My friend [livejournal.com profile] settiai is having another one of her periodic online yard sales and there's still a bunch of goodies left! Mostly movies (including some great kids' movies) and TV shows--you can still get all of Firefly for $8 + shipping, for example. Proceeds to help with vet bill. I've known her for years and ordered from her a number of times and she's always been completely trustworthy. Check it out at http://settiai.livejournal.com/2045553.html

Story title: Lucky for Me
Author: Amedia
Rating: PG
Characters/Ship: Joey-Chandler or Joey/Chandler, depending on how hard you squint
Summary: Chandler really cares about the coffee.
Keywords: fluff, bickering, hurt/comfort
Word count: 767
Author's note: This theme of year's slash pajama party at REVELcon is "hurt/comfort," so I needed a short hurt/comfort piece in a fandom that most people would recognize. I was idly musing and this just popped into my head.
Newsflash! "Your Royal Madjesty" on AO3 - Srishti on tumblr - drew a lovely illustration for this story! You can see it at http://drawthelinestoallconstellations.tumblr.com/post/113868358331/hi-did-you-know-i-ship-chanoey-no-well-now-you

That is, for my fellow Rat Patrol fans--my homerats, as it were. Which almost rhymes with mome raths, which makes me think of Jabberwocky, so it's all good.

Anyway, I managed to catch two of the Rats - Lawrence Casey and Christopher George - basically, the two who are NOT in the icon - on Love Boat, and made screen caps, and here they are!
Hitch on Love Boat
Troy on Love Boat

Enjoy!

. . . that is to say, at 3:30 a.m. tomorrow morning. TODS is driving me to the airport and we're going to listen to Night Vale on the way, hooray! After MW*C, a visit to see my family. I will probably be online sporadically for the next couple of weeks, and I apologize in advance for not keeping up with folks as well as usual I should. Hugs to all!

Author's note: An idea I had that finally crystallized when I heard "Missing." Spoilers for "Yellow Helicopters." It will probably be jossed in an episode or two, but this is my pet theory of how to resolve the StrexCorp problem.

I'm so relieved to be out from under that project! I want to WRITE! At least drabbles. :-)

So give me a prompt and a fandom. I'm in the mood for fluff; gen or slash is fine. Night Vale, Sherlock, Tin Man, Rat Patrol, Barney Miller, any other fandom in which you know I've written. If you're not sure, feel free to ask.

Notes on BRB--Summoned by Management:

I decided I wanted to write something in the style of an episode, so the story is all dialogue with a few sound effects. There's no narrative. That was tricky! Especially when you're trying to write h/c and you have to put in clues from which the reader can infer what's going on.

One of the stories I rec'd recently (Homebrew by leiascully) included a line about how Old Woman Josie knows what's really going on in Night Vale, she just isn't telling. That immediately became part of my headcanon. :-)

Lulu is short for Lourdes. Small town in the Southwest, there ought to be some more locals with Hispanic names. IMNSHO. :-)

What really happened with Station Management in this fic has a lot to do with my interpretation of the episode "Subway." Spoilers for Subway )

Summary: Cecil vanishes the morning after a fight with Carlos.

Just read the most recent book for the book club, which was very well-written and desperately sad. That seems to be what people in this club really like. Instead of complaining, I thought I'd try bringing something fun to the party! I've never recommended a book for us to read, and I think that if I did, it would be considered seriously.

It can be adult or young-adult, and it needs to be written by a woman, preferably fairly recently. (Otherwise I'd try to convince them to read Bloody Jack.) I'd love to recommend something fantasy or science fiction with a rousing adventure plot. Suggestions welcome--even if it's a book you've recommended to me before and I'm spacing on, don't worry about repetition--my mind is a BLANK!

Oh, and I need it by tomorrow night (meep!) . . . Thanks in advance for ANY assistance!!!!

Slogged through this tragedypornfest for the book club. Cardboard characters, lame and sloppy plot. Overall message is one I've seen on an appalling T-shirt: "Boys are icky. Throw rocks at them."

Fun and fluffy Bollywood movie! Starring Shahrukh Khan (no surprise there), Kajol, and Amrish Puri as the girl's very strict father. The latter looked familiar, so I looked him up - he was Kiran's very strict father-in-law in Mohabbatein - he was also the leader of the evil cult in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom! During his big showdown with SRK near the end, I kept expecting him to reach into the latter's chest and pull out his beating heart, but he never did.

SRK looks very young and winsome in this movie, even with a mullet:


Great songs, including one - Mehndi Lage Ke Rakhna ("Henna") - that I had already bought because I liked it so much on Pandora; didn't realize it was from this movie! Click for link to video )
