First Trump came for the Mexicans
And I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Mexican.
Then Trump came for our private healthcare,  and I didn’t speak up because I figured Hillary or Bernie would do the same thing anyway.
Then Trump came for public property by way of corporate asset forfeiture, and I didn’t speak up because I rent an apartment.
Then Trump came for the Muslims, and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Muslim.
Then Trump said “We should shut down the internet” ….and then it was too late for anyone to speak up.

A.N.G.E.L.S. Recruit: Brian Waters
Brian Waters
code name "Targeter"
Born: October 4, 1989 in Leeds, UK
5 foot 11 inches. Blonde hair, green eyes.
Background: Originally a member of the British SAS, he was recruited by a (classified) British agency who also gave him an arm-mounted xenon laser weapon.  Political maneuvering in Parliament meant the funding for his agency was cut.  After a brief but effective tour in the Middle East, he was recommended for the Guardian A.N.G.E.L.S. division.  His laser almost sent him to the Avenging division instead, but he's neither a heavy enough hitter nor trigger-happy enough to qualify.  He is happy enough to be a Guardian.
Personality: He gets along well with most other operatives, if a bit distant.  Only two things really annoy him; totally disorganized people, and foolish political maneuverings by politicians and military brass who aren't "on the ground" facing the threats.  Good at taking orders, going into action and saving the day; not so good at f

Then and Now, part 2
by Jay McIntyre
Brent, London
12 February, 1993

The TARDIS materialized in a dirty alley. A bitter wind was blowing, and snow was coming down fairly heavily.
There was a pause, then the door opened. The Doctor, Amy and Rory stepped out, all dressed for the winter weather.
The Doctor looked up, expression unreadable. “A cold winter's night in London....”
“So?” Rory asked.
“It reminds me of something.”
“You've been everywhere,” Amy pointed out. “Everywhere reminds you of something.”
“Something specific,” the Doctor said. “Something from long ago.”
“How long ago?” Rory asked. “From before the.....the....”
“Before the Time War,” the Doctor agreed. “Yes.” He drew a deep breath. “Come along, Mr. and Mrs. Pond!”
Amy chuckled, and Rory sighed. They followed him.
The snow was heavy; Amy hoped they wouldn’t be out in it

Then and Now, part 1
by Jay McIntyre
Falmouth, Cornwall.
1 September, 2011.

The harbor was busy, but not too busy for the locals to start in amazement when a blue box ground into reality on one of the docks.
Inside that blue box, the Doctor and Peri saw everyone staring, via the view screen.
“That.....wasn't supposed to happen,” the Doctor muttered, for once not nearly as loud as his garish patchwork coat.
“Admit it Doctor,” Peri said, “You've had a harder time piloting the TARDIS since you regenerated.”
The Doctor emitted a genuine harrumph, restored to form by her jibe. “I'll have you know that this incarnation is a vast improvement on the last, young lady! I've become the flower of Gallifreyan elegance!”
“I'm a botanist,” she reminded him wearily, “And you're not so much a flower as a weed.”
The Doctor's eyes flashed, and for a moment she saw real anger there; but then the light faded and he snorted.

Fallen Angels: In the Shadows....
Page One
Mac welcomes the team to the briefing, shushes their usual banter, and briefs them on a henge recently discovered off the western coast of Ireland....
Page Two
Specifically, this is Croaghnakeela Island, off Ireland’s Atlantic coast. (a real place, I looked it up)  A shadowy figure with a distinctive ring on his finger is briefing his troops on securing “the relic below the henge.”  Most of these are garden variety troopers, but the shadow figure’s lieutenant is a skilled swordsman, probably some sort of bastard offspring of aristocracy, with training to know how to use his weapon, no doubt an ancient family heirloom.  Maybe magical?
(I entertained the shadow figure having a video communication with Viper here, then dismissed it as an unnecessary complication)

High speed transport (supersonic jet?) gets the team to Ireland quickly, but getting to the island is another matter.  Mac has a se

The Man who didn't know How To Be a Father, part 2
The son and his friend eventually found other people to help them climb out of the river.  But it was a near thing; they almost drowned.
The father who didn't know how to be a father didn't apologize for his cowardice, or offer any real help.  But for the son's birthday, he did take him to a mall to buy shoes.  
Now, the non-father was getting older, and moved slow.  But the son was also slow, with a neurological limp since he was born.  So he was walking slow with the old man, trying to help him along.  The old man became snippy and demanded the son move slower.  The son put up with this as best he could, then finally tried to help the old man to move faster, then finally left him behind.  The old coward tried to remonstrate with him, and the son turned and took his not-father's hands in his, pleading with him, trying to explain he hadn't been moving too fast.
The old man's ability to talk finally failed him, and he replied "Don't aggravate me."

The Gar Logan Show #2: Starfire
Announcer:  It's the return of the Gar Logan show!  Here’s your host, Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar Logan!
*Gar dances out to wild applause*

Gar: Hey everybody!  Sorry it’s been so long, but we had a falling out with one of our sponsors.  Some people say they’re fans of certain characters, but aren’t unless they’re written to their exact specs.  Some people claim to be students of history, but are very selective about it.  And some people try to give financial advice when they’ve never had to fend for themselves.
*crowd goes ooooooh then applauds*
Gar:  *nods solemnly*  Sometimes you have to leave the wrong person behind.  But enough of that.  We’re gonna talk about someone whose proper characterization has been left behind instead.  That would be my next guest, Starfire!

