This is Not Porn

That is the actual name of a blog I found today that is full of weird and wonderful celeb photos from all eras. I'll spam you with just a few of my favorites, but I encourage you to go and browse because it is as advertised, "a collection of rare, beautiful, fun, strange and awesome celebrity photos."
A few of my faves from "This is not porn":

Weekly Fic Wrap Up: Week 42, 2014

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
This week's fic wrap up is brought to you by the letters S and H for sinus headache (that woke me up at 3 am this morning, forcing me to stumble into the bathroom and find ibuprofen) and by the number 6, which was the time I was actually supposed to get up. :P
Still, the headache is now gone, as are the overnight storms that caused it, and it's a pleasant enough day. All I have to do now is survive tonight's call shift. Oi.

I hope everyone else's Monday is going well.

Here's the list.

And as for what I'm working on...

Does anyone know what type of flower this is? Answered! Thank You!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I've seen them in quite a few gardens up here. They're very pretty and the blossoms seem to last a long time. I'd like to get some for my garden next year, but I don't know what they are. Can anyone help me with this? I'd really appreciate it.

Edited to add: I've now been told they're a variety of Japanese Anemone. Anemone Hupehensis "Splendens", a hardy perennial. :D

Wordnik Word of the Day

Wordnik Word of the Day for October 20, 2014


reremouse


A bat.

Presently, sweetened by distance, would be heard the wild weird song of lads and lasses, driving or rather pelting, through the gloaming their sheep and goats; and the measured chant of the spearsmen gravely stalking behind their charge, the camels; mingled with bleating of the flocks and the bellowing of the humpy herds; while the reremouse flitted overhead with his tiny shriek, and the rave of the jackal resounded through deepening glooms, and — most musical of music — the palm trees answered the whispers of the night breeze with the softest tones of falling water.
The Book of The Thousand Nights And A Night

The word 'reremouse' comes from Middle English reremous, from Old English hrēremūs, hrērmūs ("bat"), equivalent to rear (“to move, shake, stir”) +‎ mouse.

Beloved Cat, by zellieh



Beloved

I love you.
I love your soft, living-velvet fur
I love your warm, contented purr
I love your demanding meows
I love your iron claws in velvet paws
I love your demands
to be petted
to be let in
and let out
and let in
and let out
and let in
and let out
and let in...

...alright, sometimes I love you more than others.Full text of poem for length )

Dear Yuletide Letter (2014)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you so much for volunteering to write a fic for me! Please feel free to take a look around my journal if you want to see what kinds of stories I like. You can find my Fanfic Masterlist here, and the fics are also tagged by fandom and/or title in the sidebar. As you can see, I mostly read and write m/m slash, but if you don't feel comfortable writing that, I would be perfectly happy with a gen or het story too!

Comic: Grumble (complete)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Just a quick sketchy thing, I'm trying to kick the muse into gear so I just did this one without dithering over it too much.

Apologies for the lack of bickering or sex, I'm in a mood.

Generational Wisdom )

Look what I found at Yuletide!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I spent some of last night browsing "pimp your Fandom" at the Yuletide LJ last night, just to see what was what. I added a dozen books to my Amazon Wish List, some new series to YouTube's WatchLater, and fell in love with two amazing things I want to share with you now.

(the blurbs are taken from the posts on the Yuletide LJ com)

1. Fandom: Eroica Yori Ai o Komete | From Eroica With Love
Category: Manga

Posted by NomadicWriter
From Eroica With Love is a long-running manga about a gay English aristocratic art thief and his futile pursuit of the uptight, homophobic German NATO major of his dreams. Wacky hijinks! Cold war spy tropes! Adorable 70s style manga art! The series is light-hearted and funny, but the main characters are layered and complex and there are some darker more espionage-focused spinoffs, so there's a lot of scope for all kinds of stories to be told.

Links:
a
full fandom primer for smallfandomfest, which has more details on the characters, links to the LJ comms, places to find fic and some ship manifestos.


Aren't they so cute? I ordered vols 1-3 from Amazon used. I think Klaus looks like a young Stephen Fry. And I'm old enough to think that 70s art is delicious. 1970s!! Where was this when I needed it?


2. Ya Lyublyu Tebya/You I Love, a 2004 Russian comedy
posted by Alley_Skywalker

Basic story/plot: Timofei is a fairly successful professional working for a Moscow advertisement agency. His life is pretty boring but not unhappy. One day he meets a lovely woman, Vera, with whom he instantly clicks. They start a relationship and everything seems to be going well until the night Timofei hits a young man with his car. The young man an Uloomji, a native of Kalmykia. Uloomji has moved from the provinces to Moscow to look for work. He’s innocent and adorable and Timofei falls in love with him. Obviously, this complicates his relationship with Vera ( but fear not, this love triangle actually gets a happy ending! )
 

Trailer HERE
available in 9 parts on YouTube HERE

I watched all of this last night and am so in love with these characters. I love that it's lighthearted Russian queer-positive. I love that the actor playing Timofei reminds me of a young BBC Sherlock. I love Uloomji's provincial sweetness (and his reindeer!). I love Vera's dilemma, having lived a lot of it. Run don;t walk.


One more piece of amazingness: New music to write my Nano by: Have you come across Mark McGuire? O.M.G

Doodle: Eyes Front, Gentlemen

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
 There has been no odd kinky art on this journal for a long time. Overdue. So here's a highly unlikely scenario that I would read the crap out of all the same. There's not nearly enough beatings going on in my fandom life :P

 Maybe he caught them in his broom cupboard one too many times and decided they needed the Fred and George treatment to discourage further defilement of his house, or maybe Arthur is just a kinky bastard, or maybe both.
