I took part in the Awesome Ladies Podfic Anthology II over at [ profile] halfamoon, where there are loads of short podfics I can't wait to check out.

These are the two I recorded, both PG-rated and around the 5 minute mark:

Hypothesis (the you can go home again remix)
Stargate Atlantis ; John/Rodney, Jennifer/Rodney ; PG-13 ; 2500 words
And the thing is, he's busy, they're all busy and so it's horribly easy for months to pass without Rodney even thinking to drop John a line.

A remix of [ profile] krabapple's Hypothesis. Many thanks to [personal profile] secondsilk for the beta and support, and [personal profile] glass_icarus for being an audience to my flailing.

Jeez, internet, what is with you today? *considers becoming a hermit*

Here, have some happy things:

+ [personal profile] crysothemis's Vancouver con report on Joe Flanigan and David Hewlett's panels (separate and joint), which made me laugh so hard. <3 There are also many delightful pictures!

+ [personal profile] fan_eunice has embarked on a project to vid each episode of Who S5. So far there is Walking on Sunshine (5x01) and See Who I Am (5x02), and they are both fantastic.

+ Over at [ profile] kinkelot the bladeplay challenge is still running, and our newest theme is costumes! Go and write stories about dressing up and knives - together or separately as the mood takes you. *g*

+ casting spoilers for SJA )

+ and finally, my guaranteed happy place - kittens!

I am looking at the final episodes of SGA. They are looking at me. I am not sure who will win. I am contemplating just watching Vegas now. I am contemplating just watching the finale now. I am contemplating speeding through all four of them this evening. Oh, show, what am I to do with you? Well, hopefully sit down and really write some fic about it at some point. ... which would sort of require me being caught up on all the canon first. Right then.


They are spreading like a disease around the internet at the moment, and I must ask, what is with the horrible, horrible Eleventh Doctor manips? (Well, that's a question for the ages: what is with horribly-done manipulated photography, at all, ever.) I say this with no bias against particular ships or anything, because sweet lord they are not limited to one ship, more is the pity. Personally I am not the greatest fan of manips in general, but hey, I'm often impressed with how well they're done and in those instances they do me the kindness of not burning my eyes. (Petty complaint is petty.)

Anyway, you know the times really are changing when there's an Eleventh Doctor section on Teaspoon, gosh. 'But wait!' I hear you say. 'How can there be Eleven fic? There can't be good Eleven fic, surely? How would you even write it?' And mostly I would be inclined to agree. But the last question is answered if you are [ profile] paperclipbitch, and you write No Straight And Narrow, and then you win the internet. Thus, rec!

No Straight And Narrow by [ profile] paperclipbitch
Eleven; Donna, Lucy, Sarah Jane, Martha, Jack ; PG ; 5000 words
The Doctor isn’t entirely sure who he is, but he does know who he was.

This wins both for the author's take on what Eleven might be like (to which my response is YES PLZ Moffat are you listening?) and also for his interactions with old acquaintances, which are thoughtful, apt, funny, and often a little heartbreaking.

-- Happy, happy birthday to [ profile] snegurochka_lee for yesterday, [ profile] elvenkitty for today and [ profile] nk_aeode for tomorrow! ♥ ♥ ♥ I hope you all celebrate wonderfully.

-- I forgot to mention before, I'm reccing on [ profile] calufrax all this week, a great community that highlights Whoniverse stories hosted on Teaspooon.

-- I'm working on too many things with not enough time, what else is new, and I do wish I could just sit down and take something right the way through the end as opposed to continually tacking small bits onto about half a dozen projects.

-- Said flitting around probably explains why more SGA fic decided to write itself last night:

The Twilight & The Peace
Stargate: Atlantis ; John/Rodney ; 1100 words ; a snippet of the far future for [ profile] mcsmooch

God, November sucks, huh? *kind of wants to hide under the blankets forever* But in lieu of that, here are some things that are cheering me up!

Two additions to the Muse/Doctor Who vid OTP project:

Glorious [Rose, Martha, Donna] by [ profile] rhoboat

Epic does not even BEGIN. This is entirely perfect and shiver-inducing and wow - oh Rose, oh Martha, oh Donna. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH.

Scattered [Tenth Doctor] by [ profile] di_br, to 'Map of the Problematique'

Oh man, you should have seen me after I watched this through for the first time, I was the living embodiment of flail. Oh, Ten, you and your epic cosmic angst will be sorely missed.

And also Shine by [ profile] humansrsuperior, which is just SO HAPPY after the angst of the previous two.


Pushing Daisies vids!

