Rating: General
Length: 52,413 words
Categories: Alternate Universe - Gender Changes, Action/Adventure

Summary: Shortly before her death, Padmé Amidala gives birth to two daughters. The eldest, Lucy, grows up in quiet obscurity on Tatooine -- until the Empire comes to call.

Notes: I always wanted an Always-a-girl!Luke AU since I entered fandom and I'm glad this baby exist. I devour this quickly and it was lot of fun seeing the author making creative deviations from the film version because of the changes in Luke gender.

Guys the Lucy and Leia kiss is still sweet and hilarious as the film version and I will always ship Luke and Leia until the day I die.

Cold air has final blow through my corner of the world. I have an ulcer in my mouth; I suck at dental care apparently. I think I’m getting better at typing on my laptop I feel accomplished. The new kindle looks good; Amazon new website annoys me though.

Finally read Watchmen (check out form the library), I actually enjoyed even though there is parts that I despise. The forward and backwards in time narrative of the Dr. Manhattan with hurts my head. I think I favor and enjoy the film more for the story and the stunning visual. I like the graphic novel for making me think more on some subject matter I'm interested.

Here are more of my October recs. Hover over the link to get any warning(s).

.: Avengers :.
Tomorrow Belongs To Me | [livejournal.com profile] valtyr [Steve/Tony, Jane/Thor, Explicit, 87,241 words]
Steve wakes up in the 21st Century. He doesn't think much of it, and it's dubious about him. He meets a Norse God, joins a superhero team, and feels terribly awkward about the whole monument at Arlington he's rendered obsolete by not being dead. Meanwhile, Tony is trying to make his mark on history by being the man who finally drove Nick Fury over the edge.

What a fun ride many great things to enjoy about this story but I love it because it about Steve, I just want to hug him and keep him forever.

Magnetic (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] boombangbing [Pepper/Tony, Pepper/Steve, Pepper/Steve/Tony, Clint/Natasha, PG-13, 28,537 words]
Tony and Pepper are in a committed relationship, everyone knows that. Tony still flirts relentlessly with Steve, though, and Steve doesn't know what to make of it. Then he starts having weird feelings about Pepper too, and he really, really doesn't know what to make of that.

Pepper POV is full of brilliance, my favorite fic featuring her.

Honey, I Can See The Stars (or here, or here) | [personal profile] twentysomething [Steve/Tony, NR, 11,701 words]
"The most he'd ever cared about anything remotely related was his uniform, which, beyond the stylistic, was pretty necessary. But now his suit comes from a lab far more advanced than the basement of a Brooklyn antique shop, and the only decision he really gets to make is if his pants are too tight. (They were, but he doesn't really think they changed them. He doesn't know why, but he thinks that might have been on purpose.) That being said, he doesn't know what he's done to deserve the double take Tony gives him as he walks in the room."

Sweet, Tony having a crush on Steve and wooing him, great fic to read if you want some fluff.

.: Dresden Files :.
Crosswind | [personal profile] medie [Dresden/Marcone, PG-13, 50,813 words]
Boy meets girl, girl falls in love with boy, girl is secretly a wizard, girl kills mentor and faces White Council, has boy's baby. Not exactly the stuff of fairytales, but with Harriet Blackstone Copperfield Dresden so few things ever are. Even with the fairy godmother and company in tow.

Harry born as a woman and the author wrote her brilliantly too. Go read it if you always wanted genderswap AU of the Dresden Files.

.: Final Fantasy VII :.
Against Regulations (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] chibirisuchan [Zack/Sephiroth, R (Explicit), 11,625 words]
There had been quite an argument about it later, behind closed doors -- nearly as impressive as the one over his uniform, in fact. The compromise reached was that Sephiroth would politely hold whatever they handed him until he was off the stage, and then he would give it to Zack for safekeeping afterwards -- because it was bad publicity for Shinra's most honored general to treat his ribbons as though they were frivolous and demeaning trash, or for someone else to fish them out of the wastebaskets in which he'd deposited their wreckage.

