The latest attempt to repeal the ACA (which is designed to placate the Freedom Caucus) is now being opposed by some of the more moderate Republicans who were on board with the first attempt. With the House Republican leadership trying to figure out how to proceed next week, here's a target list of representatives who need to be contacted today or Monday to let them know you oppose ACA repeal.

Update on the Russia story from The Guardian:

The December memo alleged that four Trump representatives travelled to Prague in August or September in 2016 for “secret discussions with Kremlin representatives and associated operators/hackers”, about how to pay hackers secretly for penetrating Democratic party computer systems and “contingency plans for covering up operations”.

Between March and September, the December memo alleges, the hackers used botnets and porn traffic to transmit viruses, plant bugs and steal data online from Democratic party leadership. Two of the hackers had been “recruited under duress by the FSB” the memo said. The hackers were paid by the Trump organisation, but were under the control of Vladimir Putin’s presidential administration.

A few years ago, I wrote a big bang story called 'Breathing Underwater', for Dearka/Yzak/Shiho from Gundam SEED/Destiny. At the time, I'd listed a few songs that had been influential to the story and, since I need to finish a few expanded scenes for the story and had it on my mind, I thought I'd also expand the song list a bit and make it into a proper soundtrack. ^_^;

[personal profile] chocolateboxmod posting in [community profile] fandom5k
We are 24 hours away from the deadline! All stories are due at 11:59pm EDT on Saturday 29 April, unless you have an extension approved in advance. What time is that for me?

Shortly after the deadline the collection will close briefly. This is to allow us to manually default people and also to give us time to check the collection to make sure that there are no obvious placeholders. We will reopen the collection once we have done the check, and will let you know when that is done along with any post-deadline pinch hits.

If you're finished and looking for write more, consider a treat! Please also consider treating the pinch
hitters who didn't sign up. If you are one of those pinch hitters, please feel free to leave requests for treats at this post.

Any queries, questions, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us either here or at fandom5kmod@gmail.com!

Good luck!

SPIKE: She wouldn't even kill me. She just left. She didn't even care enough to cut off my head or set me on fire. I mean, is that too much to ask? You know? Some little sign that she cared?
It was that truce with Buffy that did it. Dru said I'd gone soft. Wasn't demon enough for the likes of her. And I told her it didn't mean anything, I was thinking of her the whole time, but she didn't care. So, we got to Brazil, and she was... she was just different. I gave her everything: beautiful jewels, beautiful dresses with beautiful girls in them, but nothing made her happy. And she would fliiirt! I caught her on a park bench, making out with a *chaos* demon! Have you ever seen a chaos demon? They're all slime and antlers. They're disgusting.
She only did it to hurt me. So I said, 'I'm not putting up with this anymore.' And she said, 'Fine!' And I said, 'Yeah, I've got an unlife, you know!' And then she said... she said we could still be friends. (leans over and sobs on Willow's shoulder) God, I'm so unhappy!

It's been a little quiet around here as the Minority President's administration has become the new normal and has stopped blowing up in a big way every other day. Or that's my impression anyway.

I'm still using ResistBot to tell my Congress people that I support Obamacare and that healthcare should be a right. But I'm starting to feel a little stale on that topic, so I'm probably going to start talking about my support for the EPA because I like clean air and clean water.

I was wondering what other issues folks are talking to their Congress people about. What's near and dear to your heart?

cover for Warchild


Warchild by Karin Lowachee is full of a muted homoerotic undertones, which is a good description of my entire love life as a teenager, so it's not surprising that I loved this book. But that's not the only selling point of the novel! It also has spies, alien martial arts, slow burn friendships, revenge, double crosses, and a critique of all the terrifying ways child abuse can fuck someone up, in and out of war.

