I'm experimenting with the JavaScript permission setting in my browser after reading melannen's post, and OMG, YOU GUYS, unpaid LiveJournal gets so, so much nicer after I block JavaScript on the site!! It's no longer swimming in ads!!! In fact, I didn't see a single one when I took a quick look around, not on journals nor on posts nor above my inbox. Can you imagine?!

Edited because I made a cut where I wanted to make a hyperlink. Very nice.

And that's that. Who needs more recs while @summer-of-giles is running, anyway? ;)

If I add "@" in front of a word, Dreamwidth makes that word a DW user link: @ thenewbuzwuzz without the space is @thenewbuzwuzz. It works both in the HTML editor and the rich text editor [ETA 2: and in comments! Thanks, @angrboda], but you have to preview or post in order to see that it's working (it doesn't show in the rich text editor during editing).

Not that it does anything besides creating the username link to the other person, BUT STILL. I like it so much better than trying to memorize the html for tagging users. Now I can tag EVERYONE in a matter of SECONDS! I can tag that tree over there! @tree @clouds

ETA: ah, this is not preserved in LJ crossposts. LJ thinks the @ is just an @ symbol always.

ETA 3: and if you need to use an @ directly before a word without making a username link, you can escape the @ with a backslash! \ @ word with no spaces is \@word. Thanks for asking a great question, @deird1!

Thursdays Are for Reccing

...and Reddit is for genuinely heartwarming posts and conversations such as

I'm very thankful for having this show in my life [Buffy and Willow friendship appreciation post] by SpaceCapybara85 and

Buffy (specifically the character) appreciation post/she helped me as I grew up by BarelyFunctioning29.

The latest comments on the more popular post are starting to derail, but most of the conversation is still made of happiness. These stood out to me because someone on tumblr wished the fandom would, when interacting with other fandom members, focus on the fact that we all enjoy the same show. We're in a good wishverse now!

Stared at some surfaces yesterday

So I was at a party, and I thought I could be having more fun... so I whipped out my phone camera and wandered around for a long time taking photos of the venue. These are only a few of the pics I took. There might be another post later.

3 Subject Meme: rye bread

The second of 3 subjects that Cornerofmadness gave me. You can request 3 subjects from me in turn if you want.

What's your relationship with rye? :)

3 Subject Meme: opals

If you reply saying you'd like to play, I'll give you 3 subjects I don't think you know or care much about. Then you talk about those subjects in your journal. It's interesting to see who knows what about what.

Today, watch me buzwuzz-splain opals, courtesy of cornerofmadness. Cornerofmadness also gave me "rye bread" and "ghosts", but I'm splitting these up and working my way up to "ghosts" gradually (in order to delay the moment when I mention I'm not 100% sure ghosts *don't* exist, and then all my sensible friends disown me).

Today I learned

...that not only will LiveJournal and Dreamwidth let me date an entry so it predates my journal, they will also let me backdate it all the way to 1970 (so, 29 years before LiveJournal itself was created).

Some of the Fic I Enjoyed in May

There's not a lot I read in May apart from Seasonal Spuffy fic and Exquisite Cortados, but some of it was great!

(1) Not Buffyverse

To the Victor, The Spoil by Annakovsky (Hunger Games, Katniss/Haymitch, Explicit). 13,361w, complete.
The angst hurt so good. *g* Plus, there was awkward sex! Thanks to snickfic for reccing it so convincingly that I tried a ship I'd never ever considered before.

(2) Buffyverse, not Spuffy

Orbit by GraceNM (Fuffy with past Bangel and Angel&Faith, T). 2046w, complete.
Post-NFA, Buffy and Faith are working out what they mean to each other, what Angel meant to Faith, what Buffy meant to Angel, and how all of that coexists. I loved that none of the relationships were shown as worse or less important!
Note to Spuffy shippers: there's no bashing <3, but it might feel like there's an empty space where Spuffy should be. :D

(3) Spuffy


A New Dawn, A New Day by gwennie (Spuffy, NC-17). 5 chapters, complete.
Not available online, but I have a copy, thanks to flow.
Post-The Gift, Buffy is alive and has to have sex with Spike for Important Plot Reasons, multiple times! It's gloriously awkward and bad, and sad, and intimate, and eventually kind of good. Enjoyed every bit of it. <3

Spiegel im Spiegel by Fallowdoe (Spuffy, T). 51K words, complete. FFN link.
I haven't read the whole thing yet, but it's gorgeously written and poignant. I've heard Spike and Buffy will be apart for practically the whole fic and that the main Spuffiness is in how Spike has changed because he knew Buffy. He kind of carries onwards the best of what Buffy stands for, even while Buffy is unable to do it herself. I'm into it. It's all quite poetic.
