After having dinner at B Too with [personal profile] fabrisse on Friday (Restaurant Week meant I got to have beet salad, venison with eggplant, and a 'donut' waffle) and going to Rus-Uz (Chicken Kiev and Kiev cake, and Mors to drink) with [personal profile] greenygal yesterday after helping her assemble a bookcase, I met up with [profile] ellen_frememdon and the Vegan Knitter for dinner at Pete's Pizza, as they have half-priced pies on Mondays as long as you eat in and order something other than the smallest ones.

So I finally got to try the pineapple pizza, Q Bridge, which was excellent and had way more argula on top than I was expecting. But since argula is one of the few green I actually like (not bitter, like most Brassicaceae, and not leaf-flavored, like most lettuce), that was all right.

Also, I got to use a pinhole project at work today to see the eclipse -- 80% partial in my area, since we weren't in the path of totality. But still, very neat.

Dear America... tips from the Faroe Islands
Ahead of Monday's eclipse in the US, here are four tips from the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic, which experienced one in 2015.

…Some weeks just not starting more ginormous WIPs is the real success, okay? I expended a lot of focus on absolutely positively not starting SEVERAL things this week (and… yep, that is definitely the only thing that was using up brain processing cycles this week at an unusual rate, YEP, TOTALLY).

Anyway. 

WIPs currently active: 5, because I bumped All Eternals Deck #2 off the list until I figure out what happens after the beginning.

Words written this week: 4,041

WIPs that got no words this week: 0

WIPs that did get words this week:

Codename: Aluminum Bastard (aka broken dick epic): 883, and I started writing Chapter 47 and then abruptly discovered where the floating point on the outline labeled [particular sex act redacted]? should go in the story, so. Whee!

Born in the Blood: 276, chugging along toward [more sex acts redacted]!!

Slavefic #6: 104. Okay, that looks bad? I’m at the point where I outlined things for this part of the series literally almost two years ago and now have to figure out how to hook them up with the stories that I’ve actually written, so there’s a bit of frantically-jury-rigging-a-round-CO2-filter-from-square-components going on. Hopefully none of which will be apparent from the end result. :)

La semaine de la review

[personal profile] flo_nelja
...ou "review week" (à ne pas confondre avec la Semaine du Commentaire, qui est française et sur ffnet ;-) )

J'ai vu ça sur tumblr, mais ils encourageaient à faire circuler sur différentes plate-formes. Le but est de faire une review par jour (au moins) pendant la semaine du 20 au 27.

Il y a même des thèmes (optionnels, mais les thèmes me motivent) et des encouragements à faire des recs sur les meilleures.

Voilà les thèmes !

Sunday, August 20th: the most recent fic you read
Monday, August 21st: a fic in your bookmarks or read later (or open tabs, or fic recs, or……)
Tuesday, August 22nd: review something that hasn’t updated in a while
Wednesday, August 23rd: review a short fic
Thursday, August 24th: review a fic with less than ten comments
Friday, August 25th: review something you’ve already reviewed
Saturday, August 26th: review a guilty pleasure fic
Sunday, August 27th (BONUS): review every chapter of a long fic

Ou, en français

Dimanche 20 août : La dernière fic que vous avez lue
Lundi 21 août : Une fic dans vos bookmarks, fics à lire plus tard, onglets ouverts, etc
Mardi 22 août : Une fic qui n'a pas été mise à jour depuis longtemps
Mercredi 23 août : une fic courte
Jeudi 24 août : Une fic avec moins de 10 commentaires
Vendredi 25 août : Une fic que vous avez déjà reviewée
Samedi 26 août : Un plaisir coupable
Dimanche 27 août (bonus) : Chaque chapitre d'une fic longue.

Summary: How do you save people that don't want to be saved?

For notes etc, please see The Prologue, or just follow the tags.

Note: Gallifreyan will be indicated by the use of « and » any other language uses "". It seemed the simplest solution.

With many, many thanks to luckweaver, not just for the loan of the Redjay, but also for writing most of the chapter. ♥

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

Figs (oh nom nom nom!), yellow nectarines, red bell peppers, tiny sweet peppers, quart of kimchi, pork belly, pita, spanakopita, peach-and-ricotta pie, and 8.5 lbs of tomatoes.

