CROSSOVER: SUPERNATURAL/SONS OF ANARCHY ::looks pointedly at [livejournal.com profile] cherrymmm and [livejournal.com profile] essene::

Hells Angels Ain't Just a Rival MC novel length, No Star is Lust interlude, Pagans, Outlaws, and Bandidos, Oh My Novel Length. by [livejournal.com profile] wordsothewitch. Run, do not walk. NC-17, Dean/Jax. Summary: Dean Winchester goes to Charming, California, expecting to find the final battleground of the Apocalypse. What he doesn't expect is Jax Teller and the Sons of Anarchy doing their dangerous best to keep the peace when the rest of the world's going to hell--literally. The Hells Angels aren't just a rival motorcycle club anymore, and Jax and Dean are going to do what they can to keep the world from ending for everyone, even if it means they die trying.

Friday Night Lights

Our Last Days as Children by [livejournal.com profile] lindentree PG-13 Luke/Becky Becky nodded, silently wondering what if. What if. What if she'd decided to let a mistake become a baby? Would that baby have her brown eyes, or Luke's, blue like the morning sky before the hot sun washed it out? What if they never had sex in the first place; sex so fumbling and awkward that Becky was left wondering why anyone bothered? What if they had gone on a real date, a proper date, not the kind of date sluts went on, and just held hands and drove around and maybe kissed? What if they had been boyfriend and girlfriend, and not rushed so painfully into all of these awful, hard things she now had to live with?

Becky brushed away the tear that slid down her cheek, hoping her mom couldn't see. What did any of it matter, anyway? Who even cared? Nobody. Nobody cared.

Southland

An Honest Life Gen. by Mjules When he was thirty-three and a half (not that he counted half-years, but Laurie did, and he thought it was kind of cute despite himself, just like everything Laurie did), his dad had been in prison for thirteen years. He’d been hanging around with this cute nurse he’d met when he had to get stitches in his left arm from getting nicked with a stray bullet, and she was nice, and he liked her, and they got along like a house on fire. She was starting to make noises about settling down, and having a family had always sounded like something John should do when he was grown up.

And if thirty-three and a half wasn’t grown up, he should do some re-evaluating.



Star Trek: The Next Generation

Metadata by [livejournal.com profile] hairyparamecium G. Data, Data/Geordi The poker game seemed forgotten. "Further, I believe it must be pointed out that my gender was itself essentially an arbitrary decision on the part of Dr. Soong. He and my mother argued over the matter until he simply crafted my head in his image. In fact, one could say that this is true for any aspect of my personality. For example, while I am in all practical aspects ambidextrous, I do favor my left hand for simple tasks such as painting. This is not a conscious choice or a spontaneously generated piece of code. It was a decision that Dr. Soong must have at some point purposefully made while he was creating me."

Supernatural

Deep Breaths by Trollprincess Mature Ellen Harvelle/Mary Winchester. It feels like you're swallowing shards of glass, but you say it anyway. No to his fucking offer. No to having John when you can't have your parents as well. No to a life you've always wanted, with a good strong man like John, when it's attached to a foundation built on rickety playing cards and a root cellar littered with the bodies of your parents.

Whatever this thing is, no one trades a restored life for a mere visit to pick up "a little something." You'll have strings attached to you for years, trailing behind you for the next decade like you're some fraying, knitted jellyfish.

No.

"Fuck you," you add for good measure.


Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

A Jack Knifed Juggernaut (I am born again) by [livejournal.com profile] arenotvalid Gen. Cameron character study. John has suggested that she rewatch Battlestar Galactica. He said, "You can't immediately learn to act like a human. Try acting like a cylon first."

Cameron does not derive enjoyment from watching television. Additionally, Battlestar Galactica is confusing. The Commander of the Fleet is always clapping slowly, but he should not be wasting time on symbolic gestures.

One of the cylons has faith. He chooses to sit in front of a human and to have her inflict physical harm upon his body. Within the parameters of the fictional construct, he has a fully-functioning nervous system. Within the parameters of the fictional construct, he is able to leave and he does not. He appears to derive enjoyment from the pain. This is called masochism. This robot is a masochist.


