ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

Jul. 4th, 2011

In all honesty, last Saturday was the BEST FUCKING DAY OF MY LIFE.

I got home at 12.30, because there was a fight on the train and the police were called. My parents were pretty mad. But I don't care, because you guys, I've never had such a good day in my life. Ever. I felt accepted, I felt inspired, and I met
Joseph Gordon Fucking Levitt.

Really, what more can a girl ask for?

Writer's Block: Almost like a song

How would you describe your ideal romantic partner in six words?

Standing just out of my reach.

Writer's Block: 10/10/10

What is your opinion on numerology? Do you think number sequences can reveal future events?

I guess I don't really know enough about numerology in general to have an opinion on the matter! I think it would be brilliant if we could use number sequences to determine the future, but I would still be sceptical.

Fic: Morning Lullabies

Title: Morning Lullabies
Fandom: Inception
Pairing: Eames/Arthur
Rating: PG
Summary: Eames wakes one Sunday morning to find Arthur draped across him. (Warning: Complete and utter fluff. I can not be sued for any cavities gained by reading this fic!)
Disclaimer: I am merely playing with Christopher Nolan's toys.
Other Information: Title/Fic inspired by the song "Morning Lullabies" by Ingrid Michaelson, which I just think is an absolutely beautiful song, and one that you should all go listen to NOW!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmlDWR1QGuk

OK, so I realise, this is the first fic I have written in a VERY long time, so please be gentle! Constructive criticism always appreciated :D

EDIT: Now with beautiful artwork by johanirae ! http://johanirae.livejournal.com/360159.html

Fic under the cut!Collapse )


Writer's Block: It's allergies ... really!

What was the last thing that made you cry?

My mother. On Friday. Because I finally decided to cut my long hair to a shorter length, she freaked out and told me I had no originality, that I now "looked like everyone else", and that because of that I would have to be "better at what I do" (play the violin, act, sing) if I was going to get any attention or be recognised.

Writer's Block: Lucky pants

Do you have a lucky or unlucky piece of clothing? If you have a lucky garment, when do you wear it and what sort of luck has it brought you? If you have an unlucky piece of clothing, why do you keep it? Do you ever wear it just to see what happens?

I have lucky red underpants :D
I wear them if I'm doing a competition or an important exam/concert, or even just if I want the day to be good!

Have a competition on saturday. Really looking forward to it, but getting so nervous that I feel slightly dizzy everytime someone mentions it.
I've done the competition before, so it's nothing new to me. I just... well, I want to win this year. Really quite badly. But hey. If I do,I do, if I don't, I don't.
Love you all xxx
