Thank you for writing or drawing something for me! Let me start off with my general likes and Do Not Wants, and then I'll give some specific prompts and ideas for my requested ships. Please know that if you have an idea of your own for one of these ships, go for it! (As long as it abides by my DNWs.) You might also want to look through my previous Dear Author letters as I tend to request many of the same ships over and over again. So any previously requested prompt would be more than welcome here.

Rest In Peace, Roy Dotrice

Roy Dotrice has passed away at the age of 94. May he rest in peace.

I wasn’t sure who he was at first, since I’m not interested in Game of Thrones. That is, I didn’t realize who he was until I checked IMDB and saw that he had played Roger Wyndam-Pryce in one episode (Lineage) of Angel. Now I remember him. Looking through the rest of his filmography, I have also seen him in Nightmare Classics: Carmilla (1989), Tales From The Crypt (1972), and two episodes of Faerie Tale Theatre. He was also Zeus in three episodes of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.

I might need to track down his episode of Tales From The Darkside, wherein he plays "Vampire Count Jeffrey Draco."

My very own own Senator Ed Markey, along with California Congressman Ted Lieu, has created a bill that would require authorization from Congress (either as a declaration of war or the more-common- of-late authorization of force) before a nuclear strike.

This is a wonderful bill, as it both addresses certain Trumpian problems, /and also/ reinforces that Congress is, actually, the branch that was given the power to declare war in the Constitution. This is a thing that has been taken out of their hands for a long time, which is a problem, separation of powers-wise. (The last declared war? 1942, against some Axis allies.)

I mean, also, I really truly don't think that our current president is the best person to have that kind of unalloyed power in the hands of, but that's only one reason for being so glad about this bill. (It is probably many other people's reason.)

Anyway, it's HR 699/S 200. (House/Senate version. House text.)

If you are so inclined, call your Senators and Congressfolk to urge them to pass it. (202) 224-3121, or use Resistbot. (Text the word "resist" to 50409 to begin.)

Rachelmanijia (who is spearheading this) has more info, a script, and other ideas here, and the campaign is hashtagging it up at #PullTheFootball, if you're Twitter-inclined.

If you're not American, feel free to share the info around anyway; the more folks who get this info, the better.

a meme of questions

Gotten from a few different people, because why not?

Actually, it's less questions and more statements that you respond to, but the point is, words.

Cut for length. )

A Problem With Editing The Form

Is anyone else having issues when it comes to editing their Yuletide sign-up? I wanted to add a couple of other fandoms in there, as well as more characters I was willing to write in another. However, when I tell it to save, I end up with an error. “502 Bad Gateway. The server returned an invalid or incomplete response.”

It’s like that in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. The only workaround I’ve come up with at the moment is jotting down everything I already have, and that I wanted to add, deleting the current sign-up, and doing another sign-up form with the corrected content. I just worried I would end up with that error again.

Speaking of Yuletide, [personal profile] damzel had the idea of gathering together a list of the gothic horror/gothic romance fandoms that were nominated this year. That’s currently unofficially underway at [community profile] hidden_passages. If there are any that were missed, (I’m certain there must be) feel free to add them there.
