Love this fic: Parlour Games by prillalar, Harry Potter, Pairings: Sirius/James, Bellatrix/Sirius. It's like caramel, burnt and bitter, but oh so lovely.
I was looking at reviews on Amazon for a simple pattern-making book and came across the following review: "This book creates fashions for women who have figures of little girls, not real women. It was very disappointing in that the patterns were for stick, straight bodies." It was rather insulting since I have a very straight figure, so I was glad to see a response that began: "It's nice to know that those of us who have athletic body types or who haven't been blessed with huge boobs or hourglass figures aren't considered real women. You could simply say it's not for all body types instead of degrading a certain type." You go girl!
