My parents were here this evening to exchange the faucets of the bathtub. The old ones kept dripping slowly which basically caused the damage. Let's see how the new ones work. I'm getting so paranoid with everything connected to water in my flat...
At least it seems that the damage in my landlady's flat is limited. The plumber had drilled some holes into her bathroom ceiling the last time to see how far the water had got. Apparently this time the water followed this way and dripped from the ceiling into the bathroom which wasn't yet renovated. So there's hope that nothing or at least not much got into the wall itself. That had been dried and repainted before. All I can do now is wait as it'd take some weeks for the dampness to show. At least I've got an insurance.

In the meantime I'm reading Gate of Ivory, Gate of Horn, a Harry Potter epic by Wemyss. It has a rather unique way of telling the / a story. Wemyss leaps forwards and backwards in short and long scenes, presents small insights or develops the plot in longer narratives. It allows her to slowly build a panorama of a world, culture, politics, people. Her characters are incredibly well built. Her grip on speech is very consequent. Also she's extremely well-versed in literature, history and philosophy...
This is absolutely worth reading even if one isn't into the HP fandom. It's fascinating, brilliant and fun to read.

confession

I got a confession to make: I'm addicted to Naruto high school AU's.... *blink* *blush* AAAARGH

Here's my list:
From here to eternity by I Am The Lorax and sequel A hazy shade of winter (my absolute favorite so far. The author called it a soap opera and it is... of course you can't get away from it... update!!!! I'm waiting for an update!!!!)
Just like heroine by sugarswirls (cross-dressing Naruto [how can I like that???], seriously gloomy/depressed Sasuke, but it has its absolutely hilarious moments)
And the beat goes on by Queen Angelblood (quite nice, a bit confusing)
The new guy by SilverRose88 (Sasuke and Neji competing for Naruto's affection... grin)
The ultimate uke syndrome by rosesareblue (now aren't you just curious?)
Carousel by Fantastical Queen Ebony Black (hmm, weird, dark, interesting > Gaara! and Neji)
Almost sucks by Mashiro (just started to read, but it seems very promising [I like the writing style so far, i.e. it's a good read])

Wow, I didn't realise there were so many! My excuse? What am I to read while waiting for [profile] maldoror_gw to come back from her vacation from writing? And I'm aware that her writing is of a very different quality. I was just looking for more Naruto fics... long Naruto fics.... long yaoi Naruto fics... and then it happened.

Ducks away *blink* *bursts out laughing, points at Just like heroine* *cough* anyway... ducks away and into hiding again

Fics I've read recently / am still reading
Reading is slow at the moment because of work. Also I'm rewatching Hikaru no Go. I've watched it twice already and it's still addictive!

Read more... )
