This goes to Ao3, which at last count had 5700+ bookmarks in 50+ different fandoms. You can filter by bookmarker's tag 'have read' for fics I liked enough to save - I can't vouch for the quality of anything in the 'to read' section. Have fun!

This goes to my Pinboard account, which I will probably have until the heat death of the universe, and is mostly (MOSTLY) non-Ao3 fic.

This goes ding when there's stuff. Also, it can boil an egg at fifty paces.
I know we all have a deep and abiding love for Google, okay? As we should. But if there was a lazy-little-bitch way to help save the environment (and your laptop battery), wouldja?

See Blackle.

See Blackle Search.

Search, Blackle, Search!

So basically, Blackle is a Google-powered search engine with a black background. Because sites with black backgrounds take less energy to display, if everyone who uses Google now used Blackle instead, it would save 8.3 MWh/day, globally. Just to put that in perspective for everybody, 8.3 MWh is enough energy to power 830 homes for a year.

Yes, really. A. YEAR.

Keep in mind that Blackle is not Google: it is Google-powered. There is no Blackle Maps, Blackle Image Search, Blackle Docs, or B-Mail. Sadly. It also doesn't do that predictive search thing, but I find that incredibly annoying and frankly I'm glad to have a search engine without it.

Come to Blackle with me, flist? PLEEEASE?
So apparently I won an award for Best Short Romance for Thistles over at the House/Cameron Fanfic Awards, which kind of astonishes me because it was my first-ever House fic. Not to go all Oscar-speech on you guys, but I was thrilled just to be nominated, I certainly never expected to didn't expect it, in fact, that I didn't know because I never checked back until now. So thank you, [ profile] athousandsmiles, for nominating me, and thank you to everyone who voted, I love you all. *kisses* For anyone who was wondering, Awful Nice, which was up for a Cammie in the Fluff category, lost out to [ profile] jesmel's Day Off, but she happens to be one of my very favorite House/Cameron writers and definitely deserved it.

Once again, credit for the stunning banner goes to [ profile] vicodin_martini.
I have been nominated for two awards over at [ profile] hc_fanficawards! 'Best Fluff' for Awful Nice, and 'Best Short Romance' for Thistles. Thank you [ profile] athousandsmiles!

OK, so probably EVERYONE has heard this already. But. I DON'T CARE. LISTEN TO IT AGAIN. It's like if you took the Monkees and the early Beatles and threw them in a blender and added a dash of blues. THIS IS SO QUINTESSENTIALLY 60s AND I ♥ IT FOR EVER AND EVER.

This way, flist! Shiny things, shiny things! )
I did a ficmix for her awesome Rockstar!AU, Beautiful Disaster, both because I love the fic, and I love that she chose lyrics from existing songs rather than making up her own. Posted with her kind permission. I have the entire thing in a .rar file, so you will need WinRAR or a similar program. If the file expires or whatever, just comment and I will upload it again. These are not songs from the story; she has a soundtrack for that. These are songs I picked out to listen to while reading the fic, in the mood of the story; wailing guitars, growling vocals; rock songs. My reasons for including each song (the italic text) contain spoilers for the story.

For anyone who has not read Beautiful Disaster, including my House, Korman, and FBR bandom friends; Go! READ! It's an AU, so you don't need to know anything about these people other than what they look like.

This way to the music! )
Feel free to, like, steal it or whatever, should you want it, as long as you blame credit me. I don't know who the boys are, other than pretty.
Let's play 20 Questions! )

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 56.
Go to the third paragraph.
Find the fifth sentence.

Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

Don't dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

"We have had no choice but to release the skeletal remains for burial, since it appears no trial will ever be held."

Dead Men Do Tell Tales, William R. Maples Ph.D. and Michael Browning.

This was at the top of the teetering stack on my night table; my idea of light bedtime reading is a little forensic anthropology, since if I start a fiction book I'll be up reading it all night.

RL updatey stuff, cut for the sake of your flist... )
