pirateygoodness: mine. (lostgirl: aced the class on pretty hair)
Time for some [community profile] femslash11 recs!

Abut, Abet, Abed, by zvi (Lost Girl, Bo/Lauren, PG)
Bo and Lauren, having that talk. This is sweet and in character, and kind of hurts in that way that Bo/Lauren always seems to. I love it.

What Happens in Bangkok, by [personal profile] aural_stimulatn (DCU Batverse, Helena/Dinah, PG)
I don't know, you guys. I'm kind of the worst comic fan ever, but I do love Birds of Prey and I definitely have a soft spot for the way that Helena totally wants to bang Dinah like, all the time. This is a really endearing look at the two of them kind of maybe sort of starting something, that ties into the recent BoP run really nicely.

She's got no future (just a life to endure), by [personal profile] mosca (True Blood, Jessica/Pam, R)
If you've been watching True Blood this season, you know all about how Jessica is slowly, quietly becoming amazing. This story walks through the way Jessica and Pam would and should hook up, and fits really nicely with what we know about Season 4's arc so far. Also, it's sexy, and also, slutty queer lady vampires.

Meminerunt Omnia Amantes, by [profile] thrace_ (Lost Girl, Bo/Lauren, R)
Guys, this is hands-down amazing. It is Bo and Lauren, and [profile] thrace_ gives Lauren the backstory she totally has in my heart, and Bo is an awkward idiot horndog and Kenzi is the Kenziest and Bo has to save Lauren from a thing, and it involves feelings and sexiness and an actual plot. It's cute, and very in character, and then sometimes there are moments that make your heart beat faster while you're reading, and basically it's everything I like in fanfiction so I cannot be coherent about it at all. RUN. DON'T WALK. THIS IS THE BEST STORY EVER.

This time next week: FanExpo is happening. There is a Lost Girl panel. Goal: to not make any embarrassing Dr. Porn Lady jokes while in the same room as Zoie Palmer. Also, to be in the same room as Zoie Palmer. And possibly Anna Silk. And that one that [profile] fivewhatfive likes.
pirateygoodness: (castle: a book? you shouldn't have.)
Some drive-by Yuletide recs before the archive crashes again author reveal:

The Shape of A Sooner State, Fringe, Olivia and Altlivia gen
This story is just the best. Probably my favourite Fringe fic of the bunch this year (that's a lie - my favourite is the next story in this entry), this is a gorgeous, perfect study in the contrast between the two Olivias and the two universes. The author does a fantastic job of looking at the subtlety, the way a lot of both sides is the same, and I love it.

The Art of Fugue, Fringe, Astrid gen
Gentle, sweet fic about how Astrid is quietly extraordinary. This hits something in my heart, in a really important way, and I think it touches on something that the show doesn't acknowledge about Astrid, but that fandom often does - Astrid is so human, so well-adjusted, compared to everyone else around her, and that's actually astounding. Run, don't walk to read this.

happiness hit her like a train on a track, Castle, Beckett/Alexis, PG-13
You guys, I don't know why this story is so good. It's Castle futurefic, and Alexis is a plucky Columbia law student and Beckett is a lesbian cougar and it just works. Surprisingly well. Like, I read this twice in a row and then sort of wanted to cuddle it, IDK.

The Beginning After The End, Castle, Beckett/Castle, PG-13.
I'll admit this right off the bat - I hate a lot of Beckett/Castle fic. I've got very particular ideas about the way their relationship should play out romantically, if it should play out at all, and a lot of stories don't work for me. This one, though, hits exactly the right notes. It's, uh, zombie apocalypse fic, and just the right balance of depressing and romantic.

In conclusion: fanfiction is pretty rad.

ALSO: FOUR DAYS UNTIL [livejournal.com profile] girlsgunsfic STORIES ARE DUE, I AM SIMULTANEOUSLY STOKED BEYOND BELIEF AND TERRIFIED THAT EVERY SINGLE PARTICIPANT IS GOING TO DEFAULT AT THE LAST SECOND. LADYCOPS!
pirateygoodness: (gg: one of my top 3 vanessas)
So oh my god you guys, [livejournal.com profile] femslash10 totally happened!

