Oh look, fanfic! It's been a while...

BtVS, Closer to God Demons, current or former -- so much easier in bed. No white lies, no romance, only the most literal statements of desire. Lilah started out with tenderness, but Anya didn't even want that.

Dead Like Me, five dresses Daisy Adair wouldn't have wanted to die in 2. Brown and orange ankle-length batik print, 1972. Choked on a peyote button while everyone else kept on singing. They thought she was seeing visions.

The Devil Wears Prada, She Likes a Prizefight Miranda looked up again, and the look on her face had gone from uncertain to downright bewildered. "I watch for you every day," she said. "You said things to me that I have never allowed another human being to say without reprisal, and…I still watch for you to walk by. I came to your newspaper office to…and then…" She shook her head, raised a hand to rub at her right temple, and looked at Andy pleadingly. "Can you tell me why I am doing these things, Andrea?"

Harry Potter, 120 Weeks of Azkaban "842 days after people first reported having seen early chapters of a naughty novel set in the wizarding world, notes simultaneously appeared in Fortescue's and the Department of Magical Transportation announcing to a porn-addicted public that there would be no more installments." Various parirings.

House, Things To Do Before You Die "On the fifth day, House wallpapers the windshield of Wilson's Volvo with ads for very expensive Italian cars, the yellow post-it, "#2 - Buy an absurdly expensive car," tucked neatly behind one of the windshield wipers. It takes Wilson half an hour and some awkward jumping over the hood to get all of it off." In which Wilson turns thirty-eight and a half, thinks about kittens, and doesn't have a midlife crisis. But not necessarily in that order.

House, Lazy "She's going to be admitted to her top pick for med school, or batter down the dean's door to find out the reason why. The reason, if it turns out there is one, might be Greg House." Cuddy/House.

House, Ghosts "This isn't, never has been, some Hollywood romance, so he doesn't nearly run her down in a fit of absent-mindedness, and she doesn't slip away like the dreams he reaches for each morning." Wilson/Cuddy, Paris.

House, Survival, Inquiry, and Sophistication "The history of every major galactic civilization tends to pass through three distinct and recognizable phases, those of Survival, Inquiry and Sophistication, otherwise known as the How, Why, and Where phases. For instance, the first phase is characterized by the question 'How can we eat?', the second by the question 'Why do we eat?' and the third by the question, 'Where shall we have lunch?'" House/Wilson

Jeeves & Wooster, Faint Heart, Fair Maiden Honoria Glossup/Madeline Bassett "Madeline ducked her golden head and smiled up through her eyelashes appealingly. 'I know I'm just a silly, but...won't you stay a moment? I feel somehow as though we were meant to be friends, the two of us.'" Femmeslash for teh win!

Kormanfic (I want To Go Home), Supervision "I don't suppose that you would be able to tell me why I've already escaped from Alcatraz once this summer, and you haven't even bothered to show up yet?"

SGA, Happily Ever Five ways Teyla and Sora got a happy ending. After the truth, after the lie, after the storm, after the war, after long silence. Teyla/Sora. (Words cannot encompass the awesome. Seriously.)

SGA, Penitent "At night she wept in her sleep as well, and sometimes woke up with her hands bitten and bloody, as if she had tried to take revenge on them. How comforting it would be, to blame only her hands, or the fingers that pulled the trigger." Fantastic Teyla fic.

SGA, An Earthly Knight He sat down, leaning over and looking at his reflection for a while, frowning. He felt the tip of his ear. They were always that pointed? he wondered vaguely, not sure why it should bother him. I always had those spots, too, right? Tiny faint spots of iridescence just under the skin on either side of his neck, disappearing up under his hair, vanishing under his shirt. He pulled at his collar, trying to look down his body to see how far they went. He was willing to admit that it was a little odd that he didn't already know that.

Sports Night, Doing It Natalie knows something, and she wants to tell many, many people.
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (HCL not a shed freak)
Here, have some random fic links.

DS, The Food of Love In which Ray runs a catering company, and Fraser is having a wedding to be catered. AU.

