APOCALYPSE MEME


The end of the world is here. Are you ready or are you going to kick the bucket? Maybe you've been prepared for the apocalypse for ages or you're blissfully unaware. You can play it straight or for comedy (think Shaun of the Dead), but please be aware that there's likely to be triggering content within so consider content warnings!



Pick your scenario within! )

Spectre Requisitions

There's an exchange called Spectre Requisitions, which is for rarer 'ships in the Mass Effect fandom. It's a lot of fun, and I've participated in it the last two years.

Anyway, I seriously lucked out on my gifts this year, so I need to flail about them a little. I know that I have some Mass Effect fans over here on DW, so maybe some of you will of interest.

First, for a treat, I received a lovely piece of artwork. ♥ I absolutely adore F!Shepard/Garrus/Tali (to the point that 15% of the works on the AO3 about that relationship are fics by me), so I was absolutely thrilled to get the notification for that.

But my actual gift really wins everything. Because someone wrote me 22k words of Ashley/F!Shepard/Kaidan, based on a prompt that I've included in various exchanges for something like three or four years now. It's amazing, and you should totally go read it if you're even remotely intrigued by the idea of that relationship.

Hello! ♡

MONSTER KINK

[personal profile] tabiya posting in [community profile] bakerstreet


The monster is the other, the grotesque reflection of humankind. What lives in darkness, and what frightens us. They may be horrific in appearance or beautiful in their lure, but nothing conceals that they are different from us, and thus terrifying.

So perhaps union with such beings is the greatest death wish and titillation.
Perhaps one is already one of these creatures that live beyond the pale of humanity. Or maybe a person suddenly finds themselves transformed. Or perhaps one may find themselves the lover of a monster, willing or not.


This is a meme dedicated to the kink of sex with monsters. If your character is already monstrous, well here's a meme dedicated to them! You may chose also for “body horror” where a character finds themselves transformed into one of the creatures below. Or perhaps you prefer an AU where they were always monstrous. Or perhaps you prefer your character to remain as they are, prey for what lives beyond humanity.

Warning: This is a meme intended for hard kinks such as (and not limited to): non-con, dub-con, vore, gore, snuff, bloodplay and bestiality (depending on how animal-like your monster is). Prompts and logs may be extremely triggery for rape and sexual assault. While players are free to opt out of kinks and set their own limits and boundaries it is to be understood however this meme will likely be more extreme than most. Thus this is a warning to the casual reader.


Show me what you got. ♥ )

So, this... happened:



Went on a fridge-pickling rampage and did some tinkering to an initial recipe to rebalance it more to my liking:


  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp salt


Mix together and heat/stir until sugar dissolves. Pour over 2 cups cut-up cucumbers and bung in the fridge. Will allegedly keep for a month.



One notes that at current exchange rates 2 cups = +/- 1 cucumber. That big one on the left, for example, which I gave away to more responsible picklers than myself, would have been at least 3 cups.
cyprinella: Picture of my dog Greta with a big doggie grin and her tongue hanging out (Greta yay)
[personal profile] cyprinella

It’s been about a week to the hour since I came home early from work. Greta got up to greet me. After I bustled around the house a bit, I noticed that she was standing in one place staring at me. I thought she wanted up on the couch but wasn’t feeling up to jumping so I lifted her up. She sat there for a minute and then oozed slowly off to lay on the floor and pant. Her tail never wagged when I said her name. That’s when I realized it wasn’t good.

I’m gonna spare everyone the hours of trying to get a hold of my husband while crying and then waiting for him to get home, all the while exchanging text messages with A. who had gone through similar stuff recently and was an excellent support. We got Greta to the emergency vet and they confirmed that her tumor had started bleeding into her abdomen. One overdose of anesthetic later and she was gone.

I miss her dearly. My house is too quiet while trash thieves and children on bikes pass unchallenged. My bed is too big, my couch too empty. There’s no (non-poop fountain) dog here to eat my carrots, cheese, and crackers. It’s been a rough, sad week.

I’m glad we have Zille here. Her solution to everything is “Throw a ball.” It’s a good distraction. And by god, she’s an easy dog, which is something you could never say about Greta. But I don’t think she could have taught me nearly so much about dogs as Greta. I’m a better person for Greta being in my life.

I’m going to end this three pictures that I think encompass how I’ll always think of her: Checking to see if the dinner I was eating was for dogs with her tail a blur of hopeful wags, snuggling with me on the couch, and telling boats to fuck right off. I’ll miss you, Greta-face.

