SFX hosts a contest to design the Doctor's bedroom. Now taking bets on how many entries they get vs. how many entries they could actually publish in a family magazine.

Via [ profile] profrobert, classic erotica from Edith Wharton that's almost worthy of [ profile] weepingcock.

A few choice excerpts after the cut, with a warning that it's possible what's being described is incest. (See the Jezebel link for more info.) Some of my favorite passages ... )

Everything about this is disturbing, and I do mean everything: Five Creepiest Sex Scenes in Comics.

How disturbing? Well, as my husband put it when he tweeted this link earlier, "the Superman/Big Barda porno is only #5."

I probably shouldn't make this post, but I am, because I have had it.

I do not care if you don't like Steven Moffat's work. I do not care if you don't think he ships Doctor/Rose enough, appropriately, or at all. I do not care if you don't like River Song. Fandom is large and diverse, and we will never agree on everything. That's perfectly normal, and doesn't bother me in the least.

What I hope we can agree on is that it is absolutely not okay to refer to Moffat as "Herr Moff" or a "TV!Hitler" simply because you don't like his episodes, his characters, or what his plans for the show might be. I don't care how much you say you were "kidding"; it isn't funny. It will never be funny. Hitler killed millions and millions of people; nearly six million of my people alone. My thesis advisor had a number tattooed on her arm, and a pair of legs permanently damaged by the Nazis who ran her over for fun. A showrunner who doesn't share your preferences is not remotely similar to the genocidal, megalomaniacal dictator who ordered these deaths. Not even close. Suggesting such a thing even in what you think is a joking manner is disgusting and utterly reprehensible.

If you are one of the people in question, don't even bother trying to comment here. I banned you the moment I saw that thread. There is only one thing I want to hear from you anyway: "I'm sorry. I did something foolish, ignorant, and offensive. I won't do it again."

*By the way, if you are friends with the people who made these comments, please know that I don't judge you for being friends with them, or hold you responsible for their behavior in any way. They are responsible for themselves.

Fandom!Secret #181. Not mine, and given the kind of fic I've written, not something I'd ever want to know about.

I know several people on my flist are scientists, researchers, or generally interested in science research, and since a few of you may not have heard yet about the fan fiction survey, consider this an object lesson in Doing It Wrong. Seriously, how do you get to the point of having a PhD in a scientific field and not realize that you can't change the questions in the middle of the survey without affecting your data? (And that's the least of the problems with this little project – it's just one of the most obvious points of Science Fail.)

The survey is finally down while the researchers "digest all this great feedback." Personally, I agree with the anonmeme theory that this is subtle code for "BRB, BU IRB SMACKING OUR ASSES, AND NOT IN THE GOOD WAY YOU FOLKS WRITE ABOUT."

That's right: chocolate cake made with mayonnaise.

I saw this recipe in the March/April 2009 Cook's Illustrated, and had heard about recipes like this before, but it wasn't until [ profile] violetisblue made it (and I had a ton of duck egg mayonnaise to use up) that I decided to try it for myself.

This is just about the easiest chocolate cake I've ever made, second only to the standard Moosewood vegan chocolate cake recipe I've made so many times. If you can't put this together in 15 minutes, you're doing it wrong. The texture is simultaneously light and moist, and the hint of olive oil flavor (thank goodness I made the duck egg mayo with a 2:1 vegetable oil/olive oil ratio) actually worked surprisingly well with the cake.

[ profile] columbina is still afraid of it. He'd better get over it quickly, though, because I really should not be responsible for eating an entire cake (even if it's only a single layer) all by myself.

In an effort to keep myself from flailing about tomorrow's Confidential, I am going to spend the afternoon knitting and watching something totally unrelated to DW. Not that this will help much, I suspect, but it's worth a shot.

Another thing that probably won't help, but I'm going to do it anyway:

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

(Actually, I may try to write 100 words exactly, just because.)
