I've also made a few vids, which can be found here. Fandoms are: Die Hard, Lewis.
I also do all sorts of graphical things, but they are mostly non-fannish. Apart from a few portraits of actors, the only fannish thing is my Pirates of the Carribbean comic.
In non-fannish terms, I'm a science and computer geek. Although, now that I've joinded the AO3 volunteer coders, I'm also a fannish computer geek. :)

Fanart that looks drawn by a five year old contest (or on DW).
Off to search for my crayons...

One of the reasons I'm not buying DRM-protected stuff. You're never really owning what you're buying, but merely renting it for an indetermined amount of time (unless you de-DRM your stuff), while the prices are the same as for actual print books. It doesn't even have to be such an unfair treatment as in the case of the article, but what about when the company you bought from loses interest in that technology (maybe because there's something new and shinier), or simply ceases to exist?
ETA: An interesting guess as to why the account has been shut down, an interesting critique, and finally a happy ending: http://blogs.computerworlduk.com/si

OMG, you are writing in one of my tiny fandoms! For me! I love you already! Please, please, please: have fun with your assignment! I don't expect you to read my mind, and I don't want you to write something you feel unenthusiastic or even uncomfortable about. Really, every fic in my teeny tiny fandoms is a win! Yuletide is for fun and the collective squee, and I'm already overjoyed that you like one of my fandoms enough to offer to write for it! (So many exclamation points. Can you tell I'm excited?)
I don't have any triggers and I am very hard to squick, but I'd rather the fic does not contain (m)preg, death of canon characters, non-con involving canon characters, or overly kinky sex. (Unless it's a canon event. Everything that's canon is fair game!) Other than that, go wild!
Okay, so if you've already got an idea for your fic, that's great! Stop reading this letter, forget about my request details and go write; I can't wait to see what you come up with! :D In case you do want some inspiration, though, here's what I have to say about my fandoms:( RubyQuestCollapse ) ( AlbionCollapse ) ( Dave BrandstetterCollapse ) ( Literary RPF: Hugo von HofmannsthalCollapse ) ( General Likes/DisklikesCollapse ) This entry was originally posted at http://rebecca2525.dreamwidth.org/7635.h

RubyQuest is a point-and-click sort of game that someone played with a 4chan board. They posted simple stick figure graphics and basic descriptions, and the board members could then make suggestions what the protagonist, Ruby, should do. The game is long since finished, but it makes for a very interesting read, especially the flash version someone made of the graphics and the most interesting discussions among the players.
The story itself is a very creepy and twisted horror trip. Ruby wakes up in a weird research facility without memories and tries to find her way out, meeting strange creatures on her way and getting glimpses into a bleak past.
Another image, warning for bloody creepyness.
The whole thing is also funny the way classical point-and-click adventures are when the "players" struggle to find a solution or try to get Ruby to do funny stuff, or have meta discussions about the game. I don't play much anymore these days, but reading RubyQuest reminded me how video games have their very own atmosphere.
The reason I'm telling you this is that I'm going to request RubyQuest for Yuletide. I think there's lots of room for fic, for example exploring the background (the research facility, what happened before the events of RubyQuest, the other characters), and/or playing with the style of having the player interactions along with the story itself.

Some brilliant fellow Cabin Pressure fans had the idea of creating a coordinated fanmail project involving a lemon, since The Travelling Lemon is one of the many games our favourite pilots like to play. So I took the lemon on a trip through north-west Germany.

I wrote two fics, one Lewis fic and one Glennkill fic.

Overall, it was a great Yuletide. ♥

As for the translation interface, I've sanitised all the input, meaning that now users are prevented from putting bad data into forms. It's boring work as it's clear what it's supposed to do and how it's going to work, and it's not necessary for the general functionality, but it went smoothly.
I also fixed and cleaned up a few things. Somehow I had totally missed the excistence of button_to so far...

Somehow I was expecting more to come out of a mostly free sunday spent coding.
