How I feel about it all: indescribabletheirloveissocanon
Soundtrack: Elton John - Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me
Yes, I've been ignoring LJ. I'm sick, I'm tired, I'm a little depressed, and I had to pay a hundred bucks for new locks on my car, and this time I can't even blame ADD. My keys literally fell out of my coat pocket and into neverland. Unfortunately, the keys to the flat and the keys to work were on the ring, so bleh.

I have to work tomorrow, and I hab a code.

Oh, in other, better news, while I was hanging out not reading LJ all this time, the Marauders ate my brain. Two of them, leastwise. I've read more R/S fic than I ever have.

So. Make Primrose feel better. Rec me the best, the complete best Remus/Sirius fic you've ever read, in liek, all time. Extra points if it's novel-length and/or not sad. Especially not sad. Really, extra exra points if it's novel-length. Long!Fics R SO Cool.

Oh, and I do plan to give everyone songs who asked. I'm just slow and lazy right now.

P.S. Current music is SO R/S, no?

Hi, I'm not a weirdo, really. Just ask ironbutterfly08. Oh, and have a great day. I hope you feel better soon.

Hi! *shakes hand* Why would I think you're a weirdo?
calienteyfria at 2005-11-02 21:25 (UTC) ()
I had an odd reply to you when you asked to friend me. I always worry about scaring people. LOL.

Ah. I probably didn't get the email notification thing-y. :)

I'm an odd sort, though. I'm offended/not offended by the strangest things.

it's all about intention, baby

If I know you well enough, I can take just about anything with a grain of salt without getting offended. Unfortunately there isn't a "tone" on the internet.

I rather like doing phone posts, but since I have a deaf girl on my list, transcribing is a paaaaain in the butt. :(

Re: it's all about intention, baby

I have a deaf person on my list as well. deafscribe is very nice and you might want to meet him. :)

You might already know this one but it's one of the novel lenght R/S fics that I like to return to: Stealing Harry by copperbadge (you can find it here on sam_storyteller. It's AU but it's a lovely read :) The story is continued in Tales from the River House and Laocoon's Children. There's a lot more R/S on that LJ as well!

Then there's a gorgeous story by Setissma, called Written by Hand.

Copy of Report on Surprise Inspection of Case #14568 by Treemonisha is hilarious!

And of course there's always the shoebox_project (but that one isn't finished yet, although I do believe there's finally a true first kiss, and a second... and a third o.0) ;P

I had a longer list of recs but it appears that most of the links are broken :( Hope this cheers you up a little at any rate!

Take care & get well soon,

I have no fics to offer (this will come as no surprise, right?). However, I am good for new songage, because nothing cheers me up like new tunes. (Okay, except Elijah Wood.) So I bring to you, with all happy wishes, "Fiddle and the Drum", remade from Joni Mitchell's original by A Perfect Circle.

Me too. :) I tend to play it over and over and over and over and over and over and over......

It's not a story...

...but I can recommend a good movie when you're feeling up to it. See "Jarhead". I knew a *lot* of guys that were in the first Gulf War (hey, I married one). Most were in the Army, and while those in the movie were obviously Marines, their experiences were much the same. Months of mind boggling boredom punctuated by a few moments of action and abject terror (remember scuds, anyone?). After seeing the movie, I went home and read through some of the letters I received from the guys (to my hubby's dismay, I saved them all. Felt I owed it to them in a weird way). Describing a typical day, one said, "It sucks. Your (sic) bored 16 hours out of the day and then you sleep for 8." Another guy said, "I will say this: I can't wait to get home and have someone say they live "in the middle of nowhere". I'll look at them and say "Bullshit! I've been there and I didn't see you anywhere." That guy goes on to say that it had been ten days since he'd had a shower and the only way to wash daily was using "Wet Ones".

Anyway, a great movie. Non political, thank God. Just shows it from the grunt's point of view.

Re: It's not a story...

I've heard this was good. Violent, though. I sort of wanted to read the book first, but I probably won't get to.

Re: It's not a story...

Nah, it's not overly violent. In fact, there is hardly *any* violence, given the fact that most of these guys (and gals) just sat around for months doing nothing. The most gruesome bit was as they walked down the "highway of death" (the highway between Kuwait & Iraq that we bombed as the Iraqi army was skeedadling out of Kuwait). Otherwise, there are LOTS of references (overt and otherwise) to masturbation, which I'd rather have than violence, given the choice.
