Here is our achievement list. Let's see how many we can knock off!
One of the more invaluable services in any exchange is a beta! While it is not necessary to have one in order to participate, betas can help by casting an eye over your work and giving opinions, making suggestions, or cheering you on in the dark hours of "oh God this is due in two hours and I have scrapped everything I did before".
If you are able to beta, please comment below with:

Having a weekend with partner in Frankfurt.
Hotel perhaps overdoing the stylish minimalism: why does this always mean, nowhere to put stuff in the bathroom? However, good marks for the breakfast buffet.
On matters of modern design, am I the only person who finds themself waving their hands at a tap that turns on some other way, and vice versa?
Today to the Stadel- art gallery, very good stuff and lots of it. Among works observed, one C16th courtesan as Flora, with obligatory symbolickal bubbie displayed.
Also to the Arts and Crafts Museum, which has gone full-on poncey and eschews labeling in favour of composing curatorial 'constellations'. Though I could have spent more time with the shiny pillow-like balloons that one was permitted even exhorted to touch. (Sometimes I am shallow and frivolous.)
Some general flaneurserie, looking into churches, etc.
For our fourth challenge:
One Object, Two Perspectives
Choose any object or artefact, and draw it from two different perspectives.
The object you choose to draw can be either fandom or non-fandom-related. It can be drawn from different angles. eg. front, top, side view, etc.

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Peter Quill, Yondu Udonta
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: Skidar on Tumblr (artist's tagging is somewhat haphazard, but most of their other fanart can be found under the skidar-art tag)
Why this piece is awesome: Since the new movie came out, there's been a ton of excellent art about kid!Peter and Yondu, so it was hard to pick one to start with! I went with this one because it's very cute and lively with wonderful details, and I could totally see them getting into a situation like this.

Re the current hoohah about Boots the chemist charging well over the odds for the morning after pill, I was going to comment - when posting the link on various bits of social media, to go 'and Edwin Brooks must be spinning in his grave!'
Brooks was the MP who put through the sometimes overlooked but significant 1966 Family Planning Act: as discussed in that post I did some while back on 'why birth control is free under the NHS'.
However, I discovered from googling that - as far as one can tell from The Usual Sources - Brooks is still alive, but moved to Australia. I am profoundly shocked that the Wikipedia entry, under his political achievements, doesn't include that act. We wonder if, in the long history of reproductive rights, it got overshadowed by the more controversial 1967 Abortion Act, or, by the final incorporation of contraception into the NHS in 1974. If I had time on my hands (which at this moment I don't) I would go and try and edit that entry.
