Anthony Stewart Head to replace Pierce Brosnan as Chiron in Sea of Monsters

I figured some of the adult leads were going to get recast, given that SoM probably has a smaller budget than TLT and didn't do that well at the box office, but I don't care about this one because it's Giles as a centaur guys.

Now all we need is Eliza Dushku as Circe or something and we'll have the Joss Whedon Collection nearly complete.

What the fuck, livejournal.

Who thought this new comment layout was a good idea? Why do you have to fix things that ARE NOT BROKEN?

Sooooo one of the Stargate Atlantis books I own is out of print and selling on Amazon for about $50 used. I feel like I just won the Internet lottery or something, even thought I'm probably going to lowball the hell out of it because I just want it to sell.

Astronomers have decided to change the zodiac signs. I am now a Taurus, apparently.

This is bullshit. Gemini for life. And what is this nonsense about Ophiuchus? I am so confused.

This went from, "OMG COOL," to "OMG CREEPY" in about 30 seconds.



And my mother thought my lone Deathly Hallows cut-out was obsessive...

Since I'm having trouble writing fic in traditional form, I'm going to try a little bit of alternative storytelling.

All the blame for this lies on [livejournal.com profile] from_elysium's shoulders, as when I asked her to prompt me with something, she wanted long distance Percy/Annabeth with letters. Hopefully I'll be able to update it every few days, since graphics are a bit lower maintenance than suffering over a paragraph of writing.

In case you were wondering, this is how I feel about LJ's new decision to add Twitter and Facebook crossposting options to entries and comments:

Photobucket

and

Photobucket

If I wanted to share my dirty PWP with my RL friends and relatives, I would already be doing it, LJ. Now, where did I put my DreamWidth password...

From this month's Elle magazine: They Like It Like That: Why Every Woman is Desirable

This is probably just about the most skeevy thing I've read in a looooong time. It's like a cross between a shitty Harlequin and a horror novel, emphasis on the horror. Ugh.

I've been plagiarized. In Harry Potter fandom, of the all places I haven't been in the last four years.

I got an email from someone this morning pointing me in the direction of this Rose/Scorpius fic and said the first couple of lines were similar to my James/Lily fic The Incident in the Library. So I checked it out, and at first I was like, "Oh, it's just the first line, huh? Well, I'm no aja, so I'm going to let it slide," but then I read it again and now I'm kind of pissed.
Here's the opening paragraphs to both stories )

The stories themselves are completely different from each other otherwise, so it's just the opening couple paragraphs that have been stolen.

I'll repeat this from what I said in my last post on plagiarism: I completely don't understand the people who do it, especially college students who should KNOW BETTER BY NOW (which this author is, according to her FFnet profile). If you'll allow me to be an arrogant brat for a moment, it's not like my fic is some obscure little piece in the monster that is HP fandom. It's a fairly well-known and popular fic in the Lily/James section for a one-shot. Like I said before, someone always finds out when you plagiarize...especially if you plagiarize from something popular.

The mean-spirited bitch in me wants to stir whatever Harry Potter fangirls I have left, report this fic to the FFnet mods and get it yanked without warning, while my more rational, "Let's not end up on Fandom Wank, shall we?" side believes I should at least send a PM to her first to let her know her I'm reporting her. Or is that still being too bitchy to report her without giving her a chance to change her fic? I'm risking creating a wank storm anyway because her fic is a fairly popular Rose/Scorpius one-shot, and it getting yanked will probably piss someone off.

Has anyone out there been plagiarized, and if so, what did you do about it? I'm not going to make a move until after I get off work, so you have plenty of time to respond.

The reason this isn't f-locked? When you're on the receiving end of plagiarism, it's not something you should hide and it's something everyone else in whatever fandom should be aware of. It's all about accountability, and when you've done something wrong, you need to own up to it and face the consequences. Or at least be publicly shamed for it.

And, no, this is not a plea for people to go out and harass this author. Not like I think any of my f-list would do that sort of thing.

HOLY....

The sad thing is that I was totally joking about someone else ~important~ dying on Twitter this morning. I'M AN AGENT OF DEATH.
