I thought I'd have time to write a few words for each fic but this will have to be a drive-by reclist instead as I was distracted by a reading marathon of Kingdom chapters. ^^; Hope you enjoy the reads.

Recs: Avengers (10), Glee (5), Harry Potter (4) (warning: adult, not work-safe) )

Works in Progress Recs: Avengers, Glee, Pitch Perfect (11) )

Rachel Maddow interviews Olson and Boies on marriage equality

capsized standing on the edge of safe by [archiveofourown.org profile] socallmedaisy (Santana/Brittany, Santana/Rachel, Sam/Brittany) (kudos to [tumblr.com profile] santana-lopez)
This story follows Sam, Brittany, Santana and Rachel in the year and a half after New Directions win at Nationals for the first time as they come in and out of each other's lives and try to find a place for themselves, even if that place isn't where they originally thought they would be.

Strong narrative, well written, natural progression.

Kushiel's Legacy
At the Pleasure of the Queen by [archiveofourown.org profile] kmo (Phedre/Ysandre, warning: caning, BDSM) (kudos to [personal profile] musyc)
After the events of Kushiel's Avatar, Ysandre learns what it means to burn with Kushiel's fire.

Hmm I always wondered how these two settled things after the fact. This provides a plausible vignette.

Avengers, The
RED by [archiveofourown.org profile] waldorph (Maria/Natasha)
"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.

I figure it's about time for an update.

[personal profile] trancer21's femslash longfic recs
These recs look really good. They were rec'ed back in April but I forgot about this link until I was clearing my bookmarks just now...hope to read all of them eventually!

dropbox: thememoriesfire WIPs
A collection of WIPs by [archiveofourown.org profile] thememoriesfire, as collected by fans on [tumblr.com profile] tumfslove. I hadn't realized that she had posted a scene from the planned sequel to AoCC so this was a bit of a treat! :)

I Forgot The Bitter (Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7) by [livejournal.com profile] smc_27 (Puck/Rachel AU)
"Puck owns a bar [in Brooklyn] and Rachel opens a bakery next door."

This one is a super sweet AU that may make readers feel hungry, due to all the mention of delicious food. :)

Kingdom Up for Sale by [profile] professor_spork (Quinn/Sam friendship, gen)
"She owes him, and he needs her."

I really liked the way the author fleshes this one out.

Out of the Shadows by [livejournal.com profile] marysutherland (Harry/Kate) (kudos to eneri)
"Irene Adler's escaped from London, but not everyone can escape her."

This one made for an interesting read.

Warehouse 13
Catalysis by [archiveofourown.org profile] winged_mammal (Myka/Helena) (kudos to [personal profile] hibernate)
Myka keeps accidentally having sex with H.G.. She's not okay with this. (Except for the part where she totally is.)

[personal profile] hibernate said sometime ago that it was hot and made the 2nd person POV really work; I completely agree. The artifact case was also somewhat mysterious, which made it memorable beyond the well-written smut.

Me and My Girlfriend by [livejournal.com profile] smc_27 (Santana/Rachel, AU)
"In which radio host Rachel and singer Santana are huge, huge internet trolls."

This is such a cute fic! :DD
ein_myria: (tears)
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.

[personal profile] ailelie's upcoming queer women ezine Plunge Magazine managed to reach their target goal of $2,000 on their kickstart page, thanks to some nice donors. Congratulations! Submissions for the first issue (coming out in February 2013, I believe) open in July. Any additional donations will go toward reducing costs for funding issues 3 and 4, as well as covering for KS and Amazon's cuts.

Recs: Glee (1), Star Trek (1), ST:V (1), SG-1 (1) )

1. The reclists should now be arranged without articles like "A, An, and The" at the beginning, since that's what y'all voted for earlier. Please let me know in the comments to this post if I missed one. :)

2. Now that the Yuletide reveals have been up for a while the last batch of recs have been tagged with the rightful authors, and have been merged with the rest of the notables. :)

3. Moved These Strange Steps by [archiveofourown.org profile] thememoriesfire (Glee, Quinn/Rachel, stripper!quinn, warning:BDSM) from WIP to Notables page, since it's now finished. Unfortunately, the other WIP that involved a genderswap by TMF seems to have been put on the backburner (aka, discontinued) due to a writer's block.

