krickets: (HARPER'S. sullivan; everything you said)
→ Why are people not reading [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette's ellen/sam (bsg) fic, in our bedroom after the war? Cause it is ten shades of awesome. If you love Ellen Tigh and you love Samuel T. Anders -- and I know a lot of you do -- then go read, enjoy, and be complete.

→ Earlier this week I watched this amazing multi-fandom vid, Needs, by [livejournal.com profile] tearful_eye and it is so unbelievably beautiful. The editing, the motion, the visuals. Just gorgeous with a capital GUH.

→ I wrote some Harper's fic for our fic-a-thon. so what did you do those three days you were dead?, sully/shea. I have been wanting to write them for a while, and I'm not entirely sure I did them justice but there you have it. Also, and to the point, the ficathon ends on the 28th so head on over and get some writing done if you are harper's-inclined.

[livejournal.com profile] prettybutt kills me with the lovelies:

TONS more here.

→ That is all.

krickets: (BSG. what you never wanted.)
Like My Very Own Blood by [livejournal.com profile] jarrow
A BSG vid that focuses on Kara's supposed father-daughter relationship with Adama and on Adama himself. As I said in my comment to [livejournal.com profile] jarrow, watching this video was like experiencing a revelation. I'm feeling extremely effected by it and highly recommend the watch.

Don't forget to fb the vidder!

krickets: (FILM. why so mean?)
→ They're taking prompts over at the BSG PornBattle! Mostly predictable but some random prompting on my part. [Baltar/Paulla? Why does that feel so perfect?] Go prompt!

→ Dear fandom, You know what's unattractive? Gloating. I mean, why does everything have to come down to ships? Gloating? Seriously? Not cool. I need to write a non-shipper multi-shipper manifesto or something. And I so totally would... if I actually cared that much. Mine is a stress free world. (Does that count as gloating?)

→ TV Checklist. I'm currently behind on Dollhouse and Big Love. I am caught up on TSCC. And... I will never ever be behind on BSG again. *tears*

→ Holy crap! Battlestar is over! I don't think it's sunk in yet. I might be repeating that over and over all week.

→ Homeworking and audio-booking today... probably. How do I get myself into these things?

→ Quick fic!rec: Unfettered by [livejournal.com profile] sionnain, finale missing scene fic, Kara/Leoben, pg, and frakking amazing and perfect. My new canon. ;)

Insta-rec: [livejournal.com profile] bop_radar's new Baltar vid, Clint Eastwood. So awesome. I've watched it like four times already. Every Baltar fan will love the hell out of it. Damn, so good!

krickets: (ACT. kbell; scarves are cute!)
→ I love fall weather. October is the best month ever! (Pardon the unintentional rhyming.)

→ You know what is strange? When you find a piece of flare on facebook that was obviously created with an icon you posted to livejournal. (FYI: The blue "I ♥ cylons" icon.)

[livejournal.com profile] theladyscribe asked for crack crossover pairings the other day and gave a list of fandoms. The best thing I could come up with was River Tam/Boromir (Firefly and Lord of the Rings). I thought, "now that is a crazy pairing!" But, you guys? It turned out so well. It's such a beautiful little piece that I think I might actually be in love with this pairing now. She's amazing! Who would have thunk it?!?! READ IT: River/Boromir, pg-ish? (FYI: I have literally had this open in a tab on my laptop for days so that I wouldn't forget to rec this fic to you!)

→ Also, [livejournal.com profile] sol_se recced this amazing John/Ronon (SGA) fic by [livejournal.com profile] mahoni called Elements of Language, nc17. And all I can say is that holy!crap people need to write this pairing way more often. Damn.

→ Also, my pal [livejournal.com profile] sionnain wrote a really intense (yet pg13) Sam/Leoben fic for the [livejournal.com profile] bsg_slashathon called Trump. I gotta say one thing, making out is very very good and that should totally happen on the show. They're all manly and pressing each other against walls and that is just hot.

→ Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] bsg_slashathon we're halfway through posting and we have a nice list of fics but we could always have more! And those people who have written so far would love some feedback! So here's the mid-event round up post if anybody's interested in checking that out! :)

→ I just got done encoding and uploading a video for VidUKon. But don't get too excited. It's not new. They wanted to use my Hard Core Logo video and I'm extremely flattered. Yay! I swear one of these days I will vid again!

...more later. Probably. :)

krickets: (BSG. leoben/anders; cylon slash)
First up, Jen, [livejournal.com profile] purestvixen, wrote me the most amazing Callum Keith Rennie/Michael Trucco RPF ficlet. I requested Leoben/Sam but she must have got it turned around in her head. I gotta say, I am not displeased. It's ten kinds of hot, definitely R-rated. Two words. Hips. Teeth. Mkay? Go read.

She also wrote [livejournal.com profile] dayln03 some awesome Sam/Leoben with mentions of Kara. (Spoilers for the last ep.) Something about cold air and warm bodies... yeah. I want a sequel.

And while we're on that pairing, [livejournal.com profile] lizardbeth_j wrote a really beautiful Sam/Leoben fic called Hiding Myself in Your Eyes that plays on the idea that they may have shared a past back on Caprica.

I've come to the conclusion that Sam/Leoben and Trucco/Callum are my favorite new slash pairings. I am so happy they got some scenes together this season. Big yays for that and even bigger yays for BSG slash. *sigh* It's the little things that make me happy people!

Finally, I gotta say, [livejournal.com profile] lyssie's Chasing Tyrol is such an incredible read. The characters are spot on, especially Athena and the eights. I like that it's light and a bit comedic, but still very real to these (usually bleak) characters. The story itself for me, is kind of a hopeful thing, watching this group of people kind of become a family again? Man, I needed to see that.

krickets: (bsg | bsg > everything)
→ First, one of my flisters [livejournal.com profile] airings made a few gorgeous Baltar collages, here. It is what is described as an attempt to decipher the madness of the mind of Gaius Baltar. It's amazing and beautiful. It reminds me of a lot of the work that people do in the Stargate: Atlantis fandom which is always so creative and thorough and professional looking that you just have to sit back and stare in awe.

→ Second, I was bad and I went and watched the streaming episode over at scifi.com and holy frakking shit you guys! This is and remains the best show in the history of bloody history! do not be fooled by imitations!; massive spoilers, incl. screenshots, for 4.10 )

→ Third, a year? A year!??!!

→ Fourth, there is going to be some damn good fic over hiatus and I demand some more m/m slash dammit! (Hopefully we'll be running some fun stuff over at the [livejournal.com profile] bsg_slashathon during the hiatus sometime, so don't fret!)

001. when you're dead by [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette
lost, jack/sawyer/claire, r, 1500ish
But of an insta-rec as she just posted it today, but, so. damn. good. It's this kind of desolate and needy and lonely, but at the same time beautiful, thing. Anytime anybody writes this pairing my instant reaction is "Yay, Jawyercita!" But this is honestly one of the best I have read. She has a way with these three that seems to get better every time she writes them. Her characterization is fantastic, especially Claire. And Sawyer's voice is spot on. Just... lovely.

002. thought that was a good solution by [livejournal.com profile] astra2104
lost, jack/sawyer, pg-ish?, drabble
A beautiful heartwrenching little drabble with reflections on the season 4 finale. It made me miss reading these two. Oh gosh, boys. This felt old school somehow, and it broke my heart.

003 force by [livejournal.com profile] kylielee1000
sga, ronon/sheppard, nc17
This is pretty much the first fic I've read in this fandom since I've started watching the show. I kind of ship these two and I totally blame [livejournal.com profile] sol_se. (Not that I don't see myself reading buckets of McShep in the future.) I've just been staying away from fic for fear of being spoiled. I saw this was set in season 2 and I jumped to read it! And I was not disappointed let me tell you. She really truly has the dynamics between those two at this point down so well. Every word felt authentic. Plus it's super hot! More people need to write this pairing! I could hardly find any fic about them!

