RL has been crazy as usual, hence the lack of activity on LJ, and worse, the irregular checking of the flist. This makes me very sad as it always brings a smile to my lips as well as sunshine to my heart when I do find the time to check-in.
I've been uncharacteristically preoccupied recently with fics dealing with NYC and fashion, which I blame entirely on Devil Wears Prada fic and watching Gossip Girl.
All of the fic at dvlwears_prada
is amazingly good. I haven't been as diligent as I wanted to be about leaving feedback for the writers. I find that unless I can leave a comment right after reading a fic, I end up not coming back to it. This doesn't work when I have to catch moments here and there to read, often from my smartphone, which leaves me with no time to post a comment. *Must figure out how to fix this as dwp writers deserve feedback*
There's now a full folder of Prada fic on my smartphone, some of my favorites:
Any story by somniesperus
is totally worth reading, some of the best femslash fic I've read. She can do everything right: plot, smut, humor, angst. 'She likes a prizefight'
is a great place to start. I also have a real fondness for 'Business before pleasure'
. It's bittersweet but wonderful to see how playful Andy is with Miranda even if she is clueless about why. 'Stranded'
is a little gem. It's got plot, local color, pr0n and humor. There are more stories in this series.
I'm also a big fan of kosmos8
. My fave may be 'Something in Common'
where the twins try to figure out where Andy and Miranda stand on the big questions of the time. It's clever and fun to see how the twins react to their mother's relationship with Andy.
ETA: How could I forget? 'Uninvited'
where Andy's parents meet Miranda despite Andy's best efforts. Breezy, wonderfully in character, hilarious fluff.
Also: Gossip Girl is the crack. See below the cut.( It's enough when I say it's enough )
That's all :).
