I had such great hopes for this post! It was going to be a list of like 20 awesome Susan things and I would explain why they were awesome and it would all be wonderful. That did not happen.

I tried, guys, I really tried! I bookmarked like forty Narnia fic to read so I could go through them all to find all the Susan-centric gems. Unfortunately I have the attention span of a hyperactive cat and have spent the past six months bouncing from fandom to fandom and occasionally looking at this post guiltily. Today I came to the conclusion that I will never finish this post to my satisfaction so I may as well post it now.

This post is dedicated to [livejournal.com profile] hmsharmony who is awesome and gets how lovely Susan is and how much her narrative totally screwed her over. Still side-eyeing you C. S. Lewis.

No more dreaming like a girl so in love with the wrong world )

Augh, this is so shooort. =( One day I will return to this and add all the fic that I meant to read and rec. One day.

I am nearly through the weeks from hell! I just have to write my English research essay today and hand it in tomorrow and I can finally take a breather. And then start studying for exams because the universe thinks it's hilarious to schedule things so I have them all in the same week (December 7-10). In the interests of giving everyone else a taste of my procrastination fodder I am going to link to some awesome things.

1) [livejournal.com profile] prozacpark's Katherine vid Cheap and Evil Girl is an excellent three minute demonstration of why Katherine Petrova has managed to edge her way into Favourite Character Status this season.

2) Relatives & Relativity - Doctor Who/Sense & Sensibility crossover where Nine meets the Dashwood sisters. Go ahead, it's cool, I'll still be here when you get back.

3)


Not my favourite Bollywood picturization but they are dancing on a moving train. Respect.

4) meloukhia's Glee critiques are basically perfect.

5) I deal with not being able to see the Harry Potter movie by reading every review I can find. [livejournal.com profile] anythingbutgrey does some awesome meta with regards to the movie's use of Holocaust imagery.

6)


This vid made me add Que Sera Sera to my To Watch list. The angst will be delicious. 8)

7) Assimilation

Mai's father argues to the Firelord that the Water Tribesmen can be educated and made into proper sorts of people. So Azulon sees he gets a boy to prove this on.

8) I prefer this translation of Sea of Shadows to the Tokyopop one.

9)


AHAHAHAHAHA. "Goddamn it CUT!"

10) Stephanie Brown summarizes 70 years of DC history. This is adorable.

Those Who Wait This fills in the period between the last chapter of Mockingjay and the epilogue. Consequently there are spoilers so I wouldn't read it if you haven't finished the whole trilogy. That said, if you have you should definitely check it out right away. The Peeta voice is pitch perfect, it sounds exactly like what I imagine he would after the events of Mockingjay. I love how it charts this progress of healing for Peeta and Katniss both; they can't forget what they've been through but they're adjusting to living with it. I also like the brief glimpse of Annie (doing okay! <3) and that it goes with my super secret Gale OTP. :3 Basically I am adopting this fic as my own personal unseen Mockingjay canon.

The Doctor Who finale airs today! I am full of anticipation and would quite like the clock to run a bit faster now. But since that seems unlikely to happen and I am not in possession of a TARDIS I am need of something to do while waiting for the episode. I COULD study for my exam Tuesday but that would be so out of character for me I would be frightened and begin to wonder if I've been secretly been replaced with an Auton. So instead you are all getting an Amy Pond rec post!

Eleven Amy Pond centric recs under the cut. Also some bonus meta on this season of Doctor Who. )

This was a really good timewaster! Especially considering I could not resist the urge to reread and watch everything I just recced. =) The stuff here is just my favourites, for more Amy Pond check out her character tag on my del.ici.ous.
