strina: text only "this is wrinkling my brain" (c - wrinkling my brain)
So I'm cycling through fandoms really rapidly right now? Thinking about it, I seem to do this in reaction to dissatisfaction with the current big fandom of my life (SGA, Smallville, Teen Wolf, etc.). It's like taking a break from your SO and having a bunch of one night stands.

At one point, I basically did have a one night stand with SG1. I still ship Jack/Daniel so hard, you guys. I spent like four hours making ebooks. So much Biblio. So much whump.

Also, I triplemegaheart the AO3 now and forever, but I forgot how much I enjoyed some single fandom archives. Area 52 lets you filter out all of the first person POV fics! I want that option everywhere, all the time. And they let you filter to specific episode spoilers, which is obviously not widely feasible, but still pretty friggin' great.

The best feature I've never seen anywhere else is still Twisting the Hellmouth's story tracker, though. IT TELLS YOU WHAT CHAPTER YOU LEFT OFF AT ON EVERY WIP YOU'VE REGISTERED AS SOMETHING YOU'RE READING. IF YOU SUB AN AUTHOR, IT TELLS YOU WHICH STORIES YOU'VE READ AND WHICH YOU HAVEN'T. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

I saw Rise of the Guardians while I was housesitting and it was a pretty good movie! So obviously I immediately went looking for porn.

There are two main pairings and one is about an undead amnesiac teenage-appearing frost sprite who's been isolated for three centuries and an evil golden-eyed British-sounding dude who feeds on fear and can control shadows and corrupted dreamsand in a way that can very much mimic tentacles. Also there is a tragic backstory (legendary warrior and general! lost child! corrupted/possessed by the very evil he fought, it's all very "he who fights monsters") and HE LITERALLY ASKS JACK TO RULE THE WORLD WITH HIM (WHAT GOES TOGETHER BETTER THAN COLD AND DARK?) BASED ON THEIR LEGIT CONNECTION OF BEING IGNORED/NEGLECTED/DISTRUSTED BY BASICALLY EVERYONE. The other pairing is the frost sprite and the last surviving Pooka, aka, giant humanoid bunny. So I ship the fuck out of Pitch/Jack (cold and dark!) and my xenokink enjoys Bunny/Jack. A+ small fandom, basically.

And now I'm having a Glee thing again? I just really love Kurt a lot, okay, and so I am currently reading a shit-ton of Kurt/anyone that isn't Blaine, PLEASE REC ME SOMETHING.

I just read like a 150,000 words of Kurt/Sebastian because the anti-Klaine tag is really attractive. I was going to reference the porridge analogy, but it turns out I never unprivated that entry, so it will be reproduced at the bottom of the post! Basically, I am VERY YES on Kurt/Puck and Kurt/Karofsky and okay, sure on Kurt/Adam and Kurt/Sebastian and Kurt/Starchild and LAST RESORT on Kurt/Blaine for several reasons, but one of the big ones is the perennial ship problem of me fangirling the hell out of one character and a lot of people fanning the hell out of the other character.

Appropriate segue is appropriate.

ALSO ALSO ALSO, I FORGOT I HADN'T MENTIONED. I NOW OWN THE VMARS MOVIE AND I WATCHED SIX TIMES BEFORE I HAD TO STOP BECAUSE THERE'S NOT ENOUGH GOOD VERONICA/LOGAN LONGFIC* AND IT WAS BECOMING A PROBLEM IN MY LIFE. I SHIP IT SO HARD THAT IT HURTS ME A LITTLE.

And profic, even.

I have fallen kind of madly in love with Shelly Laurenston's Pride series, y'all. THE WORLDBUILDING IS SO GOOD FOR ME. I poked at her Magnus Pack series, which predates and is loosely connected, but I had to tap out of that. The Pride series, though? I will be exchanging actual dollars for book 9 at the end of the month.

It would have been super easy for me to write them off as more terrible werewolf romance novels and that would have been a very sad mistake. Are they the best things I've ever read? No. But even the short story where a dude kidnaps a girl and they fall in love isn't rapey! He respects and adores her and she makes all the moves and it is great. That's, like, the unicorn of romance novels.

THERE ARE MULTIPLE BOOKS ABOUT BADASS FEMALE EX-MARINES. The scariest person in this whole generation of characters? Dee Ann Smith. Second place I can't decide, but the people in the running are three ladies and one guy.

