i'm from earth  
So I haven't been here in a whopping SIX WHOLE MONTHS WOW past-me would be so disappointed

I don't know if there's anybody here that I'm not connected to on another site? but I thought I would come by and let it be known that I am still alive and well

I graduated college in May and my parents bought me a week's vacation to Orlando where I got to see Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and hang out with Lauren before she went back to England and it was amazing.

I spent the summer cleaning my room and driving my brother around and hanging out with Nick and Jacquelyn but mostly it was job-hunting. I currently have a temp position working in the library of a small local college for the semester, which is 90% desk sitting, but it's a paycheck and I have a lot of free time to read and write. The final Nightrunner book comes out in April, so I'm starting a reread of those and they're even better than I remember, this is my favorite series what I am going to do when it's over :(

2013 is hereby the Year of the Podcast because I got hooked on Welcome to Night Vale and Thrilling Adventure Hour and I drive around North County with the windows down emotionally yelling about perfect scientists and faithful martian companions

So yeah. Nowadays life is my temp job, podcasts, reading, and writing. I'm revamping my Gloves Off pilot right now. I can start Writing Wednesdays back up if anyone is still interested??? Or maybe just do everything on Tumblr, that's where I live now. Among other places.

If you like Nightrunner, I bet I can suggest some awesome reads. ;)

I LOVE NIGHTRUNNER and I've been looking for some new book recs! Anything similar to that, or anything you really like, I trust your taste. :) I'm totally buying that queer supervillains book you told me about!

I prefer series to standalone novels, gravitate towards fantasy, and want character relationships that will make me bury my face in the book and yell. Most of all I'm looking for something fun.

OH MY GOSH. Okay. In no particular order...

The Last Herald Mage series - Mercedes Lackey
Lord of the White Hell: Book 1 and 2– Ginn Hale
The Archer’s Heart: Book 1 - 3 – Astrid Amara
Swordspoint, The Privilege of the Sword, and The Fall of the Kings - Ellen Kushner
Aisling Book 1: Guardian – Carole Cummings
Aisling Book 2: Dream - Carole Cummings
Aisling Book 3: Beloved Son – Carole Cummings
Under the Poppy - Kathe Koja (this will be a trilogy; the second book is coming out soon. It's not fantasy, but it's SO FUCKING GOOD)

Those are the trilogies/series that come to mind immediately. I could also suggest a lot of good stand-alones, if you want to branch out. I can suggest, like, a RIDICULOUS number of good books with queer characters. XD
