The many talented writers in fandom may be interested to know that yesterday was the beginning of National Novel Writing Month! This is the ideal time to write that book about a slightly older, sensitive man and the love a budding woman child feels for him when she gets to know him better. Or you could, you know, be normal and non-pervy. Totally your call.
Also, today's public service announcement: remember to set your clocks back one hour if you live in an area that observes daylight saving time. If you don't live in an area that observes daylight saving time, you can still set your clock back if you want to...but you'll probably end up late to work.

- Together Again, by ashk09 (COMPLETE!): "For some reason, the silence unsettled her; such peace was normally a positive boon, as it gave her time to read or write, but now, the quiet felt like an alive thing, pressing in all around her.
