Bombings, shootings, explosions, sink holes, earthquakes, storms, and locally the drowning of a toddler and the conviction of a home health aide for the murder of her client. This has been a defective week. I wish I had more to entertain you with this time around.

Happy Saturday! I've spent the morning in bed with the laptop and I totally earned that with the way it's been at work lately. I figure everyone could use some cheering up/distracting today so have some links

It's been a good week for cool stuff but I realized that I had stuff in email, chat, and tumblr that wasn't making its way here so have some linkspam:

This is the final final edit I hope. I've been trying to get this posted with all links and formatting working for 2 hours.  Tip: Don't use the automatic crosspost feature at Dreamwidth anymore  if you mirror there. Since the last LJ update the HTML will not survive the trip without a gltich.

Sorry there's no cut but for some reason when I put in the cut it made the middle third of the post disappear entirely and I couldn't figure out how to fix the html.

Great Quote:

After Alfred's literary hero, Jeeves, the most famous butler in fiction is probably Stevens in Remains of the Day. Alfred remembered fondly that book's account of an unflappable butler serving in India, who interrupts his master's tea to report a rabid tiger has entered the house and rests beneath the dining room table. The butler calmly asks permission to use a particular weapon, after which the guests hear three gunshots. The butler returns to refresh the teapot and reports "Dinner will be served at the usual time, milord, and I am pleased to say there will be no discernable traces of the recent occurrence by that time."

Perhaps it was the gift for dignified understatement that put Alfred more in mind of Stevens than Jeeves at this particular moment. Or perhaps it was that Stevens' duties brought him into contact with Nazis and Nazi collaborators, while the worst Jeeves had to contend with were chaps called Tuppy Glossop and Gussie Finknottle.

"There is a matter in the library requiring your attention, sir," Alfred announced soberly. Bruce turned from his place where Signora Rinaldi was measuring counter space for a demonstration on olive pressing, and Alfred continued. "Your immediate attention, sir."

Assuming this was yet another of the endless preparations for the festival, Bruce entered the library with a distracted air, totally unprepared for the sight that would greet him. The transition to Batman was instantaneous as his brain registered it - the Joker! - sitting in an easy chair - feet up on an endtable - balancing a leather-bound volume of Emily Dickenson poems on his chin.

When the Lights Come On Again by[personal profile] seanchai & [personal profile] elspethdixonThanks so much[livejournal.com profile] jojo_kun for helping me find this!
Summary: Aliens have invaded earth, and the Avengers are scattered. While Steve leads the resistance, Tony once again finds himself playing captive scientist. In the midst of a violent alien regime, separated by seemingly insurmountable boundaries, Steve and Tony have nothing to keep themselves going but each other.

Steve and Tony are separated for most of this but there's a nice fluffy pay off at the end. Really great characterizations and a gripping story. Better than a lot of canon stuff.

In addition to helping me find stories Jojo has been busy doing Steve/Tony art. Yum!

Okay, I've been hearing pretty much since July how that now that the series is over and they haven't announced plans to restart the anime adaptations that Inuyasha is a dying fandom. "Oh, woe!" the cry has gone out. We'll have to be less picky in our awards communities now so we won't drive away the few remaining authors willing to put effort into a thing of the past. Everyone is moving on.

My silly high at finding myself in a reference work has been replaced by a silly high of being an actual part of a major bit of fandom wank.

TwistedHilarity mentioned the Fan History Wiki in her journal at Y!Gallary which motivated me to see if I'm in there. I wasn't six months or so ago but now...

 I am.


Okay, okay, it's a bot generated stub but I feel like I'm official or something now.

I exist!

Live Journal says it will restore the fan fic communities:


In a few weeks this will be old news to most people and it will be back to business as usual. Until the next time. Maybe that won't be here at LJ but there will be a next time and we need to remember that.

I am proud of how quickly fandom rallied together and how many voices of reason there were. If nothing else we may finally know how strong our presence is here via the [profile] fandom_counts project. If you haven't already,  and you have a blog that deals with fandom even if only occasionally, go join so they can add you to the count.

It's been awfully quiet. Too quiet. Fano, who replies to stuff a lot less interesting than that,  didn't say a word about this morning's post. I was feeling slightly lonely but then I thought, "Hey, I tried posting draft posts as private only and then changed them back and changed the date to post them. What if they never got changed back?". 

So, I looked at my journal, then I went to Fano's friends page and after going ever further back I finally found that my last four posts show up here as public but do not show up at all on the friends pages of those who have friended me.


I just went through and deleted them and am reposting them as one long post. 

PS, I am way behind on reading MY friends page. Expect a bunch of comments this weekend. Or not since I'm getting the trailer Saturday and my cousin is in town for a visit. I'll catch up eventually. Really.
