So many good things. \o/

Batman - Batman/Gordon - Quiet for prompts phone call, emptiness, forgiving
Oh the atmosphere in this. It's everything I love about the ship.
Jim used to wish for quiet nights, back when he had Barbara and the kids to come home to. Maybe he should have moved to Chicago with them, but Gotham weighed him down enough to anchor him here. And of course, there were other reasons.


White Collar - Peter/Neal - The storm I've been needing for prompt 5 years later
I've been avoiding a lot of Peter/Neal for fear of infidelity, so imagine my glee in finding such a lovely and hot fic for them.
Peter didn’t ask who taught her how to pick locks and she didn’t look at him pointedly and didn’t say what they’ve been both thinking: he was missing Neal.


Sherlock Holmes 2009 - Mary/Irene - A Secret She Can Keep
As noted above, I tend to shy away from infidelity, but when it cuts both ways, apparently I am all over it. Particularly lovely language in this as well.
She has spent too long watching her husband and his friend solve crimes to be blinded by such an obvious disguise. The curve of the lips and the smooth jaw are familiar from the photograph on Holmes' desk.

ETA: And a second Mary/Irene fic by the same author Passing for the prompt crossdressing which is possibly even more hot, but my kinks are showing. Also, I'm now officially sold on this ship. Seriously. Guh.

Baccano! - Dallas/Eve - Not Like a Fairy Tale
This would be the other type of sibling ship I love, full of hotwrong and delicious, delicious badtouch.
She's everything. But...


Also, per usual, everything [personal profile] blue_soaring has written which so far is:
rdj/hugh on a marvel photoshoot
holmes/watson in prison
rdj/tony stark to make me finally keymash over actor/character slash
holmes/watson rimming. Obvious trend, much? :3
ponderosa: (xmen - mancandy)
And now for my 2009 fic review...

I've never done this before! It's neat to see the full breakdown. I also wrote a lot more SPN than I thought I did.

Total stories: 30 (about 43,000 words)

Fandom Breakdown:

X-men - 7 stories total, 2 of them being RPF. Includes the longest story I wrote this year, which was 7200 words of Logan/Remy porn, and the second longest story, which was 4990 words of Victor/Logan/Remy. Total wordcount: 22,537.

Supernatural - 7 stories total, 2 of them being RPF, 1 of them a crossover (with Smokin' Aces). Most of these were written for the initial round of blindfold_spn. 4/7 feature John or Jeff, of the remaining 3, 2 of them are non-con featuring Dean. Cough. Total wordcount: 6,488

A Song of Ice and Fire - 3 stories total. All short pieces, all featuring Sandor Clegane. Total wordcount: 1,288

Batman (Nolanverse), and Smokin' Aces both got 2 stories out of me.

Fringe, CSI:Las Vegas, Boondock Saints, Baccano!, Harry Potter, Kill Bill, TV Commercials, The Prestige, Owly, and White Collar all got 1 story each out of me.

Kinks I wrote in 2009: daddykink, costumes, asphyxiation, corsetry, pregnant sex, watersports, tickling, pegging, spanking, double penetration, bondage, master/servant.

Turns out a lot of these were for porn_battle or blindfold_spn and I'd never properly cleaned up and posted to DW/IJ, but they're all tidied up now and posted at AO3 and my site. (Well, except for the White Collar one, since I wrote that last night.)

Roundup and links for all fics not posted on DW/IJ: )
ponderosa: (people - jdm is relative to my interests)
A handful of recs. I'm loving the bookmarking feature on AO3 so far. Recs may sound slightly more excitable than usual since they're roughly the main non-spoilery parts of my feedback to the authors.

Spy Game - Tom Bishop/Nathan Muir - Cloak or Dagger - Substantial and plotty and seriously everything that a fic in this fandom should be. Set immediately post-film, it feels like an extension of the canon, with a very organic shift to Tom's point of view and having to deal with the aftermath of the op. The fic has all the best things that I love about the movie, complete with glimpses at the nuances of Tom's training, Nathan's seemingly boundless secrets, and just the right amount of fill-in-the-backstory to make certain scenes even more powerful than they were in the canon. Also notably it doesn't skimp on the fact that they are spies and comes complete with all the intrigue that makes the genre so compelling. Just amazing.

Casino Royale - Bond/M - If Headaches Persist, Shoot Your Agent - This was fabulously fun from start to finish. Fantastic character voices. I found M particularly delightful, as she comes across with a lovely amount of wit and charm beneath the no-nonsense, unruffled exterior. Exactly as she should!

The Breakfast Club - Brian/Bender - Most Likely To - This fulfills all the things that makes Brian/Bender my ship of choice. The reminiscing and touching upon high school came in just the right amounts so as to be neither distracting nor trite. The slow progression of his relationship with Bender was a treat, and felt very natural, real, and believable! The format lent itself beautifully towards the story unfolding with a sense of anticipation. Gorgeous writing and characterisation all around.

Baccano! - Isaac&Miria - And Many More - This manages to capture the very essence of Isaac and Miria with the perfect combination of ingredients. The tone has all the fun and mischief of the way they approach the world and has their voices down pat. Not only did I have that all-too-rare experience of hearing their voices with the dialogue, but it was all so very vivid. The format setting the story up almost as a play worked beautifully to get me in the right headspace to read this. Total and complete awesomesauce.
ponderosa: tdk joker with the bloody smile (batman - wildcard)
I think I had about a day to breathe after getting back from con, but that's being generous. Finished up part two of the big design gig I've been working on, and have been catching up and refining my class projects. Today I worked opening shift for the first time in about a month and it was ridiculously busy, but that just meant I hardly felt the hours go by.

So, I've been playing a bit over on IJ's [insanejournal.com profile] porn_battle. The drabble tally, so far:

X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Stryker/Victor, always about Logan

Baccano!, Fermet/Czeslaw, the mental torture is worse than the physical

Commercials, Mr. Clean/Scrubbing Bubbles scrubbers, raw

Batman: The Dark Knight, Batman/Jim Gordon, night visitor

On a completely different note, anyone who works, lives, or has ties to Oakland and who are interested in community news/blogging/local journalism and activism, OaklandLocal is hosting a meetup on Nov 16th downtown. There are some very inspired folks with great ideas involved in the site, so if you've got any inclination, please consider checking it out!
