Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers, Peggy Carter
Rating: G/K
Word Count: 1,092
Summary: The serum changed Steve Rogers in many ways, and not all of the changes were instantaneous.
Warnings: Spoilers for Captain America: The First Avenger. Death of characters who did actually die in the movie. Uneven emotional tone?

Notes: Haha I wrote this and posted it to AO3 OVER A YEAR AGO and then got really busy and never got around to crossposting to LJ. It was a birthday present for the lovely sirona, who will always be my favorite. Beta'd by the lovely regonym who will also always be my favorite.

I am a person without physical disabilities attempting to write about what it's like to have physical disabilities, or rather, what it's like when they suddenly go away. I've done my best, but if I've fucked something up in a way that is actively offensive, please let me know.

This is a pretty comprehensive round-up of every medical condition Steve may or may not have had, with sources. Pretty much every source contradicts every other source, so I feel pretty justified in just cherrypicking the ones I want to explore and to hell with being canonically consistent.

This is pure silliness, just so you know.

PSA: Twitter and other sites down due to DDOS attack [Oct. 21st, 2016|09:05 am]

HEY LOOK, ANGELA'S ON LIVEJOURNAL, because Twitter is down for me and I have no other way to communicate with the world.

A company called Dyn, which manages website domains and routes internet traffic, is experiencing a series of DDOS attacks, and many popular websites are experiencing outages in certain areas. Sites include Twitter, Etsy, Github, Vox, Spotify, Airbnb, Netflix, and Reddit. And I've heard maybe Amazon? The first attack primarily affected the U.S. East Coast and parts of Europe. Dyn restored service temporarily, but this was followed by a second attack. ETA: This second attack seems to mostly be affecting U.S. West Coast and Hawai‘i.

Here's a story on CNN Money for reference.

So if you can't access those or other sites, or if certain friends seemed to have vanished from the interwebs, that's why.

For me here in Hilo, Twitter is down entirely; I can reach the Netflix home page but can't play any video; I was able to reach the home pages of Amazon, Reddit, and Spotify but didn't check further.

Of course the two sites on that list that I use regularly are down and all the rest seem to be fine. :P

I'll be suffering without Twitter today. I mean, I'll be WAY more productive at the lab, but also BORED OUT OF MY MIND, and where will I faff about things like attacking my mother first thing in the morning with a terrible physics joke? Or squee about Mike Colter (Luke Cage) being the guest on last night's The Daily Show? Because eeeeeee~, Mike Colter!!

Anyway, long time no see, LJ, or rather, I'm here all the time, lurking, I just so rarely post anymore. I keep meaning to post a selection of photos from my adventures over the last several months, or crosspost a short fic I wrote in August of LAST YEAR but... ugggghhh so busy I can't even tell you. TT__TT

Speaking of which I need to finish breakfast and run my mother to the airport. Ta, LJ, peace out.

ETA2: For the first time since I woke up almost 4 hours ago I can access Twitter and Netflix again. Yaaaaaaay! Hopefully it holds.

ETA3: According to Breaking News Feed @pzf, the websites affected by the DDOS attack are Twitter, Amazon, CNN, Reddit, NYTimes, PayPal, Spotify, Soundcloud, Airbnb, HBO, Netflix, Etsy, Github, and Vox. Yikes!

I know you have no idea what I'm on about nor do you care, but I just need a place to preserve things for posterity, and plurk is not great for that.

So, for some context: my Steve and his traveling companions, Beckett and Rydia, a.k.a Team Too Dumb To Live, made themselves horrendously ill burning furniture in one of the houses. This is apparently due to some sort of noxious death mold, but they didn't know that at the time, their first thought was THE FURNITURE IS POISON BECAUSE NORFINBURY IS A SADISTIC HELLHOLE (reasonable assumption). ...And when I say tremendously ill, I mean coughing, dizziness, nausea, and coughing up black goo for a solid week.

So, on the one hand, Team Too Dumb To Live. On the other hand, Dr. Clayton Epps, professional worry-wort, earnestly trying to keep his fellow prisoners healthy and safe. And the situation they're all currently in, which just gets funnier and funnier the more I think about it.