The Vampire Diaries

A Fool for Lesser Things by [livejournal.com profile] paradise_city IMO, the BEST Damon character study out there. PG Elena/Stefan, Elena Damon It's a perfectly clear and succinct answer to the question he didn't even have a chance to ask. This is clearly Stefan's fault; it’s got his signature all over it, the way he always ruins the things he cares about most. Damon could be angry about it, if he cared enough, but once he knows Elena’s not hurt he’s mostly just enjoying the schadenfruede of it all. He knows Stefan sees himself as the hero in their brotherly narrative but Damon's been amassing more and more evidence to the contrary. It’s not a role he necessarily wants to play, but it is one he enjoys denying Stefan. So while this last-minute road trip didn’t start out as one of the best ideas he’s ever had, taking his brother’s heartbroken girlfriend along for the ride suddenly makes it look a whole lot better.

A Spinning Carousel by [livejournal.com profile] tokenblkgirl PG-13 Bonnie Bennett Elena says: “I know what you’re going through. I’m here for you Bonnie, whatever you need.”

Bonnie hears: This isn’t about you either.


Break Me Open by [livejournal.com profile] scorpiod1 NC-17 Damon/Stefan “Stefan,” Damon reached out, touching his brother’s cheek.

Stefan flinched away from him, backing farther away as if trying to disappear into the darkness.

Damon paused, observing his shivering brother. He didn’t look well at all, eyes sunken in, face drawn and pale; a pathetic junkie, ashamed and desperate. He seemed almost feral, his mouth and chin covered in blood, too frantic in feeding to watch himself.

But it wasn’t just hunger in Stefan’s eyes wearing him down; it was the painful clarity, the knowledge that he could no longer maintain the illusion that he was better than Damon. Stefan prided himself on being above it all, so proud of being able to live off squirrels and rabbits but strip that all away and Stefan was just another hungry vampire. He couldn’t pretend he didn’t want just as deeply as Damon did, maybe even more so, not when there was proof right here with Damon as witness to it all.

Damon pulled his hand back.


Break Your Little Heart by [livejournal.com profile] aiscat93 Teen. Alaric gets him back with a stake to the back next time he sees him, and as Damon is cursing fluently and trying to reach around to pull it out – with much difficulty; this is amusing, and Alaric reflects that he should stake him more often – Alaric thinks that this is the stupidest situation he’s ever been in. He should stake Damon properly – hell, he killed his wife, clinically if not literally – but there’s something about him that Alaric doesn’t want to stamp out. Maybe it’s the sort-of humanity that Alaric can kind of see lurking under the surface, maybe it’s that
Damon seems to be showing some odd desire to save Mystic Falls from other creatures as bad as himself – but killing him looks to be a bad idea, from whatever angle Alaric’s standing at.


Civilised by [livejournal.com profile] entangled_now R. Damon/Stefan "Maybe if you ask me nicely, I won't eat them," he says sensibly. Because Stefan does love sensible conversations.

Though he's far too close to be entirely sensible. Close enough that they're probably a scandal in any polite society.

Stefan's used to his invasions of personal space, used to Damon pushing himself into his space. But this, Damon's never dared anything quite like this. Maybe the poking of old wounds has made him more reckless than usual. Or maybe he's getting sentimental in his old age. Hell, maybe this town is just impossibly dull.

So he lays his mouth against his brother's.

Stefan's goes rigid underneath him, hands flying up between them to shove at his chest.

Damon considers, just for an instant, not letting Stefan go, of reminding him exactly which one of them is on the high protein diet and which one of them is weak and soft and vulnerable. Because it's a reminder Damon is always happy to give.



