I wish you all a festive day full of joy and friends and family!

So far I have slept-in (hurrah for sleep!), sent Christmas texts or phone calls to most friends and family members, played with the kitty (Tuck got a stuffed fish filled wtih catnip and has been proudly carrying it around all morning), and read so much fic.

Later, there will be a Christmas luncheon and the Doctor Who Christmas Special. I'm checking in on pets for various people over the holidays, and one of these people, 1. has cable, and 2. explicitly told me it was okay to invite people over to their house to watch the Who. Hurrah!



And the fic )

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Did you know that you are awesome? And that you have exceedingly good taste? These things are both true! Another thing that is true is how grateful I am to you for writing fic for me this yuletide season. Thank you, and I hope you have lots of fun doing so.

I'm writing you this letter because, when going into a fic exhange, I find a prompt of "anything, anyone, whatever," from a stranger to be terrifying and like to have as much extra information as possible to inspire my muse. I might've gone a bit overboard on that so apologies for length. I hope it's helpful. If not, I firmly believe that the best fic is fic which the author enjoyed writing, so, if anything below is not to your taste (or if it was just too long to read through) feel free to ignore it completely.

If you feel like being a stalker, I'm Clocketpatch on Ao3. If you want more info or clarification of anything, I've turned the anon comments on, so just give a shout below.

On all of the fandoms I've selected my favourites of the characters who were nominated, but if not all of them show up in your fic that's fine. I'd rather a nice character study about one character than something that shoehorns in everyone and was a pain to write. The same goes for the list of likes (given the length of that list... I think this is probably impossible, but just making sure no one kills themselves trying).

Aka the place of plagarism this will be reposted at.

While a complaint function is availlable on the website I recommend against using it except with a throwaway account since there is the possibility that this individual is collecting emails for resale. I would also recommend against browsing the site without a good ad block. I believe that most ads only give profit for click throughs, but some pay based on page views, and we're kind of shooting ourselves in the foot if we increase this guy's profit.

Granted, there is still the possibility that this individual is doing this not for profit, but out of a desire to archive all the fic on lj. Which is a noble cause, except they're doing it wrong.

I honestly don't think anything we do will make this person stop, but hopefully it serves as a fandom wake-up call to how unprivate the internet is. I also think that there are more serious things in the world to get worked up over. I'm not particualary bothered or surprised by this person. It is more fun than it ought to be spammng their scraping feed though. Play safe everyone.

Several people on my flist have posted about this, but in the spirit of spreading the word:

There is a person who has, since 2011, been collecting public posts tagged "fanfic" or "fanart" from lj for their personal blog.

They are not posting links to posts. They are importing the entire post contents minus the username attached to it. They do usually link back to the original post. The main problem here isn't that they're reposting fic without permission (though that is an issue); it's that they're reposting everything tagged as fanfic – fest sign-ups, personal rants about writers block, rec posts, etc. This person is obviously not screening their content.

On the one hand, you shouldn't post anything to the internet without realizing it might be re-used and re-posted in ways you never imagined.

On the other hand… wtfbbq?

Since it seems to be an automated posting process, [livejournal.com profile] lost_spook has come up with the attack plan of writing posts calling them out and then tagging those posts with, you guessed it, FANFIC.

And judging by the first few posts on their blog, it's working. I wonder how long it will take them to catch on?

The Ministry of Chance podcast is using kickstarter to fund transforming said podcast into an actual film.

The kickstarter rewards level are hillarious. They're basically selling off poor Sylvester to the highest bidders.

Also, autographed sets of spoons.

I don't think I'm quite rich/insane enough to spend hundreds of dollars for a phone call, or spoons, or a London dinner date, but I'm sure someone is, and much joy to them. It's an excellent podcast though, with excellent actors, which makes me likely to chuck a dollar or two at it for no reward.

But... just leaving this here, in case forcing McCoy to talk to you on Skype for fifteen minutes is anyone's life dream. xD

If you're in Canada or the northern part of the US there's a good chance of northern lights tonight around 2 am EST.

Done for wildcard/loss of identity. It's the same picture as before in a different medium.

I got a kobo three years ago. It worked for one year and then got frozen and none of the advice going on the internet would make it unfreeze. I left it plugged in to charge for days, but alas, it was a brick. Also, past warranty. Sadly, I put it on a shelf and made a mental note to bring it to the recycling depot at some point.

Today I was cleaning things and figures, well, might as well add it to the load...

But when I flipped open the cover, it was still frozen, but the book it was frozen on was different. I've got a bit of a dodgy memory, but the fact that it froze in the middle of a recipe meant that the cover in question was something I actually recalled, despite it being two years. The Adventures of Henrietta Street is not a cookbook. Feeling a bit silly, I went through all the motions of resetting the device and... nothing...

BUT THEN A GREEN LIGHT CAME ON!

The screen was still frozen, but after two years on a shelf I figured it could use some juice, so I plugged it in and IT IS ALIVE! WHEEE!!!

I can finally finish reading the EDAs now! And all the animorphs books I've got downloaded! And portable fanfic! Yeeeesssssss!!!!
