Feed me Seymour! :) Poor characters. While they wait should they have cold showers and ice compresses? ;)

I think Linda just freezes them. Thought there have been a couple times where I swear I could hear the characters of some forgotten fic speaking to me, so her ways aren’t fool proof. Yet. But worry not, they will get their completion soon enough.

Have you ever wondered where books come from?

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:

image

See how they happily line up to put them on:

image

See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.

image

And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:

So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.

The Codex Gigas 
The Codex Gigas (or ‘Giant Book”) is also known as “The Devil’s Bible.” A curious illustration of Lucifer gives the tome its nickname.
The 13th-century manuscript is thought to have been created solely by a Herman the Recluse, a monk of the Benedictine monastery of Podlažice near Chrudim in Czech Republic. The calligraphy style is amazingly uniform throughout, believed to have taken 25 to 30 years  of work. There are no notable mistakes or omissions.  Pigment analysis revealed the ink to be consistent throughout. The book is enormous - it  measures 36.2” tall, 19.3” wide, and 8.6” thick; it weighs approximately 165 pounds. There are 310 vellum  leaves (620 pages).  The leaves are bound in a wooden folder covered with leather and ornate metal.
The manuscript is elaborately illuminated in red, blue, yellow, green and gold.  The entire document is written in Latin, and also contains Hebrew, Greek, and Slavic Cyrillic and Glagolitic alphabets. The first part of the text includes the Vulgate version of the Bible.  Between the Old and New Testaments are Josephus' Antiquities of the Jews and De bello iudaico, as well as Isidore of Seville's encyclopedia Etymologiae and medical works of Hippocrates, Theophilus, Philaretus, and Constantinus.  Following a blank page, the New Testament commences.
Beginning the second part is a depiction of the devil.  Directly opposite is a full picture of the kingdom of heaven, juxtaposing the “good versus evil.”  The second half, following the picture of the devil, is Cosmas of Prague's Chronicle of Bohemia.  A list of brothers in the Podlažice monastery and a calendar with necrologium, magic formulae and other local records round out the codex.  Record entries end in the year 1229CE.
In 1648 at the end of the Thirty Years’ War, the Swedish army invaded Prague and the Codex was stolen as plunder.  It is now held at the National Library of Sweden in Stockholm.  For more information, check out this short National Geographic documentary and/or flip through this digital copy.

Welcome new Followers!

Welcome to…whatever this is. My blog. I rebaggle things. I also write sometimes. When Linda lets me. I also store writing stuff.

Anyway, don’t be shy. Feel free to talk to me at any time. Just know that I can be awkward and it can take a little while for me to unshy myself. Shut up. Unshying is a thing, okay?

What I am trying to say is that I adore all of you and I am watching what you rebaggle. Wait. That makes it sound like I am watching you. In a creepy stalker type of way. I’m not. I just mean I notice you and will/have gain(ed) an affection for you. Now I sound like a grandma. 

Okay. Let’s try this again. Hello. Don’t be shy. Talk, or don’t. It’s completely up to you. But I like talking to people. Most of the time. 

Shit. 

This isn’t going well.

WELCOME!

Great. Now I want Doritos and mushrooms! Sauteed ones that have been cooked with onions. Mmmm…

Muses are fickle creatures. Especially the ones responsible for smut.

I am lighting a candle to the smut gods to see if that works. I am almost to the point of yelling at these characters “Just put your hand down her pants already!” and “For gods sake you are turned on. ACT LIKE IT.” And then I get to explain to myself, in third person, that I’m not crazy because I am talking to characters in my head and who are not real….They’re not real, right?

2nd September, 2014

lostdaemon said: "Uhg. I just. want. to. finish. this. part. I am so close!" That’s how the characters feel about that elusive smut too. ;)

Ya know, as I was writing that, I had a feeling that it would become troll food. And, well, we cant let the troll die. Linda would never forgive me. I am trying to get them there! I swear! Maybe today will be the day.

1st September, 2014

After having my time absconded for several hours and thus souring my mood and causing me to have to get back into the mood of writing, I have found that I still hadn’t written the smuttish part. It has been so long since I have written anything close to smut.

Uhg. I just. want. to. finish. this. part. I am so close!

I told you not to get your hopes up. Still going to try to get as much done tonight as I can, though.
