Due South

Stories

I have spent the day not doing homework (or eating, for that matter. I should do that soon). I have spent the last few hours not revising. I have spent the day doing God-knows-what.

But in better news (for you, at least), I have a bunch of stories to rec. Just a few things I've found in the last week or two that I've enjoyed.

Selfinsertion O'Bugger-Subtlety and the Philosopher's Stone by Night Mistress
The true story of the Philosopher's Stone. Follow Selfinsertion O'Bugger-Subtlety in his attempts to wreck havok on the English b#$%#@s who rule his homeland. Involves shot owls, terrorists!Hufflepuffs and explosions. Lots of explosions.
All right. How can you not read a story where the main character's name is Selfinsertion O'Bugger-Subtletly? And that's the least funny part of the entire story.

Elvis, Cher, and a Quickie by Nokomiss
...the Andromeda Black/Ted Tonks story. Because Elvis impersonators are so hard to find.
She's written a couple Andromeda/Ted ficlets that are cute.

Quid Quid Latine Dictum Sit: Anything Said in Latin by Elucreh
The armorer wants to know what to put on the coat of arms, and Godric and Salazar have left it to the girls to decide what Hogwart's motto will be. Helga and Rowena joke while they try to find something, "Profound, practical, and historical..." Fun
Quite funny and not very long. So none of you should have an excuse for not reading it.

The Singer, Not the Song by Andry
Ted Tonks and Andromeda Black have a first meeting in 1970. Hearts break, sparks fly, the Beatles are played. PG13 for language.
Another cute Andromeda/Ted fic. Also quite light, but I thought it was a nice change from all the dark Black fics that I read. Which are also very good.

Hmm... maybe I should have organised this list a little better, instead of doing humour/romance/humour/romance. Oh, and the two humour ones are more classy and funny humour, not the stupid humour which I also enjoy.

And since I'm plugging, beo_go_deo C'mon! You know you want to join.

I've also finished that goddamned Charmed story that I started over three years ago. Well, finished except for minor revisions of the last part. But will finish that today as well. Then I'll be down to only three incomplete stories hanging over my head.

*sigh*

I haven't left my room all day.

Okay, so that's a lie. I've got to the bathroom and to the kitchen (the latter only to get food). I've been sitting in front of the computer all day. And I haven't even done anything useful.

I did finally start my school work. Which leads me to my rant about my new poli sci prof. On the syllabus, he doesn't differentiate between what's required reading and what isn't, so I keep on having to search through my coursepak two or three times, looking for readings which turn out to be recommended only.

It's very annoying.

Oh, and Kazaa is acting up. It keeps on switching file names around, so I can't find any of my songs.

So basically, this was a pointless post.
