HP Recs: RSG Rec Post #2

Oh fanfic, how lovely it is to roll around in you.

If you stop in to read any of these [community profile] rs_games entries, please remember to vote! Thanks ever so much.

Title: Among Mortal Men
Rating: Mature
Warnings: Canon character death (happy ending!) (ish), non-linear narrative, mental health issues, non-explicit sex, canon-typical themes, canon-compliant
Word Count: 9,300
Summary: Now, then, and always.

Why You Should Read It: I read the first 300 words and immediately opened my rec doc because I knew this fic was going to destroy me and rebuild me in the best ways. For me, Remus/Sirius fics should be about at least one of two things: the joy of love and the heartbreak of loss. This has both in a canon-candy shell and is one of the ways I most love to devour Remus/Sirius content.

Non-linear storytelling is the best in the right context, and this is entirely the right context. I'm kind of in love with this fic that spans the whole of Sirius's life and the one relationship most important to him. Make sure you read this one with some tissues (all tears are entirely worth it).

What are you waiting for? Read it!

Title: In the Bed
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: language, scene of a sexual nature
Word Count: 12,000
Summary: Left to his own devices the summer after the prank, Sirius crafts an unusual gift to mend his relationship with Remus.

Why You Should Read It: Yeah, so Sirius decides the way to apologize to Remus for The Prank is to give him a book of art he can enter. Like. ♥ ♥ ♥ The description of the paint (specifically how Remus looks as painted by Van Gogh) is enough that you should read this fic. It's so clear how much Sirius loves him from the descriptions—such a well-written point of view—that you should read this fic. And the ending? The ending is so good that you should read this fic.

Link: https://rs-games.dreamwidth.org/157037.html


Title: Stargazing
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Word Count: ART REC
Summary: Sirius stargazing with Remus in the Gryffindor room window seat.

Why You Should Read It: It's a wholesome and lovely piece of art that makes up for some of the angst I just recced prior to it. ♥

Link: https://rs-games.dreamwidth.org/164671.html


Title: Hiraeth
Rating: R
Warnings: violence, a reference to suicide (in the middle of battle), angst, AU
Word Count: 5,000
Summary: Hiraeth, noun. Welsh. A feeling of yearning to return to a place that may never have existed. An earnest desire. During the first rise of Voldemort, Remus gets into the spying game. No one told him it would be quite this difficult to lie for a living.

Why You Should Read It: This fic is swell, but I'll tell you I kept forgetting it was AU which made reading at times a little awkward. But you will know when you read it. It's AU. IT'S AU!

I really enjoyed the pants off this one. The bits with Remus spying are so well done, as is the tension between the Marauders. This also has one of best dueling scenes I've read in recent memory.

HP Recs: RSG Rec Post #1

  • Oct. 14th, 2017 at 3:15 PM
theemdash: (HP Remus/Sirius Tie)
Since I'm participating as a writer this year, I can't vote, but I can direct people to some of the most fabulous offerings (I've read) in this year's [community profile] rs_games. (Also, you can vote, and you should.) I probably won't make it through everything, but I'm reading as much as I can and will be reccing in digest posts more or less each week.

Since this is the Remus/Sirius Games, you can assume all fics have Remus/Sirius as the main pairing.

Title: Alone in Space
Rating: R
Warnings: some scenes of a sexual nature; Space AU
Word Count: 7,500
Summary: Sirius smiled but it was a sad smile. "You know I'm always late."

Why You Should Read It: It's a very subtle shift to a sci-fi setting, but once the story gets rolling, it's totally worth it. The hook and the ending are fantastic and I could totally read a beefed up version of this. (Like, I would read 50K of this story/world.)

Link: https://rs-games.dreamwidth.org/158365.html


Title: You Were My Spring, My Summer Too
Rating: PG
Warnings: Grief
Word Count: 3,500
Summary: When Sirius receives news that things have gone very wrong on an assignment, he heads north to bring Remus home.

Why You Should Read It: Hot damn, for such a short fic, this one packs it all in. Not a word is wasted building this First War moment in which a grief-stricken Sirius goes in search of Remus. The prose is beautiful, the emotions visceral, and Sirius's search is gut-wrenching in the best way.

Link: https://rs-games.dreamwidth.org/159360.html


Title: THE SUN ALWAYS COMES
Rating: G
Warnings: none
Word Count: ART REC
Summary: Sometimes it is too much, but there are always reasons to keep on going.

