I think Marcellus may be part Kzin ... He always overplays his hand.

If I didn't already know that Martellus was a complete and utter SOB, I'd be starting to like him at this point ...

I am daily confronted with more disturbing information concerning the new LJ.  I don't know how long it will take, but I do foresee the primary headquarters for Section VII eventually moving to Dreamwidth.  The site is safer for posting, it has no one monitoring content and looking for violations of Russian law.  
 If you don't already have a Dreamwidth account, you should get one.  
I'm not shutting down lj, but it seems wise to anticipate that it could happen eventually.  Just be aware that it is now illegal to post anything to do with homosexuality (for those who read and/or write slash, or include it in any way in a story), political opinions or criticisms, and most likely certain kinds of religious references.
That is more than I can find acceptable, and especially as I sit here in the US, free from such limitations.  I certainly don't think being subject to the laws of another country is something I can tolerate, especially when those laws are morally repugnant.
If you're reading this you probably already have your DW account, but now I find myself not willing to post something on LJ that is remotely critical of Russia.  Mlaw posted an article in an earlier post on my journal that lists the possible actions that might be taken if a journal or post is targeted for its content.  
We're not a big deal in the larger picture of world events, but I don't think you have to be nowadays.  All it takes is a filter that finds key words and phrases.  Anyone can be in the line of fire, so to speak.
We've worked too hard to give up, and I'm grateful for Dreamwidth providing a safe haven.

Help! Mag7ficfinders Livejournal is closing and purging the site. Someone posted that dreamwidth has a similar site but I can't find it. Does anyone here have a link to it?

It's rained all day today up here in the damp Northeast, which just reinforces the need for a prompt post. After all, if it's going to be like this, who wants to go outside? Much nicer to stay in and have fun with prompts.

If you have ideas that you want to share or just don't think you'll get to, leave them as comments to this post. If you're looking for ideas to play around with, take a gander at what's here and see what the muse likes.

Prompts work best with a few vital pieces of information: Character(s)/pairing, universe, prompt.
Example? Okay! Josiah (or Chris), OW, the Devil and the bottle are ruining my life.

If nothing here sparks that spark for you, there are lots of unfilled prompts at our Del.icio.us archive. Go have a look at those, too!

Prompt away!

Prompts

  • Josiah (or Chris), OW, the Devil and the bottle are ruining my life.
  • Chris, ATF au, some weeks are longer than others
  • Buck & Chris; ATF au; Buck is hurt, Chris comforts
  • any and/or any; any au; bad pun days....
  • any, any, he hated the hospital/clinic - not so much for the anxiety of the emergency but for the boredom between the emergency and being well enough to leave.
  • any, any, it was a perfect Spring day - sunshine, comfortable temperature, and a breeze - blowing pollen all over everything.
  • any, any, and then there were the mosquitos . . .
  • Ezra, any, any, it was in the wee hours of the morning, when the veil between here and the hereafter was at its finest, that Ezra often found himself sitting in the deserted (hospital cafeteria/saloon) playing games of chance with someone who smelled a lot like Death. So far, he had been the winner, but he never expected that to be the case . . .

Reading Room and Beyond...

It's Friday, and normally a Reading Room post is one story.  Today I'm directing traffic, considering how scattered things have been with the LJ/DW travel that's been going on.
Listed below are some of the recent postings that may have gotten a little lost in the shuffle.  They are important to our community, and with some scheduling changes might have been missed with everything else that's been going on.  I know I need to catch up on my reading, so perhaps others are in the same space. 
Also remember that carabele is hosting an Impromptu Challenge featuring Shakespeare's Birthday, so if you don't have it ready for today there's still time to write and post for this literary event.

 The prompt:

What if Napoleon had a secret? Something that perhaps not even Waverly knows about... maybe.  What can come of such a deep and dark element to the CEO of UNCLE Northwest?

 In case you're seeing double on some entries, it is because a few people have posted here and on LJ, so that when I import it creates a double entry.  No worries, we'll just let these things slide for now.  It will make it harder to miss a story, and that's a good thing.

What if Napoleon had a secret? Something that perhaps not even Waverly knows about... maybe.  What can come of such a deep and dark element to the CEO of UNCLE Northwest?

When Illya gets chewed out because of his partner's unexplained absences, he decides it is time to find out what is going on . . .

Black Tights...the link takes you to AO3. Also available to read on DW.

Napoleon and Illya had returned to New York after helping Clara escape with her husband Stephan and the gypsy Emil to Italy. As they expected, Mr. Waverly had not been pleased about their delayed return though he grudgingly admitted that the paperwork Emil had brought out of Terbuf would be instrumental in toppling its corrupt government.

One For My Baby Lyrics
Translation in progress. Please wait...

It's quarter to three,
There's no one in the place 'cept you and me
So set 'em' up joe
I got a little story I think you oughtta know

We're drinking my friend
To the end of a brief episode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

I know the routine
Put another nickel in that there machine
I'm feeling so bad
Won't you make the music easy and sad

I could tell you a lot
But you gotta to be true to your code
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

You'd never know it
But buddy I'm a kind of poet
And I've got a lot of things I want to say
And when I'm gloomy, won't you listen to me
Till it's all, all talked away

Well, that's how it goes
And joe I know you're gettin' anxious to close
So thanks for the cheer
I hope you didn't mind
My bending your ear

But this torch that I found
It's gotta be drowned
Or it soon might explode
So make it one for my baby
And one more for the road

Our content importer has mostly caught up with its backlog; almost everything that's still listed as being "in the queue" are jobs that were tried, failed once or more with a temporary failure, and are waiting to try again. (The importer tries a few times, at successively longer intervals, when it gets a failure it thinks might be temporary/might correct itself later on.) This means that new imports scheduled now should complete in hours (or even minutes), not the "several days" it's been taking.

If you tried to schedule a second import while the first one was still running, at any time in the past 10 days or so, you may have confused the poor thing. If you think your import should be finished by now and it isn't, and you're seeing "Aborted" on the Importer Status part of the Importer page, feel free to open a support request in the Importer category and we'll look into it for you. (It may take a little bit before you get a response; those of us who have the access to look into importer problems have been really busy for the past two weeks or so, and I at least need a few days to catch my breath a bit before diving back into the fray! But we'll do what we can.)

I hope all y'all are continuing to settle in well to your new home!
This month's artist is Frank Sinatra and the songs are "Luck Be a Lady" and "One for My Baby."
