ROME the Series DVD! Ah, so much love. And the viewing is even better the second time around. Ah, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, you are such heterosexual life mates, or maybe not, but I love you all the same or possibly even more. And Octavian--baby!Augustus--many hearts! And Julius Ceasar...so much to love, so much so that I will ignore the unpaved!Appian way.
It's only hubris if I lose.
--Julius Ceasar to Marc Antony
I have been reading Clex. Shut up, Sofia, I can hear you laughing from here. *g* I love the mythic doomicity of it all. It's so freaking hurty before it even starts. All free-will and fate and struggling to be a better man. Ah, the struggle's the point, isn't it?
Meanwhile we do no harm, for they
That with a god have striven,
Not hearing much of what we say,
Take what the god has given.
Though like waves breaking it may be,
Or like a changed familiar tree,
Or like a stairway to the sea,
Where down the blind are driven.
--Edward Arlington Robinson, "Eros Turranos"
I'm also appreciating a well-written Chlana. I do not like it when the pairing is a device to keep them away from the boys. No, there has to be some there there.
Speaking of doomed, Fay Jay (pandarus) has a wonderful Snape/Lily fic, requited. I loves me some Snape/Lily, yes I do.
Unrelated, but I have to pimp: Mission Report by lim. It's a Teyla flavored SGA vid. But not just your regular vid, because the music? She wrote, sang and performed herself. GAH! Creativity doesn't get any shinier than that. This is the toothbrush and toothpaste for that unfortunate kerfuffle. Just yeah.
It seems that manymany are going over to faith_dean, as in so much talent from my flist: alizarin_nyc, femmenerd, pandarus, regala_electra. They must be right! But since I only know one half of the pairing, I haven't checked it out yet. But they must be right! I'll have to hook myself up with some SPN.
OMG! Happy birthday, alizarin_nyc! *twirls you*
I am a spoon. This should be significant. Perhaps I should be a soup spoon.
