One Kindle Fire tablet, free to good home

 I have one, several year old, Kindle Fire 7 in perfect working condition. It has 26 gb of usable harddrive space (after OS etc). Case, charger and screen protector included. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It was a generous gift from a dear friend a few years ago, I got good use of it, and it is time for it to move on.

I would like to give it to a good home with someone who actually needs it - or at least someone who would make good use of it and does not currently have a working tablet.

Star Wars brainstorming helpers wanted?

So I’m trying to write a plot-centric Rey & Finn or Finn/Rey (not sure yet, depends on how bad I am at writing romance) fic set in the same universe as Let The Dice Fall Where They May, my Phasma plots a First Order Coup while Maz and Lando just sort of plot in general post-TFA fic.

I’ve come up with some world building stuff I want to use, and I definitely know I want Luke, Leia and Poe to also have significant roles, but beyond that, I’m stalled out. Now’s your chance to foist plot bunnies or things you want to see in fic on me! (Note for people who know who they are: Kylo Ren and his parentage will not be a significant part of this fic)

If you’re interested, reply, message me, or email me at fitzrose at email dot msn dot com

Note: No, I don’t need to know you personally yet, as long as you don’t act creepy. You can also read this entry on Dreamwidth (comment count unavailable comments)

FinnRey exchange author letter

Watching The Force Awakens, I loved both Finn and Rey on their own as equally interesting and strong characters, but I also really loved their interactions and the way they worked together.

I love adventure stories, slice of life in space/world building, future fic, time travel and both happy and happy-for-now endings. Epistolary, Five Things and experimental story formats are all fine with me! One thing I'd be fascinated to see is them in your take on any era or version of the Star Wars Universe past, present, future or alternate timeline. I'm not a purist, mix and match or go wild! Alternately, I'd love to see a what-happens-next set at some point after The Force Awakens, or any kind of AU your heart desires. 

I don't care whether the story is about them getting together, if they're in an established romantic relationship, if it is a pre-relationship story full of UST, or if it is just a really, really close Rey and Finn gen story.

What I am not interested in is a traditional het romance novel style story in which one character is the main character and the other is only their love interest, or a story about pregnancy, infidelity or rape.

Takarazuka Flashback Stream: Jazzmania (Shibuki Jun version) & Revue '99

Shibuki Jun in Jazzmania
SUPER impromptu stream (forgive the terrible picture): I’ve had a tumultuous last couple weeks (lots of downs, and a big up), but things seem to be settling down now, and dammit, it’s Pride here in Brooklyn and I need something sparkly to celebrate.

SO! Come share an All-Revue Takarazuka stream with me tonight! If you don't know what Takarazuka is, it is an all-female musical theater company in Japan, and their revues are Vegas-style song and dance extravaganzas.

Jazzmania (Shibuki Jun lead version), and Revue ‘99 (Aika Mire in a Revue-themed revue) possibly with other surprises after. 8:30 pm EST at https://cytu.be/r/Flashback_Project , come join me! You can also read this entry on Dreamwidth (comment count unavailable comments)

Legend of the Galactic Heroes Takarazuka stream!



Legend of the Galactic Heroes
@ Takarazuka stream, tonight 5/28, 9 pm EST on https://cytu.be/r/Flashback_Project

LITERAL space opera!

Yoshiki Tanaka’s science fiction series “Legend of the Galactic Heroes” aka “Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu” and the all-female musical theater of the Takarazuka Revue. There are no subtitles yet, but as a  book fan, I will be able to explain the plot in chat.

Note, if you like Star Wars Clone Wars I suspect you’ll like Legend of the Galactic Heroes. The first three novels are out in English, and the new anime is supposedly due out this fall. (There’s a very, very, very long 90′s anime of it bootleg translated on Youtube, but you could just, you know. Read the books.)

The European timezone rescreening screening to come in the near future.
