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) )

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*

Updates
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)

For those who do not have pinboard, this is what's available if you search for femslash, femmeslash, and f/f. [personal profile] murklins has posted several userscripts (like this one) that has drastically improved the user experience for the site, so if you want to see what people've done to make pinboard shinier, stay tuned to [community profile] pinboard.

I should also give notice that as part of my pinboard updates I've also been changing the URLs for some LJ accounts on my notables list to alternatives if there are some to be found (eg: AO3, DW, personal website). LJ has been a little unstable and that Lancome ad was driving me nuts.

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.

Sherlock
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.

Rizzoli & Isles
A Little Cold Series by [livejournal.com profile] snuffnyc is now complete, updated links. eneri has been bugging me to read it. Yes, it was a pretty cute read; it addressed certain imbalances towards the middle and had a bit of a case fic aspect towards the later segments.

(1) More on gendered spaces on the internet.
New Twitter Research: Men Follow Men and Nobody Tweets (kudos to [personal profile] lian)
Based on a survey of 300,000+ users: "Although men and women follow a similar number of Twitter users, men have 15% more followers than women. Men also have more reciprocated relationships, in which two users follow each other. This 'follower split' suggests that women are driven less by followers than men, or have more stringent thresholds for reciprocating relationships."

Where Are the Women in Wikipedia? (kudos to [personal profile] terriko)
"...despite [Wikipedia's] openness, surveys suggest that less than 15 percent of Wikipedia's contributors are women."

(3) For eneri (and gonz, by way of extension), since I know the two of you are foodies at heart: Potluck, "a carnival for multicultural and intersectional discussions of food, including but not limited to food discussions intersecting with disability, gender, sexuality, fat, animal rights, and cultural and racial issues."

BBC: Bend It Like Beckham was the "1st ever Western-made film to air on TV" in North Korea. To celebrate the occasion (any mention of subtext probably being censored), here's some femslash from that genre (AO3, femslash_today tags), because there can never be enough about girls playing football. I still think that a Bend It Like Beckham/10 Things I Hate About You/She's The Man cross-over fic would be epic.

On one side is Bill Keller's right wing: bigoted and xenophobic. On the other side is the Muslim right wing, which uses Islam against me to fuel its misogyny."

Femslash Case Study: Bitch Slap
A couple posts back someone in a meta post asked why femslash flourished in some really obscure categories as opposed to others. A perfect case study to ponder upon would be Bitch Slap (2009; trailer); it's a movie that had oodles of maintext femslash but resulted in very little femslash fanfic. more... )
