requires tea: […] I also had a dream about being at some gather or con (like always... I swear it's like 50% of my dreams have that kind of setting) and we had a table near the site entrance, maybe? because a lot of people were passing by but it wasn't like a merchants area... i was giving away beaded trinkets and some other tiny charms and bits of jewelry, like... pretty normal...
requires tea: but we also had a pile of lightly steamed broccoli
requires tea: which people were supposed to take a piece of and somehow fix on their chests, like site favors at SCA events (I can't fathom why else everyone would be doing it; it was some kind of token)
requires tea: and some people made celery jokes
requires tea: and one dude tried to engage me in nerd conversation naming Fifth Doctor stories that I don't think actually exist, and I just smiled and nodded because nothing was familiar at all except "The Caves of Androzani"

Eeee! [livejournal.com profile] lutienlovemagic translated my story, Birthday Celebration into Hungarian! The Hungarian title is Születésnapi ünnepség *admires*

It can be read on LJ here or on a story archive here.

I love when fandom knowledge applies to work. (There have been a couple of similar incidents in the past when discussing exactly how to attribute authorship of Beedle the Bard.) Had this exchange today on a cataloging list I subscribe to:

Actually, yes, and that is the way the character is currently named in the show credits. Pickier fans will insist it's the most (or only) correct way to name him, though there were times in the show history the character was called "Doctor Who" in the credits, and usage has been inconsistent among media and even cast members. There are some running jokes about it within the show, but in dialogue it's fairly consistent that his name is simply "the Doctor".

See http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_Doctor#.22Doctor_Who.22 for some general background and http://tardis.wikia.com/wiki/The_%22Doctor_Who%3F%22_running_joke if you really want to know details about when the phrase "Doctor Who" comes up as distinct from "the Doctor".


--------------

* This means that if you search for "Doctor Who" in the subject file you will be forwarded to "Doctor"; the initial article is dropped.

eta: If you are interested in the full glory of the LC subject authority record, which also includes see-from aliases for John Smith and Theta Sigma, lists his "Field of activity" as "Time travel", where I think one might normally expect something more mundane like "Biology", and includes recent citations from the BBC website and TARDIS Wikia, see here. I can only suppose that, like other "(Fictitious characters)" getting gradually converted to name authorities, eventually the Doctor will end up in the name authority file, although whether he'll be able to drop "(Fictitious character)", I don't know - it will depend on whether it's needed to disambiguate him from anyone else with the name "Doctor." (For comparison, there are no other Sherlock Holmeses in the NAF, so he lost his "(Fictitious character)", whereas there are several John H. Watsons, so he kept his.)

Assistance please?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
All right, almighty Flist. Here is my dilemma.

I have to write a story for next month's [info]daily_deviant.
Without going into details, the theme is Romance Tropes, and there are a lot to choose from.
I would like to write something...different, so what I need from you are Harry Potter rarepairs. Preferably characters/pairings I have not written before (which, honestly, I think will be hard to find since I feel like I've written just about everyone once, but hey, I could be wrong).

Anyway, this isn't me asking you to stump me, necessarily, I just need some unusual/rare character ideas for this. Once I pick the pair/threesome/whatever then I think the rest will fall into place.

The responses to this post are screened to protect the innocent keep things a surprise, and, as an added incentive, if I pick your pairing, I'll even write you a drabble/ficlet later as a thank you. :)

Deal? Great. Go!

What Google searches tell us about real sex

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
"Men make more searches asking how to make their penises bigger than how to tune a guitar, make an omelet or change a tire."

from this article in the NYT Sunday Review

 
other interesting factoids:
 
  • we lie about how many condoms we use
  • girlfirends complain about not getting sex more than boyfriends
  • Top 5 complaint among marrieds is "sexless"
  • Men search on "penis size" 170 times more often than women do
  • women's interest in penis size is 40% problems with it being too large
  • in the US, 7 million searches per year on "breast implants" and 300,000 actual procedures

Renner fans, et al

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I just watched Kill the Messenger, the 2014 film wherein Jeremy Renner plays Gary Webb, the investigative reporter who broke the CIA/Contra story in 1996. Of course he gives a great performance.



And its a pretty devastating story, not of big-bang-boom bad guys blowing things up but of the inexorable weight of corruption grinding over all.

Looking at the box office take, it seems this film didnt get seen by many people, which is a damn shame. A well made drama and an important story. 

Give it a look. Let me know if you need a link.

I have so much to do, I'm going to curl up with pets and watch movies. It's cold, it's quiet, and I'm an introvert. I believe some comfort food may be in the mix too.
