Yuletide brought me a delightful Dwarf Fortress fic, Earthseer, Diamondsea. Summary: "A new day dawns on the newest outpost of the dwarven fortress of Idbërûl. Of course, it's only a matter of time before misfortune falls upon Reg Dorenallas and his companions..." Because of course this is Dwarf Fortress, and any other outcome just wouldn't be Fun. *grin*

If you're familiar with DF, you should definitely check it out!

And if you're not familiar with Dwarf Fortress, you should give it a shot, then check out my gift fic. I should note the fic itself has spoilers if you've not reached that game aspect, but then again, maybe you're like me and enjoy reading the wiki and forums to read about all the adventures your fortresses fail too soon to reach. (Stupid massive rampaging skeletal goats and tantrum spirals from everyone's horror at accidental baby shields and troglodytes trying to make homes in the living room.) (Seriously, though, it is an awesome game and a great fic.)


I am down in FL again, as per my mum and my holiday tradition. It is a nice, laidback time as per usual, even with my allergies going haywire. Apparently I am missing a blizzard, but at least there will be plenty of snow left to return to.

Has anyone been to the new Fantasyland? We are planning on checking it out on either Friday or Saturday depending on the second snowstorm forecasts, but I'm curious if there's anything in particular we should experience or keep an eye out for. My excitement is reaching pretty epic levels over this.

Sure, Disney may be full of shameless capitalism and consumerism, but it is also full of happiness to try to keep you and your money coming back. Also, there is nothing like seeing tiny children make :O faces of delighted amazement and remember seeing the same on your siblings' faces at that age.


I hope you are all having a delightful Boxing Day! How goes your week?
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
And also so I know to go back and leave gushing happy comments once I have gotten over my issues contacting strangers with my main account, or somehow work up the mangrit (womangrit?) to do so regardless.

These are a mix of ships and quadrants:

Like Air by [archiveofourown.org profile] Azzandra is a delightful Karkat/Gamzee pale romance and it just fills my heart to the brim with ~feelings~. I don't have an OTP in this fandom in any of the quadrants, but if I had one for moirallegience, it would totally be this pair. Just. SO ADORABLE. Karkat pities Gamzee always and forever.

[(716): The only thought that went through my head was 'that would be an absolute disaster' so of course I said yes] by Anonymous (entry for Team Dave/Terezi in Homestuck Shipping Olympus Round One) is SO GREAT. It is many of my favorite things in one fic. Terezi + Dave + Vegas should be a thing forever. That it is Terezi/Dave red romance is so much the better. This fic comes with art, and it is amazing. I kind of want the last picture as my new desktop. So much joy.

if food be the music of love by [archiveofourown.org profile] t_ZM has Terezi being introduced to Earth cuisine by Dave in the best form of redrom courtship. There should be a thousand and one of these things, oh my gosh.

Waiting for God Tier by [archiveofourown.org profile] schellibie and [archiveofourown.org profile] t_ZM is another illustrated story, this one super great and super sad all at the same time. It is sort of Karkat/John, with the best kind of optimistic, unhappy ending I have seen.

Batterwitch by [archiveofourown.org profile] noveltyhorns has Karkat and John as the best kismesis the other could ask for. This fic is glorious, funny, and ridiculously hot for something so safe for work.

And that's it for recs at the moment. Judging by the tabs left half-read or to-read in my browser, eventually I'll be throwing tons of longer fic with redrom Kanaya/Rose.

(A sneak peek from those tabs: Trollish for the Easily Excited by [archiveofourown.org profile] cosmogyral, because if my reaction to the first one with redrom Rose/Kanaya is anything to go by, the whole series is a thing of delight.)


In other things, does anyone know how to link to AO3 using the pseudonym instead of the main account name? Besides, well, skipping the whole user name="" thing and just using the regular means of a href="".

