Home to Roost (an Eragon fic with too many titles)

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Author’s Note: So, this is Eragon Redux III: Home to Roost (in which I, unlike CP, manage to wrap up a story in 3 parts). Perhaps somewhat obviously, it follows Eragon Redux and Eragon Redux Part II. I really wanted this story to go somewhere, but I’m not sure it actually does. Also, when I […]

Now I know what *I’ll* be doing tomorrow…

Monday, August 31st, 2009

Okay, other than going to work, and calling various companies that keep billing me for *no reason* (no, they can’t have my $6.50 — the whole reason I have their card is to *not* be charged $6.50; I’m not paying it just because it’s easier than complaining!). And putting some serious thought into starting my […]

Fic Rec-‘o-The-Day (HP/Merlin xover)

Friday, August 28th, 2009

There’s something about the Harry Potter fandom, isn’t there? No matter how many times I leave, I just keep coming back. I thought this fic was a hoot — silly, and yet oddly sweet as well. So Merlin Emrys, Here is Your Holiday, by crazyboutremmy Summary: Merlin and Arthur go to Hogwarts! Halfway into the […]

There are no words…

::Dear Boss — Please skip this entry. You were there, so you heard everything I wanted you to hear out loud when I said it. Everything else was in my head, and not really intended for your consumption. Thanks.:: Now that the disclaimer is out of the way, what the what? Tuesday night was the […]

McShep Match

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Usually I stumble over McShep Match sometime in the fall, long after the voting has closed, once the recs start showing up on other peoples’ lists and folks start asking for them over at sga storyfinders. But I was randomly clicking through my bookmarks today, trying to avoid writing, and I realized that McShep Match […]

Ramble-y Update Post

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

1. For the last week or so, about half my posts have gotten hacked within 12 hours of posting. It seems to be just a long string of repeating links that gets added onto the end of the text, which has the effect of turning the post invisible on WordPress. So far it’s been a […]

Yes, this.

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

I’ve been trying to write a post about the use of destiny in the Merlin fandom, and it’s been coming out mostly rambling and without any point. Then tonight I read Accidental Memory In The Case Of Death, by derryere, which I found utterly confusing. I had no idea what was going on most of […]

Merlin Season 1

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Now that I’ve seen the whole season, I can officially say this: What was up with that ending? There was this huge emotional buildup and then… nothing. Luckily, the nice thing about watching a show after you’re already involved in the fanfic is that I’ve got lots of post-Questing Beast fics to reread now! For […]

Star Trek fic rec o’-the-day
