A random assortment of everything except the SGA, of which there is enough for its own post later. Tangentially, I read a BSG/Dead Like Me crossover a little while ago. Does anyone else remember seeing it, and have the slightest clue where I could find it?

Bruno & Boots, Hot Commodity "So let's try this again," she said, pointing to the flow chart she and Diane had specially made for the occasion. "Boots," she tapped her makeshift pointer (which Bruno thought might have once been the bone of an unfortunate previous student) against the stick figure with a blond squiggle on top of its head, "is captain of the hockey team, co-captain of the football team and captain of the swimming team," she tapped the varying sports items drawn next to the plus sign by "Boots."

BSG/GA, The Space Between "Lying in bed her fingers find their way under the cheap fabric of the clothes she's turned into nightwear, and as hard as she tries to think about Derek, she thinks about President Roslin instead."

BTVS/AtS, Les Cousins Dangereux Connor/Dawn "Connor Summers's real memories start coming back that summer.

DS, Ten Things To Get Used To "I think that maybe the biggest shock of moving north was--not the snow, not the cold, not the dark, not the isolation, not the stupendous beauty of the landscape and the eerie feeling that you're living in the middle of the Chicago Zoo because yeah, those are bears and that's a moose and those are wolves and that's a giant fucking bird, whatever it's called. It wasn't even the fact that it gets freakin' hot here in the summertime and turns into a whole different place. No, I think the biggest shock was realizing that Benton Fraser is not like other Canadians."

DS, Aurora "Sprawled out in the bed of Fraser's truck, Ray closed his eyes and for just a moment, it was like he was eighteen all over again, lying back on the hood of the Goat and watching the stars overhead, thinking about what the future held for him. "

GA, The Plan "The thing about it, though, was that it was one of Meredith's plans. Which meant it had to have a downside. And the downside of this one was that, no matter how gorgeous he was, after a month or two of sleeping with Derek every night, she had to admit that loving heterosexual sex with a man who happened to be married was starting to get boring. Or maybe terrifying. Maybe both. At once. Because that was how it worked, for Meredith. Maximum drama, maximum trauma, all the time."

Jeeves & Wooster, fanart. There is a flamingo contained within...

Jeeves & Wooster, a story told in postcards and artefacts I cannot describe the coolness of this in mere words. Go look!

Jeeves & Wooster, With Sheep "Between the gardens and the park lies rather a large ornamental lake, and in the middle of the lake is a smallish ornamental island with a few ornamental trees and bushes. On warm summer evenings, it is quite pleasant to row out to the island and bathe from the side that is away from the hall, with a sheep or five as one's only audience. What is a dashed sight less pleasant is to find, after a refreshing splash, that the small boat and all one's clothing has vanished."

Madeleine L'Engle books, Learning Fear, Polly/Emily. Snippet.

Slings & Arrows, there's an art to the laughter (there's a science) "Turned out Oliver was right. It had all started so well; love is an antidote to madness, Oliver said, and then he had held forth on the difference between madness and insanity and good old garden-variety street performer craziness in the backseat of their taxi, while Geoffrey and Ellen kissed on the other side of the seat, oblivious to anything and everything he had to say. Except that later, after, Geoffrey remembers Oliver saying that madness is, at least, attractive, and Hamlet didn't make him crazy but Ellen might have."

April 12, 2006 is D.E.A.R. Day. Yes, that is Drop Everything and Read Day from Beverly Cleary's Ramona books. Not-so-co-incidentally, it's also Beverly Cleary's ninetieth birthday! I am so totally going to try to talk both my schools into doing this!

Now onto the small amount of (very) random fanfic links.

BSC, Can't Stand the Waiting Mary Anne/Dawn. Mary Anne has a crush.

BSG/BSC, The EPIC STORY of the Toaster-Sitters Club chapter one, chapter two (Yes, that IS a Battlestar Galactica/Babysitters' Club crossover...) "Kristy," I said patiently, "no one is going to call."
"Why not?" she demanded. "We've had our club meetings every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from five thirty to six, since the club started. Why wouldn't they call now?"
Stacey and I exchanged a Look. "Um," she said, "because we don't have a phone?"
Which was true. Ever since the Cylons attacked, we'd been without any way to communicate except for in person. But Kristy is nothing if not persistent.

