I love love love love love (and almost never see) fic set in the Star Trek universe but outside of Starfleet and on Earth. It's an amazing premise for a fusion fic, and really emotionally captivating.

What I knew about Evidence 24 hours ago: There’s something called hearsay, and that’s no good.

24 hours later… I don’t even know that. (This is a lie; I’m also good on FRE 702 and Daubert. As long as every evidence question is about expert testimony, I’ll pass! What do you suppose my chances are?)

Vid rec. Seriously, this vid is amazing. )

And so I watched it a bunch of times today, because it’s one of those examples of beauty and meaning and resonance from the most unexpected direction, and I am always so grateful when a fan-creator blindsides me that way.

I like that bit right in between fic and meta. Accordingly, let me rec Gary the Cameraman: A Profile by [personal profile] lettered, which is about Iron Man 3 and also about comic books and what media does right and does wrong and what to do with that.

The best part of being back in the fandom is that sense of incredible relief you get when other people say the smart things you were trying to think and couldn't quite manage. IM3 reaction posts today are like the biggest sigh of relief ever.

results of my last post, for my own reference )
dragojustine: (Science fiction)
First, predictable insta-rec: Bohemian Rhapsody, by [personal profile] cesperanza, in which Sherlock takes a case for Lady GaGa DaDa.

Second, the following are the two best images on the entire internet of the past week: Number One and Number Two.

I'm not sure what that combination says about me.

Third, still unemployed and psychologically fucked up about it. Send job offers best wishes, please?
dragojustine: (Science fiction)
Because I would be remiss if I didn't pass it on, The Periodic Table of Storytelling. There should totally be some kind of random-element-generator prompt meme, Y/N?

Via [personal profile] cofax7, the Guardian is doing some kind of SF thing.

Calvin & Hobbes futurefic gets me right where I live. Have Hobbes and Bacon part one and two.

Aliens, zombies, and plauges, oh my )

And the life update )
dragojustine: (dream a little bigger)
I have not been around. I miss you all. Will be at Muskrat Jamboree in two weeks, if anyone else on my flist will be? Limited participation in fandom due to serious and mounting procrastiation problem and associated guilt.

San Francisco )

Adam Lambert's Glam Nation Live CD just hit today (and you can listen online). I feel a little ridiculous about being the sort of fangirl who pays $17 for a CD of songs I not only already have, but already purchased, but apparently that is the type of fangirl I am. I just desperately needed a good sound quality copy of 20th Century Boy, because my favorite current artist covering my favorite song from one of my favorite movies (because it's his favorite song from his favorite movie too)? That is the stuff fangirl flail is made of.

Have a fic rec: I love slave fic. I can't help it. I love it- I love the ones that are modern day AU and the ones that are pseudo-historical. I love the crazy-BDSM-institutions ones and the sex slavery ones and the regular old not-sex-specific slavery ones. I love the ones with angsty morally tormented owners and the ones with oblivious owners. I love the ones that are contractual and voluntary and the ones that are outright non-con and the ones that are sappy slow-build falling-in-love dealing-with-the-dubcon ones. So I give you Patience, a Steady Hand, by Helenish. It's the best kind of pseudo-historical, cheerfully anachronistic but detailed and immersive, and it's got the most amazing slow build and fascinating characters and a happy ending that made me sniffly.

My roommate just posted an incredibly passive-agressive sheet of paper on the fridge labeled "Clean Kitchen Rules." My anger at this is entirely disproportionate because I am just so sick of living with her, so I'm choosing to soothe myself by hunting through my history and posting more recs. Oh, and oogling Tommy Joe. (Deep breaths, Justine. Deep breaths)

First, just one for White Collar (not because there isn't great stuff there, but I've seen very few that strike me as different): Never Leave A Trace by [personal profile] sam_storyteller, which is an absolutely haunting bit of magical realism. It's meaty and fascinating and powerful and certainly different enough to satisfy me.

Sherlock and Inception )
dragojustine: (Inception)
So, Johnny Weir finally came out, eh? (And the internet gets so predictably sarcastic)

I adore [personal profile] watersword forever for showing me this (and also every other clip of him singing on YouTube). Joseph Gordon-Levitt, people: my new fannish boyfriend. ADORABLE. OMG. CRUSH CRUSH CRUSH.

Year round-up )

Yuletide recs )

Babbling about movies, just for my own keeping-track purposes )
dragojustine: (Kaylee delight)
[personal profile] watersword is deeply awesome and I adore her. She comes with pretty cool friends, too.

Happy Halloween! If you haven't already seen it, go watch Zombie Jamboree. Also, fic where Adam is a zombie, and fic where Tommy is a vampire. They are both excellent, because [personal profile] blue_soaring is one of the best Adam/Tommy authors out there.

I continue in my struggle to figure out how to stop procrastinating and actually get my work done. Signs are not good. But I absolutely love my life right now, so that's okay.

On a less happy note: Okay, now Glee is just FUCKING with me. So much potential for awesome, so much fail in execution! The only good thing to come out of that is the fact that I've now heard Anthony Head singing Sweet Transvestite. Dynamite. (I had known he played the role, but I knew that back before I had seen any Buffy, so I didn't care)
dragojustine: (Kurt)
life )

So TV with spaceships is terribly lacking these days, and I am left with Glee. Ah, Glee. )

In that vein, have two great (though very different) Kurt gen fics.
dragojustine: (indeed)
Life- irrelevant to all you )

Everybody in the world has already seen SG-1 The Movie. Fantastic pick-me-up.