DS, Pas de Deux In which Ray runs a dance studio, and Fraser takes lessons.

Heroes, Traces Hiro/Ando. "He would have three different apartments in New York City, and he knew their locations and color schemes, their narrow horror-movie hallways and pervasive odors. Some patterns were harder to grasp, however. Twin beds in the first apartment, exchanged for one creaky queen-size that engulfed his third New York bedroom. Sounds in the bathroom that he couldn't account for as he spied on his own future habits."

House/SG1, Hotel Sex Daniel/House. "Inevitably, Dr. Jackson comes looking for him. House has moved over to the buffet. There's shrimp. He has, so far successfully, defended the shrimp bowl from unwanted incursion. Unfortunately, it's impossible to juggle the needs of a drink, a silly little plate, and his cane, so he can either eat or keep moving." (And make sure you click through the link at the end to get to the epilogue-y bit afterwards.)

Torchwood/Jeeves and Wooster Timely Advice "Mr. Harkness, I regret to inform you that Mr. Wooster will be unable to accept your interesting invitation, as I have taken the liberty of disposing of your note without informing him of it. R. Jeeves"

Torchwood, That Old Black Magic "Ianto makes coffee, drinks coffee, shares coffee, buys coffee, spills coffee, ruins coffee, loses all taste for the stuff, and learns a few things along the way."

And now, I really should go to bed. Good god, I need a weekend.
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (Default)
La, la, la. Down to twelve windows of tabs instead of fourteen. Expect more fic recs sporadically, as I get to it.

BtVS, The Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking Oz/Xander "This is Daniel. Daniel's eighteen years old, a pretty bad bass player and a pretty good Duke Nukem player, and his friends call him Oz. When he was a kid, his friends were geeks and nerds. When he got to high school, he was friends with the same geeks and nerds, but now they played instruments which made them cool, somehow. About a year ago, he made friends with a new set of geeks and nerds, but this group fought demons instead of playing instruments. Usually Daniel -- shall we call him Oz, as his geeky, nerdy friends do? -- is very easygoing, but lately he's been quite the cranky puppy."

Discworld femmeslash ficlets, City Watch and Monstrous Regiment characters.

Discworld/HL, Death and Taxes The hair on the back of his neck stood to attention, but his body, better-trained, remained in the sprawling, curiously graceful seated position on the sand. "I haven't talked to you in years," he said, grateful for the terror that numbs the senses.
MY, YES, IT HAS BEEN A LONG TIME. NOT SINCE YOU WERE USING MY NAME, I BELIEVE.

DW, Waiting to Happen Ten/Rose, "For once it all goes according to plan. There are no alien invasions, no startling discoveries of history gone awry. Just the two of them amidst the throngs of carefree tourists on holiday, just the two of them blending in."

DW, when she came back she was nobody's wife Rose/Rose "She turns a corner and it's her room, but she's already in it. The other her raises a finger to her lips, and she clutches the object in her hand convulsively rather than let it fall and raise an alarm. (She trusts herself instinctively, even if time travel has taught her so much more than that). The other her smiles, lips wide, gleaming rows of teeth, and it's a predator's smile, but she can't help smiling back."

DW/SGA, Taking Time "It didn’t really matter what he called himself as far as John was concerned, he just wanted to know if they were about to be invaded by cheerful Englishmen in blue police cubicles."

GA, Palimpsest "This is them, together. This is Addison, curled around Meredith while she talks and talks about everything and anything but the fact that she's lying in her ex-boyfriend's bed and his wife is running her fingers over the curve of her hipbone."

Good Omens fanart, What is it good for? Pepper, War. Hee.

House, Maui Gold Wilson takes House home for dinner with the parents. "No, not that. That," House said, pointing at Wilson's left hand. "You appear to have a growth on your ring finger. Looks like precious metal. Either I need to start mining you, or you're wearing your wedding ring." "Oh, that," Wilson replied nonchalantly, pointedly keeping his eyes anywhere but on House. "So?" "Well, I just thought that wearing one symbolically declared your eternal love for your significant other. And that thing hasn't left the windowsill in my kitchen for the past three weeks, so I'm assuming your parents don't know about Julie yet," House said carefully.

