To Life Until Peter was found out and brought in, this was it. The problem was that no one but them were looking for him.

Heartbreakingly sad, but lovely.

Stars Shining Bright Above You When he dreams, he dreams in wide, sweeping epics or in perfect rosebuds of vignettes. The importance of dreams and how they can change you.

Sirius dreams about a man he's never met. Interesting ending.

Into Every Corner He falls in love with the music, and just maybe the man singing it too.

Adorbale fic with a besotted Sirius. Who doesn't love a besotted Sirius?

Team Canon
A-like Singing the Blues As the war slowly came to consume their lives, "London Calling" were two words neither of them ever wanted to hear.

Very short fic that really captures the despair of the first war. So ouchy.

Health and mom, arghhh )
I just read the whole "enhancement" livejournal has going on. Jesus Christ on crackers. These people really have no idea what their users want. My flist is full of rage about this cross-posting to Twitter and Facebook. I don't have either of these blog sites, but I don't particularly want my comments going to someone else's site. I mostly post fic, but I behind the flock, I also talk about work, my struggles to put my marriage back together, mental and physical health issues, and a variety of sundry things I don't want broadcast to people I don't know. Who thought this was a good idea? Want I want to know is what exactly this means:

  • Once you enable Facebook and/or Twitter Connect, only your public LiveJournal posts (those marked as "Everyone") will default to cross-post, but you can override this on a per-post basis beneath the text box.
Um... so if I don't have a Facebook or Twitter does this not matter to me? Can my posts be pirated over to someone else's Facebook or Twitter (and doesn't Twitter have an extreme character limit? how would that even work?) without my permission?
  • If you set your default to cross-post comments, ALL of your comments, including screened and Friends Only comments, can be cross-posted whenever you choose. Only public comments, however, will be preselected to cross-post. If you wish to cross-post a Friends Only or screened comment, you will need to select the cross-posting option manually when you post the comment. Of course, you can override your settings on a per-comment basis, so you have complete control over whether to cross-post each and every comment.
Here is where it gets interesting isn't it? If I'm trading comments with a friend on a post that is on her LJ, can she be porting my comments over to her Facebook or Twitter? What if it is an intensely personal conversation. That's just not right. Am I reading this right?

I have reasons to stay here. Namely everything is already here. I'd like to move to DW but there is no remusxsirius comm, no accio_rs_fics, no rs_prophet, no fandomsecrets, and while everyone talks about moving over, my DW is pretty lonely with only a few friends. Most of my "friends" are imported LJers from my flist. I have very few DW friends.

I like the concept of DW, but I don't like the price. I've already let my livejournal lapse, just sort of waiting to see if I'd have a reason to renew. Doesn't really look like it, even though I miss some of the features. DW doesn't have those features yet and when my profile, which I worked long and hard on, was imported it was just a mess.

I just don't know what to do. I'm not going to delete this journal and I don't feel the need to privacy lock my flock posts because I trust you guys. But occasionally I make an open post about what I'm doing in fandom. I did the other day and a friend and I talked about her life for a bit. For her privacy, I edited the post so it was friends only. That's just common courtesy.  But say I post a story and for giggles some asswipe flames me (I've actually never gotten a flame on LJ, but this is hypothetical), could they post their nasty comment to Facebook or Twitter? Could they post my story to their Facebook or Twitter? How exactly does this work.

In other news, I refuse to refresh my friends list because I am so nervous about the results from [ profile] mp_ldws . I am walking away from the computer now, la la la la la. I'm a big scardy-cat.

Tom left for Alaska one year ago today. In a few weeks time he'll be home and we will try to put the pieces back together. I really think I'm doing the right thing. Whatever insanity that held him in it's grip seems to have cooled. He sounds like himself again, but I know I'm taking risk. In almost two months we will have been married for 14 years. Sorry to keep it so short but this phone sucks.

The pay increases are close. We are doing a presentation for HR to explain our very technial jobs.

To celebrate and siphon off some nerves I sent Tom this text:

Don't get carried away. I just want to know if you are providing for yourself. (I asked him if he would head off to the Alaskan outback with a chainsaw slung over his shoulder. He chose to interpret this NOT as the lumberjack joke it was but as me expressing concern for his wellbeing. *rolls eyes*)

Incidently, our pay increases are around the the corner and we are looking at comfortable bumps in the 20-30% ranges. Hahahahaha. Just so we're clear. You really can't come home to

I'm such a stinker.