Also, would anyone else who has had trouble getting through the (kind of boring) beginning of Homestuck like me to do a write-up of "all you need to know about early Homestuck" complete with links to what I find to be good possible entry points? I am also considering doing a promo post mostly so I can be like LOOK AT TEREZI'S AWESOME FACE and SEE HOW BAD-ASS THESE TROLLS ARE and LOOK, HS HAS MSPA'S GREAT DORKY SHENANIGANS, THEY'RE JUST HIDDEN FURTHER IN and so on. Man. I might even have to write up some ship manifestos for various quadrants.

But seriously, Homestuck has hit me right in the feelings place, ridiculous author interludes, carapaces, meandering storyline, and all. It is pretty great.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
While I have been terrible at finishing fic lately, I did finally look into those media recs I asked for a while back. I gave Homestuck another try, and once I hit Act Two, it was smooth sailing. I'm currently somewhere in Act Five Part Two, and I have discovered one major problem: already I want to read all the fic and I am not even caught up yet.

So! Homestuck fen: this is your chance to sway me to your fandom. Give me recs of fan art and fic and whatever else there might be, and I might (read: will probably) double down on this fandom. Especially if those recs involve Kanaya/Rose, Karkat/John, and any sort of Terezi presence. Like. I love all the humans and their adorkable little faces, but I finally understand what everyone was talking about when they said to wait for the story's spotlight to shine on the trolls.

I mean, okay, I have a few problems with things that come up in the story here and there (it would not be MSPA if I did not), but man. I feel like this fandom and I could possibly have a beautiful relationship.

What I am saying here is: enable meeeeeeee.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
A thing of nightmares, what comes of watching the first five minutes of Frankenstein. I blame [personal profile] lizfu.

Life update stuff: [personal profile] the_wanlorn and I are no longer together. She broke it off, but I'm pretty okay with it all, so no sympathies necessary on either side, I think.

Mostly, my life has stayed pretty boring, though I am going to a carnival wedding of a close family friend later today. Considering the bride was my sister's best friend at the same time her sister was my best friend and our mothers have remained close friends for ages, it is practically a family event. While I'm not looking forward to the crowds, it'll be nice to see that whole family again.

The other thing of interest was watching Frankenstein's theater broadcast with [personal profile] lizfu, as mentioned above. The stagecraft and acting were pretty great, though there were two unexpected potential triggers for s.a. Feel free to p.m. me if you need info on that.

I'm still working on that Avengers Valdemar fusion fic. It is mostly done, but I am having difficulty sticking the landing. Why are endings so hard to write?

Finally, a link for [personal profile] lizfu the rest of you may enjoy, too: Harry the Hufflepuff. It's an ffn link, and yes, there is a sequel accessible via the author's profile.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Which is to say that my netbook, as adorable as it is, is not used enough for it to do anything but drive me to distraction when I am trying to type. This is a problem for the flash fic extravaganza (feel free to leave more prompts) only in that I will have to type them all up when I get home, which will be well before the end of the year.

So that no one interested in DAII time stamps (eek, so happy to be writing this) or anything else I'm working on will miss them, I'll be trying something new and posting the flash fic to [community profile] tuesdayfic and AO3 and just leaving a link in my replies.

In other things, I have been enjoying my vacation. I stayed up way too late (see: the time of this post) reading and re-reading [personal profile] devildoll's Semaphore, which is an Avengers movie-verse fic that ends in Tony/Steve, but also includes a ton of minor character and ship moments that delighted me no end, from Clint and Natasha's double handstand to Pepper's new job and boyfriend to Steve's apartment and neighbor to--well, you can read it all yourself. *grin*

Other things done on my vacation have included buying books for the first time in forever, including Mercedes Lackey's new Changes, which I liked much better than Jim Butcher's of the same title, and some book about a zombie lawyer that is on crack. My cane and I haven't tried braving the beach, but then, I didn't bring sandals, anyway. There's a Siamese kitten, maybe a year old, that likes to wander the area, and I am seriously contemplating buying treats to lure it to me. I can bring the rest home to my cat to make up for the betrayal, I'm sure. Besides, his Christmas catnip toys will probably make him forget we left him at all.

