Sometimes, Internet is scary. More precisely, the reactivity of advertisement tracking, or whatever they call it, is scary.
I do block ads, so I rarely see any. In consequence I'm generally oblivious of all this. But on Facebook, there's this little window of "suggested groups" that doesn't appear as ad, so isn't blocked. It's been suggesting fan groups for a long time. Matt Bomer groups, Channing Tatum groups. I'd always assumed it was coming from the groups I do follow (White Collar pages, the official Magic Mike page, and the people who also follow those groups).

I watched The Night Manager last week. A friend of mine was also watching it, and we discussed it via Messenger/Facebook chat (Note that to make things easier, we were calling him Loki all along). I think I might have done one Google search on Tom Hiddleston. I wanted to show her the Jaguar commercial that Tom did that I happened to see last week.
And now Facebook is suggesting me Tom Hiddleston groups! It's spying on me !! I googled him once! ONCE! That's the first time I see something with him! I'm not going to follow that group, or any group, so Facebook, stop it!

Mozzie, help!

Oh, by the way, The Night Manager was very good.

Title: Crossing Over
Fandoms: White Collar, Second Chance
Author: Aragarna
Characters: Peter Burke, Jimmy Pritchard, Elizabeth Burke
Genre, rating: crack, humor, fluff with a drop of angst, crossover. Gen, G.
Word count: ~ 1500
Spoilers: None for White Collar, up to 1x08 for Second Chance (Though nothing essential really).
Summary: Peter meets a young man who claims to be his father.
Author's Note: The crossover everyone was thinking about. Someone had to write it, right? ;) This fills pipilj's prompt at Collar Corner, who wanted characters stranded in the wrong TV show. Once again, many thanks to anodyneer for the beta!!

It was already night time when Peter finally parked the car in front of his Brooklyn house. Exhausted by a tedious day in the field chasing leads and criminals, he slowly climbed the steps and pushed open the door of his home. He slipped out of his shoes and jacket, loosened his tie, and crashed on the sofa. With a heavy sigh, he grabbed the remote and switched on the TV.Collapse )

A scientific study has shown something that I have felt for years:
"We are attracted to people whose emotions we can easily understand—and that may be due in part to matching neural circuitry."

This is exactly what I've felt, the reason I felt why I fell in love with George and more recently Tim. I've always felt that I understood them, I could read them, and that's why I felt a connection to them. Now I know why: We're brain twins!!

Short version: if any of you had been waiting to know if 1- it was worth watching, and 2- it will be given a satisfactory ending in case it wouldn't be renewed, I would say the answer is yes, to both account.

The long rambly and illustrated versionCollapse )

They're all quite simple and for most of them, merely caps I twickled for levels, contrasts and colors, but they make my laptop so Duvalicious, I thought I should share. :)

snagged from elrhiarhodan

Pick a passage from my stories , up to 500 words, - or just pick a story, I'm flexible - from anything I've written in this journal, and comment to this post with that selection (including a link to the story being excerpted). I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the story, awful puns [perhaps], and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

The complete collection of my fanfictions is available on my illustrated Master list or on AO3 - yes, all of it, finally on AO3!

Last day! For "white" I could have posted my White Collar t-shirt, but it's just a basic white t-shirt with the White Collar logo. You all know what it looks like. So instead, I picked another show...

Day ten: whiteCollapse )

Thank you all for playing along and making me feel good about all my nerdy t-shirts! ;) And special thanks to leesa_perrie who came up with the meme! Now I can go back to being on time at work... ;)

The Rules:
Each day, take a photo that fits the colour theme and then post that photo. Yes, it has to be taken on the day you're sharing it, no earlier! You may share more than one photo per day, but try not to spam your friends with an excessive numbers of them!

Day 1 - Purple
Day 2 - Green
Day 3 - Red
Day 4 - Blue
Day 5 - Yellow
Day 6 - Brown
Day 7 - Orange
Day 8 - Pink
Day 9 - Black
Day 10 - White

Title: Where to Stop the Story
Author: Aragarna
Characters: Neal Caffrey, Elizabeth Burke, Peter Burke, Mozzie
Genre, rating: post-series feels, angst and fluff, gen, G.
Word count: ~800
Summary: If you want a happy ending, it depends where you stop your story. Neal likes this happy ending.
Author's Note: A very happy birthday to my favorite partner in shenanigans paganlowroader !! This is the sequel of Death is not (always) the end, though can be read as a standalone.

It was a lovely day. Neal had been a little anxious at first, accepting the Burkes’ brunch invitation. It would be the first time that he would be reunited with both Peter and Mozzie. They all were still trying to find their way back into their old companionship and Neal wasn’t sure how to manage both men at the same time.Collapse )

This one was a tough choice because I have quite a few black tshirts. I didn't want to spam you all, so I picked 2.

Day nine: black - double featureCollapse )
