Fic Rec: Other Ways, Chapter 10/10 by [livejournal.com profile] sahiya.

Summary: A nice, peaceful, relaxing honeymoon. Ha.

A Vorkosigan fic set in the universe of A Deeper Season and What Passing Bells, and follows Seeds in the timeline.

Gods, I love this fic; a character from the books return, alliances are made and compromises reached. This is just so smartly written, and everyone is still so in character.

ETA: I really want to watch the SPN episode. Like a lot. I will be strong and not read the spoilers. Be strong, be strong.

recs... crack is my friend

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

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. [livejournal.com 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

[livejournal.com 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.

[livejournal.com profile] devikun has written 85 pron.

I'm eating left-over from yesterday's Christmas lunch at [livejournal.com 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.

Aral Vorkosigan/Simon Illyan slash!

naanima: (slash this - lowdownbeat)
Aral Vorkosigan/Simon Illyan slash! OMFG! *squeals*

You have no idea how this make me feel. I LOVE Aral and Cordelia, but the thought of Aral's personality and life outside of Cordelia (and vice versa) is damn fascinating. And this fic shows us Aral with Simon Illyan. My fangirl heart flutters.

So, go and read The Councils of Despair.

Now, I shall go and read farscape het for Aeryn and John together is hot.

This post is a collection of fanfic recs from various fandom that I have been meaning to make. Strangely enough they don't just consist of anime/manga. I'm sort of proud.


I have just discovered The Alters! series. It is collection of pic drabbles set post ep 51. The PICS are GORGEOUS WORKS OF ART! GORGEOUS! The drabbles details Ed's travel in 'our' world (Munich, Zeppelins, and Churchill? It is our world). What makes it wonderful is the fact that Ed has a traveling companion, a man named Masuta Ichiro, this world's replica of Roy Mustang. It will make you laugh, it will make you cry, and Hoenheim's fate made me want to cuddle Ed until that look would go away from his eyes.

The series can be broken into two sections. The first dealing with Ed and Masuta's adventures in 'our' world, the second detailing their adventures once Ed returns to 'his' world. The former is interesting for the glimpses of lives of familiar characters. Lust's role in 'our' world will make you giggle like a school girl, and the single glimpse of Al and Nina will make you smile and at the same time tear up for Ed, and when you find out just who Masuta's parents are *cackles*. People's reactions to Masuta ranges from hilarious to heart breaking. Some of Masuta and Roy interactions can be heart wrenching in a completely understated way while other times you are giggling your head off, 'cos while Roy and Masuta may have similar characteristics they are completely different in other departments.

Just go and READ! READ!