Overall, this week is going rather well. How are things with y'all?
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
First, I am the luckiest of ladies in that [livejournal.com profile] rhea314 made two great pod fic from my flash fic: Like Sharpened Feathers, It Falls, an Akari Hikago fic, and Down Endless Corridors, a Chris Petshop of Horrors fic.

Some links from my circle and network and elsewhere:

Bobwhite by Magnolia Porter is a pretty excellent comic about three friends in university at an art school. It is also complete! You may want to start from the beginning.

Mental Health and Meds, about good experiences with meds.


A number of vid, fic, and art recs (emphasis on vids):

Walk Right Up by [personal profile] china_shop, a Clinton/Neal White Collar vid of deliciousness.

Love the Way You Lie Part 2, which is Charles/Erik X-Men: First Class and terrible and delightful to watch.

'Til the World Ends by [personal profile] talitha78 is Charles/Erik and Britney and absolutely wonderful.

Muppet Thor, which is a little sad and a lot funny and super great.

Set Fire to the Rain by [personal profile] talitha78 (shut up, yes, I rec her a lot because she's awesome), which is Thor and Loki and makes me claw at my face with FEELINGS, SO MANY FEELINGS.

Shatter by [personal profile] aria is a Loki/Thor AU in which Loki is the one cast down, and it also overwhelms me with feelings, oh my gosh, you guys, this fic. FEELINGS. Also, an amazing Darcy and science as sorcerery and FEELINGS.

Possibly I have lost coherence by the end of these recs, but whatever, all you need to know is all of the above are great. Also, if you have any Raven recs, you should send them my way, because right now I am too leery of the internet to go searching.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Omnom Forest is a ridiculously cute flash game.

Lovestain is a Darwin/Havok X-Men: First Class vid by the ever talented [personal profile] talitha78

The X-Men: First Class kink meme apparently has a Delicious. If anyone wants to point specific prompts in my direction, however, I certainly won't object. *grin*

Diving bell spiders use bubble webs 'like gills'. They only have to come up for air once a day. Awesome--or creepy?

The Periodic Table Expands Once Again
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Hi! I know, I know, I never call, I never write, I am basically a terrible imaginary girlfriend for those of you who like to think of me as such. (Just don't tell my actual girlfriend. *grin*)

Right now I am in the very sunny, ridiculously hot state of Florida at Disney World for a late celebration of my 25th birthday. My mum said she wanted to take me anywhere I wanted to go for my birthday as my birthday present, and because I am perpetually five at heart, of course I wanted to go here. And then because I am also a lover of great deals and saving money, I didn't go on my birthday itself, because I could save 40% on our stay. If you like visiting Disney and saving money, I would seriously recommend giving them your e-mail.

ANYWAY. More about Disney after the real reason for this post, which is that the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] kalakirya made a pod fic of The (Mostly Accidental) Courtship of Dean Winchester (link goes to LJ). The pod fic is also available at the audiofic archive.

I cannot express my excitement and glee. I am sure it is the most amazing thing that will ever grace your ears. Sadly, I can't listen to it myself until I return home, but eee, so much excitement.

Between that and all of the fun at Disney, I am having the best vacation ever. We've seen a flock of seven ducklings and their mama hanging out in a pool, deftly avoiding the two small children trying to catch them, several corvids bathing and playing in water, amazingly fun changes made to the Haunted Mansion, a few parades and a show, Fast Five at the Disney Downtown AMC, a group of small children on a pirate ship pretending to be searching for treasure, and tons of other great things. This is the vacation I finally learn to take it slow. I've brought my cane and am taking frequent breaks (this is one of them, during which I have commandeered my mum's laptop while she is out doing things), and we're pacing ourselves. I've done a lot less than usual, but I can't begin to tell you how great a time I'm having.

With any luck, once I return, I won't be too tired or broken down and will have many more stories to tell you. I may even finally break this radio silence I've fallen into for good. At the very least, I'll take care of the modly duties I've been remiss in and appoint some new mods at the comms I run alone.

