the_deep_magic: (So then that happened)

I realize much of this is taken from other rec lists, particularly [ profile] aliassmith’s, but, well, it’s kind of hard to go wading into the swamp of TW fic without a map.  There are leeches.  Metaphorically.

Also, there’s a whole bunch of long!fic (over 20K words) that is presumably awesome but I just haven’t gotten to yet because I prefer to read my fic all in one sitting, which is seriously cutting into my sleep time.  I’m working on that.  ([ profile] 1lostoneficspot, all of your stuff’s on my “read me” list, I swear!) You’ll note these lean heavily toward the explicit side, but, uh, if you’ve read my back catalogue, this should not surprise you.  I warn for underage.  And, er, other things which may or may not be knotting.

the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (LotR: poor Boromir)
Okay sports porn fine literature fans, I need your help.  I may be in the market for a shiny new laptop for grad school.  I feel kinda bad, since the one I'm using still mostly works fine, but it's from 2007 and it's starting to slooooow doooown.  And I'm one of those people who insists on driving things until the wheels fall off, then duct taping them back on over and over again until it's more duct tape than wheel.  (For reals, I wear shoes until the soles either peel off or get worn through.)  But this time I'm thinking I ought to NOT wait until I get the Blue Screen of Death before I start shopping for a new laptop.

In which I pretend to know what I am talking about )
the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (Carnivale - Jonesy)

Just some linky-links I want to share and remember:

The Top Ten Relationship Words That Aren't Translatable into English -- A fic prompt, every one.

Why GenY Hates Phones -- See, there is a valid reason I do not pick up the phone.

Unusual Words Rendered in Bold Graphics -- I tweeted this, but I think it's worth repeating here, because word!porn.

FAQ: The "Snake Fight" Portion of Your Thesis Defense -- If only it were so easy...

COEXIST -- When I can scrape together $25.56 plus shipping and handling and delude myself into thinking I NEED another t-shirt, I'm so buying this.

Chloe's Nails -- I totally fail at being a girl 99% of the time, but sometimes I like to do my nails all pretty.  This chick goes a little overboard -- changing nail polish 3-4 times a day WITH kids and a full-time job?  Uh... okay, whatever yanks your crank.  I suppose I can't throw stones re: leisure activities.

Speaking of which, I believe I have some gay porn to write.

Query: does anyone have any recommendations for novels on Dreamspinner?  They're 20% off until tomorrow (novellas are 20% off March 21-27 -- don't worry, you'll be getting a friendly reminder).  I read Caught Running by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux off a rec from Smart Bitches, and I liked it alright -- not life-changing, but pretty good.  Anyway, there are so many eBooks and authors on Dreamspinner, I don't even know where to start, so I was wondering whether you all could recommend any.  I'm open to pretty much any genre as long as there's a happy ending (or it's written by Bell Ellis, whoever she is ;o)).

Many thanks to [ profile] therumjournals for my Blue Spider gift.  Its name is Chris because, in her words, "I WOULD HAVE NAMED IT ZACH, BUT IT IS NOT WEARING ENOUGH STRIPES."

ALSO.  Our flists mostly overlap, but that still does not excuse my forgetting to rec [ profile] ewinfic's Heroes Big Boom And Now These Three Remain.  If you're familiar at all with Heroes, click on that link right the hell now and go read it.  It is a work of art and a work of love, for serious.  And the art is gorgeous.

ALSO.  Tonight I made s'mores using a White Chocolate Peppermint candle as a marshmallow ignition source.

That is all.

ETA: Except for [ profile] shutterbitch just wrote me this awesome icing vs. frosting comment!fic.  THE SUGAR RUSH CONTINUES.

the_deep_magic: (In which Jayne is wise)
Okay, I don't know how many of you are "Penguins of Madagascar" enthusiasts, or simply familiar with the penguins from the movie... Madagascar, but you know Rico, the one who doesn't talk but routinely belches up weapons in times of need?  That might be my dog.

The other day, I caught him with what looked like a Q-tip in his mouth, but it wasn't, it was a match.  A white-tipped match, not torn from anything, just on its own.  And we're 99% sure the only matches we have in the house are either red-tipped or in matchbooks.  This isn't the first time he's shown up with something inexplicable in his mouth, either.  Little Dog, what are you doing?


