Slipping into October...  
Ah... I can officially use my Halloween icon, now!

So, things at work have been busy with the new assignment. SO much more fun than writing and rewriting specs on the Project O' Evil (made more evil by other people wanting me to write the docs, but repeatedly changing their minds as to what should be in them).

Wincon is next week, and I haven't even checked out the prom theme or what to do about it. I actually hate dressing up, and my previous sparkly dress won't fit, so I have to go shopping on top of everything else. Ugh. Goodwill, here I come!

Courtesy of bluepueblo_tmbr, two seasonal offerings from The Enchanted Wood (I need to visit that place at some point), AND an in-home feature that I feel I must have for... reasons. There are lots of gorgeous autumn pictures over there right now, so (*recurring pimp*) the feed/comm is definitely worth checking out.

Annnnd, for those who've gotten hooked on BBC Sherlock, and are not averse to John/Sherlock slash, I recommend this wonderful, moody fanfic story: Lacuna. It was a terrific read, very emotionally satisfying. Warning: the sex gets quite explicit at one point, so use your judgment.

All right, back to Coding All The Things!

I've read very few! I came to via a rec of another story by the same author, and liked Lacuna much better. :)

Is this the same author that did the betting pool fic? Because I saw that referenced in this one (I'm still reading it -- I almost threw my phone at the MB practice because of a certain thing Sherlock did pissing me off, lol), and I was like IS THIS THE SAME AUTHOR.

Seriously, I am loving this thing and it's ridiculously long AND I NEED TO GO TO BED BUT I CAN'T WITHOUT FINISHING IT UGH.

It's an author who wrote a story about John forming a phone friendship with Sherlock's mother, which was very cute and cozy, but... no.

Looking at who Sherlock and Mycroft are? They did NOT have loving parents, particularly not a loving mother. They have all the hallmarks of having a mother who rejected them at every turn (as opposed to one who died while they were young, or a rejecting father).

But Lacuna? SO awesome. :D

Dude, how could anyone think that Sherlock and Mycroft had parents that gave a shit. They so do not. So didn't. Etc.

God yes it was. It was so good I want to write something like that for myself. Which is highest compliments, from me. xD

It'd probably involve Savin and Mitchel or Jazz and Mitchel because MY BRAIN IS STUCK ON THESE PAIRINGS.

...I can't be the only person in existence who writes fics of their own characters, can I? lol
