The Years That Walk Between, by [livejournal.com profile] femmequixotic.
Harry Potter, DM/SS, DM/HP
Post DEATHLY HALLOWS -- spoilers in story. Obvs.
I like everyone in this story, and I can't often say that about HP fic with these three characters, especially if they're in character. :)

The Walking Wounded, by [livejournal.com profile] svilleficrecs/Kate Andrews
Live Free or Die Hard, McClane/Farrell
If you've had the misfortune to spend time with me in the last month then you know how thoroughly this movie turns my crank. And all the reasons why it does are thoroughly flaunted and magnified in this hot, hot story. Seriously. It's like liquid porn.

Antiquaries, by [livejournal.com profile] shrift
Angel/Highlander, Wesley/Methos
Huzzah. Seriously. That's all I have to say -- I'm just so glad this story exists.

Dean Winchester Goes to Hogwarts, by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes
Supernatural/Harry Potter
OK, it's not actually called "Dean Winchester Goes to Hogwarts." The story linked to above is "The Girl in the Portrait," and that story has the two previous stories linked at the top of that page. So go, read. You'll be glad you did -- this is another terrific crossover.

The Devil Really Does Wear Prada, by [livejournal.com profile] balefully
Supernatural/The Devil Wears Prada, Sam/Dean
Guys, I can't even express how awesomely cracktastic this story is. And the terrifying part of it is, it WORKS. And it's so much fun.

Found, by [livejournal.com profile] resonant8
Harry Potter, HP/SS
In the aftermath of the war, Snape tracks Harry down.
miss_pryss: (S is for slash)
consumed by either fire or fire, by [livejournal.com profile] flambeau.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.
The bed made them do it. Seriously.

In Nomine Patris, by [livejournal.com profile] fleshflutter.
Supernatural, Dean/Bobby.
This story has many virtues, and the fact that it sells me on Dean/Bobby, even temporarily, is only one of them. I highly recommend checking it out -- she's very smart about Dean's relationship with John, too.

Fat My Dust, by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza.
SGA, McKay/Sheppard
Pitch-perfect! Rodney's got a secret, and John gets punched in the mouth. This story perfectly captures the sort of uneasy camaraderie that John and Rodney share on the show: you can't really tell if they're best buddies or can barely stand each other -- and sometimes you get the feeling they can't tell either.

Satisfaction, by [livejournal.com profile] hth_the_first and [livejournal.com profile] linabean.
SGA, McKay/Dex
I don't even know where to start with this story. It's beautiful and painful and happy and funny and deadly serious, and this conception of Ronon is now my personal canon. If you haven't read it already, you must.

Untitled snippet, by [livejournal.com profile] crimsonclad.
SGA, McKay/Sheppard.
John learns to pray -- just in time. This little bit of story took me apart and put me back together again, violently.

Parrot, by [livejournal.com profile] penknife.
HP/PotC, gen
Crossovers make me so happy. What if Jack Sparrow went to Hogwarts before turning to a life of piracy? Huh? WHAT IF!?

Not All Roads Lead Home, by [livejournal.com profile] musigneus.
HP, Snape/Lupin
I love this story. Short and to the point: Lupin manages to track down Snape at Spinner's End.

Desk Duty, by Mosylu
HP, Gen (Weasley twins & Madam Pince)
Set during Order of the Phoenix, this story highlights the clash between Madam Pince and Dolores Umbridge. The Weasley twins witness, and admire. It's very sweet and very funny.

Retribution, by [livejournal.com profile] valis2
HP, Snape/Lupin
The ending of this story is the funniest and scariest thing I've ever read in any HP fic, practically. I absolutely did not see it coming, but it makes so much sense. Which is not to say the story is some kind of clever set-up with a twist at the end -- it just concludes in an incredibly whallop-packing manner.

Diplomatic Incident, by Randi DuMois.
Star Wars, Han/OMC
I love Han. This story is a lot of fun -- Han gets thrown together with a diplomat and sparks fly -- first the "I hate your guts and hope you die" sparks, but you know how these things go -- before you know it they're fucking on the floor of the Millennium Falcon.

