So, you know how livejournal's gonna turn into facebook, and TPTB think criticzing users are fucking assholes who are just out to make their life harder? )

Yeah, here are some Dreamwidth invite codes (for more invite codes or giving away spare ones go here.


I'm thinking the more failjay users switch to DW (or other sites), the less people can say 'but aaaaaall my friends are here at lj!' Of course, I will use my paid account till it runs out (summer next year) but this really feels like the end of a very long line. :(

Thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] master_kogane for the links. ♥

I AM DONE WITH EXAMS, PEOPLE, DONE! Except the presentation, I still have to do that one. So, naturally, I'm sitting here in my undies; but it's cool, they're all black and smooth! And hey, yesterday, I didn't even get out of my bathrobe at all so I think I'm definitely moving towards dressing decently again and will be ready to go outside any day now. Still suffering from a bit of post-examination depression though. You know, the one where you're so happy to be free that you want to rip out you eyeballs and don't know what to do first because all those things that you were dreaming of doing once you're free again; that had you waking up in the middle of the night, screaming 'SPOILERS!!!' - there's kinda a lot of it and the day still has only 24 hours.

Anyway, will try and catch up with my flist eventually. But now, off to have another bath! \o/

Btw, just got a cramp in my hand from trying to organize my galleries. Eljay's gallery system isn't very well organized, is it? Or am I just too thick to get it? Easily adding tags and searching by tags is what I want. Or is there a client that lets you add tags and search existing galleries? Hmm, will have to investigate (damn, there goes my bath...) How is everyone else organizing their gifs and stuff?

First off, on a more personal note... )

Now, on to wilder, wetter spheres! I might as well have called this "Star Trek: My Variations Of Cheese."

This is basically what happens when I think about where Kirk would take Spock if they'd still have Halloween (or go undercover on a pirate-controlled planet to secure the continued supply of rum to Starfleet) and no one stops me. Yes, it started with one fugly wallpaper just before Halloween and I just kept coming back to it. BECAUSE IT MAKES ME HAPPYYYYYY.

I wonder what it would look like in a more turquoise tone, or golden... )

Here are a couple icons made from the wallpapers resp. textures made from them. )

So, there's a new layout. HURRAH. The code was written by the obviously enormously talented [livejournal.com profile] toledan_night (here). I changed the colour scheme, added a new header and background; and I gotta say, I kinda like it. :) Not quite done, though.

Changing one's layout: A personality test )

In private detecting news, I will FINALLY go and watch Sherlock Holmes on Tuesday. Anyone wanna join? LOOK AT THESE PICS AND TELL ME YOU DON'T WANT TO WATCH IT (AGAIN) )

[livejournal.com profile] nairie, [livejournal.com profile] frightened_eyes, [livejournal.com profile] shivaluna and I talked about how until now Trek fandom was like the house you lived in your whole life. There's dad you sit with at the kitchen table and talk about stuff and life and what you're supposed to do with it. And with your cool aunt you sit for hours at the window in the attic and talk about all the places you want to go to and and what you're willing to do to get there. Of course, there's also your older brother who's rather complicated and a little bit troubled but he always takes you to exciting places and you learn a lot just by being with him. You also like the distant cousin even though he never quite seems to fit in because he just keeps ignoring the rules (secretly, that's why you like him because he's doing it in a pretty cool way). And then there's grandpa who everyone looks up to because he built this house and he's still a shipload of fun for the stories he tells are liquid awesome and the beginning of everything!

Once in a while everyone gets to be bitchy and stupid but generally everybody's having a grand time.

But! Grandpa was recently cloned in a strange but totally scientific way and now all the new kids come to your house and want to spend time with him and say 'grandpa' is a stupid name and clone!grandpa is way cooler than original!grandpa anyway. (Admittedly, unlike original!grandpa he goes bowling instead of playing cards and is fashionable and stuff...) And the new kids lock themselves in the bathroom all the time where they make weird noises, they use totally new ingredients when cooking and the house smells for hours. However, the house hasn't been that exciting in a long time.

Summarily, we should have two bathrooms.

