So. Still primarily interested in Sherlock and Sherlock/John (while continuing to catch up on Doctor Who, though not feeling the need to read fic). BUT. I seem to be getting hooked by this whole Avengers thing. A bit ago Pax had a Thor/Loki fic that was way cool, then recently, I mean like this past week, my brain went OH HEY STEVE/TONY IS PRETTY NEAT, and I've read some fabulous gyzym fic and am looking forward to poking at a rec list that went by on my tumblr dash. 

But also Pax has done gone and made me fall for a rare pair. :| From my rec post on tumblr:

Halo | by Paxlux | Tony/Loki (Avengers) | R/M | ~36K words

So it starts out with Pax telling me she's going to write something Tony/Loki and me thinking, hm, that could be interesting--and finishes with me being FUCKING RABID for the pair now. Which kills me, because this has got to be a massively rare pair, and where am I going to get my fix of fic of it? Especially more that's written as amazingly well as she does here.

The characters in this are just sparkling and sharp--her Tony is stellar, and her Loki is perfectly layered. Even the secondary characters are just spot on and vibrant, and the various friendships and team bonds (whether wacky and as nuts and the craziest of families in downtime, or a smoothly functioning unit in battle) really shine through. But most importantly, the chemistry between Tony and Loki is intense. Yet it's more than that; there's really something there between the two, more than just chemistry or a meeting of the minds.

It's a long fic, yes, but paced just right, and lets this complicated relationship of complicated characters develop in a very real way, while also having a really good action/villain story arc as well. I said many times in emails to her that I hope I enjoy the movie as much when it finally comes out, and hope the characters and their friendships/team relationships are just as freaking awesome.

But seriously--yeah, I've gotten hooked on the whole Steve/Tony ship that's out there, but I have to admit, I love Tony/Loki, at least how Pax writes it, far, far, far more. Pity her (though it's her own fault :p ) because I've already started gnawing on her about writing more with them. Obviously a 36k epic fic is not enough for greedy me. :|

In other news, in WoW, have accomplished the Through a Glass, Darkly quest, on the way to getting a legendary caster staff.  UGH SO, SO DIFFICULT, or at least it's that hard for a warlock to do, but despite that, managed to succeed after two days' work, respeccing into a talent tree I'd never played before, a lot of in-game gold on materials to buff my character (not to mention repairs), and studying many guides other players had written. A long ways to go yet to get the staff (a couple of months of raiding for the quest drops needed), but the worst is over, and eventually I should be the second in our guild to get one.

oh hai.

Right, so life has been happening, and I've been seriously remiss in posting but I promise I will later. Mostly it can be summed up in two things: plumbing, and I'm a lazy bastard of a hermit. Yeahwell.

In the meantime. SHERLOCK SHERLOCK SHERLOCK. I can't begin to describe how freaking much in love with this show and characters I am these days, and it's damned near all I read. I have not abandoned the boys, I just...it's an *infatuation*, and just. *___* Anyway. In amongst fic reading, I saw a story that was 5 different AUs of how Sherlock and John could have met, and one scene was them as SPN style hunters. And I thought: GODDAMN I WANT A FULL FIC OF THAT. I whined, and hell if [livejournal.com profile] paxlux didn't take up the challenge. (My squishyyyyyyyy ♥)

thank the hatchet man who forked my tongue, [livejournal.com profile] paxlux, gen, PG-13, 8400 words
IT. IS. AWESOME. Awesome awesome awesome and I love it. *_____*

The only thing that bums me out about this fandom is that I just don't think I could write in it, not poetry and definitely not prose. Ugh, I wish I could fanpoem for this show, golly gee whillikers.

...but then I was a bad person and read this instead and goddang, insta-rec.

Winter by [livejournal.com profile] destina ; Sam/Dean, R, 23,270 words
Summary: On a snowy, wooded mountain in 1992, John Winchester turned a ramshackle cabin into a refuge for his boys and taught them how to survive. Sixteen years later, as Dean's deal with the crossroads demon comes due, Sam leads his brother back to the safety of that isolated training ground. Haunted by memories of the past and sudden visions of a hellish future, Sam makes a choice to embrace his powers and set a different fate in motion. As storms descend on the mountain, Sam and Dean grow closer, and Sam grows stronger...but the clock is ticking.

