take it off.

This post on Pete Wentz's blog pretty much sums up my life for the last week. I quit my job last Sunday1, and since then I cannot be persuaded to leave the house with a cattleprod. What's that, we need groceries? Call Pink Dot. Son needs a ride home from the mall? Take the bus. Friends are going to the movies? I'll wait for the DVD.

Since I have you here, allow me to recommend some things I read/looked at this morning:

A Trinket, A Trifle by [personal profile] thistlerose. [Hunger Games; Effie Trinket, Mrs. Everdeen, gen]

This is very well done. It nicely explores one of my pet theories about Effie -- that over the years, she eventually began to realize that the Games were wrong on some level, maybe because losing her tributes every year started to wear her down, but she chose not to examine it too closely, because it was easier that way, because she was from the Capitol and so much of her daily life was tied up in the Games.

This also manages to make Mrs. Everdeen slightly sympathetic, something I'd never thought I'd say in a million years.

Denude by [personal profile] faithwood. [Harry Potter; Harry/Draco, adult]

Everything about this is delightful -- the atmosphere, the imagery, the different things and ideas that turn Harry on, the whole idea that their mutual obsession is a naked, obvious thing reaching an inevitable conclusion.

Also, smoking hot.

And now for some art -- all Harry Potter, and all distressingly work safe.

Concealed by [personal profile] achen089. [Sirius]

This House is Not a Home by [personal profile] viria13 [Sirius]

Lupin by [personal profile] ullakko. [Remus]

The Marauders by [personal profile] jackpot-84 [Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, Prongs]

Spinner's End by [personal profile] ullakko. [Snape, Bellatrix, Narcissa]

I also found this gorgeous piece of Harry/Draco art on the fuckyeah-harrypotterfanart Tumblr, but I can't figure out who drew it because of reblog drift. Alas. [ETA:] [personal profile] faithwood to the rescue! It's an older piece by [livejournal.com profile] reallycorking -- which, yeah. I should've know, based on how pretty it is.

So, my [personal profile] hp_beholder fic hates me like I murdered its mother in cold blood.

Speaking of the Hunger Games, where is all the Haymitch/Effie fic? Seriously. I'd read the hell out of that.

I was telling [personal profile] themostepotente on the phone last night that I'd also read the hell out of some Robert Baratheon/Ned Stark, set right after Robert wins the Iron Throne, and Robert is all loud and enthusiastic about it, and Ned really is kind of into it, but admitting that wouldn't be honorable, or whatever, so on the inside he's like oh fuck, yes Robert, harder, but on the outside he's all *sigh* whatever pleases you, My Grace.


1 It's a ridiculous, super tl;dr story. Suffice to say I did everyone involved a favor, including myself.
