Spain - April 1 - last touring day

April 1 – We drove through La Mancha territory, saw a number of windmills from the road, then went to Toledo. First stop was a ‘factory’ where we looked at steel swords, etc. but I didn’t buy anything. The swords were fairly priced, though. After that, we went to the Toledo Cathedral which was huge, with lots of gold in the altar area but it seemed rather cavernous and dark in other areas. The Church of Santa Tome with its El Greco painting was interesting in the artwork, but seemed ordinary otherwise. We also went to a synagogue with Moorish architecture which was very interesting. I’d been to all of them before the last time I was in Spain but it was good to revisit. After that, we walked down to the Roman bridge and then drove to Madrid.

And then the next day, home.

March 31 – An early start, we arrived in Granada about 11:30 AM, then immediately went to the Alhambra. It was as beautiful as ever, and this time, the lion fountain was all in sunlight so I got some great shots. After that, we went over to Generalife gardens. Some were having a hard time walking around and it is a bit of walking but the sunlight was gorgeous and it was a perfect temperature and day.

After going back to the hotel for a little while, we were off to see the Carthusian Monastery, started in 1516 and finished nearly 300 years later. Alas I wasn’t able to take photos inside, then next was to the Royal Chapel where Isabella and Ferdinand were buried (1505-1521) but again I couldn’t take pictures inside. Sigh. Then we went off to dinner which was lovely.

genex author letter

Super excited about this exchange (as I am about them all, really). It isn't very often that there are opportunities for gen fic in this manner.

So, dear author, here are some things you should know generally, and then under the cut are some fandom-specific thoughts.

I like world-building, stories that take place in unexpected places or that include some detail about surroundings. I like character-driven stories, ones that include backstory or off-screen speculation and events. I'm fond of secondary and minor characters, their perspectives on the bigger events. I like main characters, too, and getting different viewpoints from them. Angst is my cup of tea, though not sexual violence of any kind.   Non-canonical character death is okay if it furthers your story.  Seeing as how this is a gen exchange, and some of my requests are more traditionally shippy, I need to clarify that I really enjoy friendship stories or stories that deal with non-romantic aspects of a relationship that may BE romantic later. Team-building is awesome, partnerships between people who aren't very connected in canon or have very little screentime otherwise.

Okay, on to the fandoms.

Super Smashing Birthdays

Happy a-few-minutes-early-in-my-time-zone birthday to me! :)

And also happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] 13catswaltz, who has the same birthday as me! :)


And also also to Luigi - because Mario Bros. was released in Japan on July 14, 1983; my negative tenth birthday. ;)



Hey, there's an idea for a totally nerdy survey...

This page has a table (several paragraphs down from the beginning of that section...) that lists the dates every* Super Smash Bros. character debuted (because in SSB4, the order you fight them in All-Star Mode is based on that).

Use that to figure out your answers to these questions:

1) Which SSB character(s), if any, debuted on your birthday in any year?
Luigi

2) Which SSB character(s) debuted closest to the date you were born?
Meta Knight (debuted March 23, 1993 - the date closest to July 14, 1993 in that list).

3) Which SSB character(s) debuted closest to the date you created your LiveJournal/DreamWidth/some-other-journal-site account? (If you have/had multiple journals, you may answer this separately for all of them, some of them, or just one. Whichever you prefer.)
My LJ was created on August 19, 2007 - the character whose debut was closest to that is Rosalina (November 1, 2007).
My DW was created on May 13, 2017, long after the debut of the newest character (Corrin, on June 25, 2015).

:)



*Except Miis, alternate characters (the Koopalings and Alph), and characters from Melee and Brawl who aren't in SSB4. I went ahead and looked up the relevant dates in case you want to include them )
