Stuff and Thangs
(The Walking Dead. Rick's been doing stuff and things.)

Honest Trailers: Star Trek
(Reboot. Lens flare. Groundskeeper Willie.)

Everything Wrong with Star Trek in 5 minutes
Nit-picky at times, but funny. If you like this, you might also like Everything Wrong with The Hobbit in 4 minutes or (my favorite) Everything Wrong with Twilight in 6 minutes.

I need some help from someone (someone who is not [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt, LOL) who's relatively well versed in Sentinel canon and can help me sort out some details in a story I've been working on. Please? I promise I will return the favor via beta-ing or whatever else you might like.

32. The Walking Dead Book 8 by Robert Kirkman & Charlie Adlard. Very good, though I'm starting to think it won't be the end of the world (ha!) if this series doesn't go on forever. Found out Kirkman also wrote some kind of superhero comic called Invincible - has anyone read it?

33. The Ice Cradle: A Novel of the Ghost Files by Mary Ann Winkowski & Maureen Foley. Bought this at a secondhand store. Surprisingly good and totally worth the $7 I paid for it. Will look for others in the series.

34. Penpal by Dathan Auerbach. Ehhhhh. It was okay. I enjoyed reading it for the most part but the big reveal at the end was meh.

35. Ace of Cakes by Duff Goldman and Willie Goldman. Fun, lots of cool photos.
wesleysgirl: (Mornings)
The sound of my cat licking his own junk IN THE NEXT ROOM is so loud that I just had to turn up the volume on the TV to cover it up. OMG.

Wanted to wish a very happy birthday to the lovely and supportive [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt.

Click for fun! )

Wishing you the most wonderful of birthdays!

(Also, I am totally writing you birthday fic, but am only halfway done. *Sheepish grin*)

29. This Book is Full of Spiders - Seriously, Dude, Don't Touch It by David Wong. Didn't realize until I started reading this that it's actually the sequel to John Dies At the End but it didn't matter all that much. Awesome, so funny, fantastic, loved it, will definitely read the prequel.

30. In One Person by John Irving. I find that I either adore John Irving's books or feel sort of meh about them. This one was a meh. There were things about it I really liked, but overall I felt that there was too much focus on the characters I didn't care for and not enough on the ones I was intrigued by.

31. My Two Moms: Lessons of Love, Strength, and What Makes a Family by Zach Wahls. Eh. Didn't find it to be all that well-written - I wish it had been more strongly edited - but it was pretty much what I expected it to be.

Supernatural, Dean/Sam. Worth the Effort

3156 words

For my Trope_Bingo card.

Trope: Virginfic/Secretly a Virgin

Huge amounts of thanks to Verucasalt123 for the beta.
wesleysgirl: (Supernatural3)
Dean/Sam for Trope_Bingo. 3200 words, NC-17, pretty much pure porn. Could anyone take a look at it for me?
wesleysgirl: (Default)
Fear is the Heart of Love
3068 words.

Immediately post "The Great Game."

For my Trope_Bingo card.
Trope: Sharing a Bed.
Ridiculous amounts of thanks to maggie_conagher for the beta.
wesleysgirl: (Sherlock blanket)
Is anyone available to do a fairly quick beta (ideally tonight or even within the next few days) on a short Sherlock story? Goes AU at the end of S1 so not particularly spoilery. 3,000-ish words, pre-slash, just a little kissing.

24. Made from Scratch: Discovering the Pleasures of a Handmade Life by Jenna Woginrich. Awesome except that it made me think I want chickens, which I probably don't. But a great read!

25. The Love Letter: A Novel by Cathleen Schine. Basically, this book was awesome. :-)

26. The Gaslight Effect: How to Spot and Survive the Hidden Manipulation Others Use to Control Your Life by Dr. Robin Stern. Interesting.

27. Otherwise Engaged by Sherry Ashworth. Re-read, still like it.

28. Sister of Silence by Daleen Berry. Good. Many warnings for triggers, please look it up or ask if you want more info.
wesleysgirl: (Default)
21. The Walking Dead Book 7 by Robert Kirkman. Still so good. Waiting for Book 8 from the library.

22. Among Others by Jo Walton. Hard to describe, but great.

23. The Year of the Lucy by Anne McCaffrey. Okay, but I still like The Lady much more. Probably because there are horses.
wesleysgirl: (Rodney)
Likely Outcome
4777 words.

AU of SGA S4 ep 15 "Outcast."

Many thanks to Bethynyc for the beta. All unaccompanied dashes are my own. :-)

For my Trope_Bingo card. Trope: Secret Twin/Doppelganger.

18. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson. GORGEOUS. But exceedingly triggery for self-harm, suicide and eating disorders, so please do some checking first. Amazingly written.

19. The Paternity Test by Michael Lowenthal. Good, but not what I thought it was going to be, and definitely not a happy ending, which bummed me out.

20. Blankets by Craig Thompson. I guess this is the point where I stop saying I'm not a graphic novel person. SO GOOD.

Now available from Torquere Press:
Trace Evidence
by Alexa Snow

This is a novella that was originally published in the anthology To Serve and Protect. The anthology is no longer available but anyone who missed it can now read this story on its own. People who read the Ghost trilogy co-written by Alexa Snow and Jane Davitt will recognize one of the secondary characters.

And look at the beautiful cover by Brandon Clay!

Mitch is a police detective with a life that should be smooth sailing; unfortunately, his boyfriend is getting on his nerves, he has a murder to solve, and he has a mysterious stranger telling him details no one but the killer could know. Can Mitch make sense of the chaos before the killer chooses another victim?

The 10 Least Competent Time Travelers.

Hey, it's late, I'm tired, I don't have any donuts, and I'm trying not to go back and play fucking Candy Crush Saga on fucking Facebook again. If this is what makes me laugh, I'm keeping it!
wesleysgirl: (Spike/Wes)
Is anyone watching Continuum? If you've seen it, thumbs up or down?
wesleysgirl: (Default)
This is a list of things I'm kind of obsessing about that are:

Cool! - Diamond Candles. You buy a soy candle, and you burn it, and there's a ring inside! It's like the adult woman's version of Cracker Jack.

Useful! - Pepperplate. Website (and app) so that you can organize and store all your recipes. You can directly import recipes from some of the bigger recipe websites. I am constantly bookmarking recipes to the point where the links are taking over my browser; this site seems particularly brilliant to me.

Funny! - Nerd³ Plays: Surgeon Simulator 2013. I have no idea why I think this is so funny, but it makes me laugh so much when I watch it. If you're sensitive to surgery related stuff, I think this might be problematic for you, but it's very, very unrealistic -- think "Operation" the board game level of realism.

15. Chronicles of Downton Abbey: A New Era by Jessica Fellowes & Matthew Sturgis. Very cool (though not really much in the way of new information.) Nice photos though!

16. Welfare Brat: A Memoir by Mary Childers. A fairly quick and enjoyable read. Even though some of the subject matter is upsetting/depressing, the author did a good job not making it overly so.

17. When the Mirror Lies: Anorexia, Bulimia, and Other Eating Disorders by Tamra B. Orr. I saw this recommended somewhere (I know, I might as well type that after every title, LOL) but didn't realize when I requested it from the library system that it's a Young Adult book. I read some YA books but usually they're fiction. This was nicely written and had a lot of great info though.
wesleysgirl: (Sheppard)
I don't know if there's canon on this, so if there is that would be awesome, but: John Sheppard likes turkey sandwiches. Mayo? Mustard? Does he like cheese? These are the important things on my mind tonight. :-P
