Because I haven't posted anything in ages

Checking the dates it's been nearly a month since I posted anything. I think that might be some sort of record for me. /o\ I've been busy with stuff (some of it fandom focused) and, to be honest, I haven't really had anything to post about (this hellatus is taking forever!).

Yesterday I had a day off due to a rotten cold and I FINALLY had a chance to catch up on some fic 'n general LJ stuff. So I have a few recs. :)

See my new icon? How gorgeous is that?! It's by dephigravity and it's part of the wonderful artwork to the equally wonderful fic, Refracted by dugindeep. This is such a tender, delicately handled story and if you haven't read it I urge you to do so now. The art is a perfect match to the story.

I always love zubeneschamali's work and I finally had a chance to read her latest story Astatine. Wow. I suppose I don't really need to say how amazing her world-building is because I'm sure you already know that (and if you don't perhaps you've been living under a rock or something..;D). This is a wonderful continuation of her first story in this 'verse, Palladium. Her observations about the human race are spot on, and the characters are fab.

While I'm here I can't neglect to mention deirdre_c's glorious fic The Heart Must Yield. SO MUCH LOVE for this story. Dei creates a rich and beautifully textured world. The characters are absolutely delightful (and so many of them!). Love love love it.

I'm sorry I haven't been very articulate with this recs. My head is still a bit fuzzy (well, that's my excuse anyway).

Hope you're all doing well.
