I'm off sick from work. My brain is all fuzzled and my throat is like razor wire. So for some reason best known to myself I've posted a fic.

Title: Nevertheless (Despite Their Sins)
Fandom: Harry Potter
Ship: Gen
Summary: Post-War. Hermione travels to Australia to face up to what she has done.

Disclaimer: I don't own them. I don't even know what my brain is thinking at the moment beyong 'oh gosh, my throat hurts' and 'I feel dizzy and worried about work'. Also the title is from the Jake Thackray Song 'Family Tree'. Just because awesome.

Soo

I'm a Ravenclaw on Pottermore.

I'm still in shock. Also judging by my gaming skills I may be the most useless Ravenclaw ever.

(Well, it was always going to be between Slytherin and Ravenclaw. Apparently academia won over ego. Who knew?)

As I continue to work on the Archive of Our Own Fic meme designed by [personal profile] ruuger one of the parts is to:

"Make a rec post in your journal with all the good fic you found while doing this meme, and then maybe link that post to the comments here so that others can enjoy the recs as well "


So here we go. (cuts for length)

Fandom: Harry Potter )

Fandom: BBC!Sherlock )

Fandom:LoTR )

Fandom:X-Men First Class )

So there are my recs so far. They are all brilliant, fantastic, wonderful, interesting, fascinating and fun so do go and read & comment/give kudos!

Awesomely chilled-out day today. I didn't go out shopping (huzzah!) instead rebelled by staying home, taking the opportunity to wrap mum's birthday present and hoover through the house.

I also may have killed the vacuum cleaner in the process. But I will insist that all I did was turn it on- the fact that two seconds later there was the smell of burning plastic and the room was full of smoke is DEFINITELY not my fault. So there.

I also received my invitation for my account on Archive of Our Own. You can find me there as, ever, your localfreak. I've only put three stories up so far- two that are already posted on my List of Fanfiction on my blog and one I hadn't got around to posting yet. All of them have been tidied up a bit since, too, with any belated errors fixed etc.

It's all part of my drive to be at least marginally more active in making friends online. It just seems ridiculous that I've been in fandom for over ten years and yet I still suck quite so much at making (and keeping) friends. I'm trying to be a bit more sociable.

I chose Archive Of Our own only after several months contemplation. It may not be the biggest or most popular, but it has a lot going for it. I like the large font (even if, when worried about people reading over your shoulder, it can sometimes seem Rather Too Large), and I rather likethe tagging system that makes crossovers so easy to find, and the fact you can filter by wordcount > is just quite awesomely useful. I weighed up the pros and cons against other fic archive sites I use, and really it just wins hands down.

So yes.

I did mean, after sorting all of that, to get back to my editing software and put some hours in on the video I'm making. But I may, perhaps, have got distracted once again by awesome X-Men fanfic. If I have anything to thank X-Men: First Class for (apart from being adorably awesome) it is that since people have started to produce good X-Men fic. When I first got into fandom there were perhaps three non-crack X-Men fics that were any good that I could find. The rest was mis-spelled, stomach churning, or just didn't appeal to me in anyway. (There are only so many times Gambit can be turned into a woobie helpless pwincess before you start to cringe inside.)
