Youth versus experience.

I can't recommend anyone read this. I wrote it as a part of the wank/smut thread on FFA (I am the pro-smut, anti-wank person) and thought they had some vague connection. The comments were fun though. Brian Orser's 1988 #look was perfect.

Also, I am watching Samurai Champloo and bonded over how great it was with someone at work (who has completely different tastes in anime than I do.) It is solid! I haven't seen Cowboy Bebop yet.

Hover text: later still: wait, HOW DID UTAHRAPTOR KNOW?

Malapropisms (replacing one word with an incorrect, similar-sounding word, usually in a way that ends up being funny) and mondegreens (sort of like malapropisms, except you mis-hear a word instead of saying the wrong word) are something many of the grammarians see and hear at their jobs. That said, thanks to Ryan North at Dinosaur Comics,I doubt anyone can do them as well as T-Rex.

So, do you have any favorite malapropisms or mondegreens? Mine is “from the gecko” (instead of “from the get-go”). I keep imagining the Geico insurance company’s spokeslizard—or maybe even a tiny, tiny T-Rex. Adorable!

Model-Checking for Analysis of Information Leakage in Social Networks has been accepted into the post-proceedings volume of the conference it was given at. The acceptance is notable, in particular, for the referees' comments which amount in all cases to "have dealt with previous comments more than sufficiently, nothing more to do" which is good in the light of how much time I don't have between now and the camera ready deadline.

Original - A Hollow

[personal profile] serpentine posting in [community profile] 100words
Title: A Hollow
Rating: PG-13
Notes/Content Warning: Talk of death and implied suicide attempt. From one of my original universes.

There is a small hollow in me now. My death, my mortality, the thing that made me a human with a beginning and end is gone.

I had wanted it to be the end.

But I was brought back with my death now removed. To keep me alive. To prevent me from trying again. A thin silver needle was taken from my throat, so small for the thing that stops the breath and beat of life.

Unable to move as I saw it flash in the light, Vale made it disappear into his sleeve.

I wondered: what was I now?

I can't believe February is almost over already. But our regular reccer recruiting post to look ahead to the next month is overdue. So far we have ONE volunteer reccer who signed up for March with this fandom:

* Gundam Wing ([personal profile] turlough)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in March, it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for April, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for March, April or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of February. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Friday Story

You can hear everything that crosses the roof of the Beautiful Shed, including squirrels, cats, rain, raccoons, and hail. My sleep was thin last night; I think I heard each in turn and in combination. I definitely heard the hail sometime in the small hours. Therefore, here is another bit of a story about the cold, since it is on my mind.

[personal profile] tediousandbrief posting in [community profile] thefridayfive
Today's questions are sponsored by the letter F and the number 5.

From an_underd0g on livejournal:

1) If you could hang out with an actor or actress (dead or alive) for a day who would it be, and why?
2) What would you do with him or her?
3) Do you have a favorite movie of theirs? If so, name it.
4) If you could hang out with a rock star (dead or alive) for a day who would it be, and why?
5) Are you able to play one of their songs on the guitar, bass, or drums?

Copy and paste to your own journal, then reply to this post with a link to your answers. If your journal is private or friends-only, you can post your full answers in the comments below.

If you'd like to suggest questions for a future Friday Five, then do so on DW or LJ. Old sets that were used have been deleted, so please feel free to suggest some more!

**Remember that we rely on you, our members, to help keep the community going. Also, please remember to play nice. We are all here to answer the questions and have fun each week. We repost the questions exactly as the original posters submitted them and request that all questions be checked for spelling and grammatical errors before they're submitted. Comments re: the spelling and grammatical nature of the questions are not necessary. Honestly, any hostile, rude, petty, or unnecessary comments need not be posted, either.**

Nominations are closed!

The final tag set.

Now is the time for looking through the tag set, planning one's requests and offers, and doing tag set cleanup – tell us of any duplicates, spelling mistakes, tags under the wrong fandoms, tags that AO3 forgot to add "Character: " to, etc.

One obvious issue: Where does Character: Proto-Zero belong?

This is also the place for inquiring after additional media types for fanwork type matching. If you want to make or request something beyond art/fic/podfic/vid, drop a comment here.

New Rule updates:
-All US Politics must stick to one thread.
-For a wide variety of reasons, no deliberate variant fonts, no emoji in the thread titles. You can use them in the comment, but not in the thread title.

All the [community profile] fail_fandomanon Rules and Information (and Ban Requests): The short version: no embeds, don't out people's real names, don't be that much of an asshole, body fluids are off topic, Mods reserve the right to freeze, screen, and delete the fuck out of stuff. FFA discussion covers a wide variety of topics and has a very flexible view of 'fandom' that includes politics, current events, and cooking techniques. FFA is a Choose NOT to Warn experience. Meme away.

Other posts and resources relevant to your interests:

NB: Meme rules do not require spoiler cuts/white-text/etc. Though, if you want to use spoiler cuts, a wonderful nonnie found a way to add them to DW. Just use the code below.
<div tabindex="-1"><b>spoiler title</b><div>Some spoilery content.</div></div>

See here for a detailed explanation and caveats.

Sites that use Cloudflare have been leaking https information. Dreamwidth and Livejournal appear to be unaffected by this as of when I last checked, along with Amazon, Reddit, Yahoo, and Gmail. Quite a few of the sites that used Cloudflare, and that are affected by this, have been listed by a user on Github. Some technical discussion (particularly in the second link) on Reddit can be found here and here. You can find a bit on the mobile iOS apps that were affected here. From everything I have read, if you need to change your passwords, it should be safe to do so.

Edit: Just found a good tool: Does It Use Cloudflare? Just type in a site address, and it will let you know if the site does/did on the date the problem was traced back to; at that point, you'll know if you must change your password at the site with the problem.

Kyuranger - First Meeting

Title: First Meeting
Fandom: Uchuu Sentai Kyuranger
Rating: E
Notes: Just a meeting between Lucky and my OC Amelia, a singer from the Columba system.
"Wh-where'd you get that?" Lucky asked, pointing at the object in Amelia's hand.
Looking down at the lavender dove curled around the small globe, the singer was silent for a moment before she spoke. "Jark Matter came after me during one of my concerts, I was trying to defend the audience," she said hesitantly. "I..I couldn't let anything happen to them because of me..."
Lucky was about to say something when the sound of footsteps around the corner caused them to whip around. Passing her a Seiza Blaster, he gave her an encouraging grin.
"Just do what I do."

Title: Tempest
Fandom: Carmilla the Series
Pairing: Laura Hollis/Carmilla Karnstein
Rating: E
Prompt: 97, tooth and claw
Word Count: 1000
Summary: Laura bit her lip, trying to keep from shouting Carmilla’s name again. She whimpered instead, clutching the sheets in her hands hard enough to make her knuckles turn white. Another wave of pleasure made her body shiver. They had barely started, but she was already so close.

Just another night in the Hollis-Karnstein household.
