[podfic] The Evil Devil Child and the Perfect Gift read by [livejournal.com profile] semperfiona, written by [livejournal.com profile] who_la_hoop (Albus/Scorpius, Al/Scorpius/Draco, Harry/Scorpius, Harry/Draco | NC-17 | 1:50:27 hours)
Summary: When Scorpius Malfoy – Legilimens-extraordinaire, perfect son and all-round kinky little bastard – discovers that his father harbours a certain fantasy involving Harry Potter, a submissive attitude and a priceless antique dining table, he sets out to make his father's dreams come true. And if succeeding in his mission involves putting up with a naked, willing Albus Severus? Well, that's a price that Scorpius will just have to pay.

Cross-posting the comments I left @ [community profile] stuckyanonymous. :)

- Connectivity Error by bopeep, illustrated by curious_werewolf (Androids AU, Cyberpunk AU, Hackers AU)
Steve Rogers is falling apart, and together with best friend and fellow freelance hacker Bucky Barnes he intends to fight the injustices of the cyber plane and make a little money doing it in order to fix up the literal and figurative broken pieces that make up their lives. When solicited by SHIELD to take on a dangerous mission, Steve and Bucky find the hard way that they don't exactly have nothing to lose.

- Into That Good Night by Nonymos (Interstellar AU)
Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world's end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what's left of mankind towards the exit.
But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past.

- Poppies in the Field by kaasknot (Androids AU, Cyberpunk AU)
Wherein Bucky is a severely agoraphobic combat veteran, and Steve is the android he buys out of loneliness.

- The Future Started Yesterday by monicawoe (Dystopia AU)
In 2011, the final S.H.I.E.L.D expedition searching for Steve Rogers found nothing.
In 2014, Hydra completed Project Insight and launched three armed helicarriers, killing millions.
In 2028, Tony Stark was killed *
In 2043, the Winter Soldier was decommissioned after 157 successful missions.
In 2111, Steve Rogers was found.

- for the ashes of his fathers (and the kingdoms of his gods) by LadyNimrodel, graphics by noncorporealform (Post-Apocalypse AU - Oblivion AU)
Steve and Natasha are an effective team. They work for Shield's Control Station, built after the planet was destroyed in the war with the Scavs. They are left on a broken and barren planet to keep the drones running that protect the hydra rigs, which collect precious water for what's left of humanity, now living in a colony on one of Saturn's moons.
What Steve knows is this: the Scav attacks are getting worse, even though they lost the war nearly fifty years ago. In two weeks he and Natasha are leaving to join the rest of humanity. And that neither of them want to leave earth.
What he doesn't know is why the Scavs are attacking again, why everything Control tells them feels wrong, and why he keeps dreaming of a man with grey-blue eyes and a familiar smile and who Steve doesn't remember.

- Summer Don't Own Me No More by Nonymos, illustrated by alby_mangroves (Solarpunk AU - Dystopia AU)
Bucky Barnes, weary soldier, illegal immigrant, sarcastic sex worker. Steve Rogers, miracle of science, lonely man, disillusioned cop. Both of them on a collision course in this brave new world, like that's not gonna end in sex and explosions.

- From Tralfamadore, With Love by newsbypostcard, illustrated by icoulddothisallday (Time Travel AU)
In 2018, Steve, Sam, and Bucky embark on a mission to explore a Hydra-owned warehouse when a kid with mutant powers sends Steve 18 years into the future. After figuring out where (and when) he is, Steve tracks Bucky down in 2036 to find he's become a successful business owner and an impassioned advocate for mutant rights. Steve's just as in love with Bucky as he was when he left, but for Bucky it's been a long 18 years. It's hard to accept when Bucky keeps him at arm's length... but Steve's never met a challenge that he didn't take.
As he gets used to life in 2036 and the flaws in Bucky's idyllic life expose themselves, Steve also has to manage a suspiciously ubiquitous security force, a Brotherhood of Mutants, and old competing loyalties among his aged friends. There's a Bucky in 2018 waiting for him to come home, but if he does that, it means leaving this Bucky behind for a third, unforgivable time. How can he choose?
What's Bucky not saying?
How can he face losing everything -- again?

This is genocide

Sep. 9th, 2017 02:09 am
lokifan: black Converse against a black background (Default)
[personal profile] lokifan
So I’ve been following the situation of the Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, in desultory fashion, for a couple of years. The UN’s said they’re “the most persecuted minority” in the world, and that’s before the current disaster. They’re denied citizenship in Myanmar, even when born there, so they’re stateless, which renders them unable to leave (no passports) or access basic government services including education and healthcare.

And the situation has devolved horribly.

On the 25th of August, Rohingya militants attacked security services, and are still fighting the army. The army has unleashed a horrifying wave of violence in response - it’s unambiguously ethnic cleansing, and has four of the five identifying signs of genocide. The Myanmar army is trying to wipe out the Rohingyas entirely.

They’re burning villages. They’re shooting fleeing civilians en masse and drowning children. The government is refusing to let aid workers through with medicine, food, and water. There have been convulsions of violence before, particularly last year and in 2012, described by the UN as “crimes against humanity”; there was gang rape and torture, murder and disappearances. This is worse.

I know there’s Brexit and Irma and Harvey and the possibility of nuclear war, but we can’t let a million people get swept under the rug. They’re fleeing for their lives into Bangladesh, but the border is technically closed and border guards have refused hundreds of people trying to get out. Bangladesh has called for an end to the violence but it’s not enough. Thousands of people are now trapped in the mountains, their homes burnt behind them, the borders closed to them, the government refusing to let aid workers in and security forces closing in.

I wrote to my MP yesterday asking her to do something about this. The text is under a cut below - it’s not in any way good, really, but it is text you can use. Amnesty International has an article about the situation, with a a petition to sign, and a link to the Twitter of the Commander-in-Chief of Myanmar’s army, and a suggested Tweet. We’ve got to show we care, and that we’re paying attention. Otherwise the Myanmar government will have no incentive to stop this.

short email I wrote to my representative )
