Nerd Church - Are There Words?

Are there words for what happened last week in Manchester?

Maybe a few: murder; heartbreak; pain; tragedy. But none of them sum it up.

So I'm going to leave you with the words of others:

The lyrics of Ariana Grande, and of the Oasis song Don't Look Back in Anger, which the people of Manchester chose to stand for the city.

'I know what I came to do
And that ain't gonna change
So go ahead and talk your talk
Cause I won't take the bait
I'm over here doing what I like
I'm over here working day and night
And if my real ain't real enough
I'm sorry for ya, bae

Let's find a light inside our universe now'

- Ariana Grande, Focus.

'Step outside, 'cause summertime's in bloom
Stand up beside the fireplace
Take that look from off your face
Cause you ain't ever gonna burn my heart out

And so, Sally can wait
She knows it's too late as she's walking on by
My soul slides away
But don't look back in anger
I heard you say'

- Oasis, Don't Look Back in Anger.

Micropoetry - Unseen Verse

I promised some of my micropoetry that's never been published before - even on Twitter.

So I've got you some. :)

These poems have been languishing in my notebook for far too long. It's time to let them fly into the world and be read by you, my dearest nerdlets (Me? Nervous? ...Maybe a little.)

(Fangirling notes: Drarry is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter.)

Nerd Church - A Tribute to the Father of the Nation

It's likely that, unless you're Welsh or have noticed the name on my Twitter feed over the last few days, you don't know the name Rhodri Morgan.

If you do, perhaps you think of a mop of white hair and a whirlwind of energy.

Or maybe you think of some of his famous one-liners, the things he said that make Boris Johnson look positively shy in comparison.

Rhodri Morgan was the second First Minister of Wales.

The First Minister leads the Welsh government. We have only ever had three: Alun Michael, Rhodri Morgan, and our current leader, Carwyn Jones.

He passed away on Wednesday (16th May,) at the age of 77.

Today I have Stucky for you (I know, I'm total Stucky trash,) but with a genderqueer/gender-fluid/NB Bucky Barnes!

This is also written by a genderqueer fic author - so we have #ownvoices as well!

(Fangirling notes:

Stucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes.

If you've read my fanfiction posts before, chances are you already know this!)
