multi-fandom vids

Space Girl by [personal profile] charmax

Looks like half of fandom has already seen this, but just in case! So, so lovely, a fantastic look at the history of women in sci-fi.

Hands Away by [personal profile] chaila and [personal profile] beccatoria (Fringe/Sarah Connor Chronicles, Olivia/Sarah)

The Olivia/Sarah fever dream vid of my heart! I got to see a draft of this at Vidukon and it blew me away then - it's even more awesome now. Beautifully edited, full of visual parallels and really clever cutting and really brilliant all round.

The Price by [personal profile] thingswithwings

This is a biting satire about manpain. It's kind of amazing. People's reactions seem to vary from rage to facepalming to lulz - it's very funny in places, especially the end. Mostly, it makes me feel really sad. I wish this wasn't such an all-encompassing phenomenon in my shows. The accompanying meta is also an excellent read.

Hidden in Plain Sight by [personal profile] liseuse (Harry Potter, Pansy/Hermione)

For [livejournal.com profile] queer_fest, this is a gorgeous look at the difficulties and secret thrills of a covert relationship, as well as having a lovely grounding in the lives of these two young women and their friends, all being awesome post-Hogwarts. I enjoyed it a lot!

Grey. Red. Green. by [personal profile] calvinahobbes (Doctor Who, Vastra/Jenny)

a;ljsda. An awesome [community profile] kink_bingo story that derives its hotness entirely from Jenny's mental state and a sense of tension that permeates the whole story as Jenny investigates Vastra's swords.

[livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero and [livejournal.com profile] leiascully are both writing loads of wonderful Eleven/River stories at the moment. I recommend them all! Particular favourites of mine include [livejournal.com profile] coffeesuperhero's let's live in the moment just this time, could we? and [livejournal.com profile] leiascully's double your pleasure, double your fun.

Roles by [personal profile] pocketmouse (Doctor Who, Amy/Rory)

I was excited as soon as I heard this was a story about teenage Rory crossdressing, and it did not disappoint. So completely adorable and written with a lovely, light touch.

Team Bonding by [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash (Doctor Who/White Collar, Canton/OC, Diana/Christie)

Oh look, it's my two favourite queer FBI agents hanging out with each other! :DD Kait wrote this for me for my birthday and I love it ENTIRELY.

Over at [livejournal.com profile] taffimai's place we are showering the whoniverse characters with love, it is delightful! I am capslocking excessively. \o/

Yuletide recs! I am trying to read widely this year, so hopefully I can do a few themed rec sets. This first set consists of four great crossover/fusion stories about women being awesome and frequently making out with each other.

Lieutenant Bennet's Visit (3172 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Temeraire - Naomi Novik, Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Bennet, Darcy
Summary: Elizabeth’s reality is far different from her sisters’.

Obviously Lizzy Bennet is secretly in the Dragon Corps. It all makes sense now! This is a fantastic blending of the worlds and makes me want more.

Fools Rush In (Angels Fear to Tread) (1486 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Mary Poppins (1964), Tipping the Velvet - Sarah Waters
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Mary Poppins/Kitty Butler
Characters: Mary Poppins, Kitty Butler, Walter Bliss
Summary: When the wind changes, Mary Poppins accepts a job as a nanny and housekeeper for famous masher Kitty Butler, and loses her heart.

I'm so charmed by the idea of this, and the execution entirely delivers. It's also a fascinating glimpse into the world through Mary's eyes.

Guest Star (2415 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Merlin (BBC) RPF, Doctor Who RPF
Rating: Explicit
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Katie McGrath/Karen Gillan
Characters: Karen Gillan, Katie McGrath

There are some grammatical issues with this story but who cares, it's a story about Katie McGrath guest starring on Doctor Who and hooking up with Karen Gillan, obviously I ate it up with a spoon. :D

A Lady and a Gentleman In Black (6223 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Good Wife (TV), White Collar
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Kalinda Sharma - Relationship, Kalinda Sharma/Diana Barrigan
Characters: Diane Lockhart, Kalinda Sharma, Peter Burke (White Collar), Diana Barrigan (White Collar)
Summary: Kalinda Sharma encounters an agent from the white collar division of the New York FBI office. Or two. Being stuck with a Fed on her turf does not turn out to be exactly what she expected, and it certainly isn't a normal day for Stern, Lockhart, and Gardner.

I HAVE WANTED THIS FIC FOR SO LONG, AND NOW IT IS HERE. REJOICE.

Let me tell you about them.

Like A Fish Needs A Bicycle by [personal profile] netgirl_y2k (Merlin, Morgana/various, ensemble, PG-13)
In which Morgana is the gayest person in Camelot, Uther wants a wedding, Arthur tries to be helpful, Gwen's wasted on men and Vivian getting hit by that love spell ruins everything.

Written for [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest, this is wry, witty, sweet and ultimately rather heartbreaking - a perfect love letter to Morgana, really.

Into A Starry Night by [personal profile] builtofsorrow (Doctor Who, Wilf, G)

bb!Wilf in World War 2! A glorious snippet with a delightful cameo from some familiar faces.

This is the Start by [livejournal.com profile] pocky_slash (Doctor Who/White Collar fusion, Peter, Elizabeth, Neal, PG)
In which Peter isn't all that he seems and Neal just might get his hands on that music box after all.

IN WHICH PETER BURKE IS SECRETLY THE DOCTOR. OBVIOUSLY, IT IS AWESOME. Also, Elizabeth! <333

Minor Temporal Paradoxes by [personal profile] calapine (Doctor Who, Eleven/River, G)
The Doctor and River have a nice fireside chat and don't destroy the universe, well done them.

Spoilers for 5x05. This is lovely, which perfect character voices.