I love that this fic explore Sephiroth and Zack, their friendship and the complications. This fic is great and I wish more people will write more about their friendship and how does it work.

.: Sherlock (BBC) :.
A Ship In Harbor (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] impishtubist [Gen (Ensemble), PG, 5,200 words]
Five times Lestrade was there for someone, and one time someone was there for him.

I love everything Imp writes, seriously canon all the way for me.

.: Star Wars :.
Need to Know (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] hikarific [Luke/Han/Leia, PG, 1,312 words]
There are some things Luke and Han will always wonder about, but when it comes down to it, do they really need to know?

Great ficlet featuring my beloved OT3 that no one in fandom writes but I glad this exist.

.: Supernatural :.
Close to Broken (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] shadowrose81 [Dean/Castiel, Castiel/Meg, NC-17, 34,000 words]
It is 1932. Castiel, the adopted son, serves as the Sant’Angelo crime family’s hitman, a ruthless soldier who kills indiscriminately without questions. It is only when Castiel is contracted to kill Dean Winchester, his childhood obsession, that his world is torn asunder. Suddenly, in the face of the man he once loved, Castiel begins to doubt himself and nothing can prepare him for how quickly everything seems to fall apart.

I love the whole cinematic quality to this fic, totally feels like you watching a gangster film in my opinion.

The Sharp Edge of Earth (or here, or here) | [personal profile] dotfic [Gen with Dean/Castiel UST, R, 29,000 words]
Having sold his soul to save Sam's life, Dean finds himself in Hell at the mercy of the demon Alastair, who is intent on breaking him. But all that Dean was and is, everyone who's had an impact on him, are still a part of Dean, and he won't break easily. As Dean takes refuge in his own mind to escape the torture, angels gather, ordered to undertake an unusual mission: rescue The Righteous Man from Hell. Castiel knows an invasion of Hell will be difficult, but he has no idea how much this mission will demand of him, how wrong the best-laid plans can go – and how much everything is about to change irrevocably. Meanwhile, Dean's defenses and his hope start to fail. He thinks no one is ever coming to save him.

He's wrong.

.: The Vampire Diaries :.
The Past is Prologue (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08 [Miranda/Grayson, John/Isobel, John/Jenna, Grayson/Liz, Carol/Richard, Jenna/Logan, Jenna/Mason, Miranda/Richard, Isobel/Damon, Isobel/Alaric, NC-17, 70,548 words]
Everyone seems to forget they were young once too. Find out how Grayson found out about vampires, how Miranda ended up Mrs. Gilbert, how Richard became Mayor of Mystic Falls, what really happened between John and Isobel, how Liz became Sheriff, why Jenna only has "dirty shame," and how Isobel Flemming became a vampire.

Lit_chick08 I want to live in her brain, all the details she set up in her back-story to match canon were all wonderful and emotional. Several parts of the story made me tear up leaving an emotional ache. Everyone gets a moment to shine in this story but I love Jenna and Liz parts the most. Go read it and leave feedback for this author

A fronte praecipitium a tergo lupi (A precipice in front, wolves behind) (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] swirlsofblue [Stefan/Klaus, NC-17, 19,755 words]
This is an AU story show-casing Stefan and Klaus’s relationship through the last ninety-four years; exploring its dysfunction, and the obstacles and issues they face. It begins in 1917, with them alternately challenging and accepting each other; while on a wildly careening path of violence and destruction. As the tumultuousness of their personalities ebb and flow, their relationship does with it, and there are transformations and acceptance encompassing many shades of grey. Running parallel to this is Katherine’s present day story, wherein she is held captive and tortured by Klaus.

I'm too emotional right now and hoping that my period will come soon. Mood swings are no fun and especially if they get you in a fight with your sister. At least I wasn't violent this time.

I don't know what to do with myself I'm all edgy. I didn't sleep at all Wednesday, I rearranged my bedroom, wrote a entry of Star Wars recs, which is longer post than I will actually write, clean my hair and buff my nails. (I'm undecided on painting it right now.) I want to go out, I'm getting cabin fever but I don't really want to go outside. Or really, I should go get some sleep and set up my alarm to wake up tomorrow on time.

