I said in a comment and I'll say it here: LJ-CUT. Seriously. Drabbles. Journal posting. Long fic. Meta. Whatever. If it's more than 10 lines --- yes that's arbitrary and yes I do violate it sometimes---it needs to go behind a cut. Seriously. I may be missing a lot of great fic, and brilliant meta and I may even have failed to offer a hug when someone desperately needed it, but if I see GIANT WALL OF TEXT without a cut...I will scroll right by. My eyes are shot and I'm old and cranky. If there's a cut and and warning, I'm 100% more likely to take a look or at least print it out in big type for later reading than if it's just sitting there assaulting my cocoa-brown orbs.
LJ-Cut is your friend. Learn it. Know it. Use it.
ETA-OK, maybe ten lines is a little Draconian, but like I said...crankypants. More than 20...really time to start thinking cut. But ALL fic, even drabbles...CUT!
Really? A GIF of the Towers coming down? On Tumblr? I get that Tumblr is the ultimate game of internet roulette and the price I pay for a slew of puppies and and awesome amounts of Squeeeeful Torchwood love is random ugly porn, bad manips, and out and out stupidity, but a GIF of the Towers coming down?
I don't fetishize 9/11. I don't think it's the WORST THING THAT'S EVER HAPPENED. I don't even think it's the worst thing that's ever happened to the United States. I'm mostly isolated from the news right now because I don't want to hear pundits (on the left or the right) pontificating about what it all means ten years later. I can certainly look at the images without crying or flinching or wanting to start an international incident. However, I still feel like putting a GIF on Tumblr crosses some kind of line.
Is that hard for a hotel rep to reply to email requesting a direct for one of my recruits with a simple : Direct bill confirmed? Do I really have to spend my day calling the hotels and speaking to front desk to make sure it's confirmed so that some kid in from Harvard or NYU or U-Mich, doesn't get asked to pay for their own hotel room, when they're expecting it to be direct billed? (And then call me screaming about it.)
John Barrowman is gay.
Hugh Laurie is British.
Are there actually still people walking around the face of the earth who don't know these facts?
