The Hungers Games:
Addendum by [livejournal.com profile] mintenergy
Gale/Katniss, R, ~13,216 words
Post-Mockingjay. I’m just not sure; not sure of anything but maybe death, pain, survival. I don’t wave back but I do watch him motionlessly until he’s just a speck of regret in the distance.

Wonderful what-if story, the portrayal of Katniss's mental heath got to me, the first person narrative works here.

Inception:
How to Know (or here, here) by [personal profile] citrinesunset
Arthur/Cobb, Mature/R, 22,000 words
Arthur builds a relationship with Cobb, which begins as casual sex between friends and gradually becomes more. But as it does so, Arthur's lack of confidence in Cobb weighs on him.

Arthur's jaw and tongue are starting to ache, but he doesn't stop. He strains his eyes upward, trying to look at Cobb's face without removing the cock from his mouth. Cobb's eyes are closed and his lips are parted. The usual lines are gone from his forehead and around his eyes, making him look five years younger. It might just be the light.

Arthur and Cobb having a relationship that is real, complicated and their parts in this fic that hurt my heart and Arthur is just as flaw as Cobb. The kids are real kids, horrible and great at the same time and love that this story was long, I miss reading this pairing.

Sherlock (BBC):
A Promising Start (or here) by [personal profile] morganstuart
Gen, PG, 442 words
She could learn a great deal from this man: what not to do, of course, but also what to do. This takes place approximately three years prior to events in "A Study in Pink."

Sally and Lestrade first meeting, it’s wonderful and the insight into their characters is great.

Triage (or here, here, here) by [personal profile] morganstuart
Gen, PG-13, ~1,800 words
Donovan didn't want to see this, and Sherlock didn't want to be seen – especially by her – this way. This takes place between events in the first and second series of Sherlock.

Sally is my favorite and I just love it when someone writes her.

Mistaken for Strangers by [livejournal.com profile] knowmydark
Sherlock/John, Sherlock/Moriarty, M, 8,088 words
Six months ago, a bomb went off in central London and Sherlock scented blood.

This is everything I wanted in Sherlock and Moriarty story, the unrequited emotions, both in character and being horrible people, love it.

Supernatural:
A Conviction of Angels by [livejournal.com profile] affablyevil
Dean, Sam, Castiel, PG-13
"Another Radio Song" by Okkervil River. "This isn't the first planetary enema we've delivered." When Zachariah traps Sam and Dean in an alternate universe where they are not themselves, they seek help from an old friend they haven't met yet.

This video definitely tells it own story, it made me feel like this was a different show, there is so much going, that I can't help watching this vid over and over again.

So Statuesque a Silhouette (In Black Satin Evening Gowns) | [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08 [Emily/Daniel, Emily/Jack, Nolan/Tyler, undertones of Emily/Nolan, PG-13, 2,265 words]
Sometimes she's so many different people, Nolan loses sight of the girl he swore to keep safe.

My Shadow is the Only Friend That I Have | [livejournal.com profile] lit_chick08 [Emily/Daniel, Emily/Jack, hints at Emily/Nolan, PG, 1,544 words]

Alchemy (or here) | [livejournal.com profile] wanderamaranth [Dean/Castiel, past Dean/Anna, Castiel/Meg, Castiel/Anna, briefly mentioned Sam/Ruby, R, ~38,000 words]
Superhero AU. Castiel Novak's life is average until the day he wakes up with superpowers. Soon after he meets Dean Winchester, an investigative reporter with a knack for getting himself into trouble.

My favorite deancasbb right now, there so many details that I love about it, lots more ppl should read this.

Redemption | [livejournal.com profile] freckledwings [Dean/Castiel, R, 30,816 words]
An action-packed AU. Dean is an agent for a secret organization devoted to take out corrupt leaders. Castiel Novak is an agent for an organization devoted to protecting them. When Castiel is shot during one of their many collisions, Dean reacts out of instinct and saves him, immediately marking himself as a traitor. And so begins the biggest journey yet for Dean, Castiel, and Sam, where Castiel teaches Dean about the power of redemption, forgiveness, and second chances, all while trying to stay alive.

I love the world the author presents in the fic and love the beginning, with Dean and Cas pointing guns at each other.

.: Teen Wolf :.
Scottie McCall | [livejournal.com profile] bdrixhaettc [girl!Scott, PG-13]
AU, Genderbender verse. This here is the promised drawing of girl!Scott based on the promo picture where Posey is all glowering yellow-eyes, wild hair and ripped-and-bloody shirt

Fucking gorgeous.

With Thunder In My Veins and Roaring In My Heart | [livejournal.com profile] hart_and_sole [Scott/Jackson, with background Stiles/Lydia, R, 16,001 words]
Continues from Your Gift is a Millstone and You've Made Your Bed (Now Lie In It). AU. Things between Scott and Jackson start to get too heavy for Jackson's liking. Meanwhile, with hunters circling the Hale pack, Derek takes drastic measures to bring Scott back into the fold.

Interesting take on Jackson and love insight into Scott.

Stefan escapes from Klaus and returns to Mystic Falls. He is followed by the hybrid, and the town pays for his mistake. Mystic Falls is abandoned. Stefan embarks with Caroline and Tyler. On the road and off, we follow the threesome for the next decade.

Mystic Falls is a quiet town these days.

Oh my heart, I love that Matt can be the hero in the end.

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.

Superman

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...