I hope that I get to see my friends this Friday. Interact with somebody, cause my sister is in her I don't want to be bother with your conversation moods. I think the internet has taken her brain.

I'm supposed to do my mom resume but I'm having trouble concentrating on it. Right now, this is my life.


May 22nd the Spike channel held a Star Wars marathon. I was on my laptop, when I flipping the channels and the movies took my attention away from the internet for a while. I still enjoy the original Star Wars trilogy and I want the DVDs so I can watch it right now. I still have an epic crush on Luke Skywalker and I see Leia in a new light. I really dig her character and I finally understand Han/Leia. I see the chemistry now; the unresolved sexual tension was thick. (It only took me a few years but at least I got it.)

Star Wars is not the greatest movies in the world or the best piece of science fiction but it has a big place in my heart now. I think I'm a bit too late to join this fandom, even if I try I don't know if I'm able to find my niche.


My brain is reevaluating my thoughts on religion; getting back to organized life is tough. I need order and purpose back in my life.

Janelle Monáe's new album Archandroid is out now.

Random: I think I'm getting better at typing and spotting my common grammar mistakes, not all the time but I'm learning as I continue to blog.

I can't wait for the Update Page Redesign. Dreamwidth seems to get cooler everyday I get on. I can't wait to get pay to turn this account to a paid account, so I can get to add more Star Wars icons. (Most will be the Skywalkers and Leia. :).)

The Shadows Suit Me by Luke1 - Luke/Leia, Han/Leia, Mature. AU. Events take unfortunate turns, and we are left with a Luke with no light left in him living in the underworld of Coruscant. But love, and the past, won't leave him be....

I think I have to warn first that in no way is this fic perfect, it has typos and other issues common to new writers but I was still able to read the whole fic, enjoy it and I want to recommend it. What I like about it is that fact that it in first person, Luke is our narrator and unreliable to boot cause he is a drug addict. The author totally convince me this was Luke Skywalker and not once the author lost the ability to string my emotion along for Luke and his interactions with Leia, Han, and the kids. It felt real, like Luke can become this person. The author writing made be immature but this the author beginning work.
excerpt )

Disconnections by Caryn B - Han/Luke, NC-17. Set several months after Return of the Jedi. Luke is keeping something from Han and it's threatening to destroy their friendship. On the eve of going their separate ways they attempt to breach the growing distance between them. It’s rare to find a Han/Luke story with both of the guys in character, and this fic delivers good characterization. Han and Luke coming together doesn’t feel force, it happens just right and Leia presence is there in the background makes it even better.
excerpt )

Electricity by Lady Ra - Han/Luke, NC-17. Total AU, although it is set in the Star Wars environment: Solo's a cop and he needs some special help to solve a crime. This AU is believable but I have to warn that this fic is self-indulgent in its clichés. Don’t read if you don’t like instant soul mates stories. Since I enjoy clichés, my only complaint is the lack of interaction between Luke & Leia, showing them being real siblings.
excerpt )

In His Father's Shoes by Morgan Dawn - Han/Leia, Han/Luke, NC-17. What would have happened to Luke if Leia had not rescued him from Darth Vader at Cloud City? If Luke had been turned to the Dark Side by the Emperor long before Han was ever rescued? Where and how would Han & Luke meet again? The story offers a dark twist on Luke's relationship to the Force and the people he loves. This fic has a wonderfully written dark!Luke, anger and bitter and Luke is not the only twisted character in this fic. Wonderful imagery and the end brought a tear in my eye.

Listen.. people be asking me all the time, "Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"

I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever's happening with us"

If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out. If we doing alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doing alright.

People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside comin' down to visit the townspeople.

We ARE Hip-Hop. Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop. So Hip-Hop is going where we going.

So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is going, ask yourself, "Where am I going? How am I doing?"

'Til you get a clear idea. So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people and the Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better, then how do people get better? Well, from my understanding people get better when they start to understand that, they are valuable...
