Discussion: What are you working on this weekend?

This year's requests:

Peggy Carter & Howard Stark
I love Peggy's relationship with Howard -- she cuts right through the nonsense and sees him as who he really is. Anything from wartime stories to the founding or operating of SHIELD, funny or serious or both -- all of that will make me happy!

Angie Martinelli/Howard Stark
I always thought that Angie, despite her desire to be a star, would be resistant to the casting couch. I think she and Howard would make quite a pairing, because she wouldn't just respond like all the starlets do. I'd love to see the two of them sparring.

Peggy Carter & Rose Roberts
I'm very fond of female friendship fic and these two have so much potential!

Jason Wilkes
I'd like to know more about Jason Wilkes -- his background, how he got to where he got, and what happens to him afterwards -- at Stark Enterprises, perhaps he ends up at SHIELD, etc?

Revoke Article 50 now

Well, I've finally emailed my MP about Brexit. It rather helps that I knew her at university.

If you're a UK resident or citizen, do consider signing the Revoke Article 50 petition, which is at nearly 3.4 million signatures and still climbing. Every little helps.

(And can I say how wonderful it is that they actually allow residents to sign, not just citizens?)

NS: Disney and Fox

So last time I did this it was premature but now it's pretty definite... Disney now owns Fox.

Obviously the main concern is monopoly and the hold Disney has over the entire film industry at this point at least in regards to major franchises. Can't say I'm looking forward to the day when Disney runs everything.

Another big thing is X-Men and Fantastic Four are now in effect owned by Disney and can now join the MCU. (And coincidentally the Inhumans push seems to be dying down, Wolverine and the FF are back, the X-Men are finally doing stuff, etc) The Fantastic Four I can see working but the X-Men? I'm not too sure. Are mutants going to suddenly pop up now or are we going to pretend that Magneto and Xavier have been battling in the background all these years?

Plus... while Fox's handling of the X-Men was far from perfect I will say I'll miss the risk-taking they took with films like 'Logan'. Disney's idea of an 'edgy' franchise film was 'Rogue One'. We are probably never going to have a hard R-rated X-Men film again. (Of course there's still Deadpool who will apparently be the sole survivor of the original Fox canon but it's still not the same effect as having R-rated Wolverine.)

I have now done a highly scientific summary of the results to my highly scientific Doctor Who poll. For science.

Best environmental charity?

Right now we donate to Greenpeace, but that decision is 100% based on the best man at our wedding working on one of their ships for a couple years. I have no idea if their work makes meaningful change or what their overhead is like.

I did investigate enough to be sure they aren't run by the same set of people as during their, erm, more confrontational phase. They're still running afoul of governments, but in ways that I'm comfortable supporting, as far as I know. 

But is there someone else that's better? I know my brother does the carbon offsets charity?

I don't want groups that prioritize animal welfare over human welfare. I want to save the planet so humans can live on it. I'd like to minimize animal suffering, because I'm not a monster, but at heart I'm a bit of a species-ist, I guess.

hey guys, guess what I've been spending the past two weeks on

Large image and lots of text beyond the link. Future dumps will probably be of the mini variety.

Hihi folks - it's Fanfic Friday again!

I have read zero fanfiction this week. I spent the week binging podcasts instead, and caught up on the Penumbra Podcast, The Strange Case of Starship Iris, and Under Pressure.

I've got a long-haul flight coming up next week, too: what's your favourite fic for reading on planes?

And what have you been reading? Please use AO3 code or similar headers, and if pictures are involved please link rather than embed anything NSFW.

I believe [personal profile] shy_magpie is still looking for hosts for next week and ongoing, so head to their journal and volunteer yourselves if you're so inclined.

We're nearing the end of the month and I'm tired. I've been tired all month but this week, in particular, took it out of me. I don't know if it was people being in the hospital or if it was not being in my own space. However, I'm here again, having survived another week, and I guess that's something, isn't it?

So, here's to still being here, for getting out of bed, for opening your eyes. Here's to doing the best we can at any given moment and doing enough to still keep going. I believe in all of you and it's good to see you around. Thanks for still being here.


This post is for:
• being excited about the things you've done this week
• asking for help if you need it
• venting about anything that might need to be flailed over.
• showing off something cool you've done/made/experienced this week.
• being generally enthused and excited about things that have happened.
• just being thrilled that you survived.

Come drop into the comments and let us know how you're doing and how things have gone. While I may not respond to every comment myself, all of you are free to respond to each other and get encouragement, help or whatever else it is you need. If you want to vent without advice being given, please say so and if you want cheering or tips or anything, let us know that too.

I do ask that if you have any triggering topics, that you mention them in the subject line or first line of your comment. This is just so people can make informed decisions on what to read and keep everyone okay. <3 Thank you so much.

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.
