At least I'm writing again.
Of ice cream and monstrous cars
Read it, don't read it, leave feedback or run away screaming, whatever you feel like *gg* In case you're wondering, with Star Trek insignia I meant the A on the back of Tony's car.
Normally I'm not one for propaganda but this is for a good cause, a great cause even that has stolen the lives and innocence of far too many. Watch this. Have a box of tissues ready. Prepare to be shocked and horrified and heartbroken. It's worth it. It really is.
I've never heard of Joseph Kony, and I bet most of you haven't either. He's a truly evil man who has turned children into soldiers and sex slaves for over twenty years. He's the founder of the the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), operating in Africa, and he has no purpose except to gain power. For the majority of that time, he did so with very little international attention. No one cared. Until now.
People are standing up, speaking up to the injustices, wanting something to be done. The campaign is seeking donations, but more than that it's after attention. I say give it to them. The more people that know the better.
Even if you can't donation, at least spread the word. It doesn't matter who you are or where you live. Every voice counts in this.
Edit Since I only saw this right after I posted this - please be sure to read this, too.
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.

Summary: Jim goes missing. Bones searches for answers - and finds something he didn't see coming.
A/N: Written for space_wrapped prompt: There is a TOS episode in which Spock and McCoy watch the video of Jim that he made for if he was killed on a mission, and it makes them realize some things, right? So, that, only what McCoy finds is the stash of stuff Jim has bought various people (his mom, his nephews, his bridge crew) for Christmas, with a list of the things he means to get McCoy, except there's a lot of crossing out and fretting over getting McCoy's gift just right, maybe with things like "me, wrapped up in a bow" crossed out (like, with notes to self of he wouldn't want this?). When they get Jim back, McCoy makes it clear actually yes, all he wants is Jim. Title from the lyrics of the Song "My List" by The Killers.
