ETA: It's January 2017 and I realize I've been forgetting to update this post. And is there any point to it, when it mostly links to AO3, which has multiple sort options? I spent a lot of time setting it up, as it seemed the thing to do, but if no one responds to this update, I'll probably take the post down in a few months. I'm really into eliminating unnecessary work for myself. Elayna

I should get up and do things but then I would have to disturb the cat on my shoulder and the other cat on my thigh. Both of my boys who moved in from the backyard are sleeping on me.

I have thought of long posts about the horrific massacre on Monday, but it all feels so frustrating, that we keep having these same arguments and will keep having these same horrors until somehow we get a handle on our obsession with guns. Maybe someday I'll write something up to get it out of my system but not yet. I am grateful that my Vegas friends are all okay.

I started crying when I saw the news about Tom Petty, and then the several hours of 'he's not dead yet, but he's clinging to life and probably brain dead' was distressing. I've been listening to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers since high school, and the Traveling Wilburys were great. I am grateful for all the fabulous music Tom Petty made and am sorry there will be no more. And so sorry for his family and friends. 66 is too young.

I am grateful we're easing into autumn weather. I put my sheepskin slippers on for the first time this morning. And when I disturb my backyard boys, will put them back on. My toes are cold.

I watched the first episode of The Gift and thought it was excellent. But am feeling weirdly ambivalent. I'll watch a couple of episodes and will see how it goes. I don't know that I'm in the place to enjoy an oppressed people constantly under attack and barely surviving each week.

I was amused to see Tim Russ in a small role on Criminal Minds this week as a psychiatrist. Apparently black ex-Star Fleet officers make good psychiatrists, since Michael Dorn also had been one on Castle.

Seriously, my toes are cold and the cats will go back to sleep without me.

Las Vegas peeps, you're all okay? Caly, De, Sian?

I'm assuming there is zero chance Vegas Christy would ever risk the chairs of outdoor seating, given her back problems.

I watched The Inhumans last night. I don't know the original canon at all, but when I set my DVR, I did the series recording option. Marvel, show about people with powers, worth at least giving it a few episodes, right?

After I finished watching, I went back and deleted the series recording, that was my opinion.

I do have to wonder if things are different in the original canon, that people who know it would expect to see other aspects show up in the series, that just weren't obvious to me? 'Cuz I do not understand, in this day and age, why Marvel thought anyone would enjoy that show.

this gets political, be warned )

I really need to switch around my icons on DW. I need my 'bzuh?' icon.

There was a cute internet story about a groom who leaped into water to save a struggling child, completely drenching his wedding clothes. And of course I thought about John and Rodney, getting married on Earth so that people like the Millers and John's brother could attend. It's maybe at a club, or some nice place with a grassy outdoors and a gazebo for the minister and wedding couple to stand in front of. John and Rodney are in suits, though John's is black and Rodney's is a dove gray. They're posed for various pictures before the wedding, because they think not seeing each other before the wedding is kinda ridiculous, and besides, it's polite to get that stuff out of the way. They've even posed for one on the bridge that goes over the babbling creek, by the decorative white railing. Radek is the photographer, of course, occasionally tilting up his glasses and squinting at the screen on his huge digital.

Guests are starting to arrive, Sam and Teyla and Jeannie in nice dresses, the men in casual suits, and someone fusses (Jeannie, right?) that they shouldn't be hanging around and chatting to the guests, they should go inside and not see each other until they come out for the ceremony. But John hears a noise and looks over and realizes a child is struggling in the water, so he wades right in to grab him. The child isn't big, but he's squirmy, and John slips, holding up the child, but getting thoroughly drenched, before he reaches the shore again. Ronon whips in and grabs the child before Rodney can, so at least Rodney doesn't get all wet.

At first I thought John was ready to get married in wet clothes, because the minister is on a deadline and needs to leave for the next wedding. But then I thought no, Jack would marry them. But Generals don't have inherent marrying powers, do they? So probably it's Caldwell marrying them, because he's a ship's captain and it counts even on land. Oh! Or Sam? She's a ship's captain too. So there's no time frame. John squishes off to find something to change into, and returns in jeans and a white button down shirt with a... I'm trying to say Nehru collar, what do I mean? And no shoes, because I find bare feet sexy, and the grass is very pleasant and ticklish on John's skin.

Rodney doesn't care that the wedding pictures themselves will look strange. He loves his man for the reckless idiot he is, and gives him a kiss though someone (Jeannie again?) scolds him for kissing before the wedding.

