topaz119: (it's the great pumpkin)
I am having an awesome time with the autumn ship meme--do come play with me!

Give me a pairing and I'll tell you who:
- Chooses the pumpkin
- Carves the pumpkin
- Gets scared and clings to the other in a haunted house
- Matching costume ideas
- Makes a cozy blanket fort to cuddle in
- Steals the others candy
- Accidentally gets lost in a corn maze
- Tells spooky stories to scare the other
- Collects cool looking leaves

Current and previous fandoms welcome, crossovers are cool, characters from any books or TV shows you've seen me mention are good, and I can probably fake this for most fandoms except TW, bandom, and 99% of the anime fandoms.

The original posts are here on DW and here on LJ, but it never fails that my friending isn't in sync and the LJ is locked down, so I'm putting everything here so I can link to this post on DW.

So far I've got:

Walsh/Beaumont (The Unusuals) )

Clint/Darcy (MCU) )

Kate/Clint (and Kate & Clint) (Marvel 616) )

Sherlock & John (Sherlock) )

Clint/Coulson (MCU) )

okay, time to clean out the bookmarks -- non-Avengers-related favorites first. 10 recs in 10 fandoms, slash/het/gen

At Home With Lady Damerel, by [ profile] brutti_ma_buoini, Venetia (Georgette Heyer), Venetia/Damerel,~3100 words, Teen === Venetia & Damerel are (initial meet-not-so-cute aside) my favorite of Heyer's couples. I love that they're very clear-sighted about themselves and each other, but they still become friends. That lays the path for their romance, which is one of my most favorite tropes. This picks up after their marriage and is really just perfect.

dwarves are very upsetting, by [ profile] empressearwig, Bet Me / Into the Woods, Min/Calvin, ~3600 words, Teen === Min's dream has a familiar, Broadway bent to it.

Unwritten Rules, by [ profile] lyra_wing, Almost Human, Dorian/Kennex, ~4700 words, Mature === John and Dorian and feeeeeeeelings. All totally in character, ♥

Forty-Two, by [ profile] knitmeapony, The Unusuals / Warehouse 13, gen, ~1500 words === Delahoy calls in a consult wrt Banks & his issues about 42.

measure a year, by [ profile] noplacespecial, The Unusuals, Walsh/Shraeger, ~4800 words, Teen === Walsh & Shraeger dancing around each other, chronicled through a year of birthdays (and one that didn't quite make it.)

One Night Stands and Vanilla Cupcakes, by [ profile] redtoes, Arrow, Feliciy/Oliver, ~16,000 words, Explicit === Oliver wakes up and smells the coffee when presented with evidence of Felicity actually having a life outside of Team Arrow. Dig thinks it's about damn time.

Five Times Oliver Held Felicity (And The One Time She Held Him), by [ profile] ageless_aislynn, Arrow, Feliciy/Oliver, ~3400 words, Teen === Quick snapshots that actually manage to feel pretty true to the show's atmosphere and satisfy my Olicity cravings at the same time. This happens far less often than you might think.

always room in life for this, by [ profile] Siria, Bourne Legacy, Marta/Aaron, ~936 words, Teen === Marta and Aaron find a place.

Reconstruction Site, by [ profile] disco_vendetta, Pacific Rim, Raleigh/Mako, ~8300 words, Teen === Raleigh and Mako (and Herc and Newt and Hermann) adjust to life after the Rift. Generally, movies that are all about giant robots punching giant monsters don't lend themselves to fluffy domesticity like this one does, but that's why we love it so much.

Come Once Again and Love Me, by [ profile] janekrahe, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Hansel/Gretel, ~7300 words, Mature === Hansel tentatively lets himself think about Gretel and who she really is to him.
topaz119: (HeartsFromTheBeach)
My dad is watching UFC, welcome to the holiday, sigh. Have some yuletide goodness?

second squad, this is delahoy, be advised by [ profile] Anonymous, The Unusuals, gen, Delahoy, 1669 words, Teen === Second Squad rallies around Delahoy, everyone in perfect character. Note the warnings, but if the show had gone this way, this is exactly how it would have played out.

