1. Life
Fucking hell, August is over! One of the busiest months for me this year so far. All with going to festivals; having social stuff; searching, finding and worrying for a new room; moving and clearing a whole flat with all the hangups; helping to organise a four-day team meeting for 100 people; working in another city; driving across the country for job interviews; fighting with my dad about money; having drunk emotional and nervous breakdowns & not to forget worrying about masters thesis which should have been due last week.

Now most of the stuff is resolved and I am in my room in the new flat, which can't compare to the old and perfect one as I become more and more high maintenance.

Instead of working on ~all the important stuff I am working through all what happened in fandom and fics and am trying to get a hold on old & new TV shows (September, my dear, you'll give me back a weekly routine by providing a watching schedule).

2. Recs
Here are some fics for which I avoided cleaning moving boxes:

carry it in my heart by [livejournal.com profile] robin_pulaski - an epic Social Network fic which got recced to me and gave me all I need from TSN: a social awkward building-up of a relationship, two people in love and a happy ending.

Trouble with Dreams by [livejournal.com profile] sparkledark - do I really need to rec it? It has my heart

School of Life by [livejournal.com profile] trafficsong - as it often goes, when do one decide to click on a fic? Most often these days I'll definitely open a new tab when I've read something by the author before or when there's an interesting title or summary (why do people decide to post a fic to comms without a summary??).
In this case both didn't apply and especially the title and summary would normally be a scroll-by for me. Somehow the author's name ringed something and the layout is nice to read in.
As it seems there's no happy ending; but who needs that? People are asking for a sequel or another part, but for me this one has a new, different approach. Not all the narrative threads have to be resolved. I like the fragmental design.

And I blame [livejournal.com profile] delires for hooking me onto South Park fic. The first epic one I read was by [livejournal.com profile] formerdinosaur's The Scenic Route (aka [livejournal.com profile] snooter) for which I have so many feelings, but one major point of critique is that it goes on and on. Great for the enthusiastic and addicted reader (aka me) but in my opinion it's not always in favour for the fic itself.