Three Weeks After the End of the World (And Counting), by [livejournal.com profile] penknife
Star Wars, Han/Luke/Leia (implied)
Plague, apocalypse, and figuring out what you really want -- assuming you live long enough to enjoy it.
miss_pryss: (Alex - mine.)
A thread on MAKING LIGHT featuring great works of literature rewritten or summarized in LOLCat / |337. ENDLESS fun, people. Especially gratifying for the English Majors of the world.

A gargantuan list of Post-Trinity Rodney-Shunning fics, compiled by [livejournal.com profile] iibnf. I spent the better part of yesterday guiltily reading through this list, sort of the same way that a bad, bad dog sneaks away to roll in the rotting skunk carcass she found in the woods.

Rest stop. Near Leland, Mississippi., by [livejournal.com profile] merryish
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.
This is a terrific little snippet, all full of fun and atmosphere and sexy, sexy Sam/Dean.

First kisses meme: Sentinel, Highlander, X-Files, by [livejournal.com profile] mickeym.
TS, HL, XF, Jim/Blair, Duncan/Methos, Mulder/Krycek.
Kickin' it old school, babies!

Generosity, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean, John.
The demon takes John's Colt but leaves him alive, apparently on the premise that John's living future holds misery a-plenty. John's POV is perfect in this story, and it's always interesting to see the Sam-and-Dean club from an outside perspective.

Tin Soldiers, by [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.
Dean's counting down his days.

Desired, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.
Dean and Sam have really terrifically, mind-blowingly hot sex. Now with added spanking! Seriously, guys, this fic hit like every one of my kinks.

Spoils, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean
Awesome, funny, hot little story. Illustrated here, by [livejournal.com profile] joosetta, and based on this thread, in [livejournal.com profile] esorlehcar's journal.

Paradigm Shift, New Blood, and Like Family, by [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing.
Supernatural, AU, Sam/Dean implied, OCs of various types.
Terrific outsider-POV AU where Sam and Dean have been given their own little department in the FBI, sort of like a bigger, rowdier, better-resourced X-Files.


...And speaking of the X-Files...
I recently took a little trip down memory lane to my first fandom, and favorite stories therein. So here's a small and random assortment of happy-making X-Files fics that I still love, after all these years.

Courage to Forget by JiM.
X-Files, Skinner/Krycek.
Unadulterated schmoop, just like most of the "Houseboat Variations", which can all be found here.

The "Kill or Cure" trilogy (Stroke of Luck, Dogs of War, and Game of Kings), by [livejournal.com profile] hth_the_first.
X-Files, Mulder/Krycek.
This story stands the test of time better than almost any of my old favorites.

The "Sovreignity" trilogy Scatter, Signals, and Sufferance), by Vehemently.
X-Files, gen (mostly -- complex interpersonal relationships but no nookie.)
Mulder and Scully come across Krycek during the course of an investigation. This story is so huge and so complex it's hard for me to say more about it, but I will say that the dynamic between Scully and Krycek is especially fascinating.
miss_pryss: (Doggie loves kitty!)
Back Country Roadmap, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.

the other desert, by [livejournal.com profile] torch.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.

Running Laps Around the Sun, by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.

Letters Home, by [livejournal.com profile] mickeym.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.

And Unto Dust Shalt Thou--, by [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean.
miss_pryss: (icon courtesy of wanderlustlover)
Necessary Rites, by [livejournal.com profile] innie_darling.
Supernatural, Het, John, OFC, Dean, Sam. An early hunt, while Sam is still just a baby. I like seeing these bits of John working it out, learning to deal, and being a human being. Fallible, but loving and trying so, so hard.

Burn Your Bridges Down (Slow Fuse remix), by [livejournal.com profile] penknife
Pirates of the Caribbean, Sparrow/Norrington. Hot Jack/Norrington ackshone, plus my faaavorite trope: pulled out of the sea, on the verge of death, by the enemy! Helpless at the hands of the adversary! Yum.

Walk a Klick, by [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone.
SGA. Rodney/Teyla. Rodney and Teyla switch... minds. And roles. It's complicated but intuitively completely straighforward and so awesome! Yay!

Athosian For BEginners, by [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone.
SGA. Rodney/Teyla. This is SUCH AN AWESOME STORY. It's about linguistics! And cultural imperialism! And love! And Teyla and Rodney and John and Ronon and technology and it is so smart and SO ENTERTAINING. The translation fields generated by the gates go on the fritz and suddenly everyone's back at ground zero. Teyla's POV is terrific and her alienation and frustration are so immediate I found myself grinding my teeth while I read certain scenes. But Rodney! Is so awesome! (So is everyone else, really). Anyhow, read it. You won't regret it.

