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.

Southland

Into the Grey by [livejournal.com profile] breakthecitysky PG Ben, Cooper. It's short and 100% amazing.

“You can’t save everyone,” Cooper says, and Ben knows that’s right.

It still takes everything in him though, not to turn and say, “Yeah. But you saved me.”


by the same author Ache is Hiding, Hoping

He watches Cooper, but Coop’s as hard to read as ever, that calm, easy face, the eyes that know how to keep secrets. He meets Laurie, which is weird, because it’s hard to imagine Cooper with anyone, really. They get in the car, they head back to Los Angeles. He gets a few more glimpses. He gets that glimpse.

He watches Cooper’s profile as he talks about his dead friend. About seeing him in gay bars, and getting ignored. He watches for any sort of flicker of reaction in that face, for regret, or loss, maybe even anger, but he can’t seem to find it. Just another peek into a part of Cooper that Ben’s never had access to and as greedy as he wants to be he can’t bring himself to ask for more. He just lets it go, hang in the air before dissipating, eyes moving back to the road.

It’s not like he stops thinking about it, though.


Star Trek

Earth Kids are Assholes Gen Spock and Kirk meet in a different way. When he gets back to his aunt's house, his mother asks him what happened to him, and he says, "I made a friend."

She arches one eyebrow. Others would say 'almost as well as a Vulcan,' but she is his mother, and he knows better. She says, "With your fists?"

He thinks about it. "Yes. With my fists."

His aunt laughs. "Congratulations, Amanda. He's finally mastered the culture of eleven-year-old human boys."

Spock doesn't understand the joke, but it makes his mother smile.


Supernatural

Vagabondage by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat NC-17 Wincest Dean shrugged. “What, I can’t have fantasies? Look, I do something crazy unsafe, it’s gotta be hunting evil. Otherwise it’s just stupid.” People who weren’t them were either dangerous or not yet proven dangerous, and he could handle that ordinarily. But letting himself get disarmed and under someone else’s control--he’d be taking too big a risk of leaving Sam behind, and no matter how hot the thought got him there was no way it was worth that price.

Sam closed his mouth. Then, with the deliberation of someone drunker than he ought to have been, he reached for the bottle on the nightstand between them and took three long swallows, throat rippling as he tilted the bottle up. When he put it back, it rocked and nearly tipped over, until Dean reached out to save it.

While Dean was occupied with that, Sam said, “There are ways. If you wanted.”

Fic

A Corner of Your Heart by [livejournal.com profile] tigs PG Damon/Elena (Elena/Stefan, Caroline/Matt). This is a fun light hearted fic. I love the dialog and the characters getting a chance to be themselves without all the things that go bump in the night.

Elena says, "Care— Damon—" but Caroline grins and Damon just smiles ingratiatingly and holds out a single rose, because he knows how to play the gentleman. Those of Elena’s sisters that are on the first floor are looking between Damon and Elena and Elena knows that they're wondering if this is the infamous Stefan. Maybe Damon knows it too, because he says, loudly enough for all the gossips to hear, "My brother wouldn't want you to miss this night because of him."

So, under Caroline's direction, Elena gets pulled back upstairs. Halfway up the staircase, though, they pause so Caroline can say, "Most of the guys are hanging out in the basement. Try not to eat any of them alive, okay?"


Ignorance is Bliss Until They Take Your Bliss Away by [livejournal.com profile] devilc Mature Jeremy Gilbert/Tyler Lockwood

Tyler laughs and says, "You are so hung up on her. She's gone. Get over it."

Anger bubbles up in Jeremy like water from hidden spring. He's so fucking sick of it. Sick of the people he loves dying on him. Sick of Elena and Stefan and their secrets. Sick of people treating him like he's five. Sick of all the pretending. Sick of all the lies.

Null by [livejournal.com profile] nightfawkes PG Chuck/Casey. I'm a sucker for 2nd PPV fic. You’re shaking again, and you don’t dare stop to think about why. You whisper, “Is the whole more than the sum of its parts? Am I nothing but a lie?”

“You are not the lie, Chuck. You are the truth. You are real.”

“But who am I? If no one knows me, then do I exist?”


Only You by [livejournal.com profile] daria234
Chuck goes back over later to help Casey get rid of the bodies. He forgets when this stopped being a horror and started being a nice thing to do as a team player.

Casey is fussy. About everything: all the details of the cleanup, doing things right, leaving no trace. Chuck's used to it by now, but it had taken him a while to understand how all that fussiness could co-exist in a man whose fists and guns and angry eyes could make him seem like a wild animal. Eventually Chuck figures it out, and it doesn't seem so crazy.

It seems like being good at a job.

When Kara Thrace flies through the wormhole near the end of Season Three, she finds Earth-- but not the Earth that Galactica's been searching for. Instead she finds herself hailed by a ship calling itself the USS Enterprise! And yet it's so much more than that. Kara and Kirk are practically hetero life mates, she and Spock don't see eye to eye and she fraks nearly everyone on the ship. Her relationship with McCoy is beautiful

Crossover! Firefly/Star Wars

by [livejournal.com profile] vaznetti Gen River Tam and Yoda. There aren't enough words to express the genius of this fic.

