As a head's up, and it's a bit early yet, but apparently THIS is a thing LJ is doing now. Here's further elaboration.

Remember how Strikethrough started, with just two people?

Well...hrm.

I'm not really sure what to say, honestly, other than boosting the signal. LJ IS owned by Russians, so unfortunately it was likely this would happen at some point.

But...bleagh.

Title: The Sleight of My Hand is Now a Quick-Pull Trigger
Series: Star Trek AOS including major spoilers for Star Trek Into Darkness
Rating: PG-13 for swearing (look! I wrote something without porn in it! Aren't we all proud?)
Pairings: Jim/Bones, Spock/Uhura, and the ever shiny and new Marcus/Sulu
Word Count: 18,308
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] kel_1970
Summary: There's a lot of things Carol Marcus doesn't know about her new ship, her new crewmates, or her new job. The one thing she does know is that if the Captain and the CMO don't get together soon, she's going to lose her mind. AKA The Fic Where Carol Marcus Plays Yenta for Jim and Bones.
Disclaimer: The only thing I own is Carol's cursing habit and backstory. Everything else belongs to very rich people with armies of lawyers who would be kind of jerks for picking on poor li'l ole me. ;)
Notes: Full notes on AO3. Fic posted only there due to length.

So uh...

So remember how when I posted the big wedding fic, aka "To the End (La Comedie)", I announced that it was the last major and plot-driven Water park fic?

...

..........

..............................

Yeah. I don't want to say I was lying, because it was honest at the time? But I may have been premature.

Thanks for the giant plot bunny, Iron Man 3!

Ahem.

Thank you. You may now return to your nachos.

Well, mostly, I've been job hunting and writing. I have fic to post, actually, if I can stop being super lazy about editing it. Maybe I'll do that today. :)

But anyways, have a meme! The first line from my last 21 fics. )

***GossipTrek was omitted because the meme was about the first line of the fic itself, not the first line of new chapters. I started writing it a really long time ago, so it didn't make this list.***

Things that this meme taught me; I start with Jim's POV a lot, I apparently never open with dialogue, and sometimes I am borderline ridiculously vauge tantalizing in how I build suspense and intrigue with an opening line. ^_~ And yeah, I cheated a little on 17, but if I had kept it at just the stardate no one would have any clue what fic I was talking about. (I've only written one fic with official memos.)

So apparently, your friends page? Is going to start looking like this.

LJ? If I wanted something to look like Tumblr, I'd fucking go to my Tumblr. What the actual hell is your problem, Livejournal?

Anyways, I think it's officially time to start cross-posting from Dreamwidth. I'm on there, also as [profile] ken_ichijouj, and for the record, [community profile] mccoy_and_kirk is on there, too! So you should totally add me/join that community!

Mother-fuckers. Not you guys, LJ, I mean.

In the past day I've spent $100 on Nail Polish between Sephora.com, Ulta in person, and Ulta online. (In my defense, at Sephora if you spend $50 you get free shipping, and Butter London was buy two, get one free on Ulta.com.) Guys, I already have so much nail polish I never wear. Why am I doing this?

I will share what I bought though!

At Ulta in person, I bought Kiss Me on My Tulips (hot pink) and Nein! Nein! Nein! Okay Fine (a dark non-metallic gunmetal gray.)
On Ulta's website I bought Butter London in Slapper (eletric blue), Teddy Girl (pale baby neutral pink), and Shag (a coppery metallic red the color of fall leaves). I have never tried Butter London before so this is exciting!
On Sephora.com I bought Sephora by OPI's matte top coat, Sephora by OPI in A-Ha Moment! (bright white), Illamasqua in Scorn (matte black...I'm excited to try matte nail polish even though I hear it looks like crap after a day or two), Illamasqua in Radium (metallic lime green), and Sephora by OPI in Slushied (robin's egg blue).

I am trying to branch out and not just wear black/dark purple/everything by OPI all the time. I just had mustard yellow on my fingers (OPI's The "It" Color), and my friends in New York loved it. (Stupid thing started chipping after three days, which is weird because the place I go to normally takes a week to start chipping. Oh well.) I normally just buy OPI because I really like their polishes a lot, but I'm trying different brands. I'm staying high end, though, because it's my experience that with nail polish you get what you pay for. The cheap drug store brands chip like the day I put them on, but the nicer brands don't. Or maybe I'm just a big giant snobby-pants, who knows?

In other news, I got rear-ended at a stop light yesterday. I'm fine, my friend who was with me is fine, and the car has very very minimal damage to the back bumper. However...the dude drove off. He rear-ended me and we pulled into a parking lot. I told him I had called the police, as one does. He said "Oh I don't think we need to get them involved." I was like "Yes we do. You rear-ended me."

