Authors' Note: This review was written before either of us had watched the second season. It is chock-full of major spoilers for S1, so proceed with caution!

Spoiler alert: we love, love, love this show. )

Here we go! Let's Halloween!

FIRST: This is based on an event I participated in back in 2008. I've tried to modernize it a bit, but I will be the first to admit it may not be perfect and I am quite willing to make changes if warranted. Also, I firmly encourage participants to make their own changes/additions if they so desire, as long as a couple of basic guidelines are followed.

1. Copy This!



2. It'll give you something like this to paste in your journal:


[community profile] monthlysupergo

Kalloway's Door


DW username: [personal profile] kalloway
AO3 username: [archiveofourown.org profile] kalloway

You may get: Fic! (drabbles-or-longer), icons, recs, meta, picspam, etc.

Please leave me: A fandom, pairing, character and/or prompt, or a general request. Multiple requests are fine! Or just leave a 'fic or treat' and you could get anything!

Light is on for: everyone from SuperGo, everyone in my dwircle, anyone wandering by! No need to have your own door post. Don't be shy!

Fandoms, etc.: Saint Seiya, Final Fantasy VII/AC, Final Fantasy VIII, Gundam SEED/Astray/Destiny, Gundam 00, Twin Signal, Kiddy Grade, Macross/Frontier, Generator Gawl, Gundam Build Fighters, Voltron: Legendary Defender, Tekkaman Blade II, any of my original stuff, anything with dragons or robots/mecha, or float me an inquiry because I'm sure there's plenty I haven't listed.

Other info: DNW flat out rape/non-con, but everything else is open~


3. Customize if desired.

4. However-
• If you post a door, you must have it at least open to other [community profile] monthlysupergo members. Opening it to the rest of your circle and visitors is up to you.
• Try to give something to everyone who knocks.
• If you knock, you may get the fic of your dreams, or picspam of your fave, or an icon of skittles or other silliness. That is all okay. It is just like real trick-or-treating where you don't know what you'll get and you have no expectations to bring home a sack of king-size butterfingers.
• Now I want a Butterfinger, dammit.
• SAY THANK YOU!

5. Leave a link to your Door in the comments.

6. If I've totally bungled something, especially the HTML, let me know. ^^;;

7. Feel to put up your Door any time between now and the 31st; try to give out fics, treats, etc. on the 31st.

Go Knock On These Doors! )

Two pieces...

I woke up this morning before 6am, somewhat inexplicably, with "There is a River in Judea" in my head.

I don't know if that's a thing in the UK, but growing up in North America it was pretty much inescapable; and the plethora of recordings online suggests that it still is.

Listening to it afresh, I was struck by the directness. There's an effficiency to it, almost, and it isn't afraid to repeat a good tune.

It wouldn't do, though, to have it stuck in my head all day. So I'm listening to Bainton's setting of "And I Saw A New Heaven" which is one of my all-time favourite pieces.

Junk Food Junkies, rejoice!

Your humble narrator was once a happy member of [livejournal.com profile] trashy_eats, before departing LJ altogether for greener, less-censored pastures. Having seen a post on the Book of Face that needed to be shared, she went to see if [community profile] trashy_eats existed...only to discover that nothing had been done with the community since it was originally created seven years ago, and that the two other members listed are no longer active to request that the community be transferred.

This, she thought, simply will not do.

...

I promise I don't always write in the third person. Join me in [community profile] trashy_eats_too, won't you?
