Curiously is there any decent Mad Fax Fury Road femslash? :) Caught it last weekend and thought the possibilities were...interesting to say the least. :) It's certainly open for character studies and backstory vignettes.

Anyway here are some things I've been reading recently. Most of these will probably end up on the notables list at some point but not all.

aka The SHIELD Hypothesis

Maria Hill is the Assistant Director of SHIELD, a high-flying member of a high-flying covert agency, whose friends and colleagues could, and often did take off, into flight. But while most of them come from similar, if exceptional, military backgrounds, not all of them have the same story. This story is about Maria Hill, her history, and the price you have to pay for finding acceptance, when you belong to a high-flying, high-risk super secret organisation like SHIELD.

Tony Stark's not wrong, entirely. You do have to be a certain type of messed up, to find a home in SHIELD, or any similar intelligence agency. Normal people did not thrive in places where sex-change forms were a normal thing and re-writing Wills was a monthly business. Maria Hill always thought she was the exception. She always thought she was pretty normal, compared to the rest of the lot. She wasn't. But while Stark wasn't wrong, he wasn't exactly right, either. SHIELD is like the ocean; what it taketh away, it often giveth back, with upgrades.

"Can you explain to me," Andrea again skipped the pleasantries and Emily thought that Miranda had certainly rubbed off on her, "why a man knocked on my door this morning and delivered to me a dozen peach roses and a turtle?"

Andrea 'Andy' Sachs tossed her phone in Fontaines de la Concorde and left Miranda stranded in the middle of Paris Fashion Week.

Two years after Paris, Andy is finally settled in at The Mirror when she finds herself grudgingly pigeonholed into covering New York's Next Top Model. The question on everyone's lips: who on earth coerced Miranda Priestly into judging? Working in close-quarters with the Dragon Lady once again, will Andy be able to push through their complicated history and assert that she is, in fact, something more than Miranda's disappointing ex-assistant?

I just came back from watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened yesterday. Went into it with medium expectations and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. :) Go watch! :D

A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones
Pride and Pack by [archiveofourown.org profile] ghostrelic (Sansa Stark / Tywin Lannister AU, kudos to [archiveofourown.org profile] telanu)
"Tywin Lannister marries Sansa Stark himself, instead of giving her to Tyrion."

I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns this story had. The story structurally felt a little familiar (Snape/Hermione?, Lucius/Hermione?) and I was troubled by several of the sections--please read the trigger warnings as it does mention torture among other things--but it was a gripping read. For those who are new to this genre it's easier to take in if you've finished watching season 2 or later.

Avengers (No Winter Soldier spoilers)
A Widow's Tale by [archiveofourown.org profile] mhalachai (Stargate Atlantis x-over, AU)
This series starts with Steve revisiting Natasha's deep cover past as a Russian spy during the cold war, and deals with its consequences.

A very nice interweaving of the two different fandoms.

Give A Girl A Moment And She'll Take You For All You've Got and the sequel The Right Hand Knows Not by [archiveofourown.org profile] tielan
"Coulson had once made the observation that Darcy Lewis’ ability to beg, bribe, or bully people into her plans was almost a superpower in and of itself. Considering she was walking down a tattered Tribeca street with four women she either barely knew or didn’t socialise with for drinks on a Friday night, Maria could well believe it." The sequel has really awesome action sequences.

Speaking in Foreign Tongues by [archiveofourown.org profile] Rainne (Natasha/Kate Beckett, Castle x-over)
“Sometimes when I am bored, I go to Glechik Café in Little Odessa and pretend to be Muscovite.”

Interesting narrative.

Tomb Raider
Primer: Tetraninja's Tomb Raider Let's Play playlist for eneri and others who's never seen the awesome epic storyline for Yamatai. XD

Gathering Storms by [archiveofourown.org profile] zerrat (Lara Croft/Sam Nishimura)
"In the aftermath of Yamatai, Sam struggles to return to her normal life. Her emotions spinning wildly out of control, Sam finds herself unravelling as the fragments of Himiko's soul within her begin to consume everything that she is."

A nicely written action/adventure that follows the ending sequence of Tomb Raider.

For this post I thought I'd share some fun shenanigans before Yuletide authors are revealed. :] [edit 5/1/2014: updated authors from anonymous]

Also, does anyone know if Bailey B has an official alternative archive for her works? Her website (the voyager collective) is down...

Avengers, The
Freezer Burn series by [archiveofourown.org profile] domarzione (gen)
A series of character-explorations which revolve around Natasha, Steve, and Bucky.

This explores in an epic way how the Winter Soldier movie might play out. :]

Run Like We're Awesome 'Verse by [archiveofourown.org profile] themonkeycabal (gen)
What if Tony was Darcy's dad?

Interesting premise and it's been done before but I think this one is quite well executed.

Second Fiddles by [archiveofourown.org profile] concertigrossi (Phil/OFC) (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] cyprinella)
A story about Phil and his cellist.