Give them blood, blood, blood. by [livejournal.com profile] kermitfries00 R Damon/Stefan Damon is slow a lot of the time. Human slow, just because he can be so much more than that. He relishes in doing the mediocre. You remember trying to explain that to father, because this is the way your brother has always been. He didn’t understand. You didn’t understand either, dutifully spitting out words Damon had said, things he’d done, attempting to explain a person you didn’t understand for a benefit that only benefited you. Defending him, he didn’t need that, but you did. Damon transcended comprehension. He was the only thing you couldn’t figure out, the only thing that had pieces leading to nowhere and parts that just didn’t work with no explanation at all, no meaning at all. Or so you told yourself, just to ease the sting that being left in the dark - after so many years - you were left with.

Stefan/Damon by [livejournal.com profile] iwrotethissong PG-13. "How’s it going?"

"What?"

"Don’t play dumb with me; I know you. I’m talking about the cravings."

"I don’t have any."

He tilts his head and regards you. "Wow. I knew I was always the better liar but I never realized how atrocious you actually are at the art of lying."

"Leave it to you to make it an art."

He waggles his eyebrows. "When it comes to me, everything is an art." He comes closer and looks at you more closely. "Man, you look like hell."

“Texas?” Her mother’s nose wrinkles in the same manner and Blair has to bite down on her bottom lip to keep from laughing. “But… I thought we were all going to Paris this summer.”

“Mother… I really need something different,” she tries to explain even though she doesn’t know if she can. She isn’t sure that even she fully understands it.

Eleanor stares at her for a moment and Blair holds her breath. “You’re already so different, Blair,” she says, standing up, coming to her and Blair tilts her chin up so their matching dark brown eyes could meet. There is a moment of silence and then Eleanor sighs. “Texas?” She says again and Blair laughs.

‘Cause You’ve Got An Awfully Long Way To Go by [livejournal.com profile] paperclipbitch Puck/Kurt, Finn/Kurt, PG-13

“Or be banged by Finn, whatever, I don’t know what gets you off,” Puck shrugs, “I mean, you look like you bottom, but-”

“Oh my God,” Kurt says helplessly and it sort of comes out as a whimper. He must still be asleep, this cannot possibly actually be happening. Puck cornering him by his locker and discussing his sexual preferences is just too unlikely and ridiculous, even after all the other weird shit that’s gone down recently.

“Hey,” Puck says, “for all I know you get all animalistic and bossy in bed and that’s cool too, you know, if you want to top the shit out of Finn. I kind of doubt it ‘cause you’re carrying a girl’s purse and also you make that chick in Legally Blonde look manly, but whatever works for you, I guess.”


Iron Man

Concession by [livejournal.com profile] obsession_inc Gen. Incredible what-if fic. Pepper Potts [and Tony Stark] have disappeared and Christine Everhart, Vanity Fair reporter investigates

There are thousands of available pictures of Pepper Potts and she is out of focus in every one of them. Every one features some combination of Tony Stark, weapons manufacturing mogul, foreground; Virginia Potts, personal assistant, background. If it wasn't so infuriating, it would be damn near poetic. Christine resigns herself to having to request Pepper’s employee badge photo from Stark Industries, fighting their (understandably less-than-forthcoming) H.R. department for a picture that will end up looking more than a little bit like a mug shot. Which, under the circumstances, is a tasteless bit of irony that Christine could do without, regardless of her editor's opinion to the contrary.

Star Trek

A Member of the Nightshade Family** [livejournal.com profile] savoytruffle Adult. Mirror!verse. Spock has a plan for dealing with the new captain. McCoy agrees to take one for the team. Kirk hasn’t quite learned the meaning of “too good to be true.”

“I’ll bet he has…” McCoy skims through Kirk’s file, shaking his head as he goes. “So, this…kid fucks a paraplegic a few times and calls him ‘Daddy’ and he gets command of the flagship?”

“Positions in the Empire have been awarded on less logical bases.”

“Ain’t that the truth.”

“It would hardly be in my interest to construct a strategy based on falsehoods,” Spock notes. “And this conversation would proceed more quickly were you to curb your habitual use of redundant human idioms.”