This New Condition of Living, by [livejournal.com profile] sevenfists.
Supernatural. Sam/girls, Sam/Dean. Dean teaches Sam about sex. No, not like that. At least, not like that right away. :) This story is smart and hot and features Sam and Dean having a disaster of a first time, which wins as many points from me as Sam and Dean having a miracle of a first time. (I love both, but disasters are harder to find.)

Here is a video of some salt on a metal plate. Trust me, you want to watch this.

Overhearings More to the Purpose, by Sharni.
Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth/Darcy. This is another "what if" P&P fic -- this time, what if Elizabeth never heard Darcy say she was "tolerable"? Unlike the last two P&P fics I've recced, this one doesn't take a premise and then wring every ounce of drama, miscommunication, and bad luck out of it. Instead, it's a very entertaining look at what a slightly more conventional romance would have looked like between Darcy and Elizabeth. It's very good.

In case anyone is wondering how I'm finding these P&P fics, they've all been from [livejournal.com profile] hafital's ginormous P&P fic list. Go, marvel. I'm working my way through.

Recs

miss_pryss: (Dean+Wall)
Remainders of Echoes, by Maygra.
Supernatural, Sam/Dean (mild). Sam starts seeing the bits and pieces people leave behind -- moments in time imprinted invisibly (except to Sam) on the world. This is really lovely. Dreamy but real.

Accidents Will Happen, by [livejournal.com profile] holli.
Supernatural, gen. A bunch of suburban teenaged Wiccans accidentally bring John Winchester back from the dead. As awesome as you think it is.

Summer of '93, by [livejournal.com profile] a_fallen_sister.
Supernatural, gen. Sam and Dean spend the summer with Pastor Jim and Dean takes Sam fishing. With bonus fan-art!

By Any Other Name, by Kay Reynolds.
From Eroica With Love, Klaus/Dorian. This story is really long. So long that I... never actually finished reading it. I have a seriously short attention span when it comes to fic. But it's good and angsty and there's lots of schmoop and nice details and it's generally very entertaining. There's a shorter story that's a precursor, called Angel. There's no nookie in that one but I like it just as well. Be warned: these stories are hosted on Angelfire each page loads at least one obnoxious pop-up.

Multi-fandom short stories about CANDY, by [livejournal.com profile] kormantic.
Due South, SGA, SG-1. Charming and funny stories about candy. It's Kormantic, so it's got to be good!

Forces of Passion, by Alison.
Pride and Prejudice, Darcy/Elizabeth. This is a terrific P&P fanfic with the premise that Elizabeth doesn't get a chance to deliver her scathing retort to Darcy's first proposal right away... and how that changes everything. BE WARNED: this is a WIP that is likely to never be finished, but the author gets Elizabeth and Darcy squared away safely: the only unresolved storyline is Jane's. The footnotes are really interesting and informative: this author clearly knows her history.

By Force of Instinct, by Abigail.
Pride and Prejudice, Darcy/Elizabeth. Another fantastic P&P fic, with a similar departure: Elizabeth and Darcy are thrown into each others' company in the days immediately following Darcy's first proposal. This is another story that I haven't finished reading yet, though I do intend to. One issue I'm having is that Georgiana has been given a roll in this story that I just don't buy... but everything else is pretty much spot on.

The infinite in the finite of every instant, by [livejournal.com profile] liviapenn.
SGA, Rodney/Teyla. Rodney inadvertently proposes to Teyla during the events of "The Tao of Rodney". Awesome and hot and moving and funny. I love this pairing!

Bare, by [livejournal.com profile] resonant8.
The Breakfast Club, Bender/Brian. A lovely little afterthought to Higher Education.

Rodney Loves Pegasus (The Good Parts Version, by [livejournal.com profile] liviapenn.
SGA, Rodney/Teyla. Pegging.

Stumbling toward Happiness, by [livejournal.com profile] mirabile_dictu.
SGA, Rodney/Teyla(/John/Ronon). Teyla gets knocked up. Rodney is her birthing coach, John is Rodney's backup, and Ronon is John's backup. The actual birth scene is NOT TO BE BELIEVED. I heart this fic so much.

