Fanfiction List  
Beneath the cut is a list of all of the fanfiction that I have posted in one of several places - sometimes more - on the 'net. Usually Dreamwidth (formerly on my LiveJournal), at my website, or over on the AO3's Archive of Our Own. I've linked to all three of those if a work is posted at all three, otherwise, only to the ones where it lives.

Fics listed beyond... )

sort of an app review  
I tend to do a large portion of my writing by hand. It works better for me and its far more portable to a lot more places than a laptop - pens and paper travel easily and don't have additional 'needs'. But there is one big downfall of this process - having to type up all of those words once I've written them down.

In a way, the write by hand and type up later bit isn't a bad gig, b/c I edit when I'm typing. But it's also a huge pain in the ass for anything longer than about 1000 words.

Enter the app in question: My Script nebo. With it, you can use your tablet to write by hand with your tablet 'pen' or stylus of choice, just like writing on notebook paper. The app then converts your handwriting to typed text. And it's pretty damned good at it too. Even when your handwriting is kind of shitty - it still 'reads' it pretty well. I've only had a few words or letters that it got completely wrong. And it's a simple fix to 'erase' the wrong word and re-write the correct one.

There's a little bit of a learning curve with the write -> tap to convert -> tap to 'set' -> tap to edit set-up, but once you get used to it, it's pretty sweet.

And since it has a sort of 'never-ending' page, there's no turning and you can always be writing at whatever section of the page is most comfortable for you - top, middle, bottom. I tend to end up with garbage handwriting near the bottom of a page, so scrolling the page up so there's never really a 'bottom' is great.

This is sort of the 'next gen' of the LiveScribe smart pen + My Script for LiveScribe combo. I have (though don't really use much anymore) the smart pen and you use a special paper/notebooks, then you could use My Script to convert it from handwriting to text in a text document. However, it was complete garbage at reading the handwriting. Even after a couple years' worth of updates. So I always spent nearly as much time fixing the text as it would've taken to just type the shit myself.

This app is SO much better than that.

It's not free, but given how well it works, it's worth the price. It'll save you on notebook paper and pens. XD

friday five....  

1. Have you ever bobbed for Apples?

nah - i'm not a fan of sticking my face in a bucket of water

2. Do you like a regular or hard apple cider?

i like regular apple cider, but probably wouldn't turn down the hard stuff

3. Do you have a special type of apple that you prefer over others?

for eating - pink lady; for pie - granny smith; for baked - fuji, i think

4. Have you ever made baked apples?

based on q3 - of course - they're tasty af

5. Who is the apple of your eye?

erm - not sure anyone is right now, but i'll point you toward [twitter.com profile] chuckwendig and his frequent reviews (sometimes a little odd/wonky) of heirloom apples

seeking a beta reader for long fic  
So - I have this fic that I wrote up for a slow burn bigbang (the comm apparently gave up the ghost) and it's in need of a beta. It's a completed fic, approximately 47,000 words. Suits fandom, Mike and Harvey, plus a hoard of others, alternate universe where they work in a brothel.

I'm happy to offer up additional details for decision making - there are content warning eligible things. If there's something you're worried about, lemme know and I'll skim through to check.

Hit me up here, or message me.

v late Gatecon report...  
I'm a little bit late writing up my Gatecon report. Whoops!

Granted, I didn't see a whole lot of the convention outside the photo ops, so I don't really know how much of a report this will be.

day-by-day things of the 'gate )

friday five.... a little late  
i was in Vancouver on Friday surrounded by SG-1/SGA/SGU actors etc, so couldn't do this then... so here we go:

1. Have you ever experienced a hurricane firsthand?

-- yup... one passed right over the house where my parents currently live a few years back - that fucker came waaaaaaaaaaaaaay on inland, the eye passed over the house. and hurricane Harvey wasn't too far away last year - but we got edge-rain more than anything else.


2. Have you ever experienced outside heat over 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celcius)?

lol - i live in south Texas - heat over 100F happens for about 3.5 months straight every year


3. When and where was the coldest temperature you have ever experienced?

erm... up-state NY something or other below zero? i have nfi....


4. Is your household prepared for a possible power outage of two to seven days?

not really - but more b/c it gets to over 100F here for so much of the summer than anything else. it's hard to weather heat like that without fans.

5. Do you have a go bag?

no, but i probably should. though, i'm one of those ppl who can 'pack in a hurry' and i know where my things are.

Dresden Files Cooperative Card Game - a review  
I'm going to talk about playing all 3 variations - physical board game, Steam and phone app.

Once upon a time, there was a kickstarter for the DFCCG run by [twitter.com profile] fredhicks and his company Evil Hat Productions. (If you like RPGs and the like, hit them up - they are ALL about the games!) So, I pledged my $69 and waited and waited and waited and got the 1st chapter of Peace Talks as a perk for being a backer (omg book nao pls). Then the game arrives. (There are also expansion card packs available and more probably coming as new books get written.)

