My fanfiction and recommendations pages :-)

Given the fact that Yahoo/Geocities, in their infinite wisdom (*choke*, *splutter*, *cough*), have elected to delete all free websites from their webhosting service, I am posting the content of my two websites to my livejournal.

He tells her that not all knights carry two swords – he says it’s personal choice, one to be weighed between the advantages of having a second sword as backup should the first be taken from you, and the risk that someone might steal the second sword and use it against you. “Why do you ask, my lady?” he asks, raising an eyebrow. “Mother has two swords, Ser,” she says softly, “the one she wears on her hip, and the one she keeps in her room.” His face clouds then, but he quickly recovers. “Ah, my lady, that is something different."

Star Trek: Reboot Universe/Alternate Original Series


  • 75% Compatibility, by LenahCC. Rated R (Spock/Nyota Uhura). Recommended by Bea.
    Author's summary: Further observation had led him to conclude that Cadet Uhura held the very act and institution of learning with reverence. Individuals who respected knowledge correlated to a capability for higher thinking—logic. Given all observable factors, he gauged their work style compatibility to be fair at 75%.

Links to my ontd_p posts

So, I've posted quite a bit to ontd_political in the past few months/years. I thought I'd just link to those (many, LOL) posts here. (A friend of mine has been having me send her the links, so I thought I'd post them here, too.)

Collapse )
I try to keep abreast of what's going on around the world (i.e. I also try to read from many sources) and that's pretty much where I get ideas for these posts. There are some really important things going on that we often don't hear about that much.

PS: Livejournal's editor is such CRAP! I posted a single article about a hashtag trending in the UK (i.e. see post number 80) and this caused livejournal to assume I wanted to add that as a tag to this post for some unfathomable reason. And then it refused to let me remove it, having it pop up again and again after I deleted the stupid tag. ARGH!

tl;dr: I deleted the hashtag mark from the link to post number 80 because livejournal can really be total crap and using the actual number sign can lead to bad things.