I wrote good girl (loves horses and her boyfriend too) (Legend of the Seeker, Cara/Kahlan, PG-13) for [livejournal.com profile] lurkete

And oh man oh man, I got the BEST STORY EVER from my writer. (Who, you know, is on my flist, so I am not shocked that it's fantastic.)

starting fires (Gossip Girl, Blair/Vanessa, R), by [livejournal.com profile] dirty_diana.

Guys, it's AMAZING. Honest-to-god awesome. It is 100% exactly every single thing that I love about Blair and Vanessa, and if you do not love Blair/Vanessa an unhealthy amount, like I do, IT'S STILL THE GREATEST. Seriously seriously seriously, it's wonderful. EVERYONE GO READ IT AND TELL HER SHE'S THE MOST BRILLIANT.

Other stories I loved:

you say you want a revolution (Mean Girls, Janis/Regina, PG-13), by [livejournal.com profile] ms_chak

When These Walls Fall (Legend of the Seeker, Cara/Kahlan, PG-13) by [livejournal.com profile] botherd

Anyway. Now that my recs post is out of the way, I'm going to go study and definitely not write anything related to Ridiculous Fringe Lesbianverse.
pirateygoodness: (dcrpf: listen to your inner lesbian)
HEY GUYS GUESS WHO'S A SPY NOW:

sorry the selena/leighton/blake degrees-of-separation thing is still funny. )

I APPROVE. And actually I really like that song, as well. DISCUSS, LADIES AND GENTS.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] thrace_ wrote fic continuing on in our ridiculous summer camp AU, if you guys are interested. It's here and totally awesome. OH BY THE WAY "CAROMING" IS A BILLIARD TERM, IT MEANS BOUNCE.

pirateygoodness: (gg: good secret agents have sidekicks)
HEY DO YOU GUYS LIKE VIKINGS?

HOW ABOUT LADIES?


How about FABULOUS NORSE LADIES who WIELD SWORDS and RIDE STEEDS and MAKE OUT WITH EACH OTHER for several thousand elegantly-crafted words?

GUYS I AM PRETTY SURE YOU SHOULD BLOCK OFF A FEW HOURS AND GO READ THE SAGA OF BLAKEN THE BLOODTHIRSTY, IT IS PRETTY FUCKING EPIC.

YOU WILL DO THIS:

pirateygoodness: (lots: just a girl.)
Hey, you guys, remember how Blake Lively is a viking warlord? (In case the contents of that tag don't make sense: Blake Lively is a viking warlord. It's a running inside joke courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] bleighton_squee, and also just true facts.)

So anyway. [livejournal.com profile] fivewhatfive is writing something totally amazing (like, totally amazing) that she's withholding from everyone, but IN THE MEANTIME, oh god. [livejournal.com profile] thrace_ and I got to talking, about how Blake is a viking and what if Kahlan and Cara (yes yes, mixing RPF and FPF, whatever) were like, on a journey to the far north and happened to run into the territory of Blaaken the Bloodthirsty and her favourite wench Laetin, and then maybe they had wild adventures and there was girlsex.

AND THEN SHE WROTE IT.

Guys, Every Mile Is Two In Winter. IT IS WONDROUS, and you don't have to know anything about Blaaken the Bloodthirsty for it to make sense. JUST READ IT AND BASK IN HOW GOOD IT IS.


Also, I don't know if you guys have heard of [livejournal.com profile] ladykink, but perhaps you should go there and write stories for it. (But - maybe not Legend of the Seeker fic. There's something coming for that, next week.)

Feb. 2nd, 2010 07:24 am
pirateygoodness: (lots: feelings r hard.)
Guys. GUYS.

Can You Get Me Off Your Mind. Cara/Kahlan, PG-13.

It is Legend of the Seeker fic, and also 8800 words of CARA AND KAHLAN BEING GROUCHY AND SNUGGLING AND THEN BEING GROUCHY BUT STILL SNUGGLING AND THEY SPOON AND IT'S AMAAAAAAAAAAAZING HOLY FUCK. And like, okay, [livejournal.com profile] thrace_ only wrote it because I sort of made her, but it is PHENOMENAL GAY ART ABOUT LESBIANS in this perfect, in-character way that feels like a secret extra queer (or cweer, or kweer) subtext episode of the show, and everyone in the universe needs to read it. Run, do not walk.
pirateygoodness: (dcrpf: lying side by side forever(&ever))
OH MY GOD YOU GUYS. SO, BEST [livejournal.com profile] yuletide EVER, Y/Y/MFY/NO SERIOUSLY?