Also, it's not just wolves, it's all kinds of shifters! THE HEROINE IN BOOK 9 IS A HONEY BADGER SHIFTER. SHE WILL RIP OFF YOUR FACE, SHE DON'T GIVE A FUCK. I LOVE HER. My favorite hero is Bo Novikov, whose dad was a polar bear and mom was a lion. His fiancee (herself a wolfdog, which is a famously unstable mix in-verse) insists on calling him a bearcat. There are jackals and grizzlies and tigers and African wild dogs and I am really hoping for a hyena hero(ine), because even as extremely minor characters those are some creepy motherfuckers.

There are main characters of color! And not just a couple - it's about half and half, at least on the ladies' side. YMMV on that, though, because species is treated as a much bigger issue than race. Personally, I kind of loved that we were halfway through Jess's book before I realized she was black, because it made sense. She and Smitty had known each other since they were kids. Of course he wouldn't think stuff about "that gorgeous black woman", he was just thinking "hot damn, Jessie Ann grew up nice". Blayne was targeted for a hate crime because she was a wolf/wild dog mix, not because she was black. (Blayne and the wild dogs are the best, btw.)

Anyway, the first book (actually two short stories) - not great. Book two, Jess and Smitty - pretty good, but it gets kind of weird for me at the end. Book three, Sissy Mae and Mitch - I love every redneck bit of it. Sissy has a fucked up relationship with her mother that's actually really well explained and the book itself is just really funny. It's the first book in the series I read and I find it a pretty good starting point.

But the comm is now sitting at 1150! Come on, when you realize you're that close to 1000, that becomes your next goal in life. OVERWHELMINGLY m/m (870-ish, with m/m/m making up a further 30 or so), but I'm going with ~240 f/f not being bad at all.

Also, I'm reading Sean Michael and regretting a lot of life-choices lately and this may have been reflected in my posting choices. He is my pro-fic version of terrible-Xander-crossovers girl, y'all. I wish I could quit them, but then there's something that's almost amazing and I'm right back in again. I maybe read Trust and was seduced by the friendship before fucking dynamic. This lead to several terrible books (and a couple okay ones! v. exciting and unexpected) and a new round of poking at Bent, which I have never summoned up the courage to read, because it could be great, or it could be ALL OF THE CONSENT ISSUES, it honestly seems like a toss-up.

I need to do a massive amount of tagging, but shhh, we're not thinking about that now, because that way lies despair and madness and the weird makes-you-think-you're-hallucinating loop at skip=720.

Now I sleep the sleep of the victorious!

To anyone that has readtherainbow on their reading list, sorry 'bout that?

To any other members, I just did a significant update.

To anyone who isn't a member, I come bearing a warning: Robin Roseau's Madison Wolves series looks amazing, BUT THAT IS A TRAP. Things get DEEPLY FUCKED UP. Like, I have read bandom's the cultverse and PETE LETTING GABE PUT PATRICK IN THE BASEMENT WAS LESS FUCKED UP THAN THE BACHELORETTE PARTY IN THESE FUCKING BOOKS. JOHN AND RODNEY IN SEPERIS'S CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY HAVE A HEALTHIER RELATIONSHIP THAN LARA AND MICHAELA. BY LIKE, A FACTOR OF TEN.

I am super bitter, as you may have noticed. Keeps-to-herself werefox falls in love with toppy werewolf alpha chick could have been fucking fantastic, you guys. Then you find out that werewolves traditionally hunt werefoxes for sport and that's why Michaela is an orphan and that is still only a 2.5 on this shit's scale of EVERYTHING IN YOUR LIFE IS A PUNISHMENT, MICHAELA REDFUR.

I had to tap out on book three. There are six or seven.

Knotting, that is. Also, for anyone who wishes there was more het knotting, apparently Inuyasha fandom has got your back?

Seriously, I got all nostalgic and started reading some Sess/Kag fic I downloaded like three years ago and bam! And now I'm apparently into it. Yay for a new awkward google search.

But seriously, how awesome is Kagome? SO AWESOME. I just want GIGS of Inuyasha treating her badly and her not taking it and falling for his hot older brother. Canonwise, I ship Inu/Kag, but ficwise, I am 98% Sess/Kag.

Awww, first fandom. It makes me all squishy inside.

