Largely Friends-Only journal, btw

Yeah, so, I actually really hate journaling. I'm mostly just here for the comms. I used to have a butt-ton of stuff like Quizilla quiz results on here when I was, like, 12, but I've since cleared them out because they were stupid and all the same emo darkness crap. I don't post very often.

Most of my journal posts are f-locked, though. So comment here or something if you want to friend me. I'm probably going to say no unless I already know you, though.

I also post some fiction-y sort of stuff here. That isn't flocked, because that'd be a jerk thing to do.

So.

Fixed the FF.Net version of Sword and Shield so it 1) is compliant with the Kurapika special, and 2) has no more stupid Freaky Friday shit.

I'll get to fixing the versions here sometime-eventually-maybe. I don't even really use LJ anymore and haven't been keeping up with the updates here anyway. Also, really tired right now because I haven't slept properly in a week. Probably will actually go fix it when I don't feel like a zombie.

Dear UK Flisters,

I know I'm preaching to the choir with you guys when it comes to LGBT equality, but believing something is fair and actually getting off your bum and doing something about it doesn't always follow like it should. So here's a little (and slightly preachy) reminder!!

Three things I'd like you all to do before you go to bed tonight (if you haven't already)

1/ Go here and sign the C4EM's petition for marriage equality. This is the simplest and probably most visible way to show your support. It currently has 60,000 signatures -- the petition against (by C4M) has over 500,000!!!

2/ Go here and fill out the government's consultation. It might take a little bit longer, but you can bet that for every pro-person who doesn't find the time, there will be dozens of 'anti' people who will.

3/ Email your MP. There's a handy template there for you to use so you don't even have to think of what to say. Also, you can go here to see where your MP stands on the issue. A hugely important thing to do because the majority of MPs will be voting with their conscience rather than following the party line, so make sure you let yours know your feelings.

4/ Okay, so I lied. There's actually a fourth thing. And that is simply spread the word. The consultation ends in two day - it's our last chance to get as many people mobilised as possible. So tweet it, Facebook, blog it, beat your friends and family around the head with it until they give in!!! And if you want to repost to your own journal (and please feel free to edit), here's an ever-so helpful button

Sword and Shield [Chapter 6: Seeing Red]

Count D
Title: Sword and Shield
Series: Naruto and Hunter x Hunter crossover

Pairing: Eventual Sasuke/Kurapika
Rating: 18+ overall; this chapter 16+
Warnings For This Chapter: Graphic violence, non-graphic violence, more OCs meeting untimely demises, Kabuto and Orochimaru still not getting Kurapika's pronouns right except to humor Sasuke (see Note 4), and Kurapika getting triggered and entering an altered state of consciousness(moderate spoiler) that's not entirely attributable to just PTSD. Also, it is very late and I'm a third asleep posting this, so I might have missed something.

Notes:This gets longCollapse )

You go for the face a lot. Is that something you normally do, or are you just jealous of my good looks?Collapse )
Count D
Pairing: Eventual Sasuke/Kurapika
Rating: 18+ overall; this chapter E for Everyone.
Warnings For This Chapter: None that I caught at this hour.


Will anyone mind if some of these training posts get damaged?Collapse )

Because I have to inflict it on someone.

Here's their next move: The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, would obliterate any semblance of online privacy in the United States.

And CISPA would provide a victory for content owners who were shell-shocked by the unprecedented outpouring of activism in opposition to SOPA and Internet censorship.

The House of Representatives is planning to take up CISPA later this month. Click here to ask your lawmakers to oppose it.

SOPA was pushed as a remedy to the supposed economic threat of online piracy -- but economic fear-mongering didn't quite do the trick.

So those concerned about copyright are engaging in sleight of hand, appending their legislation to a bill that most Americans will assume is about keeping them safe from bad guys.

This so-called cyber security bill aims to prevent theft of "government information" and "intellectual property" and could let ISPs block your access to websites -- or the whole Internet.

Don't let them push this back-door SOPA. Click here to demand that your lawmakers oppose CISPA.

CISPA also encourages companies to share information about you with the government and other corporations.

That data could then be used for just about anything -- from prosecuting crimes to ad placements.

And perhaps worst of all, CISPA supercedes all other online privacy protections.

Please click here to urge your lawmakers to oppose CISPA when it comes up for a vote this month.

Thanks for fighting for the Internet.

Please repost this? I have never begged for one of my posts to be boosted. I am just so worried for my friends and want you to know.

According to this article, dated March 15, 2012:
http://www.digitaltrends.com/webnews/major-isps-turn-into-copyright-police-by-july-says-riaa/

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox news confirms this:

Edit: I'm also going to add that PeerBlock might be another program to look into. You can download it here.
