children of dune - leto 1

thanks, recs, webpage, and some snark

Thanks first:

I had a nice birthday, thank you all! And all the well-wishing was absolutely great. I'm trying to answer everyone, so bear with me. Thanks to the wonderfulSlodwick and my darlingBethy for the birthday pictures (squee!), Lex Luthor's Guide to Defrocking Superheros by in_stead, which was just adorable, Hallway by bexless (and MAN was this hot, oh DAMN), and the lovely isilya made me a cover for No Step Had Trodden Black. liviapenn, being generous, offered me one Torture Clark For Free entry, which after tonight? Shall totally use.

Watch for the cut tags later tonight, chica. *eg*

And issaro, being another one of those whizzes with graphics (SV has a LOT of those), also sent me an absolutely stunning cover for Standing in the Common Spaces. *amazed*

Recs:

Chloe: Year One by liviapenn She's a fic TEASE. A fascinating Alternate History Chloe in Gotham story, with so many damn POSSIBLITIES. TEASE, I tell you. An excellent story all around.

Scotch Gambit by rivkatIn which Rivka creeps me out and gives a terrible, fascinating story. Martha--huh. Originall recced as War Games in Rivka's Lj, it's up and posted. I suggest reading.

After by rageprufrock Okay, how I forgot to rec I have no idea, but this bit of post-Insurgence fic is just--right. Bitter, edgy, and--very real. *sighs*

Speak Loudly For Him by slodwick I love how Slodwick writes Chloe, and in this? Pitch perfect. Lovely an dsad and true to her character. And heartbreaking as hell.

Satisfying by sa. Um. Hot. With food. And kinks. *g*

Round One by lexcorp_hope Another hot one, with boxing. Lex and Helen, and seriously good.

Fortress of Dorkitude by mobiusklein *snickers* Um. I almost ruined a keyboard. Very funny bit of Clexness.

Webpage:

http://seperis.illuminatedtext.com is the new addy for my site. I've fixed more links, especially the Star Trek Voyager ones, but I'm still fixing the pointers to the stylesheets. Please report any broken links. I THINK I found them all and people have been very kind to email me to tell me when a link doesn't work. Very cool. Thanks for that, too.

Jennish Things:

I ended up rewriting my badfic rant in a fit of birthday snark (don't ask), and noted that if I replace 'meanness' with 'snark', I don't sound quite so vicious, but damn.

My love to pearl_o for my source of recent trauma. You. Are. Going. To. Hell. She's pretty much the pure indiluted inspiration, thanks to a cleverly given link with NO warning on what would be in store for me when I started reading.

rhiannonhero was talking a while back about guilty pleasure stories and why she reads them. I have a guilty pleasure FOLDER. I will admit I read these only in restricted chat with people I also can blackmail. It's quite a list.

There's--something deeply addictive about true badfic. And before anyone winces? Probably not about you. Trust me on this one.

Huh. So I CAN rant in my LJ. Who knew? I think I tricked myself. Not that it's a rant. More like a cleansing. *G*

I shall think happy thoughts. I have the four disk LotR DVD (squee!) and chocolate cupcakes and generalized good moods going on. Not to mention a pound of candy. Mmmm. Candy.

svreview - suspect

Hee!

musesfool wrote A Game of You, my birthdayfic! *happy dance* Pretty, pretty fic that makes me smile. And rescued from my web filters (and damn, my ISP is annoying me with this), a lovely ecard from Gothphyle. *huggles* I'll email a reply in a sec.

And thete1 sent me icons! Which I shall upload whenver the heck LJ LETS ME.

*grrs to LJ* And by teh way, LJ? Send me my comments already? You know, just for kicks.

*sighs*

Annnyway.

Suspect. Let me count the ways I enjoyed it.

And? Safe for Livia-viewing. Though it rambles. Ramble, ramble ramble. Wait for the lovely latxcvi and thamiris and lexcorp_hope for examination of all the complexities and pretty moments. I'm still high on the fact that Lex wore red again and really makes that color look GOOD.
