I was thinking about an FMK (to make it less violent, but keep the acronym, you can think of it as fuck / marry / kick-out-that-door): the Megan Follows / Jonathan Crombie Anne of Green Gables, the BBC Pride and Prejudice, and ... oh I need something to fill out the pattern, so let's say Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

(For me it's probably K: Pride and Prejudice, F: Miss Fisher's, M: Anne.)

It is always different! It’s always complicated, and at some point someone has to draw the line, and that is always going to be me.

[personal profile] seekingferret
I did the ride I was talking about on the D&R Canal trail yesterday. The ride out there was pretty easy. Highland Park is called Highland Park because of the way it looms over the Raritan, so the ride down to the river was a lot of downhill coasting and only a handful of hilly spots. Then I rode through Johnson Park, dodging the Breast Cancer walk whose staging area overlapped with my route. Then over the Landing Lane bridge and onto the trail.

I'd only planned to ride on for two or three miles on the trail. This trail segment of the D&R trail, which used to be a canal towpath, is 29 miles long, and I said in my last post I was going to pace myself and try to work up to doing the whole length. But when I finally stopped myself and said it's time to turn back, I'd gone almost five miles on the trail. My best guess for the total trip is 17 miles- ~5 miles out on the trail, ~5 miles back, plus the 8 miles getting to the trail and back.

When I was on the trail, I just... kept riding. I always have that problem when I ride toward the river- the ride out is mostly downhill. And then when you're out by the river the terrain is flat the whole way. But... the trip back, the last few miles, is when you have to do the climbing. So it's very easy to overestimate my stamina and push further than I really ought to and not leave enough for the final push. In any case, this time out, I wasn't super-winded when I hit the final climb, but my legs were starting to stiffen a bit. I'm glad I did it, though.

But anyway, the D&R Canal Trail was so lovely and I want to spend more time there. There are people biking, and people hiking, and people fishing and people kayaking the canal, but mostly it's just you in the woods on a narrow path, with the Raritan on one side and the canal on the other.

Please send thoughts and prayers that I actually survive this week X_X

On Thursday I'm supposed to submit my thesis. I... am having strong doubts that's going to happen. My back is back to being tender and less-than-fully-functional on a daily basis. I have a minor cold that's making me extra tired and sluggish and if I could just take it easy this week and rest I'm sure it would go away in a day or two? But since that's not an option I'm scared it's going to develop into full blown in-bed-for-days illness. (I was JUST sick! I can't handle that shit again right now!) Work has also been extra busy and stressful :/

To give you an idea how yesterday, the first day of the work week went for me: stayed at work late, came home exhausted and with back pain. Couldn't deal with hassle of cooking so roommate and I ordered in food (she also baked delicious cookies for my arrival, which was a plus). Came home, showered, changed into PJs, ate the food we ordered, watched the double episode of Outlander together in the living room, had some tea and cookies.

Me: what time it is?
Roommate: ten to 9.
Me: Sounds legit. I'm off to pass out.

laid down in my bed and didn't get up again until it was time to go to work. And today my back is still fucked up and my thesis hasn't budged and work is only getting busier. Ugh. I just want this goddamn thesis to be OVER ALREADY and it's like the last few days of getting it done are harder than the last five years put together.

I had tons of fun with FemslashEx, and highly recommend browsing the archive.

My recipient was [personal profile] iknowcommawrite aka Scioscribe, who wrote me two lovely Treats last Yuletide! FemslashEx allows prompts for original fiction, and this is the prompt I wrote for:

Female Revolutionary/Princess

Class issues, identity porn, loyalty kink, and compromised principles: hell yeah. I think ideally I would like this one in a fantasy world, but I’m open to other possibilities. I’d love to see about any variation on this I could think of. Is the revolutionary undercover in the palace, getting ready to overthrow the monarchy while falling for the princess? Is the princess on the run from the revolution, disguising herself, and falling in amongst the rebels? Do either of them begin to rethink their principles or their policies? Is the revolutionary agitating in the open, and the princess is intrigued by her radical ideas? Other things I’m totally here for: wearing a crown while being thoroughly debauched by a revolutionary, hurt/comfort, kneeling, undressing from gowns and corsets, and virgin princess/experienced revolutionary.

Isn't that great? I found it very inspiring.

I wrote Burn, an epistolatory exercise in Ultimate Identity Porn. The revolutionary hides her face to conceal her identity. The princess silences her voice to preserve her purity. They know each other. And they don't...

Steve Rogers did, in fact, realize that something was off when he saw the outline of the woman’s odd bra (a push-up bra, he would later learn), but being an officer and a gentleman, he said that it was the game that gave the future away.

#EXCUSE ME MA’AM BUT YOUR TITTIES ARE NOT CONES I’M CALLING BULLSHIT (via)

No, see, this scene is just amazing. The costume department deserves so many kudos for this, it’s unreal, especially given the fact that they pulled off Peggy pretty much flawlessly.

1) Her hair is completely wrong for the 40’s. No professional/working woman  would have her hair loose like that. Since they’re trying to pass this off as a military hospital, Steve would know that she would at least have her hair carefully pulled back, if maybe not in the elaborate coiffures that would have been popular.

