Length: 66,910 words words (WIP)

Summary: It started with a whisper . . . And it goes like this: Brienne wants to play hockey, Cersei wants to plot, and everyone's mother keeps getting involved. Jaime just wants to flirt with Brienne when things get boring.

Notes: I love this series is telling a story about a modern teenage girl coming of age in realistic way. Brienne deals with the complexity of friendships, her father, dealing with her relationship with Jaime, and bullying.

I like that the supporting cast are complex characters with their own motivations, and at times, they do hurt Brienne’s feeling in painful ways. I love that Brienne is learning how to live her life.

Summary: "Pride goeth before destruction". She had grown up with those words tempering her every action, but it would be many years before they began to make sense.

Notes: Pride and Prejudice is great source for adaptation and I love the writer attention to historical and language detail to make this crossover work extremely well.

I love Brienne is playing the part of Elizabeth Bennet, she is still like herself making it more believable that Hyle Hunt can trick Brienne with false sincerity and that she still doesn't know her true feelings for Jaime. Jaime as Mr. Darcy was done brilliantly and that he didn't deny his 'sins' that maybe a problem for Brienne the further we get into the story.

I love how much Arya, Sansa, and the other ladies in canon are feature in this story.

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.

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.

we could not make sense by [archiveofourown.org profile] guest_age (Blaine/Cooper, Blaine/Kurt, Explicit, 3,930 words)
Blaine is thirteen the first time he realizes that not everyone looks at their older brother the way he does. // This is my kind of incest story, there is nothing nice or pretty about this and I don’t know the source material but Blaine I feel for him here.

Inconsolation Prize by [archiveofourown.org profile] Verbyna (Blaine/Cooper, Blaine/Kurt, Mature, 1,348 words)
Blaine wasn’t an asset to Cooper, so when he left, Cooper edited Blaine from his life. The big brother role never fit him. Kissing Blaine, that was different. It was the only real connection they ever had: sex and music, hard kisses and watching movies silently, making a space for themselves where they couldn’t compete. // I prob. need more Blaine/Cooper if I’m going to jump into this fandom. I can’t believe power imbalance is my new kink.

oh, you say you love me (but you don't know) by [archiveofourown.org profile] thememoriesfire (Quinn/Finn, Mature, 11,667 words)
AU. It’s not that he didn’t know that his wife was gay. It’s that it just didn’t really matter, until they got an invite to their high school reunion and the only girl she’d ever really loved was coming back to town. // This fic is my new favorite; it gives me all kinds of feelings and if anyone has read it, please feel free to discuss it with me because it gives me all these thoughts. I can’t even begin to describe the story all I know that I should logically not agree with the situation but my heart tell me I want Finn and Quinn to stay together. I just the author totally suck me into their relationship. Everyone should go read it very thought provoking.

He’s a seasoned double-o with a penchant for deep blue aston martins and high-tech screwdrivers. She’s a former jewel thief imprisoned for a murder she says she didn’t commit. When she escapes from prison to help him track down the stolen crown jewels, they’ll find they have a lot more in common than expected. This was so much fun to read, a great mix of action, thriller intrigue, and sexual tension, yum! I'm keeping this forever with me, and it really clever mixing up the James Bond mythos with Doctor Who in the right way, imo.

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol: The Runner by [archiveofourown.org profile] x_art (Ethan Hunt/William Brandt, NR, 15,681 words)
He knew his big mouth would get him into trouble sooner or later, but sooner seemed a hell of a lot, well, sooner. My Tom Cruise crush is mildly inappropriate and this is fic is a great incentive for me to watch this movie. Jeremy Renner is not that bad to look at either.

Not Quite The Morning After by [archiveofourown.org profile] topaz (William Brandt/Ethan Hunt, Explicit, 1,385 words)
It′s fairly impressive how much exasperation Ethan can layer into his voice even when he′s spread out on Will′s bed, naked and flushed, skin still damp and humid from the shower Will had needled him into. My favorite type of porn though I think it mildly embarrassing to admit to right now but whatever I like what I like at the moment.

It's a decision that will have a number of unforeseen consequences, as she becomes far closer with the famous detective than she ever could have imagined.

It took me forever to read this fic, I first saw it when it was publish, I read a brief part of it, and quit reading because of the mild Irene hate. blah blah blah )

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.

"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.

When Capellanus wrote of love, he swore that no man could have two loves, that the new would chase away the old. If only, Arthur thought, it could ever be that simple.

Perfect display of romance, oh my heart, I how much I love these three together.

Captain America: Sorrow (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] greensilver [Steve, Ensemble, NR]
Music by The National. Don't leave my hyper heart alone.

This song is prefect for Steve, and damn this vid reinforces how much Steve lost for being frozen in ices for so long. Peggy and Bucky, I don't want Steve to forget about them and now I want to read all the 40's era Captain America fanfics.

Doctor Who: Matches to Paper Dolls (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] xandra_ptv [River Song, NR]
"Matches to Paper Dolls" by Dessa. Our book won't close River Song and the Doctor is like playing with fire, she destroyed time just to keep him alive.

This is brilliant and River Song breaks my heart, yo. I finally download some more from Dessa and I'm blown away how amazing her songs are and I lovin' it.

Great Gatsby: Lights Across the Sound | [archiveofourown.org profile] proteinscollide [Nick/Gatsby, Mature, 3,321 words]

Sherlock (BBC): Red Sky in Morning or (here) | [livejournal.com profile] impishtubist [Sherlock/Lestrade, NC-17, ~5,600 words]
It takes a madman with a bomb to make Lestrade realize just what Sherlock has become to him - and what John means to Sherlock. Porn with a bit of plot.

I love the introspection, and the sex like Sherlock and Lestrade need to reassures themselves with each other.

Vampire Diaries - LJ Smith: Craving or (here) | Elektra Pendragon [Stefan/Matt, implied Klaus/Tyler, one-sided Matt/Tyler, Mature, 28,306 words]
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.

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...
