Having never managed to actually finish a bingo on h/c bingo, I vowed that this time I would. Unfortunately, I've also been having some terrible writer's block. Wanting to do something while waiting for it to pass, I started messing around with some crayons and before I knew it an entire blackout bingo had formed.

Characters: Sad Bird, Happy Bird, Stoic Penguin, Angry Ground Squirrel
Warnings: Graphic violence, self harm, attempted suicide, minor character death, general unpleasantness, terrible crayon drawings

There is quite a bit of plot for this in my head, and I had thought about adding a bit of narration to each picture to confirm what was going on, but 1. writer's block, and 2. it's probably more interesting to let the birds speak for themselves and let all of you come up with your own interpretations of what's going on.

Just when I think they're making progress, Twelve figures out how to open the safe room door. Cue much hissing and scratching and clumps of fur everywhere. Thank god I was home. The door is now secured with a chair and some string, but Tucker is hissing at it on one side while Twelve hurls himself at the other. This is... I don't even know, but if it doesn't end Twelve is going to have to go back to the shelter tomorrow for his own safety and my sanity, because Tuck is angry and Twelve doesn't seem to understand that hissing means back off. Argh.

He's such a lovely cat too. Very playful, snuggly, and too smart for his own gppd. Him and Tuck would be so great together if they'd stop trying to kill each other.

I feel bad at putting Twelve through this ordeal, but I also see that three cats have been adopted from the shelter while I've had him, which means that there is space for him now and he won't be on death row when I return him.

Where:

Vanuatu, a country of just over a quarter of a million people spread over 86 islands in the South Pacific. One of the most beautiful, diverse, and welcoming places in the world.

100_3133

What happened:

Cyclone Pam, one of the strongest Pacific storms on record, which managed to make landfall over nearly all of those 86 islands this weekend. Communication lines to the outer islands are down, but in the capital of Port Vila 90% of buildings have been damaged or destroyed. Much of the population relies on subsistence farming and Pam destroyed those crops. Food and water are the biggest concerns.

What you can do:

Make a donation to one of the disaster relief funds listed after the cut. If you are unable to donate, spread the word to others. Thank you for reading.

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 )

It's that time of year again! Sign-ups are open to the 13th. My stocking is here:http://fandom-stocking.dreamwidth.org/470703.html

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.

PSA

clocketpatch: A small, innocent-looking red alarm clock, stuck forever at 10 to 7. (5 being badass)
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
