1. RiffTrax is the awesomest thing ever since ever ever.

2. Linkin Park's new album comes out in six days! *grabby hands* Until then, I have "Waiting for the End" and "The Catalyst" on loop. Again and again and again and again and

3. The Meme of Many Recs!

Day 20. A fic by one of your favorite authors

With Six You Get Eggroll by [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza (Fraser/Kowalski) - due South

'You spilled your juice, your pictures suck, and you lost your zebra. That is a very hard day. That is such a hard day when you are three.' )
zukkokya: (OMG)
1. I have this insanely strong desire to watch BSG again. Only I don't know if I can handle watching the episodes wherein Second Favorite Character goes bugfuck and then dies. But I miss Starbuck! And Lee! And maybe this time I won't cry every time The Damn Adama Music comes on. ...I will believe this until it becomes true.

2. Speaking of awesome, I need to find an English copy of Mockingjay. We needs it.. I mean, I could just order it online, but that'd be cheating, like if Frodo had just let the eagle carry him to Mount Doom. I need an epic journey before I can acquire Mockingjay or it doesn't count. However, I can use Google, because Google's my Aragorn. Which...makes my iPhone Sam?

3. More of The Meme of Many Recs!

I'm skipping day eighteen because I can't remember which fics were remixes and which weren't, so as soon I think of one, I'll go back and add it in. So, instead!

Day 19. A fic that makes you laugh

a passage that sings by [livejournal.com profile] dorkorific (Zach/Chris) - Star Trek RPS

Go play in front of a truck. )
zukkokya: (ROCK ON)
1. Sublime* news! I'll be doing the next round of due South recs over at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van!

I might have a special definition of "sublime."

(Sublime: 1. Super awesome; 2. Spectacularly hot)

2. The Meme of Many Recs! continues!

Day 17. A fic that holds a lot of meaning to you

Anything Worth Dying For by [livejournal.com profile] waldorph (Dean/Castiel) - Supernatural

In the late 20th and early 21st century, the relationships of two consenting adults of the same gender was frowned upon. )
zukkokya: (couch)
Day 13. A fic you liked when you were younger

Daydreams by D.C. Logan (Heero/Duo) - Gundam Wing

Heero was home. It was time to kill Wufei. )
zukkokya: (pew pew pew!)
1. I have decided that I want the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" to follow me around as my life's one-song soundtrack.


Day 12. A fic with excellent banter

Okay, so, banter is pretty much my favorite thing in the world. Be it movie, book, play, what have you, if there's stellar banter, I'll fall in love guaranteed. There may also be truly terrible parts, and I'll probably be displeased by them, but the banter will have ensured my unbreakable devotion and my complaints will be more along the lines of, "Meh," than any kind of intelligent criticism.

We loves the banter.

So! Instead of doing just one measly rec, today we're doing THREE.

1. The Illustrated Man by [livejournal.com profile] londondrowning (Kirk/McCoy) - Star Trek

McCoy pulls back, startled. 'What? What the hell, Jim?' )

2. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, in Soviet Russia, Romance Writes You by [livejournal.com profile] thalialunacy (Kirk/McCoy) - Star Trek

Did you really give him Russian poetry? )

3. Murphy's Law of Jim Kirk Diplomacy by [livejournal.com profile] _seven_crows (gen) - Star Trek

'Yes, Jim, you have to stay on the floor, because if you don't stay on the floor you'll bleed out and die and on your tombstone it's going to read, 'Here lies James Tiberius Kirk - '' )

1. Today has been spectacularly awesome. Sun's out, trains were practically empty, had lunch by Osaka Castle, started reading a new Diana Wynne Jones book, got wild amounts of writing finished, heading to the gym later--just a great, simple day. Am happy to be alive. That is all. ♥

2. Saw this photo on [livejournal.com profile] peacock's journal (ETA: I should have recognized it! It's also been featured on Sex is Not the Enemy, one of my favorite sites out there. The original photo is by 5pianos on deviantart--go go gadget Google!) and wanted to share with y'all: Voila! )


Day 11. A fic that changed your perceptions of the characters

Theft of Assets, Destruction of Property by [livejournal.com profile] helenish (Draco/Neville) - Harry Potter

'Oh, right, it's so insane to think someone might try to kidnap Lucius Malfoy's beautiful only son, who's also married to me, a guy no one holds a grudge against for helping to fuck up their stupid pureblood evil think tank, yeah, what was I thinking?' Neville says, which is possibly the longest sentence he's ever said to Draco. )

1. Because of yesterday's resounding success with iTunes' genius sidebar, today I went on an ill-advised shopping spree and got myself some more gorgeous music to write to. I'm always trying to improve my writing, but alongside that goal, I've decided to revive my childhood dream of composing music for the piano. It's such a beautiful instrument, and I've always had a special fondness for songs that use piano as a focal point (which is probably how Linkin Park got my heart with "In the End"). I haven't played in years, though, so first I'm going to have to reeducate myself in reading music.

2. SHERLOCK. Oh my God, BBC, how much do I love you? So much. Oceans of love. Galaxies of love. "Do you know you do that out loud?" "Sorry, I'll shut up." "No, it's...fine." GALAXIES, BBC. CARRY ON.

3. Day six of The Meme of Many Recs!

Day 06. A guilty pleasure fic

A Various Language by [livejournal.com profile] destina (Jack/Ennis) - Brokeback Mountain

Excerpt: Just as they had always done, they set about making camp, but this time it was permanent. )
zukkokya: (hello ladies)
Four things:

1) Having perused the photographic evidence, I can now safely conclude that Zac Efron is not a real person. He appears to be mathematically, aesthetically, and sexitastically perfect. Therefore, I have been led to conclude that he must be an INCEPTION. An inception of epically gorgeous proportions.


2) Earlier today, the genius sidebar in iTunes introduced me to this song, and since then I've listened to it approximately forty-three times. Wait...now it's forty-four. *g* I've been writing for most of that time, but I keep getting distracted because epic songs like this always inspire equally epic music videos in my head. Also, Swahili is a gorgeous language. I...want to learn it. A little. Maybe. So much.

3) I think I hate the floor. I can't figure out any other reason why I can't sit in a chair without automatically going into yoga poses or throwing one leg on the desk and the other on the bed or both on the nearest elevated surface. I think I must unconsciously hate floors, or why else wouldn't my feet want to be on them?

4) Today is day five of The Meme of Many Recs! (I wasn't intending on italicizing it every day, but, yes. It's a pattern now, and I can't fight the urge to follow my own patterns.)

Day 05. A fic pairing you weren't sure you'd like but ended up loving

A Man of Questionable Morals by [livejournal.com profile] katieforsythe (Holmes/Watson) - Sherlock Holmes

Excerpt: 'Then how can you expect me to act callously in your own case?' )
zukkokya: (gabriel)
Today, I begin the Meme of Many Recs!

I saw this meme on [livejournal.com profile] china_shop's LJ and I think the list is fantastic, so from today onward I'll be posting a fic rec each day for the next thirty days. I couldn't make up my mind on one fandom, so I'll be posting recs from many fandoms including but not limited to: due South, Stargate Atlantis, Supernatural, Merlin, Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Inception, Torchwood, and Queer as Folk (UK/US).

So, onward!
Day 01. A fic with a great opening

Weathering by [livejournal.com profile] stillane (John/Rodney) - Stargate Atlantis

Excerpt: The first time John Sheppard meets Rodney McKay, he’s a talking blur of orange intensity, a sun in the universe spinning slowly through John’s vision. )
