I have like 17 different entries I need, want, intend to and have started writing, but there's never any time to finish them (it's been busyyyyyyyy), so let's try for something short and frivolous that I might actually be able to hit "post" with.

I'm using [personal profile] solarbird's alpha-test CSS to see how it works, and let me tell you, it works like a dream on mobile. Comment threads are actually navigable! It's amazing.

The color scheme is based on [personal profile] terra's Dreamwidth Muted Stylish script, because I just don't really like Neutral Good's colors. So now my journal basically looks a lot like the Dreamwidth sitescheme, only in softer purple. (This is the color scheme I'm used to seeing on sitescheme pages, because I'm finicky.)

(I also modified a little of the CSS:
  • I added some vertical spacing between entries;
  • Since I added a background color to entry titles, I had to change the entry-title margin so the date and time wouldn't overlap the title;
  • I added grey backgrounds to comment headers to make them look more like the sitescheme (though it's impossible to make them identical because this layout has the userpic as part of the comment content instead of the header -- why?)
  • Some fussing with margins;
  • I ditched the borders between entry title and entry and between entry and metadata. They just don't fit the color scheme.)

Dear Prime Time Player,

Thank you in advance for writing in one of my fandoms. You are a superstar. My AO3 name is BridgetMcKennitt.

I like femslash, slash, het, threesomes/moresomes as you can tell from my various requested relationships. I like reading explicit as much as I do non-explicit. Don't feel you need to write a certain way because you don't. I've listed many different, varied options for each fandom below, and I would be thrilled with whatever road you decide to take.

I do have some likes and dislikes when it comes to fics. I don't expect you to use everything in my kinks/likes section, and I wouldn't want you to as a lot of it doesn't work together and/or doesn't work for a particular fandom, so don't worry about that. Just please don't write my dislikes and I'll be a happy camper.

Likes: Character driven plot, worldbuilding both big and small, alpha/beta/omega, smut/PWP, threesomes, bondings (forced or otherwise), obsession, tension, misunderstandings, subtle flirting, fluff, dub-con, non-con handholding (or whatever non-con non-sexual situation), kidfic, mpreg/fpreg (or preg in general, I don't have a particular person designated as the pregnant one), established relationships, foodporn or other non-sexual things described in loving detail.

I'd like happy endings for any fic you write.

Dislikes: Crossovers, OOC, first or second POV, character death, crack, bashing, not!fics, unhappy endings.

Fandoms: Agents of SHIELD (TV), Ao no Exorcist | Blue Exorcist, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, The Chronicles of Riddick Series, Daiya no A | Ace of Diamond, Hikaru no Go

The 1st part of the above is "I'm having a lazy day" on this rainy Saturday & the missing part is "because I had a week." A week that began on Monday w/ the dead car battery & hair cut & ended w/ a tooth extraction & my 1st eye exam in 6 years & new glasses on the way so hopefully I soon won't have to resort to NoSquint Plus to read webpages.

I haven't done a 1st lines meme since 2015! )

I signed up for Not Prime Time. \o/ I'm requesting Ao no Exorcist, Hikaru no Go, Daiya no A, Batman vs Superman, The Chronicles of Riddick series, and Agents of SHIELD. I'm still writing up my letter and optional details. Alas, so far no one has offered for my three anime/manga fandoms.

2 more days until sign ups close on the 30th!

[community profile] three_weeks_for_dw is starting up again, so I'm tagging this post with the 'three weeks for dreamwidth' tag.

I have some fics to write, so here's hoping I don't get distracted. (Spoiler alert: I probably will XD )

I think the additional memory is helping my laptop run better. Messages is still broken in that it can't deal with AIM, but everything else has been much more stable and much less prone to short freezes. I've had three sites that usually give Firefox fits open in tabs for two or three days now without getting script errors. I've got ten programs running, including iTunes which usually makes all sorts of trouble.

I more or less fell over from exhaustion yesterday. I'm not looking forward to the next couple of weeks which promise to be almost as hard as the last two weeks. I made next week harder by scheduling with Medequip for Friday morning to get the c-PAP fitted/set up. I didn't have any other appointment that day, and I really, really need to do this.

My primary goal for today is to nap. I'd like to finish making up a character for Scott's Firefly game and also sign up for Not Prime Time. I think the latter won't take too long because I can mostly just copy and paste. I'm just putting it off in case someone signs up with something I know I can write but hadn't intended to offer. I'm unlikely to edit my offers after I sign up, just because that would be extra effort.

I have figured out what I need to add to my Fandom5K story to tie it up nicely (it's fine as is. This would just make it better). My hope is that this will only add one to three thousand words. Longer would be fine as long as the words come quickly. I just don't want to spend more than a day writing the scene.

The FFnet troll has sent two more messages, this time trying to tell me that my plot has holes in it. The name on the comments is different but still a guest, but the (lack of) punctuation and capitalization is the same as is the general vocabulary. My suspicion is that they're trying different attacks, trying to see if they can come up with one that will make me respond.

Scott thinks I should pat the troll on the head and tell them that the name change is really cute in the same way that a toddler hiding behind a three inch sapling and expecting not to be seen is. I fail to see why I should take that much trouble over it.

I'm kind of curious at this point as to how many other angles of attack they'll come up with. I almost need a bingo card. Wonder if I can get a blackout?