"Hmpf," says the gnome. "Not wise at all." It turns and walks away from her; when River stands she can feel her feet squishing into the damp ground. Leaves brush her head as she walks around the trees in her path; small insects buzz against her ears as she follows the hobbling gnome. There's dirt between her toes now and a twig in her hair, as if the world was trying to prove itself to her.

She catches up with the gnome at a small round building. "I'm not real," she confides.

"All is not illusion," it tells her. "Learn you must." It invites her in and gives her a bowl of things grown on this very planet; she takes each piece out, one by one, to memorize texture, shape, color, before she tastes it. Earth-that-was had this wealth, she thinks. Maybe it was easier to believe in things, when there were so many of them.

She shrugged noncommittally and devoted herself to eating her chicken.

Draco adored Pansy, but he didn't trust her one bit. She always had ulterior motives. So did he. It was why they were friends.

So, that night he resolved to follow her. Pansy went out nearly every night to meet some bloke or other. There was a solid chance that it was a bloke affecting her decision because the only thing Pansy took more seriously than boys was mascara.

February, 2002. As the situation in Postwar England becomes more dire, Harry becomes more unstable. The other Aurors are tasked with keeping him out of trouble, but the bulk of the work falls to Draco. How far is he willing to go to save Harry? How far will Harry push the situation? While they struggle to define their complex relationship, old secrets threaten their future and that of everyone close to them.

I Wish the Goblins Would Come by [livejournal.com profile] marginaliana. Gen

As Hermione read through it, her feelings of skepticism grew. When she got to the end, she tossed the book down on the table in disgust.

Pure snorkack dung, she thought. Goblin king. It's just like something Luna would make up. Anyway, if the goblins had a king, especially some super-powerful magical king, I don't see why they'd submit to the indignities that the Ministry has perpetrated on them.

She paused. Then again, her eyes were drawn back to the ornate cover of the book. There had been something utterly sincere about the text, a feature which she'd found to be rather characteristic of the most bizarre situations the wizarding world had to offer. Luna's been right about a couple of things. I suppose it might be true.

Counting the Steps to the Door of Your Heart by [livejournal.com profile] annella JA/JP, NC-17. The one where Jensen has the Dalek costume. SERIOUSLY funny.

Jensen keeps his Dalek costume in the corner of his room, next to the computer desk. He tells people it's there because it doesn't fit in his closet, or because the arms are useful for hanging stuff on, but the real reason is to test people out. He's still waiting for someone to see it and say, 'Cool, a Dalek costume!' instead of, 'what the hell is that?' but he's sure it will happen eventually. It's a truly awesome costume. Jensen had to have it custom-made, because most Dalek costumes are either completely lame or only available in children's sizes. But it was totally worth the extra expense, and it even has a voice modulator inside it so he can say EXTERMINATE with that awesome Dalek reverb.

Fic

Seven Sunday Mother-Daughter Mornings by [livejournal.com profile] hradzka Catherine and Savannah Weaver. Gen. Brilliant.

"They say you look really young." Her mother didn't change expression. Savannah hadn't expected her to. "Some of them wonder if it's plastic surgery. Botox injections. That new nano thing." Savannah hesitated, then plunged ahead, to make sure her mother understood. "They say it's like you haven't aged a day in ten years."

"I see," said Catherine.

"They're not looking for much," said Savannah. "Maybe some wrinkles around your eyes, your mouth. A couple of gray hairs. Stuff like that." She shrugged, and took a bite of omelet onto her fork. "I always say it's good genes."

"Maybe you'll have them, too, when you grow up."

"Maybe."


Southland

Son is on a Midnight Run Like DeNiro by [livejournal.com profile] hackthis Cooper/Ben. NC-17. She says it's the fic she's most proud of. I can certainly see why. It's PERFECT.

And as soon as John stops laughing his ass off, he's going to make sure Sherman is okay. He really is. Except that Sherman's covered in carrot peelings and wilted lettuce and there's some orange sauce on his left sleeve, and oh god, John's lung capacity isn't prepared for this.

More Hackthis Cooper/Ben that's pure porn Sticky Fingers

Star Trek Reboot

Lunch and Other Obscenities by [livejournal.com profile] rheanna27 PG-13. Nyota liked her roommate just fine until she met her. The main dish is Uhura & Gaila friendship, with a tasty side order of Spock/Uhura
"The light was green," Nyota said, aware that was a conversational non sequitur, but past the point of caring.

Gaila's hands went still as she seemed to realize, for the first time, that all was not completely well. "Well... yes."

"Green," Nyota repeated. "Did you want me to walk in on you having sex?"

"Not especially," Gaila said, sounding puzzled. She frowned. "Are you annoyed we didn't ask you to join us? You know, I would have, except I'm a little pushed for time tonight."


Supernatural

I fell in love in Hell, and it is simply so distressing by [livejournal.com profile] rivkat R. Dean/Castiel

Castiel tilts his head. “When will I earn your trust, Dean? Will you require me to Fall?”

Dean struggles in silence for a minute. It is nothing for Castiel to wait, but Dean’s face is tight with discomfort. He blinks rapidly and his mouth twitches, half-formed protests discarded before they can be spoken. Even when he tries to close himself off, Dean is so open. His brother considers it a weakness, which is perhaps the primary reason that Castiel does not expect this cycle to end well for Sam. At last, Dean sighs. “You told me how to save Sam from Lilith. I—I appreciate that.”

Castiel shifts his weight, coming half a step closer. “Is that all that you feel for me?”