[personal profile] fueschgast
Two weird things happened during the LoM rewatch I just had: 1. I actually kind of like Gene now! And 2. I noticed that he's actually nice to look at. And which happened first? Possibility A: Did I realize he's attractive and so I cut him some slack? Or B: Did I find his personality less ugly and that has made me find his face less ugly?

Either way, the thing that happened first had to be brought on by something. Possibility B makes more sense to me (because this is how it usually works for me), though I can think of absolutely no evidence for this in this case. I have no idea why my opinion of Gene would suddenly improve! He's still not my sort of person.
For possibility A I can think of only one potential cause (but hey, that's still more than possibility B has going for itself): that maybe Gene has become somewhat attractive to me because the character and I are a bit closer in age now. Though there's still something weird about that: my last rewatch was only a bit over a year ago.

I've just started rewatching Ashes to Ashes and I don't know if I realized that during my previous viewings, but A2A!Gene is a bit different from LoM!Gene. He's gotten classier in looks and as a police officer. Gene being more professional gives me feelings: He's learned something from Sam. ♥

Oh hey, the good thing about my generally improved opinion of Gene is that now I'm finally on board with Alex & Gene's UST.

1. Look out the window and see how many demonstrators there are and how well armed they are. If you can't see them from there, go where you can. Take a picture with your phone - if you don't have a cell phone, get your aide to do it. Estimate the number of people in the group, their general ages and level of organization, and the visible armaments present. Is it signs on wood, not cardboard, posts? Is it flags on wooden flagpoles? Clubs? Swords? Is it pistols? Shotguns? Semi-automatic weapons? You should be able to tell from the photo. Are there insignia or symbols present? What groups do they represent? What is the goal of those groups?

1a. If there are fewer demonstrators than your available police and with less-able weapons, send the police to keep order. Or even if there are a few more but they are not heavily armed.

2. If there are more demonstrators than you have police, or they are better armed (though with all the gifts of military weaponry to local police groups this seems unlikely), get on the phone to call your State Police, local station or substation, and inform them of the situation and ask them for help. State police are well armed, generally extremely well trained, and just the people who should be there making sure things stay calm and the different groups of demonstrators stay clear of one another.

3. If for some reason (I cannot think of one but perhaps one exists in some alternate universe) you cannot call the State Police for help (or, in Virginia, Massachusetts, Kentucky and Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth Police), get on the phone to the governor and ask for the local branch of the National Guard to be mobilized to protect the people of your constituency.

Dear mayor/supervisor/top elected official, it is your job to make sure that peaceful protesters are not beaten down either by police or by armed insurgents who consider themselves protesters although by being armed and hostile they do not come under the coverage of the First Amendment. It is your job to keep people safe. If you don't call out adequate police/state cops/Guardsmen, you are failing your job and your people, and you do not deserve to be in office.

Is that clear???

[tumblr.com profile] plaidadder: Three Democratic members of the House have introduced a censure resolution.

You can read the text here.

Censure is a formal reprimand. It is not legally binding, but it is rare, and Sends a Message. MoveOn.org originally organized around a campaign to get Congress to censure Clinton instead of impeaching him.

This may be an attempt to accomplish something less difficult than impeachment; or it may be a trial run to see how many Republicans are ready to jump from the Trump Train.


ETA: Politico: Pelosi endorses censure of Trump over Charlottesville response -- apparently at least 79 Democrats have signed.

Not directly Charlottesville-related, but interesting and could be worth asking your reps to support:

H.R.1987 - Oversight Commission on Presidential Capacity Act

To steal Wikipedia's explanation: "This bill would replace the Cabinet as the body that, together with the Vice President, determines whether Section 4 should be invoked. Under the bill, an eleven-member commission would conduct an examination of the President when directed to do so by a concurrent resolution of the Congress."

(Which, basically, shifts the power to forcibly 25th-Amendment the President back towards Congress to a greater degree, as opposed to depending entirely on the Cabinet which that President apppointed.)

My cellphone apparently has decided to charge only very slowly, and I can't count on receiving calls or text messages on it. I will pay more attention to my landline phone and use my laptop to check my email.

If this doesn't resolve itself by the end of the weekend (crap, BOTH my electronic gizmos will be sick!) I'll have to take them to Verizon and the Apple Store respectively.
