children of dune - leto 1

the great link directory

Okay, much territory to cover here.

First, because my LJ, my rules...

*SQUEE*

girlinthetrilby sent me chocolate! And a bear! I've named the bear Shan. She and John the One Bear have been chatting on my bed since they met. Pictures will appear, because, dammit, Beth sends good bears. Also SV comic book, which I have never, ever seen before ever and dear God, how the HELL can a comic Lex still be so. Damn. Hot.

And coffee.

I am SO damn wired. Seriously, seriously wired.

And a bunny to Child, which child has hidden from me due to the jelly bean issue. Like I would take those jelly beans. Only if they were left out. In my line of sight. Sheesh. No trust there.

And hey, did anyone know--PURPLE OREOS?

*cuddles Beth* You are so my hero, chica.

*lovelovelove* Let me mull porn for you. Or graphics. Or something. I can't think of how to top purple oreos, frankly. Seriously. PURPLE. Lexeos!

Yes, I'm drinking my coffee. *grins*

Okay, second.

The Get Clark Laid Now! Challenge has a home. You can find it at http://illusions.illuminatedtext.com/clarkchallenge.html, where three stories, by Signe, Gothphyle, and I have been linked up.

You know, I may make buttons, banners, and graphics. Adobe and I had A Moment today. *g*

Beth and I are working on that subdomain, playing about, so funness. *hugs Beth*

Third, thanks to everyone for answering my LJ question regarding multifandomness and LJ.

And have to answer monniesgirl_65 here. I have no idea when I'm going to get to comments today, I'm running seriously behind, so.

Answering my own question, as posed by user above.

Has LJ led you to be more multifandom/multipairing/more open in your writing and reading tastes? Or just your writing? Or just your reading? Or is it that multifandom/multipairing/more open people were already attracted to LJ for that very multifandom vibe? Chicken or the egg, chicken or the egg, lalala.

Mindfuck Edition

Respire by martianhousecat. I pimped the LJ version, double pimping the SSA one, finalized and posted. I read--a LOT. I don't get hit like this very often. This hit and it hurt and it made me think. Because Clark's secrets aren't just dangerous in knowing them. They're just as dangerous in the not-knowing, too. Very, very, very highly recommended.

Sunburn by lj user="penelope_z">. When you have a style and you use like a razor to cut, when the creepiness is all in what isn't said, and when the descriptors are what make you shiver--again, these people are the reason I love fanfic. Amazing, horrifying, and so subtle and so blatant at the same time. Penelope does it again and dammit, this is good.

Happy Edition

After reading the above? Trust me, you'll NEED these.

Apolgoies and Promies by tstar78 Oh yes. Happy, lovely, wonderful Lex and Martha chat. Relationships and love and lunch. Totally will make your day bright.

Three Semi-Nightmarish Things by mobiusklein. Hee! Love love love. The first is a horror beyond imagining. *grins* Mmm. Fun fic. Read read read and laugh happily.

Curator of the Life and Death Museum by Punk AU first seaon, post-Pilot, fascinating Lex and Clark. I can see this so easily and it could have happened. Another wonderful fic by a great author.

That--doesn't even put a dent in my list. *sighs* Got to CATCH UP already.

Sites to See

ubertodd, who has brought us some of the hottest fic on the planet, has a page! Go here to pick up all those snippets you've been missing.

Art

celli makes a lovely, lovely cover for Caro's Apologies and Promises here.

slodwick makes an absolutely gorgeous cover for Penelope's Sunburn here. Mmm.

And another one for ubertodd here.

And another one for MEMEME! here for Turn You On Somehow.

*lovelovelove*

*grins* I love covers. I do. It's like an addiction.

Also, fleur bleue sent me a DAMN cool cover for Pretty When You're Mine, Hooker!Clarkfic. This. Is. So. Cute!

Places to Go

celli covers her view of LJ, mailing lists, and etc here in fascinating detail, including her own fannish history. So damn cool.

seemag does it here as well, covering her experiences in Trek.

Anyone else cover the topic? Leave a link. I'd love to read other views.

Yeah. That about covers it. I think.

And right now? Hating koimistress. Made me mull Very Stupid Fic Idea. I don't even think I could pull it off. But. Well. Lots of death and destruction, so you know I'm tempted.

Okay, done. And my WiP listing is officially terrifying.
