mokie: A package of meat wishes you happy holidays (holiday of the day)
Lo, the end of Gothivale is upon us! A sad kelpy sway to mark the day! And a sad holiday to say goodbye...

On this day in 1891, Hawaii's only queen regnant took the throne. Not long after, America got twitchy and knocked her off it, partly because we wanted cheaper sugar, and partly because American businessmen were twitchy about having a woman in charge.

Nowadays white folks have conveniently forgotten that Hawaii was ever an independent kingdom, but every time we mention Hawaii in TV or movies, every time we think of it, it's tied to a tune composed by Queen Lili'uokalani.

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.
