I am more than halfway into a 225K Figure Skating AU fic. And I am not even tempted to DNF it. O.o

You may not be aware that there is a kickstarter going for the third omnibus volume of the Daron's Guitar Chronicles webserial. This is a great opportunity to score some cheap ebooks and Daron swag, even if you don't need a paperback. Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...

WTF is this thing even doing on my kindle? I would never buy a vampire book, especially one this bland, so why is it here?

I recently moved all my content from one kindle to another and now my order of unread books is all messed and gems like this resurface...

I am reading this to my 11 year old. He said: "You know, mom, I am not really sure what is going on, but I don't even care, because the way she writes it is just so beautiful, that I am really liking it." I agree with him, Sutcliff is a very evocative writer. And I am so happy that my boy is learning to appreciate the beauty of that kind of writing!

Jole just got a prestigious but demanding job offer back on Barrayar. Oh no! What is he going to choose? The job, or the new love, new hobby and a disturbing number of babies? Raise you hand if you already know the babies are going to win.

And honestly, who in their right mind (meaning anyone who has had more than one) thinks SIX children is a desirable number? Even if you would have nannies...

Shit had better hit the fan sometime soon, because I am a little bored right now. Mundane trivialities going on and way too much talking about the ins and outs of IVF.

LenaLena is 8% done with Gentleman Jole and the Red Queen
Well, that was an extremely Cordelia first chapter. We seem to be going to get all the classic Bujold in this book: baby-politics, Barryaran backwardness and Aral's bisexuality. And let's not forget: It's Miles's business, but not his decision, so I haven't told him yet.

Yeah.... that's inevitably going to come bite you in the ass.

OMG! This eARC came out yesterday. A new Vorkosigan book featuring Cordelia... Would I pay $15 to read the unproofed version now, instead of waiting for the offical book in February? Hell yes! I just did.

All the arguments are starting to run together, I need something to actually happen pretty soon.

Also: 'brain the size of a planet' is a phrase you can use once, as a wink-wink reference to Hitchhiker's Guide. Not five times.

Editor asleep at the wheel....

Carole Cummings: more world building in one chapter than in two complete volumes of a Lisa Henry scifi.

Does anyone know what happened to kindlebox/bookdrop? I loved this dropbox app, but now it has stopped working on my pc and I can't find any place to reinstall it from.

Just to be clear: scar tissue doesn't grow with you. If you get your thigh laid open when you're 11, the scar won't go knee to hip when you're fully grown. Especially when you grow as big as Elezar. My brother managed to cut himself from knee to ankle when he was about 9. Now, at 6'9" it's ridiculous how small that scar is.
Still, if that is about the only issue I have with this book up till now, we're good.

Now that Steve and Tony have finally found the Grail I have time to read a book again!

So, hypothetically, if you were writing a time travel fanfic about Captain America and Iron Man and the search for the Holy Grail, what would you title it?

Quick word search in the Johnlock fic I am reading: 75 x 'mumbled', 111 x 'hummed' and 243 x 'murmured'. I think it is time to cut my losses.

Can't believe my fish&chips!AU Stony fic just hit 1000 kudos on AO3. Quite an accomplishment for something that started as a joke. I am going to celebrate by writing a chapter of my Stony Grail!fic.

Lots of cool science and technology. And then we learn that the Earth's oceans are 'drained' (drained to where? where did the water go? underground? offplanet?) and everything is rocks. Also it has been raining for over a thousand years. WTF? Where does rainwater come from with no oceans? Where does it go, if not to filling the oceans back up? Why u not explain this impossible hydrological cycle, Dan Simmons?

For all you AO3 addicts in possession of a Kindle: check out KindleBox! It installs a folder in a (free) Dropbox account and all mobi (or other format) files you save to that folder get automatically sent to your Kindle. I tried it, it works great! Find it here: kindlebox

It's a beautiful day today.

Where the hell did the horses and hawks come from? You crashed a space ship on a strange planet and formed a agricultural society. That doesn't magically give you horses a thousand or however many years down the road, no matter how well they fit into your feudal society.

Just because the humans can cross breed with the local aliens doesn't mean you also parallel evolutioned horses and hawks.

I am a little creeped out by how dated this is with its neo-hippies, its LSD like sex pollen and ESP as a lost and rediscovered human ability. But most of all

I hafe to say I am almost irrationally happy that Andrew's -understandable- need to be in complete control has not turned this into yet another crappy BDSM story. I can just imagine all the ways this book could have been ruined for me, but so far so good.

I am getting a little nervous, because everyone seems to lose their shit around 60%. I have manfully avoided clicking on any spoilers. I will most likely regret that restraint. Almost there.....
