Tumblr didn't lead me astray on this one

Welcome to Night Vale, a podcast about a terrifying town where, I think, we'd all feel worryingly at home.


Instant rec!

If you read Kim Newman's Anno Dracula (which was excellent), and even if you haven't, do, do read Moriarty --- The Hound of the D'Urbervilles. At first it's fun, then it's clever, and then you realize it's good.


Going back to comics...

If you ever wanted to see Tim taking over Lexcorp and using their resources to bring Kon back to life (and there was a time when all of us wanted to see that), then Marvel is providing a very nice cross-universe analogue with Prince of Power #1, where an angsty teenage genius mythslaying billionaire (their words, not mine) is using the vast intellectual and material resources at his disposal to accomplish the most important thing in the world: bringing back his best friend.

Needless to say, highly recommended.

Quick mostly rec

Titanium Rain: So far, it's Top Gun meets an early Ghost in the Shell, as told by Tom Clancy. Aside from the Tom Clancy and Top Gun factors, pretty cool.


A logical rec

Butterfly wings, awesome Spock Prime fic by sharpest_rose.


Holy Shit

If you haven't yet, go read Fleep. It's a short comic strip, you'll finish it in no time, and it's a fantastic self-contained story. If you like smarts in your characters and your plots, if you are up for a good punch in the gut, if you like xkcd and/or A Softer World, if you like nontrivial mysteries, if science, love, fear, and courage are your thing, then go read Fleep.

And if you have read it, do you have anything else along those lines to rec? *g*


QuickSGA rec

A Short Record of Outmoded Concepts and Theories of the Tauri'i, by pogrebin. From the title, I thought it would be comedy.

It's not.

And it's beautiful.


Quick Rec

Written for me in JBBS '08: Young, just us. It's Kon-tastic! :)


Dear Yuletide Author

I tried to send you a message, but the server 500'd on me. I'll try again when I wake up, but just in case you're checking here, the message was

Thanks, thanks, thanks, *many* thanks. This is fantastic - Watson, Mycroft, awesome backstory that makes perfect sense. I love it very much. Thanks!

In conclusion: Yay!

Everybody else, consider this my rec post: An Evening With Mycroft. Don't tell me the title alone doesn't make you want to read it.
