Ytak


Ytak reads. A lot. Probably spends too much time reading. Or that sentence blasphemous?

RL oddities and musings · 3:01am Oct 22nd, 2020

My last grandparent passed not too long ago. My grandma was 99 years and a handful of days old. Is it odd that I find it easier to write that here, when I've never met any of you and only know of you through the written word, and not post it to my friends and family on the book face?

User Name Change from ReaderRyn to Ytak · 11:19pm May 15th, 2020

I changed my user name from ReaderRyn to Ytak.
Been debating it awhile but it "Ytak" is my oldest handle and the same one I like to use on the other fanfic sites I haunt. It just feels right to use it here, too. :)

The Prettiest Plague Doctor Mask · 12:28am May 5th, 2020

So, one of my friends shared this pieced and quilted plague doctor mask. I admit, I went "oooooo, pretty." Then I looked at the directions and laughed. That's a lot more work than I want to do (though I do have the skill to do it). But there is a pattern to the simplified mask. That I'm going to take a stab at. :) Perhaps I'll share photos here.

After three weeks of visiting family, only grandma and I are in the house. Finally. Maybe now I can catch up on the backlog of stories.

Sewing · 12:59am Jun 19th, 2019

I got sucked into the land of sewing for the last four or five days. I was in the mood and inspired to make skirts for a friend's daughter. Amazing what is and isn't updated while I'm lost in the land of creating. I even used metallic thread for a bit of embellishment and, for the first time, put pockets in skirts. I don't know if they are big enough. I was making a guess on the size of a 5 year old's hands. Also, I made the skirts without a physical pattern.

FYI · 1:17am Apr 23rd, 2019

Not many followers but, since I know I'm a fairly regular commenter on some authors' stories, I figure I should drop a line somewhere. Going on vacation soon and I'm not paying for internet access. Going to be nice getting the break from it. Will definitely be off about a week (7 day cruise with friends) but likely won't spend much time for closer to a week and a half. Also don't normally mention trips in advance but the house will be occupied so I don't need to worry about that. :)

Fic bit? · 10:42pm Oct 22nd, 2018

Not even sure if this qualifies as a fic bit. But if I don't write it down now, I will forget. This way, someone else might be able to giggle along with the silliness. Maybe one day it will turn into a full one-shot. Maybe.

Meh. · 2:37am Oct 1st, 2018

I can tell I haven't been in the mood for reading much fan fiction lately (but some stories always get my attention). My queue is now at 221 unread chapters. Okay, to be fair, I've been bookmarking stories that sound interesting to read later but the backlog is getting a bit obscene.

Fic bit · 8:04pm Jul 12th, 2018

So, it finally happened. Another story spawned a fic bit I feel is half worth sharing. :p I linked the original story. I recommend reading it first.

This ficbit takes place before this story by Georg.
