children of dune - leto 1

well, that's going to be special

Via amireal and sf_drama:

AT&T Reportedly Blocking 4chan at techcrunch (and links to other places).

Reportedly. I'm just going to say if this is true...well. Wow. This will end in tragedy and a lot of terrifying macros. Anyone using AT&T able to confirm? Before the looting starts in the internetz streets and we are all surfing at 56K speeds due to mass rebellion?

More at Encyclopedia Dramatica and I don't need to say NSFW.

....seriously. Who thought this was a good idea?

ETA: /b/ is the board being most affected. This may not pply to all of the chans.

ETA 2:See ED article for updated info on AT&T's statement and the lowering of the block (probably).

more recs, yes, I know, but this is how I reward myself!

Recs! Yes, I know, but I am rewarding myself for twenty pages of editing, so I am allowed to procrastinate and rave about awesome fic.

I'm trying not to theme by author, since in general, if I like one story by an author, it's fair to say I'll like everything by them, so probably only one story by an author per rec set.

Star Trek Reboot RPS - Zach/Chris

Mancrush by withthepilot - my love for this is pure and giggly and awesome. Also, she totally had me at the title.

Hang Me Up to Dry by 1297 - this is delicious, delicious, delicious porn with a taste for exhibitionism. Yes, I know, I love this fandom. And this author, for that matter.

Take Me Out by winterlive - Zach/Chris/Zoe, Zach/Chris - this was a very clever plan. I love threesomes with bisexual epiphanies, and this one is smoking. I also love winterlive and am trying to set up a cult in her honor. Apply in comments for junior priestess positions, plz.

Inhabiting by gigantic - bar none, this is one of my favorite stories. It's slow and meandering and builds a relationship from the ground up and seamlessly translates to romance until it feels there's no other way this ever could have gone. It's even better in re-read.

It's a Bright Day (Even If You Stand in the Dark) by xsunnydayx - This is another in the re-read regularly category. I'm trying to think of a way to get across how pretty this one is, but just, you know, go for it.

Poll, As I Am Bored

Okay, so. Because I like to please, and also, because I can't think of what to do next, pick two fandoms you'd like to see me rec from and if I have stories from them, I'll do a rec post on the two most checked.

[Note; I haven't updated my rec page in like, a year, so believe it or not, I have like, five hundred unsorted recs, some not even marked yet. This is getting intimidating. This will help me hunt them down!]
