11:50pm: Crime and Pompeii
I see that I've been really bad at updating here. Well, I've not had much to say. But here's some Doctor Who comments and musings (spoilers for both episodes of this series shown so far, and one of the Torchwood novels (if you can call them novels)).
2:53pm: To Torchwood fans...
...if you want 32 little torchwood fanfics, please nip over to writerinadrawer, a last-writer-standing torchwood comm. There's a bit of a tie in voting, and there's only 8 hours left.
Yes, I'm one of the writers. No, I'm giving you no hints.
This was a public service announcement on behalf of writerinadrawer. I now return you to your normal burbling.
I finished #5 by 5.20am, including a 20 minute car journey on which it was too dark to read, so I'm aiming for something similar this time.
Not because I think it's going to be amazing. Not because I really need to know [I'd be perfectly happy waiting another year or five for it, in my own little world of speculation], but because I don't want to be told.
I really, really hate having spoilers foisted on me. And this is the sort of thing where there will be gits who wish to spoil it for everyone else.
7:39pm: I know I've been away for a few days...
...but I wish I hadn't been dragged back to this chaos. If you don't know what I mean, be happy - if you do, I hope it hasn't hurt. I'm not going to repeat all the links that have been gathered. I'm not going to offer advice. I'm a fan, and fandom has been hit hard, but I'm not that kind of fan. But I know many people who are, and I fear for you. I fear for all of us, because I don't know what LJ is going to crack down on next.
In other news: I haz a water pistol!
EDIT1: To cheer you up, if your fandom interest is frowned upon suddenly: Slash Amore! Not work safe, references quite a few fandoms.
Cupati annoys the newsmonkies again! This time, due to a badly-planned survey:
1. In the last week, 630684 people have posted, according to the stats page. Your survey was taking just 1000 people, which sounds a lot, but is just 0.16% of people who have posted in the last week. I'm sure there are plenty of people who care about LJ, but don't post much.
2. By defining that you would take the first 1000 people, you have made the survey biased - you have only people that would normally be on at the time of the survey, so sleepy people from entire timezones [or people who work in other timezones] have been ignored.
Also: It is 49 days since the first My LJ links started dissapearing. I was informed at the time that this was because the home page was becoming more like mylj. Why did they remove the links more than one release ahead?
10:55am: Back button blues
I suppose it's a couple of months ago that I was moaning about that the back button making LJ perform an illegal operation. Well, today it's back, so I once again ask Internet Explorer peeps - is it happening to you?
11:15pm: Originalfic: Someone Else's Party
I know this is totally the wrong time of year for this fic, but it was the right time of year for the prompt. Completly and utterly harmless, and I don't know who wrote the lyric that is the first line and I can't find it online anywhere. 149 words.
