Yuletide signups are going on even as we speak!

As well as the three I nominated--I Spy (TV), The Sting, and Peacemakers--there are other tempting targets in the tag set. Someone else nominated Invisible Man, which is a relief. Almost Human, Sinbad (2012), and Vikings are there. Rubicon too, sigh! Space: Above and Beyond, which I recently re-watched. On the older-TV side, there's Wild Wild West. Movie-wise, there's Spy Game, Holiday (1938), Hot Fuzz, Talk of the Town, Casablanca. And so much more!

Decisions, decisions. Hmmmm.

I keep hoping to have a story to post, but I have been choosing sleeping over writing lately. *hands* I feel like I will never get enough sleep. It's a problem. And I've only redone my yuletide signup once so far, so I'm sure I'll be tweaking my offers right up until the deadline, especially as more letters get posted.

I want to find some kind of outside-of-the-house source of exercising to help make it into a routine that I would be more likely to stick to.

The main reason is that if knitting is the only real workout my shoulders get, the right one hates it and responds with cramps and agony. I can do something about this by limiting the amount of time spent knitting, adopting a good posture and relaxing the rest of the arm etc., and a lot of arm- and shoulder-stretching, but I think this would work better. Also everyone I talk to from [personal profile] perhael to my 10-year-old niece to my mom & sister is joining gyms and/or Zumba and/or yoga classes and talking them up.

I don't really want to invest the kind of money upfront that gyms and yoga classes cost, though, especially not right now when I'm in Bureaucratic Run-Around Limbo in my job-seeking plans. So that's gone on the Think About Soonish Once Two Incomes Are Again Achieved list.

However, my psychologist says he has the power to write a prescription for exercise for me that would require the public, city-supported gyms and swimming pools and things to give me a discount... I'm not sure if that would help me or not. The locals I know seem to use private ones, except my Amazonian Estonian ex-classmate who does weight training (lol, no). (Now I think about it, wouldn't The Amazonian Estonian be a good name for an album?)

When you reflect on how your country's unofficial national anthem is about someone so terrified of being arrested that they killed themselves to escape.

And he was being arrested for theft. And the police were enforcing the property claim of someone who had himself no legal title to the land he grew rich on.

And the general national sentiment is that this is a song about a loveable larrikin and the experience of waiting for a cuppa... rather than about police brutality and injustice. Straya!

Meanwhile, Ms Dhu's family would like to know why she died aged 22 in prison over a fucking parking ticket on her own traditional land. She wasn't the first and won't be the last. Here's the petition link.

Dear Festividder,

I am mostly reprising last year's Dear Festividder letter, because honestly, everything I said last year about what I like is still true. :-)

You are so awesome. Thank you for making a vid for me!

I love every one of the fandoms listed below. The simple fact that you're going to vid one of these fandoms already makes my week.

I have particular soft spots for quirky characters, chosen family, competence, small town life, and loyalty. I'm a sap and I like to see characters get happy endings. I like slash and I like het and I like gen -- I'm easy.

Musically, go with whatever floats your boat -- there pretty much isn't a style of music I can't be talked into trying.

(If it's helpful, feel free to check out my vids on the AO3 -- fic is there also -- or on my website.)

Make a vid that makes you happy, and it'll make me happy too.

Thank you!


FWIW, I requested Local Hero, Ripper Street, Sneakers, Middleman, Field of Dreams, and Sports Night. my requests, in case anyone feels like making treats )

I just signed up for Yuletide! My requests this year are Toby Daye, The Golem and the Jinni, S, Death by Silver, Hild, and Orphan Black -- one tv show and five books, hmm. Also in looking over my requests I see that I seem to be unusually shippy / looking for happily-ever-afters. (Well. I'm kind of always looking for those. But this year more than most, it seems.)

I didn't offer as many fandoms as I have in years past, and I suspect I'll go back and edit my offers to include more things. But at least I've signed up. w00t!

1. The AO3. OMG, how much do I love the Archive of Our Own. Where I can find fic to fit my yearnings. Because it's all tag-sorted. And also all of my stuff lives there. And it's easy to share things. And it is just the archive of my heart.

2. Yuletide. Which has completely transformed my experience of this whole time of year, from now straight through Boxing Day. There kind of are not words for how much I love Yuletide. It gives me something about December 25th which feels like it's mine. Oh, and it's made possible thanks to the AO3, because no other archive could handle 2000+ participants and zillions of fandoms and the matching involved in all of our many and varied requests.

