(Is it just me after that subject line who has the urge to burst into "Going Through the Motions?" Don't worry, I won't, due to incredible tone-deafness and the risk of incurring the wrath of [livejournal.com profile] mockingspike and his anal piano--kidding, kidding!)

This is not touching the two windows of open tabs I have yet to read... that's what I get for spending last night doing productive things like laundry and ironing. While watching Tuesday night TV, of course. (Bones-House-Sentinel, for the curious.) Consequently, this may not be new to anyone reading SGA fic. And hopefully won't keep poor, sick [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu up too late, since I know she's read some of these already. Heh.


[livejournal.com profile] sga_newsletter is an awesome resource and I wish I'd found it sooner!

No Refunds or Exchanges Rodney sends away for a mail-order bride. You can guess where this is going. Truly cracktastic.

The same goes for He's Having Her Baby!, which also made me outright giggle.

Euler's Jewel, in which John proves his math geek cred, and Rodney proposes.

My Fair Linguist AU, John picks up Rodney and Zalenka. Literally. In a van. From the streets of Prague.

We Invented the Internet: Time Wasters Because what else do you think a bunch of science geeks would get up to? Includes random pictures found on the Random Atlantis Image Generator. Hee.

No, Really is OT4 fic!

Great Expectations, a fun take on the ever-prevalent in SGA "aliens made them do it" plot device.

Land Shark has bickering Rodney and Zelenka, John, and a puddlejumper. Again, hee.

SG-1/Firefly, Flux. Simon and Daniel, oddly fitting.


[livejournal.com profile] bravecows's impressions of yaoi are all very true and relevant, and had me giggling at "pantlessness!" for about three days straight.

[livejournal.com profile] zoi_no_miko has scans of a takarazuka performance of Phantom of the Opera. (And I hope she found the vague street address she was looking for when she left us tonight!)


Off on a tangent, I think I've figured out why one of my TiW fic is stuck. The second half needs to go from Nancy's point of view to Alice's. (Does anyone--of the like, five people watching TiW--remember the names of Alice's sisters?) Though it still may ultimately need to wait until the next season airs so I can see what they do with cop-boy Ian in canon. Sigh.

Trying to decide whether or not to swap my "my fandom can't spell" icon out for another SGA one. Decisions, decisions.

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!

I have a large amount of tabs open. (dumps armload of links into lj) Wheee!

Here's an interesting post about Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell.

[livejournal.com profile] brighidestone has been writing fic snippets: Firefly, SG-1 and American Gods, Farscape and Buffy, and a Wrinkle in Time universe.

Speaking of Firefly, here's a cool Simon vid. And Laura Shapiro's remastered a bunch of her vids! (Including the X-Files vid "Rook." And the Scully vid "More than Human" is incredible. And Due South and Buffy, too! You will need to email her for a password, but she's very obliging.

I just finished reading this Due South Hockey AU last night, and it is fantastic! She's reworked the universe beautifully, and almost all of the important recurring characters from the series show up in very cool ways. And there's all these cool footnotes, and quoting from Roch Carrier's The Hockey Sweater. (And oh dear lord, the bit about Victoria is truly gut-wrenching.) Ray is simultaneously a slut and a closet case, which works surprisingly well. And Fraser's relationship with Mark Smithbauer is um, very interesting. And Dief, oh Dief.

The original Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy game is up on the BBC's website in a new, graphic-y version! It still plays like a text-based game, though. I foresee myself wasting many hours on it.

It's old news by now, but the cover art for the new Harry Potter book has been released. Also, J.K. Rowling has posted The Ballad of Nearly Headless Nick to her website.

Another good way to spend many hours: the New York Public Library's just opened their digital gallery. Very cool stuff, like
The Floating World: Japanese Color Woodcuts by Kitagawa Utamaro
, a 'friendship book' from the circle of Percy Byssche Shelley, Medieval and Renaissance Illuminated Manuscripts from Western Europe, Asia and the Pacific Rim in Early Prints and Photographs, and Turn of the Century Posters.

Some older links kicking around my desktop: about the word "fag", a cool HP snippet about Sybill Trelawney, and a study on how much a SF/F writer makes.

Things I need to do this weekend, in no particular order: Finish reading [livejournal.com profile] guyindkny's book. Finish book for review (it's Canadian historical fiction this time, and, er, doesn't stand up well to the Jane Yolen book I just finished). Catch up reading GN-LIB (graphic novels for libraries) mailing list posts, and make appropriate revisions to graphic novels for libraries workshop. Get a large chunk of outlining and referencing done for online YA resources workshop (registration permitting, both of these are running at the beginning of April). Finish cover letter for job posting I desperately, desperately want. Do laundry. Iron large pile of clothes. Brush the cats. Go to friend's birthday party tonight, roads permitting. Go over to parents' tomorrow so my father will stop nagging me about doing my income tax.

In the next ten minutes goals: Pry [livejournal.com profile] troutkitty away from Zuma game. Shower. Find food.
