Rating: 14A?
Summary: Inspired by this pic that I saw on Tumblr; written largely for my dear whreflections because she's wonderful and because she, like me, enjoys a good hand-pinning fic. Enjoy!

Other ways to enjoy this story: Another dear friend of mine who happens to be a huge Holmes fan, as well as British with a GORGEOUS voice, was kind enough to podfic this for me. If you'd like to check it out, you can find her original post on Tumblr here.

THIS IS A FUCKING CALL TO ARMS

AkuRoku - Winter
I need us all to band together to shut down the biggest fucking sack of shit excuse for a zoo I have ever seen. I am ASHAMED that this place exists in my province, in my country, hell, ANYWHERE in the fucking world. It is sick and disgusting what is happening to these poor creatures. Bob Barker and PETA are all over our local zoo with no good reason, but nothing is being done about this pile of fucking SHIT.

The "volunteers" who "work" there are all over the Facebook album where these images were posted trying to defend these living conditions, but there is no excuse. There is no good reason that this should be happening. Right now, tons of people are trying to get their friends and family to call the SPCA, report this place, and get it shut down so that these poor animals can get some proper care. This "zoo" calls itself a fucking RESCUE, for Chrissakes! Honestly, at this point, euthanization would be better for the poor animals.

So here's what I'm asking--begging--you to do. If you can, if you are at all monetarily able, PLEASE call the Alberta (Canada) SPCA and file a complaint against this place. I don't care what you say--whether you fib and say you've been there, or you just tell them you saw a collection of photos on the web. But something needs to be done, and we need as many people as possible taking action to make sure it happens. Emails, letters, phone calls--whatever! Pass it on, tell your friends and relations. Please.

Here are the photos that were just posted today and brought this entire situation to my own attention. Just FYI--some of them are really graphic, especially in terms of animal abuse. If that sort of thing affects you strongly, you might want to navigate away.

There is also an online petition to try and get this place shut down. It has about 13000 signatures right now--guys, if the full power of Livejournal and the internet comes to bear against this, we could easily double or even triple that.

I'm also trying to get #shutdownguzoo as a trending topic on Twitter! If you have a Twitter feed, please post!


I know I don't have a lot of friends on LJ, but some of the people that follow me do. You guys, please. If this touches you at all, please post this on your own LJs so we can try to get this place shut down.

Soldier - Music meme!

AkuRoku - Winter
Absolutely ganked this from whreflections   :D


Put your iPod/mp3 player/iTunes/music player of choice on Shuffle mode. For each question, press the 'Next' button to get your answer. You MUST write the song name down that comes up, no matter how silly it sounds as an answer to the question or how embarrassing it is. Make snarky comments as necessary.




SOMEONE SAYS "IS THIS OKAY" YOU SAY:
Tenderly - Nat King Cole
You know...this is true. While I have my kinks and I can be loud and boisterous and I like excitement and fun...at the end of the day, tenderness is always what I want. That gentle, perfect, featherlight dreamlike quality. A good song to start us out, wouldn't you say? I do love me some Nat King Cole. :)

WHAT WOULD BEST DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONALITY?
I Will Get There - Boys II Man, Prince of Egypt Soundtrack
You know...I'm not sure this describes me right now, but this is how I wish I could be. This is what I strive for, and long for, this perfect surety. 
"Been lost somewhere where no light could shine on my heart, I have known a pain so deep, but I know my faith will free me...And I'll get through this, I'll find my way again, so don't tell me that it's over..."


WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN THE OPPOSITE/SAME SEX?
Someday Out of the Blue - Elton John
Yes yes yes yes yes. Okay, maybe not so much about the person themselves, but this is...oh god. This song is my ideal, everything I could dream for in a romance. 
"Someday out of the blue, in a crowded street or a deserted square I'll turn and I'll see you, as if we always knew."
Having someone close enough to be your best friend, and then one day just turning to them and seeing them as though it's the very first time, and knowing that it's perfect and just...how it's supposed to be. *sigh*


HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
Hanabi - Ayumi Hamasaki (Fireworks)
I hate when Japanese songs turn up in these, oh man. Always so tempting to just skip em...anyways. Fireworks. Unlike the Katy Perry song, this one is just so sad. And...not really true, heh. But beautiful nonetheless. 
"I'm looking up at the stained sky so my tears don't well up and fall."


