome set of patterns for superhero dress-up.  Or supervillains or supernaries, if that's what your kids prefer.

See a list of works prompted and/or sponsored by [personal profile] librarygeek.  So far they're my Polychrome Heroics and An Army of One stuff.  I love seeing what my hobby-editors are doing.  I know some of you are following each other's selections.

Here, courtesy of the Open University, is a sample of Shakespeare in the original pronunciation with detailed attention to puns and other features that work in the original but not in the contemporary. 

Education wants to be free.  :D  I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of Shakespeare but I'd be more inclined to listen like this.  I had a couple of teachers who were and they were worth listening just because they had so much fun with it -- including things like this, reading the original language and pointing out subtleties.

I'm thrilled to announce that [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has launched her own crowdfunding project, Magpie Monday, to be held the second Monday of each month. Reply with prompts and get at least a page of prose privately, or a poem if you prefer. Signal boosts extend the length of your fill. Further perks are available too. The author currently has four original worlds active; you can prompt for any of those or something new. Go play!

GEEKGASM!!!

Also, bonus points for what I think is only the third useful pop-up I've ever seen: "Click here to download the song."

It's just that in this world, we don't usually think of them as superpowers, and don't usually use them for crimefighting. But here they are.

Check out WOLVES IN THE BEDROOM, Memoirs of a Wildlife Rehabilitator by James Orr.  I'm boosting a friend's project here, and of course, generally in favor of supporting wolves.

I found this awesome series of paintings by a blind painter.

One of my Torn World characters, Rai, is legally blind.  He can see colors, and vague shapes at point-blank range.  That's about it.  But he paints as a hobby, rather charming work.  Most of it is not this detailed.  A couple of the sample paintings are more his style, though -- the one of the person with umbrella under trees, and the last one of the sailboat.  Very stylized, almost abstract stuff but it still forms images.

Oh yeah.  That's a thing that happened.  New headcanon accepted.  :D

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer has written the story "Refilling the Cup" as a direct sequel to my poem "Shaken."  Aidan teaches Heidi a new coping skill.  Begin with Part 1.  This story has a donation button on the page, if you've been enjoying what [personal profile] dialecticdreamer writes and want to support it.  She just passed her one-year anniversary as a Dreamwidth blogger, too.  Yay!