The box is gorgeous, the artwork is fantastic. The rules are weird - in a good way - and all of the cards have details you need so you don't have to try to remember everything. Which is good, because, like Harry's life, this game is hard. Deliberately.

But it's not unwinnable! It takes some strategy choices and a little bit of luck.

To go along with the Kickstarter, Hidden Achievement developed digital versions! So you can take your frustratingly fun game along with you wherever you go.

So, first up, the physical board game version )

Then the Steam version )

the friday five...  


1, What is your favourite food?

chocolate - in all it's forms... because, yes, there is even room for white chocolate - primarily when pretzels are dipped into it


2, What is your favourite food preparation method?

anything that doesn't involve me having to stand over the stove for long periods of time - the 'set it and forget it' method is my fave. aka: the crock pot sees a lot of use

though - i will have to say, my tiny George Foreman grill is getting a workout b/c it's super convenient


3, What is your favourite cuisine or style of cooking?

erm - quick and easy? or slow and easy? if it's something i don't have to babysit, i'm p much sold.

i get a lot of recipes and such from Budget Bytes b/c it's usually p inexpensive and most of the time is p quick to whip together.


4, Do you have any dietary restrictions and if so what are they?

i didn't until recently - i can't handle cow milk anymore. if it's going to be baked or cooked - something where the milk sugar will get broken down and the like, is okay, but otherwise - nope. fortunately, there are a lot of substitutes that work for like 90% of recipes. things like pudding - where the milk fat is doing the binding work - are complicated, but most everything else, there's a work-around or alternative for out there in net-land.


5, If you could introduce the whole world to one ingredient to improve their culinary experience, what would that be and why?

smoked paprika. and yes - the smoked variety. you have to be careful not to overuse it, b/c it is in the pepper family, so it can be a spicy kick, but it is SO goddamned good

Sue Grafton's Alphabet Mysteries...  
So, I recently finished all 25 novels in the Sue Grafton 'alphabet' series with Kinsey Millhone. I thought I'd write up some mini-reviews. Assuming I can remember enough about them all, I started the first one back at the end of December.

(I have now officially read something like 27 books in 2018.)

A to Y... there is no Z )

can i get an assist?  
I'm working on a thing and I need....

butt shots.

Celebrities would be best. And I have a few (Gatecon is good for this sort of thing... what? they're right THERE!), but I need more.

The clearer the shot of the butt, the better. Clothed is okay! I don't necessarily need nekkid butts.

Not picky at all with regard to size, shape, race, gender, etc etc etc... =)

I promise - I'll share what this is for when I'm done. XD

new fone - who dis?  
Same price, new phone, new carrier, plus a shitload of American Airlines miles! That's how you phone and go vacay at the same time.

Sprint has a deal where, if you're a new customer, and you get a new phone with them, you earn 20k AA miles, plus up to 5k additional miles each year just for being a customer. (And they'll buy out your old phone from your old carrier - restrictions, etc...) So, I did that. It also comes with a free subscription to Hulu - which is nice, even though it's the commercials-having version. So, doing that 'setting up the new phone' thing and all that. (tho it's kinda giving me a headache, but *shrug*)

In other news... I.... got an ARC of "Brief Cases" (Jim Butcher Dresden Files story collection) - and... I have no idea why. I mean, I guess I could've signed up for something somewhere or won something, but, holy buckets the shit show my life has been for the last several months means, fuck if I know. Either way - cool. I dunno if I'm supposed to do more than read it - it didn't come with any instructions. (and i thought the package was some other thing I'd ordered)

planning for Gatecon...  
So I'm working out my plan for Gatecon 2018 and I'm running into a couple of snags. I think I can wrangle up the funds for covering my portion of the hotel (\o/ tax refund). However, I'm slightly short on frequent flyer miles for nabbing my plane tix. =(

Anyone have roughly 7,000 American Airlines frequent flyer miles they're willing to part with and send in my direction?

I'd be willing to trade a bucketload of icons, some banner graphics, wallpapers, or fic, hell, I'll even bake cookies if that's your thing.

snowflake_challenge - Day 15  
Day 15

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share your love and squee as loud as you want to.


Dear Fandom -

You're still a weird and fucked-up place, but that's actually mostly a good thing. Fandom is how you find new things get into and how you get other people into new things. It's also where you meet new people and make weird decisions to do things like travel to conventions and meet-ups and book-signings and stuff.

This would be longer and stuff, except that my brain is fried and focus is totally not a thing happening right now. But - anyway - Fandom, ttly fucked up and weird, but we like you that way.
