I PASSED MY TEST!!!
LOL, whew, now I can stop worrying about it. I know some of you are sick of hearing about it! Anyway, I've not been doing anything productive on the internets for a while now, but there are a few things that I've enjoyed lately that I wanted to share.
First, I have no idea what the proper etiquette for pimping works that you've beta'd is, but I'm gonna do it anyway because it's an awesome fic! (And my beta efforts were mostly "OMG, I LOVE IT!" and she did all the work, so it hardly counts as betaing, lol):
Roll Away Your Stone, I'll Roll Away Mine by thalialunacy , Star Trek 2009, Kirk/McCoy, NC-17
You guys, I just love everything about this fic. Seriously, I can't even really tell you all the things I love without writing a book about it. Which I did, and sent to Thalia, but I don't think ya'll want to read it too. So I'll shorten it to a few bullet points:
- I love the way she plays with the accepted fannish characterizations for the boys with this fic. It's smart and refreshing, and I loved it.
- The whole damn thing is smart. I mean, the dialog, the way she uses fannish cliches, the way she weaves their backstory in, everything. She makes leaps and expects us to be able to follow, and it works.
- Stuff like... Oh hell, I can't even quote anything because every sentence is loaded, and quoting anything will give something away. Just know that I love her descriptive language.
Coming Closer by colls : Pretty, angsty Karl from DOOM! The vidder really made great use of the footage, I think. And, it's Karl's pretty face. What's not to love?
Common Knowledge by elucreh : J2 RPS, R (Maybe NC-17?), characters discover fanfic
Summary: Jared, your fangirls. Fangirls, I believe you already know Jared. Better than he knows himself.
This is so funny, and so damn cute! It's one of the best "characters discover fanfic" fics I've read. And even though there aren't many of those, this one is still amazing. Plus, it celebrates the SPN/J2 fan, and fandom in general, and it made me squeeful to read it.
This video has made me laugh several times over the last week. YOU ARE NOT YOUR GLITTERY EYE MAKEUP!!
And now, I'm off to have dinner, with a few martini's for good measure. Well, one, because I'm a lightweight. Maybe two, because it's a celebration! And then I'll try and drop by the party post at jim_and_bones , because it looks like fun. How are you guys?
