Derek knows Laura would’ve liked the Pack. Not so much what he’s done with them. But…

Laura was so very kind and strong. She would have liked Erica and how she kept challenging him and he bet Laura would make teasing remarks that Derek was needed elsewhere and could Erica stay and talk to her for a while?

Boyd, Derek knows, would’ve been Laura’s first choice because he had been Derek’s last. And Boyd would be the calm that kept Laura grounded when she had the moon baiting her to let it all go. Because Laura was kind and strong but also vey adamant.

Derek also knows that she would’ve never considered Isaac. Not because he was young or had been abused, but because Isaac was so sweet and uninvolved that she wouldn’t put him in their world. Or maybe she would have, but not like Derek did. She would’ve given a real choice and a real place for him to stay. She would’ve offered herself.

He can admit to himself that he doesn’t know how she would have dealt with Jackson. He knows she’d see him and say “oh” just like when they were kids and she decided she wanted a cat, even knowing animals doesn’t stay long enough with hunters.

She would have liked Scott’s loyalty the best, because her wolf calls for family. And nothing says family like the dysfunctional one Scott has. Never mind that they are humans, following them like it is a choice and not a compulsion to run with wolves. Foolish, so foolish.

All of them.

Derek wants to howl at how Allison wouldn’t have to prove herself to Laura, and not because she’s an Argent. But because she was Scott’s mate first and instinct never lies; if he is Pack, then so is she.

And Lydia. Derek doesn’t know what to make of her. She would have been Laura’s only real choice and Laura would laugh saying it’s because girls rules the world, Derek! But he knows it’s because Lydia would understand and would stay.

When faced with Stiles, Derek knows Laura would have laughed in delight. She would have enticed Stiles like it was a game so he had reasons to return. Because there are few people who would refuse the bite and still stay with them.

His wolf calls for her. But it is his Pack, so he’ll take comfort in knowing she would have approved.

"File-sharers, beware: By July 12, major US Internet service providers (ISPs) will voluntarily begin serving as copyright police for the entertainment industry, according to Cary Sherman, chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The so-called “six-strikes” plan is said to be one of the most effective anti-piracy efforts ever established in the US."

The article goes on to give details. After six notices, internet providers will decide to throttle a person's internet speed, or cut it off altogether. I don't know if they will crack down on torrents only, or if it is up to the internet provider. I get the sense it is up to the internet provider. So some people could get away with downloading non torrents, while others might get their internet service cut off. I urge you to click it and read, as we all know people who download.

No more downloading eps of your favorite shows for vidding, gifs, or fanfiction art. No more downloading screencaps possibly. I'm so sorry my friends. I don't even know if BT Guard will work to protect you, but I would google it if I were you. It is a professional service that supposedly can protect you from the invasive eyes of your internet provider.

Just, my friends, please make each other aware. Please be aware of the date JULY 12TH. Mark your calendar and double check with your internet provider by then. If you start receiving notices of downloaded activity, this is why. And your internet service could be throttled or cut off.

Fox News confirms this:

ETA: Petition for RIAA and the Obama Administration: Stop ISPs from launching a massive copyright spying scheme this July 12th

I'm Canadian so this only affects where I get my stuff from--FOR THE MOMENT. Shit rolls downhill, yo.

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.
