It's that time again!

S.A.D. blows goats in Hell. There seems to be about two hours of sunlight a day (which, HELLO, last time i checked this wasn't the North Pole, so WHAT'S UP WITH THAT?) and those two hours are a miserable grey.

This = sad bunny me.

Only not, 'cos something has altered in my body chemistry (possibly it's the change in tablets) and i don't get sad so much as i get mad. No, not mad, MAD.

MAD MAD MAD, tearing at my hair, skin's too small, skin's too itchy, everything's out to get me so GET IT FIRST, KILL IT DEAD, EAT ITS FACE, CHEW ON ITS EYEBALLS, STAMP ON ITS REMAINS!

And, i really don't know how to deal with that. i'm not an angry person. If i get mad it's in tiny increments, and mainly it's about stuff i can't do anything about - so i just let it go.

But this i can't let go. It stays there, filling up my chest, drowning me in waves upon waves of MADMADMAD ANGRYANGRYANGRY MADMADMAD. And just when i think i've got it tamped down i'll do something inconsequential (like drop a pen, or leave a cup of tea to go cold) and MADMADMAD ANGRYANGRYANGRY MADMADMAD HARK SMASH!

vonquixote thinks that the anger is healthier for me. Maybe 'cos it's more proactive than the Just-Lay-Down-And-Die Sadness (like in Serenity. That bit about the drug they release on Miranda is just what it's like.) But... i don't know. *shrugs*

Ah, Realism in Fanfic.

Title: Definitely Not Arbour Day
Author: ceitie

Rating: NC-17

In Which AR-1 have very, very bad!sex. Drunken bad!sex. Hilarious and marvelously realistic drunken bad!sex. And Rodney is completely unfazed by the whole thing.

"You know," Rodney said to his team, "that wasn’t all that bad. We should do this again next year."

Sheppard snorted next to him.

Teyla said, "Perhaps we could try it again next rest-day." She paused. "Without the fire."

Rodney nodded happily. "And with better drugs."

The Great Queer Ones

No, this isn't a previously unpublished H. P. Lovecraft story.... yet.

i was just nosing around on Wikipedia, reading aloud bits of epic Wiccan fail for the amusment of The Kap, when i came across this:

# Inanna had a creature neither male nor female rescue her from the underworld, named Asushunamir. This is sometimes regarded as the origin of the queer ones. #

WTF?! i say. "The Queer Ones"???

... This requires some RESEARCH!

*10 minutes later*

Invocation of the Queer Ones

From the Lavender Lands, and the space in between,
From the cracks in the world, in the order of things,
We summon the Queer Ones, the fount of our love,
To rise from below and descend from above,
To bridge now the gap that exists in our hearts,
To heal the pain that has torn us apart.
Bring us your laughter and lend us your song.
Join in the struggle endured for so long,
That we now might taste of the water of life,
And be free from the curse that has caused us such strife.
Let us remember our power and place
Of our home from the stars, in the sweet ones embrace,
To reclaim now the ancient blessing once given,
from the Goddess of Earth, the Goddess of Heaven:
For ours is the wisdom of moon and of earth,
We stand at the gate between death and of birth.
As the fathers of beauty, as the mothers of souls,
we are healers of spirit, and we walk between worlds.

Summer Glau for Catwoman

Blame vonquixote for that one.

Not that i think he's wrong. i mean, think about it.

Now think about it some more. Think about the catsuit. Think about the crazy. Think about the FeetTM. Think about the bending. Think about tiny Summer Glau in the arms of hulking Christian Bale. Think about Summer Glau Beating Up Everyone.

Also, Jason Todd for first Robin.

i know it's meant to be Dick first, but Dick really isn't movie-fodder. Even in 'Batman and Robin' Dick is very Jason-flavoured (the whole bike racing thing y/y?).
Plus, Jason is very Nolan-verse. The kid gets caught nicking the wheels off the Batmobile, for fuck's sake*.

i can picture him lounging around the BatCaveCargo Container, chewin' the fat with Alfred, watching the Bats get his ass handed to him by Catwoman on the big bad GothamTV video wall.

JT: So, I'm thinking... sports bra.
A: I can't say I've really thought about it, Mister Todd.
JT: Huh? I think about it every night.

*Deer Mister Nolan, sir,

We 'ave sum notions for yur considu concind next film.

Madonna of the Evening Flowers
by Amy Lowell (1874-1925)

All day long I have been working,
Now I am tired.
I call: "Where are you?"
But there is only the oak tree rustling in the wind.
The house is very quiet,
The sun shines in on your books,
On your scissors and thimble just put down,
But you are not there.
Suddenly I am lonely:
Where are you?
I go about searching.

Then I see you,
Standing under a spire of pale blue larkspur,
With a basket of roses on your arm.
You are cool, like silver,
And you smile.
I think the Canterbury bells are playing little tunes.

You tell me that the peonies need spraying,
That the columbines have overrun all bounds,
That the pyrus japonica should be cut back and rounded.
You tell me these things.
But I look at you, heart of silver,
White heart-flame of polished silver,
Burning beneath the blue steeples of the larkspur,
And I long to kneel instantly at your feet,
While all around us peal the loud, sweet Te Deums of the Canterbury bells.

First: watch this.

Then: read this.

Now: join with me in crying like a girl and sighing like the massive gayist i know i am.

Drastically Redefining Protocol by Rage Prufrock

Modern day Merlin AU that is so painfully made of squish that i've probably broken something sighing, and hugging myself, and sighing again, and clasping my hands to my bosom, and maybe wiping away a tear or two.

Did i mention the sighing?

i know wot i didn't mention. MULTIMEDIA. ZOMG WE LOVES IT, PRECIOUS. YES WE DO.
Like nothing on Earth i love the multimedia and this, well. Zoetrope did the trailer. Nuff said, right there. And there are tabloid articles and ONTD! screencaps and pictures of Arthur's iPhone.

There's nothing that makes you feel more British than a good Royal scandal spread across all the papers. i'm feeling madly patriotic all of a sudden.
