So because I clearly needed stuff to distract me in October, I signed up for two fic exchanges (it's Dream's fault, anyway) and, here are two of my gifts!

For the Les Mis Holidays Exchange 2015:

The Changeling Forest and the Hundred-Faced Man - Teen and Up - Javert & Jean Valjean / Javert/Jean Valjean - Second person PoV - Take the Tam Lin fairytale, take the Brick, and shake. Pour into glass and garnish with allusions historical, literary, and religious.


rough mind, gentle heart - Teen and Up - Javert/Jean Valjean / Javert & Jean Valjean / Cosette Fauchelevent/Marius Pontmercy / Enjolras/Grantaire / Enjolras & Grantaire / Ambiguous or Implied Relationship(s) - Take Catskin, take The Firebird, and take the philosophies on morality and governance from the Brick. Shake vigorously and well. Pour into glass and top a mixture of Hugo’s writing style mixed with that of fairytales.

Go forth and readinate, if it is to any of your tastes!

In an attempt to get back into the habit of posting here a bit more, I'll try to do the 100 day song challenge! I will be AFK for some days, so it might be a little choppy, sometimes, but. Better try and fail than not try at all?

So, first one.

A song you know all the lyrics to.

I'll take Amit's example and do one song in English, and one in Bulgarian, because why not?

Savage Garden: Crash and Burn and a song from an oldish Bulgarian movie (not using the original film video, because somewhat out of context character suicide, though I can link, if anyone wants black and white footage.)

Also, just because, Wednesday Reads notes: I've discovered that Les Miserables is actually kind of lovely to read in French. And my French is really not quite on the level for me to expect reading to be pleasing. Who'd have thought? And, on that note, Javert/Valjean fic rec, new chapter will likely be coming up tomorrow.
Other things: I am enjoying the Lunar Chronicles, even if a lot of the characters are teenagers and augh... Also, have started re-reading the Wheel of Time books, which got interrupted by re-reading the Swords of Riverside because a friend inhaled the first two books and a slew of the short stories, so clearly I needed a refresher...
Brandon Sanderson's Firefight reminded me that I kind of like his main character a lot, and had me wondering why I took so long to start reading, though [personal profile] starflarker's reaction to the end of Steelheart might be a clue. I don't honestly remember.
... oh, and I love love love the Young Wizards series. Surprising exactly nobody.
And also A Darker Shade of Magic, a relatively new fantasy (first book of... series) by V. E. Schwab. Lovely worldbuilding, and, well. Characters intensity, I like.
A few lovely things I'm looking forward to are coming out in the fall, as always.
