my rabbit bit me, and other tales of post-awesome-weekend

A. VVC was *amazing*, per usual. Vids were *awesome*. I'm abusing the privilege of astericks. Will hunt down the vids that premiered adn post links, because oh my GOD there was a sparkly Atlantis vid.

No, seriously. There were *sparkles*.

But for now, the one I saw while doggedly trynig to catch up on flist.

Moons of Jupiter by fan_eunice, which is a total love-fest of Doctor Ten-ness that makes me all fuzzy for Tennant.

B. ...someone really thought that it was a good idea to abuse-troll (I--can't think of another term that applies), the pro-ana communities? Seriously? I thought it was a bad joke.

You know. I went to look, just from strange, morbid curiosity. I do believe that some of the opinions expressed are truly concern for the people participating in communitites that do seem to advocate self-harm.

...but I'm just going to say, I'd be a lot more convinced of this being All About the Children Ill People if this didn't leapfrog off the entire lj suspension debacle so handily.

Worry and condemnation are, I'm sure, an excellent and full-proof way of handling this--I'm very sure if/when they get deleted off lj, every one of them, deprived of their communities, will see the light and never engage in self-destructive behavior again, instead turning to eating healthy and not flailing when the very minimal amount of support they had is taken away. Nor will they regroup elsewhere. There's no chance of that.

Look, I am all for the Great Dramatic Gesture. But somehow, I'm not seeing how reporting pro-ana to abuse will accomplish helping these people, women or men, which I saw in a terrifying amount of justification in comments. So as a humanitarian cause, it fails in concept. As a huge fuck-you to lj--well, thanks. That's what we all want, really. We want to make casualties of each other. We want to make casualities of people with an actual medical problem.

Fuck that, I'm not using we. This is not fandom and I associate with fandom but never, ever with this. I don't know why attacking vulnerable, ill, and already self-destructive people was considered a fantastic idea. I don't even care. I do understand the rage at lj--but lj isn't going to twitch for this. Lj staff, CEO's, etc, this won't even make their radar in trying to point out hypocricy. What it actually did was make me twitch, both for the women and men in those communities and for the people that sat in judgement and used other human beings in a game, using them as coldly and relentlessly as any of the so-called Moral Majority (ish) use Save the Children. It wasn't even in a quest for power, or a quest for whatever form of morality a person espouses. It was To Make a Point. A point that means nothing.

Right. Longer than I thought.

C. Fixed remaining bad HTML on And All the World Beneath. Finally. What I can't figure out is why some of it just didn't translate to *either* P or BRs in the HTML, it just ran them together. It was--twitchy.

D. I miss svmadelyn. I mean, despite the fact I'm fairly sure that she tried to smother me the other night. There's really no other reason I can think of why the pillow was over my face so many times, you know? I mean, she says I was doing that, but you know? I wonder.

E. Met some *amazing* people and had this like, ten hour conversation with lovelokest and onnakitty that felt like ten minutes and was perenially startled every time someone mentioned how late it was.

F. May I never hear the word 'manbreast' again. It looks bad in text? You wouldn't really realize that it actually sounds five hundred times more traumatizing when spoken.

G. Waffles bit me. I think he's kind of bitter I was gone. It wasn't a hard bite, and he totally played it off as an accident, but I could totally tell.
