[personal profile] darkemeralds
Beta-reader notes on the final draft of Restraint have started coming in. This is the most nerve-wracking process!

The feedback so far is excellent: constructive, knowledgeable, and detailed. Nobody so far hates the novel. But the silences! Do the non-responders dislike it too much to comment? Were they too bored to finish? Are they too nice to say so?

It's impossible to get my ego out of the way. These people are doing me a huge favor and I don't want to press them, but only the fact that I have acrylic nails is keeping me from biting those nails off.

Cap-IM Remix Reveals!

Feb. 26th, 2017 07:09 pm
sineala: (Avengers: Welcome to NY)
[personal profile] sineala
Authors have been revealed for the Cap-IM remixes. I see that, as I suspected, [personal profile] navaan wrote me 20k of action-packed Noir amnesia identity porn (thanks, Navaan, it was amazing) -- but I didn't guess that kdm103020 wrote my fake dating remix. Anyway, they were both great.

I may now reveal my four stories! Here they are, in the order in which I wrote them! (I know I said the other day that I wrote three stories. That was technically true at the time. I did a very last-minute pinch hit literally three hours before deadline.)

The first thing I actually wrote was for Relay Remix, the telephone-style remix where participants successively remix each other's fic:

Same As It Ever Was (The Thought Bubbles Remix) (6316 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel (Comics), Marvel Ultimates, Marvel 616, Avengers (Comics)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, James "Bucky" Barnes, Gail Richards, James "Rhodey" Rhodes, Peter Parker
Additional Tags: Dreams, Multiverse, Alcohol Abuse/Alcoholism, Angst, Repression, Happy Ending, Remix, Captain America/Iron Man Relay Remix 2017, Community: cap_ironman
Summary: Steve Rogers, leader of the Ultimates, has strange dreams. Dreams where he's a comic book artist. Dreams where it wasn't SHIELD who pulled him from the ice. Dreams where he's an Avenger, whatever that is. But they're definitely dreams, because in these dreams he has a whole lot of... feelings... for Tony Stark. And that can't possibly be real, right? Right.

More about this story... )

I didn't know what the rest of the chain looked like until reveals, obviously, but I am pretty happy that it turned out that most of us took the opportunity to keep the multiverse theme going, because, seriously, it went 1872, 1872/616, AA multiverse, Ults/616, AvAc/Ults/616, a giant sprawl including all the above universes and the MCU, and so on. I feel kind of sorry for springing Ults on everyone. But obviously not that sorry!

And then there was my actual main Remix assignment, where I remixed Neverever's MCU story Past Imperfect:

If You Want to Live (The Historical Present Remix) (9249 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel (Comics), Marvel 616, Avengers (Comics)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Carol Danvers, James "Bucky" Barnes, Reed Richards, Stephen Strange
Additional Tags: Alternate Timelines, Time Travel, Rescue Missions, MIT Era, Star Trek References, Pining, Pre-Slash, Avengers Vol. 4 (2010), Remix, Community: cap_ironman, Captain America/Iron Man Fanfic Remix 2017
Summary: The Civil War is over. The SHRA is gone. Steve has been brought back to life. He's settling into his new duties as America's top cop. His longtime friendship with Carol Danvers -- Avenger, former director of SHIELD, and former leader of the pro-Registration forces -- is now a tenuous one. But something is very wrong in the world. This isn't how it was supposed to be. Someone is missing. Tony Stark was killed at the age of seventeen, and it's up to Steve to travel into the past to save a man he doesn't remember from a man he knows all too well: a mysterious assassin from another time and place, a man with a metal arm. And the truth is more complicated than anyone could ever have guessed.

And as for this one... )

And then I had two stories in Remix Madness!

The first is a remix of a_sparrows_fall's 616 Civil War AU You Started:

See You at the Bitter End (The Rest of the Rainbow Remix) (8422 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel (Comics), Marvel 616, Avengers (Comics), New Avengers (Comics)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, 5 Things, Infinity Gems, Civil War (Marvel), Civil War: The Confession (Marvel), Angst, Extremis, Bad Decisions, Accidental Death, Self-Sacrifice, Telepathy, Hopeful Ending, Remix, New Avengers Vol. 1 (2004), Community: cap_ironman
Summary: Pick a Gem, any Gem. And try to stop a war.