Well, yes, there's that.

BTW, I think I've found the secret to not feeling steamrolled by yoga: there is an optimal snacking window between one hour and fifteen minutes and one hour before class begins.  Snack too early and I feel woozy by the fourth sun salutation; snack too late and I have to concentrate on not accidentally horking up peach-and-passionfruit Greek yogurt all over my little purple mat.

And now for something completely different: YOU GUYS, CELIBATE!ZACH FIC IS BEING UPDATED AGAIN ON THE KINK MEME.  WE LIVE IN EXCITING TIMES.  And I'm sure the author totally loves me mentioning this in the same post as stinky dogs and yoga barf.
the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (Carnivale - Jonesy)
Finally saw X-Men: First Class, and it was definitely... watchable for the slash.  Otherwise kind of silly (e.g. it's a good thing the U.S. Navy captain had CAPT. emblazoned on his helmet, or everyone might have gotten confused).  So... that really is Erik and Charles laying in a bed together.  No Photoshop.  They really are just baiting us now.  Anyone got any good PWP recs?  I don't see myself doing more than dipping a toe in the fandom, but look at me, I'm branching out these days.

Worry not, though -- I think I may only ever write Pinto.  Ever.  For the rest of time.

A word about Twitter: there is no link between Twitter and my RL.  The only possible link I can see is that I used the same e-mail address to sign up that I give to my friends.  However, twice now, Twitter has suggested I follow two different RL college friends.  Does Twitter somehow have access to my Google contacts?  Or their e-mail contacts?  Because at least one of these friends, I'm know I don't have his e-mail listed in my contacts.  I mean, you hear about everything being linked on the internet, but this is just disturbing.  Is Twitter recommending me back to them?

Not that either of these friends would be at all likely to follow me based on my username (which is fandom-only) or that it's obvious from my tweets who I am.  But it's not completely inconceivable that they would be able to figure it out.  And while one of them would find the fact that I talk about writing gay porn hilarious, the other definitely would not.  Fortunately, I almost never link back to this journal from Twitter, so they would have to specifically search LJ for this username to find it.  So the odds of anybody putting the pieces together are miniscule, but they exist.

Oh, internets, you are going to come back to bite me in the ass, aren't you?

So sometimes I get a little craving for het fic, just to, I don't know, remind myself that I have lady parts or something, and my brain took in the mighty figure of my Thor Slurpee cup and decided it wanted Thor/Jane Foster.  Anyway, I couldn't find a whole lot of great stuff (I'd imagine the slash for that 'verse is higher in both volume and quality), I did find two worth reccing.  Both authors succeed because they can actually handle the whole Norse-god-elevated-speech-pattern thing in the context of sex.  [ profile] waldorph does it hilariously in When Jane Pegged Thor (though eventually the ball gag comes into play) and [ profile] mekosuchinae does it fluffily in Salt on Your Lips (which contains lines like "I have partaken of the boilermakers and the whiskeys and the strawberry daiquiris.")  I don't think I have to specify that these are both PWPs.  So, my het recs: I give you them.

Poll time!

[Poll #1782473]

Pinto Canon Question: What's the name of Zach's best friend?  I know it's Bridgit or Brigit or some odd spelling like that, but I want to make sure I have it right.  For great justice.  Edit: It's Brigid.  And yes, [ profile] therumjournals, I should have specified best human friend. ;o)

Little Dog has not peed on anything indoors in days.  Days.  I am worried he is storing up for a pee-splosion soon.

I believe I may have mentioned that my friend loaned me the BBC Sherlock DVD?  Well, I've finally watched all the episodes (all of three them, I know, what a feat).  I've watched the first twice, and still think it's the best.  The second is a little over the top, though I like the third save for the cliffhanger (and some other things).  I suspect I will watch them all at least once more before returning the DVD.  Hey, I hung on to this friend's copy of The Girl Who Played With Fire for over a year.  Because I am a bitch like that.

Some non-profound (yet spoilery) thoughts on Sherlock )

Many thanks for the recs I've gotten already, though I haven't had time to read through any of the long ones yet.  I'm sure they're brilliant, but can anyone rec any good PWPs?  That's more my attention span at the moment, sadly.
the_deep_magic: (mirror!Spock)

1) Is anyone else not getting LJ comments?  Because I was so sad that Little Dog hadn't gotten any comments (his self-esteem is very fragile, you know), but then I checked the actual post and he had!  He had comments!  Perhaps I will read them to him.  He will listen for 0.003% of a second, then race off after his squeaky snake.