House snapshot "It starts when House spends a solid forty minutes looking for his Xbox, he sees the Post-It note on the back of Wilson's DVD player saying: CONSIDER THIS YOUR COMEUPPANCE."

House, Eight Days "The Macramé for Dummies book is crammed between three sets of referral paperwork and a note from transcription. Wilson stares at it half a beat before he opens the cover and a note drops out. It reads HAPPY JEW CHRISTMAS in House's distinctively disastrous handwriting."

I Want to Go Home (Kormanslash), This is going to be A Very Long Summer Rudy/Mike. "In the course of his friendship with Rudy Miller, Mike Webster had seen some terrible things – dawn over a small lake in Ontario from the vantage point of a rapidly disintegrating raft; a conga line of camp counsellors, red-faced and jovial, shaking their collective tails to ‘Lion Sleeps Tonight’ led by Rudy himself; on innumerable occasions, the cumulative garbage created by 200 or so healthy young males trapped on an island together; and, though thankfully only blurrily recollected, on the weekend after they graduated high school, the interior of what Mike was pretty sure was a bar full of transsexuals in lumberjack shirts. None of these had really prepared him for the horror that met his eyes as he stepped off the bus at the Camp Algonkian Island dock." Rudy and Mike are clones for the summer. Awesomely perfect in both tone and plot.

Jeeves and Wooster, Jeeves and an Excess of Prudence "After this, an onlooker might have observed a certain froideur in the atmosphere chez Wooster, despite Jeeves’ customary inscrutableness and my own decision to sweep the whole thing under the rug. The camaraderie between us had been put on the back burner, so to speak. Thinks were strained. All was not right with the state of Denmark. Jeeves took to acting as if I was something rather disgusting he would prefer not to have to look at. As time progressed, and the Suit and Prudence continued to hold sway, his “Indeed sir?” began to acquire a tone which would have chilled lemonade." Slash.

Jeeves and Wooster, The Matter of the Bed "Really, sir, I fear that you might find cause for admonition were I to serve as your bedfellow," Jeeves said.

Narnia/Muppets I'm going to go back there someday "Once upon a time there were many Muppets living in a very big house. And four of those Muppets were Kermit, Piggy, Pepe, and Gonzo. Gonzo was not the smallest- that would be Pepe- but he was the strangest, and sometimes he felt very alone. After all, all the other Muppets knew what they were: frog, pig, king prawn. But Gonzo was just a Gonzo. He didn't quite fit in. One day, all the Muppets were playing Hide and Seek in their house..."

SPN, Two For One Pairing: Threesome -- Dean/Brandy/Brandy's friend from Provenance. "So when it became crystal clear after a couple of beers, a phone number and a surprisingly strong grip high up on his thigh that Brandy ("with a Y") and her friend Tania ("with an I") were perfectly willing to come as a package deal, it seemed only fair to offer the blonde to Sam. Sam liked blondes. Dean liked brunettes. It didn't take higher math to figure out which one to toss Sam's way."

SPN, When Siblings eAttack
Imp67: is this sam
Imp67: sam winchester who is soooooo hot
SamIAm: Whoever this is, I'm really busy right now. If you have something to say...
Imp67: i heard you can suck whole watermelons through a garden hose
SamIAm: HEY. WTF?
Imp67: And you're so badass when you're at a loss for words, Sammy
SamIAm: GODDAMNIT DEAN

Okay, I still have seven windows of open tabs, but they're, um. Less densely packed than before.

Rick Mercer is my seekrit TV boyfriend.

If you keeping refreshing the main page at www.neilgaiman.com, eventually you'll get a picture of Neil witha plushy Cthulhu on his head.

[livejournal.com profile] heresluck is sharing Monday poems, yay! Last week's is Trying To Raise the Dead. And this week... When I was in high school, we were instructed to bring in a Canadian poem for English class. One of my classmates brought in Carrots.

