Misc. Post -

Recent friending frenzy so hi! If you ever have questions, feel free to ask! Want to get to know me? There's more than enough personal crap all through this journal *grins*. So welcome!

I've always had this problem with either Snape or Ron having a working willy unless it's in a sort of psychotic episode thing. Like - I can deal with Ron having sex if he's insane and giving it to Ginny. I can deal with angry hate!sex with Snape and Regulus.

The point is - today is READ Day and thus - I think it's now time that I might see if I can expand my horizons so......... I know I have a lot of Ron/Harry or Harry/Ron shippers on my flist. Anyone want to rec me anything? I'll leave Snape for another day.

If I haven't commented on something, you can take that to mean that I haven't read it and/or I, um, read it while sneaking out onto the internet at work and forgot to comment. So, if you've written something I haven't checked out lately, rec me?

Some things I've recently read and really enjoyed -

[livejournal.com profile] slashfest recs -

A New Sort of Security - Charlie/Linus (Yes, you read that right... Peanuts slash) It's really cute and sort of sweet. Give it a chance, I swear the boys are legal.

Messes - The Black Donnellys (Tommy/Jimmy, Jimmy/Tommy) NC-17 - battle of wills PWP and it's pretty hot.

[livejournal.com profile] serpentinelion recs -

There's Always One More Sheep Around the Corner, or A Week in Cumbria - Long and really worth reading. It's got a brilliant Harry and a fantastic Draco in it. They've both made mistakes and it's all about fixing them and sheep. Did I mention that there were sheep? There are, just in case I forgot *winks*.

Misc Recs

Finals - Bobby/Jack from Four Brothers. This isn't the best written story but the author shows promise and, well, anyone who can make Physics sexy, I'll give a chance to. It's got some fairly sexy Physics lessons in there. It's a bit schmoopy, in fact, a bit too schmoopy but the Physics lesson during sex made up for it.

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


And now, if you're still reading - I really need a Britpicker for a very long H/D. We're talking a possibility of over 20k. The fics at 13k and not close to done yet. So, um, yeah, Britpicker? Anyone? Possibly this weekend but probably more like next week sometime.

Personal stuffs -

Got my tax refunds today. For the first time in three years, Arizona didn't shaft me out of my tax refund. So, I have a nice chunk of change that is going to my mum to pay for stuff for the new house. I get to buy one pair of new shoes with the refund and get my car fixed. Other than that, none goes to me. So, yeah, car's getting fixed this weekend, finally! YAYES for new coolant systems!

My mum took me for a drink after work because I had a shitty dickwad call me about an hour before I was due to leave work. Fucker thinks that he doesn't have to pay almost 300 bucks in services because it's over 90 days. To which, I basically said you have until a certain date and then fuck you, you're ass is being charged with fraud. Asswipe had me so mad that I was shaking. So, yeah, mum took me for a drink and I got to bitch and moan to her for awhile.

Speaking of bitching and moaning... went to talk to peeps at the design school and that isn't going to work out. The program is 45k for 3 years and the increase in pay before taxes is only like 4-10k so it would take me almost 10 years to pay off the student loans just for that part of them. So, yeah, um, not worth the money.

I have an appointment at University of Arizona in their PoliSci program to get back into that and see about a combined PoliSci/Social Services degree and see if I can work for a battered childrens/women center. I've been volunteering off and on with one here in Tucson and I enjoy it. Eventually, I think it'd be nifty to lobby in DC for that sort of thing. But, still gathering information and maybe, by the time I'm 50, I'll figure out what I want to be when I grow up. As it is, if I go back to UA, my credits all stay active and I don't lose any. In addition, I get in state tuition and it's loads less money. So, meh, IDK, we'll see about the whole school thing.

On Monday, I have my first day off of work since, um, well, wow, since Christmas (which shouldn't count as you never get to do what you want on Christmas) and then Thanksgiving (again, shouldn't count). So um, yeah, I'm finally taking a day off. I'm going to be meeting up with [livejournal.com profile] wendy for loads of fun and margaritas. And possibly Mark Wahlberg shirtless and larger than life. And possibly new shoes. I'm psyched BEYOND psyched. This is going to be so much fun.

Speaking of Arizona meet-ups... anyone in AZ interested in doing an "HP in AZ" sort of thing? Is there something for this already? I've been talking to a fellow AZ resident and we thought it'd be awesome to get a group together to hang out. What do you think? Know anyone in AZ that might be interested? I'd be willing to organize the first get together and/or get a comm set up to really get people in one spot.

Hi! Sorry about the design school, bleah. But it does seem like it's not a good thing for you. Sigh.

Crap, I have to file my taxes. They are pretty much done, but since I owe I was delaying as long as possible. But that's a good thing that you can get your car fixed. :D

Didn't know Wendy was going to be there! How cool! Have fun!!!

I'm so sleepy now and I'm alternating between sad and hyper. Weird.

