So I think I mentioned this in one of my previous Potterversecon posts, but just in case I didn't, they had Weasley Clocks!

Since they proved very popular at the con, they sold out fast, so I ordered one to be mailed to me and it's arrived! Eeee!

From USA TODAY: UNITED NATIONS – In a bracing speech to the United Nations, President Trump threatened Tuesday to "destroy" North Korea if it does not give up its nuclear weapons program.

Is he trying to start a war? For real?

A "bracing speech"? WTF, USA TODAY.

We cannot let ourselves get derailed by the shitstorm the Trump administration calls their foreign policy. We still have to make those phone calls to stop Trumpcare.

We Won't Betrumped Again

INDIVISIBLE just unveiled a new calling tool for folks in Blue States who want to help stop Trumpcare: Calls to Kill TrumpCare. We can't call our Senators--well, we can but mine are both Democrats and they are not the problem here. But we can make calls to our counterparts in key Red States and ask them to call their Senators.

How California — yes, California — could make a Trump reelection more difficult. YES!

Atlas Obscura: Found: 30 Lost English Words That May Deserve a Comeback.

Well, well, well. I think "betrump" deserves a comeback. Betrump: To deceive, cheat; to elude, slip from. Examples: I think our entire country is getting betrumped on a daily basis. Don't let yourselves get betrumped! Curses! Betrumped again! See what I mean? So useful. So accurate.

During Irma’s Power Outages, Some Houses Kept The Lights On With Solar And Batteries. Of course, if the roof has blown off or the living room has been flooded, having solar power doesn't mean all that much. Also, we're paying to help folks rebuild in the same flood zones over and over again. Maybe that needs to change?

USA TODAY: Dear Texas, how many times do we have to rebuild the same house? (You're next Florida). It's a reasonable question, imho.

Two years before NFIP was created, the 1966 Presidential Task Force on Federal Flood Control Policy warned that a badly run program 'could exacerbate the whole problem of flood losses. For the federal government to subsidize low premium disaster insurance ... would be to invite economic waste of great magnitude.' That sage advice was ignored.

The Atlantic: Has Climate Change Intensified 2017’s Western Wildfires? Long story, short: Yes. It has.

VOX: The brilliant, infuriating, boring, hypnotic Ken Burns documentary on The Vietnam War. The documentarian’s latest miniseries for PBS is a staggering achievement — and maybe his best work. I watched the first episode. It was good. I learned new things about Vietnam and its history. We keep making the same mistakes, over and over again. This has to stop.

Oh, gosh. Once again I've let months go by without posting anything here. My own personal life has been reasonably quiet, marred mainly by the rather horrible death of my dog Missy. I won't go into the details but she did not go gently into that good night. I'm glad I was home when it happened, but I also never want to go through that again with a pet.

Two of my best friends, who happen to be roommates, were both diagnosed with cancer one month apart from each other. Both had surgery, and both are now recovering and getting on with their lives. One will have to undergo quarterly followup exams for the next five years. Life. What can you say? Some times it sucks, but it beats the alternative.

For the last few months, I have been utterly obsessed with 'Twin Peaks: the Return,' on Showtime. I had a love/hate relationship with the original series, which I watched with equally fervent obsession each week back in 1990-91. My friends and I were the kind of original series fans you hear about now: holding weekly viewing parties replete with coffee, donuts, and pie, dressing up like the characters (I wrapped myself in plastic wrap one week and made up my face with Laura Palmer's dead white skin and bluish lips, and naturally was also the Log Lady one week,too), and then spending the week chatting about all the weird clues while we waited for the next episode to air. I LOVED the first season of the show. My love for the show crashed and burned halfway through season two. After the network forced the producers to solve the Laura Palmer murder, the show went to complete and utter hell IMO, and only returned to its previous bizarre glory when David Lynch stepped back in for the last couple of episodes. Then I was like, Glory Days! The show is back! But no, the show was cancelled and it ended on the worst of all possible cliffhangers. I was so furious that I couldn't think clearly about the show at all, no kidding. Normally, I don't mind cliffhangers because most tv writing is so predictable that I almost know what's going to happen next. Not so with a David Lynch cliffhanger. Ugh. 25+ years later, David Lynch picked up the story where it left off and delivered an 18 hour S3 sequel that was so gloriously good that just thinking about it makes me want to skip around the room. I give it a 99/100 (taking off 1 point for the Audrey Horne scenes with annoyed the living bejesus out of me). Don't know if there will ever be a Season 4 but that's okay because the godawful cliffhanger ending of Season 2 was finally resolved.

Right now, all out of the blue I find myself quite enthusiastic about Harry Potter fandom again and it's all because I finally saw the movie, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'. I missed the theatrical release because it hit theaters at a point when my life was just too upside down for me to go out and see movies. I really loved the original Harry Potter books (and to a lesser degree the films), but always, always was more interested in the adult characters than the kids - which is awkward when dealing with a story series about kids. This movie series (I understand there will be five) not only features adult characters, it is set in one of my favorite historical eras, the 1920s-1940s. So, a parallel magical world, cool creatures, the ramp up to WWII, and a much more interesting villain (Grindelwald is vastly more complex and interesting to me than Voldemort ever was, IMO), and it all adds up to great fun. I'm looking forward to the sequel next year.

Speaking of grown-up versions of kids' stories, I enthusiastically recommend Ysabeau Wilce's short story collection, "Prophecies Libels & Dreams: Stories of Califa." The writing is electric, lush, and sparklingly witty. Califa is a sort of steampunk, magical AU version of California where Western magic and native American and Aztec-inspired magic coexist with history and technology that is similar to the real world. I'd heard great things about Wilce's YA series set in the same world (the Flora Segunda series), but for the longest time, the Harry Potter series (of all things) burned me out on reading YA stories for years. "Prophecies Libels & Dreams" was such a delight to read that I plan to get the Flora series now and read them too.

