Things have been pretty quiet for me lately. All of the major stuff I was working on for weeks there have settled down and I've just been hanging out. It's nice, but at the same time, I'm feeling fairly useless right now. After spending hours every day working on the awards and my new comm, it's hard not having anything that I have to do.

Speaking of the Children of Time Awards, voting is coming up soon. Make sure you go vote for your favorite fics and/or authors starting on Thursday (voting for this round runs through the end of the month). Also, if you had a problem with the nomination process, have some suggestions for how to make things run smoother, or just want to tell [livejournal.com profile] shannon730 what a good job she's doing (I highly recommend this option), the official LJ comm for the awards is [livejournal.com profile] children_time.

Since I've had some free time I've actually done a little reading over the past few days. Despite the fact that fanfiction in general has been a major letdown for me over the past few months, I've found a few gems that I thought I'd share:

The first one is actually a shameless plug for my favorite author. Discordant is a multi-chapter story that simply isn't getting enough love. It's the story of Rose, traveling through the different universes, trying to find her proper universe and the Doctor. [livejournal.com profile] sinecure writes Rose really well, and though I'd normally skip a story like this (one that focuses on Rose during a time that she's not with the Doctor), it's quickly become one of my all-time favorite fics. It's the first in a series, and trust me when I say that the whole thing is nothing short of amazing (I should know, I beta it *G*).

The second one is also sort of a shameless plug. When [livejournal.com profile] the_magpye told me Doors We Never Opened was almost finished, I pictured a typical Christmas-fic-exchange-sized fic, not the massive, timey-whimey, post-JE fix-it fic made of awesome that I got. Really, if you read nothing else by her (though I do recommend you read her other stuff too), read this. Every author has a pivotal story, the one that stands out the most to their readers. This is hers.

And finally...anyone who can convince me to read a story that pairs Rose and sex and someone other than the Doctor has to be doing something right. [livejournal.com profile] ladychi has done just that and The Evolution of Rose is worth any initial issues you might have with the pairings. Chi makes it work in amazing ways. For those of you who haven't read anything by her before, her writing style is absolutely gorgeous, and for those of you who still insist that Rose belongs with the Doctor and only the Doctor, there's the promise that it will eventually be a Rose/Doctor fic.
