Found via [personal profile] justhuman: [personal profile] rosefox shows the steps for getting it to go away with uBlock Origin.

*The full English translation of the Russian version of the new TOS.

*If you make the transition and change your username, there’s always this post at [community profile] 2017revival: Want to find an old LJ friend? Linking DW and LJ identities. [community profile] lj_refugees is another place to go if you just joined, as is [community profile] getting_started.

*How to move to Dreamwidth and like it.

*From [personal profile] rahirah: How to redirect comments on a crosspost.

*I was trying to determine if I should import anything I was maintainer of long ago. [livejournal.com profile] big_damn_quests is seriously long since dead. Would anyone be averse to me importing it on over to Dreamwidth, just for archival purposes? It’s been dead for 10 years as of this year, and I’ve moved away from the Firefly fandom.

*I just completed saving all the inactive icons in the [livejournal.com profile] x_meggan journal. Over 70 of those.

*Tomorrow I’ll get started on slowly adding what was in Livejournal’s scrapbook to Dreamwidth’s service, and then slowly go through and try to correct broken links as I delete them from the Livejournal side.

*Long ago, I roleplayed Willow from Buffy, under the name [livejournal.com profile] strega_willow. I’ve just saved all the inactive icons there, and I’m thinking of importing it over to Dreamwidth, too. That will only happen if I decide any of it’s worth keeping after I go through and read it. If it isn't, then I'll delete that journal.

*If I haven’t added someone on the Dreamwidth side yet, please let me know in the comments and I will do it.

Edit: As of 1:40 PM, I finished going through the entirety of Scrapbook, and deleted anything I would never need again. It was time for cleaning out the assorted junk that had accumulated anyway. As stated earlier, whatever is left will be hosted on Dreamwidth soon.

Here's another RPG meme that's been floating around:

You post a "top five" topic, list, category, etc. for one of my characters, such as "five tattoos Jane would get" or "five reasons Bob recycles." Then I'll reply with the answers to all your top 5 ideas. Serious or fun!

A meme, taken from a lot of people on my Insanejournal friends list:
You give me any character or characters that I have played (past or present) and I will give you 3-5 alternate Played-Bys for the character. I might even explain the choice(s).

Since I’m only currently playing Meggan Szardos, I’ll go ahead and give four alternate PB’s for her.

My selections in order of last name are:
Candice Accola
Jessica Marais
Georgia Moffett
Jessy Schram

X-PROJECT: AN X-MEN MOVIEVERSE RPG

Top Ten Reasons for Joining XP


1) We won't shut down five minutes after you've been accepted. Begun in May 2003, X-Project is one of the longest-lived RPGs on Livejournal and we're still going strong.

2) No character too obscure or too popular! Check out our active characters and our list of socks available for applications for an idea.

3) We're the best of both worlds. X-Project combines the wackiness of forty years of comics canon with the modern realism of the movies to create a gameverse with a life of its own, where the science (and magic) makes sense and where X3 and X-Men Origins: Wolverine don't exist.

4) We have something for everyone. With four teams, a disaster relief program, college politics and an NGO, plus a whole world to play in, there's something of interest, no matter what your preferred genre.

5) You can: go into space; destroy a city; defeat Murderworld; be the last man standing; or destabilise a country. Trust us; if you can dream it up, it can be a plot.

6) Everyone knows your name. With a small and friendly playerbase and only two character per player, you'll never be lost in the crowd. Also, we have players scattered over five continents, so there's always someone online!

7) You can come back from evil and still have friends. Join those who have been possessed, gone evil or succumbed to the power of evil genetics!

8 )You too will know the power of the DOOMTHREAD! With email discussions that have spawned their very own nickname, you can procrastinate your work/school/chores/etc indefinitely.

9) We have the pretties! Check out the fanart! Lots of opportunity to play with Photoshop!

