Hmm, time to clear out my links file and start anew with the *cough* nine windows of open tabs.

Addams Family/Angel, Her Beauty and Her Terror Wednesday/Harmony. Amanda Buckman moved to California, changed her name, and became a vampire. Wednesday can't help but approve. "It has in fact been a decade since Wednesday had Amanda Buckman tied to a stake and doused with kerosene. She remembers the fear in her eyes as she struck the match. Wednesday may not have changed - she is older and her chest finally filled out, a lot - but Amanda, she can see, is truly no more. The soul is gone, and in its place something darker, older. It's quite disturbing to think of that girl, that pretty, blonde girl as she knew her that Summer, becoming a creature of the night. Wednesday, naturally, approves."

DS, On Strike "Frannie is sick of guys. The way they smell, the way they don't listen, the way they either hit on you like you're a piece of meat or ignore you like you're a nun. They don't notice when you dress up for them, they never know when you need a compliment, they don't respect you, see who you really are, all your potential that's just bursting out all over. Men. They're pathetic. Frannie's on strike. No more men." Frannie/Meg Thatcher.

HCL, untitled fic Postfilm, and Joe's still messing around with Billy's things. She sits down on one of the flat rocks. Feels warm. “Who are you?” “Call me Joe. We’re gonna go a long way, you and me,” he says with a grin.


HP, Are You There, God? It's Me, Draco Harry and Draco are straight Aurors. Then they're gay teachers. It makes sense in context."Of course, they hadn't actually been holding hands. A melting hex cast by one of the spies had bound their wrists together by the skin, and neither of them had had time between briefings and debriefings to get to a Healer to get it fixed. Wizard press had never been particularly hampered by the burdens of proof and truth, however, and so the Evening Prophet headlines had screamed GAY AURORS IN LOVE and much had been made of the epic tale of Harry's and Draco's supposedly-former schoolboy enmity which had, in a long-standing tradition embraced by romance novel readers and writers everywhere, gradually morphed into a deep, passionate, frequently sweaty love." Post-OOTP, no spoilers for DH.

HP, End of the Line Hell was, Snape decided, a crowded railway platform. DH spoilers!

HL/Angel, Antiquaires, "In which there are quips, a book, a sword, an immortal who cannot die, an erstwhile rogue demon hunter, and an unknown quantity of scotch." Methos/Wesley.

Shrek, Snow White and the Treasures of Beauty Sleeping Beauty/Snow White. "It was strange having breakfast without the dwarves arrayed around her table, making as much noise as seven - now six - little men wanting to sound bigger than they were could. It was quiet here, with nothing but birdsong and a slight purring snore to emphasize the lack of song and noisy eating. She moved Beauty's head slightly to get to the toast, feeling her heart move in quite a new kind of tenderness."

SGA/Torchwood, A Ring in the Black Sea She did not pair with people of her own tribe, because that would cause conflict among them. She did not pair with her team for the same reason, although Rodney and Ronon--but not John, not for women, at least--were passionate men and would, she was sure, be willing. And she did not have time to seek a companion among the others on Atlantis. She still did not understand their exhausting sexual taboos. "Come," Teyla said. "Let us find a bed." Het and slash and sheer awesomeness!

SPN, And this is Home "The east block is the nicest. Dean hasn’t seen the cells in the other wings, but by his estimation they’ll either have crappy views or miss the sunlight entirely. His cell has a good view of the church and if you really crane your neck, when the sun rises, you can see the light glinting off the stained-glass windows; it’s like a ripple of ruby and emerald and sapphire. Dean prefers to stare out the window at that first thing rather than the blacktop wasteland of the exercise yard, listening to the creak of the link-chain fence that surrounds it." Gen.

Torchwood, The Supply of Time "Listen to me," Jack breathes in his ear. "You're not meant to be bachelor Uncle Ianto forever, alone with his young, secret lover until he dies. You're not meant to fall to a Weevil, or to come back to life again and again because I can't stand for anything else. Get out, Ianto, while we've had a good run that hasn't been spoiled by your stubborn refusal to see that things are finished, that you're done here."

Transformers/SPN More than Meets the Eye, Wincest. "The yellow robot was reaching down for them, and all of a sudden the Impala backed up a few paces, smacked her hood down and her doors shut, and then she was unfolding rapidly and standing up and up and up, gleaming black and silver, and she reached out and grabbed the yellow robot's hand before he could touch them. 'They're mine,' she said firmly." Now with fanart!

