FANDOM: Chronicles of Narnia
FIC LINK: Into Something Rich and Strange
AUTHOR LINK: [ profile] edenfalling
RATING/WARNING(S): General, no content notes apply
MAIN CHARACTERS: Susan Pevensie, Mer-woman

FIC SUMMARY: "The siren is a creature of reflections, born of lightning on the winter sea," the mer-woman said, her tail fins twitching in signs Susan had no skill to read. "Cold and light feed its power and no being born of the sea can gainsay its command, though we who are female can at the least resist its lure. You are a Daughter of Eve, born of dreams and flesh. Your power comes from the warmth of blood and the darkness of the beating heart; the siren has no strength against that magic. You must close your eyes and dream the enemy into the final dark."

RECCER'S NOTES: I kind of shudder-love this story. Susan fixes things, and the ocean is deceptive and threatening.

Why this piece is awesome: I absolutely love this work. It's so bold and bright.

The body language of Bert and Gerard, the sweeping curves of the mic cables, and the way the lyrics are worked into the whole composition, all makes for an incredibly dynamic and intense work. It really showcases why nezumi-zumi is one of the best artists in the fandom at the moment.

FANDOM: Kuon/Fatal Frame
FIC LINK: To See the Flowers Spread and Spring
AUTHOR LINK: [ profile] elwing_alcyone
RATING/WARNING(S): General/Major Character Death
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete/1509
MAIN CHARACTERS: Utstuki (Kuon), Hinasaki Miku(Fatal Frame)

FIC SUMMARY: A meeting on a mountainside.
For no_true_pair. Prompt: there are no strangers under cherry blossoms. Title pinched from Sir Orfeo.

RECCER'S NOTES: It's a sweet little fic based after the end of Fatal Frame, and a couple of centuries after Kuon. It has spoilers for the endings of both. Miku makes an unexpected friend.

Also, sorry if this appears twice. I hit return while editing tags and it published before it was ready.

Why this piece is awesome: This is an especially scary looking Godzilla emerging from the sea - reminds me of "Alien" for some reason. I also like the distant (but not distant enough to be safe!) city lights in the background.

Adapted from a cold salad in Leanne Brown's Good and cheap.

What you need and what you do with it )

I'm assuming this will store & keep overnight and be tasty cold. Note, the broccoli is still crunchy - if you prefer soft broccoli, perhaps steam in the microwave for a few min first.

iamshadow: John Barrowman cradling a cup of coffee possessively (Coffee)
[personal profile] iamshadow
Survived the week away, got home fine apart from one ten minute complete stop delay halfway over the mountains. The EDS conference was excellent, all family and friend interactions were pleasant and drama free, and I ran into an old high school friend I hadn't seen in probably 13 years and reconnected with her, so that was amazing and random and really really lovely. The only thing we really didn't do was see Justin and Aiden, because the day they were at Mum's was right in the middle of the conference.

We made Jackie a birthday cake and it was AMAZING. Really, really successful, despite wrestling with Mum's new oven. The Muddiest Chocolate Vodka Mud Cake (Gluten Free) by Tanya Zouev. We made it with three blocks of Green & Black's Organic Milk Chocolate and nearly a whole cup of Stiffy's Jaffa Cake Vodka (which we got as a gift from Catherine years ago but not really gotten around to drinking much of). So much deliciousness. We bought double cream and Blue Ribbon triple tub (vanilla icecream/strawberry icecream/raspberry sorbet flavours) to put on the side. Awesome.

Since getting home, I haven't just sat on the couch, because I sort of had a plan before we even pulled up outside our house. Because Mum's fridge froze our vegetables including zucchini and carrots absolutely solid (seriously, there were ice crystals inside the carrots) I have put on a pot of everything soup to use the veg that got damaged that will hopefully mean we don't have to do meals for the next couple of days. I lit the fire, got wood up too keep it going, got herbs from the garden to put in the soup later, and put everything from the cooler bags away in the fridge and freezer. Now I plan on just poking the soup some more, knitting a little, and reading fanfic because I haven't done much of that over the last few days.

I downloaded everything in Sydney. Literally, almost. We have weeks or even months worth of new stuff to watch, and I finally have the handful of episodes I was missing from a few things we had already watched most of, like Ultimate Spiderman and Avengers Assemble.

We went to JB Hifi and I got all of Inspector Morse in four box sets for $51 in Newcastle. Knowing Mum would want the same deal, I went to the Penrith store, and they had the sets, they were just more expensive. I price queried, and the ticketing was right, but the woman said if I had the docket she'd price match, So I went back to Mum's, got my bag from Newcastle, and sure enough, she price matched, and it saved Mum $24. So now, I've just got to get Lewis 2-7, and then I'll have everything that's been released (pending Endeavour S2 and Lewis S8, naturally). This makes me incredibly happy. Now, if only I could find Poirot and Marple for an affordable price. ($36-$40 for a four episode season is not affordable, when there are thirteen seasons of Poirot and five of Marple. That's over $700.)

I finished the jumper for Nykki, I just might do a few more inches on the neck. I finished a pair of Marywarmers mitts for myself in Lincraft Lullaby, and I've started a pair of Jeck socks in the same yarn because all of our socks within a very short space of time developed holes. Emma has a lot of darning to do. Plans for the next couple of months involve mainly a couple of shawls, stuff to sell at the October market, and socks, because I am too in love with handknit socks to ever go back to shop-bought.

We'd like to collapse in a little heap and not do anything for a week, but we're going back to Sydney on Saturday for Luie's birthday on Sunday. We missed it last year, and I know it'll mean a lot to Mandi if we go, so we're going to do our damnedest. It'd be a down one day, back the next kinda deal, which can be rough, but if we need to, we can stay an extra day without it breaking the bank, hopefully.

It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have four volunteer reccers who signed up for August with these fandoms:

* Elementary ([personal profile] dirty_diana)
* Pacific Rim ([personal profile] mific)
* Supernatural ([personal profile] omens)
* Yoroiden Samurai Troopers ([personal profile] turlough)

So we already have a few recs too look forward to in August, but it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only ONE reccer has volunteered for September, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for August, September or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of July. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Nightmares", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)
