My favourite bands/artists: Lin-Manuel Miranda and the Hamilton cast
I've realized I love pairings with a tragic twist! Betrayals, leaving the other behind, one-sided love, one of the pair dying... it just makes it all the more fun to think/read about them finding happiness or overcoming their problems!
The plot bunny I absolutely LOVE: time travel. Any kind of time travel, be it on the character's own personal time line, going physically back in time, time travel of the Doctor Who -kind... I just love it.
My thoughts on River Song: As a character she is interesting and a contrast to the Doctor (for once he's not the only one deciding if and when he meets the other person). But she also seems to indulge his bad behavior. The idea of her character is interesting but for the first, what, twenty, twenty-five years she only heard stories of the Doctor. Then, after meeting him once, she dedicated her academic career to learning about him and his travels throughout history. Knowing someone and knowing about someone are two different things, otherwise every celebrity fangirl would be the "true love" of their obsession. Then there is the thing about their supposed love story. Are they only together because River told the Doctor his name in the Library? Because personally I think that was the deciding factor in the Doctor leaving Rose in Pete's World, because he "knew" there'd be no future for them. I mean, just before marrying River, the Doctor said he doesn't want to marry her. She just held the rest of the universe hostage until he did.
Fic recs in no particular order:
Judgment Calls by Stephensmat. Terminator fic. It starts at the end of T3 and spans all the way to the beginning of T1. Basically it's John Connor's journey to the leader of humanity and beyond. IMO, better than the movies, since it does world building and human nature very well. Complete.
Déjà vu no Jutsu by Vixen Tail. Naruto fic. SI/OC story that explains the reincarnation and deals with the trauma of dying, and moving on with actual therapy. Natsumi (OC) finds herself as the senpai to a tetchy little blond orphan, and the relationship is the turning point of her life. Starts pre-canon and ends around the beginning of canon. Complete.
Dreaming of Sunshine by Silver Queen. Naruto fic. The OG SI/OC story. Shikako Nara's life and times as part of lucky team 7, along with all the problems of being a genius. Honestly, if you have not read Dreaming of Sunshine and are in the Naruto fandom, you're missing out. I know I personally have a problem reading stories that are super hyped, but with DoS you just can't go wrong. WIP.
Conversations with a Cryptid by AMournfuHowlInTheNight on AO3. BNHA fic. Izuku thinks there's more to All For One that it seems on the surface and asks to interview him in Tartarus. You have to read it a second time to truly appreciate it, but definitely worth a read if you want a more world building read with less actual action, even if every chapter feels intense. Complete/WIP.
A Wolf among Warblers by Valdyr on AO3. Glee fic. As a child, Kurt was bitten by a werewolf. By high school, his control was excellent. Even Karofsky's kiss didn't break it. But then Dalton gets a new student, Sebastian Smythe, who might be the to most annoying meerkat in existence... Normally Klaine is my cup of tea, but I really didn't mourn Blaine by the end. WIP.
The War is Far From Over by NowDon'tCallMeCarrie on AO3. MCU fic. Tony accidentally takes over the world without even realizing. Poor dude was just so busy with everything else he didn't stop to think how his actions might look like on the outside. And JARVIS' Skynet is showing. After I first read it, I only remembered it for the way it included Stark Industries in the narrative as outsiders POV. Complete.
Robb Returns by The Dark Scribbler. ASoIaF and GoT fic. Robb wakes up in Winterfell... after the Red Wedding. And proceeds to worry his father... and Maester Luwin... and everyone else. The Old Gods are taking a much more proactive stance this go around and Magic Is Awake. This fic builds beautifully on the fantasy aspect of ASoIaF without taking away from the human element. WIP.
Love Pays No Indemnity by Jana on AO3. Hobbit and LotR fic. The Ring is not content to remain in the Shire and entices Bilbo to go on a "walking holiday" all the way to Mordor... only to be treated as a person for the first time in its existence. A tale of grass, rain, Middle-Earths geopolitics and the importance or names. And love, of course. The one with the weirdest concept, but Jana makes it work and I'm always delighted by a new chapter. WIP.
Dynasty by Valerie Vancollie and Rebecca Thomson. Star Wars fic. Luke is shot in the leg on the Death Star and left behind. Darth Vader takes an interest in the force sensitive young man, especially when he learns his name. This fic was written before Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith were released, so it's wildly AU. Complete.
The Sum of its Parts by Kouri Arashi. Teen Wolf fic. Is actually a fourteen part monster series, first of which is Coming Undone, the whole series can be found on AO3. After Stiles refuses Peter's bite, Peter forces Stiles into the trunk of his car before going to kill Kate Argent. The series is rather AU with elements of later seasons of TW, but it creates its own world with full shifts and hunter politics. Complete.
The Return and The Ascension by Sweet Inu Girl. Inuyasha fic. Kagome has returned to the Edo Period and Inuyasha has been waiting. World building. So much world building. I just hope Sweet Inu Girl writes a third part, because The Ascension kind of left things unfinished... Complete/WIP.
Rose Petal Red by NonchalantxFish. Harry Potter fic. SI/OC Lys, the eighth Weasley, takes over Slytherin while trying to protect her own and her family and friends' life, liberty and happiness. And this is another fic with more world building and politics. WIP.
