Ha. Down to one window of tabs, mostly unread or uncommented fic. I've let stuff accumulate, so it's even more of a mixed bunch than usual.

SGA, Public Law My girlfriend's kinda insane, because you'd have to be to concieve of writing a fic about SGA and Canadian politics. That being said, in my not-so-unbiased opinion, she did so beautifully. "You have the president's approval." "I know what I have!" Elizabeth all but shouted. "And until Canada becomes a part of the United States of America, it will always be an independent country. This isn't military, John, this is Canadian politics."

SGA, #435, The Atlantis Local Stitch'n'Bitch Chapter Knitting. Snark. Cadman, Miko, and all the rest of the minor female characters. Rodney. Must be read to be believed. And there's fanart, too!

SGA, Perpetual A small and beautiful little thing about ferris wheels.

SGA, Piecemeal A different take on the "search and seizure" challenege, with a wonderful amount of character and plot and pure, visceral reaction in a short and eloquent (painful) space. Rodney hurts. Cadman helps. (Don't worry, it's gen.)

SGA, Two Left is a punch in the gut story. Horrifingly plausible, and well worth reading.

SGA, Be Cool Something a bit less tragic than the last few links. "Give it a rest, McKay. If you were so concerned about the scientific necessity of selling pot out of the botany labs, why didn’t you bring that up in the staff meeting?"

SGA, Distillation, set mid-"Lost Boys." "His heart pounds in his chest all the time. He can't sleep. His senses are sharper than ever. He smells Wraith everywhere, even on his own skin. The enzyme, the drug, makes him edgy." Mmh, John/Ronon.

Pratchett! A post from [livejournal.com profile] saffic to Monstrous Regiment fanart.

Diana Wynne Jones Fic! Specifically, Eight Days of Luke fic. I am thrilled to find this! David thinks Luke's only out to get him in the latest round of practical jokes...

Bruno & Boots, Love is a Movement "The pith helmet and unit standard (i.e., Bruno's hockey stick with a construction paper sign affixed that reads "REVOLUTION NOW QUESTIONS AFTER LUNCH") is a new low even for Bruno."

More book slash, Nancy Drew. The Clue of the Scribbled Note "I would never dream of upsetting George on purpose, only it's hard to tell what will upset her sometimes because her ideas are so queer."

Due South, Gun, with Occasional Kangaroo: A Love Story There is a gun. Twins. A Kangaroo. And Frannie with a harlequin about Mounties. All the fun absurdity of the series, plus, slash!

Harry Potter, The Last Horcrux Incredibly creepy, with a wonderfully horrible last line.

Harry Potter, Drink Me, more creepiness of the Draco/Ron variety.

Kitchen Confidental, The Queen of England by [livejournal.com profile] rageprufrock. "At 3 a.m. Wednesday Jack rolls off of the couch, almost causes himself permanent damage, and then creates a whole fucking new seafood dish that has a playful medley of Spanish flavors and the zinging citrus of limes, the verdant flavors of cilantro and the warm, sunny sweetness of roasted sun-dried tomatoes. [...] That night, they serve forty-six orders of lasagna, and it kills a piece of Jack's soul every order up that comes in for it." And yes, it is slash.

Lovely femmeslash, involving planes.

Smallville, Gilgamesh, a conceptually fascinating Smallville WIP, with cultural anthropology and ancient Kryptonian BDSM. Previous parts linked to at the top of the post.

Some X-Files here, All Sorts of Rules, Scully/Fowley. (I'm not looking at [livejournal.com profile] queenzulu, really...)

From the wank going on over at [livejournal.com profile] housefic, I'm glad I unsubbed a while ago, but it can't be all bad since dubious spelling led to these insane little snippets about cannons on House, and about cannnonical relationships.

I can't remember if I've linked to this before or not. Superdickery "An ever growing selection of examples of Superman acting like... well, a dick." Also includes a gallery of Wonderwoman in bondage.

Giant squid in the news! More here, and here. Also, dolphins with guns.

And Danish Air Force Compensates Santa for the death of one of his reindeer.

An excerpt from Anthony Blair, Captain of the School. British politics, the school story!

I think I got this link from [livejournal.com profile] trullsengar, The Fantasy Novelist's Exam. If you answer yes to any of these questions... um, it's not a good thing. And garnered from said page, an interesting site on weights of swords. (This stands out in my mind as the kind of thing [livejournal.com profile] jestyna would find interesting.

Screw Sunscreen is an exquisite and funny and perfect piece on the pleasures of drinking tea.

I had some Firefly and Serenity related links, but I think they deserve their own post. More later.

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.

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.
