If you're in the Avengers fandom at all and have a leaning toward Clint/Coulson in particular, you must go and read this fic NOW.

Yes, you really do.

Ring Around the Roses by[livejournal.com profile] tawabids

A beautiful, heartbreaking story featuring a very broken Clint and a Coulson who wants to do nothing more than help and protect him, even when Tony insists that they move into the tower with the other Avengers. The whole team is featured and their characterizations are wonderful, especially Tony who just wants to do the right thing by his friends, even if he doesn't always consider the consequences of his actions.

I have to rec this because it is just so perfect!

But I Will Hold On Hope (And I Won't Let You Choke) by Perpetual Motion(perpetfic).

It's a beautifully written Clint/Coulson getting together fic, choc-full of pitch perfect dialogue, fabulous original characters and Sitwell as snarky, fed-up Yenta. It made me squee so loud I nearly scared the staff!
Mood:: 'impressed' impressed

  • Happy Easter everyone! I have been somewhat incommunicado since last Thursday so I hope you've all had a wonderful break no matter what you celebrate.
  • Last Friday I attended my first ever rodeo in Great Western, a little 'blink and you'll miss it' town in western Victoria. We drove out Friday morning, spent the day at the rodeo and then camped over night. I haven't seen that many Akubra hats and R.M. Williams boots since the last time I watched The Man From Snowy River. Plus, there's a reason why I don't go camping. I don't care how comfortable the air mattress is, it will never make up for room service and an en-suite bathroom.
  • Easter Sunday was spent at my sister's house in the company of small children and several sisters-in-law. We ate large amounts of yummy food, drank a reasonable amount of good wine and ate many Easter eggs. All in all it was a wonderful day.
  • I still more day off and was supposed to go back to work on Wednesday, however mum's eldest brother passed away last week and now I have to drive her to Horsham on Wednesday for the funeral. He was 96 so his passing was not a surprise, but it does make me wonder just how much longer mum will be around.
  • Speaking of mum, we've finally persuaded her the maybe she shouldn't be driving anymore. Her eyesight is okay, but her ability to react to emergency situations is completely shot and what with her having a heart condition that could cause a heart attack at any time, it was perhaps time for her to hand over the car keys. She's not happy about it, but it was either that or she kill herself and the unlucky motorist who happens to be in her way when she has a funny turn while she's driving to the shops one day.
  • I have completely missed the latest episode of Supernatural and the first episode of the new Doctor Who. But don't worry about spoiling me cos I'll do that on my own anyway :~)
  • [livejournal.com profile] mojokid found this great Sports Night article that no one has seen before. Great photo of Peter, Felicity and Josh and the article its self, although short, is really rather wonderful.
  • I've just finished reading this fantastic Torchwood fic and I would urge you all to go and read it NOW! Your Face is Turned by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller, Jack/Ianto (in a round about way) rated R for really, really excellent!
  • It's Tuesday tomorrow and I have to take my elderly mother bra shopping in the morning. Oh joy!

I'm feeling much better today, even though I still didn't get much sleep last night. However I'm not going to think about that. What I am going to think about is things that make me go squee! To wit...


It's 1.30 in the afternoon and I'm still in my PJs. That's not a bad thing, is it?
Mood:: 'okay' okay

Meh, I've been feeling out of sorts all week, largely, I think, because of that guy. Which is stupid because I shouldn't let people get to me that way, and yet they do. It didn't help that yesterday we have to deal with The Most Annoying Law Student On Earth. He rang my department no less than five times to check on the progress of his requests, despite the fact that he knows it takes three working days to supply most items and that putting a need-by date of today (Saturday)is a little futile considering ILL isn't open over the weekend. He also drove the staff on the telephone inquiry service to distraction with incessant phone calls that ultimately got him no where because we are not miracle workers! I was so drained by the end of the day it was a wonder I was able to stay upright on my bike on the way home.

But it's Saturday now and it's a beautiful sunny day. As soon as my washing is finished I am going to cycle over to Station street for coffee and newspapers, then pop across to Carlton where the coat shop near work is having a sale. I have K's birthday dinner tonight in Chinatown and a side offer to drop in on best work friend and mutual fried H if the post-dinner karaoke becomes a little too much. Tomorrow I'm having coffee with A&O and then it will be Monday again, but I'm hoping that TMLSoE's articles will be waiting in the Ariel station first thing and we can be rid of him for the moment.

Also, for the first time in ages I have a fic rec! All you C6D peeps must go forht and read 1500 Kilometers (& A Caboose) by [livejournal.com profile] ariastar, a due South/My Life As A Dog crossover wherein Benton Fraser is soundly beaten at table hockey by a twelve year-old boy and learns the power of communication.

yay, m y washing is finished and coffee awaits!
