Yeah, we're doing [community profile] kink_bingo stuff, and it's time for dealing with terminology again.
eruthros: kink: a girl showing off her tongue piercing and studded collar (kink: tongue piercing)
I have been having trouble posting lately; I feel like I can't finish anything, or like I can't manage to write coherent sentences. So this is me saying fuck it, and possibly by the end of the post I'll be down to bullet points, but at least I'll be posting something.

So! The [community profile] kink_bingo arbitrary mod prizes are a sort of recs list, but they could never include include all the awesome fanworks that I wanted to give prizes to. So here are some other [community profile] kink_bingo fanworks that I enjoyed, in a wide range of fandoms. (A sad percentage of Mission Read/Listen To/Look At All the Things is spent crossreferencing headers with wikipedia before reading/looking at/listening to, actually. Now I have learned about The Losers! Maybe someday I will even watch it. It could happen.)

[personal profile] oper_1895's bingo. (White Collar, Peter/Neal and Peter/Neal/Elizabeth, all set in the same universe in which Neal is asexual.) What I like )

[personal profile] tristesses's bingo (Start Trek AOS Gaila/Uhura, Harry Potter Cho/Padma, Temeraire Laurence/Tharkay) What I like )

[personal profile] cypher's bingos; she wrote 15 stories this round, so if you're looking for a place to start how about Instinct (Eternal Poison, Rondemion/Logue) or Extra Strength (Last Remnant, Rush/David) or Whole New World (.hack//GU, Kuhn/Silabus). What I like )

[personal profile] busaikko's whole bingo (SGA, John/Rodney, John/Ronon; in the John/Rodney stories John is asexual, in the John/Ronon story Ronon is a trans man) What I like )

[personal profile] gloss's We all got in tune (Middleman, Wendy/Lacey/Noser) and Motherfuckers, quick to kiss (DCU, Dick Grayson/Jason Todd, Nightwing/Robin/Superman) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] blackfic's This is Our Love Story (White Collar, Peter/Elizabeth) What I like )

[personal profile] pocketmouse's Quantum Equilibrium and Little Red Book (Doctor Who, Amy/Rory + Eleven) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] the_deep_magic's multi-fandom writing on the body recs list (several fandoms) What I like )

[personal profile] liodain's bingos (Watchmen, Dan/Rorschach fic and art) What I like )

[livejournal.com profile] igbc's Pierced Through the Heart (Starsky and Hutch, Starsky/Hutch) What I like )

Also if you're looking for even more fanworks, you could check out my kink bingo tag on delicious or thingswithwing's kink bingo tag. (We each only looked at half the things, actually, and then made short lists for each other, so there's a lot of non-overlapping stuff there.)

... in other news, guys, I am down to like eight open fic tabs, all of which are giant epic stories of giantness. Wow. Also I guess I might have to read some of those giant epic stories of giantness or something. Maybe I'll finally read The Hard Prayer! (Leftmost fic tab, open at least eight months. Someday I will read it.)
eruthros: Delenn building the crystal machine in season 1  of B5, captioned "foreshadowing" (B5 - Delenn incredible foreshadowing)
1. Friday night, I didn't have anything to watch after dinner, and [personal profile] cereta has been posting about mid-season-three B5 and making me nostalgic, so I put on 3x09, Point of No Return.

... yeah, I should know better. Especially since this happens every time I watch an episode between the middle of season two and the middle of season three. *claws up from underneath like five episodes in a row* Well, except I skipped Late Delivery from Avalon, because really, jms.

2. Favorite typo seen today: "... and untied the red silk chords."

3. This picture is for [personal profile] thingswithwings, who didn't really believe me when I told her how tall the tomatoes were. The tomatoes are this tall )

4. I have now given out eight hundred [community profile] kink_bingo cards, and T'wings has given some out, too, which is just ... wow. Now I have to make some more (using [personal profile] chagrined's lovely program! zie is still kb mvp!) which is kind of hilarious, because it takes the program like three minutes to make a thousand bingo cards ... but it does them in huge 744 kb bmp files. So then I put them through a photoshop batch processor to convert them to smaller jpgs, which takes like forty-five minutes. This never ceases to amuse me.
eruthros: llamas! (llamas)
... *flops* I just caught up with the last [community profile] kink_bingo signups, and [personal profile] thingswithwings landed and found the internet and therefore I too have a kink bingo card )

But I haven't thought about it because I've been answering comments instead.

I have, however, thought about this robot plushie, and decided that it is pretty adorable but needs a mouth.

eruthros: llamas! (llamas)
*looks at time* *looks at remaining [community profile] kink_bingo card queue* *looks in general direction of [personal profile] thingswithwings who has been stuck in airports* *looks at hands* Yeah, so that's not happening tonight.

In unrelated content I wrote up earlier, I have remembered that I can put hard cooked eggs in salad when I don't want all my protein to be cheese and nuts. I have to rediscover salads every summer, and I've so far gone "oh, marinades!" and "oh, eggs! right!" By August I have usually figured out a routine, and then there aren't enough months of summer left. Eventually I will remember foods like "smoothies" and "cereal" and other warm-weather stuff.

And in other other news, I watched Going Postal and quite enjoyed it. spoilers for the book and movie, probably )
eruthros: kink: a woman in handcuffs (kink: handcuffs)

eruthros: kink: a girl showing off her tongue piercing and studded collar (kink: tongue piercing)
Listen you guys I don't know if I've mentioned this six or twelve times before but I love it here at dreamwidth! I am so glad I moved and found this great space and subscribed to all sorts of great new people.

