children of dune - leto 1

svfic: a separate peace: carpe diem

I updated my webpage recs somewhat--or basically, whatever I had on hand and fixed some links. I need to keep up better. You've seen them all before--either here or in the diary.

One thing though--does anyone know where Maygra's work is? Anyone?

Anyway.

Recs

Topography by hackthis. Mmm. Clark/Lex in the language of geography. Also? Very hot. And gorgeous style going on.

Fireworks by penelope_z. Another off-center, slightly surreal, and very painful fic from the lovely Penelope, who just hurts me. Beautiful, moving, and just. Mmm. Yes.

Wilde Like by thamiris. Oh damn. Absolutely gorgeous Prodigial missing scene. Rich, wonderfully written Clark, sexy and sweet and beautiful. Not to mention how great Lex is. *happy*

Sparks Fly Upward by liviapenn. Whoo hoo! Livia wrote Lucasfic! An unexpected meeting between Lucas and Ryan in Edge City. Wonderfully written and so good.

Five Imaginary Incidents from the Lives of Unimportant People by pearl_o. Well, damn. The five things challenge has brought about some seriously interesting ideas, and this one is no exception. I like them all, but my especial favorite is number four. Guess why. HIGHLY recommended.

The Green Fairy* by lexcorp_hope. Wow. No spoilers, do a cold read. It's--REALLY not what I expected when I started reading. Go go go.

Edited to correct title, because I'm a moron



Another Rec Redux, since this will remind me to add it to my webpage. I have GOT to organize my entries soon so I can find these things when I need them.

Breathing Amber by harriet_spy.

It's one of the most chilling stories I've read in any fandom. There's a slow start, this beautiful town, the lovely Lana, and the faintest sense of unease that grows slowly through the story. A strangely sick feeling of not-change, and you really don't get it until the end.

For a characterization of first season Lana, it's marvelous. The girl who wants everything to remain the same--her friends, her hometown, her life. And Smallville becomes just that--a huge, unliving monument to a world that should be gone, all held by the power of her need and one man's determination.

Frankly, in all its subtlety, it's one of the most powerful stories I've ever read, and it creeps me out EVERY time.

Other Things

I need more hours in the day.

Still reorganizing memories page and adding as I find them. I cannot find the long entry I did on Ruat Caelum or Everything's Eventual here, though I think I missed the latter just skimming.

Anyway. Ficletness. Kind of--meandering. I know where I'm going, but not entirely how to get there, if that makes any sense at all. Or maybe this will be a huge collection of loosely related episode codas.

Spoilers for Rush.