WHAT IS YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE?
Iyashi no Te - Tsuneyoshi Saito (Yami no Matsuei OST) (Healing Hands)
AUGH YES THIS. This is an instrumental piece, but just the title...yes. Yes yes yes. To make the world around me a better place and to touch the lives of others, and to be able to heal them, reassurance and comfort and all of that...wow, this one was really perfect. :)


WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
Fantasies Come True - Avenue Q Original Cast Recording
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. 
In the context of that song....AHAHAHAHHAHAH. 
But really, if you look at the bigger picture...yeah, this kind of makes sense. I do try to believe that fantasies--dreams, hopes, wishes--can come true. :)


WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
Page of Cups - Enigma
AKSLDJFAKLJSDAKLJDAKLDFJA. Um um um wow. Yeah, okay. Had to look up the meaning (I so don't know my tarot, lol) and just...wow. I don't know how accurately it portrays my friends' thoughts, but...yeah, this sounds a LOT like me, heh! I might make this my new favourite tarot card. :) (Click for the description I read)

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT VERY OFTEN?
Careless Whisper - George Michael
Um...yeah, I don't have much for this. ^^; According to this meme, so far it seems I spend a lot of time in regret and in wishing...and yeah, I suppose sometimes I do dwell on the past, and wonder if I screwed things up with friends of mine...but not all that often, not anymore ^^;


WHAT IS 2+2?
The 7th Horcrux - The Remus Lupins
Ahahaha, Remus failed Arithmancy XD I...don't really have an explanation for this. Unless if refers to putting 2 and 2 together and realizing that Harry was the 7th Horcrux, before JK actually revealed it in the book...? Lol, NO DEEP SOULSEARCHING ANSWERS HERE NOPE NOPE


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Escape From Azkaban - Ministry of Magic
...My best friend is going crazy in a wizarding prison and singing about breaking out? I'm not really sure how this relates to anything...(also wtf, two wrock songs in a row, jeebas)


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
r a i n - Gackt
Ouch, dark. Um...well, one of my most treasured memories of him took place in the rain, so there's that reference...and Gackt uses a lot of moon symbolism too, which has special meaning...and then there's this line: "An unmoving hand of time in my heart touched the never fading thoughts...the dream flooded in gentle sunlight vanished into the blanched night sky." Which is kind of true. I think about him, a lot, and I know I always will. The love I have for him isn't going to just fade away, and there's a piece of me that's always going to remain locked in those years, just in case the chance ever comes around again. 

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
Itsumo Nando Demo - Hisaishi Joe (Spirited Away OST)
ANOTHER Japanese song?! Geez! I swear, I don't have THAT much Japanese music...>_>
Reading the translation of these lyrics makes me cry, especially as it relates to this question. "I've found a brightness, it's always with me." The idea that no matter how many times you fall down, you end up looking up at the sky and realizing just how blue it can be...finding the brightness and the newness and the worth in life even when it is broken around you. 
I like to think that can apply to me. :)


WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
Galvanize the Empire - Party Ben
Dude. This is from the "Castiel the BAMF" fanmix I acquired. XD Apparently I want to be Darth Vader. Sweet. 


WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Up is Down - Hans Zimmer
Oh god yes. The world turns upside down, everything I think I know is wrong, I'm literally head over heels...take your pick. He smiles at me and the world, and my stomach, does flip flops. ^///^


WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
Poker Face - Lady GaGa
...I really have nothing to say to this.


WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
Sunset Horizons - Yoko Shimomura (KHII OST)
Another lyric-less song, but I think the symbolism of the title is neat. Bring me that horizon. There's always something beyond, even at the going down of the sun...


WHAT IS YOUR HOBBY/INTEREST?
Furious Angel - Rob Dougan (Matrix Reloaded OST)
I choose to interpret this as Castiel, thanks to the earlier appearance of Galvanize the Empire...therefore, furious BAMF Dean-loving angels are greatly relevant to my interests. XD


WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Always Run to You - Bon Jovi
Gonna make a leap with this one...back to the love thing. No matter what he's done or what history we have or how long it's been...I will always, always run to him if the chance ever comes. I will love him with at least a tiny piece of my heart until my dying day. 


WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
Anduril - Howard Shore (RotK Soundtrack)
Forged from the shards of something broken. Many of my friends come from the edges of social spheres--the geeks, the nerds, the gamers.  But together, we make something strong and shining and bright, a symbol of hope--and fucking badass to boot. Yes? Reaching? ...Maybe.


WHAT'S THE WORST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN?
The Journey to the West - Hisaishi Joe (Mononoke Hime OST)
Death. I don't think there is a fate worse than death, whatever supervillains might say. It's not that I believe death is the end--jury's still out on what exactly an afterlife entails--but I do know that's it. That's the end. The life you live on earth is different from one you might live after your body's death, and the thought of leaving this world before my time, before I can do the things I want to do or make the differences I want to make, is the worst thing I could imagine. (Thanks to Anduril, of course, I am choosing to interpret this in an "Into the West" manner. Grey ships and what not, lol.)


