( Me in a nutshell...Collapse )
( My masterfic list...Collapse )
My entire family spent the morning at the local judicial center gathered in a courtroom before the judge. Everyone was smiling and laughing. The judge even invited all the kids to sit on his desk and play with his gavel. The procedure was just a formality. Everyone involved had already agreed to the outcome.
In the end, the judge declared my sister's two newest foster children to be part of our family. Kori and Kyler (ages 7 and 6) received their official new names. They're ours! After almost 3 years of indecision and uncertainty, these children can finally relax into their future lives.
They walked around the whole day with huge grins on their faces.
Dean runs his fingers along the damaged edges of the ring. After opening countless bottles, the ring has become rough and frayed, rubbing his skin raw. He'll probably toss it out soon; maybe replace it with another, maybe not. He's not sure yet. Fact is, he's reluctant to get rid of it. This old ring may look like just a band of cheap metal plated in gold, and it is. But it's more than that too. It's memories. All the beers he's shared with his brother or with his dad. Relaxing after a hunt. Laughing. Being a family. Good memories.
So, I recently joined spn_bunker thanks to the postings some of flister made about this community's commentfic meme. You know me... I can't stay away from a good commentfic meme. They're an addiction. I only added one prompt, which shows some constraint on my part, yes? Heehee. But the community looks like fun.
In poking around to see what other gems they offer, I found this awesome meme. Check it out!
And, yeah, most of the fics I'm reccing are older. Most I've recced before. I haven't had the time I used to have for reading fics.
By the way, this thing took a whole lot longer to write up than it probably should have. Because I can't just rec a fic. I have to reread it first! Just to make sure it's worthy of a rec, right? A sacrifice I'm willing to pay for you, my dear friends. :D
Look! A meme! Yay!

01. Earliest show you remember getting into.
The first show I followed was Young Guns. At first, it was simply an excuse to bond with my little sister over something... anything. Then we both grew to truly love it. (Note, I have since watched again as an adult and don't know what I saw in it back then. Some things should remain beloved memories.)
02. First anime watched.
Don't watch any.
03. A show you've been meaning to finish.
Until recently, it was Smallville and Gilmore Girls, but I managed to get caught up on both. I'd like to see all of the new Battlestar Galactica and Hawaii Five-O. I also never started the new "V" series but wanted to. Does that count?
04. 2 shows you abandoned.
The Strain and Once Upon a Time (though this one actually looks good. It conflicted with something I liked more, and at that time I didn't have a DVR. Had to cut something, so this was it.)
05. A series you're currently watching.
Fall lineup includes:
The Last Ship
Hollywood Game Night
And new shows I'm trying this Fall:
