Yesterday No. 10 Downing Street released a statement regarding the treatment of Alan Turning post-WWII.

It's quite amazing.

The UK campaign was made public only last month, the international one just a few weeks after that.

The power of community, historical perspective and guilt can sure work fast.

More on that subject later, for now this is a Public Service Announcement.

Hope everyone is having/had/will have a good New Year's Eve.

The end comes not with a whimper but a bang and the beginning is not so much an event but a continuum.


I'm just spiffing.

And another little something to cheer the spirits:
Israel rejects Gaza truce calls
and Israel rebuffs Gaza ceasefire calls.
(same thing, different sources, BBC and Al-Jazeera respectively)

I just love that you know.

We want peace.
So very, very much.
We're willing to do whatever it takes!
Except talk to "the enemy".

Great going.

Goodbye 2008.
Hello 2009.
See you on the flip side.

Who want to see a movie about a Roman Emperor who was known for being a kick-ass and a gentle lover?

I do!

Especially when Daniel Craig (The new and second best James Bond) is going to play Emperor Hadrian - who was well known for a wall, fighting against the Second Jewish revolt and for his lover Antinous - whom he deified after Antinous' death.

Apropo bisexual men; Mr. Craig, in lieu of portraying a bisexual character, suggested that in the next Bond film, 007 have a Bond-Boy, instead of a Bond-Girl.

He is quoted in the Daily Star: "Why not? I think in this day and age fans would have accepted it. No-one blinks an eye"

I have a bit of a crush on Daniel Craig now.

Sent to me by [ profile] hemlock_sholes, who gets extra cookies for requesting that I blog about this.

I didn't think I'd feel so sad about them being dead.

Coffins of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev delivered to Israel-Lebanon border.

When I have time to seek out more information, I'll update on this subject.

At least the families have some peace of mind now and can mourn properly. Maybe the country will be able to do the same and move on.

Dear readers, old and new, faithful and random,

My fannish feelings towards Iron Man have produced unexpected results and I'm actually writing a fanfic.

Shocking, I know.

I will be posting these small pieces of fic on my LJ, they will be completely cut for your convenience and hopefully won't cause any of you to leave screaming from my livejournal.

I am not changing anything, this is not becoming a Fan journal; the media, political, life things and misc. fangrrl things (which, yes I know, don't make up a huge portion of this LJ) will not be disturbed by the addition of fic to this journal.
I'm not altering the layout, background or structure of my livejournal.
Merely adding to the existing one.

This is primarily for self expression, of which, as you know, I have a lot.

And just to prove to you that I have not abandoned my regular programming... stay tuned to my next entry.

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
