monanotlisa: Kara, smiling her adorable Looks Like A Cinnamon Roll smile (kara zor-el - supergirl)
I can only echo Victoria P. and bemoan the fact that AO3 was down for quite a while, so it's even harder than usual to gauge whether anyone liked what I penned down as a follow-up fic:

Hat-tip to [personal profile] st_aurafina, who introduced me to the beauty of a fluffy take on Kara/Daisy -- you should read both chapters of her tale first and then segue into mine. My story is not as good as hers, but it gets the job done. :)

When the suggestion came up that our department participate in donating our time to the community, I jumped at the chance: This was about a West Oakland school, about local kids of color and their education in what the school called the McClymonds Day of Service and Celebration.

The Annual Femslash Kinkmeme 2016 is open!

I'm sure you're not surprised that there's a ton of Supergirl prompts. :)

(You can respond anonymously or not, whatever your preference. The AO3 has a Collection set up.)

...if you're petty like me, maybe you want to use my bookmark link for Supergirl fanfic on the Archive of our Own too: Filtering on the AO3 )

Let's post something that does not feature some type of activism link.

I fist-pumped tonight when Vienna Teng played "Stray Italian Greyhound" for us in the audience...and was reminded me of how much I associate certain artists or bands with time periods or people.

Artists that make think of fandom, or friends )
monanotlisa: (rock - vm)
Feeling a little under the weather, but that could just be a pretty active Friday: swimming for an hour in the morning; meeting my friend A. (the one from the barely-dripping waterfall in the Santa Cruz Mountains with the Manic Pixie Dream Boys) for chai in my neighborhood; going to Downtown Berkeley for a catch-up with [personal profile] cofax7 and ultimately as organized by her a Vienna Teng concert at the legendary ;) Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse -- a benefit for the Citizens' Climate Lobby, which is pretty much what it says on the tin; looks like an org worth checking out.

And of course Vienna Teng's worth checking out. She's delightful in person, connecting so well with her audience, and stating with an almost-straight face that she would now perform "a perky little song about failed climate negotiations."
monanotlisa: (apples how you like dem)
Happy Thanksgiving to my US-Americans who celebrate; I am too: In the last 24 hours, Sally and I, together or solo, have made way too much food )

We'll take the food to her brother's home in the South Bay, where there's going to be thirty people celebrating, straight and queer and poly and coupled and single and Christian and agnostic and atheist and ethnically Jewish and every combination thereof: It's not going to be a difficult Thanksgiving for me in any way, shape, or form. And for that I'm thankful, while thinking of y'all who won't have as easy a time.

Speaking of, this is the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe official website, with an easy DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE DONATION FUND option (top right corner, PayPal).

Indian Country (Today Media Network) also has a collection about How to Give, and to Give Thanks, to Standing Rock.
monanotlisa: somewhat self-explanatory... (muffins!!)
Sally is re-arranging our (varied and vast) sugar cabinet, and yours truly has once more cheese-muffin'd:

Recipe's here. Don't worry about modifying it; it always works.

So. Don't watch The Handmaiden with your father. Or your mother. Or, frankly, most folks you're related to. But do watch it; it's an amazing movie. And if you don't mind sex on the silver screen*, go see it in a theater, then drink wine and discuss the plot; it's what [personal profile] lierdumoa and I did with a good friend of mine plus her boyfriend in San Francisco yesterday.

* I do, actually, mostly because there are too many other people around for what feels intimate to me, but mine was a nice little queer group that grounded me.

The Handmaiden (2016) - no plot spoilers; CONTENT NOTES at the end )

Title probably a bit too meta for what's essentially just porn. Follows Supergirl 2x06 "Changing" and will be obsolete five minutes after posting. But so it goes.
monanotlisa: Tamsin! Rooftop! With weapons! :D (tamsin! - lost girl)
Ooh, it's an option of political activism that doesn't require me to talk on the phone to people! BOOST:

Speaker Paul Ryan's Affordable Care Act poll is back up, now at a different phone number: 202-225-0600.

(Stolen from my buddy [personal profile] 30toseoul, details here at [personal profile] runpunkrun.)

As you can see, it's not really that I'm smart and an activist; I'm just friends with people who are. For your readification:

You may or may not know that Obama, on his farewell tour, was in Germany on Thursday and Friday.

PS: I will tag all my US Politics posts as such so, should your mental health require it, you can sort them out (Dreamwidth has tag filtering).
monanotlisa: lydia with a WTF look on her face, and said caption (fresh hell - southland)
[personal profile] wendelah1 has put together a post about abortion rights in the US: how they have already been eroded and what we can do to help.
monanotlisa: Close-up of Dr. Jemma Simmons in glasses, looking anxious (jemma simmons - aos)
1. [personal profile] selenak reviews iZombie Season One in her blog, and I agree whole-heartedly. It's a cool little show, well worth watching if you are a fan of the likes of Veronica Mars, Buffy, Lost Girl, or Wynonna Earp.

2. I know you must be rolling your eyes, but Autostraddle has been writing these beautiful, make-you-cry-and-nod reviews of Supergirl under this tag. The whole Queer!Alex storyline hits me in the gut like nothing I've seen on television before, too (and my coming out in real life was a lot softer than that -- but then again, I am a softer person myself).

3. When [personal profile] lierdumoa poked me for the shows I'm watching right now, over ice-cream and port, I realized I'm not watching much, not even shows I love (Elementary, Brooklyn Nine-Nine I haven't kickstarted yet for the new season). Of all the things, I am watching Agents of SHIELD. Turns out I really like Robbie Reyes (and I never usually like male characters with beards). I'm vaguely perplexed there's not much fanfiction for Robbie and Daisy (who btw may be a little emo, but still enjoyable this season -- the key scenes she had with Simmons were fantastic).
monanotlisa: Allison Argent's face w/ her bowstring in front of her, drawn. (allison argent - teen wolf)
[personal profile] lierdumoa just left; we talked about plenty of other things but, of course, also the result of this US election.

I've now given to Planned Parenthood in "honor" of Mike Pence; I have set up a recurring donation to the American Civil Liberties Union; the National Immigration Law Center received another sum of money from me. It partially means I'm low on spoons and partially that I'm a lover not a fighter, but -- it does mean something. If only that I'm not feeling quite so helpless right now.

Also, this site is A+mazing. She and I were alerted to it because my housemate started cackling in her armchair out in the living room. Trust me. You want to click the link.

Just one note from yesterday's board game night at my house, where anonsally & I spent the evening with a bunch of delightfully nerdy boys eating pizza, drinking, and playing: Two of them had protested the day before -- one, soft-spoken and long-haired and sweet, here in San Francisco; the other in New York with his little daughter on his shoulders, the little one taking a long, long video of the NYC protests, enthusiastic and intent both.

This kid is growing up watching how many people are standing up, growing into standing up, and it gave me one of the first flickers of hope.

This is my first post; it's a reminder to myself and a baseline for the second post.

Five good things )
