[sticky post]My Fics over the Centuries...
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014
Hi,

     this will become my archive post for my fics, which will be updated as regularly as I can manage until I am up to date.

Fics old; and maybe unwanted...Collapse )

  Here are two fics written way back in the first months after Tara's death in S6 of BtVS was broadcast here in the UK.

Two early successful, I think, buffy fics...Collapse )

  These six stories were all written as fanfics for The Chosen, as opposed to 'in the chosen!verse'. The first five got posted to the website itself; the last has only been posted to my previous lj. Hopefully one day it, it and the several fics I have written for that verse, will get posted to the website too.

Fics written for Jet Wolf's The Chosen...Collapse )

  These five fics were written in the year following me joining livejournal in 2009. I no longer have posting access to this journal so, if you have any comments on them, can you send them to me here. I hope to change this at some point, but they will eventually be re-posted. Other details, including character; 'verses etc will be added as time passes.
My first lj fics 2009-10Collapse )These are all my fics from 2011; a CSI drabble; a crossover and a NuWho S5 fic; but mostly Buffyverse stories.

My fics for 2011; the pace increases...Collapse )April 28th 2014
  Looked like 2012 was going to be a slow year, but I seemed to hit the afterburners in August; especially helped by the series I started for elisi but have yet to complete. Must get on that.

Whew! What was I taking in the Fall...Collapse )

Please, if you have any comments on the stories mentioned above; particularly if you have advice on changes to The Anyanka Solution and ideas as to what could be used for future Buffyverses from Amshel; then email me at kerkevik2014@gmail.com

  They will be most welcome.


  Goddess watch over us all,
  Ray.

phone issues
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014
Definitely going to have to replace the phone that Fiona gave me. It seems to have developed a thing where it deletes all my messages and notes. This means no new laptop, as it's going to mean a huge chunk of money out of available funds sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Just started on Equal Rites in the Discworld series, and should have copies of Mort and Sourcery by next weekend.

More than ever I am convinced my life slogan should be, "I think, therefore I am Rincewind."

Net Neutrality Petition
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014

thehpalliance:

If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.
Sign the petition, then spread the word.

I love this comment about fanfiction
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014
http://minathevampireslayer.tumblr.com/post/94196253843/what-is-significant-about-fan-fiction-is-that-it


What is significant about fan fiction is that it often spins the kind of stories that showrunners wouldn’t think to tell, because fanficcers often come from a different demographic. The discomfort seems to be not that the shows are being reinterpreted by fans, but that they are being reinterpreted by the wrong sorts of fans - women, people of colour, queer kids, horny teenagers, people who are not professional writers, people who actually care about continuity (sorry). The proper way for cultural mythmaking to progress, it is implied, is for privileged men to recreate the works of privileged men from previous generations whilst everyone else listens quietly.

"I wanted to live long enough to kiss a woman.”
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014
Dykes & Dykery

“I had a chance to read a copy of The Well of Loneliness that had been translated into Polish before I was taken into the camps. I was a young girl at the time, around twelve or thirteen, and one of the ways I survived in the camp was by remembering that book. I wanted to live long enough to kiss a woman.”

— A Jewish woman, in a conversation at the Lesbian Herstory Archives, quoted by Joan Nestle, in the Lesbian Herstory Archives Newsletter, June 1992.

From My Diary, July 1914
http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/from-my-diary-july-1914/

Leaves
Murmuring by miriads in the shimmering trees.
Lives
Wakening with wonder in the Pyrenees.
Birds
Cheerily chirping in the early day.
Bards
Singing of summer, scything thro' the hay.
Bees
Shaking the heavy dews from bloom and frond.
Boys
Bursting the surface of the ebony pond.
Flashes
Of swimmers carving thro' the sparkling cold.
Fleshes
Gleaming with wetness to the morning gold.
A mead
Bordered about with warbling water brooks.
A maid
Laughing the love-laugh with me; proud of looks.
The heat
Throbbing between the upland and the peak.
Her heart
Quivering with passion to my pressed cheek.
Braiding
Of floating flames across the mountain brow.
Brooding
Of stillness; and a sighing of the bough.
Stirs
Of leaflets in the gloom; soft petal-showers;
Stars
Expanding with the starr'd nocturnal flowers.

Not such a happy birthday...
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014
Yesterday was my 52nd birthday. I have now started my fifty-fourth year.
This was what I posted on facebook yesterday.

"Mostly what I feel this year is heartbroken over all the revelations about people I grew up loving and admiring.

Most of all Marion Zimmer Bradley who, along with Ursula K. Le Guin, did more to make me a science fiction fan than anyone else.

Rolf Harris wrote what is, to me at least, an anti-war song as great as any.

Heartbroken, when written down, doesn't really cover what I feel right now....

Thank you for the birthday wishes, but this cannot be a happy birthday.

I will always love and be a fan of Darkover, but how hard it will be to read of all my feminist heroes from those novels; knowing who created them.

Heartsick maybe; though I'm sure there are words in other languages that describe it far better.

Another year starts soon.

It has to be better.
"

Goddess watch over us all,
'tis ok to be Takei,
Ray.

A Series of Mighty Women: 3 ~ Syeda Ghazala
The Boy Who Waited
kerkevik_2014

When Syeda Ghazala joined the Pakistani police force twenty years ago, she didn’t think she would one day be leading a team of 100 police officers — all men — in Karachi, a sprawling metropolis of over 18 million people. Her appointment represents a significant advance for women’s empowerment in Pakistan, where women face widespread discrimination, especially in the public sphere.
