First dive into the archive today! :D (Still not returning to Yuletide writing, but devouring all the fic remains one of my favorite things about this time of year.) Kicking things off with my year's-end nostalgia fandoms, by which I mean (for now, at least) the stuff still withstanding my Arthurian-legend burnout: The Dark is Rising* and GGK - someone wrote Fionavar this year! And Kim/Dave, no less. (I always get a kick out of seeing GGK fic written by NOT ME, as I don't really know other people who have written multiple GGK stories, lol.)

*Favorite of the lot: Wherein was bound a child, because... well. Because. asdkfja;sldkgj *_________* ♥

So excited to see Riddle-master fic this year omg!! McKillip's trilogy is one of my oldest favorites, and Like Petals from the Bough is basically heart-exploding.

Also, this year I can appreciate Georgette Heyer! Like this Inconvenient Marriage one: Inconvenience- a perfect non-textual love-triangle resolution if there ever was one, hah. And this Devil's Cub one: a thing with feathers- a modern AU that works surprisingly, hilariously, well.

And Bel Dame Apocrypha fic: The Ending is the Same Every Damn Time - Rhys/Nyx, pretty much the way I'm convinced that would go.

And Matrix fic! Ahh, I never realized I needed a fic like Parking in places with girls until I read it. Dorky Neo and awkward Trinity!! Heee. ♥

Also, Queen's Thief, eeeee :D for sins and false alarms is a great look at Gen's attendants, and you got me begging, begging, i'm on my knees is... exactly what it sounds like, heh.

Also excited to see a bunch of stories for Captive Prince and the Imperial Radch! And Gangsta. fic, which reminds me that I mean to read it at some point when I actually have time to spare... And good lord, 57 Hamilton stories (59 if you count the RPF)?! I haven't watched the show or really been particularly tempted to do so, despite my general appreciation for Lin-Manuel Miranda, but at this point I might just have to.

I opened up a new multifandom drabblefest yesterday, and in a fit of tired, managed to access-lock it. D'oh! (It is unlocked now, obviously.) But in case you guys are interested, that is what I plan to do today, along with poking about at [personal profile] dhobikikutti's review of GGK's Under Heaven. My own thoughts on it are still not exactly coherent, or at least not enough to have a go at blogging it right now.

In other news, [livejournal.com profile] imaginarybeasts Book 22: Oceans and Seas is up, for those of you interested in original fic! I have already blown through everything; it made for a rather satisfying hour. :)
glass_icarus: (fireworks heart)
Finishing GGK's Under Heaven + brunch of fandom funtimes + World Cup watching* + new phone** + devouring Dragon Soul in two hours = DAY OF EPIC WIN!

(I think I'll need to reread for proper commentary on Under Heaven as I read it in seven random trips to Borders as opposed to all at once. As to Dragon Soul... JAIDANI, AAADSJ:DLKFJS:LDGKHSDF!!!! Hello again, incoherency~ &hearts &hearts)

Real book-blog post tomorrow! Hopefully. :D

*SO MANY GIFS/MACROS TO BE MADE OF TODAY'S FOOTAGE. WHERE ARE THEY??? Also, awesome peeps I was hanging with today: you may be interested to know that on my way to the subway station, I saw not one guy wearing a flag, but three. Dressed up as knights, even!

**Phone only, not the number. Also I switched to TMobile (woe(?)), but that is barely even a sour note in my current state: which is to say, wallowing in UTTER GLEE.