McCoy rolls his eyes. “This conversation would proceed more quickly if you’d stop using three times as many words as you need to make your goddamn point, but you don’t see me holding my breath, now do you?”

Spock raises an eyebrow. “I will assume that question is rhetorical.”


The Vampire Diaries

Buddy Ficlet!! by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat

At least he was here, with her, instead of trying to fend off five werewolves all by himself. Elena wondered if it was something about being over a hundred years old, or at least about not growing up with the macho ideal so many guys her age seemed to obsess over: when Damon looked at a situation that he couldn’t handle, he actually showed some realism.

Well, sometimes.



But It Can Be Won by [livejournal.com profile] silviakundera Stefan/Elena/Damon OT3
The first time Elena Gilbert thinks she fell in love was a wince-bright sunny day. The memory is vivid, stained glass clear:

The grass smells freshly cut and the necklace he fastened is warm from the sun (but she’d thought it was his palms, so large when they’d settled on her shoulders). It singes the front of her throat as she smiles at him. He is so mysterious and new, and she likes that, likes the impossibly perfect way his mouth fits over hers. He said he wanted her to have this.

It's nothing like Matt and his sandbox, stole-your-toys grin. It's like running away from home, convertible top down, the wind in your hair.

He thanks her for pushing him; she’d always wanted to push somebody.

oh, this is it, she hums in her head. this is what I’ve been waiting for.

**

She’s wrong.


The Quick brown Fox by [livejournal.com profile] entangled_now Damon/Alaric NC-17

He's careful not to slice into the skin because Alaric is already a heady combination of sex and rage and guilt, and adding blood to that would be too much like chumming the water.

Damon only has so much self-control after all.

“Not—not friends, exactly, but—allies.” He cocks his head to the side. “Do you want to be friends?”

“Absolutely not,” she asserts. “I would rather kill myself.”

“Good to know,” he murmurs.

“I’ll commit to this agreement on two conditions,” she tells him. He arches an eyebrow and she smiles slowly. “One, you never tell anyone that I willingly converse with you.” He rolls his eyes but doesn’t interrupt. “Two, you let me read some of these stories that Serena is always raving about.”

“Miss Granger,” Snape said slowly, “Do you actually expect that I would agree to…marry you…if I thought I would live through the war?”

She stared back at him, unwilling to back down. “If you are so convinced that you won’t survive, why even put this plan into place?”

“I assure you that this was not my idea.”

She closed her eyes briefly. “I see.”

“Do you, now?”

“Still,” she began again, at full strength, “In the event that you were to survive…I would want some assurances.”

“Ha,” Snape spat. “So now you show your true colors. A monetary amount, I assume? How many galleons, Miss Granger, would it take to buy your soul?”

“That’s disgusting,” Hermione said quietly. “Neither my soul nor my life are for sale. If I chose to marry you, Professor Snape, I would want assurances that both would remain my own.”

“As I have no use for either, I don’t see where that would be a problem.”

“And would you…would you want an heir?”

Snape stared at her, disbelief drawn in broad strokes across his face. “Do you take me for a rapist? I assure you that I have as little use for your body as I do your soul.”

“So we would not be required to--”

“Absolutely not.”

“Severus,” Dumbledore began.

“What?” he snapped.

“You know that to bind this marriage, to prevent annulment in the instance that someone were to discover it--”

“No, Albus. No. I would rather be kissed by Dementors.”

"I'm going to ask Maggie out," Parker announces during lunch, which is mostly a loaf of bread and a jar of jelly. She doesn't like peanut butter much.

Eliot looks up from whatever's he's doing that's annoying Hardison. Parker knows Hardison's annoyed because his mouth is twitching, and he keeps glaring at Eliot over his sports drink like he wants to fuck him or kick him in the head and he can't decide which one to do first.


