I’ve always wanted to make a wallpaper featuring Osiris from Stargate SG-1 but somehow never got around to it… until now 🙂
I’ve finally finished reading the 8 book series Stargate Atlantis: Legacy, chronicling the events taking place after the series finale “Enemy At The Gate”. The eight books are just as good as everyone has been saying they are! In many ways I think they surpass the tv series itself, going in depth into issues that interest me such as Teyla’s Wraith inheritance and the Wraith society and the retrovirus and what it means to be Wraith. I also loved that Ronon got to do stuff he never got to do on the series and be more than just the muscle. I’ve never been fan of Sheppard or McKay, so I was happy to find that other characters get a lot screentime as well, such as Zelenka, more so than in the series IMHO.
Also read The Lost Queen, by one of the authors of Legacy and takes place in that same universe, which was all about the mystery of a disappeared Wraith Queen and even though Sheppard etc. are there too, it was all from the point of view of the Wraith.
A word of caution – I suggest getting all the books before starting, and definitely read them in order – most of them end in a middle of a story, and you’ll be left hanging if you don’t have the next one ready to go! Indeed, I thought that first five or so books would’ve worked even better as a one book instead of five.
These are probably the best tv tie-ins I’ve read since the Star Trek novels published in 1970s through mid-1990s, and I enjoyed them very much. I’ll definitely be checking out these authors’ other Stargate books as well!
It’s been a miserable summer since May. It’s been hot nearly all the time – both “hot-for-me” and legitimately hot, and it just seems to be getting worse and worse. Yesterday was 32 (Celcius), today it’s promised to be 33 with no cloud. I just barely made it through yesterday, today stretches long and torturous in front of me. It’ll feel like dying.
I can’t even think of tomorrow yet.
It’s promised to stay well above 25 for the next 10 days, but hopefully that gets adjusted downwards to something more normal as the days go by.
My migraine is bad and getting worse, and also I’m feeling just bad overall due the bright sun and the constant heat. I’ve reached the limit of my ability to stand the heat for this year, and now it’s taking all I have to just exist. I don’t know that I’m able to work much on my sites or anything online until the heat is over. So this is your Hiatus warning. It things go well, I’ll be back to normal later this month but it may just as well be end of August or early September before I have energy for anything beyond surviving. Totally depends on the weather now.
I’m writing this at 5.30AM and it feels weird. I’m not a morning person (at all!) but these days mornings are the only time of day I can breathe and feel normal for a couple of hours. That’s when I have to do all the household work and grocery shopping and such right now.
Hey Finnish Summer, I’m ready for you to go back to normal! Cold and gray, rain and all!
I’ve added 11 textures which can also be used as digital paper.

I’m finally done re-uploading and re-posting everything. It was a huge undertaking and took me over 40 hours of work to get everything up again, spread over several days. I’m sorry it took so long!
While going through things and re-organizing, I even found two wallpapers that I apparently had uploaded to my deviantart but never to here, or at least they weren’t among my files here. Not sure what happened there. I made them in 2011, and I’m pretty sure I made both of them for a landcomm challenge on Livejournal if I remember correctly
I wanted to re-organize the backend, and the only way to do it cleanly without deleting images I shouldn’t and leaving images I didn’t actually need was a clean restart. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while now…
Marta, my co-web at my Rachel Weisz fansite has adopted the site 😀 It’s propably the most complete RW site currently online and I’d have hated to shut it down after all the work gone into it but I also didn’t want to have it anymore. Marta’s been staff there for about 5 years now and she’s done an awesome job, much more than I have for several years now. I’m very happy to turn the site over to her completely 🙂
I’m still on a little bit of on the fence with The Vampire Diaries fansite – I’m not really into the last couple of seasons, season 8 is rather boring but on the other hand there’s only I think 6 episodes left and then the entire series is over, and I still really want to cap season 2 and maybe also re-cap season 3 from Bluray. So I figure I’ll keep it for now. Otherwise I think I’ve reached an acceptable balance – I just couldn’t bring myself to shut down ALL my fansites/screencaps sites or even to adopt them out because they are just too dear to me. But I shut down/adopted out most of them, and it will free up so much of my time that it should help whole lot. For now. That’s not to say it won’t happen in the (near) future, because I really kind of want to shut them all down but for now, there are few that I can’t.
My Sites page has a current listing of all my sites, social media, deviantart etc. accounts.
My Sites page is current as of today. Also switched it to plugin that makes it look pretty with thumbnails of the sites 🙂
Turned out flaunt.su was interested in the sites I had marked for deletion, so these sites are now owned by flaunt.nu and are up for adoption:
I don’t have anything to do with the sites above anymore, so all questions, requests and adoption applications should be directed to them.
