Book Meme!

Woo-hoo, it's that book meme! I was tagged by abigail89. I love being tagged. :D

Directions:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.


Well the nearest stack of books to me are the storybooks that I read to Asher when it's bedtime. (Last night's selections: The Very Hungry Caterpillar and You Are My I Love You.) But underneath that stack was a book that I started reading... way back when. IDEK. It was good, from what I can recall. It's called Listening to Prozac by Peter D. Kramer, and it's kind of about the way that Prozac can be life-changing and almost personality-altering, in addition to lifting depression. I definitely had that experience, at least until it stopped working for me, damn it. Anyway.

Page 123, beginning at sentence 5:

The animal models seem to say that pain has its price, even for those in whom trauma does not produce major depression. The victim carries his scars. Indeed, the vagaries of life being what they are, we all bear scars. We should not expect any clear line of division, then, between health and the early stages of illness. Very likely, a good many of us are in the early stages of kindled depression. The only question is whether good fortune or ongoing processes of protection or repair will save us from suffering a full-blown course of illness.

Interesting. What do you think, f-list? Do you agree with this little nugget? :D

Okay, tagging:
mga1999, linelenagain, wemblee, sleepygoof8784, and yeomanrand. Unless you don't want to, of course, and if anyone else who sees this wants to do it, consider yourself tagged as well!

Trek Fic: One Time the Moby Chronicles Met Jim Kirk's Massive Cock... In Jail

Title: One Time the Moby Chronicles Met Jim Kirk's Massive Cock... In Jail
Author: skyblue_reverie
Fandom & Pairing: Star Trek Reboot (aka AOS, ST XI, etc.), Kirk/McCoy, Kirk/McCoy, Kirk/Kirk, McCoy/McCoy
Rating: NC-17
Spoilers: None
Warnings: Umm, complete and total CRACK.
Word Count: around 2700
Summary: Oh god. Where to even begin. Well, Jim and Bones walk into this jail cell, and meet... Jim and Bones.
Disclaimer: Any resemblance to anything whatsoever is purely coincidental.
A/N : Okay, so. This requires a bit of explanation. It was therumjournals's birthday, on... well, tell you what, let's just not worry about how long ago it was. Point is, she wrote a wonderful pair of fics that were awesome and cracky and hot where Jim has a massive peen. Right about the same time, by total coincidence, I was writing a bizarre cracked-out series where Bones has a massive peen. With me so far? Great. Okay, so we got to talking, and we said wouldn't it be funny if the two sets were ever to meet up and be forced to, er, have a comparison. And naturally, being the OMG WEIRD PERSON that I am, this idea festered in my brain until it was time for her birthday and now here it is. If that hasn't made you run away screaming yet, um, enjoy? :D? Happy birthday, therumjournals! And thanks to linelenagain, who looks mighty fine in that cheerleader skirt.
A/N Take Two: the tl;dr version: (JIM + BONES) x 2. BIG PENISES. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
