LJ recently moved it's servers to Russia and changed it's Terms of Service. There's an article on Gizmodo here and on another site here. I've had some people ask if we are going to move the Comm to another site. At the moment, no we don't. But I wanted to get opinions on the matter.

Hi, everyone! I'm not sure if you've had the chance to catch the first (and only) broadcast episode of the latest series Star Trek Discovery on CBS last night or through Netflix outside of the US, but I thought it'd be a good idea to have a post in this community about it for those who want to discuss it.

My own thoughts are pretty mixed. I'm not much of a fan of the JJ Abrams look myself, and the cinematography was, um, confusing at times with all the dutch angles and cuts. That being said, I'm interested in how the series will portray the Klingons, as they seem to be more inspired by series like Game of Thrones in their look and feel this time around, and I have high hopes for the lead actresses. I'm very wary about the lead's connection to Sarek, Spock's father, and how that will play out.

Please make sure that you label your posts appropriately for spoilers. A good rule of thumb would be something like this: SPOILERS EPISODE 1 or SPOILERS EPISODES 1 & 2 before the main body of your comment.

6 - DARK PAGE


Loving a fictional character not only brings in the aforementioned trouble from the outside - it also tends to lead to turmoil on the inside.

The biggest issue for me is that I don't know what Jean-Luc would actually think of me if he was real. He's from an advanced future where Earth has gotten rid of its demons and is a founding and important member of the (usually peaceful) United Federation of Planets - a future where replicators take care of your every need and no one has to live in poverty, etc etc. This is all great, of course, but it also makes me wonder just why a man like Jean-Luc would bother with an anxious, emotionally unstable and fragile man like me from Earth's violent and dark past who has absolutely nothing to offer except his unconditional love.

Title: Dawn of Destruction

Summary: Bespin is evacuated, and Rey has to face Kylo Ren once more.

Prompt: Abandon Ship!

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Author's Notes: Was about to get a continuation of my "Shara Lives" story -- and I will get to that, never fear -- but let's say a bit of a recent revelation of awful about The Last Jedi sort of got me typing in my main verse again. Anyway, here's the Bespin evacuation scene.

Did anyone on this community attend KiScon this past weekend? It was my first time attending and was a thoroughly wonderful experience. I'd be glad to connect on DW with folks who were there.

Prompt: Rare Pairs

Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Artist's Notes: Was mostly thinking of doing things on the Ben and Poe side, as that's mostly where I do my work -- in the backstory. Mostly they're based off my story "The Broken Edge", a.k.a. my giant-as-heck backstory for Ben and company.

Hello, everybody!! Could you, please, help me find:

1. Car accident fic. In this one, Jared and Jensen are fighting and Jensen leaves. It is storming (I think) and he crashes his car like two minutes after he left. Jared hears the crash, goes out and sees its Jensen and tries to save him. I remember Jared getting injuried because of broken glass on the road.

2. Any Non-AU fics told in Jensen POV foccusing on Jared's depression. Like how does he feels about it and how he wants to help/helps Jared. Bonus points if the fic goes deep and aligns to the descriptions of the past few years Jared gave on his chapter in "Family dont end with blood".

3. Break-up and make-up fics. I am looking for ones in which the guys break up and Jensen does serious groveling to get Jared back.

4. Jared helping Jensen get over a bad break and the two of them getting together later on.

5. Possessive! Jealous! Jensen.

6. Fics in which Jensen wants to get it on with Jared but doesnt because he thinks the sex will be super vanilla due to Jared's puppy!dog personality. Later they get together and Jared does surprise him in the kink department.
 
 
5 - WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS



I've talked about a lot of hows, whens, wheres and whys, but now is the time to talk about the elephant in the room:

The "what?!" factor.

Being as open about my love for Jean-Luc as I am doesn't exactly bring in approval all the time (although I do feel the need to point out that a lot of people are very supportive) - many of those who encounter me probably wonder just how screwed up I must be to have fallen in love with a fictional character.

My first instinct is to react to this with anger, but then I remember that I have chosen to look at things from a different perspective these days: It's true that I'm a victim of severe (male) emotional abuse that went on every day for about 25 years of my life and that this still haunts me today in more ways than I care to count - but that is precisely why it's actually a miracle that I'm still capable of loving another person (real or not), much less a man.

Of course people who glance at my social media profiles think I'm "crazy", but since they don't know the backstory of it all, I can't really blame them.

 I expanded the list of interests in the profile, because it was mostly a list of cat breeds. No pedigree required at [community profile] cats !

Although of course pedigreed cats are also celebrated!

I switched to a cat-themed style, although I am open to the idea of improving it if anyone good at styling communities is interested in donating their efforts. I like all your ideas so far and hope this community will grow and become a resource.

That said, I will share that my older cat's health crisis has reached a very sad point and I will be saying goodbye to her on Friday. So I may not be on here that much over the rest of the week and weekend. But I will be back -- I will have one cat (in icon) remaining!
