Second attempt to do this year's AO3 Hits/Kudos Meme.

Top Ten by Hit Count:
1. Innovations Hits:16436 (WHAT?!) (Twelve'n'Clara before it was on the actual telly.)
2. Honey Hits: 3738 (the Elementary Sex Pollen fic)
3. Three Hits: 3431 (Eleven/River/Clara pr0n)
4. Sexy Phone Sex Hits: 2994 (Matt/David cracky RPF)
5. Four Times the Doctor and Clara Shared a Bed and One Time They Didn't Hits: 2051 (self-explanatory)
6. A Dangerous Game Hits: 1964 (slightly dark Eleven/Clara pr0n)
7. A Controlled Substance Hits: 1768 (Twelve/Clara sexytiems)
8. The Kingston Hits: 1766 (cracky Matt/Alex rpf)
9. Nice Girls Don't Hits: 1763 (Eleven/Amy adultery)
10. Succubus Hits: 1667 (Twelve/Clara post-ep wanking)

- Unsurprisingly, porn is really popular.
- As is cracky RPF.
- What caused the top one to have more than four times the hits of the second one?!


Top Ten by Kudos:
1. Four Times the Doctor and Clara Shared a Bed and One Time They Didn't Kudos: 176 (what it says on the tin)
2. Honey Kudos: 105 (yay for sex bees)
3. Sticks & Stones Kudos: 100 (Twelve/Missy)
4. Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) Kudos: 87 (Twelve/Missy)

9. Succubus Kudos: 63 (Twelve/Clara wankingfic)
10. Open Your Eyes Kudos: 63 (Twelve/River post-regeneration angst thing)

- I don't understand the appeal of the Four Times thing, it is not really that good or even very funny.
- There is clearly mad support for Ten/River out there somewhere.
- Less porn here, which may suggest that my porn is bad or that people don't kudos while wanking.
- Behold the love of Twissy.


THERE NOW I HAVE DID THIS MEME OKAY.

Archaeologists in China have discovered six miles of ruins on the border of the Gansu province and the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region that they say is a stretch of the Great Wall. Experts have thought that the Wall had extended this far north, but this is the first physical evidence to support that theory. Not well preserved, the ruins are as short as three feet in places.

Hornsey Library
2.00 pm
7.4 km from Covent Garden

This is my library bruv! You get me?

I'm continuously amazed by the variety of the types of libraries I'm visiting. Hornsey Library is a flat roof, big windows 1960s affair with a rather nice interior and its own coffee shop. I like this trend of having coffee shops in libraries becaise I like to have coffee when I'm reading.
Vicky and Valeria
I was welcome to Hornsey by Vicky Orekoya and Valeria Padalino who had everything ready to go, including books at a discount and not a a bad audience for lunch time on a Sunday.

Up next - Kensington and Chelsea and Kilburn

I mean, aside from child and pets and house and my own bed: Three weeks worth of books sent, which I will catch up with and post during the week. As Athena said: “It’s like Christmas, but for work.” Yes, well.

In other news, I am home. And I get to be home for, like, four whole days. And then I leave again. I am determined to enjoy these next four days fully.

The fine folks behind the official Firefly Online YouTube account sent a chill down our collective spines when they offered a short glimpse of Nathan Fillion recording his lines as Mal for the upcoming video game based on the much-beloved series.

With a die-hard legion of fans eagerly awaiting a chance at playing in the very universe they so love, there’s been a lot of pressure to get everything right. How does one go about that? Easy. Get the band cast back together.

There’s been a steady stream of buzz and excitement centered around the game, and rightly so. Since early February, the Firefly Online YouTube account has been posting teaser videos revealing Serenity’s crew in the studio recording their lines for the game. Half the fun is in the interview questions that they’re asked as a part of the cast reveal, often focusing on what it’s like to return to the universe.

You can catch the entire playlist of returning cast videos below, along with a few new character introductions.

I wonder if there are any classes or workshops running nearby on how to photograph knitted items under less than perfect conditions. My ideal syllabus would include skills like taking reasonable photos with a cellphone camera, whipping together a neutral background in a small, cluttered apartment, and a short walk outdoors pointing out what kinds of things in an urban environment make for good backdrops vs poor ones. I think using the beige floor pillow has mostly worked, in that it's neutral but warm (unlike a bright white bedsheet), but it's also always looks kinda dirty, no matter how many times I run it through the wash. It also won't work with any of the larger shawl projects I have on the needles right now.
