out_there: Mycroft Holmes (SH: Prim Mycroft)
This was so wonderful. I loved the magical realism of it, the idea that Mycroft quite literally sees people haunted by their own demons. He sees the world in a way that no one else does but has learned how to effectively hide and smother his own reactions to what he sees. It was a really imaginative and interesting idea.

It isn't deduction for Mycroft; it's a living nightmare that leads to self-imposed isolation. When Sherlock "dies," Mycroft finds himself reaching out for a golden slice of happiness, just one person to call his own in a landscape of horrors.

In hindsight, the numbering should have gone the other way -- 1 the latest, 287 the oldest -- since that's how AO3 lists/counts them and would have made it easier.

I'm Somebody's Fetish - 311 words of a gen Sports Night drabble. Man, that's hardly a story. (Clearly, I pad my writing stats a little. Heh.) Okay, things I like:

1) While I have lost the link to the original comic strip this was about, I still like the general idea -- that Dan is cool enough to reference things that Casey doesn't get, but Dan will still find a way to include Casey on the joke.

2) I like the rhythm of the very first paragraph, the humour and ... Casey-ness of it:
[Casey] dressed casually. He dressed neatly. He wore neat, casual clothes and he was presentable.

3) I liked that I could mention Natalie and Dana and Jeremy (and that Casey is uncool, but so is Jeremy so there is some nerdy solidarity there).

[personal profile] jenna_thorn - 99
Days Like Years - 1625 words of Sam/Josh, West Wing.

1) This is a little experimental: first person POV, a very limited description, a lack of names at the start which makes it harder to follow, and the slightly unreal feeling of exhaustion. Parts of it work and parts of it are clumsy, but I really like that I tried something different. Even if it doesn't work together as a story as well as it could do, I'm proud of myself for trying.

And by halfway through, the story does pick up momentum, so I like that. (And, you know, this was written in 2005. So maybe it's nice to see how my writing has improved since then.)

2) I like this bit of description:
"Oh," I say, taking a good look at Sam. His clothes are rumpled and creased; his hair's unruly and sticking out over the edge of his collar; his very blue eyes are also bloodshot. He looks about half as tired as I feel. "It's been a long day."

3) I like the simplicity of this gesture:
Sam doesn't smile. He lays a hand on my forearm, running his thumb over the rolled-up sleeve of my shirt.

[personal profile] misbegotten - 107
In Shades of Indigo and Violet - SGA, John/Rodney, Wing porn.

1) This is the only wingporn fic I've ever written, but I still think it's hot. Go me. I also like that it's sex that follows the idea of "doing what feels good to get off", a little messy and not quite perfect, but hot.

2) "You're surprisingly mean for an overgrown butterfly." Hee!

3) Overall, I find this story very funny. There's Zelenka being snarky ("offend gravity and common sense at the same time"), there's references to pranks-as-retaliation, there's lots of snark between John and Rodney. I really like that sense of humour.

[personal profile] anarfea - 201

The Ill-Advised Backpack - Prison Break AU, Michael/Alex

1) Written for Celli's 2009 taxfic challenge, and therefore a wonderful excuse to talk about the exciting ideas of depreciation as a financial concept vs the real world usage of an asset. (Yes, I am an accountant. And a little bit of a nerd.)

2) I love the pacing of this, the short sharp sections leading to more. The way it's not strictly chronological but it fits together by the end, and how half of the focus is on how a story is told and remembered. It's not just about what happens, it's how you interpret that and assign meaning.

3) As much as I love a happy ending, and the sheer temptation that a super smart Michael would be to teacher-Alex, I also love Alex and Felicia's friendship. I love that she calls him out but also respects his boundaries (I love the "Don't" moment, where Alex doesn't need to actually explain that it's a sore spot). I love the shared history and shared sense of humour, too.

Halfway through the junior pile, he gets a call from Felicia, saying, "Of the many, many themes present in Moby Dick, bestiality is not one of them."

