way too happy, poing!

Pretty delighted by this card. I expect to be writing BBC Sherlock fic for most or all of it, since that's how I roll these days, although I'm kind of amused by "poor communication skills." That's, like, every Sherlock fic, ya'll.

ink reads magic's price, part ii

Aiite, I know it's been a while, but work was super cray. Like, I have so much OT racked up, you don't even know.

That's not important, though. What's important is that we're finally gonna find out how this all goes down.

(BTW, idk if I ever thanked ladyofthelog for making a trip to my house to, like, give me some books. That was really awesome.)

A link to part one, if you want to refresh your memory.

dear diary, plotting world destruction

ink reads magic's price, part i

Aaaaannndd we're back! This is taking a little longer because 1) this book is actually a bit longer than the others and 2) I actually misplaced the book at one point. But I found it! And read some more of it! And let me tell you, this book is gold. In fact, there's so much good stuff here that I decided to break it into two parts, just so I don't have to leave anything out.

I just discovered that my library doesn't have a copy of Book Three of the Last Herald-Mage Trilogy at all! The first two books, but not the last one! CUUURRRSSEEEESSS welp better start searching the used bookstores.

Also, Book Three apparently won a Lambda Literary Award? Huh. Who knew.
gayest costume ever wtf

insert witty subject line here

So I've been going to the library a lot and reading a lot of really good prizewinning literature, stuff like The Book Thief by Michael Zusak and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon and it was all great but also really heavy. So then I decided that I really needed a break from all this heavy and prizewinning literature, and then call_me_ishmael suggested that I read The Last Herald-Mage trilogy, by Mercedes Lackey. Because I have very little good sense, I thought that this seemed like a great idea.

So this is your fault, call_me_ishmael.
