AO3 mentioned this article on Tumblr, about slash fiction and why we write and read it. I found it really interesting. You can find it here:

To Boldly Go...

I need to screen the comments on a 1_million_words post but can't figure out how. Can someone explain how to make the comments visible only to me? I sure can't find the right button to click.

Although lemmings don't actually commit suicide by jumping off cliffs. Be that as it may, haldoor posted this so I decided to play too.

Put an X next to the ones you"ve doneCollapse )

Is that a new top? Fabulous on you!!

So apparently it's been a really really long time since I posted here. Lots of reasons for that, none of which are worth mentioning, really.

More rambling under hereCollapse )
And you? What have you been up to? Catch me up on what I've missed!

We watched the new Sherlock with the title I can't spell. I loved it. The entire show, not just the title. It was amazing and fun and surprising. Two enthusiastic thumbs up! And since we recorded it, I may watch it again tomorrow!

Happy New Year! Are those new pajamas? So cute on you!

I'm so excited they are doing the Snowflake Challenge this year. I love participating in this "challenge" which is really not a challenge but a way to connect.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

Day 01

In your own space, talk about why you are doing the Fandom Snowflake Challenge? What drew you to it as a participant? What do you hope to accomplish by doing these challenges? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I think (hope) I've participated in the Snowflake Challenge every year it's been around. I love doing it because I get to share the things about fandom and those involved that I love the most. What I really want to accomplish is some reconnection to fandom and fandom friends, and also to remind myself how much I enjoy being involved in fandoms. I also hope to get my muses to return home by doing this challenge. They were MIA most of 2015 - maybe this will help lure them out of their hiding places.

If you've never done the Snowflake Challenge, I highly recommend it! It's totally no pressure - just encouragement and good cheer.

I'm new to this community, but I've been a K/S shipper for a long time. I'm working on a paper for a college class on the demographics of fans of Star Trek: TOS, especially as they relate to the perception of the relationship between Kirk and Spock. I wanted to get responses from a lot of K/S fans so that I can get a view of at least a sliver of our gigantic fandom.
I will be taking responses up until noon EST on Friday, December 18th.
Thanks for the help!

My sister lost her job yesterday. I've sent out 75+ resumes to no avail. We are scared. There is no good time for this to happen but this time of year is especially hard. My sister said we may have to rehome the dogs if things don't change in a hurry. I cannot imagine not having our furkids with us when we need them most.

I've set up a gofundme campaign which you'll find here:


If you can help, thank you. If not, I totally understand. We'll use the funds for the mortgage and food. Feel free to share the link to those I don't know.

Love to you all.

My muses have been MIA so I'm going to give this a go. Shamelessly stolen from fairyniamh.

(I can never remember how to make one of those tiny text boxes so I'll just insert a cut.)

1. What is the biggest barrier between you and full honesty in your journaling?

The biggest barrier is that I don't want to come across as a whiner. I almost never journal here about happy things. I use/used this space to blow off steam. I should write happy and sad/mad posts equally.

The second barrier is that I'm not convinced people are really interested in my day-to-day life.

Of course, I could be misinterpreting this prompt and it's talking about private journaling. I don't keep a journal although I feel like I should. It's a lot of commitment to keep up with one and I'm frankly not organized enough to know where I've left it this time.

Uhmmm... does that answer the question?

Hello my lovelies! I hope you are all fabulous today! It's cool and rainy here. Second day in a row of all-day rain. Makes for an overcast mood but it's good for the trees and flowers.

Now that Halloween has come and gone, I'm beginning to stock my Etsy store - Crafts of Note - with Christmas items. Here are pictures of my first two Christmas pillows - one a jolly Santa with jingle bell buttons, and the second a peppermint candy pillow with tulle wrapping.

Have a great one!

When you see this post, feel encouraged to post something in your journal. Short or long, trivial or profound, it doesn't matter, just something. And if you like, you can pass on the token by copying this notice at the bottom of your post.

I'm one Hawaii Five-0 episode away from quitting it completely. I've said it before, I know. But the show on Friday does not bear even a passing resemblance to the show I fell in love with. The tone is wrong. The feeling is wrong. It's all wrong.

That is all.
Current Location: comfy chair
Current Mood: disappointed

I have a job interview on Monday, September 28!!! I had a phone interview last week. Now I've been invited to the college campus to meet the search committee in person!!!!! The interview is scheduled from 9:30 am to 3:00 pm. Doesn't that sound incredibly promising?!!??!?!?

Do you think I'm using too many explanation points??!?!?!?!? Can you tell I'm EXCITED??!!?!?!?!?

I really really want this job. So if y'all would send up prayers/warm wishes/the power of the Force, I'd really appreciate it!

I'll keep you posted on what happens!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh please let me get this job!

Because if my friends jumped off a bridge....

Saw this posted by simplyn2deep and haldoor so I thought I'd give a spin. I'm not sure I even understand some of the categories.

My results:

1 Friends to Lovers
2 Trapped in an Elevator/Snowed-In Cabin/etc
2 Found Families
4 Enemies to Friends to Lovers
5 Hurt/Comfort
6 Amnesia
7 Seemingly Unrequited Pining
8 Royalty/Arranged Marriage
8 Adopting/Raising a Baby
10 Fake Dating/Fake Marriage Accidentally Turns Into Feelings
11 'Groundhog Day'/Karmic Time Warp
11 Espionage AU
13 Loyalty Kink
14 Role Reversal AU
15 Soulmate Identifying Marks: Tattoo, Red Thread of Fate, etc
16 Reincarnation/'25 Lives' AU
17 Rivalmancy
18 Magical Connection (telepathy, etc)
19 Vampires/Werewolves AU
20 Age Difference (possibly due to time travel)
21 Coffee House AU/Food Service AU
21 High School/Uni AU
21 Actually Unrequited Pining
21 Sex Pollen
21 Fake Out Make Out
21 Incest
21 A/B/O
21 Selfcest (possibly due to time travel)

I think these results are pretty accurate, especially since I loathe most of the ones listed as "21." I don't mind Coffee House so much but it's a little bit overused. Some of them, though, I'd never write and I sure don't read them.

Hello my lovelies! You are looking especially elegant today. Did you do something new with your hair?

My muses are in a conundrum. Why? Because I'm considering writing an AU Hawaii Five-0 fused with Disney's Beauty and the Beast.

If I do this, I don't know what I'd turn the residents of the castle into. Specifically, what would Chin and Lou become? Kono would obviously become a surfboard. I would make Chin a motorcycle but they weren't invented yet. Because I want to set this AU in the same time frame as the movie - pre automobile. (Let's just say that there were already wooden surfboards during that time!)

Any other suggestions for the residents would be gratefully received. (I have Steve and Danny taken care of - of course!) Like Max? What he become?

Thoughts? Suggestions? Help?

Thank you in advance.

Chapter 3 of 3 4

Fandom: Hawaii Five-0
Rating: PG-13
Words: ~5,600
Summary: Steve continues to recover until trouble finds them, as is inevitable with them.

Honestly, I thought chapter 3 would be the last chapter. Well - I originally thought the story would be only one chapter. Ha! said my muses. Keep writing, they said.

I do believe chapter 4 will be the end of the story, once I write it. Hope you enjoy chapter 3, which ought to be the last of the story even though it's not.

Chapter 3 of the apparently never-ending story ===>
