Before I turn in for sleepy-times, I just have to pimp out a fic I found about six months ago... and have read about twice a month ever since. IT'S THAT GOOD.

Hunter's Moon

This is a Kakashi/Iruka one-shot that really takes a hard look at the violence and deception that's pretty much the way of the Ninja. But don't worry, it'll have an ending that will satisfy. And the action is top notch. One of these days, when I get my butt in gear and make a rec list for Naruto fic, this will be at the top of the list.

Just read it!

(And don't forget the companion piece: End Mission.)

Um. Okay, so I was feeling a little uninspired today (stressful day tomorrow) and I decided to go to the local Barnes and Noble to get my kicks reading newly published books for free. I read:

Neil Gaiman's: The Problem With Susan -- Lame.
Avatar: The Pandora survival field guide -- Also lame.


Finally, I picked up a book called. Strange Brew, which was a collection of short stories. I turned to the first: Seeing Eye by Patricia Briggs.

Um...

So stop me if this sounds a little familiar to you. There's a witch called Moira who is a small statured blind woman with black hair. Apparently, her one eye that is left (which is useless) is a shade of green. She also uses magic in some ways to sort of 'sense' things around her. Her blindness is also the source of her well of magic, apparently.

The other character is Tom. Tom's a werewolf. He's also a sort of a hot-head with gold-brown eyes (Briggs' description, not mine), and scaring on one side of his face due to a fae attack and...

... Yeah, at this point I realized I didn't care what else happened in the story. I was reading one of my favorite OTP's. Modern Toph/Zuko FTW!

Anyway, I totally recommend Strange Brew. Or at least, the first story. I think it could have been a little fleshed out some more (perhaps some bending thrown in there for laughs?), but it was a good way to waste a half-hour. Especially if you have that particular visualization going on in your head, like me.

Clearly I need to get out of fandom a little more often.
