Once again girls and boys, behold the power of pop music.
Yesterday was pretty bad: away from my loved one, disappointing news, disillusioned & frustrated by my current situation, feeling generally tired and ill and shit. Then my mp3 player randomly selects this Robyn track, one of my favourites, to play for my walk home.
Sometime you just need that imaginary narrator in your head, be it a Swedish pop star or anyone, to recognise how you feel, and emphasise to you, without any real evidence, that it’s going to be okay.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the book club’s read-along for the final round of Prompts in Panem. Several of you have asked for a compiled masterlist until the official list becomes available on PiP’s archive, so I took the liberty of cobbling one together for you.
Thanks to all the readers who passed along feedback, kudos, comments, and reviews during the read-along. Every word of encouragement and support matters to the people who have written and shared their stories. If you’d like to send any additional reviews my way, please do! I’d love to post more.
And many, many thanks to all the authors in our fandom who put their hearts and souls into writing these stories. They’ve inspired smiles and tears, countless ASDFGHJKLs and OMFGs and RUDEs and YASSSSSSSSSSes. They’ve pushed boundaries, made us swoon, and brought us together to lament or laugh. They’ve given us fluff and angst and smut; they’ve melded genres, smashed them, bent them, or chucked them out the damn window. They’ve crossed over universes and delved into what ifs and why nots and how comes. All totally for free- out of love of the craft, the fandom, and, of course, our OTP. I think we can all agree it was a phenomenal note for PiP to go out on.
And last but not least, thanks to the marvelous Jessa (aka @peetaspenis) for graciously hosting the party. PiP was a party that brought people together from around the world and made friends and comrades and colleagues out of the motliest, most beautiful crew I could imagine. If it weren’t for PiP I wouldn’t be writing again (and that’s either a blessing or curse, depending which way you look at it ;p). I know that’s true for so many of us.
I hope you guys will stick with the book club. A revamped reading list for the first part of February is going out this afternoon. It will include a blend of old and new, PiPs and WIPs, drabbles and one shots, and who-the-hell-knows-whats. But it’s all Everlark, and it’s gonna be fun a ride.
The complete list is under the cut. All errors and mistakes are mine. I’ve done my best to update author user names and such, but you know how it is. Lotsa moving pieces. Hey, I tried. <3