I feel just really nervous and restless, which is not at all a good sign of things to come in my brain. It was just a really bad week, you guys. Week and a half, really. I was already edging myself toward a panic attack and then I worked my manager's shift on Saturday (for which I got paid NOT A DIME, because Monday was a bank holiday and so I was still under 40 hours), and then some stuff when down with a guy on my floor at the apartments that was just - awful and dumb and gave me literal nightmares, because there's a guy sexually harrassing you, and then there's a guy sexually harrassing you who lives in your building, likes to listen for movement in the hall outside his door (and you have to pass his door, it's the only to the safe stairs OR the elevator) so he can pop out and make people interact with him, and SURPRISE! who knows which apartment you're in, even though the hallway is constructed in such a way that he literally cannot have seen you go in there from his apartment. Also, he's persistent enough to knock on a door for hours with no encouragement.

There's since been a police report, because I didn't know at the time that you even could call the police for stuff like that if there weren't threats or something physical.

And then the friend that I work with, who persuaded to get this job, had her last day Friday and left me with a manager that I kind of want to yell at a lot. Which is complicated by the fact that when I was hired, our district manager was very careful to ask if I would have a problem working under a manager younger than me, because they'd had to let somebody go for taking constant issue with her. I do not give a fuck about her age, I care about a) the on-the-job training that I never fucking got, that I have literally been to other branches and seen, b) the fact that this last week makes TWO Saturdays I have had to come in and work on my day off, without pay, and that for NEITHER of them did she give me one of the tip cards we're supposed to get for going above and beyond the job (it's only worth $10, but that is still fucking better than $0), and c) that she's folding volunteer work into her manager position in such a way that she's planning fundraisers for Relay for Life every two weeks and everybody gets voluntold to bring stuff and shamed in front of everybody else if they don't. It's a good cause and all, but I literally cannot afford to spend ten to twenty dollars on it out of every paycheck.

Like I said, not one thing to do with her aga, ALL to do with shitty management choices.

He has sexual chemistry with EVERYTHING.

So, I'm maybe addicted to The Blacklist and maybe just discovered that I desperately need a Blacklist BDSM AU where Red is a completely infatuated dom who figured it'd be easy to sweep Liz off her feet once he cleared up that whole husband-slash-I'm a master criminal thing and completely overlooked her giant trust issues. Because Liz might be a sub, but she'll never tolerate a situation where there isn't equal vulnerability now, and Red is constitutionally opposed to open vulnerability.

Anyway, I didn't really want to ship it? But he indulges and protects her at his own expense and yet clearly also respects her competence and the combination is super good for me. Also, Anslo Garrick cemented my love for her forever.

So! I realized that a couple posts ago I referenced the Christmas of Inappropriate Books and then never explained.

I come from a family of booknerds, at least on my father's side, and my mother did everything in her power to foster that. She read to me in the womb. I teethed on books. I got books instead of toys when we went places. I am the only person I know who got targeted "how to read out loud correctly" lessons from my father (second grade! super useful, though).

Anyway, Christmas, fourth grade. My dad a) doesn't re-read books, and b) no longer regards scifi/fantasy as legit genres for adults. I supermegaheart scifi/fantasy and have begun sneaking into the adult section of the public library because I'm running out of YA sf/f not entirely focused on dudes.

After all the other presents are opened, my dad and uncle drag in ten or twelve large plastic totes and tell me they are all BOOKS FOR ME from when my dad was a kid/teenager. I leap upon them like they are everything I never knew I wanted, BECAUSE THEY ARE, and am lost in a new book haze for a good chunk of time. While I'm distracted, the adults are also looking through the books, because nostalgia, IDK. To this day, I have no idea which book my dad was looking at, but it apparently reminded him pretty hard that 70s scifi, not so appropriate for eight year olds, even ones reading at a high school level. SUDDENLY, THE BOOKS WERE MOSTLY TAKEN AWAY.

Thus began my six-year campaign of sneaking MY NEW BOOKS out of the garage and back. Because you do not give a booknerd books and then tell she can have all of them only when she's some nebulous "older". Podkayne of Mars and Friday and Spaceling were TOTALLY WORTH the subterfuge. Stranger in a Strange Land and John Varley's Titan...MAYBE I HAVE SOME REGRETS.

