Twenty-one years ago the Twin Peaks cliffhanger blew my little teenaged mind and left me scrambling to find things (through AltaVista on Netscape...) to maybe help with the whole "AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!" that I was feeling at the time.

I didn't find anything.

But tonight I watched four new episodes (new episodes!!!) of Twin Peaks (four of them!!!!).

Is this about the bunnies? )

The Big Gay Fiction Giveaway is back! May 22-29, around 80 authors are giving away free books, short stories, chapters, and box sets.

It's run by Instafreebie, which means you give them an email address, they sign you up for a newsletter, and you get a DRM-free epub, mobi, or (sometimes) pdf sent to you. It's pretty painless except for all the newsletters you'll then belong to.

I see Among the Living: PsyCop 1, by Jordan Castillo Price, which I highly recommend, though for the psychic world-building rather than the romance and for the main character whom I love, and K.J. Charles's The Magpie Lord, which also has good world-building and a romance I don't care about, but if you love magic and little guy/big guy with the tall guy being the top, then the Magpie Lord might be for you.

If you have any recommendations off this list, please share them!

The Washington Post’s Matt O'Brien observed that Trump doesn't show any […] ability to distinguish fact from fan fiction when it comes to his policies.

In 'Is burlesque sex work?' for Colorado Springs Independent, Alissa Smith wrote that one performer she intereviewed brings up "nerdlesque" a subset of burlesque that is based in pop culture, a kind of "live fanfiction."

In an Orlando Sentinel review, Dewayne Bevil wrote This is not your father, son or holy ghost’s Bible story. In “Biblical Fan Fiction,” a four-member cast puts a spins on the scriptures.

From BuzzFeed contributor Arianna Rebolini: I Found My Voice As A Writer In Justin Timberlake Fan Fiction.

A Straits Times profile of Ning Cai by John Lui mentioned that, a voracious reader as a child, she became a prolific writer of fan fiction as a teenager on Web forums dedicated to the cult fantasy television series, Xena: Warrior Princess (1995-2001).

Alien: Covenant, Trudeau/Macron, Harry Styles, Harry Potter, Sonic Forces, Twin Peaks, Ibsen, Fargo, Sherlock Holmes, Carol )

From a promotional blurb on Broadway World for Joy Butler’s The Permission Seekers Guide Through the Legal Jungle Second Edition: [The book] is the resource for anyone clearing rights with new and expanded information on fan fiction, protectable art, writers, filmmaker, musicians, website developers, political and cause marketing, and wiretapping.

According to Michael Harthorne on Newser, some folks are composing fan fiction about Moon's bodyguard, describing him as a "square-jawed serious romantic lead," according to the New York Post.

In 'Al Green Becomes First Congressman to Call for Trump's Impeachment,' Houston Press’s Dianna Wray wrote While Green isn't the first Democrat to talk impeachment — it's been a popular bit of Democrat congressional fan fiction ever since Trump won the election — he was the first to actually call for it on the House floor.

Marissa Meyer told Los Angeles Times’s Tracy Brown I was obsessed with [Sailor Moon] as a teenager, especially the romance between Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask, for whom I wrote a ton of fan fiction.

In a Guardian review of Andrew Wilson’s A Talent for Murder, Ian Sansom wrote You may perhaps have read those books in which Jane Austen is a detective, or the Brontës come back as ghosts: fan fiction in which a writer’s enthusiasm for their literary hero leads them towards a reimagining of the hero’s life.

Finally, for ThisWeek Community News, Margaret Towery wrote This joyful, engaging kind of reading often leads to greenbelt writing. Informal, ungraded, whimsical entries in a notebook or digital environment are the kinds of scribblings students and adults fill with humor and voice.

the last night of unemployment

[personal profile] tielan
So my time of unemployment comes to an end. 'Twas nice to lay in bed until all hours, to relax and mosey on through the day with little thought for what needs to be done tomorrow, to do quilting and gardening and cooking and writing...

Alas, all things must come to an end, and tomorrow I shall be trying the full commute in to the city - walk to the bus, then train, then walk there and the reverse to get home. It will be dark when I arrive home, and may very well be darkish when I leave in the morning.


I picked up a pinch-hit for [community profile] fandom5k with, oh, 10 days to write it.

[archiveofourown.org profile] sunspot asked for Steve/Maria and I nearly signed up just for that, and then the request turned up on the PH list and I just decided I'd write for it. I wrote about 3000 words to the next chapter of the MCU fusion into SGA, but then chose to change direction and I'm happier with this one than I was with the SGA fusion! It's complete, but there's the possibility of more. (There's always the possibility of more.)


I've come to realise just how many WIPs I have lying around the place - of the cliffhangery kind. There are really quite a lot of them - and in all honesty they're actually only the merest fraction of stories that I have on my HD.

I've managed to drag Maria's section out for slightly complicated, but she sure didn't make it easy! And now I have to walk the delicate, edged line of Natasha's fear and possessiveness through a political and personal mire. *sigh*

But Bucky should be easy, right? RIGHT? *facepalm*

Celine Dion "My Heart Will Go On" from Ana Sofia Ramos on Vimeo.


Suddenly I am sixteen again...

I've talked about it before, but it bears repeating since it still hasn't changed - this song (and the movie) have such a treasured spot in my heart. It takes me back to when I was sixteen, an angsty teenager with the hugest crush on Leonardo DiCaprio, fascinated by the story of Titanic and the love story of the movie.

And god, Celine is just freaking amazing. Even now twenty years later, she has such power in her voice - such emotion. She's a true diva and her performance here is incredible and moving. I imagine it brings back memories of her husband - she appeared emotional during the performance, and I have to assume that she found herself thinking of him.

I really do need to rewatch the movie sometime soon. I haven't in awhile, in part because I can practically rewatch it in my head, but it's not quite the same. Besides, Leo and Kate are both eye-candy in this movie. :D

So, if I did, hypothetically speaking, run a GotG fanworks exchange, what might be a good name for it? I was tentatively thinking either Come A Little Closer or Hooked on a Feeling (I would like to come up with something to do with mixtapes, but I'm blanking on it). Definitely need something that goes with the movies' cheesy pop-culture retro feel, though. Thoughts?
