As some of you may know I haven't been online much recently due to my English Lit exam so I've missed a lot of chat, a lot of gossip and a truck load of fic and television. Therefore I declare myself absolutely blameless for not realising how fricking fantabulous Stargate: Universe is. I'm catching up with Skyplayer at the moment and just finished episode 3. Holy Ancient Starship! I think I've found my new favourite show. Wow. I love everything about it from the scripts to the characters to the actors to the sountrack. I am so on-board.

And just for the record, I really don't feel NCIS: LA. I'll tell you what annoys me most. It's the stupid music that accompanies the 'comedy' moments. As far as I'm concerned a soundscore should compliment specific scenes, not point them out. It's like they are are using the music to scream, 'Hey, everybody, it's funny! Laugh! For god's sake LAUGH!' The comedy isn't the music so it won't make a scene funnier when the lines suck so bad. You shouldn't really notice the music; it should blend. For me, it just plain grates. I'm not saying the series is totally bad, but I'm hearing that it's doing quite well in the ratings and I'm just not sure why.

Have been playing the new Batman: Arkham Asylum game on my PC this week. It's awesome and if I could I'd sit and play day and night and day again. And then night. Then I might get some sleep. Until it's time to play again. I am, of course, rubbish at it, my main problem being that whenever I try to sneak up on a hostile to do a silent takedown, I accidentally whip out my Batarang and boink him on the back of the head -- at which point the hostile turns around and shoots me at point blank range with an automatic weapon. Every time.

Lastly, have been watching Torchwood: Children of Earth again. Made it up to and including Day 3. Can't go any further. Nope. I Just can't. Shall watch more SG:U and this week's NCIS and NCIS: LA instead.

I am back after a month-long, self-imposed internet ban. Exam. Fucked it up. Trying not to get down about it. Now I'm catching up on emails and bookmarking all the fic I missed. If there's anything you'd like me to see feel free to link me up. Does anyone have any Torchwood or Doctor Who news?

Ianto's Box is still unopened, although I have now managed to move it from one side of the room to the other. I feel this week might be the week. I have turned a corner. Not a large corner like on a road but more like a Fruit Corner. This week I just might lick the lid of life. Am I mixing up my yoghurts again?

In other news I'm all caught with SPN (except for last night's so don't spoil me!) and I'm obsessed with it, I'm not at all convinced by NCIS: LA, and I'm so glad to see my Tony DiNozzo again. This is my first time of actually watching each ep week by week and it's already driving me crazy. Need more!!! NOW!

Lastly, 7 DAYS UNTIL THE HUB 3, BABY!!! I can't wait to hug James Marsters again and I feel much calmer about hugging Gareth for a third time. I'm an old hand at this now. The scary shit will be in two weeks when [ profile] kitty_poker1 and I will be hugging Nicholas Brendon. OMGFAINTZ!

NCIS Recs!

Memories Are Made Of This -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

A glimpse of Tony and Gibbs in the future. 1st Person POV

Mr Ed by [ profile] smallwaldo -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

“Yeah, see… thing is, if I sit, I’m not so sure I’ll be able to get up again,” Tony confessed. (Episode Tag for “South by Southwest”)

Here is some random stuff-like stuff for you.


Involuntary Voyeur by Sperrywink -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

McGee might have kidded Tony about accidentally watching him have sex with a girl, but when Gibbs enters the picture, there's just no way.

Classic by Sperrywink -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

Gibbs wakes up from his coma different: A little softer and a lot more gay.

DC Comics/Marvel

All-New Batman, All-New Batdickery by [ profile] shananagin -- Dick Grayson (Batman)/Roy Harper (Red Arrow)

There's a new Batman in Gotham. Roy comes to visit.

Yadda Yadda by [ profile] shananagin -- Dick Grayson (Nightwing)/Wade Wilson (Deadpool) (Marvel crossover)

Short two-comment ficlet. Best. Crack. Ever

Shut Up! by [ profile] shananagin -- Wade/Nate (Marvel)

An piece done only in dialogue. Nate and Wade have sex. Yeah, that's it.

Of Bonsais and Bondage by [ profile] ava_jamison -- Dick Grayson (Nightwing)/Tim Drake (Robin)

Ivy's learned something new. So will Robin.

