Welcome to my little corner of the internet. ;) Pull up a comfy chair/couch/tame dinosaur and grab some tea if you like. The topics below are cut for the sake of space.

Friending: Info.Collapse )

My transformative works and archiving policy is now in my profile; full text here.

What I do here: About this journal.Collapse )

Fanworks: Where to find my stuff.Collapse )

Regarding LJ and RL: For various reasons, including personal preference and professional carefulness, I prefer to keep my online and offline lives as separate as practically possible. I know some of you offline, but in public or semi-public online spaces like LJ I strongly prefer using usernames instead of real names, so I will use only your online handles and would greatly appreciate it if you did the same for me, please. Similarly, if you need to contact me online regarding RL things/things that could potentially make my RL identity public, please PM me, email me, or talk to me privately on AIM. Thanks.

As of May 2013 I am also slowly becoming active on Dreamwidth under condwiramurs. I will still be active on LJ too for the foreseeable future, but if you are on DW please let me know so I can add you there too!

So, welcome.

So I've been bitten hard by a new fandom, Jupiter Ascending. In between generating lists of plotbunnies to somehow work into fics, I made a DW theme to celebrate.

Here's a screenshot:



To use:

Download the two images posted under the cut and post them on your own server somewhere - don't run up my bandwidth/hotlink please.

Set your journal's style to Transmogrified and pick any of the themes. Go to the Custom CSS option on the Customize page and uncheck 'Use layout's stylesheets.' Then paste the code below into the 'Use embedded CSS' box.

In place of 'LINK TO BACKGROUND PICTURE' put the link to where you've stored Background Image 1, and in place of 'LINK TO EMBLEMS' put the link to where you've stored Background Image 2.

You can play with the colors and stuff if you want; just please credit the theme appropriately:
Base style: Transmogrified by Yvonne.
Theme: Abrasax by condwiramurs, altered from <a href="http://sailorptah.dreamwidth.org/243651.html">Gunshots and Ashes by sailorptah</a>.
Emblems credit to the creators of Jupiter Ascending.

Yes, I'm still alive. My area did not get hit hard by Sandy. I am still on LJ (at least while I see whether or not they are going to force this bloody *#$%*#& new friends page on us) and in fandom. There are several of you I owe replies to - I'm sorry for the radio silence. I'm ok, just dealing with emotional crap right now and a bit stressed out, and so lacking the energy to do social things. It's complicated to explain. I will get back to you soon. I love you all.

Hugs.

Listen to your users for once. You have 2000+ comments on the news post alone explaining why your latest changes are simply a BAD IDEA, and not one in support of them. Are you TRYING to drive your userbase away by making the site unusable?

This is rather not the downer that I needed today, thanks, Ms. Dowd. Had I found the article before comments closed I would have commented. (Equally depressing was the fact that it took forty-four comments (some of them quite long, not rushed) before anybody bothered to say anything.)

[tw for thinly-veiled homophobia]

So in my daily check-the-blogs-and-headlines browsing routine today I came across this column by Maureen Dowd, whom as a liberal bi Catholic I normally find rather amusing. At first it seemed like her usual skewering of Vatican headdeskery over the abuse issue, and I was pretty much with her up until the point she brought up last month's report by American bishops on the causes of the abuse (the one in which they literally blame it all on the 'sixties). Now, I'm completely in agreement with her on the fact that the report's conclusions are ridiculous.

But then comes a truly execrable bit of headdeskery on Ms. Dowd's part regarding just why she finds the conclusions ridiculous:

In yet another attempt at rationalization, the nation’s Catholic bishops — a group Dolan is now in charge of — put out a ridiculous five-year-study last month going with the “blame Woodstock” explanation for the sex-abuse scandal. The report suggested that the problem was caused by permissive secular society rather than cloistered church culture, because priests were trained in the turbulent free-love era. It concluded, absurdly, that neither the all-male celibate priesthood nor homosexuality were causes.

Do you see it? Do you see the utterly fucked-up homophobic slur embedded in that paragraph?

This in an article decrying the Church for its institutionalized homophobia.

I have no expertise on the subject of whether or not enforced celibacy inclines one to pedophilia or not, but I can say with absolute certainty that homosexuality has absolutely nothing to do with it. Nothing. The accusation that there is a link is not only a piece of utterly unsupported, pernicious trash, it's a very old, very tired piece of unsupported, pernicious trash well-worn from its repeated use by the most virulent homophobes. I was frankly relieved to not find it as the conclusion of the bishops' report, because the 'blame the gays' response is exactly the sort of rage-inducing homophobic idiocy I have unfortunately come to expect from the Church. To find it neatly tucked into an article claiming to speak in favor of LGBT [well, LG, not much B or T in there] equality is a bit of a slap in the face. I just....argh. I feel like putting a brick through a window right now.

Ms Dowd: It is not, in fact, "absurd" that the report did not find homosexuality to be the cause of the abuse scandal. What is absurd is the suggestion that homosexuality causes pedophilia.

Just to be absolutely clear, in case those multi-clause sentences earlier taxed anyone's synapses:

GAY =/= CHILD RAPIST.

Ok? Being gay (or lesbian, bi/pan, trans, etc.) does not equal, cause, or have anything to do with raping children. Pedophilia is about power in the same way that other forms of sexual assault have to do with power; it's not to do with sexual orientation. What is absurd is to imply otherwise.

Absurd, and profoundly offensive. The editors will be receiving a Howler from me.

I've a combined Signal Boost and Original Fic rec for all of you today, my pretties! This has been around for a little while, but I don't see it talked about much and it certainly deserves attention.

Writer Abra Staffin-Wiebe, a skilled sci-fi author, is publishing a fantastic steampunk serial called "The Circus of Brass and Bone" online, with new episodes monthly. Eleven episodes are up so far, with more to come. There's also a podcast of the audio version; excellent sound quality and awesome music. It's a great story, billing itself as "A post-apocalyptic steampunk story about a circus traveling through the collapse of civilization." I definitely recommend it!

However, I also urge you to stop by and look at it because it is run on a donation basis, with the money going to cover the author's mother's cancer treatment. So you should seriously go look, and if you like what you see, donate! Thanks.
