I will be jumping ship here and leaving LJ behind. It's strange to do since I've been on LJ for several years (sadly, am even a permanent account owner) but I think I've had just about enough of the crap and the DDoS attacks and downtime and lack of cooperation on the staff's part. Ah well. Change can be good.
Feel free to friend me here on Dreamwidth if you have an account! I'd like to find everyone else who has jumped ship too.This entry was originally posted at http://twbasketcase.dreamwidth.org/190153.html. Please comment there using OpenID.

at Mississippi Personhood Amendment
Okay, so I don't usually do this, but this is an issue near and dear to me and this is getting
no attention in the mainstream media.
Mississippi is voting on November 8th on whether to pass Amendment 26, the "Personhood Amendment". This amendment would grant fertilized eggs and fetuses personhood status.
Putting aside the contentious issue of abortion, this would effectively outlaw birth control and criminalize women who have miscarriages. This is not a good thing. Jackson Women's Health Organization
is the only place women can get abortions in the entire
state, and they are trying to launch a grassroots movement against this amendment. This doesn't just apply to Mississippi, though, as Personhood USA, the group that introduced this amendment, is trying to introduce identical amendments in all 50 states
What's more, in Mississippi, this amendment is expected to pass. It even has Mississippi Democrats, including the Attorney General, Jim Hood, backing it.
The reason I'm posting this here is because I made a meager donation to the Jackson Women's Health Organization this morning, and I received a personal email back hours later - on a Sunday - thanking me and noting that I'm one of the first "outside" people to contribute.
So if you sometimes pass on political action because you figure that enough other people will do something to make a difference, make an exception on this one. My RSS reader is near silent on this amendment. I only found out about it through a feminist blog. The mainstream media is not reporting on it.
If there is ever a time to donate or send a letter in protest, this would be it.
What to do?
- Read up on it. Wake Up, Mississippi
is the home of the grassroots effort to fight this amendment. Daily Kos
also has a thorough story on it.
- If you can afford it, you can donate at the site's link.
- You can contact the Democratic National Committee
to see why more of our representatives aren't speaking out against this.
- Like this Facebook page
to help spread awareness.
Here are my fanfic prompt tables. I find using prompts keeps me busier and more motivated to write. So yeah, these will always be in progress. ( RicStar100Collapse )
Credit for prompt table goes to: betterthanlegos
. She made it, so it's hers. Credit her if you decide to use it. I have changed a few prompts on this one to better suit my fandom, however. My rules are as follows:
1) Stories will focus on Rictor, Shatterstar, and/or RicStar
2) All ratings and genres are being used
3) Story lengths range from drabble (100 words) to epics (100,000+ words)
4) If one boy is in it, and not the other, at least a vague reference has to made to the one not appearing.
5) Some of these are public, some are f-list only, and some are custom friend locked. All accessibility was done for a reason, so if you want to read something you can't read, let me know and I'll open it for you.( Ric/Star Smut ChallengeCollapse )

1) Most of these fics will be rated NC-17. I'm just not as good at writing general romance, especially for these two since I just don't see them as a particularly "romantic" or "cheesy" type of couple.
2) Some older fics I had written previously have been added here.
3) These will be graphic, so if you don't like, then don't read.
Hey everyone! I just removed about 70 or so people from my flist. I removed people if I have lost touch, didn't even recognize your name, or we just never spoke after the initial friending. IF we are still in touch and you think that I may have removed you on accident DEAR GOD PLEASE TELL ME SO THAT I CAN FIX THAT. I am not angry with anyone, so it'd truly be a mistake! LMAO
Also, if you just want to be re-added for any other reason then I suppose you can let me know here!
Did a friends cut and removed a small amount of people that I've lost touch with. I will more than likely be doing a larger one this weekend, so if you'd like to stay on (or I just removed you and you don't want to be removed) please let me know here.
COMICS: Misc, Uncanny X-Force [Archangel, Psylocke, Deadpool, Wolverine, Fantomex, Apocalypse] **Spoilers**
MOVIES: Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Shining, Clockwork Orange, Se7en, RHPS, Fear & Loathing, Misc
TV SHOWS:: I Love Lucy, He-Man, 80's and 90's Cartoons.

