The acclaimed _Goblin Emperor_ is on sale for 1.99! The link below includes lots & lots of sites & formats.

https://us.macmillan.com/books/9781429946407

This book is so good, I read it twice in the same year. Compelling world-building, & one of the kindest main characters ever. *insert incoherent, euphoric squee-ing here*

Well, that takes care of reading matter for my next flight.

*heads off to share the love*

Orbis: The Stanford Geospatial Network Model of the Roman World. Works best with Chrome or Safari browsers. Calculate how long, and how expensive, any journey is throughout the Roman Empire. You can change such factors as season and mode of travel.

(*Trying not to squee too loudly.*)

(*But I once spent days trying to calculate some characters' travel time for an ancient world AU. I calculated that journey in fifteen seconds flat with this tool.*)

Holidays occurring for some this weekend; is that influencing your cleaning plans? What are your goals, if any? Comment and we'll cheer each other along!

I want to:

- wash the dishes
- clean the bathroom
- organize and put away yarn and supplies from recent projects

Along with setting goals, how are you going to break up your tasks and/or make them more do-able?

I will listen to an audiobook while cleaning, and plan to spread out my tasks over the day today, with time for some tv-watching and catching up on emails.

Title: the aftermath of war 1/ fanfic.net//ao3 // dw
Rating: PG-13
Pairing(s)/Characters: Narcissa Black / Lucius Malfoy, Bill Weasley, Charlie Weasley, Percy Weasley, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Draco Malfoy
Word Count/ Art Medium: 2958
Warnings (if any): none, unless you count an angry young Bill.

Disclaimer: I own nothing and make no monitory profit. All I have are my OCs and my ideas and a lot of effort. JK's world is just a sandpit I make castles in.

Summary: "Weasleys!"

"Children, Lucius. Imagine if something happened to us? Custody of Draco would automatically go to Andromeda and that Muggleborn husband of hers. Ed or Ted or something."

A strange sound erupts from his throat and his eyes bulge but Narcissa knows that she has his attention. He pours more red wine into his wine glass and not as much into his wife's showing his growing anxiety over the matter.

"Children are not responsible for their parent's actions. They need a home, my love, and I won't have anyone thinking we won't give them one. Merlin, I won't leave them on the street regardless! We always wanted more."

"One!", Lucius snaps, "Perhaps two more. But seven. Just because we have space does not mean that we can cope."
