I know, I haven't updated in a long while and lots of things have changed since the last time. I'm going to try to be better about it (though I make no promises)
So... living in London, again. And new job, which is pretty much the same as the old job with a change of scenery and industry, but reaffirms my belief that users are the same no matter the country, language and occupation. But, though I'm missing my friends from Spain, now I have all the people I left behind in London when I moved, plus duare
also living around here. Also, quitting smoking, and yes, I know it's not the first time (and obviously, as I am trying again, I wasn't very successful previously, but I keep trying)
Also, it's that time of the year again! Yes, fest time. As always I am neck deep in aisinfronteras
, showing that duare
and my masochism knows no bounds. This year to make things more interesting, as if they weren't interesting enough, we also participate with a fic to one of the other mods, our own little exchange.
And since modding and participating only one fest would be for normal people, there is also kakairu_fest
, where I'm also on double duty. KAKAIRU FEST WINTER ROUND SIGN UPS: art by nerrianah; click on the pic to get to the sign-up post!
And of course, the one I can't miss, because there can be no Christmas without the go_exchange
Can't wait for the sign ups to open. And no, in this one I only participate. And unfortunately don't have a banner for it. And speaking of Good Omens, I have tickets to go to Neil Gaiman's reading of his latest book in London on the 15th of October, and I will probably try and get my copy of Good Omens signed by him, as I already have Terry Pratchett's signature.

ACTA in a Nutshell –
What is ACTA? ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.
Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”
What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

In two hours I'll be on my way to the airport, and from there to spend three weeks exploring Vietnam and Cambodia!
this time we barely have anything arranged but the first two nights, so different that the time we went to Japan. It's going to be good, though. I have my luggage (huge backpack, really) ready, and everything aroud the house done so I can leave. I'm so excited!!!

Si, es la tercera edicion ya del aisinfronteras
y como decimos por aqui, ¿quien dijo miedo?
Las nominaciones se abrieron hace una semana, y en una semana mas o menos abriremos el periodo para apuntarse. Y uno se pregunta, ¿estamos locas? porque ahora tendremos unos mesecitos de estress, y quizas consigamos batir records nuevamente y pasemos de los 1500 correos (el años pasado superamos los 1000, en lo que llevamos de intercambio ya hemos pasado los 200). Y si, lo estamos... pero y lo bien que nos lo pasamos, ¿eh? Y todos vosotros, que participais con nosotras tambien.
Asi que aqui estamos, otro año mas, con el aisinfronteras
Si no os habeis pasado a nominar... ¿a que estais esperando?
Este año va a haber fandoms de lo mas curioso... venir a verlo.
Title: A Close Call (Or, The Day You Get Relationship Advice From Death Could Be Your Last)
Fandoms: Naturo and Discworld kind of fusion.
Pairing/Characters: Kakashi/Iruka, Death
Genre: humour, angst, romance.
Warnings: Not quite character death
Word Count: 2.200
Summary: Iruka meets Death. They have a chat.
Author Notes: For the purpose of this fic, I've put the shinobi nations in the Discworld. Please suspend your disbelief for a while; it's just a bit of harmless fun. ( Iruka ran as if all the hounds of hell were at his heels. Collapse )
Beacuse the image the world has of us can't be further from the truth, at least lately.
Spain has been, like most of the world, inmersed in a crisis for the past few years. But things are not improving here, they're getting worse. Corruption, unemployment, and many other issues have forced the Spanish people to protest. Since the 15M we've been camping in Spain's main squares, Puerta del Sol
in Madrid and Plaza Catalunya
in Barcelona. It's been pretty peaceful... up till now. This morning, Catalonian main police force, Los Mosos d'Essquadra, charged against the people peacefully camping in Plaza de Catalunya, to try to move them from the square. They violently charged against a peaceful demonstration with truncheons and rubber balls
The square has been taken back, with even more people, to protest for the treatment recieved.
We won't be quiet And we won't stop.
Please spread the word, because this
needs to be known.
I also tried my hand with the Remix Madness, and this is what I did.
Title: Deja Vu (The Dreaming of You Remix)
Summary: For some reason, even when everything around them was being swallowed by the darkness, Inui could see Kaidoh's face clearly.
notes: Remixed from Wild Outliers
by via_ostiense( Deja vuCollapse )
I'm very excited about this! I hope you also are :)
Have a look around, you can find everything here
or in my tag list or in AO3
, or my Memories.
There are a couple of WIPs and a previous Remix (A Dangerous Man) and also a Safe Story (Shadows on the Moon) but I hope you have enough material to play around and can find something you like. On that note, The Bet universe is not a WIP, and can be taken as one shots or all together, so it's fine to pick that one if so you chose. The same goes for the Lust, Love universe.
There are no restrictions, and I'm very, very hard to squick, so please go wild and play as much as you want with whichever fic you chose!
Title: Past the Eighth Gate - Part III
Characters: Kakashi, Iruka.
Genre: Drama, angst
Warnings: (Highlight to read.) —> This deals with serious issues like alcoholism and depression.
Word Count: ~2.000 this part
Summary: Kakashi never thought he'd survive the war. He did, but not unscathed. Now he has to learn his new place in Konoha, and he's not dealing well with it. He receives unwanted help from an unlikely source.( Iruka pursed his lips, annoyed. Kakashi wasn"t drunk, nothing as bad as that, but his eyes were a bit too bright and his posture more relaxed than it had been inside his own home. Collapse )
