Some things I've been enjoying over the past, er... more than a month. I'm no good at that insta-rec thing some people seem to be able to do.

ST:TNG fic: New Days (G, Deanna-centric ensemble fic) by [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_llin
Post-Ethics AU. Following Worf's death, Deanna struggles with her promise to raise Alexander.

   It's rare to read a story that understands grief this well — not just the emotions, but also how families and communities reorganize themselves around the empty space where the person once was.

HP fic: Haunted (R, Lily/Sirius, Lily/James, implied Sirius/James) by [livejournal.com profile] writcraft
Dead or alive, Sirius Black has always haunted Lily.

   A beautiful and delicate look at the complexities of this triad, both before and after death.

HP art: Rat (worksafe, Padfoot) by [livejournal.com profile] akatnamedeaster
In his dreams, he always catches him in the end.

   All the more powerful for its stark simplicity.

HP silly thing: HP Quotes Taken Out of Context (worksafe) [no creator credited]

   And on a completely different note, if you need a laugh after those three rather serious fanworks, indulge your inner 12-year-old with this! If anyone needs me, I'll be on all fours in Snape's office.

While cleaning up I found this, which is a printed-out page that the lady at the front desk of the hospital gave us when we asked where the cafeteria was. I think it reads like a King's Quest walkthrough.



Directions to the Cafeteria

Go down the hall bear left at the library. At the end of the hall take a right. Go through the connector. At the end of the connector you will bear to the left again. You are now on the ground floor of the Springfield building. Continue straight down the hall till you come to the old main elevator on your right. Take the elevator to the second floor. When you get off the elevator take a left. Take another quick left go down the hall you will see the sign for the cafeteria.


(Yes, we found it.)

Hurray for a weekend visit to NYC and seeing people I hadn't in a long time, and meeting new ones! [livejournal.com profile] idlerat awesomely let us crash at her place, which made us happy.

We went to the Met where they're having an exhibit I really enjoyed of artifacts from Afghanistan's history. I didn't know anything about the region going in, but they made it clear what we were looking at and how it represented the changing eras, cultures, influences, and such. It is not boring; I was pretty riveted even though we were really tired and footsore when we were there.

We saw an extremely large hornet-or-something in Central Park. Excitement ensued! Background: I am not afraid of stinging bugs, I think bees are pretty, and I am used to Hannelore exaggerating the size and ferocity of bugs that scare her.

Hannelore: THERE IS A GIANT BUG BEHIND YOU
me: *turns to look, rolling eyes*
large hornet-or-something: HELLO I AM GIANT HOW ARE YOU DOING
us: *flee*
LHOS: WAS IT SOMETHING I SAID

Today I found out who writes the copy for those Quotable cards.

I am forced to do business with Quotable Cards, which produces those square cards (and other things) with cheesy quotations on them. The only time I actually hate Quotable is when they put things on their cards that are not actually quotations from notable people, but just rambling nonsense some copywriter made up, attributed to "unknown" or "anonymous". (This monstrosity is probably the worst offender.)

Anyway, we were discussing this one, which I guess is fairly inspirational given the source. Then [livejournal.com profile] _hannelore made a very funny observation about it. So I had to take action.

The punchline )