It's All So Clear To Me Now by [livejournal.com profile] fools_game

The first time she fell asleep at Hardison’s she woke up scared out of her brain and nearly took Eliot’s eye when he came to wake her. Because she’d fallen asleep on the couch, and when she woke up she was in an unfamiliar bed, under the blankets, with no shoes on. She’d fallen asleep with other people around. They’d moved her while she slept, and she hadn’t noticed, hadn’t even stirred, and she freaked so hard she was fleeing through the lobby before she realised she was barefoot, and then she had to go back up to get her shoes. Alec gave her coffee as she walked gingerly back in, and there was an omelette waiting for her, and Eliot was hardly smirking at all, so she stayed for breakfast.

"She's high," says Eliot.

"She's hitting on us," counters Hardison.

"Man, it's like date rape."

"No, it's not! Cuz she's raping us! Or, you know, she would be, if you let me go back in there."

Parker giggles from the other room.

"Tell me that's not disturbing," Eliot hisses.

"Okay, it's disturbing," says Hardison. "But she knows what she's doing!"

"How do you know?"

"Because I was a really good boy this year and asked Santa!"

"Tell me you did not ask Santa to get Parker high enough to sleep with you."

There's no reason why someone who weighed, at most, 120 pounds – and that was soaking wet and wearing a climbing harness - should have made him jumpy. So he didn't jump, quite, when she came out of fucking nowhere, and said, "Eliot. You sometimes have sex with women."

"Uh," he said, and then: "But... no, because y'see we work together and it's not that you're not attractive," and then his brain shorted out like that bad time with the guy who liked electricity in Shanghai, because Parker wasn't attractive. She was good-looking, sort of, but... no.

"Ha ha," she said politely. "Anyway, so, sometimes women must want to have sex with you, right? And you notice."


and

"Hardison helped me name them," she explained. Eliot very carefully did not wonder if she'd called him 'Hardison' all of last night.

"This one is Benjamin," she said, pointing at one who was looking off, unfocused, "and this one is Susan," the one Hardison was using as a posable action-figure, "and the black one is Grover."

Eliot couldn't help help asking. "Like the muppet?" He couldn't quite imagine kid-Parker watching Sunday morning TV in her pyjamas, eating Froot Loops, but she'd grown up in America, so she must have.

Parker looked at him like he was a new kind of idiot. "Like the thousand. They're mommy's little two-thousand and two dollars," she proclaimed. And Eliot had thought Parker in a relationship would be weird.

Jack asks Tosh what she thinks in a perfunctory sort of way – after all, she doesn’t need to know just yet that the only opinions that matter here are his – and she tells him she thinks Suzie seems sort of insane and does she even have the right skills to join Torchwood? Jack shrugs and phones in Suzie’s resignation for her, while Tosh makes disapproving noises in the background.

And there was wine in the temple, wine in the Sacrament, making glad the heart of Man, causing the lips of those who are asleep to speak. He's pretty sure there was something about breasts being as clusters of the vine, except he always feels a little uncomfortable looking too closely at that part of the Holy Writ. The point being: wine. So he knows what drunkenness is. Better than these children do. He's just… out of practice.

Lessons by [livejournal.com profile] entrenous88 Charlie/Draco NC-17. A favorite pairing of mine, for sure, but this is extra nice. Short, hot, dragon reserve fic. d/sish themes
turnonmyheels: (Recs:  B)
Thank you [livejournal.com profile] essene for the very sexy icon. *mwah*

::cracks knuckles:: I've got a *lot* for you today. Huzzah!

Battlestar Galactica

tension like release by [livejournal.com profile] pirateygoodness Starbuck/Admiral Cain NC-17 Cain's eyes say frak me and her mouth says try something, and Kara's not sure how that all adds up, but the slow itch of curiosity at the back of her neck says she's not about to leave before she finds out

very yummy.

Vid

Clint Eastwood by Gorillaz by [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar This is a Gaius Balthar character study and it's *awesome* the song, which I never would have thought to pair with Balthar is a perfect choice. Even if you hate him with a passion you should watch this vid.

