Here, have some of my favorite fics, panfandom-like. Some I've rec'd before (they are my favorites, after all), some I haven't. There are several others I'm trying to track down, so I'll be editing this.

WHY IS EVERYONE BRINGING THE COOKING PORN FIC LATELY? (and I don't mean sexing, okay, just cooking) STOP BEING AWESOME, MY LITTLE FOODIE BRAIN CAN'T HANDLE IT.

[livejournal.com profile] arlad with he drives me fuckin’ crazy (i am his everything), a schmoopy little ficlet, featuring accidental proposals or whatever.

and

[livejournal.com profile] essene with THIS, Home Cookin', a preslash foodporn dream, in which personal chefs are hired, superlative dinners are produced (BRAISED LAMB! CHOCOLATE POTS DE CREME! I'M SOLD, OKAY?), and the banter is fun.

Now I have to go and hunt up other food fic and make a themed recs list. Off the top of my head I can think of that Food Network one with the abrupt ending and Garlic and Butter (the Ratatouille one), and I bet there's plenty of good gen and wincesty cooking fics, too. I'm all excited about this now. Is it egomaniacal of me to include myself in that (I did write a gigantic one, after all)?



Also, much hilarity at [livejournal.com profile] spn_gossip. But no fights lately, which is kind of a bummer. Is it sick of me that I love when they fight?
unreckless: (SPN - Big Bang OMG what did I do)
I'm having WAY more trouble writing this fucking summary for Big Bang than I ever had writing the story itself. And that is certainly saying something.

The real story is always in what you don't say, but eventually all that silence fills you up and then something breaks. Maybe everything breaks. Brokeback Mountain with scalpels.

Which, obviously, says ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

Also, Jesus Christ, how in the fuck did Brock Kelly manage to shove his way into this story? No, seriously. He's Seth Vincennes's leading man.

*facepalm*




A couple of recs (one new, one quite old)

Heroes:
Scraps by [livejournal.com profile] mint_amaretto. Noah/Elle, Sylar/Claire mentioned. Adult.
He needs her just as much as his apple pie life and perfect family.

Run, don't walk to read this. This is the most chilling, in-character Elle I've ever read. Noah is perfect. Everything about this is amazing.

Supernatural:
Flood of Water by [livejournal.com profile] sevenfists. Sam/Dean. NC-17.
Fanfic cliche #37: Character X turns into a woman! Uh, this is not a comedy.

This is an old one I just stumbled across last night. It's spectacular. Girl!Dean. Just... spectacular.




EDIT: OMG, SOMEBODY WROTE BASEBALL J2 FOR J2_EVERAFTER. I HAVEN'T READ IT YET, BUT I DON'T EVEN CARE IF IT'S BAD. I NEED TO LAY DOWN.
unreckless: (SPN - Sam & Adam)
[livejournal.com profile] spn_gossip, I wish I knew how to quit you.

It's been so long since I've been really, properly drunk that I'm having a hard time writing a drunk scene. And I've never been angry, devastated, and stupid while drunk, so it's even harder.

WHY AM I SO MADE OF FAIL?

Oh, and a rec. I'm sure everyone and their mom has rec'd this on your flist but FOR GOOD REASON, OKAY?

A man with his insides out and outsides off by [livejournal.com profile] britomart_is. Sam/Dean. NC-17.
They say there are only two stories in the world: man goes on a journey, and stranger comes to town.

It's hard to get your brain around it at first, and I think need to read it again before I feel I've absorbed it enough to comment and all, but it's just fantastic.

Firstly, a rec:

Words for Snow by wanttobeatree. Sam/Dean. PG. Future!fic.

This is one of those things that after you finish reading you feel like you've just gotten a present you never knew you wanted. And also her response to my comment on it made me legit lol, so there's that, too.

Secondly, I had more thoughts about last night's episode, but they seem to have escaped me in the time between my thinking them in the shower earlier and now. I think the basic gist of it was that I really liked the kid, okay (and want many icons of him)? And that it made me love John a little more now.

Thirdly, thank you for all the head-patting and reassurances for my last thoroughly emo-tastic post about Big Bang. It means a lot to me!

