By way of midnightsjane
I found an unexpected treasure: Calvin&Hobbes
fanfic. No, really. Reminiscence
by Kenya Starflight
Summary: Calvin is all grown up... how has the passage of time affected him and those around him?
I keep thinking that an Angel and/or Bones vid to Oingo Boingo's 'Dead Man's Party' could be a very shiny thing indeed, but that song runs six minutes long. I figure if I actually ever want to veer into vidding it would be advisable to start with something several minutes shorter. The other problem is that when I listen to the song, I'm getting flashes of a Bones crossover in which Booth is shanshued Angel... only I don't buy into the shanshu angle myself, at all; it has never worked for me because the characters are too unalike. ***
's post here
(which is chock full of info) I followed the wiki link to cat macros (I just wanted to know why they're called that) and thusly discovered lolcode
, a code entirely based on lolcat 1337 sp34k!!1! Here's an example:
CAN HAS STDIO?
I HAS A VAR
IZ VAR BIGGER THAN 10?
BTW this is true
VISIBLE "BIG NUMBER!"
BTW this is false
VISIBLE "LITTLE NUMBER!"
I mean, is this the coolest thing or what? I'm not really kidding... It's hilarious, but I also find it really fascinating to watch a language evolve before ones eyes. I even may have a *cough*Klingon guide*cough* lying around somewhere.
I gave my roommate my printout of stoney321
's PotC fic
'You Had a Charming Air, All Cheap and Debonair' (which I haven't found the time to read myself because I am still busy with my stack of unread Bones fic). And now it looks like the roommate is hooked. Since she's not on LJ and I'm not in the fandom, I thought I might ask the flist for recs. Do you know any good PotC
fics? Jack-centered preferably, and I'm pegging her as a gen reader, but not-overly-graphic slash or het are fine, too. ***
I found another longish Bones fic. :) I'm only a few chapters in and like it muchly, very promising. And I found it at ffn, too. Fanlib's continuous dissing of ffn has really made me appreciate the good old pit so much more.
