Recommendations – Week of 12 June 2011

This is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too.

 

Avengers

  • Call Me Old Fashioned by Oohshasha
    (Thor/Steve)
    PG-13: Slash, Cuteness
    Five times Thor tried to woo Steve and failed. One time that it worked. Adorable, though a touch abrupt at the end.

 

Fast and the Furious

  • Caught by Twilighthdfan
    (Brian/Dom)
    NC-17: Slash
    A very small and yet profound made by changing the target of a single sentence can change an entire moment.

 

Trigun

  • Visible Scars by Andraste
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    NC-17: Slash
    Maybe it’s the warmth of the sun finally driving him crazy, or dehydration making him light-headed. Nick doesn’t care. By the time they reach a town and find a cheap hotel, he’s so far gone that when the girl behind the counter winks at him and asks if he wants her to charge them by the hour or the night, he just blinks

Avengers

  • Thirst by Velithya
    (Steve/Tony)
    PG: Slash, Blood, Vampires
    I’m a sucker for a good vampire story, and while this one doesn’t get into the hows and whyfors, it certainly puts a character you wouldn’t expect to in a vampire situation.

 

Natruto

  • Ties That Bind by Miko no Da
    (Kiba/Neiji)
    R: Slash, Mild Hurt/Comfort
    Decidedly fun story in which Neiji and Kiba become bound by a jutsu and learn not only to tolerate each other, but to appreciate each other.

 

Trigun

  • Fait Accompli by MissJinny
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    R: Slash, Violence, Hurt/Comfort
    Wolfwood dosen’t die. I don’t feel like more needs saying. Certain episodes of the show just happen to be above my notice.
  • Sweating Bullets by Tenshi
    (Vash/Wolfwood)
    NC-17: Slash, Hurt/Comfort
    Improvised medical services followed by debauchery

 

Recommendations – Weeks of 22 & 29 May 2011

his is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too. This pair of weeks I read very little online due to homework, school finishing (I’m a college Grad now!) and a week long Vacation outside the country in which I didn’t have a ton of interneting time.

 

Crossovers

  • Traditional by DameRuth Sherlock (BBC)/His Dark Materials
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Fluff
    The Holmes at Christmas. With Daemons and John Watson in tow.

Sherlock (BBC)

  • Shadows on the Wall by AraSigyrn
    (Sherlock/John)
    PG: Slash, Awesome paranormalness
    I adore anything paranormal in this fandom, and this story is exceptional. It contains great buildup to get to the point where John’s secret needs revelation and employs a wonderful AU rewrite of much the main storyline. A stellar work.
  • Show Me How to Stop Running by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    I have this thing for supernatural sherlock stories, I really do. Werewolves in this one, it’s very much fun. Also, DI Lestrade in a positive light. gotta love that.
  • I Used to Live Alone Before I Knew You by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    Sherlock as a demon. Amazing story with a great deal of feeling to it. Worth a read.
  • They tell me their secrets (will you tell me yours too) by etothepii (Stochastical)
    (Sherlock/John)
    PG: Slash, Paranormalness
    I completely want a sequel to this. Technomancer John is just fun.
  • Lupercalia ‘verse by Mad_Maudlin
    (Sherlock/John)
    R: Slash, Paranormalness
    Such a fascinating universe. I <3 werewolves.
  • An Addition to the Family by i_know_its_0ver
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash
    Because everyone needs a dog.
  • That thing you like by misspamela
    (Sherlock/John)
    NC-17: Slash
    I’ve long been a sucker for a holiday story, but this one is extra fun and very well written.

 

Crossovers

  • Two Doctors, A Nurse, A Detective and A Scot by WritingispudyDoctor Who, Sherlock (BBC) (Sherlock/John, Amy/Rory)
    G: Slash, Het, Humor
    Epic hilarious and clever-offs between the galaxies two cleverest beings. Also, deerstalkers are cool.

Recommendations – Week of 8 May 2011

In an effort to get back into thinking more about what’s what and what I read/ect… I’m sharing things again. This is not everything I read, just those things that stick out and I consider work retaining a record of. Things I think others should read, too.

