Yesterday there was angsty post-S2 Torchwood fic
, like fandom needs another, I know. Still, an interesting thing to attempt in my continuing adventures in pastures new.
It occurs to me that I have a big pile of fics I've been meaning to rec for some time. As remixredux08
is coming up (whee!) and I'll no doubt be spamming your flists with links from that next week, seems like it's high time I unearthed a few things.
This also serves as a reminder to myself of how little progress I've made on either of my own submissions to these fests to date, ohhh dear. Anyway, onto the recs - enjoy! Both of these communities have had whole heaps of wonderful stuff on them already, more than I've had time to read, so do go and explore.

Firefly; PG; Simon, Mal, River. Post-Serenity.Prompt: Malcolm Reynolds. No one knows that Mal used to have woman parts, and no one needs to. But when he needs medical attention, Simon finds out, and he doesn't understand why it needs to be a secret. After all, everyone on the ship knows who's rutting whom.
Oh yes, this is fantastic. Excellent characterisation all delivered with light, intelligent touches, and gentle humour. The snapshots we get of Mal's past are fascinating, as are the suggestions of the state of transgender issues in the 'verse, and it features River as her fabulous self.Those People: On the History of Wizarding Britain's Attitude Toward Sexuality

Harry Potter; unratedPrompt: A Hogwarts student researches for an essay on the Wizarding World's LGBT history.
Pansy Parkinson writes an essay on the history of wizarding gay rights. Arch and insightful, this meshes beautifully into HP canon and offers many thought-provoking suggestions, all delivered with a charming dry wit.
