Panels for Insecurity Comics! (The awesome Dinosaur Comics fic someone wrote for Yuletide.) By [livejournal.com profile] lcsbanana and the author. So much awesome! Fandom, ILU.

4 more recs:

Look Up - Ma Vie En Rose. Chris and Ludo, a little older.

Miss Ambrose - House of Wax. Carly/Nick.

As Many as Stars in the Sky - Neverending Story, another untold story (don't have to know the canon.)

Highway Lessons - Wise Child. (I haven't read the books in a long time but this still worked.)

Some stories you don't have to know the canon (I think) to enjoy:

The Hustle
"Déjà vu is the inexplicable feeling that you've done something before when it is in reality a new experience to you, and puking behind the Crazy Russian with a stripper's thong wrapped around your hand cannot in truth be said to be either inexplicable or a new fucking experience..."

Stories in Lockdown
Like the way water in the shower made his tattoos stand out boldly, even against skin that always somehow seemed at least slightly tanned. The way that sometimes, even when he was laughing, he looked like a wolf in the too bright lights.

Birth Pains
Most nights found Virginia sitting in her sway back chair with one hand on either side of her stomach, staring off into space as her skin rose and fell in odd, almost unnaturally violent movements. She tried not to cringe, but often failed.

a life half-lived
Fran believes, but: there's a rhythm beating in Fran's heart and mind that her feet can't follow.

Proof
"Really, Thomasina. You could just have easily said 'what is that?' and I would be no more or less clear as to your meaning. When 'this' and 'that' might as well mean the same thing, what one is experiencing is a breakdown of the rules of grammar."

My Flatpoint, Tis of Thee
"He's right!" said Blackman. "We have to find a way to beat her like Napoleon beat the British at Waterloo, before we exiled to a small island." He paused, thoughtfully. "Hmm... a small island... doesn't sound bad." He got out a personal dictaphone and spoke into it. "Note, get myself exiled to a small island."

I'm sitting in the Concord, NH library right now using one of their computers. Holidays have been great (spent my birthday and Christmas at home and went to the boy's family yesterday) and I'm on my way home now (boy is going to Boston for the week.) I'm basically computerless right now but I'm thinking about buying a mac laptop. Planning to buy online, but, of course, that's a little tricky when I don't have computer access... If anyone has recommendations, I'd be happy to hear them (when I can get online again.) I'm looking in the $1000-and-under range - so far, mostly on Small Dog Electronics and amazon.com...

But guess what? MY YULETIDE STORY IS AWESOME!

Triangulation is a Burn Notice story and it's a Fiona/Michael/Sam triangle and it's wonderful and smart and awesome and makes me like all of them all the more. I would rave about it more if I had time.

I haven't read too many others yet, but here's some I liked:
Heart's Desire (Stardust, focuses on Dunstan)

Insecurity Comics (Dinosaur Comics fandom. It wins. It just SOUNDS like the comics!)

Paradigm Shift (History Boys, Dakin/Irwin. I love stories where the dynamics between two characters change like this. Lovely.)

Bartimaeus's Side of the Story (Bartimaeus Trilogy, gen, Ptolemy is in love with an afrit. Mucho awesome.)

So, I'm kind of terrified that I'm going to die or be seriously injured before next Wednesday and never finish and upload my Yuletide story!

...Though I guess if that happens I'll have bigger things to worry about - or not.

I've written around 700 words today on it but there's lots more to go.

Last night I was procrastinating by looking at [livejournal.com profile] rounds_of_kink. I'm not doing this round, but I saw a Due South prompt by [livejournal.com profile] thady that inspired me - of course I didn't realize til after I'd started writing that it was one of yesterday's prompts.

388 words (due south, wip, pg) )

Also, [livejournal.com profile] monanotlisa wrote a Teyla drabble for my prompt! And it's wonderful.
