Res, recs everywhere!

Lots to rec, I've been reading but not posting (my bad).

The contrelamontre challenge this week is to write a story with no dialog, but with interaction. Many people have written moody pieces that don't do a thing for me. Here are three that I think overcome the limitations and work as stories.

hjartad: Implicit, a meditation on Dominic's hands, from many points of view and interior voices, drew me in.

beccaming: Press, ostensibly about piano playing, and really about Dominic and Orlando and life.

alais: Behind Velvet a very hot Sharpe/Harper story of affectionate sex in a tight spot. Set in Bernard Cornwall's Richard Sharpe universe, though a slashy version thereof. One of the few other fandoms I can enjoy: it's not them, it's my weird hangups and lack of pop culture referants.

Lots of good other stories lately, here are just two:

jubilancy: Like a Virgin in which a het!Dom is trying to cope with a very very gay Elijah.

cinzia: Good Morning a feel-good story of a successful Viggo-Sean relationship.

If there's a lot of Dominic this week, it's because the LOTR Fan Club magazine had an exceedingly funny interview with him. If you haven't read it, I recommend it - (see scanned pages). Someone typed up the section where Dom talks about his 18 favorite things about Billy, but I can't find the URL.

Beizy wrote a very funny fic taking off on the article, in the form of a phone call from Billy to Dom Favorite Things

blythely directed me to a very silly page proposing LOTR as an allegory of getting a PhD. The allegory works for me (Gandalf as the advisor, Elrond as dept. chair). I know so many who have gone through this, and some that just gave up...

PPS I am doing pretty well, though spending too much time on Lotrips. Got actual work done! Sent invoices! Started talking about new contracts and picking up old ones! Went to lunch and swimming with my best friend. I remember having a life, it was good, and will be again.
