turnonmyheels: (Vampire Diaries:  Katherine)
Star Trek Soup Group: my own version of potato soup [started with caramelized onions and garlic, no dairy, a bit of bacon, half potatoes were boiled and pureed, other half were baked then added at the last minute, dry sherry!] and Mudd's Women

Speaking of Mudd's Women -- this is one of those episodes I clearly and vividly remembered. Why? The chicks are so hot. I want to be the girl in the green dress and I want to own the lavender dress. And I remember Tom always saying it was one of his favorite episodes, therefore it was one of mine. Ah, the logic of the child.

ANYWAY: fandom tropes! Venus drug a la something that makes the three women completely irresistible to the men. The Venus drug also made the women more visually appealing. It apparently worked on both genders as even Uhura seemed to be effected. No Yeoman Rand, I wonder if she was recovering from the sexual assault? No Chekov. When does our favorite Russian join the crew? In the end, the women could make themselves beautiful with the power of their mind and the men on the mining planet decided it was better to have a wife that could do shit than to have a trophy wife.

ETA I forgot to mention the computer that functioned as a lie detector.




Caught up with SoA last night. JFC JFC JFC JFC

I banged out about 400 words of Juice/Chibs right after the episode. JFC JFC JFC

And then there was the Vampire Diaries. AGAIN JFC JFC. Can the real Katherine come back? Please? Pretty pretty please? Also, GOOD GOD BONNIE please let my theory be right and you're playing that mofo because otherwise? I don't think I can handle it.

Also:

Dear CW,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart, loins, and all other naughty regions of my body for you picking such a gorgeous amazing cast. GAH!!!!




Re: teen wolf fic:

Remember, when you don't write the fandom OTP -- you don't get the hits. Or the kudos. Or the comments. Or anything really other than the satisfaction of having written down the story that was driving you nuts.

Remember this. Remember this. Remember this.

Why do I never want to write the fandom OTP?

Why are my favorite fandoms the ones where I'm pretty much the only one there?




Tonight: Skyfall with Julie

Saturday: more mowing up of leaves + fancy wine expo!! [must figure out what to wear to be dressy, pretty, and WARM]

Sunday: weights, cleaning, and cooking of the soup.




I think I've figured out why my ears won't stop itching!

I think the ear drops have dried the skin so badly on the inside of my ears that it's itching like dry skin/eczema because when I put some Udder Cream in there it stops itching for a few hours at a time.




Training my mom went OK. We'll see how long this goes on. I wore my personal trainer shirt and said,

"This is my forty dollar and hour shirt."

I don't think she got the hint.

Burn Notice/Supernatural


Smoke On the Water by [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory Gen.

Whoever these two guys were, they weren't FBI. They were doing a pretty convincing imitation of Feds, but there was something about the way the two of them moved that belied the act. They moved in synch with each other, which pointed to a long-standing partnership, but if they were Bureau then they wouldn't have been together for more than a year, maybe two at most, and that wasn't nearly enough to account for the unspoken communication I could feel coming off them. Besides, the FBI isn't in the habit of pairing up new agents: it's one rookie and one experienced agent, to prevent screw-ups.

It was Page who gave them away, although I doubt anyone other than a trained operative would have spotted it. Plant was the decoy, all swagger and good looks and loud-mouthed questions, but Page was sizing up the room, sizing me up, and within about ten seconds I saw he'd planned all their escape routes and spotted the pistol I was carrying.


Fake!RPS/Merlin

Pairing Pendragon/Merlin meta-fic, *hysterical* and quite moving too. 80K. Merlin pursed his lips. It was a lot, but he’d read White (fuck he loved White) and it wasn’t like he was actually going to do his coursework. Well, he’d do enough, but the lure of fic was way too much. And it was technically practise. Can’t do a degree in editing without editing something, and he’d much rather edit the sexy adventures of his fictional namesake than his actual Uni work, which had rather different mistakes, a lot less romance, and definitely no porn.

He dismissed the idea that he was ignoring Pendragon’s comment (and if he could surround it in little hearts, he would. He’d already screencapped it for posterity.). He wasn’t avoiding, or ignoring, or anything else -ing. He was participating (shit, that was an -ing) in fandom. And meeting people. And stopping being such an NNF that he got seven responses to anything he posted if he was lucky. Guinevere80 wrote hot knights slash and got a decent comment count; he was fortunate

Fringe

13 Ways of Looking at a Betrayal by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat Olivia, Olivia/Peter. I bet you I've read this half a dozen times already. "Liv," her sister says, and Olivia closes her eyes, wishing that she could cross the distance between Boston and Chicago as easily as she can (now) swap realities. "Are you trying to excuse him, or condemn him?"

Rachel only vaguely understands what's happening, but she seems to have accepted 'identical replacement' for now.

Olivia sighs. "A little bit of both?" she says, missing the old telephone cords that you could twist during your uncomfortable conversations. "Anyway, I should go. Give Ella my love."

"Always," Rachel says.


