11:48 pm - *gasp* A Real Post!!! (Obligatory Infinity War Thoughts)
Holy crap. My first real post in... I don't even want to think about how long. Somehow, Infinity War has caused me to have thoughts and observations and ideas that I think are worth sharing. Or at least posting for posterity's sake. :P

So... I adored it. I walked away from the theatre thinking, "Wow, that was awesome and everything an Avengers film should be, and there's so much potential for great fic between now and the time the next film is released! Fandom is gonna love this!" So imagine my surprise when I got online and started seeing all the negative reactions... *headdesk*

All spoilery remarks below the cut... )

Aaaahhhh, OMG, remember when we all used to engage in this sort of analysis of new canon and speculation about what would come next all the time?! The good old days...

current mood: nostalgic

1:15 pm - Three Squees
And believe me, squees are a much-needed thing right now.

First and foremost: Kinky Kristmas 2016 underway!!! We're got five fab pieces posted so far with lots more great stuff on the way. Hie theyself over to [info]daily_deviant to get in on (or at least read/look at) the awesome action!

Which leads me to the second thing: My own gift at Kinky Kristmas has been posted, and it is perfection!

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate
Snape/Sirius, Marauders Era, VERY NWS ART

Seriously, the artist hit so damn many of my bulletproof loves and kinks right on the head. I'd asked for rough sex/turning-each-other-black-and-blue-as-foreplay, and I most definitely got it. But in spite of that, there's an overwhelming tenderness about the piece. Teenaged Snape/Sirius rough sex that isn't at all non-con -- which is entirely too rare in my opinion. ;)

...And while you're over there, do browse through the other great stuff that's been posted -- and keep going back for more!

And thing the third: I've been completely out of the loop, so I only just stumbled upon the fact that [info]lokifan has been (or was, given that it's almost three weeks old now...) a '2016 Sucks!' Multifandom Love Meme. Apparently a few people actually remember who the hell I am! LOL Much love to you folks. ♥ ♥ ♥ Even though I'm late to the party, I need to get over there and shower some adoration on a lot of awesome people. Y'all should do the same, if you haven't already. It's never too late to squee all over somebody, right?? ;D

Side note: If you don't like love memes? Go complain somewhere else. :P I hosted one once -- anonymously -- and got lambasted by people on my own flist who had no idea that I was the one running it. Pretty uncool. In spite of that, I'm still of the opinion that spreading love and admiration is a positive thing. So there you go. :P

current mood: squeeful

Listen up, folks.

It's two plus days later, and an enormous number of us are still sitting here in shock, asking over and over, "How did this happen?!" That's completely understandable. I'm still in that state myself. But, everyone, there are some cold, hard truths we need to understand immediately.

We need to quit playing the blame game against each other. It's incredibly, deeply counterproductive. When it comes right down to it, Trump won because there are far more rednecks in this country than we realized, and those varying shades of rednecks are far more cohesive and unified than we intelligent, educated, socio-politically aware people are. And he can and will do unspeakable damage that will extend far beyond his four to eight years in office if we do not QUIT BLAMING EACH OTHER AND GET IT TOGETHER. Not in six months. Not in a year. RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

I'd like to point out that Trump has not, in fact, technically won yet. That it isn't official until December 19 when the electors actually vote. The possibility exists that this can still be stopped. Yes, it's a very slim possibility. An incredible long shot. But long shots happen. HISTORY HAPPENS.

The protests immediately following the election were a good start, but they need to continue. Every damn day in every city possible for the next five weeks. Nonviolent, coherent, and loud protests. The only way to beat this is to demonstrate that we will not quietly accept this outcome and bend over and take it. That we can be unified in our basic desires and goals. That we can make life exceedingly difficult for those in the government who would work against our equality, our safety, our basic rights as U.S. citizens.

We could conceivably convince a handful of electors that what the majority of Americans want is not Trump. And if not that, government officials on the whole could at least be made to see that we are far more unified and willing to take action than they realized and that we will not be quiet and complacent.

Maybe -- probably, even -- it'll turn out that we can't make a difference in the outcome of things before mid-December. But we can still make our voices heard, and we can continue to do so well beyond December. We can prevent a lot of damage from occurring, both within the U.S. and globally, if we UNIFY AND FIGHT. RIGHT. NOW.

