I accidentally took a really long nap in the middle of the afternoon, and now I can't sleep UGH.

I've got about seven tabs open at the You Win or You Die Kink Meme. Specifically, I've been eyeballing this fantastic Jon/Robb/Jeyne prompt. I haven't started on it yet, mainly because in my head it's the kind of shameless filth that could strip the paint off the walls, and I just can't write that kind of stuff when everyone else in this house is awake. My mother (in particular) seems to know somehow, and will choose that moment to stand in my doorway and talk about the laundry for twenty minutes.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I haven't seen the new episode yet. I talked to [personal profile] themostepotente on the phone right after she watched it, and she told me it was short on a lot of the things I'm particularly keen on -- no Robb, no Catelyn, very little Jon and Sam. I spent some of today reading other people's write ups about it, and I've gathered two things; Gwendoline Christie is an utterly flawless Brienne, and the Theon bits will probably hurt large portions of my soul.

in which i talk about my boyfriend theon greyjoy, to absolutely no one's surprise, i'm pretty sure. also, long opinions are long )

I told you long opinions are long. WTF, BRAIN.


In other news, I finally finished my Remix. Just under the wire, and I managed to crank out something I'm actually happy with. I'm pretty sure that obvious anonymous fic will be obvious, but my general state of anonfail at fic exchanges is a chronic condition.

If you missed Remix signups and would still like to participate, check out the opt-in post for Remix Madness.

Also, if you've friended me on Pottermore, drop me a comment and let me know who you are, so I can get nicknames sorted.

recs post!

The Win by [personal profile] viria13 [James/Lily]

Look at Me by [personal profile] nami86 [Snape, Lily, Harry]

Hunger Games

Good and Safe by [personal profile] whatever_lu [Katniss, Rue]

Katniss by [personal profile] raviolillama [Katniss]

A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones1

Lannister Gold by [personal profile] arkoniel [Jaime/Cersei]

Rhaegar and Lyanna by [personal profile] arkoniel [Rhaegar/Lyanna]

Lyanna Stark by [personal profile] riavel [Lyanna]

Robb Stark by [personal profile] thephoenixprod [Robb]

King in the North by [personal profile] riavel [Robb]

Ygritte by [personal profile] lilyhbp [Ygritte]

Ygritte by [personal profile] riavel [Ygritte]

Jon + Ygritte by [personal profile] monizc [Jon/Ygritte]

You Know Nothing, Jon Snow by [personal profile] marinelli [Jon/Ygritte]

My ASoiaF shipping tendencies are really in display in this one -- Jaime/Cersei and Rhaegar/Lyanna are probably in my top five. As far as Jon goes, I ship Jon/Robb pretty hard, and I also like Jon/Sam2, but I love, love, love Jon/Ygritte. She was probably one of my favorite characters in ASoS, and by the time that book was over, I desperately wanted to read/write an AU where they went looking for Grendel's children instead of leaving that cave.

cut for more A Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones waffle, complete with Jon Snow meaderings, totally batshit Targaryen theorizing, and also some potentially spoilerish stuff for A Dance with Dragons )

1 I stole the first two from [personal profile] themostepotente, but they are so utterly gorgeous I figured they deserved a second look.
2 I really think I'm a Fandom of One with this pairing, but I don't care. My love for these two is pure.
3 Ironic, I guess, since his grandmother was a Targaryen.
