meltingpenguins: Behind cut for semi-NSFW Read More Well, I’ve never actually read much Ponder fic…but I can tell you that he’s one of the most slashed characters out there. With Adrian/Drongo, mostly, through I’ve seen Ponder/HEX before, too. Where have you tried searching so far? Semi-unrelated but awesome: Ponder has an old Angelfire fansite that may or may not...

…and I wondered something. What do you picture when you hear the lines: Picture yourself on a train in a station With plasticine porters With looking-glass ties Because I’ve always thought it meant the railroad ties were mirrors, but this time I suddenly realized it could also mean the porters’ neckties? Not that it matters either way, really—this is “Lucy In...
okay, I think I’ve figured out the hair now I’m onto that grad school research I was gonna do anybody out there know of a good anatomy PhD program?
This is a sock garters appreciation post
oakhavens: hot damn
Things I could be doing right now: setting up my new external hard drive researching graduate schools packing for next term Things I am doing right now listening to “Rambling Rover” on repeat sketching Stratford’s* hair from every possible angle swearing that I will never design another character who parts their hair that far off-center ever again *Yes, from Snuff. ...
meltingpenguins: I’d really love to know the canonical aftermaths of Unseen Academicals.. (Cut for spoilers) Read More I think that’s rather a cynical interpretation of the book, myself….Juliet can still be a model even if people know she’s human (Stronginthearm of “Burleigh &” is really human, too!), Trev says he’s going to learn proper football (and...

Corporal Ping may be not be much fun to hang around, but his iTunes-function namesake is ten times more annoying.
progress is being made
Mom says she’ll buy me OS X Lion, since it’d probably be a good thing to keep my computer up-to-date anyway. Gonna need to back up all my files first, so we’re also looking into external hard drives/internet backup services. …anyone know a good program/service for backing up all the data on a relatively recent Leopard MacBook Pro?
I got Sims 3 Pets for Christmas, so I installed it all nice and careful with my mods and CC folders removed, and when I went in to test it out…crash. :( It happens every time I try to open the Create-A-Horse tab, and some preliminary internet research shows that there’s a lot of other people experiencing it, and it happense every time you see a horse in the game ever. Does anybody...

friendlytroll asked: Headcannon- vis a *vis* the future half-goblin children of Nobby nobs. (Aka: Well the linage of Ahnk Morpork is going to get really interesting from here on out no matter what you believe.)
kfoxthegreat asked: Headcanons for Sam Vimes?
Ask me about my headcanons
Discworld or Firefly or Doctor Who or whatever, I don’t care. If it’s something I’ve never considered and I don’t have a real answer, then I’ll make up something that’s a logical(-ish) conclusion of the headcanon I do have. (doing this on dA too, FYI)

meltingpenguins: rawdoncrawley: kriem: nobody ships your pairing nobody not even fedex what’s that elissa? you ship rosie/dr. lawn? oh fuck off already Meh, I heard the same about Susan/Ponder. What sort of argument is ‘your ship sucks as it ain’t canonical’ anyway? BOTH OF THOSE SHIPS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING and I would never have thought of them on my own. Canon is great, but...
An Irrational Irritation
I cannot handle it when authors have characters wear bustles when bustles are not historically/fashionably appropriate. It happened in The Edinburgh Dead which I finished yesterday (set in 1828, but Mrs Big Bad wears one at a party anyway) and it also happens (sort of) in Snuff—all the other description, and thematic appropriateness (read: the Bennett Gordon sisters) make it sound like the...
You know what would be cool?
If iTunes had a “wishlist” function, where you could store a list of all the songs you plan on buying once you find the money to do so.
I clicked that and all I got was this lousy shirt:... →

Random thoughts on Discworld
meltingpenguins: Careful, it’s rather a bit of a rant. Read More I mostly liked UA, but I do see what you mean. It felt strange to have all the football-playing and its attendant culture come out of nowhere, and while I get why Pterry wanted to introduce orcs, that definitely felt a little…left-field to me. I think I’d have been okay with it if that had got a little more...
