1. Hillary Clinton is coming here to speak, as part of her book tour. I have a ticket, which also apparently means a copy of her book, *and* since my dad is a Very Big Donor, I get to meet her. Pay, I'm not as excited about this as I was about George Takei, but still. (N.B. I am also feeling ridiculously defensive about this, so please no HRC-bashing in comments. I probably don't need to say that but I'd rather preempt any drama)

2. Getting close to done with the bunny I'm making for the now-12-year-old kid with fop who's still in the hospital. I have an ear I'm satisfied with, so just have to make a second ear and then attach them. And then do the trach, if I can figure that out. "

3. Getting my first delta. Er, okay, that requires explanation. There's a subreddit called cmv -- change my view -- where people post their opinion on something to get other people to chsnge their mind. (Basically, "I believe X, and it's an unpopular opinion and I'd like to believe something else, so persuade me otherwise".) If you feel a comment has changed your view, whether or not you're the op in the thread, you can award a delta, kind of like a kudos; this is separate from the upvoting/downvoting that all Reddit uses. I've posted a few things ere or there as responses, but mostly they've been un-responded to, much less in-delayed, until tonight. Which is trivial and yet super exciting.

4. The realization that I can order another tube hydration system thing (like what I use at night) for choir rehearsals. Hydrating during choir is awkward because I need both hands for the iPad, which means my drink has to go in my hip pack drink holder thingie, but the ridiculously straws I have aren't long enough to reach without me holding the bottom of the cup; and it's really hard for me to get the cup out when there's an iPad in the way. But this tubing system is stiff enough that I can get it to my mouth -- I'd gotten it for bed because the water bottle hangs above me and the tubing hangs down from it and I just need to move it laterally to get it to my mouth, but this particular system is nicely sturdy enough that I can hold it pointing up without it immediately flipping -- and then I wouldn't have to get the *bottle* out, just wave the tubing in my face, and otherwise have it in my lap within easy reach.

5. The fact that Phantom Tollbooth is available in kindle format. 😍 It's been ages since I read it and it's just as charming and wacky as I remember. (And it has a great first sentence: "There was once a boy named Milo who didn’t know what to do with himself—not just sometimes, but always.")

Here's the breakdown for how nominations to the tagset should work this year. I'll post a link to the tagset tomorrow, please use this post to ask about any questions related to the nominations process or regarding metafandoms. As we approve tags and have questions related to your nominations, I'll start a new post with those questions.

Nominating fandoms:

For Marvel and DC, generally we end up with nominations for the top-level All Media Type tags (which are Marvel and DCU respectively), mid-level metafandoms (eg MCU, DCU (Comics)), and specific fandoms (eg Hawkeye (Comics), The Flash (TV)).

For things like video game series (Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem) and TV shows with rolling continuity (Doctor Who and Torchwood, Buffy and Angel) it’s preferable to nominate on a metafandom. If you’re planning on nominating something like this, feel free to discuss in comments, otherwise we’ll ask for clarification as they come up in nominations. Fandoms with mostly rolling continuity but some bumps (Star Trek as a whole vs AOS, X-Men movies, etc) usually get grouped into multiple metafandoms in the same way as Marvel or DCU, but there’s less need to get as detailed (ie Star Trek and AOS as the only two categories is fine, no need to specify TNG vs DS9).

Nominating fandoms in this way also helps cut down on the need for crossovers. If you’re nominating a relationship that is a crossover, it gets nominated to the fandom Crossover. But if you’re nominating within a metafandom, that’s not an issue (see below for more details).

Generally speaking, if one media format AND the All Media Types format of a fandom are nominated, we’ll select the AMT type, though we will try and ask for clarification if it happens (since directors can make movies very different from the books).



Nominating relationships:

Please make sure it has three characters, and uses the / symbol instead of the & symbol between all characters.

Please always nominate to the highest applicable metafandom. If you do not disambiguate while nominating a relationship, it’ll be placed in the highest applicable metafandom. If you have multiple disambiguations in one relationship, it will be placed in the highest applicable metafandom.

Examples:

James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson: gets assigned to Marvel, since it could mean comics or MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson (MCU): I assume this means one disambiguation for the relationship as a whole, and put it in MCU.
James "Bucky" Barnes(Ultimates)/Steve Rogers (MCU)/Sam Wilson (MCU): there is a comics disambig and a movies disambig so it gets assigned to Marvel, which covers both.

