This amused me -- who has it worse, Meredith Grey or Dana Scully?

http://mashable.com/2016/02/11/meredith-grey-dana-scully-infographic/

It's with regret that I announce that the Worf Dax Fanfic Archive is closing when Geocities shuts down the site on Oct. 26, 2009, nearly 11 years after it was first opened. I'd been hoping to find time to save it, but unfortunately RL is more interesting than I can handle right now. I tried a couple of options, but I'm forced to face reality: I don't have the time to move the site to another location prior to Geocities' shut down.

The URL for the site is: http://geocities.com/wdfa

If you have stories on the site that you would like to save, please do so before Oct. 26, 2009.

I do not have a copy of the website on my computer. It may be possible to retrieve some files from the Wayback Machine if necessary, but after the shut down I will not be able to provide any copies of the stories to anyone as I simply don't have them. Some stories may also be archived on the individual author sites (if they still exist) or at Trekiverse. If there is something you really want saved, please go to the site and save it to your computer just in case the other options are not available.

Thank you to all of those who contributed stories and those of you who read and sent feedback. It was much appreciated.

Author's Note: It's all talkingdonkey's fault. She requested a story about this picture; this is the somewhat silly result. Timeline, eh, put it sometime during season 4.

Disclaimer: After all these years, I think we know who actually knows these characters and it's not me.

The Photo ShootCollapse )

We went to see "He's Just Not That Into You" last night and it's a decent film, though I spent most of the movie trying to place various actors (it's sad to say -- it took me nearly the entire movie to recognize Jennifer Connolly). The movie was alternately funny and painful; funny, because so true, and painful because I recognized myself and some of my friends in it. All in all, decent film, and I was tempted to fic a different ending for a couple of the characters because well, they deserved another fate.

I'm still behind on BSG, and curiously, not missing it so much. My sister-in-law and I discussed last weekend and we both think it's because the gap between the first half of season four and the second was just way too long for those of us with Swiss cheese memories and little time to catch up. I've lost my connection with these characters, those long hours musing in the aftermath of the episode, forgetting what makes them work, the history that guides their actions. It's as if they are strangers to me and I can't hear their voices in my head anymore. And it's like when your ex writes to you one day out of the blue about what was and it's been so long, you wonder if you ever knew that person at all. Anyway, hopefully will be caught up in the next two weeks.

Meanwhile, idella rec Benevolent Sibling, hilarious BSG fic. Seriously fun, so go read if you haven't already.

So I came looking for the fluffy and the kittens today because it's been one of those years and came instead across something called RaceFail09 with lots of links here. I'm exhausted just scanning the number of entries on this one.

So I'm still looking for something fun to read this Friday evening. If you have any recommendations, I would love to have them (Trek, X-Files, BSG, JAG, GA, The Practice, CSI, etc). The fluffier the better...

Last night's BSGCollapse )

I've finally thawed out from my first visit to the East Coast in winter in years. It wasn't the cold that got me as much as the black ice. Just have such fears of that stuff that are even worse now that I don't have to deal with it. I was walking so gingerly, grabbing on to co-workers' arms. It was amusing for them.

Also, I have a neighbor who walks around in the buff. I'm not sure how to process this information and now avoid looking out my windows at night. I'm not sure if this is a daylight thing too, but it's just... I mean, he *must* know that his windows are wide open, yes?

If anything does happen to Livejournal, you can always find me at my blog on my website -- http://seema.org/blogger.html; there's not as much fannish content there, but I keep my blog pretty up to date, much more than Livejournal. No plans to migrate anywhere else if LJ, unfortunately, goes under.

Gacked from musesfool:

Your main fandom of the year?

I'll go with X-Files because I actually wrote/finished fic from that fandom this year. And watched the movie multiple times. A scary number of times, actually, considering the quality, but eh. When you're on a trans Atlantic flight of 16 hours in duration, on-demand video is your friend

Your favorite film watched this year?

If we're talking pure enjoyment, it would have to be "Mamma Mia!" I loved that movie and just had so much fun. It terms of execution, story, acting, etc, it would be "Slumdog Millionaire," but unfortunately it hit way too close to home for me to truly enjoy it. "The Dark Knight" is another one that falls into that same category, but without the same resonance that "Slumdog Millionaire" had. Was "Juno" this year? Because I did like that one as well.

Your favorite book read this year?

"Eat. Pray. Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert, hands down. Just one of those books I really enjoyed, didn't want to put down, and felt a personal connection to in certain parts. I also liked "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini.

Your favourite album or song to listen to this year?

"Mamma Mia!" For favorite songs, I was all into the pop this year, and am totally giving away my preference for Top 40 when I say songs by Miley Cyrus, Matchbox 20, Coldplay, and Britney Spears made my commute all the more enjoyable.

Your favorite TV show of the year?

"The Daily Show with Jon Stewart." Leading up to the election, it was the one show I couldn't miss.

Your favorite LJ community of the year?

I didn't discover any new ones or participate heavily in the ones I did belong to. The new job made it just really difficult to keep up this year.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year?

See above. I dropped out this year more than I dropped in just because of the time issue.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year?

"Dirty Sexy Money" being canceled; having to wait *forever* for the last 10 episodes of BSG.

Your TV boyfriend of the year? Jon Stewart

Your TV girlfriend of the year? Scully!

Your biggest squee moment of the year?

Mulder and Scully on the big screen. I didn't care that the movie wasn't up to par, I was just so happy to see Mulder and Scully again and oooh so many moments to love.

The most missed of your old fandoms?

X-Files

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to?

Hmmm... nothing comes to mind right now. I'm pretty satisfied the way things are right now.

Your biggest fan anticipations for the New Year?

I'm really excited for the last season of BSG.

Compass -- The truth was a harsh compass. Post series, pre-XF2 movie. Set after "The Truth" and before the XF2 movie, "I Want to Believe." Anything up to and including the movies are potentially spoilerific. Just one interpretation of how our heroes got to where they were in the movie.

Where exactly do Mulder & Scully live? Virginia or West Virginia? For some reason, I thought it was West Virginia, but I've seen it also as Virginia. West Virginia would so work better with my plot points and research, but eh, can change it as well if necessary.
