ugh.

I Fall Forward, You Fall Flat by roachpatrol is basically just so amazing I have already read it about three times. No-SGRUB AU; Sollux♠Karkat, Karkat♦Gamzee, Sollux♦Aradia I think there's probably something wrong with me that I think Sollux and Karkat's weird awkward teenage mutant hateflirting in this is super romantic, but it completely is. Also this Karkat is, true story, a total babe.

Tumblr has basically ruined what remained of my ability to be coherent. Sorry.

Fic Rec!

I didn't want to rec this until I read the whole thing, and I just finished it! So let me tell you guys that O'er the Dark-Green Sea by [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory is super great. It is a DC Comics AU in which the various members of the Green Lantern and Green Arrow families are either pirates or members of the British Navy. And yeah, whatever, Kyle Rayner and Connor Hawke are cute together in it, but also Jenny is amazing and Hal and Ollie are total dramaqueens and I love [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory's dedication to referencing totally random rogues all the time in her stories, and you should go read this. Yes.
ang: (var» kingdom hearts)
World: Deep Jungle
Gameplay: 12:43
Level: 19? 20? Somewhere in there. If Sora isn't Level 20 yet, he's about to be, because Goofy just leveled.

Okay, so Wonderland confused me A LOT and also, I was possibly too high level for the boss, because I was totally waiting for the Queen of Hearts to be the boss, but SHE WAS NOT. So what I thought I had to do to finish Wonderland was go find Alice and then return her to Wonderland and then fight the Queen of Hearts, but ACTUALLY I am FINISHED with Wonderland!

Important discovery: Tarzan could probably save his world from the Heartless all on his own, because he's just that kickass. )

And an unrelated rec!
Pas de deux by [livejournal.com profile] neery
Figure skating/Reality TV Evan Lysacek/Johnny Weir, but really it's Evan & Anna Trebunskaya friendship fic. 28,000 words. In which Anna is long-suffering, Evan fails at human emotions, and Johnny sort of shows up to be Johnny on occasion.
ang: (dc» ...er.)
So my gameplay time on Kingdom Hearts is like 8:35 now or some shit. I'm still in Wonderland. I also have a question: I have gathered I learn how to fly in Neverland. After I do that, can I come back to Wonderland to get the things I can see, but cannot currently figure out how to reach because I can't jump that far? Also, Jesus Christ where is the fourth piece of evidence hiding? I HATE YOU WONDERLAND.

In other news, a rec!
Adventures in Solitude by [personal profile] riseupwithfists
DC Comics, Teen Titans Jaime Reyes/Tim Drake.
This story is kind of a fix-it AU set in a world where Cassie sort of blew up the team and re-started it with a lot of the old Young Justice crew and some of the people from the Teen Titans era before everything went to shit. But it's not a fix-it so much as a reconcile-it, to quote a commenter on the story. It's also hilarious and awesome and you should read it!

Some recs!

It feels like it's been about forever since I've had a weekend off, and even longer since I've had a weekend off and not spent it, like, being social in person. It's so weird having all this free time. I've been spending it waiting for my actions at Echo Bazaar to refresh and reading fanfiction. I might go for a bike ride later.

Here are two [livejournal.com profile] comicsbigbang stories I liked!:

DC Comics: JSA
The Faculty of Conscious and Especially Of Deliberate Action by [livejournal.com profile] isilfic
Alan Scott, PG-13, 11636 words.
Alan Scott has had a very long life in which lots of things have happened.

Marvel Comics: Young Avengers
Gravity: The Fundamental Things Apply by [personal profile] jazzypom
Eli Bradley/Kate Bishop, R, 21500 words.
[personal profile] jazzypom wrote a really interesting post about Young Avengers fandom and race and female characters a while back, and I have not read Young Avengers in something like four years, but when I saw that she had written a Young Avengers story for Comics Big Bang, I was super excited. This is a story about Eli Bradley, and about superheroes who are not white, and about Eli/Kate. It is very good.


