I really haven't been tormenting Amber enough lately, since I'm only peripherally involved in Generation Kill and anything vampire-related inspires annoyance that overpowers the hotness that is Alexander Skarsgard. This is an attempt to make up for it.

Backstory: I went to donate blood today. (Good news: I am no longer borderline anemic! This is a Relief for me.) After donating, I got some juice and pretzels (handed to me by a nice young man in fatigues; the blood drive was organized by the campus ROTC), and my choice of t-shirts: a boring old "I donated blood to the Red Cross"-type one, and this one. As you can tell, I picked this one.

Fannish stuff that is pleasing to me today
Let's just walk for a while (John/Rodney, PGish) by steammmpunk. Her drawings make my soul happy, so clean and crisp.

New comm! MOOSEBUTTHONEY (hahahaha, I said "moosebutt") follows the adventures of beekeeper!John and chef!Rodney, who must put up with Radek and his quail-centric fantasies. I think we all know by now that the team does well in ANY AU you care to plunk them into, but they are especially tasty here.

bunches of SPN links )

in other news: I'm kind of wired right now, as you may be able to tell. I really need to settle down. Between fandom and kind-of cheerful prospects in RL, though, it's hard.

.Nevermind (John/Rodney PG) ~1,500 + art
I was lucky enough to write for the very awesome and talented [ profile] newkidfan for this month's Reversed challenge at [ profile] artword, and believe me when I tell you her art will blow you away. And thank you thank you to [ profile] dogeared for making sure the writing is not entirely nonsensical *smooch* (And for those of you who are interested in [ profile] artword but didn't have a chance/weren't able to participate last month, the new challenge starts soon! Look for it!)

Because the piece is very image-heavy, the link takes you to a preload page ♥

The last time he lost someone behind enemy lines, John had a single helicopter to get him back. This time he has a warship.

.eta: For a few billion reasons (pollen, allergies to said pollen, having to work in the garden anyway otherwise we will be growing prize weeds), I'm having a terrible, "wow do I feel like shit in more ways than one" morning. And I haven't read it yet because I want to wait for the Zyrtec to work (oh please dear god work), but I know THIS is going to be awesome and will help me feel better. It is [ profile] beeej's Bar Harbour AU, and I have been praying for [ profile] wojelah or someone to write it because OMG OMG OMG IT MAKES ME JOYFUL.

According to roommate, there was an earthquake last night--not the sort that makes bridges collapse or opens up huge gaping holes in the earth, just a wee gentle rumbling--but I slept right through it. I think that might have been because I had much more important things on my mind, i.e. an alarming dream where one of my old students emailed me and a bunch of professors saying he found this stuff and it looks kind of cool. It was some of my fanfic.

But. It was only fic in which characters were going or had gone to the dentist.

Now, I'm far from the most evil writer out there when it comes to character abuse, but I have been known to, on occasion, have them shot and left out in the desert, kidnapped and dumped in an alley, and infect their brains with nanites. However, I have never ever been so depraved as to make them visit the dentist, and I never will be.

Just for the record. (Also, he was really smirky about it, "oooh, see what I found, it looks neat ;-)" the little so-and-so.)

Anyway, onto normal things. Remember the tiny "Unidentified" cover? The one where you can't see anything? Yes. The madly-skilled [ profile] girlnamedpixley has run it through her amazing and mystical image-enlarging program and produced a version where you can actually see stuff. The resolution isn't perfect, but believe me, it's light-years better than what I could persuade out of Photoshop and, as I said, you can see stuff, so if you would like to get a closer look at Rodney's (Team-only because I was obsessed) board: come hither )

And lastly: [ profile] sheafrotherdon is having her David Hewlett Festival of Awesome Fortyishness Picspam here! Go! See! Contribute to Hewlettosity!

Yes yes yes, I'm slow and lame. But [ profile] sheafrotherdon presented me with this which is part of this and there went my productivity for the evening.

Seriously, how is he so beautiful? Once I have more icons to make it worthwhile, I'll repost these at [ profile] discolore, but in the meantime, feel free to take whatever you'd like. Commenting is lovely, because... well, it's Joe. And he's pretty. And I like to talk about how pretty he is.

(Also, for those of you who have read Phi, this is model!John. Yes.)

In other news: Did I just not say there went my productivity?? On the other hand, I now have an idea for my second prompt for [ profile] paintedspires \o/

Conference is done! It went very well, made useful contacts, possibly found an outside reader for my dissertation, and had really really good food. The best part, though? I'm home now and I have the next three weeks off. There's still work to be done on the assistantship front, but proposal stuff will wait until after break. Until after I go visit my parents for break \o/

The other really really good part about seeing the parents for break is that it means I'll be able to watch the SGA S4 finale on Friday night, instead of doing what I usually do and staying up until ridiculous hours to download it.

In celebration, I give you a very small picspam for [ profile] sheafrotherdon's festival of JFlan's adorkable face, and you can find it here. Sexy chair tiem faces!!! Smiles! Expressions of extreme dorkiness!

John smiles winsomely at you and hopes you will go see him :>

Also in celebration, I may write something tomorrow, once I get done assimilating the giddying thought that I do not have to think about things for three weeks.
