The Fusion Job by [archiveofourown.org profile] parcequelle. Leverage is SG-1! Eliot is Daniel Jackson (THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY, YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW), Parker is Teal'c, Hardison is Sam Carter! It's just so so so good, you guys!

Parker on love by [personal profile] james. *breathes* Oh, this fic, my heart! It's a gorgeous read on Parker and love and Eliot and Hardison and just perfect and lovely.

Big Hero 6 fic about Hiro, Tadashi, and Aunt Cass by [personal profile] retsuko. Oh!!!! THIS IS EXACTLY THE FIC I WANTED YOU GUYS! It is so amazing, so perfectly them and domestic and lovely and just everything I wanted in the world for this movie, SO MUCH. :D :D :D

[personal profile] jenna_thorn wrote a delightful Losers piece called spam folder, where Aisha doesn't kill Jensen, and is friends with (if I've caught my reference correctly), Natasha Romanov. :D :D :D :D The Losers and MCU, two great tastes that taste great forever.

Art, photos, icons, banners

Gorgeous snow photos from [personal profile] sarajayechan. I loooooooooooooooooove snow, so these were really awesome - like this one:

Five smiley icons, also from [personal profile] sarajayechan, mostly Avatar: the Last Airbender (and Korra), which is BRILLIANT! I need lots more smiles on my journal, so I am thrilled to get these.

A Groot Happy Holidays Banner! Oh, and a link to Dancing Groot, if any of you haven't (I don't know how, but I suppose it is possible) seen it. GROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

From my buddy [personal profile] curiouscorvid, her first chibi (SAM WINCHESTER, EEEE!) and How to Train Your Dragon/Supernatural fusion where Cas is a Night Fury and Dean is his rider. :D :D :D

A delightful fireworks over London banner from [personal profile] sjh2009 that is absolutely gorgeous!

Hee hee hee, a cute Father Time gif from [personal profile] twinsarein.

[personal profile] omens made me Baymax and Mochi art! :D :D :D It is awesome! And somehow she got a RL cosplay picture of Baymax and Mochi!

[personal profile] trobadora gave me a lovely Dean/Cas New Year's banner! :D :D :D Dean/Cas hugs are the best! I love all the hugs. :D :D :D
kate: Charlie from Supernatural grinning (SPN: Charlie profile happy)
I got art for [profile] spn_j2_xmas from [personal profile] omens!!!!!! OMG AMAZING!

It is so so so so good - Charlie, wheee, with just about every art technique known to man. It's Charlie/Hermione, and seriously, JUST BRILLIANT. It's so amazing you guys! It's on the AO3 so go on over and take a look and tell [personal profile] omens how amazing it is! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D
kate: chibi!Rodney kisses hurt!chibi!John (SGA: John/Rodney h/c chibi)
My [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa fic got posted! It is so cool! I am bad with naming this sort of thing; it's an AU where there are houses and people are dressed in uniforms and frilly dresses and there's all the formality all the time, and the whole story is from Cadman and Aiden's POV and yet sweetly McShep, just... so lovely. The world-building is fascinating, I will always be amazed at people who can do it in such a short space like that. Lovely! Won't you go read?

Caput, PG, McShep, Cadman and Aiden heavy.

So delightful!

(I also have a lot of feels about the Jason Manns Christmas with Friends album, as well as some weird thinky thoughts about character names, and I'm roughly a third of the way through my Wincestiel December talky meme post for [personal profile] omens, so more to come in the next few days.)
kate: NOM! Cupcake! (Food: om nom nom cupcake)
So we made limoncello - sort of. )


I've been to Six Flags Great America four or five times over the last couple months and the only thing I got was this lame SPN not-really-joke. )

Does this mean it's bigger on the inside? )

And tonight capped my whirlwind tour of Philadelphia awesome restaurants. Or maybe tomorrow will. )

And two things that have been sitting on my desktop forever, which I'm throwing out there in the world because I don't want to wait anymore.

Voice posts! )

I'm no longer drunk (sadfax) but I am tired, and I have to get up early tomorrow, so that's it for a sleepy Kate. Hope you enjoy!

