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.

musesfool: uncle iroh (delicious tea or deadly poison?)
[personal profile] musesfool
Hey hey, I posted a story yesterday:

A little idle talk of this and that (at AO3)
Star Wars/AtLA; Obi-Wan, Iroh, Aang, ensemble; g; 4,050 words
On his way to Tatooine with Luke, Obi-Wan makes an unexpected stop for tea in Ba Sing Se.

I normally don't like to post fic on Fridays or Saturdays because it always feels like no one is around, but I also didn't want to pick at this any more, so here we are.

I've wanted a crossover like this for a long time but couldn't find one that did what I wanted, so finally I just had to write it myself. *hands* I have a lot of stuff in my head about how this all works - why the Fire Nation symbol looks like the Rebel Starbird, how bending works with the Force, why the mind trick didn't work on the guard (earthbenders are hardheaded/strong-minded!), how Obi-Wan could get his ship fixed on an pre-space but industrializing world (some combo of Sokka and The Mechanist's genius plus Toph's metalbending). How Aang would be familiar and different - Aang actually learns the lessons Anakin never does about letting go of attachments when necessary. I think the Aang would be both comforting and alienating to Obi-Wan, because he shares basically the same philosophy as the Jedi, but the Air Nomads have also been wiped out, so is there just no place for them in the galaxy? What did he fail to convey to Anakin that would have led to him making different choices? (I mean, Obi-Wan does eventually realize in canon that Anakin's terrible decisions are not his fault, but. He still blames himself a lot in those early years afterward.) And I thought it was a sweet moment that both Aang and Obi-Wan are jazzed to meditate together because no one ever wants to meditate with them. *hands*

And the title of course is from Man of LaMancha because I have this post-RotS!Obi-Wan = Don Quixote thing in my head, not just because of "The Impossible Dream" but also "Knight of the Woeful Countenance." I am just saying. (Possibly Anakin is Aldonza and Ahsoka is Sancho...I am not saying it's an exact match but that's just how my brain works.)

Anyway, I had a lot of fun writing it - especially Sokka and Iroh - and I'm glad other people seem to like it too!

Today, I plan to bake some bread (I'm going to use the King Arthur milk bread recipe since it only makes one loaf instead of the one I made last week, which makes two, and I don't want to deal with reducing it), maybe bake a cake, and clean out some old towels now that I have new towels. (I will keep the old towels for emergency usage, but not in the closet with the new towels - I need the space.)

I also need to gather all my tax documents to send to the accountant. I'm a little terrified of how badly screwed I'm going to be because of Cheetolini's tax scam, but there's nothing I can do about that now except hope some of the actions NYS took to mitigate the effects will help me.

Then I plan to make steak for dinner (something I almost never do at home, but it was on sale!). Mmm...steak. Tomorrow I will do pulled pork and then have that for lunch next week. I am excitedly anticipating deliciousness!

Did anyone order a dream about going on a date with Sidney Crosby? It got delivered here instead. If I can figure out how to package it, you can have all of it. (N. B. it was neither hot nor heavy, so if that's what you asked for, look elsewhere.)

In other news, in case anyone needs them, I had to find enough interest-rate calculators to figure out what the real answer to a word problem was. Here's a general APR calculator, for all your needs but with more variables, and auto loan calculator, which is more purpose-built.

I'm really glad the internet can help with this kind of thing. I knew I couldn't do it all in my head, but I didn't have a real idea of how far off my guesstimates were till I crunched numbers.

Hiya everybody!

I am looking for ALL the self harming Dean Winchester fics you have ever come across! I'm not a fan of self harming Sam or Cas, though. And the method of self harm doesn't matter.

I'm looking forward to all your recommendations :)

Notes: This isn't really a new vid, so much as a B-side or rarity. I made 95% of it two years ago for Festivids (hi [personal profile] absolutedestiny), but never finished. Last night I was like, that seems like a waste, and filled in the remaining spaces. There are a few spots that have some of my favorite editing that I've ever done, but I'm less crazy about the vid's overall structure.  It's a goofy, goofy movie vid for a goofy, goofy movie. Thanks to [personal profile] sol_se for her enthusiasm when I showed this to her.

I'm looking for the NSFW drawing of sad!Dean by [livejournal.com profile] smallworld_inc that inspired the lovely 2012 [livejournal.com profile] blindfold_spn h/c fill "Blanket of Sadness" by [livejournal.com profile] anne_higgins.

The picture was of Dean sitting in a chair wearing only a t-shirt, his head resting on his arm, his face sad. It was a pencil sketch I think. Very beautiful!

The old link on image shack is now broken and it seems I neglected to download it :/

[livejournal.com profile] smallworld_inc is no longer active under that username and I don't know her new one.


(mods, hope art request is OK since it links with fic!)

2/22/2019 Nimitz Way

I decided to walk out Nimitz Way today (I had not done so since early December, wtf?) on the grounds that it's less populated on a Friday than on a weekend, and it wasn't bad, especially early. I started just before 7 am and returned to the car at 11:30, going only as far as the second cattle gate, about two and a half miles out. It was cold, for here I mean, and I was happy to have two hand warmers. I usually make do with one, moving it from hand to hand, but warm hands help a lot when I'm cold all over, and I didn't warm up very much until I was almost back.

Just about the first thing out of the car I heard singing purple finches, so I guess Spring is here. I heard them all along Nimitz Way til the Park boundary. Surprise of the morning was a red-breasted sapsucker calling at just about one quarter mile. That's usually a birdy area but I'd never had sapsucker. Otherwise it was the usual winter birds and nothing interesting on any of the seasonal ponds. Have a list anyway: )

On return, about half a mile out, I was struck by how loud the frogs were down below the trail, where I believe there is a seasonal marsh. I can't see it well from above but sometimes I've heard red-winged blackbirds calling from there. I took a bit of video, so you can look at green hillside while you listen to the frogs.

Looking for a fic! Saw it the other day and now I can't find it! The plot was that Dean broke his leg on a hunt due to a mistake Sam made. Sam got a job busing table at a local dinner. He contracted meningitis. Sound familiar?

ratcreature: RatCreature begs: Please? (please?)
[personal profile] ratcreature posting in [community profile] fanart_recs
It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have NO volunteer reccers who have signed up for March.

So it would of course be awesome if we had some recs next month. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only ONE reccer has volunteered for April, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for March, April or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of February. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)
