I just received the NICEST comment, feedbacking my feedback on a truly excellent fic. So now I'm beaming at the whole world, in spite of the fact that work is a cyclone, Brother-in-Law can barely walk, and Young Miss Weaver throws up everything I feed her. My obsessive over-analysis of fic I love pays off!

Also, Avengers: Age of Ultron opens on May 1st. Hopefully it won't suck.

Gawked from [personal profile] cofax7, have a flow chart of reasons not to go to law school. Probably essential reading if you're considering law school, but if you're already a lawyer or already in law school, maybe don't read it. It would be discouraging.

The excellent fic in question, BTW, is Julia Roberts Sits on a Throne of Lies, by [personal profile] smithereen, and it's alternately *hilarious* and poignant. It's also unfinished, I feel I should warn people. It's hockey RPF, a Jonathan Toews/Patrick Kane AU, set in early 2010 shortly after the Vancouver Olympics (during the season that the Blackhawks would later go on to win the Stanley Cup for the first time in decades). I am so very going to hell. I used to have standards, people. I wouldn't read RPF. But then authors I really loved in other fandoms started to write hockey RPF, and I ended up dipping my toe in the waters.

Oh look, the cat threw up again. Where's the paper towel? I'm so glad I have wood laminate flooring instead of real hardwood. She's definitely going for an ultrasound, as soon as my vet clinic connects with the itinerant veterinary radiologist and figures out when she can fit YMW in.

Edited to add: the above is not meant to denigrate people who cheerfully engage in reading and writing RPF. I just had a thing about it for a long time where I was uncomfortable with it, and then I, well, stopped being uncomfortable with it. Except a little guilt remains. But that's my own thing, not anybody else's.

Gawked from [personal profile] aj, have a Chicago primer for fanfic writers. Contains spoilers for Jupiter Ascending, so if you have yet to see JA and think you might want to, best give it a miss. Please note, though, that while the primer contains info about JA, it would be useful for anybody writing in any Chicago-based fandom.

And according to [personal profile] musesfool, Tom McRae has a new album coming out on May 11, 2015. Yay!
