Today is the day of [community profile] fringe_exchange reveals! And if you haven't read all the excellent fics (and the one vid!) from that exchange yet, you should go do it.

I wrote a disgraceful charm (1007 words) for [personal profile] wendelah1
Fandom: Fringe
Relationships: Olivia Dunham/Esther Figglesworth
Summary:Two dames, an insufficient number of guns, and some bad jokes. A Brown Betty fic.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] maleyka and [livejournal.com profile] vampirespider for gently separating me from my adverbs and other betaing. Also thanks to [personal profile] mistfarer for helping me title this, even though I wouldn't let her read it because she hasn't seen the episode yet. (Ilu!)

[community profile] fringe_exchange gifts are finally posted! (Well, last night, but I made too many posts then to want to type one for my own journal.) Thanks to everyone for participating; you made being a mod so easy. The masterlist is here, and I encourage you all to go read and comment because there's some great stuff!


It makes me want to do a rewatch, but given how many shows I'm only halfway through watching for the first time (shows I love, even! I'm just horrible at getting back to things if I ever take a break!), I don't know when I'll have the time.


Also, thanks to my fic betas for my exchange fic, I promise I'll credit you properly when I put it up on my AO3 in a week after we deanon. <3

[livejournal.com profile] guingel has made her Islanders primer! Go read it! Marvel at the codependent weirdness! And then come back and write me fic about Johnny and Matt Moulson's sincere feelings about each other because they have SO MANY, and it was adorable. Or, if you'd rather read about the team consensus that Colin McDonald is John Tavares' dog, there's the twitter highlights post, which also has links to that time the Isles just went ahead and filmed it. No, seriously. I need a lot of fic about their D/s puppyplay roommate dynamic, and also the fact that all their friends make fun of them for it constantly. Go read! :D


Also, another reminder that [community profile] fringe_exchange is still open for sign ups!

This was a ton of fun last year, and I hope it gets going again, even though Fringe is off the air. I miss Olivia and co. and it'll be good to get back to them for a bit. :D I co-modded last year, and will this year again, so feel free to ask me questions here or on the comm if you have them!

thoughts )


In other news, someone got very angry at the putative villains in my library copy of N.K. Jemisin's Kingdom of Gods and wrote "ASSHOLES" a dozen times on their glossary entry at the back of the book, with bonus carefully drawn piles of shit. While I can understand the sentiment, it's something of a baffling choice as Jemisin never gave any indication that she disagreed. Were they concerned that other readers might not notice?

I finally caught up on Fringe!

some disjointed thoughts )


[community profile] fringe_exchange went well! Tons of fabulous stuff was posted and people who haven't should check it out! The masterlist is here, and the authors are slowly being revealed. I recorded a podfic of [personal profile] kerithwyn's Lift You Up Over Everything for [personal profile] cantarina which is now up on my AO3 here, and received a wonderful vid, and a fantastic fic, both featuring Astrid! Thanks so much to everyone who participated!

Finally got around to watching this week's Fringe, which says something about how this season has been going, even if I was busy-ish this weekend. Not bad? spoilers )

I also finished Nnedi Okorafor's Akata Witch, which was good, but I think suffered because it's just not quite as good as her earlier books, despite being excellent. I would also guess that it's aimed a little younger and that's why the writing was so much more straightforward. I did enjoy the fact that Sunny, the protagonist, discovers a parallel community of magical users that actually has realistic structure that she has to enter into, and she is special, but not so special as to transcend society completely. I was also very impressed by spoilers for the very end ) It's a cute book though, and certainly one of very few fantasy novels set in modern Nigeria, so highly recommended if you like that kind of thing.

The most watchable ep of the season in some ways. spoilers )

Speaking of Fringe though, [community profile] fringe_exchange is still open for sign-ups! Hint, hint. :D

I am infinitely delighted that Fringe is back! spoilery thoughts on the episode )

I also finally got around to watching the Elementary pilot! I enjoyed it a fair bit, though spoilers ) Will probably watch the next episode.

spoilers, all the spoilers, everything is a spoiler )

In less emotionally incoherent news: last night's Pens-Flyers game was an amazing let down of people remembering that they are adults who all know how to play hockey rather than small children who aren't quite clear on the rules. I especially enjoyed how the announcers were also clearly sad that things had calmed the fuck down. And we're moving on to Game 6! Which is all I want really: I don't really have a team I support so much as I want to watch these two teams play all the fail!hockey against each other forever because it's funny as hell. I have been following other series because apparently hockey is a thing that has been happening to me, but they have been so much more staid in comparison, which is a hell of a thing to say about ridiculous hits and endless last minute game-tying shots.

all the spoilers )

Also last week's Community was great. They always do the most note-perfect parodies of things and the war documentary was particularly sharp.
