Summary: Leonard is not enthusiastic about his new roommate. Jim, on the other hand, is ecstatic. Or maybe manic, which is more than slightly disturbing to Leonard. That, along with a little PTSD, concerned friends, late-night confessions and an unusual pet put McCoy and Kirk on the road to recovery in the aftermath of Marcus and Khan.

Notes: Klmeri is good at humorous story, adding layer of seriousness that add lots to zie characterization, and I was surprised how discomforting some scenes where Kirk and McCoy deal with being roommates and the mental health of Kirk. I found that this really fit canon for the new film series a lot better than other stories I read in this fandom.

Pairing: James T. Kirk/Leonard McCoy
Rating: Explicit
Length: 22,561 words
Categories: Friendship, Academy Era

Summary: When Leonard shows up at Starfleet Academy, he wonders just how drunk he was when he met with the recruiter. He has no friends, misses his kid, and if drowning his sorrows doesn't kill him, PT will. Then he meets Jim Kirk again.

Notes: Leonard McCoy will always have my heart, doesn't matter which incarnation. I found Bones' alcoholism and his dealing with his depression shed some great light on his character. My heart aches for McCoy because I knew how McCoy was feeling dealing with how his depression made him intimidating to everyone that actively prevent you from trying to form connections. I love how Jim and Bones grow into their friendship were becoming close help relieve some of their real life pains even though there is bumps along the way.

Character/Pairing: Arthur Pendragon (Arthur/Gwen)
Rating: Teen
Length: 53,000 words
Categories: Canon Divergence, Action/Adventure, Arthur Finds Out

Summary: After defeating Cenred's forces and an army of the dead in the siege during the Tears of Uther Pendragon, Arthur has a traitor to identify, a city to rebuild, and—of course—a manservant to order around. All of which would be much easier to accomplish if Gaius would give him a straight answer about the magical staff found in the burial vaults, Merlin was not yanking Morgana into alcoves, and if Gwen would call him by his given name. When a druid insists on meeting with him, Arthur is forced to confront the fact that he cannot hide from magic.

Notes: Arthur Pendragon is one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and this is the most fun I had reading a Merlin story ever. I wish the show went this direction as this story. The backstory was done so well my eyes were tearing up at parts especially Morgause section.

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.

Pairing: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier
Rating: Mature
Length: 144,711 words
Categories: Alternate Universe - Dystopia, Post-Apocalyptic, Psychological Drama, Science, Slow Build, Unrequited Love

Summary: It's been five years since the beach, and four years since Charles was captured by the Brotherhood. Since then, he's been kept in a safe house while Erik finally achieved what Shaw failed to do.

Now that most of humanity has been eradicated, Erik's summoned Charles back to his side, promising a cure and political influence in exchange for Charles' help - but Charles knows it's only a matter of time before he asks for more.

Notes: You guys don't know how much I love reading stories about unrequited love and reading this made me happy. Charles' internal struggle to understand his feelings for Erik and planning his death makes this unrequited love story a bit more twisted than usual. I hope the ending stays unrequited though I'm sure some will complain about it. Unrequited love and dubious consent seem to be my new favorite combination to see in fiction.

I'm trying to battle the feeling of being sad and tired all the time. Tumblr is becoming a not so happy place for me. I just want to have some joy back in fandom. I decided to do a little recing challenge for myself. I will to make 25 recs of works over 50k words in various fandoms.

Fandom: X-Men: First Class
Characters/Pairings: Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Emma Frost, Jean Grey
Rating: Mature
Length: 438,189 words (WIP)
Categories: Alternate Universe - Dystopia, Dark, Post-Apocalyptic

Summary: Beauty and the Beast AU. Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time.

Notes: This is the darkest and most complex story I read in my entire fannish life, a suspenseful ride through a terrifying new world through Charles' eyes. The world building and the mysterious circumstances of Charles' captivity is what keeping me interested in reading this monster. Charles and Erik relationship so far is fascinating to see developed and by far, the most twisted relationship I ever read in fiction in my life so far.

I don't have internet at home. I hate myself and my life a whole lot right now. I don't want to talk about school ever. Worst semester so far and I don't like the change in my instructor.

I'm trying not to be so negative and hard on myself. I have been having a couple of crappy weeks of not being able to do my course work. I feel like a huge failure at school but I'm doing well at my externship. I still hate being on the phone but I'm trying to practice and write out scripts on what I should say.

My sister and I are going to AWA for this weekend. We are going to meet up with our friends and stay at their hotel room. I haven't seen my girls in over a year and I miss them so much. Tomorrow I have to work so I'm doing the two days pass if there is nothing I want to see on Friday night.

Tumblr takes up a lot of my time right now. I prob need to quit it.

I still don’t feel well and sometimes Fandom is not a nice place to lurk.

If you are on Tumblr, I will follow and you don’t have to follow back since I’m mostly a lurker.

A celebration of pilots, captains, engineers, crew members, and the spacecraft they love to fly. (And race, and crash, and fix, and play in, and fight in, and...) Everyone who ever loves Space needs to go watch this vid.

After a car accident, Louis goes on pretending that nothing ever happened. I love reading a good ghost story especially when I can feel the sense of horror of what is happening to Louis and I love the progression of the flashback to the crash.

I don't feel well. I want to stay in bed all day and do nothing. I hate being uncomfortable at school. I don't know if the staff that makes more uneasy then the students.

I hate the weather; it feels like it has been raining for weeks now.

The start of my August recs, I don't feel like making a recs post.

I have a lot of feeling right now and I don't know what to do with them.

Most embarrassing moment of last week: I had a panic attack at school on Wednesday during work study. Thank God the only witnesses were my parents but still I hate getting them. Glad my parents really do try to understand me being such an emotional mess sometimes. I didn't go to school & work on Thursday because I felt like crap.

Right now I'm in class. I really don't want to go to school in the morning right now.

To authors who don't like kudos, from a lurker by [personal profile] sidra
For people who find it difficult to communicate with words, kudos are a way to communicate through actions. This is basically me all time. Another reason for me to be a lurker in fandom is that I have a lot of anxiety when I try to write a comment for various reasons, so it takes too much of my energy and time. So kudos on AO3.org and the like button on Tumblr helps me so much.

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...
