I just now remembered I should have put up the new episode for the SGA Rewatch *facepalm*

I've decided I don't like having a schedule that bounces all over the place. I forget fewer things when I work the same days every week and can set up a routine.

If dreamwidth isn't your cup of tea, it's also being held on livejournal! We'd love it if you participated and made this fest truly great :)

Who Wakes As The World Sleeps (31707 words) by nagi_schwarz
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis, Westworld (TV), Stargate Universe
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Characters: Rodney McKay, John Sheppard, Angela (Westworld), Teddy Flood, Clementine Pennyfeather, Maeve Millay, Matthew Scott, Tamara "TJ" Johansen, Vanessa James, Ronald Greer, Duo Maxwell, Chang Wufei, Original Female Character(s), Maeve Millay's Daughter, Charlotte Hale, Original Male Character(s)
Additional Tags: Canon-Typical Violence, Stealth Crossover
Series: Part 78 of Comment Fic 2017
Summary:

After Atlantis lands in the Bay, John and Rodney are sent away from the city while the IOA dithers about what to do with it. They're given a mission to beta-test a new training environment for SGC recruits. They get to spend a couple of days' leave, then undergo the training mission, at some sort of virtual reality theme park run by a corporation called Delos. Rodney probably should have read the briefing memo more closely.

--

You don't have to watch Westworld to read this. John & Rodney are so great in it - there's skinny dipping and water wrestling ;) There are some intense, violent scenes, but no rape and all "our" guys get out alive. But it's so good, and judging by the comments/kudos, under appreciated.

I know it's late, but I do hope everyone had a really good holiday - and happy new year!

I've been struggling a lot lately. I think I've reach a point of over-saturation. Political news is pretty much always negative these days and to say it's bringing me down is putting it lightly. I have no motivation to do anything these days except read and watch things - passive activities, basically. My work schedule has changed and it's really throwing me off, too. I'm working 6 days in a row right now (today was day 4), though half of them were short 4.5 hour shifts. But the half shifts were at weird times, so now my inner clock is confused, lol.

Things haven't been all bad. I'd like to thank [personal profile] otherearths_outthere, [personal profile] mific, [personal profile] librarychick_94, [personal profile] brumeier , and anyone else who donated some money so my dog can get her annual checkup (and thus renew her food prescription). I can't say my dog was as happy about it as I was (she's been avoiding everyone all day, poor dog. We've grievously betrayed her by taking her to That Place). I had enough left over to buy her a bag of dog food too, which was a weight off my mind.

I also want to thank everyone who sent a Christmas card. It really cheered me up to come home from a crappy day at work to open them up and admire how pretty they are :)

Hi

I'm looking for a fic that I'm pretty sure was mcshep. One of them, Rodney had a symbiote, probably Tok'ra. I'm a little fuzzy on the details but the one thing I remember was that Rodney put the symbiote in John's head for some reason  and they both though that Rodney was dead. I think the story resolved with them sharing the symbiote back and forth between them.  Any ideas?

I went to the vet today to get my dog her food. She has a digestive condition, so we have prescription dog food for her. I was told I can't buy anymore dog food until she gets her yearly checkup done (to renew the prescription), and it's going to cost $125.

Haaaa, I so do not have $125. Rent alone is going to be $320 out of my $500 check.

My mom's been hospitalized twice the past couple months. She has COPD and kept having flare ups. They sent her home with oxygen tanks this time, and she's been fine so far.

Work is incredibly stressful. It's the holiday season and they never schedule me any help. But things die WAY down in January, so I just have to get there. Of course, I've got to work 6 days in a row before I get there, but I'm soooo close. SOON.

All the McShep fic being posted for sga_santa is making me sooo happy :D

Hey guys, I just want to remind everyone we're doing a rewatch on [community profile] sga_squee :) One episode per week, you leave a comment with your thoughts, meta, etc. We started off strong, but participation has been trailing off. Not that I want to guilt anyone into participating, but I just thought I'd put out a reminder~

You know I love fic where John pines and Rodney is straight (or at least thinks he is before John), but where is my pining!rodney and/or bisexual!Rodney fic? It is much, much harder to find.

Signal Boosted from melagan, who copypasted from shaenie

This is a copy of her original post that you can find here

My friends-- even if you only use the net to look up recipes, check Facebook, read your email, find a new knitting pattern, shop on Amazon.com... even if this is all you do...
They want to make you pay for all of those things, the way they make you pay for cable channels. They way they make you pay for early boarding on the plane. The way they make you pay for anything that is not the mediocre norm.


Fight the good fight! The Internet should be free! Do not allow them to tell you how much and what addresses you are allowed to surf.
DAMN THE MAN! FIGHT THE EMPIRE!
But in all seriousness... every penny counts now. If you still believe in free access to the amazing plethora of information on the web, without paying even more for the chance to access the sites each provider decides you are allowed to pay to access... THEN LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!
VOTE FOR NET NEUTRALITY! VOTE FOR YOUR RIGHT TO ACCESS ALL THE INFORMATION OUT THERE! NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO STIFLE ACCESS TO LEARNING, TO FACTS, TO HISTORY, TO ART, TO EVERYTHING!
PLEASE!! Stand up for Net Neutrality so there are more things to stand up for tomorrow.
----------------------------------------
-----
CONGRATULATIONS everybody! We only have 5 days to fight the FCC & the repeal of #NetNeutrality! ⚡️
Thanks to John Oliver there's a SUPER easy way to do this
If net neutrality goes away, our Internet bills go up and we give power to companies like Comcast and Spectrum to limit our access to the internet and its content.
Here's what you can do - takes less than a minute.
1. Go to gofccyourself.com
(the shortcut John Oliver made to the hard-to-find FCC comment page)
2. Find the 17-108 link (Restoring Internet Freedom)
2. Click on "express" next to it.
3. Be sure to hit "ENTER" on your keyboard after you put in your name & info so it registers.
4. In the comment section write, "I strongly support net neutrality backed by Title 2 oversight of ISPs."
5. Click to submit, done. - Make sure you hit submit at the end!
**Copy and paste this into your own status update!**
If you don't think Net Neutrality is a big deal, just look at the lobbyists and corporations in support of abolishing it. If you think your ISP has your best interests at heart, do nothing. If, however, the Internet should be open and free from outside influence and tampering, take the roughly 60 seconds required to express your opinion to the FCC!

I'm trying to be better about linking interesting McShep tumblr posts, so have a good post:

"Petition to have John refer to Rodney in his offworld gear as boot bait and for Rodney to go crazy not knowing what it means."
