It was about time for some good news as well, after my department's library was closed for about a week and a half for revision and the main library's online search will hopefully be available again on Monday *shakes fist*
Not to mention that 99% of the books I need most likely won't be available because they're buried somewhere on other people's piles of readings or for other unknown reasons. Like this copy of that one article I ordered at the library - for real money - after the system had promised me I'd have them in three days time. You could imagine how thrilled I was to get a note that the copy's just arrived a mere 4 months later. Useless to say, I didn't need it anymore by then. Being a student is so much fun sometimes o.O
Anyway, since I'm done whining, I spent some time going over my SN fanfic recs today. I hadn't updated the list since January and thought I owed the thing some love. All recs to WiPs that haven't been updated over the past 5 months were removed as well as dead links (RIP), and wherever possible, I tried to hunt down links to LiveJournal.
