This journal is now friends only (apart from the anon posts), since I have plenty of public spaces out there on the internet, and let's face it: the world is full of crazies ;) Oh, I don't mean you of course; you don't seem the type at all. If you want to add me, just drop me a comment here and I'll add back when I see all the cool stuff we have in common.  I won't add back if you don't say hi, just to give you a heads up.

If you're looking for my fanfiction, can I please direct you to [livejournal.com profile] fictorium?

You want to see me orchestrate this right now? You want to see me mobilize these people? These people who would walk into fire if you told them to. These people who showed up to lead. These people who showed up to fight. [points at Charlie] That guy gets death threats because he’s black and he dates your daughter.

He was warned: “Do not show up to this place. You’re life will be in danger.” He said, “To hell with that, I’m going anyway.”

You said, “No.”

Prudent, or not prudent, this 21 year old for 600 dollars a week says, “I’m going where I want to because a man stands up.”  

Everyone’s waiting for you. I don’t know how much longer.

It's December 16th. When you see this, quote Leo McGarry.

John Spencer, RIP

Give to Receive Ficathon!

Come and play - think of it as a fic amnesty! Post something--anything!--you've written and then you get to prompt people to write the fic you're craving. You can post a story in reply to the prompts already written OR just post a brand new comment with a drabble, an excerpt, a story you haven't found a place for yet. Maybe you just wanted a nudge out of your blocked state, or maybe you just want a quick and dirty chance for some feedback. Either way? Get typing :)

Please, please pimp this. I think it could be a lot of fun!

The Seven Deadly Sins:

Lust, Avarice, Gluttony, Envy, Pride, Sloth, Wrath

A comment ficathon with a very simple theme - your prompt must relate somehow to one of the 7 Cardinal Sins.  Perhaps it's that character A can't control their attraction to character B?  Or does C have something that D desperately covets?  Does pride come before a fall?  And is there such a thing as too much of a good (or bad) thing?  Prompt away in the comments, and others should come along to write a story for you.

Let's play a game.

Say that, like the lesser Studio 60, The West Wing only got 22 episodes.  From all 7 seasons, which 22 would you pick to be the ones that survive?  You can provide reasons if you have the time.  (This has been a draft for ages, finally have the internet to publish!)

Here's my list of the 22 that make the cut:

01. Institutional Memory (I want us to talk because I like the sound of your voice // You need a frying pan to the side of your head)
02. Drought Conditions (Can this be one of those nights where we get sloshed and forget we work together?)
03. The Supremes (I love her. I love her mind. I love her shoes.)
04. Somebody's Going To Emergency, Somebody's Going To Jail (what Lincoln called the last full measure of devotion)
05. 18th and Potomac (Aspirin, my brother)
06. Night Five (I don't remember having to explain to Italians that our problem wasn't with them, but with Mussolini!)
07. California 47th (Uh-uh ladies, I saw him first)
08. The Women of Qumar (They're beating the women, Nancy)
09. The State Dinner (and an ego the size of Montana)
10. Mandatory Minimums (Making decisions is my birthright)
11. Take Out The Trash Day (by God, we are going to protect Julia Child.)
12. Debate Camp (Team Toby)
13. Privateers (It's real.)
14. Two Cathedrals (then God, Jed, I don't even wanna know you).
15. And It's Surely To Their Credit (when I write something, I sign my name)
16. 17 People (I would bet all the money in my pockets // I wouldn't stop for red lights)
17. The Leadership Breakfast (with the spicy bouquet that suggests a fine Merlot)
18. Dead Irish Writers (they were all American when I left!)
19. The War At Home (do you have any idea how good a doctor I am? And I can't tell you why.)
20. Ellie (the only thing you ever had to do // how can it be Thursday the whole time?)
21. Gone Quiet (a copy of the Constitutional Order of Succession)
22. Commencement (you're just sad).

That was surprisingly difficult.  Thank God I just made this game up and don't need to trim it down any more!

damelola: ([house] GOING TO HELL YES.)
For those of you who will continue to watch House next season:


This is not intended as an attack, I swear.  You know I don't pick fights with my friends (random trolls and evil people on the other hand...).  But how are you justifying it to yourselves?  Is it just a case of 'I've started so I have to finish'?  I mean, I know some of y'all would watch snuff for to Hugh Laurie if you had to, and I can't claim I'm any different when it comes to my women.

But I'm genuinely interested to hear what the defence is to the blatant misogyny (and/or casual racism), sharp decline in writing and all-round character assassination (including, most importantly, that of House himself)?  What is it that makes you say that's not how it is or it doesn't matter because.  Like I say, not picking a fight but I feel like I've only seen one side of this so far and I really don't know how the people not speaking up about this are rationalising the showrunners' decisions.

I'm putting this public and enabling anon so you don't have to feel awkward about it all.  Look forward to hearing any and all sides of the arguments outside of the general comm hysteria.