Interesting exploration.

Interesting take.

I Shall Not Want Honour In Heaven by [personal profile] sam_storyteller (aka [archiveofourown.org profile] copperbadge) (Peggy/Gabe Jones)
"Peggy Carter's life after the war: Howard Stark, Gabriel Jones, SHIELD, and a little boy named Nicholas." (alternative link: AO3)

Saw this work on pinboard's popular fandom bookmarks, and it's well worth the read. I think it comes together a little too neatly and/or easily for certain segments (the secret meetings as a way to move the plot forward are a little lazy) but it has its merits, nonetheless.

Devil Wears Prada, The
When the Night Falls on You by [archiveofourown.org profile] fewthistle (Andy/Miranda AU)
Andy decides to stay with Miranda after Paris.

I'm not quite sure how I missed this one back in 2010 but I'm happy to rectify this error. The build up is relatively slow-paced (compared to other fics) but the interactions feel a little more substantive.

Pacific Rim
Saw this last week, the giant robots were fun (pushed some buttons for me as I'm a big Patlabor / Neon Genesis Evangelion fan), but I wanted to see more of Sasha and Aleksis. The following are some interesting world building fics as well as an exploration into the backstories of some of these minor characters. As with some early fandom writing, there's some confusion about which is the female and which is the male (eg: Blaise in Harry Potter). Sasha is reportedly male and Aleksis/Aleksandra is female on IMDB, but the male actor said on a Youtube that he was Aleksis/Aleksandra, and his wife was Sasha. *shrugs*

those who run with wolves by [archiveofourown.org profile] epistolic (Aleksis/Sasha)
"She’s matched him from the start, blow for blow, move for move, and for the first time since he saw her six months ago he realises that Aleksandra Dmitriyeva is beautiful."

Volchitsa by [archiveofourown.org profile] epistolic (Aleksis/Sasha)
It had not been a marriage for love, but he loves her.

you're my apocalypse by [archiveofourown.org profile] epistolic (Raleigh/Mako)
"The entire world believes they are in love, but this is not true."

Listening to some deep house:

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.

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*

I'm Gonna Be A Part Of It (Whether I Want To Or Not) by [archiveofourown.org profile] fringedweller (Darcy/Bruce)
"Relocated against her will to New York, Darcy Lewis has to juggle working as an admin monkey for SHIELD, covertly finishing her degree and falling in love. Only one of these things is easy, and it's not the one that she thinks it will be."

For those who don't remember, Darcy Lewis is the girl who majored in Political Science and was Jane Foster's assistant in Thor. She's the one who was hired because she was the only one who applied, and had her ipod taken by S.H.I.E.L.D. I don't know why there are so many fics dedicated to her and Bruce but this one was amusing and shows off the author's potential. It's not without it's problems (some of the ideas border on the ridiculous--and the author knows it), but I enjoyed it as the fun read it was meant to be.

Kick Off Your Sunday Shoes7 by [archiveofourown.org profile] leiascully (Natasha/Steve, WIP)
"Natasha thought it was a shame that Steve had never been dancing (among other things)."

This was a very cute read and would be good for those who like to read about dancing and shameless smut. *chuckles and sighs* I miss Anik La Chev's Small Steps. ^^;

love is for children and other lies by [archiveofourown.org profile] fahye (Natasha/Clint, Natasha/Maria)
"War is the child's emptiness, the surrender of identity, the transformation into a simple system: purpose goes in, action comes out. (Natalia Alianovna Romanova, and everything that she became.)"

A nicely thought out story.

I've merged the Ironman recs into the Avengers section as the Natasha fics should be in one place.

Avengers, The
Fractures by [archiveofourown.org profile] tamoline (Natasha/Pepper)
"Everyone has weaknesses, faults, flaws, fractures. The things they're not quite rational about. The things that inform their every action. The things that can be used against them."

Nice solid progressive development.

masks that the monsters wear, the by [archiveofourown.org profile] beardsley (Natasha/various; dark AU, please read warnings)
"Natasha joins SHIELD. Four years later, the Winter Soldier starts targeting the Avengers. But the real story starts in 1935, in Stalingrad. Or maybe 1950, when the Red Room sends her on her first mission. Or maybe 1959, when Natasha meets the Winter Soldier. Or maybe..."

Thought provoking, this one cuts deep with its vivid imagery and many layers. All at once chilling, grim, and fragile. I have to say that this fic may be one of my favorites this year. Not every fic can give you goosebumps, but this one did, for me.

For those who don't know who Yelena Belova is, the author (also known as [personal profile] troublesteady / [tumblr.com profile] troublesteady) gives a quick primer here. For those who are interested in that kind of thing, the author also wrote some interesting meta about Natasha being sexual and aromantic.
ein_myria: (headphone girl)
This will probably be my only post for November. My only excuse for the lack of recs is that a friend gave me his collection of Running Man (런닝맨) episodes earlier in the month and now I can't. Stop. Watching.

