Let's start simple.

Recs

Gentle by Alicia Malone. Sweet and subtle and so gentle it made me ache. I loved every second of reading it.

In Another Life by dolimir. You may remember this author from the lovely Two Voices fic, and definitely does not disappoint with this one. I'd give a LOT to see her flesh this out from top to bottom, but what I got was a good, good read. And left plenty for my imagination to wander in. *g*

Jailbird by aelita. *grins* Okay, I have a--thing--for pretty boys in dresses and make-up. I blame Te. Leave me alone. This was SO much fun to read! Loved the set up and LOVED Lex's reaction. And did I mention hot? I should have. 'Cause it is.

Push by lexcorp_hope. This story is especially good if read with her LJ entry on Lana, found here. Lana is hard to write--only Sarah T and a few others have ever made me really feel a fanfic Lana accurate to canon and I like how Hope wrote this. I did feel it and it creeped and yet slid into canon as well very nicely. Anyway, highly recced.

Towards Sundown by MHC. I liked this for a lot of reasons, first in the LJ, now even mroe here. Exploration of Lillian isn't done nearly often enough, and I really, really like this take on her. And beautifully written, but what else can you EXPECT of MHC anyway?

Fannish Things

happyminion, iscarise and hackthis are making incredibly happy sounds of Pyro/Iceman love. And in Iscarise's case, also Pyro in general slashiness.

Let me count the ways this makes me happy.

So did this, which I have yet to send feedback on, but LJ is being weird about comments, so huh.

Freeze Out. Some seriously good Bobby POV in this one, and beautifully written, per the usual. Mmm.

God, I have to see this movie now.

Yes, this was a totally gratuitous entry. I shoudl be in bed, but I'm not. I will be sleepy tomorrow. This should bother me and it doesn't. *grins* Oh well. I need new things to read. Muchly.

And as stated above, comments are being REALLY wanky, so I WILL answer tomorrow, I swear, but thanks to those who sent feedback on Gladly. It's--disturbingly domestic. Where DOES this stuff come from? *hugs* Thank you.

Love to slodwick, debchan, jainieg and taraljc, who had a really, really sucky day recently. I hope the rest of the week goes a LOT better.

God, I should not be drinking caffeine this late. *sighs*

You still haven't seen X2 yet? Well, take a good hard look at Xavier's school -- I just heard a few days ago it's the same building they use as the Luthor mansion...

*blinks* Really? Oh damn.

*grins* THAT is cool.

The report came from KryptonSite and the building itself has its own website too...

Hey, just a quick note to thank you for the rec. You really made my morning.

Especially considering that I spent the WHOLE day yesterday reading "Somewhere I Have Never Traveled" and its sequel. Goodness, I didn't get a frellin thing done yesterday. LOL! My biggest mistake was reading part of it at work.

The sex scenes were so hot that I think I might have even groaned once. LOL!

I was going to do a huge email to you and cut and paste what I liked, but then I realized I would only end up sending the entire stories back to you.

I know you were worried about over-editing. Let me assure you that you didn't. That the stories are pretty nigh on perfect.

What I want to know is why you aren't writing professionally?

np. That was a very, very fun fic to read.

And thanks! *blushes* I really do seem to not be able to write without someone getting laid. Surely a bad thing. You know, somewhere in teh universe. *g*

*hugs*

thanks, sweetie! So far, Terry Pratchett is helping :)

Hey, I've been recced. *pokes the rec*

Thanks. You just made me a very happy gal. *g*

I blame Te.

You're not the only one. *g*

Now go see X-men 2 NOW!

*sticks out tongue* Meanie! *sniffles* X-Men 2! PYRO!

*whispers*

Goooooo seeeeeeee the movieeeeeee.

Someone needs to write Iceman/Pyro all fucked up. Seriously.

After work tomororw, please God.

*hopeful* Let them have little for me to do so I can leave early.

*looks at happyminion*

You are ENJOYING the torturing far, far too much here.