BSG/Muppets, viper (it's too soon to feel yet) "Pepe was a good pilot."

HP, Between the Question and the Answer Ginny/Hermione, explicit. "Hermione's sweet. Oh, so sweet. They don't know the half of it."

Mary Poppins/The Simpsons, Practically Mary Poppins/Sherry Bobbins.

SGA, Gay military themed porn is equal opportunity, you know "And John says, "Okay, so, this is basically not what I expected to see in the ready-room," right before six Marines launch to their feet—hands over their tented fatigue pants while the video file on the laptop keeps playing, sound suddenly obscenely loud in the background." Explicit.

SGA, [livejournal.com profile] sgapodfic: Fanfiction to your ears. Podcasts of SGA fic! Fun!

SGA, Heist manips photo manips, spiffy!

SV au, Arc, 1/?, sequel to Conflicts of Interest and Visiting Hours.

My new computer, it is waiting to be picked up! *happy dance* I'm minorly annoyed because I didn't get any notification from Purolator that it was there, and found out by checking my online order status. Also, the pick-up place is only open M-F, 10am-6pm. But realistically, I still have to spend a day or so sorting out and backing up everything on my current hard drive, and cleaning up my incredibly messy desk, etc.

That being said, I have the usual eclectic mess of recs and links:

Battlestar Galactica/[Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Stargate Atlantis, Sports Night, Alias], Domo Arigato "Look," Izzie said. "We're all really stressed right now. We all handle it different ways. Cristina moved in with Dr. Burke, I'm having sex with Alex, Meredith's having sex with... everyone... [...] Look, if George needs to think he's a robot, I think that's a perfectly valid choice." Izzie smiled at him. (Insanely, cracktastically brilliant!)

Barbie, Doll Parts Femmeslash, yay! "The thing about Barbie is that she's not as dumb as she looks."

SGA, Out of Bounds Fantastically cracktastic figure skating AU. (which [livejournal.com profile] mockingspike should read and tell us what he thinks, because that's the kind of t hing we make him do.)
Part one: 'Get back out there.' – 'No. I'm taking up hockey. It'll *hurt* less.'
Part two: 'So why do we have to skate in the nude again?'
Part three: Naturally, John had brought the boom box but had forgotten to bring any music.
Part four: Rodney wondered if John knew 'Mustang Sally' was a favorite with strippers the world over.
Part five: 'This is hero worship, isn't it?'
Part six: 'Me coach. You student. You keep forgetting that lately.'
Part seven: It was just hockey, not a cardinal sin.
Part eight: I'm sure when we were being chased by sabre-toothed tigers we did all kinds of neat tricks.
Part nine: 'You want to be alone?' Kim-the-unutterably-stupid asked.

SGA, The Illustrated Rodneysaurus I know I've linked to this before, but this one has pictures. Pictures!

SGA fanart, Steampunk Victorian London

Dan Brown, Cover Your Eyes: Gay Porn 'Da Vinci' Adaptation to Be Released Same Day as Ron Howard's 'Da Vinci Code' (reads premise) (dissolves into helpless giggles)

This one's also for [livejournal.com profile] mockingspike: Flashbacky Filky Things

The Calls of Cthulhu (looking at [livejournal.com profile] alessar...)
SOLICITOR: Hello, Mr. Cthulhu?
SOLICITOR: Do you have good car insurance?
CTHULHU: I am an Elder God of the Damned. I don't need that simplistic mode of transportation.
SOLICITOR: Well, I understand that you, as an elderly person, must pay a high premium.

And on a tangentially related note, Living dead take prize as oddest literary title The winner of the Bookseller magazine award for the year's oddest book title is the US volume, People Who Don't Know They're Dead: How They Attach Themselves to Unsuspecting Bystanders - and What to Do About It, by Gary Leon Hill, which is said to have sold 15,000 copies.

To Cuddle a Mockingbird "A new survey for World Book Day [...] found that most readers would far rather read a novel that ends happily ever after. Pride and Prejudice was voted the happiest ending in literature, followed by To Kill a Mockingbird and Jane Eyre. In that spirit, therefore, I have begun rewriting great literature to bring it into line with popular sentiment"

An excerpr from Meg Cabot's new adult book, Queen of Babble.

From library activist Sandy Berman, Classism in the Stacks: Libraries and Poor People, and a very reasonable response, On Libraries and the Homeless.
