This morning I made some leg warmers out of my old sports socks, because I could literally not feel my ankles anymore. AND I WAS INDOORS. I am typing this entry with fingerless gloves on. Ugh.
I was kind of hoping coming back from New Zealand would be easier than this. There, summer is nearing its end, and I hoped that coming back here spring would already be setting in. No such luck. There was ice on the pond this morning, FIA.
What also didn't help was that I went straight back to work a day after I came back, and spent the first three days of work nearly falling asleep at my desk in the middle of the day. I obviously underestimated jetlag.
I did manage to see the latest episode of Supernatural, though, and can I just say FTW?( Dean wears make-up like a painted whore, and Sam can't act to save his life: it's another fun-filled weekend with the Winchesters!Collapse )
And now for the Return Of The Fic Of The Week, which in the spirit of things is another Supernatural one. Unlike the episode, though, this is pretty heavy stuff and not for the faint of heart. BUT SO WORTH IT. It's called Paradisi//Inferno
and was written by an anonymous author in response to a prompt up on deancastiel
When Dean goes to Hell, Castiel is sent forth to retrieve his soul from the Pit. His journey lasts for forty years, and is not without obstacles. The Love:
This, I think, is the ultimate story of Dean's rescue from Hell. That Castiel was there the whole time, suffering with him as he searched for him, is such a fantastic concept. What is almost even better is the author's writing style. It is disturbingly graphic and amazingly poetic, often within the same sentence. It's gorgeous and horrific in equal measure, and just so, so powerful. And the characterisation, GOD. Dean's and Castiel's characters, even when they hardly have any lines, are so, so dead on. Just... I cannot put it into words. GO READ, NOW.The Rest:
Just a heads-up: the R rating on top is for graphic descriptions of the non-fun kind, kids.
Anyway, off to bed now. Night!
