Survived 3/4 exams including the weeklong abstract algebra Take-Home Exam of Doom.  Am supposed to be spending the weekend cramming for my analysis midterm, but I did a couple problems yesterday and then stayed up until 1 am reading Batman & Robin, derping on Tumblr, and watching Star Trek: TNG.  Heh.  Guess I know what I'm doing today.

ANYWAY.  Why am I here and not learning about the Mean Value Theorem...I actually don't remember.  OH!  Insta-rec.  If you would like to go back to crying about the Ponds leaving, and if you would like a story that reads like a cross between circa-S5 lyrical Eleven/Amy fic and current canon, you should read no one loves you like I love you by [ profile] pyrodynamo.  It is excellent.

This is not even really my ship, but I can never resist a good comment ficathon.  If you can't, either, click the banner to see what [ profile] killdarlings and [ profile] northernqueens are running!

If you're looking for something fun to do and not, like me, hiding from the suddenly never-ending pile of math you ought to be doing, you should check this thing of [ profile] dollsome's out!  It's quite neat.  [ profile] blithers wrote me a really gorgeous little fill in which Amy and Rory pick apples.  I might fill something if I have the time, but like I said, only here because I already took an exam and sketched seven proofs today and I really don't want to touch the rest of the math that's waiting for me just yet.

Hello, flist!  I hope your October is off to a good start.  Mine started off with an exam grade getting raised from a D+ to a B, so that was ever so nice!  I do have more exams approaching, so I guess I'll be a little swamped by the end of the week.  But not too badly, I hope, and I expect I'll be around, lurking if not posting.  

Things have been a little bit crazy in fandom-land, since Angels aired this weekend (still crying, btw, but the good kind, I think?)  I sort of posted a bunch of Whoish things all at once, so to recap:

- If you missed it and would like to read, there was domestic Amy/Rory fic, pre-finale, no spoilers
- If you saw the finale and want to hop around and have feels, I have a reaction post
- If you want to prompt/read/write Amy/Rory fic, the Amy/Rory Cheer-Up Comment-A-Thon that I am hosting with [ profile] sarah531 is still going on!  We've got lots of prompts and have had several fills already, so you should definitely go take a peek. :)

And now, for an incomplete list of things you should GO READ NOW:

I should have been asleep half an hour ago, so this has gotta be short, but I wanted to post quickly before I get offline.  I just watched the first episode of Game of Thrones!  I am oscillating between fascinated and horrified, which I suspect is the desired reaction?  Does anyone want to give me vague, non-spoilery guidance?  Like how much more disturbing does it get?  Or recs.  Recs would also be good, with spoiler warnings, if you have any favorites laying around.
ladymercury_10: (Default)
So I have finally started catching up on Sherlock and am now through 2.1.  Irene Adler is my new favorite person.  I feel like I have missed all the fic/icons/vids/graphics/etc. by being late to the party, so would anyone care to rec me?  I'm not too worried about spoilers for the rest of Season 2, but I pretty much don't read fic that's longer than 10k words.

P.S. If you know where to find an icon that says "Brainy is the new sexy," you'd kinda be my hero. :P
ladymercury_10: (TARDIS)
Hello, flist!  I was wondering if any of you know of any good sci-fi books you could rec me.  I've always liked watching sci-fi more than reading it, but I just read The Time Traveler's Wife (Audrey Niffenegger) and Stories of Your Life and Others (Ted Chiang) back-to-back and now I'm in a genre fiction mood.  I generally like things that are lyrical or whimsical (although I suspect these qualities may be less common in sci-fi than fantasy).  I've previously read:

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
As She Climbed Across the Table
Fahrenheit 451
The Speed of Dark

as well as lots of Madeleine L'Engle and a few short stories by Arthur C. Clarke, "Epicac" by Kurt Vonnegut, and part of I, Robot (I did like it, but I never got to finishing it....).

