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.

Avengers
No Fear of Heights (38088 words) by LadyMerlin

Summary:

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.

"Heroes In Manhattan: From Captain America's Hidden Talents To The Truth About The Hulk, We Debunk The Myths And Expose The Daily Lives Of The Avengers."

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."

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.

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*

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.

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.

Glee
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.

Sherlock
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."

[community profile] girlgay: Holiday Fanworks Exchange Rec Post - compilation of femslash recs from holiday exchanges.

[livejournal.com profile] miggy: Most Talented (Glee, Rachel/Kurt friendship) - the senior year of the "Mostverse" series is well on its way to being another epic piece of work. Senior year has Rachel, Kurt, and the reader dangling on the edge of a precipice--will they make it, or won't they? Rachel and Kurt have both worked really hard to get where they are, but Rachel and Kurt are just a couple of no-name talents among many. Kurt's hit and misses on the networking scene has him wondering whether it's all worth it, while Rachel is still in the dark about how the game is played in this town--she still thinks that she can still make it on talent alone. This story really parallels that essential heartbreaking dilemma depicted in the Devil Wears Prada-verse, and the reader is left hoping that after everything, their friendship might still survive it all. If you don't mind reading WIPs, it's currently being posted in segments on a daily basis while the author works on the backend. It's now complete!

Mirrors Reflecting Mirrors by heinrichfrei (Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, Wu Zetian/Shangguan Jing'er)
“I only need three things to subordinate it: an iron whip, an iron hammer, and a sharp dagger. I will whip it with the iron whip. If it does not submit, I will hammer its head with the iron hammer. If it still does not submit, I will cut its throat with the dagger.” *flails* Detective Dee femslash! Told through vignettes, this narrative explores the backstories of both Wu Zetian and Shangguan Jing'er's characters. I appreciated the canon inclusion of Wu Zetian executing Shangguan Jinger's family and Wu Zetian's calculated rise to power. However, I wonder if this could have been made deeper. If you read behind the lines, Shangguan Jing'er was originally brought into Wu Zetian's fold in order to hold her hostage, so that Jing'er's family's allies would not retaliate against Wu Zetian as a surety. Keeping your enemies close, so to speak. So how did their relationship dynamic change, from a conqueror sparing the life of a subject? Did Shangguan Jing'er suffer from stockholm syndrome? I would have appreciated a much more in-depth look at that shift.

It looks like Melissa Good is starting to write an original sci-fi story called Partners. Chapter 1 looks pretty good so far; I'm interested to see where she's going to take it. The storyline looks set to be a cross between that AI "awareness" / "consciousness" storyline in Ghost in the Shell and maybe AI-human love (the Aliens storyline) from what I've seen. The last good storyline that I've seen about AI and sci-fi in the past couple of years that's really advanced ideas regarding "the sea of consciousness" was probably Real Drive (Wikipedia article), or RD 潜脳調査室, and that had some pretty epic world building and meta. Don't think this fic will break that meta ceiling but who knows!

Edit: You can get the fansub of the Real Drive series here.

Also: 1st gen E-ink colors appear "a little dull." Looks like it'll be a while before my mythical cheap, accessible, and reliable colored e-ink reader becomes a reality. lol