*AMANUENSIS WROTE A BOOK, Y'ALL. I literally shouted holy fuck when I read the author bio. I honestly can't remember who's fannishly out under their professional pseuds, so I'm leery to name names, but there are three or four just off my flist. It's like seeing a familiar author pop up in your new fandom, except superweird.

So...a week ago, I had a perfect day.

Not a good day or even a great day, it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. I got exactly enough sleep, everything I ate was delicious, I did everything I wanted, I didn't worry about anything, it was amazing.

Like, if heaven was time loop, it would be July 2, 2013.

So. I'm in a cast now. For a STRAINED WRIST. Like, it was getting worse, not better, even wearing a brace, but still, this seems a little extreme. I was legit the only one in my family NEVER TO BE IN ONE OF THESE STUPID THINGS. I am a little cranky about my lost perfect record.

Cast = can't lift feed = can't work at Atwoods. So I am off until the end of the month at least. On the one hand, money may become a bit of an issue. I've got two weeks paid vacation I can take, plus my birthday is a paid holiday, plus any birthday money (basically? if it had to happen, SO GLAD it happened in May), but still. I can borrow from my dad if it gets desperate, I would just rather not if I can help it.

On the other hand, IT IS FOUR GLORIOUS WEEKS OFF FROM WORK. Admittedly, four weeks that will encompass barely any computer time, because the cast is on my right wrist and I can only manage to contort it to fit a mouse for about an hour before my shoulder starts killing me.

So! I don't usually do this, and I want to stress that zero obligation or guilt is intended, but I am going to be pretty fucking bored in a couple weeks, so if anyone wanted to send me a book or two*, I would love them forever.

*Yes, the name on the wishlist is Katherine, yes, it's still me. A couple weeks ago I found a Kindle in an antique store (I don't know either!) for 25 bucks, so obviously I had to get it. It went on a second account because my actual account has working-kindle Metis, broken-kindles Pallas and Seshet, and my kindle for PC and someone told me they cap you at five.

Also, book-filter people, the comm I talked about will no longer spam you if you want to check it out. It is locked to members-only for obvious reasons.

There is no sad like "someone recced a whole REC LIST, so excited, I will have all the fic! ...I HAVE READ ALL OF THESE ALREADY" sad.

I am moving next Friday, but I am bingeing on Teen Wolf instead of packing becauase I am sick and everything is disgusting. Like, I am failing at coughing in a really gross way, WORSE THAN LAST TIME I WAS SICK, and last time they made me go outside before the noises made anyone vomit.

I am really bad at meatsuits, guys.

My application is being reviewed for an apartment and I am just, terrified either way, kind of? Because living on my own has historically NOT GONE WELL for me, but you guys, THIS APARTMENT. It is literally at least 10 times better than anything else I could afford in Chickasha, because it's income based housing in a historical building that just went through a $7 million remodel. THEY ARE THE ONLY APARTMENTS IN TOWN WITH ELEVATORS. It would be 564 sq. foot for $415/mo! I LITERALLY GOT TO GO THROUGH THE BUILDING AND JUST PICK WHICH APARTMENT LOOKED GOOD TO ME, BECAUSE A) THEY ALL HAVE INDIVIDUAL FLOOR PLANS AND B) THEY'RE ALL CURRENTLY EMPTY.

So I could use some luck, if you've got it to spare.

Oh man, other cashiers keep getting into arguments/discussions with customers about the open-carry law and it is uncomfortable. Because people standing behind me arguing with people about guns, most often while the other person HAS a gun = not my favorite!

For real, I don't give a shit about it anywhere other than work, but at work? It's people with guns wandering a store where 1) the visible staff is mostly, and the cashier department entirely, female, 2) the registers are less than ten feet from the doors, and 3) there is no on-site security or alarms or panic buttons or anything - the only phones that can actually dial outside lines are AT the registers or in the back offices WITH THE VAULT, we would literally have to wait for whoever to finish and leave the store before alerting police.

SUPER FUN.

strina: stiles in profile caption "little red riding hood" (stiles - little red riding hood)
I really want the AO3 to have a "download series" option. Because ~20,000 words spread over ten fics is just irritating.

I'm 39 stories into the Teen Wolf list. People need to write more fic so I can finish it. I am fishbowling so hard. Like, I've opened my in-case-of-emergency Teen Wolf longfic (I highly recommend keeping similar on your Kindle, btw) and tapped out four times this weekend. It's so long and the tags are so good, you guys, but the first word is literally "harken" and I cannot even deal with that stylistic choice. That is why it's the in-case-of-emergency fic. It's really, really yes, but at the same time, really, really NO.

