adevyish: Icon of Tsuna with a gecko on his head looking happy (zomgyay)
First Oda Nobunari and now Stephane Lambiel lending their voices to Yuri on Ice! This makes me intensely happy. I hope they throw a shout-out in to Evgenia Medvedeva at some point too, because she’s more or less responsible for the entire skating community watching YoI.

Anyway, I made a post on Tumblr a few weeks after the show started airing about Femininity, Men’s Skating, and Yuri on Ice, if you're interested in my thoughts on yoi the history of toxic masculinity and veiled homophobia in figure skating and why Yuri on Ice’s promotion of femininity in men’s skating should be applauded.

Also, ICYMI, Johnny Weir gave an in-depth interview with The Geekiary about how he felt watching Yuri on Ice.

Hi! Thanks so much for writing for me and I’m really forward to reading your work!

In an entirely healthy way of dealing with Brexit, I’m now campaigning to see Chief Mouser Larry as the next Prime Minister. Follow the campaign on Twitter at @LarryforPM.

(I’ve already gone through all of my dismayed reaction pics of Labour MPs (and former MPs) on my personal Twitter and two different Tumblrs, but campaigning for #Larry4PM has a better and more positive impact on the world.)

There’s a crystalline beauty in stumbling across a fic which you like, and then you look up the writer’s œuvre and realize you’d read a fic by them ages ago on a different site in a completely different fandom and era. Like wandering among uni grounds in the beginning of the year and running into an old friend.

I’m having one of those weeks (months) where I can’t really breathe or move very much, and have compensated for it by diving much too deep into a fandom. So I’ve been reading a lot of KHR fic, and only just remembered that KHR was during LJ era so I actually have to look for rec lists and can’t just wade through AO3 and FFN. Both of which I already did, if you want to know how dire my straits are.

Anyway, Yuri on Ice! I’m incredibly excited for this anime. For one, it looks like they’re actually going to be semi-accurate to RL figure skating. I’ve read enough figure skating manga over the years to despair about this, multiple times. Secondly, the artistry shown in the 1st teaser alone—Viktor’s melancholy look up, hair flowing, hand moving in despair—wow. The sound of the ice scratching as a skater comes to a stop took me straight to the rink-side watching someone skate. Also Suwabe Junichi is voicing the artistic brooding Russian skater Viktor and ToyoToshi is voicing the go-getter main character Yuuri, so I’d probably have watched this regardless of the fact it’s all of my anime dreams come true at once.

(Fingers extremely crossed they don’t screw up the figure skating details because I have been known to rant about GOE for days on end. I recently confirmed how deeply I am in this hole as I was at a figure skating event among hardcore fans, and was somehow the person providing scoring commentary. Aiyah.)

Notes: ICYMI I watched a lot of go this week and wrote the Lee Sedol v. AlphaGo match into a fanfic.

Nine or ten years ago, I fell in half-love with Suigetsu Yuki’s Only You and Eden no Hana, despite the soap opera dramatics. Within a year, she was suspended for plagiarism, and I remembering being completely broke up about the fact that Eden no Hana would never finish.

When Suigetsu Yuki came back with Chihayafuru in 2007, I was so excited about it, but I never read it. I didn’t read it when it won the Manga Taishou in 2009. I didn’t watch it when the anime began airing in 2011. I didn’t watch it when my then-coworker, who I admired, vehemently recommended it to me while drunk and walking home from his farewell party in 2011 or 2012. “It’s nostalgia,” he said.

I’ve just watched the first episode. It’s kind of funny, because its theme has haunted me through my teenage years: a nostalgia for the simple friendships that you have when you are ten years old. The first significant story I wrote, that I started writing in 2007, was about exactly that. I spent three years in total writing that story, trying to give it a happy ending, trying to let the main character get over the past. Perhaps it’s for the best I never started reading Chihayafuru in 2007, when I still bought into that nostalgia.

Ten years later: I’m back to Suigetsu Yuki.

First of all, [personal profile] eruthiel is my new favourite person ever for writing me the most amazing Yuletide gift (Fortune Depends).

Now I’m going to meta on two stories I wrote, since I didn’t want to meta all over AO3. Read more... )

adevyish: Icon saying "represent" (represent)
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Characters/Pairing: Fuji Yuuta, Fuji Shuusuke, and practically everyone else. Yuuta/Tomoka sort of not really.
Length: ~5,680 words (this chapter)
Rating: G
Summary: If things had gone another way, Fuji Shuusuke would have made a very successful boyband member and actor. Fuji Yuuta in any universe has no idea how to deal with his brother.
Warnings: Boy band/entertainment industry AU.
Notes: I started this story more than 4 years ago, but never got around to writing much of it, so I’m posting it now to force myself to continue writing it. The adopted!Fujis idea was from Immortality by [ profile] w175n57; I’m just taking it to the logical conclusion of shoujo manga–esque starring one Fuji Yuuta as hapless heroine.

In my last post, quoted from Maciej Cegłowski of Pinboard fame:

In this post, quoted from Eric Meyer, CSS expert nonpareil:
Searching For Mark Pilgrim

Just yesterday, I took a screenshot of the title page of Dive Into HTML5 to include in a presentation as a highly recommended resource. Now it’s gone. That site, along with all the other “Dive Into…” sites (Accessibility, Python, Greasemonkey, etc.) and, is returning an HTTP “410 Gone” message. Mark’s Github, Google+, Reddit, and Twitter accounts have all been deleted. And attempts to email him have been bounced back.

This is very reminiscent of Why the Lucky Stiff’s infosuicide, and it’s honestly shocking.
Followed up with:
Mark Pilgrim is alive/annoyed we called the police. Please stand down and give the man privacy and space, and thanks everyone for caring.
There really is no difference.

Pinboard has traditionally been the bastion of web tech and Daring Fireball–types, but now as fandom's moving to Pinboard:

Popular Tags (as of 2011/09/29)


Also of note:

joeld: Somehow @Pinboard's popular page got taken over by gay fan fiction. I rather miss the web/entrepreneurial stuff predominating.
Pinboard: @joeld same amount of wank, just in a different format

Anyway, for those of you thinking of migrating to Pinboard: it's slightly under $10 to get an account (flat fee), which will rise along with the # of users. You can also pay extra annually to get automatic backups of everything you save (pretty neat). Pinboard still isn't quite fleshed out yet despite being a couple years old, but it looks like Maciej will get stuff like tag bundles and group privacy like LJ up in a reasonable amount of time.

If you're still using Delicious, here's a userstyle to make the new layout more tolerable.
