Pleas for condemned Saudi 'witch'

Basically, this woman has been sentenced to death for supposedly "using witchcraft to make a man impotent." She was also beaten and forced to fingerprint a confession she couldn't read. And that's just the icing on the cake. No words can describe my disgust.

Here is the letter from the HRW.

The Kite Runner is rated PG-13 for sex, violence, sexual assault of a child, language, and prejudice.

I'm Not There is rated R for language, some sexuality and nudity.

...I'm speechless.

Since I'm thinking seriously about a site domain now (honest and truly), I'm compiling a list of domain names. These are all available in .com, by the way.

Poll #1114342 Domain name poll

What domain should Marie get?

None of them

Marie, you silly person. None of those are any good. I have a better one.

Dear fandom (more specifically the G.U. fandom),

What is it with you guys and colors? Enough with the strange color similes, more specifically 'honey brown.' I know you want to try to keep from having to repeat a character's name over and over again, but you don't need to come up with weird similes just to help your reader distinguish characters.

For example: One fic describes Ovan as "cornflower haired." In fact, they use it more than twice in one chapter. *whips guilty author(s) in the palm with a ruler* QUIT THAT. Once is enough. It would probably be more preferable to never use it. "Blue-haired"? Okay, sure. Again, don't overuse it. But "cornflower haired"? Knowing a rarer name of an existing color does not a smart fic make. Even worse is if you use the same type of comparison for every other character in every other sentence.

And for DOYC's sake, EDIT YOUR FIC. Read it backwards. Ask a friend who knows grammar and spelling to beta it for you. Just correct any mistakes you have before you publish it! I can count the number of fanfic that didn't have this problem with my fingers. That. Is. Just. Sad.

A friendly reminder from someone who cares,
Marie (CCMars)

I'm going to change my LJ layout again. I just haven't been satisfied with it, plus the sidebar and header are a little off in IE. I liked how the graphic came out, but that's about it.
