fic prompts :D

In an attempt to break through writer's block and midterms brain, I thought I'd try taking holiday-themed fic prompts. Any holiday that appears in the next few months is fair game, as is any prompt (although I do like the nice balance between vague and way too detailed).

Any fandom I've written in before is fair game (list can be found here: http://archiveofourown.org/users/puchuupoet/pseuds/puchuupoet), although I'm behind on Supernatural (pre-S7 only, por favor).

Thank you! ♥

You'd think for a college campus, their internet would be stable.

They're requiring a login/password now (for the dorms), with no information provided on where we find those. And the help line the site keeps directing me to hasn't been updated for about two years.

Soo, if it seems like I've disappeared moreso than normal, that's why. Also, homework and such.

I just realized how I can make friends in my new town

I'll post an ad on the campus bulletin board saying that I'm a woman new to the area and that I'd love to find someone to hang out with, show me the area, and introduce me to BSG and Buffy/Angel.

FOOLPROOF.

One last push for the awesome pet store ♥

There's 2.5 hours left in the competition, and they're 34 votes away. If you haven't voted yet, it only takes a couple minutes, and then I'll stop posting about it :p

And if you want, go vote, and then come back and leave a prompt for a ficlet. I've been blah with writer's block for awhile, but I will beat it back and conquer it if it means helping this awesome family out. And if you know of anyone else who may want to participate, feel free to send them this way.

If you click on this link:
Mission: Small Business, then search for: "Trop-Aquarium Pet Shop" (and vote!)

Thank you all so much ♥

Help the awesome animal folk!

I'm not one for signal boosting, but Chase Bank is doing the Mission: Small Business competition this month and an amazing local pet shop near me is in the running. They didn't find out about the competition until it was half way over, so I've been trying to do what I can to help them out. They just need another 124 votes to move on to the next round (and you can vote for as many small businesses as you want).

They are an awesome little mom and pop store, who breed their own reptiles (as well as do some rescue), prefer education to sales (as far as making sure the animals end up in the right situations), and have always been incredibly helpful and welcoming to me. (And in case you're anti- or wary of pet stores, this is a family who have been able to turn their love/hobby into a business, rather than those people who are in it for the money).

If you click on this link:
Mission: Small Business, then search for: "Trop-Aquarium Pet Shop" (and vote!)

(I want to be more eloquent and go into better, deeper reasons they should be supported, but I've gotten six hours of sleep in the past 32 hours, so I'm starting to crash and burn. If you have any questions, feel free to ask).

Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox News confirms this:

My one full day off from everything (work, school, etc), and I have a full page and a half of stuff I'd like to get done. If anyone happens to be around on gchat*, I'll be there (back and forth).

what is this self-control you speak of?

Someone tell me that I shouldn't take a mental health break and go on a mini road trip to pick up a really nice (affordable) snake rack that half my guys will need in a couple of months?

Cause it's really, really tempting.

E-reader/tablet recs?

It looks like I'm getting an e-reader for my birthday (yay!), which means I need to figure out which one I'd like. Because my phone's a basic model (I can talk, text, and watch it literally fall apart), I'm also leaning towards a tablet (for email, GPS, light web stuff, distracting games. Everything a smartphone would generally do).

Can anyone give me recs/personal experience/etc? I was originally leaning towards either Nook or Kindle, but then someone mentioned the Samsung Galaxy (which I'm initially ehh about, since my phone's a Samsung). I also have a general aversion to Apple products, for reasons that are still not completely clear to me.

Thank you! ♥

omg sleeeeeep ♥♥

How is it May first already? This does mean four more weeks until finals (both yay and nay, but then finally break time).

I keep starting entries and then never finishing them, usually because my brain goes "omg I know the perfect gif for this/wait, I have to find the fic chunk I keep meaning to post/oh hey cookies/etc." and it never goes anywhere past the untitled notepad doc.

Related, I've been spending some time over at Unfuck Your Habitat, and slowly integrating bits into my life. One of which is not aiming for perfection, but rather being satisfied accomplishing tasks in smaller steps (avoiding the alternatives of just not starting it or working at it forever).