Night Watch, by [livejournal.com profile] mia_ugly.
Harry Potter, Harry/Snape. Harry is captured and Voldemort wins the war. Snape is Harry's jailer and eventually friend. There's a lot of oomph in this fic. If you buy the pairing at all, I suggest you read it. (Also, Harry is 20 so there's not a knobbly knee or tremulous gaze to be found, which I'm always relieved by.)
miss_pryss: (Severus. 1689.)
Tremolo and Staccato, by [livejournal.com profile] lyra_wing
SPN, Sam/Dean
I just love this story. I love how the awareness grows between Sam and Dean in drips and drabs -- I look here, a kiss there, until *bam*, there's no other way it ever could have been.


Dusted Kaleidoscope, by [livejournal.com profile] pixel_0
SPN, Sam/Dean
In the wake of IMToD, Dean takes Sam on a road trip, revisiting places where the Winchesters were a family, and happy. This one kicks my ass.


carry on my wayward gnome, by [livejournal.com profile] groaty
SPN, gen
GNOMES. Seriously. Very, very funny.


BONUS HARRY POTTER REC:

Potions and Prejudice, by slipper balloon.
Harry Potter, SS/HG, WIP
A mash-up of Pride and Prejudice and Harry Potter, starring Hermione Granger and Severus Snape. And, guess what? It's really, really good. The characterization is complex and believable, the prose is very entertaining, and the elements of the two worlds have been combined in an incredibly graceful and harmonious way. I can't wait to read more of this.
miss_pryss: (Sam and Dean!)
A Thousand Miles From Nowhere, by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes.
SPN, Sam/Dean
This is such a lovely story. It's a non-chronological meditation on the boys and their love for each other, and it manages to be both wonderfully optimistic and true to the source, and that is an achievement all in itself.


Comics fan art: Tampon ads, by [livejournal.com profile] odditycollector.
DCU heroines schilling for "Contex" tampons. Hilarious!


Until It Sleeps, by [livejournal.com profile] cloudsurfing.
SPN, Sam/Dean
The shapeshifter lets something slip while he's wearing Dean's skin, and Sam can't stop thinking about it. Gorgeous, hot, lovely first time fic.


Comparative Morality, by [livejournal.com profile] cupiscent.
SPN, Sam/Dean
Another fantastic slow burn of a first time. This one features hot shower sex!


The Miner's Lamp, Ruddy With the Light, and I See You Better In the Dark, by [livejournal.com profile] hansbekhart.
SPN, Sam/Dean
A wonderful story in three parts. In "The Miner's Lamp", Sam falls in love with Dean in the aftermath of "In My Time of Dying." The boys spend a lot of time patching each other up and having complicated emotions -- my favorite combination! In "Ruddy With the Light," Dean falls in love with Sam and buys him a bracelet at WalMart. Believe me, in context, this is about the most romantic thing you will ever read. In "I See You Better In the Dark," they make the hot sex.


samson went back to bed, by [livejournal.com profile] endora_taylor
SPN, Sam/Dean (sort of)
This one is hard to interpret but my theory is it's a sort of "life flashing before your eyes" meditation taking place in the moment the Winchesters' car gets creamed by that semi at the end of Season 1. Anyway, it's very interesting and a bit mysterious.


Old Ghosts, by Gillian Middleton.
SPN, Sam/Dean AU
Scroll down about 2/3rds and you'll find the index for this story. What can I say about this story? It reminds me a lot of the angst-o-licious crack of primo X-Files M/K fic, for starters. Dean and Sam are orphaned and separated at very young ages. They meet as strangers when they're adults, and fall in love. Also, Dean has a traumatic history as a child prostitute! What's not to love? Seriously, this story kicks ass.


The Extremely Smooth Seduction (And Don't Let Anyone Ever Tell You Otherwise) Of Dr. Badass, by [livejournal.com profile] trollprincess
SPN, Jo/Ash
Jo makes a deal with Ash. AWESOME and hilarious.
miss_pryss: (Sam and Dean!)
Hey, lookit my crappy icon! I made it my own self!

OK, I've been putting this off for weeks because I'm a newcomer to this fandom and I get the feeling that anything I rec people will already have read, like, last year sometime. But in the last couple of years I've gotten to the point where psychologically I can't actually close a Firefox tab with a good story on it if I haven't noted it on my LJ, and as a result of my procrastination I now have over fifty tabs open in Firefox and my whole machine is running slow so I just have to do this, right now.