Dear Trick or Treat-er!

chantefable: ([bbc] omgstfu)
[personal profile] chantefable
Dear Creator, thank you very much in advance for making something for me. This is my first time participating in this fest and I am brimming with excitement. I am sure I will love everything that you generously choose to make. Thank you so much for offering to write/draw something in one of these fandoms.

I have made some prompts & suggestions, but please feel free to take things in whatever direction you like and/or include other characters. My strict DNWs are gratuitous violence, abuse and lack of consent (physical, social, sexual, etc.), any sexual situations for characters not of age, on or off-screen. Realism, magical realism & surrealism are all fine. I strongly prefer art with lower ratings; as for fic, wherever the muse takes you.

I like: historical (if appropriate) and worldbuildy detail, scenery porn, what-if AUs, original characters, time travel, ghost/afterlife stories, mythological and supernatural elements, and magical realism. I like gen, het, slash, and femslash. In general I'm not a fan of AU that completely changes the setting, but if you have a brilliant idea, go for it; I would prefer "interesting" to "mundane" AUs, e.g., in SPAAAACE yes, coffeeshop no. (Coffeeshop in SPAAAACE, okay!).

In fic: Themes like quests, journeys, transition, and liminal spaces; reflection, self-improvement, love, generosity, symbols; visual art and statues, micro and macro spaces, and tactile exploration. If you want to create WHAT-IF, go for it! Kudos to human-dolphin joint societies, atavistic tails, shark meritocracy, journeys to the bowels of the earth, inner demons made flesh and taking over, in short, any sort of soft sci-fi philosophical extravaganza.

In art: I like both serious portraits and funny little cartoons, as well as landscapes that tell a story (with maybe a hint of the characters' presence). I love interesting and experimental compositions, unusual perspectives, emphasis on textures such as hair and clothing, and scenery porn (Mountains! Trees! Cliffs with water crashing on them! Brooding ruins of an ancient castle!) and I like line drawings as well as full color. I like historical detail and obscure trivia, nature and architecture, water bodies and forests, colours. I also like woolly mammoths, dinosaurs, and space, so if in doubt, just throw in a velociraptor on a spaceship.

Tricks I would like: ghost stories, supernatural elements, afterlife stories, relationships between living characters and ghosts/spirits/supernatural entities, meddling deities, magical objects that do surprising things. Mildly spooky things. In general I prefer happy endings, but bleak for the purpose of narrative cohesion works, too.

Treats I would like: strong, heartfelt relationships, love for friends, family, life companions, romantic or otherwise, taking care of other people (when one is in charge of them, dependent on them, or in some relationship), loyalty, kindness, doing the good thing and/or the right thing, etc. My all-time favourite is the baroque theatre invisible mistress trope, which is basically Eros & Psyche – one falls for the other while their face & identity are concealed by a mask or disguised in the dark. As the fandom jargon goes, identity porn FTW. Please don't add in any unrequested background non-canonical relationship. Explicit sex okay, non-explicit sex is okay, no sex is okay, but any sex should be in believable language for that era or fandom. UST, gen, all good. I like sex in fic, but I prefer more focus on the emotions than the physical mechanics, and no BSDM or bloodplay or watersports or anything that might get a special tag.

I would prefer not to receive explicit horror (fic or art), any kink you'd specifically tag, or artwork that depicts explicit sex (NSFW R-rated is fine, NC17 showing genitals is not). I do not want any fic focusing on pregnancy, children, or with the A/B/O trope.

Now onto the specific fandoms. (If none of my vague ideas appeal to you, I assure you that as long as you incorporate things I have said I like, and avoid things I have listed as dislikes, I will be happy with whatever you choose to create.)

Remix Revival went live today, and I was fortunate enough to receive two gifts in the main collection. Behold the haul:

Sunset (The Tequila Sunrise Remix) (1220 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Draco Malfoy/Rose Weasley
Characters: Draco Malfoy, Rose Weasley
Additional Tags: Age Difference
Summary:Rose grows up hating Draco Malfoy. Then she meets him.

This is a remix of Tequila Sunrise, my vaguely identity shenanigans story about Draco Malfoy and Rose Weasley (mostly Draco's bleak despair, his midlife crisis and low-key femdom needs), and I was super thrilled when I realised it was remixed during the un-revealed period (I skim-read the tags and they pointed pretty clearly to which fic of mine was remixed, you see). The lovely creator made a Rose POV-remix, very tender and Harlequin. You like HP and melodrama? This is your jam.

Pity No More (The Closed Doors Remix) (1140 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Illya Kuryakin/Napoleon Solo
Characters: Napoleon Solo, Illya Kuryakin, Gaby Teller
Additional Tags: challenge: remix revival, Period-Typical Homophobia, No Dialogue, Remix, Soulmate-Identifying Marks, Soulmates
Summary: It hadn’t been an easy thing, growing up with a man’s name tattooed inside his wrist, even if it was in English. Too many people knew English, were learning English -- it wasn’t safe. He faked an accident. Deliberately threw himself off-balance and burned his wrist, alongside a good portion of his arm, in the fire from the stovetop. The words weren’t just unreadable, after that. They were gone.

This is a remix of Pity No More, my second most-popular Man from UNCLE soulmates AU, and YAY lovely, it manages to be even more bleak and claustrophobic. You like soulmate-identifying marks and attraction against the odds? No sweet endings? This is your jam.