004. shift by [livejournal.com profile] kitten_of_rain
bsg, sam/leoben, pg, 300
Okay, I'm not going to lie, Sam/Leoben is my new favorite bsg slash pairing and this came right after Faith. It's a kind of missing/expanded scene-ish and super intense and hot (despite being only pg, I know!) Just... yum. Tons of deliciously thick tension in this one.

005. only by night by [livejournal.com profile] raineficmusings
bsg, kara/leoben, r
Set in New Caprica, this is a delicious kind of reverse-torture idea dealing with Kara's imprisonment by Leoben. It's sparse and intensely dark and really believable.

006. the overflow of the kitchen sink by [livejournal.com profile] falseeeyelashes
bsg, kara/lee, kara/anders, anders/six, anders/tory, helo/sharon, helo/kara, r, 4200
She strikes again. I think she wrote this when I wasn't looking because it took me forever to find this. I was so excited when I saw she'd written bsg you have no idea! If you've never read one of her fics before, you definitely should. Her style is sparse and disjointed but in a really incredible, beautiful way. She always somehow finds a way to get to the heart of each of the characters in so few words, this is no exception.

don't forget to feed the authors!




PS! Go over and join [livejournal.com profile] lost_recs! Take a look around, maybe post something. I will give you a cookie! (Or you know, imagine that I'm giving you a cookie.)

krickets: (stock | you are completely remarkable)
I've got a few recs here today.

First. There are some things for the few of you on my flist who are starting out in vidding. I know there are several of you who are wanting to vid or who are just starting out. [livejournal.com profile] sol_se posted some useful links for the new vidders on her flist today and I thought I'd pass along the word to mine.

She mentioned [livejournal.com profile] viddingnewbies, a community for those starting out. And as always [livejournal.com profile] vidding is a great place to check out. Their memories are well organized and usually recently kept up so it's a great place to look for help. And [livejournal.com profile] sol_se also has been kind enough to compile a fantastic list of all the vidding communities she could find! So that's an awesome entry to stick in your memories for future reference.

One of the most interesting/informative posts I've found on LJ about vidding is here, called Ten Things I Know about video editing, started by [livejournal.com profile] lim, and many wonderful vidders have tossed their ten things into the mix over there. Well worth checking out!

And finally:
fic recs

pages out of print, a battlestar galactica fic by [livejournal.com profile] lyssie
tory/leoben, r, 1300
"Tory knows she's supposed to hate him. And she does. She whispers her hatred against his skin every time they meet."
This fic really just blew me away. The way she interwove her storyline here with the canon New Caprica storyline is amazing and entirely plausable. It's just beautiful and in a way heartbreaking. One of the best fics I've read in a while and such an unusual pairing.

blue & red, a lost fic by [livejournal.com profile] devdev1
claire/sawyer, claire/desmond, r, 1012
"Once upon a time, her baby blue boy quieted upon hearing Sawyer’s voice. Once upon a time, she might have too."
This is really kind of hard to read, but worth it, in my opinion. It's so very dark, and for me to say that, you know it must be true because I lean towards darker things. But it's also very beautiful. Not for the faint of heart. Highly recommended!

heaven forbid you end up alone, a lost fic by [livejournal.com profile] slybrunette
jack/alex, r, 1180
"She was looking for someone just as screwed up as she is. She knocked on the right door for that too."
Been holding onto this one for a while actually. She's done a very nice job with this, one of my fav pairings. It's a kind of quiet fic and has a nice subtlety to it. Broken people can be so beautiful.

Don't forget to feedback the authors! ;)

[livejournal.com profile] purestvixen is hosting a Battlestar Galactica Friending Meme if anybody's interested. She just got into the show, courtesy moi, so she figured she'd host one. Check it out!

[livejournal.com profile] dayln03 wrote me this awesome missing scene fic from this past week's episode. Yes, it's Kara/Leoben. Yes, go read it!

→ Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] purestvixen she also wrote her very first BSG fic. It's gen, Sam, New Caprica. It's short but it's a nice little foray into fandom if you ask me. Oh, Sammy.

→ Finished season 1 of Veronica Mars. Random thoughts... )
