sweetpeach bday2

Hope you are having a lovely day!


Lord have mercy...


While I was searching the web for photos of Robert Clohessy (Oz's Sean Murphy), I discovered that his real-life son, Myles, is a high-end sports & fitness model, repped by the famous Wilhelmina modeling and talent agency. And I thought this discovery was too amazing not to be shared! So I am posting a few more of Myles' porniest hottest pics under the cut.

... and you're utterly useless the rest of the day.

It's a long story, but the end result here is what's really important. :-)

(It was completely unsolicited, I'd like to add, because honestly I'm still a little weirded out by the idea of interacting with celebs via social media. Anne had simply tagged/addressed him at one point in our conversation.)


LJ comment

In a week full of immenient gloom and doom, I'd like to thank "Evans John" for giving me the laugh of a lifetime. I cannot wait to work the phrase "super driver on top" into the next bit of porn I write.

Very helpful! Sounds like Trump wrote this.



I'm so excited for oz_magi! The quality of work in this fandom is just amazing, for both stories and art, especially considering how small we are. I hope this fest helps keep this fandom going for many more years to come!

On a (slightly amusing) related note... I think probably like everyone, I try to guess at who wrote what before the reveals, and I'm always terrible at it. Even if I've read every bit of Oz fic that a participant has written, I usually still have problems identifying that author. On the other hand, I'm usually pretty good at identifying who made what wish. I think the fandom is small enough so that I've kind of been able to zero in on who has what particular area/character/pairing/trope of interest.

This year, so far, I've gotten every wisher wrong. Every. Single. One. (Except for myself, of course.)

I guess I don't know y'all as well as I thought. Ha!

ALSO, I don't usually share personal stuff, but... say hello to the newest member of my family! :-)


We've named him Indy (as in Indiana Jones), which replaces his rather unimaginative birth name of B-1 (short for Black Cat Number 1, given to him to distinguish him from his litter-mates). He's 18 months old, and he's adorable. He still has a lot of playful kitten in him, even though he is BIG. He barely fits in my lap. And, boy, is he heavy, even if he doesn't look it at first (must be the slimming effect of all that black fur).

Our most recent cat died nearly 3 years ago, just a couple of months shy of his 20th birthday, which was a very traumatic experience for everyone involved, even though he'd obviously led a full life. And I've been very resistant to getting another cat because of FEELS, but I was talked into it, and I'm glad I was. Indy's a total sweetheart.

OZ Advent, Day 23: My Favorite Oz Moment

Something a little different for today's pentultimate advent post: a bit of meta discussing my absolute favorite moment in all of Oz.

Perhaps surprisingly, it has nothing to do with Beecher/Keller. It's the moment in the season 2 episode "Animal Farm" when all the different groups of inmates join together to donate money to Rebadow so that his dying grandson can go to Disney World. Tumblr's ryan-oreily made a wonderful gifset of the sequence of scenes that make up the moment, which can be seen HERE. This is a screencap of it:

oz fave moment

I'm generally a feel-good kind of person (which is kind of ironic, given the nature of this show), and I found it incredibly touching that these hardened criminals could show so much compassion, that they still possessed the basic decency to do something so kind.

However, the first time I watched it, it was also with growing apprehension, because this was Oz. I kept waiting for something horrible to happen, for someone to rob Rebadow, or kill him, or for him to lose the money somehow. And then, sure enough, Wangler proposes to Adebisi that they steal the money, and I thought, "Here we go..."


Adebisi (ADEBISI!! of all people) rejects Wangler's plan, explaining:

And THAT is when I lost it, and it made me realize how incredible this show was and how amazing its characters were. I loved how Fontana showed that someone as despicable as Adebisi could still have a conscience and a sense of humanity. That all the people in Oz, as horrible as they might be, were still people at heart.

This moment has always reminded me, in a roundabout way, of my favorite passage in "A Christmas Carol," when Scrooge's nephew says,
I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round... as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!
I think, given recent political events, it is apparent that a lot of people still need to learn the lesson of this passage. I live in hope that the seasonal atmosphere of Christmas at least gives them pause to consider its message.



A Christmas Miracle Remembered (an AU where I pretend that Toby was paroled at the end of Season 4, and Seasons 5 & 6 never happened)

Chris quickly shut the cabin door behind him, glad to be inside where it was warm. Leaning against the back of the door, he stomped and wiped the snow off his boots and onto the rug. It was second nature to him now—he’d heard more than enough lectures in his lifetime from Toby about tracking dirty slush across the hardwood floor.

He walked over to the fireplace and dumped his armful of logs into the empty bin, save one. He threw that log onto the dying fire and grabbed the poker. Crouching down, he used it to stir the fire until its flames were strong again. He tried to ignore the aches in his knees as he stood back up.

A Christmas Miracle Remembered, continuedCollapse )



(Okay, something had to give yesterday, and it ended up being Day 19's advent posting. Sorry about that!)

U-G-L-Y, You Ain't Got No Alibi

Sean pulled the sweater over his head and looked in the mirror. It was the ugliest thing he'd ever seen in his life.

"Oh, it looks great!" Tim said with a big smile. "All that green really brings out the color of your eyes."

U-G-L-Y, You Ain't Got No Alibi, continuedCollapse )



OZ Advent, Day 17: Crack the Whip

Crack the Whip

"Good grief," grumbled Toby. "Why is it taking you so long to get those skates on?"

Chris shrugged as he slowly swung a stocking-clad foot back and forth, trying to avoid the pool of melting slush under the bench. "These old laces don't look very strong," he observed. "What if one breaks?"

Crack the Whip, continuedCollapse )


OZ Advent, Day 16: Winter Wonderland

OZ Advent, Day 15: Miss Sally's Snowballs

Miss Sally's Snowballs

"We have a very special day planned here at Miss Sally's Schoolyard!" Miss Sally proclaimed enthusiastically. "We're going to go outside for recess and play in the snow!"

The inmates all clapped in anticipation as they watched Miss Sally jump up and down in excitement.

Miss Sally's Snowballs, continuedCollapse )


OZ Advent, Day 14: The Perfect Tree

The Perfect Tree (I'm not really sure where my mind was on this AU)

Toby paced through the lot, his boots making crunching sounds on the packed snow.

"I told you, we should've come here last weekend," he huffed. "These trees are pretty picked over."

The Perfect Tree, continuedCollapse )

OZ Advent, Day 12: Tim's Great Idea

Tim's Great Idea (the timeline is a little wonky on this, so just roll with it)

It was Tim McManus's idea for the staff at Oz to join together to decorate a little tree in the break room. Not only would it be a fun way to celebrate the holidays, but it would also help foster a sense of community among the employees.

(He had heard that the staff at other prisons had done something similar with great success.)