One assignment, one pinch-hit.

The recip for my assignment hasn't responded to any of her recent gifts, either comment or kudos, so while I think it's kind of rude not to say thank you, at least it's not personal.
Title: as the wyrm turns
Fandom
: Merlin
Characters: Merlin, Gwen
Relationships: Merlin & Gwen
Rating: G
Summary: Magic had laws. His mother had been a lecturer of physics at Oxford for years before her sciatica made the constant standing an agony. Hunith had been the one to teach Merlin that all energy came from somewhere, that there was nothing new under the sun, and that every action had an equal and opposite reaction. She’d also been the one to observe that her son’s abilities and gifts followed those rules...most of the time.
I actually wanted to write a whole lot more to this - Arthur and Morgana and Merlin and Gwen all sitting down to dinner and having a conversation about magic and what it means in the world...

My second genex was a PH I picked up because I liked the recip, and because I could. It's not as brilliant as I'd envisioned it in my head (sometimes your brain does this, you know? And then it's not quite as magnificent as you thought it would be).
Title: stars of hope in dark despair
Fandom
: Rogue One
Characters: Chirrut Îmwe, Baze Malbus, Luke Skywalker
Relationships: Chirrut Îmwe & Luke Skywalker, Chirrut Îmwe/Baze Malbus (background)
Rating: G
Summary: There’s no palm trees, no sand, no watery inlets, no tower – not anymore. Yet Chirrut knows exactly where he is. He can feel it – hope and success in the midst of death and destruction – that this was both the ending and the beginning, like the tale of an ancient snake who endlessly swallowed its tail to represent time unending...
I've had an idea for the story from Luke's POV for some time, and after writing this, I have ides for more Chirrut-and-Baze backstory, but the issue of time and hijacked brain is big right now...

And a recent Captain Hill snippet:
Title: Office Gossip
Fandom
: MCU
Characters: Steve Rogers, Cameron Klein
Relationships: Maria Hill/Steve Rogers
Rating: PG
Summary: “So, I heard that Commander Hill is seeing someone.”

Steve looks sharply up from the missions Maria gave him to sign off. Then he remembers that the person Maria is seeing is him.
This was a snippet that sprang from another fic I wrote a while back - 'go down with your shield or come back upon it' - which featured Steve and Maria negotiating their relationship.

This one was...kind of fun. And silly. But fun, too.

It’s kind of nice to post a humourous Captain Hill ficlet I dug up off the HD last night, forget about it, and then only remember this morning when looking at my works page to discover it has 180 hits, 40 kudos, and 4 comments already.

I am starting to think that the Marriage Equality survey here in Australia will prove to be Australian Evangelicals’ ‘Trump’ moment. The ‘no’ side will win by a narrow margin, but it will be because half the people didn’t respond to the survey, and in the process, the most vicious ‘no’ responders (the 'loud and proud no' side) will have burned bridges beyond repairing for a generation already on the verge of asking, “Where is your God of mercy? We see none of His qualities in you.”

*grieves*

How I know I’m losing weight: my bra cups suddenly don’t fit my breasts. Which makes me feel like I’m walking around with my tits hanging out, never mind that I have two or three layers of clothing over the top.

Tonight, I have a quiet night. I don't even have to cook dinner; I prepped a lamb shoulder last night and stuck it in the slow-cooker this morning. I just have to get the sister to slice the potatoes and toss them in around midday...

Art Movement: Cubism

I would like to apologize formally for dropping the ball on this community. These last couple of weeks have been a garbage fire, but it's still on me, and I will do my very best not to let that happen again. Let's get me back on the rails and start our fall art movement!


Cubism

Set yourself a goal that you think you can complete between today, September 20th, and December 1st. This can be a number of colors completed, a certain palette, a number of styles or supplies used, a word count, a combination of these-- anything that you regard as a challenge. Comment on this post with your goal.

On December 1st, one of the mods will put up a post where you can comment reiterating your goal and whether or not you completed it. If you complete your goal, you get twenty Novelty Beads prompts, with an additional five prompt for every quarter to third you go over your goal, at the mods' discretion.

Goal-setting runs from today, September 20th, to October 15th. The challenge runs from today to December 1st. We will have an Amnesty Week immediately after as usual.

Set your goals in this post, and happy writing!

