children of dune - leto 1

it's been that kind of a night

Lalala four days to first day. Nope, not worried. REPRESSING.

Recs, the short version

Admit One by Gigi Sinclair. I ran across this on someone else's rec page and it's FIC I MISSED! *shocked* From A LONG TIME AGO! *grins* Anyway. Fun bit of Lex pov to read and enjoy. The movies just went so very, very wrong.

Four Things That Could Possibly Happen by dystocia. I love the Five Things challenge more every day. Four AUs, all of them so DAMN cool. Special atttention to one and three. Wow. Seriously, wow.

Found by spyhop. Sequel to Seeking, and so cute. *happy sigh* Makes me happy.

*****

The lovely carlanesses sent me the prettiest cover for Fetish. Seriously, this is so cool. SV attracts the best manippers I have ever seen anywhere.

*happy sigh* I just like looking at it for long periods of time. Guh.

*more happy sighs* I love the world.

In Which I Do My "Koi Is a Goddess on Earth" thing, or, Why I Think the Kents Were on Crack the Day of the Meteor Shower

Having ignored my friendslist for twenty four hours to focus on getting myself caught up, I went to look today, briefly, I swear, and lo, Koi had posted. As this is a blue moon sort of thing, I sat down to read and of course, it's on Mercy. Because this is a good week, God is kind, and apparently, I'm getting wishes granted ALL over the place.

For reference, Mercy. Revised, overhauled, and beyond excellent.

You know, the fic I consider the best SV's ever produced and part of my personal trifecta of fics that need to be read to reground myself in everything Smallville fanfic (or fanfic in general) can be when the author is superlative.

Right, you've heard me talk about this before? Consider this redux.

But first, without a doubt, read Mercy Redux, Part I and Mercy Redux, Part II, where koimistress goes over what she revised, why, and what she was thinking when she wrote this. Incredibly interesting, insightful, and fascinating stuff.

How I Spent the Last Few Hours

I started this entry before I went to get dinner, and that was three and a half hours ago.

What, one must think. Whereas does she live, that she must gather food that far from home?

Funny story.

My sister and I decided to get dinner at McDonalds and Mr. Gattis tonight, so wandered off to do so after a diaper run to Wal-Mart. Blah blah blah somehow it's my fault (it's not), but the keys were locked in the car.

At McDonalds. With a one and a half year old girl and a six year old boy. It's cold and windy outside. It's very bright inside. They don't let these kind of experiences happen in PRISON, becaue it's cruel and unusual. My sister went looking for something to open the door, thus leaving me with The Children. Then she went looking for a cell phone.

Of course, no one we know is home. Because it's Friday and people have lives.

Anyway, long story short, one sundae, two orders of fries, a cheeseburger, a medium sprite, and a coffee later, (not to mention the giggling of an entire damn fast food restaurant when they figured out what had happened AND a kind of gripey yet strangely amused sister) my sister's fiancee brought the spare key and we got home safely.

But here's a couple of things I learned.

1.) Children can't cry when their mouths are full of ice cream and fries. Very valuable.
2.) The car antenna is a lot harder to get off than you might think.

Right. This has been a good night.
