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.

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."

All I can say about this is, dammit.

Waiting to hear back on a seven-week temp contract where they actually want a library tech. Oooh... something more involved than photocopying! But they want someone with oil and gas industry experience. Errrrgh.

I think I want to go to Netspeed this year. Do not know if I can afford it. Hmmm. Depends if and where I'm working--it's less for TAL member libraries.

But [livejournal.com profile] chaleur23, you must see this! Bertie Wooster Takes a Stand.

Need to catch up on fannishness going on. (Need to finish one of the four or five This is Wonderland fic I've started in the past month. Heh.) Need to fiddle with icons since I'm vaguely bored of my current ones. Cannot justify getting paid account JUST for extra icons right now. Damn my randomly occuring sensible streak.

I was considering just saying to hell with it and posting the DS/HCL xover that's ben mostly done for several years now. I've filled in the missing bits lately. But it still feels vaguely uneven and I'm not entirely happy with it. (Even though I found out that Aukestrel already did Joe/Fraser, I, er, still like my version better. Because it's not quite as nice.)

[livejournal.com profile] afrai is randomly writing a Smallville/Discworld crossover thing. It looks something like this. Annnd it seems to be friends-locked. Oops. So just go and read her other fanfic. because, hey, very cool Good Omens and Discworld slash.

HCL/TS? I was much amused by this Canadian shack crossover. But then again, I would be. And if you haven't seen the original Canadian Shack challenge... 101 stories by thirty writers in sixty-two fandoms. (One of which is Jeeves and Wooster, incidentally.) Go read.

While I'm linking, the Little Black Dress challenge aka Kryecek in crossover land, and many others including the MAry Sue challenge live on Te's challenge page here. (Because everyone has to read Tangerine Fairchild's License to Kill. "Hogwarts, check, makeover, check. Oh *crap*-- I'm late for catching the serial killer.")

Speaking of which, this is fandom.
