Mirrormask - Helena

Fic - All Made of Stardust 1/? (SPN/Doctor Who)

Title: All Made of Stardust
Fandom: Supernatural, Doctor Who
Disclaimer: They belong to Eric Kripke, the CW and the BBC
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Consider everything up through the beginning of Supernatural Season 7 and Doctor Who Series 6 fair game
Beta: sarcasticval, my usual enabler

Summary: That one story where it turns out Castiel has a fobwatch. Guest starring Chuck Shurley and a 1963 blue police public call box.

Note: Surprisingly serious crack. I don't know why I've become convinced that Castiel was secretly carrying around a fobwatch this whole time, but there it is. Feedback would be HUGELY appreciated.

Mirrormask - Helena

Fic: Pieces of You (The Island 2005) - 1/1

And some more clean up and archiving for the weekend.

Title: Pieces of You
Fandom: The Island (2005)
Disclaimer: They belong to Michael Bay and Dreamworks
Rating: PG
Prompt: I want to know how reintegration goes after the clones are revealed to the world/it is revealed to the 'survivors' that they are actually clones and not the remnants of the human race, especially the difficulties in dealing with someone who is, at least genetically, identical to you. Things I would love to see: the return of memories a la Lincoln 6 Echo's dreams and drawings, the role of L6E and Jordan 2 Delta in the new world, and the worldwide backlash.

Summary: Life would be so much easier for Jordan 2 Delta if she weren't constantly reminded that it's not her life

Notes: Originally written for Grevling for Yuletide 2010. It was the first time I'd written as a pinch hitter and the prompt hit on themes from a partially written story that I'd started but ultimately hadn't gone anywhere. It ended up being the excuse I needed to dust it off and finish it. It was also an opportunity to work with a canon that never really satisfied me: The Island is a film that could have been a really great science fiction piece but ended up being a typical Michael Bay movie (which is to say, long on explosions and thin on plot and character development). Oh well. That's why we have fanfic in the first place, right?

Fic - X-Men: First Class/Cable & Deadpool - Meta-Sexual 1/1

So, it's kind of been an embarrassingly long time since I used this journal to post anything. And yet I'm feeling not too bad about all of this at the moment.

Title: Meta-Sexual (or How Deadpool Failed to Get Charles and Erik to Declare Their Undying Love For Each Other)
Author: irenak
Fandoms: X-Men: First Class/Cable & Deadpool
Rating: PG
Warnings: Crack. Crackity crack crack. Also, gratuitous meta. Gratuitous abuse of the fourth wall. Gratuitous use of Deadpool.
Notes: Originally a response to this prompt at 1stclass_kink. Now cleaned up and posted everywhere, because I can procrastinate like a boss.

Summary: "I ship Cherik," Wade tells him, as if this explains everything. "I've even got a t-shirt that says so."

Trigun - Wolfwood - Stumble and Fall

R.I.P. Lis Sladen

Well, that sucks.

Doctor Who actress, Elisabeth Sladen, dead at 63

She's only three years older than my parents :(

I can't say Sarah Jane was my Companion, or even that I had a particularly big affection for the original Doctor Who run. But she actively worked behind the scenes to turn Sarah Jane into the kind of feminist icon little girls could look up to at a time when those were few and far between and her episodes in the new series were lovely. And to be honest, I adored the fact that this fabulous, middle-aged woman was being given her own action-adventure series where everyone within a ten block radius seemed to have an enormous crush on her for no reason other than, well, who wouldn't? She was able to hold her own on screen against both younger companions and younger Doctors and overall, just seemed to be a pretty awesome person.

There's not much of better legacy to leave behind than that.

Politics - Rahm/Stephen - Epic Bromance

Stephen Colbert is smart and hot and stuff

Jon Stewart will always be first in my heart, but he's never testified before Congress. And, really, I don't know what's better, that someone invited Colbert out to talk about migrant workers in the first place because no one else would or the congressmen who are somehow shocked and appalled that he showed up in character. Because they live in a cultural black hole, apparently.

On an unrelated note, ::sigh:: This journal has been sorely neglected. I really need to start cleaning it up and figure out where I want to go with it in the future.

Politics - Rahm/Stephen - Epic Bromance

Guys, guys! Our President is adorable!

Also, he is turning into Jed Bartlet right before our very eyes! It is almost creepy.

Obama visits independent Iowa bookstore.

The raw video also has some additional walking & talking with people outside the shop.

Oh, oh, and GIP (hi, can you tell I've been trying to write in here again by re-embracing my love of political wonkery?)

Mirrormask - Helena

Things and life and whatnot

Weekend was spent hanging out with fadingembers and jaina. Mostly they have tweeted and/or written up everything we did on Saturday, but to reiterate, in brief:

Went to watch New Moon. It was terrible. It wasn't like I was expecting a whole lot, but it was truly, truly bad. We watched it drunk. I can't actually imagine sitting through it sober.

Hung out at my apartment and discussed the relative merits of various fandoms, pairings and politics. fadingembers introduced us to Middleman which, unlike New Moon, was far, far better than it had any right to be. It took me a while, but I finally figured out what it was about the main character that was striking such a familiar chord:

The Middleman is Benton Fraser of Due South if Fraser were slightly less Canadian and spent a good chunk of his time battling aliens. They are cosmic twins, yo. It's creepy.

Also, I learned of a good place *not* to go for Sunday morning breakfast. This was a disappointment - more so for the folks with me, I suspect, since we were pretty hungry by that point - so we ate far more Chinese food than we should have and watched a couple of Dresden Files episodes. Which is not the worse way to end a weekend.
