LINKSPAM! I AM A LEAN, MEAN, RECCING MACHING.
Ten things I have enjoyed in the last week.
. If you're not voting, you really should be. Every week writers fulfill a prompt. The prompts are then unveiled anonymously, and readers get to vote for one winner, and one person to get stuffed into the drawers in the Torchwood morgue. The quality of writing is insanely good. Voting is still open until tomorrow, early afternoonish (3pm CST). Don't forget to read the rules!
2. Season of Mists
-- This is a rewrite of what was already a pretty awesome fic, written for Torchwood Big Bang. It's a crossover with The Sandman
, but only in the peripheral -- you really don't need any knowledge of the Sandman
comics to be able to fully understand this. It's a CoE fixit, it's fantastically engaging, and you should totally read it.
3. Yesterday, this
made blow soder out my nose. Also, it's hot. And mildly NSFW. GRRROWR.
4. Nothing Can Happen More Beautiful
is just gorgeously put together. Warning: discussion of suicide, has the potential to be major-league triggery.
has this awesome 7 parter, Plastic Dolls Floating Across the Atlantic, Toy Soldiers Crowding the Pacific
. It's complete, she's posting one part daily (the second part went live earlier today). There's an intriguing mystery here, some terrific OCs, and if you comment-spam her she might continue with it. FLY, MY MONKEYS. FLY.
6. THE BIG BANG. OMG. *flaily hands*. I loved the color schemes. I... loved this whole season. With the exception of the silurian eps, and victory of the daleks to which I give a hearty "meh". I LOVE AMY. TIMES A WHOLE FREAKING LOT. I'm... trying really hard not to spoil anything here, so there'll probably be a whole new post so that I can spoil at will.
7. Just marathoned through the last four episodes of White Collar. OMG, I love White Collar. IT STARTS AGAIN IN JULY. omg.
8. Caught up on some of my comic books. "Red Robin" is making me love Tim Drake again. They're writing him a little more balanced now, and the more I look back at the last two story arcs, the more I realize his kind of insane behavior as a reaction to grief. The fact that he's beginning to rebound has greatly enhanced my appreciation for the author. He's starting to sound like himself again. His scenes with Super Boy in this last issue are tempting me to pick up Teen Titans again, but I've been burned by that title so many times now that I'm a little gun shy.
is a Jack/Ianto fiction contest community. Every Sunday/Monday a prompt is posted. Submissions are due on Thursday, voting happens, and a winner is announced on Sunday. It's a cool community that could really use more participants. :)
