daemonluna: lazy wombat and a carrot (wombat)
I am using my happy wombat icon, for though I don't have carrots, I do have chocolate-dipped ginger. Mmmmm.

Links! Many, many links! More later, when I finish with the rest of my tabs.

Babysitter's Club, Postcardathon results. This one's for [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu.

BtVS, Miraculous "Giles, you have to do something," Buffy said, and there was more panic than whine in her voice. "I'm not ready for this! It's too much responsibility! I don't have room! I don't have those little walkie-talkies! I don't have--a college degree!"

BtVS, Fallen Princesses "Slayer!" Drusilla gasped through a split lip that trickled down blood. "Naughty slayer come to finish me off....the stars...! the stars....they whisper lies and.....no....no...no..."

BtVS/Angel, Burkle, W., & Calendar, J. (1995). A non-linear representation of eight months in the lives of two graduate students. Really, the title says it all.

DS, more kidfic from [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o here and from the same continuity by [livejournal.com profile] lalejandra here. Ray Vecchio died in June, two weeks after Carrie came home for the summer.

HP, Cedric Diggory is very very gay a love story told in screencaps.

SGA, Pegasus in Flight About the boy who wanted to fly.

SGA, Alterations John hadn't always wanted to be a doctor.

SGA, Still "On PX-3456 Ronon gave Sheppard a clump of dirt."

SGA, Office Space and Other Tools of the Villanious Plot For the [livejournal.com profile] undermistletoe challenge "The Billionaire's Bodyguard." “You made him wear a collar?” “Yes, though the bell was more the point of it really,” Rodney says, the corner of his mouth slanting into his distracted ‘idiots, idiots, why am I fixing the mistakes of idiots’ expression.

SGA, Bell Curve, 9/10 "You know I have this thesis I'm working on?" John asked sarcastically. "You're just looking for an excuse to cheat on me with Norton," Rodney shot back, and handed John a muffin. "Here, it's cranberry walnut. Eat it before I steal the top." And John would, because he recognized a love token from Rodney when he saw one.

SGA, The Top of the List Rodney comes to the rescue. “That guy was—look, you don’t have to deny what—happened to you, I think, I mean, I saw—“

SGA, The Spare When she pressed her back against the ridged back of her chair, her fingers white against the armrests, Elizabeth said, "It is your duty to the empire to marry Rodney McKay."

SGA, Feeding Frenzy The pairing is anyone/everyone. Incredibly un-work-safe, incredibly funny.

SGA, WWII desktop No, not fic, but damn nifty.

Young Wizards, drabble. The pairing? Lone Power/Nita.

Some Macdonald Hall quotes on icons.

[livejournal.com profile] girlwank, the watch journal for [livejournal.com profile] femslash_today, is collecting holiday fic challenges with femslash. So if you know any that need to be added to the list, let them know! (That would be things like the [livejournal.com profile] saffic holiday challenge!)

And speaking of challenges, there's The Alantis Urban Legend Slash Challenge.

A new SGA community, [livejournal.com profile] stargate_legos. Hee!

Cool Roman legion T-shirt from glarkware.

Neil Gaiman's blog: Here at www.neilgaiman.com we're painfully aware that, after five years of me blogging, we're alienating a whole new generation of blog-readers for whom a middle-aged male author maundering on about writing stuff is, frankly, pretty stale. We need a breath of fresh air, just like Winnie the Pooh. Therefore the rest of this blog entry will be written by Skippy, a fictional six-year-old tomboy and computer genius, with a small number of endearing catchphrases.

I wholeheartedly agree with [livejournal.com profile] spike21's 10 things that technology seriously needs to invent right now.

Same-sex marriage ruling a positive step South Africa will be the first African nation to legalize same-sex unions.

The American Library Association makes members pay the registration fee to speak at conferences. I cannot tell you how wrong this is. Gyah.

And now, I need to go get some shopping done. I am afraiiiid...
daemonluna: default icon, me with totoros (Default)
Huh, it's been a while. At least now I can close all my tabs, and make a dent in the bookmarked stuff. (Oh yes, there will be more later.) As usual, a bunch of Stargate: Atlantis fic, some Due South, miscellaneous others, and some truly random links.

Discworld, The Imperfect Mirror of Art "'Fine, fine,' growled Angua. 'Use the uniforms. But my likeness is off limits, do you understand? None of this "horny werewolf officer mooning the city" business. Vampire and werewolf lesbian officers? Werewolves hate vampires!'"

