I finally got Deepest Sender to work again. It involved messing around with my profile settings in Firefox, deleting DS, reinstalling it, swearing a lot, deleting it AGAIN, and then finally deleting all record of DS off of my firefox profile, then reinstalling.


Everything tech wise went a little pear shaped all at once, too, and I want to give serious thanks to Darren from Bad Wolf Software for going round and round with me through email to figure out what the heck was going on with my PageFour software, which is an awesome word processing program that lets me have seven different fics open and in progress in one single window. And yet, for some reason, it was refusing to acknowledge the fact that I had more than one notebook, and i had to search and find every single story in progress. NOT COOL. But with Darren's help and a LOT of uninstalling and reinstalling and looking through settings and files, it is now FIXED.

Which means that NaNoFinito (my get-off-my-ass-and-finish-those-fics plan for November) is officially a GO. I still need a master post for that, and if anybody else wants to play, I'd love the support and cheerleading.

ALSO! [ profile] yuletide noms are coming up! We're only getting to nom three fandoms this year, and holy crap I just don't know. I've decided on two, but the third? NO FUCKING CLUE. [ profile] anenko and I have had several conversations about it on tumblr, and GAH, I just dont know!

One is definitely Wedding Wars, which is a very cute made-for-tv movie from 2006 starring John Stamos as a gay man who goes on strike for gay rights. Sean Maher (Simon Tam from Firefly) is his partner, and they are just SO ADORABLE I can't stand it. And there is no fic for it. Anywhere. I'm begging you, GO DOWNLOAD IT.

(CHEEEEEEESY video, but it's all I can find.)

I've more or less decided on nomming Long Love Letter as my second, which is a very very weird, futuristic jdrama that involves time travel and giant telepathic spiders. And who doesn't love telepathic spiders?

(This MV tragically lacking in giant telepathic spiders.)

And then, MAAAAYBE Dare Yori mo Mama. Which is a weird jdrama about reversed gender roles with CANON GAY. MAYBE. Because the world needs more Pinko-san and adorable boy kisses.

(Yeah, no mvs. At all. Have a cute pic!)

Or maybe something else. Hana Kimi tw? PGSM? I have no idea...HALP.

I can't even..begin to tell you the insanity that is Yatterman. I can't explain it. I definitely cannot explain this SCENE, except that it exists, and even though I've watched it multiple times (this scene, not the whole movie), i am still boggled.

To start with, I watched Yatterman for one main reason:

Do you blame me? Look at his LIPS.

I knew going in that it was A) a kid's movie, and B) based on a earlier Japanese anime. The key part here is KID'S MOVIE. Everybody got that?

Ok, onward!

really, do not blame me for any brain breakage )

Look, no one ELSE is making icons of gay jdrama, which means I have to!

Have several!

Comments is nice, credit is mandatory, por favor.

I just finished watching Dare Yori mo Mama, which is a family drama. It is MUCH different from my cracky dramas, and there were parts of it (ok, many parts of it) that I fast forwarded through.

It caught my attention after [ profile] darkeyedwolf posted a pimp for it at [ profile] rainscene, and proclaimed that not only was there gender role reversals - Mama is a big shot lawyer, Papa stays home and takes care of the house, big brother is a sweet, kind, compassionate hairdresser, big sister keeps getting fired for punching her bosses in the face - there was CANON GAY.

I went in for all of this, and while some parts of the gender role reversals annoyed the heck out of me, i was really in it for the gay. Because gay? Japan? WHAT?
