Discussion: resources. What are your favourite resources for writing? (this can be anything - software, assistive tech, recurring challenges and exchanges, comms etc) also if you think it would be useful to have, I can make a sticky with resources and try to keep it up to date especially the comms side of it.
 
 
Fandom: Arrowverse (all of it)
Characters/Pairings: All of them. Pairings are all canon.
Rating & Warnings: Unknown at this time, unlikely to be NC-17 but very likely to be R.
Estimated Fic Length: Unknown at this time; chapter one is complete and almost 4,500 words.
Beta type: Looking for grammar, spelling, style, sentence structure, does it make sense.
Harshness: I'm not looking for someone to say "OMGs this is so awesome there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with it!" but I want criticism to be constructive. I want to know what's wrong with it so I can fix it. I may not take all suggestions, but I definitely want to hear them.
Notes: This is an ongoing, multi-part, multi-chapter project so a long-term beta who is dedicated to the work is required. Someone who has seen all of the current episodes of the four major DCTV shows (Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash). Someone who is pissed off about certain aspects of how The Flash season 3 storyline was handled and would like to see it all rectified. >.> This fic is not for any kind of challenge or fest, it's a labor of love (but also burning need to set things right).

Discussion: titles. Do you find titles easy or difficult to come up with?
 
 
FANDOM: The Thick of It
FIC LINK: Uncertain Sideways Streets
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] grenadine
RATING/WARNING(S): T | liberal use of the letter f; spoilers for Spinners and Losers and the beginning of Season 4
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 6,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Nicola Murray, Malcolm Tucker, (Ollie Reeder, Glen Cullen, Julius Nicholson)

FIC SUMMARY: During the election, Nicola Murray hits a wall.

RECCER'S NOTES: Politics fic! Nicola gets a rare chance to shine here, because for all her many (many, many many) flaws, she was one of the few ideologically honest people in DoSAC. And her voice is brilliant, and the dialogue is brilliant, and the characterisation is brilliant, and of all the fics I want to write on my skin until they can be absorbed as a permanent part of my system, this one's damn well near the top of the list.

And when you're done with that, head to Close Your Eyes and Think of Agincourt, by the same author and set prior to Uncertain.

I seem to have got mixed up and thought that this week was covered. Oops. I'll be around the rest of the week. How is the writing going today? What about the last three days?

After over a month of connection difficulty at work (thirty miles from where I live) but not at home, I thought the problem had finally resolved itself, and right on time for the Fire and Ice event!

Unfortunately, my issue began again earlier this afternoon (er, yesterday afternoon), and this time where I live rather than where I work. I lost my connection, was unable to log in after restarting the app and twice restarting my phone, and the app is now "unable to authenticate" my account since, in a fit of desperation, I decided to try re-entering my login information.

A quick Google search (which I should probably have tried ages ago) reveals that this is apparently a common problem for people logging in with their Pokemon Trainer Club account, of which I am one.

If anyone knows of a way to fix this, I'd love to hear it; I really don't want to just start a new game with a fresh account, but I also don't want to drive half an hour on the off-chance that being in the city where I work helps.

Edit: Force-closing the app also didn't help.

Edit 2: The fantabulous [personal profile] catness has provided a working fix! I will note that I had to do a bit of extra searching to find an old version of Pokemon Go to install, and fiddle with my phone's settings to allow it to boot, but it did indeed work.

I will also note that some searching tells me that the PTC login issue is only a problem on Android phones; iPhones seem to have no problem logging in with either account type.
