I recently finished the "Nightrunners" series by Lynn Flewelling. It was fun! I liked the earlier books better (it took me a while to even finish the last one, but it was a nice series ending.) The books have great h/c, a lot of it that felt "just like in fic," and some that would be OTT even for many fanfics. I liked the relationship between the main characters a lot.
I was very relieved that Thero did not turn out to be evil! I liked him and Seregil and Alec together, and I liked Micum but I loved that the fourth one in the ~prophecy was his daughter Beka and not him. I really liked Beka, and Klia. I was also surprisingly fond of Korathan: his relationship with his sister must have been interesting and complicated, and I had fun imagining him and Seregil together.
I was amused that teleporting almost never showed up again after the beginning and after Nysander died, it's a powerful plot device.
The worldbuilding was mostly fine and nothing special; the dyrmagnos, immortal necromancers, were creepy and cool. I liked the Aurenfaie vow of trust.

For some reason I thought of the "Tales of the Otori" series again that I read many years ago, and I feel like rereading it just so I can write, or at least imagine, fix-it fic for "Harsh Cry of the Heron."
Other next stories on my to-read list: "A long way to a small, angry planet", "Stories of the Raksura", and several long fics.

I was unexpectedly offered to take an html+css class for free this weekend. I feel too tired to actively look forward to it, but it could be interesting, and it'll probably look good on my CV. I'm curious where it'll start, because I know a little bit of html but I have no clue how much "everyone" knows.

Snowflake challenge, day 13: In your own space, write about a moment in fandom that meant a lot to you.
Technically no fannish content, but definitely in fandom: May 26, 2013 (wow, over three and a half years ago), when everything I hadn't been coping with somehow got me to a keyboard and ask for a much-needed hug, and the responses to that gave me the strength to finally get the help I needed. I probably would have gone to a therapist eventually, but I don't know how much longer it would have taken, and having that encouragement and support helped a lot. Ever since then I've known that when I need something like that I can get it, and that's worth so much.