3. Fanlore. Because when I forget things about fandom, someone else usually thought to write them down. And when I am fixated on a new fandom or pairing or character, if no one's written down the thing I love best, then I can write it down myself. Also there are remembrances there of fans who aren't alive anymore (sniff), and fanworks which are part of my history -- and fans and fanworks who are part of entirely different corners of fandom, and that's equally awesome.

4. Red wine. Because it's been a long day and now I have a big glass of red wine and am ensconced on my red couch and am content.

5. The OTW, which brings you three out of the four above items. They're having a seventh-anniversary membership drive (here's one of today's posts about it: Seven Years, Seven Wonders: Made in Fandom.) If you can spare US$10 or more, you can become a member or renew your membership for another year. And if you can give more than that, it'll help us (us = fandom) to continue to -- in [personal profile] astolat's immortal words in [personal profile] cesperanza's immortal words!!! -- "own the goddamned servers." ♥!

"Soul searching?”


“I hear it’s the same thing.”

Seeing Ben McKenzie in Gotham has left me with an urge for Seth/Ryan, and then I came across this and had to share. I loved the OC back in the day, but the slashy vibes were strongest in s1 (then there was Anna and Summer, who I liked for different reasons; there was Marissa who I never liked, but I could see the appeal she held for Ryan, and Taylor who was adorable). Usually, I end up reading stories set back in S1 or so, but this is a story set post-series that works really well.

What I liked most of all was how this story didn't feel like a romance so much as a detailed character study of the important people in Ryan's life, and how knowing them has let him grow into who he is. There's such a nice feeling of growth, of settling into his own skin, of painful learning from love and loss, and coming through the other side with hope for the future.

I like this Ryan, who thinks and feels a lot more than he verbally says. Seth, through Ryan's eyes, is dorky and attractive and annoying and wonderful. He's not perfect but he is incredibly important to Ryan and that's so clear throughout this story.

How to Hate a Book

About a week ago, the blogger formerly posting at Requires Hate wrote something friends locked on Twitter that made me wonder what was going on in her life. I started reading her when [ profile] nihilistic_kid mentioned her as a potential recipient of a literary award for the best fan blogs.

At first, she was making fun of Charlaine Harris books for being racist, and I thought that her view point was interesting and way over the top. But then she started writing about anime, and I just cannot care about anime.

A few days ago, my sister gave me the link to this piece by an author named Hale who obsesses over a Goodreads reviewer. I didn't read the whole thing because it just seemed so neurotic, but again it reminded me of the person writing the Requires Hate blog because she had many words about how much she hated various books. I thought that Hale, the neurotic author, would hate her. (If you look at my book reviews here, I usually spend more time writing about things that I dislike than things that I like. I use blogging to work out my grievances sometimes. There are just a lot more people who are a lot more verbose about that type of thing.)

Anyway, today the "Requires Hate" blogger wrote an entry apologizing for some of her reviews. It seems like this happened because someone exposed her identity. Apparently, she has a new book coming out soon.

I... think my car was broken into last night? I mean it must have?

Yesterday I parked just as a big rain storm was starting up, so I ran out of the car when it was raining, but then I turned back to MAKE SURE I locked it. I mean anything is possible, but IDK. I CHECKED THAT I'D LOCKED IT.

This morning I came to my car and the glove compartment was open, and the stuff that was in it was splayed on the passenger's seat (if the compartment had opened accidentally and things had spilled out they'd have gone to the floor) and the stuff that had been lying on the floor/on the seat next to the driver's were lying on the driver's seat. Namely, a pair of pink underwear that I had... lying somewhere in the car (that was not on a seat! Don't ask.) was neatly splayed out on the driver's seat.

I just... WHAT. Nothing was taken - I mean there was nothing valuable in the car anyway, but even the stuff from the glove compartment was intact. There was a speaker thing in there! They didn't even take that! Nothing else in the car had been touched, everything in the trunk was intact. None of the windows were broken or anything, the car started just fine. I... I DON'T EVEN KNOW.