HOW WILL YOU DIE?
Loner - Kansas
Oh dear I hope not. That's a depressing thought. 


WHAT IS THE ONE THING YOU REGRET?
In Between - Linkin Park
Um...I guess you could say I regret trying to change myself? Trying to be someone I'm not, and getting stuck in a place where I didn't really know who I was...otherwise known as junior high school. I pushed a lot of people away then, trying to figure out if it was better to be who I was, or who I thought they all wanted me to be, and...you get stuck. I got stuck. Sure, let's go with that interpretation. XD


WHAT MAKES YOU LAUGH?
In Which Draco and Harry Secretly Want to Make Out - The Whomping Willow
This song makes me freaking rofl. XD Although, again, the prevalence of wrock on this list is kind of freaking me out. All we need is a showing from Oliver Boyd and I think we'd have representation from every wrock band on my iPod...anyways. This song makes me giggle and snerk and grin like an idiot, especially since the rewrite that includes Dumbledore and Grindelwald. Yup yup. Nothing deep here. It's just a funny song.


WHAT MAKES YOU CRY?
End of an Era - Oliver Boyd and the Remembralls 
...What the fuck. What did I just say?!
I swear to god this is on shuffle...and only about 4 of my 60 GB of music is wrock. I swear. Jeez. Anyways, yeah. This song does make me cry. Um...a lot. And not just this song, but the idea behind it. The end of an era. The end of fandoms. The day the series finale airs, or the last book comes out, and watching as people leave or grow up or find new things to fangirl/fanboy over. Never any regrets, but...it is hard, and it is bittersweet, and I will cry like an infant after HPatDH Part 2 ends. 


WILL YOU EVER GET MARRIED?
Transformers - The Fallen Remix - Cheap Trick
...I don't know what to do with this. I honestly don't. Good song though. 


WHAT SCARES YOU THE MOST?
Full of Grace - Sarah McLachlan
To me, this song is about trying to find the courage to stay strong and not give up. Giving up scares me, almost as much as dying. The idea of being too weak--idek for what, but being too weak--it terrifies me. It keeps me up nights. That's this song to me.


DOES ANYONE LIKE YOU?
Nothing Else Matters - David Garrett
Well, I wouldn't say that D: Honestly, I'm not too chuffed if someone likes me (I'm assuming this is like like, not friend like, lol). Humperdinck, you were doing so well with these random choices....though I suppose I could also look at it like this. Maybe someone out there likes me, so much so that nothing else matters as much to them? Yeah, I'd be cool with that! :D


IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME, WHAT WOULD YOU CHANGE?
Crowdsurf Off a Cliff - Emily Haines & The Soft Skeleton
This entire SONG is about regret. Also from a really awesome Dean/Cas fanmix I forgot I had, whee. But I think...I'd be a little more willing to take risks? I guess? My life hasn't been long enough to want to change all that much. I dunno. Love this song though. 


WHAT HURTS RIGHT NOW?
A Promise to Return - Bear McCreary (Battlestar Galactica OST)
There are people who were supposed to come back who haven't. Knowing about all the disasters in the world, natural and manmade, wars and tsunamis and earthquakes...god, it hurts. All the people who left home saying, I promise to be back in time for supper. I promise we'll play a game tonight. I promise I'll take you on a lovely date this evening. I promise I'll be all right. God, it hurts. 


WHAT WILL YOU POST THIS AS?
Soldier - Hillsong


And thus ends the wasting of an hour of my life. XD I should have been asleep long before this...lol. Some pretty neat answers, some pretty fitting, some deep and meaningful, and some that just make me quirk a brow and say WTF. I swear my music is more than Japanese pop, instrumental soundtracks, and wizard rock. But I guess that's all we get tonight. XD

Podfic: Redshirt, by mijan

Torchwood - Jack - Giggle
OH GOD OH GOD

My first attempt at podficcery. I dearly hope mijan  doesn't hate this too much, I would love to podfic the rest of her stuff and add more glorious ST:XI and/also/or Kirk/McCoy to the archives of delicious fic. :D


Title: Redshirt
Authormijan  
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kirk, McCoy
Summary: The burden of a leader isn't the strain of heroics or the power of command. It's the constant knowledge that the lives of your people are in your hands, and the weight of guilt and loss when those lives slip through your fingers. Jim Kirk understands this now.
Warnings: Non-primary character death.

A/N:
Behind the cut (for spoilers)Collapse ) Please don't berate me for bad writing, here. This is unbeta'd, and definitely unfinished/unpolished. It was more an exercise than anything else. :)