These Poetry Month ecards from Endicott Studio are fantastic. So are the poems, like Journeybread Recipe by Lawrence Schimel ("1. In a tupperware wood, mix child and hood. Stir slowly. Add wolf.")

Speaking of poetry (only a month late), the first two Edna St. Vincent Millay poems here do indeed make sense after that snippet of biography I caught on CBC in the car. (And I got to where I was going JUST as they were discussing her many conquests in her all-female college...)

Portland changes its name for a day

And truly inspired, [livejournal.com profile] violetisblue writes ODE TO A SUPERMARKET CHECKER WHO FLATLY REFUSED TO BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAID THE SINGLE YELLOW FRUIT IN THE PLASTIC BAG WAS AN ATAULFO MANGO

Icons, mostly Doctor Who and Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

***

Angel/BtVS, techsupoort@demons.com "To: wrosenb@ucs.edu From: queenc@lanet.com Subject: Question" Epistolary and apocalyse-y mid-series goodness.

Firefly/Sandman, Everybody Dies Alone "You’re Death," he said. She smiled and tapped her nose. "But . . . ain’t you s’posed to be ugly?"
"I think you’re confusing me with dying," said Death wryly. "That can be an ugly business, I’ll admit."

GA, Christina commentfic "Cristina lost her virginity to a boy in high school, because it seemed like something to do."

GA, Seattle Grace's Scandalous Lesbian Affair, as Told Through Sports Terminology 1. First Base: When Izzie and Addison first kiss, they're arguing. Izzie starts respectfully disagreeing with Addison on the walk from a patient's room, until they're both too upset to continue to disagree respectfully, and Addison steers Izzie into an empty patient's room so she can lose her temper.

GO, Trials and Tribulations In which Aziraphale dodges evangelists.

House, Observations Did anybody else notice how Wilson still never got his DVD player back?

SN, The Memory of Hurts "Casey." Dan was earnest. "Just think of it as another assignment, okay? One where we got incredibly lucky with the travel agent, and we know that no one is gonna look at our expense reports."

SGA, Poltergeist "Sleep to sex in under ten seconds. Maybe I'm not sorry I woke you after all." Non-work-safe snippet.

SGA, Offer Extends to the Pegasus Galaxy "You'd think the mission reports would be enough to silence the gossip. Since Elizabeth just tends to sigh, shake her head and say 'I was warned about this, I can't say I wasn't prepared. I brought it on myself by agreeing to head this mission. Did you get the grain shipment?', you'd think they'd stop. But no, it just seems to fuel the nay-sayers."

SGA, 2010 "Just try to remember not to mention aliens in your acceptance speech." And a related ficlet, Class As

SGA, The Scientific Method
"Congratulations, Colonel, I suspect you've just managed to be the first person in history to have an accidental orgy." Ancient techology made them do it!

SGA, Headbangers Ball "Traditionally, Teyla’s people sing only on the most formal and solemnof occasions, mainly to commemorate the fallen. This is music like nothing she has ever known – fiercely, relentlessly joyful, tumultuous and noisy and disorderly, and it haunts her, a thunderous tide at theback of her mind. It feels blasphemous to sing. It feels necessary. She thinks she may know why this is."

SGA, Missionary Position The Wraith was looking at Rodney again, fixedly. "Proceed," it said. "Describe your non-lethal mating procedure." One of the funniest things I've read in a good, long while.

SGA, Hold Hands and Try To Look Sincere
"for a brief moment, John was utterly, utterly sure that Rodney was going to open his mouth again and say something completely and positively true and also completely and positively inappropriate and regarding their sometimes usually-when-under-alien-duress sex life." Hee! Much fun.

