dirty_diana: old-fashioned typewriter (typewriter)
([personal profile] dirty_diana Oct. 17th, 2017 02:14 pm)
Has it really been over two months since I posted last? ugh. At some point I will babble about the television I've been watching, including The Defenders which I actually enjoyed SORRY to be weird as usual. But before that, I really need a reader for my [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang story?

I do have one beta already on it but I think it came out a little wordy for her to handle on her own. Kara/Mon-El divergence AU, 36k. You don't have to be a hardcore grammar nerd unless that's your thing, here's the list of things that probably need checking:

-did I get excited by an idea and fail to finish the sentence I was working on
-did my phone app insert a word in the middle of a different word just to fuck with me
-is my portrayal of Krypton distractingly weird to someone more familiar with the wider DCU (for this you would only need to read the first 10k!)
-do the action scenes make any sense
-does the rest of it make any sense

If you can only read for one of these things it would be perfectly cool and a ten day or less turnaround would be ideal?

PS it mostly takes place on Daxam, so warnings for Daxam being a terrible place! Nothing graphic though.

And while you are doing that I will try not to flub this [community profile] fandomgrowthexchange deadline, ugh. They have open pinch hits if unlike me you are not already screwing up the whole writing to a schedule thing.

*blows kisses to everyone*
Okay, so, while my picture is really harmless and cute, with a new Bucky (Winter Soldier) Bear and a battered old teddy bear in a new Captain America costume, the story Berceuse by wickedthoughts is Hydra Trash Party, so you need to check the tags, whether the kinks match yours, as my picture only reflects parts of it.

Whoever nominated all of the Numinous World relationships for Holly Poly, I love you. ♥

(If it's not someone reading this, I'm going to be very surprised. Impressed, but surprised.)

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

For the record, I'm avidly watching Star Trek: Discovery every Sunday night. I feel no need for fanfic in Trekdom. But I am a Trek fan and the daughter of a Trek fan.

So: Know that you can talk to me about the new Trek, if you're looking for someone to talk to. :-D

Fandom: Person of Interest
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Reese, Finch, Carter, Root, Shaw, Fusco, Bear, The Machine

Why this piece is awesome: The artist did review/reaction sketches for many episodes of the show (to find at their Deviantart POI gallery), which were always lots of fun and distinctive in style. I'm linking to this Team Machine picture - done in reaction to the show's PCA win - because it has all of the characters of Team Machine at once, which is pretty rare, and it shows well what's so fun about these little sketches.

I somehow didn't see this until [personal profile] elistaire pointed it out just now, but [community profile] hlh_shortcuts sign-ups have been open since 10/06, and will be open through 10/15 — tomorrow!

Coming to it this late, I doubt there's enough time for me to make up my mind whether to play and to compose a sign-up. (You've seen me agonize through these things, right? And I have a lot of hesitation in HL fandom.) But I always read in this exchange fest, and look forward to that reading very much!

As mentioned in the last monthly bulletin, [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico is fundraising via fanwork auction to help Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. Creator sign-ups remain open through tomorrow (10/15). The auction is now scheduled to start on Tuesday 10/17 and close on Monday 10/23.Skimming, I see such fandoms as Agent Carter, Wynonna Earp, Teen Wolf, Supernatural, Stargate, all the Treks, MCU, DCU, HP, BtVS, XF, PoI, Star Wars, and many, many more. (I don't see FK, HL, D&DC, or YB, or any creator names I recognize. Yet?)

Has anyone seen a fan-sponsored effort for the California wildfires? I know that we're all feeling disaster-fatigue at this point! But I'm breathing that air. This latest disaster is no less real than the first. ♥

I know that most of you are probably getting sick of seeing me mention it, but I promise that this will be the last time that I post a link to my virtual garage sale post. That said, if any of you know someone who might potentially be interested in anything listed there, please feel free to pass along the link. I'd really appreciate it.

Also, if anyone knows someone who might be interested in a Roomba (which is listed on that post), please let me know. I'm very much willing to haggle on the price since it's used, but selling it would help me immensely since it's basically the only "big ticket" (so to speak) item that I have left to try selling.

I'm less than $200 away from having enough to cover all of the various bills that will come out of my checking account on November 1st, and from that point forward my finances should be in a much better state. I get three paychecks in November, which is ridiculously helpful all on its own, and I should be getting both a holiday bonus and a raise in December. Add in the tax refund that I should be getting at the beginning of 2018, and for the first time in ages I'm actually not completely panicking about the state of my life in general.
