Monday fic flashback

Monday, January 5th, 2015

At least for the month of January, I decided on ‘fic quotes that have stuck with me’ for the Monday theme. (Of course, then it turned out that I’d remembered this one all wrong anyway, but the idea of it was still there.) “That was my important story, that used to be the important story. […]

Excellent collection started over at The Left Hand of Franklin on AO3. (Oh, Due South. It was like seeing old friends again, and look, they’re so happy together!)

not exactly what I had planned

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

I haven’t been feeling so great this weekend, with my crazy sinus congestion as the main contributor to the feeling that everything is suddenly immensely difficult. Since it’s easy and distracting, I’ve been reading fics on my nook, starting with the A’s and working forward. So far I’ve run into: Harry Potter, West Wing, Avengers, […]

Long weekend? Time for fic!

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

Somehow, I managed to schedule myself a four day weekend. (\0/) Given that today was beautiful, and a perfect day for playing outside, of course I spent my time sleeping and reading fanfic.

Hot. Hazy. Humid. Have some fics.

Five Minute Fics

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

The Internet has not been kind to my attention span. I used to pass by stories under 5000 words (mostly because I was using dial-up, and it wasn’t a lot of return on time investment, you know?). Now I see something over 5000 and I’m all, “Hmmm, I don’t know… Do I want to make […]
