Recs, for people and fic. And holidays. Woo-hoo.  
I had to share this - the lady who hand-reared my Bodie-cat from a three-week kitten until I adopted him has been nominated for a Pride of Australia award. She would be a deserving winner!
Pic and story here.

Proslib email yesterday delivered a heart-wrenching, beautiful fic which left me with tears streaming down my face. As Far As Is Appropriate by Jane Mailander is beautifully-written and extremely emotional without ever crossing the border into soppiness. I don't normally like the sad ones but I am so very glad I read this. As far as I can tell it's not archived anywhere except for Proslib - and you need to be a member of the group to access it, but membership is usually approved fairly quickly. Link to As Far As Is Appropriate here.

On a totally different note, over on The Avengers kinkmeme we have an awesome fill to this prompt:
Part of Tony is actually glad that Bruce has the other guy because that makes him virtually invincible and after Yinsen and nearly losing Coulson Tony's biggest fear is to lose someone close to him....
Fill - Worse Without

And finally - yes! Holidays officially started! Let the partying begin!

It's always lovely to see that sort of dedication recognized.

It is indeed. My next door neighbour brought me over a clipping from yesterday's paper about this, with a lovely colour photo of Deb and her Maine Coon Rama. What neither article tells you, though, is the size that Little Paws has grown to; they now have over 100 carers with more than 450 cats in care right across Brisbane at the moment. It's a huge organisation now. And all because Debbie had a dream, that every cat deserved its furrever home.

I read the story by Jane Mailander and it is very touching. You are right - so much emotion, and nothing soppy. Most times it hurts so much to read death stories, but this time it was different. A wistful story, but no catastrophe... thanks for the rec!

Wistful, yes, that's the word exactly. I'm glad you enjoyed it.
