Still working on cleaning out my recs backlog. Here we have recs for TV fic!

Jeeves and the Inferior Valet, or, Thomas and the Kindest Man in England
, by [ profile] Alex51324 - Jeeves & Wooster/Downton Abbey crossover
Thomas Barrow + Jeeves/Wooster, 13k. Recced to the moon and back already, but I shall rec it again, because it is delightful. Wooster rescues Thomas from an unfortunate situation, but of course it's up to Jeeves to actually bring things to rights, which he does, despite how Thomas's utter ineptitude as a valet pains him. The voices are perfect throughout. I laughed out loud multiple times. Highly recommended.

What Is Dark Within Me, Illuminate by [ profile] sprocket - Babylon 5
Timov, 2.6k. I've read almost no B5 fic on account of avoiding spoilers, but someone told me that Timov never returned to the show, so I felt comfortable reading this one. It's set mid-episode and gives us Timov's own perspective and state of mind, and I was immediately fascinated by Timov in the episode, so I enjoyed this a lot.

Keep the Bouquets, Throw Away the Grooms by [ profile] Netgirl_y2k - Game of Thrones
Margaery/Sansa, 2.8k. You guys, it's Margaery/Sansa arranged marriage fic. It is made of sunshine and light and knowingly raised eyebrows. I would read another 40k of it if I could.

Queen in the North by [ profile] brutti_ma_buoni - Game of Thrones
Sansa/Brienne, 1.6k. The world is burning, Sansa and Brienne are fleeing north, and they find some unexpected solace in each other. Bittersweet and exactly the right length.

Go Wash Your Heart in the River by [ profile] mardia - Sleepy Hollow
Jenny + Abbie + Crane gen, 13k. A casefic aside in which a woman is murdered and the trio is haunted by crows. This has everything I loved about Sleepy Hollow when I tried to watch it - Crane vs the 20th century, Abbie and Crane's weird but willing relationship, Abbie and Jenny's damaged sibling relationship still in the process of mending, and a gray New England moodiness - and only glancing reference to the stuff I didn't, like the apocalypse plot. Basically if the show were this, I would watch it every week, and as it isn't, I would gladly read tons more fic in this vein. (Recs welcome.) Everyone here feels like a fully-realized person on their own right, with all the complexity that implies, and the Jenny-Abbie part of it in particular gets some lovely nuanced development. Just wonderful.

apparently I can't be bothered to find out titles )

General reminder: I haven't read the books and don't mean to, so I appreciate very much all efforts made to keep from spoiling me. For lo, I am a delicate flower. Gracias. :)

Pretty clear what I did with my weekend, eh?

It's a bit of weird experience, knowing that I'm soon going to run out of new episodes, and yet I could read the books and find out another three seasons worth of plot. I don't particularly want to read the books, though; I think I'd rather the surprises happen to me on screen, rather than on the page, since I've come this far with the show already. But of course that means I'll have to sit by knowing lots of people know lots more about the story than I do. It also makes venturing into any kind of fandom a treacherous activity.

In terms of spoilers, it's a weird place to be in.

speaking of spoilers, about S2... )

Yes, I finished the first season yesterday. It's been a while since I've had a show where I just flat wanted to know what happened next like I do with this show.

spoilers aplenty )
snickfic: (Giles snow)
As is probably obvious by now, I've been having trouble sticking with one TV show for very long. I'm much, much better at starting shows than at finishing them. I feel a little bad about this, but, eh.

Anyway, I have, much to my surprise, come into a full set of DVDs for the first two seasons of Game of Thrones, and have begun watching. (I've never read the books. However, I am spoiled for a particular Big Thing that happens at the end of S1.)

first, a rant, in which I am not kind at all )

and about the rest of the show )
