Taken from tumblr:

A tumblr specifically for recommending long fic has been set up at fuckyeahlongfic. It’s still very new, but we’re hopeful it’ll catch on. It’s a multi-fandom, any pairing blog, but to have a wide variety of fandoms and pairings, people need to know about the tumblr - we mods aren’t in *every* fandom, after all.

You browse by tags: fandom, pairing, rating, etc. Anything of 10,000+ words is acceptable; anything below that that is not.


I like this idea XD

FUN

Taken from [livejournal.com profile] honeybearbee :

"The Hypothetical AU Meme: Take any one of the fandoms you know I write AND give me a type of AU (space opera AU, pirate AU, superhero AU, etc) or another time period (Ancient Rome, Regency England, etc). I will then explain what story from that fandom I would AU in that era."
A little project [livejournal.com profile] lemonicees and [livejournal.com profile] ember_firedrake and I started via twitter, where Team Sheppard finds a device that allows them to change into animals. Basically an SGA/Animorphs fusion..thing.

Rodney seems perfectly suited to be an owl, as evinced by these pictures.

drabble ficlet; sga/animorphs
mcshep, established relationship.
sweet fluff, no redeeming qualities whatsoever. Blame Thanks go to my partners in crime. Dedicated to them, too :D (sorry [livejournal.com profile] lemonicees, I know this isn't your ship).


owl loving )
for [livejournal.com profile] rock_mafia , who wanted chubby!John. I couldn't see him gaining weight while acting as CO of Atlantis, while being on an offworld team. Too much exercise and stress. So this is a future ficlet, where John and Rodney are living together -- married -- on Atlantis. As grumpy, sort-of old men.

title: nature intended
rating: pg-13
fandom: sga
word count: 835
summary: It bothered Rodney that it bothered John. Didn’t John know Rodney would love him no matter what?

love, love, love )
I was thinking back on my entrance to fandom today. Specifically, how I was introduced to fanfiction. I'd always sort of daydreamed about certain shows and pairings, even when I was young. But it wasn't until a friend of mine linked me to this Princess Diaries fanfic she read and loved (I know, I know, I didn't bother reading, but it was how I discovered fanfiction), that I realized others daydreamed too, but took it one step further -- they wrote it out and posted.

So, dear friends/acquaintances/lurkers -- how did YOU find fanfiction?
You know what I want? I want a fic that has all the characters from all three Stargates. I want Jack and Daniel, Sam and Teal'c, John and Rodney, Teyla and Ronon and Carson and Radek. I want Eli and Matt and Chloe and Rush. I want to see Sam vs. Rush, and Eli being taken under Rodney's professional wing. I want Jack and John to bond, and Rodney to push all the soft science onto Daniel. I want them all on Atlantis, and I want the Destiny and the Deadalus and Apollo to be their ships to fight against the Wraith and Goa'uld. And they send Destiny out on a year-long mission to a research station in another galaxy.

John and Rodney fall in love. Eli gets the girl. And their lives are dangerous and terrifying and so far from perfect, but they all manage to find their happiness anyway, taking it whenever it comes and however it comes.

That's what I want.

I may have found my pseudo-NaNoWriMo idea, y/n?

The hardest part about this meme is finding the fics and then deciding which one to use for which. I keep finding fics I think are gorgeous, and this is making me want to start a random fic rec tag (which I think I will do). But first, fic meme!


Day 07 - A fic with a wonderful kiss


07. 39 Kisses series by Yin-Again (available as a podfic in .mp3 or audiobook)
+ Kiss me 39 times
+ Seventeen to eighteen
+ Twenty-three
+ All the rest have thirty-one
+ C-38
+ One for the team
+ 39+
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Length: 1,000+
McKay/Sheppard

Summary: Written for [livejournal.com profile] sheafrotherdon's Kissing Meme (which spawned a podfic anthology and a sequel). Haha, look at how many recs for kissing fics I managed to sneak in here (not to mention an awesome podfic to put on ipods to listen to wherever you go).

Bonus kiss:
+ Hard Candy by runpunkrun

Oops, forgot to do this two days in a row. Not that anybody is reading, which is okay~


Day 06 - A Guilty Pleasure Fic

 
06. What Might Have Been Series by Keira Marcos
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Length: Nearly 200,000 words
McKay/Sheppard

Summary: This is an alternate universe series in that Rodney McKay never went to Atlantis, the mission failed within it’s first two years and John Sheppard finds himself back on Earth as the second in command of Stargate Command under the leadership of Major General Jack O’Neill.

Reasons: All of Keira's work is a guilty pleasure for me, since some people complain that her characterizations are always OOC (so I just go "whatever" and don't talk how much I love them). I think that's an exaggeration: John and Rodney are recognizable, but Keira adds an element of "badass" to both of them that makes me love them all the more. When I'm in the mood for badass!John or badass!Rodney, Keira is who I go to. Add in her AMAZING OC's (I will forever wish that Patrick, David, and Matt Sheppard were canon) as well as her original plots, and fics are a pleasure to read.

