Twisted up in Golden Strands (Les Misérables - All Media Types)
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] samyazaz, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] RsCreighton, [archiveofourown.org profile] SomethingIncorporeal
Summary: It starts like this: with Enjolras's father, drunk and desperate that his only daughter marry before she becomes a spinster, accosting a wealthy-looking stranger at the market and directing his attention to her.
With a thoughtless boast, her father crying, "Look at her there in the sunlight, look at her hair, see how she turns straw into gold? Isn't she beautiful?", too loud and too bold for the crowded marketplace.
With a knock at the door, some days later, and a man in the king's livery standing at attention on the other side, reading a decree, and the sudden sense that the world has dropped out from under Enjolras's feet.

A Day in the Life (Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America (Movies))
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] dapatty, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lucifuge5
Summary: What it says on the tin with: Shenanigans! Action! Adventure! Romance! Kissing! (Sam and Bucky's lives are EXTRA, OK?) SO EXTRA

Sergeant Barnes and the Winter Soldier (Captain America (Movies))
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] bluegeekEM, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] madnads
Summary: Not long after his capture during the war and subsequent status as a lab rat, Bucky Barnes begins to see him. Bucky doesn't know exactly whats going on; what he does know is that the man shares his face, looks like a ghost, and Bucky seems to be the only one who can see him.

written by [archiveofourown.org profile] akamine_chan, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] Tipsy_Kitty
Summary: Gerard spends a lot of time looking out the window of his art studio, watching the New York City street below. And maybe has a little crush on the guy who keeps giving him parking tickets.

Paw-lease (Teen Wolf (TV))
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] kellifer_fic, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] dapatty
Summary: Stiles thinks about Scott when it happens, tries to get some, y'know, perspective. He thinks about Scott, that there are worse things that can happen when you get hit with an unexpected dose of something. When the device that had been left behind as a last little screw you by the fae they'd been dealing with blew up in his hands he could've been reduced to tomato paste on the walls.
Instead, he has a tail and little pointy striped tabby ears on the top of his head.

I've Found a New Baby (Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch)
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] thefourthvine, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] knight_tracer
Summary: Itís an embarrassing clichÈ, I know, but there was an actual basket, made of what looked to be actual wicker, actually sitting there. It was oval and large and had spaces for handholds on either end; for a minute, I thought it was full of laundry, and my mind spun an image of a ghost laundress. Then the small hand emerged from the basket, waved around for a minute, and smacked down again.

One Piece Omake Collection (One Piece)
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] Syr, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] Opalsong
Summary: Five things that could have happened in One Piece. Includes: Chubby Bunny with swords, Pants eating ice cream, Reindeer puberty, Franky's Cyborg Index, Maze Castle, and Anatomy questions.

Yesterday morning was going really well: being organised, packing, having short breaks so that it didn't feel like a rush, making salad...and then I mandolined a massive slice off the tip of my finger. abrinsky was his usual calm and effective self, dressing my finger, stopping me from fainting (I don't do well with the sight of blood, especially my own), being my personal packer, and even removing the extra protein from the salad.

I wasn't able to carry any heavy stuff to the car, and I really wasn't in a fit state to drive, so he packed the car and then spent four and half hours driving to Wales. He took the scenic route and it really was full of beautiful scenes.

drive by green

view from a traffic light

We arrived safely, by the sea, and found our holiday rental to be MASSIVE and very well furnished. The entire teeny cottage we rented in Northumberland in June would fit in our bedroom here.

My brother on the other hand, spent the day waiting for his kids to arrive back in the East Midlands from a holiday in Northumberland with their mother, before he could start his four hour drive (with bad back) to Wales. They didn't reach here until almost 10pm, by which time abrinsky and I were up well past our bedtime. But we bravely coped with exhausted kids, and exhausted brother, and eventually got to sleep around eleven.

Our plan for today is something rather more restful, involving no driving and no sharp implements.

On the plus side, I spent four and a half hours sitting in a physio-approved posture in abrinsky's comfortable car, and protecting my damaged finger in my sleep prevented flexing my wrist, so my usual neck/shoulder/hand issues have abated. Drastic measures...

Wise produced a variety of chips called Crazy Calypso. And they were delish. And then they went off the market :(

But! Later Wise produced an extremely similar flavor called Mambo Mania. These were also delish, and may have actually just been the first chips with a new name. Those too, alas, went off the market.

