we were falling asleep in the sunlight  

Legend of Korra: Masks on Empty Faces by [archiveofourown.org profile] loquaciousquark (Gen, 1200 words)
The boy has a different name for it, but Koh knows the place where Truth begins.

This is a possible origin story for Amon, and it's gorgeous. Probably useful to have background knowledge of Koh from AtLA, but I'd recommend it even if you don't.

The Hunger Games: There's Another River on the Other Side by [archiveofourown.org profile] Mithrigil (Gen, 10,000 words, Warning for graphic violence)
District 11 wins the 74th Games. The rest is history.

spoiler or warning hereThis is an AU where Katniss dies instead of Rue, and goes on from there. It's beautiful. I adore how Rue is characterised here, and how all the consequences play out.


I had a good May Morning. A bunch of us from Tolksoc stayed up all night in Helen's room. There was food and good company, (and, surprisingly, no one banned me and helle_d from talking about fandom at great length...) and J showed up around 5 incredibly drunk to provide more entertainment. Then we watched the choir sing from the top of Magdalen Tower in the rain to welcome in summer, and went out for breakfast. We also went to find morris dancers first, because J told us earnestly (in a 'pirate' accent) that ze didn't believe in them. Then I went to sleep all day. That was fun.

Oh, semi-relatedly, Helen is now planning on actually using her LJ account, of_a_thousand. If you're from Tolksoc or otherwise know her, add her! *Pokes her to write posts*

Surely Tolksoc types are just the sort to appreciate fandom discussion.

I have never managed to do May Morning properly. I attempted it in first year, although I didn't want to stay up all night because I had a one-on-one tute the following day and those were hard enough when not sleep-deprived - I decided instead to get an early night, get up very early, meet friends and go and hear the singing. It did not work. The guy in the room next to me had an extremely loud gathering in his room, and when we had got a position in the crowd and the singing was about to start, a very drunk group rolled up next to us. They had instruments. I heard absolutely nothing from Magdalen Tower. Um. Clearly I am still bitter.
