Saturdays are great, aren't they?

What a nice day. I woke up, posted porn, made a big breakfast, read some porn, took a long nap, read some more porn, made dinner, read more porn. Every day should be so peaceful.

And there's some really great stuff out there! I've read awesome Dead Poets' Society wankfic, lots and lots of hot HP stuff, some gorgeous Atlantis fics, and even several original pieces that knocked my socks off. Now I wish I'd bookmarked the ones I liked so I could rec them, but that would have required foresight and, well, my brain's taking a holiday too. But one I definitely recommend is "Tranquilo", a Burnt Money fic that just broke my heart. Oh, and if you haven't yet read [info]sarcasticchick's wonderful SGA/Torchwood x-over, you definitely should check it out. You can find all the rest at [info]bbtp_challenge.

You know, I think today finally broke the grip that LJ's had on me. I've been going to IJ first, reading it, and then heading over to LJ to read my flist hold-outs. But when I went over today, I spent about 5 minutes flying through, realising that the only thing that interested me were these cool goddess icons, and came flying back to IJ where I've been amused all day. *hugs flist*

However! I do have one small gripe. WTF is up with this "highlight to read the warnings" trend?** Do they think they're being sneaky and won't get caught by people looking for Very Bad Things™ in their fics? Sorry, but that's not how the Internet works. It's still text, even if it's white text, and it's still going to show up in a search.

But that's a small annoyance on an otherwise perfectly pleasant evening. Hope y'all are all enjoying your weekends!

ETA: And btw, I'm not talking about big spoilery warnings that give away things like "death of a major character." No, the ones I've seen today include things like:

* Unbeta’d, femmeslash crack
* Minor in a sexual situation...dripping come?
* Male/male sex

ETA2: Okay, I screwed up -- the highlighting was how [info]bbtp_challenge requested headers be formatted. Aaaand I guess that means I didn't follow directions. *facepalms*

Now, I have been seeing more highlighting recently, before BBTP, but hopefully most of it will go away now.
