Update. In which you learn emotional crap about me. )

There are a number of great fics floating about LJ today. I am excited about these:

Visitation by Graculous at All Daniel Fic. S9 long distance Jack/Daniel. Sometimes I seriously want to get clingy about S9 J/D authors or make them sign binding contracts that they won't leeeeeaave me!

I'm beginning to think there should be a whole new slash category in my world for J/D slash that recognizes other team members. A beautiful example of this is [livejournal.com profile] jenlev's newly released Just Another Quiet Night At Home at [livejournal.com profile] fic4martha. ETA: this is some of the most evocative, beautiful, lyrical writing I've seen. The presence of the team is, omg so amazingly touching and the description of Sam and Teal'c sitting by the fire, done in, what, two sentences, is absolutely breathtaking. This is gorgeous, gorgeous work.

Some marvelous looking Teal'c fics:

[livejournal.com profile] thassalia wrote Teal'c/Vala for [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong, and it's PWP and I mean... who'd have thunk? snippet. *guh* I kinda love Vala's interaction with anyone because it never, never has to be emotional and it is almost always snarky and I am growing to ADORE the fanon development that she talks during sex. I don't always buy people talking during sex. But Vala? Oh gracious yes she does.

Teal'c/Sam friendship, which I'm a big fan of. If not for Cameron and Teal'c's obvious UST, I would be a bigger proponant of Sam/Teal'c romantically. Anyway. Friends is good. Tag for S6 'The Changeling'. Another Sleepless Night by [livejournal.com profile] vl_majel. Lovely Sam helping Teal'c adapt to needing to sleep.

By Her Light by [livejournal.com profile] lovellama. I am totally subscribing to [livejournal.com profile] tealc_fic now. I didn't even know it was there! Lookit the TREASURES! *realizes that Teal'c needs his own rec list here*

Also, [livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast = Jennghis Khan wrote some amazing Sam/Daniel smut. I'm not usually really into the het smut, but I might have to be more openminded about that in the future, because this was some pretty damn good smut. And marvelous Aliens Made Them Do It, too. The characters remained true throughout! Imagine! The Rites of Hedona. LOL. You'd think Daniel would've suspected when he learned the name of the place was Hedona.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] resonant8 has a kewl discussion going on in her journal prompted by her rules for How to Write a Sex Scene. So far are 1. Make Me Yearn, 2. Pick a Zing and Stick to It, and 3. Make the Sex Fit the Characters, and Not the Other Way 'Round. Seriously cool discussion with a charmingly slashy viewpoint.

And finally, I am totally crushing on Jake Gyllenhaal lately. His responses to Brokeback Mountain questions and interviews is gracious and open minded and not TMI and well spoken. Plus, he's hot. And, I say this before even seeing the movie and despite the fairly ridiculous Day After Tomorrow. I'm *guh* for that boy. That is all.

First, do no harm. )

Anyway.

Seekrit message to [livejournal.com profile] taselby: ya sure you betcha, and will send email soon, but are you sure I'm qualified? Measly student of subject is not tremendously impressive on paper. Unless you're going to wait until after January to turn it in, in which case I will be graduated and much more intimidating a specialist.

Not so seekrit message to [livejournal.com profile] wraith816 and [livejournal.com profile] switch842. I love my vid. Can't believe y'all made such a warm hug of a hurt/comfort J/D vid. That's comfort food, right there. {{{{{hugs}}}}} For everyone else, to d/l this cheer up your day vid, go here.

News from the Janet front: lovely Janet POV of her time with Daniel during Meridian. Warning for clinical detail walking the 'possibly squicky' line, but it didn't bother me. Not that, you know, it was likely to. Friendship, S5, PG-13 for medical stuff. Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness by kaz.

More Cameron/Teal'c goodness, which is, btw, my official S9+ OTP. [livejournal.com profile] janedavitt (*face/palm* Sorry, Jane! Sorry!) was goaded into this pairing by a set of suspicious characters. Of no relevance whatsoever is the fact that she wrote [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong and I a drabble which is snicker-worthy. Hee! Try, Try Again.

Loooooooove for [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl who jumps in the new fandom with both feet: Gesture. Incidently, she also wrote just an amazing Inara & Jayne friendship moment that is set post-BDM. Unbalanced.

My Life As Soap Opera, in notes. )

Meta note: I've had a very up and down few weeks, not helped by Thanksgiving which was both. A really cool discussion is going on at [livejournal.com profile] kormantic's journal about wonderful and true romantic moments. I love people who get me thinking about beauty and life and it's particularly fitting to be grateful for those things on Thanksgiving.