Ohhhh, so good. Swear I didn't so much read as devour. I already love destina's writing, but I'm pretty danged sure this one will remain one of my big bang favorites this year even after they're all posted.

Wishbone by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux ; Sam/Dean, R, 4350 words, post s6/AUish
Domestic future fic *______* But in a way that's so very Winchesters in every tiny detail, and that suits the boys so very well. There's a bar, the best juke box ever, a wishbone or two, and an ending that made me freaking sparkle honest to god ♥ I just, I want them to have this sort of life together so much I can't even begin to tell you. I guarandamntee I'll be rereading this one with frequency.

Sam/Dean, R, 6318 words
So, I'm not very into vampire AU fic, I mean I'll read it, but it's not the sort that really gets me geeking out. But werewolf fic involving the boys (or Jared and Jensen)?  Um. YES. *___* I won't lie, when Pax told me she was writing boys-as-werewolves, my response was :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D and I freaking went sparkle-eyed over every snippet I got to preview.

This just has such gorgeous writing, just wonderful ways of phrasing things. And Dean and Sam are not only very, very Dean and Sam, but they're absofreakinglutely Dean'n'Sam and Sam'n'Dean from the word go, with that incredible soulmate connection that makes me so happy in Show. Then when there's bonding and then...not gonna give it away, but ♥♥♥! I have a thing for bonding and certain other werewolf-type tropes and this just all made me happy, okay? ^___^ This story also gets the special note of making me use the phrase ominously cute to describe certain parts. :3


In other news, have just made dark chocolate-covered frozen kiwi slices (this recipe sans popsicle sticks), and as of last night I'm now hooked on Community. :B The muscle knot that's once again developed in my back/left shoulder area that's making it hard to twist and move my head can GTFO, though.

J2, PG13, 1508, short, but so freaking utterly adorable that I still feel like I could happily wrap myself up in it like a blanket. So very darling for so many reasons.


re: Wowowow. First kill on Heroic Maloriak Monday night, and for a short time got to enjoy an unfortunately temporary title (i.e. Lord Victor Nefarius yells: Congratulations! Allow me to grant you a title befitting the amazing achievement you just performed! Henceforth, you shall be known as the Slayer of Stupid, Incompetent and Disappointing Minions!)  Patch day today, got to try out Zul Aman as a 5man heroic--definitely challenging. Eagle boss was just as much a pain in the ass as when way back when.


Still need to change out a bunch of icons. So lazy. Especially on days where I'm pretty much sick/wrecked all day because of only a few hours sleep the night before. Only maybe three, four years ago, 3 hours a night was my normal.

I won't say what the pet is, but her choice was absofreaking perfect. This, oh this ♥ A little bit of hurt-convalescing!Sam, books and reading (oh, the boys reading, how I love that so), a gorgeous atmosphere, bits that truly make me laugh, and just one of the sweetest, most beautiful Sam/Dean moments. It's funny, it's charming, it's sweet, and just makes my heart so incredibly freaking happy. This is so many things that I adore, that I have to convince myself that she isn't psychic and poking around in my head. XD So going to be rereading this one often.

Anywhere Road by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux, Sam/Dean, R, 39,295 words

Epic. Seriously. Was allowed to see bit by bit as this was written, and I have been itching with wanting to rec it the whole time. Love this so freaking *much*. A brilliant AU in which the world is the same, but all the people we know--Sam, Dean, their father and mother, Bobby, his wife, even Jess, have definitely ended up on roads less traveled. Still raised nomadic, in this the family business is being car thieves. I love the world in this, but even more, I freaking adore how she weaves together the histories and life stories for all involved, managing to be excellent AU versions of themselves, but at the same time very much mirroring canon. It's fascinating and so detailed, and I loved seeing each time something came up that connected to and echoed the show. The characters in this really shine, the dialog sharp and filled with excellent banter and snark, and Sam and Dean are freaking perfect. And it's freaking perfect in crafting their Epic Love Story.