Birds of Prey

Mood Theme


Birds of Prey Moodtheme by [livejournal.com profile] falsefoxglove Lemme tell you. This is fucking AWESOME. If I weren't so damned lazy, technologically impaired, and had a photobucket or some such I would have done this. Alas, I *am* lazy, impaired, and without a hosting site, so, I go without.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer

How Would Buffy Vote by [livejournal.com profile] st_salieri Gen. This is *awesome* not so much ficcish as little drabbles of each of the characters, each completely perfect and awesome, a little sad, and totally hysterical.

Friday Night Lights

I drove the crack_van all month. 12 fic recs, 1 crossover rec, 1 vid. They've all been recced here before, except the vid so if you're new to me or the fandom you should find something.

Gossip Girl

Do you have a secret!fandom!shame? I do. And it involves Gossip Girl. My favorite GG fic is Blair/Dan.

::Hangs head::

Anyone who knows how I feel about the *show* knows I detest Dan. He's judgemental. He's got a chip on his shoulder. He's more boring and "perfect" than Brandon Walsh and I CAN'T STAND HIM. But then there's Blair/Dan fic and I can't help but draw hearts all around it.

Blair/Dan AU of Doom by [livejournal.com profile] mardia. Starts with Serena away at Boarding School, Blair and Dan get assigned to do a project together and eventually become friends. Several completed stories, on-going universe. This is the tag page, you'll have to go back 20 to get to the beginning. You can fall into this verse for hours.

before the glaciers drown us by [livejournal.com profile] irishmizzy PG-13, Blair/Dan This is a Yale fic which is the best kind of Secret!Fandom!Shame

Some asshole raises his hand and asks about the required books and seriously, Blair can feel herself aging, one second at a time. Someone else stammers a question about the grading rubric and the familiarity of his voice makes Blair's head snap up. She hasn't seen him, not even in passing, since orientation in August. Even though she can only see the back of his head and a hideous sweater, she totally knows it's Humphrey. God, he would ask about the grading system.

Like she needed another reason to drop this class.


Bury Me in an Avalanche of Tingles by [livejournal.com profile] cashewdani Blair/Dan A grouping of stories [all linked to in the header of this post], this is the third they can be read individually and stand alone but should really be read together, and in order. Ratings vary from PG-13/R. AU during the summer between the seasons.

When his caller ID says Waldorf, he answers with no hesitation. He’s actually been that bored recently.

She doesn’t sound like herself as she says, “Humphrey, remind me that Brooklyn is shittier than I feel right now.” Kind of shaky and unsure, and even though he’s getting sick of the borough, he knows Brooklyn is definitely in better shape than she is right now.

Dan starts talking about the used bookstore he went to, and this poem by Larry Levis he found that he can’t get out of his head. He somehow stops himself from quoting his favorite line.

He only gets off the phone with her when she says they’re pulling up outside her father’s house. After hearing the thanks, which seemed like it held a hint of a smile, the line goes dead. He realizes, later on, that in his desire for human interaction, he’d never even asked why she was calling him.



And for something NOT Blair/Dan related I give you,

Lies My Father Told Me by [livejournal.com profile] moosesal Chuck character study. PG. Serious angst warning. Chuck found it hard to remember a time when he didn't drink or pop the occasional pill. Not that he was an addict. He wasn't stupid.

As fucked up as it sounded, his father'd raised him to be smarter than that.



Harry Potter

The Train to Hogwarts by Humantales. Gen. A Next-Gen sorting fic. ::flaps hands:: SO CUTE OMG!! Rose, Albus Severus, Scorpius

Smallville

Vid


Intergalactic by [livejournal.com profile] bananainpyjamas Clark/Lex The song is a mash up of Intergalactic Planetary by the Beastie Boys and the theme song from Veronica Mars We Used to be Friends by the Dandy Warhols. The song couldn't be more perfect and the storyline is flawless.