Since then, I've spent a ridiculous amount of energy trying to find a chip with a similar flavor profile, to no avail. But if anybody ever produces one, I'm going to stock up.

Nomnomnom.

Here's the thing. The point of the white supremacists' march in Charlottesville was to make us feel afraid and helpless. You know this and I know this. But there's a psychological bit in there that a friend on Facebook pointed out that I had missed.

It's this: the symbolism of them carrying torches. Something about that apparently goes back to a primordial bit of the brain that keeps the fear going. Maybe it's the shared ancestral memory of towns and cities burning centuries ago -- every one of us has, somewhere in our history, some ancient family member who was burned out of a home in some war or other. (I can tell you that my own ancestral fear of being burned out goes back two generations, to when my grandfather's blacksmith's shop went up in flames in midwinter, and it was a hard fight by the local fire brigade to keep the house nearby from going up as well. If both hadn't been next to the river, the family would have been homeless.) But the point is that something nearly primordial in us sees campfires as friendly (we cook over them) and torches as hostile, unfriendly and dangerous. And when it's a mob with torches? Especially dangerous and frightening.

And those of us who post and repost news items are spreading images of torches. We're doing the frightening for them and keeping it going. Think about what happened when we kept seeing the Twin Towers collapsing in the weeks after 9/11, when the horror and the fear just did not go away because those images kept feeding it.

So this is what I am asking you to do:

1. If, anywhere on any social media, you have posted a picture from Charlottesville with torches in it, please delete it. Or edit it so it's a bunch of ugly white men without torches. We already know what happened there -- everyone knows. We don't have to see that picture any more. We don't have to spread their message of hate for them. That's not our job.

2. Take extra care to keep your own mind free from that image, and from the fear that it and other images of the Charlottesville riot can foster. Make sure to spend time with loving pets, or out in nature, or with people you love or doing things you care about. Make sure to put joy in your life on purpose, not by accident, in whatever way pleases you. Take time to appreciate good things around you. Joy and appreciation are powerful weapons against fear; they set the ground for generosity, caring and peace.

Thank you.

Title: monachopsis
Pairing: Kim Seokjin | Jin/Min Yoongi | Suga
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] noctemlux
What Makes This A Gem: This fic is such a deep delve into Seokjin's pysche and a really cool re-imagining of what could have been, had Seokjin accepted to go into SM. The members' reactions are touching and heartfelt and Seokjin's own sense of something not quite being right is just so well crafted! Definitely worth a read if you like both BTS and EXO.

Continuing Harvey Dent's 75th anniversary I'm going to be posting a few comics featuring Two-Face by Greg Rucka. I don't know if I'd call him the definitive writer for the character but he gets his mindset and has written for him on several occasions. This was first try at the bat so to speak.

I keep telling myself it's only been nine days, and that it will take a while. I am feeling better, though. :-)

Discovered the other evening that I have a Housefic from 2006 (!) that somehow never made it onto AO3. It's Letters of Transit, if anyone remembers that, in which House receives postcards from an alternate universe Wilson. Here's the link to the first chapter (goes to the house_wilson community on LJ). Please ignore the Photobucket hostage notes -- I'm not paying them one red cent. I'll work on posting it to AO3 sometime soon. I can't believe it got lost, but I'm glad it got found. :D

small batch icons is dedicated to the idea that less is more.

Much like how the restriction of a hundred words can turn a drabble into a work of art, so our theory is that a posting limit of five icons makes the selected images shine.

For icon makers, this makes coding posts way easier. Plus, there's the bonus of getting to share icons more often, hot off the press.

For icon shoppers, it's the ultimate in browsing convenience.

The Legend of Korra - Turf Wars

[personal profile] icon_uk posting in [community profile] scans_daily
"Avatar: The Last Airbender" and it's sequel "The Legend of Korra" featured some of the best worldbuilding of any cartoon series I've ever seen. The various societies were rich, and complex, and they included their resident elemental powers with creativity and practicality.



One area the cartoon did not expand on was how certain social matters were addressed, and the Korra finale, which showed Korra joining hands with Asami Sato, the woman she loves, as they step into the Spirit World, was positively subversive in showing a blossoming same sex relationship.

Luckily for us.... )

This is from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #24, and an early story by Scott Lobdell with art by Dennis Jensen. Shamrock, aka Molly Fitzgerald, vs. Arnim Zola.
I wanted to repost it since it seems to equate "With great power comes great responsibility" to "Must punch bad guys in the face."
