+ [community profile] white_lotus Lunar New Year Exchange is now open for signups. All fanworks, all characters and ships in the Avatar: the Last Airbender & Legend of Korra verse. We've had amazing stuff in previous years - fic, poetry, vids, art, crafts, icons, lots of things. I don't think we've ever had podfic before, though, and I'd love that to change!

+ My [community profile] femslash12 story is AWESOME.

[personal profile] glass_icarus: 48 CDs brb dying
[personal profile] glass_icarus: I WOULD BUY ALL OF THOSE
[personal profile] glass_icarus: WITH REAL CASH
[personal profile] such_heights: HAHAHAHA SRSLY.

+ [community profile] festivids is submitted LIKE A BOSS. \o/ Of course now I am dreadfully anxious that it's horrible and everyone who watches it will hate it but, um. That will pass! And omg vidsplosion on the 22nd I am excited.

+ LJ-related tip: if you mod an inactive community, you might want to think about putting it on moderating posting. Brought to you after having to delete 40 pornbot spam entries from [livejournal.com profile] tardis_gen this afternoon. D:

Recs!

+ A Cup O' Kindness (Or, Five Men That Elena Turned Down, And The One Girl She Didn't) by [personal profile] fly_to_dawn (Merlin, Elena/various)

Elena fic! And every character who appears in this is lovely.

+ Now That You Mention It by [personal profile] telesilla (SGA, John/Rodney)

NNG. Awesomely done first time kink fic with great characterisation.

+ No Turning Back by [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill (Merlin, Elyan/Gwaine)

Elyan/Gwaine! eee! They are so perfect together in this. [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill always does a fabulous job of creating emotional dynamics between characters that run the gamut from snarky to heartfelt in two lines, and this is a gorgeous example.

+ ride until we fall by [archiveofourown.org profile] handyhunter (Red Cliff, Sûn Shàngxiâng)

Sûn Shàngxiâng! This is a fantastic exploration of her character and her position post-film, and her interactions with everyone else are wonderful, especially Zhûgě Liàng. ♥!

+ eta: Oh, and I have tickets to go see David Tennant and Catherine Tate in Much Ado About Nothing in London in the summer. TODAY IS A GOOD DAY.
such_heights: a girl reads a book in the grass (stock: fairy tales)
The story for me got posted at [livejournal.com profile] springtime_gen! It is delightful!

Here Is No Place, by anonymous
Harry Potter ; Lily, James, Sirius ; PG
A housewarming party The Greatest Party Ever yields a quiet moment between friends.

Aw! This is absolutely lovely. Bantery and affection and the easy use of magic, but with an underlying sense of what's to come. A great read!

Also, omg, I am just so happy the fic below now exists:

Salt Water, by [livejournal.com profile] lefaym
Malory Towers ; Mary-Lou/Darrell ; PG
The taste of salt water always reminded Mary-Lou to be brave, even after all these years.

I'd barely thought about Malory Towers in years, but the first paragraph of this story was enough to bring it all rushing back. This makes fantastic use of a World War 2 setting to pick up again with Mary-Lou and Darrell, who are so perfectly in character. Gentle, real, and generally fabulous.

I keep deciding that I will sit down and write out some recs for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest, but then my tabs keep multiplying as everyone keeps posting wonderful stuff. \o/ Clearly I'll be doing in this batches, here's the first lot. I've only had time to read the transgendered stuff so far, so here's ome of the things I've read there already and loved, on something of a theme:

Discworld

Modern Love, by [livejournal.com profile] penknife
Discworld ensemble ; PG-13
It's amazing how the world rarely gets less complicated.

[livejournal.com profile] penknife takes on issues of queerness and gender presentation in the dwarf community and brings a thoroughly enjoyable story to life with her usual lightness of touch.

Iron Man

Walking in these Shoes, by [livejournal.com profile] redfiona99
Pepper/Tony ; PG ; spoilers for the film
Pepper Potts is the woman she'd always wanted to be. It's probably not all Tony's fault that her well-ordered life has just been blown to pieces. But it's definitely mostly his fault.

Not only is this a thoughtful and kick-ass study of Pepper, it also features explosions. That's all you really need to make me a happy reader.

Supernatural

Now You're a Man, by [livejournal.com profile] cho_malfoy
Dean ; PG ; spoilers for 4x01
Dean completed a journey in the body he was born with, but just because he's started a new journey doesn't mean he's likely to forget the last one.

I love Dean in this, I love the style, and I love the twist on the fourth season presented here: I know it's one I'd loved to have watched.

Turn The Page, by [livejournal.com profile] messageredacted
Sam/Dean ; NC-17 ; AU of the pilot
Sam hasn’t seen his sister in four years. A lot more has changed than he ever imagined.

Sam/Dean is not particularly my thing, but this is a very good story. The retelling of the pilot is very nicely done, and there's a lot of detail and pitch-perfect interaction here.

Torchwood

What He Should Have Been, by [livejournal.com profile] sunnyrea
Ianto, Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Jack ; PG-13
When Ianto was a little girl all he wanted was to be able to wear his father's suits. Now he does, but his family doesn't want anything to do with him.

This story's got a lot of heart to it, and it makes me smile. Oh, Ianto.

Also, not connected to the fest but nonetheless a great story - Little Sister by [livejournal.com profile] invisible_lift, a beautifully-written family history for Tosh.

Quick recs for three ficlets that made me laugh!

Got you by [livejournal.com profile] makesitpretty [Black Books, Bernard/Fran], from [livejournal.com profile] oxoniensis's porn battle but mostly this is just hilarious, OH FRAN.

The One With The Love Spell by [livejournal.com profile] out_there [Merlin, Merlin/Arthur], which has the most sparkling, delightful dialogue, OH GAIUS.

Both Alike In Dignity by [livejournal.com profile] siriaeve [SGA, John/Rodney], in which Rodney and John are like Romeo and Juliet. Sort of. OH RODNEY. :D

Huh. I appear to be eyeing up [livejournal.com profile] tardis_bigbang and [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang [multi-fandom femslash]. That way lies madness, I'm quite sure! And yet. Big Bang participants of times yore, talk to me! Is it terrifying and horrible, or is is thrilling and the source of new and wondrous inspiration? I'm guessing a bit of both.
