Dudes! How are you? I haven't made a linkspam post in, um, maybe a year, but I am putting off studying for a standardized test that shall not be named, so: tada.

Dear sweet flist and rlist, I didn't abandon my Sunday linkspam posts because I stopped loving you. No, I stopped making them because I had fucking horrible Organic Chemistry to study.

AND LO, THAT IS OVER!

So! I bring you the following! (Please be warned that there may be swears within. And without, apparently.)

It's reading week! Or, in more practical terms, "the week in which I spend all my time online". So have some links, courtesy of my academic schedule and the fact that my mitten empire means I don't have to pick up extra bookstore shifts for a while.

Fic recommendations next!
merrily: Mac (Default)
[personal profile] mklutz said fandom could persuade her into Sherlock Holmes RPF in an instant. Tragically, it's taken me 23 hours since she said that to come up with a rec list.

I'M SORRY, EM. I WON'T FAIL YOU AGAIN.

Also, I had to read through everything on the [profile] sherlockkink comm in order to make this list. It was a horrible burden. I hope y'all appreciate the things I do for you.

Does your depravity know no bounds, sir? Seven Sherlock Holmes RPS Holmes/Watson fic recs )

IN CONCLUSION:
(If the embed isn't working, you can watch Jude Law read the lyrics to Poker Face here on YouTube.)

[And if you can't see this embed, it's RDJ mouthing the words to Elton John's "I Want Love" (why is he doing that? I don't know), and the vid is here on YouTube.]

Yay, recommendations!

I don't often get to recommend original work, but I really adored [personal profile] hetrez's fairytale story Outside The Sky Waits Beckoning, Beckoning which is very Le Petit Prince. It's short. Read now, or save it for a gloomy day when you're tired of being a grown-up.

AND LASTLY (and outside of the cut, because seriously, none of you want to miss this) -

So, first, in the realm of totally embarrassing and inappropriate Twilight tie-ins, there were these panties [found via Leila at Bookshelves Of Doom], which honestly, were bad enough. (After you click that link, scroll down for extra brain-bleach-needed-ness!)

BUT NOW THERE IS ALSO... DAH DAH DAH... a Twilight-themed dildo.

Um. Obviously, don't click on that link at work. Or watch the accompanying video, in which disembodied hand turns the dil in the light to catch the sparkles.

I only bring you the best internet items, my friends. Only the best.

(Recs forthcoming! And nothing Twilight-related there, I promise.)

ETA: [personal profile] christycorr let me know that there is a whole gallery of disturbing Twilight tie-ins. I made a lot of whimpering noises as I skimmed through. [via io9]

I just handed out awards to highschool students who won a poetry contest!

Although I was inspired to think snarky things -- even the best highschool poetry can't avoid the emo, it seems -- the kids were just so excited and happy that I can't write them down. They were awesome and I am not going to be mean.

Also, one of the featured (non-highschool) poets who read made me want to claw out my ears, so I'm feeling somewhat fond towards the 16 year olds with berets.

I have a new category! I read a lot of news stories this week about people being heroic, courageous or just down right gosh darn awesome, so they get their own section.

You'd think, given the size of my rec lists recently, that I wasn't spending any time online. Oh ho, that would be, um, not true.

Like last week, since I don't have all that much stuff to tell you about, I'm not cutting.

Due South
You know, I love [community profile] crack_van. It's entirely responsible for my growing obsession with Due South, and it's provided acres of awesome fanwork recommendations. For example, this week the driver suggested one of Spuffyduds' stories, Wink, which was pretty good, but then when I went to see what else she had written I found Saturday Clothes, which is just the most perfect first-time, Kowalski-voiced story of all time. And which has Ben & Ray wearing nearly-worn-out jeans in a ridiculous attempt to seduce each other! It is happiness in a mountie hat, my friends. Go read it. (Fraser/Kowalski, NC-17, favourite)

Merlin
[profile] giandukiss vidded One Foot Boy, which is an Arthur/Merlin vid of utter perfection. Utter.

SG:1
[personal profile] jaxon_knight's story In The Stars was a gorgeous surprise this week. It's an earthside AU, where Daniel gave up on academia after that (pre-canon) disastrous lecture about the pyramids and aliens, and ended up instead in Amsterdam, working as a prostitute, and raising his cousin's kids. Jack finds his way to the Red Light District tailing a suspect, and worlds collide. I know all those elements sound insane together, but I promise that this is a great, great story, plausible, well-plotted and full of achingly beautiful sex. Seriously. Think [personal profile] paian's ease with bodily tenderness -- this is the same feel. (Jack/Daniel, NC-17)

Star Trek
[profile] canis_takahari got inspired by Texts From Last Night and wrote Transferral, or Five texts that Jim sent Bones (and one that Bones sent back). (Kirk/McCoy, R)

Supernatural
[profile] fledmusic had a moment of mad genius and wrote Twitterpated, where Castiel starts using Twitter, because of the convenience. Delicious, delicious crack.

