mercyrobot: (nu-trek k & mc bridge)

This post was actually going to be about something else, but I decided we'd all be better off if I just talked about Star Trek.

So yeah. Star Trek. Specifically, fic thereon. I was askeered of it.

And uh, a good bit of that was actually not at all unfounded. There is some serious WTFery out there and I'm wondering if these people even watched the whole movie, let alone maybe googled real quick to get a few basic facts right.

What I feared most, though, from the very moment Karl Urban said, "I may throw up on you," squee though I did, was the veritable deluge of fic that would result from McCoy being played by someone who's actually hot. I did not want to see my cranky, damaged doctor get fanon-steined into some barely-recognizable hair-product-using fluffpot who occasionally points out that he is a doctor, not a what-have-you, and pines after Kirk like a little puppy dog.

BUT IT'S OKAY. IT'S ALL OKAY. Because of [livejournal.com profile] inell, it's all going to be just fine. Her Two Men & a Motorbike series is required reading. Kirk and McCoy are their sexy nouveau selves, but totally recognizable as the known-and-loved too. And it's EPIC. I totally didn't used to like this pairing, either. In my TOS days it was K/S and naught but. I went into it thinking I probably wouldn't like it-- I figured if I don't like it when Inell does it, I won't like it ever. But good lord I love it.

Uh, yeah. That was it, actually. I'm gonna go eat now.

Oh, hey! If you've got STXI recs stick them here, yeah? It can be like a rummage sale.

Because [livejournal.com profile] marvola said so, 8 random facts, me-related )

Also, fic recs. Specifically crossovers. I posted these at TWU but I figured I might as well bring them here too. All Torchwood-related, all awesome. Possibly nothing you haven't already read, but also for posterity. If you know of any good ones (TW or not), by all means bring them over! [Insert creepy voice and something about 'precious.']

Complete:
Empty Spaces Between Stars by Nightanddaze. (NC-17) CSI crossover with extremely hot Jack/Ianto/Greg Sanders and plot. This is totally recommended reading for anyone, even if you don't watch CSI.
Advantages of Travel by Elishabet. (PG-13) Firefly! Jack on Serenity! Captain-snogging!
A Little Matter of Life and Death by Unfeathered. (NC-17) Jack/Angel. I pretty much consider this canon, actually.

WIPs:
Snapshots by Asrai. (R) Queer As Folk US. I'm in love with this. Your average QAF/TW crossover probably involves Jack and Brian Kinney getting groiny. This does not. This has Justin and Ianto as roommates (it makes sense, don't worry), and a whole lot of mysterious. This is from the person who brought you 'The Night Starts Here' (a.k.a. 'that one where Ianto goes to work at Torchwood Two').
And this just started, but I'm highly excited about it-- The Hogwarts Reunion Is When Everything Changes (And Torchwood Is Ready) by Lilithilien. (NC-17) Because Jack/Draco. I can't wait.