And this is where the story unexpectedly ends without an ending. ;)

mine is a gradually changing layout. it now has dots. riots on the street! who knows what's coming next week?

unrelatedly, since i started my training/work 2 weeks ago i finally find myself in a position where i can appreciate people warning for not-work-safe stuff on their site (and am very glad i picked a seat where no one but my dirty-minded colleague can see what's on my screen).
not quite work-safe icon:

do you need a reason for this? )

i'm crying out for jellyfish/human! (yes, here's looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] master_kogane, i need you in my hour of, um, need!) it's so freaking cold and clammy-wet here, and all i can do is remember the australian sun glistening down on the ocean, knowing all the wondrous things going on deep down.

it could be like that story with the mermaid and her bloke; only exciting and gripping, and with porn. it's actually love at first sight because the man could never find true satisfaction with 4-limbed humans, and the jellyfish is so thrilled by all his human's orifices. and they probably have also great personalities. but it's ...complicated because the jellyfish's secretion is slightly lethal and their first time goes horribly wrong and sweet tears mix with salty seawater. and then there's hurt/comfort. and they figure out how they can be together by...by...using condoms. er. or somethin'.


because it's my birthday in 3 days?

until then i'll comfort myself with [livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings 's Read My Mind, tentacle porn of a more mechanical nature.

eta: this prompt's bearded alternative-universe version can be found here and is written by [livejournal.com profile] master_kogane. i thank her muchly for making me scream at work! :)

when you advertise a 'Metal Light Bulb Ring' (no kidding!), dear jeweller, in a fancy bag with fake bling all over too, you surely mean a ...special gift for the man of one's choice to put over his bulging ....er, you know what. so why not avoid all the (or at least some of it) embarrassment and put it plainly as "Bling for your Thing"?

seriously, the light bulb thing would just put me off.

otherwise, go chrismas present!
(just make sure the kids aren't around and cry for you to try it out...)

dear driver of the 'Lube Mobile' i saw driving by today,

thank you so much for letting me know. i myself don't need you, coz one of the in-built features of my 'love tunnel' is lube. but would i be a fanfic writer and the boys would be in dire need of lube, i know who'd they call, the Lube Mobile!

- "hey..yeah, we need lube, like, right now. we don't have any. but, you know, we really want some."
- ::honk, honk:: "which colour would you like? flavour? some ice-cream as well? to lick off of your pretty friend here? he looks like he's got beautiful skin, made to lick off ice cream of it.. ::wink,wink::
- "er."
- "we really just wanna fuck. you know. like animals, just with lube."

"Blogs gesperrt wegen Potter-Sex" is the actually important article. but "Harry Potter liebt Männer" won't let me rest.

"Welche gefährlichen Abenteuer muss Harry Potter diesmal bestehen? Welcher Mitschülerin gibt er den ersten Kuss? Schafft er es, den bösen Voldemort endgültig zu besiegen? Die Antworten auf solche Fragen brennen den meisten Harry-Potter-Fans vor dem Erscheinen des sechsten Bandes auf den Nägeln. Einen großen Teil der Fangemeinde des Zauberlehrlings aber interessiert nichts weniger als das. Sie malen sich stattdessen aus, wie Harry, endlich erwachsen, die Zauberschule Hogwarts verlässt - und seine Neigungen in einer schwulen Lebensgemeinschaft mit seinem Erzfeind Draco Malfoy auslebt."

"Möchtegern-Autoren finden ein fertiges Universum mit genau definierten Charakteren vor"

"Die Erfinder der Figuren sind natürlich nicht so glücklich mit diesen Geschichten."

yes, we completely disregard canon, we need it only for providing us with names because we can't think of any names for ourselves so we have to use the ones 'real' authors give us, coz ficcers are just "wannabe" authors. yes, of course are there bad authors, just like there are bad journalists, who have no idea what they're writing about and are too lazy for proper research and use their time instead on finding the simplest and most boring words and phrases.

also? fucker. there are creators who do approve of fanfiction and encourage it. creators who have the guts to deal with homoerotica. joss is god.

go and find yourself a job that doesn't involve using words in public. because... seriously? you just can't.

oh, and btw, do *you* know that the hp verse contains more characters than harry and draco? because hp fans do.