I hope y'all have even half as good a week as I am currently. ♥
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
An admission, finally, because no matter how much I hope I will get over this, it's time to face up to the fact it won't happen any time soon. I'm having difficulty (in which, to be honest, "difficulty" itself is almost a euphemism) replying to comments, talking to most people on aim or gchat, using the phone, or chatting with more than one of the few people with whom I can talk at once. (We're not even going to go into leaving the house.) E-mail, at least, is mostly working, if I tell myself I only have to reply with a few lines, and anything past that is just icing.

I'm not saying this so I can get "Oh, poor Tuesday :(" comments or internet hugs, not that I don't appreciate knowing that all of y'all tend towards a most awesome sympathy or empathy when it comes to this sort of issue, rather than automatically assuming some bid for attention. Some of you already know that I'm currently working on finding a medication that works for me, and I'm hoping I'll get there at some point, but right now, I'll settle for making it a little easier on myself and admitting that no, I won't be replying to all of the comments. I may not even be replying to most or some of the comments. Mostly, I want each of you to know: it's really, really not you; it is most definitely me and my brain chemistry.

With any luck, with this out of the way, and with less (even self-created) pressure on, I'm hoping I'll be able to post again, or write fic with the hope of posting again, or at least contemplate either without having to go lie down and tell myself to breathe.

Currently, I'm leaving comments on on this entry, but I may lock them for any (even irrational) reason. This entry is currently unlocked, but that may change. Hell, don't be surprised if I panic at how awkward this entry feels and it is suddenly magically gone from one minute to the next.


Some less awkward-feeling things:

• My sinus infection is slowly getting better, emphasis on slowly, but my wrist is pretty much recovered at this point.
Porn Battle is open and has lots of interesting prompts. This time around it's open for eleven days. Maybe I will finish something for it this time around.
Festivids has gone live. I haven't had a chance to watch much yet, but the two vids I have seen were amazing. And to think, there are well over a hundred more left to watch!
• I've recently taken up Minecraft. It's still in beta, so not only is it discounted, but every time Notch updates with new trees, mobs, and recipes, it's like Christmas. It's like if Legos and Dwarf Fortress got together and had an adorable baby that made friends with the undead. Just so you know, you should consider this Penny Arcade comic and the one proceeding it both a dire promise and a warm warning. Also: this update has cake & squid!
• Speaking of the above, if you play Minecraft and want me to help build or mine you things, let me know what server you are on? I tend to wander the servers when I am not playing on [personal profile] the_wanlorn's or a server full of adorable teenagers. (Actually, I do not know for a fact they are teenagers, but man, do I ever suspect.)
• Expect to see this game in my next The A-Team fic.
• I received lovely cards from [personal profile] love and [personal profile] talitha78 over the holiday season. Sorry for not thanking you both sooner. Each seriously made my day. ♥
• Anyone have any suggestions for a reliable place to back up my fic list if Yahoo can't find anyone to sell Delicious?
• Even though I've been reading this whole time, I've missed y'all. ♥
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
For Christmas, I was given some lovely hand-knit gloves (that match some lovely hand-knit socks [personal profile] the_wanlorn already gave me) and The A-Team from my girlfriend and my bff respectively. That my girlfriend and my bff had the chance to meet and actually got on well was probably my favorite part of the last couple weeks. (One might even say they got on too well. I suspect they were secretly hatched from the same pod. Case in point: fries in shakes. Who but pod people could harass me with their love of that abominable combination?)

My least favorite part was probably the plague my girlfriend gave me after blaming it on me. Seriously, all of the gifts I could do without, having my traditional been traveling cold and my girlfriend's wicked strong sinus infection is super high up there. (But totally worth it in return for [personal profile] the_wanlorn visiting.)


In news of my other beloved winter festivities, I know I am way behind on replying to comments, adding full author's notes, etc for Yuletide. When I am better, I totally plan to get to that. Something else I am shamefully late on: directing y'all to my Yuletide gift, a Kalinda/Alicia The Good Wife fic called Bad Ideas Are The Best Ones. It is adorable. There is drunk kissing, and sleeping on the couch, and friends being friends and something more. I am delighted by its existence.

