I'm nearly hysterical with pain.

I have a sinus infection that's triggered a migraine and neither icepack nor meds have done anything.

And Amazon says they delivered my meds to the leasing office on Friday but the leasing office does not have my package. Ian said they seemed more willing to search when he said it was medicine.

I'm going to try and distract myself with this soulmate verse plot bunny I have where you only know it's your soulmate when you can actually orgasm.

It's weird and odd and I think the HP verse is best to explore it.

Remix Revival

[community profile] remixrevival went live yesterday, and Remix Madness today and I had a remixed fic in each! (I didn't until late yesterday, though; only my regular Remix and then I poked at Madness and was startled to see that it had a Chalet School/DW crossover involving Miss Annersley and Seven, because it seemed extremely unlikely that someone else as well as me had done that, and they hadn't. It had just been slipped in while I wasn't looking!)

Anyway, in unexpected Remixes, my official Remix fic is a reworking of my old NYR 2009 Dungeons & Dragons fic, via a clever device:

Among the Shattered Tales (The girl once helped remix) (1235 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dungeons and Dragons (Cartoon)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sheila "the Thief", Hank "the Ranger", Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Implied Sheila/Hank
Summary: She has many stories, but for some reason a lot of people like this one.


And in my even more unexpected Remix from Madness, I have this really lovely little reversed-POV version of Each A Glimpse and Gone Forever in which Seven turns up on a train in time to help out a young and grieving not-yet-Miss Annersley; all the more pleasing because the original is an odd little piece I have a lot of fondness for:

In The Wink Of An Eye (Each A Glimpse, And Gone Forever Remix) (819 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chalet School - Elinor M. Brent-Dyer, Doctor Who
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Hilda Annersley, Seventh Doctor
Additional Tags: Remix
Summary: On the worst train journey of her young life, Hilda Annersley meets a kind - if unusual - stranger.


I see Madness doesn't actually close till the 25th, so maybe I should have another go, but for that I might need brain and mine got used up today dealing with insurance renewal, blah blah blah. (In the usual nature of these things, the simple thing is complicated by technology being disobliging because OF COURSE and is still only part done. Probably.)

Still, I am rewatching The Shadow of the Tower, so that keeps me reasonably happy. (I even dreamt the other night that James Maxwell held my hand for a moment. He was a fleeting sort of time ghost, part of a performance that had slipped through time to where I was lying, which apparently kept my pesky inner dream monitor from spoiling things with the usual "well, that isn't v realistic, we can't have this, and WHY ARE THERE BEES/isn't he dead etc. etc." Bees = totally implausible. Timeslip ghosts = perfectly natural and believable.)

I've been really grumpy this weekend.

Sebastian peed in our closet also so that's four places he peed that's not a litter box in two days.

Since he's not my cat he's been banned from our room and I'm keeping the door shut.

Our cat is the only one allowed in.

And our AC is broken again...

So I've just been going around grumpy all weekend.

Black Sails Discussion 2x06 - 2x10

I'm putting together here all my comments I have left in several private discussions, mostly with [livejournal.com profile] machinistm and [livejournal.com profile] neery, so all of you can join in, too, if you like.

spoilery for 2x06 - 2x10 - and pretty emotional )

Then, determined not to start season 3 before I was emotionally capable of it, I watched some Toby Stephens stuff:

* Jane Eyre - BBC adaptation from 2006 - not bad, although I struggled with the contrast of him haughtily ordering her around and the deep, deep love he's supposedly feeling. It's already pretty bad in the book, but the book is longer and stretches it out better, and overall did a better job convincing me. That said, the adaptation is pretty good, and Toby is great in it. Definitely something to rewatch for rainy days.

* Private Lives - Gilgud theatre play from 2014 - Toby has season 1 hair and plays across his wife - the picture quality is mediocre, and the acting is very camp. It's a conscious decision on Toby's part, because the character is described as flippant and distant, but I was still bothered by the overacting. Buy it here for 5 Pounds.