[ profile] ityellsback you are a genius for finding this and I will now proceed to spam it all over the world.  I think most of you on my flist like at least one of the following and this has all of them: ladies being awesome, fairy tales, Marina & the Diamonds, diversity.

Okay, so I was wrong and I do have time for LJ today.  Hehe.  Happy Ada Lovelace Day! 

I have to go in a minute, because I want to get some homework done before I leave for the Physics Club picnic (I am not a physics major, but I know several people who are).  Anyway, what was I trying to say?  Oh, yes!

If you like River/Eleven, fairy tales, or just good DW fic in general, you really ought to read [ profile] leiascully's latest story if you haven't done already.  It's beautiful, and it works in the fairy tale themes quite elegantly.  Definitely one of my new favorites.  It's here.  Spoilers for 6x13, as you'd probably expect.

If you've not read "The Weight of Us" by [ profile] dollsome, you really ought to.  It's a fill-in between AGMGTW and Let's Kill Hitler, and it's really bittersweet and lovely and sad and gently funny and so very in-character.  It's really the sort of thing we need in canon to make sense of all the reveals and pacing and character shifts, and the author has a wonderful, subtle touch.  Spoilers, obviously.

Inspired by [ profile] clocketpatch  and [ profile] promethia_tenk , I come bearing recs!  I may have already recced some of these to one or all of you in the past, but I wanted to collect the things that gave me fannish glee of late and share them!  Most of them are relatively recent, although there are a few things that are a bit older.  If you know of anything spiffy you'd like to rec to me, I'd be ever so grateful.  :)

So there you have it!  Wow, I didn't mean to rec this many things.  This took forever.
ladymercury_10: (Rory and Melody)
Oh my goodness, you guys. I just read a really fantastic story.  It's about Rory having nightmares after the events of "The Doctor's Wife"--no other spoilers that I noticed--and how the Doctor makes him feel better in his own strange way.  But that doesn't really tell you much--it's about so much more than that.  It's really magical and it captures the feel of the show perfectly.   It has the Doctor being weird and kind and a little bit scary and Rory being brave and terrified and brilliant and just a good person trying his best and four-dimensional space creatures and telepathy and the TARDIS and it's absolutely fabulous.

You should go read it here at the Teaspoon.  All of you.  And then tell the author how wonderful s/he is.

Have any of you heard of the podcast "Bridging the Rift?"  It's a Doctor Who podcast--I don't know much about it, but it seems to be reemerging after a bit of a hiatus.  The reason I've heard of it is because they recorded my story "Countable Infinities" for their latest episode.  I'm very excited!  If you're interested in checking it out, you can download the podcast for free either on iTunes or at the following link:

1. So I'm back at school now.  Renaissance lit/culture looks good--it's focused on travel and speculative fiction of the period, so it should be kind of fabulous.  Stats is going to be just fine.  Linear algebra....bah.  It's already eating my life.  I have no idea what's up with my homework.  And I need to take this class for my minor, so I guess I'll have to just muddle through and stick it out. 

2. My mom bought me a copy of The Book of Common Prayer.  I know there are some Anglicans/Episcopalians on my flist--what would you say one does with such a book?  I'm quite pleased to have it, I'm just not certain what its purpose is.

3.  If you haven't seen it yet, go watch [ profile] saywheeeee 's video Starscape.  It's a Doctor Who-themed song she wrote, sang, and put together herself, and it's gorgeous

4. I'm bored and going through autumn Doctor Who withdrawal.  So let's discuss it!  Leave me your favorite theory, your most beloved moment, your personal canon, or a rec, and let's have a Doctor Who party in the comments!
ladymercury_10: (Amy and Elev--errr)

So I'm fresh off a week of reccing at [ profile] calufrax and apparently can't stop.  Ergo, Doctor Who recs for my flist.  Here are a few of my favorite fanworks--by no means all.  If you have anything you'd like to rec back, I'd love to see it in the comments.