Worthy by [ profile] ladyk_d_azrael -- Dick Grayson (Batman)/Future!Damian Wayne (Robin)

D/S, spanking, smut. Dick is about 30 years old here, and Damian is 17 (which is over the legal age of consent where I come from. He’s fictional, ok? I’m not advocating you do this with your own teenage sidekick IRL).

Speaking of Damian Wayne, I have started a new community (for the ten people who actually like him): [ profile] we_love_damian [ profile] we_love_damian [ profile] we_love_damian. Well, it was time [ profile] we_love_dick had himself a baby brother ~g~ Please come join because Damian is the best thing to happen to DC Comics in a long time. in a while. for months. for weeks since Tuesday.

Lastly, because you've all been so patient, here are some Hilarious Spiderman Scans.

Does anyone know or can anyone take an educated guess when the BBC will start filming season 4 of Torchwood?

My box from Forbidden Planet containing my wave 2 TW figures remains unopened. It's become a sort of a symbol now and I shall only open it once I have gained complete acceptance of you-know-what.

I will keep you updated on Ianto's Box as my mental state becomes less and less questionable. Yep, I am definitely still in the realms of Insane, but I'm starting to slide back into the less volatile region of Crackers. I finally got around to reading Battle for the Cowl and I've decided that Damien is fantastic. I've always liked him even though he is a dangerous little shit, but I think he's going to make a fascinating and fun Robin. See? Crackers.

Also, I got bored with watching Smallville season 6, so I decided to re-watch season 1 of NCIS. I really need to picspam Tony's hair. And the Iguana scene.

Emo Time )

(I'm aware that I owe one billion and eight emails to various people and I shall answer them all tomorrow, I pwomise!)

I'm crawling through these two fandoms at snails' pace. My general fandom glee seems to have wilted of late. I can't seem to muster up my YAAAAYYYY!!! factor. Still enjoying the feel of shiny new fandoms, though. There's something about picking through fic which is entirely new and finding that one genuine diamond amongst the piles of cubic zirconium.

Anyway, here's some recs.

Criminal Minds

What Goes Around by Rushlight, Amy, Diagonalist, and Gin. Reid/Gideon.

Gideon introduces Reid to the wonders of socialization, among other things.

Beautifully written. Thank you, [ profile] snowpuppies for rec'ing this to me in the first place.

My Lonely Heart by Rushlight. Reid/OMC, Reid/Gideon.

Reid's new boyfriend turns out to be anything but the man of his dreams.

Please read the fic warnings on this one.

A Rock and a Hard Place by Rushlight. Reid/Hotch.

Reid and Hotch are kidnapped during the course of an investigation.

Reid gets kidnapped a lot in this fandom, doesn't he? Poor woobie. No warning on this one, but I think there should be. I don't want to give anything away, but watch out for the non-con sorta. You can beat me around the head later for that, but I'd rather not be responsible for anyone reading something that might upset. Great fic.

Misdirection by Miriam Heddy. Reid/Gideon.

Read and Gideon talk

I love Reid in this. I could hear his voice co clearly.


Rictus by Sequitor.

This is the story of how Gibbs met Tony. It's long and plotty with spot-on characterisation. It's a hard fic to read because of the subject matter being dealt with, which is the investigation of the rape and murder of several children in Baltimore. Very unpleasant and the fic itself has a very gritty feel to it. Brilliant, and I completely believe this is how Gibbs and Tony met. It's technically gen, but if you squint (which I do permanently now anyway) it can be easily read as pre-slash.

Fic Pimp!

For long, plotty and original NCIS Gibbs/DiNozzo fics, look no further than Lady Ra.

Some of you in the SGA fandom may recognise her from her McShep classic Loving Rodney.

Back to the NCIS fics, Tears and History are great, but I love Sensing Evil for its weird and unexpected supernatural creepiness. Consider this one definitely AU!

I'm currently reading the beautiful McShep verse Nantucket and it reminds me of all the wonderfully written fics in that fandom and it's prompted me to start my Top Twenty Fics of all Time. Multi-fandom. I think it would be interesting to figure it out, post and then come back to it every six months to see how much it's changed. Right now I'm just trying to make a random list of memorable fics from all my fandoms. Erm, this might take some time, especially as I intend to re-read all the serious contenders. Eeep.

