spn_cinema is still open for claims if you haven't snagged a film already to fic or art, what're you waiting for?

I'm pretty excited - I've claimed Starman to fic, and I've already started writing that one. I thought it would fit well for Sam during Mystery Spot, after Dean's apparently died and Sam's gone off the rails...

And for art I've just snagged myself a second film - Hero. It's visually stunning, so there's plenty to get my artistic teeth into (and just hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew! LOL)

Stolen from dugindeep...

Here's the meme:

and here's my song with a colour (black is all colours combined, after all). This is still one of my all time favourite Keane songs; it's so haunting.

A pome.

For Rachel


My friend, she was my best,
Has stones in her head;
Tumours that grew in spite of the knife,
Untimely, uninvited, malicious.

I want to be cremated, she says,
Make things easy.
No headstone, she says.
Carrying them round is enough.

Is anyone around on  Saturday, August 26 @ 10am CST (which is 16:00 BST) and could make a claim for me for round 8 of spn_cinema? Please, pretty please?

I'm going to be at a folk festival so won't be able to do it in person, and as I've already started writing, I'd hate to miss the chance to claim the film I want!

Cheers me dears!

I can't remember how I came across this now but I've sent off for my sketchbook. It sounds like such a wonderful project, and I'd LOVE to go to Brooklyn just to browse through their hundreds and thousands of sketchbooks.

I thought I'd post it here in case any of my Flisties fancied having a go - you can put anything and everything in your book, you don't have to be an 'artist' to contribute.

Thought I ought to do a round up post of my own items for the last ever GISHWHES, even though most of them were a bit crappy die to lack of time and access to resources, so don't feel obliged to scrutinise everything!

My Gish Team rocked this year (in spite of having a couple of absentees and some of us preoccupied with other things), I'm really proud of us, but at the same time very sad this is the last GISHWHES. What on earth am I going to do with all the 'possibly useful' junk I've accumulated 'just in case'? LOL

I'm going to do a GISH-post of my stuff when I get back from Liverpool but here's a short vid of most of our team's stuff (minus some items we're waiting for pictures of).

Spread the word to writers in the Marvel Fandom too, there are a bunch of Stucky fics on there.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] meus_venator at ATTENTION AUTHORS: New site posting fanfics without permission

GRRRR, stuff like this makes me so angry. I just found my story, THE THAW as well as my story SNOW FALLING posted on a third party site without permission, complete with illustrations.

The Poster: JenBBenson does give credit, but had absolutely no permission to repost these. Unless I am misunderstanding what WattPad is, this isn't right. In the same folder/area there are also a whole slew of other folks fan fictions taken directly from AO3 and reposted IN FULL, including a story by [livejournal.com profile] alycat, [livejournal.com profile] fufaraw's What Was Lost, and Sharp Teeth short story by hellhoundsprey. [livejournal.com profile] deanshot checked into it more closely after I did my initial post and found they also had two by [livejournal.com profile] dragonspell and 2 stories by [livejournal.com profile] strive2bhappy along with Honour in Sacrifice by [livejournal.com profile] sylsdarkplace. She also spotted [livejournal.com profile] sasha_dragon's j2 breathe verse there as well as stories by keepaofthecheez and [livejournal.com profile] homo_pink's Devil & Doll Hotel. There are tonnes more. All I imagine posted in full without permission.


The folder is called Escapade and author is JenBBenson I urge you to check it out and spread the news and complain right away if your stories are there. You really have to hunt for it at the bottom of the main page, but there is a support area where you can file a copyright violation.

I'm not going to be around much over the next week or so - we're off to London to watch the athletics World Championships (Usain Bolt and Mo Farrah tonight, woo hoo!) and this week away also incoveniently coincides with GISHWHES.

So while I still can, I'll levitate effortlessly across your screens, like this wee bird. *grin*

So sad to hear Robert Hardy has died, but what a man he was. Expert in the longbow and an historian, as well as a damn fine actor.

Oh lordy. I'm hiding in my front room trying not to think about what the two lads with a hedge-trimmer and chainsaw are doing in our back garden. The other young bloke who was supposedly in charge seems to have buggered off somewhere, and I just had to explain to the two he left behind that nope, I wasn't paying them all that money to just trim the undergrowth back, I expected them to use said chainsaw and massacre the jungle to a level that meant we could then do some tidying up and expect it to be reasonably under control for a while.

The skinny hedge-trimmer weilder wasn't happy, the other wider guy, who only seems to be there to hold the ladder, was on board with it. They are gossiping about girlfriends and haircuts like teenage girls, and the way they are messing about on the ladder has me flinching. There's no way they've ever done any health and safety training and I dread to think what damage they might do to themselves - either falling off the damn ladder or waving the seven foot long hedge trimmer about.

If I'd known this bunch of supposedly professional tree surgeons was just three twenty-year-olds with power tools, I wouldn't have been so quick to let them loose in the garden!

Oh and they are having to climb over the wall at the back with a giant bucket to clear the waste and shred it - next door's car is there... I really hope they don't damage THAT!

I can now reveal who my authors are for the J2RB - milly_gal chose my first prompt, and amypond45 snagged my second! Woot!

And I get to write for the awesome dollarformyname - though since the reveals list is out, I'm a little daunted that dollar's other author is blackrabbit42, because I know she's going to write something fab that will probably put my idea to shame LOL.

I only realised after I jumped on this one that I'd done a quicky_bang for zubeneschamali before, so I hope this isn't too much, going for a second one!

Sad Sam Fireworks
I think Sam would be less sad and more freaked out, to be honest. Clicking on the pic will take you to the original photo by Brent Moore on Flickr.
