I'll finish the fortnight of "All the Perverse Angels"—link in my profile, or Google, if you'd like a copy—with a thread of all the threads from the past two weeks: the start; promo; art; bookshops; Victorian scandal; LGBT themes; language; characters; research; structure. 3/14

A pen arrives! to replace one which seems to have hidden itself. A fine-nibbed @Kaweco_Germany Skyline Sport in 'fox', swiftly delivered by @ThePenCompany. They write so beautifully when paired with Pelikan 4001 ink. (Kaweco ink doesn't flow quickly enough for my writing style).

Look, look! at this house, which I covet. It is in the shape of a cross. It is the house at the start of so many modern ghost stories. "We're here, darling. Let's put all the recent nastiness behind us, and try to forget Timothy's... well, let's just try to forget." 1/4

This would be where we park, on arrival. We'd get out and look and smile at each other. We'd return to the car to grab a few boxes, but one of us would notice something. "Did you see it? I thought... at that top window... No, it was nothing." "Come on, time for a cup of tea." 2/4

Inside, one of us would stop downstairs, but the other would be in the attic rooms. She would notice the strange discolouration to the right of the fireplace. Nothing much to see, until a week later, when the plaster crumbled. 3/4

Night would fall, and in a makeshift bedroom there would be silence, apart from the sounds of nature and the nearby loch, and then the unmistakable creak of an opening gate and the crunch of hooves and wheels on long-gone gravel, on a driveway which no longer exists. 4/4

(All this aside, it's a great property, and—in the absence of someone buying it for me for reasons—I hope it becomes a happy home for its new owner (and whatever else is already there). rightmove.co.uk/properties/1… )

If you grew up on Misty, Tammy or Jinty comics in the 70s, or Goosebumps in the 90s, and you'd like your kids to tap into the same kind of teen weirdness I can heartily recommend Just Beyond on @disneyplus

I cannot stress enough the beauty and wisdom of this manifesto, from @HooklandGuide.
Replying to @sarahkmarr
Thank you. Far too kind, but thank you. It is just what is learned along the way.

"Do I remember Dickon's tweet, you say? Well, I mean, of course. I retweeted it, didn't I? The whole affair was frightfully 'meta', was it not? Tag him? Tag @dickon_edwards? Why on earth would I have done that? I did? Well, if you say so. I was terribly drunk at the time."

If you'd like proof that being punk and DIYing can work out, you need look no further than the territory of @HooklandGuide itself.
Replying to @HooklandGuide
… can I just say a big thank you. It gives hope I can translate to the kids I mentor, hope that being punk and DIYing can work out. Seeing others walk the territory is sustaining.

The narrator of "The Haunting of Bly Manor" has a remarkable Surrey-by-Yorkshire-on-the-Wirral accent.

Absolutely.
I’m hoping that the vast majority of Doctor Who fans, and indeed everyone else I know, would agree with Russell T. Davies and with me that #IStandWithStonewall

It's 2021. Why, oh why, are script editors still allowing creepy music boxes to feature in spooky movies? If a character happens upon a wooden or silver box in a room, it's seemingly guaranteed to play some tinkling dirge when opened. FFS. #horror?

It's a rare tweet when @memorialdevice's recollections are out of step with my own, and Halloween carving tradition certainly isn't one of them. (This little fellow—the lantern, not the plaster skull—is from 2017.)
The house we grew up in: Halloween. Pumpkin free.
