V here. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works. (I swear I didn't know about V For Vendetta when I started this.)

I'm currently inhabiting space, time and various other dimensions in Shanghai. :dummy:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

Prose


Have one of my favourites - I know I've talked about it before, but c'mon, I was going to have to recommend it sooner or later anyway - Diverse Energies, a science fiction anthology of short stories, edited by Tobias S. Buckell and Joe Monti, with a dystopian theme running through all of the stories. It's incredibly wonderful. The excerpt below is from one of my personal favourites, A Pocket Full of Dharma by Paolo Bacigalupi.
They watched him climb by with grave eyes, but they made no move to stop him. Who were they to care if his fingers slipped and he fell to the infinitely distant pavement? He passed them and continued his descent.

When he looked up again, seeking the isolated window from which he had issued, it was gone. Lost in the thickness of the chill mist. He guessed the man and woman would not follow. That they would have more pressing concerns that to find a lone beggar boy with a useless datacube somewhere in the drizzling streets of Chengdu. He smiled to himself. They would pack and go home to their foreign country and leave him to remain in Chengdu. Beggars always remained.

poem


I'm cheating here and recommending an entire collection - All Good Slides Are Slippery is a poetry portfolio of poems by various poets, collected by Lemony Snicket (or Daniel Handler) for children to read. I don't know if it's as diverse as I'm trying to make all of my recommendations be, but it's lovely, and you can find all the - really beautiful - poems at the link, at the Poetry Foundation. The following is the first poem in the collection; called Knocks on the door by Maram al-Massri, translated from the Arabic into English by Khaled Mattawa.
    Knocks on the door.
    Who?
    I sweep the dust of my loneliness
    under the rug.
    I arrange a smile
    and open.


  • Listening to: Between Two Points (ft. Swan) by the Glitch Mob.
  • Reading: Finding Forgotten Cities by Nayanjot Lahiri.
  • Watching: Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)

I missed you! T_T

Life had been cruel to me, thus my ridiculously long absence from dA.