Not gonna lie: I spend a significant amount of time after uploading new icons just staring at the expanded icons page and going MY TASTE IS AMAZING AND I WANT A COLLAGE OF THESE BEAUTIFUL MOTHERFUCKERS. Also, I have some very definite patterns in taste. It's kind of weird to be like, huh, I...really prefer close-up shots only after staring at a page where more than half of my 250 icons ARE CLOSE-UP SHOTS. Also enjoy: saturated colors and text only. Do not enjoy: animated icons or icons with many effects - I apparently feel the point should be made through your cropping and/or text, or not at all. Like, I save a lot of icons that don't fall along those lines? But those are apparently not the icons I end up using.

All I want to eat is IHOP, but IHOP is a cool 40 minutes away. Chickasha is a terrible town. Although it does make googling shit easier - there is only one. Anywhere.

Fucking store inventory. It is a once a year shitshow. We are missing $1200+ in jewelry that never leaves its locked case. For real, somebody's got sticky fingers. Also, I work six days next week. The money's good, but oh, chances of me flipping out on someone are high.

Relatedly, nothing makes you feel great about your life-choices like seeing an old news article about migrant workers and their slave-wages and seeing your ACTUAL FUCKING WAGES there. Legitimately, after five years and a "promotion", I make $9.00/hr.

I want season 3 of Lost Girl so baaaad, you guys. They are so good at ladies being friends and having adventures! Bo/Kenzi is my brotp forever, y'all. Like, if I want girls being friends as a major part of the storyline, it's mostly Lost Girl and Cougar Town and maaaybe Big Bang Theory (Penny and Amy? legit my favorite part of the show). Relatedly, I need the new season of Cougar Town.

I feel weird about Avengers fandom, in that I love Tony Stark THE MOST, HE IS MY BELOVED, and I could kind of give a shit about Steve Rogers? Which is not the way most of fandom seems to have come down on the issue. It's not the first fandom where that's happened to me (hi, Star Trek TOS! hi, DS9 and Naruto and HIMYM and and and), but it's still fucking weird. There's also some weirdness because I got deep into Avengers right after the first Iron Man movie and imprinted on a lot of comics stuff and apparently my head-canon is very definite about where comics-verse and movies-verse can blur and where they CANNOT. Basically? Movies-Tony and Extremis = NOOOOOO.

Only semi-relatedly, I really want movies-Asgard to end up in Oklahoma somehow because 1) that is fucking hilarious and 2) they might actually film some stuff in Oklahoma, which excites me because a) Oklahoma is actually really fucking pretty and does not really get credit for it and b) I could totally drive to see that.

SO MANY COOKIES. Like, okay, the recipe said it would make 36 cookies? That was a filthy fucking lie, to the point where everyone who walked in immediately went SO MANY COOKIES. And of the pumpkin-ginger, pumpkin-cardamom, pumpkin-pecan, and pumpkin-white chocolate chip combos, I did not expect that last one to be the fail. I totally thought I would end up overspicing one of the first two, but no, they are delicious.

Unfortunately, I have dough for more cookies (different recipe, also makes "36" cookies) in the fridge. Waiting.

I just wanted to know which recipe was better! And now I am going to have like 90 cookies. I mean, they are weirdly low ingredient for this kind of yield, I'm not convinced there isn't magic involved.

New Kindle is named Metis, because when I find a naming schema I like, I will run it into the goddamn ground.

24 items into a Derek/Stiles list, because I am just so full of feelings and using other people's rec lists keeps biting me in the ass. There are about ten stories that I hate? But if I see a link I follow it, because I cannot remember I've read them, let alone that I hate them. It is a fandom with a lot of tropes, ok, and sometimes a new story feels familiar because tropes and sometimes a story feels familiar because it is the one you wanted to throw across the room.

But yes, new list, finally. I feel bad that I haven't posted one since fucking March? But getting a Kindle radically changed the way I interact with fandom at large and I was trying to keep reccing without adjusting that at all and it got horrible and frustrating and I just needed to not.