Fanfic notes (probably why you all read this journal anyway *g*):

[livejournal.com profile] janedavitt finished Leaving Time! (Woo hoo! Go girl! Links are *points* back there, somewhere, in the WIP post. Maybe 2 posts back? Not far. You can walk. Just avoid mean dogs... and a more coherent review coming soon.) ETA: so now it's really late and I'm still awake because of this fic and it's really deft how she's woven threads of communication and resistance and miscommunication and love and anger and pain and blending into a piece that starts in one place and ends in a completely different setting. Don't be scared of this fic because of its darkness. It is haunting, and it starts creepy, but more than that it's thought provoking and even the sex has meaning in all of it. Incredible.

and then promptly presents us with some very much thank you PWP spanking fic. LOL. What a gal. I love that woman. Sticky Sweet.

[livejournal.com profile] agentotter = Otter, wrote May You Last Forever, a gen or pre-slash fic that is ow and beautiful and ow and holy crap and character! and Daniel is so hurt, so many many times over hurt, and ow. It is such beautiful lyricism.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] ana_grrl, formerly of mostly Firefly slash work, takes us to Cameron/Teal'c. Pre-slash, if we need to clarify, but if anyone can't see the sort of electric intimidation with Teal'c I'll make you a watch. It must be written, my people! Teal'c needs looooooooove. Anyway, it's just a short little ficlet, but seriously, there is so much going ON between those guys. She nailed Cameron, too, though unfortunately, not literally. Just a Guy, Saying Hi.

Of course, if my LJ were emailing me my comments I would have known that [livejournal.com profile] rydra_wong sent a heads up on this, but luckily, I have ana on my flist. *is happy*

That was rude. )

So in conclusion, dear Fates, you are forgiven by reason of purple velvet.

And, because I need the distraction, the rather unusual interactive MEME (ganked from [livejournal.com profile] greensilver)

So, here's how it works. Name a character from one of the fandoms listed below. I will produce no fewer than 100 words on why I love that character.

BUT! There's a price. You must produce no fewer than 100 words on why you love another character in the same fandom. It doesn't need to be someone I'm all that familiar with, or even know at all. It just has to be love. Obvious choices are fine, and if someone else has either posted on that character or asked me to, go again and love on them anyway.


Fandoms for the picking:

Stargate SG-1
Firefly
QAF (American version), but only the major characters because I'm only partway through S1.
Star Trek: TNG
Alias

Novels:

Harry Potter (Rowling)
Pride & Prejudice (Austen)
Tuesday Next (Fforde)
LOTR (Tolkien)

Really, really good things that happened this past week:

1. the Boy. I think I could be in serious danger of falling in love with him.

2. Rob Thomas and his need for writing songs containing the lyrics "Just let me hold you/while you're falling apart", and on a similar note, Coldplay's recent theme of fixing whatever is wrong in your soul is also speaking to me.

3. Icons (see the pretty from [livejournal.com profile] paian? Thank you, paian), stories, e-cards, general loveliness from online friends. You do realize that I love you, right? And I am so grateful for your presence and your stories and your witness in general to the importance of letting things touch you and recognising how vibrant life still is.

4. M*A*S*H*, and Saving Private Ryan, for nice perspective. Perspective is an interesting thing, isn't it? Makes you wonder how people get through wars. The idea of a soldier-doctor is a really interesting paradox. How the hell do you do that? A good reason to continue to work for peace, IMO, as death alone is heartbreaking to me; I don't know if I could survive watching so many die needlessly and young and return even a shadow of the person I am now. And that's if I were perfectly whole and safe the entire time.

5. Good friends, good movies and really good spicy margaritas. I may need that recipe. Definitely love that friend.

6. Pets, [livejournal.com profile] jenlevs stories of her beautiful horse that reminds me of my floppy marvelous dingbat puppies. And unconditional love. And fics where people live happily ever after, or at least until they tumble into bed a few more times. And satirific fics that combine both puppies and people falling into bed and I have proof that Sid was mostly kidding, and OH, she made me laugh.

7. Dancing. See also #1 (above).

8. Betaing. Because I get to read fics and people actually want my opinion on stuff. It's almost as satisfying as writing, but much less work. Shout out to [livejournal.com profile] beckymoster. Thanks for letting me beta your stuff. Makes me happy.

And all of you, thanks. Hugs, cuddles and love available as you prefer.

Spark of Life by [livejournal.com profile] kyrieane is gorgeous post-descension Jack/Daniel and not to be missed. Really, go read it, it's an amazing/confused POV from Daniel. Way cool.

I'm also reading [livejournal.com profile] quercus' stuff. The Grave Yields Back Her Robberies is an amazing long slow burn with teh slash. Ended rather suddenly, but it was an interesting premise and the team was all in character. Qualified rec.

And, I'm gearing up to not be burned out here, for a while. Here is my plan... )
