Down the Rabbit Hole

My girlfriend is visiting from out of town this week, and we've not visited in 2 years so a) YAY! and b) we're up until 2am laughing in bed and remembering college, etc. and c) there's no time for internet. (She's on a run right now; she does 50 mile marathons, so she's going to be a bit. Well, she's only running 10 miles for "maintenance" today.)

Things I want to put out there, since my inbox has been getting this a lot:

* I am not going to burn Fireman Blaine and hospitalize him in Where There's Smoke. There are plenty of hurt/comfort fics out there, and it's never anything I've considered writing. Go read Lovesong by preciousmellow - nothing can top that story. :)

* I am turning the Hey, Don't Judge Me tumblr into a purely promotional tumblr (as it should have been all along, mea culpa) and am using Stoney321 as my personal Tumblr. I am still not going to follow any spoiler-centric blogs, and probably am going to pull massively back from fandom, quite honestly. I'm just tired of the element of cruelty that is ever-present and of the lack of appreciation for "happy space" that is prevalent. So if you want to delist, or were hoping to do so without me knowing or something, it's ALWAYS defriending Amnesty Day around here. Make your space YOUR SPACE. <3

(My personal tumblr will be lots of pretty images, music, random things. Not a lot of text posts, etc.)

Okay, time to swim laps so I don't feel like a slack-ass when Chrissy gets back. Have a great day, everyone!

Oh, hey, I shall friend your personal tumbler right away!! More Stoney on my dash is always a good thing.

Can I just say I'm sorry fandom is bringing you down right now? I want only fun and pretty boys and girls and rolling around in excellent fic and discussions for you!

When you swim laps, make sure to do one of those model head-shake hair-spray pulling-yourself-out-of-the-pool poses! Then take a large gulp of iced tea and smile a slow all-teeth grin. Then strut around while I silently weep because I'm so jealous of all your pool-having.

I had someone leave me a comment on an older fic yesterday and TALK ABOUT SPOILERS for the upcoming season in it!! And when I said, "LA LA LA LA NO SPOILERS OH MY GOD" she said, "Well, they're not actually spoilers, just speculation. About actual spoilers. Which are _____"

UGH UGH UGH. Fandom has becoming something COMPLETELY OPPOSITE to what it has been my whole life, and I don't know how to deal with it.

But! Laps! Hair shaking! I did that very thing, but was making a silly face, as is appropriate. :D

Come over today for the cannonball competition! ;D

*follows you on tumblr* The more pretty pictures, the better :)
Sep. 6th, 2012 01:04 pm (UTC)
I want all the pretty pictures!!! :D

*smooches both of your cheeks*

Yeah, I know what you're talking about there. And hey - it's another person's reading time. Make it comfortable for yourself, you know? If my LJ is upsetting, boring (oh my god, that is the worst thing someone could tell me, lol) or whatever, stop reading me! I have RL friends that don't follow me here, because they want to read specific things. Which is fine. Oh my god, it's just the internet.

In conclusion, YES TO YOUR COMMENT.

A ten mile maintenance run? Phew, I need to throw myself into a shower just thinking about doing that in this heat.
Sep. 6th, 2012 01:07 pm (UTC)
It has been SO HOT. Fortunately that "cold spell" we had a while back where it was in the 80s during the day cooled the pool way down, so she just Lipton Tea's into it when she gets back. :D

(You'll notice that nowhere in this post have I mentioned that *I* am going on a 10 mile maintenance run. Because I am a-ok with a little flab on my tush. :D)
Sep. 5th, 2012 09:32 pm (UTC)
YAY FOR CHRISTY! I'm so glad that she's coming out to see you! This will be the bestest! :D THE BESTEST!

Give Fireman Blaine piles from ongoing dysentry - THERE'S YOUR GODDAMED HURT/COMFORT! I would use tumblr but I'm waiting until it become obsolete before joining because I'm old and new things scare me. AHH, A BABY!

You have come up A LOT in our conversation this week. Mostly as a cautionary tale, or as an example of what happens when siblings marry and reproduce, but I hope your ears were burning! And from us talking about you, and not the leprosy coming back!

Sep. 6th, 2012 09:10 pm (UTC)
My ears were burning, but mostly because of the rash that formed under the webbing. My Daduncle and Mumauntie say hi. Actually they say aughhhauahhh.

