r/s rec post #6

My dog chewed through my laptop cord today (this is the second one, a friend gave me her spare last time), and I learned that these things are 1.) not especially easy to find, and 2.) REALLY EXPENSIVE!!!!!!!!! It was $65. I looked everywhere and that was seriously the cheapest universal laptop cord in the whole of central Illinois, where you can literally go buy a goat for less.

Do you have any idea how many bags of discount Halloween sour candy I could have bought with that money. Where is the justice??????????????

ONE MORE REC POST:

Lies, Truths, and Other Confessions
Rating: R
Warnings: Cursing, vaguely written sex, alcoholism, drug use, contemplations of suicide
Word Count: 4800
Summary: AU where Dumbledore defeats Voldemort early on in the first war and Sirius loses all sense of direction and purpose in life.
Why you need to read this: This is a canon-divergent AU where things are Definitely Not Okay for Sirius, and I love so much how the author doesn't discount his past or his problems here. He's so lost and so restless--reckless--that you just hurt for him, and his relationship with Remus is not only amazing, but it plants a seed of personal growth that shoots up and blooms. Gorgeous writing and characterization; I'm so in love with this, ohhhh my God.

Sense Memory
Rating: PG
Warnings: none
Word Count: 1000
Summary: For a dozen years, there had been nothing to see, nothing to touch, nothing to remind him of the life that had once been his.
Why you need to read this: I love love love post-Azkaban Sirius, and I loved how the author describes the flood of his senses just after he's escaped. Sense is tied beautifully to his memory, to Remus in particular, and it's as beautiful as it is heartbreaking to see him remember how much he's lost and how much he still wants. MY HEART!!!

Love Kneazle
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Foul language, foul odors, silliness, and a little grossness
Word Count: 2650
Summary: Remus brews a desperate and dodgy potion.
Why you need to read this: I mean, I feel like the title alone ought to be enough to snag you, but at any rate this is hilarious and fun and also manages to be super sweet with a dash of poignant at the same time, which is incredible. I laughed. I laughed hard and I laughed loud and mostly I just really love these two idiots and the way the author tangled them together. ♥