I'll be shutting down Shattering the Earth
in seven (7) days. Sorry to have to do this, but I can't afford to keep it running anymore. I'm a poor college student and I won't even be able to update it again anyways. :(
Thought I'd give people a head's up so that they can save any fics/links and stuff.
Hell yeah I made icons. There are random ones under the cut, and X-Men ones under the cut. They are just bases, though, so don't be all OMG CONTRAST TEXTURE COLOUR BRIGHT LIGHT DARK whatsit on me. :P67 Random
[Macros, MSPaint drawings, 90s, NSFW pictures, and lolcats]84 X-Men Promo Pics
[X-Men, New X-Men, New X-Force, X-Villains, and Generation Hope]( I"m retardedCollapse )
So I promised Jess some pictures of my pets. I was going to edit all these, but my camera somehow turned out REALLY amazing looking pictures, so I want to leave them as is. Click the links below if you want to see. :)( WARNING: HUEGCollapse )
AND I THINK THAT IS IT. At least, I don't think I'm missing anyone that I still own. LMAO. Hope you enjoyed!
Hi! Is anyone interested in making me some Mystique icons? I have pics! A BUNCH HERE
and there are some more HERE
If anyone could do some--even just a couple--I would love you forever :3
Metal lost a fucking LEGEND today. I first got into Ronnie James when I hit my big Black Sabbath phase when I was 13. Of course, I ended up being a much bigger fan of his solo years (especially since Ozzy!Sabbath was my favourite era of BS). Holy Diver was a song my friends/band used to listen to back in the day when we'd drink 40oz bottles of Old English malt liquor on the porch ON REPEAT. We'd be fourteen/fifteen years old and sitting on the front porch and totally into it. That song will always remind me of those days and just jamming out like little shitheads to feel better when we were too pissed off.
Which was a lot.
It's funny, now that I think about it, how much metal we use to listen to when we were so faithfully devoted to the punk scene. There used to be all sorts of funny 'rivalries' between punks and metalheads back in the 80s and as little kids (in my generation) some thought these things had to be FOLLOWED in order to be 'in' with the scene (which was just...hilarious when you think of the irony).
Those were the days. Ronnie James, man, you will be missed! I'm having a drink in your honour!
First off the bat, I've done a rather large friends cut. I cut a lot of people I lost touch with, people I obviously didn't get along with, people who I friended forever ago and never got friended back, and people I just flat out had no idea who they were. LMFAO. Sorry that we lost touch, no hard feelings, etc. Take care!
Secondly, I got like six emails last night. Six. From people who were asking what's happening to http://www.shatteringtheearth.com
FYI - I let the bill run out. It went unpaid because my credit card got stolen and to be perfectly honest, I wasn't going to renew it at all. But the emails kind of swayed me a little, so I put a new credit card number on there and it should be back up in a few days.
I guess it just got me thinking that I put a LOT of work into the site, and despite falling out of love with what's been done to the characters and even more so with the fandom, I still love their history and what they used to be. It's unfortunate that one of them had to adopt another character's personality to finally become appreciated--and for that I will never respect that aspect of the character. I can't. But I still love how he WAS. I also can't fathom people loving him just because he is gay. That sort of thing always disgusted me about fandom, and how spikes of popularity happen whenever buttsex is included. Give me a fucking break. /rant. I have had faith for many years in those characters and what they were and what I loved about them, and I guess having that so drastically changed has been a bit of an obstacle in keeping the site up.
Well, that and how many internet news sites did STE get attention from last May & June? XD A lot. That's no reason to give up, I decided. So all of that history that I know and love will remain up, but I don't expect to be updating the site any time soon. I hope this helps, and do feel free to continue to enjoy what's still there.
That's all! I have a disgusting wedding to go to later, so I'll probably update again when I get home.
