It's been kind of a ghost town around these parts recently, huh? I'm hoping it's because EVERYONE IS WRITING FURIOUSLY ON THEIR [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang. (I don't know why I typed that in all caps. Like the amplied force of my internet-yelling will extend to the far reaches of bandom, or something. Whatever. It's late. This is a really long tangent to go on in the middle of parentheses.)

I am ALMOST done with my Big Bang, and it's actually gone in kind of a different direction than I had originally pictured. But in a good way, you know? Like how you go see a children's tale and instead you get Tim Burton and Johnny Depp being crazy weird at you. Actually, no, that's not what I meant at all, because I've been hearing reports that that movie is very bad. But it's kind of what I mean. It's teetering at the halfway point. God, I should just stop talking. You guys are getting worried about my fic, aren't you? Fortunately, it is much less incoherent than I am right now, mostly due to the combined powers of [livejournal.com profile] redorchids and [livejournal.com profile] chaoticallyclev.

HERE, HAVE SOME RECS. (What? I'm a one-trick pony.) They are

From the Greek Paradeigma, Meaning "Example", by [livejournal.com profile] daygloparker
It's Booth and Bones! It's BoothandBonesandBaby! And it's done really, incredibly well. I feel pretty odd about reccing this because there are so many comments on it already that I think most everyone has read it. But it is SO GOOD that anyone who hasn't read it should get with the program. I can't even explain what's so good about it. The characterization's spot-on in every single line of dialogue, but even more than that, the organization of the piece--and the organization is very unique, which takes a little getting used to--creates this pacing and atmosphere that makes the story excellent. I think I've stopped making sense. Oh, well.

Clark/Lex (NO, I KNOW, RIGHT? Where did this come from? Did [livejournal.com profile] piecesof_reeses develop multiple personalities?)
I don't really read this pairing. Nor do I watch the show. So I guess I can't really speak for characterization and realism. But what I can vouch for is the sheer enjoyability of this piece. It is SO LONG, but still a fairly quick read because it's not that emotionally-heavy. It's mostly just fluff. :) And that is totally fine by me. A great way to spend a few hours! God, that sounds bad. This fic is really very good! It's a fantastic feel-good story, shameless in what it wants to be. (Which is to say, marriage of convenience fic.)

Your Bottle Is Empty (But Your Glass Has Been Filled), by [livejournal.com profile] jjtaylor
Sam Winchester/Gabriel, secondary Dean/Castiel (I'm branching into all sorts of fandoms nowadays!)
This is a completely epic story, mostly about Sam and him finding his way. It's also incredibly happy-making--there are so many great crowd-pleaser bits in it. :D Anyway, I really enjoyed it.

Other Things May Change, by [livejournal.com profile] preromantics
J.R. Celski/Apolo Ohno
This fic is amazingly feel-good. Not without its typos, but those are pretty few and far-between. Also, this was written for a kink meme, so I'm pretty sure the author can be forgiven. What's really awesome about this story is how it tells so much story in so little words. It's the kind of fic that feels thousands of words longer than it actually is. And it's (good) kidfic, which means that feeling longer is always a good thing. :D The progression of the relationship is natural and really deftly handled.

Aaaand the recs are going to degenerate into [livejournal.com profile] wintergameskink threads now.

Any Lawful Impediment, by Anonymous
Johnny Weir/Evan Lysacek
Okay, I think everyone in this fandom has read this gem already. (It's accidental marriage trope, by the way.) I DON'T CARE. It is still so incredibly amazing. It's hilarious--consistently so, which is rare for something that's updated regularly like this--but it still has more depth than that. The relationship is slow-moving and deliciously UST and misunderstanding-filled, and--yeah. It just hits every single one of my buttons. Run, don't walk. This author is a genius, and I am probably going to end up cyberstalking him/her if/when he/she is revealed. (oh my god, that was confusing.)

Overexposure, by Anonymous
Johnny Weir/Evan Lysacek
Their sex tape leaks! (Isn't the title apt?) This thread hasn't gotten as much love as the above fic, but it is still fantastic writing. The atmosphere in this story's very different. There's more tension and more hate-sex, and the dynamic between Johnny/Evan is a lot more hostile. Which makes everything more intriguing, in my opinion. ;)

Johnny Weir/Evan Lysacek, but mostly gen
This fic is small and very, very unassuming, but there are so many amazing bits in it! I really like the Johnny/Evan Lysacek, and every so often there's a perfect line of dialogue that makes me laugh like an idiot. :D There's also a lot of Evan-mocking, which I am always down for. (It's the orange-ness, okay? I can't help it. I don't think anyone can.)

So, when I say there's been barely any bandom fic, I don't mean [livejournal.com profile] skoosiepants. I'm sure everyone drops everything to read whatever new story she has up, but I just thought I would mention it. :) Her newest is completely amazing. Demons, angels, ETERNAL LOVE. Only not as horrifyingly cliched.

God, I'm excited for [livejournal.com profile] bandombigbang. \\\\o////

i love your recs, have i ever mentioned that? mainly because I happen upon most of them all on my own and then am like HOLY SHIT, HOW DO WE HAVE THE SAME BRAIN?!? but then you always find really beautiful stuff i haven't seen (hi, Bones fic!)

...what do you mean you've hear reports that Alice is bad? The only thing I know is that michael runion thinks it was legitimately ugly. but. Idk, maybe because we didn't see it in 3d? I usually count that as a giant red mark on a movie before I even see it. But, idk. I'm not picky. It's Alice in Wonderland, only not. And there's Johnny Depp being weird in a way i can get behind. I hated the fuck out of the CGI (the dogs and weird creatures were just NOT MOVING RIGHT! I swear), and yeah, the end wasn't historically plausible, but still. Okay, and the hatter dancing to the f-ed up hip hop. but that was all amusing also. :P

dude.. there's been awesomely amazing/hurty pairs skating posted too, in case you haven't noticed. I liked it a lot. and other stuff. I've become a good FS rps stalker :D. (sheesh, is that a surprise? we should all be glad that I haven't turned to real stalking. because I'm freakishly good at this stuff)

Hahahah, you probably happen upon most of them all on your own because we cyber-stalk the same journals. /o\ I am pretty much the slowest reccer IN THE UNIVERSE. It's okay, though. It gives me a (pathetic) excuse for journal content!

Dude, I'm hearing EVERYWHERE (on the internets) that Alice is bad. Like, I hear that it's pretty, but still bad. I don't know. Racially/historically problematic, and also bad in just a plain crappy plot kinda way.


my stomach kind of hurts. :(

i don't cyberstalk journals... i hardly ever even check my f-list. I just live on delicious.com. and magically happen upon things.

eh. I liked it just fine. What makes the masses of the internet qualified to tell me my opinion? (Also, these same people call shit like The Men Who Stare at Goats good, obviously, they fail. :P)

WHY DO YOU THINK I HAVE LINKS TO THINGS?! it's not like i save them. dude. jsut go to delicious. tag search johnny/evan and trust me, you will find it. everything and anything, but particularly what i'm talking about. people saved the hell out of it for like 12 posts solid.

Sorry about your stomach.