Pattern by Tereena Clarke of Artecy Cross Stitch based on a painting by Joseph Anton Koch.

Stitch parking level 2: achievement unlocked. I can't tell you how many times I went to park a thread and found another thread already parked there. I think I properly fixed everything I caught, but goodness only knows if this looks anything like it was supposed to.

I can’t decide if I’m ready to level up to the pattern I’m dying to make, or if I should do one more slightly harder pattern first before working my way up to that. My end goal is a massive HAED pattern with 234 colors.

The second picture is a distance shot because this pattern was done in the pointillist style, so the farther away you stand, the more detailed it looks.

This week was a good week for the project, I managed to get lots done. Helped in no small part by having the day off on Friday and having decided to binge listen to a podcast series while I was at it. Unsurprisingly, around five solid hours of cross-stitching does make an impact on a project.

NSFW Yurio Week Roundup

Sep. 17th, 2017 06:30 pm
yurionicefans: (Default)
[personal profile] ashiiblack posting in [community profile] yurionicefans
 I created something for every day of NSFW Yurio Week! Here’s what I made (please note everything listed below is Explicit):

Wondrous Moment - Pliroy (underage - Yuri is 16) - Theme: First Times - JJ tries to seduce Yuri by reading him terribly cheesy Russian poetry. Bit of humor, bit of smut. 

Pinned and Marked - Otapliroy (ambiguous age) - Theme: Biting and Marking - JJ catches Yuri flirting with his Yuri’s Angels and decides he and Otabek need to show them who he belongs to. Pretty much PWP.

[podfic] Why Can’t I Touch It? - Otayuri (underage) - Theme: AU/Crossover - Yuri and Otabek are friends from childhood, but there is a LOT of unresolved sexual tension. That changes when they begin masturbating in bed beside each other. I loved recording this fic by boxwineconfession (plus, her HBB verse is so much fun!).

Fifteen - Vikturio (Yuri is 25, but roleplays as though he is 15) - Theme: Size Difference - Yuri finds out that Viktor had a crush on him when he was fifteen and teases him in the most sexual way possible. Just two consenting adults enjoying some roleplay.

Stolen Moments - Vikturio (underage - Yuri is 16) - Theme: Possessiveness/Jealousy - Viktor and Yuri are having an affair behind Yuuri’s back. Viktor gives Yuri a ring to show his affection and Yuri shows it off whenever he has the chance. An exploration of the dynamics of a very inappropriate affair.

Madness in the Locker Room - Pliroy (underage - Yuri is 15) - Theme: Exhibitionism/Public Sex - This fic was inspired by art from the FABULOUS Luscious White Flame. JJ had turned Yuri down twice before, but after watching his exhibition, he couldn’t stop himself if he tried. (also, Otabek is a good bro) 

Open My Doors - Yu2 (Yuri is 19) - Theme: Free Day - In a post Viktuuri world, where Yuuri coaches Yuri, they have also started a secret relationship. It focuses on their decision to finally tell Viktor. This is a WIP, and I should be posting the second chapter sometime in the next week!

tielan: (AVG - Natasha)
[personal profile] tielan
My fic for Franzi and Gecko's fic exchange - a small friends-oriented exchange. You would not believe how many times I rewrote this assignment before I finally settled on this story. Apparently I have sedoretu on the brain...
The Road That Leads To Home (1595 words) by tielan
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Laura Barton/Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton & Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton/Laura Barton, James "Bucky" Barnes/Natasha Romanov
Characters: Natasha Romanova, Laura Barton, Clint Barton, James "Bucky" Barnes
Additional Tags: Post-Captain America: Civil War (Movie), Sedoretu
Summary:
He surveys the land before them as the Wakandan plane hovers over the landscape, and Natasha tries to imagine it through his eyes.

“A farm?”

“A safehouse.” Somewhere to recover, with no lingering ghosts, with nothing to trigger his responses, even now the programming has been taken out.

The expression on his face is bleak. “And is it safe for them?”