Ride Player Nico vs Mage Mayu

I should be asleep but this just occurred to me. In Wizard we had Mayu, who became Kamen Rider Mage in a big moment that was supposed to be pivotal to her arc. Then there were two other Mages in-series plus a fuckton of NPCs as Mage in the summer movie. And Mayu didn't even get her costume color to herself like the two male Mages did! She was completely overshadowed.

Now, Ex-Aid has Nico as a Ride Player, a generic player of Kamen Rider Chronicle. They all look the same, pretty bland. Except Nico became a Ride Player after they were introduced as a concept, basically the reverse of Mayu's situation, and she's even customized her costume (the only Ride Player to do so). Ex-Aid isn't revolutionary in the female character department at all, but as someone who was annoyed by how the narrative treated Mayu, I really like this detail.

So...I'm getting married on Sunday. :D And then going on my honeymoon immediately after. :D I am super excited, but it also means that I'll be offline for the next week and unable to post every day-ish. So what I've done is post a bunch of future-dated entries, which I'll unlock after posting this. They'll be visible on my journal page but not on reading lists (due to said future-dating), hence this announcement to let people know they're there.

Dear Not Prime Time Author,

I love all of these fandoms. Please don't take how much or how little I say as an indication of me caring more or less about a given one. I also don't tend to feel that there is one true interpretation of a given character, and I'm not given to OTPs. I'll try most pairings as long as they don't hit one of my DNWs.

I've mostly requested '& None' groupings

Answer (according to [personal profile] lilacsigil): Forgive Wesley for starting another virulent plague, then get it on with a Scottish ghost.

I'm wearing my swingy teal coat today, so I'm stealth cosplaying Doctor Crusher. Bring me my hypospray, baby needs a dose of tricordrazine.

Speaking of which, that fandom meme:
1. the character I least understand
2. interactions I enjoyed the most
3. the character who scares me the most
4. the character who is mostly like me
5. hottest looks character
6. one thing I dislike about my fave character
7. one thing I like about my hated character
8. a quote or scene that haunts me
9. a character I wish died but didn’t
10. my ship that never sailed

- Classic Doctor Who
- Leverage
- Sanctuary
- Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries
- Person of Interest
- X-Men
- Star Trek: TNG
- Imperial Radch (by [personal profile] lilacsigil because that's more her wheelhouse than mine.)

Also, I must preserve the chatlog of the Person of Interest Crab AU. With images. Of crabs.

Yes, we can AU like champs. If only it was an Olympic sport )

So that happened, and now I will never forget Shaw the pistol shrimp.

Music meme:
2.A song you like with a number in the title
I really like 1,2,3,4 by Feist, but even more, I love this cover by Kiyomi Vella from The Voice Australia (S2). (Also, I am such a sucker for The Voice when the judges get really excited. Is it just me?)

1,2,3,4 by Kiyomi Vella )

Also, health FYI: flu vaccines are available in Australia (they were late coming and have been out of stock for a while.) If you're getting one this year, now is the time. If you have a chronic illness that puts you at higher risk of complications from influenza, like asthma, kidney disease, or if you're immunocompromised, you get it for free.

I had the quadrivalent and it gave me no trouble. ([personal profile] lilacsigil had it too, and her arm looked like it got punched by Shaw the pistol shrimp.)

So like... what is the deal with phrasing like in this post that talks about what this or that smokin' hot person does "to the ovaries"? sort of medical-ish, sort of personal discussion of sexual/reproductive organs behind the cut; nothing too graphic, should not be TMI for most I would think )

impoverished blueberry farmers

I had a dream with a flashback in it!

It starts out on a train, and Diego Luna comes up to me (I know right) and he says, "You're so pretty. Were you in the Christmas play?" And I ask, "What was the name of it?" And he tells me, and I say no. And he's all, "Are you sure?" And he's playful and sweet and he reaches out a finger like he might teasingly poke me in the stomach, and I push his hand away and say, "I'm not interested."

A few seats ahead of me, my mother turns around, ready to disapprove of my lack of interest in romantic pursuits or whatever it is mothers are concerned about, and I say, "I said no."

Turning Diego Luna away made no sense to me, the dreamer, because Diego Luna being cute! But in real life, nothing will make me suspicious faster than calling me pretty, so I felt like maybe I understood at least part of it.

Then there was some stuff with a law enforcement officer tied to a pole in the middle of a dusty compound populated with girls wearing bikinis and diaphanous wraps. And I was there to witness his sacrifice or something?? And there I met a tall, heavy-set Hispanic or Native American girl—not in a bikini—who would only look like me if you'd recently been struck on the head, and I asked her if she'd been in the Christmas play. I guess I was trying to find whoever it was Diego Luna thought I was.

Then the flashback!

Diego Luna and I came from the same small town! Where we grew blueberries! But the crops had died, and the blueberry bushes were growing back in straggly vines with thick, black, chitinous bark, and that was no good because the berries couldn't sprout through the bark.

I touched one of the plants, and the few berries that were there were bruised and deformed, and my hands turned dark with their juice. Diego Luna showed up at the end of the row, and I went to him and hugged him, the way you do when your hands are dirty, wrapping my arms around him and pressing the back of my hands to his shoulders, my fingers curled inward, and I told him, "We'll figure this out."

And then I left. To figure things out at college maybe? And he stayed there, to figure things out on the ground. And I can only assume it created a rift between us, and that's why I pretended not to know him on the train.

And that's my impoverished blueberry farmer dream, starring Diego Luna.