I'm making ketchup! Locals and relatives might get one of the jars, depending on how many I actually wind up up with after the canning is finished.

3 types d'histoires dont je ne me lasserais probablement jamais

* Tension romantique et sexuelle entre ennemis ! Dans un cadre où l'opposition est suffisamment forte pour que maintenir une romance soit difficile (pas de la rivalité sportive, quoi ^^) Souvent ce sont des ex, mais pas forcément.

* Fusion contes de fées. Que ce soit un univers alternatifs complet, ou juste des personnages qui se retrouvent à vivre des événements proches d'un conte de fées.

* Contrôle mental érotique (consensuel ou pas). C'est juste le kink qui marche le mieux sur moi

Title: A Way Back
Pairing: Ninth Doctor/Rose
Word Count: 10k
Rating/warnings: nothing worse than you’d see in the show

Themes: Canon divergent AU from end of Parting of the Way through The Christmas Invasion. Hurt/comfort and eventual Ninth Doctor/Rose Tyler.

Summary: The Doctor doesn’t regenerate after taking the time vortex from Rose. It doesn’t mean he is okay though, far from it.

It should be pretentious and snobbish to say: “Sure I eat hot dogs, I have homemade mustard and homemade lingonberry ketchup on it”. Then to take the DIY philosophy serious you have to make the hot dog yourself.

Context sounds delicious!

Aaah, so much for getting back into posting.
Trying again.

This time with pictures from the Colonial Williamsburg trip we took in June, because AJ edited them so I don't have to bother with that!

First time there for all of us!
I could easily spend a lot longer than we did, pouring through the museums but alas AJ, Judy, and their partners... none of them museum people!

oh and a warm apple. like, a really warm apple. warmer than my teeth when i bit into it. no offense but. why. did they microwave this apple? did they store it in a dragon's mouth before allowing me to purchase it? did this apple recently return from a trip to the surface of the sun?

Books: Currently in the middle of Abroad by Liz Jacobs, Who Is One Of Us, and about to start reading... one of the two books I still have checked out from the library about the Chicago River and what its deal is.

Books finished: I just finished rereading Persuasion and IT CONTINUES TO BE THE BEST OF THE TWO JANE AUSTEN NOVELS I HAVE EVER ACTUALLY READ.

To the surprise of no one, I did in fact mentally work out the AU where Bitty is Anne, and then [personal profile] staranise lured me into joining her contemplation of the AU where JACK is Anne and in conclusion I am definitely not writing any Persuasion AUs ever.

...Because I am totally onto "what if Jack hadn't gotten an NCAA waiver to play at Samwell after playing in the QMJHL" AUs now.

Ahem. Where was I. READING THINGS, RIGHT.

Fic: Still 15 WIPs bookmarked! [archiveofourown.org profile] maculategiraffe's Fallout 4 series updated today and IT IS GREAT AND MIGHT EAT YOUR LIFE!! I've managed to get my Marked for Later list on AO3 down to... 99! Although my "To reread" bookmark tag is up to 39.

Fic finished:

(A sampling of stuff I’ve bookmarked recently--you can see all my bookmarks at http://archiveofourown.org/users/dsudis/bookmarks)

the black lake by alcibiades (Bucky/Steve, T, 9k) Ohhh boy I hadn't had my heart shredded by a recovering!Bucky story in a while, so this was. OH BUCKY HONEY. PLEASE KEEP GETTING BETTER.

In So Many Words by alocalband (Nursey/Dex, M, 17k) In which Nurse writes stories that... all... seem... to be... the same... story. And they're all about him and Dex even when they're NOT ABOUT HIM AND DEX. <3

Short Circuit by Chiyume (Bucky/Steve, E, 20k) Bucky's arm gets damaged and starts giving him an... unusual... variety of sensory feedback every time it's touched. Which would be a lot easier for him to explain to Steve if he and Steve weren't both firmly convinced that the other isn't interested in him like that. (I would love about a million more stories about Bucky's arm getting cross-wired like this, but this one was definitely A GREAT START. :D)

You Make Me Look Legitimate. by Lanna Michaels (Bitty/Jack, G, 3k) LANNA WROTE FIC FOR MEEEEE ABOUT BITTY GOING TO THE 2018 OLYMPICS AND IT IS ADORABLE AND GREAT!!! <3 <3 <3