10) We're all as weird as you are. 'Nuff said. :)

Check out the Wiki and the advertising community to see what's available. Readers are highly encouraged! If you're looking for X-Men based entertainment, X-Project welcomes you to read along and enjoy the ride!

A fourth season has been confirmed for Being Human.

The Russian trailer for X-Men: First Class includes a bit of footage not previously seen in the English version. Read the comments at Blastr, since someone translated the text and dialogue into English. You get to see Magneto in his helmet. The other difference is there’s music in place of the JFK speech.

The idea of a Sandman series is dead again.

The preview for Red Nose Day includes a short clip of the Doctor Who segment.

10 Coolest Time Machines In The Space-Time Continuum. Yes, the Delorean and TARDIS are included.

And now, a couple of RPG related memes that I want to do--taken from racetrack and loveologist, over on Insanejournal:

Give me one of your characters and one of mine, and I will give you their top three Texts From Last Night.

and

Name one of my characters and one of yours. I'll show you three icons displaying expressions that my character frequently makes when interacting with yours, and explain why.

Or in this case, as I only have the one character: Give me yours, and I’ll do that. Just let me know which meme (or if it’s both) it’s for when you comment. Crossing my fingers that the comments come to me now, now that I've switched notifications to Gmail.

Just contributing to the spread of a few RPG type memes that have been floating around my friends list, since they were piling up.

First one could work for either RPG's or fanfic:
Pick a character and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

Second one looks like fun:

1. Name one of my RP characters and one of yours (or one of someone else's if you really want).
2. Name a destination, anywhere in the known or created universes.
3. I'll write you my character's postcard to the other, from that destination.


Third One: Tell me things I don't know about my characters.

Fourth One: Pick one of my characters and I will tell you...
→ my favorite scene or bit of interaction concerning this character to date
→ the last thing they did "off screen"
→ what their last words would be if they died tomorrow
→ what the next thing I'm doing for them is (narrative, post, shelving, whatever


With that last meme, I'm pretty sure the last thing Meggan did off-screen was do some sort of a little dance/jig when nobody was looking, due to finally getting her driver's license. Seems like the sort of thing she would do.

I don't know what her last words would be--it would depend on how or why she was being killed. Suddenly being stabbed through the chest merits an "Urk!" and/or gasp of agony. Slow, lingering death would be something else altogether.

Favorite scene to date is either something dark from Revenant, but I can't decide what--or Meggan discovering the joys of the Waffle House and the ensuing (and utterly bizarre) conversation with Kevin there. There may be something else that I'm forgetting at the moment.

Next thing for her: I guess the log between Molly and Meggan that's currently underway. It's that, or her eventually discovering the wonders of The Golden Girls thanks to Wade. She will learn more about menopause than she ever wanted to.

Pretty much the only thing that has been standing in the way of getting The Hobbit made is one thing: money. MGM is bankrupt. However, now comes the news that Warner Bros. has agreed to foot the bill for the movies. $500 million for both Hobbit movies, since it’s going to be split in two parts. That’s astounding. Meanwhile, Andy Serkis and Ian McKellen are officially confirmed to be signed on for the movie.

The Wonder Woman tv show that was going to be written by David E. Kelly?

Gail Simone could end up writing the comic of Buffy Season 9. The job is hers if she agrees to it.

The Dark Knight Rises will be filming in Detroit—and Nolan says again that it will not be in 3D. Which makes me like him even more.

C. Thomas Howell has signed on to the Spider-Man movie. He will play someone named Ray.

Someone made their wedding cake one of the Ghostbusters using their proton packs against the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, on top of Dana’s building. And it’s glow-in-the-dark.

I redid the Character Expression Meme that I posted before, because I just wanted to be able to fill it up entirely, with the icons that I both use, and would use if I could. So I uploaded the latter to the LJ Scrapbook to get that to work, and made a tag there for the person that made each one. It’s that, and I just didn’t want to see the thing remain unfinished.