Mind the warnings and tags with this one.

Further details... )

And then there's my filthy, filthy remix of Robin_tCJ's MCU story Mark XXX:

Prototyping (The Make the Sparks Ignite Remix) (1176 words) by Sineala
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies)
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Iron Man (Armor)/Tony Stark
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Iron Man (Armor)
Additional Tags: Engineering, Established Relationship, Armor Kink, Plot What Plot/Porn Without Plot, Fantasizing, Remix, Community: cap_ironman
Summary: Tony is an excellent boyfriend and an excellent engineer, and so there's no way he's going to let his brand-new sex armor fuck Steve without him trying it out himself first.

A last-minute PWP in a universe I don't even write! )

This concludes my remixes.

Sweet movie

[personal profile] killabeez
I never get sick, but I'm sick. I blame car shopping + exhaustion. I try to avoid shaking hands whenever possible, but test driving cars with a sick car salesman for an hour, you're kind of doomed. (We did, in fact, finally buy a car, though not from the sick guy. An electric one! I'm psyched that we finally have an electric car, and it was cute, and cheap.) Oh, and then yesterday, I went to the anti-bathroom-bill rally in Tacoma, which felt necessary but almost certainly did not help me fight off this cold. Anyways. I am sick, and there's no two ways about it, so I'm staying in bed today, drinking fluids, and watching movies on Netflix.

Which brings me to this cute one: Sing Street. Rather adorable, relatively pain-free, and with bonus Aiden Gillen and Maria Doyle Kennedy. If you like eighties music, best friends who write songs together, and brothers who love each other a whole lot, I highly recommend. (A note re: the trailer, pretty much all the bullying that happens in the movie appears in the trailer, so a) be warned, but only if you're extremely sensitive to it, and b) it's pretty mild.)

[personal profile] fanloremod posting in [community profile] fanlore
Some time ago, the Fanlore committee was approached with concerns that non-English speaking doujinshi creators might misunderstand Fanlore’s image policy (or be completely unaware of it, if they stumble upon the site randomly) and think that we allow the upload of full unauthorized scans of doujinshi.

To ease their minds and explain more about Fanlore’s policies, we drafted an explanation and had it translated into Japanese.

The explanation is as follows:


Fanlore's purpose and image policy

The purpose of the Fanlore wiki is to give fans a place to record information about their fannish activities and communities. Fanlore is an information site, not an online gallery or a place to post entire fanworks. Things like uploading a scan of a whole doujinshi or a translated scan of a whole doujinshi are absolutely not allowed on Fanlore. Links and pictures on Fanlore have to be relevant to an article, and there must always be attribution for the fan artist.

This wiki is a project of the Organization for Transformative Works, a US-based non-profit organization with members from all over the world that works to support fans. Among many other activities, the OTW provides information about the law to fans, creates software for archiving fanworks in the form of the Archive of Our Own, and publishes academic works about fans. The purpose of the Fanlore wiki is to give fans a place to record information about fan culture and history. Like all other OTW projects, the wiki is a not-for-profit project that is created entirely by fannish volunteers of many nationalities.

Many contributors to this wiki talk about Japanese fans and fanworks, and some also link to Japanese websites and post pictures such as covers of doujinshi they love. Fanlore uses the same linking and image policies as, for instance, the US version of Wikipedia. On the English-language internet, it's normal to link to any website without asking permission, and sometimes also to re-upload images of other people's work in limited ways. US copyright law also has a "fair use" clause that says copyrighted works can be re-used without permission under some circumstances, for instance news reporting, education, or parody. This fair use clause is very important to US fans, because many fans and researchers believe that the fair use clause makes it legal to create fanworks in the US.

