Fic Rec

I just read an amazing story by leonidaslion, who sadly has left LJ and found her new home at AO3.

Title: i have a rendezvous with death
Characters: Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, OC
Genre: Gen with strong hint of Bromance
Words: 13024 in one chapter
Summary: Harvie doesn't know what to make of the man who saved her, or his great, yellow-eyed hound, but one thing's for sure: there are stranger things in this rider-ridden world than haunts.

The story is unfolded from a third person (OC) POV in a post Apocalyptic world, therefore it is a future!fic. But it does delve into the past. I don't want to give anything away except to say the author is an amazing story teller (anyone who read her works knows that already), and she's really skilled at depicting a bleak and terrifying post Apocalyptic world -- not just with the horrifying monsters, but also with the appalling side of the surviving humanity. Though above all, she gave her readers hope in this bleak world through love, sacrifice, and redemption.

girly, why is it i don't get notices of your posts? do you first post privately before opening to your flist?

Seriously? *facepalm*

Yes, I did first post it privately and made it public after I edited out the mistakes I (often) made. I didn't realize this preclude the entry showing up on Friends pages. Now you just solved a mystery for me. Some of my RL flist members have been teasing me for not checking their journal entries, and I always said: "But I never saw them in the first place!" Come to think of it, I think they all have the habit of doing what I do too.

it'll show up on your friends' pages but they won't get email (or whatever) notifications that you'd posted. i used to make the same mistake and i had a friend do all kinds of tests too, lol.
for long posts or stuff i don't want to lose accidentally, i now make them private and then copy/paste when ready to post to friends.

I learn new things every day! I didn't even know you can get email notifications on friends' new entries! Thank you for the suggestion darling. I shall do that next time. *g*

yes, you can track your friends - thru their profiles, or by using your 'manage friends' page.
also, not sure if you'd seen my post re 6.18's song (in case you want it)

Thanks for the rec! I know this writer writes good fics but since a lot of them are slash I didn't get the chance to read her work. But this one is really beautiful, it gave me the urge to translate into Chinese which I haven't done for ages >.

You are welcome sweetie. Yeah, she's a very famous writer in the fandom, and I love her stuff. A master story teller she is in my opinion. She isn't the author who got me leaping through the wincest "rabbit hole", but she's one of the authors who made me firmly entrenched on that side. ;p

But this work is beautiful indeed. What a great idea to translate it into Chinese! <3