Apparently last night someone broke into my car, found a pair of my underwear and decided to put it on my seat. The disconcerting thing is that I had a name tag from work in the glove compartment, so they also saw my name + place of employment? It's a little hilarious and a little unspeakably creepy. I... just don't even know. I guess it's possible my stuff went topsy-turvy on its own, due to the intense storm. But even though trees and stuff were rattled, I don't really see my car being picked up from the ground and shaken around, which is the only thing that could have caused a pair of underwear to migrate from being crumpled on the floor or whatever to being nicely displayed on the next seat over?

It's possible that I didn't notice that the car was unlocked, I guess, and someone sought refuge from the rain in it? The passenger's side was the one close to the sidewalk, so there's that I guess? And maybe they rifled through my stuff and then politely... got up and left my car alone?

I just... what even. WHAT EVEN.

1. I did not sleep in this morning because I woke up super hungry and could not get back to sleep, but I did take a nap in the morning!

2. We went to Walmart and Fry's today. Haven't been to Fry's in ages, since we don't have a car anymore and I just feel like electronics stores are not as exciting as they once were, but it was fun to take a look around. And Walmart had (among other things) Crispix for under $3! That is my favorite cereal and it's usually $5 something at other stores and never goes on sale, but this was their regular price. Too bad we don't have a Walmart near us or I'd buy it all the time (as it is, I bought three boxes).

3. Alexander came over this evening and we started a Gravity Falls rewatch. He's only seen about half of season one, and rather than try to figure out where he'd left off, we just decided to start from the beginning. Irene had never seen it before and wasn't sure she'd like it or not, but she did, so yay. :D

Hogwart arrived on Thursday. She was a week late, but a mere 7 lb 13 oz. I am reliably informed that she is an unusually attractive specimen of babyhood.

Labor was -- hm. I need to process a bit more before I tldr the whole story, but put it this way: when the details are relayed to someone who knows what they are listening to, their eyes get wider and wider throughout and they usually say something involving swear words by the end. It's -- I'm still thinking about it. Sometimes I feel kind of shitty about it, even though there is no doubt in my mind that I did my best and my best was pretty good. Most of the time, I know I was kind of a superhero, when it comes right down to it. Still processing.

But. There is a Hogwart.

Dear Yulewriter,

Thank you so much for writing me a story! I love all of these things and I know that whatever you write for me, I will love it too.

In general I am a big fan of: chosen family, happy endings, competence, characters being awesome, theology, snark and banter, kindness. I love romance; I love yearning (especially when it's fulfilled in the end); I'm happy with m/m or m/f or OT3 or pretty much anything that feels right to you given the characters at hand.

Write something that makes you happy, and it will make me happy. (I'm also happy with anything from gen to smut, though I like for smut to reveal something about characterization, about who the character is and what they yearn for.)

Please, no betrayal or unquenchable angst or people being awful to each other or grisly death or anything like that. There's enough of that in RL; on Yuletide morning I want something that makes me smile. Thank you kindly.

For those who're interested, here are the details of my requests -- nothing beyond what I wrote when I signed up, though, so Yulewriter, this won't tell you anything new.

In closing: yay Yuletide! Yay you! Thank you so much!

A theory on Twelve (thus far)

kass: Clara hugs Twelve. (doctor-hug)
[personal profile] kass
I said this as a comment on a recent post by [personal profile] laurashapiro and decided to expand it slightly and post it here too, in case any of y'all had thoughts in response.

So the Twelfth Doctor can be a bit abrasive, Y/Y? and I've been thinking about how to work with that. I mean, I realize he's not the first Doctor to be brusque, but Moffat seems to be giving us a Doctor who's actively trying to ignore the social skills he's picked up over two thousand years of living among other beings.

It occurs to me that one way to read this is to assume that the Doctor went through all of the stages of denial and anger and grief and finally acceptance when it came to his own death at the end of what he thought was his last incarnation. At the end of his run, Ten was really not ready to go. But by the time Eleven was done, he had made his peace with being done. He'd had those extra hundreds of years protecting Christmas and slowly aging, and he had accepted what he could accept and let go of the rest. And then he regenerated. Which is fabulous, obviously! But it means that he's now having to deal with all of the unresolved emotional stuff he'd basically decided to ignore or let go of because he was going to die and it wasn't worth being upset about.

