I had a week off and spent it going out, sleeping, moving furniture and reading books. It was awesome.

For reference. [ profile] perseid, you may be interested. *koffs*.

Summary: Zhoumi strives to be better than average, because living his life any other way would only fill him with regret.

naanima: Tony Stark is hot ([Ironman] Merchant of Death)

[ profile] velithya, 2 fic recs for Iron Man. Not sure if you have read it or not but you know, always good for a re-read.

Summary: They say Jim Rhodes is the only one who can get Tony out of the armor anymore.

Spoilers: Movieverse futurefic, with contributions from Iron Man: Extremis, Iron Man: Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., and The Incredible Hulk.



My thoughts: Movie Tony through the eyes of the media (well, Christine Everhart)

Summary: "It’s been 'a hell of a year' since industrialist Tony Stark owned up to his alter ego in a move that stunned observers and longtime aides alike. With the US facing unprecedented homegrown suicide attacks, Iron Man's contribution to national security is more than ever under scrutiny. As she follows Stark during a year of crisis, exclusively for Vanity Fair, Christine Everhart explores the many contradictions of the man behind the mask, uncovers tales of personal loyalty, patriotism gone awry and corporate betrayal, and asks whether Iron Man is the embodiment of an outdated American fantasy—a self-made, unilateral, technological solution to hopelessly complex problems—and whether he can survive the violent encounter with reality."

Fandom update because I like to keep track

naanima: ([SPN] Jensen and Jared are just good fri)
Still around – reading [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang and re-watching DBSK’s 3rd Live T Tour Concert clips on my iPod. Bigbang fics has been very draining this year, don’t get me wrong, the quality has been superb, but some of the angst has been both unflinching and unrelenting. As a consequence I have finally figured out what type of stories I prefer to read; generally speaking I prefer reading understated J2 fics, not the epics but fics that focus on the day-to-day lives of our heroes. I want to read about people falling in love; not the be all and end all love like that of Sam and Dean (platonic or otherwise). I want the quiet, understated and content love that some of the J2 fics has been pulling off so superbly.

[ profile] reccea’s In Production is my current favourite big bang fic.

A decade after Supernatural ends, Jared Padalecki is still working in series television. His marriage to Sandy is coming to an amicable end, and he's famous enough that he wants to be out of town before he becomes a tabloid headline.

Jensen Ackles has seen his career progress from small but weighty parts that earned him acclaim to above the title billing. The notoriously private Jensen extends an invitation--by way of a first-class plane ticket--for Jared to hide out at Jensen's mostly empty Paris flat while he films his next movie.

Three months in Paris is enough to tone down the tabloid attention, but Jared returns to LA only to find that he doesn't have everything figured out. They say you can't go home again, but Jared discovers that sometimes that's exactly what you have to do.

In Production is my current happy place.

[ profile] perseid, DBSK’s 3rd Live T Tour Concert clips has been awesome; so much dancing, so much singing and so much FLESH! I really like the film clip they did for TRICK; it makes me want to read fics about the boys being spies. I love like YunHo’s long hair, the shiny silver outfits and they even made me like Tomorrow, which I hate with the passion of a thousand burning suns. I still prefer YunChun’s voice the most, and a live band at the concert was the best decision they ever made.
Good time, good times.

2 J2 Big Bang Recs!

Big Bang Fic: Come Play With Me by [ profile] lexzilla.

Summary: Film geek Jared Padalecki is almost living the dream. He’s gone from excitable horror-convention-going fanboy to hot new cult film director in just five years. Now he has the budget, the studio and the stars. All he still needs to do is convince long forgotten B-movie actor Jensen Ackles that he wants to play the leading man in more than just his new movie and then it really will be 'happily ever after'. Of course, in life, just like in the movies, true love never runs smoothly...

My Comments: OMFG! I LOVE this fic to bits! If I can ONLY ever read ONE fic in my whole entire life I will read this! Twink Hunt! Blood Spattered Samurai! I am in LOVE! Don't leave me! It has CULT FILMS! OUTSIDER POV! DORK JARED! INTELLIGENT JARED! And just OMFG! I LOVE this so very much! There NEED to be MORE!


Fourth Wall by [ profile] raina_at.

Summary: When famous murder mystery fiction writer Jared Padalecki is suspected of having murdered his former girlfriend, he turns to his ex-boyfriend and criminal defence lawyer Jensen Ackles for help. Matters soon get complicated both personally and professionally when both the case and their relationship as lawyer-client turn out far more difficult and volatile than either of them expected,and the lines between fiction and reality, past and present begin to blur.

