All porn, all the time

When I first saw last night there was a frotfest, I was all "haha, oh, MERLIN FANDOM, you have fests for everything!" But then I went and wrote two stories for it in two days. Yes, stories, even though it's supposed to be commentfic, because we all know that I can't write anything short any more.

Anyway, if you fancy some too-long frottage porn comment fic that smells of the lamp*, here: Gwaine/Merlin in the library, Gwaine/Gwen and sex pollen.

And, because I've been meaning to link it for a while and this seems an appropriate opportunity: I've been curating a porn tumblr, which you can find at frigging. (Gosh, I love the internet. I totally just gave you my porn stash, you guys! Clear my cache if I'm in a plane crash or something, will you?) I probably don't need to say this, but it's absolutely NSFW.

And if you need to know if it's okay for you to look at before you click: Sometimes it contains people consensually engaging in rough/kinky sex (without trigger warnings). It also contains men doing men, men doing women, women doing women, women doing men, trans and genderqueer people doing and being done by other trans and genderqueer people and men and women, multiple combinations of the above at the same time. It also contains people doing themselves, people just posing and looking delicious on their own; all of the above including people who are fat and thin and in between. Most of them are naked.

Basically, my brain is just a giant, polymorphous, pansexual slut (and I say that with totally reclamatory intentions), and I reblog/post anything that pushes my varied buttons.

Speaking of which, this photo in particular (again, NSFW) has been frantically mashing my button with a sweaty fist for several days now. I probably don't need to explain why if you've read any of my fanfiction lately.

If you're also a lover of tumblr for its fantastic porn curation, rec me your favourites? (including yours, if you've got one :D)

* the interpretation of which meaning I stayed up way too late writing it, rather than the one where I laboured long and hard to result in great literature.

You guys, it is so damn awesome to have my writing mojo back.

The Epic Romance is now 12,000+, but I took a break from it today to start writing some porn for the kink meme (1,000+ words so far). And there are a couple of other prompts there I'm itching to write for. Need more hours in the day!

Also this weekend I started futzing around with developing a custom skin for the AO3 (more info on personalised AO3 skins here), which I am growing increasingly fond of, though I discover re-used classes where I don't want them to be every ten minutes and am thus spending half my time happily coding and half tearing my hair out.

I also got it into my head that I might make that "a model, idiot" Eoin Macken icon, but upon doing a google image search, became quickly overwhelmed by THE GIANT NIPPLES. Google image searching also turned up this photo of EM & Mr James, which, WHAT? (I'm sure I'm already late to the party that is that photo, but still, allow me to have my moment of WHAT?)

Anyway, that's all I got. Do I have to go to work tomorrow? I want to stay at home and write trashy smut instead. CanIcanI?

The quarterly post about Kiva.

One of my unattached-to-any-public-holiday-in-particular resolutions this year has been to make another loan on Kiva whenever I'm gifted money. As it was just extended family christmas, it's loan time!

It was also opportunity to take a peek at Team Fandom again. Nearly $15,000 has been loaned via team fandom. I'm counting that as an uber-win \o/

(If you've no idea what you're talking about, check out my crash-course post on Kiva.)

Woot! [personal profile] cupidsbow has just posted today's 12 Days of Cliche work, a rec set for Kidfic and Mpreg in the Torchwood fandom.

I am willing to stand up and be scorned (and secretly - or not so secretly - agreed with): I freaking love this premise in this fandom. There are some brilliantly clever, hilarious and moving stories based around these cliches, and Cathy has recced pretty much all of my favourites.

So, go and check them out!

Against Pseudonymity and Sexual Shame
The thing is, writing under a pseudonym is absolutely great for blogging. Unfortunately, it's not much good for anything else. If you want to write for a major publication, even one that's just online, and if you want to get paid for your work writing anywhere, you basically have to write under your own name. Which is all well and good, except for that without my writing that I've done under a pseudonym, I'm nobody, just a young lawyer with a little work experience and a lot of attitude.


What is the source of my nagging feeling that if those things were on the internet, popping up under a Google search for the name I was given at birth, that a wide swath of the employers I might someday want to work for would never hire me?

It's one thing only: externally-imposed bogus sexual shame. It's not as if my political opinions are so far out as to represent some kind of employment liability. I'm a pretty standard liberal. I haven't written anything racist or offensive. No, the only reason I'm worried about these writings is that they acknowledge, frankly and openly, that I'm a sexual being. But it's not like I'm writing a sex blog filled with the details of my exploits. I'm simply exploring the ramifications of sex and sexuality in the life of a young woman, a politically-minded feminist. And that, to my mind, is dangerous.

In my case: replace "writing" above with the swathes of web work and ICT I've done in fandom over the past 7 years. Sigh.

I'm nothing if not capable of finding distraction on the internet!

Rediscovered Wordle, which creates beautiful word clouds of text you paste in/rss feeds you enter.

I spent far too long with the "randomize" button, but this is probably my favourite one for We Happy Few: Cut for size )

When I have a printer (and a wall!) I think I'll print out that one and put it on my wall. It's like a condensed trigger of word joy!

I also like how the font/positioning etc makes it look like a poster for a pulp/retro novel or something.

Ah, I wish I had a story on the go now so I could immerse myself in writing again.

ETA: It's so tempting to create word clouds for each story and just have that as the story summary. Though, that'd probably end up shiny for me, annoying for everyone else. Still, such a great visual snapshot.

Each week I re-shuffle what goes into each section, it really depends on the weight of whatever I bookmark that week *sigh*. Though "Geekery" is not a section this time, that's only because it appears in ALL sections below.

That said, this is pretty much the perfect icon for this particular set of bookmarks.

New Gmail Theme(s)

Gmail have rolled out themes/skinning, though they've not put a link to where you can change that yourself somewhere useful.

So if you'd like to change your Gmail theme, you can do so here:

(More info via Lifehacker here.)

I don't mind the new default theme, though what I *don't* like is the lower opacity font colour - just give me black text, dammit, I don't want the stinking grey! But I am trying to get used to it. And my greasemonkey Better Gmail scripts alleviate that a bit. At least I think it will, they only made the change this morning so I haven't had a chance to look at Gmail at home on my extended Firefox.