So.


Happy Birthday Fic for Helen by [livejournal.com profile] crimsonclad.
SGA, Sheppard/McKay.
Ha! Psyche! I'm still reccing SGA after all. This is a story for anyone who loves stories that are hilarious and also outrageously, hugely satisfyingly angsty at the same time. NB: it helps if you think anorexia is sometimes a little bit funny.


and the band's playing "hail to the chief", by [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic.
SGA, gen, implied Sheppard/McKay.
This is a lovely follow-up to [livejournal.com profile] synecdochic's epic Freedom's Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose, in which Rodney puts himself back together again. In "hail to the chief," he actually gets some real satisfaction from the world. Awesome.


Sky Full Of by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock.
SGA, Sheppard/McKay, AU.
I waited and waited and waited for this story to finally be finished, OK? It felt like it was a WIP for about ten years. And now that it's done... I can't read it. I don't know. I built it up too much and now I have a complex. So you guys should please go read it and come back here and hold my hand and tell me it's OK for me to read it, too, OK?


Road to Shambala, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat.
SPN, Sam/Dean
Sam and Dean... get married. OK, and have lots of hot sex and ANGST in between. Yay!


Meredith, by [livejournal.com profile] pentapus.
SGA fanart, Sheppard/girl!McKay
Dude, Rodney McKay would make such a hot woman. And you know Sheppard would be all over that.


Life Among the Dead, by [livejournal.com profile] destina.
SPN, Sam/Dean
A week in the life of Sam and Dean, with a happy ending at the end of it, and a vision of happy endings to come. Featuring a brief, but very hot blowjob.


Higher Learning, by [livejournal.com profile] destina.
SPN, Sam/Dean
A "Dean visits Sam in Stanford and they hook up and then its awkward" story, which is fast becoming one of my favorite genres... and this one even has a threesome for bonus points!


Down to the End, by [livejournal.com profile] esorlehcar.
SPN, Sam/Dean
A plotty, overwrought story about first times and ANGST. See especially the part where Dean runs off because it's better for Sam that way and then Sam psychically senses Dean's SUFFERING from half a country away. This is one of my favorites in the fandom already.


No Need of Dreams, by [livejournal.com profile] destina.
SPN, Sam/Dean
Another Stanford years story! This one doesn't have a threesome but it makes up for it in h/c. Dean's pretty dinged up, see, and somehow he ends up on Sam's doorstep...


Morning in the Evening, by [livejournal.com profile] ivy03.
SPN, mostly gen (unrequited Sam/Dean)
Dean loves Sam, but Sam's in love with Dean. Sad, but oddly satisfying.


To be continued...
miss_pryss: (bottom!)
Time to clear out my Firefox tabs again! Here's some fic and some misc awesomeness that has entertained me in the last month or so.

Title: Allow
Author: [livejournal.com profile] svilleficrecs.
Fandom: Mac commercials
Pairing: Mac/Vista Guardian. You read me right.
Notes: HOT HOT HOT. Also, awesome wikihound.

Title: Cornerstone
Author: [livejournal.com profile] the_con_cept
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: SS/HP
Notes: This is a cool story. A kind of a loving send-up of a certain genre of HP story, with some pretty good characterization and a lot of moments that made me laugh. It shows how used to the kind of story it's taking off on that I kept waiting for the moment Harry burst into tears. (Which never came, btw.)

Here, look at this awesome picture of some kind of bird of prey. Warning: pigeon bits.

Title: Boy Meets Girl, Girl Cures Cancer
Author: [livejournal.com profile] smittywing
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Rodney McKay/Katie Brown. Nearly gen, though.
Notes: Very, very sweet look at Rodney and a little insight into Katie's background. I liked this very much.

Title: Harry Pottter commission art
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] buttfacemakani
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: HP/DM?
Notes: If you're not reading Makani's LJ I don't know what fannish rock you've been hiding under. Check out her awesome new website while you're at it.

Title: Ophthalmology
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kormantic
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: Sheppard/McKay
Notes: Everyone and their sister has read this story already but I've still got to rec it. Glasses!

