Just a quick one to say that I'll be largely AFK for the whole of June because things are so busy at work. I should be able to keep up with fandom commitments no problem, but anything else may need to wait.

If there's anything you want me to read, poke me.

January Challenge 2014: Day 14 Commissions

Signal boosting this because ink_in_hand is a brilliant person who makes truly lovely art.

Alright, so I think I mentioned during my cat posts that I've been without reliable transportation for a while. Well I've got an update on that. Since this time last month my car’s been at the mechanic, refusing to start with any sort of predictability. Now I’ve got a great mechanic so this isn’t an issue with them, they’re actually cutting the cost some for me because this has been a such a mystery problem. It's been an issue that has plagued me the last few winters and just now has it been figured out.

Problem is, even with the discount, it’s still going to cost me $740. I wasn't planning on opening commissions for a while yet, but right now I need to. Please see below for the details of what I'm offering. Now, since I am strapped for cash, I am willing to be flexible with what is added to any one piece before adding to the price.

Commission info under here...Collapse )

Morning all :) This one's for the writers.

I'm thinking of reviving crack_the_wip, and running a WIP-finishing challenge. I'm not sure what shape it'd take yet, but the emphasis would be on support and encouragement to finish works in progress (and perhaps helping match people with beta readers, but only if they wanted).

Anyone interested? Thoughts totally welcome :D

Turns out I was a little premature...

Shadow ship
My phone lives in almost all the glorious ways I need it to. But... the speaker's dead, so I can't actually use it as a phone.

At least I can still use it for email and Twitter, and basically everything except hearing someone I've phoned.

Because there are a few Judge Dredd fans on my fList who aren't into my main fandom, I thought I'd link the movieverse Dredd flashfic I wrote for Yuletide Madness here :)

Hunch, rated R, contains non-graphic description of a murder scene, and details from the comics imported into movieverse.

Dredd arrives at a crime scene only to find something he didn't expect. Acting on a hunch, he calls in Anderson.

Dear anon who sent me a v-gift, thankyou so much! <3 I've been ill with a head cold and throat infection, and that really cheered me up :)

I'll make some proper fic posts when LJ's working again.

Omega Rising by Jess Meats

A friend of mine has a kickstarter going for her latest book.

If you're into SF set in England with female main characters, please check it out:

* * *

I haven't had much time to read anything on the Yuletide archive yet aside from my gift, but I did read this shortly before I fell asleep over a Candle Cove fic:

Monsters, Inc. (4773 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Cabin in the Woods (2011)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Original Characters, Original Female Character, Original Male Character, Fornicus: Lord of Bondage & Pain, Angry Molesting Tree, Kevin
Summary: A collection of vignettes about the Organization in charge of preventing the end of the world and the monsters they need/hate/love/become/really don't want to see having sex.

This a great story, funny and very well-written. If you liked the film at all, I think you'll like this.

Yuletide squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Shadow ship
Forgot to turn off my alarm, so I was up at 6am. And I'm glad I was, because I caught Yuletide going live and OMG I got such an awesome story! :DDDDDDDDDDDD

Epic Anderson-centric Judge Dredd genfic with robots and comics-verse fansquee and fighting and humour and yay! If you like Judge Dredd at all (comics or movieverse), I think you'll like this.

* * *

(I was going to read more fics now, but judging by the sounds coming from downstairs my parents' dog might just have thrown up in the kitchen. And I appear to be the only one awake. Ah well! Merry Christmas!)

This one's for anyone in any fandom

Shadow ship
Gen in January claims are still open!

It's a multi-fandom low stress genfic challenge.

First up, I'd like to signal boost this fundraiser for eerian_sadow's dad, to help get him hearing aids so he can continue in work.

As some of you know, my step dad is registered blind. He has a very small amount of vision, essentially limited to differentiating light and dark. He's lucky to live in England, where the state is obliged to help out (even if it does try to screw him over occasionally). He gets a white stick and visual aids provided, significant help towards the ridiculous price of his glasses, free travel on public transport in the region where he lives, and financial support. I just can't comprehend how shitty it must be to have a sensory impairment and live in a country where (as far as I understand it) there is no mandatory government support, and where employers are not forced by law to make all reasonable accommodation.

So yeah, that's why I'm signal boosting this.

* * *

Secondly, and on a completely irrelevant note, some blather about Rescue Botsover here.

For the Combaticon fans of my fList

TF g1 Combaticons raining mechs
We've got a one-sentence-fic challenge going on at combaticons. Should be fun, quick, and hopefully generate lots of prompts and loads of cool microfics. Come join us! <3

This one's for LARPers and everyone else who likes beautiful things and awesome kit.

Jolly Dicey has some gorgeous new kit up, some of which was inspired by Empire (the PD LARP). Go see, the pretty is soooo worth it.

(On a completely different note, my fucking left tragus piercing has come adrift again! I'm getting fed up with this. No idea where the ball went. Here goes.)

Anyone interested in this?

The H P Lovecraft Chronicles - Friday, 05/10/12 - 07:45 PM

Harrogate Theatre
Oxford Street
Harrogate, North Yorkshire

A friend of mine has three spare tickets, due to a crazy mix up in dates. £15 per ticket - which is what she paid. Send me a PM if you're interested in taking one, two or all of them.
Shadow ship open for shenanigans!

I'm blaming macboris because it is totally his fault kinda 50/50 and I feel like scapegoating.

The party will be open FOREVOR, and I'll probably pimp it intermittently.

Dredd 3D

Shadow ship
Fuck yes.

That was the Dredd film I've been waiting for.

Cut for length and mild non-plotty spoilersCollapse )