[archiveofourown.org profile] Balder12 remixed my story Should've Known, which is a short, Supernatural season 9 episode cap about three people that might have noticed Sam was possessed and it is fricking BRILLIANT. The Crowley voice is amazing, and there's Kevin and Castiel POVs too, and it is just... wow. SO WOW. :D :D :D :D

There will likely be a long long post about work, but not now. I don't want to think about work right now, at all.

I do want to think about the house we just saw on sale - we weren't really looking for a house yet, but... well. I have a week off (because work thing I'm not talking about) and after our dentist appointments, I think we may look into buying a house. Wish us luck.

BUT! I made a thing! I am writing episode caps for all of the Supernatural season 9 episodes for [community profile] episodic_supernatural, and for 9.12 I wrote a short called:

miles to go before I sleep (490 words)
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: General Audiences

Relationships: Dean Winchester & Sam Winchester
Series: Part 11 of Supernatural Season 9 Tagathon
Summary: Sam's thoughts as they head for home.
Author's notes: How awkward that car ride home must have been. Thought I was going to write Dean's POV but apparently Sam had something to say.

Which, okay, I whip these off in just a few minutes, half hour tops for a little polishing, but this one... I really like this one. And then [personal profile] colls asked to podfic this, and NOW THERE IS A PODFIC!!! And the Sam voice is just perfect.

Title: miles to go before I sleep

kate: The Losers 2014 Ante Up Exchange (Losers: 2014 ante up exchange)
Just woke up (which sucks because I fell asleep after 3am yesterday) and in scrolling my dwircle with all my fic feeds, there's just... nothing I want right now. People are feeling hurt by the show so there is this plethora of fluffy, happy fic, and it is the exact opposite of what I want.

And I would work on my own not-fluffy fic, but I just got a new Macbook Air (yay!) and it has office 2011, but that won't recognize .docx files, which of course all my stories are because I am super lazy and often just leave the doc open for days before saving it, and then do so in a hurry. And of course my work computer encrypts all my damn flash drives, so I have to take the flash drive to another computer, unencrypt and download all my stories, then wipe the flash drive, then re-upload, and then transfer the stuff to the mac. I fell asleep somewhere during wiping the flash drive. And now I'm awake but my wife is asleep and I am afraid to do this stuff without her looking over my shoulder because the chance that I will do something stupid and lose half a million words of fic is terrifying.

In other news, [community profile] ante_up_losers is live, and there's so much good stuff!!! These were most definitely the right fic, art, and vids! :D :D :D

I received the wonderful Negotiable Affection (give me something to hold onto) which is hooker!Cougar and john!Jensen's first kinky appointment. Includes bondage and marking (my favorite!). It's wonderful and perfect, moreso than I can say for reasons which will have to wait until after the reveal, and I love love love it!

Also excellent: Your Heart Beating Next to Mine, Jensen/Cougar/Pooch/Jolene, a soulbond fic that has a very different take on it than I've ever seen, and which I enjoy immensely. I'd love another 100,000 words of this fic to roll around in, because I love the way xie portrays all the characters and Jensen's general hesitancy. Warning: mentions of (and descriptions of resultant trauma) of abuse (mostly emotional, I think) from a previous boyfriend.

SG1/Losers crossover that has the most amazing Aisha (comics canon but set in movie timeline, I think?): Get Your Hate On, which captures Aisha and Jensen and disbelief at the Stargate program beautifully. Also, wonderful appearance by Rodney McKay.

Save the Last Dance for Me is a fucking CLAY/ROQUE VID! And it is wonderful and perfect, and the song choice and clips are amaaaaaaaaaazing, OMG you need this in your life, I am serious!

Jacinta and Carlita Kick Ass, art of genderbent Jensen and Cougar. I don't know what to say - it's just... right. And I really like Cougar's boobs.

More reviews later! Have to see if I can do something with my docs.

The best thing ever, yay! YAY YAY YAY!!!!

[livejournal.com profile] sylvia_locust made a podfic of Take the Long Way Home, my piece from [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas. I am so proud of that story, you have no idea. And now there this podfic, which is so brilliant!

Podfic of Take the Long Way Home.

And my comment on the reading (and cover) because it's amazing:

Holy cow! That cover is amazing - exactly what I was picturing!

This is brilliant. I love your reading so so much, so many things, a sort of forthrightness to Dean's internal narration which is exactly how I hear him in my head, and then his actual dialogue is perfect - exactly like he sounds in the show.

