mokie: An octopus offering free hugs (love boo)
Behold, it's St. Skeletor's Day! Not just the 'bitter singles' answer to Valentine's Day, but a day devoted to the destruction of love!
"If anyone is seen even holding hands on this unholy day, you're allowed to push them both in a puddle. Anyone who's had sex this calendar year gets put in solitary confinement. If there's someone you really hate you can send them an elaborate, expensive and anonymous card going into details of why you think they're such a meatus. But the real selling point is, if you're in a relationship that you're not happy about, on St Skeletor's Day you're allowed to just walk away from it, with no explanations, no repercussions, no reparations." (Richard Herring)
Those hexes are about to come in really handy.

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.