Title: Harry Potter/Severus Snape fan art
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] glockart
Fandom: HP
Pairing: HP/SS
Notes: This is sooo pretty. I spent about twenty minutes just looking at it.

This woman has the prettiest, perkiest, most perfect breasts I have ever seen. This is from a collection of photos of people topless in New York. But this one really takes the cake. Do you guys think it'd make my journal a NSFW zone if I made an icon out of her pretty, pretty chest?

Title: Works and Plays Well With Others
Author:
[livejournal.com profile] hth_the_first
Fandom: SGA
Pairing: The whole blessed team
Notes: Who doesn't love team!porn?

miss_pryss: (Badass Simon Tam)
This is going to be big, and take a while, because there are so many Yuletide stories I want to make a note of! (I'm assuming that most of you guys have been through the archive pretty thoroughly already, so this really is mostly for my own reference.)

miss_pryss: (Highland cow)
I'm trying to clear out my tabs in preparation for opening about 8,362,758,275 tabs worth of yuletide stories. Firefox gets pissy if I have too many open, so here's some things I enjoyed and thought you guys might enjoy as well.

A Strange Lull, by [livejournal.com profile] marinarusalka. PotC, Jack/Norrington. I love this pairing, but it is HARD to find good fic, for some reason. Well, this is good. Really good. Circumstances create a necessary truce between two enemies. Very funny, VERY HOT. And great Norrington POV.

Literacy, by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden. ST:DS9, Garak/Bashir. Very hot, very sweet. This is a pairing I don't read often but I really really enjoyed this story.

The Theory of Acquired Characters, by [livejournal.com profile] toomuchplor. SGA, Rodney/John. An AU in which Rodney is sent to cosy up to Professor!John and convince him to join the Atlantis expedition.

Blasphemy, by [livejournal.com profile] spike21. Brimstone, Satan/Zeke. So short, with so much punch. Yikes.

Death Note fan art, by [livejournal.com profile] anemonesque. This is a GORGEOUS painting of L. Just the way I imagine him.

Eight Crazy Pilots Serenity Didn't Keep, by [livejournal.com profile] tassosss. So many great crossover pilots! Luke, that lady from Farscape, that other lady from BSG, and, of course, Wash. This is pretty great. Especially the Luke part.

Happy Inclusive Holiday Season!, from [livejournal.com profile] mutecornett. Katamari Damacy, baby!

And now, YULETIDE TIME!!!
miss_pryss: (Snowy with bone)
I'm in my parents' house right now. My grandmother has just moved to their neighborhood (so that she can be near them as her health declines) and they are leaving town tomorrow; hence I am here to help granny move in and keep her company while my folks are gone.

It's colder here than in NYC and my parents' cat HATES ME. Hey, that rhymed.

Here are some links to things that have made me very happy recently.

JEEVES & WOOSTER RECS AHOY-HOY. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots and [livejournal.com profile] goss for links to many of these.

Jeeves and the Question of Fidelity, by [livejournal.com profile] weaselwoman13. Bertie meets a friendly young man during a night of drunken revelry and soon the Wooster-Jeeves love nest is threatened with blackmail. Also, Bertie plays the piano a lot -- an iron-clad kink of mine, if anything associated with this fluffiest of fluffy fandoms could be called anything so serious and intense as a "kink", let alone an ironclad one.


Jeeves and the Beauty of Labour, by [livejournal.com profile] woffproff. Jeeves scares yet another determined young lady away from Bertie, and in so doing reveals something about himself. OK, wait, that actually summarizes about 95% of the stories in this fandom, so here's something more concrete: Jeeves has a niece, who takes photographs. There.


Jeeves and the Blessed Indiscretion, by [livejournal.com profile] astolat. Bertie does some (rather successful) detective work on behalf of Jeeves, who is threatened with blackmail. Here, I especially liked this bit, where Bertie is still trying to figure out what Jeeves was being blackmailed for:

'Jeeves,' I said firmly, 'this is bloody nonsense. If you are unfit, the rest of the world had better blow its brains out now and put an end to the music. What is it, murder? Although really, I can't believe you would be so clumsy as to let a second-rate weasel like this Foxley catch you at it, if it were.'

'I am an invert,' he said.

'Oh, ah,' I said, and blushed.



