fic: Let's Pretend That We're Both Counting Sheep
IDEK how this works it's been so long since I've been here or written fic (SORRY EVERYONE I know you missed me, not) - anyway, Owls wanted a specific flavour of 12/Clara and I have attempted to oblige as best I am able. Except I can't do titles anymore so I just stole a line from a Doris Day song.

Title: Let's Pretend That We're Both Counting Sheep
Rating: All Ages
Characters: Clara Oswald/Twelfth Doctor
Warnings: Spoilers I guess for Last Christmas?
Summary: In which Clara goes furniture shopping in Alpha Centauri.
A/N: Points for knowing where the supposed location of this furniture shop is totally plagiarised from.

 This is probably old news to everyone, but I'm slow...

Belated cut in case of spoiler?Collapse )

ETA: My apologies. Next time I claim to have an original thought it's safe to assume it's probably just my subconscious throwing up something I saw somewhere on tumblr.

Like a canon blast to the face
This episode reaction post may devolve into a Neil vs Neil cagematch. That's Cross vs Gaiman, of course. And you already know who's going to win.

Cut for massive Rings of Ahketen spoilers and an LD50 dose of snarkCollapse )

P.S. Apologies if the formatting doesn't work, I am trying to post this by email from the arse end of Queensland.

It said 'BYO kissing booth' on the invite
The circle of life for one-sided sheets of paper in my house: maths assignment gets written out roughly on copies of smutty fic I have beta'd, while new (ideally smutty) fic gets written out on old printouts from the maths textbook.

What is that lady doing?
 This is just a general update, just quickly because it's half an hour til bedtime and the main reason I'm finally getting around to doing this is most likely the glass and a half of wine I've drunk this evening.

Caution: If you value your time and emotional equilibrium, do not play Mass Effect 3. It will take over your life and then kick your heart out through your teeth. It takes roughly 35 hours to play through in single-player only, and then you'll have to play it through again a second time so you can do stuff differently and/or get a better grip on WTF exactly is going on. And then, as I have discovered, you may have to go back and play ME2, possibly also several times, and import your character with the right decision-base into ME3 and play it through again so that you actually get to snog the character you want to.

BRB, going to shower, clean my house, and then purchase a copy of ME2.

We will return to your regularly scheduled fandom programming a little later this week with my next three_settings reccing slot. And don't forget, if you appreciate your adult-rated Doctor Who fanfic, you too can join the comm and sign up to rec your favourites. More reccers, old and new, are always needed!

Doctor Who is a family show
The library is proving to be a treasure trove of Old Who. I was going to picspam but I'm too lazy. I was also going to do a proper reaction post for each serial but, again, too lazy. So here's the latest from the Classic Who Random Episode Catch-Up at my house...

NEXT TIME: Either Time and the Rani, The Mind Robber, or something else from the library that's not Warrior's Gate.

Signal boost: calufrax and three_settings need you!
First, a word from nonelvis, your friendly neighbourhood calufrax mod:

"You've all just been waiting for an opportunity to rec on [info]calufrax, haven't you? Well, that time has come: the comm has slots starting on March 26, open to anyone, new and old reccers alike.

All you need to do is pick four to seven of your favorite fics on Teaspoon and tell us why you love these stories. All characters, pairings, genres, eras, and ratings are welcome, as long as the stories are well-written (that is, the author should know how to spell, format and the difference between "it's" and "its") and avoid attacking any particular character or pairing in a malicious way.

If you're interested, please leave a comment on the sign-up post. (You'll need to join the comm to see that post, but membership is open.)"

[original post here]

If you've been debating whether or not to sign up to rec at calufrax - just do it! I had a great time reccing this week. And now I've popped my calufrax cherry I can absolutely give you some pointers on sifting out the Teaspoon's hidden treasures, and maintaining that elusive balance you need when reccing for a general interest comm.

Next, a word from me, on behalf of three_settings, the comm for reccing adult-rated Whoniverse fanfiction located anywhere on the web:

Sign up to rec! Sign up now! What are you waiting for? Sign up!

Also, if you haven't checked in to three_settings for a bit, head on over there now and clicky yourself some links to stick_poker's carefully curated Best of the Kinkmeme. There's some quality stuff written by anons, and three_settings is the place to find it and/or spruik it.

Fic commentary: Stray
As requested by nonelvis . I hope I'm doing it right!
