Author's Note: The Many-Worlds Interpretation is one of my pet quantum theories: "Everett's Many-Worlds interpretation has implications beyond the quantum level. If an action has more than one possible outcome, then -- if Everett's theory is correct -- the universe splits when that action is taken. This holds true even when a person chooses not to take an action." [x]

Summary: There’s only so much about Amelia Pond that can be explained by a tear in time and space.

I remember it twice, different ways.
Amy Pond, “The Wedding of River Song”

I wish I could tell you that you'll be loved. That you'll be safe and cared for and protected. But this isn't the time for lies.
Amy Pond, “A Good Man Goes to War”

Amelia Pond hasn't lived here in a long time.
Amy Pond, “The Eleventh Hour”

How can I remember them if they never existed?
Amy Pond, “The Big Bang”

It's you. It's all about you. Everything. It's about you.
The Doctor, “Flesh and Stone”

The Many-Worlds of Amelia Pond

Amy Pond’s life never made sense. )

As of two minutes ago, this is what I have of the Torchwood/Doctor Who fic that rose out of nowhere and ate my brain:

It's basically CoE fix-it fic, because I think everyone in the fandom is required to write at least one of those. I'm about halfway through the fifth chapter, with only one more and an epilogue to go. 

I have someone who takes a look at it as I finish chapters, but I want other eyes on it as well. I also very dearly need a Brit-picker to correct my slang and tweak my spelling. If you'd like to volunteer, drop me a line or message me. :3
snowdarkred: (text: comic book: well shit)
i know i don't post here very often anymore; i'm trying to work on that by writing longer fic. which i'm working on. /mysterious

anyway, this is just a quick note about the whole mess with delicious and everyone freaking out, etc.

i moved all my bookmarks to pinboard, and i've got everything up and running over there. feel free to network with me if you already have an account.

 I know I haven’t posted my writing for a while, but this WSJ article and the fabulous backlash has had me reaching for my keyboard, so. I'm going to subject you to my poetry.

OKAY. So I know I don't post my friends' & family's shenanigans all that often, because we're a very uneven bunch and one day we'll all be fine with each other and the next day we'll each be out for blood, and to be honest, it's kind of stressful figuring out which day is going to be which.



So, there's this chick I knew in high school.
PREQUEL OF cut to save your flists )

So anyway, we got into a week-long argument about it, because she wouldn't back off and I can't just let stupid lie.

So, ahem, to get more back on track, I'm facebook friends with R, and I didn't even really remember that because I haven't spoken to her in, literally, two years. But I posted a comment bitching about how people keep referring to Chris Colfer/Kurt Hummel as a soprano when he's actually a countertenor.

About halfway through this, I went downstairs to ask my stepdad, since he's a classically trained singer. (He went to a fancy private Catholic school, and part of his scholarship was for music.)

RETURN OF THE cut to save your flists )

...But then I didn't, because I am GOOD PERSON. THE END.

So yeah. I'd almost feel sorry for R, because I get that she has issues and whatever, I really do, because you don't get to be her level of crazy without them (I've known her since my freshman year of high school, okay, I took classes with her. I know she's batshit) but then I remember how she freaked out at my friends party because she didn't want to sleep in the same room (and especially on the same mattress) with a two bisexual chicks and two lesbians. :/ :/ :/ :/ And how she was worried that we would ~convert her little sister, who was there too.

:/ :/ :/

Actually, you know what? Why am I still friends with her on facebook? *goes off to defriend her*

1. Wow. I was kind of startled today when I realized how much I hated both my boss and my manager. One's racist; the other is sexist. *bangs head against the wall*

2. The epic multifandom prompt meme is still on going! Admittedly, I got sidetracked by family stuff - hey, consider what season it is - but I'm starting to make a dent on fills...which is why I want you to give me more! And not just The Losers stuff, either, although keep those coming! I'm talking about Inception and Glee and Star Trek XI and Brick and Supernatural and so on. :D

3. I bought some more hair dye. By this time tomorrow, I will once again be blonde. \o/

4. I have one more thing that I want to buy myself before I officially close my free-for-all-December budget. After the New Year's Eve, it's back to the old super strict no spending policy.

5. IT SNOWED IN GEORGIA, Y'ALL. IT SNOWED. ON CHRISTMAS DAY. And it was the first time in 127 YEARS that the county I live in has had snow on Christmas day. It was really super pretty, which brings me to my last Bullet Point of Life:

6. My dog. So, I know that a few of you were around way back when, when I posted those pics of my cute little puppy? The one that I could pick up and cuddle with because he was so small? Yeah. A year later, he's not so tiny any more:

White Dog, White Snow by ~snowdarkred on deviantART


ETA: Context for his size is something like this: I'm five foot two. His hip and my hip are almost even. When he raises his head, it's in line with my waist. He weighs about a 120 pounds and he's not. Done. Yet. D: He's still got another year or so of filling out to do. THAT'S how big my dog is. :3
snowdarkred: (stxi: karl: relevant to my interests)
Leave me a prompt (for a fandom/show/book/whatever that I am actually familiar with) and I'll write a drabble! And if anyone wants to get in on the action too, well, the more the merrier! 

Any pairing or non-pairing is fine; just be sensible about what I could write. We all know I'm wonderful, but I'm not that wonderful.  ;)

I think...I think that sometimes I forget how stupid people are.