Glam rec: The Good Times Are Killing Me, which is a month old but just surpassed Drive-By Devotion as my favorite Tommy characterization ever. I adore when he's all dudely and inarticulate and dirty-talking and has the gender politics of a caveman but is secretly pleased as punch at the idea of being the girl.
dragojustine: (whimsy)
I am:

Wildly, stupidly, terrifyingly over-scheduled.

Enjoying the hell out of New York, school, and new people, and really everything except my lack of free time.

Endlessly indebted to [personal profile] sothcweden for sending me links to this video and this video, displaying an uncanny sense of when I really needed a fannish pick-me-up. (Oh, I will miss LP so much. And how could I possibly love Adam and Tommy this much?)

Seriously bummed out by the fact that apparently I will never get laid again. (Invisible to law school boys. How do people in New York hook up, except in horrendously loud, crowded, terrible bars?)

Incredibly grateful for how easy it is to drift in and out of fandom. I can have no time to breathe but, after days or a weeks of being entirely absent (and getting defriended left and right), get a rec for a sharp, intelligent, gorgeously written first-time fic or a notice of an update to a truly glorious crack wip and feel like I've never left. I don't know what I'd be doing right now without that.
dragojustine: (Just us girls)
Thank you so much to everybody. Really, I am completely blown away- I've been doing the online-friends thing for a decade, and it's still startling to me sometimes how incredible and kind and supportive people can be. Thanks especially to [personal profile] astolat, [personal profile] grey_bard, and [personal profile] watersword. (It turns out that [livejournal.com profile] par_avion, [livejournal.com profile] lierdumoa, and [personal profile] rusty_halo are pretty awesome too), and there are more of you who I would totally like to meet any time.

Anyway, personal crisis more or less disposed of, because fangirls are wonderful; back to studying!

But first, a word to the wise: Last week's Leverage was awesome like puppies and cupcakes.

Also, thanks to [personal profile] sothcweden for the awesome tip: this Tommy/Allison kinkmeme fic is the hottest het I've read in ages. Yowza. (It's almost enough for me to break out that Adam/Tommy/Allison thing I keep not writing because I'm afraid the fandom will hate me. They are all just way too hot not to be sleeping together, is all.)
dragojustine: (NYC)
As of tomorrow morning, I will have no internet save by phone. The idea of putting everything I own into the hands of some random guy in brown shorts is nervous-making at best.

Still kissing many frogs at Kradam Big Bang, but Simon's is cute cute cute cute cute, almost debilitatingly cute. And Ready Now is... *flails* It's, like, romantic and plotty and gripping and mesmerizing and the ending! The ending of this fic! Is like the ending of every romantic comedy I've ever rolled my eyes through times a million, except for being totally awesome.

Apparently I have a ticket to see Zachary Quinto in Angels in America in November. Because I am moving to NEW YORK and apparently this is what I do now- hook up with awesome fangirls to see Zachary fucking Quinto in a well respected off-Broadway play revival and then go party just because I can. How is this my life?

This almost makes up for the complete and total panic.
dragojustine: (television)
Summer TV roundup, including Leverage and Eureka spoilers. Long and babbly. )

And two recs- SGA and Glam )

I always forget how many frogs you have to kiss to find the good stuff during Big Bang season, not to mention that I forgot that Kradam Big Bang even existed at all (I have so many more to get to!). This fic reading binge has involved lots of back-button usage and a huge backlog that I will eventually give up on, but it sure has been fun.
dragojustine: (Hardison)
Leverage! )

Have been reading so much long fic! Can't possibly keep up with [livejournal.com profile] spn_j2_bigbang, even reading only most appealing of the non-sequel RPS complete-AU ones. And then I just realized that [livejournal.com profile] stargate_summer just started posting. Aaack. Help! Recs?

recs, essentially original fic )
dragojustine: (Squee)

Basically the only possible response to this is Oh, Adam. Baby, never change.

(Also slay-me cute: Adam messing around during a sound check)

Between that and finally reading Zombies Ate Your Idols (I giggled like a maniac from start to finish. Which, okay, I do not do bandom. But after literally years of having people pimp it at me, and seeing picspams and even reading the occasional fic? This is the first thing to ever make me think that I might kind of adore Gerard and Frank. I, uh, might be downloading discography now.) I am going to be grinning like a loon all day.
dragojustine: (Spike)
The Boy came, and it was Good. The best thing about the Boy is that I can watch fannish things with him, and it often feels quite a lot like watching fannish things with fangirls. I certainly don't need any of the reflexive self-censorship, or for that matter the embarrassment cringe reaction, that so often comes from showing straight boys fannish things.

(The Boy loves due South far more than I do, and has limitless patience for my crush on Callum, and in fact watched Hard Core Logo with me and was really struck by it. Win)

And we went paddling, and hiking, and saw Cirque du Soleil (Also Win, of course. God, people doing physically improbable things to loud music while wearing feathers and rhinestones. LOVE)

Stayed up until 3 am last night reading Future Legend- one of the better post-apocalypses I've ever read.

Don't trip off the glitz )

Those pictures are going to keep me so happy today.
