October 16th, 2017 06:35 pm - Bandom: Untitled Frank Iero (SFW)
Fandom: Bandom (My Chemical Romance)

Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Frank Iero

Content Notes/Warnings: N/A

Medium: Black and red ink

Artist on DW/LJ: N/A

Artist Website/Gallery: [tumblr.com profile] alexzajfert

Why this piece is awesome: for one thing, it follows the red and black aesthetic of the art I recced previously. What really caught my eye about it, though, was that, for a simple portrait of a relaxed-looking Frank, there are certain touchtones. Among those, his penchant for wearing hats and 8948416854 layers of clothing. I also dig the geometric touches that enhance, rather than distract, from the overall piece.

October 16th, 2017 06:41 am - update rolling out
Hello trainers! An update began rolling out over the weekend. The patch notes are relatively minor -- "Various bug fixes and performance updates" -- so it doesn't look too exciting, but you never know.

October 15th, 2017 03:50 pm - Yuleswaps: Frequently Asked Questions [as of: October 2017]
Hello, beloved swappers! Don’t worry, swaps IS happening, as always! Sign-ups post will go up, ummmm, soon. I meant to kick us off around the beginning of the month, but #life #got overwhelmed by the idea of needing to rewrite this FAQ, tbh. Sorry!

This year! We have moved to Dreamwidth, because Yuletide has moved to Dreamwidth, and because it seems like most of our constituency has done the same. We will probably continue to crosspost to the Yuletide LJ community in some capacity, linking back to DW posts and providing a forum for LJ-only swappers to continue to ask questions and make contact when their yahoo emails inevitably fail. ;)

Tags will remain the same: “omnomnom” for candyswap, “who likes books” for bookswap, and “nice cuppa” for drinkswap (er, just as soon as I'm able to request their creation on DW). As on LJ, we strongly encourage swappers to track tags for the swaps they are interested in.

(Go to your DW Account Settings >> Notifications afterward, to make sure all the tags you wanted definitely took!)

And now…onward!

FAQ! )

But seriously, when are sign-ups going to be open for Yuleswaps 2017?

Soon, I swear. Tonight, I hope, but realistically, might be more like tomorrow or Tuesday. I will get it together. I promise. Swaps will happen.

Happy swapping, swappers!!!!

October 15th, 2017 04:07 pm - epsilon-delta definition of a limit

For any and all real epsilon greater than zero, there exists a real delta greater than zero, such that for any real x within the open interval (a minus delta, a plus delta), the function f(x) will always exist within an epsilon-interval of the limit L, i.e. (L minus epsilon, L plus epsilon).

More simply put,

where x-naught is a.

I just returned from a trip which included a brief stay at a beach. There were a number of residents there, including tiny clams that would appear and then vanish with each wave in and out. (We tried to take pictures but they were tough). On the other hand, these guys were everywhere:

October 15th, 2017 11:52 am - Registration is now open for CON.TXT 2016!

If you pre-registered at CON.TXT 2016, we will be automatically registering you with Eventbrite, and you will get a confirmation email at the address you gave us when you registered. If you do not receive that confirmation by October 25th or are unsure if you already pre-registered, please email us at registration@con-txt.net.

Introducing our theme for CON.TXT 2018: The Joy of Fandom

Let’s face it, things in the real world are starting to look a bit dystopic out there, and we’ve begun to wonder if we’ve entered the darkest timeline. It’s a time when we all need Bob Ross to paint us some happy little trees, or some happy little clouds.

When we REALLY need that fix-it story.

The joy of fandom is our ability to remix, reshape, and rewrite our favorite media into something that pleases us. We change endings, we bring characters back to life, we reimagine Harry Potter as South Asian or Peggy Carter as Captain America, we put hobbits in coffee shops, boybanders in space, and Alexander Hamilton in a zombie apocalypse, we explore infinite timeline diversions, and most of all, we make our favorite characters get laid, fall in love, destroy their enemies, save the world, and buy some curtains. And always remember, there are no mistakes in Bob Ross paintings, just happy accidents.

Fandom is not always perfect, and it’s not always the safe space we wish it were, but at least it’s not the real world. With that in mind, we invite you to come and take a break with us, hang out with other fans in person, and celebrate each other and the media we love!

October 15th, 2017 10:29 am - Untitled Team Machine by Touchedbymisha/Worrynet (SFW)
Fandom: Person of Interest
Characters/Pairing/Other Subject: Reese, Finch, Carter, Root, Shaw, Fusco, Bear, The Machine
Content Notes/Warnings: none
Medium: traditional pen sketch
Artist on DW/LJ: n/a
Artist Website/Gallery: [deviantart.com profile] worrynet / [tumblr.com profile] touchedbymisha
Why this piece is awesome: The artist did review/reaction sketches for many episodes of the show (to find at their Deviantart POI gallery), which were always lots of fun and distinctive in style. I'm linking to this Team Machine picture - done in reaction to the show's PCA win - because it has all of the characters of Team Machine at once, which is pretty rare, and it shows well what's so fun about these little sketches.

October 15th, 2017 02:48 am - Gearing up to attempt a better 9 weeks. Help?
Did this a few months ago. Trying again. I have become a more active poster, but only by a bit. I have been rewatching things, adjusting to a new job, and so on, so it felt time to do it again.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm a long-time internet citizen with too many fannish interests to count. I'm a high school English teacher in my first year of teaching, so I'm constantly exhausted. My commute to work is so long that it's having an impact on my health. I'm 26 and employed but live with my parents and dogs. I'm sometimes too much of an open book online, but I'm an introvert.

Top 5 fandoms: Stargate SG-1. Avatar: The Last Airbender. Amorphous DC stuff including Young Justice, Wonder Woman, and Arrow nostalgia at the moment. Always Doctor Who. YouTube stuff?

I mostly post about: Screams into the void, be they about fandom thoughts that I have no other outlet for or things about my real life I don't want to directly put in anyone's lap. Also tons of Dear Author Letters because I have an exchange addiction.

I rarely post about: I don't actually post about politics and religion often, but I don't shy away from them either.

My three last posts were about: Two Dear Author Letters and one post about how terrified I am to return to work on Monday.

How often do you post?: A few times a month at least since I started making an effort, sometimes more with motivation.

How about commenting?: Every time I go through my reading page, I try to find at least one thing to comment on unless it's redundant. I don't always succeed, but I am a big proponent of reciprocity of interaction for fanworks and am a generally supportive person when I can be.

October 15th, 2017 02:51 am - sorta this new thing
Name: Alene works for now
Age: 45
Location: northeast Texas

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I'm outdoorsy yet cursed with horrible grass allergies. I believe in love but never for me. I'm a hermit who's regrettably a nurturer and a fixer. I rarely meet a book I won't devour. I have a 90% chance of turning the wrong way at an intersection.

Top 5 fandoms: Lucifer, Court of Thorns and Roses, all things Middle Earth, Guild Hunter, varying bandfic

I mostly post about: Travelry, hikery, kayakery

I rarely post about: Squashy feeling-things

My three last posts were about: State parks, the TPWD geocache challengs, and anti-aging products

How often do you post? Depends on if I've done anything interesting lately

How about commenting? Not friends with anyone or in any communities yet, but when I am, it varies. I get chatty phases and quiet phases.

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!
