8th-Aug-2011 01:28 am - Recs: Naruto! Mind-numbingly beautiful Naruto!
Since I feel about as confident in myself as an adult does in the permanence of a sandcastle built upon the moats of an ocean*, it's a great time for recs! And to acknowledge that I will never enter an active fandom, ever! 8D

Naruto recs

Telephone: Kaka/Iru, but the genius is in Team 7.
White Wedding Gaara/Naruto, with much Kaka/Iru hilarity.

Both by rageprufrock.

I'm sure I don't need to sing rageprufrock's praises, but read these two fics. They'll pick your day up, shake them up, and leave you with a huge, ridiculous smile on your face afterwards.

In Bond and Blood by thehoyden

I'd just rec everything by thehoyden, but this one is a nice, meaty read that errs on just the right side of light-hearted and the left side of thoughtful to make me a happy pile of contented K.


We Might As Well Dance by megyal

One wonderful thing about animes like Naruto is that they seem to produce the crackiest, most wonderfully apt AUs. Kakashi's dogs, Iruka-the-vet, just add water.

  • While bureaucracy is very fun to write fic about, waiting 3 hours for a 2 minute interview at the American Embassy is not. D:
  • Discussing the philosophy of mathematics is a bit like a snake trying to eat it's own tail. *insert FMA reference here*
  • Retail therapy sort of fixes everything
  • On my to-read list:

    [x] Haruki Murakami - After Dark
    [x] Neil Gaiman - Coraline (WHY YES I AM SLOW ON THE UPTAKE)
    [] Homer - The Iliad books 12-24
    [] John Steinbeck - East of Eden
  • On my to-procure list:

    [] Terry Pratchett - Nation
  • On my to-complain list:

    [] Boss being unbearable
    [] Quitting now moving up on list of priorities


And, for fandom exercising, DIALOGUE MEME - comment with a character, a situation, a prompt, and I'll write you a one-line bit of dialogue! Feel free to PARRY/BANTER/COUNTER BACK. :D TARGET THE FOLLOWING FANDOMS FOR EXTRA POINTS: Discworld's Moist and Lu Tze books, Lucifer.

[edit] ALSO, everyone should go read today's xkcd, and then Wiki Erdos number, and THEN wiki Erdos-Bacon numbers (as in, Kevin-Bacon-the-actor Bacon), because that article is hilarious for the following paragraph:

The only ways a lower [Erdos-Bacon] number could be achieved would be: )

Also, the new Fullmetal Alchemist:

This is why I put off watching it for so long:

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

*rocks back and forth* I KNEW IT WAS GOING TO HURT ME, I KNEW HUGHES WOULD TAKE MY HEART AND STOMP ALL OVER IT LIKE IT WAS NOTHING; I KNEW THAT WATCHING HIM AND ROY AND GRACIA AND ELYSIA WAS GOING TO HURT; I KNEW THAT ED WAS GOING TO MAKE ME MENTALLY EXPLODE; I KNEW THAT IN SPITE OF LOVING OKAWA TORU FOREVER THAT MIKI SHIN WAS GOING TO TAKE ROY AND DEVELOP A FACET OF HIM THAT MAKES ME WANT HIS ROY AND OKAWA'S ROY TO BE IN THE SAME ROOM VIOLENTLY MAKING OUT AND AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAUGH
