Opinions, concerns, remarks? I have no answers for questions--this is all I know at the moment.
Lets bring something good into the world. Let's hold hands, if only virtually, and not be alone in this. Let's reaffirm that we care about each other, and we don't stand for bigotry. Let's write (and draw and record and stuff).
Prompts are open for anything - any or no ships, any or no kinks, go for it.
Extra cookies if your prompt negates some bigoted concept, we could give love in places it's particularly lacking right now. We can reaffirm that we all have a place here, that we stand with each other. Women, POC, survivors, immigrants, disabled people, fat people, MOGAI people, poor people, etc - especially anyone that's more than one of those things - deserve some extra love, today and in general.... But prompts don't have to do that - anything comforting is welcome, and different things comfort different people! Fun, fluffy, funny, porny, angry, dark, it's ok!
How this works:
How to prompt: Leave a comment with a prompt, preferably with some basic information in the subject line (ship/gen/character, kink, genre - whatever works for you). You can leave as many prompts as you like.
How to fill: Comment to any prompt you like with fic, art, podfic, playlists, gifsets - any form of fanwork is welcome. Feel free to fill prompts that were already filled. If you feel like leaving anon fills, go for it! If you feel like leaving cute little 'created in ten minutes' fills for fun - those are welcome too!
1) Be kind.
2) No spoilers for unaired episodes without a cut/link, please.
3) Use content warnings generously, please. It only takes a moment, and can make the difference between brightening someone's day and making it horrible. We've got enough horrible.
4) Anything promoting bigotry should not be included. If you're not sure, you're welcome to ask me, we can try to figure it out together. If something bothers you - same thing. Sometimes things can be bigoted without bad intent, we'll try to navigate this with compassion if it happens here now. Most things are ok if you clearly warn for them.
Avoiding news and Facebook and most social media. I'm here if you want to talk about Winchesters or writing or almost anything. Just--no politics. Not for a while. The rage comes later.
But hey, time marches on and I'm a famous luddite and late adapter. I'm expected to grumble, it's kinda my job.
Also? the circling blue, eh, circle beside the comment button last night gave me the wig--it looked like the "page loading" indicator and I thought either my laptop or my browser was about to explode. I don't wanna explode. LJ, you're scarin' the women.*
ETA: Oh, and the "add to memories" button is now a banner kind of symbol, rather than a heart. As I'm using the old friends page (until they wrest it from my gnarled, cramping fingers) I'm not seeing the love button, and won't get notifications that anybody clicked it, apparently. Life goes on, as usual, in fu-land.
*bonus points for recognizing the Jayne and Zoe lines.

But as I went down the list there were two, maybe three, instances of wanting to meet the characters (I added Pamela). But in *every* instance I'd want to meet the actor, to thank them for the character they brought us, but basically just to talk technique and their experiences in the film industry.
I added a few: the Megs, both Nicki and Rachel, the Rubys (definitely, both actors), the Samanthas, Ferris and Smith, Alona, Adrienne, the Laurens, both Tom and Cohan. I'd love to meet Steven Williams, and Kevin McNally, who played Frank (and Mr. Gibbs, in Pirates of the Caribbean). (Sneaking in after posting to add Osric)
There are several characters I'd not want to meet: Lucifer, Cain, Funboy--um, Kubrick, or Nitti--er, Doc Benton, but I'd love to have conversations with Pellegrino, and Omundson, and maybe Drago and Massee, too. I'm still too angry with Charlie to have a civil conversation with her, but I'd love to meet Felicia.
two posts in two days. I'm trying!
I could get used to this special treatment stuff! Thanks again!
And for my USian flisties and friends, Happy Fourth of July!
This was supposed to be my weekend off. But nooo, here I am draggin' your heavy ass through the burning desert, with your dreads hanging out the back of my parachute. You gotta come down here with an attitude, acting all big and bad. And what the hell is that smell?!? I could'a been at a barbecue!

A Film I Like: I like Shall We Dance quite a lot. And Six Days Seven Nights..."mayday, mayday, mayday... xanax, my doctor prescribed them for times of stress."
Wanna letter? Just ask.
And in other news, I think there's air seeping under the brand-new (well, coupla weeks old) crown. I'm getting increasingly frequent and obvious twinges of pain, and sensitivity to both cold and heat, which was not the case up until the last couple of days. I will be calling Monday. And chewing gingerly, meanwhile.
I gaze at no introspection on past failures or achievements, and I make no resolutions. It's enough I set my face toward the blank slate of 2016 and refuse to hold it accountable for the atrocities and shortcomings of its elder siblings. It is a wee and innocent thing at the moment, trembling with possibilities. I'll wish it well, and choose to believe in the scope of things achieveable.
Who's with me?
And moving on, from all over my flist, have a meme. Thing.
Name six movies you can watch any time without ever getting sick of them.
1. Must be viewed as a double bill: The Princess Bride, and Pirates of Penzance (the Kline, Smith, Ronstadt & Lansbury version *only*!) **
2. Ghostbusters 1 & 2 (for the quotes, alone!)
3. Local Hero ++
5. Still Breathing
6. My Neighbor Totoro/Spirited Away
**The double bill was the gf test for the sons. "I dun geddit. I'm bored," meant we'd seen the last of the young woman.
++ The Mark Knopfler soundtrack alone makes it worthwhile.
Somebody hold me.
ETA: Okay, well, I took a deep breath and tracked down the airing schedule and ep.8, Just My Imagination airs on 12.02.15, Well, now I'm out of sorts, having to wait for my fix. To quote an old friend, "Balls!"