[livejournal.com profile] fail_fandomanon: Soon-to-be-implemented changes in lj comments: no more subject line
TL;DR: The Russian PTB, [livejournal.com profile] igrick, at LJ says that they're getting rid of the subject line for LJ comments. There seemed to be some initial panic in English over kinkmemes and Roleplaying journals, which use them fairly heavily. So far, it seems that the changes will be rolled out for S1 styles within the next few months, and there is a chance that S2 styles may not be affected. It appears that the decision for the change was aesthetic and nothing to do with performance or database/administrative reasons. (Sources: 1, 2, 3)

At [community profile] fancake this months's rec theme is science fiction. Would appreciate some femslash recs over there:

(is it also too much to ask for post-colonial sci-fi recs? Or f/f ghost in the shell works, since that's actually canon?)

Dragon Age: Redemption
Dragon Age: Redemption is a six-part web series set in the world of the EA/Bioware RPG Dragon Age. The series tells the story of Tallis, an Elvish assassin, who gets a last chance at redemption when she's sent to capture a rogue Qunari mage intent on wreaking havoc in the world.

The Mortal Kombat: Legacy series and the RCVR series (also part of the Machinima original series) seems to have better production values overall, but since only episode one has been released thus far, I'm still curious to see how far they might take it.

How Hard Is It To Get a Cartoon Into The New Yorker? by James Sturm (Slate)

as companionable as solitude by [personal profile] eruthros (Fringe/The X-Files, Olivia Dunham/Dana Scully)
Walter waves his doughnut in the general direction of the desiccated corpses and the cocoon, spraying Broyles' coat with powdered sugar. "You know, this reminds me of Dana's description of prehistoric bug attacks some years ago."

...back at the beginning of July. I know that this recs update is a little overdue (I think I said sometime end of July, beginning of August). I also intended to add recommendation commentary to every single fic I've posted below, but if I did that, I think I'd delay posting this for another week or two (I hope to add that eventually). I forgot I had a couple of bookmarks in my ipad too, so these recs go back to April. :) Hope you enjoy!

(BTW, authors are still posting fics for [community profile] femslash11. You can find the masterlist of fics (by recipient) on this LJ post.)

Just so you know, comments will be brief because I'm on vacation and I actually share this PC with my hosts. Delicious probably won't be updated until I get back to homebase and figure out how to hack Delicious.com for ff4 past the outdated security certificates. If someone has already figured that out, I'd appreciate it if you could drop a comment. :)
Edit (6/6/11): Delicious now updated! Kudos to [personal profile] greenteafarm for figuring out the AVOS beta add-on!

[personal profile] false_maria posted some beautiful Urd/Marller AMG yuri fanart that's worth a mention here and here (NSFW).

[community profile] fem_thoughts is proving to be a fruitful ground for discussing and thinking about particular concepts with its various mini-meta about femslash. Recently [personal profile] snowynight kindly started off a discussion about asexuality and femslash which is quite rare but is worth thinking about.

[personal profile] erinptah: How to write Fic About Issues without it becoming Issuefic
Some good pointers!

Parallel by [archiveofourown.org profile] brbsoulnomming (John/Sherlock, OFC/OFC)
For the following prompt: "There's a case at a secondary school/University, some series of threats or string of bizarre murders that has the entire campus shaken. In the course of the investigation, Sherlock and John meet two students. One is well liked if not popular, athletic, intelligent without showing off, involved only because they were close to a victim or witnessed something important. The other is a loner with no regard for social norms, an insufferable genius, always in the chem lab, and involved because everyone, including teachers/professors, think they're behind everything."

I spotted this series floating around in Delicious. thoughts... )

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. :)

None of your Business by Natalia Klyuchareva (Words Without Borders) (kudos to [personal profile] yumiyoshi)
"A young boy tries to discipline his alcoholic parents, to shock them into changing their ways. Wallows in the depravity of human nature, yet the story (and the people) carry on."

Came across this story through DW's Latest Things; there's something really interesting about this one.
