Supernatural | Jimmy, Leviathan, Claire, Amelia | Mature | 5904 words | warning: gore, body horror, self-harm He’s still Jimmy Novak who has never had anything bad happen to him.
Many fics deal with the trauma of angelic possession but this is the first one I've read about the trauma of leviathan possession. I have missed
fic like this, man. The writing is halfway between gorgeous and creepy. I cannot recommend this enough.Nothing else to say
Inception | Robert/Saito | Mature | 807 wordsThe year is 2003, and Robert Fischer doesn’t recognise Tadashi Saito when he sees him.
Saito fic is so rare, which is unfortunate because he's the character I'm most interested in reading fic for, and Robert/Saito is my favorite pairing based on some elaborate post-movie headcanon I have about one or both of them descending into post-inception neurosis. So this fic was really nice to find.
Third of all, for switchbladesis
's birthday, I wrote her fic about Ben Edlund being a muppet, because he is. I'm reposting that here.A Very Muppet Metamorphosis
with apologies to Franz Kafka. ~900 words of gen.( One morning, as Ben Edlund was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that during his mid-morning office nap he had been changed into a muppet.Collapse )[originally posted at http://whynot.dreamwidth.org/239681.html | comments]
Out on the Wire
by LithiumDoll | Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
| gen, ensemble | teen & up | 60,800 words
I know some people are like "bring back Firefly!" and "bring back Arrested Development!" but the Sarah Connor Chronicles is my Arrested Firefly, man. This fic feels like the season 3 that could've been. It does with T:SCC what I think Apocrypha
(aka BEST SPN FIC EVER) did with Supernatural in that it ties up all these loose ends so nicely, and in such a satisfying way.Buoyancy
by ethrosdemon | Teen Wolf
| Danny/Stiles | R | 14,548 words
Who isn't drinking the Teen Wolf kool-aid these days. The pairing wouldn't even occur to me but I'd pretty much follow ethrosdemon's fic into hell and beyond, so, gave it a shot. WORTH IT. There's an awareness and refreshing sociability to the Danny voice that is just DELIGHTFUL, I mean this Danny is a GREAT PERSON and he's so chill and has such candor and I want to hang with him always? There's a part 1/4 into the fic that is simultaneously tragic and hilarious, and I LOL'd as my heart broke, and I have great admiration for any writer who can balance that kind of mood whiplash. Thoroughly absorbing.
In other news, I wrote another 8x02 episode coda
, prompted by Pri. It's 400ish words of gen. Warning for shmoop. (Shmangst?)
Shifting gears to fairy tales, because Fables (spoilers through issue 94-ish). I am enjoying this series, but I have ( brief questions and complaints.Collapse )[originally posted at http://whynot.dreamwidth.org/239025.html | comments]
I'm this month's "Ask the Author" on spnroundtable
! So if you guys got any questions about why I think Castiel is a deer with trees for antlers or something, drop on by
In other exciting news, I can haz a be_themoon
, at least until Monday. :DDDDDDDDDDDD
In less exciting news, I feel like I'm the only person not watching Teen Wolf these days, but this is a lie, because I have watched some Teen Wolf and can somehow discuss it at length even though I've only watched 1.5 episodes because THAT'S WHAT FANNISH OSMOSIS DOES TO YOU. THIS IS A GIFT!!
SDCC, man. Why do Jensen and Misha try so hard to make me ship Jensen/Misha? why do they do that. (why is it working)
I ACTUALLY ALSO HAVE SOME BEN EDLUND/MISHA COLLINS ~FEELINGS which at first began as like "lololol what if Misha was Ben's muse" but then Comic Con happened and then all the ~*~*CANON*~*~ where Cas is Ben's favorite character to write, and Misha can watch Ben work for hours, and Ben thinks Misha brings new life to the show, and they both think the other charming psychopaths, and they obviously adore each other omg, and then their ~creative process~ when filming 7x21 and and aaaaand now I want this RPF. Of like. Ben and Misha trolling the goddamn world and sometimes they eat Fruit Roll-Ups. supernaturallyflaccid@tumblr prompted me to write this, but I can't say I wasn't asking for it:( A PHONE CALL BETWEEN BEN EDLUND AND MISHA COLLINS IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNCollapse )[originally posted at http://whynot.dreamwidth.org/237633.html | comments]
