I saw Cirque du Soleil Ovo last night and got inspired for a little Canarywave. (Images are not mine.)



Canarywave Aerial AU

Sara Lance and Mick Rory were partners in every sense of the word. With the amount of trust they needed for their aerial act, they had to know each other better than they knew themselves. And they did. They loved and supported each other through every performance and they physically supported each other using only ropes, a hoop, or a bar and their own strength.

I now have 36 DVDs (movies and TV shows), books, and some random objects listed on eBay, all using my own photos. I did the DVDs as Buy it Now/Best Offer with free shipping but the books do not include shipping. Check them out.

This is my first time selling stuff on eBay, so if you have any tips after looking over the listings, I'm open to suggestions.

Whatever doesn't sell will get donated to More Than Words (a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business).

Last night I also boxed up almost 80 CDs to get shipped to SecondSpin.com and just need to find a box to send another 22 CDs to Decluttr.

And yes, I did drop off my 10 bags of clothes, shoes, and purses at Sister Thrift yesterday.

I'm making some very nice progress with my purging.

Fingers crossed that the eBay stuff actually sells.

While in the middle of searching Pinterest, my internet crapped out. Couldn't do anything on my computer or via WiFi. I ran AVG and while it fixed a bunch of registry issues, it didn't help. I rebooted the computer, didn't help. I unplugged the modem twice for over five minutes, and it didn't help. I tried switching the dsl cable to a different port on the modem, didn't help. Can't access WiFi on my iPad or iPhone either.

I don't know what else to do!

If the WiFi isn't working but the cable TV is, the problem is probably my modem, not the router, right? Do I have to get a new modem? This one is 5-10 years old. (I'd check LJ because I would have posted when it happened, but that will be too frustrating to do on my phone. I can check from work tomorrow.)

Start from the beginning

Chapter Three: The Main Event

After Leonard had set the table, including the salad, checked on dinner in the oven, and that the ice cream was still in the freezer, he reluctantly left to go change into whatever Kendra had picked out for him, leaving Mick to watch over the galley.

Upon entering his room, Leonard spotted the black suit jacket and black dress shirt lying on his bed, along with a note.

How'd I do?

- Kendra

Leonard stripped out of his jacket and sweater and slipped into the dress shirt, which fit him perfectly. He quickly tucked it into the black pants he'd been wearing as Kendra had thankfully not provided him with dress pants. He was willing to wear the dress shirt and jacket, but wearing a full suit would feel too much like running a con, and he didn't want that with Sara.

Looking at himself in the mirror, Leonard could admit that he looked good in the form fitting shirt. While he may not show it off, he did have a good physique, if he did say so himself.

Finally he pulled on the black suit jacket and couldn't resist smirking. Maybe Kendra had been right in insisting that he dress for this dinner with Sara. Not that he'd tell her that.

Realizing that he hadn't said what time dinner would be, Leonard stopped by Sara's room to see if she was ready now. Her door was closed, but when he knocked she called out, "Come in."

Sara was in her bathroom, just finishing applying her lipstick.

Her face lit up upon seeing Leonard standing in her room. "Hey!" she said in greeting. She boldly ran her eyes over him, unconsciously licking her newly painted lips. "Don't you clean up nice?"

"You look beautiful," Leonard said sincerely, his eyes raking over her.

"Thank you," Sara said. "Is it time?"

Start from the beginning

Chapter Two: Preparations

"You do realize that I can make the entire meal and not just the ingredients," Gideon said as Leonard removed a third type of cheese from the food replicator in the galley.

"Yes, I do," Leonard said, "but that would defeat the purpose of me cooking dinner. We have an oven; I may as well make use of it."

"As you wish," Gideon responded, sounding almost disappointed.

"Tell ya what," Leonard said, leaning back against the counter and looking towards the ceiling, "I'll make the main course, but you can make a mixed salad, enough for two people."

"And for dessert?" Gideon prompted.

Leonard smirked. "Go ahead and make Sara's favorite."

"Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream it is," Gideon announced.

"Oh, and Gideon," Leonard added. "Don't tell Sara what we're making."

"She will not hear it from me," Gideon said.

Collecting the ingredients, Leonard set about putting together one of the few dishes he was confident making.

After the team split up, Sara went to her quarters with a six pack of beer. It felt appropriate, given Mick's betrayal of the team and seeing Leonard alive. (She couldn't even think about that right now.)

But was it really a betrayal?

Mick and Ray were right. They hadn't trusted him. Not like they had before Leonard died. If they ever really had.

