Well, my folks who have been living with us for the past month as 'homeless' people while they looked for a house are off in their RV for the week, checking out an area down south of here for potential real estate, one kid is sleeping in and another is off on a youth retreat... the house is blessedly quiet. I'll miss them, but at the same time it's nice to have a break.
A couple fic recs: I finally had a chance to just sit and read a couple fanfics last night, a luxury I've rarely had of late. We're in a mild 'Rise of the Guardians' phase here, mixed in with the usual fandoms and ff.net has some quality reads by psychicsaphie
for those so inclined. They run a touch intense, well-written and interesting. Start off with Snowbird
then carry on to The Frost Spirit and the Honey Tree
. If you're brave, go to the still-in-progress The King of Cold Mountain
, but be warned it has a nasty foe and serious cliffies.
For my fellow Three fans, PandaInTheStars
(starpanda of DbyA) has taken Jon Pertwee's love of playing vampires and crossed it over into his Doctor role - take UNIT and Three and consider how it would happen if he were still an unusual entity holing up and working for them, but for different reasons. .Blood and Tea
is also at ff.net. Everyone stays in character and the action/solve-a-mystery plottiness is good fun. She's working on a sequel as well.
