It’s October! How fast is this year going by? I just realized today that not only is NaNo coming up, and for once, I may not even be able to participate, let alone try to participate and fail, but if I’m going to bring back Wintry Remix for a second year, it’s time to get going on it. So keep an eye out for more information about that coming soon.
Anyway, it’s review time, and for this month I’ve reviewed Dividing Reality by Selina. You can find that listed under the Strong Enough To Break era.
Even more exciting, I have my first Middle of Everywhere era review this month. Elizabeth has reviewed Remember Me by KT.
Check back soon for more about any potential holiday hanfic plans!
Things have been quiet around here, I know. First things first: the Anthem era hall of fame poll has been extended quite a bit more than I meant for it to be. Oops. But if you haven’t voted yet, you have two more days! So go here and make your vote count.
Secondly, the reviews for September have finally been posted! They were delayed too, again for a variety of reasons. I’ve reviewed Behind Walls by Cad. In the same time it took me to do that, Elizabeth has managed to review Beneath My Skin by Aimster, Cricket by KT and Kindred: A Day In The Life, 1998 by Aimster. You can find all four of those reviews in the Anthem era section.
Keep an eye on this space for more updates, hopefully less delayed than these.
This month, I went back to the beginning, and finally read and reviewed Close Your Eyes But Don’t Sleep by Lauryn. You will, naturally, find that review listed in the Middle of Nowhere era.
I also received a wonderful guest review from Aimster. You can find her review of Addicted by Abby Young listed in the Anthem era.
Also, don’t forge to check back Friday! That’s when the massive Anthem era Hall of Fame poll begins, and I’m going to need all of you to help out with it.
As I said on Twitter earlier today, I know I’ve been really silent here lately. Things have been super stressful in my real life, and unfortunately, I’ve let it affect the fic stuff. Fic can be an escape, and it is a lot of times, but sometimes when the stress gets too far under my skin, too emotional… it’s tougher to turn all of that off, or to even effectively channel that into fic.
Anyway! Enough about my life.
I’ve got one new review for you guys this month–Lost Without Each Other by KT. You’ll find that listed under the Anthem era.
I hope to soon start posting MOE era reviews, too, but I don’t suppose we can declare this new era officially started until the greatest hits album comes out (last I heard, September 8). I hope that date is correct, because I’m using it to plan when and how to update the Hall of Fame. I will be posting more about that within the next month, and I also hope to have some spotlights for you next month! So stay tuned for all of that.
I know, I’ve been really quiet for the past… yikes, it’s been a month. I can blame both Tulsa and work for that, as well as personal bullshit you guys don’t care about. But I’m back, and I have some reviews for you guys to make up for it!
Thanks to a wonderful fellow fan for sending it to me, I was able to review In Praise of the Vulnerable Man by Abby. You can find that under the Shout It Out era, and yes, that link does point to a downloadable PDF of this classic Zaylor fic.
Elizabeth also contributed reviews of the last two (for now) Kindred series fics: Kindred 11: The Psychopath and
Kindred 12: The Family, both by Aimster and listed under the Anthem era.
That’s it for now, and you can probably expect me to go quiet again as Camp NaNoWriMo begins next month.
