Most of you have probably already read these. God knows, I'm always the last one at the drink table. But, here you go:

1. The Neighborly Detective and the Tragic Woobie Widower by Elayna (NC-17)
Detective John Sheppard starts his new life in suburbia and becomessteadily captivated by his neighbor, Dr. Rodney McKay, and his sonTimothy.

2. Failsafes by Luna (PG-13)
The city was full of failsafes. (in the words of [livejournal.com profile] eternalmusings, a disturbing take on Groundhog Day)

3. Bell Curve, or Ladies Night at the Boom Boom Room by Pru (NC-17)
In his rational mind, Rodney knew that following a girl who'd just dumped you into a strip club was really, really pathetic. (BC #1)

*****

And proving my stupidity, can someone tell me something. what does tl;dr mean? I've tried everything in my brain, but nothing seems to work. (and I can hear those of you snickering over that, shut up)

Urgh!

How is it possible that it's 8:00am and I still haven't been able to sleep? It's completely inhuman.

Also? Even though I've watched a couple of movies, watched four episodes of Doctor Who, and read several chapters of fanfic, I STILL have the theme song to Duck Dodgers stuck in my head.

And, thanks to the work of two very lovely ladies, [livejournal.com profile] eternalmusings and [livejournal.com profile] sam_gamgee, I bring you two SGA fic recs.

A Farmhouse in Iowa:
Summary: John inherits a farm, Rodney ends up entirely out of his element, and there is much ado about baseball. Completely AU.

Splinters and Stones:
There's no real summary given, but it's a great Sheppard/McKay/Beckett fic.

I haven't finished either of these yet, but I've read enough of each to know that I'm going to have much enjoyment from them. And I believe you would as well.

Now I'm going to close out word, turn off the computer, and go to bed. Hopefully, this time I'll be able to sleep.

Tonight, I got promoted. Again. Second promotion since the beginning of the year. This is good?

I started out this year (and I don't mind telling you guys this, not like I'm bragging) as Cafe Specialist at work, making roughly $14,500 a year. At the end of January, 2 days after my birthday, I got promoted to Co-Manager Cafe, which brought my pay up to $19,000 a year. Today, when I get to work, I get told that I'm being promoted again. This time, to Co-Manager of the entire bookstore, and will be raised up to $20,500 a year. Good news? In under three months I've gone up $6,000 in yearly pay. Bad news? I have to change locations. I can't stay at my present store, #626, and keep the promotion, I have to move over to store #628.

Which isn't really that bad, I just would not pick to work under the General Manager I'm going to be working under. I mean, don't get me wrong, he's a great guy. I've just heard through the grapevine that he's not all that great a manager. And that he doesn't really do anything other than sit on his butt in the office, answering the phone, or showing the occasional customer to a book they want. But, oh well, that's what us Co-Managers get paid the big bucks for, right? And, in the long run, if I don't like where I'm at, it still looks good on a resume that I can take to Barnes and Noble and get paid probably twice what I make now.

And now for the part Lyndee should skip )

Okay, now progress yourselves out of my bedroom antics and on to the fandomish stuff. I have recs for a few different fandoms that I'm involved in.

BtVS/Angel: Ulterior Motives by [livejournal.com profile] yanagi_wa - A wonderful story that's just getting started. There's the Prologue and Chapter One already up, and it's promising to be a fantastic fic.

Stargate SG-1: The Cost of a Used Spaceship by Marie Blackpool - A truly beautiful story. Plus, it doesn't hurt that I love fics that include the robot SG1.

Stargate Atlantis: General & Dr. Sheppard - For lovers of the long, epic length AU fic. I was given this link just last night, and though I should have gone to bed when I said I was, I kind of got caught up reading this and devoured the entire thing in one sitting. I was a wreck trying to get up for work today, let me tell you.

Supernatural: Don't Know How to Let You Go - OMG!!! I can not stress enough how much I love this pairing. Before this fandom, I'd never really gotten into the whole incest thing (unless you count Xander/Xander). But these two brothers were made to be each other's bitches. I can't say it any better than that.


Hope hope hope you enjoy. I also hope that I can get back to you soon with more recs. But right now, I am foregoing fic to read the second installment in Percy Jackson and the Olympians. You guys should so check out The Lightning Thief. It's a new series by Rick Riordan, and is rumored to be the next Harry Potter. It's that good. I just got the book and I'm already half way through it. I'm totally addicted. So go, read. I swear, you'll enjoy it. And if you don't, you can pretend to sue me.

Night guys.
