Thank you so much for writing a story for me!

I am into: into: Worldbuilding, settings, adventures, neat ideas, engagement with canon, complication of canon (including making antagonists sympathetic).

DNW: The standard set of warning items (Canon character death is fine though.)

Dusty California - Paul and Storm (Song)

There's a whole 70s rock superhero continuity alluded to in this song. I'd love to see some of the derring-do of the Arroyo Harbor Desperados and see how their powers work in the field.

Super optional prompt #1: Do the Desperados have secret identities? Do their musical and superheroic careers ever come into conflict?
Super optional prompt #2: Who are some of the villains the band fights in the song? Are they connected to other aspects of 1970s California? Or are they from somewhere or somewhen else?
Super optional prompt #3: It's not at all clear from the song that the Desperados are actually good people or even heroes. Are there others around who see them differently?

20th Century Naval Vessels (Anthropomorfic)
USS Independence (CV-62), Italian training ship Amerigo Vespucci
My request is inspired by this brief historical flirtation between the two ships in the 60s, and the immediate need to anthropomorphize the pair.

Note #1: Since the Independence was decommissioned in 1998 and is currently being dismantled, that death is canon.

Note #2: I'm deliberately not specifying the gender of either ship in this prompt, but please feel free to do whatever you would like to with their genders.

Super optional prompt #1: Did the two ships communicate further after their meeting? What did the Vespucci think of the Independence's statement?
Super optional prompt #2: What does the Vespucci think of the Independence's decommissioning? Does the Vespucci have thoughts about the next ship to bear the Independence's name?
Super optional prompt #3: Any sort of AU with the two ships!

Succession - Scott Westerfeld

I love the scope of this series. It feels very real, and provides a great sense of wonder without feeling at all unrealistic.

Super optional prompt #1: How do Rana and h_rd reunite after book 2? Are they able to be together?
Super optional prompt #2: What does Alexander think of what has happened? How aware is Alexander of the political ramifications of what has been revealed?

4/29/17 09:55 am - Nice Glass: A Cassingle Mix for Jadelennox

So, jadelennox made a joke about putting a mix on cassingle, and it got me thinking. So we decided on some ground rules (5 minutes/side, must be released as an individual track, no more than 50% Fingertips) and here we are.

Nice Glass
Side 1
Side 2
Zip file with individual tracks and cover

1/12/17 07:37 am - A rant

I don't give much credit to anybody who blames anything about Hillary or her campaign for Trump's election. Hillary would be preparing for the presidency today if a lot of people hadn't had the following thought process: "It's vitally important that Trump not be elected. The only way that can happen is for Hillary to win. But I can gain some small advantage for myself by making her job harder, and I'm sure that there won't be too many people who think like me. So I'll give Trump some help for my own benefit." Most of our national and local news organizations seem to have done this. A lot of leftists seem to have done this. And a whole lot of moderate Republicans have done this.

So I don't think it is at all appropriate for anyone, especially any of these people, to criticize the Americans who did the most of any of us to stop Trump before he was elected. If you are in this group, I don't need you to apologize (as much as Les Moonves in tears on prime time CBS may be warranted) but I do need you to step up. If you are a news professional, stop reporting Trump's lies and opinions and stratagems. Stand in solidarity with the news organizations he targets and ask their questions for them if needed. If you are a leftist, call your reps, help the Democratic Party organize against Trump, and hold them to stand firm. If you are a moderate Republican, the time has come to publicly break with Trump. If the rest of the GOP is unwilling to abandon him, change parties, especially if you hold elected office.

We can argue about policy once we're done dealing with fascists.
