Nerd Church - A Tribute to the Father of the Nation

It's likely that, unless you're Welsh or have noticed the name on my Twitter feed over the last few days, you don't know the name Rhodri Morgan.

If you do, perhaps you think of a mop of white hair and a whirlwind of energy.

Or maybe you think of some of his famous one-liners, the things he said that make Boris Johnson look positively shy in comparison.

Rhodri Morgan was the second First Minister of Wales.

The First Minister leads the Welsh government. We have only ever had three: Alun Michael, Rhodri Morgan, and our current leader, Carwyn Jones.

He passed away on Wednesday (16th May,) at the age of 77.

Today I have Stucky for you (I know, I'm total Stucky trash,) but with a genderqueer/gender-fluid/NB Bucky Barnes!

This is also written by a genderqueer fic author - so we have #ownvoices as well!

(Fangirling notes:

Stucky is a romantic and/or sexual relationship between Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes.

If you've read my fanfiction posts before, chances are you already know this!)

Nerd Church - Mental Health 101

(Warning: This post discusses mental health problems and stigma.)

Mental Health Awareness Week is 8-14th May in the UK.

Let's take things back to the basics.

To people who have never had mental health problems, it can be all too easy to believe misconceptions.

The worst of these are stigmatising:

The ideas that people with mental health problems are weak, faking it, wanting the attention, whiners etc., as well as that people with mental health problems are inherently dangerous, or to blame for their conditions.

Friday Fics Fix - Random and Fun!

Who feels like some random-a** funniness? (I do! I do!) (Lol.)

So I figure there's nothing wrong with some pure randomness every now and then. It's quite refreshing, given the world we currently live in... (Me? Cynical? Pshaw! Pshaw I say!)