SGA, Welcome to the Working Week "Oh, and by the way, it's not actually your job to make coffee. I mean, it's not in your job description or anything. But I'm telling you now: make the coffee. First of all, it's something to hold over Dr. McKay's head, because technically you could stop and he'd shrivel up like a raisin. Second, the days here are twenty-eight hours long, so trust me, you are not going to make it through the period of adjustment without your friend and mine, caffeine. Third, you only have to make the first pot, and anything after that is their job-- yeah, I think the guy before me insisted on that. Anyway, when Dr. McKay is being mean, I usually make the first pot so it makes about a cup and a half. Then I have a big cup of coffee." Fantastically realized futurefic.

SGA, The Last Full Measure of Devotion "So he sets his teeth and lets it happen." Rodney dreams of a better world. Dark. (Easily the creepiest thing I've read since Seven Circles Twisting.)

Traders, Love and Kisses Grant learned about ‘kissing on the mouth’ when he was four. Pyjama’d and teeth brushed and tucked up in blanket next to his Nana on the couch, watching actors in a black and white and gray movie, he asked: "What are they doing?"

Wilby Wonderful, ficlet "Say you meet this genie, and he tells you can have whatever your heartdesire. Anything you want," Duck says, and then he waits.
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (TiW stupidity)
Firefly/SGA, Of Mistletoe and Other Magic "Kaylee's got the mischievous look in her eyes of a girl who's been to the botany lab and's been spreading mistletoe all 'round 'Lantis, and she can't keep the grin off her face when a tiny but extremely peevish mob catches up with her." Complications ensue, Atlantis-style.

Fried Green Tomatoes, The Night Idgie Threadgoode Fought a Vampire in Alabama "Idgie Threadgoode. You been gone three days. No word, no news. You are not going to walk into my restaurant and tell me you've been fighting vampires."

Good Omens fan art here. Crowley, Aziraphale, and a chess board.

House, three snippets "So there's a *person* in Exam Two; that doesn't mean he's a *patient*. What if he's not actually sick? What if he's here because he skipped work last week to go golfing and now his boss wants a doctor's note? Then he's not a patient, he's just lazy."

House, In Gear "What?" House assumed as innocent a look as he could muster. "I just think we ought to christen the car." Slash.

SGA, Twenty Random Facts About Atlantis 1. There’s a working ZPM recharger in McKay’s lab. It was mislabelled as a broken Ancient hairdryer. They’ll find it one day. (But the idiot who mislabelled it will have been Wraithed by then.)

SGA, Kept By Ourselves In Silence and Apart McKay had complained bitterly from the moment they were taken prisoner until the first time they took him away. When they brought him back he was beat up and quiet. Ronon had asked him if he was okay. McKay had said: "No." and when Ronon came over to look at him he said: "Don't."

SGA, Ring Out the Bells Sora/Teyla "Sora bit into an Athosian fruit, red and firm-fleshed. The spurt of tartness shocked her. She caught Teyla's eyes across the table and licked the juice from her fingers. Her heart tripped over itself, racing."

SGA, untitled snippet, When John turned into a giant bug, he refused to leave his quarters.

SGA fan art for A Beautiful Lifetime Event.

Sports Night, Sixteen Random Acts
"Dana, we've got like 16 random acts of unpredictability taking place in the last two hours in professional sports. Why do you think it's impossible for us to have film on any one of these?"
"Well, Casey, seeing that it's us, that we're five minutes nineteen seconds short on the show, and that we're on the air in 11 minutes, I would assume that God or someone has ordained that it's impossible for us to have film on any one of those 16 .. whatever you just said."
"Eleven minutes? Natalie just called 10."
"Natalie's wrong."
"She's wrong?"
Dan joined them and tapped his watch with authority. "Natalie's wrong."

This one's for [livejournal.com profile] chaleur23. There's a new fanfic community, dedicated to hockey slash. [livejournal.com profile] 2mins4slashing. Too perfect.

5ideways is an awesome web comic (that seems to be more comic book than comic strip style in its storytelling than than the author's other project, Friendly Hostility) "Something went wrong the night I died." Has a similar sort of feel to a Neil Gaiman story.

On Brokeback Mountain, cowboy movies, and latent homosexuality, from The Guardian.

