And now…some fic recs:
1. Billy the Bureaucrat by fragrantwoods - Battlestar Galactica, Rated: M, 1200 words, Billy fic! I love Billy. This is also Adama/Roslin and it's this author's fault that I went from mildly shipping them to all the hearts in the sky for them. And Billy is so sweet in this and the bit at the end, omg, my heart. You wait for the moment, it'll hit you too.
2. The Agent & the Analyst by dugindeep. CW RPS, Multi-chapter J2 that is so sweet and awesome and plotty. And it's finally finished, so you can read the whole thing! She started writing it while rewatching The West Wing and it has that great voice and dialogue to it that the West Wing had with Jared in a suit being a Secret Service agent and excellent plot and adorable awesome boys and awesomesauce Danneel! I admit to being a little sad that it's over. What will I do with myself now?!
3. Rhapsody in Kaiju Blue (I) by liptonrm - Pacific Rim, Rated: G - M. Omg, you guys. It's five mini-fics in one, including pieces for the Jaegers, Mako/Raleigh (with porn!), Newt, Mako & Stacker and the Jaegers' crew. And you cannot ask me to pick my favorite because omg, I waver back and forth between them all! The things this makes me feel and think and the way it fleshes out this already wonderful world even more, puts you right there, right in those moments, right in that world with such utter beauty. I refuse to pick just one!
4. Leaf by afra_schatz - LOTRips, Viggo/Sean, Rated: PG, 1500 words. The atmosphere in this is beautiful and so vivid that I can smell the bar Sean is in. The depth the author gives this relationship in so few words, the years weaved into this, the complexities of the way they are together. This feels so very much alive to me and is beyond wonderful in the way it made me feel.
5. Strange Attractors by the_deep_magic - Criminal Minds, Rated: Explicit, Garcia/Reid. I have been reading a lot of Criminal Minds fic lately and since I read this one, no other fic has quite hit the spot. Because this? This hit my spot so fucking hard. Idek what made me go for this pairing and I am not a huge fan of overly virginal-Reid, but holy shit. I cannot get this fic out of my head. The porn is astounding, the emotions ripped me to pieces, the way they are together is just like on the show but better and more and just, there is a point closer to the end where I was just crying so hard because I needed them to figure this shit out. Dammit, I'm going to end up reading this again tonight, aren't I?
I’ve been sitting up doing actual things for an hour and a half now and I’m all sweaty and tired again and my sister says I look kind of pale. Humph. (It was probably actually geeking out over Agents Of Shield on the phone with The BFF that did me in). Whatever, I’m going back to the couch to watch Sleepy Hollow now (finally!).
