caffienekitty: (dr horrible - status not quo)
I've always said I'd stick with Livejournal until it dies, but the limit has now been reached. So, unfortunately, over the next long while I will be transferring my primary journal activities to my Dreamwidth fractured mirror.

You're all welcome to follow me on there, but I won't be friending back (or whatever they call it) for a long while until I can figure out how to reinstate the filters on some filtered posts. Right now everything is far too exposed over there. This will be a very rocky process.

I'm also looking for:
-Clear simple instructions on how to download and backup the stuff I have in Livejournal's Scrapbook, along with its folder structuring.
-An image hosting service that's cheap/free and reliable and offers at least 2gb of space.
-Places on Dreamwidth to find fandom communities there.

I'm sure more things will crop up as this process gets underway.

If I manage to write anything during this period, it will be posted to my AO3 account I do have a semi-active tumblr that I'm currently reblogging a lot of Merlin and random things on, and very rarely posting anything myself.

I've just received a PM from someone on fanfiction.net:

ETA: Putting some things to condense space on f-lists.

Subject: STOLEN FIC

Hey!!

I just found our fanfiction on amazon to buy. Someone called Brian Lewis is selling it under the name "Supernatural: Hell Inn".... it is an exact copy of your story. Please go and check it out on .

You are the second person now, he also published other fanfiction!

Please, please, check it out!



The problem is to confirm this I'd need to buy the eBook. It galls me a little to have to give the guy money to find out if he's ripping me and other people off, but primarily (and quite ridiculously) it's not feasible for me to afford the purchase right now. [snip personal details]

The Amazon page does say however that if you have a Kindle and an Amazon Prime account that you can download the ebook for free. Does anyone have this access available and can take a look? He's got a bunch of other ebooks up from Supernatural and several other fandoms (it looks like he posted them all on this past Sunday). If it's the case with this one that the stories are plagiarized, the rest of the ebooks are likely similarly plagiarized, and if so, the word needs to be spread.

It really needs to be confirmed before anyone goes openly accusing this guy publicly online though.

ETA: Further info:


Hey!

Yes, of course. Here are the basic infos:

Supernatural: Hell Inn

FANFICTION: When the Fiddler Stops by CaffieneKitty
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/3805518/1/When-the-Fiddler-Stops ORIGINAL

(I hope allows now to send links, haven't been on here for a while :D)

It is your story "When the Fiddler stops". I only downloaded the sample, which is two pages, but they are word for word your story. (The person uploaded four other books, which are stolen fan fiction, too, I posted a link on tumblr: sorry if I posted your name, I just wanted to get it out there for the ones I couldn't find... I can erase it from the post if u want of course)

I can make a screencap from the first two pages I have on my phone if u want.



Here is the tumblr page the person PMing me has set up outlining the situation. ETA:Reposted here.

ETA2:SCREENCAPS OF THE EBOOK. (Thanks to xxxkia for posting them)
MY STORY, WHICH I POSTED IN SEPTEMBER 2007


So there's proof.

So it seems this guy and either another guy or a second ID of the same guy has definitely plagiarized a bunch of fanfic writers and is right now making money off their work on Amazon, so spread the word so that other people can find out if this jerk is making money of their fanwork.

If anyone knows what to do about this, that'd be really helpful.

I ran my microwave this morning and didn't realize there was a flying insect inside it at the time. I opened the door after about 20 seconds of microwaving (a bun-worth) and it flew out and away.

Soooo, if the west coast of North America is ravaged horribly sometime this month by a lone mutant flying insect, I apologize, I didn't know it was in there. (Alternately, if it bites me and I develop super mutant flying insect powers, I promise to use them for the good of humanity or something.)

Leaving this dream public for now, since because of extreme crack and some actual plot and stuff it may as well be fanfic. Also, this is the first in-depth dream I've had featuring the Avengers, so what the hell.


In which fake-Hawkeye nearly takes over the world because I am a bad cat-sitter and Tony Stark won't accept my calls. )

I haven't posted fanfic here since February, which is just wrong. No promises this is any good though, and I may chicken out and delete it won't be deleting it unless Hostess threatens to sue.


