Happy Friday, everyone! I’m [livejournal.com profile] schweinsty, and let's end the week with a bang (perhaps literally). Today's theme is action movies; prompts can be anything having to do with action movies/action—a quote from one, a title, action tropes, fusions with, or even just set in action movie fandoms.

Just a few rules:
No more than five prompts in a row.
No more than three prompts in the same fandom.
Use the character's full names and fandom's full name for ease adding to the Lonely Prompts spreadsheet.
No spoilers in prompts for a month after airing, or use the spoiler cut option found here.
If your fill contains spoilers, warn and leave plenty of space, or use the spoiler cut.
If there are possible triggers in your story, please warn for them in the subject line!

Prompts should be formatted as follows: [Use the character's full names and fandom's full name]
Fandom, Character +/ Character, Prompt

Some examples to get the ball rolling...
+Star Trek AOS, Jim Kirk(/Leonard McCoy), fusion with Speed
+Supernatural, Dean Winchester + the grenade launcher, “This is my boomstick”
+The Musketeers, Any Musketeer + Group of Thugs, Curb-Stomp Battle

We use AO3 to bookmark filled prompts. If you fill a prompt and post it to AO3 please add it to the Bite Sized Bits of Fic from 2017 collection. See further notes on this new option here.

Not feeling any of today’s prompts? Check out Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 1 (not very current), Lonely Prompts Spreadsheet 2, or the Calendar Archives, or for more recent prompts, you can use LJ's advanced search options to find prompts to request and/or fill.

While the Lonely Prompts Spreadsheets and LJ's advanced search options are available, bookmarking the links of prompts you like might work better for searching for in the future.

After about $500, my jeep now has a new alternator, a new blower for the AC, and a new waiting to be put on driver side front door, on top of the new spark plugs, wires, and air filter. Apparently putting on doors of this particular make/model is a real pain in the ass so I'm waiting until I absolutely have to. I already have someone willing to do it. I'm hoping it doesn't became super necessary anytime soon.

I'm working on an Alucard art piece that seemed so simple when I was sketching it out but which has turned into this really in depth piece. I'm really enjoying working on it; it's not for anything and I'm not really in any hurry to have it finished. So I can kind of meander and play around and see what works and what doesn't. it also helps that I'm working entirely with a blue palette and while blue isn't my favorite color, it's one of my favorite colors to work with (my fave color is orange! Yay complementary colors!). Anyway, ideally it will be finished by this Saturday but we'll see.

Cutting this but it's about John McCain's cancer diagnosis )

werepuppyblack: (We Will Rock You)


I meant to have this up last Wednesday but I have not been well. There's a bit of a bug going around and I just happened to catch it due to going from the very big heat of London during the day to being completely and utterly soaked when I walked out of the London Coliseum on Tuesday night. No, seriously, wasn't even out in the rain five minutes and my jacket had bent to the power of nature. Freaky.

(Bat Out of Hell: the Musical is ... interesting, as a side note. I'm planning on writing up a better thing for my blog to express my feelings clearer but a sum up? Hm... Music is great, staging is cool, Rock You brings the plot.)

See, now that I'm actually sitting down to write, I don't actually know what I want to say. London was great, and I managed to meet up with a few friends, which is always fantastic. My parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary and they had a nice time as well. I got reminded the other day that it was 4 weeks till my birthday and asked what I wanted. I ... have answered with something, but it remains to be seen if it is at all possible.

On the health side of things? I need to try to get my eating and sleeping back into better patterns. On the eating front, it's not that I'm not eating the right things, it's that... I'm not doing it in a regular enough matter for my metabolism to recognize it. At least, that's what my GP says. Sleeping is just a mess that I can't seem to fix as yet. I'm working on it though.

Fandom? While I'm excited that the new Doctor has been confirmed to be female, I have to admit my hype is stronger for the multi-Doctor Christmas Special. I'm a simple fan.

That's all I can think of right now. Checking in again later.

My poems "A Death of Hippolytos" and "The Other Lives," published last October in The Cascadia Subduction Zone 6.4, are now free to read online with the rest of their issue. The first was inspired by Jules Dassin's Phaedra (1962) and especially by this afterthought, the second was written for Rose Lemberg after discussing Ursula K. Le Guin's The Left Hand of Darkness (1969). [personal profile] gwynnega has poetry in the same issue.

I had heard absolutely nothing of Guillermo del Toro's The Shape of Water (2017) until this afternoon, but the trailer makes it look like something I should very definitely see in December. It looks like William Alland and Jack Arnold's Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) retold through Jane Yolen's "The Lady and the Merman," which has haunted me since elementary school when I first read Neptune Rising: Songs and Tales of the Undersea Folk (1982). It looks sea-deep.

Speaking of oceanic things for which I may existentially blame Caitlín R. Kiernan: Delphine Cencig, "Poulpe Fiction."

In fact, I have another doctor's appointment tomorrow.
sovay: (PJ Harvey: crow)
Second doctor's appointment in as many days, coming up. First, links.

1. [personal profile] spatch sent me this handy-dandy list: "Times Doctor Who Was Ruined Forever." The site is snarky and some of their tags are jerkass, but the article itself is gold. "21/03/1981 – The best Doctor ever is replaced by a vet. Doctor Who dies."

2. Following my belated discovery of Jack Buchanan, I am pleased to see that the HFA will be showing Ernst Lubitsch's Monte Carlo (1930) on Friday. I wonder if I have ever actually seen Jeanette MacDonald.

3. I had no idea one of the performers of "The Grass Is Always Greener" was Lauren Bacall (and I think I had forgotten the song came from a musical by Kander and Ebb, although listening to its brassy swing, I don't know who else it could have been). Standing Room Only on WERS used to play it all the time. I like how her voice softens on the repeated line That's wonderful, but her unimpressed What's so wonderful? could pass for Elaine Stritch. This makes me desperately sad that Bacall never recorded "The Ladies Who Lunch."

4. This is a gorgeous photoset, but I would love to see the on-set photos from the shoot. Like, the backstage stuff. People just standing around on snack breaks, being Klimt paintings.

5. This was true last weekend as well, but I was at Readercon and couldn't do anything about it: [personal profile] spatch swapped in for one of the hosts of the PMRP's Murders and Scandals: Poe and Doyle at the last minute, so I'll see him this weekend on one of the nights I'm not seeing Jack Buchanan.

The Guardian: Trump had undisclosed second meeting with Putin, White House confirms

New York Times: Trump and Putin Held a Second, Undisclosed, Private Conversation

Note: it was "private" as in "out of earshot of anyone except Putin's translator" and "not mentioned to the public". It was not private as in "it was held in view of most of the other G20 leaders OMFG ARE YOU KIDDING ME".

Just to make the whole thing even stupider (on Buttercup's part) and more of a blatant power play (on Putin's).

[tumblr.com profile] plaidadder breaks this shit down: A Million Encores: Putin And our Playable President

And spells out one point in particular:

Why do we know about this? Because some of the European G-20 leaders were so concerned about this that they called their global risk consultant to get his opinion on it. That’s what Ian Bremmer does: he assesses global political risk for people who want to use it to make investment decisions.