[personal profile] longsufferingly (also known as [personal profile] chash) wrote Constructive Criticism, where Castiel is dating, um, Sweets. I don't know. It just works, okay? (Bones/SPN crossover, R-ish)

C'est tout for this week!

It was a beautiful fall day today. The only thing that would've made it more seasonally perfect is if there was apple pie and pumpkin beer in my fridge. Maybe tomorrow?

It's been a looooong time since I've posted links & recs, and frankly, the size of my bookmark file is daunting.

So I am going to ignore it!

Instead, I thought today I would recommend people whom you might not be reading right now but whose work you might find awesome.

Basically, I am doing a friending meme all by myself. :-)

LAST BUT NOT LEAST - my tumblr subscriptions to Trek-related silliness have been TOTALLY AMAZING lately! They yield stuff like this (read the caption), this (and relatedly, this), and this.

AND IN CONCLUSION:


Happy Sunday, everyone! Get through your weeks okay!
merrily: Mac (Default)
Dudes! I am back, and I bring recommended reads of the fanfiction variety! I don't have a million of them this time, because I am trying to scale back the amount of time I spend on the internets, and also because I haven't tackled the Merlin Big Bang offerings yet. But there is still good stuff under the cuts!

Recs: Firefly/Ironman, Star Trek Reboot & Star Trek RPF )

I have non-Star Trek recommendations this week! Weird, huh?

Three things before the cut!

One, I was excited to discover that there's a Supernatural Kink Meme! (And unlike the Star Trek one, the 'kink' in the title still seems to fit the stories which are being posted. Ha. Let's see how long that lasts.) I am also pleased to see that they, too, are using Delicious to bookmark filled prompts, which makes it easy to find stuff fast.

Two, if you read nothing else this week, go read Jungle Kitty's Kirk and Spock Go Ice Fishing (or If My Aunt From Minnesota Wrote Fanfic). Star Trek TOS, and the funniest thing I have read all year. Seriously.

Three, since it doesn't fit in any of the categories below & I forgot to put it in with this week's Links set, Topless Robot posted a list of the 10 awesomest things Leonard Nimoy has done that aren't Star Trek. Nimoy, I heart you.

Recs: American Idol, Criminal Minds, DC-verse, Merlin, SG-1, Supernatural, Torchwood )

Recs: Star Trek: Reboot & Star Trek RPF )

Fandom, you were rocking this week! Good work!

Fiction recommendations a-comin'!
merrily: Mac (Default)
So, here's the thing - there is a lot of Star Trek fanfiction online right now! It is kind of overwhelming! Every night, when I double-check my delicious network bookmarks, there are almost a thousand new links.

It's like being at Starbucks and being overwhelmed with choices. It means I don't bookmark enough, because I am too busy reading everything and feeling like I am falling woefully behind.

So my recommendations are light on the ground this week, but this does not mean that there aren't five million new STXI fics to read. If you are feeling the opposite of what I am feeling -- that is, if you aren't getting enough -- go check the delicious feeds forthe Star Trek XI Kink Meme, and the Trek RPF Kink Meme. The mods for those lj comms have been using Delicious to bookmark the filled prompts, which is both smart and efficient... and contributing significantly to my sense of being overwhelmed. But in a good way! I am overwhelmed by awesome!
---

Anyway, I have decided to try something new with this week's fiction recommendations. I am grouping things by theme! because all of a sudden there's been this slew of kind of fantastic stories with het pairings where Bones is all about, um, taking care of the ladies, and I adore them all. And other unexpected themes have cropped up, too, in my reading of millions of stories.
---

First theme is Stories in Which Bones Likes The Ladies )
---

Second theme is things which are hilarious )
---

Third and last theme is sometimes I like some angst in my sandwich! )
--

Coming up: picspam. Because my google reader bookmarks are now five zillion "oooo, Chris Pine is pretty" pictures, and they need to go somewhere else.

The late-night, ate too many carbs at lunch and slept 'till 8PM edition! (On that note, may I suggest, if ever you find yourself at the Drake Hotel in Toronto for brunch on a Sunday, ordering the southern-fried chicken and waffles, with creme fraiche and sour cherries? Dear god in heaven, it was good. And coma-inducing.)

Outside the cut - my favourite new blog is Awful Library Books. You will like it!
