children of dune - leto 1

surprise me with a smile

We have achieved:

1.) Turkey and deliciousness. My God, the deliciousness. There was corn souflee.
2.) Completed uploading all QAF and all single-entry-in-LJ Merlin fic to Archive of Our Own, link here for those who have really been hating reading in LJ format.
3.) Bought Adam Lambert's album in deluxe, and I kind of can't work out where this is coming from. Yes, I know, astolat, but also, seriously, I listened to him during AI and I liked some of it (I love covers that recreate the original song in interesting ways; I have a playlist that's nothing but covers), and the AMAs were--wow, and the video was amazing, but--okay, yeah, astolat did this. Plus, Whataya Want From Me has been on repeat for about twelve hours now because like I once explained about my dysfunctional relationship with music, only one in ten songs I like and only one in a fuckload more become an obsession that turns into a spiritual journey (fictionally speaking) and hey, this one is it.

I seriously, seriously love this one and For Your Entertainment. They are writing music. They have their own playlist.

Granted, varied with Kelly Clarkson's Already Gone and Daughtry's Life After You and I don't know about anyone else, but I see a pattern here. The only reason David Cook isn't playing is I burned through him writing Merlinfic earlier this year and I haven't recovered from it yet.

I am turkey-enabled and listening to Adam Lambert while re-reading astolat's AIRPS fic. I mean, I'm sure someone somewhere is having a better Thanksgiving, but I cannot see how. I'm not even wearing pants! (I am wearing pajamas.) In bed! There is pie later!

Random recs from the last forty-eight hours of reading.

House of the Living by astolat, AIRPS, zombies. No, really. Zombies. And done so beautifully I kind of hurt from reading it. And really, there should be more fic with Adam armed. Yes, my kinks are not your kinks, but Adam is shooting things and--wait, why isn't this your kink? You are weird.

We Are Not Your Friends (We're Here to Eat You), a fusion of AIRPS and True Blood. This should not work and yet it does and does it well.

Bluebird by basingstoke, Torchwood/Addams Family, Jack/Ianto. Look, I would not steer you wrong. It's everything that Torchwood is in it's craziness and everything that the Addam's Family always has been, no matter how much we didn't know what we were watching before. It's pretty awesome.

Still Life by Jeepers, Star Trek RPS, Zach/Chris. This one is incredibly well written and sharp and sweet by turn. It's one of my favorite re-reads in the fandom.

*settles down with more fic*
