marcicat: (life changing business card)

Apparently I’m in a very non-committal space right now, because I keep reading things and not bookmarking them.

So I went checking back to see if I’d ever recced to dwell is to die, by FeoplePeel
Quill’s Guardians are a group of reformed criminals at best; save the literal empath they’ve recently outfitted themselves with, Kraglin shouldn’t have to worry about hashing out his feelings with practical strangers.

And I haven’t (I don’t think), but I did find two other fics that I have no memory of but enjoyed reading (re-reading?) off an old bookmarks list.

Living Arrangements, by scifislasher
“Kendrix, please,” he protested. “Hacking is such a loaded word.”

Poems, Prayers, & Promises, by Cyanne
“And don’t think I didn’t notice that you managed to miss the official proclamation. Good thing I wasn’t planning on calling on the Senior Staff to say a few words seeing as the heads of two of my departments were busy eloping at the time.”

It’s a story for me! I love everything about it! starandrea is the best!

good choices (snacks in detention), by starandrea

“Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says not to tell anyone.”

(Also, I love the idea of the team bonding with all the rest of the detention kids, because I really just want everyone to have a nice time and be okay.)

Because sometimes I just want to read about the Rogue One crew all being okay and teaming up to rescue Jyn’s daughter.

Baby, You Need To Come Home, by aewgliriel

“I’m sorry I stole your blaster.”

He let out a pained half-laugh. “Which time?”

marcicat: thanks, laura! (owl strut)

So, it’s raining? And I searched for the word ‘rain’ in my pinboard bookmarks, and I had no idea I’d once bookmarked a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ AU. But lo!

smells like leather and rain, by haribo

(They meet for the first time when she’s in ripped jeans she had to rip herself because they got caught in a fence, he’s in heavy black boots that look warm, and she steals from him. He lets her.)

Somehow this week I stumbled back into reading Labyrinth fic, which is always a surprise. And I realized I had apparently never bookmarked that one where Sarah becomes the librarian at Hogwarts, which was also a surprise.

Of Dreamers and Journeys, by Mystical_Magician

The Labyrinth changed Sarah in more ways than one. Seven years later she finds herself the librarian at Hogwarts. And she is so much more than the Muggle they believe her to be.

Between Stimulus and Response (There Is A Space), by blackidyll

My first thought after I finished reading this fic was ‘I enjoyed that so much more than I thought I would!’

Plus, cats! (PS the cats are briefly in danger but are totally okay!)

“What the hell.” It’s not a question, but Q figures the way she’s phrased it works well enough: What the hell are you doing, and what the hell are you doing here.

Wonder Woman fic!

i don’t know where i’m going but i’m on my way, by alchemystique

There are so many great fics out there right now, it’s amazing — a wealth of choices. Gotta love Steve heckling Bruce Wayne about the bat thing, though.

“This is crazy, you all are crazy, and I have no idea what you’re trying to accomplish but if Diana thinks you’re worth her time you gotta have something going for you. And speaking of Diana, I always thought her armor was out there, but you fight crime dressed up as a bat, pal, that’s weird.”

marcicat: (hershey kiss)

And now that it really *is* Friday, another fic rec! (Huge thanks to bluemeridian, whose pinboard page brings great joy!)

I’m waiting through the weekend before I start in with the Wonder Woman fics, since most are full of spoilers. So here’s the Guardians of the Galaxy, visiting Peter’s family on Earth:

guess who just got back today, by irnan

“All right,” said Louisa sharply. “That’s enough, this a family dinner –”

“Well yeah, that’s why we’re fighting,” said Peter.

marcicat: (froggy heart)

Since yesterday was Star Wars day, how about some happy Star Wars fics? (I have probably recced all of these before, but re-reads are always fun!)

things to keep you warm and dry, by wordslinging

“If you’ve got time to speculate about my social life, you’ve got time to find something useful to do,” Poe returns.

this is a day of rest, by notcaycepollard

“You two,” he says when he gets his breath back, and he’s pretty sure he’s not imagining the smug look that they both give him in return. “All ‘what’s a rest day’ and ‘oh Poe, can we sleep in your bed’. I see how it is.”

i really really (really really) really like you, by notcaycepollard

“He called me buddy this morning,” Finn offers. “What does that even mean.”

tell all the truth (but tell it slant), by susiecarter

“It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often? Doesn’t help as much as you might think.”

(My favorite thing about this fic is imagining the epic group text between Lois, Diana, and Martha (and probably Alfred) that must have been happening behind the scenes.)

