sorry I didn't reply to each of you back in the day, when I posted and you were all so kind. I was kinda too terrified to. Anyway, so now I've been there again, on a week visit. He doesn't look great, but you know, who knows. Anyway, a huge thankyou to you who gave thoughts and strength last time I posted here.

My father.

They've stopped the treatment, "for now". I'm terrified.

Pray for me. In fact, pray for him. And for her, while you're there. I need your power.

I'm sorry I'm not giving anything in return.

First, the good things:

A short story, The Haunted Author

A good, uplifting news article on gender equality

Some disturbing but interesting images, Fallen Princesses

Yes, I opted out on the LJ linking thing. Let me know if there's any news on that.


The Art Of Seduction, Giles/Ethan

Suns And Guns, Spike, Wesley

Under The Unblinking Sun, Highlander, Horsemen

And a tiny SV drabble which Tastes Like Old Times, for a nostalgic chat.

The last proper fic I posted before this batch, not including Highlander drabbles and dribbles, was on March 22nd, 2009, it seems. It was Violet Sundown, a Giles/Ethan/Xander pwp.

And now to the depressing, personal stuff. )

My father has had lung cancer for the past year and a half. If nothing else goes wrong, he will start chemo and other treatment this upcoming week. Do pray and wish that nothing else goes wrong. And that the chemo works once it starts. Thank you. I will keep you updated.

Cautious optimism warranted. Knock on wood.

Thank you.

To all of you who answered my previous entry, and those who didn't but aimed their thoughts to it. Thank you, very much. I hope your combined power would do the trick...

Can't talk much now. Later.

Please, if I have ever posted anything here or elsewhere that caused you momentary happiness, be it fic, art, links or anything,
please spare a moment to wish my father health.

LJ is now forcing people to log in if they want to read Adult Filtered entries.

LJ has removed all fandom related interests from the top most popular interests.

LJ owes me, acording to their own email, 632 days of extra userpics, which they don't intend to give me.

The list does go on. I'm not going to tell you everything. I put all my stuff here because all of fandom is here. I curse every day that people stay.

How many here would go to IJ?


I don't *like* IJ. More than anything I'd like a squidge service to be available. But it can't be, not now anyway. Still.



ETA the second: this also is a good link.

ETA March 16: Read what she has to say. That is a creepier problem, and one most of us hadn't encountered, but should know about.
sparklebutch: (don't panic)
Okay, I'm going insane and desperate, so I will cry here. It's a half-rant, half an appeal.

Here's how life is. )

What I'd really like again is a centralised site, which includes its own chatroom/s. *Misses Evan like woah*. A place where all of fandom, all of fandoms, converge, and from which they can then branch out, always with that site as a focal point.

But that of course requires commitment that I don't think any one fan, or even group of fans, can or will give. Also, sadly, in fandom there's so much politics, hierarchy, even the silent kind, that such a site has very little chance of being impartial and seen as such. Whether as a mere tool, or a fannish warm home, I can't quite see it happening.


I wanted the future, but it seems I rely on the past for ideas; content-based rather than people-based. Separation of state and religion a fan's personal journaling and their fandom-oriented material. One for the benefit of human relations, and one for the benefit of fandom as an interest group.


Also, would be interesting to have a centralised community/list such as [ profile] fandom_counts on other places, for example, as a way for InsaneJournal people to find each other and perhaps even to find similar-interest communities.

Note: Very nearly typed "fandom_cunts". That's not a bad name for something or other.

Don't let fear rule your life. And don't let others instill that fear.

Hate crime.

I can't read through this. I can't stand it. But it is important, so go there, even if you don't read every word.

How quickly fandom forgives and forgets. How strong they rise, and how fast the tide recedes.

More on livejournal and fandom in general:

YES! What she said.

Also what they are saying, except I have been saying the same thing over and over again since about 2002 at the very least (which is when I was dragged kicking and screaming... but that's another story).

I suspect you all already saw this and its brother.

LJ had an issue with me for days, in the sense that posting, commenting, uploading and everything else didn't go. It was angry with me or just sad. I don't like hurting the feelings of inanimate objects and of concepts. People, I'm okay with.

ETA: If nothing else, at least on lj I learned to make icons. People get very creative in 100x100 pixel format.

On a similar but unrelated "we get screwed" business: [ profile] life_wo_fanlib.

The UK and British academia people are boycotting Israeli academia people, half-effectively causing a ban that would get in the way of many good people.

Now they're also talking about economic sanctions.