Everyone sits down on the folding chairs. The sun is warm but not hot, just perfectly pleasant. Someone (Vala? Daniel?) has a speaker rigged to a phone and plays the wedding march. John's hair is still wet but he tousled it a bit and it sticks up as it dries in the sun. The ceremony is brief but moving, then everyone enjoys an excellent meal inside the clubhouse, with Maddie and Torren regularly tapping their knives on glasses (they're drinking Martinellis) to make Uncle Rodney and Uncle John kiss.

It's a nice thought.

On a somewhat related note, Dad, brother, his girlfriend, and I went to the Battle of the Big Bands this afternoon, with one band playing the music of Glenn Miller and the other Tommy Dorsey's. It was hosted by some guy who played Rod Remington on Glee, which is not at all a character I remember. A host at a musical competition, probably, he had that look. Excellent swing music, both bands did a great job. I know more Glenn Miller then Tommy Dorsey. Dad's favorites from that era are actually Benny Goodman and Count Basie.

But so! They started with the kind of music that makes me picture swing dancing where one partner is constantly flipping the other up and around and over his head. I think I could only fanfic this if the pairing was Qui/Obi. My brain needs a height disparity to picture the moves.

Before the last number before the intermission, the host announced that there was a 100-year-old veteran in the audience, and also one of the five survivors of the bombing of the US Arizona at Pearl Harbor, and there was suddenly a standing ovation for these gentlemen. I confess, i got a little teary-eyed. So I thought of elderly John and Rodney at a performance, and it is announced that the two heroes of the final battle with the Wraith over Earth (the battle would need a name, what would it be named after?) are in the audience. John slouches into his seat but Rodney makes him stand. Rodney remembers every second of that hellish day, and how John's decisive commands, and his own frantic repairs to the ship (what name?) saved so many lives and ended the Wraith scourge. And goddamnit, even if it was a couple of decades ago, people should appreciate John. And him, of course.

Anyway, back in real life, the host and the female singer went into a duet on Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree, only with John and Rodney, they'd be watching... they'd be watching... the battle of 80s punk vs 80s pop! And I'm listening to both the apple tree song on the stage and hearing Our House by Madness in my brain. I had to push out the Our House, it was too clashing.

(But I've got it on youtube now.)

We ate dinner at Cattleman's afterwards. I ordered a lemon drop and the waitress asked me if wanted the regular or the raspberry. Why is this even a question? If I wanted a raspberry drop, I would have ordered a raspberry drop. Give me the pure citrus that kills Rodney McKay! I think this is the only drink on which I've based a fanfic, it shall always be a favorite of mine.

My brain too often goes into depressive places. I like these strange bunnies hopping through my brain, they amuse me and make me cackle.

Anyway, that was a massive purge but now I think I shall sprawl on the couch and give The Inhumans a try.

OMG, LIAM WAS ON THE ORVILLE.

Just as a recording from the past, but still... Liam as a space captain, yum.

And Charlize Theron is guest starring next week. Wow, they must be paying serious money for movie stars. Or calling in significant favors.

Anyone watching The Orville? I've seen the three episodes but am still waffling a bit. I have heard of Seth MacFarlane but never watched anything he's done. The humor, especially in the first episode, has been what I expected, pinging between irreverent and crude. I like the former, could do without the latter.

It is shaping up to be more of a Trek show, and dealing with serious issues. And there have been variations in the dramatic approaches Trek shows have taken to tackling difficult issues. Classic Trek, Kirk could redo entire societies and fix all their problems with a good brawl with the world's leader. I loved classic Trek for that enduring belief that solutions were always possible.

ST:TNG was not always so optimistic. I remember the episode (I'm a bad fan, I don't know the title) where Crusher is kidnapped by freedom fighters/terrorists who are using a personal teleportation device, and she determines that device is causing their health issues, but they refuse to stop using it, as it is their only advantage against the dominant culture. The ST:TNG crew rescues her and then... (as I recall, it's been a long time)...they leave. It seemed a realistic ending, and something of a commentary on the Middle East, that no, America, you can't stumble into a situation you don't understand well, and fix it. But mostly I remember that sense of ... huh. Wow, that's a bummer. Where's Kirk? Kirk woulda fixed this and left those two groups on the way to a happy bonding.

I was pleased that Kasidy Yates from Deep Space Nine is a regular, good to see her again, and that Bashir's father had a guest role in the pilot. It was a mini-DSN reunion, yay.

Thank you to everyone who offered sympathy on my last post. I'm feeling much better now. Spent a long weekend in the bay area with good friends, hanging out and talking.

The summer weather was miserably hot here, but the temperature has suddenly dropped. Fall is not quite here, it's supposed to get hot again, but right now, it feels deliciously cool. I'm ready for leaves dropping and pumpkin foods. The cats started sleeping on the bed again, only two, one on each side of my hips, because if you can't stop The Person from rolling over, what is the point of sleeping on the bed?