A cold, beautiful truth by [ profile] Anonymous, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, gen, team, 1578 words, Teen === Undercover snark mixed nicely with tension, gunfire and feels. Pretty much exactly what sucked me into this fandom to begin with.

On The Same Page by [ profile] Anonymous, The Mummy, Evy Carnahan/Rick O'Connell, 3040 words, Teen === Evy isn't getting cold feet about her engagement, not exactly. She's just concerned that Rick doesn't understand how boring a librarian's life generally is. Rick knows better. ♥ ♥ ♥

And the Waves Clasp One Another by [ profile] Anonymous, Persuasion (Jane Austen), Admiral Croft/Sophia Croft, 2065 words === Lovely story of Sophia joining her new husband aboard his ship.

Lost & Found by [ profile] Anonymous, Bourne Legacy, Aaron Cross/Marta Shearing, 3678 words, Teen === I really love this take of Marta and Aaron allowing themselves to find a new life, and I really, really love where they ultimately end up.

queen and consequence by [ profile] Anonymous, Princess Diaries, Nicholas Devereaux/Mia Thermopolis, 1778 words, G === Mia and Nicholas, navigating the waters of a modern romance in the public eye. A thousand bonus points for the cameo from Joe and the Queen.

Furlough by [ profile] Anonymous, Arrow, gen, John Diggle & Oliver Queen & Felicity Smoak,, 3964 words, Teen === Everybody deserves a night off and Felicity has the frequent flyer miles to take care of it. Bonus points for Dig having many hidden domestic talents.

we are not your island (you are not our distant shore) by [ profile] Anonymous, Arrow>, John Diggle/Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak, 2751 words, Teen === In which Oliver is a little slow on the uptake, but he gets there in the end.

Always and Forever by [ profile] Anonymous, Pern, Sean Connell/Sorka Hanrahan, 1078 words, G === Sean and Sorka through the years. Actual drabbles, be still my heart.

In the second house on the left by [ profile] Anonymous, The Scarlet Pimpernel, gen, 1162 words, G === Chauvelin does not give up easily; the Pimpernel accepts the challenge.

Peppermint by [ profile] Anonymous, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Yukon Cornelius/Hermey, 1454 words, G === Y'all! This is so adorable and sweet and, just, full of love and caring. I swear it will not scar your childhood.

Repercussions by [ profile] Anonymous, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, gen, 5025 words, Mature === Post-canon, Hansel deals (not so well) with missing Mina while Gretel has more important things on her mind.

From perusing the flist/circle, I gather that it is once again time for the Top Ten On AO3 meme, with optional kudo listing.

Top 10 by hits )

Top 10 by kudos )

So, drawing conclusions... I don't know? (You're shocked, I'm sure.) There's a mix of het, slash, and gen-ish romance in there, as well as a mix of fandoms. There are a couple of "big" pairings (McDanno, J2, Wincest) but the rest are a pretty varied set, so I'm guessing people are good with my love of picking out an odd couple and going for it (she says as she gets back to the Bruce/Clint that's languishing in g-docs...)
topaz119: (books!)
many, many holiday exchange stories made me happy this year. and then I lost the post--twice!--so I am tossing this first batch out there and retiring to the kitchen to de-stress with (more) baking.

9 stories in The Mummy, Sharpe, The Montmaray Journals, The Unusuals, MI4, and Avengers RPF fandoms )
topaz119: (it's the great pumpkin)
...or close enough to have cleared out my inbox to call it good and give it a month or so to fill back up (and to give me a chance to fb the SPN/J2 BB writers.) I knew I had a lot, but I didn't really think I'd let it get quite this bad!

fic and vids from the Avengers, The Mummy, Bourne Legacy, The Unusuals, The Losers, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and Hawaii Five-0 )

Title: hard to dance with a devil on your back
Fandom: The Unusuals
Pairing: Allison Beaumont/Jason Walsh
Rating: Explicit
Length: ~6000
Notes/Warnings: Takes place just before and during the pilot episode so spoilers for that. Also, characters behave in ways that may allude to events in later episodes (not to mention the pairing itself.) This is for the finally square on my [community profile] cottoncandy_bingo card.

Summary: "I don't do this." Allison knew how to cut guys off when she didn't care--she could take them out at the knees without a second thought--but that wasn't how she wanted this to go.

