I'm afraid I can no longer be so lenient with friending. Likewise, I will not be friending back empty journals, journals consisting of nothing but memes, and journals in languages I don't speak. Conversely, all of my fics can be found at the links listed on my userinfo.

Please leave a comment here along with an age statement, and we'll see how things go.

I think it's safe to say we can all celebrate now. In the end, Romney really got spanked. California was a huuuge and much needed victory for Obama. Romney winning would have set us back 100 years. And to that I say...


Bed now. *falls over*

I love starting my day off on the right foot.

First and foremost, I'm going to vote today. First time since... Well, let's just say I didn't vote in the last election. Bad Penny :(((

It's a caramel frappuccino kind of morning. And there may or may not be some Targeting in my future, because I'm feeling like I need to buy all the frivolous things. *G*

Oh, and I finished my TW fic last night, so more yays there. Feeling pretty good today :)))

Morning my lovelies <333

The Fifth Annual
Harry/Draco Art Fest

Gravity [PG] by Mystery Artist

Ah, Spiderman kiss inspiration FTW! Also, the notion of Harry being an acrobatic flyboy doesn't hurt. *G*

Regency H/D so much <333 Also, Draco was made for a frock coat and lace at his throat. *swoons*

Bonus rec!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ♥

So, after nearly a decade at this site, LJ finally does something that makes me actually rage. No popcorn and laughing as the masses storm to news posts complaining, this time I'm actually worried.

A while back I was invited to help out with BETA testing new LJ services (I got this invite via [ profile] lj_releases).

They have just announced BETA testing of a new friendslist.

LJ is planning on redoing everyone's friendslists in the style of the new comment page and update page. They want to copy tumblr and make your friendslist into a dashboard-like system page (infinite scrolling and all). It's also been renamed to "feed" (this I don't mind too much, though). In fact the whole dashboard idea with infinite scrolling wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for the fact that everyone will be locked to one specific layout. The system style comment pages are bad enough, but now I'll have to strain my eyes reading my flist? That defeats the purpose of this entire site. The font, use of whitespace, oversized boxes and UI elements ... all contribute to making the page difficult to read, on a site where all you do is read. Aaaah. Even just the possibility of adjusting the font (style and size) would make this suggestion easier to swallow, but it's still not something I'd want for my journal. It would not improve my LJ experience in any way (in fact it would most likely make my daily LJ activities more time consuming).

Now, I wasn't able to make the BETA page display my own friendslist, so I apologise to the random users who are featured in the screenshot, but to give everyone an idea, the below image shows you what your friendslist probably will look like in a couple of months.

(Click for big)

I never switched over from Dystopia, so that adds to the weirdness. You're going to have to picture this with the standard LiveJournal drop down navigation + no blue sidebar to the left. Click the screenshots for bigger versions.

Top of page with links to journal, archive, profile

Example of text heavy post as displayed on friendslist

New buttons to the right replace the navigation strip. One tab for filters

One tab for Archive/Calendar, you can filter your feed to display posts from one specific date. These buttons follow along as you scroll down the page (infinite scrolling).

All friendslists will look the same.

Snippet from the locked post at [ profile] lj_releases:
The friends page has been redesigned as a system page for all users, and is now available for Beta testers. There is a link at the top of your friends page allowing you to switch between the new and old versions, and will later go into public beta testing. You can switch back and forth between both versions throughout beta testing.


You can also see the proposed changes for yourself by enabling the BETA on your own journal (instructions from [ profile] ruljautonews):
It's trivially easy to test beta features.
1) Go to [ profile] lj_ru_beta and request to join.
2) Wait to get confirmation that you've been accepted into the community (this could take a few hours.)
3) Go to this page and choose Go To under Beta.
4) That's it, you're now testing the beta release. All site-scheme pages should now display a big "BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA BETA" in yellow letters across the top.
5) You could make comments in the [ profile] lj_ru_beta post, but if you do please keep this in mind: the majority of commenters there don't speak English and if they do it's not their primary language. Machine translation of Russian is lousy. "My hovercraft is full of eels" lousy. While you can engage in basic dialogue and get a feel for what the other person is saying, don't get too hung up on anyone's phrasing.

You can easily switch back to the old version.

Make sure you let LJ know what you think of these proposed changes, I can't be the only one who thinks this is a horrible idea.

ETA: It's nice to see that I'm not the only one worried about the proposed changes, but please direct your feedback through the proper channels. This is a private journal, I have no affiliation with LJ. Please also be respectful when addressing the LJ staff. They are just doing their jobs. Thanks!

themostepotente: (AutumnRYOG / smelltheflowers)
* Under normal circumstances, I would've been sorry to see the summer go. But it was unfailingly hot this year, and I do not function well in extreme heat. Autumn is definitely my favourite season, and we do see a bit of everything here in Michigan. I love the smell of burning leaves. I love Halloween. I love the colour changes. And I love the seasonal pumpkin stuffs at Starbucks. I want to jump in a pile of leaves now ♥

* Finally finished season 7 of Supernatural. Am very eager for season 8. You know, it took me at least three damn tries to get into SPN, and I'm glad I persevered. But man, season 1 was tough to get through.

* Had an awesome fandomish get-together Saturday for Avengers frivolity with [ profile] tracy7307, [ profile] valis2, [ profile] venivincere, [ profile] isisanubis, [ profile] kel_reiley, and [ profile] apple_pathways. We had pizza on Avengers' themed plates, and Tracy totes wore a phake arc reactor. Much fun and silliness was had by all ♥

* Am about 1,000 words into my [ profile] tw_fallharvest fest fic. It's really kind of refreshing to do fest fics in other fandoms. I had lots of fun writing for the [ profile] got_exchange and [ profile] mcshep_match in past years. Am still hoping for a pinch hit for [ profile] hd_holidays. Have been thinking a lot about writing in Avengers, too. I have a lot of Tony/Loki feels \0/

* Oh, and I kinda went ahead and did this... TMP's Tumblr. I still have no idea what I'm going to do with it, but there it is.

* I have a shittonne of art recs queued. I need a few more hours in my day :P

How is everyone this evening?

It's a Jeep Thing - Derek/Stiles preslash [PG-13 // 2,600 words] by [ profile] riventhorn.

Stiles hasn't really rung any shippy bells for me, but I must admit that I have a real soft spot for the boy and his jeep. And this fic? Is brilliantly voiced in the jeep's POV.

There's just something irrefutably charming about 4,000 pounds of sport utility with all the feels for its owner. Perhaps, even displaying a tinge of jealousy over the sour wolf that sits in the passenger seat beside the one that pats her dash or kneeds her steering wheel.

This is such a wonderful feel-good fic. My face still hurts from smiling so much <33333

Still working on a multi-fandom art recs post and some TW season one thinky thoughts. But for now, a poll :)))