Why You Should Read It: Okay, listen, the emotion here is stellar, but I can't get over the mischievous face given to James in the second picture. I live for this face. Also the third picture with Remus and Sirius is ♥ ♥ ♥

Link: https://rs-games.dreamwidth.org/160714.html


Title: Just Smoke
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: language, suicidal thoughts implied, mild drug use
Word Count: 10,000
Summary: Two very different impromptu trips to Amsterdam. One before and one after.
Or: The boys do touristy things in Amsterdam while Sirius is mid-breakdown, Remus is very much Not in Love with Him, James is keen to get high, and Peter just wants to see some naked ladies.

Why You Should Read It: I AM HAVING SOME FEELINGS. Boys not talking about their feelings but still having to deal with their feelings is one of my very favorite things. This is such a Marauder story while still revolving almost entirely around Remus and Sirius's relationship (and one of my favorite bits of Sirius's backstory). It is beautiful and fun and dramatic and emotional and perfect. Yes. This is perfect.

I still have 10 tabs open in my browser, plus new fics going up every day, so expect another rec post in about a week!

New Stargate

  • Jul. 20th, 2017 at 10:19 PM
theemdash: (M Squee)
I'm not sure that I really have the words for this.

There's going to be more Stargate. A 10-episode digital series. That's exciting news enough, but...

It's going to be about Catherine Langford's early years.

It's going to be FEMALE-LEAD STARGATE.

Look at that beautiful thumbnail of A WOMAN in front of the Stargate:


FEMALE-LEAD. STARGATE. CATHERINE. LANGFORD.

AND THAT MEANS IT WILL ALSO BE A PERIOD PIECE.

I AM LIVING!!!

ETA: Continuing to add icing to this delicious cake: the director is a woman.

Two Things About SG-1 Season 10

  • Jul. 15th, 2017 at 12:37 PM
theemdash: (SG-1 Vala)
I am finally up to Season 10 in my rewatch and I have two things to say:

1. Did I possibly never watch my Season 10 DVDs? Because this menu doesn't look familiar. Season 10 is the only one that I have digitally so I have watched it A TON but that also means it's possible I never watched the DVDs. HUH.

2. Am I the only one who's bothered that Teal'c notices there's no birds in "Morpheus" and Sam asks him to confirm when the conversation was the other way around in "The First Commandment"?

"The First Commandment"
TEAL'C: Is there a problem, Doctor Carter?
CARTER: No birds.*

"Morpheus"
DANIEL: What is it?
TEAL'C: Birds.
CARTER: What birds?
TEAL'C: My point exactly. I first noticed in the village and now here in the forest as well—an unusual stillness. There are no birds, or any other animal life for that matter.*

While I can come up with some in-world explanations for this, I'm bothered that Amanda Tapping's reaction in "Morpheus" seems to indicate that she hadn't noticed the lack of birds. I feel like even with the added responsibility of being co-command of SG-1 she still would have noticed the birds. (And yes, I realize this is a potential continuity error 9 years apart.)

*Transcripts snagged from SG-1 Solutions

3. Actually, I have a third thing to say: It still surprises me every time Daniel is arguing in favor of putting Vala on SG-1 that he likens her situation to Teal'c and not himself. Yes, Teal'c and Vala have things in common being aliens and potentially having conflicts of loyalty, but Daniel had to argue for his place on SG-1, too. Moreover he was arguing to look for his wife, and Vala is—kind of, if not explicitly—searching for her husband and child. You'd think Daniel would see that connection. (Of course he could be willfully trying to not identify with her.)

Anyway, I still love SG-1. From the start to the finish.

Citizen. Joe. RRRAARGH

  • Jun. 27th, 2017 at 9:01 AM
theemdash: (M Annoyed)
I stalled in my SG-1 rewatch for a bit (my Season 8 discs are janky), but finally picked it up again. I'm on "Citizen Joe" this morning. I hate this episode but it's been a long time since I watched it, so I thought I'd try to give it a chance.

...

NOPE.

Everything I used to hate about this episode I still hate. It's basically the writers giving the finger to all the fans while also introducing one of The Dumbest Ideas that changes the make up of the last six and a half years of the show. I'm pretty chill about ret-cons that add something to the mythology or characterization, but this conflicts with Jack's characterization and I just do not buy that Jack "There's Nothing Cruvus With Me" O'Neill was totally sanguine when he started getting flashes of the life of an Indiana barber. Especially not Season-2-era O'Neill who fucking flipped out every time an alien shoved something weird in his head. No. No no no no no.