You are all intelligent and informed people. You know what is at stake here. This is not just an ordinary election. This is not a "keep your head down and wait out the next four to eight years and hope it'll get better again" scenario.

Some food for thought: Trump just Tweeted (yep, he's already at it again) that protesting the outcome of the election is "not fair." Take a moment to really digest that. Exactly how many First Amendment rights does that contradict? I count at least three: the right to freedom of speech, the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and the right of the people to petition the government for a redress of grievances. But Trump -- the next president of the United States if we can't do anything about it -- cares less about the Constitution than he does throwing a temper tantrum like an eight-year-old shouting, "It's not fair!" (I fully expect him to follow it up soon with, "You never let me do anything fun!")

Also, for anyone who's been largely focused on the damage Trump can do within this country, allow me to direct you to a very enlightening video clip that succinctly sums up Trump's foreign policy -- such as it is.

Oh, and it looks like he's appointing a guy who thinks global warming is an alarmist myth to head up the EPA transition.

Well, look on the bright side. A person's ethnicity, religion, gender, or sexual identity won't matter so much once we're all living on a planet that resembles a post-apocalyptic landscape ala Mad Max...

IT DOES NOT MATTER how you feel about Hillary Clinton. About Bernie Sanders. About any of those things dividing us and causing us to place the blame on each other rather than where it should be placed. We need to be one enormous, unified front that can direct our shock and outrage where it can make a difference.


(And yes, if you agree with this, please feel free to copy/paste and spread it as far and wide as you can. With or without profanity included. ;) I'll probably repost it on Monday for the benefit of those who tend to disappear from the internet over the weekends. Don't worry; I don't intend to turn my fandom space into a political blog. But some things need to be said.)

current mood: furious

5:40 pm - PSA
I discovered this morning that my fears were valid -- that my mother is, in fact, pleased with the outcome of this election. After a brief but rage-inducing exchange, I told her that she is no longer the intelligent, open-minded woman who raised me and that I have nothing further to say to her, possibly ever.

If I'm not willing to accept casual support of misogyny, racism, xenophobia, bigotry, and dangerous ignorance from my own mother, I'm certainly not going to accept it from anyone else.

I've been pretty forgiving of differing views and opposing political alignments in the past, but this is something else entirely. I doubt that any of you on my f-list are Trump supporters, but if you are, kindly remove yourselves posthaste. As a like-minded person succinctly put it, "We are not friends."

...On the other hand, if any of you are aware of any legitimate protest movements to make this Not Happen, at least not without an enormous fight, pass me some links.

current mood: shocked, furious, and afraid

11:33 pm - PSA for Deviants!
Attn: Daily Deviant posting members!

We posted the June and July theme on Saturday. And since a lot of people tend to miss things that are posted during the weekend, I wanted to give everyone a heads up. If you plan to be writing/drawing in June or July, you'll need to get over to the comm to read the explanation and buy a vowel request a letter.

We really dig this theme, and so far the response seems to be positive. Hope everyone has fun with it! :D

1:27 am - Traumatized. For. Life.
Oh. My god. You guys. You guys. I am... For life... Traumatized... I am traumatized for life.

D8 D8 D8

Cat acne. It is a thing. I didn't realize that it was a thing until a week or so ago. But now I am so very, very aware that is is a thing.



Has that sunk in yet? Take a moment to visualize. Got it? Okay.

My cat had an enormous -- no, I mean enormous -- zit on his chin. Note I say "had." Past tense.

It must have been itchy. It certainly looked itchy. It must have felt like it looked. Because my cat came up and rubbed his chin on my nose.

And the zit... The zit. It... went...


On. My. Face.

It... It... Like... The insides of a tomato. A very ripe tomato.


...I have no emoticon to convey the actual levels of horror.

Traumatized. For. Life.

(I know. My first actual post in however long, and it's this?! Well, that's how traumatized I am!! This entry really does need a much longer introductory post about the zitty kitty, which I've been meaning to make, but... For now, you get just the acne. In much less vivid detail than I got it in. Consider yourselves fortunate.)