Guys, I got THREE stories. And they are all PHENOMENAL, and I am trying to figure out WHICH OF YOU FUCKERS ARE RESPONSIBLE, because I want to shower you with embarrassing praise and draw hearts around screencaps of your LJs. I AM LIKE A PUPPY WITH THREE DIFFERENT TENNIS BALLS AND I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHICH ONE TO CHASE BECAUSE BALL.

ALSO ALSO DID I MENTION ALL OF MY STORIES FEATURE ADORABLE BABYDYKES. AND ALL OF THOSE BABYDYKES ARE DEMI AND SELENA. AND ALL OF THEM ARE WONDERFUL? Because yes. Anyway, in the order they appeared in my inbox:

three seriously killer recs under the cut )

Also, I wrote one too, obviously. And if you can guess which story it is, you. . .get a prize? I say every year that the prize will be fic, and then inevitably I never write it, so probably your prize will just be eternal bragging rights. WHATEVER.

Also, MERRY CHRISTMAS to those who celebrate!
pirateygoodness: (dcrpf: listen to your inner lesbian)
HEY DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT IS AWESOME? When your incredibly talented friends feel that they've somehow ~wronged~ you and actually agree to your half-joking suggestion that you write them dorky date fic featuring your favourite teenage popstars.

IN OTHER WORDS, [livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl WROTE ME A STORY AND IT IS GRRREAT. (See what I did there? I MAY JUST QUIT SCHOOL AND WRITE PUNS, PROFESSIONALLY. LIKE THOSE OLD CRANKY MUPPETS.)

In other words, you should all drop everything right this second and read Playing With Fire (Demi/Selena).

It is much, much better than any and all of the jokes I've made in this entry.
pirateygoodness: (hsm: parfaits have layers.)
Kevin Smith talking Twilight. The man is hit-and-miss, but this clip from his talk at ComicCon is, I think, pretty dead-on.

!!!!! [livejournal.com profile] riflethrough wrote me Ashley/Vanessa fic in which Ashley is ~totally a huge My Chemical Romance fan, and it's probably the cutest thing in the world.

These pictures of Ashley Tisdale arriving in New York, which are honestly just darling. You guys, she is using her adorable maltipoo to hide her face from the paparazzi. I am so charmed.



one more + discussion that relates to her sleazy boyfriend )
pirateygoodness: (gg: can i touch it can i grab it)
You guys! [livejournal.com profile] femslash09 recs!

First of all, I need to discuss the story that got written for me: My Female Trouble II, by [livejournal.com profile] fivewhatfive, who is a SNEAKY WHORE and conned me into thinking she was writing for someone else and had dropped out, just so I wouldn't figure out that she was writing the greatest story ever for ME. This story is, in all seriousness, epic. It's Blake Lively/Leighton Meester, but it's a Scrubs AU, and includes several dozen ridiculous oblique references to stuff from Scrubs, and also not-so-subtle Ashley/Vanessa references, and basically I think you only catch all of them if you have my brain, because she's amazing. ALSO it makes fun of Kelly Rutherford AND IS ADORABLE. You all should go read it, then tell her she's pretty.

Other stuff I've read that I like:

the self-titled lp, by [livejournal.com profile] dirty_diana. (Gossip Girl, PG-13)
It's this brilliant Leighton Meester/Jessica Szohr AU where they're in a rock band together, and it's sexy but sweet, and just wonderful.

Care Like You Touch Me, by [livejournal.com profile] thexpuzzler. (Gossip Girl, NC-17)
It's Vanessa/Serena, which I have not read before, and it's really well crafted getting-together-as-grown-ups fic that makes me happy.

Untitled (How Does It Feel), by [livejournal.com profile] annaalamode. (Gossip Girl, PG-13)
Blair/Jenny set in the future. It's fashion-y and they're both grown-up and sarcastic but in a mature way, and I don't know. It's just good, I don't know how to sell it better than that.

