I just inhaled the first two seasons of Broadchurch and loved David Tennant playing against type as an obnoxious but heroic S1 Housian character (with what I assume is his native Scottish accent). I see that there's quite a lot of fanfiction out there, but is any of it good?

Since I can't buy any new books (ha ha), and I am currently rewatching Sherlock BBC, I am asking for everyone's favorite (or the fandom's most celebrated) Sherlock fics. I adore wordstrings' work and have been going through her bookmarks, but I'm sure there's a lot more good stuff out there. And as you probably already know, I'm not picky about pairings or squicked by character death or anything like that - the most important thing is that the fic be really well-written and in-character. Recs for specific fics or authors, or links to rec sites, would be greatly appreciated!

Two US agencies are holding hearings on copyright reform; enough powerful people (ok, companies) think that copyright law needs changing that this might actually happen.  Don't let it happen without fannish voices: the OTW is soliciting stories of how creating transformative works has helped people in day-to-day life, whether that's through building language skills, video editing, writing, coding, or anything else.  You don't need to provide personal information, but the more specific the better.  You can submit your story through this form.  We need to speak up, or we'll be left out.

Okay. So I just finished watching the BBC miniseries The Last Enemy. It features both Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Carlyle, and it's a sort of modern-day 1984 by way of The X-Files. Without giving anything away, I think I can safely squee about how hot BC is in this series - and yes, there are nude scenes - and how interesting it is to see him play a character who has much in common with Sherlock - the obsessive compulsion, the desire to pursue his cerebral work without distractions, the rapid-fire and all-too-candid lines of logical reasoning, the always-difficult relationship with his elder brother... yet is still recognizably a confused, passionate Everyman facing larger forces beyond his comprehension. Yes. See it. You know you want to!

Now, for those of you who have already seen it...

I just watched Bad Influence with Rob Lowe and James Spader.

First thought: Damn, Rob Lowe is hot when he's evil.

Second thought: Surely there is a good House/Wilson fic out there with a similar plot. )

I ask because I am recommending XF fic on [ profile] crack_van in September. Looking for oldies but goodies from back in the day that have not appeared on their rec lists yet (don't worry about that part - I'll check for whatever you suggest to me). Thanks!

The plug: As many of you know, House M.D. News is a daily bulletin that provides links to the news, discussion, and fanworks that appear on a wide variety of House M.D. LJ communities. As long as you're not spoilerphobic, I highly recommend subscribing in order to hear about cool stuff happening on comms you might not think to join yourself.

The plea: We are currently looking for a new editor or editors to compile the newsletter on Sundays and Mondays. I do Wednesdays, and I can tell you that it only takes me about an hour once a week, and it's a great way to give something back to the fandom. Primitive knowledge of html is helpful but not required. Please contact me if interested!

I have been unable to import my last two fics to An Archive of Our Own using my LJ URL. Has anyone else had this problem - is LJ suddenly not compatible with AO3 anymore for some reason? Is it because I upgraded to the latest version of Firefox?

It's difficult to do a crossover well, but when they work, they make me extremely happy :). Please rec any of your own favorites in the comments!

I enjoy the show but am not obsessed with it, so I've only dipped my toes into the fandom. But that was enough to discover these :).

Fanfiction and Filks

Progression by [ profile] lurkisblurkis  and [ profile] the_great_snark 
A series of brief bits based on random prompts paints a hilarious composite portrait of a developing Sheldon/Penny relationship.

You should already know this vidder from the House/Wilson subfandom. I don't even ship Sheldon/Penny, but this is incredibly well done.

A tricky fandom for me because, as with House MD, the difficult-to-imitate dialogue is my favorite aspect of the show. This is the archive where I used to read excellent TWW fic. More recs are always welcome!

Fanfiction and Filks

Wayfinding by Jackie Thomas
In the wake of the Rosslyn shooting, Josh learns to navigate again with help from Sam. Totally my kind of thing.

You and Me of the 10,000 Wars by Luna and Ellen M
Josh/Sam UST, Josh/Amy, and Sam/Ainsley but not really. If anyone knows of more big juicy, political, incredibly in-character stories like this, please inform me!

No Exit by [ profile] raedbard
I've never been a big Toby fan, but [ profile] raedbard is changing my mind. She claims that nothing much happens in this fic that has Sam and Toby stuck at JFK, but oh, the lovely in-character banter!

The House Drawn in Threes by [ profile] raedbard
I never would have believed it, but Toby/Sam/CJ have just become my OT3.

I wish that I could find that one post-"Somebody's Going to Emergency" Josh/Sam fic that I really liked.

As with The X-Files, I am basically reccing my favorite fics from the period which I consider to have been the heyday of the fandom. As always, additional recs are welcome in the comments!

Bring it on )
flywoman: (Default)
Okay, two disclaimers here.
1) I am mostly (at the moment exclusively) reccing the work of my friends back in the day. That said, they were a pretty awesome bunch and  still get recced with great enthusiasm by people who are not me.
2) I have not actually reread most of these stories in their entirety in this century (because they are long, and I have moved on to other obsessions). If you have any more recent favorites... or any other favorites at all... please rec them in the comments :).
Here goes... )
flywoman: (HatTrick!Messi)
Sherlock BBC is an enormously active fandom, and I can't pretend to have sampled more than a tiny fraction of the offerings, but these are my favorites to date. Thanks to [ profile] justjuly4  for her suggestions; feel free to add your favorites in the comments!
The Recs )

This was ganked nearly verbatim from [ profile] jezziejay  except that I have changed the fic link to my own firstborn.

This *cough* gem was my first ever fic posted to [ profile] house_wilson.  And it was almost a year ago.  And I'm still here!  Well, it's all your own fault for being so nice to me.  Anyway, in order to, em, celebrate, I was hoping that you guys might link me your first ever comm posted H/W fics.  Friendship, slash - whatever.  I'd just love to read your first borns!  Any takers??  Or should that be givers...? 

Rec me!

No, I don't mean "rec my stuff" (although of course I'd be thrilled if you did). I'm requesting your recs for fic, art, and vids for my various fandoms. I think that I've got a pretty good handle on House M.D. at this point, so while I would welcome little-known favorites from that fandom, I am eagerly seeking recs - even the most apparently obvious ones - from Battlestar Galactica (new), Bones, Buffy/Angel, Castle, Firefly, Sherlock BBCStar Trek (classic or reboot), The Big Bang Theory, The West Wing, and The X-Files.

This is an ongoing request - I am putting a personal favorites recs list together to be regularly updated. You can probably guess what I'd like based on what I write and/or have recced in the past. Funny, angsty, hot, and most importantly, evocative of the show in question. Gen or any pairings as long as it's really well-crafted and in-character. Thanks so much for any pointers!
