LJ recently moved it's servers to Russia and changed it's Terms of Service. There's an article on Gizmodo here and on another site here. I've had some people ask if we are going to move the Comm to another site. At the moment, no we don't. But I wanted to get opinions on the matter.

Comic-Con: many fandoms, much wow

I know some people don't get why tumblr is awesome, but I think it's awesome because on San Diego Comic-Con weekend, it's really an all-fandom all-points-bulletin for tons and tons of fannish news. So far this weekend I have reblogged full con panel videos from The Walking Dead, Shadowhunters, and Legion. I've posted interviews and Q&As with The Defenders and J2 +Misha Collins. I've reblogged photos from Justice League, Blade Runner 2049, and Ready Player One, and shots of the cast from Arrow, Supergirl, Justice League, Kingsman, etc. I've reblogged pics of covetable merch, new posters, excellent cosplayers, and oh right, then there are the trailers.







I love fandom so much sometimes. :)

Deborah Watling

Some more sad news for Doctor Who fans (well, of the Classic variety at least): Deborah Watling has died, aka companion Victoria Waterfield. A lot of people have linked to the clip from Tomb, but it is such a beautiful scene, so I'm going to do it as well:



(Forgive the embed outside the cut this once.)

Victoria was a companion that I always liked the idea of more than what they actually did with her most of the time, but Debbie Watling always seemed pretty lovely, and she had a very good relationship and rapport with both Patrick and Frazer. My old telly adventures have also led to me watching her (at least briefly) appear in The Power Game, along with her father, Jack, who was a regular (a favour which she returned in DW, getting him cast as Professor Travers in two of the Yeti stories).

One week left!

I haven't been posting in a while, bad me, so you're forgiven if you've forgotten that I'm doing the Kendall Mountain Run tomorrow. I'm a little less prepared than I'd like to be, mostly because I fell really hard while trail running twice in successive weeks, then also fell hard mountain biking, and so I've been more cautious and doing less trail running than I really should have been. But I have been hiking and biking and running!

So, tomorrow I am getting up way too early and going up to Silverton (it's about an hour's drive) with a friend who is also running. Now that I've seen what the course is like (we drove the first three miles to get to the trailhead of our late-June overnight backpack) I don't think I can make sub-3; I'm hoping to come in somewhere around 3:30. But my main goal is to NOT FALL.

1) Late Goodbye by SecretlytoDream is a melancholy look at all the people the Winchesters have met and lost through their journey. But it has a hopeful ending.Read more... )

2) I know a number of people on my flist loved Sense8, so here's a celebratory vid to check out.

3) One of my favorite responses to the backlash surrounding the 13th Doctor Who.

4) A whistleblower is trying to get the Trump administration investigated for its reassignment of environmental staff at taxpayer expense to jobs they're unqualified for just to keep them from working on climate change matters. This includes addressing the disappearance of Alaskan villages into the sea.

5) We've been recording Battle of the Network Stars and while it's nothing I'd recommend to anyone, we've been finding it easy viewing during meals when Daily Show or Colbert aren't available. It has wisely, I think, chosen nostalgia as its calling card. Read more... )

(A link to the evidence post, should you need to use it.)

Reminders:
  1. If nominating characters on their own, nominate in the form "Character & None". Tags in the form "Character & Any" won't be permitted.
  2. Nominations including original characters will not be accepted.


Kings (TV 2009)
  • Michelle Benjamin/David Shepherd - This has 34 complete, English works. Multiple pairings are tagged in many of these, and some are crossovers, so it has not been rejected immediately. If you nominated this ship, please provide evidence for why there are ten or fewer valid works.


Fire Emblem
  • Flavia/My Unit | Reflet | Robin, Izana/My Unit | Kamui | Corrin, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Nyx, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Rinkah, My Unit | Kamui | Corrin/Yuugiri | Reina. - These tags have migrated. We are unsure whether they were originally nominated under Fates or Awakening.


