One more pimp of the remix of my story. No, I'm not going to shut up about how much I love it.

Ship Song (Der Himmel Uber Berlin Remix). It's a Good Omens/Wings of Desire crossover, ffs. You know you want it.

Anybody care to guess which remix is the one I wrote? I'll only say it is in one of my qualifying fandoms (I only have three of those), and the person whose story I remixed IS on my friendslist.

Correct guesses get a custom ficlet. :D Obviously, I can't tell you if you're correct or not until the reveal.

Fuck work. Don't wanna talk or think about it anymore.

For me these days, the best temporary remedy for the Republican Economy Blues is the SQUEE.

So have some recs! This is what brightened up my last 24 hours more than anything else.

Harry Potter

Essay: [livejournal.com profile] rexluscus has written an astoundingly beautiful and wise journey of meta on Snape in DH. (**SPOILERZLIEKWHOA**)

Illustrated fic: Platform 9.99999999999999 by Didodikali ([livejournal.com profile] trickofthedark). Gen. Dumbledore, King's Cross, and atonement. (**SPOILERZLETMESHOWYOUTHEM**) Quiet and strong and packs a profound punch. Very inventive and unusual.

Art: Inspired by another story by Didodikali, Just Try Me by Frodobolson72 on DeviantArt. G-rated but smoking. Made well before DH, so no spoilerz...except it almost is, in a way!

***

Pratchett-tastic!

There's only thing in all the worlds that could have improved Monstrous Regiment. I didn't realize what it was until I read the first part of this story. Duh - appearances by Aziraphale and Crowley, of course!

At Stake by [livejournal.com profile] daughtersofisis. Good Omens/Discworld crossover, PG-13ish. Part 1 of a WIP. Vivid, plotty, hysterical--has that so hard-to-achieve Pratchettesque quality of making me want to stop and applaud the author every few lines, while still maintaining a plot that can keep the dream of fiction going even with the fourth wall made of Swiss cheese.

If you read only one Good Omens crossover this week, make it this one:

Falling Without a Parachute
by [livejournal.com profile] musegaarid
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: James Bond/Crowley (!)

It's tense, tautly-plotted, rich with all sorts of prickly nuggets on good and evil and the liminality of secret agents, it's wistful and moving, and when it's funny it's very funny (vintage car one-upmanship!) and when it's hot it's very hot. And she does a spot-on first-person Bond voice.


***

Here's a silly meme from [livejournal.com profile] shadowvalkyrie via [livejournal.com profile] skull_bearer:

The Challenge: Assemble a superteam from your various fandoms.
Your team must consist of the following:
(1) Team Leader
(1) Warrior
(1) Smartypants
(1) Hottie
(1) Comic Relief
All your superteam members must be from DIFFERENT fandoms.


here's mine -- all of them from different fandoms.

The superhero team:
Team Leader – Sam Vimes
Warrior – Éowyn of Rohan
Smartypants – John Constantine
Hottie – Grownup Adam Young
Comic Relief – All the Democrats in the US Senate


The supervillain team:
Team Leader – Great Cthulhu (why settle for a lesser evil?)
Warrior – Anakin Skywalker at his whiniest
Smartypants – Stephen Colbert
Hottie – Young Tom Riddle
Comic Relief – Borat. And a bunch of owlbears.

***

OK, now back to the Porn Battle. Six days of it left to go. Why yes, I am hoping to do one a day. Why yes, they will all be different fandoms. I think. That's the plan anyway.

Like lots and lots of people, I've been reading the ongoing revelations about truly trainwrecky onionlike layers of malicious batshittery in the HP fandom a few years ago...

[livejournal.com profile] metafandom has been chock full of essays lately on what this says about interpersonal dynamics in fandom, the cult of the BNF, the justifiability of anonymity. All of them, I find absolutely fascinating reading. Sometimes I nod vigorously, sometimes I shake my head just as vigorously.

On occasion the point has been made that the cult of the BNF is so overwhelming in HP that everyone can't help but fall prey when the situation goes bad. I disagree, kind of. It's really a matter of where one might have the good or bad luck to "live."

For length, and a tortured Urban Life metaphor )

And in other news, my fun with the Ultimate Fandom OTP Generator continues to bear fruit.

Check the comments for fabulous crossover crack:

[livejournal.com profile] catherinecookmn wrote 2001:A Space Odyssey/Discworld

[livejournal.com profile] very_improbable wrote Neverwhere/The Daily Show.

They work.

This weekend, I was getting a series of spam in which all the subject headers were lines from Longfellow's "Hiawatha." It's been stuck in my head. Anyone else get poem earworms?


[livejournal.com profile] htebazytook had to go and remind me the Ultimate OTP Pairing Generator exists. It's a black-hole-force time-sink, but sometimes sitting there and clicking really pays off...


Aslan is shagging DickCheney

What's Your Ultimate Fandom OTP?
Shiver My Timber--A Pirate RPG





I want someone to write me these for my birthday:

cut for absurdity )

OK, maybe not Meatwad.

