*It’s new-ish! And, you know, debatably improved, depending on what you thought of the first one.
Whatever, guys, what I’m saying is: It’s totally a game now! A total game! You can download it today, and play with all your friends. Or your enemies. Or your cats. I don’t know. Live your own life, people.
A WTNV game? Yes please! (Link is still good, BTW.)

Original caption: View west parallel to pipeline alignment toward Worthington Glacier which descends from 6,000-foot-high peaks almost to the Richardson Highway. The pipeline will be pushed through dense forest like that seen here prior to crossing the Richardson Highway and Tsina river for the second time in seven miles. Mile 749, near the Alaska pipeline route.

On October 18, 1867, the United States officially took possession of the territory of Alaska, having agreed to purchase it from Russia for 7.2 Million Dollars. Alaska would become the 49th state on January 3, 1959.
…it’s just me. Hi. *Wavewave* Still not dead! Just reeeeeally busy, with spotty internet access. That’s not important! What’s important is that I have an announcement:
Michelle has a new book out! If Wishes Were Coffee, published by Less Than Three Press. It’s not a direct sequel to Enchanted Grounds, but there is a family relation. Set in the town of Playa Escondida, it’s the story of two guys who really need to get their acts together and the coffee-shop patron that gives them the kick in the pants that just might do it.
Michelle’s also going on a blog tour, the details of which can be found on her post here. Go! Comment there for a chance to win a copy of your own! Reeeeeead it! (It’s Michelle. You know it’s going to be good.)
And the first thing on the page is a Cecil/Carlos shirt! All the details are on the page, including the prize(s) and the specific requirements.
It’s things like this that make me wish I could draw. All I can do is come up with things like “Franchia: Arches and ruins? Definitely! Monsters? Maybe…”
Wow. I’ve been really productive, lately, which is awesome. Almost 25K words of original fiction!
Alas, nearly all of it is pure porn. I like this universe, though… I’m pretty sure I could make it work as some kind of linked-vignette kind of thing. I have no idea how to explain the universe without resorting to a fairly long Author’s Note with my email address at the end, for the inevitable questions and “But wait doesn’t that mean…”
Oh well. Writing’s writing, so I’m not complaining.
Because everyone needs a person pretending to be a salamander on their dash.
history meme ∙ (1/3) inventions ∙ printing press
The invention of improved movable type mechanical printing is credited to Johannes Gutenberg in 1450 although earlier versions are described in the history of printing. The exact date of Gutenberg’s press is debated based on existing screw presses. Gutenberg, a goldsmith by profession, developed a printing system by both adapting existing technologies and making inventions of his own. His newly devised hand mould made possible the rapid creation of metal movable type in large quantities. The printing press displaced earlier methods of printing and led to the first assembly line-style mass production of books.(+more)
Definitely one of my favorite inventions.
I don’t know if anyone has ever done this before but, here ya go… The Different Types of Fanfiction!
I probably left a few out, but these are the most common, compared to their base fiction’s canon plot. Enjoy! XD
The crack fic is enough for a reblog.
My favorite part is when authors write these themselves, and then you have a big, shiny, convoluted map that’s all canon.
Being the visual person that I am, I love this!
(Though… Shouldn’t the AU have specks of red in it, since the characters/characterizations/certain details are usually the same? For example, in An Exercise In Worthless, Dean is still suffering from nightmares/trauma-induced Issues, just as he does in canon, though beastofthesky translated canon into something that fits the new universe beautifully. Beast also kept Canon!Dean’s intense dislike/fear of flying, which would be another speck of red… I don’t know, it’s just something that occurred to me.)