So. Steve, Beckett, and Rydia make themselves horribly ill burning furniture.

Clayton: "Stay here and rest, I'll go get food!"

Beckett: *Clayton doesn't even know he's sick, Beckett is actively hiding from him in another house because he was just horribly sick a few days ago and he's embarrassed*

Steve, Beckett, and Rydia: *NOT RESTING, go for a hike in a blizzard and BURN MORE FURNITURE, for science! (Steve is the ringleader)*

Beckett: *goes back to hiding, soon will have nothing to eat but herbal tea*

Rydia: *gets lost in the blizzard and ends up a full day's travel in the wrong direction in the funeral home, handcuffed to a toilet and made to endure a night of horrors while trying to chew her hand off*

Clayton: cMWalaa.gif

I just. I'm so sorry, Clayton. So sorry. XD

Also, we had an extensive plurk conversation about pee. A highlight: at least one of the characters is peeing into a bottle and using it as a hot water bottle to keep warm.

...I cannot tell you how much I love this game and these players. ♥_♥

In other news, have a barrel organ playing Smooth Criminal.

So, I failed out of mini-wrimo pretty quickly. When I signed up in October, I didn't know I was about to jump back into RPing, and my new game started on the same day and... yeah, I've basically had no interest in anything else. And technically it's writing, I'm writing so much every day in the game, but... RPing is not what I need help with. Mini-wrimo is supposed to help me with my prose fiction projects, and it's not doing that for me this year. I can't even bring myself to care, because oh my god this game is too much fun, why do anything else, ANYTHING. ELSE.

In RL stuff, beginning of the month was also my second anniversary with Forrest. We did a nice little day trip to Makalawena, which is a GORGEOUS but hard to get to beach in Kona. The following weekend we had a little getaway to a cabin in Kalopa State Park.

Last weekend was crazy busy with dancing, climaxing with THE Glenn Miller Orchestra and all of us Hep Cats showing up in force to teach and perform and be awesome on the dance floor. I got all dolled up in my new red dress and did my hairs and make-up all period and wore my cute vintage-style dance shoes and felt SO FABULOUS. Look! (I'm on the left.) And look again!

Again, mostly my energies have been wrapped up in Snowblind. I am having hella fun, these people are my people, by which I mean TERRIBLE PEOPLE, I've never felt so warmly welcomed so quickly in a game, and I'm constantly crying laughing in the Snowblind plurks, everything is shame boners and severed toes and how many snowbos can we cram into the shower at once, and also how can I murder my character today?

Today what had me crying laughing was this plurk thread; I've filed all the serial numbers off and done some minor editing and I hope they don't mind me reposting this without permission, but.

Honestly, this needs to be saved for posterity.Collapse )

So anyway, that's my life lately. What up, nerds?

Getting more and more excited about SnowblindRPG. Reservations open tomorrow, and applications open November 1. I am so READY. In my soul, anyway; I feel like I finally have a good handle on all the rules and gameplay. Now I'm like, AAAAAAAHHH. NEED TO MAKE ICONS. NEED TO WRITE MY APPLICATION. AAAAAAHHHH. Making icons will be interesting, I always used to foist that off on Lauren-of-the-Photoshop-skills, but she's not in this game, so I guess I'm probably on my own. Also, Steve is my first not-animated character? Live-action is harder to screencap, omg.

Snowblind thoughtfully supplies a test drive meme that you can use for the roleplay sample section of the application, so I let Steve loose in there. And oh my god, I'm already having so much fun.

