Internet Neutrality

Sadly I lack the ability to post the icon and I doubt anyone is still connected to my journal feed but I still believe a stand should be taken on this. Even if no one hears it.

The Internet and World Wide Web are for everyone. Sir Tim Berners Lee didn't create the web for free for decent access to it to be restricted to the rich. For many of us the Internet is a valuable lifeline so I wish to stand with my fellow net users of the US in objecting to this potential elitism of what is currently a mostly democratic and free at point of delivery system! For better or worse at times (hacked photos anyone?) but it shouldn't be for sale.

You can't stop the signal. Or at least you shouldn't be able to.

My Fic: What's Up, Pussycat?

Title: What's Up, Pussycat?
Rating: G
Genre: Crack Fic, Humour
Warnings: None
Spoilers/Stage Set: Season 3, very brief reference to SG1 episode, "Threads", even briefer Red Dwarf reference, episode "DNA" (no, not that one!)

Summary: Written for the prompt on rodneymckay_gen: What I would like: Rodney is a cat (happy for him to be a domestic cat or something wilder and bigger, like a cheetah or whatever).

Disclaimer: I don't own Stargate: Atlantis or Stargate SG1, Red Dwarf terminology or Tom Jone's songs, am not connected with any of these in any way and am getting nothing out of this, apart from trying to create a fic-shaped present off a prompt! I only own the story below.

Author's Note: Written in an attempt to string together some images I had in my head of a Rodney-cat! Yes, lame title is lame. Am open to suggestions as I only realised I had no title at 02:30 on the day of the submission deadline and all creativity had just died! Hope leesa_perrie likes this, I tried my best!

My Fic: Letters from the Land of the Blind

Title: Letters from the Land of the Blind (or A Real Betty Boop Operation)
Rating: G
Genre: Episode Related, Humour
Warnings: None
Spoilers/Stage Set: Season 4, "Tabula Rasa"

Summary: Some days Sam really doesn't want to hit the "Send" button.

Disclaimer: I don't own Stargate: Atlantis, am not connected in any way and am getting nothing out of this, apart from creative satisfaction! I only own the story below.

Author's Note: Subtitled due to not being able to resist title idea (see comments below). Of course, I couldn't have thought of it any time in the year between writing and posting it!

Fic Rec: Sailor's Delight

Title: Sailor's Delight
Author: general jinjur
Rating: R
Genre: Post-apocalypse, SGA/SG1/Buffy/Night of the Comet crossover
Warnings: Apocalypse, Major Character Death, Adult themes
Spoilers/Stage Set: Season 3 SGA (with some messing with event order) and post end of series Buffy

Summary: No author summary
Word Count: approx. 23,000 words
Additional notes: Making no guarantees about genres of author's other works!

My summary: Dawn wakes to find herself apparently alone in the world until she rescues a woman called Jeannie Miller from a vampire!

Why recced: An excellent adventure story that manages incredibly well to make this a believable road trip story and doesn't go for the easy outs at any point. I also love the characterisation of both Dawn and Jeannie. Neither of them gets short changed here! A sadly under recced story!

My Fic: Life

Title: Life
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Angst and Drama
Warnings: None
Spoilers/Stage Set: Tag for "The Last Man", Season 4

Additional Notes: Inspired by events of "The Last Man" and "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi

Disclaimer: I don't own Stargate: Atlantis or anything to do with Bon Jovi. I'm just borrowing and will put them back exactly where I found then when I'm finished! I only own the story below.

First fic rec of many!

I've started reccing fic over on http://rodneymckay-gen.livejournal.com/

Which is great! But I don't want to just rec no pairing, Rodney-involved fic. Plus there will be less of the staples that I suspect everyone in the SGA fandom knows once they've been around for awhile.

Title: Woven Together, Seamless
Author: sholio
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Spoilers/Stage Set: Set mid to late Season 4, before "Kindred"

A stand-out fic for several different reasons.

Firstly sheer teamy goodness. The interaction between the four of them is just beautiful.

Secondly the world built for this is utterly magnificent. A prime example of how to create an interesting society without going into endless exposition.

Thirdly it is packed with wonderful, memorable lines and images. Prime amongst them, for me, is, "Leaning over Rodney, who made unhappy squashed-physicist noises" or, "Rodney went on, softer, his bravado wilting like a punctured balloon", which is a lovely capturing of when Rodney's insecurities kick in.

Warning: may cause warm, fuzzy feelings!