Apprentice Plagueis
“Plagueis.”
Darth Plagueis’ eyes opened.
His master stood before him, frowning.  “Now is not the time for sleep.”
Plagueis rose briskly.  “Not sleeping Master, meditating.  I have always tried to emulate your avoidance of sleep.”
Darth Tenebrous shook his head.  “Bith do not need sleep. Muun do.  And while I applaud your will and determination in the matter,” his voice hardened, “There is no try.  Achieve your goal, or do not attempt it.  Even the Jedi understand this.”
Plagueis sighed inwardly.  “Yes, Master.”  Tenebrous did not shock him with lightning often.  He favored other, more subtler ways of disciplining him.  Plagueis had understood for some time now that Sith Apprentices killed their Masters for reasons beyond gaining greater power and becoming Masters themselves.
Sometimes he wished he had lived back in the days of the Sith Empire, when Darth

Alcoholic roomie
I don't drink, but I don't care if others do, either.
....Unless it's with MY MONEY.
This conversation just happened.
Roomie: ....so the gift certificate covered $28 of the bill, but I drank and ate $31.
Me: So you only spent $2, hey, that's pretty good!
Roomie:  Um, no; the gift certificate covered $28, then I *spent* $31 above that.
Me: *shocked into silence, unable to even be angry.*

Me: (to myself) At this rate, we won't last the year before the money runs out.

....And for a little while, he felt hope and joy.
The traveler had walked alone for many years.  It was his way.  From time to time, he would be in the company of others, but never truly one of them. Even when they accepted him and called him one of their own, he didn’t feel it inside.  Not through any failure on their part, but simply because that’s who he was.  How he was wired.  How he was made.
And then he saw a treatment of the old story of Ebenezer Scrooge, only this time it was different.  This time instead of scaring him and terrifying the old man, the ghosts simply changed his history and showed him how things would be if he had taken a better man from the start.  And old Ebenezer was touched and heartened by what he saw, and accepted this better path after an inspiring speech about human nature and choice.
And then the traveler moved on, and saw the grave some some superhero artist or other.  He didn’t recognize the name, but he did recognize the amazing art.  Like sculpture, but breathtakingly real, breath

Terra II part 87
Donna led the others into the Doctor’s blue box.  Some of them--notably Redwing and Mirage--were hesitant, whereas Terra and Changeling were right behind her.
But all of them were stunned into silence once they got inside.
The box was bigger inside than out.  There was a whole room inside, pristine white with roundels set into the walls.  A hexagonal machine sat in the center.  A cute brunette girl in a dark jacket leaned against one of the walls.  There was an open door in the far wall, and through a hallway winding yet deeper.
Donna looked around, awed.  “The Justice Society mentioned that it was larger on the inside, but...”
The Doctor nodded.  “Only their Green Lantern saw the inside.”
“Oi, Professor!” said the girl.  “What’s with all these people?”
“This is Ace,” the Doctor said, gesturing to her.  I believe Miss Levine could compare notes with her concerning explosives.”
Redwing brightened.  “I

The Man who didn't know How To Be a Father
Once upon a time there was a man who didn’t know how to be a father.
In his defense, it should be pointed out that this lack of knowledge was not really his fault.  His own father was a drunken abuser of him, his two sisters, and his mother; after several years of torment, the mother fled from that man, taking the children with her.  After that, he was subjected to a series of boyfriends and step fathers, none of whom did anything to be responsible father figures.
So he grew into a man without this knowledge.  He was a cowardly man, prone to talking a good game--and having the mind to back it up--but no courage and no convictions.  He took a government job, and became a backroom button-pusher, a data man, a programmer.  Good at figures, but not much else.
Despite this, he eventually found a woman whom he could whine and plead into being his wife.  They married, and had one son.  When his own son was about four years old, his wife caught him chea

Terra II part 86
Things were relatively peaceful through Christmas and into New Years Eve.  On the 28th, there was a poor soul who's latent powers manifested on the spot.  Redwing quietly brought him in, and  they sent him to the New York team, who in turn sent him on to the Justice League.  They didn't trust Checkmate with any new metahuman, of course.
The Justice League. They all knew the stories, of course, from their pre-Chaos history.  They still wondered about it sometimes.
Tara wasn't wondering about it now, though.  Right at the moment Gar was snuggled in her arms, asleep.  Despite Donna's best intentions, the New Years' Eve celebrations had indeed gotten somewhat rowdy.  Nothing like what Metallik would have done, of course; but Tara was quietly pleased.  
She could barely see him in the dark room, but she stroked his face tenderly, smiling.  He shifted and muttered in his sleep.  It w

Christmas Help?

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 29, 2015, 4:33 PM


So I make the mistake of asking my smartarse dad what he wants for Christmas and he says  “check around among the deviantart crowd and/or elsewhere, and find a few websites (NOT amazon) where you can download low-cost or freemp3s (they would obviously have to have a HUGE selection, or would be no use to me). please trouble to actually TEST these sites by downloading a song you might like, and when you’re sure they work well then you can send them to me in an email.“ 

So does anybody know any sites like that?
