OT Post [Mar. 15th, 2005|07:17 pm]

[mood |hopefulhopeful]

Does anyone know who would like to take over some TS WIPs from me, or where I can post them up for grabs? I have had them for awhile, and doubt I can finish them myself. Thanks!

Please, just a little more magic [Jan. 14th, 2005|04:02 pm]

Title: The Illusionist (part of the dog tag series)
Author: Laura Jacquez Valentine
Email: jacquez at dementia.org
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Summary: Jim and Blair return to Cascade. This story will make no sense unless you read the earlier stories in this series (what a hardship)
Author's website: http://www.dementia.org/~jacquez/writing/senindex.html (please read disclaimer and distribution agreement)

I was ecstatic to see Laura had written a little more in the Dog Tag series. I love this series with an unreasoning passion, starting with A Sense of Who You Are. She's moved on to other fandoms, so even a little TS addition brings me joy. And while you're there, check out the Gone Native series. Also lovely.

Okay, now I'll stop.

Admin: The Return of The Prodigal Whatever [Jan. 6th, 2005|10:50 pm]

This post is to let everyone in this community know that I'm back. I have been for about for a little while, actually, and thought I'd be back sooner than that, but I've been avoiding checking this community, getting my bearings and allowing myself to play with on-line. It's nice to have it back.

I wanted to say thank you to all those who kept his community going in my absence. It's wonderful to see such dedication to a fandom that should, according to some, be dead by now.

For the moment, I'm going to ask that recs stop while I figure out what to do here. Whether or not a new team should be selected yet, or whether the people who have been offering recs should continue. I'll go through the past posts, as many as I can in the next few days, and see if I can organize them in the memories.

Any thoughts/suggestions/comments/accusations you wish to hurl at me will be welcome. I'm just grateful things have slowed down, that I once more have internet, and that I can return to enjoying the give and take of fandom.

*hugs you all*

Direct Link: http://www.squidge.org/archive/archive/episode2/rulesof.html
Author's Page: http://www.geekwriter.de/

Monday rec, Miracle of Light, from ozsaur [Jan. 3rd, 2005|04:37 am]
Title: Miracle of Light
Author: C.L. Finn

Direct Link: http://members.aol.com/clfinntoo/stories/miracle.htm
Author's Page: http://members.aol.com/clfinn5/cove.htm

Reason's for Recommending: I love stories that explore Blair's Jewish heritage. This one is both a Christmas and Chanukah story with a little sap and a dash of sweetness.

rec: French Talk, rom ozsaur [Dec. 27th, 2004|11:48 am]
Title: The French Talk Series
Author: CKC
Email: ceekaicee@yahoo.com
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Summary: Jim and Blair have a picnic and discover interesting uses for deli condiments.
Direct Link:
Le Dejeuner sur l'Herbe
Apres-midi d'un Faune
Le Sacre du Printemps

Author's Page: http://www.squidge.org/%7Etheforest/ckc/ckc.html

Reasons for Recommending: I highly recommend the first story on it's own. It's fairly light hearted and I found certain elements of the sex scene amusing. Others might not, and that's all the warning you will get. What I like about it is that it's not just a PWP, the guys figure out a lot of things besides the logistics of picnic sex. The next two stories get a bit darker and angstier, but still good.

Rec from ozsaur, False Tongues by Chaomath [Dec. 19th, 2004|10:54 am]
It's like prezzies, getting all these lovely recs!

Title: False Tongues
Author: Chaomath
Email: chaomath@hitthenail.com
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Summary: An innocent discussion of a current news topic skirts dangerous waters, pushing Blair to issue a challenge.
Direct Link: http://www.squidge.org/archive/archive/drama3/falsetongues.html
Author's Page: http://www.hitthenail.com/personal/chaomath/
Not a lot on her page, most of her stories can be found at 852 Prospect.

Reasons for Recommending: This story has one of those weird argument/discussions that guys get into. Blair defends his point with his usual energy, but Jim makes a few points of his own. Chaomath writes dialogue like normal speech patterns, she really gets their voices.

Monday rec, Glass Fish by Spyke [Dec. 13th, 2004|05:57 am]
Title: Glass Fish
Author: Spyke Raven
Email: spyke_raven@gatefiction.com
Rating: Mild R
Pairing: Jim/Blair pre-slash
Summary: Of details and glass fish and looking into the heart of things. Jim gets Blair a present.
Direct Link: http://spykeraven.gatefiction.com/glassfish.html
Author's Page: http://spykeraven.gatefiction.com/frameset.html

Reasons for Recommending: When a writer tells a story involving Jim's senses, they usually focus on sex. Spyke has a real talent for showing Jim's sensory experience under everyday circumstances and showing just how wonderful enhanced senses can be. And how awful. Some experiences are a little of both. Out of all her stories, I chose this one because of the vivid way she explores Jim's visual experience, how it really is possible to see too much with his eyes and not enough with his heart.

QuoteCollapse )

This is marvelous; Spyke was the first TS writer I found, before I'd even heard of the show. Coming across the senses cold, as it were, made this story a nearly hallucinogenic experience....

Middle Ground, rec from ozsaur [Dec. 7th, 2004|05:34 am]
Title: Middle Ground
Author: Maggie B.
Email: maggiebcc@aol.com
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jim/Blair
Summary: After Veronica's death, Jim finds it hard to get back to normal, especially since he doesn't want normal. Meanwhile, he tries to figure out why Sandburg keeps stealing the ball.
Direct Link: http://www.squidge.org/archive/archive/3/middleground.html
Author's Page: She doesn't appear to have a page but two of her Slash Virtual Season stories are posted at 852 Prospect.

Reasons for Recommending: The summary to this story doesn't explain much. Jim and Blair are at a crossroads, both on a personal level and as partners. They make mistakes, do dumb ass things, miss the clue bus and pretty much act the way real people do when they're trying to find a way forward with their lives. I love the scenes on the basketball court, and the ending is satisfying in every way.

Monday rec: The Good Friend, from ozsaur [Nov. 29th, 2004|06:34 am]
Title: The Good Friend
Author: Jack Reuben Darcy
Email: jack_3745@yahoo.com.au
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Jim/Blair, Blair/m
Summary: Jim suffers in silence as Blair's heart is broken
Direct Link: http://www.squidge.org/archive/archive/firsts2/goodfriend.html
Author's Page: http://internetdump.com/users/angiet/guest.html
NOTE: This webpage has some questionable pop-up ads. Also, not all of JRD's stories are on this webpage, more of his stories can be found at 852 Prospect.

Reason for Recommending: Make sure you have a big chunk of time set aside before you start reading this story, not just because it's long but because it's very intense. JRD's story Prison is recommended most often, but The Good Friend is totally on the money in the way he explores the characters. He peels away the layers of who Jim and Blair are. The author doesn't flinch from showing every aspect of their characters, the good points as well as the flaws. There is nothing tidy or neat about Jim and Blair's relationship, and JRD shows that in all its complexity. Prepare for the angst.
