Ok, I did my meta recs list.

Here's my fic recs list, and explanation:

I have two categories of fic rec, and one hybrid.
  1. Fiction rec - a work in particular
  2. Author rec - anything by a particular author
  3. Fiction-by-Author rec - a particular work by a particular author - notable even among an entire library of that author's work. Most of these will have rather in-depth reasons why they should be read.
Again, I'll go ahead and say that not all of my recs here are going to be 'the best of the best' variety. I'm going to be honest with my assessment - they're my opinions, and not everything that's written is going to be exactly to my taste, even though they're listed here.

Rules to rec by:
  1. As with my meta recs, readability, coherence, and technical proficiency count in spades.
    1. The odd typo, transliteration error and homonym mixup are forgivable. I read a lot of fic by English-as-second-language authors, and some things don't translate easily.
    2. Any fic good enough to make me MISS the errors probably belongs on this page somewhere. Because it's damn hard to get those past me. (Most published authors can't.)
  2. They are very likely to hit my story kinks (not sexual kinks).
    1. I love long fic. They are much more likely to be memorable.
    2. Angst with good reason for it.
    3. Hurt/comfort
    4. Problematical ethics and/or loyalty. People doing the right thing for the right reason, damn the consequences, personal or intergalactic or anything in between.
    5. Out-of-the-ordinary format, point of view, structure, etc.
    6. Todd. Because everything is better with Todd.::hides::
  3. Probably obvious, but they lack things that turn me off of fiction.
    1. Excessive porn. If there's explicit sex, it's not there just for porn's sake.
    2. Excessive banter/snark. Sorry, I really don't like endless McShep sniping. I really really don't.
  4. They may have flaws, sometimes major flaws, but they're like coming home. Comfortable, heartwarming, a warm blanket to wrap myself up in when I'm sick and just want something to make me feel better.

Note: If you're on this list and I get something wrong (like your gender), please please drop me a note, comment, something, so I can fix it.

Also: [livejournal.com profile] slybrarian: I am not-so-quietly making off with your "Strangely Nice Ba'al" idea and running with it. I don't think he'll actually make it onto the Daedelus though. Right now he's cuffed to a bed in the SGC infirmary. I guess this means I need to go back and actually watch seasons 8-10.

Also also: LJ hates this post. Hates hates hates.



Fic Recs. I give up on this post. I'll post a different one for HP and SW:TPM and anything else I can come up with. )

I've been trying to write the sequel to Guardian at Hell's Gate, and I've run into a problem. I've been pretty darn careful to keep from crossing the line into wincest in the series, and Tadd's being a bitch (i.e. refusing to pass judgment on the issue).

Except...Bobby brings up the issue of Sam and Dean being, or becoming, lovers.

Ok, well, I hope you guys like Supernatural as much as Criminal Minds, because Tadd keeps giving me ideas.  And Sam and Dean are just yum.  Is there such thing as a "# ways Dean gets out of the Deal" challenge?  Because I already wrote one, and I have ideas for two others so far.  One borrowing from Steven Brust, and the other being a huge pun/play on words.

Tadd also keeps giving me crack titles for uber!angst stories, like Gratuitous Abuse of Loopholes and Hell in a Handbasket, although I blame the latter on [livejournal.com profile] tru_faith_lost.  The fact that Loopholes was supposed to be a crack!fic one-shot?  Matters not at all.  Sam and Dean were supposed to thumb their noses at the crossroads demon and go driving off into the sunset together.  Instead, I've got Dean all clingy and crying in Sam's arms.::sigh::  Right now those two are part of the Salt!verse...I don't know if I'll keep that name, but it's what came to mind.  Someone give me something better.

Tadd has this bad habit of making mountains out of molehills.  Look what happened with Knowledge and Innocence.

I finally dealt with Haley's Knowing Too Much (TM).  It's hard as hell trying to work little tidbits into stories without it coming across as a two-by-four to the back of the head.

I need to start writing down meta.  Really.  Especially in OI&E.  I think I've forgotten more OI&E meta than I currently know.  And that's damn scary.

So.  Emily's disintegrating.  Haley still knows too much.  JJ's being all pissy and jealous and protective.  Good god, Rossi's trying to pay a visit to the BAU.  Even though Gideon's not leaving.  Just so I can have him open mouth, insert foot.  I think my patent dislike of Rossi - make that bitter hatred - has made itself known.  I just want him to make a total ass of himself in front of Hotch.  The fact that Morgan wants to put a fist through Rossi's face is just a bonus.

OI&E is coming along slowly.  Like molasses.  That's been refrigerated.  It probably doesn't help that there haven't been new eps for a couple weeks now, or that I've caught up with Supernatural - I think I watched about 18 episodes in 36 hours.  And I really don't have the urge to do the same with Criminal Minds.  Right now I'm working on downloading Stargate SG-1.  I watched the pilot (again), and I've seen a handful of the early eps.  I might just end up taking a break from OI&E and work on the Salt!verse.  Or something else.  I have a Gideon/Reid/Hotch challenge I need to do for the Rounds of Kink #5.  The lead-in is there; the actual smut part, not so much.  I've left it to simmer while I work on Bloody Bandaids.  Nothing like knifeplay to get the blood flowing.  Pun intended.

I dunno.  As much angst as there is in OI&E, the boys and girls in the BAU just don't do angst like Sam and Dean do.  At least, Tadd's not giving me more skin!hunger type clinging stuff for OI&E.  Blah.

In other news, I updated the Fic Master List.
