It seems to be a Red Letter Day today. First off, Happy Birthday to:

[livejournal.com profile] meneleth, [livejournal.com profile] rosiedlotrfan, [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride, [personal profile] whuffle, and (last but very much never the least) [personal profile] aralias! May you all have a wonderful time (and curses on the heads of all those who combine b'day and Christmas presents (well, unless they're really good ones))!

However, as at least three of them know only too well, it's also B7's Gauda Prime Day. *removes non-existent hat*

I've posted these two things before, including last year, but it only feels right to post them again now, because 2016. The vid is spoilery (as ever), but the meta is not. It's also short and I really do recommend taking a look, even if you don't know Blake's 7. Because 2016.

The Cave (S4 Vid by elviaprose).

Another Man's Freedom Fighter by The_Dancing_Walrus (G, 929 words. Meta.)

(For those who don't understand: I once wrote a non-spoilery guide to Blake's 7. It won't explain, because spoilers, but at least you know what I'm on about in the more general terms. Creaky old TV, as ever, in the even shorter version.)

I love that of all my fandoms, only two of them have a special day attached and one of them is an anniversary that's all about joy and hope and ridiculousness, and the other is... well, Gauda Prime Day. But sort of oddly bleakly hopeful anyway, I think.

It's a very good day, that produced three fangirls - not only me, but [personal profile] st_aurafina and [livejournal.com profile] femme_slash_fan! Happy birthday to both of you! Here's to a lovely day and best wishes for the upcoming year!

And apropos of nothing much, except that I found it yesterday & it's one fandom we all share, here's a vid rec:

This was somebody's anniversary tribute, so I don't know how I've avoided it till now. It's lovely! Very handy for if you ever need to answer the question, "What is Doctor Who and why should I watch it/why is it the best show ever?" (One warning, there's a sequence early on that has some quick cutting if that sort of thing is a problem.)

Happy birthday to [personal profile] whuffle, [livejournal.com profile] rosiedlotrfan, [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride, and [livejournal.com profile] aralias! May you have a wonderful day!

Or, at least, as definitely two (three?) of you know, the best day you can, considering that this is Gauda Prime Day. May you keep your chins up, never lose your snark, keep the rebellion going, and probably you should watch fanvids and sigh?

Here are some appropriate vids I happen to like. It goes without saying that if you don't know B7, they're spoilery as hell. But if you don't know B7, you won't be, ah, celebrating Gauda Prime Day:

The Final Chapter

Intergalactic Space Crusaders

Last Man Standing

Cartoon Heroes (Slightly cheerier S4 vid, if you don't want angst!)

The Cave

My Life Would Suck Without You

And Another Man's Freedom Fighter - the piece of B7 meta you really should read. (♥ Also, it's not spoilery!)

*heads off to rewatch Blake*

... [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2! I hope you're having a great day!

I have not much brain today, but knowing that you're as amused by these things as I am, I generated you some Unconventional Courtship summaries to brighten your day! (Or possibly just to make your hair stand on end.)

Happy Birthday!

... to [livejournal.com profile] rosiedlotrfan! May you have an excellent day!

Also as Happy a Birthday as is possible in the circumstances, and many miserable, sarcastic returns of Gauda Prime Day to [livejournal.com profile] aralias and [livejournal.com profile] jaxomsride! I'd wish you all the nice things and a happy year to come, but I think we all know it'd just be tempting fate, which operates by Murphy's Law. ;-p (No, really, silliness aside - hope you both have a lovely day!)

And general commiserations on this special day to the rest of the Blake's 7 fandom (by far the best little fandom in this corner of the Federation)! Have the obligatory fanvid.

Also, in another note, there's a blog out there where the user has been reposting LJ posts without permission. (They seem to have set it up in some automated way to repost any posts tagged with "fanfic" or variations, or entries from selected blogs, possibly, but it includes anything tagged with that - random meme posts, challenge announcement and in one case, someone complaining about the blog stealing their posts, so they obviously don't bother looking at their own content.)

It's here

I've requested that my posts be removed. (They seemed to have taken all my entries tagged fanfic since July, regardless of fandom.)

I noticed (when going through the "fanfic" tag) entries stolen from [personal profile] john_amend_all, liadtbunny (happy birthday! your fic has been stolen!), kaffyr, and also [personal profile] still_lycoris, who isn't on my flist, but I know some of you know.

I'm actually a lot less bothered than I probably should be about people stealing my fic, but I do very much object to someone reposting my LJ entries wholesale, and I may need to make a lot more things flocked for a while, because if it's possible to set up something like that for one tag, who knows who else is doing it for whatever kind of topic? Clearly a public entry really needs to be something I don't mind being more public than I'd planned on.

(I'm posting this publicly and tagging it "fanfic" though, because if the blog ends up with a whole lot of posts warning the world against itself, it serves the blogger right. You know, can we go back in time and prevent the invention of Tumblr or something? Not everything is made to be reblogged and context is a thing that exists, even on the internet.)

Happy birthday to [livejournal.com profile] astrogirl2! Here's hoping you're continuing to recover well - and having a marvellous day! ♥

I had this 500 prompts fic nearly finished already, as it happened, so it's here doubling up as some sort of birthday fic:

(Also, but not entirely unrelated:) There were two 500 Prompts ficlets that I was going to get finished for today, but they'll have to come along later. Sorry! (They weren't even very exciting; I just suddenly realised I could fulfil part of the meme's purpose and post birthday fic, only then...

I got eaten by a fanvid. So, I am behind with everything. Yes, in news that will surprise no one except me, I made a Public Eye fanvid, and I'm not sure it's not terrible, but it is, finally everything I wanted to say about it, and that's a big relief. You see, I did have a possible song in mind, but it'd been used on a few vids before (and I associate it with another show as a result). But! I listened to it again, and you know what? The other vidders are wrong; it's about Public Eye! There wasn't even one word in the lyrics I had to handwave. So then I fudged through some of the technical issues (will definitely have to find a better way another time) and... lo, fanvid! Unfortunately, YouTube made it look even crappier than it is, so I'm trying Vimeo.

(I am now uploaded to Vimeo and at the point where they tell me to go get lost while they think about processing my vid at some point in the near future, and what am I still doing hanging around here when I'm not even paying them for it? *sigh* And, all right, it's not in those words exactly, but that's the gist. It makes me feel slightly antagonistic towards the site, as you can tell. Still, the YouTube version was horrible. My vid was not that bad.)