It draws inspiration from Kerouac's On The Road, and I really love how I get the feel of that novel in this story. And it's like reading a movie, so cinematic at times, and man, I just love how it all made me feel to read, up to and including the ending. ♥

Artery by [livejournal.com profile] paxlux, Sam/Dean, R, 11,075
♥♥♥♥♥ I just. \o/ Freaking awesome fic inspired by a freaking gorgeous bit of Siken poetry. Reflections of the poem are woven into the story so well, and she writes the boys *SO* right--and with such brilliantly snarky banter and roughhousing between them. And I love how the snark is perfectly *them*, like tradition, the way they've always been--then becomes like a mask to hide the thing developing between them, and then shows the blend the old and the new of their relationship. This made me grin and snicker and laugh and want to draw hearts on things. And leave an overly long comment. (Again. ^^; ps Carhenge! \o/)

In other news, nearly set the oven on fire again. I dunno. I guess using two cookie sheets on the same rack screwed up air circulation so the thermostat wasn't reading right, and it just kept blasting hotter and hotter--nearly charred the parchment paper and the food thereon. Only realized something was wrong because of the smoke alarm, though it wasn't smokey at all (the heat, I guess?). Who knows. I suck. (Though I at least succeeded at break-apart cookies and nearly from scratch carbonara pasta). In other other news, I seriously freaking suck at a computer game. It is pathetic how badly so. Just makes it feel worse, not feeling truly comfortable, knowing that those certain few are judging me. I just..why do I make such *stupid* mistakes, and give them ammunition?

Also, love this song, so so much. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wAS8JUP39I http://www.songmeanings.net/songs/view/3530822107858671084/

So sometimes you have a fic that's one of your most favorite, is your favorite by that author, and you think that it'll always be your favorite. Then something someday comes along. It hooks you, addicts you, gets under your skin, makes you completely and utterly fall in love with it. And then it ends. And you realize, that favorite has slipped to number two, and something else has taken its place.

Low mood, not feeling well, not getting done what I promised someone I'd do. And opened my virtual mouth and hit someone with major TMI and am regretting such. Way to push boundaries in the name of being sympathetic, self. I'm great at making people uncomfortable.

New warlock in guild (person from our old guild rejoining us) is, as I expected, kicking my ass hard in DPS. Not only is this person very good, but it just shows how bad of a player I am. I'm mistake prone, I forget things, I'm not efficient about spell rotations/cooldowns, my reflexes are crappy. I can keep trying to learn, but honestly that's what I've been doing for 6 years of gaming. I'm just at heart a lousy player, and it's kind of embarassing to have it so spotlighted again. Also, observing subtle sexism in game makes my stomach knot. Or maybe the individuals in question are just being assholes and it wouldn't matter who to--but I have this feeling, especially considering the past issue, that it's more than that.

Went to finally spend my Amz giftcard from my brother for my birthday last summer (I know...), and...I swear, I used to spend so damned much on music. But I could find barely anything I wanted. All my favorites, I mean, they're still good, but almost all of them are doing stuff that's no longer my musical tastes. Kind of sucks. At least picked up two new things from Ben Cooper: a new EP for his Radical Face work, and his latest Electric Presidents CD. At least, he's got 3 new projects in the works for 2011, so that'll give me something to listen to eventually. Also got the other Ian Astbury/Unkle song, and the newest Assemblage 23 for when I'm in an electronic mood. Just weird to still have a balance with Amz (not counting the iTunes gc from the husband I still have). I swear, I used to devour music, what the hell's wrong with me. Need to try to find new groups/artists to try, I guess. (Thought I was going to try more Mogwai, but I dunno, the samples just weren't hooking me like their newest did.)


I See Lightning, J2, NC17, ~3,100, breathplay
Leaving myself this to reread, seriously got under my skin. Not just because of the kink or the fact that it's so well-written--but how incredibly well she gets inside Jared's head and enables the reader to share that headspace, before, during and after. And the incredible feel of trust, caring and love that is shown between the two is as much the reason it was so powerful and intense as the kink and sex.


Wonder if this is 'coming down with something' or just allergy flare up. And wonder if the husband would mind pizza or something.