Trick or Treat 2017

Sep. 17th, 2017 04:09 pm
thecolourclear: (doctor who: worst rescue ever)
[personal profile] thecolourclear
I've requested fanfic for all, but Tricks and Treats switch. My general likes and dislikes shift depending on the fandom. I might like fast-paced dialogue heavy fic in one (The West Wing) but abhor it in another (His Dark Materials). I make prompt-specific exceptions for non-con. Please keep that in mind for the below prompts:

Doctor Who: Donna, The Silence
ToT: Trick


Donna is a character I have a complicated history with. I loathed her when she aired, but still agreed that she got a terrible ending that erased her entire character arc. On reruns I've come around to her, probably because I know what's coming and that colors how I look at her season. Martha's still my favorite companion, but Donna's now a pretty close second. The Silence are my favorite villains (it was the angels before they were completely ruined) and the first episode with them was superb. Somehow Donna and the Silence have always gone together in my mind, and I'd love to see something explored with that ... something deep and dark and totally smutty. Donna takes on the Silence, but the Silence take Donna ---> literally no holds barred to this prompt. No DNW. Non-con, character death, blood and gore, it's all okay.

IF THAT IS NOT YOUR CUP OF TEA, DO NOT PANIC. Donna is lovely and the Silence are terrifying, so my likes below should help you out - I will love whatever you write!

Likes:
-shadows that go bump in the night
-literally taking place during Halloween
-fearless Donna
-brave Donna
-Donna doesn't need the Doctor
-characters in costume
-things in costumes (or not) that are definitely not human
-the Silence love stealing candy from children during Halloween
-the Silence are the monsters in the dark
-the Silence just need a night to relax
-the Silence play pranks on each other
-nobody coming to the rescue
-alternatively, the worst rescue ever


Good Omens - War, Pepper
ToT: Trick or Treat


Pepper and War are my two favorite non-main characters. I'd love to see them together, in some fashion, but if not the likes below should apply to both of them! I adore the Martin Jarvis audiobook and will probably read this with his voice in my head (if that helps with getting into the characters). For this, I really dislike common understanding amongst enemies (except A/C) or sympathy for the enemy, etc. And as that relates to Pepper and War, I don't want either of them taking pity on them who isn't already on their side. Pepper 'playing' War during a sex rp with a partner would be fun to see (Pepper into BDSM of all/any sorts would be great). War as a constant ravager, even when she's trying not to be, also good. War knowing exactly what she's doing and reveling in it, also good.

I love how the novel breaks the 4th wall, and would love it incorporated in some way.

General likes:
-post-canon
-unhappy endings
-revenge
-standalone scenes with no ties to larger plot
-stymied plots due to the actions of an unrelated character (butterfly affect)
-angels as ghosts, demons as ghosts, everyone's a ghost
-finding things in common with your enemy
-but they're still you're enemy
-and you're definitely still out to get them
-captured damsels who are not in distress and very crass about rescue attempts
-captured damsels who ARE in distress but think they have a way out of it (they don't)
-accidentally summoning of either Horsemen or the Spawn of Satan
-characters appearing in non-humanoid form
-sex scenes gone so very wrong
-any sex scene limited to handcuffs, blindfolds, whipped cream, and/or vibrators
-Breaking of the 4th wall

DNW:
-AU of any kind
-character death (War can have temporary character death) (unless they're all dead, then no death-like incapacitating actions)
-characters coming to some 'understand the enemy and have compassion' moments
-please no War and Pepper as a couple (though feel free to ship them with literally anyone else)
-underage (Pepper only)
-any kink other than outlined in the likes
-Crowley and Aziraphale (except in passing or to offer up some sidebar commentary/narration) (actually the two of them arguing about how a story happened would likely be hilarious and if you want to do it, go for it, but the point is I don't want them IN the story with Pepper and/or War)


Saga - Petrichor
Tot: Treat


I really would like to see Petrichor gets some lovin' (robot prince or otherwise). Poor girl deserves it. I would like the basic theme of canon kept in place (no AU plot deviations), but don't worry about fitting it into the canon timeline.

General Likes:
-Happy endings
-a story that doesn't take itself too seriously
-PWP
-characters in costume
-mistaken identities*
-Petrichor acting sweet around Hazel
-Petrichor snarking the hell off everyone but Hazel
-Petrichor grumbling about how much she hates something but she gives in and finds she actual is enjoying herself
-Anything set inside the treeship
-crazy plot with supernatural elements (maybe they pass by a planet and there are ghosts, or they land and things are covered in mist and basically the start of every horror movie ever)

DNW:
-Character death
-transphobic comments/characters
-*non-con (for the purposes of 'mistaken identities' you can assume that the sex is consensual across identities), blood-play, race play (as it would apply to the comic)

Finally, I read this serially, so feel free to incorporate anything character-wise we learn into this. Unless Petrichor dies and then just pretend that never ever happened and let me live my life in peaceful denial.