Like...I'm not stupid. If I don't have a police report number, I can't get his insurance to pay for the damage to my car. I've seen it happen to friends of mine where they didn't call the cops when they got hit and got screwed over. I'm not letting that happen.

Well I should have taken a picture of his license plate when he said that, because he waited for like two more minutes and then drove off before I could get one. I got the make and model of his car and his physical description. (He didn't even give me his name!) The cop had no choice but to file it as a hit and run. Good luck to you, buddy, when you get caught. Shit's a felony as opposed to a moving violation.

Popular theories as to why he ran: he has a bad driving record/lot of accidents or he was on drugs/had drugs in the car.

The important thing is that I'm fine and I only have two tiny scratches that need to be buffed out of my bumper. Progressive said it's unlikely my insurance will go up, but I need to double-check that with my claims adjuster on Monday.

Mostly I'm just pissed off that the dude ran. I rear-ended someone back in 2007 when it was raining, and like...I called the cops on myself. I don't understand why it's difficult to do the right thing in situations like this. Especially in North Carolina, because for fuck's sake when you get your court date, if you take them a certificate from your insurance saying the damages to the other person's car was paid for, you get off with no points on your license and not even having to pay court costs! WHY WOULD YOU NOT JUST DO THAT? Jesus Christ.

He had to have been high or something. It's the only thing that makes sense. Or driving illegally with no insurance. (In NC, you have to carry insurance to drive.) I just...why on Earth?

Oh. Also. Next Friday. Six days. Phoenix Invictus. Probably as soon as I get up that morning. Be here.

Welp.

In spite of massive cramps from my period starting, I was having a good day until this insanely ignorant person on my Facebook posted an image macro of cartoon Spider-Man saying "Well at least no one got shot at my movie."

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?

So myself and several other people called her out for being tasteless and insensitive, and what does she do? Tell us to get off it, and is all "Like none of you have ever laughed at a 9/11 joke or a Helen Keller joke."

So I told her in no-uncertain terms that she knew exactly what she was doing by posting the image, since her caption added the words "I'm going to hell in a hand basket." And then I pointed out that actions have consequences, and these were hers. And then I also told her to grow up.

Jesus fucking Christ.

Because the owner/moderator of a community owns the community itself, but doesn't (usually) own the community's content (which is created by others and so is owned by the people who post it), Dreamwidth won't allow the import of communities from other services at this time.

We aren't against community importing "forever and ever", but it's not going to happen soon, and there's no timetable for when it will happen. There are a lot of copyright and ownership issues to be resolved in a non-evil way before community importing can happen.


SHIT.

So I guess what I need to do now is poll every single member of Mc and K, allow them to decide to opt into cross-posting, and me then manually reposting every entry that's been made to my community that has permission to be mirrored on DW.

Okay.

ETA: And you also can't crosspost from a community on DW to a community here. So I literally have to ask my entire community if they want to post the same content to two different places. Man, I really don't want to ask this of people. That's making things so much more frustrating for my comm members.

So...the new comment thing?

Actually started triggering a migraine in me. I ran to my room and took my meds quickly enough to stave it off, but yeah. And also? I'm not the only one having this issue!

Thank God I did the thing to force [livejournal.com profile] mccoy_and_kirk to use a custom stylesheet for its comment pages, otherwise I'd get sick every time I looked at my own fucking community.

Are they high? Like seriously...are they fucking high?

I should be putting shit in my attic, but instead I'm going to take an hour to start mirroring Mc and K over at dreamwidth, just in case. I'm pretty sure I have the name already, I think.

I just...yeah. The default view is causing me actual physical illness. That should not be the goddamn default.

Dear Real Ghostbusters fandom,

While I get that you are 99% comprised of hurt/comfort fanfic, I have to say the rate you make Peter and Egon cry over each other is somewhat alarming.

Now, okay. It's canon that Ray is a crier. He cries something like four or five times in six seasons. That's a lot of crying for a male-based toy-driven cartoon from the 1980s/early 1990s. And I appreciate that the writers took the risk in showing a grown man getting emotional at all. And they all get choked up in "Big Trouble with Little Slimer" when they think Peck destroyed Slimer, and again I appreciate that because for the time when the show came out and for the target age group, that was a rare thing.

It's nice to see that they weren't made of stone.

But...um...I just...have you met Peter and Egon? Because like...I mean they think Egon gets killed in one episode ("Egon's Ghost"), and Peter is depressed, but he doesn't cry over it. The only one who cries is Janine.

So I just...I don't understand why whenever you fanfic writers have one of them getting hurt, the other one is in tears, and pleading for them not to die, and generally being a wreck. They have coping mechanisms and are capable of functioning if something happens to the other. Particularly if they're in the middle of a bust. Especially if they're in the middle of a bust.

Sincerely,

The Management
