wildcard_47: (Politics - putin rears his head)
Well, once again, I'm backing up my LJ to dreamwidth thanks to potential shenanigans. This time, it's political.


 padawansguide linked to this post from an LJ admin in one of her recent updates, which summarizes the major points of interest:

http://siderea.livejournal.com/1330197.html#comments

To wit:
  • The LJ servers may now be under the legal jurisdiction of Russia, not the US
  • The Russian government may now have unfettered access to all LJ content, especially including friends-locked content
  • That LJ users in Russia are at risk of persecution and prosecution for content (e.g. LGBT content, pro-Ukraine content) posted under lock in the previous 10+ years
  • That LJ users around the world may find their accounts deleted and their access terminated because of their political sentiments
  • That non-state actors - i.e. criminals - in Russia may wind up with access to locked LJ content, in a number of scenarios, ranging from "SUP sells our data to stay afloat" to "disgruntled employee decides to moonlight" to "government agent shares data got by the state with the Russian mafia for kicks/favors" to "hackers".
  • That the Kremlin will drive enough Russosphere users off LJ, that it will no longer be financially for SUP, and collapse economically, causing the lights to go out on LJ abruptly
So, yeah. Just in case, I'm on dreamwidth and my journal's up to date. Add me if you want! I'm still lurking and enjoy reading all of your posts, even if I don't comment much. And I paid for a premium account so I can have my goddamn icon space, because if 2017 takes LJ down, I'm at least going to keep my aesthetic!

Chapters: 13/?
Summary: A mid-S4 AU. "Joan presses her lips together, glancing away for a brief moment. In any other situation Lane's confusion might be funny, but her stomach is tied in knots waiting for his reaction. He's so quiet that Joan feels she has to elaborate, in case it hasn't sunk in yet. “My cycle is late."

He bolts upright in his chair, posture rigid, pencil in his hand falling to the desk. “You—you're—”

"She manages to nod, once."

wildcard_47: (TV - Lady Mary)
(I promise I'm doing things other than writing fanfic and watching Mad Men. Seriously.)

Work's been a little odd. We had two servers leave this month -- one guy, Matt, who'd been with us ever since we opened, and his girlfriend, Veronica, who'd been there a year and a half. Three new people just got hired to take their place. So it's been a small adjustment period. I don't really enjoy training new people. I can be patient, and don't mind having to go through what they need to learn, but the general awkwardness, plus having to keep up on small talk for most of the evening, is the worst.

I'm also in the middle of writing the town visitor's guide for our chamber of commerce. It was due a couple weeks ago technically, but I was unhappy with the draft I came up with and needed to cut out quite a bit of nonsense from the version I was working off of, so I'm still grinding out new work as of this week. Hope to have that done soon. It's been frustrating, but at least I'm getting paid for it.

Last weekend I got to see [livejournal.com profile] dozmuffinxc and several of my old college friends/former professors for J's regency birthday tea at the O'Henry Hotel. We had an amazing time, and it was really lovely to visit with everyone again. There are pictures on facebook and on my phone. I'll edit this post later to put those up here if I can. :)

My cat Goldie is doing better. Thanks to everyone who commented on last week's post. I took him back to the vet for a checkup on Wednesday and the wound on his neck has been healing really well. His energy is up, and I think he's gained a tiny bit of weight, too. All good things.

I haven't really been keeping up with the Boston bombing news, apart from the day of the manhunt, when I got sucked back in. The desperate need of the networks to be the first with "breaking news" has made me beyond frustrated. Plus, every time I looked at the grisly pictures I just felt torn up, and I didn't even know anyone in the event. I got to a point where I just had to stop seeking out those things for my own mental health. So, most of the posts I've been reading about Boston have been of the "goodness of human nature" type -- Runner's World's website has featured plenty of those articles over the past few days.

I'm also glad to hear that my Texas friends are okay, given the plant explosion in West. Honestly, it's been one of those weeks where all of the terrible events have just mixed together in my mind. To quote The Onion: "Jesus, This Week."

I'm lurking around LJ and trying to catch up on previous posts/comments. Let me know if there's anything big I've somehow missed.

[Error: unknown template qotd] I want to be cremated. I think there's something more natural about cremation than there is in putting a corpse into an expensive box. But I don't want to go into the funeral home incinerator. Too clinical. Build a funeral pyre in the woods and Darth Vader my body to the other side. That way I can float into the sky and scatter to the winds.

...so here it is: THE DOCTOR WHO/TORCHWOOD FIC REC POST (of doom). For many, many people on my f-list.

It's quite giant (that's what she said?), but would likely be larger if my computer hadn't been gutted and re-formatted late last year. I lost quite a bit of fic/favorited items.

Anyway. It's organized, overall, by series/Doctor and then by episode arc, etc. Most of the info I've put down (notes, summaries, etc.) if available, was by author of original posts.

If I've missed a story or a drabble which is utterly fantastic and deserves to be here, please rec me in turn. If not, just enjoy! There is probably enough fanon here to sustain you for years. ;)

I feel like it's probably very difficult to punish a ghost. I've never tried.

But we can't let a thing like being undead get in the way of justice. :)

wildcard_47: (Alias - reading fanfic)
For those of you on the f-list who were (or still are, in my case) fans of the TV show Alias, I've written a tiny Alias-centered piece.

It started with me having watched far too much Project Runway on Friday, and then reading this particular story by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 a few days ago and deciding there was something to be explored in Marshall's ability to adapt CIA-grade gear into regular clothes.

Hence, fic:
