Someone please entertain me! I'm at that stage where you have just read some fantastic fic - and you need more - but there isn't any. And all you crave is THAT style of writing and THAT idea (and to a certain extent THAT pairing) and NOTHING else seems right. I was readingscoradh's NextGen fic The Road Next Travelled and its unfinished sequel Three Steps Back and I want more, and I want it now. Scoradh has this amazing character building ability and I have fallen in love with her nextgen characters and the world they live in - she has other fics and I've started some and they seem really good but I'm not in the mood for H/D right now (serious slash overload - possible? appartently!).
I get like this too after finishing any of mad_martha's fics - she is a world creator, her insights to the characters and the details that her fics contain will just blow your mind. After finishing something like Two households or Checkmate you just don't think anything else can match up to that.
So what have I been trying to entertain myself with tonight? Reading my old favourites over at fanfiction.net - seriously!? I had a BAD taste in fics - or maybe just a williness to forgo ICness for instant thrills. I also read a HUGE amount of buffy crossovers (actually I still do now, though I am hoping my idea of a 'good' fic has improved!)
I'm also watching season two of Bones over at surfthechannel - I wanted to watched Studio 60, which I've seen up to episode 16, but they don't have a working link. Bones is a fantastic second choice.
Comment to this post with a subject for a top five (ships, songs, books, etc) you would like to see my answer. I will post my answers in a separate entry. Be as specific or as broad as you'd like.
Entertain me DAMNIT!