For those curious what I wrote who haven't raided my AO3 page, this year, I wrote two assignments and two treats:

This is (Never) How It Goes
Fandom: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic
Summary: There was much they left unsaid these days.
Notes: Bastila/Revan femslash, 1088 words, teen. I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to get this as my main assignment. Full notes at the fic when I get around to that.

Friends Don't Let Friends Suffer Alone
Fandom: Archie Comics
Summary: The problem with friends is that they plot against you.
Notes: Betty/Veronica, 1955 words, teen. This may be my favorite pinch hit ever. Full notes at the fic when I get around to that.

Fandom: A Softer World
Summary: Eustace says, "You can never go home again." No one listens.
Notes: Full notes at the fic when I get around to that.

Maybe Death's an Adventure, But Who Wants to Wait?
Fandom: A Softer World
Summary: "Is it dangerous?" she asks, always asks, and smiles.
Notes: Full notes at the fic when I get around to that.


And now it's time for me to go fall down again. Suffice it to say, I may be keeping Luden's and Sprite in business by my purchases alone.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Today we have the Field Museum, and then at some point we're headed back home. I'll try to catch up on comments some time in the next few days.

There are a bunch of things I want to link, but this is the one that shouldn't wait: Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite (alternately: at AO3) by [personal profile] the_wanlorn is an adorable B.A./Murdock fic with stealth cuddling and forced hotel bed sharing and Murdock making sure B.A. isn't eaten by monsters. I'll say again: BEST. GIRLFRIEND. EVER.

Now to pack, because we leave in less than an hour and my stuff is scattered eeeeverywheeeere.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Things that make me like the world a little more:
Taylor Swift being adorable.
New Spice: Study Like a Scholar, Scholar.
Re-reading Wanlorn's A-Team fic.

I have stuff I need to do tonight, but I feel like just falling over. Agh. Two hours is not enough sleep for today.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Creeping Toward the New Normal by [personal profile] the_wanlorn is made of kittens and rainbow and sunshine. She wrote it for meeeeeeeeeeee. It is five times B.A. did not kill Murdock, and it is amazing. If you have watched The A-Team, you will love this. If you haven't watched The A-Team, you should get on that and then read this fic.


Speaking of The A-Team, I wrote a 5k+ B.A./Murdock fic in which Murdock gets stuck in a time loop. Anyone want to beta?

I have apparently come down with a cold of doom (seriously, why do I bother going outside?), but before I go to bed, those of you not currently engaged in various Father's Day activities should totally check out this amazing vid:

For Your Entertainment by [personal profile] grey_bard

I mentioned this a while back when I was fortunate enough to preview it and have basically been sitting on my hands since to stop from going on about how awesome it is. It's a Supernatural Gabriel/everyone vid made of total win.

Now to go fall over a while.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Between that J2 story, that bandom story, and Hobbs's latest (disability) fail, I have to wonder if there is something in the water this week. That's not even going into that horrific and triggering story dealing with child abuse and sexual assault.


I have a bunch of thoughts on warnings and labels, lately, and their usefulness as tools for navigating toward or away from things depending on needs, but I think they need to simmer longer. I do want to point out that I read every comment on my post about warnings and triggers (contains triggering content for sexual assault) (and have come to the conclusion that what I mean and what different people in fandom mean by certain labels can be vastly different). I know I said ahead of time that I probably wouldn't be able to respond to all comments, but wow, how true that actually was. Point being: I definitely was (and am) listening, even if I haven't done a lot of replying.


Some links:

My amazing artist BFF has prompts open through midnight tonight. I am probably going to make random demands of her close to the deadline.

A multifandom mix challenge is being put together, in which people create mixes and others claim and write fic for them. Y'all should go give opinions.

SKTSO is my new favorite fandom acronym.

For the three of you on the internet who haven't seen it: this Supernatural comic by glockgal is amazing.

Sea turtle films self, becomes YouTube sensation.

