Lovely lovely birthday presents, I must share

music: John Renbourn

Technically my birthday (Pacific time) and I'm a happy girl.

Such presents!

My darling virtual little sister (it's a long story), jubilancy wrote me a fabulous Viggo/Billy ficlet. It doesn't need explicit smut, it's fantastic with just implications. It's perfectly oblique and I adore that. It's got the Viggo internal voice just right, and his confusion, mumbling and head-bumping. I'm also enchanted by Billy's responses, his amused tolerance of weird!Viggo, and continuing interest despite everything. Thank you so much, dearest.

Plus, it gives me a chance to mention billyviggo, my new project. Join! Write fics! Make recs! Find Billy/Viggo pictures, 'cause I haven't been able to.

oneangrykate wrote me such a funny Billy/Pippin crack!Fic, I'm still giggling. Horny little Pippin! Tolkien is spinning like a turbine :-) Thank you!

~
And my slashababy, unavoidably delayed, was so worth the wait. Don't Look Back by kiltslave, Billy/Elijah present, Billy/Callum Keith Rennie in memory, NC-17.

It's wonderful, exactly the kind of thing I love. It slides into the flashback very subtly, and it's painful and intense and just right. The way it shows the teenage Billy is beautifully sympathetic, without romanticizing or sentimentalizing him. I tend to avoid crossovers, and I've never heard of Callum Keith Rennie, but it worked really well for me. I like the way his actions are balanced: he doesn't kiss and he leaves too fast, but he also is careful and safe with virgin!Billy. It's clear he's not evil, more selfish and uncaring. I'm a sucker for a happy but not soppy ending, so that was just right for me, very satisfying.

i haven't read the fic - i am woefully behind on reading - but callum keith rennie was in a canadian film called last night. it was a part of the year 2000 film project, and it's just a gem of a film. written and directed by don mckellar, for whom i have bigbig love.

(and happy birthday, m'dear!)

Thank you sweetie, I'm so not a film person which makes the whole fandom thing even odder. But of course, I'm a Tolkien-fan from way back... Watching a few more movies these days!

Happy Birthday! Though have sort of slid out of this fandom recently, my heart is still vaguely in the right place, and so I shall scurry off to read Viggo-goodness ... meanwhile, have a wonderful day!

Thank you!

I'm taking the day off too, and oh it will be nice.

Kidlet loves your Himalayan poppies, and is asking for some. I swear, I'm going to bundle her into the car and bring her up to see you and yours sometime soon. Are weekends good for you?

Thank you sweetie! No need to write for me, though if you ever want to start, I remember vividly how it feels, and would be happy to help. You gave me nifty icons but I lost track of them and feel like a dork. I may be using them right now...
