Well, crap. I already did a weekend post, didn't I? Okay, well, Sunday was spent chasing down my boss who was running a marathon, going to church to stand in the front and have one of the elders say nice things about me becoming a member, getting my hand shaken (not stirred--you may groan), and then going back for a pizza party celebrating the fact that my boss finished said marathon. (His first.)
This morning, I had pizza for breakfast and watched 'Guilt,' from third-season SVU, in which Alex (who is working her way up my list of favorite female characters who also happen to be blonde--it's a short list--) breaks laws so she can put a pedophile in jail. ( Female Characters Who Are Not Perfect and How to Do Them Right )
I have a few recs for fics I've read recently. Actually, if you have delicious or are thinking about using it, I'm holdouttrout
over there, too. All of the fics I put on there are ones I've enjoyed--it's not an exhaustive list by any means, but I saved the ones that are on there for a reason. :-)
You can find fics I think are particularly awesome by following my ficrec tag
. This is kind of a whimsical tag--some days I'm easier or harder to impress, or I just forget about using this tag. You can combine tags and search for stargate angst fic, or by authors I have in there (again, this is whimsical and somewhat based on critical mass), and you can probably find out entirely too much about what I find funny. *g*
Okay, onto the recs:
Stargate:A Step Ahead of You
, by mrspollifax
. Sam/Jack, spoilery for Ark of Truth and some of SGA season 4 (AU). A very good look at Sam and Jack in the "current" timeframe--kinda twisted and complicated and frustrating in all the right ways.kings until the power failed
, by _astralis
. Sam/Jack, Daniel (Sam/Daniel). From apocalypse_kree
, this has a tone I wish I could capture--all soft and meaningful and really, really quiet while packing a punch.
Iron Man:Chloe Liked Olivia
, by marinarusalka
. Gen. The summary kinda says it all: "One is the personal assistant to a billionaire-playboy-turned-superhero. The other is an ambitious journalist with a political conscience. Together, they fight crime!" It's not as cracky as it sounds, and it is really very awesome--two women, defined partially by Tony Stark, who find their way around that difficulty.Also, if you have any SVU ficrecs--especially Alex/Olivia--please rescue me from the voles and send them my way. PLEASE. I'm reading mushy romantic fic and it's just not right.
