Tossed and turned and got very little sleep last night. Apocalyptic dreams: giant cyclones whirling into Seattle, straight out of the previews for The Day After Tomorrow, followed by nuclear strikes. At one point I found shelter with other refugees in some kind of concrete tunnel that was piled with something, not sure what. Toilet seats, maybe.

LJ seems very quiet lately. I resist the impulse to quote my spam headers to the world or describe to you what's on my desk.

Last night in my head I cast Ving Rhames as an ex-NFL football player and bundled Spike off into his porny care.

Bored now.

I had a choppy night's sleep too, because I was so upset by the Iraq war thing and my general descent-into-fascism fears. I'm a champion worrier.

I went and looked at the pictures--I'd read the article you linked to already, but somehow I missed them until you pointed out the gallery. Very fucking disturbing. Has anyone talked yet about any gender-related issues surrounding this issue? Because the involvement and culpability of women in this--I just can't wrap my mind around it. I know it's not really so much that we're closing the gender gap in terms of torture so much as this just peels back the lid a little on a female human nature that has existed for centuries, if given the chance to exercise itself. Still.

I haven't really been looking for anything else on this beyond the coverage in the NY Times and references to it on the BBC and Guardian feeds I have on my friends list. But for me, there's an added layer of revoltingness to this due to the involvement of women.

Hey there. This is completely off-topic. I lurk here, but yesterday I posted in rubywisp's journal (where I also mostly lurk) using this icon, and she insisted that you must see it, since it was you who used the phrase in reference to the ficathon. :)

And it is *fabulous*! They should just turn their heads and kiss each other.

They just did, don't you know. That's why Spike's hair is all poofy; Xander's a little grabby when he's horny.

*commiserates with you on the apocalyptic dreams* I get those. A lot. I fucking hate it.

Ahem, for your Tuesday pleasure, janedavitt, she of the Spike and Dilbert slash, kindly pointed me to more drabbles of slashly goodness ... see, I've been reading too much Buffy POV. Anyhow, here they are.

From Jane:

There's more out there than you'd think ;-)

I did this one for a friend

and this is sort of a sequel.
And there's a list here on Swmbo's LJ

Hee. Herding cats. I've actually had a *lot* of dreams about cats myself. They're always kind of odd and disturbing. As are cats themselves, as races of alien beings go, so that makes sense.

I posted some due South porn; perhaps that will entertain you? :-)

Dear god. Why did I read that in my cubicle? Wicked, naughty Zoot Kass. That was amaaaaazing! Jesus.

That is very different in tone and style somehow than most BtVS stories (or fan-fiction in general), in a way I can't quite put my finger on--and very cool. Are you saving the posts in your memories?
automatedalice_ on May 5th, 2004 12:20 pm (UTC)
not yet, but i can. i'm expecting another update before the end of this week, so...

& i think the tone is pretty regular for me. i've slashed spike with billy idol (in a purely R-rated way) & i go crazy with the spuffy.

I got lynched last night. And later, I was also eminem.
I had fucked up dreams last night, too. Long, violent, story-driven, transmogrifying dreams. See my journal for the disturbing details.

Oh my god, that is the most brilliant dream ever! If it weren't friends-locked, I'd pimp it to the world!

Evil, angry lemurs...

You would pimp me?!

I feel an unlockin' coming on!

(It was open most of yesterday, but I suddenly got paranoid and locked it. I'll undo it.)