Angel With An Attitude [Chuck] and Modern Nature [Ned/Chuck] by [ profile] charmax, and Open Your Eyes [Ned/Chuck] by [ profile] di_br all capture the joy of the show so well. And so pretty! ♥


Really goofy and amazing SGA vids!

2 atoms in a molecule [John/Rodney] by [ profile] zoetrope - this is so neat, with animation and arty bits and so on! There's even a singalong section.

Grace Kelly and I Won't Say I'm In Love [John/Rodney] by [ profile] dkwilliams - two classic examples of 'you're using what song now?' that work absolutely beautifully and fill me with yay.


Also, SGA fic. I am so in love with this fandom at the moment, especially after Friday's episode, what with the spoilers! )

Many More, by [ profile] sheafrotherdon
~ 970 words, John/Rodney, PG. Tag to 5x14: The Prodigal. Almost all dialogue taken directly from the show.

Finish Line, by [ profile] dogeared
John/Rodney, 350 words, wee tiny tag to 5x14 - The Prodigal

Intentions, by [ profile] cathalin
John/Rodney, PG. This is Ronon's and my attempt to fix some of what was, er, interesting, about Tracker.

Yeah, McKay/Sheppard is pretty much my drug of choice this week. :D


Anyone got cheerful recs of their own they'd like to share? I rather suspect we need them.


In conclusion:

such_heights: amy and rory looking at a pile of post (Default)
Oh man, the post that just went up at [ profile] face_of_joe had me smiling for a full five minutes. I may not be heavily involved in SGA fandom, but it's hard to imagine there could possibly be a greater community out there. OH JOHN. ♥


The [ profile] dw_femslash ficathon stories are going up right now, hurray. A couple of highlights so far:

Six Impossible Things, by [ profile] netgirl_y2k
Donna/Romana, PG, spoilers for 'Journey's End'
My favourite impossible thing.

YES, basically. Lovely, lovely fix-it, because the Doctor doesn't always know everything.

Scattered all Across the Sands, by [ profile] magicallaw
Rose/Martha, PG
She can see all of time and creation. At least, she thought she could.

Fragmented timelines and perfect characterisation and gorgeous writing, I'll be reading this one a few more times.

We All Want To Change The World, by [ profile] st_aurafina
Martha/Ace, PG
After the Dalek invasion, Martha finds working for UNIT unsatisfying. Fortunately, Ace is playing by Perivale rules.

In which Ace is awesome, and there are both caves and chips, and Martha Makes A Decision. Light but layered, it's a lot of fun.

Totally unrelated, but a story I stumbled across earlier today and apparently missed out on when it was a big hit:

They Grip The Ground, by [ profile] giddygeek
Team Torchwood, vaguely Jack/Ianto, PG

In which the team are trees, using their imaginations. Oh my heavens this is hysterical, and considering Torchwood canon, entirely plausible. Plus, this is so in-character it hurts. :D
such_heights: amy and rory looking at a pile of post (sga: team)
The Alien-Fighters' Social Club
Torchwood/Stargate: Atlantis ; Team Torchwood & Team Sheppard ; PG-13 ; 2500 words
Sheppard and his team were to stay based with Torchwood Three until such a time as the Daedalus was in orbit. A chance to improve inter-organisational relations, apparently.

written for [ profile] dw_cross, originally posted here, beta'd by [ profile] multiclassgeek

Rodney blanched. 'Cardiff? Oh, this is worse than I thought.' )
such_heights: amy and rory looking at a pile of post (dw: donna wonder)
And lo, the Doctor Who post-finale creative explosion! Marvellous. A couple of recs below the spoiler cut, plus a brief chat on why I'm reading some types of stories much more readily than others.

4x13 spoilers! )

And thus a half-year of delightful Whoverse goodness comes to an end. *sadface* But! There is something to keep me occupied! Adventures in the Big Gay Multiverse Space Opera can continue apace what with SGA coming back on air tonight, so that's something. It does amuse me how you have Torchwood, which is actually really gay, Doctor Who, which is also pretty gay, and then Atlantis, which is incredibly gay by accident. And I have new evidence for this! For those playing along at home, the premier for Season Five has been touted via a lot of very bad, no good photo-shopped publicity shots, but this latest one, seen via [ profile] sheafrotherdon, has found a new level of unintentional hilarity.

seriously, who makes this stuff? no spoilers. )
such_heights: amy and rory looking at a pile of post (Default)
Argh, need to be writing. Instead, am procrasting via this fun, fun activity. Inspired by this, the "what show are you watching" meme.

Are you watching what I'm watching? )
