i have been mostly lolling along at this whole anthology thing. but i'm not gonna lie, i got a little misty-eyed when i read this.
Thanks to all of the people who read this journal, because you are the ones who make it a fandom cafe, you're the ones who make it special. I'm so happy you're all here. Thank you.
okay, enough of that. Yesterday I read Claudia Gray's Evernight!
Three Things of note:
1. Claudia Gray was totally in fandom before she wrote this book. I can SMELL THE FANFIC ON YOU, CLAUDIA GRAY. There are some authors you read and you just know that they wrote fanfic before they were published.
2. This book is apparently notorious for its ~spoilers~. Which I guessed on page two. I say that not to brag, but to illustrate that when you are aware that a book has A Spoiler, it is pretty durn near impossible not to guess The Spoiler. So I always read the book wondering if I would have guessed the spoiler had I not known that there was one. Which is a pretty crappy way to read a book! (Though honestly, the title of the freaking book is a giant spoilery clue, so I am thinking it probably wouldn't have been a surprise in any case.) But Evernight gets props for at least being readable enough not to totally bore me.
3. This book is basically Twilight meets numerous urban-fantasy-goes-to-high-school series meets Veela!Draco. I am not joking.

In other, very, very important news, Whip It is a wonderful movie in every way and I want femslash for it so badly you would not believe. Ruthless/Maven OTP, Juliette Lewis, oh my lord that woman could not be any hotter. Please please tell me you have all seen it. Omg it is the cutest. And so pro-girls, with none of the skeevy guy hangups that most girl movies have, and with tons of femslash and fishnets and SKATES. omg. It made me so happy. <333333
