1. So livejournal/google/adsense are banding together to make sure that even paid accounts get ads by paying people for every hit. Naturally there's wank on the announcement page.

I considered it for a second but the five years it would take for me to make $10 just isn't worth ads screwing up layout or bugging me by existing.

Which reminds me that I have to renew my paid account very, very soon.

2. Last week I banged my cheek on the corner of my desk in the dark and had a light bruise there. Today I banged my head on my desk at work and have had a killer headache ever since. People are going to get concerned about my head/eye coordination soon.

3. I am up ridiculously late but can't sleep because of my aforementioned headache plus I got into a rage about various things posted to [livejournal.com profile] ontd_political. Let's just say me having read articles about PeTA, vicious and unfettered hate crimes in Utah and Glen Beck merely existing filled me with a rage that has kept me up. Thank goodness for the pillow and blanket I keep in my bag for the ride to work.

4. I read a really good Laura Cadman/Elizabeth Weir fic set post-Torri-gives-SGA-producers-the-finger. Check it here: Hail Mary by [livejournal.com profile] bluflamingo. I haven't read fic from any fandom (other than [livejournal.com profile] heartsways' stuff before she posts it) in months and I'm quite glad I read this one. It just reminded me of things I liked about SGA before we broke up and I'm always glad to read good Cadman fic. :)

Long Game by [livejournal.com profile] jennyo
It's the long-awaited SGA girls poker night featuring Cadman, Katie Brown, Cardsharkin'!Weir with bonus Vala and Sam. It's pretty good, even after you take out my weird thing for fics where characters play games and someone cheats.

Superpowers by Punk & Pares.
Best. Fic. Ever. It starts with Rodney finding Cadman and Katie Brown making out and ends up with him convinced that he makes women gay and going slightly nuts. HILARIOUS. SERIOUSLY. Oh Rodney, how I love you.

Also, why are almost all of my Atlantis icons of Shep? I admit I'm a complete sucker for his kicked puppy expression but my love of everyone else is great as well. *goes about remedying*

I have many thoughts today and almost none of them have any real significance.

1. Why, oh, why did I lend my tc-on-dvd collection to my girlfriend? I've been getting this huge urge to watch either The West Wing, Sports Night, Buffy or Angel and she has them all. Possibly other ones I haven't craved yet.

2. Speaking of tv on dvd, I really need to see how cheap I can get Gilmore Girls Season 1.

3. I never remember why I have long nails, they have such ridiculous upkeep.

4. Best. Crack!fic. Ever.. By [livejournal.com profile] fox1013, it's an an RPF Alias, Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy crack!fic with zombies, Mary McDonnell and a Canadian Actor Mafia. And it's called "Tacky Lesbian Hijinks" and has Kate Walsh and Katherine Hiegl being big dykes. DUDE. I AM SO DEAD FROM THE AWESOME.

5. It's possible I look like I should be serving drinks at a country club or working at Canadian Tire.

6. My pissed off-ness about Grey's Anatomy being moved to Thursdays has grown, since CTV has decided to not only move Grey's to Thursdays as well, but shift the time slot to 8pm. I would be concerned if I got drunk a lot because Thursday is go-out-and-party-night. Still I almost always miss the 8pm shows because I'm out.

7. My love of an actress is directly proportional to how close her name is to 'Kate'. Let's take a looksee, shall we? Kate Walsh and Katherine Heigl from Grey's Anatomy, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica, Katherine Isabelle, Kate Beckinsdale (pre-Underworld) and to a smaller degree, Kathryn Erbe, Kate Burton, Kate Chopin, and Kate Bosworth.

Exceptions: Katie Couric, Katie Holmes and Kate Hudson.

Anyways, I've been reccing The West Wing over at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van this month and I thought that I might post them here as well.