I am so thrilled we moved [community profile] kink_bingo here last year -- like, I just last week had an Official Conversation with [staff profile] denise where I was like, hey, our new round won't be opening for six more weeks, but I just wanted to see if we could get more invite codes in case people from lj want to play! And she was like, no problem, here you go, let us know if you need any more, we value your community. And they'll mention kinky and sex-positive groups in [site community profile] dw_news posts, and they'll stand up for our legal rights to talk about the things we talk about! I just! Guys! I feel like I have found a safe space.

Anyway, I got started thinking about that because [personal profile] telesilla asked me "So I, of course, LOVE kink_bingo and I'm just wondering why you & TWW started it up and if you had any idea that it would get to be a huge as it is now."

I can't remember how we decided to start it up, or where we got the idea, so I asked Twings if she remembered, and she doesn't either. But knowing how conversations with Twings go, I imagine that it was probably something along the lines of:
"I wish there were more kink fic!"
"Yeah! Also I am sad that some kinks are often marked as icky -- what is up with that, fandom!"
"Yeah! We should have a challenge. To have more kink fic! For all kinds of kink!"
for some reason we think of bingo here for reasons that neither of us can recall, seriously, bingo, who knows, but I do recall googling to look for bingo terminology for kinds of bingos
"Okay, let's make a list of kinks! I'll write them down as we go."
"Okay! Let's see: bondage and humiliation and sensory deprivation and..."
I also recall getting to about eighty kinks and then running out of brainstorming power and ending up with three separate sensory deprivation kinks, IDEK.
Twings: I will ask my journal if anyone would be interested in playing! If there are twenty people, we'll make a community!
eruthros: Oh cool! I will make some cards in photoshop!
finis

So, we had no idea it was going to be huge -- in fact, when I showed Twings how I was making the cards I remember that she asked me if I would be okay with making as many as sixty of them in a month, in case people wanted second or third cards. *facepalm* The first year I was making all the cards by hand in photoshop (reading off of a randomizer) until I left the country and then Twings made the rest of them, and last year we both made some in advance -- "only sixty people said they were interested in playing again on dreamwidth, and we're moving to dreamwidth which is new and smaller, let's make 200 cards in advance so we have backups!" we said -- and then we both made more and then I switched to doing them in imagemagick and typing all the kink names. I think we gave out something like 700 last year.

I am continually surprised by the number of people who are interested, because in the first round I thought maybe twenty people would play! And that's also why the rules have gotten clearer and more detailed as we've gone on -- the first time we did it, we were like "ho hum, twenty people, all people we know" so we didn't even alphabetize the kink list. It's even kinda funnily at the worst time of year for both of us -- I'm usually out of the country with almost no internet in the summer, and Twings is often travelling -- but we accidentally started in late May and we did it twice, so!

And it was also weird for me because I didn't have a fannish-only lj -- my lj was more fannish before my sister gave my whole family the url, and then I started having to flock/filter fannish stuff a lot. So I felt like I couldn't talk about kink bingo on lj, but I wanted to talk about it all the time. Especially since one of the things running the community has done is transform kinks I have that I used to be vaguely and uneasily ashamed of1 into things that I do want to talk about and feel comfortable talking about. I knew intellectually that putting the kinks all together on cards would be YKINMYBYKIOK and put kinks on equal footing, but I didn't really think it would make me feel this much more comfortable about talking about kink, this much less squicked by the kinks I don't share -- like, I'm much more able to take kinks and say, this isn't my kink right now, but what if I put it in a different context, what if I do it as powerplay, what if ... And even better, now I feel like I have a space here to talk about that sort of thing!2 Because I have moved to dreamwidth! And y'all are here! And this post comes full circle.

Also: eeeeee one month til the next round opens aaaaah I have so much to do before then!

1In a not hot way.

2Though mostly I'm not right now because I'm dealing with the kink-pseudo-wiki instead, oh my god, why is it so huge, it needs to stop. Also seriously if anyone can think of a clip for orgasm denial or object penetration or piercings/needleplay -- there must be a clip for needleplay that I've just blanked on, right -- that would be awesome.
eruthros: Farscape: John and Harvey in bunny suits (FS - John and Harvey in bunny suits)
So I was thinking about the [community profile] kink_bingo mini-challenge for this month as I was editing the kink wiki and putting in examples. And then I thought, wow, actually, I can think of a whole bunch of characters who dressed up in fursuits orfeather-suits! I should make an iconset of them to demonstrate how prevalent it is! So then I did.

There are 32 35 icons (thanks [personal profile] sabinetzin!) of people in fur/feathersuits under the cut: Mythbusters, Life on Mars, Boston Legal, Buffy, Middleman, Gravitation, and Farscape.

Sample:
001
002
003


furry iconset )

Aaaaand then I thought, while I'm uploading icons, I'll put up some Misc Iconage that I've done recently. This set includes Mytbusters kink icons, Doctor Who, Star Trek TOS, Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner, Rachel Maddow, Yellow Submarine, Hustle, White Coollar, Lord of the Rings (!), X-Files, Nichelle Nichols and Zoe Saldana, some stock photos of photography and tomatoes, and an educational comic from the 1950s.

I don't even know what all of these were for! )
