Interesting Reads - Highly Recommended!!

1. If you haven't already, check this out: How to keep someone with you forever
Truly insightful.. especially the part about Keeping the crises rolling. This is how employees like me get screwed by their companies over and over and over again. Although the lovers' angle is rather interesting and worth a try hehe ;)

2. And this Bigbang (J2 AU) story by astrangerfate called Things We Can't Untie
I am not just reccing it because Cam's a friend, but because this one's a must read for J2 fans who're taking a break from the usual stereotypical stories and are craving something original and unique. Don't let the sex slave premise deter you from giving this a try because at no point is Jared's spirit broken nor Jensen heartless. Fact that's just it - for a sex slave, Jared has too much spirit and for a slave trainer, Jensen has too much heart :) It is a cute developing-love story, super hot in places and perfectly interspersed with smart and witty political commentary that really makes you think. Which then easily melts right back into hotness completely derailing your big wordy thoughts ;) The writing style is clean and memorable without being overly dramatic, except at the end - those last few pages literally had me on the edge of my seat! And I was smiling for a long while way past the finish line. To me this one's definitely for keeps, an outright winner in every way possible.

I'd love to hear what you think... until then happy reading! :)

Awwww! You recced me! ♥ And you said super-nice things. *blush* You're way too nice to me.

Checking out the other link asap. :)

Yikes, that other link was almost too uncomfortable to get through. In the "oh God, how painfully familiar" sort of way. *headdesk* Very good, just a little too close for comfort. ;)

Awww, sweetheart I didn't realize *hugs*. But if you think about it, I bet its ringing a bell for most everyone who's had bad relationships and I've had a whole string of 'em behind me hehe... this is good insight for me to be careful I don't do this with my new beau nor do I let him do it to me!

*bounces* New beau? ;) Hope that goes remarkably well for you, sweetheart. You deserve it. And I hope it is free from all the scary manipulation outlined above.

Heh.. well.. um it was mostly just figure of speech. Exaggerated figure of speech *sheepish* :) We've been on a few dates, a couple weekends.. it's going well *sighs*. Let's see...

And yeah about the sick systems, its scary how NATURALLY it comes to some people. It's not that they're doing it on purpose or consciously, that's just how they are *shrugs*. Doesn't make it right, mind you. But I can see how it may be driven by insecurity in a lot of people. Too early to rationalize stuff yet? Okay well, I'll shut up then :D

*hugs*

:D:D Of course sweetie, why wouldn't I? You know I love that story.

Thanks for the rec, will definitely check it out, haven't had time to read an awful lot of bigbang stories so far unfortunately. Thankfully they don't have an expiry date, so I'll have time to read them later on as well! =)

You didn't write a bigbang this year, did you?

Hey you.. yeah I'm having trouble keeping up myself but have bookmarked the ones I'm definitely reading, once my own bigbang is done. I'm still getting it betaed and fixing it :( I post 8th August.

uh...slave fic...sorry but no thank you, i dont care how well written it is or something, it is slave fic and that is just a huge turn off for me.

Sure, of course hon. You shouldn't force yourself to read anything that is a clear no-no for you.