The first, which I recced on October 3rd:

Title: Laughter, and Other Things Which Make No Sense by Raedbard
Pairing: CJ/Toby/Sam
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] raedbard
Author Website: ex urbe
Why this must be read:

This story was just posted in the last two weeks so it's still new and shiny. The fic is fairly short but what it lacks in length is made up for in great Toby characterization. I imagine this is the kind of dialogue Aaron Sorkin would have written if he was writing smutty interludes. The oodles of sex is more like a backdrop for the way CJ, Toby and Sam relate to one another. Short, sweet and oddly beautiful.

Laughter, and Other Things Which Make No Sense

And the second, that I just posted a few moments ago.
Title: Ruthless by Ellen Milholland
Pairing: CJ/Ann Stark
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] quasiradiant
Author Website: quasiradiance.com (it doesn't seem to be working right now)
Why this must be read:

On The West Wing, Ann Stark was just a one-episode sneaky Republican that had been friends with
Toby for a really long time. Ellen Milholland has taken the character and fleshed her out into a fallible, sensual woman. You can hear the characters speaking the dialogue and the sexual give-and-take between CJ and Ann is so palpable you can practically feel it through the screen. Definitely worth the read and seriously hot.

The First Annual Interstellar Naquadah Open by [livejournal.com profile] butterflykiki (SG1)
Best. Fic. EVAR. Jack and Teal'c go go golfing during the events of 'Window of Opportunity'. I love it when Teal'c is silly (but still serious, natch) and that episode just made me giggle. They argue about par for alien planets! So many moments where I was just laughing hysterically. So much love.

"We had agreed upon that already, O'Neill." Teal'c eyes narrowed in thought, then his mouth creased into a pleased smile. "The winner will wield the Z2000 Super-Soaker during the waterfight in our next repetition of the day at the SGC."

And another SG1 rec:

The Knife's Edge of Madness by Strix Varia
This was recced over at [livejournal.com profile] stargateficrec a few days ago. It's an AU after the end of the Season 5 episode 'Desperate Measures'. Sam is an amnesiac with brain injury. Her recovery is slow, taking almost a year and it honestly *hurts* to read it but it's so good you can't stop. The Sam point of view is spot on and it nails her friendship with Janet and the rest of the team better than most fics. Definitely worth the read.

This is going to be a very bad weekend for me. So any and all of you can help by reccing me some hot fanfic. Femmeslash, regular old slash, het, just make it hot. I know you all are fandom whores, so REC ME, BABY!

Here are the fandoms that I enjoy (in alpha-order because it makes me hot):
  • angel
  • bend it like beckham,
  • buffy the vampire slayer
  • chicago
  • desperate housewives
  • er
  • eulogy
  • farscape
  • gilmore girls
  • harry potter
  • law & order (any flavour)
  • lord of the rings
  • stargate (sg1 or atlantis)
  • sports night
  • the l word
  • the west wing
  • veronica mars

    Plus any and all Canadian shows because I'm almost certain no Cold Squad or Da Vinci's Inquest fic exist.
  • ahkna: (Cute smiley modest Sam)
    Mmmm, first day of the month means new reccers at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van and [livejournal.com profile] stargateficrec. Mmmmmm, so many new fics to read at work tomorrow.
    ahkna: (Cute smiley modest Sam)
    Everyone needs to read this SG1 fic. It's Wheel by Brighid.
    So fucking good. Sam, Teal'c, Jack and Daniel are abandoned on a planet and have to settle down there. Teal'c is out of the picture pretty quickly, leaving room for the Jack/Sam/Daniel. What I like is that it is quite slow, developing the new dynamic and the plodding sexual relationship that emerged after a long time. Plus there is a little porn, a little fluff, a little angst and just...emotion that is delightful. Perfect mix.
    ahkna: (Default)
    This is totally my favourite SG1 fic so far: A Decade of Planets and Three Cups of Tea by Rowan Darkstar ([livejournal.com profile] rowan_d).
    It's Sam/Jack. Yes, I have embraced the het. You don't need to know anything about Stargate to love it. It's pretty and angsty and shippy and GORGEOUS!
