Hi everybody! I started this tumblr because I wrote a fanfic called "Falling" and fanart for it kind of drew my attention to tumblr, but since then my tumblr has become a place where I squee over a bunch of different fandoms and random things that catch my attention. I love being able to talk to people who actually GET it!

You can read Falling and my other stuff at ff.net or ao3.

I do post a lot of Falling-related stuff here, particularly bits of canon and deleted scenes I couldn't fit into the story, which are all collected on the about page.

I do maintain three other blogs -- leaderinblue (a Falling Leo Roleplay blog, on hiatus), shardsoftangshen (a Tang Shen AU Roleplay blog), and askthehamatofamily, which is a Falling!Gang ask blog (when I have time to answer things).

And please say hi! I'm just a fandom geek who wants to share my geekery with everybody who'll stay still long enough to listen.

Seventeen days.

Aliens was a revelation to me when I was a kid.

As soon as the actual action started, what immediately struck me was that every woman onscreen had her shit absolutely together, and every man (with the exception of Corporal Hicks, Bishop and Apone) was a complete walking clusterfuck.

Moreover, as in this .gifed scene, the narrative itself made it explicit that the only way the men were going to survive was by emulating the women.

And even though I was still just a dipshit kid when I first saw this, I didn’t pull on an MRA fedora and whine about my gender being portrayed in such an unflattering light, because even then, I immediately recognized, “This is what it’s like for women to watch literally every other sci-fi action film.  Well played, movie.”

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN

IF YOU ARE STREAMING, DON’T USE PROCASTER.

DON’T. USE. PROCASTER.

Livestream procaster consumes large amounts of cpu for nothing. No joke, nothing. As a result your stream can become laggy and sometimes it can damage your hardware as your PC has to push itself to keep what your streaming functioning as well as possible.

"But if we can’t use procaster what can we use insteaaaaad?"

Simple. There’s two programs, both that are free, that you can use that uses very little CPU and has more options than procaster. These programs are called Xsplit and OBS. To keep your head in one piece, I’m going to go over how to stream on Livestream with Xsplit.

Under the cut of course.

Save this for later, everyone told me to use Procaster when I asked what to livestream with
