Four things!

First, [profile] mamoru22 made this Merlin-As-Princess-Bride vid ( found via [personal profile] mklutz, whose links & recs today were, as usual, awesome):

Merlin - The Princess Bride from mamoru22 on Vimeo.

Second, although it's already been recc'd up down and all around town, the Star Trek reboot fic So Wise We Grow by [profile] captanddeaster is wonderful. Spock receives word that his son survived the destruction of Vulcan. Spock knows he doesn't have a son. [PLEASE NOTE: This isn't for you if discussion (oblique, but certainly text, not subtext) of Kirk's past experience as an abused child will make you uncomfortable or unwell.] (Kirk/Spock, NC-17, kid!fic, novel-length)

Third, Sue ([personal profile] 30toseoul) has been posting excellent compilations of her favourite [community profile] fandomsecrets contributions. Her journal is flocked, but she friends back most everyone. You can see her fandomsecrets compilations here: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven.

And lastly -- in case you missed the fandom wank of the week -- there was, briefly, an lj comm devoted to kink-free fic: [profile] kinkfreezone. explanations, recs, kink-free-bingo )

IN SUM: being in fandom is never ever boring. Also, Merlin is pretty and one of the scriptwriters needs to make him say "as you wish" SOON.

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!

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

This reclist, in sum:
  • My favourite new SGA author: [ profile] sabinelagrande. Click on the SGA recs link for her freaking awesome Porn Battle entries

  • My favourite new non-fandom author: Penelope Trunk, who writes about being an artist. Links to some of her posts in the "links: misc" section

  • Office/other show vid mashups equal awesomeness

  • Possibly I should upgrade this lj account, so I can get the friends-of-friends lists. Since I'm reading the poor man's version of it, anyway.

  • Every day I finish reading my RSS feed and my flist and I get this "is that all there is?" moment of disappointment. And then on Sunday I aggregate everything and am amazed at how much time I've spent on the webs. "All there is" is A LOT. No complaints, fandom!

    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. >:-(
