insta!rec - Colorado Springs by ltlj

It's like Christmas all over again.

Colorado Springs by ltlj, Retrograde universe, prequel to Vegas - it's tense, and despite knowing how everything turns out in Vegas, totally works the suspense beautifully.

Entire series can be found at the main page, Retrograde. Counting at six stories in the main series, three Retrograde-verse outside the main storyline, and two snippets. And pretty much the one thing I'd take to my desert island to introduce the natives to the wonder of sci-fi and SGA. See my earlier wild numbered flailing here for--um, wild flailing. With numbers.

Seriously, unless you are on that island (I'll be there soon! With DVDs!) then you *have* to read this. If you already read it, I think a re-read is in order.

Um. I'm a *tiny* bit infatuated with this universe.

when fandom is awesome

Seriously, I wish I was in her fandom. This is a truly awesome person..

For background, here, on a holiday gift exchange gone very, very wrong and some awesome fans making it right. I've been reading it for the last few days, and seriously, I cannot even *write* HP and I was trying to trick my brain into giving me *something* here.

Anyway. Thought I'd share the coolness. The perpetrators frankly don't deserve the attention, but the chick this harmed--and the people stepping up--totally do.
