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.

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.

An alternate ending to Dark Reunion where Tyler attacks Matt after Bonnie leaves the boarding house. Matt blinked again, then turned his head. The bright light receded until it was just the sun in the corner of his vision. He had to squint to make out Elena's face. She was leaning against a tree, sipping from a delicate china cup, and he was sitting beside her. The bright springtime sky matched the color of her eyes perfectly. It was the kind of day that seemed to be made just for her.

I love this, full of the right amount of horror and its feature my favorite character, Matt.


Favorite film I watch this year Apocalypse Now Redux and The Godfather. I just recently seen both of these film and I enjoy the hell of them. (Both are long ass movies and watch them all the way through, so good these two and I'm obviously intrigue by them. Totally not the type of films I actually watch regularly.) Ironically, both have Robert Duvall (I'm kind of in love with him right now) in them. I’m now able to talk about them now but not in this journal, it will bore the public. My sister already gave me a strange look for watching these movies so I won't gush but if you haven’t seen these two go do it, they are great entertainment in my opinion.

Also today is cold as hell and hot chocolate is def. needed.

"Erik has succeeded in taking over the world, but mutant utopia has yet to materialize. Charles is his reluctant companion." WIP, last updated: 2011-10-31.

So good, everyone should drop what their doing to read this. There is so much richness in this world and the push and pull of Erik and Charles is done brilliantly, that I seriously have no idea what kind of ending can leave a satisfying conclusion. I can't help be in Charles’s school pitying Erik to anger.

This fic is full of my favorite kind of BRILLIANCE, I love the subtle characterization of Charles, brave, foolish and so many things that you rooting for him. I love how dark this story is and with right mixture of horror and resilience needed to balance things in.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

hooker au. When Erik had first heard of this place, it had sounded like a myth: a haven for mutants, with orgies and pillow fights in every room. The myth doesn't mention the hefty price tag attached to those fantasies, but Erik had headed straight there nonetheless. His first appointment had been with a woman he hardly remembers now; he does remember Charles, who had met him at the doorway with a gentle smile and firm handshake. "You must be Erik," he had said. "We've been expecting you." He'd placed a hand on Erik's upper arm and led him into a lavishly furnished hallway where attractive men and women lounged and talked together. That had been the first day. That had been the moment he had started to fall in love.

A chance encounter with Lieutenant Jim Kirk - who's changed since they first met five years before, and not for the better - forces Leonard to face reality about his own situation while trying to keep Jim from heading down the same path. So good, I read this one really quick, and was sad that there wasn't anymore to read, lovely AU.

At prestigious Lennox Academy, every girl has her role, something which is especially true for a group of four loosely connected girls: there's Sweet Pea and Rocket, step-sisters and co-captains of the intramural soccer team who couldn't be any less alike; Blondie, the notorious bad girl with a reputation that precedes her; and Amber, the popular junior class president. However, the girls' neatly defined lives are thrown into chaos by the arrival of the new transfer student Babydoll and some startling revelations about themselves and each other. This was lovely, full of emotions and was so dreamy and hopeful, made me happy to read it even when drama was happening. Love that it was also set in period.

Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca's trust, without blowing his cover.

This is exactly why I will do anything to read countless crossovers between White Collar and Chuck. Chuck and Neal getting it on now that hot. I will like some more, plz. (2,000 words)

Dresden Files: Strange Devices by [archiveofourown.org profile] shiplizard - Harry/Bob the Skull, Explicit. There are strange circles popping up on the street; Harry's lab assistant is in trouble; Molly Carpenter is up to something; the world is about to end and it's going to start in Chicago.

Must be a Tuesday. [Contains spoilers through White Night.] I recommending this fic because it is the only one I read that has this pairing; not a perfect fic but it satisfy the craving for now. (57,070 words)

Doctor Who: *One in a Million by [personal profile] w_coffeespoons - Amy Pond/Rory Williams, NR. They’d talked about it before--okay, so maybe talked wasn’t the right word because Rory was pretty sure that foreplay and dirty talk didn’t count as a discussion. Amy and Rory are so perfect in this. (1,125 words)

Futurama: *The Future is Now by [personal profile] bring_me_sugar - Fry/Leela, NR. The future had a lot of neat things. Fry is so in character in this one, perfect. (650 words)

Gossip Girl: *Everybody's Gone At Last by [personal profile] stainofmylove - Blair/Dan, NR. It’s not frantic. It’s never going to be. (1,593 words)

Harry Potter: *Is This The Moment? by [livejournal.com profile] monimala - Ron/Hermione, PG-13. Set a few days after Deathly Hallows (book or movie). "Are you mental?" she asks, sounding so much like *him* that Ron almost wonders if she's taken Polyjuice. Except that would be weird, wouldn't it? Drinking bits of him up before they… "After all this time, you want to go *slow*, Ronald Weasley?" Perfect Ron's voice. (600 words)

Sherlock (BBC): *What have we got to prove by [personal profile] psychedelicammo - John Watson/DI Lestrade, adult. Cracking a case is hard when you're Sherlock Holmes. Afterwards he crashes, hard. John's usually left to pick up the pieces, makes sure he's just sleeping for 24 hours a day, not deceased, things like that. Nice quickie. (1,138 words)

*Sirens to the Wounded by [personal profile] d_generate_girl - Lestrade/Sherlock/John, NR. John tastes of takeaway and Sherlock - god, what they must have been doing the past couple hours, their clothes are a wreck - and as Greg goes to pull him closer, Sherlock's hands are on his arms. Smokin' hot. (1,412 words)

Spider-Man: *Better The Devil You Know Than The One You Don't by [livejournal.com profile] fuzzy_carpet - Peter Parker/Harry Osborn, NR. It's well-past midnight when Harry shows up at Peter's door, grinning ear-to-ear in a way that could only mean he was up to something, what with a bag of Chinese take-out in one hand and a six-pack of Tsing Tao dangling from the other. Harry and Peter they break my heart always, perfect capture of their angst. (1,357 words)

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...
