fic rec Friday

Friday, March 18th, 2016

The Cyborg Arm Job, by copperbadge The Leverage crew run into a new friend, find some buried treasure, and fight some Nazis. It’s a pretty good day. Aw, they’re so great! Leverage OT3 with bonus Bucky Barnes. Perfect Friday fic. I particularly liked the “fake FBI agent” conversation! “Oh, the FBI’s giving you grief?” Hardison […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, May 4th, 2015

This is one of those memorable quotes that never really works out loud, so even though it pops into my head at odd moments of the day, I try to keep it to myself. It’s from that fic (I thought it was a yuletide fic, but I could only find it on tumblr) with the […]

Monday memorable quote

Monday, March 30th, 2015

Okay, this was another ‘went searching and couldn’t find it’ quote: there was a Magnificent Seven ATF fic where I swear Chris said the line, “If there’s one thing I won’t tolerate in this office it’s intolerance!” I can’t find it, although google now thinks I’m really interested in workplace conflict seminars. Still, it deserves […]

good times

Tuesday, March 24th, 2015

I have been having a great time ::cough:: at work ::cough:: working my way through all my pinboard tags. I mean, it’s taking a while, but having an AO3 page up on your computer is a lot less obviously non-work-related than, say, a seven and a half minute youtube video of the Mission Impossible: Ghost […]

I would read it

Saturday, July 27th, 2013

My town sends out a weekly email, right? Every week, at the end, there’s a link to the local Community Action Partnership, and the headline says “Pregnant? New Baby? CAP Can Help!” And every week, I think, ‘Wouldn’t that make a great Captain America fic?’

I just really like crossovers.

Friday, March 9th, 2012

At some point I watched ‘The Losers,’ mostly because the pics of Chris Evans’ character pulling out a crossbow were just too funny not to have context for. But now I really want to read a story where Bucky Barnes from ‘Captain America’ runs into Jensen from ‘The Losers,’ and they’re both like, “wow, you […]

fic rec o’ the day

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

By The People, or How Reality Television Did Away With Campaign Ads, by Sam Starbuck In which an ad exec wonders why people get more excited about reality tv shows than presidential elections, and gets the green light to combine the two. It sounds kind of nice when you put it that way. Imagine one […]

other fics I’ve been reading

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

AVENGERS Team Building Activities, by (not yet revealed) “There are now twenty-five SHIELD agents playing Farmville on the clock.” He looked like that was hurting him in his very soul, and the hurt grew more evident as he went on, through gritted teeth. “Fury says good initiative. Don’t do anything like that again.” Cut To […]

how about ‘Lucifer wears a hoodie and visits JKP’?

Sunday, May 8th, 2011

I have no idea what to write next. So I said, “Hey, *Andrea, what should I write next? I’ll write you a birthday fic!” And then we had the idea to exchange fics — I’ll write a fic for her for her birthday, and she’ll write a fic for me, for her birthday. It makes […]

More Yuletide Notables

Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

Favorite Fandom A Game of You (The Westing Game — Ellen Raskin) Turtle was fairly sure that writing to him and saying, “Look, do you love me?” was not the thing to do. Favorite Bechdel Pass The Edge of the Looking Glass (The Matrix) She breathes in and the Matrix moves with her, as if […]
