snickfic: alpha/beta/omega: mpreg, alpha women, genderswappy het dynamics (alpha/beta/omega)
Updated 05/26/17 - I'm no longer actively looking for new fics to put here, but if I run across something that fits, I add it.

This is a spin-off from The Epic A/B/O List. The portion of that list dealing with female characters is by far the fastest-growing (w00t!), so I'm breaking it off into its own list, here. I'll continue to add fics featuring ladies to categories in the other post as I find them, but this is meant to be a vaguely comprehensive listing of all a/b/o fic in which one of the primary characters is female.

Most of what I have here, I've found a) because it's in one of my fandoms (BtVS, SPN, SPN RPF), b) through AO3, or c) via [ profile] a_b_o_ladies. There's a few I have read yet. Of those I have read, I've marked a few of my very favorites with double asterisks (**). This isn't to say they're the best or explore the issues in the most interesting way or have the hottest porn (really not), but that they make me happy.

If you know of appropriate fics that aren't listed here, please, link me! Self-reccing is encouraged. All fandoms are welcome.

1. Sign-ups are open over at [ profile] spn_j2_xmas. Do I have room for one more exchange? Do I? Erg.

2. It occurs to me that much as I love the spirit of SPN RPF fandom, possibly there are other fandoms that better combine the wonderful crack (mermen! dragons! empaths! were-echidnas! although I'm still waiting on that last one) with the unsquicky rom-commy het I yearn for. Any recommendations? Preferably a Western fandom with either a fair bit of activity or a fair backlog of fic. (I suppose I ought to go hunt up some Marvel movieverse fic, hadn't I? But where does one even start? And is there enough het crack to make it worth my while?)

3. As soon as I post my epic list of A/B/O, of course I find something I'd have put on it. Specifically, No Limited Dimensions, by [ profile] cleflink, in which John Watson is shot and wakes up in a world of omegas and alphas and other things he doesn't understand at all. It's gen, and it's GLORIOUS.

A Scandal in Fandom: Steven Moffat, Irene Adler, and the Fannish Gaze, by [ profile] jblum. I don't have a stake in the Irene Adler debate - I liked the episode and would be happy to leave it at that, this time around - but the author here has some points that I like. (Via [personal profile] selenak. )

In which Downton Abbey is not at all like Jane Austen, by [personal profile] talibusorabat. What it says on the tin. I found this while looking at Dear Yuletide letters, and kept forgetting to post it.

I fiddled with some most of the categories to avoid repeats and reflect the fact that I mostly watch shows that are already finished.

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011 and watch all the way through?

Supernatural, Downton Abbey, Sherlock. I think that's it.

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011 and didn't finish, but still mean to?

Avatar: The Last Airbender, Battlestar Galactica, Farscape, Twin Peaks, The Vampire Diaries.

Which TV shows did you try in 2011 and gave up on?

Ringer? I dunno, that one's still up in the air. I might get back to it. Also Sliders (I watched the mpreg episode), ST: Enterprise (ditto). Dr. Who. (I may still try DW again, but guys, is hard. I can't seem to find my way into this show. It and me are unmixy things, apparently.) The X-Files.

What other shows did you watch this year?

The West Wing (still planning to finish), So You Think You Can Dance (yay!), ST:TOS (I just dabbled, but want to get back to it).

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2012?

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Babylon 5, Dexter, ST:TOS. Possibly Misfits, The Walking Dead, Mad Men? Really, though, these are all "sometime in the future" shows; they don't necessarily have to happen next year.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why?

Supernatural. Given everything I have already gone through with this show, it's pretty clear I'm in it until the bitter end, now.

Snagged from [ profile] selenak and [ profile] kathyh

Your main fandom of the year? It's still all about BtVS for me.

Your favourite film watched this year? Shoot. I don't keep track of movies the way I do other things. Um, Toy Story 3 was Pixar being brilliant as usual. Also I rediscovered my love for the old Disney cartoon Robin Hood, which is wonderful fun.

Your favourite book read this year? A toss-up here between one/all of Megan Whalen Turner's Eugenides books (I GET IT NOW, YOU GUYS) and Sunshine by Robin McKinley, which despite some shaky worldbuilding was pretty much everything I never knew I wanted in a vampire novel.

Your favourite album or song to listen to this year? If I had to pick one favorite new thing, it'd probably be "Comfort Eagle," by Cake - which is hilarious, because it is sooo not representative of my tastes. But I love it.

Your favourite TV show of the year? Again, I am undecided. I adored the first episode of Sherlock but then felt resoundingly meh about the other two; does that even count? And I devoured the first season of Veronica Mars like a mad, mad thing (seriously, I did pretty much nothing else that week), but can't get up the energy for season 2. Eh.

Your best new fandom discovery of the year? I actually read a fair few stories for Sherlock fandom (mostly because of [ profile] ladyofthelog and her enabling recs lists), so I guess we'll say that.

Your biggest fandom disappointment of the year? Season 8. Not that my expectations were high for the comics themselves, but they've made my corner of fandom sad.

Your TV boyfriend of the year? Nobody new. I caught a few episodes of Chuck, though, and ohmygoodness he is still the nicest guy on TV. I want him, please.

Your TV girlfriend of the year? Um. Um? Well, Dawn Summers is still my girl and this year has only made me love her more, so we'll say Dawn.

Your biggest squee moment of the year? About half the scenes in "A Study in Pink": John shooting at the end; Lestrade's "brilliant man / good man" line, which suggested so much yummy potential; pretty much every bit of Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman being absolutely perfect. Yeah.

The most missed of your old fandoms? [ profile] eowyn_315 and I reminisced about seaQuest DSV quite a bit. I was never fannishly involved, but it was my first TV love.

The fandom you haven't tried yet, but want to? If I end up liking Avatar: The Last Airbender half as much I think I might, then I'm definitely going hunting for the fic that people on the flist have been writing - [ profile] stultiloquentia comes to mind. It's a show that's totally different from BtVS, but looks to me like it might have some of the same flexibility. We shall see.

Yes, yes, my fellow Americans, we can now legally watch the entire glorious hour and a half of A Study in Pink, the best of the new Sherlock series. And for free! Go forth, partake, and report back!

It occurs to me that, in broader entertainment culture, the equivalent of the all-human AU not only gets written once in a while, but turns out to be pretty darn good. I would not have said that Sherlock Holmes was a character that needed a present-day AU, but I was wrong.

In which I like Sherlock and dislike non-canon AUs )

Speaking of Sherlock, Abigail Nussbaum gets there first and says it better, as usual. I think I am slightly more optimistic than she is, although she raises some excellent concerns.
snickfic: (mood movies/tv)
I'm only a little bit late to the party this time. The show is excellently cast and has a fabulous score. I'm really liking the John/Sherlock friendship, as well as the hinted-at potential of seeing some actual character growth (as opposed to the last Holmes-analogue, House).

"Study in Pink" is glorious fun with great writing at both plot level. Alas, "The Blind Banker" isn't any of those things. I was rather bored. Still, I'm looking forward to the third one.

Now, will all the folks that were squeeing about this weeks ago kindly point me toward their squee so I can catch up?
