snickfic: [Saga] Alana cradling Hazel and holding a cudgel (Alana)
Okay, I only got to read about a third of Saga #24 before it quit loading, and I have to go to work, so I don't have time to mess with it right now, but AHHHHHHHH. This is EVERYTHING I WANT IN THE WORLD. Well, for certain values of 'everything.' I want a lot of things in this book. And it'll probably all end tragically by the end of the issue. But meanwhile, AHHHHHHHH.

*seal claps*

UPDATE: I have now read the entire issue (fyi: this is really, really not a SFW issue, thank goodness there was no one else hanging out in the adjunct cubicles...), and it is EVEN MORE EVERYTHING I WANTED. YOU GUYS. YOU GUYS.

spoilers galore )
snickfic: close-up photo of Marc-Andre Fleury (fleury close)
Not a typo. So, this was fun.

* Devils scored nine seconds into the game. We recovered.

* Seven Pens scored goals, including members of all four lines. (Downie scored his first as a Pen! Also: Adams!!) Twelve Pens got at least one point.

* Our power play was 3/7, and that's including the last one, which was played by the PP unit otherwise known as "the fourth line and bottom D pairing." (Announcers said Zach Sill was all grins when he came off the ice. Those were surely his first NHL PP minutes ever.) Sample sizes, regress to the mean, yada yada, but in the meantime our PP is sixteen percentage points ahead of the next PP in the league.

* And hey, our PK has killed of 18 in a row now, tying us for 12th! Not bad for a team that was worst in the league 4-5 games ago.

* All the goalies were bad. Flower was marginally less bad (0.842) than Schneider (pulled after second period, 0.783) and Clemmensen (0.700 - maybe should have left Schneider in, eh?). The difference was that our offense was having a heck of a lot more fun than theirs was.

* If we hadn't already passed the point of adding insult to injury, that final goal by Crosby on the breakaway surely did.

Kings on Thursday. I'd say they'll probably give us a harder time, but they've been losing to some pretty mediocre teams, so we shall see.

Says here that we're getting:
* a Captain Marvel movie (FINALLY)
* a Black Panther movie (FINALLY)
* two Avengers 3 movies (cha-ching)
* Captain America 3: Civil War (...it could be good. No, it could be, if it follows the comics continuity the way PotC: On Stranger Tides followed the Tim Powers novel. Which is say, by stealing the title and ditching EVERYTHING ELSE)

And, uh, some other stuff. I dunno. *flails feebly*
snickfic: On With the Exposition (mood writing)
I whipped this out for a meme prompt of "Write a three-sentence fic for the first fandom you were fannish about," which in my case would be seaQuest DSV. However, I definitely wouldn't have written something like this then; when I was 11, my ships were Bridger/Westphalen and Lucas/me. :D My fascination with the S1 Krieg/Hitchcock ship came later.

Size Matters - seaQuest DSV, Hitchcock/Krieg (kind of)
It's not her first sub, not by a long shot, but with its moon pool, its decks upon decks of bunks and labs and diplomatic chambers, its tubes of seawater set aside specifically for the damned dolphin to swim through, the seaQuest is by far the largest sub Katie Hitchcock has ever been stationed on.

"Ah, Commander," Ben - Lieutenant Krieg - calls genially from behind her.

Which isn't to say the seaQuest is large enough.
snickfic: photo, Marc-Andre Fleury makes a save (pens)
5-3 Flyers.

On the plus side:
* Our fourth line scored! Twice! There'd been some concern about our new, supposedly improved depth not scoring, but hopefully that concern's been put to rest. Also, first Pens goals for both Spaling and Goc.

* No Pens injuries (despite Sutter getting a puck to the cheekbone - betcha that'll bruise impressively).

* Our PK was at 100% again.

That's it. Those are all the positives. :PPP

As Anne Shirley says, today is a new game with no mistakes in it. Yet.

Title: worn for sleeping
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing/Characters: Jess, Sam
Words/Rating: 1300 words / PG rating
Spoilers: through 5.21
Summary: It takes three tubes of paint – three shades carelessly selected, though when she finishes Jess sees each one is progressively more red – to write Sam’s name on the wall.

A/N: And here is my [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen fic, written for TammyRenH! One of her prompts involved Jess, and I knew immediately it was the one I had to write, but the most important conceit to this fic didn't occur to me until later.

