I went to the zoo today, which was thankfully open despite the holiday weekend, and though some of the animals were merely sleeping and finding shade, others didn't mind the heat and were active.
Also I wanted to recommend Psycho-somatic Sex Junkies by Shadow. It's set in BBC Sherlock-verse and is very sexy. It has the right amount of Sherlock's cold analysis, but he's not so cold as to be a sociopath. I find I don't like the darker fics that are so prevalent lately on the kinkmeme. There's only so much unrelenting angst, pain, and torture that I can stand before craving something light and happy.
