mokie: A patriotic squirrel holding an American flag (politics lol)
Every day I think, "I should be writing about this," and immediately afterwards, "Where do I even start?"

Not for the kids or for posterity or because I think I'm some kind of pundit, but because at some point in the future, we're going to collectively come to, look back, and wonder what the hell just happened.

Not a hot take, just a note to future me, whispering, "I know, right?"

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.
