Ganked this from [livejournal.com profile] footballslash. It's supposed to reflect football slash fics written this year, but I'm a gonna list fics I wrote in any fandom, any year, and you should feel free to do the same.

Why this must be read: torch is well known for her steamy Krycek-centric fics. This hilarious crossover features our favorite one-armed double agent, but in a new context: making an appointment with Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman to make sure that the current administration isn't about to rock the boat. Krycek's actual appearance is brief, but the banter between Josh, his assistant Donna, and his friend Sam is just terrific.

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!

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 [livejournal.com profile] raedbard
I've never been a big Toby fan, but [livejournal.com 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 [livejournal.com 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.

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!

My RL beta and I were chatting about House recently and came up with a theory about why our favorite shows eventually went downhill. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The West Wing, and now House all started out strong by exploring the balance and conflicting demands of life and work, whether that was battling the forces of darkness, working 24/7 to push a political agenda, or attempting to diagnose the patients that no one else could save. Towards the end, though, that balance was lost. Life became wholly consumed by work, or vice versa. As a result, something essential was sacrificed - the friendships, the complex political issues, the medicine.

In my opinion, Buffy only suffered one bad season (its last). I'm really starting to hope that the same is true for House. What I don't want to see is years of staggering on stubbornly despite dismal ratings as one key actor after another deserts a sinking ship (*cough* The X-Files *cough*).

TITLE: Talisman
FANDOM: The West Wing
RATING: PG
CHARACTERS: Sam; C.J. and Josh in absentia
SUMMARY: You’re probably the world’s worst liar. Angsty Sam drabble, set during “In the Shadow of Two Gunmen Part II.”
DISCLAIMER: Hail to the Chief. That would be Aaron Sorkin, not me.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: A bit different from my comic Josh/Sam dialogues. Feedback welcome.

Just started rewatching Season 1 of The West Wing. House M.D. is the only show I've seen since that even comes close to the brilliance and pace of its dialogue (and in a totally different way, at that). They also share the single take walk-and-talk thing that I love so much (Josh and Sam are so House and Wilson, at least in this).

Also? Lisa E. is great as the law student/call girl with whom Sam accidentally sleeps ("Did you trip over something?") and then tries to reform. Much as I'm hating the Huddy arc, I really am glad that Shore et al. appreciated her performance enough to bring her onto their show.

Wouldn't a crossover (flashback, presumably) be super fun? (I'm not volunteering, mind. I don't know why I never felt compelled to write fic for WW; possibly I was simply too intimidated.)
