Clearly, the scariest season yet.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan for finding this. [Source]

Time travellers of the world? Now would be a good time to climb into those machines of yours... *prays for the entire world to survive this*

Saw this on Tumblr and needed to share.

And no, I will not be grateful or happy that The Normal Heart won Best TV Movie. Yes, this is a big and important category to win, but it does in no way minimize the other losses, be it for Matt Bomer, Mark Ruffalo, Julia Roberts, Ryan Murphy or Larry Kramer. (I'm not counting Jim Parsons, Alfred Molina or Joe Mantello, even though they were all amazing, because they just had to lose to Matt. Yes, Matt. Not Martin Friggin' Freeman.)

The only thing I am grateful for is the fact that I got to thank Matty personally for his portrayal of Felix Turner, that I got to tell him that his performance helped me find closure after almost three decades. He has said time and again that people's reactions to the movie blew him away and touched him, so I do hope that having a weird fan from Germany ambush him in some dirty, industrial corner of Queens to sincerely thank him for The Normal Heart did mean something to him.

It meant the world to me.

Even after sleeping on it, even after having over a day to get over it, I'm still beyond enraged.

You see this?

matt+mark emmy

In my headcanon, in my reality, this is what actually happened. This is Matt Bomer with the Emmy he oh-so-rightfully won. With Mark hiding his Emmy somewhere because he, too, of course, won. This is not the ONLY Emmy The Normal Heart won, with Matty and Mark showing it off and smiling into the cameras while inwardly not trying to hulk out over the fucking injustice of it all.

more ranting behind the cut )

I promise I'm done ranting now. I just needed to get this out of my system.

Seriously.

You're completely changing the design without prior notice, which results in LJ being down - again, without prior warning.

Now that the deed is done, there still is no official announcement.

You want feedback on what I think about the new design and the way you treat your paying customers?



In other words:

So, I'm working my way through all the feedback that kind readers left on my MMOM fics...

...and I'm suddenly thinking, "Hey, waitaminit, I already responded to this!"

And then I'm thinking, "Why's there suddenly an obvious response from me posted as comment to my own entry?!

And then I'm thinking, "Why are there only four comments (two of them from yours truly!) when gmail tells me there should be ten pieces of feedback?!"

Fuck you, LJ. You've deleted/lost/otherwise got rid of comments to my entries! I have no clue how far back this goes, because I began responding to feedback for my fic posted on May 7 (!!!) and I don't want to double-check even older posts. Either way, you suck, LJ. SUCK!

So, apologies to anyone who receives any responses again. I just want to be courteous and thank everyone for leaving feedback, and if LJ makes it look as if I haven't yet...well, prepare to be spammed. *helpless shrug*

I'm just glad that I use gmail to archive all of my feedback so I can go back and reread the kind comments there...since apparently LJ is completely incapable of leaving my entries alone. *fumes*

So, I wake up, grab my tablet and go online to check my emails and flist while still lounging in bed (dontcha love the 21st century?!) when I realize that something is missing. Or, more precisely, my flist isn't spammed with dozens of new entries as it usually is. Then I scroll down and see my own last entries...and in my A/N, the comm name for [livejournal.com profile] mmom is striked through.

My first thought is that I was too stupid to get a four-letter name right, but then the lack of new entries suddenly makes sense.

I go to check out the comm in question, and lo and behold, it's suspended. SUSPENDED!!! Seriously, LJ?! For what?! Masturbation?! Last time I checked, adult content was still allowed here. Or did our Russian overlords change the rules?! Again?!

Just a quick heads up:

LJ hasn't sent me any notification emails in at least three days.

I have no way of knowing if you commented on one of my posts or replied to one of my comments.

Worse still, I'm not informed if there are any entries waiting to be approved in the comms I'm modding.

I track certain comms and personal journals (the ones that are important to me) because oftentimes I don't have time to peruse my entire flist. That way, I at least know there's a new entry that's worth my time, and I check it out directly. That, also, doesn't work now, obviously.

IT FRUSTRATES ME TO NO END.

I don't have time to spend hours on LJ due to RL issues, so I might miss new entries from you (the ones I'm stalking tracking), and I honestly don't have time to constantly double-check my own journal or any journal/comm I might have left a comment, just to see if someone responded. I'm sorry. Please rest assured I'm not ignoring you. I'm just...ignoring you. :(

*kicks LJ*

Really?

Once again, I'm not receiving all notifications, be it about your comments or new entries or whatever.

So I'm back to being pissed off.