I bought a lotto ticket so you know that means guaranteed riches and I'll come over and buy a house next to you and grow invasive weeds and breed free range moles because that is the culture of my people. We're dicks, that's why we can never find anyone to date outside of the family.

I'm still all about the happy place on Tumblr, and honestly, I unfollow people who start hatin' on my fandom. BUT I know you don't do the spoilerly blogs, and I do post spoilers (although I tag them for people what do utilise MissingE for blacklisting purposes).

Having said that, though, we got 5 new songs last night for 4.1 and 4.2 and the opinions were generally positive, so at least that's something, right?
Sep. 6th, 2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
I hate that people go out of their way to make sure people hear their negativity or complaints, that they tag authors with shitty comments, that there seem to be more hateful anonymous stuff all over. I cannot stand it and just don't understand the POINT.

And I love that you tag for spoilers! Oh, that more people did. I mentioned in a comment above that someone commented on TBoY with S4 spoilers and I about cried, I was so frustrated. WHY WHY WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME SPOILERS IN A FIC COMMENT?!

I'm just ready for the show to start so I can have my fandom on my screen and FM in my inbox sharing my happy. :D ALMOST THERE, OMG!

So, sounds like you are having fun. Yay! Fun!

I don't know if you have seen this yet, but I thought you might think it is funny.


It's for sale on Amazon. Apparently someone is making money on this. O.o
Sep. 7th, 2012 04:48 pm (UTC)
I've not seen that, no! (I don't know what's funnier: the crack fic, or that she's selling it on Amazon!) :D
Sep. 8th, 2012 03:45 pm (UTC)
I can't decide either, but it kinda makes me wish I had a kindle. I would drop a dollar to read that for the lulz.

And totally be reading it in Gilbert Gottfried's voice, like that one YouTube vid of him reading from 50 Shades of I Can't Write BDSM. /That/ was hilarious!
Sep. 10th, 2012 03:32 pm (UTC)
...why, WHY would anyone want Fireman Blaine burnt and in the hospital? I'm all for some angst every now and then, but noooooo.....I didn't even think of that, but now I'm distressed that thought exists. But oh I'm so glad you're not going to do that. Please don't!!

[Yes, I realise you said you wouldn't ; this is me expressing my gratitude that you put it out there for the Universe to understand that there will be no setting-Captain Anderson on fire, unless it's in the bedroom, yes?]

p.s.: Lovesong *is* incredible. I've made the mistake of reading it during lunch breaks, or at coffee shops...and I always end up openly weeping.
Sep. 10th, 2012 03:50 pm (UTC)
I have gotten that request more than any other.

O_O And I don't WANT to hurt him! (And then I get shit for making Blaine hurt in TBoY, so...) LOL. How about I just write what I can?

I lol'd at him being on fire in the bedroom. HEY-O!

Lovesong just tears me up in the best way. What a marvelous series that is.
Sep. 10th, 2012 04:13 pm (UTC)
"Making Blaine hurt in TBoY" - woah, what!? COME ON! I will NOT hear anything that isn't praise & sunshine about TBoY. That was PERFECT! ANYTHING that happened to Kurt, Blaine and everyone else in it, whether happy or not, WORKED. It's on my list of ForeverReads! I'm not even going to acknowledge that negative feedback exists [yes, I'm mad-protective over stuff i love...even if it's not mine. heh].

And yes, of course. Writers should write what they want to, goddamnit!

In other news, holysmokes woman, you can't go around posting hot-HOT pictures of DC like that w/o warning.
Sep. 10th, 2012 04:45 pm (UTC)
WARNING. DC IS HOT. And an all-around nice guy from all reports.
Sometimes I just like to look at him and objectify his brain. *cough*

Re: WARNING. DC IS HOT. And an all-around nice guy from all reports.
Hahaha! I should NOT have said anything. Now you went and added the "nice" part. Niceness makes me weak-kneed, yo. Cruel, cruel. I have to go to bed now with those pictures and this as my last thought for the night. [oh..this might work in my favour after all].

"objectify his brain" ; it IS the sexiest organ, innit?

LOL Have a hot day [not weather-wise]!

Re: WARNING. DC IS HOT. And an all-around nice guy from all reports.
OMG GIVE ME A KIND BOY AND I AM DONE. I will submit to being theirs for ever.

Have a good night's sleep, lovely!

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.

Time Wot It Is
