What I've Been Reading - W/E 01 MAR 2019
Finished off The Body in the Bath House and put that in the bye-bye bag; started off Damned Whores and God's Police by Anne Summers (Penguin 2002 revised edition, ISBN 0-14-028876-7)
Still plugging away at Frederica, but I'm having to put it on the side for Madame Bovary for my uni studies.
Dickens, Charles (1836). Sketches by Boz, London, (publisher unknown), "A Visit To Newgate".
Earnshaw, Stephen (2010). Beginning Realism, Manchester & New York, Manchester University Press, pp14 - 37 (Chapter 1)
Plus the first 166 pages of Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert (Penguin 2003 edition, ISBN 978-0-140-44912-9). I have to be at least halfway through the book by the beginning of the week after next (university week 3, this was week 1).
(I still have a chapter out of "North and South" by Elizabeth Gaskell to be reading as well, plus another chapter of the book for my creative writing course).
New Game + by Tayani - P5 AU WIP, the truth continues to out.
Flunking by volti - P5 WIP; more family stuff
A Dream We Found Huddled Under a Cloak of Stars by AyuOhseki - P5 AU WIP; and a knock-down, drag-out brawl ensues.
To Catch a Tiger Cub, One Must First Enter the Tiger’s Lair by AyuOhseki - P5 AU WIP; stripping for fun and privacy
Phantom Stardust by TheWabbajackX - P5 WIP, covering the parts of the game from December through February.
Don’t Make Me Delete This Chatroom by Dots - P5 chatroom AU WIP - this episode is all about eggs, for some reason.
Just Like New by Piano - FF7 AU WIP - the one where Cloud is an android who wants to protect his human friends.
A Kind of Magic by XpaperplaneX - Final chapter of a WIP. Overall, I was a bit disappointed with this one, mainly because it was mostly written as PWP, but then tried to grow a plot at the very end, with very little set-up or discussion anywhere else in the fic.
Crimson by Dowdz - P5 WIP retelling which is getting steadily more and more AU. Grim and gritty retelling, I think is where the author is going here.
Once More, With Feeling by beesandtoes - P5 Groundhog Day AU WIP. Maybe there's a way out of the loop...
It’s a Compliment, Really by Moczo - P5 Porn parody AU, still hilarious, still a hoot, and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next.
Involuntary Downtime by Muccamukk - Marvel Avengers Adventures Steve/Tony hurt/comfort fic. Cute and nice.
Resistance by WritingSoul - P5, a bit of a look at what might possibly provide resistance to "lust" attacks.
perhaps even friends by hirokiyuu - P5 New Game+ AU WIP - this time it's Goro Akechi who gets offered the chance to try the whole business over again and see what happens when he changes things.
Lucky Cat by Regenbogen - P5 AU WIP - the protagonist is a were-cat. So far the execution seems to be living up to the idea.
I should note that a lot of these fanfics landed in my lap on my Monday or Tuesday - was there a public holiday in the USA on Monday this week?
So that's what I've been reading this week... and I've also been trying to clean the house in time for a rental inspection on Thursday morning next week, and come up with ideas for a presentation about living independently while autistic and how this might differ from doing so while neurotypical (presentation happens in uni week 4, so I have a couple of weeks to pull things together). Everything happens at once around here...
