Eek. How time flies. I've been a bit distracted; I've been spending my nights lately playing Zeus on Dota 2, watching the VODS for the SCII HOTS MLG Winter Championship, and reading up on the drama that is the Sim City release on reddit. As Zeus says, "To err is human. To respawn, divine!" :DD

Hope everyone else is having a good March so far.

p5’s list of pitch perfect fic that everybody should read by [tumblr.com profile] perpetuallyfive
[personal profile] havocthecat was asking for some Pitch Perfect fic some time ago. I'm enjoying the fics but many don't seem to pass that second read through, and if they do, they're still a WIP. :)

Common Writing Mistakes, from A to X by Benjamin Dreyer (VP Executive Managing Editor & Copy Chief of Random House Publishing Group)
Pretty useful!

Recs
James Bond
A Tragedy of Error by [archiveofourown.org profile] coldgreydawn (James Bond/Vesper Lynd)
"Vesper negotiates with life after death."

Interesting fork-in-the-road AU that I came across.

Rule 63 & #femslash february
Is genderswapping a male/male (or less commonly, a female/male) pairing in the spirit of the femslash february celebration? [community profile] girlgay members chime in.

Shousetsu Bang*Bang Special Issues
For those who don't know, "Shousetsu Bang*Bang is a webzine for original gay fiction/boy's love oneshot stories." Anyway, the special issues in this webzine are focused on original yuri! :DD I've seen a couple of good stories rec'ed on pinboard. I thought I'd show some love, as I'm looking forward to the next issue next month, Tea for Two. (sign-up info)

10 Things I Hate About You
Priceless by [archiveofourown.org profile] impertinence (Kat/Missy, Bring It On x-over)
"Kat's looking forward to a calm second year at Sarah Lawrence. Her new roommate makes that less than easy."

Written for Yuletide! Hot, awkward, and cute in its fumblings, it also had some very smart writing...

Avengers, The
fighting fire with firewood by [archiveofourown.org profile] siria (Natasha/Clint)
"Natasha was not the kind of person to be curious."

This was an interesting character study.

James Bond
Untouchable by [archiveofourown.org profile] telanu (M/James Bond)
"Sometime between Quantum of Solace and Skyfall, Bond and M have been drugged with an aphrodisiac."

I'm not sure that this got on enough people's radars when it came out, but this ought to be showcased as a master class in how to maintain knife-edged tension in a scene. Don't be misled by its premise; I think my brain short circuited on how hot and awesomely written it was.

So You Want to Find Some Fanvids to Impress Your Fellow Fen at the Next Meetup by [personal profile] calvinahobbes (kudos to [personal profile] nemonclature)
A fanvid primer.

Recs
Quick drive-by recs for eneri, who requested some recs with a little more...action. :)

Avengers, The
A bullet is a kiss by [archiveofourown.org profile] tristesses (Natasha/James Bond) (x-over)
"Trust is a handicap in their line of work, and friendship is a weakness. Natasha gives James Bond neither, but they have a good time regardless."

Fun cross-over. :)

Black Widow: The Movie I'm Not Writing series by [archiveofourown.org profile] waketosleep (gen)
"The prevalence of sexual cannibalism gives several species of spider in the genus Latrodectus the colorful common name "black widow". However, the female does not always kill and eat the male."

Fluid action and vivid imagery makes for a really cool part 2.

My Girlfriend, Who Lives in Portland by [archiveofourown.org profile] fabrega (Clint/Phil)
"I wish you could meet my girlfriend, but you can't because she is in Portland."

Interesting look at white lies.

Nine Lives of Natasha Romanoff, The by [archiveofourown.org profile] starrika (Natasha/Clint) (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] cyprinella)
"A story of how Natasha Romanoff found herself, with a little help from that annoying American with the bow."

Interesting progression.

Only Soldier Now Is Me, The by [archiveofourown.org profile] samalander (Natasha/Clint) (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] cyprinella)
"She told Loki that Barton was sent to kill her, and he made a different call. That’s only part of the story. And not even the most interesting part. An examination of Natasha Romanova's journey to SHIELD and the Avengers."

Harry Potter
Butterscotch by [archiveofourown.org profile] tamlane (Hermione/Blaise/Daphne)
Daphne propositions Hermione over popsicles, and Blaise suddenly decides he's feeling vanilla. Hermione should have realized that she was in for some serious sexual politics.

*fans self*

James Bond
Queen of Spades by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat (James Bond/M) (kudos to [personal profile] somniesperus)
"Bond," M said, as he paused in the doorway to hear her out, "the next time you do something like this will be once too many."

*fans self even further*