2) Her tie? Too wide, too long. That’s a man’s tie, not a woman’s. They did, however, get the knot correct as far as I can see - that looks like a Windsor.

3) That. Bra. There is so much clashing between that bra and what Steve would expect (remember, he worked with a bunch of women for a long time) that it has to be intentional. She’s wearing a foam cup, which would have been unheard of back then. It’s also an exceptionally old or ill-fitting bra - why else can you see the tops of the cups? No woman would have been caught dead with misbehaving lingerie like that back then, and the soft satin cups of 40’s lingerie made it nearly impossible anyway. Her breasts are also sitting at a much lower angle than would be acceptable in the 40’s.

Look at his eyes. He knows by the time he gets to her hair that something is very, very wrong.

so what you are saying is S.H.E.I.L.D. has a super shitty costume division….

Nope, Nick Fury totally did this on purpose.

There’s no knowing what kind of condition Steve’s in, or what kind of person he really is, after decades of nostalgia blur the reality and the long years in the ice (after a plane crash and a shitload of radiation) do their work. (Pre-crash Steve is in lots of files, I’m sure. Nick Fury does not trust files.) So Fury instructs his people to build a stage, and makes sure that the right people put up some of the wrong cues.

Maybe the real Steve’s a dick, or just an above-average jock; maybe he had a knack for hanging out with real talent. Maybe he hit his head too hard on the landing and he’s not gonna be Captain anymore. On the flipside, if he really is smart, then putting him in a standard, modern hospital room and telling him the truth is going to have him clamming up and refusing to believe a goddamn thing he hears for a really long time.

The real question here is, how long it does it take for the man, the myth, the legend to notice? What does he do about it? How long does he wait to get his bearings, confirm his suspicions, and gather information before attempting busting out?

Turns out the answer’s about forty-five seconds.

Sometimes clever posts die a quiet death in the abyss of the unreblogged. Some clever posts get attention, get comments, get better. Then there’s this one which I’ve watched evolve into a thing of brilliance.

Things I go when I don't have anything better to do: take stats of my works hosted on the AO3.

The way I do it is list the Top 10 across hits, kudos, bookmarks and comment threads; score each work by how high it placed; then adjust the score to how many Top 10s each work got on.

My current Top 10, first to last, are:

1. The Woods. 2017, Shadowhunters, Alec/Magnus. Alec accepts Magnus’s first-stated price for defending Izzy. Consequences follow.
2. Take Seven. 2010, Criminal Minds, gen. Character-driven drabble-based short fiction, if such a thing exist. And yes, you will need that insulin.
3. Salt. 2012-2013, co-authored, NCIA LA + Power Rangers Ninja Storm, gen. Because getting a new agent is not annoying enough, she turns out to be a supernatural ninja.
4. A Goat for Azazel. 2012, co-authored, NCIS, gen. Goes AU after Aliyah. When Tony disappears two days before the Saleem op is a go, the team scrambles to find him - and to understand what an associate of La Grenouille and Israeli domestic intelligence have to do with it.
5. Friends Like These. 2012, co-authored, MCU + NCIS LA + Power Rangers (too many to count), gen w/background relationships. Why Jarvis is not allowed to make friends on the internet: In which the Power Rangers show up to help in the Battle of Manhattan.
6. The fate you carved on me. 2014, for exchange (pinch hit), Power Rangers Samurai + Ninja Storm, gen. "And I thought my team was bad. I thought Casey was bad. But then there is you guys. And, of course, you just had to be Samurai. You realize I am never going to hear the end of it.”
7. Five Times Alex Kissed Nikita. 2011, for exchange (pinch hit), Nikita (CW), Alex/Nikita. Five times Alex kissed Nikita (or tried to), pre-series.
8. The Sameen Shaw Handbook. 2014, co-authored, Person of Interest, meta. A collection of Sameen Shaw essays, inc.: exhaustive timeline; 101 intro to the US Marines, Intel and the world of Covert Ops; and an exploration of dissocial personality.
9. What Olivia Did and Didn't Do on Her Summer Vacation. 2014, for exchange (pinch hit), Leverage, gen. They're either the best or the worst babysitting service on the planet. So long as Olivia's in one piece and swearing she wasn't made to do anything illegal, Jim chooses to believe the former.
10. All the Time In the World. 2011, remix, Criminal Minds, gen. Emily is dead, but that doesn't mean she's gone.

Things I'm particularly happy about:

* Oh my god T7 is no longer the unquestioned leader! That series has been sitting top of my stats at a huge margin from everything else - that has only been growing - since it was published. It's not that I don't love it, it's not that I'm not proud of having written a fandom classic, but oh my god seriously.
* There is a non-crossover PR work on here! Look, excepting the latest movie, PR is a small fandom, okay? A small fandom that's hard-pressed to generate the sort of traffic that can give a fair fight to the mostly-larger other fandoms I create in.
* One of my meta works made the Top 10! And the Handbook is particularly awesome; it's really nice to see how popular it is.

Otherwise, I'm terribly amused that all the exchange pieces that made it to the Top 10 are from my pinch hits. It's very consistent, which is what makes it funny.
