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.

Ang Lee and Brokeback Mountain have won the Venice Film Festival. *sigh* Come December, we will all know why, I hope, if they release the movie as widely as the ought to do. Ang Lee takes top prize at Venice Yay!

In other news, with a punk computer and a title-less story, I've been word-watching lately. What follows is a list of cool sounding titles for sale. Challenge: use title for inspiration )

You know how when we're writing online we'll say we're laughing out loud or rolling around on the floor and it's usually bullshit but it conveys a sense of our reaction with a healthy dose of hyperbole? Yeah, I'm not exaggerating this time. I just saw the Brokeback Mountain movie trailer and when it ended, I sighed and audibly said 'oh!' with longing. I. kid. you. not.

This is going to be such a beautiful movie.

[livejournal.com profile] nialla42 has information on where to read the short story. You can also read it in it's entirety for whatever reason through Amazon.com here.

[livejournal.com profile] destina has written a very nice bit about what the story is, where to find it, why it matters and why some of us are already in love and prepared to be as excited about this as Serenity or Harry Potter or any other wonderful film. It was through her that I found the trailer being hosted by [livejournal.com profile] tsikeh here.

As for the love scenes, we hear they've been edited, we hear they're intact... I don't know, I just know this: the trailer was G rated, and it made me sigh out loud.

Oh my God.

First challenge ever: If you loved Willimakee, or For Each Ecstatic Instant or Rounded with a Sleep, you need to go find a copy of the short story Brokeback Mountain. It's Annie Proulx, and primarily in the collection Close Range, though [livejournal.com profile] nialla42 has several other anthologies she knows of that it will be in.

You don't have to go right now, as many of us work or go to school (or both) or have lives or whatnot... but sometime (and may I suggest today? At least before the movie based on this comes out in December) you should stop by the bookstore, the library or your best friends who has every book under the sun's house and get your hands on this story. I read it last night and it is HAUNTING me. So heartrendingly lovely.

spoilery musings follow )
