#it’s strange to thing back and realise this incredibly charged scene was their introduction #no flash backs #no explanations #no descriptions #no ‘well as you know’ exposition #it’s just 2 very very subtle actors with decade of experience and a very spare very short scene #but you KNOW #you KNOW IMMEDIATELY #you know a) these two have oceans of history between them #b) they hold diametrically opposed viewpoints #c) they have probably tried to kill each other at some point #d) they retain enough loyalty to an earlier version of their friendship that they talk amiably about that fact #e) you know shits going to hit the fan as a result of their opposition but you know they cannot do otherwise #and f) they both regret it in a way #THISE SCENE GOES FOR ABOUT 25 SECONDS #you get a cast iron sense of their dynamic with no backstory AT ALL (harrietvane)

Dawn: What’s up?Xander: Uh, I’m just thinking about the girls. It’s a harsh gig, being a potential. Just being picked out of a crowd. Danger, destiny. Plus if you act now, death.Dawn: They can handle it.Xander: Yeah. They’re special, no doubt. And the amazing thing is, not one of ‘em will ever know. Not even Buffy.Dawn: Know what?Xander: How much harder it is for the rest of us.Dawn: No way. They’ve got…Xander: Seven years, Dawn. Working with the Slayer. Seeing my friends get more and more powerful. A witch. A demon. Hell, I could fit Oz in my shaving kit, but, come a full moon, he had a wolfy mojo not to be messed with. Powerful. All of them. And I’m the guy who fixes the windows.Dawn: Well. You had that sexy army training for a while, and the windows really did need fixing.Xander: I saw what you did last night.

I watched Defenders (between all the varous other things I have going on, urgh) and URGH. Dang it.

Leaving it there is mean, even with it being what it was. (Vague weasel is vague :p)

It was good....I liked the way they built the team better than how cinematic did with the Avengers - and they finally did some of the things I had been expecting for a while.

And....I need a Matt icon. I will never not love Daredevil (but Charlie is totally my favourite Daredevil.)

I'm pleased to report that Special Agent Kheldar passed his annual fitness check with flying colours today. He's had his vaccination boosters, a worming tablet, and a full physical. The vet reports that he is in remarkably good health for a cat of his age and that there should be no concerns about his ability to continue in his role as Head of Household Security.

Kheldar claimed that his continuing good health is down to sun patches, sleeping, and gooshy food before trotting outside for his evening patrol.

 Title: Last of the Rift Born (8/12) 
Rating: Adult over all – this part PG.
Word count: This part 2000. Total will be around 20k.
Pairing. Jack/Ianto, other original alien characters as and when needed for plot. Bilis Manger.
Contains: Mention of canon character death Ianto – but this is a fix-it fic, so not permanent and temporary Jack death in a later part - specific warnings for that death will be posted on that chapter. 
Summary: Alone in the House of the Dead Ianto has a choice to make. The result of which will change his life forever. (Set directly after Jack leaves in House of the Dead radio play.)

Next part of Last of the Rift Born now up on AO3.

The Eos 400D is not going to be fixed professionally - I'm being quoted more than double the price of one second-hand from CEX.

Accordingly I'm going to sell it on ebay as is and hope it ends up earning some money. The Sony has already passed what I paid for it with a week to go, so fingers crossed it will do well too.
Why I don't use automated checkout machines -- they cost jobs. Millions of jobs.

Where statues go to retire.

Is America finally ready for the bidet?

The Congressional Black Caucus is talking impeachment.

With all the weirdness, we might need some Help!


There is a lot of coverage of Trump's speech in Phoenix yesterday, ranging from "he's deranged" to "he made it all up" to "he plans to pardon that racist Joe Arpaio" and more. And there were 3000+ peaceful demonstrators outside -- at least, it appears, until police threw pepper bombs into the crowd. I do not have the oomph to chase all of this, but if you go to, you'll find a ton of links. Sorry. I am having vision problems (eta: because the frame of my glasses is bent and one lens is closer than the other, and I have ordered new ones that aren't in yet) and need to take care of my eyes today, ok? Thanks for understanding.
You guys FAIL SO HARD.  How, how, how, how, HOW has NOBODY recced this fic to me?  This is like, my JAM.  It is what I have been waiting YEARS for.  It is a 200k word (for now) Star Wars time travel AU where Leia goes back in time from the end of TFA to the beginning of ANH.  And changes everything.  It is a WONDERFUL story, an incredibly fresh and novel take on one of my favorite tropes, the characters are so wonderfully written (and you can tell the author has a great grasp on the characters to get them so well in situations that are so different from what they were in the original timeline), THIS FIC IS SO AWESOME AND YOU NEED TO READ IT NOW.

(If you're not fond of WIPs, it doesn't end on a cliffhanger or anything.)

(Also, the summary is in 1st person, but that's because it's dialogue from the first chapter--the story isn't written in 1st person, if that's a dealbreaker for you.)
