Except. As I did. I had to nudge a big stack of books off my chair. On top was my all time favorite comfort series (the Liaden series by Lee and Miller). Which led me to thinking about my current favorite books. The ones that have the most bestest ever good scenes in them that I snuggle down with and re-read all the time because they have such good hurt/comforty/bonding/found you/want you/you're on my team moments in them. Which led to me realizing I'd forgotten to put one on my all time favorite top pick books to read if I had to be squirrled away during a Cylon invasion on a lost Battlestar and could only take one handful authors with me. Quel horreur! That is wrong on just the wrongest of all wrong levels!
Needless to say. I've not entered a single Sherlock fic tonight (and I have some really good ones to put up that I snacked on and smacked my lips over from penfold_x, brate7, mrwubbles but [ Patricia Briggs ] is now up now partnered next to Lois McMaster Bujold, Ilona Andrews, Sharon Lee & Steve Miller all safe and sound now.
Whew! That was a close one. I mean. The Cylon invasion. It could happen and I wouldn't have had my author list ready.
That is not to say that I don't automatically include the Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" and Frances Hodgson Burnett's "The Little Princess" in my Cylon invasion emergency kit. But those are classic loves of my childhood so get an automatic gimme.
PS Your turn, what authors are in your Cylon invasion kit?
Note-no fanfic authors, just book ones, because you know that's what the one terabyte external hard drive is for, right? I mean. Hello. In case of invasion, you're gonna save the fic first! ALL OF IT.