There is also a story from [livejournal.com profile] lgbtfest that I thought was pretty great:
Stupendous Man and Pretty Cool Dude (for an old guy) Join Forces by [livejournal.com profile] mjules
Calvin & Hobbes. In which Calvin visits his Uncle Max and meets Max's boyfriend.
ang: (l*» and then they had sex the end)
DC Comics: The Lost Alchemist by [personal profile] fleur_de_liz. Blue Beetle/Booster Gold, PG. An alternate universe story with magic and gods and fairytales. Y'all, this story is so great. SO GREAT.
ang: (dc» james bondage)
I am slowly but surely unlocking things in Lego Batman, which I have started playing again for no good reason. I actually found the final missing minikit canister in two scenes in the past week, and finally actually finished the minigame version of Gotham Streets (Villain), although not with a good enough time to unlock anything. Blah blah blah, I am bad at videogames.

I am less bad at Echo Bazaar because the point is doing stupid things and seeing what happens. Example! )

Tonight, Evan Lysacek did a "futuristic" dance on DWTS in which he and Anna were vaguely robotic, and Anna was possibly Leeloo, and Evan kept doing terrible robot voices in the training segments. And the same day, [livejournal.com profile] baylop wrote The Most Important Thing, which is a story in which Evan Lysacek is secretly a robot. He has little robot feelings, and I realize that that sounds totally condescending, but whatever, it's Evan Lysacek, and the actual story was sort of bittersweet and I love stories where people are secretly robots. The story has a lot of issues with homophones, so if that sort of thing bugs you, beware, but I enjoyed it. But again, robots and my feelings about them.

I have been failing to finish the last Fionavar Tapestry book, and I don't know why, because I want to know what happens. Possibly because I am sure things will somehow manage to get worse and more tragic for our intrepid heroes.

Today I also got my weekly e-mail from my comics shop telling me what comes out this week. I AM SUPER EXCITED about this week's comics. I hope they don't suck!

edit: Some other things! I am going to be slowly working my way through the [livejournal.com profile] comicsbigbang stories over the next however long, and it might take me a while to read all the ones that sound good, but I WILL READ THEM EVENTUALLY OKAY.

I am shortly going to start sorting out who I'm following on Dreamwidth and start taking people off my Default View on LJ so I'm not getting double posts by looking at both friends lists. I'm also going to start, like, actually giving people access/subscribing back on Dreamwidth, which I have been bad about doing because I don't get notifications like I do on LJ. I'm not ignoring you, I promise!
ang: (l*» ♥)
Normally, I try to restrict myself to one post per day, but I am probably not going to be posting tomorrow since I am going on a date-ish thing right after work. So whatever! Here are some things I have read recently that were pretty all right!


Outtakes by [livejournal.com profile] kartography
Figure Skating RPF, Johnny Weir/Stéphane Lambiel, R
In which Stéphane is annoying, Johnny is adrift, and there is a lot of hugging. The author doesn't have a word count, but it's like three entries on LiveJournal. I laughed a lot, and MAYBE GOT A LITTLE TEARED UP AT PARTS OKAY?


You Wanna be On Top? by [livejournal.com profile] perculious
Figure Skating RPF, Drew Meekins/just about everybody, past Drew/Johnny Weir and Drew/Jeremy Abbott, PG
Drew Meekins has the power to make people win the National Championships. With his penis.


Five Times Justin Indulged His Kink by [livejournal.com profile] americanleaguer
Baseball RPF, Justin Verlander/Joel Zumaya; Ryan Perry; Miguel Cabrera; Jeremy Bonderman; Brandon Inge, NC-17, 3312 words
Originally from the baseball kink meme in which someone requested a story about Justin Verlander having a tattoo kink. There are some hot bits, and also the part with Brandon Inge is hilarious.


hockey bets by some anonymous person
Baseball RPF, Justin Morneau/Joe Mauer, NC-17
I don't know why Mauer and Morneau are somehow exempt from the rule that all baseball slash must be at least kind of sad, or at least bittersweet at best, but I love it, and demand that stories about these two stay primarily about the lolz henceforth.
