Handbook of Useful Information


Mouse and Snake is a hub for my Sims 2 custom content and snapshot, and occasionally, various artistic nonsense. I have very much love for Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts (more accurately, for Organization XIII,) as well as urban and grungy themes. I loves me some sim!dirt and rust.

This journal contains yaoi/gay themes.
There will also be adult-themed Sims 2 snapshots and fan artwork, but no adult images of real people, ever.


Under the cut
is the index of Sims2/FF-based fics and interludes hosted here.
For new custom content, please pay a visit to Land of Doom.

I loves me some sim!dirt and rust.

Congress wants to take away your internet.

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] dynamicsymmetry at Congress wants to take away your internet.
Folks, I know you're tired of me yelling at you, but you should be aware that there's a hearing this morning being held by the US House Judiciary Committee on a "copyright" bill that will essentially break the entire internet.

You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.

From the link above:

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.

It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).


This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.

Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.

And/or

I'd Like to Ask for Feedback

...but I'm not sure how would be best.

It's for my Silver and Cold comic - which is in no danger of cancellation or interest loss on my end - but... There's just stuff about it I'd like to bounce off of someone else.

SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by [livejournal.com profile] rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.


This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.


It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.



---------

Agents? Publishers? Listen to me carefully: GAY PEOPLE BUY NOVELS, TOO. Whatever straight readers you may lose to including ONE gay character when FOUR others are hetero, you're going to get back double or triple from gay readers who are thrilled to have a romance they can actually relate to for once. Why would you continue to ignore and erase a virtually untapped demographic WITH MONEY TO SPEND ON YOUR BOOKS?

One day, you're going to realize that this behavior is no different than telling an author to remove a character just because they're black, or female, or Jewish. When that day comes, you're going to be kicking yourselves for years over all the potential sales you've lost, just because you had to hold fast to outdated and bigoted views. What people can or cannot read is not and never will be up to you. This story WILL get out and be told, one way or another. You aren't "protecting" anyone. What IS up to you is whether you'll be the publishers and agents to profit from it, or if you'll just sit back and allow another firm to rake in the cash from an unexpected best seller.

You're business people, right?