Because preserving the fair use clause is so important for fans, Fanlore must allow fans to link to any website or upload a picture from fanart like illustrations and doujinshi, if that picture is relevant to the wiki article they're writing. If part of a fanwork is shown on Fanlore, the fanwork's original license does not change. The person who created the picture does not lose any legal rights they had to their work or its use.

If a Fanlore user has added an image from your fanwork in a way that you're uncomfortable with, please contact the Fanlore administrators, and we will do everything we can to help. If the image was added in a way that's consistent with the fair use clause, it may be impossible for the Fanlore administrators to remove it entirely. But even in such a case, we can also change the size of the image, upload a different version, crop the image, or remove identifying information from it.

If you have any questions or comments about Fanlore, or about the way your fanworks are represented on Fanlore, don't hesitate to contact the wiki administrators. You can use this form to send us a message in Japanese or English. (If you write to us in Japanese, it may take us a little longer to reply because our Japanese volunteers need to translate your message.)

We look forward to hearing from you! If you'd like to write about your experiences as a fan or make corrections to Fanlore articles, please go here to make a free account and add your voice.

Fanloreの目的と画像利用ポリシーについて

Fanlore wikiは様々な作品のファンのために提供された、ファン活動やファンコミュニティに関する情報を記録する場であり、オンラインギャラリーや、ファン作品の内容まるごとを投稿するためのサイトとは違います。目的はあくまで情報の記録であり、当wikiでは同人誌全体をスキャンした画像や、スキャンした同人誌を翻訳した画像をアップロードする行為を固く禁じています。記事への掲載が許可されるのは記事内容に関連のあるリンクまたは画像のみで、画像の著作権はいつでも必ず、作者であるファンアーティストに帰属します。

Fanlore wikiプロジェクトは変形的作品のためのNPO (OTW)によって運営されています。OTWは世界中にメンバーを持つアメリカ合衆国を拠点とした非営利団体で、あらゆる作品のファンをサポートするために活動しています。なかでも代表的なプロジェクトに、ファンに対する法律関係の情報提供、AO3に投稿されたファン作品を保存するためのソフトウェア作成、ファンに関する学術的ジャーナルの発行などがあります。FanloreもまたOTWの他のプロジェクトと同様に、様々な国のファンからなるボランティアによって制作された非営利プロジェクトであり、ファンのみなさんにファン文化とその歴史に関する情報を記録する場を提供することを目的として運営されています。

Fanlore wikiでは、日本のファンやファンがつくった作品についてに多くの編集者が記事の投稿や編集、議論などを行っています。そのため、日本のウェブサイトへのリンクが含まれている記事や、編集者お気に入りの同人誌の表紙画像がアップロードされている記事も少なくありません。リンクと画像の扱いに関して、Fanloreはウィキペディアの米国版に適用されているものと同じルールを守っています。英語圏のインターネット上においてウェブサイトに無断でリンクを貼ることは違法ではなく、一部の条件下では他人によって作成された画像であっても、その作者に断りを取らずに再アップロードすることができるのです。米著作権法の「フェアユース」条項においても、ニュース報道、教育、またはパロディが目的であるケースにおいて、著作物の再利用は合法とされています。アメリカ合衆国のファンやファン創作研究者の多くはファン創作を合法だと考えていますが、その根拠となっているのがこのフェアユースです。そのためアメリカのファンたちにとって、フェアユースはとても重要な法律です。

フェアユースの権利を守ることは、ファンにとって非常に重要な意味を持っています。そのためFanloreには記事のトピックに関連する限りにおいて、任意ウェブサイトのリンク掲載や、イラストや同人誌のようなファンイラストの一部アップロードを許可する義務があります。ファン作品の一部がFanloreに掲載されたとしても作品の元の著作権が変更されることはなく、作品やその使用に関する法的権利はすべて画像の作成者に帰属します。

