So, I've decided to create new masterlists - and, eventually, delete the original one - for my different fandoms and series. I'm starting with the easiest, which is for my Lyrical Verse, my Hetalia series focusing originally on the UK siblings. Starting to branch out some now, but that is still the basic idea. The name comes from something about every fic being inspired by or taken from a song.

Here be fics )

Well, I've been gone forever, back now with a new fic and a new fandom.

Title: We're Given and Denied
Fandom: Avengers
Series: At The Touch Of Your Hand
Pairings: Tony/Pepper, pre-Pepper/Tony/Steve, past-Steve/Peggy
Notes: Part one of a soulmate AU where people bond at first skin-to-skin contact
Summary: Steve never wanted a soulmate - he always figured he'd be dragging them down. Tony secretly didn't want anything more than to find his. Pepper, well, she just wanted to bond to someone who wanted to know her before they got sucked into being bonded. When Tony and Pepper bond, they realize they're incomplete, but there's no way to find their missing third - until Tony does, and then it all becomes a mess because, really, none of them know what to do now.

Above is a link to Congressman Charles Dent's (R-PA) video where he discusses the bill he is co-sponsoring, the Enemy Expatriation Act (H.R. 3166), followed by a link to the bill's text. The bill, if passed, is meant "to add engaging in or supporting hostilities against the United States to the list of acts for which United States nationals would lose their nationality." (Quote from govtrack.us) Now, Dent says that the bill is meant to take away American citizenship from terrorists, presumably to make the American people safer.

I respect the intention to stop terrorism and protect innocent people. I'm one of the people being protected, I very well should. But things like this scare me. Why? Well, for one thing, the bill doesn't specify how this is to be determined. Someone will lose their citizenship for engaging in or supporting "hostilities" and hostilities in this context means "any conflict subject to the laws of war". It makes no mention of how this is to be proven. I'd like to be optimistic and believe that very strong proof of involvement or support will be needed to strip someone of their nationality, but... This bill gives no indication one way or another.

It's not this bill that is the truly frightening thing, though. The issue here is the precedent it could so easily set. This bill talks about hostilities. But could someone use this bill to write another one where "hostilities" is replaced with "dissent"? I honestly don't know, and I'm not trying to start a panic, but I feel like there needs to be something more concrete. At least tell us what, precisely, counts as support. Tell us how this will be determined, tell us what proof there will need to be before an American citizen loses that title. Because I read this and I wonder if it will end here.

I support anti-terrorism measures. I don't want another terrorist attack to happen in the US, or anywhere else for that matter, not ever. I just wish this bill was more specific. Engaging in hostilities is obvious, but what constitutes support? Sending money, most likely. But what else? Directly saying that you believe in al-Qaeda? Or saying something that runs counter to "America's ideals", a phrase Congressman Dent uses in his video? The former is supporting terrorism, and I can live with that, though I still don't like the precedent it sets. But the latter, that isn't terrorism. That's dissent. "We must not confuse dissent with disloyalty." Edward R. Murrow, considered the father of broadcast news, said that in the 1950s, and it's still true.

I would like to think that our government believes that. I would like to think that they would never have that confusion, and will not be tempted to move against those who do not support terrorists, but merely disagree with their country. As American citizens we're allowed to disagree. If that disagreement leads to threatening the safety of others directly or indirectly, then measures should be taken to protect that safety. But if it does not, then there is no justification for punishment.

I've been trying to find a media report on this from a trustworthy source, some sort of report that will hopefully go more in-depth on this issue, perhaps with an interview from Congressman Dent or one of his co-sponsors. I can't find anything, and the news I have found comes from outlets I'm not familiar with and can't be sure are on the level. I tried the New York Times, I tried the Washington Post. There are no articles on either website. I can't say if that is a good or a bad sign. I hope that I'm reading too much into this, and that the intent behind this bill is exactly what Congressman Dent says it is, and that only true supporters of terrorist organizations will be targeted by it should it pass. I just can't find enough reliable information to be certain of that.