And Charlene, Joe's wife? OH. MY. GOD. I had forgotten she was the Female Fan Surrogate and uttered the line, "It's just that personally I like stories that are more about inter-personal relations and a little less to do with things blowing up." It's such a passive-aggressive, childish swipe at the female fanbase of SG-1. There's one thing about poking fun at yourself and another thing about not only poking fun at your fanbase, but taking their legitimate commentary and turning it into a dismissible joke. I mean, it's not like SG-1 doesn't have episodes about inter-personal relations, what else would you call an episode like "Abyss"? Or "The Gamekeeper"? How about "Grace"? Or what about "Meridian"? (Also, please note that by the time we're seeing season 3 recaps—season 3—Joe is all romanticizing Jack's relationship with Laira, which is to say THEIR MALE FAN SURROGATE WANTS INTER-PERSONAL STORIES TOO.)

*DEEEEEEEP BREATH*

I really hate this episode.

Prompts/Fic Requests Needed

  • Jun. 10th, 2017 at 8:13 AM
theemdash: (SG-1 Jack/Daniel Touchies)
Next week I'm taking the [community profile] getyourwordsout challenge 7 Days, 7 Stories to write a rough draft of a story every day. I'm looking for some flash fiction or drabble prompts to intersperse with the longer stories I already have planned. I am likely to write at least 3 during the week, though I'll certainly entertain more ideas! I have a lot of trouble coming up with short ideas on my own, so prompting seems like the way to go.

I'll need ideas to carry me through June 17, so any comments before June 17 are right on time.

I'd love to get prompts for:
Stargate SG-1 Jack/Daniel or gen Team/friendship
Harry Potter Remus/Sirius or Teddy/James Sirius or gen Marauders
Original fic ideas for sci-fi, steampunk, cyberpunk, solarpunk, pretty much any 'punk

Leave a good prompt and you might inspire me to write:
Fullmetal Alchemist
Saiyuki
Firefly
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Star Wars


Thanks in advance for any prompts left!

Sad News

theemdash: (Daniel Home)
While she hasn't been active on LJ/DW in a number of years, I wanted to make sure friends and fans knew that [personal profile] sorcha_gaia passed away last night. Her mother informed her friends that it happened during a medically induced coma.

I first met Sorcha in person at DragonCon 2006, where over a panel table we discovered that we both knew each other's fanfic. (The exact moment was someone asking about fanfic on Livejournal and I mentioned my username, which then prompted Sorcha to flail and identify herself, and then we were all fangirling each other.)

Sorcha worked with us on [community profile] fandom_grammar. She wrote excellent Jack/Daniel fic. I wrestled her into helping me write Stargate Trivia questions. She always made me laugh. We rolled our eyes at each other, got frustrated, forgave, and then bonded again over Daniel Jackson. I will miss you, my friend.

Here's a few more newly archived fics. As before ALL fics have been polished.
★'d fics are personal favorites.

The drabble collection here is technically Daniel/Cameron, but two of the stories also have Jack/Daniel because Daniel has some history here. (Also because I'm obsessed, okay?)

Stargate: SG-1
The Next Best Thing, NC-17, Jack/Daniel, Daniel/Vala, angst, dream sex, masturbation, fix-it, Season 10, missing scenes for "Unending" (9,100 words)
this is way more Jack/Daniel than I remember, so take the second pairing with a grain of salt; also this is my headcanon explanation for THAT RANT Daniel gives Vala

Bruised, R, Jack/Daniel, angst, hurt/comfort, blow job, bruises, no kissing (1,130 words)
in addition to being my contribution to the trope of bjs in storage closets, this fic was once plagiarized for Torchwood fandom!

