st_aurafina: HG gripping Myka's wrist from the episode 'Reset' (Warehouse 13: HG and Myka in Reset)
[personal profile] st_aurafina
Would there be anyone willing to do an Ameripick on 5K of Warehouse 13 fic? It's femslash, Helena/Myka, I'll probably rate it PG, but there's not much more than hand holding and kissing in it. (Also some slightly depressing thoughts about the Boer War, hence the PG.)


Remember [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses? Now there's [community profile] 15kisses and its sister comm, [community profile] 15kinks. I took a kisses table for Root/Shaw. Eeee, maybe I can even get something written for it. *crosses fingers*
ETA: Also [community profile] 15woes for all your angsty fic needs, and [community profile] whole_new_world for AU claims. (Via [personal profile] chronikle)

Also [community profile] ssrconfidential (Agent Carter ficathon comm) is having a bit of a prompts fest: Plot bunny hutch (aka prompt sharing station!). Go, get your Peggy shoes on and kick some butt!

I am so sorry I didn't have a chance to post while the AHCA was being voted on - but I was collecting light and joyous linkspam to buoy my flist up - I'll post it now. Because we're all going to need buoying, pretty much until this time has passed.

The word buoy has ceased to have any meaning, also.

Begin Linkspam!
- Feel better about the nightmare world for 30 seconds with this tiny kid doing the haka. A most ferocious haka!

- Melissa McCarthy As Sean Spicer Performs "I Feel Pretty" In An SNL Teaser
The video won't play for me (in Australia) but the gifs are amazing. (Also, how omg pretty is Melissa McCarthy? She's gorgeous.)

- Kickstarter for a Frida Kahlo action figure

- My new favourite word cloud generator: Tagcrowd (Since Wordle has ceased to function and I am too scared to force Java to work so it does.) Just in case anyone else uses them for editing, like I do. (Helps me get rid of lazy words. Like/look/something/such/seem/almost. And so on.)

- Everyone and their dog has linked this, but please enjoy Tom Holland's lipsync battle. He kicks ass dressed as Rihanna and dancing his backside off. I feel quite different about Spider-Man now.




Whale, they’ve arrived. Whale watching season has arrived here. There are whales less than half an hour away from where I am right now - this delights me every year.

- Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie Join Elisabeth Moss for “Top of the Lake: China Girl”. Top of the Lake's first season was incredibly wracking. S2 is probably going to be the same, but I'm going to watch it, because Gwendoline Christie. She looks so incredibly bogan and adorable in her copper's uniform! And omg, Nicole Kidman's hair and her freckles! I am totally here for all the wrong reasons, I know. Just call me Miss-The-Point-Dan.




- How to Read a Yarn Label. Things I ought to do before I start the project, but somehow never do.

- The Difference in Bernat Pop! Yarn Cakes, Caron Cakes, Mandala and Sweet Rolls. Yarn cakes are all the rage right now. I've only used the Premier Sweet Roll and honestly, the colour change is so abrupt that I might as well have just used regular yarn and had the colour changes where I wanted.

- Useless but adorable kitchen gadget, anyone?
It makes radishes into 1-Up mushrooms. That's all. That's the whole purpose.



- Free crochet pattern: Confetti Scarf. This is super cute, and I think I want to make one. I have some grey yarn and lots of coloured scraps. (I've been rolling my scraps into tiny balls and keeping them in a mason jar, it makes me feel very Insta.)

- Pink Moon Milk {a dreamy sleep tonic}. Because I'm a sucker for a hipster recipe with almond milk. Though I do not have any ashwagandha powder, and have no idea where I would find some. It just looks so pretty!

End linkspam!

I keep meaning to do a round-up of media consumed lately, but I keep getting involved in these linkspams. I do have thoughts that are not shallow and centred around craft and pink milk! Also, I need to do the music meme, but the next topic is "A song that reminds you of someone you'd rather forget about." And presumably I have forgotten all the people I need to forget, because I can't think of anyone. Um.

Ashwagandha: from iherb. I've tried it. It may or may not work as an adaptogen, but I would not sprinkle it in something I wanted to taste good. It is a pretty recipe, though.

Smol child's haka did indeed make me feel slightly better about the world, thank you.

I'm no good for helping get rid of Australianisms, but the idea of Helena/Myka made me happy.

I guess I should give the first season of Top of the Lake another go -- I just found it rather tedious so never got beyond the first 2 episodes. The trailer for the 2nd season looks more interesting.

Grim doesn't bother me (not does extreme violence and that sort of thing) because my brain never lets me forget it's just a scripted TV show, nothing real.

I thought the thing was set in NZ and Moss was supposed to be doing a Kiwi accent? Seems to me I remember some criticism of her accent at the time... but I could be misremembering.

That reminded me of this article I read the other day about the rise of the bad movie accent: http://news.nationalpost.com/arts/movies/the-rise-of-the-bad-movie-accent-from-dick-van-dykes-cockney-to-gerard-butlers-irish-brogue

Ahem, now that I have read the rest of the entry. That child doing the haka is an utter delight. The pink moon milk sounds either amazing or horrific. I'm not sure I want to seek out ashwagandha powder just to try it...

Yeah, that lipsync battle has made me take an interest in Spider-Man. Still not sure I need to go see the movie but Tom Holland is a gem. ♥

Pink Milk just reminds me of Gintama these days... ;)

Not sure if it would be up your alley, but here's a vid:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ei--PtOMAk

(the vid has nothing to do with milk, but on the show, his obsession with Strawberry milk starts around ep 10,)

And since I, myself, can't drink cow's milk, this almond milk recipe is interesting! I already find all those milk substitute drinks too sweet, but adding tart cherry juice sounds like a great idea to counter that (and that means I'll of course leave out the honey, too).

- I have not seen Top of the Lake season 1, but that trailer looks really good!
- Melissa McCarthy is indeed gorgeous
- the radish tool cracks me up. Someone saw a mighty need for it and invented it.
- I had been seeing gifs of the Tom Holland thing, but not the actual video (and had no idea who he was). It was amazing, go Tom!

Tom Holland's lipsync battle was amazing. That boy can dance! I just love when they go full out and really get into it in the lipsync battles.