Damage by [ profile] xanthestories -- Gibbs/DiNzzo

When Gibbs investigates a minor robbery, he uncovers something much more sinister. The resulting investigation has unexpected and far-reaching consequences.

This is a long and plotty H/C fic. It's brilliantly written, in-character, realistic and the hurt and comfort aspects are perfectly balanced. You will need a strong stomach because the subject matter is serious stuff. Read the warnings inside the link and be aware that this isn't a fic that's going to gloss over the unpleasant bits. What it does do is present a heart-squashing story of an adult forced to finally face something that he's kept locked away in his head since he was a child. It's hard-going, but running along side the horror is a beautiful and realistic love story.

Fellow Spander fans, if you enjoyed Alexandria's Waiting Here, you'll love this. And be prepared to feel the need to rush off and hug something or someone on a regular basis, which reminds me, has anyone seen my dog? Large? Black and hairy? Last seen with an expression of 'Oh god, no, not again,' on his face?

I finished watching season 6 of NCIS this week and my reaction is as follows: Eeeep!

Under the cut is a slightly more detailed reaction:

Eeep etc etc )

And now for some fic pimps

A Thousand Miles (Mend What is Broken) by [ profile] chatona -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

“I want you to come home, Tony.”

This was originally rec'd to me by [ profile] motschekiebchen who was one of the many people people who responded to my plea for NCIS recs (and thank you, btw, to everyone who commented with what were some brilliant fics). Anyway, why should you read this one? Because it's beautifully written. Simples!

Tony's Dry Spell by [ profile] xanthestories -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

Tony finds out the *real* reason for his recent lack of hot sex.

This is a tag fic to Ep 6x18 Knockout, and it's total crack. Very funny. Also, within this here fic, the author explains one of the biggest mysteries surrounding the entire show. I totally buy it. Do you?

That's it for recs, and I would like to end this post on a slight change of subject. My post-NCIS telly-watching project is Criminal Minds. I am nine eps into season 1. OMG, REID!!! NEW WOOBIE!!!! ~huggles him~ I'm loving the father and son thing going on between him and Gideon. But who to slash him with ...? Wait, do I have to slash everyone? Yeah, pretty much.

I told myself I was going to watch all the seasons before I started reading the fanfic, but as it turns out, I'm far too impatient for that. Who knew?!?!

Puppy Love by [ profile] xanthestories -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

Tony's true inner self is revealed – as is his heart's desire…

Why should you read this? Because Tony gets turned into a puppy and it's damn cute.

Wants and Needs by Katherine -- Gibbs/DiNozzo

After a personal tragedy, Tony realises he wants more

Very slow and sweet and romantic. It's what I like to call a Sunday morning fic. Erm, I realise it's now Monday ...

Anyone got any recs for me? I'll take almost anything as long as it's Gibbs/DiNozzo with a happy ending. Please NO fics where either Gibbs or Tony die.

Also, which are the best comms to join?

I finished watching NCIS season 2 this morning and under the cut is my very spoilery reaction.

Click and scroll down )
suki_blue: <lj user=suki_blue> (Default)
Did I say dancing and romancing? Sorry, I meant telly and biscuits.

After my Firefly marathon yesterday, I quite fancied more Joss, and after the Marstersclass, I also fancied some Btvs and School Hard. So I watched that episode last night and followed it up with Spike as blondie bear in Harsh Light of Day. My goodness James looks so young! And bare-chested. And biteable.

Today I have been watching Torchwood Season 1 on Blu-Ray. Now you might be tempted to say I'm daft for buying it on Blu-Ray when I already own it on DVD, but I can tell you it's worth the money for the unbelievably beautiful picture. You can count all the cute little freckles on Eve's face, even the ones you didn't realise she had. And John Barrowman's teeth gleam like the sun. I now have teeth-shaped spots in front of my eyes when I close them.

Lastly I shall tonight commence Operation NCIS. I have three whole seasons to watch. I saw season 1 a few months ago and fell a little bit in love Tony. Now there's a man I would like to strip naked and cover with Muller Fruit Corner.

I have also pre-ordered Queer as Folk Seasons 4 and 5. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