I'm hoping to spend some quality computer time this weekend and catch up on comments, but first I must spend some time on my neglected garden. Just... hi!

TMI... So I discovered this week that if you spend 6-7 hours in a haze of short naps interspersed with vomiting or dry heaving, depending on whether you think you're done and decided to risk eating or drinking again, then when you recover from that haze, some basic functions, like laughing, coughing, and sneezing, will be incredibly painful because you will have strained your back muscles. In fact, they will be difficult to finish at all. Sneezus Interruptus.

I was really doing fine without this knowledge. Ignorance can be bliss.

I'm very grateful that I'm off tomorrow for a long weekend with friends and expect to do nothing more strenuous then maybe a stroll around the block. And some mild stretching.

I think of fandom as being very liberal, which is of course, not entirely true, as fandom is a collection of many, diverse people, some of whom I know to be conservative. But it still surprises me, this group of people who constantly champion equality, when I run across one of those fics set in an AU where slavery, or sometimes indentured servitude by contract, is an established part of the culture. Sometimes it's BDSM, and of course always sexual, with a large amount of non-con. I keep expecting one of them to really deal with slavery as a cultural issue, and a bad thing, but I've never come across one. I mean, it's a bad thing for the slave, and sometimes the owner is accommodating to the slave, and recognizes it's not a great situation, but I keep thinking I'll see one where the slave and owner start a revolution, but no, the fic tends to focus on the relationship and the couple being happy and in love at the end, ownership status unchanged.

I haven't seen a ton, but enough that it seems to be its own little category. I have read a number of them, though tend to be frustrated, as the slave half of the OTP is usually OOC-meek, and the owner is occasionally a total douchebag. If it's too much, 'who are these characters?' I give up.

It is fiction, and fiction is fantasy, and does not necessarily reflect the author's desires. I don't read underage fics thinking that the writer is a pedophile, etc. But I have a hard time wrapping my head around this category. Fandom is so vehement about the flaws in this world, and then creates these worlds that are absolutely heinous. I just find it perplexing.

Weirdly, it's an inconsistency that makes me think of my work, where we regularly go through these personality tests, because we should all value different characteristics and use our awareness of them to work better together. I'm a gold in one, a perfectionist in another, an Introvert-something-something-something in another. And yet all our job opportunities list desirable qualities of confidence and a good sense of humor. I want a job opportunity that admits the need for a detail-oriented introvert who wants to be left alone to do her work. If we do actually value all these different types of people, occasionally we should want to hire one, right?

Some days it seems like there is nothing certain in life except inconsistency.

My 8 year old niece has been doing karate for several months now, I'm not sure how long.

Tonight she stretched out with her hands on my knees and started doing push ups... the kind where her hands came completely off my knees and she clapped them together each time.

I didn't know whether to be inspired or jealous. Both, I think.

I may be a little liquid.

The niece and nephew spent the afternoon, playing with my Legos and on my devices. (I was not liquid then.)

At one point, my 8-year-old niece said, "Aquaman's tasty."

And I thought, I agree, but she seems a little young yet to bond over Jason Momoa's hotness. So I just questioned, "Aquaman's tasty?"

"I"m a shark," she said. Oh yes. She'd downloaded a game onto my Ipad where she's a shark eating various ocean creatures and people. She showed it to me once. It's kinda gruesome. My mom signed a permission slip when we were in grade school, that if we wanted to check out library books from the adult section, we could, 'cuz she figured that if we were old enough to want to read something, we were old enough to deal. So I reminded myself of this when she showed me how much she loved being a shark chomping people in two. Can I be less progressive than my mother in the 1970s? So now I know, Aquaman is in the game, and he's tasty.

We had family dinner at Dad's for Labor Day, with the BIL's parents and my brother's girlfriend also attending. Smokey and the Bandit came up, though now I don't recall how. Brother remembered it as Carroll O'Connor, to which I said a flat, "No," though Dad was the one to say, "Jackie Gleason." I said, "And Paul Williams," which was WRONG, he was in Smokey II and III, but not the original. But I did accurately remember Sally Field and Jerry Reed as the Snowman, which just made everyone look perplexed.

And I was the only one who remembered when Grandma "accidentally" bought the Cosmopolitan with the naked Burt Reynolds. For all that I feel like I was too young to regard Burt Reynolds as a sex symbol, only saw him as a comic actor, he seems to have much more of an impact on me than my older siblings. It's funny, what different memories people have and what small variations in age can make.