Jeeves and an Excess of Prudence, by [livejournal.com profile] rowen_r. This story has everything. A goose, an almost uncannily flattering suit, a pining Jeeves, a charming heroine, a handsome butler, and one of my favorite songs (which Bertie plays on the piano. SCORE!)


Wooster's School for Wayward Girls, by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63. Sappho, people. Sappho. Also, a very sweet epiphany on Bertie's part. I heart this story. I heart it so.


My Man Jeeves, by Sue. I love this story with an unreasoning passion. It was the first J&W I ever read and I have large portions of it memorized. Here's a favorite bit:

Jeeves was generally out about his marketing at this hour, and so breezing into the des. res. in a jolly state of all's-right-with-the-world but carrying the handicap of a distinctly rumbly tum I formed the notion of building myself an omelette. I mean it can't be all that difficult, Jeeves does it all the time. I've seen him do it. All you do is crack the eggs into a sort of dish thingy, chivvy them around for a while with a fork, slosh in a quantity of milk and then Bob is one's mater's frater, so to speak.


All That Glitters Is Not Gold, by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay. This one actually gets a little explicit, which is unusual for this fandom -- but only as explicit as it's possible to get and still be anywhere near Bertie-voice. It's pretty charming. I especially like it when Bertie describes his *own ear* as "shell-like".


Jeeves Makes A Move, by [livejournal.com profile] veronamay. Bertie in his pajamas, sitting on the floor in front of the fire late Christmas Eve, with a wistful expression... seriously, people, this story could have gone on to describe how Jeeves fisted him while Bertie wept crystalline tears and I still would have loved it. You'll be happy to know it doesn't feature any fisting or crystalline tears, though. Just cuteness. Sort of smarmy, which is something I usually don't go for but I totally buy it in this fandom.


Jeeves and Wooster Fan-Art/Story thingie/Cryptographic Romance, by [livejournal.com profile] lucylou. Check it out, man. It's AWESOME.


As Virtuous Men Pass, by [livejournal.com profile] flambeau. I don't only love this story for its final line, but I surely do love that final line. Go read it and then come back and we can talk about how hilarious and hot and unexpected and hot that is. I mean, just think about it. cut for pornographic speculation about what comes next. )

Time for the more-or-less weekly recs n links jamboree. Y'all ready? Okay, then.

Already Seen, by [livejournal.com profile] in_wintertime
SGA, gen

A chilling little addendum to "Progeny" -- what was that "intimate torture" in Rodney's brain all about? I kind of wanted to cry after reading this, and not for the usual reasons.



Qin Ge, by Jayne Leitch
Firefly, gen

Another gloomy little biscuit -- or maybe it's just my mood tonight. A simple little Firefly AU with a reversal of roles between Simon and River. Short and effective.



Applied Mathematics, by [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone
SGA, Rod/MENSA-John

I don't know if I entirely grok [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone's take on alternate-universe "Rod" McKay in this addendum to "McKay and Mrs. Miller", but I do like MENSA-John a great deal. This is sort of half-story, half character study, and it works very nicely indeed.



Fanart: "Teyla says they're mostly harmless.", by [livejournal.com profile] jedoch
SGA, gen

There are alien okapi in this picture. And they just loooove Rodney.



Fanart: Illustration by [livejournal.com profile] mutecornett, for [livejournal.com profile] trinityofone's Something Wicked
SGA, McKay/Sheppard

If you haven't read the story, go read it now, before you look at this amazing piece of art. They're a perfect pair, each augmenting the other. I'm especially amazed by how immediately recognizable John's nine-year old dream self is.



Higher Education by [livejournal.com profile] resonant8
The Breakfast Club, Brian/Bender

I can't believe I hadn't read this story before, because the idea that it's been sitting out there in the world without my brain claiming it and chewing it up and loving it just sort of baffles me. John Bender grows up and gets a life and somehow, that life comes to include Brian, whose car has a license plate that says "Brain". I love them both so very, very much.

Did I mention it's also scorchingly hot? 'Cause, um, whoa.



Pieces tossed aside, by [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl
Firefly, Mal/Simon (peripherally)

Apocalypse fic, and a pretty grim one at that. Not the most id-rewarding read, unless apocalypse is your thing, but pretty great anyhow.
miss_pryss: (S is for slash)
OMFG my life is so, so lame right now. I got home from work at 7:30 and then from 8:30 8:45 to 9:00 I will read to Mr. Smarty-Pants from The Hobbit. Then at 9:00 we will turn the lights out. He will sleep, and I will stare at the ceiling, thinking about the romance novel idea I have which only seems feasible and not incredibly stupid at night, in the dark.

