Bathroom drain is unclog, finally yeah. Pain medication is taken, Costochondritis is a bitch (It felt like I was having a heart attack or a serve panic attack at Target at all places).

My lovely mother found a part-time job and I nervously gathering courage to enroll into school to receive a diploma. Money I wish I had it so I paid for school, looking for a good loan is making sweat and cringe. Horrible researcher, I am truly can't seem to be able to used internet to find important information.

Making a decision to buy a Kindle or save my money for school is tough. Saving money that what I got to do.

My sister made have PCOS, scariness, maybe I shouldn't be afraid but anything medical make me feel scared. Her doctor apportionment is today. If she does have then I have to go get tested and my sister already she didn't like the specialist she seeing.(Test was inconclusive but she has to take metofmin.)

I'm enjoying my experience with pinboard. I’m still taking my time fixing my bookmarks but I very happy that I have all of them. Looking for more people to add my network, my interests tend to change every month so I need to find more multi-fannish people.

Utopia (or here, or here) | [livejournal.com profile] takmarierah [Charles/Erik, R, 77,900 words]
"Erik has succeeded in taking over the world, but mutant utopia has yet to materialize. Charles is his reluctant companion." WIP, last updated: 2011-10-31.

So good, everyone should drop what their doing to read this. There is so much richness in this world and the push and pull of Erik and Charles is done brilliantly, that I seriously have no idea what kind of ending can leave a satisfying conclusion. I can't help be in Charles’s school pitying Erik to anger.

Nine Eleven Ten (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] subtilior [Erik/Charles, Mature, 155,458 words]
Dark!Beauty and the Beast AU. Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time. WIP, last updated: 2011-11-01.

This fic is full of my favorite kind of BRILLIANCE, I love the subtle characterization of Charles, brave, foolish and so many things that you rooting for him. I love how dark this story is and with right mixture of horror and resilience needed to balance things in. Author def. has a unique writing style and I enjoyed reading hir Labyrinth fic that I read recently that enjoyable in its darkness. Go read it you haven’t and don’t let the WIP deter you.

Those plans, however, take a surprising turn thanks to a very unexpected complication.

WIP, last updated: 2011-11-02.

I couldn't resist this fic, I love a good mpreg story that is more drama than crack, with honest characterization, Alex is def. my favorite, and that I enjoyed this one a whole lot.