Put on a Mask (and Fight!), by writeonclara

Author Summary:
Finn is the defector gone superhero. Rey is the ultra psychic who may or may not use her powers to hustle pool. Poe is the intrepid journalist (or sometimes: bait). Together, they fight crime!

(Or Finn and Rey do. Poe mostly gets himself kidnapped and mouths off at his captors. It’s a work in progress.)

Bonus rec, because it reminded me of that Inception fic and I found it on AO3:

Blast Boxers, by Allothi

“Forger!” Arthur says, because he’s heard that’s the way supervillains like to be addressed. “In five years, every plan you’ve had to take over Inception City has ended in abysmal failure. What makes you think today will be different?”

Thanks to starandrea for this rec!

you’re like a drug to me, a luxury, my sugar and gold (and you don’t even know), by moosicaldreamz

“Are we ever going to talk about how your parents think we’re dating?”

(PS: This story is about Kim and Trini — which is awesome! — but I also love that based on the movie, that question could be from any of them, about any of them.)

marcicat: (heart wings)

What is this? *Andrea wrote about sneaking snacks into detention? It’s the Power Rangers fic of my heart!

this is totally what happened (which is not the actual title of this story by starandrea)

“Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says not to tell anyone.”

marcicat: (pacman stealth)

This weekend I learned that starandrea has never seen Beauty and the Beast (the animated one). And then I brought up fanfic Beauty and the Beast AUs, which led me to go find this one and rec it:

tie your napkin ’round your neck, cherie, by magneticwave

“Scott skids into the door breathlessly and shouts, “THERE’S A GIRL IN THE CASTLE,” and promptly brains himself on one of the casserole dishes.”

This is the quote I always think of when I think of B&B AUs. Jackson is the beast, Lydia is the heroine, but it’s from Stiles’ POV (aka the teapot) so it’s a lot about him and his developing romance with Derek, who’s a wheelbarrow. What’s not to love?

The Last Poem of Jedha, by schweinsty

The one where Bodhi was a poet, and so was his sister. I was going to say ‘this story made me cry,’ but pretty much everything does these days. It’s the story of Jedha, and its people, and how war creeps up on you.

“Kindness and love are the two most important things in the galaxy,” she says. “Don’t ever let them take that from you.”

I’ve been spending a lot of time yesterday and today re-reading my nanowrimo novel from last year. I mean, it definitely reads like it’s a nano novel, but it’s also basically 50,000 words of me giving myself a post-election pep talk. Which I really needed this week.

“We’re ready enough, because we’re here, and there’s things to be done, and we’ll take it one second at a time until we can take it a minute at a time, and we’ll work our way back up. What else is there?”
-Mitchell, in Downtime Curve

Because sometimes you dedicate a not-insignificant portion of your week to reading over 250,000 words about velociraptors. And then you look back and think ‘what have I done? how did this happen?’

Raptors in the Rainforest, by DisaLanglois

He had always known that the first bullet the raptors met would be the last firearm they ignored.

Begins directly after ‘Jurassic World’ and follows a long arc. Series of three fics, all complete.

Solid Copy, by thefourthvine

A Yuletide 2016 story! For The Losers (movie-verse). Team hijinx, banter, and bonus telepathy.

Includes this perfect exchange!

“How can you not find the ocean relaxing?” Cougar asked, like that was their main problem here.

“It’s full of fish,” Jensen explained. “It’s full of fish and some of them are sharks and some of them are whales and any of them can touch you at any time.”

Cougar stared at him, and Jensen was pretty sure he could actually feel some of Cougar’s astonishment. “You get shot at. For a living,” Cougar reminded him.

“Yes, but not by fish,” Jensen said, and he felt like he’d made his point perfectly, but Cougar was visibly unimpressed.

An easy one! I only wrote two fics this year: the Star Wars story that wouldn’t end, and my nanowrimo story.

1. This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger, by marcicat

Summary: Han shows up as a ghost, and starts to realize he missed a lot more than he thought in those fifteen years he was rattling around the galaxy.

“Han Solo!” she exclaimed, just like the old days. “And guest,” she added, frowning at Ben. “And guest of guest,” she said finally, switching her gaze to Phasma. “You, I think, have better things to do. You can go.”

2. Downtime Curve, by marcicat

Summary: After the world is saved, what happens next?

“We’re ready enough, because we’re here, and there’s things to be done, and we’ll take it one second at a time until we can take it a minute at a time, and we’ll work our way back up. What else is there?”
