randomling: Tara McLay holds a lit candle out to Willow Rosenberg. (Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) (tara/willow)
Here is my question.

I just finished a wonderful M/M fantasy trilogy and I am in desperate need of further recs.

I love M/M, and am working on not being terribly ashamed that it's my crack (sometimes I feel like it makes me a bad feminist). I don't mind if the guys in question are gay, bisexual, undefined, experienced or inexperienced, just discovering their sexuality or secure in their identity. Kink is fine but I prefer thinky-kink to insufficient negotiation. I'm okay with fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal, SF, horror, you name it as long as there is Something Weird Going on. I'd like the romance aspect to be fairly foregrounded (but pure romance with no Something Weird Going On is, I think, liable to bore me).

Though the trilogy I just finished (A Flight of Mapgies by KJ Charles) is set in Victorian England, I generally speaking find Victoriana tedious and a bit distressing, though I'll try anything once. We Have To Deal With Epic Homophobia (or other prejudice) as a major plot point is likely to upset me unless handled with extraordinary skill. I'd like to be able to enjoy some happy interludes though I'll also enjoy a plot that puts the characters through the wringer.

I'm not sure if any of this is helpful, but if you have anything to rec, I'd love to hear it!

* Inbox zero!!!! Has been a long time coming, so: FINALLY.

* Does anyone have any (online, preferably) shop recommendations for storage solutions for paper/stationery/etc? Ikea have some lovely things, but their delivery charge is exorbitant and I most certainly don't have the spoons for a trip to Croydon any time soon.

* Night Vale live next month EEEEEE.

* Work is going well! Have resolved some slightly snarly client stuff and am getting things done. Last couple of weeks have been really rough but I'm working my way back to where I want to be.

* I am not getting much (any) writing done and I'm slightly panicking about that 'cause it's Exchange Season and i have no idea what I want to nominate for Yuletide.

* I'm also not reading much, but this is an Ongoing Pattern and has been for at least a year. I have zero attention span.

* I think that's it for now!

I've picked up the knitting habit again, which means I'm watching lots of TV. Especially when knitting boring patterns.

So, I'm kind of looking for cool TV shows to watch.

Here's some things:

-I quite like downbeat shows, but right now, I'd like cheery stuff. It's winter and I seem to have overdosed on sad books and TV episodes recently.

-Funny is good. Snarky humour is awesome; lots of slapstick probably won't make me all that happy.

-Sci fi, horror, fantasy, weirdshit, etc, are all pretty awesome. Mundane TV shows about high schoolers with no supernatural/sci fi element, probably not so much. (I'm quite tempted by How I Met Your Mother, even though there's nothing fantastical.)

-Reality shows are RIGHT OUT. I require plot. And scripts.

I'm all caught up on Haven, WH13 and Eureka. Currently watching The Dead Zone (old! But fun). Loved Buffy, Dollhouse and Firefly, have yet to see most of Angel. Was keeping up with both The BIg Bang Theory and Supernatural up until about halfway through last season, but have totally lost my place on both shows. Have had the Sarah Connor Chronicles and.... the one with Joshua Jackson...? Fringe! Sarah Connor Chronicles and Fringe have been recommended.

I would love some recommendations, droll-or-flist!

[livejournal.com profile] tallarn linked me to a free Warren Ellis webcomic called FreakAngels. It's been running for 58 episodes, every week with a few breaks - so for a bit over a year by now. It's really cool. If you're into post-apocalyptic scenarios, or you like comics even a little bit, I'd recommend giving it a go. (If you're into Warren Ellis, I'll bet you're already reading it: but if you're like me, and like Warren Ellis but hadn't come across this, try it out!) It's many shades of awesome.

If you're into the thrilling combination of gay romance and parnormal fiction, and you haven't already come across this author, you should check out the wonderful Jordan Castillo Price and her PsyCops series. She rocks!

If anyone can rec me similar stuff (to either thing), I'd love it! :D

First drafts for [livejournal.com profile] bittybang are due on Friday. Which is awesome; I've had my draft for a couple of weeks now, but still don't have a summary, and it's hard to invent one. At some point in the next couple of days I shall have to!

I've been busy with life-stuff, so writing on The Plan has been stalled for a while. Would like to get at least a few more words on it before I have to edit [livejournal.com profile] bittybang and start on SeSa.

I'm also obsessing about Supernatural a lot. I'm up to 3x14 and really enjoying the show so far. I have a little bunch to watch before I'm done! [livejournal.com profile] etsu_88 kindly uploaded up to 4x06 for me, so I shall soon be completely up to date.

I haven't done any fic-reading for the longest time - like, months - mostly because my illness has been making it hard to concentrate. And now I'm starting to feel better and I'm dying to have something good to get my teeth into. I'm not really very well-read in popslash, and would love to have something cool and new-to-me to read. Would love something long, like, 10k+ long. Anyone have anything specific to recommend?

(I am not choosy on pairings, kinks or plotlines, particularly - but I AM choosy about quality. Which is silly in fanfic, I know, but there you have it.)

And finally. Because tomorrow's the final day for sign-ups, I'll provide another pimp. If you haven't signed up for MtYG yet, WHY NOT?!

This concludes my Stuff for today.

Flickr or Photobucket? Or something else?

I'm looking for something free which can host some pictures for me as I don't like the LJ Scrapbook very much at all.

I don't want ads all over my picspam, obviously, but I don't know if that's an issue.

Someone give me a rec?
