OH MAN, it's been ages since I've posted. Stuff's been happening. Life's been kicking my ass. My online presence overall, not just in el-jay, has pretty much plummeted. Ask [livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev.

I also haven't really posted because I've been kind of mad a lot. At...everything. First it's like, SCHOOL, YOU'RE FIRED. Also, el-jay, YOU'RE FIRED. And then it's, Certain People in Fandom, FIRED. And France, FIRED. Arizona, FIRED.

I need to say that a few more times. Fired. FIRED. So, so fired. (huh, that doesn't even look like a word anymore.)

I just--I literally do not understand what is going through the minds of the Arizona government. Something along the lines of caveman grunting? "My stuff, my money, my land. No can has." (Apparently my cavemen also moonlight as lolcats in their spare time. /o\) Honestly? I'm not even going to comment on the immigration law because there are people out there much more eloquent than I am already speaking about the situation. But--banning ethnic studies classes?

Wow. I just--wow. Straight from the governor's mouth, she's worried about these classes fostering "white resentment." Let's say that again. White. Resentment. Because clearly, white resentment isn't caused by entitled assholes. Clearly it isn't caused by that immigration law she just signed. No, of course not. It's ethnic studies classes that are really pushing all those violent minorities over the edge. Well, shit. If only we had known before those goddamn ethnic studies classes were so awful. Bad for your digestion, too.

Who cares about actually teaching people about their heritage? They're in America, now, aren't they? Doesn't that mean they're supposed to conform to all our standards? That they're supposed to single-mindedly adopt our culture? And if they don't, doesn't that just mean they're ungrateful?

Oh, wait, what's that you're saying? I'm sorry, I can't hear you over all the ethnocentrism clogging my ears. Try again in a few moments.

I don't know why it's so hard for me to believe that this kind of bullshit is still happening. I just--aren't people supposed to learn from their mistakes? Aren't we, I don't know, the most adaptable species on the planet? Except for how we still can't tell our heads from our assholes in issues that have been around for centuries. What's even the point of me shouting uselessly into the ether? I'm just preaching to the fucking choir.

Ugh. This was supposed to be cathartic, and I think I've only succeeded in making myself feel worse. :\

OH MY GOD, just have a rec. I really enjoyed this fic! It's Merlin/Arthur, modern AU and h/c. Hopefully it will make you feel better if you just read through my entire incoherent rant.

This is very long. Flist, my apologies.

So, I know this is getting pimped out pretty much everywhere, but I thought I would put a little mention of it here, as well, so as to further inflate my already engorged sense of self-importance. :D!

The Adam Lambert charity challenge!

This is a really great cause, for srs. You get to choose which project to give to (they're all involved with giving arts opportunities to kids in high poverty districts), and what amount. So, you know. If you have a dollar to spare, please give! :)

PLUS, there is a fic/art auction going on, too, where you bid on fic/art, and that money goes to the charity, while you are rewarded with beautiful expressions of fannish creativity. It's a win/win situation! Fandoms involved aren't restricted to AI rps, either. And the authors/artists participating are incredibly talented. [livejournal.com profile] astolat, anyone?

Also! Also I have so many fic recs for your glowing faces, flist. I am pretty much late on all of them, but that is okay, because I am chronically unpunctual and I have learned to accept that. Fic recs behind the cut! )

Finally, I want to take a moment to blush splotchily and thank everyone who is still hanging around for the amazing reception of my latest story! Really. The comments were so awesome and glee-making! You guys made my week, honestly. :')

Oh, wait, no, I almost forgot. I have a picture to show you all! I personally am developing a huge crush on that pretty, pretty girl on the left. behind the cut! )

I actually have some content to post in here! :D

FIRST OF ALL, I would like to pimp out my beautiful new profile. It was made by enormously talented [livejournal.com profile] lethal_melody! And I updated all my information in there--lol, the old shit was so inaccurate--and also put in some (kind of self-evident) friending tips.

Also, I just really like owls, and I think everybody should! So y'all should take a gander at my profile.

In other, fandom-related news--THIS IS A DIRECT QUOTE FROM BRADLEY JAMES: "I find myself becoming a bit of a fan and wanting Arthur to find out about Merlin's magic. Because I don't think it can go on too much longer, with Arthur not knowing; the relationship is in danger of going stale if you keep going at the same pace. But I think there's been more concentration on other relationships this second series than on the Arthur/Merlin front. So I'm hoping towards the second half there'll be a bit more development."

Um, wow. HELLO, unexpected Arthur/Merlin shipper! Welcome to the fold. We'll have your membership card mailed immediately.

Anyway. I was just really pleased by that. It's kind of like the way Gabe/William encourages fandom! The way Pete always loves on Patrick at every opportunity. AND PEOPLE WONDER WHY I WRITE FIC, JEEZ.

Speaking of which--I am due to have a fic post verrrry soon. And by soon, I mean tomorrow. :D! So you can be on the look-out for that.

Oh, one more thing (wow, this is a packed post): Patrick got arrested! Aw, he has street cred now! (Please picture me saying that in my gooiest baby voice. Because I totally am. This is what Patrick does to me.) Just take a look at his totally hardcore mugshot behind the cut )

Why hello, dear flist.

I'm really awful at updating this journal, as I'm sure you've noticed (or not, really, I don't make much of a splash or draw attention to myself at all). I actually used to have an introduction post, in which I vowed to keep this journal overflowing with rl updates, fic, and recs.

HAHAHAHAHAHAH--yeah, no. Not so much. Lurker-mindset, why can't I quit you?

But I do have a rec! A very important one. This story actually made me cry, and that really hardly ever happens, both in fandom and in rl. It's actually in the Merlin fandom, not my principal wife bandom, but I honestly think the concepts in the fic transcend all of that. (lol, I'm starting to sound pretentious. Oh, dear. I'll just hurry up and give you the link now.)

Accidental Memory in the Case of Death by [livejournal.com profile] derryere
Tony O does not befriend losers. Tony O is not gay, not crazy, he is not particularly nice and he is most definitely not royalty. Destiny disagrees.

This is pretty much everything you've ever wanted in a reincarnation fic, and also everything you didn't know you wanted. I did mention tearing up, yes, but on the whole, the story isn't sad. Instead, it's fiercely hopeful, but not in that obnoxious way. Sort of a rollercoaster of emotions, I suppose. I dunno. READ IT. Bit of an epic, this one, but well worth it. Also, you won't even notice the hours slipping away while you frantically scroll down.

In advance: YOU'RE WELCOME. This fic is fucking amazing.
