b/g - in the library

friday things

Language placement tests are like a two hour marathon for your brain. Even though it was multiple choice I still had the potential of crashing and burning - fifty questions or so on reading, grammar, kanji, and listening (each). The last two questions on the listening section were about conversations held in a seminar class about the nature of personal belief, and whether or not we should recategorize chimpanzies as human since they can read kanji. I will be honest, I am not sure if I got the question right on the last one.

Hopefully all that work was worth something - if my scores are high enough I will get into the program I want this fall and be going to Japan for a year. Which is kind of horrifying to contemplate, but in a good-kind-of-terrified way.

So fandom vids:

What New York Used to Be, by [personal profile] giandujakiss. White Collar. Nice editing, nice kind of longing vid.

#believeinsherlock by Deductism. (spoilers for searies 2) This was sweet enough to make me tear up. Like I'm serious. Fandom is love.

and an actual fic rec:

headlong (I'm falling in a) by [archiveofourown.org profile] hito
TeenWolf // Derek/Stiles // NC17 // 80,931
summary Kink meme fill: When Stiles goes to college, for some reason, he has to share an apartment with Derek, which sucks, because Derek still hates him the most. They fall in love.

I love how this came out - both of them being totally confused by the language the other is speaking, and then some worrying at the end, but also? sweetness, hotness, wanting to belong, goofy college crap where they never go to class, and strange new werewolves. What more could you want?

and hmmm, i didn't have tags made for teen wolf or sherlock.... graphics may be required or something.