DS, Character sketches Fraser, Ray, and Ray tells us what they know. "Benton Fraser knows: how to tie a bowline knot, tiller's hitch, sheepshank or sailor's knot. Under ideal conditions, over four thousand stars can be seen with the naked eye. To make pemmican, slice your kill into long strips, knead in salt and smoke the meat over green twigs."

DS Ray Is Not Actually Graphing The History Of His Relationship With Fraser--That Would Be Pathetic, And Ray Is Not Pathetic--But If He Was Graphing It, Even Just In His Own Stressed-Out, Messed-Up Brain, It Might Look Something Like This See, if Fraser was a girl (lady, woman, whatever), Ray would have a) figured out they were having a Very Important Relationship Conversation, and also 2) known exactly what he was expected to say.

DS, Rosebud "Fraser had often ruminated on the likely circumstances of his death, and while 'trapped in an ice crevasse,' had certainly been one of them, he hadn't anticipated, 'while arguing with Ray Kowalski about Citizen Kane.' " Not deathfic, don't worry. Short and snappy.

DS, White Gloves and Wet Umbrellas, cover here. Young Stella and both Rays, and wee Frannie. Dance class and an unrealized bit of paths crossing.

DS/SGA Andthentheyhadsex #002 John/Fraser, hotel bar. Chatspam about how John Sheppard and Benton Fraser would hook up.

Firefly, Rain Dances, Little Dreamer, Therapeutic. AU, on a ranch somewhere in Montana. River/Mal.

Fried Green Tomatoes, Obligation "I wasn't sure what you wanted. I just knew what you had to get away from." Idgie was meeting her eyes now, but she was staring up defiantly, like she thought she was telling Frank Bennett. "I didn't really think about anything past getting you out of that goddamn house and into Julian's truck."

Grey's Anatomy, Two Beer Queer "A six pack of Corona, a couple of horny doctors, a pair of salmon surgery scrubs, and a redhead of questionable authenticity." Femmeslash, yay!

SGA, Bell Curve, or, Ladies Night at the Boom Boom Room, pt 6/? "In which Rodney does not believe in an elegant universe, Rodney and Jeannie actually have a moment, and John give Rodney a freebie."

SGA, Circle "John is a little bit intimdiated by how he looks when he's wearing two X chromosomes: all spare lines and pale skin." Genderswap, and some very nice Teyla characterization in this little ficlet.

SGA, some more genderswap fic, "Oddly the first leaping wrongness was who in the hell used their property allowance to bring nail polish to another galaxy?"

SGA, Complimentary, part 1/? Because what sGA fandom needs is more hookerfic. "The view is gorgeous and the city is all twinkling desert from his enormous windows, and Rodney's drunk enough to wax poetic about it--At least until the complimentary hooker shows up. 'Oh, hey,' Rodney says, 'I didn't know I got one of these, too.' "

SGA, Perimeter, part 5 of Alpha Centauri, first four parts linked at the beginning of the post. Rodney/John/Ronon series. "Rodney snorted and slammed his glass of tea down on the table. 'I’m sorry, my mistake, that was very imprecise of me. Maybe he wants to eat with one of his many girlfriends.' "

SGA, Thirst "How many minutes would a mouthful of lukewarm water add to Sheppard's lifespan? What would it feel like?"

SGA, Edges "In one way or another Rodney has always known he was going to lose John." Quietly, devastatingly effective and real, without an ounce of melodrama to spare.

SGA, Separate Sand from Salt "Screw it, Kate thought. She could only stand being professional for so long, when one of her friends was hurting like this. She laced her hand though Laura's and quickly squeezed."

SGA/Macdonald Hall, Snapshot: Reverse Polarities "The best part of this plan is," Bruno said, "if it doesn't work, and the girls break through the barriers we're putting up so that McKay can make his romantic approach to Sheppard's room--they'll just cannabalize him and we're still free!" Boots wanted to cry, but didn't, and it was very hard. "I'm going to go take a shower now." Bruno waved him off. "Don't take too long--I'm cultivating aphrodesiac plants in there."

SGA/Sports Night, Thospar "Fools." Teyla shook her head as she rose to help the doctor up. "It is Thospar's special day."

Young Wizards series by Diane Duane, Spring Cleaning Tom and Carl and a little snippet of happy domesticity. Cute!

Young Wizards, Poetry and Practice and Better When She Glows, Futurefic Nita/Kita snippets.

Young Wizards, why you so young, Nita's parents, spoilers for A Wizard Alone.

Supernatural vid to the Linkin Park song "Faint."

[livejournal.com profile] undermistletoe is a Smallville and Stargate: Atlantis holiday fanfic challenge.

Two Newsweek articles about the new Narnia movie.