It would be a plausible explanation, I think, for why he's being such an ass. Like a terminal patient who says his goodbyes and resigns himself to the things he isn't going to get to do or have or become, and then against all odds survives the illness, and thereafter goes through a period of painful readjustment where he's just not dealing well with all of the emotional stuff of continuing life. That is a thing that happens to humans, for sure. Why couldn't it also happen to a Time Lord? *pondering*

I doubt that this is actually Moffat's reasoning, though it might possibly be Capaldi's; regardless, it may now be my head-canon. Thoughts?

Wow, it seems strange to be writing that! I haven't done Yuletide since 2004. I may be slightly out of my head to sign up now, but life is short.

Thank you so much for writing for me. I'm pretty easy to please, in that I tend to love all of the characters in most of the things I'm fannish about, so I'll be happy to read about any characters who inspire you. I got into fandom for the slash and femslash, but I also love gen/friendship stories and het relationships. Characters who care about each other and about doing the right thing turn me on. I have a tendency to like the hero types best, but I also love honorable thieves, rascals, and curmudgeons. Anything from G to NC17 is fine by me. And honestly, it's been so long since I did Yuletide that I don't know whether it's allowed, but if you wanted to write a crossover with any fandom in my bio or interests, I'd probably love it.

As I'm sure everyone who's interested has already seen on the yuletide_admin comm, Yuletide 2014 is open for business!

I've hit the point where I've been doing this fic exchange for so long that I can't remember when I started or what fandom(s) I wrote in the early years. I did some digging on my computer and found drafts of my Yuletide 2003 story (Unspoken, Jesus/Judas) -- I thought perhaps there was a 2002 story which I was missing, but I checked the Yuletide entry on Fanlore (thank God for our external memory!) and found out that 2003 was, in fact, the first year. There were about 300 participants that year. Fanlore says there were 2,100 participants in 2009; does anyone know, has it gotten bigger in the last five years, or have we more or less leveled out there?

One way or another, wow. :-)

Anyway. I don't know what I want to request this year. (Nor what I want to offer.) I am pondering. Right now I'm inclined to ask for a mashup of "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" and "Waiting for Godot," but I suspect that mostly has to do with recent household entertainment. *grin*

ETA: oh, wow, and Festivids signups are open too! An embarrassment of riches. <3

Dear yuletide writer person:

First of all, I want to say a big thank you for agreeing to write a story for me. I love all the characters I've chosen, so I will be happy with a story for any request. If you've already got a story in mind, then go for it! I'm sure it will be fabulous. These are all just possible jumping off points if you feel the need.

Since it's entirely possible we don't know each other, I figured I'd give you some basics about me and some tips on the kinds of things I like/dislike in stories:

Where to find me: I am [ profile] victoria_p/[ profile] musesfool on AO3, and [ profile] cacchieressa on tumblr, plus I have a recs journal at [personal profile] unfitforsociety.

Likes )

Dislikes )

Mostly, I want the characters to sound like themselves and have fun hanging out with each other, because I love hanging out with them. Most of the characters I've chosen this year are friends, family (found or blood or work), and/or partners, and I enjoy basking in their friendship, especially if it's bantery and draws on their history together.

If it can be described by the phrase "hijinks ensue," you're probably nailing it. In all cases, if you have an idea that uses all the characters I've requested, that's awesome, but if you don't/can't, that's okay, too. Certainly my suggestions include ideas that only use two or three characters at a time, so don't feel like you need to shoehorn someone in if it doesn't work with what you're writing.

To sum up, in case that was a bit tl;dr: partnership/friendship + shenanigans = YAY!

In terms of specifics, I feel like I am really just reiterating my requests in different words (actual request details are in italics, addenda in plain text), but maybe this will be helpful (note: these are in alpha order by fandom; I really do want all of them, so don't worry about which one you match on - I will be happy with any of them!):

Blue Beetle: Jaime Reyes, Brenda Del Vecchio, Paco Tejas
details )

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Terry Jeffords, Raymond Holt, Amy Santiago, Rosa Diaz
details )

Enlisted: Jill Perez, Donald Cody, Cindy Park, Tanisha Robinson

The Middleman: The Middleman, Wendy Watson, Noser, Ida

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries: Tobias Butler, Prudence Stanley, Jane Ross, Dot Williams

Montmaray Journals – Michelle Cooper: Sophie FitzOsborne, Veronica FitzOsborne, Henry FitzOsborne

Thank you again for writing for me! I hope you have a lot of fun and write something that makes you happy. I'm sure your story will be awesome.