It's just: Between my friends, who are pretty much 'whatever makes you happy' about 97% of things, and all the wonderful people on LJ, I just I don't think about how fucking moronic and ignorant the average person is.

I hate people. I just, I do. They're fucking crazy and stupid and blind.

Okay, so we did a little bit on gender roles and gender identity and so on, and my teacher's painful hetronormative views aside - she's not being directly hateful, just oblivious - we watched a clip from the Today Show, about the boy who dressed up as Daphne for Halloween.

And during discussion, someone said, I shit you not, "It'd be okay for a boy to dress in girly stuff at home, but I wouldn't allow them to go out looking like that."

There was some other stuff too, like how boys wanting to dress as girls would 'grow out of it' and so on, and I desperately wanted to shout about how it didn't fucking matter whether it was a brief period or a permenent desire or what the fuck ever. If the kid wants to wear a fucking dress, s/he can wear a fucking dress.

I'm just so used to fandom being generally awesome about stuff like this. I mean, yeah, people put their foot in it, but here, on LJ and FF and DA and tumblr and all of our other ways to connect and talk and learn from each other, it's so much easier.

Y'all are wonderful, wonderful people, and I love you all. Don't ever leave me. ;_;

It does make me wonder, though, something that I think about from time to time: What would my life be like if I'd never found fandom? I got into fandom fairly young - I was about eleven/twelve-ish - and I just, y'know, grew up with it. Fandom is how I finally figured out why I have never in my life wanted to have sexual contact with anyone. I just kept waiting and waiting and waiting for that whole 'right person' bullshit, and you know what? That person is most likely not going to appear in my life because they don't exist. I mean, if I ever meet someone and all I can think is 'Jesus Christ, I want to bang them so hard' than fine. Okay. I'm cool with that. But at the moment, I don't think it's ever going to happen.

Without fandom, I can't think of a way that I would discover anything real about asexuality. I mean, there are two - two - identified asexuals on television, and one of them is Sheldon, for God's sake. There would be no way for me to find someone in the media and go, Huh, well that fits. And I don't even want to know what my psych class would say if I were to stand up and say, Hey, I'm asexual. I mean, it'd probably be something like 'Oh, you're broken; you'll get over it' or something. D:

I... came out? as an asexual in fandom and the reaction was 'Meh. Awesome for you. Now when are you going to finish that fucking story you owe us!' It's awesome.

So yeah. I  love you guys. And I am so fucking glad I found fandom because you make my life so much better. Thank the gods people like you exist.

So, I finally picked a plot/idea for my Inception bigbang (OMG I AM SO LAME & LATE, WTF) and I want the title to be in French.

The problem is that I don't speak French.

So, my lovelies, if one of y'all would be so kind as to fess up to some French tongue (er, heh, ignore me) and translate this for me:

it's just a dream, darling, except for all the ways it isn't

PLEASE? I would love you forever and ever and write you fic? (Except that, well, it'd have to wait, because I am determined to churn out at least 10K by the middle of November, and boy, this is going to get interesting, isn't it?)

ETA: According to Google translate, "c'est juste un rêve, mon chéri, à l'exception de toutes les façons, il n'est pas" translates to "it's just a dream, my darling, except in every way, it is not" which is kinda close? IDK, I need help!!!!!
snowdarkred: (losers: cougar&jensen: side by side)
I created a tumblr account. For Cougar and Jensen. Because I'm awesome like that.
Check it out! :D

The character roles of Special Agent "JJ" Jereau is being cut entirely, and the role of Emily Prentiss is being significantly reduced to the point of not even appearing in every episode.

Criminal Minds is famous for its balanced cast, but the show is making cuts to the female characters only - not, they assure us, for financial reasons, but for 'creative' ones. This is disheartening and disappointing. I really love this series, but I will not be able to support them if they do this. None of the male actors took pay cuts or role cuts, even though I'm sure they would be glad to if it meant keeping their coworkers. The cast seems close; they can't be happy about this. I am not happy about this.

Criminal Minds Trims Cast  Article about the cut.
Keep AJ Cook & Paget Brewster on Criminal Minds! Petition  A petition to keep AJ and Paget on the show as is.
CBS feedback form A way to send hatemail feedback to CBS about this change.

This is what I wrote to CBS:

Subject: Criminal Minds

You are cutting the role of JJ and limiting the role of Prentiss in your hit show Criminal Minds. If this happens, I will gladly stop watching. I'm a woman, and watching a show that does not marginalize women in the work place, and that shows them as having the same feelings and strengths and weakness as men - a show that does not pat them on the head and tell them to go home - is what kept bring me back again and again. It's what makes me buy merchandise and support advertisers. But if this new move goes forward - if you decide to 'take a new creative direction' by cutting the roles of two-thirds of your female cast - I will just as gladly take my money elsewhere.

The may not seem like much to you, but there are a huge number of fans just as angry as I am over this move. Your show has a winning formula, one that brings fans together and gets them to support you. I don't think you realize how much of your audience is female - and that that fact does mean that they want to see their role-models and inspirations disappear in favor of a male cast.

This is disappointing personally, as a woman, and as  fan. You are making an unnecessary change to something that works. You have millions of fans who tune in everyday to watch your show. I can guarantee that if you go through with this, you will have at least one less.

Please, if you're a fan of Criminal Minds and don't want to see two strong, independent female characters go, please write them and express this. Maybe we can save this situation, or at least cause enough of a fuss that no one will ever want to do it again.
