Rating: G

Summary: Lois learns to give the gift of sharing this New Year's.

Author's Notes: I played a bit with the order of episodes in the first season of TNAOS. In my world, "Witness" happened before the New Year (though it originally aired Jan. 9th).

As Lois took a cautious sip of her coffee, the newspaper crinkled and was folded neatly, revealing three heaping plates of various breakfast foods, a mug of what Lois supposed was hot chocolate - though it was smothered with whipped cream so it was hard to tell - and the man sitting next to her, who took the opportunity of having a free hand to begin stuffing the foods into his mouth. )

So for some crazy reason after rewatching the first season of Avatar: The Last Airbender, I decided to go looking for fic. And there's definitely plenty of it! But... I don't know why, but I feel myself inexorably attracted to the Zuko/Katara pairing. Why?? Who knows, but it is the first pairing that goes against canon that I have ever shipped. I idly thought that was where the show was going when I first watched, and was mildly disappointed by the Zuko/Mai pairing, which was always a bit weird to me. And after reading some of the fic out there, I know I ship Zutara (I guess that's their ship name?) hard.

This one fic... I'm still in the middle of it, but it is so good - and I know tons of others agree - over 2,000 reviews do. I feel like the author has really captured the voices of the characters, and I am just drawn into it. For anyone who's interested, it's called Stormbenders by Fandomme. Apparently this author's around on LJ too? I haven't tried to check out the LJ Avatar fic yet, but it seems like most of the quality fic I see on comes from someone on LJ. Hmmm... In any case. I highly recommend!

This fic rec brought to you by my wasted Saturday.

"Children who have an involved father in their lives in the early years show up for school with more of the qualities needed for learning. They are more patient, curious, and confident. They are better able to remain in their seats, wait patiently for their teacher, and maintain interest in their own work."
- Building Blocks for Father Involvement, National Headstart Training Center

Well, that explains a lot about Barney...

Seriously, the more I learn about child development and welfare, the more I understand Barney as not a caricature, but as a real person. :)

I don't even know how to feel about this episode. Even after talking to Phoe, Snogged, and Vim about it I don't know. I feel 10 different emotions at once.

You know it's bad when someone who started this thing after you has passed you in posting progress...

Day 02 → Your favourite movie
Day 03 → Your favourite television program

Day 05 → Your favourite quote

Day 06 → Whatever tickles your fancy
Days 7-30 )

I don't see why coming up with something for this should be difficult, so I'll get it out of the way by posting something that made me cry today... which I guess in a way tickles one's fancy?

I need to say this. Lamest. "Snowstorm." EVER. We got MAYBE half an inch of snow. WTF, Boston???

I have been incredibly delinquent with the 30 Days Meme, and so I give you some make-up blathering:

Day 01 → Your favourite song
Day 02 → Your favourite movie

I'm going to have to go with "The Lion King" as my favorite movie. No other movie can get me as worked up as that one, and I mean happy and laughing and singing along all the way to sobbing like a little baby. It has an amazing message, and a beautiful plot and character arc. I will say that this is pretty different from basically all my other favorite movies in that the romance in this is not really an important part of the plot, but even for as big a sap as I am, I am more than okay with the limited role of romance in this. It is more about Simba's journey, his grief process and acceptance of his tragedy as a youth, and his personal growth as he understood his responsibility to the pride and that he was worthy of that responsibility. I just love it to pieces, and I will never stop loving it. Have I mentioned recently how glad I am I am finally getting to see the musical? ;)

Day 03 → Your favourite television program

How can you make me choooose??? There are many favorites of the past, but for various reasons they have slipped in the ranks and may never be recovered. I don't know if I can honestly say HIMYM is my favorite program anymore. It's just really been bothering me lately, especially in the way that [ profile] girlthethird mentioned - how the female characters are just so one-dimensional and offensively written. ANYWAY. This is not the place for complaining.

So I will have to say my favorite television show would have to be Doctor Who. I always look forward to the next episode, I always have a lot to say and think about it when the episode is over, and even when there are bits where I want to throw something at the TV, I can understand why that's in there. There are moments when I think, "Oh, that's so perfect." I love the character development, and I love the rich history this show has. I've seen at least one episode featuring every Doctor but two, and I love them all, even the really cheesy episodes. It's good fun, and I'll always have good fun with it. It helps that I have no involvement with their very (at least seemingly so) fandom whatsoever. So yay for Doctor Who! Runner up would probably be "The West Wing." Oh, how I miss that show.

Day 04 → Your favourite book
Though I've only read it once (it's on loan to a friend right now), I'm going to say The Silent Gondoliers by William Goldman, author of The Princess Bride. It has the same sweeping narrative that Goldman lends to S Morgenstern's work, and it has just such a beautiful story and heart-wrenching climax. It is wonderfully written, and if I had to read one story over and over again, it would be this one. If I could read one book over and over again, it would definitely be a collection of fairy tales. Because that's how I roll.

One last one for the road. I'm sick with a cold, so bear with me:
Day 05 → Your favourite quote
Here, have a few. I love them all!

"Don't pay too much attention to the sounds - if you do you may miss the music. You won't get a wild, heroic ride to heaven on pretty little sounds." - George Ives to his son Charles Ives

"Does it ever bother you that pathology is on the same floor as the cafeteria?" - Doogie Howser

"I've been saying it so long to you, you just wouldn't listen. Every time you said 'Farm Boy do this' you thought I was answering 'As you wish' but that's only because you were hearing wrong. 'I love you' was what it was, but you never heard." - The Princess Bride

"There is deep mourning up Cleve Young's way this week. A few days ago Cleve could not find his pet raccoon 'Play Boy.' He thought 'Play Boy' was out somewhere playing, however, his guess was wrong; 'Play Boy' was surely in hot water, and of all things, in hot water with no fur on. In fact 'Play Boy' was in hot water on James Brook's stove. His hide was on a barrel stave. James says he ran over him with his car and not wanting to see a good 'coon go to waste - well you know the rest." - The Calvert Independent, October 31, 1940

"When you're a kid, they tell you it's all 'grow up. Get a job. Get married. Get a house. Have a kid, and that's it.' But the truth is, the world is so much stranger than that. It's so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better." - Elton, Doctor Who episode 2.10, "Love and Monsters"

Time to sleep!!! :D