2) I forgot to mention Plato's old-man whiskers and beard.  I don't think he's sensitive about being prematurely gray, though -- it just gets him a lot of chin rubs.  And people think he's all ~mature.

3) Tomorrow is Research Day.  I will research grad schools, degrees, what to do with those degrees, a few things for fic, etc.  This is my goal. 

4) Also, I should be getting confirmation on the job tomorrow, along with a school ID and papers to sign and everything.  I'll be nervous until everything all goes through and I have students booked, but I'm still psyched.

5) Twitter, you and I are growing apart.  I'm not leaving you yet, but don't be surprised if one day you come home and my bags are packed.

6) Although, if I were Simon Pegg, I would respond to everything with "Fuck you, I'm Shaun of the Dead."

7) I have watched first two episodes of BBC Sherlock and will watch third in between Research tomorrow.  Thus, by tomorrow night, I am going to need some good fic recs.  Preferably short-ish, just to dip my toe in the fandom.  Didn't beederiffic write a Sherlock fic?  I tried to find it, but I couldn't.  So anyway, links plz.  But I will wait until after I've seen the last ep to read them.

While I admit I was a little bummed to find I wasn't the first to use the William Strunk Jr./E.B. White pairing tag at AO3, I was desperately amused to find this.  Brilliance.

Darkness has been updated!  With updates -- parts 25-28!  To read!  Go read them!

Also, college BFF and I were discussing the new series of Torchwood, and this is what she had to say: "And no, I haven't seen it, but I did see a preview at my parents house in which Captain Jack was getting tortured. I thought of you.  ;)"

Does the winky face make it more or less weird?

De Lantejoulas e Amor (a.k.a. the Pinto Carnivale fic) has been updated and finished!  Parts 5.3-6.2 are brand new, but you'll want to go back and reread the whole thing to remind yourself how AWESOME and SCORCHINGLY HOT it is.

Totally Anonymous Anon deserves ALL THE MUFFINS.

This is as much for my convenience as it is a rec list, but here are the WIPs on the [ profile] ontd_pinto kink meme that I'm keeping up with:

Zach decides to be celibate
De Lantejoulas e Amor (Carnivale fic)
Darkness (paralyzed Chris and nurse Zach)
Challenged (the boys trade dares)
Tobin Visher Presents: Chris (amateur porn star AU)

Some other awesome completed fills:

Patterns/The Usefulness of Underwear (so much humping!)
Zach/Chris/OFC (Zach gets pegged with sparkle peen!)
Gabriele (Rodolfo seduces Gabriel Gray)
Rough sex w/bottom!Zach (bonus fluff at the end)
Zach runs an escort agency and Chris "auditions"

While I'm at it, if you missed out on the following fics at the Pinto anon kink meme, check them out:

Chris rubs against Zach's ass while they sleep

Uber-slutty bottom!Chris

Zach fucks Chris in front of a window (D/s)

There are many other good ones, these are just my favorites!  PINTO, FUCK YEAH!

Sometime back in August, when Kink Bingo was in full swing, I started making comments on Twitter about how Spock would be, like, the worst cabana boy ever, and [ profile] babykid528 totally egged me on.  The result was my Pool Boy fic, and now she's made me fanart to go with it!  Check it out here and gaaaaaaaze into the blue bulge!

And since we're on fanart, most of you have probably seen this, but [ profile] deliciousny's latest Kirk/Spock is pure shiver-inducing, NSFW awesomeness.

Reccy recs

the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (Office Hours)
Okay, I think I'm finally caught up on commenting other people's fics.  Now there's just the matter of the bazillion amazing comments to me that I need to reply to.  But not tonight -- I'll probably be wide awake by the time my head hits the pillow, but for now I'm close to nodding off.  Anyway, some Pinto recs for you:

First off, my [ profile] trekrpfexchange presents.  That's right, presentS.  As in, two!  Must've done something right this year!

