If you're from the UK and you believe in freedom of speech and an uncensored interenet, you really need to sign this petition. There are others floating about, but that particular one is the best way to ensure that your voice gets heard. It's hosted on the directgov website and addresses parliament directly. If it gets more than 100,000 signatures, it becomes eligible for discussion in the House of Commons.

Everyone's been getting so worked up over SOPA -- and rightly so -- that ACTA seems to have slipped under the radar. This is hugely problematic, because ACTA is a similar bill, but it has the potential to be far more damaging than SOPA ever could be.

Some people seem to have this misconception that ACTA is the 'European SOPA', but that simply isn't true. It's a global treaty, and it's already been signed by eight countries, including the US, Japan, New Zealand and Singapore. Europe votes on Thursday. If they vote 'no', the bill will have to be taken back to the drawing board and reformulated, which should buy us some time at the very least.

If you think this doesn't affect you, you're wrong. If ACTA passes, it could well signal the end of the internet as we know it, and that isn't an exaggeration. It's not just about watching movies and television online. If ACTA passes, sites like YouTube, Livejournal, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook and even Google and Wikipedia could become impossible to maintain. ACTA would allow ISPs to monitor your net activity and cut off internet access for your entire household if one person is suspected of breaching copyright. Think Big Brother is Watching. I don't think I need to emphasise just how damaging it can be to be without internet access in this day and age, when we rely so heavily on technology.

It's not only bloggers and fandom that would be affected, either. Small businesses, independent film-makers and unsigned musicians who have previously found their niche online would also suffer hugely, and would be at risk of being bullied into submission by Hollywood and multinational corporations under accusations of copyright infringement. All those artists who found fame by uploading covers of songs to YouTube would never have had the opportunity to do so under ACTA, as those cover versions would be prohibited.

I know the internet has its problems, but to my mind it's the single greatest invention to come out of modern times, and it would be an absolute travesty if we were to lose that now. From a personal point of view, I can't even put into words how important this is to me. I've met some of my closest friends through the internet and online fandom, people whom I would likely never have met without it, and it's given me this amazing social support system. I don't want that to end here, and I want to preserve it for future generations so that they can have the same experience and opportunities I've been given through my online interactions.

I know that opinions on the seriousness of copyright infringement and online piracy vary wildly, but that isn't really the point. Internet giants such as Google are opposed to this bill, and it's pretty safe to say that they're not in favour of copyright infringment, as anyone who's ever had a fanvid taken down from YouTube will be painfully aware. Whatever your stance on copyright, this isn't the way to go about dealing with it. This is dangerous legislation that impeaches on some of our most basic human rights, such as the right to privacy and freedom of speech.

So if you're from the UK, please, please sign the petition. If you hail from elsewhere in the world, there may well be similar movements in your own country, but I think the most effective thing anybody can do right now is to keep talking about this. Talk about it on Livejournal, on Twitter, on Tumblr, on Facebook, and anywhere else you can think of. Make sure this issue is never far from people's minds. The internet is an amazingly powerful tool: let's utilise it while we still have the chance.

Please repost and spread the word :)

SAY NO TO ACTA!

Please consider reposting this, especially if you have a large proportion of UK flisties. And please consider spreading the word via other platforms: Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, your own personal network.

Aarch/Artegor: here to catch you

Galactik Football Season 3 Episode 14

 So, the episode starts when Paradisia explodes and everyone panics as the ship shakes. Thran and Ahito hold hands (gosh the shippers must be loving this), D'jok and Mei are all clingy, Micro-ice keeps repeating that it must be a nightmare. When the explosion is over, Mark picks Micro-ice by the ankle, saying that it's all over. Micro-ice tells Mark that he's never been so happy to see him. It's kind of a weird scene- I mean, I know Micro-ice is short but I don't really think that it would be that easy to lift him up. Paradisia is pretty much decimated which makes Micro-ice sad because the planet used to be beautiful...

Aarch/Artegor: like old times

Galactik Football Season 3 Episode 13 Recap

The Episode begins with The Pimp Magnus Blade and the Pirates discussing the fate of Paradisia. The Pimp Magnus Blade admits that what is happening to Paradisia is his fault. Either Sonny or Corso (I'm not sure which) basically says that it's too late to apologise...it's tooooo late! Anyways, he's still insistent that they need to stay for the final match. Corso is opposed to his idea. However, The Pimp Magnus then explains that the final is the only chance for them to get the guy who is behind it all and that after the final everyone will be scattered. This makes a fair amount of sense and therefore Brim Simbra and Sonny agree to it despite being worried about the risk. Brim Simbra offers to help should anything go wrong, confidently adding that he has the power to. WOO! When the Flux Society actually decide to do something, they're actually pretty cool.

Rome: Brutus's rebirth

Drabble: Senseless (Antinous/Telemachus)

Title: Senseless
Author notes: So...I ended up writing Odyssey fanfic last night when I was trying not to panic about the (then) upcoming Latin Exam...I'm not sure whether to feel proud or ashamed of myself. Set before Book 1 of the Odyssey. Definitely not written in proper Homeric style. I always kinda hate writing for new fandoms...it's so nervewracking...But I ship this pairing so hard, I couldn't resist. Not my best work anyways.  
Pairings: Antinous/Telemachus, one-sided Antinous/Penelope
Warnings: dub-con(ish), passive!Telemachus, rated T for suggestiveness.

Galactik Football Season 3 Episode 12 Recap

The episode starts off where the previous one left off- just before the penalty shoot out. In the changing room, Nikki whinges to the Pimp Lord Phoenix about D'jok not revealing the 'secret' to scoring against Ahito. The Pimp Lord Phoenix puts his hand on top of D'jok head but D'jok punches it away (with there being a hilarious size comparison between their hand sizes, seriously- is the Pimp meant to be human? Because he's just so massive it's kind of unbelievable- it's hardly like D'jok is short or anything).

Galactik Football Season 3 Episode 11 Recap

The episode starts where the last one left off- Tia and Micro-ice surface in Vega's lair and are suprised to see the size of it and the machines that are in it. Predictably, some security robots come along. Meanwhile, the Flux Society are discussing the fact that Paradisia has it's own Flux and Brim Simbra asks Simbai what's going on- she answers that the Pimp Phoenix only knows about the earthquakes. Brim Simbra is disturbed by the entire situation and it's vaguely implied...wait for it...that the Flux Society might actually do something! *Shock* *Horror* But yeah, we all know the Pirates are going to end up sorting it out.