-This thread with Grey from Snowpiercer ...So there's this thing where all of the doors in Norfinbury seal at sunset, and if you don't make it inside before that happens, you freeze to death in the night. YES, THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME IT IS. So Grey gets stuck outside and he and Steve have a long (mostly text-based) conversation on their tablets while Grey slowly succumbs to hypothermia and Steve keeps him company, knowing there's nothing else he can do for him. IT'S SUPER CHEERFUL. *lying face down on the floor, weeping* Grey's mun is awesome, we might play together more even if she doesn't end up applying.
-This thread with Koriand'r. Dear god but I love me some Starfire. We're only 25 comments in and they're snuggling by the fire and Steve's already been slightly traumatized by too much breast exposure and there was a slightly dub-con snogging (Kori pulled her 'what, I'm only kissing you because I want to learn French, I get absolutely nothing else out of this, I swear' schtick) and Steve doesn't know WHAT the heck just happened and now he's trying to flirt and it's a fucking trainwreck. I'm enjoying this so much.
-This Cecil Palmer of Night Vale who is EXCELLENT, and who is also dying slowly of hypothermia, and Steve is trying to be there for him but Cecil is FREAKING HIM THE HELL OUT, oh god I cackle out loud every time the thread updates.

And there's Jim from Treasure Planet, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy, Ava from the MCU spin-off novel Forever Red, Roy Mustang, and Dick Grayson! :D

Seriously can't wait to jump into the game. Is gonna be fuuuuuuunnn! Steve's gonna be so miserablllllllllle! >:D

Well, holy shit, I haven't posted here since July.

Things have been happening. I went to Colorado for a family reunion and Rocky Mountain hiking in July, Iowa for a friend's wedding in September, presented at and attended the Hawaii Conservation Conference in August, and presented my thesis proposal to my thesis committee in September.

Yesterday I had a lovely day's outing with Forrest and ten of our friends to Pololū Valley; we got thoroughly muddy, sweaty, and mosquito-bitten hiking through a jungle for several hours, but then we got to swim under a waterfall and pick ‘ulu from the trees to cook in a fire and stuff our faces with. On the hike back we swung like Tarzan across a small gully using the viney aerial roots of a banyan tree and snacked on sprouted coconut. Later we visited Forrest's favorite coconut tree and he cut us down some fat young coconuts, and I drank the largest, sweetest coconut ever before eating the spoon-meat. It was an AWESOME day.

On the way back, the rear window of the car I was in abruptly shattered, showering me with tempered glass, but that's neither here nor there. (No one was hurt.)

So those are the highlights. Mostly I've been very bored. I don't have classes anymore, and I do poorly with large stretches of unstructured time. Boredom, depression, loss of efficiency, loss of energy, loss of creativity. Part of why I haven't had much to say here. Been feeling a little lonely, too. Miss the strong feeling of community I've had online in the past.

I'm working on addressing these things. I'm trying to make an effort to reach out to friends, start conversations, hang out as best we can when we're thousands of miles apart. And in a blast to the past, I'm planning to apply to an online fandom RP called Snowblind. RP has been a good source of community and creativity for me in the past; it's also been a distraction, but honestly I'm at peak inefficiency already so I can only go up from here. My other source of community historically was LJ comms, but all my comms have pretty much shriveled up and died. Anybody know any good ones that might be in line with my interests?

I am looking forward to mini_wrimo. It didn't make me any friends last year, but it was great for my writing. Y'all should join us! All the accomplishment feels of NaNoWriMo for the low, low price of a 100 word daily minimum. Look, a banner!

mini_wrimo on LiveJournal      ||    mini_wrimo on Dreamwidth

I'm also job searching, uggggggggggghhh. (Very few things are more distasteful to me than the entire process of searching for jobs, applying, interviewing—if you get that far—waiting around to hear stuff, etc. Someone just give me work, plzkthx.) Looking for part-time work so I can have the moneys and a change of pace while also working on my thesis. I am making about $55-$70 a week teaching dance, which is not bad for a hobby, but I'll need a bit more if I don't want to drain my accounts. Wish me luck.

Those of you who post, I do see your posts; I'm still an unstoppable lurker. To all of you and to those of you I haven't heard from in a while—I think of you, and hope you are well.

Today I got paid $16/hour and free dinner to drive a bunch of NYU students around in a van. And like, see the Gemini North telescope control room, and go up to Mauna Kea summit, which are things I would do for free.

