Long Post of Linkiness

It's been a good week for cool stuff but I realized that I had stuff in email, chat, and tumblr that wasn't making its way here so have some linkspam:

Click here to see my Tumblr main page and scroll through this first batch or use the following individual links:

Great Quote:
After Alfred's literary hero, Jeeves, the most famous butler in fiction is probably Stevens in Remains of the Day. Alfred remembered fondly that book's account of an unflappable butler serving in India, who interrupts his master's tea to report a rabid tiger has entered the house and rests beneath the dining room table. The butler calmly asks permission to use a particular weapon, after which the guests hear three gunshots. The butler returns to refresh the teapot and reports "Dinner will be served at the usual time, milord, and I am pleased to say there will be no discernable traces of the recent occurrence by that time."

Perhaps it was the gift for dignified understatement that put Alfred more in mind of Stevens than Jeeves at this particular moment. Or perhaps it was that Stevens' duties brought him into contact with Nazis and Nazi collaborators, while the worst Jeeves had to contend with were chaps called Tuppy Glossop and Gussie Finknottle.

"There is a matter in the library requiring your attention, sir," Alfred announced soberly. Bruce turned from his place where Signora Rinaldi was measuring counter space for a demonstration on olive pressing, and Alfred continued. "Your immediate attention, sir."

Assuming this was yet another of the endless preparations for the festival, Bruce entered the library with a distracted air, totally unprepared for the sight that would greet him. The transition to Batman was instantaneous as his brain registered it - the Joker! - sitting in an easy chair - feet up on an endtable - balancing a leather-bound volume of Emily Dickenson poems on his chin.

A Moment of WTF: Found this in a summary at FF.Net: "I need OC's for my fanfic Family Means Everything, I will only except 10 characters related to the Marvel characters so get your character in fast."

Rage inducing look at the DC Reboot's redesign of Starfire and what they're saying to women.

When the Lights Come On Again
by seanchai& elspethdixon Thanks so much jojo_kun  for helping me find this!

Summary: Aliens have invaded earth, and the Avengers are scattered. While Steve leads the resistance, Tony once again finds himself playing captive scientist. In the midst of a violent alien regime, separated by seemingly insurmountable boundaries, Steve and Tony have nothing to keep themselves going but each other.

Steve and Tony are separated for most of this but there's a nice fluffy pay off at the end. Really great characterizations and a gripping story. Better than a lot of canon stuff.

In addition to helping me find stories Jojo has been busy doing Steve/Tony art. Yum!

This is the final final edit I hope. I've been trying to get this posted with all links and formatting working for 2 hours.  Tip: Don't use the automatic crosspost feature at Dreamwidth anymore  if you mirror there. Since the last LJ update the HTML will not survive the trip without a gltich.
