krait: a sea snake (krait) swimming (Default)
I generally keep my real life out of my fandom, but I feel like the new year is a good time to cross the streams and provide a bit of a general "state of the Krait" update.

Bullet points? Bullet points. )

Well, I'm falling behind on my resolution to post more, already; fandoms to the rescue!

Guess who just got Kings Rising and devoured it in a matter of hours? That's right, this snake! What a great finale - the juxtapositions went a fair way toward letting everyone have some "resolved" feelings about their past conflicts.

More spoilery comments below the cut. )

I've also been rewatching the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime lately, and have just about decided - after browsing a whole lot of fic and having to skim over all the manga-verse and Brotherhood-verse choices - that it's time to pick up one or both of those, too. There's just not enough fic, especially longfic, for the 2003-verse! Not sure yet which I'll go for first; it'll probably come down to "whom do I know that will loan me theirs" and/or "which can I manage to download first." So we'll see!

Fellow FMA fans on my flist, which did you like best? Where would you recommend starting? Do you have any fic recs for me, either for now (from 2003-verse) or for later (after I've started the manga/Brotherhood)? I can hardly wait to have another thing to squee about!
krait: snake with mouth open, "laughing" (snake: ha ha)
So I went and bought myself something, because I was reminded of it recently.

krait: "faith and fairy tales" - Sydney (Vagrant Story) (sydney)
I, erm, don't know if I've ever mentioned this, but I am a HUGE FANGIRL of Freece's "Captive Prince" original-fic novel, and chapter 26 has been posted!

If you haven't read it: why not? :D Seriously. Yes, it's a WIP, but so far Freece has been extremely reliable and dedicated; and the writing is seriously (I cannot stop using that word) amazing. Freece has promised there will be an actual made-of-trees version when it's finished, and I will be buying multiple copies because this story? Completely deserves it. This is the kind of story I have looked for in vain on the fantasy shelves, and even incomplete it's better than four out of five of the fantasy novels I've read recently.

Slash (definite, actual slash, not just slash-potential) fantasy novels with cultural worldbuilding and antagonistic heroes, a wrongly-enslaved prince, and epic battles? SO MUCH YES, and if you haven't read it, go and do so! (Complete warnings for those who want them are here.)