Torchwood

The Quiet Room by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller R Couplings: (please to note that not all of these are ships) Gwen/Owen, Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Jack, Ianto/Gwen/Jack "Inside this room, no one talks," Ianto said, his voice carefully neutral. "It isn't allowed. What goes on here stays here and, outside of it, never happened. Other than that there are no rules, in a manner of speaking."

melancholy, achy, and beautiful

Dark Angel

The Hubbert Peak by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool Dark Angel; Max/Alec; adult She moans and bucks up against him, desperate to be tasted, to be fucked, so hot and wet for it, he can pretend it's for him and not just biology fucking them both.

Friday Night Lights

Get Your Freak On by [livejournal.com profile] devilc. NC-17. Tim/Jean [that's girl Landry for those casual fans] fun, flirty, well characterized, and smutty. yay! [why isn't there more smut in the FNL fandom? It perplexes me]

Harry Potter

The Man Who Lived by [livejournal.com profile] chase820 and [livejournal.com profile] mustangsally78 January, 2002. Draco Malfoy is recalled from exile to a magic-starved Great Britain overrun by monsters. His work would be hard enough, even without a dodgy boss and meddling American aurors keeping things stirred up. And if the job doesn't kill him, Draco's new flatmate--a vastly changed Harry Potter--will almost certainly try. But Harry is not the only one who has changed. Some of the best family history fanon and OCs I've come across in the fandom. They're diligently working on Volume 2.

Stargate Atlantis

Hero for a New Age by [livejournal.com profile] smittywing. Gen. Ronon, Rodney, and comic books. Really, seriously, awesome. Long, fun, feelgood read.

Crossover, Stargate Atlantis/Torchwood

A Ring in the Black Sea by [livejournal.com profile] basingstroke NC-17, The Torchwood/SGA crossover is a new favorite of mine. In this one, Teyla selects her baby-daddy. Love the take on Pegasus Galaxy natives.

Torchwood

A Soft Spot for Apocalyptic Fuck-Ups by [livejournal.com profile] julad Immediate aftermath of Cyberwoman, Jack cleans up the mess

Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me by [livejournal.com profile] scribblinlenore R Jack/Ianto Jack and Ianto drink tea together. Past and present. The very distant future. Bring your tissues.

And, Yet by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller PG Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Jack, Ianto/Rose. Three ways that things were; three ways that things could have been. Extremely moving.

An Illustrated Life by [livejournal.com profile] overchay Fanart and fanfic. Basically, a slow day at the Torchwood Three hub comprised of notes, memos, instant messages, and other form of textual communication. This is just the first story of, hopefully, many to come.

But One Man Loved The Pilgrim Soul In You by [livejournal.com profile] lannamichaels PG-13 Ianto does not believe in: guilt, god, morality, shame, or letting Jack fuck him on a bed. He sees no reason to pretend to be normal. Excellent character study

Cinephile by [livejournal.com profile] nightanddaze NC-17 Jack/Ianto The dark of the cinema is special for Ianto This takes its cue from 02.10 From Out of the Rain but isn't spoilery at all. Really, I was just captivated by the way Ianto looked like he was going to cream his trousers in the beginning of the episode. *excellent*

Loneliness by [livejournal.com profile] notevery NC-17 Ianto/Tosh, And that’s okay, she knows, pressing the back of her hand to her lips to stifle a moan as he kisses lower, lower – imperfect is okay, as long as it does not mean alone.

Of All Trades by [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 NC-17 Ianto/Tosh, Ianto/Gwen, Ianto/John Hart, Ianto/Owen and of course, Ianto/Jack. Ianto is one his knees I like him there *g*

Restraint by [livejournal.com profile] ninjasnano PG Tosh, Ianto Ianto is good at tying knots; Tosh is good at untying them. Down in the semi-darkness of the Hub's lower levels, with rope and a stopwatch, they practice methods of escape.

Myfanwy's Song by [livejournal.com profile] sister_luke Gen. I'm a sucker for Myfanwy fic, this is beautiful and devastating.

spoilers for make me a supermodel )

Those people who tricked me into watching Supermodel will be amused to find out I'm recording the dance show that's taking its time slot and I am going to be *all* over the show that starts next week: WorkOut. Bravo, you may lead me into turning on my TV more than once a week. Yay?
