Day 5

In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.

Okay, this is going to get long and probably take me forever, because I don't make things easy for myself and bookmark hardly ever but here goes.

Firstly, I've been incredibly remiss to gush publicly with the bounty that has been my fest season. I know recs for gift fic are taken with a grain of salt, I mean, how could I not love something written for me specifically, right? But firstly, recs are always subjective and secondly, a fic shouldn't be punished just because it was written for me, yes?

Fics written for me, but you'll enjoy too... probably: )

Non-Gift fic From HP Fests: )

And finally, two random fics from the 1st day of the Snowflake Challenge: )

See? I told you that was going to be ridiculously long. But you know what I always say: Go Big or Go Home. (Actually never said that before in my life.) ♥

Week Two: White Collar Recs

Okay, so I just went back and checked my tags because I didn't want to rec things I've already gushed about, and was horrified to discover that I have recced very little of what I have read and loved over the years.

So, brace yourself, this is going to get ridiculous!

Shit Ton of White Collar Recs Under Here )

And holy crap that took longer than I had planned. In fact, this has taken so long, it might have to be my contribution to Caffrey/Burke Day. :( I had planned for so much more, which is sadly these days, the story of my life. *sob*

Day Six

In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

Since I'm unlocking these posts as part of the challenge, I wanted to talk about this book and movie without getting too personal, but I find I can't. So, I'll probably lock it once the challenge is over.

“When I stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, I had only two things on my mind: Paul Newman and a ride home...”  )

Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck tells the story of the Joad family as they traveled from Oklahoma to California in the midst of the Dust Bowl. It won the National Book Award and the Pulitizer Prize in 1939 and turned into a movie starring Henry Ford as Tom Joad in 1940. It is an epic, historical, sweeping American classic that tells about poverty, desperation and loss of hope.

Focus in closer and it tells the story of a family, The Joads, as they struggle to keep together when absolutely no odds are in the favor and shitty thing after another happens to them as they go from one promise of redemption to another, desperation mounting.

It’s not a happy book by any stretch. But focus even closer and it’s about one man, Tom Joad and his transformation.

haha, that writerly meme thing is pretty funny. Apparently all published writers on my Twitter--including Neil Gaiman and Margaret Atwood--write like Stephen King. o___O Actually about 80 percent of everyone I know who have taken it get King. In my writer's group 3 of them got Kurt Vonnegut. Funnily enough, I got Margaret Atwood for my latest original short story. For my Hagrid/Olympe story (Which is the only story where I don't mention names--the names always give you JK natch) I got Margaret Mitchell which made me laugh super, super hard. They are just sooooo Rhett/Scarlett dontcha think?