Sacrifice, NC-17, Jack/Daniel, angst, hurt/comfort, smut, heartbreak (2,440 words)
I remember writing this fic and going, "WHAT THE HELL IS HURT/COMFORT?!" not realizing that I wrote h/c all the freaking time


Stargate: SG-1: Daniel/Cameron Collection
Even, PG, Daniel/Cameron, pre-slash, moving, episode related, "Avalon" (100 words)
ah, a hopeful beginning to Daniel/Cameron

Glance, PG-13, Daniel/Cameron, Jack/Daniel, observant!Cameron, season 10 (100 words)
I really love that Cameron is smart enough to figure it out and it just surprises him, that's all

Healthy Breakfast, PG-13, Daniel/Cameron, Jack/Daniel, angsty, Season 10, episode tag "The Shroud" (570 words)
this time I'm mean to Daniel (but the solution is a threesome (not in this fic))



Angel
An Echo, A Ghost, A Whisper, PG-13, Illyria, Wesley/Illyria (unrequited), angst, frustration at humanity, episode related, post-"Time Bomb" (830 words)
of all my BtVS and Angel fics, this is my favorite


Fullmetal Alchemist
Obviously There's Something On Your Chest, R, Havoc, Roy/Ed, humor, crack, so much crack, genderswap, (3,020 words)
this whole fic is built around a pun and I love it

The Status Is Not Quo

  • Feb. 7th, 2017 at 11:25 AM
theemdash: (SG-1 Sam)
When I watched "Tin Man" for the first time I had a moment when I thought, "What if they're just robots for the rest of the series?" Which would be a bold decision to make in the first season, certainly, but it is the start of a fun little game of imagining SG-1 continuing without major changes reversed. Essentially, it is a game of not returning to the status quo. So, let's imagine for a bit:

"Fragile Balance" — Mini-Jack is not a clone and SG-1 continues led by a 15-year-old version of Colonel O'Neill. Goa'uld laugh in the face of SG-1 more often than usual, but a 15-year-old Jack has a much easier time breaking out of binders and crawling through ventilation shafts. The only downside? It's much harder to push Daniel out of the way to get to the Ancient head-sucker, so Daniel is the one frozen at the end of "Lost City."

"Holiday" — Daniel and Machello aren't switched back because Machello's body dies before they finish, and Machello joins SG-1 to fight in Daniel's name. Machello fights extra hard to win Sha're back and probably never confesses to her that he's not Daniel because that's a lot to explain in the little screen time they share before she dies. "Legacy" is entirely different (and much shorter). Also Daniel never Ascends so Jack probably dies in "Abyss," Teal'c dies during "The Changeling," and the galaxy is lost by "Full Circle." Um, this AU doesn't seem to be working out too well, is it? Let's try for something happier.

"In the Line of Duty" — Sam remains a host to Jolinar and Jolinar joins SG-1. Naturally they met the Tok'ra much sooner, and Sam and Martouf have a canon relationship. Sam/Jolinar also have a much easier time navigating and reconstructing Goa'uld technology, so the F-302 program moves along much faster. PS "Divide and Conquer" doesn't exist in this timeline.

Okay, what other AU timelines can you come up with?

New Digs: Fandom Grammar

[community profile] fandom_grammar has a new home on DreamWidth. If grammar or writing is your thing, please give it a follow and tell your friends.

Fandom Grammar has always existed as a resource not only for fan writers, but for writers in general and for fans who have English as a second language. If you have a question about the English language—or colloquial differences in regional uses—please feel free to ask about it! We're always looking for new questions to answer. We're also open to fandom-specific questions such as capitalization rules for specific fandoms or how fandom-specific words are used in context. (Don't worry if we don't know your fandom, most of the grammarians are research monkeys and we're up to the challenge.)

Our typical schedule includes answering questions on Mondays, interspersed with additional content on Fridays.

I'm excited for our future on DW. We're approaching 10 years of Fandom Grammar, so we're looking to make a new home and build a foundation to last another 10 years.

Ra with an Ancient Tablet?

  • Feb. 5th, 2017 at 9:14 PM
theemdash: (Daniel Huh)
Friends, I'm watching "Full Circle" and I have a question for you: What was Ra doing with an Ancient tablet?

Actually I have another question: Are there any fics that explore this? Because this? This is VERY INTERESTING. Ra gets largely glossed over since he died in the movie, so the idea that he might have been researching Ancients—or even knew enough to look for Atlantis—is very interesting. Also, that sheds some new thoughts on what other adventures the Moebius SG-1 team might have been having in Ancient Egypt (because that is still a thing I think about a lot actually).

So, anyway, thoughts about this? Fics about this? We must discuss.