My Comments: In my mind [ profile] raina_at can do NO wrong. She does a pretty damn awesomw job here, and I want to read MORE about writer Jared and lawyer Jensen.

Iron Man fic recs

naanima: ([Ironman] Supermodel)
[ profile] velithya, [ profile] im_newsletter is pretty damn good when it comes to compiling IM fics, hence, I may be repeating myself. But the following are some of my favourite fics.

Everything written by [ profile] hackthis, her lj is wonderfully tagged. Here for her Iron Man fics. Mostly gen.

Gen: Four Times Pepper Potts Saved the World (and One Time She Didn't. Oh gods, I LOVE this to bits. Pepper Potts is awesome, and her relationship with Tony here is one of trust, snark and OMFG! My heart breaks at times.

Slash: Like Poles - Tony & Harry. Marvel creates some really fucked up rich people.

Slash: More Tony and Harry.

Het: Shoeboz Greetings - Pepper have a life of her own. Agent Coulson understand shoes, and it is just awesome.

Slash: "something somewhere has to break," - Tony Stark and Nathan Petrelli.

Slash: The Value of Secrets - Um, Tony and Jarvis gets to know one and another. The bits about the real Jarvis makes the whole thing very surreal at times. And yes, I can see movie!Tony doing this.

Slash: Once More Unto the Beach - Tony and Rhodey, 4th installment. The linked fic have links to the previous fic.

Gen: Extraordinary and Bonding - How Tony and Rhodey became friends.

Slash: Drive You Wild - Um, Sam and Dean meets Tony Stark.

ETA: Another fic rec - Slash: "Paul said to Peter, you got to rock yourself a little harder" - Tony and Rhodey. This fic is awesome.

Gen: To Be Done After That. - Billionaires own million-dollar pieces of real estate.

Gen: 48 hours - Tony Stark doesn't know how he feels. About being tortured, about being a superhero, or about the possible existence of magic and aliens.

SPN Fics Recs

naanima: ([SPN] The boys)
More SPN Fic recs.

A Change Is Gonna Come by [ profile] cosmic. John makes a wish, and Fate can't be stopped. Utterly devastating in its simplicity.

this is how you set a table for tea by [ profile] unperfectwolf. Hendricksen is on a hunt for the Winchesters only to find a blond girl by the name of Jo. All the ways that I can love Hendricksen, and the ways that Jo can/could/does rock.

Live and Die This Way by [ profile] goldatamera. Pre-series; Dean finds what was lost, this made my heart clench and I couldn't decide whether I wanted to cry or laugh in joy.

To The Left of Avalon by [ profile] deadspeaker. A thousand years in the future, Dean meets a child on Mars whom he finds oddly familiar. Manages to pack in a whole universe with layers of humanity and history in 1,619 words. Even though I pretty much guessed the plot points from the summary alone, I was literally at the edge of my seat as if braising for impact. The final three words to this fic is like a punch to the gut or the feeling of sun kissing your cheeks (possibly both) - satisfying, works on its own, but ohhh, I want more.

SPN Fic rec.

naanima: ([SPN] Good vibrations with Dean on bed)
Secure the Blessing by [ profile] rahmi.

A Supernatural gen fic; Sam makes a wish. Dean is not pleased. It is 21,000 words of pure awesomeness, I don't want to spoil anyone further because reading this with no preconceptions is just an amazing experience. I love that the fic deals with the logistics of an action and its consequences. I love that Sam is not dumb, he's John Winchester's son and he knows that nothing is ever without a price or a sacrifice. And Dean, oh Dean, the BESTEST older brother ever.

Instant Rec!

REC: Torchwood Fic: Snowdon by [ profile] rivier. Her summary for this fic: Owen, Ianto, and the shape left by the absence of Jack. I am incoherent with glee! This- this is the fic that I have been waiting for Post-End Of Days. It is just OMFG!Awesome! The characters are dead-on, the way each of them deal with their own grief. I just love! This fic made me smile, laugh and at times scream "OH NOES!" I love. It is gen, I don't care what other people say, the fic is gen. LALALALALA!

RL crisis over, or at the very least I’ve achieved a level of acceptance over the shit that I’m calm enough not to snap.

