FANDOM: Chronicles of Narnia (The Silver Chair)
FIC LINK: Revisionary History
AUTHOR LINK: [ profile] cofax
RATING/WARNING(S): G, no warnings
MAIN CHARACTERS: Jill Pole, Eustace Scrubb, Puddleglum

FIC SUMMARY: Pole and Scrubb accomplished rather more during their quest for the lost prince than anyone ever truly understood

RECCER'S NOTES: One of the things I love most about Narnia stories is when the author gets into worldbuilding. This story tells a tale of Jill, Eustace and Puddleglum from a couple of very different perspectives, and we get to see Jill finding her feet in an unfamiliar world on one hand, and some historical versions of Rilian's disenchantement on the other.

I take a lot of photographs while Glen is driving.
I usually wind down the window and take them.
A lot of these were taken on the way to, or back from
medical appointments.
Often when I just need to take my mind off things.

Lord Street. Facing Whiteman Park.

maybe I can take your mind off some things too )

Why this piece is awesome: It's the Protector! Enlarge the image to the max and it's even better with the ship hurtling towards us, asteroid debris behind and the vastness of space all around. The radiant lines and distorted ellipsoid planet below add to the feeling of "warp" speed. I love the way fans spend ages digitally modeling spaceships so as to play with putting them in cool settings.

Only about ten photos in this batch,
including a stray photo from my Mum's garden.
Mostly Lechenaultia and Dampiera,
because they're so pretty,
and they cooperate with flowering very nicely.

Lechenaultia formosa.

A few more under the cut. )

Some of these photos will feature meat, for those who can't stomach seeing it.
They'll all be under a cut though.
And it's all cooked meat.
I haven't showered yet.
Having a very slow start to my day today.

A Multimedia Gift Exchange for All Final Fantasy Fandoms

Rules | FAQ | Schedule

As much as we may wish for a completely smooth and hassle-free exchange for all, sometimes life just happens! And for just such occasions, there's another really important way to help make the exchange a success: pinch hitting!

Pinch Hitting for DOINK! 2014

To get ready to pinch hit, simply join the DOINK! pinch hitters mailing list. The subscriber list is protected and you can leave/join as you wish.

You don't need to be a DOINK! participant — regular or beta volunteer — to be a pinch hitter, but you do need an AO3 account (just send us an e-mail and ask for an invite, or join the queue).

Mods will send pinch-hit requests to the list, and anyone is free to claim them on a first-come, first served basis — just reply to claim! Confirmation will be sent to the volunteer who was the quickest draw, and an alert will be sent to the list itself letting everyone know the hit has been claimed. Pinch hits often go fast, so be on your toes!

Accepting a pinch hit is a commitment: it means you agree to our basic guideline policy for fanwork, which you can find on our Walkthrough. You will also be assigned an upload deadline specific to you.

Pinch hits can come through at any point in the exchange — but we expect to see the most traffic around April 30 (the No-Penalty Default Deadline) and May 19 (the official Uploading Deadline). In the case of the latter, especially, our need is great. If you really want to pinch hit, those are good times to be by your Inbox!

We absolutely appreciate all the awesome folks who help us out with pinch hitting, especially at the end of the round when time is tight. Thanks to everyone already signed up and to any future volunteers! ♥

Stopping 'Stop Tony Meow': how web plug-in caught the Department of Prime Minister's attention

Staff at the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet have used up more than 130 pages of correspondence talking about a web plug-in that replaces pictures of Tony Abbott with ‘‘cute kittens’’.

But after charging the program’s creator $700 for access to those pages, what they actually said is a mystery, for now.

Developers Dan Nolan and Ben Taylor made the "Stop Tony Meow" browser extension in January. Downloaded more than 50,000 times, it automatically swaps any picture of Mr Abbott encountered online with pictures of cats.

Curious as to what the Prime Minister and his staff thought of the extension, Mr Nolan submitted a Freedom of Information request to the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet for any correspondence that mentioned the words "Stop Tony Meow".

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have five volunteer reccers who signed up for May with these fandoms:

* Captain America ([personal profile] sholio)
* Doctor Who ([personal profile] turlough)
* Firefly ([personal profile] mific)
* Star Trek: Reboot ([personal profile] unbidden_truth)
* Welcome to Night Vale ([personal profile] sailorptah)

So we already have a few recs too look forward to in May, but it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only one reccer has volunteered for June, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for May, June or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of April. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Movement", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

In random news,
I have over 1,100,000 words up on AO3 now.
My original fiction is the most popular fiction in the original fiction (by kudos and comments - not that this is a barometer of quality).
But it's nice to see it trending in the top,
above 6,000 other works.
Now if only I can translate that to a career.
(I shall be opening a Patreon account soon).

I mean I really am,
I take more cloud and sky photos
than I do anything else really.
So much that I now need my own folder for it.
But can you blame me?
Perth shows off.

I actually was only in London for a night,
and I was there to visit a friend.
And I was also tremendously ill.
So I wasn't able to do any of the tours or anything,
but still, I managed to see some things. :)

Since, as I mentioned to [personal profile] vieralynn in comments, I can't imagine I can avoid what's in the trailer forever, and I'd rather learn it by watching now than via random, not-as-vague-as-they-think-they-are comments in random Tumblr posts. :)

Not spoilers really, if you've been paying any attention to advance news at all. )

October? October. Good deal.

Five things make a post

1. My Tumblr dash is over half blocked posts. Must be new DA:I content! From the things that have slipped through (gaaah people why must things slip through), it sounds like a new trailer, which I would actually be interested in watching (just not dissecting in intense detail), so I'll have to check it out when I'm on a better Internet connection.

2. Speaking of Dragon Age, I'm still in need of a beta read for my Dragon Age Big Bang story. Any takers? At this point, given that it's due in less than a week, I'd be happy just for a quick read-through to look for egregious problems. Let me know.

3. I saw Winter Soldier again last week. It definitely holds up. I need to see it again. I posted my thoughts to Tumblr. Note, the entry also contains a significant spoiler for the two post CA:TWS Agents of SHIELD episodes. (Although it's the kind of spoiler that might actually lure some people into watching.)

4. We have another guest conductor this quarter. In some ways, he's as brilliant and as difficult as the guy we had in the Fall, but he has a way of communicating that makes him much easier to work with. The repertoire (church music by Holst and Vaughan Williams) is quite challenging -- so challenging that he actually pulled one work and substituted a much simpler one. It's a little disappointing to put three weeks of work into a piece and then not perform it, but it was absolutely the right choice, because now we can concentrate on making the rest of the concert amazing rather than struggling just to put it all together.

5. DOINK! I have my assignments and know which one I want to do. Now I just have to decide how I want to approach it. And see if I can manage to avoid all the shiny Steve Rogers distractions that the movie has put into my head.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a lovely portrait of Shin. I love how alive the sea looks, the breaking waves and flying spray and the many subtle shades of blue. And Shin looks so happy and completely confident in his element.
