Recs – 20 July 2012

Another week, another batch of recommendations. At least I hope. Sometimes I read a ton, sometimes I read nothing at all. And I definitely go through trends in what I am or am not reading. If I’ve found a few fandom it’ll be mostly that fandom that I rec that week. If I’m just working the status quo, I might have a wide smattering of only a few items.

Recs – 6 Jan 2011

Another batch of my reading. Since this one includes a “not off AO3” item, I’ll do that one in the old style, simply so that it’s done in some way consistent to something. This means there are two ways of doing things, and I’ll place all the “old style” entries at the top, and all the AO3 styled entries at the bottom.


Psych

We ended up taking a break and sleeping a little bit before resuming our session as if nothing had interrupted us. Sometimes a person needs some sleep, and none of us are as young as we used to be (or so they tell us…) It should be noted that this particular adventure was played on 1 January 2012.

I get y’all wonder what happened to me. Well, There was a bit of a scramble to get ready to have a new years D&D game. I pulled it off, in addition to a huge amount of cooking, just in time. It did mean skipping two days worth of entries, though. In apology, I’m going to start writing up the D&D adventure we just experienced.

So, herein lies the tale of our three intrepid adventurers.

Recs – 30 Dec 2011

I’ve been ages in not doing recs, and really need to get back into it, since I still do read a fair bit of fanfic. Since I’ve gotten an account on A03 and that’s where most of my fic-reading happens I’ve decided to just take to using the codes they’ve got for sharing bookmarks/recing through them. The feature is there, and I’m damned well going to use it.

They will still be filtered into my own format on my various recs pages, though.