Bobcat kittens.


Recently, I found an old copy of Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri and was curious if it would run on Windows 7. The opening screen is a sea of black with two outlines of tan boxes set in the middle, but once I click the right button, everything runs fine. I haven't made it very far (world domination will never be mine at the rate I am going), but I am kind of in love with the guilt-inducing quit menu.

(Other things I love: tvtropes using a modified version at the bottom of its page on Alpha Centauri.)
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
How excited am I for drafts, scheduled updates, and the new update page? Very.


Normally I would post this locked, but I would appreciate anyone's input. For those of you who have been/are on Loestrin, how bad were the side effects for you? If you experienced terrible and ongoing nausea, did it eventually fade? If you experienced daily mild to blinding headaches, did those eventually fade? If you experienced occasional cramps, did those eventually stop?

For anyone wandering through who might suggest stopping taking hormonal b.c. and using a different means of b.c. instead (or, as my brother would put it, "Why are you even on it?")--it's for ongoing medical reasons. Preventing accidental passing on of genes is not really a concern for a woman who only dates other women. *wry smile*


On that note, I think I am back up for a while. Maybe in a bit I will try taking some aspirin and trying sleep again, but at the moment it seems unlikely. Anyone online?


P.S. Just found #airplanes. Dying of laughter. How is [personal profile] shirozora so awesome? (JET WINGS.)
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Losing all of your tabs and all of your work that was open in txt documents (because you are a tool and do not use programs that save themselves) when power is suddenly and unexpectedly cut to your desktop. You know what is even more awesome? All of your sessionstore.js files being magically empty, such that when [personal profile] the_wanlorn gives you awesome helpful advice, it turns out you are still fucked. Whee!


Originally, I was going to hold off on posting this rec set until I tracked back down some fic I'd misplaced, but now I feel like the world needs more happy-making porn. [personal profile] fenellaevangela, this is one of those rec sets I mentioned in passing to you last week. Perhaps I should make this a weekly sort of deal?

Castiel/Dean kink fic rec set:

Control (LJ), fic by [archiveofourown.org profile] fayjay, pod fic by [livejournal.com profile] pandarus. I'm linking to the pod fic, which I haven't listened to, because I know someone out there may be interested in it. (I am, but it is a future interest, for when I take the time to load pod fic onto my ipod for long trips.) [AO3 link] This is more a Castiel fic than a Dean fic, set immediately following 4x16 and during 4x17. This is D/s and has spanking and more. Consent is complicated, but I like the way the story deals with that. I love the power play, even if the means of working out the rules of their relationship is nowhere near what's recommended. More than anything, though, I love Dean's obsession with Castiel's mouth. It's like yes, I am right there with you.

Excerpt of 'Control' )

Sigil (LJ) by [livejournal.com profile] cassandra_leeds is a gen fic that [livejournal.com profile] cassandra_leeds labeled as "Dean/Castiel if you squint," which, you know, I do. What is a gen fic doing in this Castiel/Dean kink line up, you may be asking yourself. The answer is: this is seriously my favorite edgeplay/bloodplay story ever. Edgeplay is something very much on my hard list, but Supernatural fandom! Making me think twice about--and absolutely love--kinks I'd never try in the actual bedroom for fear of emergency room visits. This fic is set during 5x18 and as such has spoilers for it.

Excerpt of 'Sigil' )

Mirror, Mirror by [personal profile] elementalv, which combines sex in front of a mirror and a beaten to fuck Dean with toppy Castiel, set as a missing scene from 5x18. Hot damn.

Excerpt of 'Mirror, Mirror' )

Except Thou Bless Me by [personal profile] architeuthis is, hands-down, my favorite kink fic of this fandom. It's 10,000 words of sex and need and Dean being broken and Castiel providing him with the means to deal with that. (Give me a 10k copy of Ruby/Sam--or Ruby/anyone--kink fic written half as well, maybe we'll talk again.) This fic has it all! Power play, breath play, light CBT, bruising--this fic is directly responsible for my watching the alley scene in 5x18 with my breath held, because wow, I did not expect my favorite kink fic to become half-canon. (Why did canon not end with lots of awesome aftercare?) Castiel figuring out what Dean needs and willingly giving it to him seriously gets to me. A note: I'm linking to the beginning so y'all can check the author's notes, which include warnings for triggers.

