the fantastic february weekend  
On Friday I went down south to London to meet up with franztastisch and alphaflyer, two lovely fandom ladies :D We talked all day, it was brilliant. Conversation is never boring when it can go from fandom to politics of many countries to legalities to stories of adventures abroad, books, funny factoids, religion, and everything going. We went around Camden, bookshops, and fic tour places like the cafe from Second Mouse:

As well as a Turkish restaurant where franztastisch actually had her food taken away from her because "it seems to be fighting you", which was more hilarious than it ought to have been, but really, best dinner steal ever. Food was tasty and I have now tried baklava. (alphaflyer has the good photos.)

Fandom chatter and fic enabling happened of course *grins* so there should be another Bond/Avengers big bang fic and a huge university AU epic and, huh, I guess I'll have to finish stuff too ;)

Saturday was spent with franztastisch doing more talking, being good by not buying books, and wandering the British Museum. (I have now proven to her flat mate that I'm not a figment of franztastisch's imagination, ha.) And I had to read Life of Crime by neveralarch (explicit, 35,399 words, A supervillain AU where Clint shoots arrows at people and gets beat up a lot. ) because reasons, and because when your return train is delayed by an hour you don't really care if there's fun fanfic to read :)

Sunday night I went to see Postmodern Jukebox. I'd never heard of them but I was told I would love them and I do! They take modern songs and rewrite them in the style of the 1920s-1950s. There was a live band, singers with fantastic voices, adverts/messages from sponsors in the style of the era but for things like facebook, and even a tap dancer. This is one of my favourites:

I adore Life of Crime!

Congrats to all of you on a lovely meetup and I'm sooo looking forward to the fic!

Sounds like you had a lovely time!

Omg, thanks for the rec, I've just finished the first chapter of that fic and it's great so far!

How awesome that you all got to meet up and spend a fun day together. I had fun just reading about it! And a collaboration fic among all of you would be legendary. Cheers to a friend-filled weekend.
