Transition Info  
Below the cut is LJ to DW transition information: How to import your LJ at DW, and how to set up cross-posting.

DW here we come )

I hope that helps!

In other news, holy crap, I've had my LJ for 12 years. O_O

I just realized I missed posting on Jan 1, so HAPPY NEW YEAR my friends!

In other news, I just learned of this Livejournal moving its servers debacle today, so I decided to go ahead and import my whole journal to Dreamwidth, and I encourage everyone to do so. You'll be able to save everything (posts and comments to those posts) in a few simple steps. If you would like me to write a how-to guide, let me know. I'll be happy to do so.

I haven't been posting much in general, but the major difference for me is that all fic will be posted to AO3 and then the story header info and a link to AO3 will be posted to the journal. Any comments can be left wherever you feel most comfortable (LJ, DW, or AO3).

I'm new to this cross-posting from DW thing, and I keep posting by accident. I'll get the hang of it.

My username is angelita26 over at DW - please feel free to friend me over there. I don't want to lose contact with anyone if LJ disappears one day soon.

Sayonara Teen Wolf  
It was announced at Comic-Con today that Teen Wolf is ending with Season 6. They'll reach 100 episodes with 6x20, the finale.

I'm sad about it because it was my new obsession (Stiles FTW!), but it definitely peaked with season 3B, so I can't be too sad about it. Hopefully there are a few more epic fics yet to be written by the amazing TW fandom.

The international Season 6A trailer is below the cut, if anyone is interested. :) It looks like it'll be a fascinating season. 6A premieres in November.

USA Network Announces WC 6th and Final Season to Air Beginning November 6th  
Highlights from the press release:

USA announced today that its hit original drama series WHITE COLLAR will air its sixth and final season beginning Thursday, November 6 at 9/8c.

"From its inception, WHITE COLLAR captured a massive and loyal following, in large part due to the incredible on-screen chemistry between Matt and Tim, who deserve credit for one of the most brilliantly performed 'bromances' in all of television," said Chris McCumber, President of USA Network. "The series also benefited from smart writing and an extraordinarily talented supporting cast, who helped it become a fan favorite crime drama for five straight years. This season will not disappoint, with an exciting and shocking ending that fans will never forget."

Guest stars for the final bow include Ross McCall, Gavin Lee, Bridget Regan, Toby Leonard Moore, Paloma Guzman, Michael Potts, Isaach de Bankole and Diahann Carroll.

College Student is First Human to Undergo Cancer Treatment Using Disease  
This is fascinating. A 20-year-old college student was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor and went through treatment, but the brain tumor came back. So, doctors at Duke University gave her the option of having a modified form of the polio virus injected into the tumor. She was the first human to undergo the procedure, and it was a success.

James Rebhorn, An Obituary  
Via Entertainment Weekly. Prior to his passing last Friday, James Rebhorn wrote his own obituary. It's both a touching tribute and advice for his family in their grief.

I cannot stress how much this requires a tissue-warning. I'm still weeping over here. R.I.P. Mr. Rebhorn.

OFFICIAL: White Collar Renewed for Six Episode Sixth Season  
Per The Futon Critic, it's official via press release from USA that White Collar has been renewed for a final sixth season for six episodes.

ETA: Changed post title to indicate "sixth season" instead of "final season" as sinfulslasher pointed out that the Hollywood Reporter is saying that USA isn't commenting on whether it's the final season and I re-read the press release and it also doesn't indicate it being the final season. Thanks [ profile] sinfulslasher!

UNOFFICIAL: White Collar to get 6 Episode Final Season  
Per - I'm posting the whole article below because I can't link to their site from LJ. It's currently (as of 3/20 at 10:20pm ET) on their main page.

One of USA Network‘s signature series, drama White Collar, is poised to wrap its run with a six-episode sixth and final season. There is no official word yet, but I hear the network and series producer Fox TV Studios are finalizing the deal. The size of the order looks like a compromise between a movie/mini-series conclusion USA had been considering and a full-length season, sought by producer FfvS. Season 5 ended with a cliffhanger involving the abduction of Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer). All of USA’s other established series — Monk, Burn Notice (also produced by FtvS), Psych and In Plain Sight — also had received a proper send-off. Moved to fall for the first time since its first season, White Collar got dinged up against in-season competition but rebounded in January when the conclusion of Season 5 averaged 2.8 million viewers in Live+Same Day, up 22% from fall, and 955,000 adults 18-49, up 32%.

With ratings still solid, the renewal negotiations zeroed in on the show’s economics. At this point in the run of a series, a network is responsible for the full production cost. With a well-known cast and extensive location shoots in New York, White Collar is an expensive show. What’s more, it is not owned by USA. USA parent NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment has made owning content a priority with the appointments of Jeff Wachtel and Dawn Olmstead to spearhead in-house production efforts. The network has a lot of projects in the pipeline with a slew of pilot orders and has been going through a portfolio changeover, replacing its older shows with new ones. From a business perspective, continuing White Collar at the current price tag might not have made a lot of sense for USA. But from a legacy standpoint, the show — which boasts one of the network’s most recognizable stars in Bomer and is one of few USA shows to receive critical praise — deserved a proper conclusion. (FtvS also had been willing to shoulder the cost of a final season and was open to a lower license fee.)

WC-Related News Bits  
I've seen a couple of interesting news bits that relate a little to WC today, and I thought I'd share them with you all.

How to Use Chemistry to Age Whiskey in Days Instead of Years (from Mental Floss) - Looks like something Neal would be interested in or would invent!

And FBI says it knows who pulled off unsolved 1990 Boston art heist (from LA Times, 3/18/13) - The FBI claims to know who pulled off the Gardner Museum Heist in the 90s, but they're not naming names yet. I found this one interesting because I've been using some of the stolen art in a fic I'm working on.

The Locked Room...  
The NY Times has a really cool, but brief article up about the atmosphere of different writers' rooms - Focus, People! There’s Work to Do

Five different shows, of different genres and networks and different beliefs about how to work the room (pool table versus no distractions, dry erase boards versus notecards). It's really fascinating to see how shows come together - I was shocked by the strict rules of the Weeds writers' room!
