This is the list of my fan fiction posted on LJ, either on this journal or at my fan fiction journal, selinashideaway . Eventually I'm planning on posting all my fic there, but I haven't posted all the older stuff there yet. The fandoms listed include: Angel the Series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, NCIS, Smallville, Star Wars, and Supernatural.

I know that the Cap/Iron Man Reverse Big Bang is wrapping up but I was curious if anyone on my flist knows if the other big bang (the traditional type with the writing first and then the art) will be running this year?

*IMPORTANT UPDATE: PLEASE READ*

All U.S. Internet Providers will be policing downloads by July 12, 2012
Seriously. WHAT THE FLYING FUCK WORLD.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

 I've heard a few rumors about LJ changes and I'm curious to see if they're true.

The rumor is that if you don't post in your journal or comm every 15 days, they'll purge your account.  Has anyone else heard about this?  i'm updating my journals but I'm really curious about this.  If this IS happening, then I think LJ has finally lost my business and I'll be jumping to dreamwidth.
Because LJ keeps ignoring its users needs, this has been crossposted over from my Dreamwidth account. You can log into OpenID to comment at the original entry at http://selinamoonfire.dreamwidth.org/372912.html, where there are comment count unavailable. If you see a locked post here, feel free to friend me over on Dreamwidth.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Essential ACTA Resources

  • Read more about ACTA here: ACTA Fact Sheet
  • Read the authentic version of the ACTA text as of 15 April 2011, as finalized by participating countries here: ACTA Finalized Text
  • Follow the history of the treaty’s formation here: ACTA history
  • Read letters from U.S. Senator Ron Wyden wherein he challenges the constitutionality of ACTA: Letter 1 | Letter 2 | Read the Administration’s Response to Wyden’s First Letter here: Response
  • Watch a short informative video on ACTA: ACTA Video
  • Watch a lulzy video on ACTA: Lulzy Video

Say NO to ACTA. It is essential to spread awareness and get the word out on ACTA.

Google: End Piracy, Not Liberty

Millions of Americans oppose SOPA and PIPA because these bills would censor the Internet and slow economic growth in the U.S.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.

The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.



Tell Congress: Don't censor the Web

Fighting online piracy is important. The most effective way to shut down pirate websites is through targeted legislation that cuts off their funding. There's no need to make American social networks, blogs and search engines censor the Internet or undermine the existing laws that have enabled the Web to thrive, creating millions of U.S. jobs.

Too much is at stake — please vote NO on PIPA and SOPA.

From the flist: 



Spread the word, even you're not a US citizen, it is important for everyone!! It easy to do and it can change everything. More info by clicking on the banner.

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.


Read this analysis from boing-boing.net

Get on the phone and call your representative. Express your disapproval. Tell him or her exactly how you feel, and that you don't support this. Tell your friends to call their representatives, their Congressperson, and complain. Mention that you are a registered voter that takes your civic responsibility seriously and that you will use that vote to express your feelings about this.

http://www.rollcall.com/issues/57_60/Internet-Companies-Boost-Hill-Lobbying-210345-1.html?pos=olobh

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

How about a few art recs for today? Tumblr is one of my new online bffs because it not only brings me hot pictures of gorgeous men, but it also gives me access to wonderful artwork that I would never have a chance to see if I hadn’t broken down and finally gotten an account. Obviously under a cut because of image sizes and a warning tha tthis may slow down your browser.

For my last day of womenlovefest I'm thinking about starting a comm that focuses on Peggy. The problem is, I'm terrible with names. So I'm asking everyone interested to throw out suggestions so I can get a journal name for it before the end of the fest.

Okay, so my days are a little out of kilter. But LJ wouldn’t let me post one day so that doesn’t count as slacking.

Day three is a fic rec for a story I found on the capkink meme. A Diamond Ring by thy3tuth_iswon

This is about Peggy going through Steve’s things after the crash. It’s simple and I completely envy being able to put that much emotion in a small, lovely package. Peggy’s strong and heartbroken, but not broken. She’s still the strong woman we saw in the movie, but dealing with a terrible loss. I absolutely love her voice in this. Normally, I don’t rec fics without a happy ending, but this is one of my favorites.

Day two was going to be a fic I posted, but I found a beautiful story I want to rec so my fluff is going to be postponed a few days. Today is going to be quote and two gifs that leads up to the fic. Since some people may not have seen the movie, I'm putting it under a cut. Also, I'm not certain of how you credit things found on tumblr so if I've done it incorrectly, please let me know so I can edit.

Here is my first post for day one of womenlovefest.  This awesome character is Peggy Carter, one of the main characters in Captain America: the First Avenger.  This is the first time I've really dared to post a graphic on a comm so I'm excited and want to thank dramapunkfor the quick lesson in Photoshop that helped me so much.

Now a quick discussion of Peggy (which I may elaborate on later during the next seven days).  Peggy helped bring me back to fandom and pull me into a new fandom that I was too intimidated to jump into.   Honestly, when I went to see Captain America, I didn't know what to expect of Peggy.  The vague Wiki entries I'd read about her didn't reassure me about her character and I really was expecting the damsel in distress...obviously that wasn't what we got.  Peggy is a lady who helps save the day.  She's poised, intelligent, and an equal to the men around her without becoming the aggressive female that I'm so tired of seeing in fandom.  She's the heroine that I was hoping to find when I really needed someone like that in my fandom life.

So...thank you Marvel for not just giving me a hero that stole my fangirl soul, but the heroine that helped me decide to take the risk and try something new.

I signed up for this yesterday.  I have no idea what I'm going to do with my prompt, but this made me squee so much when I saw it.  If there's a female character that you love and someone else doesn't isn't that most women in fandom? then sign up and show your appreciation.