And it was just. Perfect. To slowly climb the switchbacks while the sunlight turns golden high on the cinder cones, with the whole earth and a sea of clouds dropping away beneath us and Mauna Loa growing larger and impossibly larger to the south, and the peak of Hualalai erupting into view, then Haleakalā—"Look, there's Maui!" "Whaaaaaaat, no way!"—and pulling over at the top with the swollen, luminous full moon rising just above the limb of the summit cone in the east, and the observatories gleaming like jewels in the glory of the sun to the west, and the kids gasping at the view and laughing at the way the thin air makes their heads spin, and the sky going red and indigo, and Venus, then Jupiter, then Regulus igniting above the horizon, and driving down in the dark with the full moon too bright to look at, casting shadows and illuminating objects in color vision, the sea of clouds glowing nearly as bright, the sky black and starry and the hulk of Mauna Loa even blacker, and the smudge of glowing orange cast by Kīlauea's lava against the clouds. And parking at 9000 feet with the moon too too bright but still with so much hanging above us in the sky, the Big Dipper and Polaris, Scorpius about to devour Saturn, and taking them to see the silverswords gleaming ghostly alien in the moonlight, tall flowering stalks standing silent shadowed sentinels. All the kids lying on their backs, shouting in astonishment as meteor after meteor slash across the sky, Timo asking, "Well, it's getting late, should we go?" And one girl yelling, "Noooooooo, I'm going to live here, I want to stay on this mountain forever!!"

Yeah, girl. I know exactly how you feel.

Stole this Seven Lines meme from kristen999, and like her I wasn't tagged, I was just like, "COOL, I TOTALLY HAVE AT LEAST ONE WIP THAT IS AT LEAST SEVEN PAGES LONG, SIGN ME UP."

Go to page seven (or seventy-seven) of your WIP and select seven lines to post. Then you tag seven other people to play.

I have three fics that qualify; this is from my MCU/X-Men crossover in which Charles Xavier and Tony Stark are young scientists with important roles in Project Rebirth during WWII and are also bisexual bffs. I will probably never finish this, sob. But I'm trying!

~ ~ ~

Tony threw his hands up in disgust. “Okay, that's it,” he declared, shoving Charles towards the door and ignoring his half-hearted protests, “I'm calling a time-out, you and I are going out on the town—” he wrinkled his nose, “—Correction, you are taking a shower, then you and I are going out on the town, we'll go to the Expo, it'll be fun, we'll eat some cotton candy and teach some pretty girls how to dance and then you're going to sleep for about eighteen hours, okay?”

“This seems like a good time to remind you of all the times you refused to let me drag you from the lab—”

“Shut up. Hypocrisy is the very best medicine.”

“What does that even mean?” Charles rubbed at his tired eyes and blinked at the blurry hallways Tony was steering him through. “...What Expo is this you're talking about?”

“Oh my God,” said Tony.

~ ~ ~

That's probably seven-ish.

I'm... not even gonna bother tagging anyone specific, because I'm a rebel and I hate rules. If you have a WIP with at least 7 pages and think this looks nifty, assume I've tagged you!

Notes: Posted on AO3 almost two months ago; finally getting around to posting on LJ.

...So when I saw the official picture of Jason Momoa as Aquaman I got REALLY EXCITED, OKAY? I want to know everything about Hawaiian Aquaman, don't you?

Aquaman comics canon is a mess depending on which version of Earth you're working with, and this is movie-verse, and Aquaman is Hawaiian, so I basically just took what I wanted and smashed it all together messily and cackled a lot, I THUMB MY NOSE AT YOU, COMICS CANON.

Other inspiration taken from Hawaiian mythology, Hawai‘i in general, and Jason's own mixed-racial background and the accomplished Hawaiian watermen in his family.

"Go forth and tell the story" is the translation I like best for "Ha‘ina ‘ia mai ana ka puana," a phrase sung at the beginning of the last verse of songs written in the traditional Hawaiian style.

"He inoa no" is a dedication used in name chants, generally for royalty or gods. Roughly "in the name of" or "in honor of".

More translations in the end notes.

This story is un-beta'd.

Everyone's seen the picture of Jason Momoa's Aquaman that just came out, right? No?