To make up for my lack of recs I'm unloading some of the WIP fics I've been reading. These fics represent some that have interesting AU world-building potential. Some have some grammar issues but a decent beta reader could iron those issues out fairly quickly.

I need a Medic17 by [fanfiction.net profile] Gorshenin (AU, Army!Brittana)
"It's wrong on so many levels. It's fraternization, it's unprofessional, it could cost you your rank, your career, and worse-hers; but you can't stay away. You need her and it has nothing to do with the palpitations in your chest."

Legend of the Seeker
Destiny Does Not Send Us Heralds25 by [archiveofourown.org profile] asianscaper (AU Kahlan/Cara)
"In an adventure gone awry, Cara and Kahlan are forced to examine their lives and priorities more closely."

Ingénue33 by [archiveofourown.org profile] ebonlock (AU, Irene/"Anthea")
"Her safe word is 'enough', because as soon as she meets Irene she knows she's never going to need it again."

a kingdom or a cottage or a grave by [archiveofourown.org profile] beardsley (Peggy Carter/Natasha Romanov)
"It doesn't matter where you're born. What matters is who you become. Peggy Carter as the Winter Soldier."

Such a cool concept and execution. :)

Alice in Wonderland
Red Country, The by [archiveofourown.org profile] jibrailis (Queen of Hearts/White Queen) (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] sophieisgod)
"Before Alice ever fell down the rabbit-hole, there were two girls who found Wonderland first and who became, respectively, the White Queen and the Queen of Hearts. [Alice in Wonderland prequel]."

This happens to be one of those grand meta world-building narratives. An interesting, marvelous read that's surprisingly restrained, given the possibilities. Personally, I think it's greatest strengths lie in the character studies.

Avengers, The
this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name by [archiveofourown.org profile] cinaed (Natasha Romanov/James "Bucky" Barnes)
"Some of Natasha’s memories are true, some are false, but throughout all of them runs one thread of remembrance: a cool metal hand gentle upon her back, tender against her cheek, tight around her throat; an assassin with a crooked smile and eyes like winter."

I loved the epic narrative, the way the author managed to keep the reader in the dark and guessing as to what was going to happen next. Of course, it helps that Natasha is awesome in this one.

Iron Man
Five thousand roses by [archiveofourown.org profile] forestgreen (f!Tony/OFC, f!Tony/OMC, f!Tony/Rhodey)
"She is broken and all the more dangerous for it. The world should tread carefully around the shards of her former self lest they cut themselves on Antonia Stark's sharp edges." (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] katemonkey)

I suppose one might think of it as a more damaged and elaborate version of the previous stories I've rec'ed in this genre, which tends to look at and question societal expectations and gender norms. A very nicely written story.

Avengers, The

"These are not all lies."

This has been rec'ed quite a bit, so I'm sure you've come across it before, but wow, Natasha comes off as such a badass. :DD

Louisville to Lemonade by [archiveofourown.org profile] headcannon (Santana/Rachel AU) (kudos to [tumblr.com profile] santana-lopez)
"Santana can’t help that she comes across as judgmental. Truth is, she wouldn’t come across as judgmental if other people didn’t suck at first impressions and come across as backwoods yokels who are betrothed to their first cousins (hypothetically)."

This one was cute. :) The cluelessness was a tad exaggerated, I thought, but very cute nonetheless.

This Must Be The Place by [archiveofourown.org profile] gollumgollum (Santana/Brittany, Carlos/Jake AU; The Losers x-over)
"Santana is eight years old when her Tio Carlos joins the Army."

Interesting read.

Legend of the Seeker
Absolution by [archiveofourown.org profile] simplesetgo (Kahlan/Cara, dark!fic)
"As a Mord-Sith, Cara knew that everyone had dark parts of their lives that they kept from even those they loved. But nothing could prepare her for what lay hidden in Kahlan's past."

The author had an interesting concept, good execution, and made me wonder what happened after.

While the Cat's Away by [archiveofourown.org profile] marysutherland (Irene/Kate) (thanks eneri!)
"Kate and Irene are on the run; Sarah and John are going for a run. And Sherlock could be anywhere."

Strong narrative voice, visually arresting. I instantly had an Indian narrator doing voice over for some reason.

Managed to catch The Flowers of War (Youtube Trailer) at the movies this weekend. There's a lot of graphic violence, but it's beautifully directed and the acting is great. A very powerful film that made me reflect on humanity. Just, uh...remember to bring tissues.

As some of you may have noticed, I have started using an OpenID account for LJ and IJ commenting. I wasn't sure what the difference between OpenID and a normal user account was until I spotted a very user-friendly guide (Using an Open ID account at Livejournal by [personal profile] facetofcathy) and decided to take the plunge--I saw some merit in the 'it's not very friendly for users to see a blank journal' rationale. Since I'm not using the journaling services on those sites I might as well hand over the journaling resources to more active users. :)