Excerpt of 'Except Thou Bless Me' )

Inhuman by [personal profile] scaramouche is incredibly (deliciously) porny and also endlessly fascinating to me, because it deliberately follows the thread of Castiel not being human to interesting places while at the same time delivering some scorchingly hot sex. On a kink level, what gets to me the most is how Dean gets to Castiel. Words are powerful and really damn sexy.

Excerpt of 'Inhuman' )


Those are most of my favorites! What are some of yours?
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
This is Tomorrow (the getaway driver remix): Donna's new temp job leads to adventure, in which Donna and Christina have incredible chemistry and I love Donna's brain.

The Bees, The Bees (The Five Times Donna Met the Doctor Without Realising It Remix): Donna goes looking for trouble (and finds it). Eee, Donna, with lots of awesome old school Who references.

Without a Chance to Pray (The Ceiling Cat Remix): In which Castiel is turned into a kitten and remains very much himself. I think my heart grew three sizes reading this story.

An Existential Crisis [the retcon remix]: This story is creepy and wonderful, in which Mary Winchester keeps her promises.

Above Us Only Sky (The Golden Age Remix): This is absolutely gorgeous, in which Anna is trapped between two worlds.
everysecondtuesday: glasses and milk tea in the morning (Default)
Remix Redux is open, so everyone who entered should have an e-mail with a story link by now.

My remixer is a genius (A GENIUS) and I am still laughing and wanting to draw hearts around Sam's and Gabriel's (and my remixer's) faces. My remixer chose to remix Dean Won't Be Your Angel Condom: If Any Be Blameless (The Condom Fatigue Remix). It is Sam and Gabriel (and the Impala) and utter and complete hilarity. It makes me very, very happy that my fic could've inspired this.

Anyone who hasn't been involved in my own remixing process (and hasn't checked my related works tab; I'm going by the honor system here) is eligible for a spot the obvious Tuesday guessing game. If you win, you get 500 words or less (I'm hoping--I can't keep writing 7k+ stories for tiny!fic) for whatever prompt you'd like with any of my previously written characters or ships in Supernatural, Psych, Doctor Who, and Chuck (through S2; no spoilers thereafter, please).
everysecondtuesday: The text reads "Tuesday."  The image is of Castiel being amazing. (tuesday is colorful)
Family Business (LJ) by [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan is a Castiel/Dean constructed reality vid in which Dean is an FBI agent and Castiel is an ASSASSIN. I want the fic to this so bad, omg. On its own, though, it tells a gorgeous story and I love it to pieces. I stand in awe of [livejournal.com profile] newkidfan's skills.

[personal profile] twentysomething's Shortskirts 'Verse has three stories right now: Think I Know Where You Belong, Everything Comes Naturally, and Gotta Be From Out of Town. The first is adorable, hilarious high school AU shenanigans and the next two are scorching hot porn. Her fic is proof that the fic fairy loves us indeed.

Of Coffee and Cellphones (LJ) by [livejournal.com profile] c00kie is a delightful rom-com in which Dean is a composer and Castiel is his client's assistant. There is also bonus Sam as a barista!

Playing for Keeps Till the End of Time (LJ) by [livejournal.com profile] laceymcbain is the fusion I never knew how desperately I wanted until I was granted it: Supernatural and HIGHLANDER. Need I say more? Okay, okay, how about this: Castiel is Methos. My joy is endless.

Below Skyscrapers (LJ) by [livejournal.com profile] aesc is--how to describe it? It is a hard-boiled detective novel fused with an FBI AU fused with urban fantasy, as if the writer decided to take all the things I loved and throw them in a blender to create something absolutely fabulous. Plus, bonus Henriksen! Who couldn't love that?
