Winter Sunlight

Spamming my f'list

First a random rec that I've had sitting around for ages:

Thin-Spun Life by troyswann - Being Human, all the housemates; sort of a fix-it for the season two finale, except that it seems weird to call it a fix-it when it's so sharp and chest-hurty. But this is a brilliant story -- heartbreaking and wonderful, with gorgeous language and absolutely spot-on characterizations; all the relationships and the character voices are perfect. It's not really depressing, it's just ... hard-edged, and one of the most brilliant fics I've read in this fandom.

Okay, there's that. In other news, I'll be house-sitting in Anchorage this weekend, which means my Internet access will be random and, also, just on the off chance ... does anyone on my f'list live in that general area? (I've already PM'd the one Alaskan f'listie that I know about.) Hey, if anyone else lives in Southcentral AK, we could have coffee and meet up or something? I'll be there from Thursday through Monday, and visiting plans for family and friends are being finalized, but my schedule is pretty loose right now. :)

sga_genficathon is done posting. Author reveals will be in a week or so! If SGA gen is your cuppa, check out all the fic. :)

You can always tell when the writing isn't going well ...

... because I write LJ posts instead!

Considering that I only filled in, what, two squares on my cliche_bingo card, I do not need to sign up for H/C bingo, right? Right. But I waaaaaaant to. XD (Here: Their list of h/c cliches for the bingo cards. See why I'm tempted?)

I did get my first choice for the SGA Reverse Bang, so now I have 5000 words of fic to write by early July. (Well, by June 25th or so in my case, since I'm off on another trip then.) My art is done and off to the writer, so all is looking good on that front!

*goes to post* WTF ... THE INTERNETS ARE GONE. (My internet access just went down. Let's see if it's back by the time I'm done typing this sentence. STILL NOT BACK. Guess I'll take a walk and see if it comes back. Sure, I could work on the short story I'm supposed to be writing today, but that would just be silly.)

Nevermind, it's back, although slow. You know, I think it says a lot about my life that I actually notice if our DSL goes out for two or three minutes.
