Monkey King Faerie Queen, by Zen Cho.

It's been an unsettling week.

Celebrity-wise, the deaths of David Bowie and then Alan Rickman. Especially Alan Rickman. There I was, watching Sense and Sensibility for Emma Thompson and trying not to be too ticked off at Marianne for whining when all of a sudden Colonel Brandon came on the scene and whoa, couldn't take my eyes off him. Then I was ticked off at Marianne for an entirely different reason. One of the most visceral reactions I've ever had to a movie character. Lovely to see him as Snape - one of the main reasons to catch the Harry Potter movies, really.

It's too soon. Dammit.

And then not on the same scale of tragedy but adding to one's bewilderment at the insanity in the world, terrorists in Jakarta.

Lastly, the expected-but-nice-to-have: Tsai Ing-wen elected Taiwan's first female president

I'm starting to look upon 2016 with extreme suspicion.
