Reading Fic  
I've been in the mood to read something new - McShep new, I mean (I have plenty of unread books in my TBR pile). There are very few long  McShep fics remaining that I haven't read, and the ones I haven't usually have a reason for them going unread (like City of the Seven Walls). But that's not true of them all, so I've been poking at the ones I haven't read yet.

One of them, Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves, looks super good and I want to read it, but I keep feeling like I'm not smart enough. I may have said that before, but I've been considering starting it for a week now, and I keep doubting myself. So I look at the other fics, can't decide if I want an AU or a canon-based fic, and then just give up and watch stuff. Because I haven't found a McShep fic that satisfies my needs, I've been reading in other fandoms. I've been reading a lot of Les Miserables fic, which is really good, but kind of started to feel same-y after a while in terms of plot (lots of fake boyfriends and school AU's).

I think I just need to make a damn decision and stick with it. I get in this cycle of indecision and can't break free of it until I get super frustrated with myself.

That's really all the interesting stuff going on in my life *shrugs*

Oh and City of the Seven Walls I read but nearly killed me. Epic, brutal, searing - I'll never forget it, but I'm not sure I could ever read it again. I probably will, but I'll need to prepare myself! :D

I can never read City of the Seven Walls. Fandom is my escape, and I just can't read my boys going through all that shit. It is TOO MUCH.

Honestly? Most of Auburn's fics are a hardcore "NOPE" for me. She writes AMAZINGLY well, but her plots and stuff... *shakes head* Which is another reason why I've hesitated to read Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves.

Yeah, they are amazing, but they affect me so profoundly that I (who can never have self control over anything) find myself rationing them out. There are some I haven't read yet, which I know I will, but I kind of need to make the brain (and heart!) space for them!

Rationing them out might be a good idea anyway, since they're so heavy and they affect you so much.