Joss whedon on the future of TV "Many people have asked me, "Joss, what is the future of television? What will we watch? And how will we watch it? Surely you must know, for you are wise, and slender." I usually smile and say nothing, because I wasn't actually listening to the question. But it's a good one, and I think it's time I let you in on a few highlights of Television-to-Be."

Hmm, almost all my open links are SGA fic... (except for course development and library core collection stuff. Don't think I'll link to those here.)

Instructional, Part One, Part Two. The new personnel on Atlantis run into some... personality conflicts. "They like chocolate."


John, Zelenka, and a beach. Snark and character interaction ensues. Gen.

Care Packages Care packages from home. Sort of a SG-1 crossover. Love it! With the evil and the plotting, and the actual care packages...

Armstice John can't sleep. Carson waxes rhapsodic about home. Bittersweet and lovely, and gen.

Universal Gravitational Constant Rodney is home. And his cat was old. Just so's you've been warned.

SGA meta from [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock, on the military and the scientists, and canon vs fanon Rodeny.

Defensive Strategies is House fic. Women! They keep hitting on Wilson! House has a plan to deter even the most insistent...

Off to Edmonton for a few days, goin' to Animethon mostly to hang out with Edmontonian folk. Also visiting friends and relatives. Must pack!
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (deacon angel)
Library stuff:

School libraries underfunded: StatsCan "Poorly funded and understaffed school libraries are strikes against learning in the information age, said a Statistics Canada report released on Wednesday." (I could have told you that...)

Highlights from the BCLA Library Technicians and Assistants Interest Group (LTAIG) 2005 LTAIG Canadian Library Support Staff Survey are available here. The full survey should be up by summer.

The Urban Libraries Program looks like a cool idea: "To recruit and educate a diverse library
workforce using theory and hands-on work experiences in libraries throughout the community."

Fannish stuff:

Transcendental by [livejournal.com profile] astolat is more long, plotty SGA fic (I should really watch an ep or two...)

A gen House ficlet, Aftermath. Wilson, after sorting job application with House.

I'm reccing HCL for [livejournal.com profile] crack_van this month. Oh, the nostalgia!

Completely miscellaneous: The Time Traveler's Convention is a very cool idea.

And for now, that is all.

What with the whole general busy-ness and trip to Edmonton this weekend, I was almost a week behind on lj come Monday. And after spending most of the evening catching up, I have more than twenty open tabs.

(dumps a slew of links into lj)

Here's an interesting news article on accessibility from one of my library lists, Visually impaired struggle with smart machines.

Also, a New York Times article on how Nancy Drew is becoming a graphic novel. (You can go to bugmenot if you don't want to register to view it.)

From the Chronicle of Higher Education, Why Didn't I Get Hired, which is pretty much about academic libraries.

Tack-O-Rama is all fifties-style clip art and images, and is something that I think [livejournal.com profile] mimisgrotto would enjoy.

[livejournal.com profile] simplelyric posted
a selection of poems
from The Hell with Love: Poems to Mend a Broken Heart.

There's a new lj group for Twitch City, [livejournal.com profile] twitchcity,
which has resulted in the first season and the first ep of the second being available for download here. Also, Twitch City recs here.

Black Book is Ilyria/Dawn fic, and makes fantastic use of Buffy-verse mythology.

And a DS/HCL xover featuring Joe as a guiding angel.

Pathogenesis and Intervention by Shalott is House/Wilson fic, and clever, with funny bits.

[livejournal.com profile] queenzulu is posting about truly bad fic.

And though I've only had time to glace at it,
The Darth Side: Memoirs of a Monster, Journal of Darth Vader, Lord of the Sith and Servant to His Supreme Excellency the Emperor Palpatine
looks highly amusing.

I've been sending off job applications. I still need to do three more, but the postings don't close for any of them until the end of next week at the earliest, and one of them needs letters of reference I'm still waiting to hear back about. Also, must send off general letter to pricate school libraries.

Sigh.

