Time Stands Still fic

Last night I was still knackered after my recent trip to the mountains and totally needed to sleep it all off. However, I couldn't resist reading the last chapter of the fic Time Stands Still by S05Y31 on fanfiction.net.
Dear God.

To think that at the beginning I'd started reading it more to fill the days waiting for updates of other fics, this story really grew on me. I don't usually care much about fics where children are involved (ew, I see enough of them during working days) and kind of try to avoid them tbh: in here, the reason Naomi gets to take care of the little Mason is different enough to make me keep on reading.
And then comes Emily.

................. I've started to think I might have a thing for stories in which my adored, brave, strong Emily Fitch is transformed into an insecure person trapped in a situation she can't/won't get out of (just see some of my fav fics...). It makes me want to scream at my pc, yet for the life of me I can't stop reading and anxiously waiting for new chapters.

And so, there I was, at 2 am, wanting to shake Fictional!Emily by the shoulders and actually yelling at her to do the right thing and stop being a coward. And then. "Complete". WHAT??? How can that be over like that?! NO, FFS!!! Emileh, Emileeehhhhhh!!! Jesus Christ, no. I need a sequel IMMEDIATELY. Do you hear me, S05Y31?!
Alright, I get that that one was maybe the natural conclusion of that story, considering the characters' personalities and development, so I get that the author felt it had to be closed that way. But now I really want to read more.

Thank fuck there'll be a sequel. I'm waiting.

2nd Feb. 2011 - Unpopular opinion

I sadly spent last weekend in bed, quite ill, so I did what was best and finally caught up with both US Skins and UK Skins.

What striked me was how disappointed I was after watching UK’s 501. I had read comments on FF and they were almost all highly positive and delighted, so I had good expectations… and, well, at the end I was so unimpressed it almost felt weird. The storyline seemed to me quite unrealistic and forced (all those things happening in – what was it? 2 days?) and the end of the ep was too positive to be truly believable IMO, but above all I didn’t feel the characters. At all. The scene between Franky and Matty had me even go all “WTF is that? Who wrote it? Come on, please”.

What’s scary is that at the moment I prefer US Skins, which is really saying a lot…

 

I just… I don’t know. I want to love Gen 3, but right now I don’t feel anything for them.

I'm a Ravenclaw, of course!

A few days ago I took this quiz (I think everyone on FF did it!) and I was absolutely not surprised by the result, not in the slightest: of course I'm a Ravenclaw, what else should I be?



The sorting hat says that I belong in Ravenclaw!

Said Ravenclaw, "We'll teach those whose intelligence is surest."

Ravenclaw students tend to be clever, witty, intelligent, and knowledgeable.

Notable residents include Cho Chang and Padma Patil (objects of Harry and Ron's affections), and Luna Lovegood (daughter of The Quibbler magazine's editor).

To be honest, my complete result was:

97 Ravenclaw

82 Hufflepuff

66 Gryffindor

59 Slytherin.

I forced my sister to take the same quiz, and it turns out she's a Ravenclaw as well.

Yesterday I was sitting in the very back row of a classroom at uni, attending to the presentation of one of my former professors' new book.

Welcome!

I’ve been loitering around LiveJournal for months, studying it to decide if getting on it was a suitable option or just adding another distraction/potential addiction to my already long list. In the end the temptation was just too strong and when did I resist to an internet related temptation? You know the answer already.

So a couple of days ago I thought I might as well do my little thing on here. I still don’t know exactly HOW I will use LJ, or how much... nor even what language I’ll be using! (probably my by now infamous mixture...) Give me time to figure all of that out.

In the meanwhile welcome :)