Also, my very, very, very favorite thing is the way you read "Sam" and "Sammy" - infinite variations but always so full of all kinds of emotion, just like Dean.
kate: Dean smiling (SPN: Dean smiley)
First things first: my [community profile] fandom_stocking is live with so many lovely presents! I got a bunch of graphics that are just beautiful, wonderful holiday greetings, mince pie recipes, a snickerdoodle recipe, Wylie Dufresne and Eric Ripert talking food, a Dorian and Kennex wallpaper, Another Day, Another Shitstorm (a SG-1/Losers fusion), a Christmas-y Sleepy Hollow fic with Abbie and Ichabod, Dorian and Kennex icons, an Oliver/Felicity/Diggle puppy pile fic, Kevin and Dean icons, and Charlie/Jo art!!!

Whew. That was simply amazing! So much good stuff packed into such a tiny space. Seriously, that is a stocking stuffed full of all my favorite things. I feel so blessed.

I'm officially behind on everything. I still have three more posts to put up on [community profile] solstice_calendar, I have to put up reminder posts for [community profile] ante_up_losers and [community profile] episodic_supernatural, I have four things to write/make for [community profile] episodic_supernatural, and I'm a week behind for [community profile] snowflake_challenge. And I've got a bunch of work to do, too. Oh, and there's the December talking meme thing which I am also ridiculously behind on. Oh, and reading my dwircle. Y'all have been really active, which is brilliant, but means that when I get behind, I get really behind.

On the up side, I feel relatively okay. Not 100%, not yet, but mostly okay. I have a gig - in Texas - starting next week. (A week on the bench was nice - especially because of the plague - but really, one week is enough.) It sounds like it'll be a) easy b) right up my alley and c) short. All excellent things. I've also finished my Dean/Cas xmas fic and I don't hate it! Of course, I wrote four times as many words as actually ended up on the page, but hey. At least I don't hate it.

So that's the state of me (well, that and the fact that my sleep schedule is so completely fucked - going to bed at 4am and getting up around 2pm, yeah, that's not a great sleep schedule). I hope things are excellent where you are, and I'll keep trying to catch up. I think I need to put up a links post because just in the first 100 posts of my flist there are excellent things like "What did we put up our rectums last year?" and a list of film recs about non-white queer characters. But that will be later today. Along with catch-up on a few things, I hope.
kate: Aang :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD (AtLA: Aang grinning)
I just got my [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_xmas gift, and it is DEAN AND COUGAR! :D :D :D :D

It's a ficlet PLUS ART, OMG, and she has captured the pair of them so well, both in words and in the art. It's sad-ish (no more than the show or the comic, maybe less than the comic? Maybe not) but it's very them and it's a lovely, lovely piece. Please go take a look and tell hir how great a job xie did!

A Hunter And A Sniper Walk Into A Bar.

Best. Idea. EVER.
kate: Reid is the prettiest thing (CM: Reid realllllly pretty)
From [personal profile] libitina, a really great read, and an awesome article I have things to say about (because the title applies to me): Deeply Embarrassed White People Talk Awkwardly About Race. My energy is too low to produce volumes about this right now, but the article really speaks for itself and is worth a read. I'm sure beware the comments applies, though I didn't actually read them.

NAWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, Reid and Morgan (well, okay, MGG and Shemar Moore) armwrestle! :D )

[community profile] ante_up_losers is live! There are 20 items in the Exchange and 6 items in the Scramble! I hope to be able to put some more things in the scramble over the next few days, but I was sort of writing my story to the very last second before reveals. I know, totally not like me at all. *koff* Run over and take a look - so much good stuff, including icons, graphics, fanmixes, poetry, art, podfic, and of course fic!

Speaking of, I got the most gorgeous fic in the universe in the exchange, Persephone is having sex in hell, gorgeous, dark, and perfect Aisha/Jolene - so so so beautiful, I can't even, it's like someone took all my favorite things out of my brain and made it into the perfect story for me. I can't lie, I know my author, not just because I made the assignments, but because I betaed the story, and man. Re-reading it now is just the most wonderful sweetness. I love love love it. Content notes for those who need might need or want them. )

And I got art in the scramble, too, amazing, gorgeous WERECAT ART. Cool Cats. :D :D :D :D :D Cat is based on [personal profile] storm_petrel's the first eight don't count (one of my favorite werecat stories bar none) and then there's were-Cougar, IN A HAT. How much do I love these pieces? THIS MUCH. OMG, these hit every one of my buttons and then a few I didn't know I had.