Harry Potter

The Best Revenge by Arsinoe de Blassenville Teen. Gen. One of the most enjoyable HP fics I've read in years. The author goes right back to the beginning and asks the question, 'what would have happened if Snape saw Harry's Hogwarts letter addressed to the cupboard under the stairs. In this fic, Harry is HAPPY. Adults take care of children. The Heads of House are intelligent, witty, capable, and AWESOME.


A Muggle-born Magic Draco/Hermione Regency AU. Hermione Granger finds herself in need of a way to pay off her father's debts after his death. Draco Malfoy, retired from the politics of the Isolationists, a group of pure-bloods bent on separating 'true' magic from lesser folk, finds himself in need of a tutor for his son, Scorpius, who appears to be incapable of magic and must learn to survive in a world without it. Draco also needs a wife and mother for Scorpius, to satisfy a promise to his unwell father. After she saves his son from an attack by Isolationists, Draco hires the Muggle-born Miss Granger for the former, and after a riot in Vauxhall Gardens and a scandalous discovery made by his mother, weds that selfsame Muggle-born for the latter. While making the best of her marriage of (in)convenience, Hermione discovers that Scorpius' history of wild imaginings and dreams is more than just imagination.
Luther

Single White Female Alice Alice lived at home during university and grad school. Her parents weren’t as smart as her, but they weren’t stupid enough to let their child live with a bunch of coeds and no real adult supervision. So by the time she turned eighteen, Alice was desperate to get out. She found a flat and grad student to share it with and told her parents she was moving out. They could pay for it. Or they could pay for it. Their choice.

They chose to pay for it.



Make It Or Break It

by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul Also for me for Yuletide, also perfect. Emily, Payson, Gen. Sort of, Emily agrees, and she nods. But sort of, too, she thinks Payson is wrong. Because sometimes, what happens off the mat, that’s such a huge deal too. Like, she’s good and she’s getting better, but would she have been good enough for the Rock if she’d come out of another elite gym and not from the Y? How much of her story is the reason she’s here now, struggling to make the National Team? Can she really separate that from whatever talent she has?

Her story makes her Emily, and Emily is the one with that all-important skill. If it’s just about the moves, just about the technical skill, is Emily all important too?

Those thoughts make her head hurt. She puts them aside to deal with later.



RPS

The Doors of Time by [livejournal.com profile] felisbalnco Jensen/Jared ultimately NC-17. This is without a doubt, one of the finest AUs I have ever read, if not the best. The world building is truly astounding.

Sons of Anarchy

A Study of Courtly Love in Leather and Chrome by [livejournal.com profile] escritoireazul This was written for me for Yuletide. It is Tara and Tig and Courtly Love and it is perfect. Picture, if you will, the tableaux: The dark-haired beauty who will inherit the throne and rule beside her prince; all who cross her shall look on her and despair. Kneeling before her, head bowed, the knight who cannot bear to stand one moment more now that he has returned to his most beloved. Her hand, so delicate, outstretched to brush her fingertips against his hair.

She is no princess, this woman, but a doctor brave and true, and he no knight in shining armor.

Fic

Don't Hold It Against Me by [livejournal.com profile] smc_27 Adult. Caroline/Tyler "Stop avoiding me!" she hisses. He rolls his eyes like she's just the needy girl she was...until recently. "Tyler, this is..."

"Look, you saw me cry, okay?" he whispers, looking around to make sure no one can hear them. There's not even anyone else around. "It's not cool."

"It's fine!" She smiles and he narrows his eyes. "I cry all the time."

"You're a girl."

"So? Who cares? I just...I could...We could help each other." She shrugs one shoulder and looks at him, and he tilts his head and shakes it just slightly.

Yes, she's just given him the admittedly adorable look that has always, always gotten her her way.

"You're evil," he tells her. She actually laughs and he cracks a bit of a smile. "Fine. Whatever."

He walks away and she texts him before he's even at the end of the hall. She hears him whisper, "Goddamn," and laughs. When he turns to look at her, she just taps her ear and giggles when he looks totally confused.

She'll have to explain all that to him later.


The Fine Art of Poisoning by [livejournal.com profile] turnonmyheels NC-17 Damon/Katherine, Stefan/Katherine, Stefan/Katherine/Damon. In the Spring of 1864, Katherine Pierce poses as an orphan to gain entry to the Salvatore estate in Southern Virginia. She captivates the household with her beauty and charm. She has everyone under her thumb with one exception, Stefan Salvatore. Determined to seduce him without using compulsion, Katherine decides to use Stefan's only obvious weakness against him—his brother. Pitting the brothers against each other quickly becomes more than a game, turning into full-on obsession as Damon requires no compulsion and little seduction to corrupt his younger brother. As the triangle shifts and the body count rises, no one will remain unscathed.

Lame Ducks Don't Do Well as Parental Figures by [livejournal.com profile] badboy_fangirl. Jenna Sommers. The next time Jenna sees Andie, she's got this beautiful silk scarf tied around her neck in this abnormally stylish way and Damon Salvatore's hanging on her arm. Jenna gives herself a silent high five as she watches them nuzzling each other in a booth; that is until she turns around and sees the look on Elena's face.

