I'm also reading the new biography of T. E. Lawrence. Keep getting my memory jogged re: Attaturk, The Young Turks and Acuba from my cursory study of the Ottoman Empire years and years ago. And Lawrence was short! That just makes me laugh-take that epic hero trope!
And then I reread Devilpiglet. "Prayer's to a Broken Stone" then "Roundabout". Gah, as we used to say. Dynamic. Relationship focused, DON'T CARE.
I'm rereading Nan Dibble. Cause I needed something long and involved and had reread the Barbverse last year. (I first "knew" Nan from TableTalk and heard of her death there). Her stylized Spike Speak bores me after a while and then this scene will come up and I'm "Oh! That's where that's from!" I like the Gen feel. I like Spike & Dawn in fic. Thank you Nan.
I need to fix the mod icon. wtf.
