Filthy enablers quickreaver and dephigravity are to blame, and get to pick my first two squares (if they so desire). I think I will probably mostly art if I do any at all. Probably. Maybe.

Because, even though I'm not reading proper books like I used to, I can't resist talking about books!

I might add another question of my own:
Is there any room in your house that doesn't have at least one book in it?
My answer at the moment is yes, currently there are no books in either of our two bathrooms. Otherwise, every room has books.

Snagged from harrigan, whose quotes were pretty awesome.

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 117. The second sentence will be your life for 2017.

Mine's from The Long Earth by Terry Pratchet and Stephen Baxter.

Some dreams were new, and at the same time very, very old...

Hmm. It's going to be an interesting year then!
amberdreams: (Bum)
Yeah, another post, sorry!

What is your favorite "food" holiday?
Ones in Rome where I can get the best gelato. Nach.

Do you prefer ham or turkey (or tofu turkey)?
None of the above. I'll have cheesy potato bake please. Or roasties.

Do you anticipate or dread seeing your relatives for the holidays?


When do you start listening to Christmas carols (for real, you can tell us)?

I don't. The only two carols I like are In the Bleak Midwinter and the Coventry Carol.

How are you feeling right now with regards to the upcoming holiday season?

I think my skin is turning green as I type. Yup.

Art Rec10!

This is a different format for an art rec post - and I haven't forgotten I said I was going to do an art rec post every month and only managed two!

sillie82, quickreaver and I were talking about memes and art and stuff and quickreaver came up this idea: the ArtRec10 meme! Give us links to ten of your favorite pieces of SPN/RPF fandom artworks. Could be on LJ, tumblr, deviantart, wherever. We know there's lots of faves, but try to pick a few. Let's make today a little more beautiful! Couldn't we use that right now?

Topics may overlap — for instance, your h/c fill may be digital — but we'd like to see ten unique reccs, if you can manage it. Also, be sure to provide a link to the original art, so folks can leave love for the artist. If you choose to post the images, mind the image sizes and be sure to put it all under a cut.

Here are mine, trying not to repeat any from my Feb and April rec posts...

I've been away doing family things and it was depressing - all the old folk are getting older and falling apart on me, and I'm worried about all of them, so I'm doing this instead. I'm also behind on Inktober and all sorts of other fun things, maybe I'll get back on track tomorrow.

Ok, by the time I post this it will be more than a day late for Fanfic Appreciation Day, but I don't think that really matters - if a fic is good it's not going to lose its lustre if I rec it late!

frozen_delight started this and I stole it from anactoria. Got to say, making a rec post against these criteria is HARD! Picking just one for each category? Nigh on impossible. Regardless, here's the list, followed by my recs.
Share and play...
1. an old fic (posted at least three years ago)
2. a new fic (posted within the last six months)
3. a fic you wish had gotten more attention (less than 50 kudos on AO3 or less than 30 comments on LJ)
4. a genfic
5. a fic focused on a female character
6. a fic which made you see a character in a new light
7. a fic which made you ship something
8. a fic which inspired you to write
9. a fic with a particularly memorable line
10. ??? (Excited to see what categories you come up with!)

Edited to add the comment meme link which I forgot yesterday :D