I was feeling antsy so I went through a significant number of short fics in the last couple days. Since all of the links are for micro-fiction, I tossed in a few more than usual, including two drabble collections—(1) Daniel/Sha're and (2) Daniel Gen Fic.

As before ALL fics have been polished.
★'d fics are personal favorites.

Stargate: SG-1: Daniel Jackson Collection
Fair Power, PG, Daniel, angst, episode related, "Fair Game" (100 words)
a very early drabble, which you can tell because it's in 1st person

Being Daniel Jackson, PG, Daniel, team, friendship, episode related, "Fallen" (500 words)
I'm partial to Arrom and should write more fics with him

Role Model, PG, Daniel, Jack, angst, friendship, episode tag, "Prototype" (230 words)
the last line kills me and I wrote it

Stargate: SG-1: Daniel/Sha're Collection
Not Like That, PG, Amaunet, Daniel/Sha're, Season 1, "Children of the Gods," something of the host remains (100 words)
Sha're has a shitty deal and I should write about her more

Time to Wake, PG, Daniel/Sha're, Season 3, pre-"Forever in a Day," dreams, waking up (100 words)
ha ha, I'm so fucking mean


Buffy the Vampire Slayer
One Way Ticket, PG, Giles, angst, friendship, episode related, "Tabula Rasa" (740 words)
Giles as father figure who doesn't know what he's doing is still great

Good Night's Sleep, PG, Buffy, Willow, friendship, humor, loud neighbors, Season 4 (500 words)
I had forgotten this fic—it's pretty funny!


Firefly
Nekkid, PG, Mal, humor, episode tag "Trash" (100 words)
short and sweet

Not Out of Gas, PG, Wash, Zoe, humor, farting (110 words)
this is hands down my most mature and sophisticated fic

Dinosaur Envy, PG, Wash, Zoe, humor, dinosaur (780 words)
I adore Wash's dinosaurs (and his allegories)

Here's a few more newly archived fics. As before ALL fics have been polished.
★'d fics are personal favorites.

Stargate: SG-1
Confused Colonels, Disgruntled Archaeologists, and Other Problems of Temporal Distortions, NC-17, Jack/Daniel, Season 4, "Window of Opportunity," established relationship, clueless!Jack, annoyed!Daniel, sex against the Stargate (4,100 words)
this combines my obsession with memory with Jack and Daniel's obsession with the stargate

Four Something in the Morning, PG-13, Jack & Daniel, Season 8, friendship (technically), early morning, Daniel's birthday, the trouble with resurrection (1,670 words)
this was about the time I got really into writing Jack

The Long Way Home, PG-13, Daniel/Sha're, Jack/Daniel, angst, grief, Daniel solo 'gating, pre-series, season 3, post-"Forever in a Day" (3,860 words)
this is another one in my top five favorite fics I've ever written


Harry Potter
Why Remus No Longer Makes Buns in His Oven, PG-13, Remus/Sirius, James, Peter, humor, crack!fic, technically not mpreg (2,260 words)
this is another one in my top five favorite fics I've ever written—possibly my favorite; I mean I'm having a hard time not posting blinking arrows around this link

Gravid, R, Remus/Sirius, angst, breakup, gut-punch (2,110 words)
bring on the emotional pain!


Fullmetal Alchemist
Porcelain Men, NC-17, Roy/Ed, angst, sex, (almost) no talking, (1,360 words)
this is the ship that still makes me wish Ed were older (but I swear I meant for him to be 18 in this fic)

Rule Number 23, PG, Roy, Maes, friendship, humor, Roy is the punchline (100 words)
I wish I'd written more in this fandom (mostly Maes because the is the best)


Saiyuki
Nightmares, PG-13, Hakkai/Sanzo, angst, nightmares, rainy night (400 words)
for my "main pairing" being a different pairing, this is almost the only pairing I wrote!

Here's a few more newly archived fics. As before ALL fics have been polished (some a little more than others).
★'d fics are personal favorites.

I've got another collection in this batch—this time Daniel/Vala drabbles and short fiction. (I'm working up to the Jack/Daniel humor one because OMG most of my drabbles/flash fiction are funny Jack/Daniel stories.)

Stargate: SG-1

Daniel in denial is my thing in this ship apparently

seriously, writers just recycle ideas that get stuck in their heads

Who Needs Directions?, PG-13, Daniel/Vala, humor, season 10-ish (170 words)
smutty minds required for this to be funny