I worried a little that it might be too shippy for Summergen, but no one complained, so I guess I was sufficiently low key about the ship. And the meta aspect wasn't planned at all and snuck in completely on its own.

I maaay write some author commentary on it. First I have to go answer the lovely comments, though. :D

Match Point by [personal profile] salmon_pink
Pepper/Sif, one-shot. First they spar, then they have sex very attractively. And there's humor, too!

The Ties That Bind by [archiveofourown.org profile] Odsbodskins
Steve/Bucky + Natasha, a/b/o, 26k. One of my favorite a/b/o fics to appear in quite some time, with tons of interesting worldbuilding (including text excerpts! One from Mary Roach, even!) dealing with lots of aspects of a/b/o life that don't seem to turn up very often. Also has omega!Steve, which immediately endeared the fic to me. Also has Steve and Natasha off missioning together, which made me ridiculously happy. I love Natasha in this. I love everything in this.

Fair warning, this was written pre-Winter Soldier, so it's definitely an AU in the jossed sense. Has a lot of events inspired by comics stuff, but mixed and matched, so no comics knowledge necessary.

Re-Habituation by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Bucky/Natasha, a/b/o, 3k. This isn't shippy in the strict sense; it's about Natasha exploring a part of herself that was previously only controlled and exploited, and doing that exploration with someone she trusts. I especially like the identity stuff this fic explores, and I tend to be a sucker for sex-between-friends scenarios like this one. Just neat.

Experiment in red by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade
Bucky+Wanda gen, 4k. The Winter Soldier makes friends with one of HYDRA's experiments. I LOVE unexpected moments of grace and friends found in unexpected places, and this has that in spades. It also deals a lot with the terrible things, including brainwashing, that happen to both Wanda and Bucky, so be forewarned. (I have the uncomfortable feeling that this fic is far kinder and more complex in its characterization of Wanda than canon is going to be. >:( )

measure of affection by [archiveofourown.org profile] bullroars
GotG team gen, 1.5k. drax the destroyer does not need a hug. Neat happy-feeling gen where the team takes care of its own, however fumblingly. Very sweet.

All This Red Tape by [archiveofourown.org profile] TigerDragon
girl!Peter/Gamora, 3.5k In which the girls are still working out how they work together, in both the feelings department and the pants department. There's some low-key xeno here for those that like it, and just a lot of very appealing fumbling stops and starts as Gamora and Piper Quill try to figure each other out.
snickfic: [Hawkeye] Kate looking over the top of her sunglasses (Kate)
I have thirty-seven "to rec" links on Pinboard. I mean to slowly work my way through them in themed bunches. This is the comics bunch.

calm me down, get it out by [archiveofourown.org profile] defcontwo
Black Widow comics, Natasha/Yelena, 4.5k. This is hands down my favorite "pretending to be together" fic I have ever read. Because in this, they're pretending to be together for a spy mission, and instead of celibate pining we have angry UST and then angry very-much-RST. As in canon, Yelena is all tied up in Natasha, and as in canon, Natasha alternately laughs at and indulges that obsession. This is great stuff.

Hit by [archiveofourown.org profile] basset_voyager
Kate Bishop gen, 1k. I don't know what the canonical story is behind why Kate takes up archery (or if there even is one), but I really like this version: she practices as a form of taking control, fighting back against sleeze balls, taking ownership of the space she occupies. Does not depend on any particular YA or Hawkeye canon.

happy hour by [archiveofourown.org profile] jouissant
Saga, The Will + The Stalk gen, 1k. Mission completed, The Will and The Stalk take a breather, and The Will contemplates his occupation. Neat, low-key little character piece.

Red Pen by [archiveofourown.org profile] Hsifeng
Saga, Hazel + Izabel gen, 2.5k. THIS IS SO GOOD. This is the school report of one Hazel, having interviewed her friend Izabel for the purpose. Documents fic! Worldbuilding more cohesive and coherent than I think Vaughan and Staples have created (or aspire to create, for that matter). Just really neat at taking details of the Saga universe and weaving them into a proposed whole (although this was written after #8, so some of it, particularly stuff about the robots, has since been jossed). Very nifty.
snickfic: (Buffy no good)
This website is nabbing and reposting LJ fic. I'm told the admin will take down stuff down if the author complains, but is otherwise standing firm on his perceived right to repost anything he likes without permission. [livejournal.com profile] ladydragon76 has more information.