Sherlock (BBC, 2011)

  • Black Ice by Elvendork
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Hurt/Comfort
    A pretty little hurt comfort piece with everyone in character.
  • An Idle Quest by coloredink
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash
    An adorable little tale in which Sherlock takes the initiative to be romantic.
  • Bells Are Ringing by Basingstoke
    (Sherlock/John)
    G: Slash, Schmoop
    So cute. So much fun. Mycoft makes Sherlock French. Absolutely made me giggle.
  • Lab Book by Sam Storyteller
    (Sherlock/John)
    NC-17: Slash
    I adore this one. Characterization is dead on and that can be hard when they’re acting so cute.

Four Seasons Drabble – MiniJOLNIR

Series: Four Seasons

Title: Post-ES & Pre-AC Drabble – MiniJOLNIR
Rating: PG
Pairing: Grif x Simmons
Warnings: Mild Language

Summary: … Grif & Simmons. A Cat. and Donut.
(I can’t say much more without giving too much away.)

Special thanks go to [info]miss_poppet, who has offered up her services and does a wonderful job as the Beta of the series!

Author’s NotesThis came about during the writing of the Cats Drabble that precedes it. I’d originaly brainstormed the cat as a silly little enemy for Grif, that no one would ever support him in disliking. I showed the Drabble to a certain fundamentalist Christian Sounding board who, for some reason, tolerates my throwing slash-related stories at him on the condition that I censor things a bit. The Cats Drabble was perfect for it, a fun way for me to share the universe in a situation where I didn’t have to be the least bit careful about what parts of the story I sent his way. MiniJOLNIR sprang from his mind unbidden, and the rest is history. Crueler became an immediate and permanent member of the cast (rather than an experimental potential bit part) for nothing less than my own amusement.

Four Seasons Drabble – Cats

Title: Post-ES & Pre-AC Drabbles – Cats & MiniJOLNIR

Four Seasons Drabble – Cold

Series: Four Seasons
Title: Post-ES & Pre-AC Drabble – Cold
Rating: PG
Pairing: Grif x Simmons
Warnings: Mild Language

Summary: Grif reviews debriefing documents immediately after he and Simmons return to Blood Gulch.

Author’s Notes: I wrote for the soul purpose of getting to use the final line. *snicker* And since I felt like releasing something else while I’m fiddling around doing nothing tonight. After spending forever between the Social Security Administration Office and the Department of Transportation… I need to do something fun 🙂

Four Seasons Drabble – Language

Series: Four Seasons
Title: Post-ES & Pre-AC Drabble – Language
Rating: G
Pairing: Grif x Simmons
Warnings: Fluff?

Summary: Simmons looks to resolve something that’s annoyed him in the past.

Author’s Notes[info]vadadaca recently made a Post that mentioned Four Seasons in such a warm and fuzzy way that I couldn’t help but cave and post one of the various drabbles I’ve been writing early! They’re set between Eternal Summer, but before Autumn Colors begins…

AM willing to take prompts that are as detailed or as vauge as you’d like, though I don’t swear to take everything, just what inspires me.

Eternal Summer – Ch. 11

Series: Four Seasons
Title: Eternal Summer
Chapter: 11 – Something Resembling An Ending
Rating: PG
Pairing: Grif x Simmons
Warnings: Swearing

Summary: Simmons isn’t the only one who’s not completely human.

Author’s Notes: Good lord, has the ride been fun… Maybe a bit bumpy until Miss Poppet signed on to consult… But enjoyable beyond what I expected. And considering I wasn’t expecting much feedback and people wise for an AU as weird as mine… *snicker* I’d just like everyone who’s been reading to know I’ve appreciated every moment… Which is part of why I worked in my free time to get a chapter out before the wedding (well… I needed a distraction that would let me unwind, too).

AM currently collecting prompts that might be used to create drabbles. If you’d like to give one, feel free to be as vague or detailed as you want. I may or may not use them. They can be set Before, during or after Eternal Summer… But in accordance with the fact that the sequel, Autumn Colors, will be showing up in the next few months I’ll be avoiding things that would having me writing beyond where that is set to start.

Anyways, ENJOY!