[livejournal.com profile] shocolate is the Queen of Harry/Ron. Her fic journal is [livejournal.com profile] shocfix, if you want to look around!

I wrote a Harry/Ron once: A Favour Between Friends. It's NC-17 and quite fluffy.

Now, if you feel like trying Ron/Neville, I can point you to some really good fics there, most of them by [livejournal.com profile] emiime!

I've made a note of all of those and ron/neville? Sure!!!! I love Neville! (not as much as you, of course, but I do love Neville).

What sort of Harry/Ron do you want to read? There are several I can think of that are just outstanding, many that are fun, many that are angsty but have hope... etc...

Or, there's always crack!fic that steals shamelessly from Monty Python... :P

From: [identity profile] wook77.livejournal.com
Um, oustanding is good. Monty Python is bad. I think I'm one of the four people in the world that don't like Monty Python.

Angsty with hope is good :)

Okay, then we'll go with outstanding and no MP. ;)

harry/ron recs:

get there faster by [livejournal.com profile] hesychasm

*this probably remains my favorite Harry/Ron fic, because it really explores the angst and anguish following (and during) OotP. It took me months to leave feedback for this one. It breaks me every time I read it.

close enough by [livejournal.com profile] helenish

This is rec'ed up and down and around and with good reason. There's best friend fucking and angst and a whole lot of mess here, but mess with hope.

the best of my love by [livejournal.com profile] kerryblaze

sparsely written and beautiful.

Medic by [livejournal.com profile] rosina_alcona

This just grabs you and doesn't let go until the end.

princes of maine by [livejournal.com profile] scoradh

Very long story -- all about Ron helping Harry though things, even after Harry abandons everyone.

excorcism by [livejournal.com profile] cluegirl

This killed me when I first read it, and killed me again just now when I reread. Outstanding look at the effects of the brains on Ron from the DoM in OotP. Intense, scary and awesome.

mirrors by [livejournal.com profile] shocolate

Funny and sweet. She wrote this for me in hpvalensmut years ago -- and it's just awesome -- and with a bit of Seamus/Dean at the end too!

and one by me. a bunch of people have seemed to like it. lines It's still got a bit of angst, but mostly Ron is just sweet here. And with a cameo by the other Gryff boys, too.

Yep, yep, a get together sounds fun. The Knight Bus is going to be in Phoenix on July 3 - I'm so going :D

First of all - my mind boggles that you could sexually equate Ron and Snape - Ron is the sexiest creature! especially when he's writhing under or over Harry

[livejournal.com profile] harry_and_ron is a very active comm. Particularly look for things written by [livejournal.com profile] shocolate, [livejournal.com profile] solstice_muse, [livejournal.com profile] magicofisis, [livejournal.com profile] abigail89, [livejournal.com profile] kerryblaze, and ah, er, myself. :D
(Also notable are [livejournal.com profile] thrihyrne and [livejournal.com profile] kaalee, but they write less often, but when they do, it phenomenal!)

[okay, that looks like a weird list, but it would have looked really snotty to say 'avoid reading stories by XYZ' but if you read what some people write, you'd be turned off of the ship forever, but it's not the ship's fault some people write ooky stuff, you know?]

Here is a list of the nominated stories for [livejournal.com profile] bestmatesawards for 2006. They are really good!

I will check out all of them! Thanks so much!!!!

I've just read my first one. *grins*

I've never written Harry/Ron, or read it. *mulls it over* Hehe. Maybe I should start - I enjoy expanding my horizons. ;) I've written a Harry/Draco thing a few days a ago. It's a few entries down on my LJ.

Sorry about the design school. :( University/college prices suck monkey balls. I mean, why can't the education be free, like in Switzerland and other countries in Europe? I bet we'd have less crime and shit.

Blah. Taxes sucks. I've never had to deal with them, personally... *is a baby* ;) I studied them, though.. Agh, well, I'm not looking forward to them.

Your H/D is seriously on my bookmarked "to read" list, I swear.

Taxes aren't bad when you get money back. I just overpay and act like I'm not. It's an enforced savings account, to me.

Oh, sorry!! I forgot I told you about my fic already. -_-0 I don't mean to come off as annoying. :(

Would Ron/Draco be of interest?

Fucker thinks that he doesn't have to pay almost 300 bucks in services because it's over 90 days. To which, I basically said you have until a certain date and then fuck you, you're ass is being charged with fraud.
that...I have no words. I boggle at the uselessness of the world sometimes.

Sure, link me to the ron/draco as well. Might as well break all the ron and willy problems all at once *grins*.

Yeah, this guy doesn't get that what he did was wrong. He thinks that we're just going to be alright with him trying to take us for a ride. What an asshole. He hasn't called my supervisor as he threatened to do and I say, go for it, my supervisor has my back, mkthx!

(my Ron/Draco fic)

hmmm...I can't locate any of my links for some reason. I'll look them up tomorrow. A program I've been working on is likely going to get canceled tomorrow, and after all the overtime I've put in, I feel the need to not work.
