Long time no see!

I´m sorry if I haven´t been around for your important news.  I´m just picking up where I left off, and I´m going crazy trying to catch all the wincest and wee!chesters I´ve missed. If you want to leave me a few links, I won´t complain.

I like to think I´m pretty familiar with the way things work by now (I wouldn´t say I´ve seen it all, not by far, but I´ve seen enough to have some sense in me) but there are moments when the world still manages to amaze me. Bad amazed, in this case.

It´s so very, very medieval that I simply can´t  believe that the government has let it go on, that people can actually enjoy seeing a cow die slowly and painfully, that China´s education level is so low that they still think that pieces of tiger can solve any problems at all. It´s like Japan killing wales and sharks (and I really expected better of them). How is it possible that these people have so little social concience?

I´m from South America, mind you, a place most people consider a part of the third world, but I´ll have you know that something like this would never, ever happen here. So, if China is getting such a big economical drive, what´s going on?

Thi reminds me of the Roman circus, about the killing and the worthlessnes of all kinds of life there was in that time, about the lack of compassion in humanity at large. I am not a vegetarian, I ´ve witnessed animal death because I lived in the country when I was little, for a series of reasons I think that consumption of meat is overall a possitive thing. But not like this. Never like this.

The searching for entertainment that gives you a bit of a rush is really getting out of control. Some people have lived such a sheltered lives that they can´t seem to understand that animals are dangerous, that actions have concecuences. This is just as stupid as people getting into cages and feeding great white sharks just so they can see them up close. Now the sharks are following the boats up to the beaches because humans= food. People that keep buying attack dogs (pit bulls, dobermans, Napolitan Mastiffs and other such) as pets and then never even bother to educate them. Attack dogs were breed for attacking, therefore they tend to attack. Not such a hard to grasp concept, I think. Having one is a big risk, not recommended for anyone but hardcore dog owners, but to have one and not train it? You are pretty much setting yourself up to children chomping or something just as bad.

So, stupid people. There should be a test you need to pass before being allowed to breed.

*sighs* Well, then. let´s get into happier news.

I want to have grandpuppies!! *beams*. Just the though gives me warm fuzzies. Dean!love and Sammy give me warm fuzzies to, but that is rather OT. I felt the need to say it anyway.

I have Photoshop again! Yey! The CS version, mind you. I´m trying to manip a delicious Sirius Black just to practise, and then I´m off to manip a Sam´n´Dean Titanic manip. Just in case you were wondering, no, I didn´t come up with that one, [profile] jewels667 did , but I think it´s a smashing idea.
So, does anyone have or can get me a big Titanic screencap? Preferably one of these, but something like this or similar can work too. I sort of need one that´s about 700 pixels and I can´t find any.

Totally unrelated, but

Hi, I remember you and solusromveritus were working on a HP fic called Verto Genus. I was wondering what happened to it? Did you guys ever finish it or is it shelved? If it is shelved, would you mind someone else picking it up and finishing it (with proper credit of course)? There is a HP community just for that purpose. Well, either way, please reply to this.

Wow, someone remembered that old thing? =P

Well, no, we didn´t finish it. She was the actual author, ya´know, and I was just a busy busybody. I have no idea if we even posted all we had, because I remember we had the sketches for a bit of it.

Anyway, SRV has been MIA for so long I have no idea if she is even around in LJ anymore. Far as I´m concerned, go ahead. it´s ghastly, but, yeah fun. Would you like me to look up what we had, or would you rather run with what there is?

Great, thanks! I'd love to get whatever else you have, so I can put it in the community. I really enjoyed the fic, so I'd love to see it finished :).

*smiles* Do you have what we posted around, somewhere? I have no idea how much of it we did actually write, as we toyed so much with the ideas. There is.... well, I shan´t tell you until I have dug up all the details. Just point me tha right way and I´ll try to find the rest

Well, here's the link to the one: It was on my story alert, which is how I found it again, when I was cleaning up my alert list.

Dear Sammy allbitchy, I had forgotten how ghastly and fun that was! I told Sol that she should meat out the last 4 chapters or so, but we never did get around to it...

I think I have one more chapter and some sketches. I have to check some discs, though. I´m pretty certain there was a version too.

So, once I get all the stuff I just... let you know? Because I´d really like to get to talk to anyone that took it up (it) just to see where it ends up at.

Sorry, I've had a hectic week and I forgot to reply to this. Anyway, this is the site I'll be posting the info to:

If anyone takes the fic up, I can let you know, so they might contact you or vice versa with the way it's going.
