Icon Appreciation

The other day when I was looking at my icons, this one showed up blank. Today I noticed it was back and decided to post with it just because.

It's also appropriate because I have a paper to edit tonight, but my brain is full of fic thoughts. Although I don't have any research or panic planned for the evening.

Micro-reviews

Books I've read lately:

Princess Academy by Shannon Hale -- fun.

(I did say "micro" for a reason.)

Keys to the Kingdom series by Garth Nix -- No detailed spoilers, but might count as hints. )

A Wonderfully Hallucinogenic Gas

Title: A Wonderfully Hallucinogenic Gas
Warnings: Injury, angst, altered mental state?
Summary: While Klaus lies next to the chicken clank, Countess Marie has released her hallucinogens, and everybody is shouting about the Heterodynes' return.
Author's note: Dimo later mentions to Agatha that he gave the Baron first aid; these efforts are responsible for some of Klaus's perceptions here. I do not intend him to have been actively impersonating Bill Heterodyne at the time. Klaus is just really, really out of it. (And less intelligible than he imagines.)

The Heterodynes are back! )

Happy New Year!

Given my infrequent posting, the year-in-review LJ memes might not be terribly interesting, so I'm just going to wave hello to everybody.

I am still doing research IRL, writing fanfic periodically, and my updates are likely to continue ranging from haphazard to nonexistent. At some point I may or may not switch my username over to Schefflera.

Anyway, hello everybody, and may 2013 be a good year for us all.

DVD Commentaries meme

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

--Actually, I don't watch that many DVD commentaries, so who knows what you'll actually get. *g*