[livejournal.com profile] kwritten, there's TVD fic on the first page that was written for you, but it doesn't say who it's by. Taken care of.
snickfic: (Buffy Willow)
I wonder what makes the difference between fic I want and write, and fic I want but don't know how (or precisely what) to write.

Like, I came into a/b/o wanting lots of fic with ladies, and lo, I have written MUCH A/B/O WITH LADIES. Similarly, although I haven't written any Guardians of the Galaxy fic, but I do have very specific ideas of what I want, and I may well end up writing it at some point.

OTOH, I really want fic for Marc-Andre Fleury, and I have no idea what I want. I don't have any hardcore ship feelings, and I don't really want kink, I just want... more Flower? IDK. Similarly, I desperately want tons of fic with Betsy and Fantomex related to Uncanny X-Force, but I don't know what. See also: Kevin Tran.

What about you guys? Have you noticed any patterns between things you want and can or can't write?

I have tons of other fannish projects right now and am also not really in SPN headspace, but am promoting this anyway because it looks so neat.

No, YT signups aren't open yet. I posted because I thought there was a letters post happening, but it seems to be looking a little suspicious? Oh, well. In any case: my letter is all done! Ahead of schedule!
snickfic: (Yuletide)
YULETIDE. I thought I was excited last year, and yet somehow this year I am even more excited. Last year I comfortably found four things to request; this year I had to squeeze and squeeze before I managed to get my requests down to six.

I hope that you, dear author, are feeling similarly excited. I'm thrilled to have you writing something for me, and the fact that you offered one of these fandoms at all tells me that you have excellent taste. I'm so excited to read whatever it is you choose to write!

Also: personally, when I write for really small fandoms I end up putting all this pressure on myself to write The Definitive Fic in the fandom, but that's silly. If you feel the same, please be assured that I'm not hoping for the fic, just a fic. :)

So, on with the requests.

snickfic: black and white image of Sidney Crosby, text "Crosby" (crosby)
* Another 3-point game for Sid. That puts him on pace for 246 points for the season. Ain't math great?

* Okay, I approve of this Hornqvist dude. I say we keep him. Both Thursday and tonight he was so active down low, it was fantastic. And he had a career-high SOG tonight, which bodes well for the "He's no Neal, but until Neal got to Pittsburgh he wasn't Neal either" theory.

* Speaking of Neal, here's my possible favorite commentary on the game: After Fleury freezes a puck, Clarkson tries to agitate Hornqvist by punching his shoulder. Hornqvist just smiled and skated away. We have doubts James Neal would have had the same composed reaction.

As a friend said, making fun of James Neal is always good.

* Goal for Geno! Two assists for Geno! He's looking much better than he did on Thursday (after which he gave this downer intervew).

* Playing the Leafs means we get a Steve Dangle reaction video tomorrow. Have you met Steve Dangle? He is a treasure.

IT'S BACK

:DDDDDD

Duper comes back from knee surgery and gets 4 points, Olli comes back from shoulder surgery and gets 3 points, Crosby comes back an injured wrist and undisclosed preseason injuries and scores 2 goals (aka more than he got in last year's playoffs), newbies Hornqvist and Comeau got goals, and first-time NHL coach wins his first game! \o/

On the down side, ugh, Flower. Flower, I love you, now STAY IN YOUR CREASE.

Talk about a rip-roaring start to the season.

(Do people want me to spoiler cut game reactions, either because of spoiling or in order to avoid Even More Hockey? Otherwise I won't bother.)

I've been having ideas of hosting a Buffyverse comment meme with a kink focus. Probably I'd make some kind of rule for all prompts and fills being made anon, because I really like that convention. Timing is questionable - I figure the best time has to be either within the next week or two, or else after the holidays.

Interested? Suggestions? Comments?

I just got around to watching that time Flower almost got in a fight with the Montreal goalie, and it cracked me up. He's grinning most of the time! He kinda dances around the ref, trying to get down the ice! He's untying the thing that keeps his jersey in place!

I <3 Flower.
