There are still three summaries that need to have complement creators. If you are interested, or if you know of someone who is, please go here to claim a summary. And please help spread the word; we don't want these summaries to be without complements. \o/

#06

Media type: fic

Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Foursome m/m/m/m, Something Made Them Do It, Dubious Consent, Mpreg, Alternate Universe: Everyone Lives/No-one Dies, Sibling Incest, angst with a happy ending
Summary: [Danger Days: True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys (based on music videos rather than comics)] An ordinary skirmish in the desert with dracs leads to Frank taking the brunt of a new weapon - and ends with him pregnant, furious, and freaking out. When the shit hits the fan and he gets kidnapped and taken back for interrogation by Korse, and forced to listen to the contents of the Traffic Report, something in him snaps. This fucking dystopia has gone on too long.

#13

Media type: podfic
Bands: My Chemical Romance
Relationships: Frank Iero/Gerard Way (side pairing Alicia Simmons/Mikey Way)

#20

Media type: fic
Bands: My Chemical Romance, Mindless Self Indulgence
Relationships: Frank Iero/Gerard Way, Lindsey Ballato/Frank Iero/Gerard Way
Rating: Teen to Mature
Warnings: violence; character death; suicide (minor character, off-screen).
Summary: Western genre, set in the 1890s American West. Gunfights! Desert pursuit! Horses and pistols! Vendettas! Frank and Gerard made it through their first cattle drive together, but now Frank is gone and Gerard doesn’t know what to do. All he knows is that it has something to do with the preacher man. Turns out, Lindsey is looking for the preacher man too, but she won’t say why. Gerard has reasons enough to hate the man, but Lindsey has more—reasons that stretch back into her family, her childhood, and what brought her out west in the first place. Like the hero of any Western story, she wants revenge. Ray is a New Mexico lawman who has to decide what to do with Lindsey’s quest, and whether to allow her to bring vigilante justice to his ranching town.

What I Just Finished Reading

I really hit the jackpot in terms of reading this week; the only near-miss was caused by my own lack of planning. *kicks self*

A Tyranny of Queens, by Foz Meadows, the sequel to An Accident of Stars. I did this book a terrible injustice by not rereading the first one before this sequel. I remembered Safi and Gwen, but lost track of most everyone else. So it was a good read, but not the great and engrossing one it could have been for me. So I'm planning a reread of both.

Behind the Throne and After the Crown, by K.B. Wagers. If you love Star Wars but wanted more intrigue, and less explosions, these books are for you! (There are still plenty of explosions, though. YAY EXPLOSIONS.) Non-stop action, fun characterization, unusual South Asian based worldbuilding! I devoted pretty much two whole days of my life to these books last week, and I don't regret it one bit. Third book in the series coming this fall!

Traitor's Blade, by Sebastien De Castell. This is a hilarious, snarky take on The Three Musketeers, and probably any number of other things. Four big fat thick books in this series!

What I Am Currently Reading

Knight's Shadow, the sequel to Traitor's Blade, because it was sitting right there at the library. How could I resist? Still a wild ride, but now with even more fierce female characters!

What I Am Reading Next

Next up is the Frances Hardinge Festival (which was postponed when Knight's Shadow showed up) featuring Fly by Night and its sequel, Fly Trap. So many hilarious quotes from these books on Goodreads - how could I resist?

I am out of exclamation points, so I will stop now *giggle snort* What are all of you up to today?

So I've only been working on this fic, on and off, since the last HP movie came out. Never say I don't eventually finish my beloved old WIPs.

Geometry of the Impossible, Remus/Sirius/James/Lily
"I don't think Lily nor James would be very happy if I did his courting for him," Remus said. He saw that Sirius' face was fixed into blank patience, and had a flash of desire to snarl and go for Sirius' throat, because he might at least understand that. "Look. There are comical farces written around your idea, and I'm not terribly keen on having Lily fall for me instead --"

Please enjoy 21k of Teenage Werewolf Disaster :DDD

Summer is become very summery in my garden! We've had a few hummingbirds, but the bigger excitement in the garden has been the sighting of hummingbird moths!



(Photo not by me, because there's now way I'd be able to get that.) WOW.

What I Just Finished Reading

Wool, by Hugh Howey, a self-published novella which is apparently the start of the Silo series, but I wasn't really engaged by it (and not in the mood for yet another distopian series) so didn't pursue any further.

Conspiracy of Ravens, by Lila Bowen, which was the sequel to Wake of Vultures. I didn't enjoy this one has much as I did the other; it seemed lacking in that sense of rambunctious joy despite the vampires/werewolves/chupacabras/whatever that infused the first book. This one felt like it was trying just a little bit too hard.

The Prey of the Gods, by Nicky Draden, which I did enjoy to pieces, ohmigosh, an unusual plot and setting, GREAT characters, fun, witty writing, four stars all around!

What I Am Currently Reading

Ally, Book 4 in the Wess'har War series. The further I delve into this series, the more impressed I am with the deft plotting, characterization, sly wit, and incisive observation. There's no black nor white here, but a varied palette of greys, providing much food for thought.

Behind the Throne, by K.B. Wagers. The back cover blurb compares this kickass heroine to Han Solo, Leia, and Rey; I'd definitely add Jyn Erso to that list too. I've only read a little bit but I'm impressed so far.

What I Am Reading Next

After the Crown, the sequel to Before the Throne, because it was right there in front of me.

Of Sorrow and Such, by Angela Slatter, as recommended by [personal profile] ribby.

A Tyranny of Queens, by Foz Meadows, which I feel like I've been waiting for forever!

Question of the Day: Peek out your nearest window. What do you see? I see a cardinal out at my bird feeder, chirping away. He's not bothered by the heat at all.
