They first met again six months later in Paris, after someone stopped the Eiffel Tower from falling on a group of panicked tourists. It was ridiculous really, the way Erik seemed to show off for the bystanders, and tried to hide from them.

Note: Many, many thanks to [personal profile] alby_mangroves, who provided fantastic beta, and whose encouragement made the difference between shoving this in a drawer, and posting it. (If you find any lingering mistakes, those are my fault. Revisions, y'know.)

I am having so much fun uploading stories onto my Kindle -- I have put the Retrograde series up, for instance, because I love Jack O'Neill's combination of batshit crazy and extremely effective -- and John and Rodney's own reflection of that in their relationship and their work. But I can't find a story that goes with it, but isn't part of the main sequence, where Walter and Teal'c go shopping somewhere like K-Mart for children's clothing, ice cream machines, sports equipment and so on for the ship heading back to Atlantis.

Any ideas, anyone?

Also -- is there a way of setting up subdirectories on the Kindle? In other words, if I use it in thumbdrive mode, without going through any other programs, and set up extra folders and levels, will that still show when I'm back to reading and looking for stories?
Congress wants to gut your rights. Read this one. This is the week when your Congresspeople are home. Go talk to them about the bill that would get rid of your right to class-action lawsuits.

I got back to my Quaker Meeting today after nearly 2 years of being away because of illness. When it came to the time for sharing joys and sorrows -- people standing and talking about cool stuff that has happened or asking for prayer (holding in the Light) for difficult things -- I got up and said that my joy was in being back, gave them the short version of why I was away (abdominal tumor, surgery, colitis, not fun) and thanked people for staying in touch. I also mentioned that during that time I'd lost 50 pounds and my hair had turned brown and silver (it had been various shades of red, thanks to good henna which I was too tired to keep up with the last 2 years.) Good thing I said that -- about half of the people there whom I've known for a while were not sure it was me until I spoke. But now that that's straightened out, they're glad I'm back, I'm glad I'm back, and things are very good. Which ... I have been missing these people something fierce. It matters. And I'm glad to be back.
I don't know how many of you brushed up accidentally against someone named Winterfox in LJ, years ago. She is back, and is still harassing people -- pro authors who are speaking about against her and her aliases. Rachelmanija has the details here. Please consider throwing a few dollars down for a book by one of these people who are standing up to harassment.

Yes, voter identification laws suppress voting.

A Texas PBS station censored a commentary criticizing Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas. And this blew up, all the way to PBS national.

Photos from inside detention centers. The truth is not pretty.

Local police say they did not shut down a Town Hall meeting or tell Congressman McClintock to leaven no matter what he says.

3 ways Scott Pruitt could shut down the EPA. As someone with asthma, I want my air clean. I remember when it wasn't. I remember when the sky over industrial areas was gray, or pink, or the Kodachrome sunsets from the chemicals leaching into the environment from Eastman Kodak.

White House wants a NY billionaire to review the intelligence agencies. They are not in favor of this. Does he even have a security clearance? For that matter, does anyone in the West Wing (or what's left of it) have a clearance? Beyond that, is this likely to lead to a purge of the agencies? Anyone not 'loyal' gets kicked?

For Mar-a-Lago residents, proximity is power.

4chan and 45.

45 and the definition of insanity.

UK firm warns lawyers traveling to the US not to allow Homeland Security access to their phones. A bit more here.

Pence's speech leaves NATO officials troubled.

Chaos in the White House.

Dept. of (so-called) Justice steps up its force against water protectors.


I think the people who want to bring back woolly mammoths are not thinking it through. First, the climate is a lot warmer than when they were here. Second, they are communal, herd creatures like elephants, with their own culture -- raising individuals with no idea of how to behave around other mammoths (or humans) is a recipe for disaster.