The Decoy Bride - any
ToT: Treat


I adore this movie. I'm not sure how I first found it to watch, but it's amazing and in my permanent Netflix queue. You could pick any of the characters and do anything with them (including ship them with anyone, even unhappily) and I would be happy. I would like it set on the island.

General likes for this:
-unreliable narrator (I feel this has to be a given)
-plot twists happening due to geography and/or weather
-ambiguous endings
-the haunted toilet really being haunted
-other things haunted that are not the toilet and manifest in unusual ways
-the characters falling befoul of some ancient law on the island
-said law having supernatural roots
-said supernatural roots then manifesting
-especially zombies
-a lack of supplies on the island making life difficult
-interrupted sex scenes (especially if supernatural elements cause it) (or if said sex act triggers the ancient law)

DNW:
-non-con
-major character death (temporary character death is okay)
-graphic depictions of violence (blood, gore, etc)

Also, I have a headache, although that might be from consumption of too much alcohol.

We lost the grand final, but it took us half the game to find out feet and our opponents came out the gate swinging. (Plus, I'm not entirely sure they didn't stack their team with a couple of players from higher grades, but eh. What can you do? The organiser has known when the Grand final games were going to be played for at least a month now, but we only got the update for times on Wednesday.)

Friday night and Saturday were great - a weekend away with the women from church. I had some good conversations, including one with the speaker. (She's in a situation much like my mother's was thirty years ago, and I wanted to let her know that I appreciated her candour, but also to reassure her that her children are watching her, loving her, and appreciating her - that shit happens, but we grew up and deal with it (some better than others).

Hi fellow Yuletiders! Noms close in less than 24 hours (or maybe they've already closed by the time this is approved?) and as we move into signups and writing and reading, freneticfloetry and I wanted to give a small reminder/invitation (ok honestly, it's a copy/paste job with minor edits... #efficiency) to participate in the Misses Clause Challenge*.

Now in its seventh year, the Misses Clause Challenge was created to promote the inclusion, expansion, and celebration of women in fanfiction. We'd like to challenge you all to think about the ways women are represented in fanworks, and write fic either centered on female characters or fic within a fandom with a rich and diverse cast of characters that includes valuable and important female voices.

Participation is easy! Initially, the challenge set out to include more female characters in fic using the Bechdel Test as a barometer. But honestly, plenty of sources can (and do) successfully pass without putting female characters anywhere near the forefront. So the general rule for participating in the Misses Clause Challenge is simple:

Write women.

That's it! Write women who are celebrated, who are unsung, who are the heroes of their own stories or the unfortunate victims of circumstance. Write women talking, fighting, saving the day, or just going about their business. Write women of all ages, shapes, sizes, races, creeds, sexual orientations, mental and physical abilities, or moral fiber. Write women, full stop.

Easy enough, right? So if you’re willing, and we hope you are…

· Write a Yuletide assignment or treat with one or more women as the focus. Femslash, female POV, ensemble fic, whatever works for you — as long as there's a female character front and center, your fic fulfills the challenge.
· Tag your finished fic with "Misses Clause Challenge".

There is still maybe time to nominate women, if you're so inclined. And there is definitely time to think about requesting prompts that feature female characters so that the letters post is full of options.

From there, search out those that request women, maybe bookmark one for later, or even start a treat. There's a lot of female characters nominated annually and a number of requests will coincide with that. Maybe one of the letters might start or keep the creative juices flowing.

And to all of those who have taken up the challenge, or who are considering doing so this year, I just want to say, on behalf of both myself and freneticfloetry, Thank You. We try to keep this very low key with absolutely no pressure to participate, and yet we're continually blown away by the support and the number of folks who take on the challenge as well as the types of awesome fic that you guys create year after year. So, thank you, again, for your participation, your openness to the challenge, your totally legitimate concerns and critiques. Here’s to Yuletide 2017, and another great wave of new Misses Clause stories.

Sincerely,

G (hauntedd) & Court (freneticfloetry)


*The challenge name was meant to be a punny play on the fic season and a bad movie, and was not meant to be exclusionary in any way. (And yes, the "e" was intentional.)
