Cut for spoilers, but for those trying to find or avoid positive/negative responses I'm leaning back towards yay Trek again today. )

Some mildly spoilery thoughts for Desperate Hours (the tie-in novel) in relation to 1.05 )

On a completely trivial note, my computer and mobile devices all keep trying to autocorrect Georgiou to gorgeous (which, yes, but also stoppit) and can anyone recommend a good icon maker(s) doing Star Trek Discovery? I really, really need some pretties, but nothing is crossing my feed.

Date Of Posting: October 15, 2017
Disclaimer: I don’t own ‘em, DC does, more’s the pity.
Word Count (this chapter): 1338
Feedback welcome and appreciated.
Author’s Notes: This AU is set in the pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths Earth-2. The Golden Age heroes lived on that Earth, and that included the Dynamic Duo. Earth-2’s Dick Grayson never split from Bruce, but he gradually made a life for himself away from Gotham. The retcon part comes as he winds up getting his Greetings from Uncle Sam.
Note: The incident in Dick's letter happened to my father. Pretty shocking for a 17-year-old from Massachusetts training for combat in Korea. Also the training camp scene. The Irish-American was my father. Welcome to the South! All chapters can be found here.

Dick finally got his orders to ship out on February 1, 1953. )

... but still deep in this plague. This isn't a proper post because I don't have the energy (and what little I have is being diverted to writing and modding), buuuut.

[community profile] femslashex is going live later tonight, and I'm super excited about it so you should make sure you come read all the femslash with me
[community profile] smallfandombang sign ups are still open to the end of the month
[community profile] holly_poly nominations are about to close
[community profile] trickortreatex and [community profile] fandomgrowthexchange still have some time left till reveals if you're looking for things to treat in

I'm also very excited about my Yuletide assignment, will have a houseguest in a little over a week so might not be around much from then till early-mid November, am definitely doing Nano (if anyone wants on my writing filter and can't see this post lemme know, and I'm also very around for London based write-ins or online writing sprint buddies during November), and in pursuit of an activity that won't drain me of what little energy this virus deigns to allow me to retain I have bought a giant stack of DS9 novels on my Kindle. And they are glorious. And I want to write tiny niche Trek fic about Cardassia for days and days and days.

But I can't. Because I have deadlines, and The Never Ending Sacrifice Flu.

Novel list/babble if anyone is so inclined in this area. )

Week 5: New England Patriots 19, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 (3-2) (Thursday, October 5, 2017)

Well, the Pats did manage to pull out a win on a short week, but it was ugly! The offense looked like it was clicking but stalled several times in the end zone. The defense was improved since last Sunday but they still gave up the dreaded Big Plays, and they committed two consecutive roughing-the-passer penalties at the end of the first half that gave the Bucs an opportunity to steal 3 points. Fortunately their kicker couldn't get the ball through the uprights. An undisciplined Bill Belichick team is a shockah! Special teams were so-so, too.

The offensive line is a big concern. Tom got sacked, hit, and pressured WAY too much. He'll never last the season with all these big hits! Something has to be done, and quick!

Hopefully ten days off will help this team. They sure need to turn it around. 3-2 is okay, but hardly setting the world on fire.

Everyone in the division is playing tomorrow so I'll update after the games.

EDIT: Everyone won this week except for the Bills.

Next week, the New York Jets welcome the boys from Foxboro!


NE 3-2
BUFF 3-2
NYJ 3-2
Miami 2-2

Happy Birthday!!!

Wow! I wake up this morning and an anonymous gifter has provided me with a paid account for a year on LJ! *squees*

That allows me 82 out of my 285 icons, too. Much better than 15! Though if anyone would like to help out with extra userpic packages, I have the space now ;)

But a HUGE THANK YOU to my anonymous gifter! I now have a few Halloween icons again! And can choose any layout I want. *hurries off to play*

You have made my day! :)


Don't Forget Diana! :)