I’ve put the Character Expression Meme beneath the cut, due to the length of it. )

On another Meggan-related note, I just realized that I’ll be having the poor thing doing a driving test in February. So...yes. Her driving test will be filled with snow and ice and sleet, as she navigates the streets of New York. And she’ll probably attempt to practice driving in a bit of that, unless someone talks her into doing March instead. When things should thaw in New York, provided there are no apocalyptic scenarios.

I also realized she would probably be first in line to the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie in May—whatever that one is called—given her love of all things pirate related. This means extensive research of the Wikipedia pages is in store for me.

ETA: Please bear with me, while I try to find and remove the small scrap of code that is centering the bottom half of this post.

ETA 2: Fixed!

The first episode of season 4 of Torchwood is set to air July 1, 2011. The site of Torchwood’s base of operations is Bruce Willis’ home in Malibu. That…seems incredibly strange to me. If he accidentally wandered through in the background, it would be even stranger.

Sherlock commences the filming of season 2 in May.

The first footage for Syfy’s Neverland was released. I didn’t care for what I saw of Tin Man. From what I’ve managed to catch of Alice, I like it—although, that might mostly be because of Matt Frewer, since I thought he was great as the White Knight. I wasn’t planning to bother with Neverland—but since Anna Friel and Bob Hoskins are in it, I might watch a few minutes of it.

I just stumbled across a lot (212 to be exact) of Carey Mulligan icons that are perfect for Meggan’s character. So I’m basically hoarding icons now, until such a time as I’m able to add more to that journal. And is it bad that I went ‘finally--a couple icons where she’s bleeding’? Just in case there ever came a time when those were needed in the game.

There’s also a really plaintive/devastated looking one toward the end that’s perfect for Meggan getting horrible news of some sort—third to last one where she’s wearing a blue shirt.

The new school year has begun and X-Project is in need of students aged 14-17! There are a number of previously played socks and NPCs available and, while the current preference is for those formerly played/socked characters to be apped, the game would also welcome any new youngsters who who might arrive at Xavier's.

Plenty of gaming opportunities exist, from the New Mutants training team to groups such as the Red Cross initiative Red X, the NGO Elpis and the mutant-human coexistence group HeliX. Or there are just the wacky hijinks that ensue when you toss a group of super-powered teenagers into a mansion which just so happens to house a world class superhero team in its basement.

X-Project is an X-Men movieverse RPG on Livejournal. Set after X2, the game has been running since May 5, 2003 and uses a combination of in-character journals and email/IM logs. Whatever you might be looking for, be it classic superhero adventures, high school drama, dark and gritty spy games or interpersonal relationships, X-Project has it all. Again, the game would prefer applicants to consider available NPCs and socks, but applications for new/previously unplayed characters will be accepted. To help give you an idea of each character's history, a series of "cards" for each available character/NPC is available and, from there, applicants can easily reach the character's wiki page.

As of this moment, the Yuletide fanfic word count is 3143 words. I'm still adding things to the end and making corrections here and there, but I'm nearly finished.

For a short break, here's an RPG related meme taken from a few people on my IJ friends list:

Give me a character I've played and a target age, and I'll find a PB to age them up or down accordingly.

10 Things Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four Taught Us.

From Comic Alliance: 10 Completely Insane Superhero Costumes...For Your Dog. It’s the commentary about the poor dogs that makes the article worth it.

In other news, because I managed to stumble across someone (dedicated to the pairing of John and Marlena) that uploaded the entire storyline (and Aremid and one or two other chunks) to Youtube, I’ve been having a Marlena Possessed By The Devil Marathon—just in time for Halloween, I guess. Backwards, beginning with the fight in the morgue, and basically skipping around. From what I can tell, two episodes are missing. The bit where Father Francis was briefly possessed—which Mom also remembers, so I know it happened. We both remember that he had yellow eyes at that moment. And the episode directly after the possession ended. Which was a recap of the whole mess, with John relating all the events to someone and endless flashbacks—I don’t remember who it was he was talking to, though. That episode is how I figured out what was going on back in 1995, since I came in toward the end of it all.

