Hello, and welcome!

My name (as you can see next to my avatar) is Jennifer Linsky. I wrote Flowers of Luna, a cross-genre Sapphic romance in a hard science fiction setting. If that sounds interesting to you, you can check it out on Goodreads: (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/32882682-flowers-of-luna ).

Jennifer is the most common girl's name of all time, and we all have our prefered version of it. While it is never wrong to call me Jennifer, if you're going to shorten it, I prefer Jeni or Jenny to Jen or Jenna. Here's some other stuff to know about me:

Almost everything I write on G+ is publicly shared. You're welcome to add me... your stream is yours, and I would not presume to tell you who you should or should not follow. But I will probably not add most of you back. I like to actually interact with the people I have in my various circles, and the couple of thousand of you that are following me would likely overwhelm my ability to do that in short order. Sorry about that.

I'm chronically ill. I have an auto-immune disorder... essentially, my immune system has decided it hates every other part of my body, and is trying its damndest to kill it. As a consequence of that disorder, I am often tired, afraid, and depressed. I try to deal with these feelings with grace and humor, but sometimes I fail. If I snark at you, I absolutely mean it, but I probably could have expressed it more gently, and for that, I apologize.

I am a socialist, a veteran of the US Navy, a retired nurse, a writer, hafu, a Sapphist. I play with bass guitars. I'm often found on the Goblin server of Final Fantasy XIV. I am fascinated by technology in general, and especially by genetics, robotics, informatics and nanotechnology, or GRIN technologies.

As I said up at the top, welcome. Please take your shoes off when you come in... Google Plus is not a foreign country.

Fallsteinjäger

Dwarven airmobile heavy infantry.

Elite troops of the Civil War, these Dwarven halberdiers overcome their distaste for being separated from the soil, climb aboard flying boats, and are carried behind enemy formations. They drink potions which harden their skin, making them nigh invulnerable for a short period of time, and then leap overboard, falling on their foes from behind.

The secret of the potions is known only to a select caste of Dwarven alchemists known as "Stoners," none of whom has ever been captured by an opposing force.

Asleep brain rhymed "my ex" with "secrets" in a dream.

Prion diseases fascinate me. A prion is simply one of the myriad proteins your body uses all the time, but it's folded differently -- wrong, from the standpoint of its utility in your body.

But how does one misfolded protein convince your mitochondria that it is the correct version?

Beautiful pictures of Tokyo with a snow on. They got about 30 cm, according to +candy javier sakai. Climate change! ... is what I'd like to say, but of course, you can't attribute any one weather event to climate change.

What I will say is that I didn't see any snow when I lived in Chiba for two winters.

... oddly enough, it doesn't surprise me that this research comes out of Brigham Young University.

I remain unconvinced that battery electric has won the race for the next big energy transport medium. Though I will acknowledge that they've been in the lead the last couple of laps.