I the Supernatural fandom. LOVE it to tiny little fangirl bits. This love is brought to you by the discovery of the Slash Anthology produced by [ profile] moveablehistory. It is perfect, just so perfect, and I can bring it with me wherever I go (reading on the train! Yes, I may have a hardcopy with me.) My mind breaks at the time and effort that must have gone into the whole endeavour, it is just amazing.

I this fandom!

naanima: (cool in black and white)
Alive, just been having way too many 12-hour days lately. Need to read books on management, superannuation and matters of finance. Fandom? Hmm, [ profile] bb_shousetsu makes my week. Personal faves of this issue; Bedtime Stories by H. Kiyosumi, Created Perfection by Satoimo Taro (里芋たろ) , and Memory by Shin De (シン・デ). The first because it doesn’t have fan serviced elves (well, at least not mPreg,) there’s just something about the whole thing that remind me of Slayers and, well, fun fantasy stories. The second because it is just beautiful and dark like really, really rich chocolate. And the last because it is my favorite BL cliché done right (ohhh, angst with happy endings.)

[ profile] petronia and her cohort of writers.

ETA: [ profile] perseid, I think I know who you are though I really can't be 100% sure as I haven't read anything written by you in a very long time. It is more of a theme-thing (gut feeling) than anything else.

recs... crack is my friend

  • Jan. 13th, 2006 at 12:14 PM
naanima: (getting prepared)
How the War was Lost and Won; or, the Many Untimely Deaths of one Tom Marvolo Riddle. The prompt was: give me a character (from anything, although I will just make stuff up if I don't know who they are) and I will tell you how they defeated Lord Voldemort.

The BESTEST sort of crack. The weird and wonderful ways that Lord V gets killed.

A Deeper Season: chapter 15 is just amazing! Politics, my friends, politics. Miles is action man, there's going to be a new heir *snorts*, and sometime being a spook for an intergalactic empire kind of sucks, especially when you might have possibly helped the other side.

Back to work, & recs

  • Jan. 5th, 2006 at 7:45 AM
naanima: (Default)
So, in about 15 minutes I'm officially back to work *pouts* but before I do; a few recs.

I love the original Terminator movie to little fan-heart bits, however, this is not to say that I didn't ever want a happy-ish ending for Sarah Connor & Kyle Reese (did I ever). So, without further ado; The Unwritten Future (het, R) because omfg! Sarah & Kyle Reese deserved happiness (of a sort)! This fic make me all happy in the bestest of ways. When het pairings are done right. Summary: Time had never been the same since Kyle Reese stepped out of a fused glass crater and into the streets of Los Angeles. He had never really expected to survive his mission into the past.

Miles Vorkosigan
This fic drew me in & won't let me go. It is absolutely wonderful, I am so fecking addicted. [ profile] perseid, you know how every time I rec you stuff and you always feel slightly unsure, well listen to me, this is one of those recs that I make to you & you avoid until one day you cave and it is like the best & the most addictive crack ever. In conclusion; read this & rant at me later.

PG-13. Miles/Gregor. Drama, action, romance. 720 kb Post-Memory, AU. Take one Miles, a hapless cousin, Cetagandan social politics, a galactic conspiracy, a scientific discovery, a lot of firepower, and an unexpected declaration. Mix well and step back quickly.

ETA: 'A Deeper Season' is currently a WIP, though the actual story is already finished, the authors are posting a chapter a day. So, by mid Jan, the story will be all online!

lalalalalala, fic recs

naanima: (happy house)
[ profile] code_renegade has completed Monochromatic Whispers. In addition, scroll down to the comments section here for an extra scene, because obviously she loves me.

Yuletide 2005.

There's one Galactic Milieu fic.

There's two Miles Vorkosigan fic. One is approximately 80kb.

[ profile] devikun has written 85 pron.

I'm eating left-over from yesterday's Christmas lunch at [ profile] londobell's, and I'm drinking French Vanilla coffee with a bit of whiskey.

So, despite the onset of the monthly shredding of the stomach lininings I'm feeling really good.

getbackers fic rec, and babble

  • Dec. 24th, 2005 at 11:11 AM
naanima: (inspired)
Go, and read [ profile] incandescens' fanfiction. I recommend Opening The Way, which is a wonderfully plotted Getbackers fic, mind you; I would read anything she write. For that matter, read her Saiyuki and Bleach fanfiction.