Have broken my Kindle once again. Everything is terrible until I have the new one. My eyes can no longer handle the computer screen long enough to sate my desperate desire for Teen Wolf fic. I stared at a computer for TWENTY-SEVEN HOURS STRAIGHT for Sacrifices Arc, but now I am like three hours = migraine. The Kindle's soothing display has broken me.

"Pack feels" and "Stiles is pack mom" are both legit tags with 68 and 26 works, respectively. Everything is beautiful.

I am deep in the heart-eyes portion of fandom infatuation now, guys. There was this fic where Stiles was suddenly a housewife caricature of epic proportion and I FINISHED THAT SHIT. BECAUSE I JUST WANT THE PACK HAVING FEELS FOR STILES ALL THE TIME EVERYWHERE.

Also, I almost feel shame about this one? But I TOTALLY want some Peter/Stiles post-s2 fic, where crazy feral!Peter totally wanted to bite Stiles and so does apparently sane undead!Peter, he's just way more subtle and convincing. Like, it could totally go a horror romcom direction where everyone else is aghast and Stiles is all "but you guys, he has some good points and it's not he's the only one who's gone a little psycho after a trauma, Allison, and he keeps bringing me presents!". Or it could go the "all Hales are creepers" unrequited/stalking fic. I DO NOT CARE, I AM PRETTY SURE EITHER WOULD BE AMAZING.

Also the Sentinel AU (maybe a Sentinels are known AU?) where Stiles turns out to be a Guide and says thanks but no thanks, kinda got my hands full with all these adolescent werewolves, seriously, awesome plan, Derek.

"But, I got that wasted in twenty minutes?" Justin said. "I mean, I was kissing Carson Daly wasted! I've never been that wasted before!"

"Or so you'd have us believe," Lance said. "I don't know, I didn't think Carson looked all that surprised."

"You seemed to really want to be drunk," Joey said. "You were on a mission."

"I have never in my life seen anyone get that drunk, that fast, and then stay that drunk," Chris said. He put an arm around Justin's shoulders and grinned at him. "You're an inspiration to idiots everywhere."

Justin hid his face in his hands. An awful thought struck him, and he lifted his head. "Did I. Did I do anything else that bad?" he asked plaintively. He was not comforted when Chris, Lance and Joey bellowed with laughter again.

"No," Chris gasped, "no, you didn't do anything else that bad."

"Christopher Alan Kirkpatrick," Lance said, "I believe you are telling a fib."

"You didn't do anything else that bad," Chris said again, his arm still around Justin's shoulders as he tried to catch his breath, "but you did many, many things that were much, much worse."

I am so full of fandom feels, you guys. Like, I need scads of OTT epics with h/c and angst and misunderstandings immediately but they are nowhere to be found feels. THE SAD, DESPERATE, PSYCHOTICALLY HOPEFUL FEELS.

Like, you know that slow-motion NOOOOOOOOOOOO when something falls that you desperately wish you could stop but know you have no chance of catching. My voice of reason is doing THAT "no" in the back of my head because I keep accidentally pimping myself into fandoms where I have ALREADY EXHAUSTED MY POSSIBILITIES. Like Winter's Bone and The Sentinel and FUCKING VIEWFINDER, ARE YOU KIDDING. I EVEN TRIED FF.NET AND THERE ARE ONLY FIVE FICS OVER 10,000 WORDS AND *THREE OF THEM ARE IN FRENCH* AND I DON'T KNOW WHERE THE FIC IIIIIIIS FOR THIS FANDOM, I ONLY KNOW IT IS NOT ANYPLACE I AM FAMILIAR WITH. ALSO I AM PRETTY UNCOMFORTABLE WITH ASAMI'S EVERYTHING WHILE AT THE SAME TIME I WOULD LIKE ANOTHER 100,000 WORDS OF IT, PLEASE.

What's worst? I know as soon as I stop clawing pathetically at my monitor for giant id-ficcy rescue-from-Hong-Kong fic (for real, I would read the shit out of some healing cock fic set after that arc, EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING IS RIDICULOUS ANYWAY) and Sentinels-are-known AUs full of LOGISTICS and DESTINY (...I want Keira Marcos to write more of eveything all the time, basically) and soppy domestic amazingness where Ree marries Gail and possibly joins the army...

I'm going to fall straight back into wanting fic I cannot even begin to coherently look for: Naruto & Shikamaru = platonic bros of getting shit done.
