I had a great horse spray recipe years ago when I had horses. Now I am all about protecting from ticks, because of the cold winter we had they are starting early and are just horrible.

Mint oil is supposedly good against ticks. Poor Moss, I took him on a hike and wanted to keep the ticks so I sprayed him with cider vinegar and tea tree oil and peppermint oil...boy did he stink

Ziggy, did you know they used to wind elderberry leaves through horses headstalls to keep flues and midges away? I cannot recall now what we used when I used to ride - I should ask my aunt

I don't really want to use anything filled with chemicals. We don't get mossies here as such, so it's never been a problem but tics might be if we walk on heathland

Spiced- If you find a really effective fly repellent PLEASE let me know- my poor horse is just plagued by midges. There are thousands every night and they bite my head too. Yuk. Week- update to MoTD!

Congratulations on the new home, Quantumphysica! I hope the communication resolves itself soon.

Wow, is there a problem with the shoutbox? I have written three or four entries this morning together with the one I can now see, but the rest is missing.

Siân, the commercial sprays and lotions formulated to repel mosquitoes and biting flies from your skin and clothing are also effective against ticks.

It is the mark of a good fairy-story, of the higher or more complete kind, that however wild its events, however fantastic or terrible the adventures, it can give to child or man that hears it, when the “turn” comes, a catch of the breath, a beat and lifting of the heart, near to (or indeed accompanied by) tears, as keen as that given by any form of literary art, and having a peculiar quality.
J.R.R. Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories

Welcome to Faerie, an archive for Tolkien fanfiction. We welcome all sorts of stories, poetry and non-fiction writing, regardless of genre, rating or pairing.

e-books tree taking fanfic

(From Ef Yeah Copyright Law on Tumblr)

'We’ve been getting pings and @’s all morning about E-books
who seem to be scraping/taking stories off of AO3 and hosting them as PDFs and mobi downloads on their site; the site seems to be pulling from UrBookLibrary as well. They’re not reading your “do not copy/duplicate” notes on your AO3 fic; their bots are pulling things directly from AO3, without AO3r42;s authorization or assent. It looks like they are pulling from Wattpad too, again without authorization or assent.

While the Ebooks-Tree DMCA page seems to imply that you need a lawyer or other “authorized person” to submit a takedown notice, you don’t; you can do it yourself.

As we’ve posted before, fanfic writers hold copyright in their stories, although not in lines/quotes from the works they’ve been inspired by, and because of that, fanfic writers can submit DMCA takedown notices, or have someone do it on their behalf. While this post isn’t legal advice (none of our posts on FYC are), you might want to consider using this template (well, the bolded bits) in telling ebooks-tree to take down your content:'

Back To Middle-earth Month

It is March so that means it is Back To Middle-earth month.

At Back to Middle-earth Month 2015: Tharbad’s Greenway Spring Faire (the Middle-earth Marketplace for all you need), writers, artists, and other creators of fanworks are invited to challenge each other to create fanworks during the month of March! Because this is a spring faire, you will spend and earn farthings as you participate throughout the month by posting challenge prompts, claiming challenge prompts, and leaving reviews for other participants.

Read more about it here.

Fandom Snowflake Challenge 2015

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge: 2015.

Every day for the first 15 days of January, we're going to post a fannish challenge. It could be something as simple as reccing fanworks to talking about what you love about fandom. Follow the instructions to complete the challenge. Sometimes you'll be asked to post to your own journal and drop a link in the challenge post. Sometimes you'll just need to say "I did it!" in the comments of the challenge post. Only do the challenges you're comfortable with. No one is keeping track, no one is going to give you grief if you don't complete a particular challenge. The point is to stretch your boundaries, but not at the expense of stressing you out. Fandom is supposed to be fun, and these challenges should be hard but should still be enjoyable.

And even though the challenge is being hosted on Dreamwidth, please feel free to comment anonymously and signing your name if you don't have a DW account, or signing in with OpenID, which let's you use your LJ (and other platform) credentials to comment. We'd love for everyone to participate regardless of what platform you use - DW or LJ or Tumblr or Twitter or dA or Mibba or or archives or mailing lists or old-school BBS.

Part of this challenge is about fandom and the awesome the people in it. The other part of this challenge, just as important, is about getting us to interact with each other. Fandom is what weaves us together, friendship and love and laughter and life. It's the fabric of our lives. Come share it with us.

And share it with others.

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge: 2015.

Tolkien Fanfiction Survey

Hello :) I thought you might be interested to know that Dawn Felagund, who runs the Silmarillion Writers Guild, has a Tolkien Fanfiction Survey which will she will use when she presents a paper to Mythmoot conference in January. Her LJ entry is here. There is a link to the survey here. It only took me a few minutes, and was interesting. Tolkien Fanfiction Survey.