I was randomly spoiled for the end of House by a post on an entirely different topic. It was distressing, actually. I don't know that I'll ever finish watching House (I can't even remember when I stopped, season seven, maybe?), but I didn't know what happened and now I do and it was a shock to my system and I'm feeling a little strange and a bit sad.

I think that's the end of my list of random things. I am betaing fic for a good friend that hasn't written in a while and it's so pleasing to see them write, I can't even tell you. So I'm off to do that, and I'll be back tomorrow to catch up on things, now that my Ante Up obligations are done and I have some breathing room.

ETA: Nope, not the end. Just talking to [personal profile] soleta and mentioning that I am close to putting up my 200th fic on the AO3, and I'm pretty sure it's going to end up being Supernatural dubcon Sam/Dean/Castiel. That or fic about Sam losing his viriginity. And she groaned and said "You should write a special fic for your 200th fic," and I said, "Well, I could always finish the Cougar hooker!fic," and she said, "Yes, fine, good. As long as it's not Supernatural."
kate: Sam has the most ridiculous hair (SPN: Sam haaaaaaaaaaaair)
So, many many years ago, I wrote a Supernatural ficlet when I had only seen a single season. I was prompted with "Radio" and well, of course I wrote Sam singing along to pop music while Dean was sleeping. So, imagine my surprise when rabidly watching all the following seasons, that Sam and Dean do actually sing in the car, and also Sam listens to non-hair metal music. I gloated gleefully in each of those moments.

Right now I am making my posts for the night and then I'm going to settle in with one episode of SPN - 6.15, The French Mistake, which I hear is amazing. I saw about 2.3698 seconds of it in the previews of the last ep and decided to save it for tonight (as it was after midnight last night and I was already going on 36 hours without sleep). Also, a fic bunny with teeth the size of dracula tore into me, so I'm expecting to finish the ep, turn off the iPad, and write my third SPN fic ever.

Oh, right. I wrote my second SPN fic as a SPN/Losers crossover for [profile] elliemuraski's [community profile] fandom_stocking. Femslash, and I'm really rather proud of it. I like the other two things I wrote too (and the Arrow/The Voice not!fic I ruminated on for [personal profile] celli), so here's links to those.

Details on two Losers stories and one Losers/SPN crossover story under here. )

And now I get to gush about the AMAZING presents I got.

I got several lovely graphics for good wishes and IOUs (man people are clever!) as well as just general happiness and recs (multifandom vids and Leverage OT3) and a link to Steve/Tony/Pepper at the AO3 and then...

I got a gorgeous podfic cover for Fill All My Bones with Aches by [personal profile] somehowunbroken, a lovely piece that really captures the mood of that fic and is so so so perfect.

I have no idea how I got so lucky, but I got this amazing Clint&Natasha buddy art from [personal profile] astridv - look at that! It's amazing! Just another day at the office, hahaha, it's so perfect!

Then there's this amazing Cougar/Jensen artwork by the lovely [personal profile] tarlanx, with Cougar's gun and the coloring and the brushstrokes and gaaaaaaah! It's a shared gift with [personal profile] amaresu, and I'm pretty sure we're both pretty much floored.

IDRIS ELBA GIFS. From [profile] maharet83. I mean, seriously. SERIOUSLY. That man is more good looking than any two hundred people. And with the licking his lips. These are amazing, and perfect, and I absolutely did *not* drool on my keyboard, nosiree.

This lovely Hardison/Lucille fic, Frost, by [personal profile] jenna_thorn, is just such a lovely and sweet and perfect depiction of Hardison and his van, with a lovely Eliot thrown in for good measure.

[personal profile] merryghoul wrote a delightful little Leverage/Top Chef crossover ficlet that stars Tara and Sophie! Top Chef Quickfire. This is the most perfect quickfire in all of history, because they have a history and it all comes out in two teenie weenie amazing ficlets.