Instead, I am going to poke at Alice/Nancy fic, and write angst and misunderstanding. (Poor Nancy...) I suspect this is why I couldn't get any further in the charmingly-titled "tiw-nancy-slash.txt." It's gotta be angsty, dammit! And is going to be longer than I'd originally thought. Hopefully, I'll actually finish it. Heh.
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (OTP)
.... for links? A whole chain of links? (Except they're not really linked to each OTHER, and are all unrelated.) A clamour? A slew?

Anyhow. I've got a bunch of tabs open, and I'll lose it all! forever! if my computer is unco-operative and crashes. So with no more further ado...

Buffy fic, The One in the Cave by [livejournal.com profile] eliade, Spike/Xander, kinda PWP-ish, but the set-up is incredibly amusing.

I still need to read Hawks and Hands by [livejournal.com profile] dsudis. A long and plotty Due South hockey AU!

Flying Blind is a lovely little bit of Due South fic from the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] speranza, written for the [livejournal.com profile] ds_flashfiction necking challenge. And the same challenge also produced Getting There by [livejournal.com profile] resonant8 which just made me smile.

Getting There is Firefly, a bit of Zoe/Wash sweetness. The last line is what did it for me. *g*

And some snarky House fic over here. Sort of House/Wilson.

On a non-fic related note, Neil Gaiman's got a new audio CD out! (covets)

I need to get dressed and get moving. Fooood...
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (OTP)
We attempted to play the Pretender drinking game with [livejournal.com profile] chaleur23 and [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu this weekend, and all failed abominably at even getting tipsy. I think we started too late at night or something, because there was ample opportunity. That, or we shouldn't have started with the really dramatic season opener ep...

My random links for the day are: a cute little Macdonald Hall fanfic snippet "As Free As the Wind", and for [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu, a Angel/Babysitters Club crossover, and for [livejournal.com profile] deireanach, a completely sex-free yet snarky House fic.

Also, U.S. Army being investigated by Rowling and Warner Bros over a Harry Potter parody comic on preventative maintenance. (And there are captiony things that say things like "Page 3: Using a dry wand..." *snerk*), and there's a new yuri (f/f anime fanfic) fanfic archive, Yuriville. There's only a few stories so far, but I'm hoping some more obscure fandom type stuff will go up.

Still need to show [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu some more This is Wonderland! (pets icon)

First off, Conflicts of Interest is the Smallville fic I've been talking about for a couple days, aka, Lex has a nine year old son. Highly amusing. Especially the bit with the powerpoint slides.

And On The Road is a fantastic Bruno and Boots fic by the same author, set a good ten years or more post-series. Bruno! Political campaign manager! Boots! High school English teacher! Angst! Sex!

Both are by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock, and she has easter eggs for the Smallville fic posted in her blog. Like the adorementioned powerpoint slides. Hee.

Some more fic: You Don't Have To Go Home, This rec's for [livejournal.com profile] joan_not_jaon. *g* Highlander/Harry Potter. Remus Lupin meets Amanda.

Wai! More House fic! On the Eight Day

And The Gargantuan Garden is a Lemony Snicket and Edward Scissorhands crossover.

Look, gay penguins!

Girl Power Fuels Manga Boom in U.S. from the New York Times (if you don't want to register, you can go to bugmenot.com to get a log-in and password). Also: Animania!, an article on the rising popularity of anime.

And I leave you with this, a bizarre, sexually suggestive Pocky commerical. I'm going to go crawl into my cozy bed with the nice, clean sheets. (As [livejournal.com profile] naked_bandit can attest, as she was on the phone listening to me get horribly tangled up wrestling the comforter into the quilt cover. "Help, I've lost one of the corners! Now I'm all tangled up in the quilt..." Heh. Anyhow. 'night!)

Hee!

Look! House slash! (By [livejournal.com profile] miriam_heddy, so it's y'know, really good!)

Much busy-ness. Much festive visiting-ness. Got just about everything wrapped and under the tree. (By tree, I mean tiny foot-high fake tree hung with anime keychains, since we never got around to getting a real full-size tree this year.)

Incidentally, same-sex marriage is now legal in Newfoundland. Yay!
