Drive-by Trekrec: A Tide Taken at the Flood by lindmere is a gorgeous look at Pike post-movie.

I am seriously having to read this in little bits because it is so hurty. (And to think I was going to pass it by because I have issues reading her layout's font.)

Try adding &style=mine to the end of the url? I have my LJ settings set so everything is in my own default style...

I've been appending ?format=light; I get confused, reading everything in my style, because I think, "Wait, I do not remember adding this person! Why are all their entries on my frie-- oh. OH."

Thank you so much for the recommendation! You have sent a number of wonderful people my way.

I am so reading that tale when I have time to cry.

Also, I am sleeplessly rummaging the internets, saw this, and thought of [your] Pike/Number One:

A Dream Pang

I had withdrawn in forest, and my song
Was swallowed up in leaves that blew away;
And to the forest edge you came one day
(this was my dream) and looked and pondered long,
But did not enter, though the wish was strong:
You shook your pensive head as who should say,
"I dare not--too far in his footsteps stray--
He must seek me would he undo the wrong."

Not far, but near, I stood and saw it all,
Behind low boughs the trees let down outside;
And the sweet pang it cost me not to call
and tell you that I saw does still abide.
But 'tis not true that thus I dwelt aloof,
For the wood wakes, and you are here for proof.

-- Robert Frost

Oh my--that poem is perfect. It just captures the way I felt about them while writing "No Small Dreams".

I should write something light and fun one of these days. I'm all DESPAIR! PAIN! SEX! lately.