ETA: The indecently brilliant [livejournal.com profile] catherinecookmn has just written me a ficlet: HAL9000/Granny Weatherwax.

Also, in her wonderful CON.TXT recap post, [livejournal.com profile] isiscolo links to [livejournal.com profile] ellen_fremedon's recap of the Fandom Spelling Bee! Laughing...too...hard...can't...breathe. (As a Regional-level competitor in my childhood, I must admit that this would have defeated me.) Man, I gotta get me to some cons one of these days.

Man, the friendslist was bringin' it today!

Multifandom recs.

Harry Potter, but with mucho mass appeal:
I'm sure most people know this by now, but [livejournal.com profile] mctabby has commemorated the 30th installment of the cracktastic Summary Executions series with a Greatest Hits edition. 300 luscious horrors inflicted upon the poor defenseless English language, and of course the characters we know and fuck with mercilessly love, only some of whom are defenseless. Some are almost Zenlike: "Nagini plans to take matters into her own hands." "A story told by the eyes of someone unwanted."

Crossover crack, sort of; LOTR AND The Princess Bride. [livejournal.com profile] mollyringwraith posts a collaborative effort: The Lord of the Rings Movie Scripts, Done Entirely in 'The Princess Bride' Quotes. Not only is this a geek apotheosis, it works so brilliantly, terrifyingly well.

Good Omens AND Harry Potter: If you're a [livejournal.com profile] lower_tadfield regular, you probably saw [livejournal.com profile] blue_phlox's gorgeous portraits of four sexy Supernaturals. But if you only saw that one, and didn't follow the link to her own lj, you probably didn't see the gorgeous portrait of the young Sirius and Regulus Black, all decked out in their proud-Pureblood vintage. They're both here.

Good Omens proper, although it's quite improper: [livejournal.com profile] professor_mary presents very unusual SMUT: All Mine, in which the connections between the Horsepersons and the Them get explored in a very erotic and very creepy way. Is it a pairing or a three-way? Bit of both, really. (Adam/Brian/Implied Pollution, NC-17)


Harry Potter AND Lord of the Rings: [livejournal.com profile] thrihyrne has written a HP/Tolkienverse crossover that's just bloody brilliant: Of Dwarves and Stewed Lucius, here. Dodges and skewers all possible thought of cliche: Lucius Malfoy and Second Age Dwarves. Also more references to needing to relieve oneself than are found in the entire Tolkien corpus.


Go enjoy, and give these geniuses the love like it's your last rear at Hogwarts!

Being held for ransom by Muses. Writing. Don't send help.

This is a Pimp Other People Post, Potterverse-centric. Assume everything listed has HBP spoilers (though not everything does, most do, and I can't be arsed to sort it.)

[livejournal.com profile] mamushi draws How Dementors Breed.

[livejournal.com profile] teawithvoldy has another take on it

Oh, just join [livejournal.com profile] dementor_love. I did!

[livejournal.com profile] sioniann does excellent Albus/Fawkes.

Nature's First Green is Gold is sad and beautiful.

Burning Day is NC-17, FILTHY, squicky, and CRACK-tastic!

I do so appreciate a writer who can hit both those heights and, er, depths in writing about the same relationship. "But love has pitched his mansion in the place of excrement; For nothing can be sole or whole / That has not been rent." Crazy Jane would not lie to you.

[livejournal.com profile] sazzlette has written The Boy Who Cried Wolf. (Fenrir/Young Remus, PG). Creepy, fairy-tale. (Fenrir is one of the Muses I'm luring, so, close to the bone. So to speak. Owooooooooo, gnaw.)

On the cracked-out crossover front (HP/Good Omens in this case), if you sssssscions of Sssssslytherin like your sssssssuggestive ssssssillinessss more ssssscaly and sssssssibilant (OK, I'll ssstop!), [livejournal.com profile] dreya_uberwald presents A Turn for the Bizarre. Crowley/Nagini, with a twisssst at the end I won't ssssspoil (Ha, I lied).


***

Now I'm succumbing to a temptation I didn't think I would. I blame HBP, and I also blame [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots (Gorgeous drawing of Snape and Draco, worksafe, here.) and [livejournal.com profile] linnpuzzle for this (also gorgeous image of Snape and Draco, also worksafe).

ETA: OK, one more art link. Goth!Trio, from mugglenet. Worksafe. Not beverage-safe. It's like every bad teen-angst Hot Topic fanfic come to life.

So who's got the post-HBP Snaco? Bring it on. Rec it for me. Hook me up.

[livejournal.com profile] dreya_uberwald was taking ficlet requests in her LJ a little while back. She's fond of doing crossovers and brilliant with teh funneh. I requested a conversation between two cranky, creature-comfort-addicted, long-suffering Agents of the Divine Known By Many Names In the Mortal Lands. (Most commonly as Aziraphale and Gandalf).

She's done it and it's delightful: Old Friends

Featuring many hilarious reminiscences, and cameo appearances, by...well, you'll see.

Thank you SO MUCH!