Sara knew the team put Mick down and she'd done nothing to stop it. Neither had Rip.

She could admit to herself that she was guilty of doing it, too, since becoming captain.

She'd told herself that she had distanced herself from the tentative friendship she'd had with Mick when Leonard was alive because she was Captain now. She needed to keep her distance from all of her teammates if she was to lead them with a clear head.

She couldn't let herself get attached. Not again.

Chapter One: Observations & Revelations

Leonard Snart considered himself to be an observant man, especially in new situations.

Being on board the Waverider with a group of strangers twenty-four hours a day wasn't exactly a new situation - he'd been in and out of enough jails and prisons in his life that being enclosed with strangers wasn't entirely new - but the general lack of hostility with these strangers was unusual. So he observed them.

One of the things that he'd observed was that Sara Lance liked to train. A lot. She'd been some kind of assassin, apparently, which intrigued him all the more. One didn't generally associate gorgeous blondes with lethal assassination. Yet, that was exactly what Sara was.

Not that he could blame her for spending so much time training. There wasn't a whole lot else to do on this ship.

Sometimes Leonard would offer to spar with Sara, to avoid his own boredom. She always readily agreed, despite the fact that she held back when sparring with him. Leonard tried not to be insulted when he realized what she was doing, but at the same time, he was grateful not to be on the receiving end of her full strength. He knew that she could kill him with little effort; which turned him on much more than it should.

Amongst his observations of Sara, he noticed that when she was training she often forgot to eat.

I can't believe that Buffy premiered on this date 20 years ago.

Granted, I didn't start watching for another five years, but I still feel obligated to celebrate this anniversary. After all, the show brought me to the fandom, and I can't imagine what my life would be like without this fandom. I started writing fanfiction for this show, which lead me to Yahoo Groups and then LiveJournal, where I became fast friends with my fellow BtVS writers and readers. Today, most of my RL friendships exist because of BtVS.

My life would be very different if Buffy the Vampire Slayer had never aired on television. Much more boring, I'm sure. Especially since I wouldn't know any of you. ::hugs::

It wasn't right, these thoughts and feelings he was having. On so many different levels.

It was far too soon after Miranda and Jonas's murders for him to be developing...feelings...for someone else. Never mind the fact that the new object of his affections was his ship's AI.

Time Masters weren't supposed to have feelings for anyone. Was he defective for having fallen first for Miranda and then Jonah, and now for Gideon? Or did his ability and desire to love make him better than his former bosses?

He had loved Miranda deeply. He had been willing to give up his lifelong dream of being a Time Master for her; if only she hadn't beaten him to it.

If only Miranda had known that he would become much closer to someone else during the time that he was away from her.

Gideon was his constant companion. Other people may have joined him on board the ship, but Gideon was his constant.

It felt like waking from a bad dream, which Rip supposed was the truth.

Not that it was all bad.

After all, he'd still had Gideon with him. His one true friend since he became a Time Master and was given the Waverider.

Not only did he have Gideon with him, but she was there in human form. It had felt completely natural that she would be there as a person and not just a disembodied voice. They knew each other so well, that it had often been hard to remember that she did not have a physical human body.

Only in his mind, she did.

In his mind, Gideon was a beautiful woman with long dark hair. While she had a resemblance to Miranda, she was uniquely her own.

She was his own.

The battle raged throughout the dockyard. Firestorm and Atom were firing on goons from the sky while Leonard, Mick, and Rip attacked with guns and Sara, Amaya, and Nate fought with hand-to-hand combat.

"Where's Darhk?" Sara shouted after having knocked out her latest opponent. She looked around to see Leonard shooting ice at a cluster of men and Mick wasn't far away lighting up some other men with fire. But neither was fighting Darhk. "I don't see him."

"The speedster got him away as soon as the gunfire started," Ray reported over the din of fight.

Sara took her rage out on having lost out on the chance to kill Darhk, again, on the first goon foolish enough to come at her.

She was so consumed by her own fight that she didn't hear the warning signs until the explosion happened.

"Mick," Leonard's voice cried out, finishing off his opponents.

Sara's head jerked up as one of her lovers cried the other's name with an anguished voice. She dropped her opponent and followed Leonard to where she could now see Mick lying on the ground.

"No!" she cried, running towards the fire that was creeping closer to her lovers. "Is he...?" She couldn't say it.

"Alive," Leonard quickly assured her, his voice thick with emotion - that he would later claim was from the smoke. "Just unconscious."