This page of customized super-hero Barbies includes a pretty spiffy-looking Death from Neil Gaiman's Sandman. Also, [livejournal.com profile] endlesscostumes is a community dedicated to costumes of the Endless.

An interview with David Hewlett here. Includes the most embarassing moment of his career.

The website for the game in the latest Terry Pratchett book, Thud. Definitely worth looking at, even if only for the historical perpective on the game, written by Terry Pratchett.

The film short D.E.B.S., that was later turned into a full-length movie, is available online here. Lesbian schoolgirls with guns! I think is stands up better as a film short, actually. (And incidentally, the same site has the short Interview with my Next Girlfriend, with Anne-Marie Macdonald and Cara Pifko from This is Wonderland, among others.

Somewhat late, but a couple of very cool anecdotes, on Rosa Parks and Sojourner Truth.

It's probably old news by now that George Takei (Mr. Sulu on Star Trek) has come out. So has WNBA MVP Sheryl Swoope. And also, James Howe, author of Bunnicula, among other things.

The Altered Art Gallery Cool bits of, well, stuff, turned into art.

Salem Press is giving away "Reference is Cool" buttons.

Fanfic:

SGA, Prime (Alpha Centauri 4) "Two weeks in bed was a pretty bad deal when you spent most of it celibate and partially chitinous." John/Rodney/Ronon

SGA, untitled fic snippets by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock. Including a high school AU, and Rodnet undercover as a kindergarten teacher. Hee!

SGA, Sand and Sea John. Rodney. A beach, and some quiet domesticity.

SGA, He's Having His Baby! "There are times when John is reminded painfully of the fact that Carson's a research physician and not a general practitioner, because any normal doctor wouldn't be saying, 'I'm sorry--I've just got to do an anal exam--I have no idea how this is scientifically possible.'

SGA, Butterscotch "Sheppard's looking at him like he's butterscotch." Ronon/Sheppard.

Chicago Tonight's Entertainment Velma/Roxie. "You've been a wonderful audience."

Discworld, Cross'd. "Oh, we have a much more romantic plan than that," Julie assured her. She leaned closer to Magrat and confided in an excited whisper, "We're going to kill ourselves! Then everyone will be sorry! Isn't that the most romantic thing you ever heard of? Couldn't you just die?"

Due South, Knowing. "Of all of the things I need in my life, casual sexual encounters facilitated by my roommate-cum-partner are not high on the list."

SGA/Hitchiker's Guide fusion-crossover-thingie Infinity Plus One John Shepplebrox from Betelgeuse Five.

Men With Brooms, Throwing Off Glass. "These weren't the best guys in the world, or the brightest, but they were her guys."

Johnny Maxwell, Bags of Time. "A trolley containing time in plastic shopping bags seems a bit mundane. But it works."

Shawshank Remption slash, which makes me want to rewatch the movie. I haven't seen it since the first time, about ten years ago. Andy/Red, post-movie, lovely and warm and full of saltwater and sun.

Strangers in Paradise drabbles, including a Sandman crossover.

Young Wizards, The Right Place Tom/Carl. Post-High Wizardry. (I so wish I still had that "Because the lone power could totally kick Voldemort's ass" icon...) And there's a Young wizards fic community, [livejournal.com profile] myriadwords.

**

Not Necessarily Fanfic:

The Tiger Strikes Again, a newspaper article about Bill Waterson and Calvin and Hobbes.

CNL has SG-1 DVDs on sale for under $35 for most seasons.

Meg Cabot's blog is every bit as fun as her books. I especially like the Oct. 5 entry (scroll down to see it) about the boyfriend store.

Firefly ref in one of the webcomics I read. And some awesome Serenity meta from [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza.

Universal Pictures Picks Up Joss Whedon's Goner "According to Variety, Universal Pictures has paid seven figures for "Goner," a fantasy thriller spec script Joss Whedon wrote and will direct." Also, "[Whedon] acknowledged he has been toying with a TV project that would continue the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, focusing on Spike, the punk-haired vampire played by James Marsters." Eee! There needs to be a Joss show on the air, there just does.

Pics from the newest issue of the official Stargate magazine.

[livejournal.com profile] queenzulu is taking drabble requests. [livejournal.com profile] mockingspike wants a Muppets/Coupling crossover... The twisty working so fhis brain never cease to amaze me.

[livejournal.com profile] naked_bandit's son says the best stuff. But we knew that already.

I have icon angst. I'm trying to decide if I should rotate out either my SGA icon or my TiW icon to use my Buffy Halloween one again. (It has Giles! In a sombrero! Fiesta Giles!)