I'm still liquid but all the cats are in, so the flap is shut for the night, and I'm going to see if I can get my contacts out. And if I can't, yay for disposable.

I watched An American In Paris yesterday, which I had seen before, probably 20, maybe even 30 years ago. I did enjoy it very much again, but it's interesting (and a little depressing) to evaluate cultural history with a new mindset. There are things that I wish would have been done differently. And then I woke up with a slashy head canon tag scene, which made me very happy.

Do I need to get cut tag for spoilers for a 60 year old movie?  )

Anyway, it is miserably hot, though not quite as bad as yesterday, but fires are burning nearby, so the air quality is horrible. I think it's time to lie on the couch, enjoy the AC, and see what other classic movie I can re-evaluate.

There's a Post Secret with Liam tonight, for my Liam fans -

I think I actually would have heard Morgan Freeman, if I'd thought about it, but Liam's voice would definitely be a worthy selection.

One more thing on the Scandinavian dancing... there was one fellow who superficially resembled the actor who plays Harrison Wells on The Flash. Same height, similar facial structure, glasses...Harrison having this secret hobby and everyone discovering and Cisco saying something pithy about how nice his calves looked in his knee-high socks, kinda amusing. Though I suppose that would be a better hobby for the "HR" version.

My sister and her family and the in-laws all drove up to a relative in Oregon and saw the totality of the eclipse. I just went to our quad at work, where quite a few people had gathered. It felt quite festive, people with glasses and different home made viewers, including one using an oatmeal carton. I thought a bit about how people in the Pegasus galaxy might interpret eclipses, or the team on another planet when it just happened to have an eclipse, that was entertaining.

I went shopping at the mall on Friday and checked out the Disney store. I was quite pleased to see a collection of Jedi figures, including Qui-Gon. Disney hasn't forgotten the prequels! Admittedly, the prequels were flawed, but they gave me Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan and I shall always love them for that alone. I was tempted to get the collection, though I still have several Qui-Gon figurines from 1999, but the Obi-Wan was old Ben.

I managed to get my artwork rehung in my bedroom yesterday. Finally almost completely done with the painting and aftermath! Two things are staying down, and I think will go to the Escapade swap table, and I found a dragon print I rehung and a Karen River original that I never properly framed. I'm taking it the next time the frame store has a sale and then will hang it. Good to be getting things done.

Anyone else watching Manhunt: The Unabomber? I remember the Unabomber well, though I didn't feel personally threatened by him and just glanced at headlines about him. But I was ready for a new show, and Paul Bettany! He's always good. I do find the intensity and tedium of the FBI efforts interesting. I'm so used to shows like Criminal Minds, where the profilers rattle off a couple of facts, and Garcia plugs it into her connected databases, and voila! Five minutes later, she has the name of the villain. To see months and months of painstaking forensics is a good reality check.

I went to a Scandinavian festival this morning, which seemed bad timing given the recent events in this country. Can you get more white than a Scandinavian festival? But I've been trying to get myself to do more new things, and it was in my neighborhood, on my way home from buying a new tub spigot at Home Depot. I ate Swedish meatballs and Swedish pancakes and watched some Scandinavian dancing, which reminded me of Regency or square dancing, with people changing from dancing with their partner, to clusters of four, to the entire group all swirling in unison.

I thought briefly of a Regency party, but then my brain went to my recent Quinn/Ben fic, and Horton hiring Ben to attend his celebrity parties, and chat up the wallflower ladies, and dance with them, while Quinn is an honored guest and lionized. After everyone had left, the musicians would stop their packing up, and play one more song so that Quinn and Ben could dance together.

Which is not really much of a fic. I just like the thought of Quinn and Ben in tuxes dancing together.

Speaking of bunnies, I watched the 1946 version of Agatha Christie's And Then There Were None. These strangers are invited to a house party on a deserted island. Every two bedrooms in this mansion share a bathroom in between, so these people who have just met are knocking on the door to let the other person know that the room is now available. Doesn't that scream fanfic? I think John and Rodney, with at some point, Rodney banging on the door and insulting how long John takes on his hair. Only not with that particular story, which has a lot of paranoia, distrust, and people being murdered. Interesting, but not something to rewrite. A happy house party on a deserted island with total strangers who bicker and fall in love and have sex in a big four poster bed.

I feel very satisfied and blasphemous and like my brain is in good bunny order.

I ramble about house and painting and purging and STUFF. )

I ramble about Matt and John. )

I ramble about Ben and Quinn. )

Anyway, I still need to re-hang pictures. I'm going to move them around, I need to contemplate arrangements. And I'm purging a few pictures too, go me.
