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.

And I hope you feel better soon. Take care :)

And thank you. <3

Awww. Thank you so much, lovely girl. This is the best of recs!

I never post anymore myself, and having just got back from a massive vacation, I should probably do an update. Why can't there be more than 24 hours in a day?? :P

Why can't there indeed?! And with twitter being so easy, I've been tending to forget to put stuff here these days.

Would love to hear about you holiday. :))

I have been down with a cold this past week as well. It's ebbing, but ugh :/

Thanks for the recs! I agree about the artwork, wonderful stuff. I downloaded the two that were available on AO3 -- thank heavens so many BB stories have ended up there.

Ugh indeed. Mine is ebbing now too.

I love being able to DL the fic now. It's great so many are on AO3. :))

Boo to your cold and hope you are shaking it off. (How very Taylor Swift of you....)

I loved Astatine (had to re-read Palladium first too of course, what a hardship!) - so much fic and so little time!
23rd-Aug-2015 10:52 am (UTC)
haha! Yes, I am shaking it off! :)

So much fic, so little time indeed. It drives me nuts! It's been nice to actually have a chance to catch up a bit.

Hope you feel better soon bb! Missed you!

Thanks hun! I've been checking LJ but I seem to always be in a rush when I do. And posting has been non existent. Hoping that will change with a little post I am preparing. :)

Owww, interesting :D *rubs hands with glee* Never feel bad about not being around though honey, we all get a little bogged down, or need time away from lj! *hugs*

Awwww, thank you honey. I'm on the mend. Glad it ended up being a nasty cold rather than the flu. ;)
