Lovely Weekend Away
I had such a good time this past weekend in Toronto, at the home of talktooloose. He hosted a weekend-long wrap party for his just completed X-Men novel, Days of Becoming. lux_apollo,kuriadalmatia, and I descended on him for a weekend of celebration, cooking/eating, exploring Toronto, and much, much discussion of all manner of things.

Days of Becoming is a novel length fanfic set in movieverse and covering a period from well before the start of the first movie until after the third one. The main pairing is Bobby/John and talktooloose has a fascinating, appealing, and oh so believably adolescent take on both of them. He weaves a complex, yet approachable story full of interesting characters - canon and OC. I recommend everyone read it, at http://toothdemon.net/ttl/fanfic/dob/index.html.

Being at talktooloose's house and with my co-betas was so comfy and so fun, almost shockingly so considering the fact that some of us had never met before. He is a wonderful host and it was lovely to hang out with him and to get to know lux_apollo and kuriadalmatia in person.

I hope I can return the hospitality sometime!

I'm all bubbly and bouncy today! Afterglow! Also, I finally got a decent night's sleep last night.

Thank you for the rec. I truly hope that your home is enough your own sometime soon that you, too, can host!

So we wore you out, did we? I'm glad you got caught up on sleep.

I could definitely host you, or you and Snake, now. But a larger party isn't so feasible at the moment, more's the pity.

I very much enjoyed being one of your sous chefs, or as talktooloose says, Mary Sue chefs.

I was glad to have your help. I can get really stressed out in the kitchen when I'm improvising like that. :-)