Transformers/SPN Look What My Baby Can Do "He’s stuck between instantaneous glee and horror, because Dean’s standing right next to the impala robot, and aren’t all giant car robots evil?" Gen.

...to your semi-regular dose of fanfic links.

CSI, Fibonacci A cracktastic premise (hooker!fic), made into real. Greg/Nick. "I know how this works," Greg had said. "You don't have to wine and dine me. Cops get freebies." And it was kind of hilarious in retrospect the way Nick's eyes had widened in unexaggerated horror, how he'd said, mortified, "I meant coffee! Real coffee!" and how Greg had been so shocked stupid all he could say was "Oh."

Kormanverse, I Want to Go Home, Five Things That Hang On the Wall Of Rudy Miller's Home Office 1. A green pennant, with the following text, slightly faded, printed in white: UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO TRIVIAL PURSUIT CHAMPION. One day, eight weeks since the last time Mike and Rudy had a moment alone together. Sequel to A Very Long Summer and AVLS Epilogue: II. MAde of awesome.

SGA, A Slightly Different Quality of Light John sees, for a single split second, every single atom in Atlantis, every piece of information and stream of data, every problem and interface and the answer to every single mystery--the full weight of a city and its people and its 10,000 year old history and then he sees nothing at all because it's being pulled out of him, like a black hole draining a star.

SGA, Tab A Slot B "The men spend the entire meeting trying not to stare at each other's tits and failing miserably."

SGA, Two-Stepping "I didn’t know what had happened then, really." Katie’s still talking to her knees. "But I thought – some of what he said didn’t sound like Rodney, so..." Laura Cadman/Katie Brown

SGA/X-Men, With Wings So Bright They Burn "He blinked, and looked again. Where every other expedition member had their mutant abilities listed, there was a short, black line in McKay's file. McKay was human. Entirely human, and maybe John had sensed that somehow, maybe that was the reason for his spontaneous dislike, despite McKay being actually kind of cool underneath his asshole exterior."

Torchwood, Employee Benefits "He wants to see how much I want this job, I think for a minute, and then we’re back and working and it doesn’t matter, because I’m thinking; working; my brain’s ticking like I’m high on something other than Neapolitan pizza and coffee and the results are starting to make sense, I can see a pattern emerging and I’ve got a grin the size of the Bristol channel because this is just fucking brilliant." Jack/Owen

Supernatural, Under Hill "Can't we just kill a bunch of elves without having to talk about our feelings?" Dean said. "We don't know anything, okay? Maybe we hate each other's guts. Maybe we're just partners, like cops or something."

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

Behold, vid recs!

Dr Who, Clocks Some really good timing and clip choice here.

Dr Who, Exile No going home. Nicely bittersweet, and probably spoilery.

DS, Out Here makes me want to watch DS again and reminds me how much I like Benton Fraser.

DS, Icebound Stream is a brilliant combination of Fraser, Victoria, and polar bears. If you haven't seen it already, you should download it right now.

DS, Pavlov's Bell Very well-done Fraser/RayK vid.

DS, Needful is another fantastic Fraser character vid. The song choice is dead-on, and it brings the whole series together wonderfully.

Firefly, Hallelujah It may just be because I saw it first, but this is my all-time favourite vid to this much-vidded song. A love story, about Mal and his ship, and all from one episode.

Sports Night, Goodnight Hollywood Boulevard would be spiffy-keen just because it's a good SN vid, but with the emotional impact figured in, ouch. (But that's a good ouch.)

Supernatural, The Way We Get By, just plain fun.

SGA, Welcome Home I didn't think I liked all-instrumental vids much, but this is a incredibly well done combination of clips and timing. The song choice struck me as odd for about twenty seconds before I realized it was perfect.

SGA, Last Resort is a good Rodney vid.

SGA, Stress is another good Rodney vid, and is much fun.

SGA, Creep takes a song I thought really didn't fit with the clips and convinces me otherwise. Irony lives!

SGA, Mr Jones & Me is a commentary on Atlantis and dating. Hee!

SGA, When I Grow Up, Teyla gets to be kick-ass, which is always good.

Seeing as I'm getting ever-shorter here with my editorial-ish comments, I think I'd better stop for the night and leave the fic links for later. Enjoy!