Meet Me in Budapest, by [livejournal.com profile] shopfront. (Gossip Girl, PG)
When Nate bails on his travel plans with Vanessa, Serena steps into the gap.

And, of course, I wrote A Verb For Falling in Love (Gossip Girl, Blair/Serena, R) and Her Best Friend Leslie Says (She's Just Being) (HSMRPF, Vanessa/Ashley, PG) for [livejournal.com profile] jengrrl

And. . .wow, all of that is tied to Gossip Girl. I mean, I knew going in that it was the only listed fandom that I continue to be interested in, but still. Goodness gracious.
pirateygoodness: (gg: never trust a spy.)
Just in case any of you weren't following [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang directly, I thought I'd post links to the amazing art that got made for My Heart is Plotting Treason, because seriously, this fandom is the greatest ever. It does all the things those big boyslash fandoms do, BUT WITH CHICKS IN IT.

[livejournal.com profile] elwhyenen made a delicious wallpaper and drew this gorgeous picture of Blake-in-drag (with icons!) here.

softestbullet, who is no longer on LJ, drew an epic (EPIC) mock pulp novel cover that I want to just stare at forever. It's brilliant and gorgeous, and you can see it here.

Finally, [livejournal.com profile] bartzina13 and [livejournal.com profile] fivewhatfive made this ridiculous fanmix, and it's hilarious 80s-inspired tracks about espionage with brilliantly slutty cover art (seriously, the back cover still gets me): My Heart is Plotting Treason
pirateygoodness: (hsm: tonight the headphones will deliver)
So, [livejournal.com profile] tamaraface is kind of this shockingly talented genius, and she wrote this series based on the Elle shoot that is amazing. It's Zac and Vanessa and Ashley and they're all working shit jobs and living together in this ratty apartment and this is one story of how they get together. Sort of. It makes my heart hurt, but it's so good.

I'm linking the parts one-two-three, in the order they were posted, but if you read them three-two-one then the story is chronological.

All You Borrowed

Ficmix
In which three parts make a whole.

I want to live and die in a small apartment ('verse primer)

no one ever leaves their home to go somewhere they detest (one)
Ash is sinking fast.

if you wanna walk away, just do so softly (two)
Zac is so in love with her that his head hurts with it.

we can live in sin if you really want to (three)
Maybe Van could be the one to give in.
pirateygoodness: (gg: i do it to my friends all the time.)
I - okay. This is sort of hard to explain, but it's so awesome it made my FACE MELT and I need to share it with all of you. Basically [livejournal.com profile] bartzina13 is a hilarious Blake/Leighton crack mastermind, and she decided that OBVIOUSLY WHAT GOSSIP GIRL FANDOM NEEDS is fansubs of the pilot, rewritten as if Blair and Serena are gay and Nate is a stripper and Rufus is hilarious and just. You need to WATCH IT, and I guarantee you will spend the entire 40 minutes doubled over your keyboard, cackling like a lunatic. IT IS THAT GOOD.

(ETA: OH, MAYBE A LINK TO IT WOULD BE NICE? It's here.)

Basically, it also reminds me of how much I LOVE Gossip Girl when I'm totally ignoring everyone jizzing over how great Chuck Bass and old people kissing are (which. . .sorry guys, I love that you love him, just. . .we have got to agree to disagree), and makes me want to do a Blake/Leighton James Bond AU for [livejournal.com profile] thelittlebang like, REALLY hard. (It would be awesome! Blake could be a rakish, scotch-swilling spy and I could put her in drag again, because apparently I find that sort of hot! Leighton could be a gorgeous, knife-throwing femme fatale who's sort of slutty! TOGETHER, THEY HATE COMMUNISTS!?)


Anyway, now I have to run to class, even though [livejournal.com profile] oldmarrieds (switching fandoms now) has like, 13409823048 posts about how basically, Zac and Vanessa went to Japan and made googly eyes at each other and did ridiculous things and Zac was a total, total dorkface. Which, at the moment, sounds like a lot more fun than what I'LL be doing with my morning.