Love is Like a Bottle of Gin (But a Bottle of Gin is Not Like Love) by ??? [ profile] lousy_science
Zach is tired of being expected to play toppy, aggressive Sylar in the bedroom, so Chris indulges him.  I definitely have a thing for normally non-sappy guys being gentle with each other just because they can, and this fic captures that perfectly without feminizing either one of them.  Excellent dialogue, too, which wanders from topic to topic in a very realistic way.

The Burn by ??? [ profile] lousy_science
I was after hot, desperate sex, and boy did I get it!  Like the author says in her note, it's not quite a straight-up fill of the prompt, but I actually like that about it because it creates this angry, desperate, seething-with-lust mood that just explodes into rough, needy sex at the end.  Uh, maybe I'm not describing that well.  Shut up, I'm tired.  Regardless: go read it.

I think I might know who my Secret Santa is, but I'm relentlessly terrible at guessing these things, so I'm going to keep mum on it and probably say OMG I KNEW IT ALL ALONG when the names are revealed.  Also, some other awesome fics:

Different by [ profile] janice_lester
Zach has to bulk up for a role, and Chris really, really likes it.  I'm beginning to think I have a special fondness for fic where Chris is obsessed with some aspect of Zach -- either bodily or not -- and this one is just all kinds of inspiring.  LOVE Chris' internal monologue while he's being fingered.  This author has written quite a few things that haven't been posted to [ profile] pinto_fic, so I would highly recommend you head over to her journal and check them out.

You Can't Start a Fire Without a Spark by [ profile] aliassmith
Searingly hot dance club frotting.  You know when someone posts the fic you're craving just at the right time?  U to the N to the F.

I think there were some other things I wanted to say, but I need to go lie down now.
the_deep_magic: A nightmare inexplicably torn from the pages of Kafka! (Lee Pace in eyeliner = invalid argument)
Okay, anyone who has not yet read [ profile] zjofierose's [ profile] rpf_big_bang fic, Wind at Dawn (Noble Things), DO IT.

I would say "drop everything and read it NOW," but I would definitely recommend that you read it a) when you have time to sit down, get away from any distractions, and read the whole thing in one go; and b) where you will not be embarrassed to be found sobbing like a baby.  It's not light reading, but it's so, so worth it.  I can't vouch for its complete historical accuracy, but it feels incredibly authentic, and she does an amazing job of creating the atmosphere of a dismal, seemingly-endless war as well as the hope that Zach and Chris find in each other.

Wee preview of my favorite scene -- don't think it's spoilery, but cutting just in case )

Since this is set against the backdrop of a war, there is naturally a ton of angst, some violence, and then more angst -- do read the warnings/spoilers if you need specifics.  But I am a total weenie and I survived!  I would, however, have [ profile] beedlebarg's telepathy fic from Pintopalooza ready to go for afterwards.  It's my go-to angst antidote (angstidote?)

Hmmm... gonna go leave [ profile] zjofierose a proper comment, then create an "angstidote" tag in my Delicious.

Go read [ profile] ewinfic and [ profile] withthepilot's super-hot BDSM Quincho epic: Making His Mark (aka Falafel).  NOW.  DO IT NOW.  BECAUSE JOHN HAS ~FEELINGS~ AND ZACH HAS A RIDING CROP.
the_deep_magic: (The Pillow Book)
H'okay, so, this is one of my all-time favorite kinks, despite the fact that I haven't really written it.*  It started, as it probably did for many people who have this kink, with the Ewan McGregor movie The Pillow Book (see icon).  Fucking awesome movie, y'all; find a way to see it if you haven't.  Bonus: the movie features bisexual!Ewan, still in the phase of his career where he will drop his pants in a movie at the least provocation.**

But anyway, body writing.  Super-duper hot, and here are some of my faves. 

Fandoms: Star Trek RPS, Harry Potter, LotR RPS, and Star Trek )

I know I have more, but I didn't start tagging or saving URLs until I got into ST, so what I have is a ton of Word docs that my computer doesn't like to search through.  But anyway, this is a start, and I do want to write some of my own very soon.

*My favorite kinks are some of the hardest for me to write.  Maybe it's sort of the you-can't-tickle-yourself principle?  Okay, that sounded dirtier than I intended.
**Only downside to him being cast in the Star Wars prequels -- he made it Big Time in Hollywood and has to keep his pants on now.  Sad Face :o(