あなたのファン作品がFanloreユーザーがよってアップロードされたことを不快に感じられた場合は、Fanloreの管理者までご連絡いただければ全力でサポートさせていただきます。ただし、画像のアップロードがフェアユース条項に照らして問題のない方法でアップロードされていた場合には、画像の完全な削除ができないこともありえます。しかしそういった場合でも、画像サイズの変更やアップロード画像の差し替え、画像のトリミング、作成者を識別できる情報の削除といった手段で対応することは可能です。

Fanloreそのもの、またはFanlore上に表示された皆様のファン作品についてご意見・ご質問等がありましたら、こちらのフォームからFanloreの管理者までお気軽にご連絡下さい。メッセージは日本語、英語のどちらでもご送信いただけます。(ただし日本語で送っていただいた場合、翻訳ボランティアにメッセージを翻訳してもらう必要があるため、返信までに少々お時間をいただく場合があります。)

ご意見、ご感想はいつでもお待ちしております!ファンとしての経験を活かしてFanloreの記事を書きたい、Fanloreの記事を修正したいという方は、無料アカウントを作成してぜひ編集にご参加ください。


We plan to post both English and Japanese versions on a separate/dedicated Fanlore page. It will be linked to from the main image policy page as well as in the doujinshi infobox template to ensure that Japanese fans will be able to see it.

Before the page goes up on Fanlore, we want to hear from the fans!

If you are a member of the Japanese fandom, or know somebody who is knowledgeable about doujinshi, please read through the note and let us know if it addresses all the concerns one might have.

Spread the word among your Japanese friends on social media and ask for their input as well. If they are uncomfortable communicating with us in English, please let them know they can leave us comments in Japanese.

If you don’t want to leave comments here, you can always email us your thoughts at wiki@transformativeworks.org

For the next two weeks, we will be gathering input from everybody before proceeding with implementation. Thank you in advance for all the help, and see you on Recent Changes!

Cloudflare


We've had people ask us about the Cloudflare leak reported a few days ago. We are Cloudflare customers, and it is possible that login cookies or passwords may have been exposed as part of the incident. We believe the risk to you is relatively low -- it was a small percentage of Cloudflare's requests that were involved over a relatively short period of time, and we haven't found any evidence that anything from us was among them. This is not an absolute guarantee that none of your accounts were affected, but we don't think the likelihood is very high.

Because we believe the risk to be low, we aren't automatically expiring everyone's session cookies and requiring you to log back in and change your password -- whenever we do that, it does lock some people who they can't remember their passwords and no longer have access to their confirmed email addresses out of their accounts, and we believe that will affect more people in this case.

Still, it's always a good idea to change your passwords regularly, and now would be a good time to do it, especially if you want peace of mind. We have a FAQ on how to change your password. If your browser logs you in automatically and you don't remember your password, you can reset it. If you've forgotten your password and no longer have access to your most recent confirmed email address, you can have the password reset email sent to any email address you've confirmed on your account by entering both your username and your old email address at the Lost Info page.

Unfortunately, if you've forgotten your password and no longer have access to any email address you've confirmed on your account, you probably won't be able to reset your password. In some cases, if you've previously paid for your account, we can validate your payment details to confirm your identity and reset your password. If you can't reset your password, but think you may have paid for your account in the past, you can open a support request in the Account Payments category and I'll check into it for you.


LiveJournal imports/crossposts/feeds


LiveJournal has temporarily blocked about 2/3rds of our webservers from contacting their site, presumably because they feel that we're requesting data from them too often. This affects the ability to import your journal, the ability to crosspost entries from your Dreamwidth account to your LiveJournal account, and whether syndicated feeds of accounts on LiveJournal will update on Dreamwidth. Those features will fail when they're unable to contact LJ because of the block.

It isn't every one of our webservers, so things will work intermittently -- if you crosspost two entries one right after the other, one might succeed while the other fails. Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do to resolve this other than contacting them and asking them to unblock us (which I'll be doing right after I hit 'post' on this entry).

EDIT 2249 EST 25 Feb: We appear to be down to zero unblocked webservers, so imports, crossposts, and feeds will all fail until LJ unblocks us.

EDIT 26 Feb noon EST: LJ unblocked and whitelisted us this morning, so all is working again!