Okay, I only watch this show casually, but I stumbled across this rec next to a rec for a fandom I do participate in, and I went, "Oh, what the hell," because I love me some NPH, so I clicked. and OH MY GOD. I'm in love. I'm using a J2 icon because it's the only icon I have that just... glows with affection.

Metal Heart by [profile] the_spin at [livejournal.com profile] kartography. How I Met Your Mother, Barney/Robin. R. Three parts.
she’s never heard a love story like this one.

This has the most fabulously in-character Barney and Robin EVER. Now, admittedly, this is the only HIMYM fic I've ever read, but I've seen enough of the show, and I think I can confidently say that [profile] the_spin has their voices down motherfucking PAT.

But seriously though, I have this horrible feeling that this fic is like reading, like, [livejournal.com profile] reccea's In Production or [livejournal.com profile] chash's Tractorbeam 'verse and then being set up to expect all J2 fics to be that awesome. Now I want MOAR Robin/Barney, but I don't if it's not like this, you know?

Go read this immediately:

A Little Pomp and Circumstance by [livejournal.com profile] miss_vacant. Dan/Blair
She felt the shift. Heard the scratch of a line being drawn behind them, separating then from now. As though her past was something she could discard like a too-tight pair of shoes at the end of the evening.

Dan Humphrey is my favorite Gossip Girl character (don't let my Chuck Bass icons fool you), and this is a lovely, soft Blair character piece set eleven years from now, when Blair returns to New York for Serena's wedding to an OMC.

Apparently it's taken until my junior year, but the liberal, environmentalist academia thing is really eating my brain. Going to a lecture tonight about carcinogens and the plastics/chemical industry (the Ohio River Valley is a huge chemical plant center). Not eating meat anymore if I don't know where it came from-- so luckily we have a farmer's market here that has local vendors who can certify that yes, they humanely raised that creature and butchered it themselves.

I think it comes from learning my rheumatoid arthritis is probably caused by the fact American society is too sterile and clean and obsessed with antibacterial stuff, leading to my bored and underworked immune system attacking my own joints, and that my menarche at nine years old is possibly the result of synthetic estrogens leaching from plastic baby bottles because my mother couldn't breastfeed... I need to do more research, but I think I'm going to do my 10-page research term paper for my History of Public Health Disasters class on the former topic.

And of course it's an icky, rainy day, so every joint in my body aches like hell. The knuckles in my hands are all swollen and stiff. God damnit, I'm twenty years old! This is ridiculous!

Onto happier stuff:

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] static_pixie!

Welcome new friends [livejournal.com profile] matty_parkman, [livejournal.com profile] ineffort, and [livejournal.com profile] morbidmuse!

And a J2 rec:

Edit by [livejournal.com profile] bittersplendor
And each time, with each touch that means more than it did before— before this, Jensen thinks, now there is this to lose.

I'm writing a scene in Deadsville/my Big Bang right now that's a lot like the argument/miscommunication the boys have in this, but it ends much happier here! :) This fic is a lovely little slice, but that line that doubles as the summary goes right to my gut and the places under my eyes that get hot when I want to cry. Go read it!
unreckless: (BBT - P&S Tick-tock)
Next person to use the word "queeb" in a fic wins everything.

The first person to make me an icon that says it wins something, too. I'm too lazy to climb off my loft and make it myself.

(oh, and read this while you're at it)

Music:: Dr. Horrible - Everything You Ever

I HATE YOU, RICH TEXT. I HIT YOU BY ACCIDENT AND YOU RUINED MY POST.

Anyway, a couple of things:
  • Anyone got time to actually full-on beta 10,000 words of ouchy J2 doctor AU (it has a happy ending, I promise)? This is probably the worst possible day to ask this, but I need to get this shit posted and away. It's not done yet (I'm at 8,500), but I have the end written and an actual outline, so I can knock it out during my two hour break tomorrow. I LOVE [livejournal.com profile] rebekahfair AND [livejournal.com profile] egotists AND [livejournal.com profile] estarmuerta!
  • Go read this, Seize the Day by [livejournal.com profile] arlad. Newsies AU for [livejournal.com profile] j2_everafter that I fell in love with so hard I immediately went and bid on her for Sweet Charity.
  • Which, by the way, is up to $8,055 as I'm posting this. HOMG.
  • Yucky, I have class at 9 AM.
