Professor looks up from his writting


I have been out of touch with the SSHG community for quite a while now. Recently, I have found myself in the mood for some good old SSHG fan fiction.

I would be most grateful if anyone can supply me with recs for SSHG Fics that have been written and posted in the past couple of years?

Casual Vacancy

Just finished Casual Vacancy. I hadn't been sure I wanted to read it after getting a sneak peak through I-tunes at the first 50 pages and hearing others impressions. Then I got lent a copy of the audio book. Because I listen to so much audio as I go through my day to day routine, it seems easier to do and not such a commitment of time that sitting down with a book does.

Well my initial reluctance had a lot to do with the level of pettiness and self-absorption of the characters. And yes that was there in spades. But as I got further on and got to know the characters better it seemed that many times the motivations of one another were misunderstood and the interconnectedness of how ones actions affected another was what came across. There are obviously some very unpleasant characters and some who were deeply ill or disturbed. I think Rowling did a good job showing the thoughts and motivations of her characters.

In the end I can say that I was moved by this story, especially for Crystal, little Robbie and their mother Terri. I doubt I'll feel the desire to revisit Pagford, as I did Hogwarts. And I will look with interest on what Rowling decide to write next.

HPB Potterpuff Icon by Hewtab, blackeyedlily


I know I'm terribly behInd on posting to LJ, although I think of everyone so very often. Just wanted to let people know that I've been reading a lot of Sherlock Holmes lately. No, I don't mean Sherlock fanfic, but the original Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Yes, I've been inspired by the BBC Sherlock series, which I love. All the Conan Doyle works are available free for downloading.

Plus I found a great little app for under five dollars which has a library of thousands of classic books in audio format, and Sherlock HIlmes is included.

This is my first journal entry using my I-Phone.

50th Birthday

I've got the big 50 coming up next week. Boy have my aches and pains increased this past month or so. Actually I expect that's due to a medication change. I'm going to see my doctor and then go for a massage this afternoon.

I suspect my family of planning an event for me this weekend, prior to my birthday. I've been dropping hints of wanting a party for my big 50 for about two years. We shall see and I'll let you all know.

Ascendio 2012

Here I come Ascendio!

Well, I decided I just couldn't pass up on getting a chance to see some fandom friends when they are so close to home. So I'll be attending Acendio - arriving Thursday, July 12 and leaving Sunday, July 15 and staying at the Portofino. I've had the privilege of staying at the Portofino with family before. It is very nice! I can't wait to see fellow Snapefen, especially at whatever meet-up the Snapecasters are planning.
