[stock] when in doubt wear red

forty-winking in the belfry

I'm compiling books like a bandit for a rec/not-rec list, as I've been reading a ridiculous amount these days. Went jaunting through paranormal YA today and fear I've reawoken the savage dodgy-demonology beast; and just as I thought I'd calmed it! Fuck. (Might've had an epiphany, though. Might've run down a flight of stone steps very dramatically in a long skirt so I could more quickly approach a place whereat I could write it all down for myself, might've felt like a hipster Cinderella hitting her midnight, might be ridiculous—wait, might? In any case, my heart has only just calmed, o fuck this story and its claim on my soul, why.) But that's to come. Perhaps when I've finished Gormenghast, which is gargantuan. It's coming, it's coming, it ought to come before I get entirely eaten by A Dance With Dragons, as indeed I inevitably shall—have pre-ordered; am on tenterhooks; shall stay there until it's in my hands. O!

In the meantime, as this is summer o'stories, I'm stealing this meme from my entire flist:

+ Pick one of my icons.
+ I will (try my best to) write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon.

ALLONS-Y.
