Also I still read a lot, when I really should be writing (writing writing). Or editing. Based on various recs in people's journals, I'm reading the Steerswoman series by Rosemary Kirstein, which has wonderful worldbuilding. Also trying Just One Damned Thing After Another (first in the St Mary's time travel series) by Jodi Taylor. Not sure I'll finish the Jodi Taylor book - it's engaging to a degree but very gen with hints of looming het in an English tea and biscuits way. Fanfiction's kind of ruined me for works with no, or unconvincing, sexual tension. Not that there's any slash in the Steerswoman but there's a great central friend-pairing between the two key women, Rowan and Bel, and the worldbuilding and underlying plot arc are just so great.
In SGA, I'm enjoying canis_lupus's Ex Patria series (Decade and Children of Pegasus). CoP is risky, being a WIP, but the author's updating about weekly, so fingers crossed.
Sadly, I'm going to have to give up on modding the SGA Reversebang or some new variant of that challenge. I just don't have the energy for it, and no co-betas. I'll post about it on the Noticeboard soon. Maybe someone else will pick it up.
Still arting away in between the rest of it, not that I can afford the time for it right now until we hit August, when the worst deadline'll be done. I'm reccing Mad Max Fury Road art this month as well, over at fanart_recs on DW.
Finally, speaking of writing and deadlines, is there anyone out there who'd be prepared to beta a very tropey John/Ronon genderswap fic for me, girl!Ronon, NC-17 and no AO3 warnings? The draft should be done tomorrow - it'll be about 10,000 words (as opposed to my OTHER deadline fic that HAS to be at least 10,000 words and most definitely isn't. Yet.) No mad rush - the posting date's the 19th I think. Any offers very much appreciated!