And if that wasn't amazing enough, [personal profile] anonymous_sibyl made me JESSICA SORROW FIC. I had to scrape my chin off the floor. And it's perfectly voiced - it comes right out of the Nightside, and the ending (Suzie) will make your heart clench. The Teddy Bears' Graveyard. Gorgeous.

Oh, but that's not all! [personal profile] moonlettuce wrote me an amazing Phil/Clint five things fic! It's heartwrenching and heartwarming and just amazing, and man, I am just over the moon, what can I say. A Laundry List of Trouble, awesome.

As if the Idris gifs weren't enough, the lovely [profile] maharet83 made me eight gooooooooooooooooorgeous Leverage icons that I cannot tell you how much I love. SO MUCH. I would've used one for this post, but...

[personal profile] clavally made me five Supernatural icons starring Castiel and Sam's hair. I can't even... I just. *cries*

And on that note, I've done all the work, read the dwircle, put my Fandom Snowflake Day 9 on hold, and am going to settle in with my one ep of SPN tonight. There may or may not (likely not) be fic tomorrow.

ETA: And that was the biggest build-up to nothing. It won't play on the iPad. I can get it to play on my computer, but there's no sound. Apparently someone doesn't want me to watch this.

*freaks out*

I will have a real freak out post about work sometime soon (OMG FEDERAL REPORTING WHAT THE HELL) but right now I am freaking out because [archiveofourown.org profile] NewYorkReload wrote me an AMAZING birthday fic! \o/\o/\o/\o/ I WIN THE ENTIRE INTERNETS!

The Atlantis Herald (6421 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] NewYorkReload
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Relationships: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Characters: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex, Miko Kusanagi, Evan Lorne, Laura Cadman, Radek Zelenka, Chaya Sar, Jake Jensen
Summary: There are twenty-four hours in the day, and for the life of her, Teyla can't remember how she used to spend those hours before accepting a job at The Atlantis Herald. OR: How Teyla learned to stop worrying and love her newspaper.

This is a... side universe, of sorts, of the Losers office AU that is totally mine, all mine, too (and there's a little reference to that fic which is simply brilliant). :D :D :D :D

Incredible Teyla POV and voice, awesome Cadman, Miko, Ronon, Radek, Lorne and a cast of thousands, perfectly bantery/pranky McShep and nice nods to canon. I have no idea how I got her into SGA, but anyone who's still reading, you are in for a treat. She's amazing. Is it too late to claim my recruitment toaster?

I did things!

kate: Kate Winslet is wryly amused (Default)
I have many thoughts and feels and no time. I'm settling in at the new job, so I'm able to do some things (recording podfic is nice and easy and doesn't stress me out), but I haven't got the energy to do a lot of the things that I will hopefully get back into as the summer wears on.

My podfic bigbang is live! Strangers on a Six Train (story link) by [livejournal.com profile] eye_queue and art for the podfic by [personal profile] cybel. Clicking on the art will take you to the podfic link at the AO3 where you can download/stream. If you're having trouble there, here is the podfic big bang link for downloading (there is a M4B there too - the AO3 only has an mp3).

Also, as a way to get [personal profile] lady_krysis into recording podfic (it totally worked, HA!), I read my own story, Fill All Thy Bones with Aches (podfic is here).

Lastly, because [personal profile] chkc is awesome, xie made art for a cover of my reading of [livejournal.com profile] lavvyan's Issue of Cuddling (story link - click on the art to go to the podfic). Click here to comment on chkc's art.

kate: Orli looking thoughtful with the word Indesctructible in text (RP: Orli indestructible)
Yeah, you heard me. I did something stupid with my contacts and I lacerated my eyeball, which caused me to be unable to play the concert on Sunday and miss two days of work so far this week. I can finally keep both eyes open for several minutes at a time, and wear glasses (that made me tear up something fierce until today). I may or may not go to work tomorrow, but I figure I'll be back up to scratch by Thursday and right as rain early next week.

In the meantime! Someone remixed my Last Minute Shopping (or Trials and Tribulations of the Pegasus Galaxy Mall)!

