I can't contain myself. Y'all must simply head over to [livejournal.com profile] teh_helenables to read the work of the amazing [livejournal.com profile] helena_eternal, because... god damn. I haven't devoured so much of one author's work in one sitting like this in a long time, and I can't overstate how freaking amazing her work is. I love her controlled, subtle style and how it still manages to pack a whallop without resorting to purple language or overabundant description, and she has this knack for unearthing incredibly powerful emotions from the characters that have left me a bit winded on more than a couple occasions now.

The Violin House is her most recently posted story, and I'm not ashamed to say I cried like a little girl at the end, as well as through most of the beginning and middle. A wonderful, heart-wrenching story for these miserable days leading up to S7. I think most of you will have a hard time not going back to read everything else on her journal after that. I'm not going to lie - I'm hoping if enough of us get together and pressure her to finish some of the WIPs that are currently killing me (pot, meet kettle, I know), we'll have even more of this wonderful writing to relish in the near future.

So hop to it, chickens!

I SECOND THIS RECOMMENDATION COMPLETELY!

I found her earlier this year and INHALED her work in one go. She's absolutely AH-MAY-ZING.

Can't wait for more of her fic!

So... hello there. I was checking my e-mail and found a pingbot message, and didn't realize what it was until I saw it was the kindest, most awesome, LIFE AFFIRMING rec ever written. I've read it three times, and then (still in shock) read it out loud to my brother (who likes to think nothing's worth reading unless it's a sword-and-shield spic spanning generations). And now I'm going to print it out and stick it on the computer monitor for the inevitable days when the writing is going badly.

Just, thank you so much. I'm more determined than ever to finish the WIPs! (And so should you, Ms. Kettle! :D)

Merci, merci, merci.

I know! She really needs to finish "Spell Definatly Beautiful". Of course I don't write, I critique, so its not so hypocritical of my to beg someone to finish a story...when I haven't finished one yet....coughwhenplayturnsbittercough... :P JK! All of my favorite authors do so well that it is always worth the wait when ya'll produce another chapter to a WIP. It's that sweet anticipation of not knowing how the next part of the story is going to be erected.