Some days she'd rather be lame than parental at all, really. It's only on this day that she realizes she's both.


Like a Dog With a Bone by [livejournal.com profile] eenaangel PG-13 Caroline/Tyler “Tyler Lockwood is following me,” she says in lieu of a greeting, or an apology. She glares at Damon like this is his fault-because even though they get along a bit now, she still likes blaming shit on him. It’s easier than having to find the actual responsible party and it soothes her ego to slap him around when the memories of his abuse resurface and she’s trapped in a haze of anger and bloodlust.

Stefan and Damon share an ominous vampire look that must be something they inherited from their father, because she can never look that serious/frustrated/amused/worried without also looking constipated (so she’s trying out her vampire looks in the mirror-she doesn’t really need to sleep as much and sometimes she gets bored). Stefan wanders over to the windows, peers through the blinds, and then gives Damon a grave nod.

“And you led him here,” Damon rolls his eyes, but doesn’t lose that amused light in his eyes. “Thanks Blondie.”


No Claim On You by [livejournal.com profile] summerstorm Gen. Caroline Forbes This one time they're having coffee together outside, a couple of weeks into spring weather, and Bonnie says, "So how are you dealing with, you know, the cravings?"

She's halfway through a sip so that it looks almost casual, the way her voice is soft and she looks all concerned and stuff, so Caroline spouts off some crap about the tricks she's learned to quell her thirst when it gets dangerous, and thanks Bonnie for asking.

It's kind of awkward, because she doesn't want Bonnie to freak out or think Caroline thinks Bonnie supports vampirism as a rule now, which means she can't say what she actually means, which is Thanks for asking like you're concerned about how I'm doing instead of like you're a criminal profiler trying to predict a serial killer's next move.

But it's not glaringly obvious in a bad way, she doesn't think. She just points out that what she's saying is kind of personal, as an apology, but Bonnie reads it as an accusation and says, "I'm sorry. I didn't mean to—"


Not Your Rosalie Hale by [livejournal.com profile] iphignia939 Gen. Caroline Forbes

”Because it was safer if you didn’t know,” Elena says.

”But I wasn’t,” Caroline says – not rude or anything, because she gets it, now. She still thinks people messing with her head, like, once a week is messed up, but there are some things you don’t remember and stay the same. Like that nurse at the hospital. No one wants to remember being someone else’s salad bar. “Damon used me like a salad bar that gave blowjobs, and there was this dark-haired lady, and Stefan made me forget that night when he slipped me vervain to mickey Damon. I wasn’t safer. I was just stupider.”

And oh, man, now Elena’s crying. “I’m sorry!” Caroline says, waving her hands. “I mean, I’m not, really, because I’m not wrong, but I’m sorry I said it that way—“

”No,” Elena says, sniffling. She wipes at her eyes. “You’re not wrong. And – it’s kind of nice, actually, to know you’re still you. Only Caroline Forbes could say that that way.”

“Well, duh.” She shrugs. “I’m still me. I’m just bitey.”


The Pitchfork Play (Not) Its Part Well by [livejournal.com profile] havocthecat PG. Liz Forbes The vervain clears its way out of Liz's system in three days.

Throw Yourself From Skin to Skin by [livejournal.com profile] turnonmyheels Adult. Damon screws (with) Mystic Falls, episode by episode. Damon is a vampire. There will be death, rape, torture, sex, bloodplay, etc.

“What do you think they’re talking about?” Alaric regretted the words as soon as they were out of his mouth. He’d known better than to make small talk with Damon since the moment he met him.

“I’m sure Isobel is all ‘My darling girl, I can’t believe I let you go. Please come closer so I can drink your blood.’” Damon rolled his eyes and stared at Alaric. “And then Elena says, ‘No! You can’t drink my blood, but I’d like to get to know you, you’re my mother after all.’”

Alaric leaned back against Damon’s car and kept his eyes on The Grill. “Forget I said anything.”

“Generally speaking, I can’t even remember you exist much less your inane excuse for banter.”

The absurdity of the statement forced a chuckle from Alaric. “You are so full of shit.” Damon huffed out a noncommittal sound. “Seriously, you’re always, ‘Let’s go kill something, teacher!’ You can’t keep your hands off my weapons, you stalk me through town at any given opportunity, and now that my not exactly dead vampire wife is in town you’re shadowing every step I make.”

Damon kept his eyes on the entrance to The Grill and didn’t speak.

“I think you like me.” Alaric didn’t bother to hide the dopey grin on his face. “I think you want to be” -- he nudged Damon with his elbow and clasped both hands together in front of his heart -- “friends.”

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."





And that my friends, is my fannish contribution for the summer.

Abomination, they declare, harbinger, coan-teen, words they can barely pronounce, let alone understand, and if she were on any other planet her eyes would well with tears, and she would leak water for her childhood.