Also, I realized that some of my icons are missing. Or, at least, not loading. Because LJ informs me that I'm almost at my limit (279 out of 280 possible icons are "uploaded" though a good 20 or so are clearly missing). I don't know if they're gone for good or just not loading at the moment because Stupid Goat Frank (TM) is once again nibbling on the wires and cables or whatever.

Either way, me no likey.

Apologies in advance for potential lack of responding. I just might not know you posted something. *despairs*

I feel a bit like Tony, who counts it as success when he's not accused of committing murder for a whole year.

Granted, it's a bit different in my case, but still.

I've just been accused of plagiarism by someone named "drtib". I don't even know that person. I also don't know which story I've allegedly plagiarized, or, as she (I'm assuming it's a she) puts it: "You stole my story and converted it into a laughable example of imitation mediocrity."

Well, yes.

When I replied and asked for clarification (for my own amusement mostly, because seriously, with my Muses, there's no need to steal anyone's ideas), I was still not told which story we're talking about here. Instead, I was called "scum." I was also informed that I've been "exposed" to my "ex-readers". And, of course, "everyone is laughing at [me] behind [my] back."

I sincerely hope nobody's pulling any muscles whilst guffawing.

So, to all of my ex-readers out there: It was good knowing you. Please feel free to drop by again once you realize that this drtib person really has their head up their...buttocks. (Honestly? I don't think any of my readers actually believe any of these accusations. For starters, they wouldn't know which story we're talking about here...! LOL!)

I'd be only too happy to look at the presumably ripped off story, if for no other reason than to figure out where the accused stealing took place. Too bad I'm not being given the pertinent information to go look. One can only wonder why.

(I don't remember who said it, but basically, there are only seven original story ideas in the world. Try not finding potential similarities when looking at thousands of fanfics. Doesn't mean anyone stole anything from anyone else. *eyeroll*)

I'd also like to point out--as some of my (maybe now ex-)readers from the good ol' X Files days might remember--that I was the victim of a very nasty plagiarism case years ago. For more info, see here. So the whole concept of plagiarism is a very touchy subject for me. Being accused of stealing anyone's story without proof or even the courtesy of naming the darn story in the first place therefore makes me feel...annoyed.

I was going to try and start writing my [livejournal.com profile] ncis_ficathon  story today, but for some reason, I'm not in the mood anymore. Who knows, I'd probably only end up stealing someone's idea again anyway. /sarcasm

Not sure if I'm actually gonna post this at the Shack, since it's crack!fic and really ridiculous and badly written (well, it is supposed to be crack!fic...), but after watching the NCIS season opener, I had to get this off my chest. So, here we go:

Title: Veritaserum
Author: Gaby
Author's Notes: This sprang to mind after watching the season opener of NCIS. Also inspired by some of my flist's comments about that episode. You were all so friggin' right, gals!
Additional Notes: This is Tony's POV and is actually set during the episode, pretty much near the end of it, in the corridor. (Not saying more to avoid spoiling people)
Warning: Crack!fic. Please keep in mind what Tony's been...taking in this episode.
Spoilers: TOTAL SPOILER for S07xE01
Summary: Tony's thoughts about life, the universe, Gibbs, rescue missions and everything.

Trying my best to work on my [livejournal.com profile] ncis_bigbang fic. Which is due in, like, two weeks. Minimum word count: 20K.

I am not inspired.

The Muses are not cooperating.

It's like pulling teeth, for crissakes!

I've finally managed to pass the 2,000 words mark. In other words: TWO THOUSAND. That's ten friggin' percent of what I need. *headdesk*

What makes this worse is the fact that I've got tons of plotbunnies biting me, and they would all be so damn easy to write! I'm inspired to work on at least three of them. Right now. On the spot. Without even having to think about the story. I'd just start and hammer it all out and be done in a couple of hours, I swear!

But I've got the damn deadline, I've got the damn word count, and I've got a story idea that is so damn close to my heart that I really want to do it justice, and so I'm freaking at the mere idea of it not coming out the way I want, and that's exactly what's happening because the Muses are off doing something else and I'm second guessing myself and ARGH.

Or maybe it's just the fact that after writing two bigbang fics within weeks, I'm all written out and panic at the mere idea of tackling another epic (as opposed to the little ficlets that I am inspired to write).

Or maybe it's the fact that I worked 10+ hours every single day this past week and so all I want to do is spend the weekend vegging out on the couch.

Whatever the reason, I'm frustrated. The venting helped a little. Still not feeling inspired though. LOL! Sigh.