So, I have been really behind on fandom, RL tend to suck any kind of enjoyment out of my leisure activities. See my surprise when I'm trying to figure out what has been happening in Getbackers for the past few months. All I can say is; Paul?! What?! Not that I didn't see something but WHAT?! And der Kaiser?! aaskjh;gisjd;kgm;'! Why doesn't my f-list inform me of these things? I'm so terribly confused, really, really confused, yet it somehow makes sense in my mind, and [ profile] incandescens, thank you for writing Unforgiven, sure I can only understand half the implied back-story, but by the gods I'm ridiculously happy.

In short; can someone point me towards the direction of good Getbackers summary of what the hell has been happening, and maybe provide me a chart of who is related to whom, who is currently in the phase of betrayal/death/angst/attempting to recover the past/etc/. Thanks.

P.S. The Gale Emperor is all kind of awesome.

KKM 49 - 55! OMFG!!!!!

Kyou Kara Maou: Episodes 49 to 55... OMFG! Conrad and Yuri are so DOING IT! (Or will be doing it.)

THANK YOU FOR FULFILLING MY FANGIRL WISHES! This is DIRECTED at episode 49! CONRAD is PSYCHIC when it COMES to YURI! OMFG! And Adelbert is Teh Angst Monkey! OK, I think I like Adelbert now, and here is WHY! )

The difficulties of being a Devoted and Loyal Fangirl )

Now, for Conrad and Yuri, AKA Conrad (and Adelbert) is a Psychic and Really good at catching )

And I'm like, 'OT3? (4?)' NOOO! DIE BRAIN DIE!

There were so many meaningful glances in episode 49. It can't be DENIED! Even Wolfram saw it!

[ profile] perseid, you are obviously deluded in your wolframXyuri fangirl-ism. You sad, sad, sad child.

Sleep? What's that? I got like, 2 hours of sleep >_<

CONRAD! YUURI! OTP! THANK YOU!!! And a strange need for AdelbertxJulia fics -_-;;

ETA:[ profile] nekomancy, the conrad/yuri fanfics are here. Enjoy.

Tsubasa fic rec & ETA: New Saiyuki thing

  • Nov. 1st, 2005 at 8:15 AM
naanima: (hear-ye!)
I spent Halloween night sleeping! 9:00 pm bed time! I feel so well rested and happy!

READ! [ profile] pengiesama's A Very Tsubasa Halloween

OMFG! I have not laughed this hard over fic in a very long time. With an overall heading of:


Constant vigilance is the first key to survival.

Keeping it in your pants is the second.

And other headings such as:

VI. Whether you live or die, you'll always be back for the sequel if you have a big enough fanbase.

And the Teams! Team Woofy Kitty Bow Meow Biscuit make me snort caffine.

Oh, and don't forget to look at the pictures! *giggles*

ETA: I admit I'm extremely out of touch with the Saiyuki fandom in the sense that I have no idea (on the details) of what has been happening since volume 9 of the series. However, I do read the odd spoilers and way too many fanfiction based on Saiyuki. So, um, realise the following is made without the new context. Latest issue with the conversation between Hakkai and Gojyo: Really Not That Surprising. After all, Hakkai is the man who killed 1,000 (or was that 10,000?) youkai with his bear hands. That kind of single mindedness, that kind of ruthlessness and that kind of drive usually leaves one a little bit fucked up. Though I stand by the fact that I never questioned Hakkai's hold on sanity, ever (and that's a whole essay about the concept of sanity, and just how sane Hakkai is.) Also, really good timing, with the whole Halloween thing *smiles*
naanima: (not fade away)
Naruto - Ripple Effect 21. I think the fic is DONE!

There is no way for me to convey how and what I feel for this fic. It is gen, it is epic, and at it is core it is Team 7; older, stronger and so much more brittle.

If I can ever only read one fanfiction/novel again I would pick Ripple Effect. Go, read.


  • Sep. 21st, 2005 at 6:27 PM
naanima: (cloud)
I'm really looking forward to the Advent Children pron/plot/cracked-theory/post-movie fics.

Where are they?

Where are the fics concerned with Cloud's mental stability *snorts*? Where are the fics dealing with Rufus' survival (or for that matter, who saved Tseng)? Where are the fics detailing the Great!Adventures of Reeve and- um, and Scarlet? Where are the fics of Vincent and his Adventures of using the Highly Strange and Deadly Mobile Phone? Where are the pron?

*sniffles at the lack of ac-fic love*
