I slowly fixing my bookmarks on Pinboard, and taking a break from it for now. I don't like the look of the (save on delicious) bookmarklet, still using my other Delicious account to save to-read fics, omg there so much to read but I feel exhausted.
LJ's new look, I don't like the new comments page, makes me not want to comment over there when I read fic and I don't like the font changes either. I don't know what LJ is trying to become and I don't want to follow it any more. (Just makes me all sad that their breaking it own usefulness.)
I'm beta testing the new create entries page and right not having any problems and I like that I can customize it to my preferences.
I had a lovely b-day, mom bought me a chicken biscuit even though she woke me way to early to eat it but it all love. Best parents in the world, and I re-organizing/fixing my ebooks for my Kindle.

♥ Utopia (or here, or here) | 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) | 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.

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.
I'm reading all over the place. I really don't know what I want to read right now. Read some Final Fantasy VII fics and one great Pride and Prejudice Genderswap AU.
