Make the post you want to see in the world  
"Nothing happens to post about in the SGA fandom," I said, and [personal profile] sgamadison  rightly responded that not posting is just making the fandom even quieter. There's more activity on tumblr, but I miss actual discussions. Though I'm giving serious consideration to setting up an automatic crossposter between mcshep-everyday and dreamwidth/livejournal to try and boost the fandom over here.

Anyway, in an effort to bring fandom back to journaling sites:

I've been reading Pegasus Purgatorio lately. I have only read it once, way back when I first joined the fandom, so it's practically brand new to me. It's interesting how the author twisted canon - like making Kanaan the leader of Michael's mutants. I do love the idea of Atlantis evacuating Pegasus planets to empty Milky Way ones, though. I have no idea how John and Rodney are going to make it back to Earth, though lol.

Lately, I've been giving a lot of thought to rereading fics I've only been through once, a long time ago - fics like The Whaleverse and A Face That Nobody Knows. I've also given some thought to reading the Ex Patria series, but I already know that John and Rodney being in an open relationship is going to bother me, so why torture myself? BUT THE PLOT LOOKS SO COOL. But their relationship...but the PLOT... Anyway, If you're cool with that kind of thing, you should check that series out - I've heard nothing but good things! If it helps, I think I was told that John & Rodney are only ever explicitly with each other. I think.

I've been making brief forays in to the Harry Potter fandom too, but I am EPIC picky about my HP fic. All of it basically has to be EWE (epilogue? what epilogue?). I don't care if it's Hogwart's Eight Year fic, or something that takes place more in the future, but I'm not interested in reading fic set back during book 5, say. If you're looking for an amazing author, check out saras_girl. She single-handedly got me back into HP after more than a decade away from the fandom.

I also read Cinderwings, an Dean/Castiel Supernatural sort-of Cinderella AU, but it's so much more than that.

Not too long ago, I finished reading Strong Poison, a Peter Wimsey novel. I was surprised by how fast I became smitten with Peter <3 I already have the next book (I'm focusing on the ones that have Harriet Vane in them) but I have to be in the mood for books.

What is everyone reading these days?

The most I think about it, and the more that I see posts like this, the more I want to start writing my McShep acting AU that I pinged you about. Just that right now I'm A) finishing up the rewrite for Migration because it HAS to be done soon (I can't keep putting it off). I'm finally at 59.75% complete, so I'm definitely over the hump! And as soon as I'm done with that, I think I'm going to get in and start writing. But right now I'm not reading McShep - I need to re-read that Sherlock AU first, but that has to come after my friend Nazri's Urban Fantasy prequel and book that he wants me to read. If you're interested the prequel, Penumbra, is free on his website. And while I dearly love Naz, he's written his books in first person - so they're taking a while for me to read.

Good news for me is, the first full week of May I'm not only hosting a week on CommentFic, but I'm also working from home! Boo isn't going to be there, because h has to go to Vegas, so that will give me four full days of uninterrupted focus (after work of course ::grin:: ). That should be enough time to finish Migration and get on with the dozen other projects I'm working on. :)

I am SO PUMPED for your acting AU. I know it's a hefty undertaking but I'll be here for whatever you need. I totally get wanting to finish your rewrite of Migration, especially if you're basically 60% of the way through. I get needing to reread the Sherlock AU first, and of course your friend's book :) His prequel book sounds FASCINATING, so I am definitely going to check it out. I'm not too put off by first person. Thank you for the link :D

Congrats on your week off :D I'm both sorry and not sorry that Boo isn't going to be there - sorry because it would be wonderful if you got a chunk of time to spend with Boo, but also - you said it yourself, it'll give you time to finish up projects that I'm greedy for, lolll.

Naz's book is pretty good - I mean if you can get me to read first person, then you know that you've captured my attention.

And thank you about the week, though it's just a work from home week, not an actual week off. But because Boo is there, my time won't be as structured as it normally would be with him home. Don't get me wrong; I'm crazy about him - but it's good to have a little time apart, too. :)

Good point! And that bodes well for me, since I'm not bothered by 1st person.

Awww. Well, working from home HAS to be better than having to go into an office. I totally get the need for time apart - sometimes you just want to be alone.