Bearing Gifts (1281 words) by [archiveofourown.org profile] pollitt
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Rodney McKay/John Sheppard
Characters: Teyla Emmagan, Ronon Dex, John Sheppard, Rodney McKay
Summary: There is an Athosian adage that, translated roughly into Earthen speech, says that the brighter a truth, the more in the dark those who hold it are. Teyla had never been a huge believer in the statement, perhaps because she has always cast an even eye on nearly everything. But in the case of her teammates... she’s never seen a truer example.

SO AWESOME!!!! Even better when read to you by someone.

And now my eye hurts again so I'm going to lay on the couch and listen to Happy Feet 2. <3
kate: Jensen giving a triumphant fistpump (it's not, it's him singing Journey, but it looks like it!) (Losers: Jensen <i>YES!</i>)
Okay, so, there is a MASSIVE rec coming for [profile] physicsandballistics's 85k Losers story (it will be pages long - I am NOT EVEN KIDDING), but until then, I got four of the most lovely surprises today.

1. [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa drew Cougar as Uhura from my story Crossed Wires.

Look at this shit! Click on the thumb to go to the full picture on [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa's journal and leave her wonderful comments!

2. When I got home, I had a lovely conversation with [profile] physicsandballistics which lead to me telling her never to throw away stories, OMG, and to prove me wrong, she sent me a story she would have thrown away. A LOSERS OFFICE AU. Which I promptly betaed and made her post. A Cry for Help, it's totally my fault, go and read! It's a delightful just-under-3k romp. COUGAR IS A LAWYER. 'Nuff said.

3. Then, [archiveofourown.org profile] aislinn_m (who is one of the people I flailed to about #1) COLORED [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa'S ART.

Look at this shit! Click on the thumb to go to the full picture at the AO3 and leave her wonderful comments!

4. Then, [livejournal.com profile] zoronoa's muse got all excited, and XIE posted a coloration of hir art! No thumb here, because it's on the same post as the sketch - go there to see both and tell hir how amazing xie is!

kate: Roque guns blazing (Losers: Roque!)
OMG FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIC! There are 49 new Losers stories today!

The Ante Up Losers: Fic Exchange, 21 stories

The Ante Up Losers: Fic Scramble, 28 stories

And holy crap, guys, I got five stories! I am blushing over here, because the embarrassment of riches, seriously. THEY'RE ALL AMAZING, TOO, HOOOOOOOW DO PEOPLE DO THAT?!!

My exchange story: Family Means No One Gets Left Behind (Except When It Doesn't), which is the story of my heart - Roque, post-movie, watching the team's backs, saving Jensen's life (twice!) and the beginning of what is undoubtedly a rough reconciliation. Not to mention competent!soldier!Jensen, which is a rare occurrence and much loved.


A Boy and His Dragon, a short Losers/Temeraire fusion that is amazing (everything is better with dragons!) not just because of the fusion, but because it's modern-day Temeraire world, which is brilliant.

Take You for a Ride Down the Mind Way, Baby (5 Fantasies of Jake Jensen), a gorgeous piece about five fantasies of one Jake Jensen. The Jensen voice in this is awesome, the way the story is woven together is perfect (I admit my preference for five things stories that are woven into a cohesive story is a button that's mashed hard here), and the ending exactly what I want, in every fic, ever. Also, the individual fantasies? ARE HOT AS HELL AND STILL GIVE AMAZING TEAM.

Stand Reborn (Before Us All), a Losers/Hellraiser (movies and the new comics) crossover. This story, you guys, omg it is so gorgeous, the language so evocative (and dark! which I love, but if you have sensitivities or triggers, please note the warnings), so terrifyingly beautiful... I don't know what else to say. If you like dark, or horror, please read, this is an absolutely magnificent piece. I cannot even come up with more praise, I'd just be chucking superlatives at you. Just, if you can, go. Breathe it in.

Four Coffee Morning, a missing (Cougar/Jensen) scene from the movie. It is pitch-perfect movie Cougar/Jensen, exactly as I see it in my head - slightly angsty but mostly not (despite the angst? I have no idea how the author does that), Jensen being both perfectly Jensen and yet smart and determined in a way sometimes gets lost in fic, I think (my own definitely included here). This is one of those scenes that my slash goggles just assumed was behind the scenes of the movie, and someone wrote it out, exactly like in my daydreams, and handed it to me on a platter. Perfect, gorgeous, beautiful Cougar/Jensen.