I expected space battles, Obligatory Female Love Interest, and a testosterone fueled climax where the Good Guy Protag gets verbally fellated by everyone around him. Plus, medals, because for some reason in my head all military space opera ends like A New Hope. Instead I was treated to a personal account of one boy surviving every horrible thing the universe could throw at him, because who needs a happy childhood to turn into a well-adjusted and happy adult? Ha ha ha, let's make this kid suffer as he grows up, lose everything, fall in love with someone unattainable, and betray people he cares for multiple times for the person he loves even though he can't figure out if that person actually cares for him or is just using him. If you want some angst, my friends, allow me to introduce you to Jos Musey. Read more... )

In regards to groups versus relationships, this exchange will be sticking to the status quo of individual characters plus groups. In this exchange a group just means that all of the characters in the tag need to appear in the fic or art. It does not imply any specific relationship between the characters.

How to handle fandoms is a bit harder for me to decide on. I’ve read all the comments and have considered all of them. On one hand some fandoms are big and complicated and depictions of the same character can be very different. On the other hand it doesn’t make much sense to me that characters that should know each other have to be put under crossovers just because they’ve never been on screen together, for example Natasha Romanoff and Melinda May. Umbrella canons discourage participants who only know part of it, but they also make it easier for people that don’t want to use multiple slots on the same canon. The same person can have different preferences for different canons.

Taking all of that into account, plus what was said in the comments, I’ve decided that I will handle fandoms completely differently this year. It will accommodate everybody regardless of their preferences, eliminates some issues for me, and will allow me to accept nominations faster if all goes well.

I will post in greater detail later. This is just meant as an informal heads up that something new is coming.

Weekly Check In April 23

Yesterday -- Earth Day -- saw tens of thousands of people March for Science in hundreds of places around the world, celebrating science and protesting the Minority President's proposed cuts to federal science and research budgets. Those cuts will form part of the new budget which Congress needs to pass when it returns this coming week. The likely sticking points are the Mexican Wall and funding for the ACA, while there are plans to revive the repeal of the ACA before the administration's 100th day on April 29.

TODAY, SUNDAY APRIL 23: ACLU People Power is holding deportation solidarity events outside regional ICE offices at 3 p.m.

Housekeeping
Reminder that we have a suggestion post if there’s a topic that you’d like to see discussed but would like to ask the mods to look into. This can be anything from general information, or a how-to-do-a-thing, or something you may want to discuss as a community. Folks are welcome to post directly to the comm as always, but if you’re not comfortable/don’t have spoons, we can help too.

It's been quite quiet in the comm this week, but here are some reminders of ongoing or future actions

Action
Public Participation in EPA's Regulatory Reform - Deadline: 15 May 2017

Upcoming Protests

April 29: Peoples Climate March - see these posters for National Parks in 2050 if climate change continues for inspiration and slogans.
June 11: LGBT+ March

Other news to know
There's been a steady drip feed of minor new revelations about the Trump Campaign's Russian links, the situation with North Korea rumbles on, and Syria is still a mess. For a catch up to the major developments each day, What the Fuck Just Happened Today usually provides good links to the key stories.

French voters go to the polls today to pick the two candidates for the run-off on May 7, and the UK government has called a snap general election on June 8. (I'm in the UK and this just makes me want to cry, because our opposition parties are so dysfunctional at the moment. I think my main hope is that the early signs the centre/left are figuring out how to build the kind of resistance movements, like Indivisible, that you've seen in the US will bear fruit -- if not for this election, for the long term.)

So, what have you all been up to in the last week or planning to get involved in next week?

    ACLU People Power has organized deportation solidarity event outside regional ICE offices tomorrow, Sunday, April 23rd at 3 p.m.

    I know there's one in Boston, and a quick check found others in New York and Seattle. (The website isn't set up to search for events by date or time; I found those two by searching based on my old NYC and Bellevue, WA, zip codes.)

    The Boston event looks small so far: 121 of us have signed up to attend, so I figure I'll be more noticeable there than I would be if I'd made it to the March for Science today.

    Note: this was originally announced for April 22nd, and then rescheduled a couple of days ago.
