Judging, LJ layouts on DW, and Dragon Age3 (omg)

I said it on Twitter but I want to say it again: it's so, so sad about Iain M. Banks and he will be greatly missed. It seems to have come a lot quicker than anyone thought. And he'd been talking about trying chemo, too. We've lost an incredible author. May he pilot spaceships forevermore.

After the Other Worlds workshop with the Year 10 students in January, the school ran a short story competition to the same theme and I was asked to judge the stories. I read through the shortlisted entries over the weekend and picked my top 4, but decided to give a little feedback on all of the stories because they all had potential. It was quite fun being a judge, but goodness, it was difficult selecting my favourites.

For ages I'd been hoping to recreate my LJ layout on my Dreamwidth mirror journal, to no avail. But recently I found this brilliant tutorial on the community Starlit: Adding LJ Layout to DW (All Users). In a few short steps, it shows you how to create theme layers, and import the LJ theme layers for S2 styles like Flexible Squares, Smooth Sailing, Mixit and Nebula. I've now got my skeletal moose look on DW and it feels a lot more like a home. :)

Dragon Age: Inquisition Official Trailer - released at the E3 2013 EA Conference. Should be out in autumn 2014, omg omg. Morrigan! Words cannot express how excited I am for this. kgsa;hg;ahj!

I was so bummed to hear the news about Banks. You're right; the world has lost an incredible author.

I love your layout, so I'm glad to see you figured out how to move it over to DW. Skeletal moose FTW! ♥

It came so much quicker than thought. Very, very sad. :(

There's a (skeletal) moose loose about my blog! ♥
