i can't even with some fics

When I read a fic by a new author I come across I like to look through all their fics for more reading material. This usually leads to good reads and new pairings and overall awesomeness.

Case in point. I read this:
Cryptonomican In Practical Application (In Pursuit of a Decreased Variable 'S') by cerebel (Tony/Loki)
In which Tony is a codebreaker, and Loki interrupts his perfected routine by having the gall to be a Nazi defector.

Which led to this:
You Feed Me Fables From Your Hand by cerebel (Clint/Loki)
Three years ago, the twilight of the Gods: Clint Barton watched as Asgard descended into chaos, unimaginable monsters against unimaginable power, death and destruction to a degree he never thought possible. Three years ago, he saw Thor wade into the fray and fight his way to his brother, Loki. Three years ago, he ran, fleeing with the rest of the Avengers, as the gods dissolved into memory and dust.

Today, he sees Loki again.

And then somehow finally to this:
Corruption and Creme Brulee by amanuensis1 (Clint/Loki)
Loki finds that Agent Barton is peerless. In all things. For a mortal. Which is unforgivable.

Okay, I've been reading amanuensis1's stuff for years now and her fics still make me ASLDJFHDSKAFLDK all over the place. While the first Clint/Loki fic is more along the redemption and fix-it lines (which I love love love), the second just made my brain short-circuit with its delicious mind-control, dub/non-con porny goodness. And the ending. The ending.

On another Avengers-related noted, I got my first pick for marvel_bang and the author (idk, can I mention who before claims end?) has already emailed me plot outline. It is GLORIOUS and cute and I can't wait to read the entire thing.

I need an appropriate fangirling icon.

community activities and fest pimping time!

  • marvel_bang is still looking for artists, vidders, and fanmixers. Sign up here if you're interested. Judging by the number of comments, there's close to 300 authors signed up and only 68 artists/vidders/mixers and even if we non-authors claimed 2 stories it still wouldn't be enough to cover half of the stories. So, go forth and sign up! Sign-ups close September 14.

  • serpentinelion's posted their Glompfest 2012 Masterlist which is filled with so much H/D awesome that I can't even.

  • eagle_exchange has started posting! avengers_rbb is posting! No wonder I can't make much headway in the fanart department. Between the fantastic fic, friends' wedding plans, and work, I barely have time to sleep!

    • On a random note, Coming to America was on tv over the weekend. Oh god, I love that movie so much. It's one of my favourites and it never ever gets old. :D

drive-by rec and glompfest

Everything About It Is A Long Song by pocky_slash

Erik's spent fifty years being a figurehead and he's ready to leave that behind. Luckily, so is Charles.

(aka Old Retired Dudes in Love)

THIS. This. This is what I always imagine Charles and Erik to have/be years into the future. There are challenges but it's them and they're finally together and they're trying and they're happy and still so much in love with each other. I love these two.

Also, serpentinelion's GLOMPFEST. It's that time of year again. :D Leave your prompt here! The prompt post will close April 12th so get yours in while you still can.

someone put me out of my misery

Prompt claiming is still open over at xmenreversebang! I just checked and my prompt has yet to be claimed. Please, someone claaaaiiiim iiiittt. D:

Cool things happening:

  • hd_tournament. Sort of like an H/D version of FMM or battle royale type thing (?) where authors and artists compete as groups or as individuals. Sounds interesting but I don't think I'll have the time to participate.

  • serpentinelion's Glompfest is starting soon. General information with dates are here. All I need to know is that claiming begins April 14th. I ♥ Glompfest.

  • bigbangbigbang is still looking for artists/mixers/vidders so sign up here

Apparently, it's Fassy's birthday today. :D

God, I love his face. SO MUCH.

Shameless self-pimping! I'm this month's Artist Interview person-type thing at fanartivation! Here!

Also, today is Day 1 of a 3-day module for a Project Management course I'm taking. Oh god, kill me now. The instructor looks boring as all hell.

i like gooooold

I have the ugliest sunburn which is slowly turning into the ugliest tan. :/ And right now I'm sitting at my desk peeling/rubbing/scraping at it. The thing hurt like a mofo until two days ago and blisters started popping up yesterday. I feel like Goldmember, but of course, minus the eating part. Kinda gross. O_O

Does anyone know where I can find good Criminal Minds fic? It doesn't have to be shippy or anything, just some good fics for someone new to fandom to ease into.

Oh, and:

TBBT - Sheldon :D

sweater on turtle and the neck on puff

Best song ever, y/y? I have a newfound love for Michael Bolton:

Ahahahaaha! "Captain Jack, Johnny Depp. Davy Jones, Giant Squid." Lonely's Island's Turtleneck & Chain is quite funny. There are some strange and squicky parts in the cd but overall, the songs are hilarious. Falcor vs. Atreyu - Classy Skit #1 killed my childhood, jsyk.

Today is the last day to artists/vidders/mixers to sign up for bigbangbigbang! So head on over here if you want to partake in The Big Bang Theory big bang action.

Also, serpentinelion's Glompfest begins posting tomorrow! I'm very excited for this because it's the first time I've participated in the Glompfest and I really hope my recipient likes it.
