[Content Note: Homophobia, Homelessness]
I'm having a touch of a family emergency on my end; folks who follow the Shakesville Open Threads and Slacktiverse Posts have already pieced together the situation more than I have time to go into now, but the short version is that my teenage lesbian niece is essentially homeless right now and I'm going to be AFK periodically through the rest of the week while we try to grapple with this. Which means that direct questions, comments, concerns, and emails will stew in my inbox until I have a chance to dig myself back out of the hole.
Please continue to comment as usual (getting the comments on my phone makes me happy) and thank you to everyone who embuddied me on NaNo -- I'll accept your friend requests just as soon as I can because ZOMG FRIENDS.
Religious prayers and/or secular happy thoughts on behalf of my niece at this time -- and for her-mother-my-sister, because the situation is apparently a lot more complicated than I originally realized -- are very welcome on ya'll's end.
