unless it's PBS, and as I was FF-ing through the commercials on the most recently DVR'd Criminal Minds, I got a flash of a familiar face, and backed up to see what's going on.

Kim Rhodes and Jim Beaver are guesting on the most recent episode of Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, episode title, Blowback. From the brief clips, Kim, looking every inch the high-ranking HBIC, has got her fierce on. And Jim's looking very distinguished, competent corporate or Fed-ly. I might have to watch this one.

OH makes a vat of vegebarleybeef soup several times a year, particularly welcome in winter. He offered a quart to the next door neighbor, who said, "Oh, I couldn't eat that much!" and accepted a pint, instead. This afternoon we found the pint container on the back steps with homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies inside. I'm liking this arrangement!

Minton's Haddon Hall plate, cup, and saucer, thrifted sugar and creamer, Portmeirion "A Fine Romance" teapot. It pleases me the tea towel has herbs printed in purple and green.

I am so late posting this, but I'd forgotten I had blood work first thing this morning. But I'm back now, and want to wish an incredibly special and wonderful woman an equally special and wonderful birthday! You inspire me, you make me laugh, you poke my turtle shell when I'm not feeling social, and make me want to be active in fandom again. You're a gorgeous, generous, bawdy, loving, and wonderful person and my life is so much brighter with you in it--I wish you ALL the birthday joys, hon!

I lost a friend today, after a long battle made needlessly more difficult and painful by the US medical system. She was bright, articulate, sarcastic with a soft sympathetic underbelly and a practical way of getting things done. She was a light, not just to me, but to many others, and she'll be missed.

There are so many others, many of them prominent in today's news who, if the world was fair, deserved her fate far more than she did. It fills me with rage that they're still here, and she's not.

Right now, everything stinks.

August 21st: Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day



It is not surprising news that fanfiction writers are highly underappreciated.

There’s something wrong with the numbers: let’s take a popular fic with almost 4k hits. For let’s say 700 readers, it will get about 50 comments and 300 Kudos (those numbers are just an example, sometimes it’s worse than that). Maybe I’m being too kind, maybe not, but things stay the same; there’s something wrong here. Can you see it?

It takes us days, weeks, sometimes months to write a story for you. We write for ourselves yes, but we also write to share. We write to offer you content about your favourite characters. We write to bring our and your ships to life. It takes you a fraction of second to leave a Kudos, ten seconds to one, two or a few minutes to leave a comment.

And here lies our problem: there’s no proper sharing if there’s no proper feedback. An author not getting comments is generally a sad author. If I didn’t get feedback I’d wonder what’s the point in keeping on writing. A comment makes a writer’s day, most of the time even motivates them to write more.

Another important thing thrandythefabulous and I noticed: why on Earth do so many readers don’t comment (even kudos) if the fic has been up for a little more than a week or two? Why? Your feedback is still welcomed and much appreciated.

We write for ourselves, but also we write for you. And sadly, many readers are being quite… ungrateful, when giving feedback is the least they can do to thank the people offering them stories for free.

So, before we get started on our little day, let’s talk about comments:

It doesn’t matter if other readers already said what you wanted to say, we’ll still love reading it again in your words.

It doesn’t matter the fic has been up for weeks or months or years; comments on those ones are unexpected and so, it makes them ever better.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have much to say, we’ll be glad anyway.

Most authors leave the comment section open to people who don’t have an Archive of Our Own (AO3) account, which means you can still… comment! How amazing is that.


That brings us to our little Fanfiction Writers Appreciation Day.

The point of this day is simple; on August 21st, writers and readers alike would go on AO3 (or any fanfiction website really), on Tumblr, and leave a comment on their favourite fics (even the fics they enjoyed!) and/or send their authors a message about their works.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve already or never commented. It doesn’t matter if the author doesn’t know about this post. It doesn’t matter if the author already knows how much you love their work.

Just let writers know you love the fics they write for you, simple as that!

And well, don’t forget to keep leaving a Kudos and a comment in the future, and make writers happy!

To each and every one of my Canadian friends--on and off flist! Canadia is where all the best tv shows are shot, right? And where Canadian Actor Bingo is played? Oh, Canada!

I'm just distracted these days. I looked at the friending thing, and while I'd like to, I don't have spoons right now to decide what I want to tell people to make you *like* me.

So, you know, no posts here are ever locked, but feel free to friend away, if you wish. I usually reciprocate. Or, I'll stalk you sometime when I have the attention span, and ingratiate myself personally.

And now it's time to hunt down some carrots and zucchini and that pot of hummus. Yum!
