i can't find it now, but yesterday, at the top of a list of veronica mars fic recs, was a rec for kovsky's law and order/veronica mars crossover
. and i can't remember the exact words, but the rec was like, "for an author who doesn't like veronica mars, they have a great logan voice" and, "i don't know who this alex person is" and i wish i could find the rec list because OMG i laughed and laughed. you got recced, kovsky!
in other reccing news, i got recced as an aside in the leelaurabsg (whatever it's called) comm. because it's a kara/lee fic with lee/roslin undertones. now, before you go acting all shocked, i put those undertones in intentionally. because as much as lee/roslin freaks me out, the fact of the matter, lee thinks roslin is fabulous. i don't believe he's in love with her, and there will not be any lee + roslin sexing, but he respects her, he admires her, and if he had a couple of years, he could probably (platonically) love her. i think she'll die before he has a chance to (platonically) love her, but still.
before i end this section, i'd like to remind everyone about the hot hot (one true) pilot sexing that is kara and lee.
He pushes her against the wall. "We can't," she gasps as he trails a hand down her side and under her tanks.
"That's funny," he snarls, and bites at her neck, "I didn't think you were the type to say 'no,' Kara."
She scratches him until he bleeds, and fraks him hard until he hurts, until all he can feel is the pain caused by Kara.
It's not enough. It will never be enough.
He touches her again.
(okay, wow, that was totally not what i was aiming to write at all but WHATEVER THEY ARE STILL HOT)
okay. it's the twenty sixth century. everyone's in space, and the main languages are english and chinese.chinese: simplified or traditional?
with the move towards the use of simplified characters in various locations (for example, when learning chinese as a second language in australia one learns simplified but is expected to know traditional), there are arguments to be made that chinese will be written simplified in five hundred years. however, i can't remember if, on the mainland, it is simplifed or traditional being taught. i always get that mixed up. i think it's simplified in china and traditional in taiwan. anyway, my brief argument is that if simplified is being used in china, then surely that's what will get exported as the world departs from earth.
this question inspired by this post
: they're pretty enough but let's face it, are people really going to waste time writing traditional when they don't have to? (also, omg, some of them don't make sense! but that's another story for another time. and ignore my icon in which i use the wrong 'or' and haven't had a chance to make a new one)
i haven't seen the firefly movie yet, and it feels like everyone else in the whole world has. i am very jealous.
One day I'll finish this story:
Lois kisses her cheek. "Are you sure we can't drop you home?"
"No," says Chloe, and grins. "I like walking. Keeps me young."
Lois laughs, and squeezes her hand. "Okay," she says.
"Chloe," says Clark in farewell, and it is the first time he has said her name all night.
As Clark and Lois round the corner in the distance looking for their car - Clark and Lois are young, fresh, impetuous, and don't frequent establishments with valets - a limo pulls up beside her. The door opens before it comes to a complete stop, and Chloe does not have to look once to know who it is.
"Have fun?" Lex asks, and over his shoulder through the back windscreen she meets Clark's eyes.
Lex turns. "Ah," he says mildly, and waves.
He turns back and moves so she can no longer see Clark.
"Have fun?" he repeats.
"Yeah," she spits. "It was great."
i baked a chocolate cake last night, using a new recipe because i didn't have very much butter. it was a very nice cake.
