mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday of the day)
Perfect timing for this, the second day of Gothivale! Because of course penguins are goth.

#1. They're monochrome...

#2. ...with the occasional bit of outlandish and colorful head plumage.

#3. They live in the only place on Earth colder than the human soul...

#4. ...and which is as far from the hell that is society as a portly little sea bird can get.

#5. As flightless aquatic birds, zoos frequently try to make them bird-up with the other avians or else get aquatic with the fish already. No acceptance of their unique subculture.

#6. Speaking of birds, you think they don't see how the bastards look at them? Fuck them and their functional wings. Conformists.

#7. Have you seen them dance? They wobble. GOTH.

To make sure I am thoroughly aware of penguins, I will be watching Batman Returns, which combines Tim Burton, the Penguin, a latex cat-suit, and lots of penguins with candy-striped rockets strapped to their backs. I am aware as fuck of armed penguins.

About dream/reading tags

y-* tags categorize dreams.

For types: beyond the obvious, there are dreamlets (very short dreams), stubs (fragment/outline of a partially-lost dream), gnatter (residual impression of a lost dream).

For characters: there are roles (characters fitting an archetype), symbols (characters as symbols), and sigils (recurring figures with a significance bigger than a single dream's role/symbolism).

x-* tags categorize books.

Material is categorized primarily by structure, style and setting. If searching for a particular genre, look for the defining features of that genre, e.g. x-form:nonfic:bio, x-style:horror, x-setting:dystopian.