Title: In The Days of Auld Lang Syne
Fandom: Axis Powers Hetalia
Rating: PG-13
Characters: England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Northern Ireland, Hong Kong, Canada, Prussia, Sealand, Kugelmugel, Brittany, Austria, Portugal, America, China, Russia, Latvia, Liechtenstein (not all in this chapter)
Pairings: America/Portugal, England/America/Portugal (possibly only on England's part, possibly one-sided Ireland/India and Austria/Wales; France/Scotland, Cornwall/Brittany, Canada/Prussia, and other pairings yet to be revealed
Summary: New Year's resolutions lead to so much more. Some are seeking answers or absolution, some are making confessions, and others are just trying to help. For the British-Celtic family and those tied to them, 2012 will be a very important year.
Chapter Summary: Resolutions are made, but no one knows just how momentous they will turn out to be.
Disclaimer: Untitled belongs to Simple Plan, Hetalia to Hidekaz Himaruya. All OCs are mine, however. Title and cut text from Daughtry's All These Lives, and so also not mine.
A/N: So, this story will, hopefully, be twelve chapters, not counting the prologue and epilogue, which will of course be New Year's 2012. I think the last chapter will be set around Christmas. But basically, the idea is a chapter for each month of the year, as the various resolutions lead to hijinks and hopefully, people getting their acts together. It should be interesting, I hope. (Even I don't know how all of it will go; I've got some plans but characters tend to hijack my stories, so we'll see how it plays out together.)

So, 2011. For some of you on my flist, it's already 2012, but do remember, dears, I'm on the East Coast of the U.S., I am one of the last to ring in a new year, and it can't come soon enough. Ugh, 2011. There were some high points, like really hitting it off with a couple of new friends, falling into a new fandom (hello, Hetalia) and a couple of other things, but... Well, for the most part, kind of a meh year, with a couple of emotional upheavals along with it. Some of the stress was very much my own doing, I know that, but it's only fueled my New Year's resolutions, which I am keeping to myself in hopes of not jinxing them. I have learned some lessons, and it's time to stamp out this irresponsible side before it becomes more than a flash in the pan of bad side effects. *nods* I'm 21, time to grow up.

But hey, no more doom and gloom. It's a new year, I've got at least one thing lined up for the early summer that has me very, very excited, and I see no reason why 2012 can't be fantastic. For those of you here for fic, stand by for a post blast later tonight - what better way to ring in the new year? I hope at least one of them is to your liking. *bows*

Farewell to 2011, looking forward to 2012, where I fully believe the world will not end in December. ;)

So, posting from Dreamwidth, though most of you are probably still reading it via LJ. As a side note, I am fae_boleyn on DW too for anyone who would like to follow me there. :D

Anyway. No updates this Christmas, aiming for New Year's instead for what will hopefully be a multi-post. *crosses fingers*

Following Hetalia Bloodbath 2011 for Christmas, it's so exciting and silly, and just a lot of fun.

Anyway, I want to wish everyone on my flist a Merry Christmas, a Happy mid-Hanukkah, or an early Happy Kwanzaa!

Did this one the last time it made the rounds, but it was interesting so I'm giving it another go. Nicked from [livejournal.com profile] ilovetakahana.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

OK, so, like almost everyone around here on LJ (and Facebook, and Twitter, and Tumblr) I’ve heard about SOPA and what it could mean. I’ve gone through the motions of spreading the word and contacting my representatives, because it’s my right to do that. But, I do want to tell everyone this; it’s not time to panic yet. At the moment, the bill is in the House. But here’s the thing. Even if it passes the House, it has to get through the Senate. The House is Republican-controlled, and the Senate is Democrat-controlled. Partisanship generally sucks, it creates deadlocks and things like that, but in this case it very well might work to our advantage. If SOPA passes the House, that means the Democrats in the Senate might reject it on the simple basis of it having Republican support. Also, it very clearly is to benefit corporations, which is something Democrats tend to frown on. And, even if, by some shocking chance, it does get past the Senate? It has to get signed by Obama. There’s a rumor going around that Obama has sworn to veto it - I don’t know if it’s true. But while I’m ambivalent about Obama and always have been (I liked Clinton in ‘08 and Obama never did win me over, sorry) it does seem like something he’d refuse to sign. So odds are we’ll be all right. Don’t stop spreading the word, of course, it can only help to let the people in D.C. know what their constituents think, but don’t panic or make plans to move to Canada just yet either.

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.


“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.

So, I guess this counts as a meme of sorts. Do you name your technology/kitchen appliances/whatever? And if so, what has a name and what are the names?

Here are mine:
Laptop: Arthur (yes, as in the Inception point man)
iPod: Mark Smeaton (he got beheaded, so this is why it died, isn't it?)
MP3 player: Austria (it makes sense in Hetalia context!)
Kindle: Tris (after a Tamora Pierce character who is a major bookworm)
Coffeepot: Ianto (if you watch Torchwood, this makes sense)
My fic flash drive: Daemon (It's always with me, like a daemon in the His Dark Materials books)

It's half my fandoms in microcosm! It's kind of silly, and also utterly ridiculous, but hey, it's fun.

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I will reply saying:

  • How I FEEEEEL about this character
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character
  • My unpopular opinion about this character
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.