So, because I only have 15 minutes to compose this post, a super-fast purging of my Firefox tabs recs post!


Big Damn Zombies, Sir, by Shrift
Firefly, gen.

I heart this story. It's so fucking funny, and bizarrely sweet. Jayne gets turned into a zombie. The crew's banter is spot-on and really funny, and the punch-line moment is really fantastic. Indespensible for anyone who likes zombie stories, or Firefly. Or both!



Irreconcilable Differences, by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock
SGA, het and slash (Teyla/OMC, Rodney/John)

Remember that spoiler from McKay and Mrs Miller about Teyla's love-life? Well, Pru has a series of awesomely sweet snippets about what might come of that. Together, they form an awfully sweet fic. Read them here, here, and here.

Sergeant Yates may be my favorite OMC evaaar.



5 Times Arthur Dent Lost His Towel, by [livejournal.com profile] makesmewannadie.
Hitchhiker's Guide, slash (Arthur/Ford)

Just a lovely little series of vignettes, so perfectly of that world. I love Adams, and I love Arthur, and I love Ford, and I love this fic.



Non-Fannish but cool: A blog about what significant objects people keep on their desks. Check it out and submit something yourself! I haven't yet, but I just may.



Ghosts, by [livejournal.com profile] flambeau
X-Files, slash. (Mulder/Krycek)

The first fic that really meant something to me. This is a fic that bent my twig. I'm rereading it now in fits and starts. It stands up to the test of time, I'll tell you what.



This whole experiment of green by [livejournal.com profile] harriet_spy
DCU, slash (Batman/Nightwing)

Another all-time favorite. I couldn't think about mangos without blushing for weeks after reading this fic for the first time. Beautiful and so true to beloved characters.



ESRfDmTWSP:oDyslaNAMBLAm, by [livejournal.com profile] brown_betty
DCU, slash implied (Tim/Kon, or Robin/Superboy depending on your outlook)

If you were wondering, the title is an acronym for Eight Simple Rules for Dating my Teenage Ward Sidekick Partner: or, Dude you sound like a NAMBLA member.



...Well, now I'm behind schedule, as it seems to be 8:44. Off to the Hobbit! Good night, y'all.

Time to weed out my Firefox tabs again, kids! Here are some mostly-fannish tidbits for you to chew on.

The Dark Side, by Astolat
SGA: Jedi Rodney/Sith Lord John

I never really figured out the formal difference between a universe mash-up and a crossover, but this is one of them. Rodney's a technologically inclined Jedi and John's a sort of accidental Sith with the best spaceship ever. They meet, they fall into bed, and, because this story is by Astolat, it has possibly the most satisfying ending ever.


Revenge, by Astolat
SV/DCU: Clark/Lex

Another Astolat mashup, this time of two different Superman canons. I love this story because Lex almost entirely his comics-continuity self: evil and corrupt and President. But Clark has that Smallville gleam, and the SV backstory is there as well. *Such* a great combination.

The Joker's evil scheme goes wrong (or very, very right) and now the entire world has seen the broadcast footage of a chemically-induced, uh, *encounter* between Lex and Supes. The way Lex spins it -- and quietly falls apart -- is incredibly entertaining, as is Clark's reaction.


Successful Trade, You Can't Always Get What You Want, and this snippet, by Jssangel
SGA: Weir/Lorne

SEXXX DRUGS. Suddenly I am all about Weir/Lorne, and it's entirely due to this story. There's just something so awesome about how much Lorne likes to look at Weir's ass.


Hot Library Smut. This isn't fannish per se, but I bet a bunch of you will enjoy looking at these photographs of the most beautiful and ornate libraries in the world.


Our House (A Family Drama), by ebrooklynw
SGA vid

This vid is insanely fucking hilarious and also mildly offensive. Enjoy.


Bell Curve snippet, by Pru
SGA: Rodney/John

A little update to Pru's wonderfully engaging and satisfying "Bell Curve" universe. John's home from the war, and it's good timing -- Rodney's just finished laying the foundation to the shed John is going to sleep in once he's back.
