Speaking of Pinboard and Delicious today, one of the things that Delicious facilitated was being able to bookmark your own fanfic, then click a little link next to the bookmark and see all the comments and tags of other people who had bookmarked the same URL. 

So I sometimes checked on particularly new or controversial fanfics of mine, and I once found that someone had bookmarked a fanfic with “Good, but no werewolves.” Since this was a House MD fic, and not an AU, like, no werewolves had been implied, I was a little perplexed. 

I shared this strange review with @junietwohundred​, who is much wiser and more cynical in the ways of fandom than I am, and she said “Look at the rest of their bookmarks. I bet I know what you’ll find.”

Sure enough, this person had like…four hundred bookmarks, all rating every fic they had bookmarked on the presence or absence of werewolves. None of the comments were nasty or mean, it was just fanfic after fanfic – “Not enough werewolves.” “Excellent werewolves.”  “Interesting new werewolf ideas.”  “Werewolves are background only.” 

It was one of the most magnificently niche reccslists I’ve ever seen. I salute you, werewolf archivist, wherever you may be. I hope the werewolf tag on AO3 is constantly bustling for you.

via http://ift.tt/2jSobOY:According To Iranian Officials, Obama Administration Gave Unwritten Consent In The Nuclear Talks And In The JCPOA Negotiations For Iran To Develop Ballistic Missiles With A Range Of Only 2,000 km – That Is, Capable Of Striking Israel But Not Europe:


In statements, IRGC officials hinted that restrictions on the range of Iranian missiles so that they reach Israel but not Europe were part of the Iran deal. Thus, for instance, IRGC commander Mohammad Ali Jafari referred to the IRGC’s November 2, 2015 consent to UN Security Council Resolution 2231, saying: “One of the points in this resolution was the matter of restrictions, which some military elements feared. Therefore, we held meetings in [Iran’s] Supreme National Security Council, and also went to the Leader [Khamenei]. The [Iranian] negotiating team told the Westerners that we do not agree to these restrictions. They [the Westerners] said that these issues must be included in the resolution. Even when I met with the Leader, he said that there were no restrictions on developing defensive capabilities. The only restriction relates to nuclear missiles, which, obviously, we never wanted.”[10]

The next day, on November 3, 2015, Iranian Army chief of staff Hassan Firouzabadi referred to Jafari’s remarks, saying: “I confirm statements by the IRGC commander that Iran’s missile activity is not restricted. We will follow two restrictions: The first is mentioned in the JCPOA, in the matter of no nuclear planning, and the second is the range of 2,000 km, which has already been noted previously by all elements in Iran.”[11]

France’s politicians and community leaders have criticised the “intolerable” violence against Paris’ Jewish community, after a pro-Palestinian rally led to the vandalizing and looting of Jewish businesses and the burning of cars. 

please please please spread this around, please speak up about this, please let everyone know that this is not okay, please please please protect my people from a second kristallnacht, please 

Listen.  I love my followers and my mutuals dearly.  You know how occasionally I post something like ‘every Jew on this site has a list in their head of who reblogs what and who ignores posts about Jews’?  I’m talking about this shit.  I have been seeing things on my dash about the situation of Jews in France for over a year, but it’s coming from other Jews 99% of the time.  Please stop ignoring this.  This is literally history repeating itself and we can’t be the only ones calling it out again.
