So there was twenty-six moments of the history between Ryan and Seth and oh it's so happy-making. And then there was Zach fic which turns into Zach/Seth and makes a whooole lotta sense.

Then. Sweet-but-sorta-angsty-and-oh-why-won't-people-just-be-more-open-about-their-love? Hermione/Ginny. And a Grubbly-Plank/Tonks sorta fairytale. Plus Hermione/Ginny that shows the difference between theory and practice.

Feb. 26th, 2005 07:33 pm did i mention The OC has eaten my brain?

Summer-centric fic. "She's just weirded out by the fact that after years of friendship, she isn't the one that Marissa has a crush on."

I don't normally (or ever) rec music videos, but this one just makes me so very happy and reminds me of how squeeful Alex/Marissa is.

New fandom of 2005: The O.C. I discovered I like the Seth/Ryan. A lot. Like, Seth/Ryan from Marissa's point of view and some Marissa-angst. Or Seth/Ryan from Summer's point of view, and with a fantastic Summer voice. Or Seth/Ryan with Anna/Summer happening outside, which is the most perfect thing there could ever be. (Though the companion piece, which is just the Seth/Ryan sex with lines like "How could anyone think men were ugly? Had no one seen this boy’s shoulders?" does rock muchly. And Seth/Ryan creeping into a very hot Anna/Summer/Seth fic? That is also of the good. Oooh, and sweet Seth/Ryan as seen through Kirsten's eyes. And you can't really go wrong with Seth and Ryan watching porn. Or even just Seth and Ryan playing a game on the PlayStation. It's all good.

I also like the girlslash. The O.C. is nice and kind in that it not only provides best friends like Marissa and Summer, or antagonism-turned-friendship scenarios like Anna/Summer, but the gorgeous canonicalness of Marissa/Alex.

In other fandoms, there was a Babysitters Club/Angel Fred/Janine crossover of much fabulousness and fractals. In Harry Potter there was sweet and angsty Hermione/Ginny, and also Hermione/Ginny sex as you have never seen it before, trust me. And for anyone familiar with Dancing At Lughnasa, you need to read incesty femmeslash that is just so perfectly in-character. Yes.

yuletide recs, most of which have already been recced to death, but here goes anyway:

A World Of Normal Girls (Bend It Like Beckham)
"...It doesn't bloody well matter what I want. I can't have anything I want. Not football, not university, and bloody well not you!" Jess/Jules. Lovely.

Growing Up (Chronicles of Narnia)
Susan and Lucy grow up. Poignant and perfect.

Just Between Us (Absolutely Fabulous)
Saffron and Patsy form an uneasy alliance of sorts. This is perfect, caputirng the characters to a T, and being just as funny as the source material.

Killer Instinct (Jonathan Creek)
His fingers were tangled in his curls, and he was looking at her with something like fondness as he asked her again if she was back in the world of the living. At times, Maddy reflected, Jonathan looked like nothing so much as a charmingly smug cherub....And sometimes he just looked like a socially maladjusted right little prat, she thought sourly. Hee hee. Brilliant.

Moving Forward (The Day After Tomorrow)
"Civilization is at a critical turning point and no one needs to witness the rebirth of cutesy romance." Post-movie, Sam/Laura, great characterisation. The world's changed, but human emotions stay the same. Excellent.

subtext (Mona Lisa Smile)
Betty/Giselle and oh my. Gorgeousness.

Turning Forty (Four Weddings and a Funeral)
Gareth/Matthew fic. Squee!

Superficial (RPF - HIGNFY)
Much, much love for this. What I said at the time: "Black silk boxers! And the music and Angus only associating it with seduction, and Paul flirting with Angus and, the not talking, and the mannerism-sharing, and the no sex and the table, and this just rocks. Yes. Love it. Lovelovelovelovelove." Makes little sense if you haven't read it, which is why you should.

Share or Shaft? (RPF - HIGNFY)
It is a beautiful world when yuletide produces two HIGNFY fics. This incorporates various aspects of fanon and canon and turns it into a nifty "ooooh!" story. Eeee. Much love. "But I'll have a go. Parrots?"

Also, there's the HIGNFY Secret Slasha stories, which are all wonderful. :D

Finally, non-ficathon related: In The Genes by celeria (Harry Potter)
A nifty response to a bit of additional canon. Very effective.

Experiment (Harry Potter) by anna_maria
Pansy/Parvati. Parvati has her own idea of what it should be like with a girl, and Pansy is not at all what she imagined - but it doesn't mean that the more unpleasant reality doesn't turn her on. R.

Epiphany by switchknife (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
Picard has never been good with children. Picard and Wesley, and it's just so perfect. Oh yes.

Through The Bottom Of An Empty Glass by elfinessy (Black Books)
Bernard/Manny, told from three different points of view. Fran: I like Manny. He'll make someone a really good husband one day. Bernard, probably. Makes me happy, so it does. There's suggestive carrot-peeling, too.

Implosion of the Time-Space Continuum by randominity (Harry Potter/RPS)
The pairing is Daniel Radcliffe/Harry Potter. I don't think I need to say any more. :)

Hair by ticca (Harry Potter)
A Lily/Narcissa drabble that is just perfect.

Hot As An Oven by musesfool (Harry Potter)
Remus and Sirius bake a cake. And have sex. And take my breath away just by kissing. Guh.

Letters With Lockhart by isiscolo (Harry Potter)
Snape/Lockhart. This shouldn't work quite as well as it does. It is brilliant. Physical features do not affect me, as I am attracted to intellect and ability, not to mere form. It is your letters that excite every part of me.

History Fell in the Heart Broke Open
by alibi_factory (Harry Potter/RPS)
I don't think I recced this when I first came across it, tut tut. Umbridge/Margaret Thatcher. Yes, you read that right.

Hallo Spaceboy by thieving_gypsy (HP)
Part of the Fairy Boys series. Once upon a Thursday morning, Peter Pettigrew had a sexuality crisis. It features the following line - Whoops, sorry I knocked the table over with my PENIS! What more do you need to know?

Growing Up by celeria (HP)
Sirius/Remus/Harry. Threesome. Sex. Hot hot boy sex. Also, wonderful characterisations. But mostly hot hot boy sex.

Sep. 2nd, 2004 11:21 am Recs. Obviously.

One Can Survive Everything, Nowadays by siriaeve (RPF)
Fic featuring Oscar Wilde and Johnny Depp. Need I say anymore?

Ticket Machine by diceandzombies (Harry Potter)
Stan Shunpike fic. Excellent.

Multiple Choice Questions by Netgirl (Harry Potter)
Hermione loves the multiple-choice portion of exams. Her mind instantly recognizes the right answer and ignores any trick answers or half-truths her professors have slipped in to trip their students up. Poignant but true.

A Pornish Storybook by nimori (Harry Potter)
Art and fic, a lovely story about Harry and Sirius. I say "lovely" and mean "sweet" and "adorable" but it's also rather porny as well, I should probably mention. It will make you go "guh", it really will.
