still fannish [I really should be catching up on e-mail and actual substance.]

I was underwhelmed by the No Limits return-from-hiatus episode and finally started reading the AtPo Angel Season 6.  Their choice to do it in Shooting Script format rather than prose is neat, and i am a big fan of the use of Previously On.  ("Charley," though?  And "Grr Arg" should have an "h," no?)  No Limits won me from the get-go, though it's had patches where i wasn't terribly into it, but the AtPo series grows on me as the episodes go along.

And then of course i had to start reading orlon_window -- masqthephlsphr's post-NFA Connor virtual series.  (Start here and just keep clicking the green Next Entry buttons.)

I've been meaning to read the non-NL series for a while, but i definitely also felt guilty about having absconded from Whedonverse fandom for other pastures.  (I'm not used to being a fandom slut; bite me.)

Whedonverse feels like coming home to me, though -- in a good way.  I'm kinda tempted to use the metaphor "family" -- which, admittedly, could be kinda squicky given all the hotsexfic i seek out and create in that fandom, and look at me stopping with the metaphoring.

I used "Tender is the touch of someone that you love too much" as the tagline for my Osiris Serenity River/Simon 6-drabble series, but listening to the song tonight, it is so Simon/River.
Tender is the night
Lying by your side
Tender is the touch
Of someone that you love too much
Tender is the day
The demons go away
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind

Come on, come on, come on
Get through it
Come on, come on, come on
Love's the greatest thing
Come on, come on, come on
Get through it
Come on, come on, come on
Love's the greatest thing
That we have
I'm waiting for that feeling
I'm waiting for that feeling
Waiting for that feeling to come

Oh my baby
Oh my baby
Oh why
Oh my

Tender is the ghost
The ghost I love the most
Hiding from the sun
Waiting for the night to come
Tender is my heart
For screwing up my life
Lord I need to find
Someone who can heal my mind
Oh, and speaking of Firefly and songs, pseudosimilar's Firefly vid to Salt'n'Pepa's "Whatta Man" is great.

I wanna visit Alaska so i can write Rogue fic.  I have a date with New Orleans this year, though, and that should be good for some fic.
