A short list of things  
HAPPY BIRTHDAY hogwartsvixxxen ! I hope you have a wonderful day, and thank you for all the support and brightness you bring to the world. I hope this year is better and easier for you than last!

And now, a few links across my flist.
annafugazzi  has a brilliant link that shows why George Takei is an international treasure right here.
* The ever-lovely dysonrules  has her post of anti-wank here. It is a place of much niceness!
* Filled with joy and glee about things you have read in the HP fandom that were H/D or Next Gen? Share the happy! Funky Faynia's list of all things AS/S is here.  Marvy Maggie's list of all other Next Gen and Crossover fics is here. And Brilliant Bryoney's list of H/D recs is here. While we're on the topic, can anyone point me in the direction of the best R/S?
* That stylish young artist raitala  has been hosting an extensive conversation on our experiences with being new and older in fandom. The comments are fascinating! If you have a spare half hour, take a read through here.

Must dash off to work on a beta, and the apparently Giant Instructions On Writing for the lovely gh, who knows who she is.

Yay! thanks for the snazzy pimp, Beauteous Brammers!

And only a half hour for rai's post? omg! I could spend days reading it. o.O
blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 26th, 2009 03:45 pm (UTC)
*Mwah!*

Well, I do read quite quickly, it's the job ;-)
Heather: Teddy Bearfaynia on May 26th, 2009 04:44 pm (UTC)
*tackles you sideways*THANKYOU!

I'm beginning to think all the good AS/S fics have been mentioned. What's more scary about this is that there is so much fic. How can all of it be bad? o.o

blamebramptonblamebrampton on May 26th, 2009 04:48 pm (UTC)
I think there is more to come, I know that there are at least a few that have not gone up that I know of and it is only a matter of me remembering what they actually WERE. Ah memory of extreme selectiveness ... why you would think I would need to know the legislative processes of Tanzania and not the fics I really like is not something that is clear to me ...

And it's all good, luv!

*puts on helpful hat*
i don't think there's a list like that for r/s (list you top 3 recent fics, etc), but there should be one. i might throw the idea out there... the so-called classics get all the love. *g* if you want some of those "classic" rec lists here's one, two and three.

now, if you like AUs, there's my own rec list. :p

Re: *puts on helpful hat*
*MWAH!* (And AHAHAHAHA! I have just been over leaving love at your journal ...)

Yeah, R/S is my secret love. I think I need a binge this weekend. Thanks for that!

*also dons helpful hat*
musesfool, whose rec list was recced you, is also an excellent R/S writer. She has, alas, moved on to Supernatural, but her stuff is classic. Cate does some lovely happy puppy fic. (Ridiculously cute and fluffy, but in the best way.) copperbadge / sam_storyteller's R/S fic is here in case you haven't already found it. Just to warn you, Laocoon's Children 3 languishes in WIP hell. Of course, all of these are fairly major, so you might already have seen them.

I'm pretty sure I have more tucked away on my PC (am currently on laptop) but my flatmate's parents are down there, and I don't fancy trying to explain Harry Potter fanfic to them. :o)

Re: *also dons helpful hat*
Hee! Yes, DEFINITELY avoid that conversations. Thanks for the recs, this weekend is Reading Time ;-) (And yes, Sam rocks! But the other two are new!)

Remuslives23 writes some nice Remus/Sirius. You may know her stuff, but in case not.

'It Was Only a Kiss' - Marauders-era start of r/ship, lots of nice UST, then it gets non-Ud.

Funny drabble - 'Why Sirius Black Should Never Be Allowed Near A Computer'
http://remuslives23.livejournal.com/29015.html#cutid1

Her current WIP 'Muse' is AU-muggle R/S - Remus as artist, Sirius as model.

Have a good weekend.