Title: Spongy Yellow Deliciousness
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating/Content: Gen, PG-13, Silliness. DOES NOT MESH ANY TIMELINES IN ANY WAY. Crack. Not to be taken seriously at all. Title is a quote from Zombieland which I have yet to see.
Word Count: 500-ish
Disclaimer: I do not own Supernatural, or any part or portion of Hostess Brands or their owners or subsidiaries, of which Twinkies are a trademarked property. I am not intending to defame Hostess Brands in any way, nor am I suggesting that Twinkies cannot be enjoyed in moderation as part of a healthy diet. I will state very firmly that to my knowledge, no real Twinkie has ever contained mind-altering substances from another dimension.
A/N: Rambling )

Summary: Dean returns from Purgatory to find that some things have changed.

caffienekitty: Road sign directing to Fitton Airfield (cabin pressure)
Yellow Car in Lots of Languages
(a compiled reference for the Cabin Pressure fandom)


Just in case someone else hasn't already done this, here's a list of what "Yellow Car!" is in every nearly language Google Translate offers (not included are the few my own computer doesn't have a charset for.) I was looking up a bunch for a story, so I figured why not look them all up and post them.

The placement or existence of exclamation points may be wrong in a few languages, and I have no clue how to pronounce many of these. If anyone who speaks or knows these languages has a correction or addition, post it in the comments. I did try to look it up in Klingon, Vulcan, Romulan, and Tolkien Elvish, but no luck.

List under cut, anything that shows up as boxes is a character set your computer doesn't have enabled. )

Title: Sherlock, the RPG
Fandom: Sherlock
Rating: Gen, PG13
Warning: AU? Non-British dialog with occasional gesture direction, profanity, and excessive use of the word "dude". CRACK.
Word Count: 800-ish
Disclaimer: I DISCLAIM ALL THE THINGS.
A/N: Found this on a rummage through my Google Docs and thought what the hell. Humour, but will make more sense if you have rolled polyhedral dice at some point in your life. Role-playing system used in here is SJG's Gurps, but I don't think you need to know anything about it. I may chicken out and delete or lock this. It's a bit weird. [LJ-only]

Summary: A climactic scene from "A Study in Pink" as part of a tabletop role-playing game held in Steve's North American basement.

As some of you know, my work schedule at this time of year, the last two weeks of April in particular (Canadian tax season goes later than U.S. and parts of it stretch on until June) is insane. In fact, today is the last day I won't be at work (for a period of 10 or more hours each day) until about May 8th, at which point I go back to getting one day away from work per week, yay, and all the backlogged other work stuff that's been put off due to tax season comes thundering down on my head.

What this means for the fun parts of my life is, well, I have none. Or at least very few.

How this will affect the posts I make or don't make over the next few weeks, if anyone's interested. )

In short, for the next while, this LJ will be mostly boring and whiny. I hope you all stick around for when I get small portions of my life back in May and can hopefully be interesting again.

*crossing fingers* for a SPN 6.17 reaction post today,(ETA: It's up!) and in the meanwhile *hugs* for everyone.
caffienekitty: (yeahright)
I blame [livejournal.com profile] bellatemple for this. Hers is here. Mine is thankfully very short because LJ voicepost only lets non-US folk have one minute. This thing does not exist in text form nor ever will, my god, although I'm wondering what the LJ auto-transcribe feature will make of it. Anyone into accents, this is me and my BC Coastal Mushmouth coming at you.

Concept: Alcoholic Been awake 37 hours straight Pod Fic

Fandom: Supernatural

Summary: Record audio of free-association micro-fanfic while too altered to think about it much.

I have a nifty book called "The Complete Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook". I realized while looking something up tonight that most of it makes for great fic prompts. So, if anyone wants an entirely random prompt that ranges from mortal danger to extreme crack, here's what to do:

Comment with a number (or a few (Maximum of five) numbers if you want options) between 24 and 507, and I'll let you know what the subject of that page is. Or if you have access to a copy, look it up yourself. What you do with what you get is entirely up to you.

Any takers?
caffienekitty: (sherlock)
I've posted another Sherlock recs post on the [livejournal.com profile] sherlockbbc comm, and someone over there has commented with the coolest thing. It's a massive spoiler for the finale, it's a graphic, and it points out a detail so awesome I can't even brain! And it's true! I checked! :-D
