Timestamp Fic Meme! \o/

Stolen from the wonderful argylepiratewd!

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started (or during the story if there's a good break), and I'll write you however many words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

Fics are here!


SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by darkspirited1at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by rachelmanijaentitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)


Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.


Anything To Make A Quick Buck

>>>>SIGN HERE! SIGN HERE!<<<< Update!  The app is gone!!!!

The picture associated with this pathetic excuse for an app is oddly striking, and it offends me almost as much as the bogus questions it asks. We see a woman, assumed to be a mother, staring solemnly into space, as if she was uncertain about her future. Exactly what is she so worried about? Whether or not her son is gay.

This Android application asks twenty questions regarding 'your son' (I guess they don't care if your daughter is gay). These questions range from "Does he like divas? (Madonna, Britney Spears)" to "Does he like football?" to "Does he have a complicated relationship with his father" to, my favorite, "Before he was born, did you wish for a girl?".

If you complete this survey, which is obviously targeting bigots, the results are even worse.

A writer on GadgetBox gave two possible results:

Your son is a normal young man: modern and concerned about taking care of himself assuming some feminine habits while maintaing his attraction to girls. However, he may have already had some homosexual experiences with his best friend. These things happen. It is more and more usual in these times to maximize pleasures without taboo.

And another:

Don't worry, your son is not gay. Get ready to become a mother-in-law! You'll soon have to be accepted by your future daughter-in-law. There's a great chance that you'll become a grandmother with all the pleasures that this brings.

So, mothers should worry if their son is gay, being straight is 'normal', and not only can this app tell if your son is gay, but it can also tell you when you'll be having grandchildren!

Oh, spare me.

As AllOut put it: We can't know whether this app is meant to be serious or just a joke, but circulating these ideas far and wide is dangerous.  If it's serious, the app is belittling and misleading.  If it's a joke, it's made at the expense of millions of kids trying to just be who they are - whether or not he "reads the sports page" or "takes a long time to do his hair".

Here's a better idea, moms: if you're so paranoid about your son's sexual orientation, ask him about it yourself, at least indirectly, and do it without the ridiculous feminine stereotypes!!!

Fifty-thousand people are needed to sign AllOut's petition before they attempt to tell Android (who has supported LGBT before) to pull the plug on this app. About thiry-five thousand have already signed, including me. Take five seconds out of your day if you can, and PLEASE SIGN. <<<The app has since been removed. Thanks to all those who signed.

I send my wishes from the other side of the grave, and I'll be blasting Queen's greatest hits today in his memory. :)

I'm Telling This Storm Off, Yo.

Not-So Dear Irene,

Go away.

Turn around. Stop killing people. Stop destroying stuff. Find something in the world to be happy about.

Not-so-much love,

goldengeminian.

P.S. -

I send my condolences to all those who are affected. Irene hasn't hit us yet.

Allll Byyyy Myyyyseeeeelf...

So, it looks like I'm moderating Lambski Big Bang myself now. I have no idea where mewithoutaname is.

If you find her, please bring her back. Seriously, I'll pay a ransom if I have to. I'm just really, really hoping wherever she is she's doing just fine and will find her way back to the Internet very soon.

Remember those bogus reports about the deaths of Will Smith, President Obama, and Hugh Hefner? 

I saw the headline BREAKING: Amy Winehouse reported to have passed away and I figured that this was another false report; that soon, like all the others, Amy would reappear alive and well (or, as well as she can possibly be) and everything would be forgotten.

But it's real.

Before, I hadn't really 'discovered' Amy's music. After today, I decided to listen to her discography, and I'm blown away. What a loss.

Sure, a few of her songs aren't my cup of tea, but at least eighty percent of them are just amazing.

I do have a weird addition to this tragic tale, though. I remember watching a TV special about the 27 club. Someone said, "Amy Winehouse better watch out; she's turning 27 real soon."

Stupid jinx.

Anyway, rest in peace, Amy. Unfortunately, I didn't get to appreciate your genius while you were alive. :(