ETA: And another, OMG!

A Brief Conversation About Forgiveness, Roque and Jolene, post-movie, post-Max, a conversation that tells so much in just 242 words. Brilliant.

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge
Day 7: In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts. Drop a link to your wish-list in this post. Maybe someone will grant a wish. Maybe you will grant a wish. If any wishes are granted, we'd love it if you link them to this post.

It's really tough for me to ask for things. Like, it embarrasses me and it's one of the reasons I never do any of those spiffy writing memes (I'm also terribly certain that no one gives a crap about what I write and is less than interested in doing anything with it - which is why I was so deeply pleased and thrilled with those requests to link works the other day). But I'm doing this challenge, and so, here are things I am embarrassed to admit I would really, really like.

1. I would absolutely love transformative works of my transformative works (including art, podfic, fanmixes, translations, craftworks, remixing, continuing, or changing the story itself, anything) for any of my stories, any of them, seriously. But the one thing I want more than anything in the world, is art for Kinky Boots: the image of John, naked except for thigh high leather boots. That is the only time I've written a story from a single image I saw in my head, and to have that image be out in the world would be amazing.

ETA: OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG LOOK WHAT [profile] danceswuithgary made me!!!!! <333333

Cover for Kinky Boots! )

2. I would like some very specific Criminal Minds recs. This fandom is tough for me, because so far what I've read just doesn't work for me. For one, I love the team as a team, and I don't ship them. I like them as friends and family, and I love all their partners (Lila or Austin for Reid, Sarah for Gideon, Kevin for Garcia, Will for JJ, Haley for Hotch), so I'm not interested in 'ship fic for this fandom (which is probably why I haven't really been in this fandom so much). Now, that said, I don't mind 'ship fic, and I have read lots of it (Garcia/Morgan, Morgan/Reid, Prentiss/Reid, JJ/Reid, Garcia/Morgan/Reid, okay, I really like Reid, so what?!), but my problem with it is not with it being 'ship fic but with the fact that it doesn't feel like the show, or the characters feel OOC to me. On the other hand, I'm not really interested in case fic for this fandom; the show itself scratches that itch just fine. What I am looking for is this: character-based fic that specializes in backstory or fills in bits and pieces of their characterizations that we see in canon. I love CM because it really only hints at their characterization (for the most part). I would have thought that the fandom would have run with those savory little bits of information, but either I'm looking in the wrong places or it just doesn't exist. Help a girl out here? I will read 'ship fic, if it specializes in characterization or backstory, and the characters I love best are Reid, Garcia, Morgan, Prentiss, JJ, Gideon, and Hotch (pretty much in that order). Elle and Rossi, no thanks. They're just not my cup of tea (I don't mind if they're in the mix, they're part of the team, obviously, but I'd rather they not be the focus of the fic). I know those are really specific requirements, so anything you can give me would be awesome.

2a. Okay, I lied. There is ONE 'ship fic I am desperately seeking. I want the fic where Reid and Hotch get it on in the car after interviewing Chester Hardwick in Damaged. Hotch taking off his jacket and being all "OH YEAH? I'M GONNA MESS YOU UP BIG MAN" and then Reid saving the day with a 13-minute ramble? Something about Hotch taking off his tie set me off, and I want the porn, man, with a simple "that was so hot" sort of explanation. I don't even care if its plausible, because to me it's plausible based solely on Hotch ripping his tie off and Reid stepping in to save his ass. <333 Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeid.

3. Icons! :D :D :D I love icons, and I suck at them so bad. :( I would love icons for the following fandoms/characters or interests: Losers/Cougar, Cougar, Cougar, Jensen, Pooch, Aisha, Roque; CM/Reid, Morgan, Garcia, Prentiss; Fringe/Olivia, Astrid, Walter, Broyles; How to Train Your Dragon/Toothless (or Toothless and Hiccup), Astrid, Ruffnut and Tuffnut; Leverage/Eliot, Parker, Hardison; ballet; classical music; Kate Winslet; Vin Diesel; Wylie Dufresne; fooooooooooood.

ETA: OMG SO MANY AWESOME ICONS! Check the comments for Losers, Leverage, Fringe, and Criminal Minds! :D :D :D

Happy things!