So hopefully this month I'll actually post more, and get back into the swing of the internet. And then maybe after finals are over, I'll finally be able to watch season seven of Supernatural lol (yay for still being mostly spoiler-free though)

(I've missed you fandom ♥)

House Passes CISPA: Make Sure It Dies In Senate

CISPA would give the government and corporations vast new powers to track and share data about Americans’ Internet use.

But our hundreds of thousands of emails and tens of thousands of phone calls have had a real impact:

Amendments were adopted that made CISPA (marginally) better.

Earlier this month CISPA was supposed to sail through, but we helped foment opposition, and the vote was far closer than anybody could have imagined even a couple of weeks ago.

Most Democrats held firm in opposition, and more than two dozen libertarian-leaning Republicans defied their leadership and voted no.

Most importantly, President Obama has threatened to veto CISPA.

***Additionally, CISPA would destabilize the internet inviting cyber attacks and increasing the amount of identity theft.***

The Senate will consider cyber security legislation in the coming weeks. Let’s turn up the heat right away: Tell the Senate to reject CISPA and any and all legislation that doesn’t respect privacy and civil liberties.
Add your name at right to tell the Senate to reject cyber security legislation that doesn’t respect privacy.

Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

I just signed the following petition addressed to: Arizona Sentate, Arizona State Legislature, Debbie Lesko.

----------------
Stop the Arizona birth control Bill

If this bill passes the senate then women of Arizona would be forced to provide documentation that birth control is for medical purposes only. The "company" would not be required to cover birth control if it was for prevention of conception. Additionally this bill would give companies the right to fire women if they discovered that she was using a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy

Cluegirl note: Please don't roll your eyes and click past because you're tired of this nonsense. We're all tired of this nonsense. We're exhausted with the Tiny White Men That Other White Men Seem To Insist Need To Live In Our Ladyparts, and we're tired of being treated like cattle and chattel just because we're capable of conceiving life, but WE CANNOT IGNORE SHIT LIKE THIS! We must speak up, in our thousands, and we must speak up EVERY DAMN TIME! We must roar and shake the bars because every time even one of these appalling little incremental atrocities passes without uproar, then the Tiny White Men use it as a platform from which to to launch another, only slightly more atrocious attack.

Don't get tired, get mad. Talk about it. Yell about it. SCREAM about it. Deny nay-sayers sex over it. Do. Not. Be. Worn. Down. Because once the chains go on, it takes a lot of blood to get them off again.

This signal needs to be louder than all the 'stop internet limitations' signals. This Conservative Agenda includes the enslavement of better than half the human race. It really, really is more important.

Act like it.

Common Sense Disclaimer: If you are not me, then these opinions, relative to the experience of being me, are not yours. Also, if your gender makes it impossible for you to become pregnant and carry a foetus inside your body without resorting to science and surgery, then you must expect that your opinions on a woman's right to choose when and whether to reproduce will NEVER carry as much weight with me as an actual breeder's opinions. For you, it's abstract. For us, it's real. Ergo, I expect any debate on this subject to be handled with maturity, courtesy, and restraint. No poo throwing, no tubthumping, no trolling, and no shaming. I will ban commenters who are deliberately provocative, rude, and cruel over this. Don't be douches.

trying to jumpstart the ideas

I have a folder full of random pictures I need to sort through (personal, tumblr, lj, etc). Pick anywhere from two to five numbers (between 1 and 1000), and I will write a paragraph or two of original fic including all the images you've chosen.

(I'm heading to bed now, but I'll tackle this when I wake up. And if my explanation doesn't make any sense, I'll clarify it then as well :p)

poetry: Diving into the Wreck ~ Adrienne Rich

Diving into the Wreck
Adrienne Rich

First having read the book of myths,
and loaded the camera,
and checked the edge of the knife-blade,
I put on
the body-armor of black rubber
the absurd flippers
the grave and awkward mask.
I am having to do this
not like Cousteau with his
assiduous team
aboard the sun-flooded schooner
but here alone.

There is a ladder. )