It surprises a laugh out of Alex. "A man's love for his whale? There's got to be a market for that somewhere."

(It was nice to end this meme with a story I'm really, really fond of.)

But, since this meme is going around and it looks like fun:

Things I have watched recently and enjoyed:

Sex Education (Netflix)

A well written teen comedy/drama is a thing of joy and this was great. Teens having sex way younger than I did (but there were kids at school hooking up / that one pregnant girl, so it's certainly possible) and trying to figure out sex and relationships and all that teen angst at the same time.

It's funny and honest to the characters, and the teen actors are all great. (And I've never been happier not to be a teenage boy.)

Plus, there's Gillian Anderson!

A Very British Scandal

To be honest, I watched this because I read an interview with Hugh Grant talking about how fun it was to play villains and complicated characters now that he's older (and doesn't fall into the rom-com hero mould any more). It was actually really enjoyable.

Not the accent, which is the terribly posh accent that I could never imagine taking seriously in bed, but the story as a whole. They did a great job of making both Hugh Grant's character and Ben Wishaw's characters intriguing and dislikeable. It's a story of exes, blackmail and attempted murder, and both characters are flawed in their own ways.

It had moments of genuine humour and was a really interesting watch (although I will say that the making-out scene twenty minutes in was not so much titillating as really, really uncomfortable because that amount of patronising / paternalism makes my skin crawl when seen onscreen.1)

1 Weirdly enough, while I can read BDSM fics and find them hot, there's clearly a big line inside my head that says 'this behaviour is a red warning light in reality'. Mind you, that was the kind of story where I watch and realise that if I was either of the characters, I wouldn't have got involved in that relationship in the first place -- this is probably why I'm single. Single, yes, but my life is free from big romantic drama. I'll take single and calm over fraught and frantic, thanks.
out_there: Mycroft Holmes (SH: Prim Mycroft)
I missed more joy day, so instead I'm going to rec two stories that have given me joy this week.

The first is a Erik/Charles XMFC AU, Politico, because sometimes what I really want is a gay mutant version of West Wing, complete with party loyalties and complicated situations that don't have easy answers (no matter how strongly you believe in the principles, the real world is never so easy or clean) and plenty of snark! It's a really satisfying story:

Second is a Mycroft/Lestrade story. Full disclosure -- I did help beta this -- but it's an interesting Groundhog Day /time loop type story that I really enjoyed reading and I think you guys will too.

This fic is my response to the question,"What would Mycroft Holmes do to rescue Greg Lestrade from the very determined arms of Death?"

The answer's obvious, isn't it? He'd do anything. Anything at all.

Hence, this is a time-loop fic in which Mycroft is jet-lagged, Eurus is creepy, Greg is quite wonderful until he dies (repeatedly, but also temporarily), Anthea is confused but supportive, the Prime Minister is kind, Sherlock and John are helpful (sort of), it rains an awful lot, Mycroft’s coat is very clean, and tomorrow is a new day.

Until it isn’t.

These things have brought my fannish joy in the last few weeks.

Community is a show that I love. I love all of the characters and the ridiculousness. I love the fun they have with TV genres while at the same time sidestepping stereotypes and making me laugh. But in a fic, I need some ridiculousness and a whole lot of heart, and this story delivers. It's delightful, a five things fic of naps and friendships.

I love the Mummy. I love Indiana Jones. I don't know why I've never before considered how absolutely fantastic a crossover between the two would be. This fic takes two characters that I love and shows how well they'd get along (or, y'know, how terribly annoyed Indy would be at Rick, even as they manage to save each other and occasionally steal artifacts).

This story has great pacing and wonderful build to the payoff, and is so much fun. Read it.

"Is it a sex thing?" Rick asked, when Indy pulled out his whip.

(Or: five times Indy and Rick (sort of) kisseed.)


This last one I've held on to for a while, thinking that I'd write up a nice long rec like it deserves, but since I keep not getting there, we'll go with a quick rec instead.

