☆ My [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang fic is with the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] lamboyster for beta'ing....only about a month after when I had hoped to have done this by. Oh well...still technically on-time because my date is the 19th. Woot.

☆ I finished No to Your Key of Rust last week....so I started another TSN/RPF WiP. I know. I should have finished the other WiP before I started another....but this prompt was seriously irresistible. Long story short, I am writing a giant fic in which Andrew Garfield is a cat magically made human who loves Jesse Eisenberg who has a super crush on the new marketing guy at work, Justin Timberlake. I have きみはペット in the back of my mind alllll the time, to be completely honest. And that show--not the manga, the liveaction TV show--is, IMHO, the best TV show of all time. So. For romance-novel-meets-JDrama-meets-TSN, hop on over.

☆ MORE TSN RECS!

Only 1 part so far. :( But already around 4k. :)


I always really enjoy it when some fic subtly changes something fanon has started to accept without question. In this one, [livejournal.com profile] aqualined plays with the connections between the four central people a little, allowing Wardo to have a pre-existing (and, so far, thoroughly valid and important) friendship with Chris that is entirely different from the friendship with Mark. I didn't even realize I had them grouped together like I did--like so many fics so convincingly have done already--until this fic tried something different on for size. ALSO. It's brilliant and charming and lovely and includes Wardo cuddling a tiger baby. Just go read it. It makes sense, I swear.

hit the books by anonymous

A FINISHED FIC! THIS FANDOM HAS A FINISHED FIC! 8 PARTS AND FINISHED! DID I MENTION FINISHED?

Is anyone unaware of my literary nerd-dom? No? So it should come as no surprise that a fic that simultaneously romanticizes university libraries AND crackles with wit and vivacity should float my boat, right? ALSO, GUYS. This anonymous is worried about getting a reputation for traversing different fandoms and making them all into romances between reference librarians and professors. This makes me want to start a petition for such an effort, by this particular lovely anon. Can I petition that anon does that? Could s/he hit every fandom of ever and then, I dunno, start another loop?
ifeelbetter: (Dr Who - I Will Survive -- this regenera)
They're taking my wisdom teeth tomorrow. I am feeling contradictory things. On the one hand, AHHHH!surgery. On the other,I am quite excited by the variety of drugs I will be taking. And, as always, I am intrigued by the idea that I won't remember a portion of the day. This also fascinates me about bouts of drunkenness. I mean, I am aware during the portions I forget, right? I'm still essentially me. But it's a chunk that disappears immediately after it occurs. How novel!



ALSO. While grading my last batch of papers last night, me and roomie watched Bend It Like Beckham. I do sooooo love that movie. I also had forgotten how steamy!hot Keira Knightley was in that film. It's interesting because Parminder Nagra is so transcendentally beautiful at some points. Those eyes, right? But KEIRA. Her abs could cut glass.

soooooo....tl;dr: I have massive girl!crushes on Keira Knightley and Parminder Nagra.

But I find Jonathon Rhy Myers unendingly hilarious in this film. I just get flashbacks to Velvet Goldmine and can't at all take his character seriously.
