recs: american idol rps

Before I forget again.

American Idol RPS

Explanation: You see, it's because astolat and celli write it, so really, I think we can call this fictional coercion, because I am not a big RPS reader, but them, yes. It's like out_there as my Prison Break dealer.

Real Forever If by astolat - if this wasn't astolat, if this wasn't AIRPS, if this was about a man and a squid*, I'd still read it because the premise fascinates me. The neat part is, I read the AU label and went, hmm, and started reading to see what happened and it was not-AU, not-AU, not-AU, hey, where's the...

It took nine words.

"You're in the early stages of fixating," she said.


And then I said "Oh" and then I read it a few times a day for about two weeks or so and kept it open in my browser window to re-read. And I'm re-reading it now. Since you know, it's here and all.

Woke Up Married by celli - the premise is the title, and the title is the premise, and that is the philosphy. The execution is anything but that simple. It's cute and it's fun and I read it while it was in progress and whined when I didn't get my fix and then Celli blocked me (okay, she didn't, but it makes a good story if I say that, and then I can ask for a pony and someone will feel so sorry for me they will send it).

******

*if it were astolat, I might. otherwise, I'd do a find/replace "squid" with "dean winchester" to see how that would work and create a new and exciting way to traumatize myself badly.

avatar casting decisions

The WTF on the Avatar casting choices continues to be WTF.

Links:

ciderpress - What We Talk About When We Talk About regarding the white default and frustration that a part tailor-made for non-white actors is basically going to white actors.

For reference, the current cast being used for the movie.

The comm deadbrowalking has both a bingo card and an excellent list of links here. Some excellent reading in there, and I haven't hit it yet, but there's a petition and letter writing somewhere in here that I'll add when I find it. But go, read, and look at the cast list blankly again for a second, because--I just don't get it.

so that was loud and weird

....so there was a hugely loud, long noise outside our house, a great deal, I may speculate, like a plane flying far, far too low and getting massive wind resistance. Loud enough to drown out two TVs. For at least a full minute. Faintly, I think I can still hear it.

That is disturbing. We couldn't see anything, though. Going south toward the airport. Any other Austinites around, plz to be looking out your window for a something unusual. Like a large plane.

This isn't going to help my slowly growing flying issues, is it?

*looking out window* Hmm.

ETA: And now Child is planted on the front lawn speculating on cloud formations and esoteric noises. *facepalm* At least he's wearing pants. You have no idea how comforting that is right now.