Multiple fandoms
  • The nominations listed here which are formatted as "Character & Any" have not yet been adjusted by the nominator. Unfortunately, due to the way the AO3 approval interface works, the presence of these tags is making it difficult for us to process new nominations. If these tags remain in the same format 24 hours from the time of this post, we will adjust them all to the "Character & None" style.
    • In addition to those listed previously, three more relationships formatted "Character & Any" have been nominated under "Lamento -BEYOND THE VOID-". They are Firi (Lamento) & Any, Froud (Lamento) & Any, and Kagari (Lamento) & Any. They too will be adjusted if not changed within 24 hours.


Nominations clarifications remaining from previous posts are below (under the cut).

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (TV 2016); Mass Effect Trilogy; Voltron: Legendary Defender  )

Poetry I actually like

Yet the gods do not give lightly of the powers they have made
And with Challenger and seven, once again the price is paid
Though a nation watched her falling, yet a world could only cry
As they passed from us to glory, riding fire in the sky


I skippped out of the Dreamwidth meetup at Loncon for a half hour, making apologies to [personal profile] liv and [personal profile] starlady and others, to see Jordin Kare's filk concert. It left me weeping in sadness in places, and laughing in delight in others. I bought a CD from him afterward and thanked him for his music.

For the engineer sighed as he studied those plans
And he read the demented designer's demands
Then he called in his techs and he said to his crew
This guy seems to think that there's jobs we can't do
And parts we can't build so let's give him a thrill
We'll build his machine and then send him the bill


I'm sad to hear Dr. Kare passed away the other day. His music and his science inspired me constantly.

Happy Birthday...

Friday glee is on a mission

The Friday post of glee is where you get to tell us about your climbing-related happiness this week.

It can be a new achievement or adventure, or just that you climbed and had fun; it can be that your favourite climbing wall is expanding or that you bought new rock shoes or that you found a cool ice-climbing vid on YouTube. No glee is too small -- or too big. Members are encouraged to cheer each other on and share the squee.

N.B. Please feel free to post your glee on any day of the week; the Friday glee is just to get the ball rolling.

To enhance this week's glee: I haven't yet had a chance to watch this owing to internet problems, but here's half an hour of beautiful Torridon bouldering.

From United We Dream, info@unitedwedream.org:
The Dream Act of 2017 has been introduced in the Senate to protect DACA recipients. It has four sponsors: Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY). United We Dream asks for peole to telephone their Attorney General. The number they give is (832) 610-3896.

Their suggested message is "I am calling to ask the Attorney General to come out publicly to defend the DACA program. This program has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth across the country and it must be protected. I expect my attorney general to support the immigrant community and protect DACA."

Hello, all! I am searching for a specific Dean/Castiel (Destiel) Fic. This Fic is Non-AU and there is a lot of Angst/Comfort.

In this Fic: Dean and Cas are vacationing in a beach(?) house (I think) or possibly another house. The house doesn't have a TV or anything I believe and Dean repairs things around the house during the Fic (he also does so to avoid talking about his feelings).

They are taking a vacation due to the last hunt they went on going wrong. Dean was beggining to have panic/anxiety attacks and Cas and Sam think that him taking a break would help him with his anxiety.

Dean and Cas speak to Sam via Phone Call until he visits them once during this Fic.

They don't hunt for a while but once Dean and Cas return to the Bunker, Dean, Cas and Sam begin to Hunt again. Everything is okay until Cas and/or Sam is almost killed during a hunt. Dean begins struggling with his anxiety once again and they (Dean and Cas ) stop hunting for good and return to their vacation home for a while so Dean can heal.

I read this Fic on Archive Our Own (AO3.) and sadly this is all I can remember.

Thank you in advance!

Hi :)
I am looking for a fanfiction which was posted on archieveofourown.org, as far as I remember. It is about Sam who runs away from Dean and into a forest where he tries to kill himself with a knife.
Cas and Dean look for him but can't find him until it's too late.
When Cas finally finds Sam on a clearing he is already dead but he gets brought back to life by Lucifer...
That's all I can remember.
I hope anyone can help me :)

How Hamilton Works

You may know about this already! But I was looking at something else on YouTube and ended up following sidebar links to 10 Reasons 10 Duel Commandments is Amazing by writer/composer Howard Ho, which is part of a whole series he has done (is doing?) on How Hamilton Works. It's over 14 minutes long, but I found it fascinating, with lots of links to interview clips from Alex Lacamoire and LMM, and clips of the songs played over visuals of the way the notes are arranged.
