Roslin's my probably favorite BSG character and I love 5 things fic, so the combination is a really happy yay! for me.

Because, wow. It's brilliant and beautiful and Scully and Cuddy do just seem to fit together and [ profile] leiascully manages to do that without ignoring Mulder and House and the complicated relationships the two woman have with them.

Always Get What you Want by [ profile] leiascully

There weren't enough women in the profession to begin with, and fewer still that Cuddy could actually talk to, but something in the way this woman held her shoulders made Cuddy feel that Scully knew about loneliness and the value of conversation. It had been long enough that Cuddy wasn't even aching for sex, just words and the way mouths shaped them and the flutter of gesturing hands in low light.

So I have this folder filled with links to maybe a hundred fics that I enjoyed and meant to eventually rec but never got around to. And because I'm currently going through something of an organization phase, I figure it's about time to start clearing out the folder. And so, my first rec is a Clark/Lex Smallville fic in which Lex writes Clark a letter. Beyond quotes from said epistle there's very little Lex, but there's a lot of Clark as a result and that's always of the good.

Of Epistles and Epiphanies by Nifra Idril

There is no salutation. It begins like this:

I want you to know that I am not of sound mind, and that if I were, I would never have written this, and having written (or rather, being in the process of writing it) I already fully regret the impulse. However, having started, I can’t turn back.

Which is just so typically Lex that Clark chokes on his coffee as he sits in front of his computer, reading his morning email before class. In the background, Clark’s roommate Devon whispers sweet nothings to whoever he’s sharing a bed with today, and it sounds like the pair of them are getting ready for another round of theatrically loud sex on the top bunk.

Clark prints the email out, and reads the rest of it outside, twice. Then he folds it in two very, very carefully, fits it into his wallet, and goes to class.

Damn, I'm hitting jackpot on [ profile] crack_van today. I switched fandoms when I had a little craving for some X-Men Movieverse fanfic and almost immediately ran across this little gem (Ave, Verum Corpus by loneastronomer). A fic that totally hit my Rogue love with this part:

He doesn't have the time to feel guilty; the memories are already fading. He grasps at them desperately. “The song,” he repeats. “What's it called?”

“I don't know,” she says. He can smell her defeat, shares it. “I hear it sometimes. At Christmas. And singing,” she adds, “Beautiful singing.” She looks away.

His memories, Logan thinks, and spends thirty seconds consumed by self-pity and jealousy. Then Marie says, “I'm an intruder in my own head,” and he hates himself a little bit for making her feel that way.

And now that I've had occasion to notice the author, I wonder if it's the same author as loneastronomer on

Was browsing [ profile] crack_van while waiting for the series premieres of Private Practice and Dirty Sexy Money to be posted on EZTV and a rec for this little fic - Closed Circle - was the first entry on the page. Normally I'm not one much for the little vignettes, what with being more about the long plotty fics, but this section got me:

Rose wakes with her Doctor.

She is old and she has always been in love. Her fingers trace the lines of his palm. She draws constellations.

Some spark in his eyes stays the same no matter which body he wears.

I just finished Running Scared which is exactly almost what I wanted in a Dawn/Wesley fic and why I've spent the past two days wading through all the crap on Lolita in Leather because, oh, it's now all so worth it. And now I want a Dawn/Wesley ensemble fic really really badly. Am off to do more wading with a spring in my step and hope in my heart.

Yikes! I have so much to say. Been in South Bend for the past week visiting the grandparents and old ND friends. Saw MM who looks great and I just adore and went to the Green Bay game with DS and her current roomie to see VA. The game was great fun, and I bought BH some Packers souvenirs. Was hit on by some guy at the public library who just called me - I really need to become more comfortable with simply blowing people off because ewwww, creepy.

So many season finales!

First off, Greek. How much do I love this show? )

Next up is My Boys. Which I know isn't very good, but is getting better, people! )

Then we have Psych. Which wasn't a season finale but needs to be mentioned )

On an entirely different Psych note, I just read my first Psych fic. It was written by Regann, the ever fantastic author of Heart Over Mind (Harry Potter, Snape/Hermione) and am so happy. Don't know why I never considered the idea that Chief Vick and Henry Spencer probably have some sort of history.

I still have to do The Closer, but I'm tired and my fingers hurt, so I'll save it for later. Just want to say (again), Where The Hell Is Pope? He barely had a line in the entire damn episode. Am so angry.

Spent an obscenely long time over the past week reading [ profile] sam_storyteller's fic Heroes: The Hiatus Continues, which, despite it's seriously lacking title, is awesome. And now I really want some more good and long Claude/Peter fic, but can't seem to find any anywhere. Everything I've run across is short character pieces and all I want is plot.

On an entirely different note, am going to SB tomorrow to see the grandparents, the mother and the few ND friends that I have and DS and I may go up to Green Bay to catch the Packers/Eagles game. Should be interesting, especially now that we can all legally go bar hopping.

I also watched the last 4 Kyle XY episodes of the season and am still mulling them over. My thoughts so far go something like this:

Spoilers ahoy, Matey! )

Oh my God. Just finished In Between Days and have no words. It's just brilliant and dark without being dark and subtle and stripped. Every word's there for a reason and it all comes together so perfectly by the end.

Author's summary is "AmbiguouslyTrustworthy!Snape kidnaps ClinicallyDepressed!Harry to keep him safe, but nothing is quite what it seems." And that basically sums it up. Snape takes Harry from the Dursley's, gives him chores and menial tasks to do, casts a few Unforgivables, is cryptic and vague and manages to fit in some real/y hot sex between it all.

I heart. And now I need to sleep for Auto has work tomorrow.
