Well, as always I'm never that good at keeping up with the updating. But today I am sick with bronchitis and not a lot to do, so it seems like a good time to say hello to all of you (who probably barely remember me at this point!) before I fall asleep in a pathetic, phlegmy heap.

So, the last I posted here, I was wibbling hardcore about the realisation that I did not, in fact, want to do a PhD, and what that means for my whole life as I had planned it. Y'all were so helpful and supportive, so thank you for that &hearts &hearts So I decided to really think about what I want to do with myself, what I like and what I love, did some research...


And here I am in Toronto.Collapse )

The scars, which had seemed so commonplace all Teddy"s life, stood out livid against Bill"s skin now, set into sharp relief by their history.Collapse )

You really are the most imbecilic scoundrel, a blackguard amongst the innocents, and thick in the head.Collapse )

Just occurred to me that I haven't re-posted this fic in my personal journal. Better late than never!

Also, I'm now all moved in at IJ, and can be found under the same username there, if anyone wants to look me up! ( http://rose-whispers.insanejournal.com/ )

Title: Pig Rectums and Other Ratings Grabbers
Rating: PG-13
Fandom: Mythbusters
Word count: ~2000
Pairing: Adam/Jamie
Summary: The Mythbusters are disgusted to learn that they have to do a mindless sex-themed show to boost their ratings. Adam and Jamie go above and beyond the call of duty.
A/N: This is a gift-fic for thescarletwoman. She mentioned the UST between Adam and Jamie, I threatened to do something about it, she dared me to follow through on my threat, and this is the result. Thank you to my patient (if somewhat horrified) gentleman caller for the beta!
DISCLAIMER: While this is based upon the show Mythbusters, the characters herein are FICTIONAL and bear no actual resemblance to the actions (that we know of) of any of the people who work on Mythbusters. This is a work of fiction and silliness, and I beg your indulgence and forgiveness for it.

Yeah, that definitely didn"t want to go in thereCollapse )

I know I'm not much around fandom these days, apart from RPing and the very-occasional fic. But today I heard that Norval Morrisseau died on Tuesday, December 4th, and I need to commemorate him here. Norval's work has inspired me for many years. He inspired what has been called by many a renaissance in Aboriginal, and indeed in Canadian art, giving voice to First Nations peoples and cultures at a time in Canada when that just wasn't done. His vibrant, sometimes turbulent, use of colours, strong shapes, and his controversial use of mythological and spiritual Aboriginal themes in his earlier work as well as images from his own personal battles and from Christianity in his later work ignite to create unforgettable, landscape-changing art.




He's been given the Order of Canada and the lifetime achievement award from National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation, and has had many prestigious and important shows both in Canada and around the world. His life was difficult, characterized by struggles with alcoholism and living on the streets, and later in life with Parkinson's Disease, and yet he always strove to be a role model. I was lucky enough to see a huge showing of his work at the wonderful McMichael Gallery in Kleinberg last year, a version of the National Gallery's "Shaman Artist" show. I am someone who can do no more with art than admire it, being wholly unartistic myself, and I cannot find words to say how moving, disturbing, peaceful, violent, spiritual, thought-provoking the show was. Norval is my favourite artist, the pinnacle of creativity, of finding one's own style from within one's heritage, and of breaking cultural barriers to give voice to Anishnaabe art and Canadian art. Migwetch, Norval. Thank you for all you've done.
