Item One - I have just taken the coffee mugs I have accumulated so far today into the kitchen. There were eight of them. I am currently drinking another, will have one more after dinner and at least a further mug before bed. I may need *help* with this caffeine addiction.

Item Two - My internet account has just eaten *all* my bookmarks. All my Stargate and TMNT research pages, all my fan-fiction sites, everything. I've tried the things I was supposed to do to get them back and no joy. I had them... well I had them prior to the two days my net was down recently.

So, I'm having to rebuild my bookmark folders from scratch (and then I'm going to get a Delicious account and put them there).

Maybe you could help me out?

I think I can find the TMNT fic because I know most of the authors' names (heck, I know most of the AUTHORS).

But Stargate? Another matter entirely. :( I've re-bookmarked princessofg 's recs list... but what about other recs lists and other recommended fics? Can you guys help me find the fics I love again?

THINGS I LOVE: Hurt/Comfort (gen or slash), First Times (Jack/Daniel), LONG fics, Strong!Daniel, Daniel/Sha're, Daniel's Past, Jack and/or Daniel as Parents...
THING I HATE: Woobie!Daniel (including bullied!Daniel and the Daniel who can't take care of himself when he has flu), Historical AUs which handwave actual history, BDSM, Daniel or anyone else from SG-1 kiddified, Crack for the Sake of Crack...

go to green_grrl's lj and copy her lists. also feel free to check out my delicious as I think we have many common interests. and check out my delicious network as well, full of wonderfully anal compulsive fandom folks (really! I love you all for it!) who have comprehensive fic collections.

additional resources include stargatefic and stargateficrec

Thank you! And Woot - I can save fics direct from yours to mine. Cool! :D

(Are you doing okay?)

Holy shit, Dee, that can NOT be healthy. D: Although I say this while the green tea I drink like a fish probably has just as much caffeine. Fortunately they came out with a caffeine-free version, but I can only get that at the other store, rather than the one right across the street. >:[

Actually, I'm pretty sure I've drunk more coffee in a day than this: I just noticed it because I didn't do my usual trick of rinse and refill the same mug and I ran out of mugs. :D

Caffeine doesn't seem to do much to me - nary a headache nor a jitter. But then I *have* been drinking coffee since I was 5. Decaf on the other hand, is disgusting.

I like tea too, lots of teas: Earl Grey, Lady Grey, Chai, Darjeeling, Green, Jasmine, Herbal...

Oh my lord, I think I'd cry. Mine are on my yahoo account, so I think they're safe?

I see zats has already pointed you to green_grrl's rec lists, which are my go-to lists. And I'm sure you know that starglyph also has thematic lists. If you're missing specific fics there's stargate_search and sgastoryfinders.

Thanks for this. I ranted and yelled rather than cried, but you get the idea. Talk about annoying and frustrating.

For most of my favourite fics what stays with me is a single scene or the feel of a piece: finding these fics again is not going to be all that much fun, though it may be semi-worth it if I find some other fics I love. I guess. Maybe.

For SGA, there's sgagenrefinders for general types of fic (wonderfully organized tags as well). They also compiled a List of Lists post that you might find helpful.

Hi - did some kind person point you over here? (Or were you curious about the sg_prompts member with 17 WIPs?)

Thanks so much for your help! :D

Hee! I have to admit, I was a bit curious about someone with that many (and here I was thinking I was the only one with more than 10 floating around...). :)

Glad I could help!

Heh. Most of my waffle is f'locked.

I keep meaning to do something organised with this LJ (meta, book reviews, fanfic recs etc) and getting distracted. Therefore at the moment it's more memes and me bitching about real life, writer's block and my health problems than anything else.

And I have so many WIPs because I never finish anything. I get a donnee, a scene that is so vivid it plays in HD and Dolby Surround Sound in my head... but I'm never sure where such a scene comes from or is going. And then I'm never sure whether anyone else would be interested *anyway*.
