For the past couple of weeks, I have been starving for slashfic or, jeez, any well-written erotic something or other. I've got things I've bookmarked and read 100 times but nothing new. Any suggestions? I am generally not into het stuff, but slash, m/m, hermaphrodites, mpreg, etc., is all good. Just... GOOD stuff! I don't have any trigers, so feel free to suggest anything. I just have this deep craving for, um, juiciness, and while I'm enjoying reading Earthsea, it is distinctly unjuicy* and it's just bad timing for me.
* Anybody seen any Ged/Vetsch slash? There *must* be some, somewhere, right? Because the situations they were in were even more slashable than Frodo & Sam!
I'm really getting tired of not having any vacation time.
Last year I was at ARC and wasn't allowed to take any time off for six months. After I was let go, I was basically too poor and too in need of a job to go anywhere, although I did make a short trip to Germany and home for Christmas.
Then since February I've been here at Emory but for the first few months I was a temp, earning no vacation. Finally in May I became staff and my real benefits kicked in, but vacation is accummlating so slowly it infuriates me. I used up one "floating holiday" so I could go to Montreal with Caleb, then used up a vacation day to go visit my parents in early July. Which left me with no vacation time!
Since then I've been keeping my butt here in Atlanta despairing of ever being able to take a real vacation, i.e. something more than a long weekend. I want to have at least a week off so I can go to Europe and see my friends and favorite places again. But alas, I will have to use up one of my vacation days when I visit my family for Christmas (fortunately I get Christmas Eve and the holiday itself off), which will leave me with a whopping one day vacation. And then I'll have to start accummulating from scratch again. I think I earn about one day a month, so maybe I can go somewhere by next summer!
What's especially irritating is that right now Caleb has all this vacation time he needs to use and even conferences in Europe to go to, so he's planning a trip to England (conference) and then in December he wants to go to Germany and visit Martina, possibly also an old classmate of his who's in Zurich.
Where do I want to go? Well, I'm dying to see Storm again, but not sure England would be my top choice for a visit. I'd really like to do a trip to either Berlin or Hamburg / N. Germany, since those are new places. I hope Caleb and I can go to Berlin together!
Yeah, it's my pity party.
