1. What is happening on the Lizzie Bennet Diaries twitter accounts? WHAT? Is this a Thing or are they just tormenting us? Someone needs to tell me so I do not get my hopes up.

2. Speaking of the LBD, I had been keeping up with Emma Approved - though I bailed in the middle of the last episode because of referred awkwardness. Actually, that's frequently how I feel about Emma in almost any incarnation tbh, so I've been pretty ambivalent about this series so far. Though I did watch parts of the 2009 BBC adaptation recently which I had never seen before and had the following observations: a) Romola Garai in the role of Emma could be Katee Sackhoff's long-lost sister, and b) I generally do not have any interest in Sherlock Holmes adaptations (I know, I am weird), but I might be convinced to try Elementary just because Jonny Lee Miller.

3. Speaking of Emma, though, here is a ficrec:

#knemma (6329 words) by Tulina

Rating: General Audiences

Emma W
you know, you set really high standards
for the men in my life
Emma W
I guess this is how Tom Hiddleston’s little sister feels
if he has one.
I guess.

I laughed SO HARD at this, you guys. Fandom love with a big fat bow on top.

4. Which immediately lead me to re-reading this SG-1 fic which I've probably already recced 18 times or something already but whatever:

#sg1wedding (1312 words) by openended

Politics hijacked their wedding into a big floofy interplanetary affair. So everyone takes to Twitter.

@stillalive: An Air Force general, a Jaffa leader, and a Tok’ra high council member walked into the bar.
@blewupasun: @stillalive is this the beginning of a joke or something that actually happened?

5. Also have been slowly re-reading all the Jojo fic. Because SG-1 nostalgia. And also because of lines like this:

Why blonde? Why did she have to be blonde? And hot? And smarter than him? Why? He *hated* blonde, hot, smart women. He'd freaking *married* the last one. (from Just Don't Eat the Cake) Hee.

6. Today I was actually taking some time to write some stuff and rather than working on either of the fics I meant to, I have written an insert scene for a fic I posted over four years ago that will never see the outside of my notebook and started a sequel for something else that I shouldn't have. Oops. Oh well. All words are good, right?

Here concludes this digest of my recent fannish life. *g*

don't blink

1) Most people I know have a complicated relationship with the internet. Like, yay, it's so cool that we have all this nifty stuff! Boo, I am so much better at wasting my time than I have ever been before! Yay, blogs about anything you can possibly think of! Boo, crazy people commenting on every blog you can possibly think of! etc etc. Sometimes I think, wow, I really need to just turn off the computer and walk away for a month or two. (Though we all know I'd never really be able to do that!!!)

But then the lights go out at the Superbowl, and reaction on social media ranges from Zombie apocalypse! to Oh, see, *now* people care about post-Katrina infrastructure to Don't blink!!!11. Y'all, society may or may not be heading to hell on an IP packet, but we are going to be really damn funny on the way if it is. *g*

2) Comm pimping: [ profile] annerbhp just recently started up [community profile] the_lbd for all us Lizzie Bennet Diaries fanatics. Which was *excellent* timing as I had been wondering earlier that day if there was an LJ comm, but hadn't quite gotten around to looking for one yet. Come join in the fun!

3) Speaking of the internet, I spent part of this morning fixing mistakes in the last fic I posted. I was sort of in a hurry when I put it up (since the holiday season was waning pretty quickly and I wanted to slide in under the wire) and despite the best efforts of my beta, I kept messing with stuff on my own and well ... you know how that ends. Missing words, extra phrases, blah blah blah. But seriously, you guys, updating a fic that lives four different places is completely ridiculous (though it would only be three if I'd actually crossposted from dreamwidth to lj, I suppose). I still haven't edited the version on yet. I need to let go of one of these archives, and I suppose the logical thing to do is to stop actually posting on my journal and just link from there to the bigger archives but ... I am very attached to having my fic posted on my journal, and I need the dreamwidth backup of that, and and and. Idk. Fanfic problems, I haz them.

On a similar topic, what's the general feeling about linking fics on tumblr? Are people doing that? I have seen some people doing that. Seriously, I need another place to post links like I need a migraine or something, but so much of fandom seems to have moved that direction. Then again my tumblr has like 14 followers, and most of it is people from around here, so it all just seems silly. Here, let me show you my social media awkwardness ....

4) I really need another posting format besides numbered lists. Comic strip? Haiku? Interpretive dance? lol
