mood: fannish

Hobbit spam! Screenshots from the trilogy: all Hobbits, all the time. Great captions cracked me up, but the pictures made me all nostalgic.

I'm reading a very satisfying Dom/Billy WIP Boston by eff_reality. And I don't just say that because I suggested the name. It's Billy the film history graduate student, and Dom, the mostly-cheerful prostitute, but it plays with the conventions and there are missed connections and it avoids a lot of romantic clichés.

First it was the Leaving Albuquerque AU by chaosmanor. A futurefic about the Fall Out Boys with grit, a lot of fabulous dialog, an MtF sex change, and a Grand Romance.

And now it's But Not the Song, which is a looong AU series about a universe in which pretty much every member of the FBR-type bands is either starting out as a slave or helping slaves escape. There is angst! and adventure! and cages! and music! and comradeship! and snarky banter! and love beyond words! It's really well-written and twisty-chesty sometimes and what can I say? It's become my fanon and I sometimes forget there are actual people by those names. So, not exactly bandfic, because AU?

Also, I'm sorry that the feed msil_fanfic_rec (LJ) and msil_delicious (IJ) kinda went crazy, and started sending out tag links, alphabetically. It's del.icio.us, and I don't know how to keep it from happening again :-(

/o\ Tu quoque???

Though hey, it's not like I'm going to complain since if you start reading bandfic, even just AUs and all, you're more likely to rec them which is all win for me. ;-)

Also, for the first time in years I just opened that lotrips link to read later. You just made me want to. \o/

Moi aussi! Heh, we can inspire each other. I've tasting a bit of bandfic but most of it isn't for me. Anything I read eagerly I'm going to rec!

Wait, what? You're reading bandom fic? How did I miss this? As it is, I can't quite get this grin off my face.

Well, only in times of Lotrips-drought. I'm not exactly in the fandom (I've no clue who is in your icon), but AUs with good stories seem to work for me.

Ah OK. I know who he is in the story, just not in RL. Such as it is :-)

My eyes just went like this: O_O

I'm glad you like the salve fic! I am so addicted, it's a little embarrassing.

Only a few more chapters on the slave fic, which is more free fic these days, and they are all trying so damn hard and they have imperfect sex and I totally love it.