Right from the start, I love this Greg and how down-to-earth he feels, even if he's a bit lost in routine and his job. Right from the start, we have Mycroft as the interferring, orchestrating big brother, posh and powerful but also inherently practical and showing his appreciation in coffee and a bacon sandwich. (For the record, I can totally understand why you'd fall in love with someone who gave coffee and bacon sandwiches.)

I love the slow growth of their relationship. I love that this is very much Greg's story, because anyone who's gone through the trouble of househunting and then found that one place that they adore, that feels like *home* understands how marvellous that feels. (One of the best parts of being an adult, I have to say.) I like the other characters, especially Sally Donovan who feels like such a comrade in arms to Greg -- not someone he'd necessarily befriend by choice, but someone he's worked with long enough to feel some kinship there. I like John and Sherlock and Anthea, and the warmth of memories and worldbuilding in this story.

It really is quite lovely.

“So, Christmas Day?”

“You're truly under no obligation," Mycroft says smoothly. "I'd only wish my family upon my enemies.”

Greg remembers Mycroft's description of the day. But he also knows that as much as Mycroft rolls his eyes or scowls at Sherlock, he loves his little brother dearly. For all the condescension and the hyperbole, he suspects Mycroft loves his parents too. “I'd be happy to come.”

“You're curious,” Mycroft surmises.

“You're the one dating a copper. Curious and suspicious come with the territory.”

When they hit a snafu, when a mission goes bad, Coulson calls him a few days later. Well, not him. He doesn't call Clint. ‘Jedidiah’ calls ‘Will’ and pays for someone to talk dirty to him.

It's a weird routine but Clint isn't judging. (Clint fell off his own kitchen counter trying to clear cans out of his top cupboards; he definitely couldn't balance on the moral high ground.)

out_there: Phil Coulson! (Avengers: Coulson)
This story is the start of a delightful AU series (which is 100K in total, but written as 15 nicely sized stand-alone stories) where Clint is an Avenger and Phil is the principal of a high school. Of course, he's still Phil Coulson, so he's far more competent than anyone would expect at first glance and he's willing to defend his students with the impromptu use of a fire extinguisher if needed. He also has a cat called Mittens II (because Mittens I is the name of his taser).

The first story is short and delightful, but I really like this Clint and Phil. There's a lovely humour and maturity to them. It's great to see them finding a way to fit into each other's lives when they're both busy with demanding jobs, and it's a really delightful little series.

Clint has never been a fan of museums, especially not museums where the exhibits are trying to kill him. But he will admit, it's not a bad place to meet people.


This is a modern non-powered AU, Charles/Erik, but I found the approach to Charles and the loss of using his legs very refreshing. Clearly, someone has done a good deal of research because while I intellectually know some of this stuff, it's great to see it used so naturally in a story. To give a huge insight into the difficulties of being in a wheelchair (back pain, which I wouldn't have thought of; callouses on his hands; navigating a wheelchair in the snow; managing bathroom trips) and the differences in Charles' new normal. It worked for me.

Plus, it had one of my favourite things ever. That thing where someone's issues and history dovetail neatly into someone else's. That's not always a positive thing, sometimes it's downright unhealthy (like, say, Harlequinn/Joker -- issues dovetailing in a bad way), but when you can see how someone's past shapes their present choices, how they've developed their value system, why certain things are important to them and other things terrify them, oh, I love that done well. Show me why these two people in particular work well together, show me how they fit together and support each other and why that spark between them could grow into so much more, and I'm a very happy reader.

Sometimes, I love vids that give me a clear narrative about a character or a relationship; sometimes, I love vids that do an incredible job of combining visuals to lyrics and beat. This is definitely the second type of vid, the kind of vid that could be used as a fantastic promo for the show itself.

Less gory than a lot of Hannibal vids can be, but such a wonderful link to the beat, right from the footsteps at the start to the smashing glass and mirrors. The editing starts so strongly and works really well.
