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)

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

[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)

[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!

This isn't very long, so I'm not going to cut.

Fandom Resources
Some awesome person has put together a blog of all the songs used on the show Glee, including audio files to listen to online and links to buy the songs on iTunes, if you so desire. I admit to playing Matthew Morrison's cover of "The Thong Song," um, let's just say "more than once".

Recs: Star Trek & Star Trek RPS
So, first you need to go watch Fist/Kiss, by [profile] bendtothesun (an unbelievably hot Spock/Kirk vid, about how they, um, like to hit each other). Then, when you've got the visual of bruised, bloody and yet ungodly smokin' hot Chris Pine firmly in your mind's eye, you need to go read [personal profile] waketosleep's story, A Kiss With A Fist Is Better Than None, inspired by the vid. (I'd rate the vid R, and the story NC-17.)

You can thank me later. :-)

I admit, the premise of [personal profile] the_deep_magic's story, You Had Me At Pon Farr, where Zach (that's right, I said Zach) gets Pon Farr, is slightly ridiculous. But seriously, who cares. Zach Quinto, hit with Pon Farr, in need of sexytimes assistance by Chris Pine -- is there anything about that description that seems like you wouldn't read through anyway? (Pine/Quinto, NC-17, PWP)

Recs: Merlin RPS
[profile] franticsga's Lucky Knickers Will Get You Everywhere features an inexperienced and fixated Bradley James who can't stop thinking about Colin and what Colin could be doing with his mouth. I'm pretty sure that's the best formula for Merlin RPS ever invented.

[personal profile] onelittlesleep did fandom a favour and compiled all of Bradley James' dorky moments into one vid. Glorious.

Recs: Stargate (SGA & SG1)
[personal profile] eponymous_rose put together a giant SG-1 picspam of hugs, done season by season. I notice that many of the captions center on the theme "Daniel Jackson has had a bad day". It's true, that's a major Stargate motif - and it's probably there as fanservice, because hey, wouldn't you hug Michael Shanks every time he looked slightly woebegone?

[personal profile] princessofgeeks had a fandom hivemind moment and wrote the absolutely delicious harlequinesque fic You Never Get A Second Chance To Make A First Impression, in which Daniel is a wealthy relic-hunter Indiana Jones kinda guy (I think?) and Jack's undercover as his pool guy (Jack/Daniel, NC-17, favourite). I say "fandom hivemind moment" because she was inspired by [profile] kuonjil4's Satisfaction Guarantee, and didn't realize it 'till later. I think they're great together - [personal profile] princessofgeeks story acts as a natural (sexy) sequel, and I love the trope. Read [profile] kuonjil4's story first!

[personal profile] pir8fancier wrote a SGA epic the way that SGA epics used to be written, back when the fandom was new and shiny and we were all in love. Her Damned If You Do And Damned If You Don't is an absolutely fabulous post-canon story, where Atlantis is in San Fran bay, and Rodney's on vacation with Jennifer... when he realizes that something is extremely wrong. Link to part one of four - story is complete. (McKay/Sheppard, NC-17, action!)

So, Jason Momoa. You know him, right? Here are some pictures, if you've forgotten. Now, with that in mind, go read this. It's a scene from the novel "A Game Of Thrones," which is going to be made into a miniseries. Jason's been cast as Khal Drogo, which means he's going to be doing this scene. Naked. God bless the casting director responsible.

Time for some Mythbusters!

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.

I've been reading through [ profile] synecdochic's backlist, and dear god. If only I didn't have to do stuff like work. Or sleep.

Happy Easter, everyone! If Easter's not something you celebrate, happy beautiful April morning!

Thanks to [ profile] crack_van, I found Han Solo And The Princess by Lasos -- a story about five times Han asked Leia to marry him. Leia's voice is wonderful here, spot-on and achy. (Star Wars)

In SG-1 land, [ profile] synecdochic wrote Calibrate, where Daniel gives Jack a backrub. It's not even a sexytimes backrub, but it still made me a little... guh.

Recs: SGA )

And now I'm gonna clean out my crawl space. Which is exactly what I should be doing this beautiful spring day, I know.

I'm pretending it's still Sunday, and that my weekend didn't disappear into a haze of band practice and studying and generally not getting things done.

Fine, it's Monday. >:-(

(Standard PSA: In case you're new to my lj, I make these posts every Sunday okay, nearly every Sunday. They're all tagged, for your convenience.)

[ profile] synedochic has written a fantastic SG1 story called The Only Winning Move, in which all of Cheyenne Mountain participates in a yearly game that's a simulation of a base emergency.

It is very fun. Teal'c eats pie. Sam writes statistics software to see which department loses most frequently. There is surreptitious betting. Jack is Bad Ass. (He'd so win at laser tag, too.)

Go read!