* Vexed - BBC crime comedy/drama from 2010 - Again with the overacting. :/ Toby's character is a misogynist asshole. The humor isn't bad, though. I kinda liked it despite myself. It's on Netflix.

Argh cats.

Especially Basshole. My roommates eldest demonspawn.

He peed on my dirty clothes, he peed on the bathroom rug, and probably (could have been Boo or Mercat) peed underneath the box.

I wonder if the alligators in the pond are hungry? (Joke: I'd never hatm the little bastard... And I normally like him. Might even love him but.... Urgh.... CATS

15 Characters Meme

[personal profile] lost_spook
I haven't forgotten the other meme, but you know what I haven't done for a year? Yes, that's right! The 15 characters meme. Well, that will never do...


1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment.

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments. For example: "One, nine, and fifteen are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from four. Do they succeed?", "Under what circumstances might five and fourteen fall in love?", "Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?"

3) After your f-list has stopped asking questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

Fegredo's BPRD covers

Duncan Fegredo's covers for BPRD: Cometh The Hour were so fucking wonderful that I've been looking forward to seeing his covers for The Devil You Know just about as much as I was to reading the actual story.
And I was particularly looking forward to who would be on the fifth Devil You Know cover, because it really wasn't obvious by eliminating who had been on the first four. It turned out to be everyone! I'm so bloody delighted.

I have a headache so I ended up reading true crime Wikipedia entries. I normally read the solved ones but I ended up reading the unsolved ones and now I can't seem to sleep...

And not just because of the ice pack on my neck.

Love And Revenge - Masterpost

Written for Round 1 of the Harlequin Big Bang over at [community profile] story_works. Inspired by the following prompt: “Character A is a famous pirate captain. His only goal in life: revenge. He wants to ruin to man who ruined him. One day Character B falls into his hands. He’s the son of the man he’s sworn to ruin. During the next weeks and some difficult situations, B feels more and more desire for A. Will he be able to make A forget his revenge or will B even help him?” Of course, my mind immediately went to our favorite cop / thief duo, though this time, the tables are a bit turned ;) Enjoy!

Warnings: Character Death(s), Graphic depiction of violence, mention of rape (of a female character) and of implied underage rape (of a male character), Period-typical racism, sexism and homophobia

Not betaed at the moment, and still in progress. I will add chapters and fix those already posted as I get them back from my lovely beta [personal profile] sherylyn.

Legit just came across a guy on Match who says he wants to get to know a date in person, "Preferably deep in the woods or in a dark alley, because I'm romantic like that."

NO DUDE NO

THAT IS NOT ROMANTIC

THAT IS LITERALLY THE START OF A MURDER MYSTERY "well, she went off to meet a blind date and never came back and six weeks later they found her body in the woods"

NOOOOOOOO

(Part of me wants to believe it's an attempt to be funny or satirical, but I CANNOT TELL.)

I feel guilty. A sort of survivor's guilt.

Tampa had been phased to in the words of our mayor take a punch in the face and then Irma shifted course.

During the long night I was happy it stayed on land because the path when it stayed on the gulf before hitting us was the one that would have devastated us.

And then the path shifted. As our local paper said, "Irma staggered along the state like a drunken tourist."

And my section of Tampa was the only part still in the cone... And then even we weren't in the cone.


I was euphoric. It didn't hit us we we're safe, the eye didn't hit us.

Mum (mother in law) was in Georgia, parents were fine, mom was fine, brother was fine...

Then I saw the flooding, the destruction in Jacksonville, in parts of Orlando, in Charleston

And I feel guilty for anxiety fueled euphoria... And yet grateful my home was spared.

Mum's house may be damaged because the area where she lives was closer to the eye path when it was still cat 3 and some parts experienced flooding.

But as she's still in Georgia (leaving today at midday we won't know until later).

And the flooding isn't as bad as Jacksonville and Charleston.

We still have power here unlike most of Tampa. The path has shifted so it's more inland and my area is on the cones border.

I'm feeling better and might sleep soon.

Hopefully in the morning things still look nice.
