Wow, it's been almost two weeks since I last posted. I've been busy with home improvements and festage writing. And this week I've been miserably sick. Thankfully not as sick as last year, but sick nevertheless /0\

I've been watching a lot of television. I'm starting the third season of Bones. I've watched both seasons of Rome. And The Walking Dead started up again. And the obvious shows, of course <3

I actually have a little Eagle ficlet I need to post, too. Just need to make a few corrections. Steampunk AU FTW \0/

I have spidery thanks to give to [ profile] nishi_shinji, [ profile] lolafeist, [ profile] chantefable, [ profile] cassie_black12, [ profile] phoenixacid, [ profile] wincest_drarry, [ profile] nursedarry, [ profile] besamislabios, [ profile] lusiology, [ profile] stellamoon, [ profile] __hibiscus, [ profile] moonflower_rose, [ profile] sra_danvers, [ profile] melusinahp, [ profile] cinnatart and [ profile] literaryspell.

Thank you all so much. I love and adore each and every one of you to pieces ♥ ♥ ♥

So, how failycakes is TMP? I forgot to make fucking tags on my first recs entry. *facepalms* That has now been remedied.

I do have a few fic recs coming, too. One of them is partially typed up. I do apologise for my laziness. Seriously, folks, if you are looking for articulate fic recs, I defer you to [ profile] snegurochka_lee. She who is the polar opposite of me and follows through every Sunday ♥

But, onward and upward!

Don't You Dare Pity Me [WS] by [ profile] dreary5.

How are H/D artists so effin' amazecakes? I saw this last night and gasped with my hand covering my mouth. Like a huge fangirly dork, I might add. I then flailed for about ten minutes before leaving a capslocky comment.

I love fanart. I love looking at it. I love reccing it. I love fanartists. They make me ever so happy. There is so much talent here in fandom. In every fandom. Thank you lovely people who art for us. Your collective genius makes fandom a better place ♥

And now for the steampunky goodness! Years ago, I'm embarrassed to report, I commissioned Draykonis to do a scene from one of my fics. Transferring files from one computer to the next, I discovered it in an oddly named folder and nearly cried. OMG YOU GUYS, I STUPIDLY MISPLACED DRAYKONIS ART!!! THERE IS NOT A PUNISHMENT ON EARTH SUITABLE FOR SUCH A CRIME!!!

A million thanks to [ profile] goss for the resizing. So, without further adieu...

[Le Fic]

Sine Qua Non [PG-13] by [ profile] dracofiend.

This is a no-frills fic. It reminds me of a plain-papered gift surrounded by shiny boxes. And immediately, I'm drawn to the plain-papered gift and wanting to shake it to judge its contents. I've always been more concerned with what's inside, because that's what counts, yes?

In a fandom where common clichés can either disappoint or dazzle, Dracofiend expertly manages the latter with virtuous voyeurism.

Sine Qua Non is polished to a military spit-shine. There's neither a wrinkle to smooth nor a hair to tuck back. Snape's voice is pitch-perfect and Harry is so wonderfully and annoyingly Harry, I'd swear these were DF's characters.

Take care, for this is more than a bit angsty, (I love a too-proud-to-begask-Snape, don't you?), but there's a very satisfying pay-off that left me more than a bit wrung out. Don't want to spoil much more, but I'll leave you all, dear readers, with this: It takes a lot to melt my brain, but it takes a fuck of a lot more to melt my heart. There goes my reputation for being a hardass :-P STFUDJ

Connecting the Dotty [PG-14] by [ profile] igtow.

I wasn't sure if this fic would be my cuppa, but as it turns out, it is undoubtedly one of my favourites so far. This is not an easy read, but a necessary one I think. In Connecting the Dotty, Snape and Harry are well into their golden years, which I had immediately and wrongfully thought unsexy. Which just goes to show, the incredible talent we have in fandom and why after six years I'm still around.

This is a heart-warming, and more importantly, honest look into the lives of two men who have weathered the storms of togetherness despite the inevitable aches of growing old. I cried. I laughed. I frowned. I smiled. And I fell out of my fucking chair when Snape told Harry that he was feeling frisky and not to dawdle, because he didn't know how long it would last. This is really a lovely fic, something I've never seen done before, and I left out a bit wiser and a bit richer because I took a leap of faith.

To be fair, I should mention there is a bit of offscreen Mpreg. I know, I know, where is TMP and what have you done with her, right? I won't lie. I did have to shield my eyes during the two mentions. Mpreg and I are never going to be friends, and we've made our peace with that. In my comment to the author, I question her reasoning, and she unfailingly supplies her motivations, and damn if I can't disagree. Igtow has me here, and all I can say is 'Bless fandom, man, bless fucking fandom.'