"I don't either," Walsh said.

topaz119: (hearts)
AO3's 502 issue is playing havoc with me trying to get this post done, so I'm conceding for now and putting these out there and will cross my fingers that I can get the rest of them coded up and posted later this week. I have no idea

Lies to Buy Myself Some Time, by [ profile] k8andrewz, The Unusuals, Jason Walsh/Casey Shraeger, Explicit, ~18,000 words === This totally captures the off-beat charm of the show and spins out in a dead-on perfect Walsh voice exactly how he ends up having a thing for his partner. (Or you can read here on lj.)

The American Guest, by [ profile] embroiderama, White Collar/Downton Abbey (AU? Fusion?), Thomas/Neal, NC-17, ~2000 words === An American comes to stay at Downton. To no one's surprise, Thomas arranges to take care of him, but all is not as it might seem on the surface. You know, I can hate on T with the best of them, but I am also incredibly sad for him sometimes, so I'm kind of happy (?) he gets a little bit more than he expects here. And Neal is impeccably Neal here, so no, nothing is what it might seem.

What You Don't Know, by [ profile] chemm80, Top Gun, Ice/Maverick, NC-17, ~7700 words === Ice misjudges things and Maverick finds himself in the unlikely position of rescuer (which he actually handles fairly well; yay, I did not feel the need to whack him upside the head with a 2x4 which is often my default reaction to canon-Maverick, yes I have issues, we all knew that already), but then realizes that once you see something, it's kind of hard to unsee it, for good or, well, there is no bad here, IMO. :D

The Leadership Breakfast, by [personal profile] musesfool, Captain America, Steve/Bucky, Teen, ~4000 words === Future fic drawing on comics canon, so… spoilers for that? Or for possible directions of future movies? Maybe? Regardless, Bucky is uncertain of his place in this new world, but matters are resolved most satisfactorily over breakfast. Because bacon is never a bad thing, y/y?

RED, by [ profile] waldorph, Avengers, Natasha/Maria Hill, Explicit, ~9800 words === It's Natasha's backstory, so, seriously, check the warnings, because her life is not pretty. She doesn't just survive it, though: she transcends it. I especially love the relationships built between everyone. (Spoilers for, uh, lots of stuff.)

To Be Modified As Necessary, by [ profile] ignipes, Avengers, gen-ish (a little Clint/Natasha, Steve/Bucky, Bucky/Natasha), Teen, ~6000 words === If you're going to have all these superheroes living in the same house, you have to have some rules up front. They're fairly amusing in and of themselves, but what's better is that behind every rule is another part of the story of how these "sad, lost creatures" became a family. My heart, y'all. (Spoilers for the movie.)

The Lovely Couple, by [ profile] celli, Avengers, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Teen, ~3000 words === Every pairing needs a good undercover-married fic, right? Right.

Living Dangerously, by [ profile] penknife, Avengers, Bruce/Tony(/Pepper), R, ~1600 words === I'm all for Bruce getting a little love and attention and even moreso when Pepper is not slighted. And a sequel! Putting Out Fires (With Gasoline), which is just as delightful, but is more Bruce/Pepper(/Tony).

Two Sleepy People, by [personal profile] icepixie, The Thin Man, Nick/Nora, Teen, vid === Y'all! This is the most perfect thing EVER. It's adorable, it's charming, it's them. I had to haul out all my Thin Man DVDs for a glorious weekend of rewatching after this.

budapest, by cupoftea991, Avengers, Clint/Natasha, Teen, vid === It is fortunate for us all that Renner has all that lovely MI4 footage out there--it makes putting together BlackHawk secret agent vids so much easier!

compromised, by TatyanaOracle, Avengers, Clint/Natasha, Teen, vid === While it could be argued that the movie was Very Clear on Natasha's reaction to the news, I don't think it hurts to have another take on the subject. (Spoilers for the movie.)

as long as it lasts, by VilyaXxX0llwyna, Avengers, Clint/Natasha, Teen, vid === Yes, BlackHawk vid #3. Just so you know: I'm watching every damn one of these so you don't have to wade through the soppy ones. /selfless