Ugggghhh, I can't go on about this enough. I thought Momoa was inspired casting when I first heard of it, but actually seeing it I am just ;ahdlfhas;kdlfja. LOOK AT HIM. LOOK AT THOSE TATTOOS.

Also, credit to Snyder where credit is due. Aquaman is as big a deal in his universe as any of the Avengers are in Marvel. And Snyder took an A-list superhero who is blond and white and reimagined him as Polynesian. He gave us a Polynesian superhero, THIS IS SO IMPORTANT.

I'm a bit wary of investing myself emotionally in the upcoming DC film franchise, since Man Of Steel was such a disappointment, but I am SO EXCITED to see Momoa's Aquaman. I AM MORE EXCITED TO SEE AQUAMAN THAN I AM TO SEE BATMAN, WHO AM I, WHAT REALITY IS THIS. (Between being excited about Aquaman and being excited about the Penguin, DC on-screen properties have me so confused about life right now.)

Also, give me all of the fanart of Emilia Clarke as badass Sea-Khaleesi Mera. I need this so bad. And give me all the fanfic of Jason Momoa!Aquaman, and quickly, before movie canon ruins everything.

...Actually, I may have that last bit covered. I've already done the groundwork for an origin story based on Aquaman's Silver Age continuity and Momoa's own half-Hawaiian background and also Hawaiian mythology and history. I'm about to go to the field for the weekend, so I very well may come back with a completed story.

So for purposes of my thesis I'm curled up in bed reading books and papers on songbird vocalization, attempting to come up with a satisfactory definition of the difference between a song and a call. The problem is, this is biology, and our petty human definitions are very frequently NOT satisfactory, so this has only led to me having a crazy-eyed meltdown on Twitter.

Thought I would share the Storify, for anyone who needs a laugh. Or a cautionary tale.

Biology is the worst science.

This meme post brought to you by hardboiledbaby and the letter "B".

Something I hate: Bigotry.

Something I love: Do I have to pick just one? Blues dancing. Backpacking. Bacon. Bleu cheese. Brie. Baked brie ha ha most of these are foods. #aboutme

Somewhere I've been: Bulgaria! I visited my darling sirona_gs (and her grandmother) and also a bat-researcher friend and it was all very excellent.

Somewhere I'd like to go: Oooooh, let's see... Barcelona! Partly because I'd like to go to Spain as part of my Go To All The Places of My Ancestry bucket list, and also because the Sagrada Familia is there and oh my goddddddd I would like to see it!

Someone I know: b_c_draygon, boko, and burned_phoenix, my three LJ B-friends that I know by way of completely different means. Also Becca, a college friend whom I miss dearly. And Baby, the LJ friend who tagged me!

A film I like: Is anybody surprised that my brain went straight to Batman. Batman, Batman Returns, and Batman Begins are all good ones. *peeks at my DVD shelf* Ooh! Brave! Brotherhood of the Wolf! Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid!

If you want to play, leave a comment and I'll give you a letter!

Closing time, every new beginning is some other beginning's end... [Feb. 3rd, 2015|08:48 pm]

I don't post a lot of real journal-y type posts anymore, but this evening was just a really nice one. It was a blazer of a hot day, and once Forrest was done with work and fiddling with his truck and fiddling with his friend's truck, he came to get me and we raced the setting sun to King's Landing. It beat us, but we found a good spot to sit on the rocks and drink Dos Equis and watch the waves roll in and throw froth and spray in the air while the light slowly changed colors and faded over Mauna Kea. It looked kinda like this. (As you can see, I've stopped even trying to pretend I'm not smug on Twitter.) Venus was high in the sky to the west and Forrest gave me a nudge with his elbow, and the moon was rising fat and yellow through the trees behind us. And then when the tide came to get us we left and drove back in the deepening dark with nostalgic 90's alt-rock on the radio and the full moon glaring like a spotlight, Jupiter hanging next to it, and when we got back Forrest blackened some tuna and we drank more beer and laughed over dinner with friends and it was all just very nice, you know?