Day 05 - A fic you weren't sure you'd like but ended up loving
 

05. Indelible by [livejournal.com profile] shaenie 
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Length: "Oh my god" long
McKay/Sheppard

Summary:
John has a useful gift for compartmentalization: he discards the irrelevant and moves on. Then Rodney makes an ill-considered move on a mission, John steps up to take responsibility for making reparations to the locals, and things take a turn for the complicated as Rodney, an alien society, and an armada of ships make standard operating procedure completely impossible.

Reasons: If you have not read this fic but are even remotely familiar with the SGA fandom read this fic now. I just can't put into words how amazing it is. It's my #1 favorite fics ever, regardless of fandom. I wasn't sure I'd like it because of a scene where a character is spanked as punishment (which I hurried through) as well as the UST, but I've never regretted reading. [livejournal.com profile] shaenie introduces a great OC character and Lorne gets a large, inclusive role in the fic. This means that Teyla and Ronon take a more background role, but they're still felt in the fic and have some truly wonderful scenes. This isn't one of those fics that have plots that have been done many times (something difficult to avoid in a fandom as large as SGA, and that wasn't a put down to those fics -- on the contrary, I love them), but a fic with two original concepts and an amazingly well-written execution.

Funnily enough, it would have been easier to choose a fic that I wish less people would read.


Day 04 - A fic that you wish more people would read


04. Personal Hero by Mrs. Hamill
Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis
Length: 7660
McKay/Sheppard

Excerpt:
When noise faded in again, it was Teyla speaking, very softly. In the background, John could hear Rodney's voice bitching and complaining. "...I have never seen him like that, so focused."

"I have." That was Elizabeth. John frowned but couldn't muster the strength to open his eyes. "When he came back from Ford's world, overdosed on Wraith enzyme." Elizabeth made a sound that was mid-way between a chuckle and a sigh. "A core of steel under a mound of bitter marshmallow, that's our Rodney."

If John could have laughed, he would have. Yeah, that described McKay pretty damn well.

{~*~}
 
Reasons: Mrs. Hamill is famous for her Slouching Toward Bethlehem series as well as her Raising Madison series. I have yet to find anybody mention her other stuff, though I'm sure I'm not the only one that loves it. Personal Hero is a favorite of mine because it gives Rodney a chance to shine in a way that isn't dependent on his brain. He gets to prove that not only is he intelligent, but if necessary he can perform physically under pressure, which is a nice change. Mrs Hamill's characterizations are wonderful and her writing style is engaging, and if I want a quick satisfying read this is the fic I turn to.

I'm running in to a problem where I can't remember what my favorite fics are from previous fandoms :(


Day 03 - A long-standing favorite fic


03. Face Value by minnow
Fandom:
Stargate: Atlantis
Length: 18k
McKay/Sheppard

Excerpt:
"Yes, I think one telepath per Atlantis is enough," Elizabeth said. One too many, she murmured internally.

"Indeed, since we haven't ruled out negative side effects," Carson said.

"Exactly," Rodney said. "We haven't ruled out the device's brain-exploding properties yet, so I think we'll all keep our hands clear, all right, Colonel? And speaking of brain-exploding possibilities, you all could stand to be a little more concerned, you know, and I would like my brain scanned now."

Day 02 - A favorite new fic (posted in the last few weeks)

02. The Spirit and the Letter by lightgetsin
Fandom: Dresden Files (Book 'Verse)
Length: 20k
Marcone/Dresden

Excerpt:

"Oh," Bob said, rolling his eyelights. "Jeez, Dresden, what's your problem? So you have tits for four days. Suck it up and be a man. You might even enjoy it," he added, somehow managing to leer with his voice.

I folded my arms. "I don't know if I can." Everything still hurt, reverberating with the aftershocks of the transformation spell. And my nerves were already shot after just an hour. The sense of being on the brink was overpowering. I was afraid every time I opened my mouth that I might start shrieking and not stop.

"Look, I really think it's a bad idea," Bob said. "And do you want to go pissing her off even more?"

Okay, that was actually a good point. I slumped forward, then sat up fast when . . . things shifted and jiggled. "Okay," I said, trying to talk myself down. "It's okay. I can just – I can – okay, no. Maybe I'll just take sleeping potions for the next four days."

"You can't," Bob said helpfully. "You have to go to that negotiation thing day after tomorrow."

I smacked my forehead. It's a sad state of affairs when your talking skull becomes your social secretary. The signatories to the Unseelie Accords were conferencing, and I had to show up and be decorative. Hell's bells, everyone would be there.

"Hey, I just realized!" Bob said. "You're like a country song: you lost your house, you lost your car, you lost your job, and now you've lost your dick!"
