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*

*nod* Auburn is AMAZINGLY talented, she blows me away, but most of her work is just TOO heavy for me. I think I skimmed "City of Seven Walls" and just noped out of there, lol.

I remember it being like a week after I finished it, and I was at my parents house, and I just started bawling about a scene (probably from 3/4 way through the story). SMH. I tried to rewrite the ending in my head a bit to deal with how it ended.

Oh man, I've done that. Rewrite endings and such in my head, I mean. Especially for heavier fics like that lol.