I had to laugh at one commercial that was accidentally included—for the O.J. Simpson trial. “Don’t worry, your soaps will be back very soon! This won’t last long!” Not so much. They were gone for months.

And now, a meme—taken from [personal profile] lafemmedarla:

Go through all your role play characters. Pick out your favourite icon. List it. Explain why.

Since I only have Meggan, this won’t take too long. It’s a tie between this one, and this one, because something about them just seems to capture her personality rather nicely.

We also highly encourage readers - if you're looking for X-Men based entertainment, X-Project welcomes you to read along and enjoy the ride!

X-PROJECT: AN X-MEN MOVIEVERSE RPG

Name: LEYU YOSHIDA

Date of Birth: 1995

Powers: Absorption of solar radiation and conversion to plasma.

Status: NEW MUTANT - AVAILABLE FOR APPLICATIONS.

The new school year has started and X-Project needs students, ages 14-17! We have a number of previously played socks and NPCs available or we'd welcome new youngsters to begin at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.



Plenty of gaming opportunities exist, from the New Mutants training team to groups such as the Red Cross initiative Red X. NGO, Elpis and the mutant-human coexistence group HeliX. Or there's just the wacky hijinks that happen when you have a house full of super-powered teenagers living with a superhero team in the basement.



X-Project is an X-Men movieverse RPG on Livejournal. Set after X2, we've been running since May 5, 2003 and use a combination of in-character journals and email/IM logs. Be it classic superhero adventures, high school drama, dark and gritty spy games or interpersonal relationships, X-Project caters to everyone.

X-Project is currently focusing our advertising towards filling some of our unplayed characters and available NPCs.

From Cracked: 6 Baffling Flaws In Famous Sci-Fi Technology. The DeLorean in Back to the Future, the Enterprise, and the Batwing are included on the list.

Saturday is Read Comics In Public Day.

The Doctor Who tv movie is finally getting an American DVD release.

There’s going to be a Doctor Who Secret Santa over at [profile] dwsanta. You can sign up here.

Someone put the TARDIS on top of MIT.

[community profile] x_project related: I’m thinking that Meggan would end up doing the test for her learner’s permit on Friday--so if she passes, she would then have the weekend to celebrate. That, and getting it out of the way for her before school starts up again, so that all she needs to worry about on that front is learning to actually drive. I actually dug through New York's DMV site, and decided which questions (out of 20) she would most likely get wrong.

6 Things Bryan Singer Just Revealed About X-Men: First Class. Basically, while it’s set in the 60’s, we won’t see the actual first class of X-Men.

I was thinking of changing the picture on Meggan’s page of the Wiki. That’s mostly because I stumbled across this as I was looking through various sites.

Also being considered are this one, (more of a smile than the one I used for the Wiki) or this one.

If I could find the exact screencap this originates from, it might be an option, too. I know it’s during Blink. I’ve hunted through various screencap sites, but I can’t find a match for it. It looks like it might be from the end of the episode, but I’m not sure. From what I can tell, the clothes aren't right for that.

10 Superhero Buddy Movies We’d Love To See. Kitty Pryde and Wolverine made the list, but not Booster Gold and Beetle Beetle. Quite a few suggested the latter in the comments.

A certain infamous church wants to protest ComicCon. Why? Idol Worship. They believe geeks shouldn’t worship the false idols of comics. Mom had the fantastic idea to turn the ones dressed as Klingons loose on them. Things would be settled rather quickly. That, or turn the scariest of the fans in other fandoms loose on them.

Found this meme on various places on my friends list, and finally decided to post it. As I currently only play Meggan, I’ll answer all the questions with her in mind. The numbering was off (and one question repeated) but I think I’ve managed to fix that, as well as removing the duplicate question.

Pick one of my characters and I'll answer the following questions about him or her.

Since this is so long, I’m putting the 14 questions and their answers beneath the cut. )
