Just a very brief note to say that while I've been totally absent for ages, I am still reading my f-list and keeping track of all you lovely people in a completely non-creepy stalker kind of way. :p I've been on the road for two months now, travelling around Europe, so I haven't had much LJ time. A belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
Holidays! Finally. Actually, I'm still have quite a few irons on the fire, but at least univeristy work is out of my life for another three weeks or so. I was going to post fic every day for all of July (personal challenge), but...it's the 3rd and I got sidetracked. :p However, I'm hoping that from today onwards I'll keep to my resolution...beware, the fic spamming, it is nigh. For those of you who watch my fic journal, anyway.

I'm at work at this moment with a grand total of nothing to do. Nobody's in the library because it's the end of semester, so everyone has better things to do. On the plus side, I'm being paid to procrastinate, when normally I'd just be at home. Win. I'm primarily trying to keep myself awake. It's very warm, and I'm sleepy. I suspect falling asleep at my desk would be frowned upon.

On the subject of increased fic-writing...if anyone has any drabble requests, please feel free to hit me up. As always, no gaurantees, but ideas for short fic/drabbles you'd like to see me write would be lovely.
Well, I know I've been terribly absent. RL has been kicking my ass, and I've actually been trying to be productive. However, I'm come down with some heinous cold so instead of going to uni I'm curled up watching Hawaii Five-0.

Also, much as I have been out of fandom of late, I have a new obsession. A Game of Thrones. And, more specifically, Daenerys Targaryen. Because she is awesome. Awesome. Of course, the rest of the show is phenomenally good as well. I'm enjoying it immensely because, much as it lacks the depth and detail of the books, it's doing a very good job of dealing with all of the dynastic machinations.

More rambling about 'A Game of Thrones'Collapse )
Just an observation...I'm watching episode 4 of A Game of Thrones and I want to do bad, bad, bad things to Jon Snow. Bad things.

Also, I enjoy the fact that Samwell just assumes that because he's never been with a woman he's a virgin...IT'S BECAUSE HE WAS BANGING ROBB STARRK LIKE THE PORCH DOOR IN A HURRICANE.

Someone just gave me a copy of Plutarch's Lives published in 1846. NERDGASM OF ALL TIME.

I'd love to say it has been an uber-productive week of writing joy, but that would sadly be a lie. I had a happy, optimistic vision involving me propped up in bed with my laptop, drugged but cheerful, drinking soup and merrily tapping away on my laptop. In reality, the various medications I was on made me alternately drowsy and extremely nauseous, so I have spent the last week alternately curled up watching NCIS LA and sleeping. Seriously sleeping. Which might actually be good, given how sleep deprived I was pre-operation. :p Who knows. Anyway, I'm feeling better today and I'm hoping I might actually do some writing in between trying to catch up on all my lectures/reading. They weren't joking when they said having a tonsillectomy would leave me in a fairly pitiful state for a while.

I went for my first outing on Tuesday, which turned out to be somewhat of an error because of the aforementioned nausea. :p It was, however, good to get out of the house. I really, really need to get back to normal life soon. I can only take so much time cooped up.

I have started reading Starfighter, an excellent web comic recommended by the lovely blood_crow. I have to admit, the *cough* action took me by surprise a little, because it got started quite quickly, but hey, who am I to be prudish? The art is lovely. Though very, very NSFW.

I will reply to comments and whatnot soon, I promise. Sorry I've been so lax - everything has just been a massive effort over the last few days. ♥
17 3 11 - Update

Hey lovelies, in case anyone was wondering I got out of surgery about 18 hours ago and should be heading home this morning (I had to stay overnight so they could wake me hourly to check I was still breathing/my heart was still beating/my blood pressure was ok). Touchwood, everything is ok. I'm in a fair bit of pain (probably unsurprisingly), but I woke up hungry and am painstakingly making my way through a muffin, which I figure can only be a good thing.

Thanks to everyone who sent their best wishes! I tell you what, going under general anesthetic was a really trippy experience.

Hope all is well with you guys! I was half listening to the news on Japan last night and it is just so horrible. I dreamt about my own time there and how beautiful and peaceful it was. Such a tragedy. Hope any friends/family of yours over there are ok.

I'm still here! :p It's been a bit of a crazy couple of weeks - back at uni, back at work, plus I've been going out a lot (unusual, I know). As a consequence I am cheerful but exhausted. :p And I have less money than I would like to have. Still, totally worth it. I also have all these text messages I need to send to people reminding them of things, but it's too early in the morning for me to send them. :p Ah well, I can get some work done before I go do some exercise.

But, to the more important news, I'm probably going to be a bit more active/more likely to write fic over the next couple of weeks because I have to have my tonsils out and hence have to have ten days off all work/uni/life commitments. I'm not at all happy about that, because I am really busy at the moment, and the thought of having that much time off is really stressful, but I need to have the operation so...wish me luck! I wish I'd had them out as a child. It's a much bigger/more painful deal as an adult, apparently. But I will just be happy to have them gone and, hopefully, my health improved. The enforced break might see me writing again, as I'm going to need all the distractions I can get. :p

The first installment of Ginn Hale's Rifter is now out. xD It looks amazing. I read an excerpt a while back and was addicted from about the first sentence. I really like Ginn Hale. A good mix of beautiful language, excellent grammar and hot boys sexin' up other hot boys. :p Should be good fun.

If anyone has any good manga/TV/book recs, they would be much appreciated. As I am literally going pretty much be lying in bed/on the couch for nearly two weeks, anything that will keep me from going stir crazy would be nice.

My thoughts are with all those affected by the tragedy in Japan. I hope any of your friends/family over there are safe. Such a horrible thing to have happen.
Well, I just read Out Of The Ashes, which is the sequel to one of my favourite comfort reads, A Strong And Sudden Thaw. They're both by R.W. Day and they feature the rare creature that is canon boylove. It arrived in the post a couple of days ago, and having finished it this morning I feel the need to have a ramble about it. I read a couple of reviews on Amazon that made me think about pairings and characters and Things That Piss Fans Off.

Spoilers, obviously.Collapse )

Ok, so that was an unecessarily long ramble about a book none of you have read. :p But I felt like rambling about it, so there you go.
Partying: I do it wrong.

Why? Why do I do it wrong? Because instead of being like 'OMG YAY FRIDAY NIGHT YAAAAAY' I have concocted a Friday night plan which allows me to dutifully attend two social events and then get back home in time to read the book that just arrived in the mail.

Patrying: I do it wrong.


Nerding: I am queen.
