What a slacker


Wow, its been awhile. I am alive and well and now have a home, job and a computer. Don't think i will be getting back into fandom anytime soon. But I wanted to say hey.

And that I missed all you guys.
bang! bang!

I am okay with being an ass.

This month I have lost a lot of my basic ability to deal with most bullshit without taking a person down.

I went out to the bars. Sober. Stayed that way, which is never a good thing for me when dealing with everyone else around me being drunk.

Dear Storyfinders + Writers,

Thank you Storyfinders. Thank you for your help. Thank you for your love and enthusiasm over the fandoms and fic. Thank you for all your hard work over the years, finding beloved fic that people thought were lost to them forever for lack of a title or author. Thank you for helping me find fic in the many different comms out there, in as many different fandoms.

Thank you Writers. Thank you for creating wonderful story's. Thank you for sharing them with me. Thank you for putting yourself out there, doing different things with plots, characters, kinks, settings and new formats in with fic is written. Thank you for the many hours of enjoyment that I get from your works.

Thank you.

All of you.
Sulu doesn't give a shit


I have one now. A tublr page all my own. Which I think I will be using for random little doodle postings and what not. Because I have a lot of them, but I don't post them here since. I don't know, feel weird about spamming my flist with them so just never do? And random life updates. Yes.

Still Spaggel on Tumblr.

That is all.

Triggers and Warnings

I believe in Warnings, I believe in large general warnings, common warnings. Rape, Abuse, Death, Violence. I think they are a great tool for people to use to get around fandom without personal mishap.

I believe in Descriptions. Sex pollen, rimming, fisting, mpreg, S&M,etc. They too are great tools to help people with triggers be able to navigate fandom or know that even though there is a general warning, having that extra description lets them know that hey, I can or now really cannot read this. They are a great tool for people with squicks too.

I believe in Choose Not To Warn. An author has the right to state that they are not putting any warnings on even though triggers and squick my be involved. They are not saying this is a clean fic/vid/art work, they are saying I am not warning, this is a tool to let you know that all your triggers might be in this.

Because I believe in Warnings and Descriptions, that I love them, I also know that they are not always accurate. They cannot be all encompassing because everyone is so very different. Every cause of trauma is different, it leaves different impressions and people have to deal with them differently. Not every trigger is known and accounted for. Not every trigger trauma related. Some are very different, some are very common and some people just would not think of.

When people do or do not warn it is not out of spite or to cause harm. Having Warnings and Descriptions are a courtesy, they are a choice, a tool, not a moral obligation, towards other fans to help them.
