Rec: Dandy in the Underworld, by [livejournal.com profile] dear_tiger: An excellent, beautifully written casefile from an OC’s POV. There’s a dragon in the desert outside Las Vegas who grants wishes … if you survive three nights. Nonexplicit Sam/Dean, and I don’t want to say that’s not central, though [spoilers redacted].

Revenge: when did the building fall down? )

for [livejournal.com profile] lanalucy: Any fandom: She never thought she'd see *him* again, so she certainly never considered that the next time she saw him, he'd be naked.

fancy meeting you here )

I need an Emily & Nolan icon!

for [personal profile] wendelah1: Olivia & Astrid friendship fic. I loved the dynamic between them before Peter showed up in season four.

BFFs )


... and for [personal profile] vivien: Lex Luthor in the Hamptons - Smallville/Revenge crossover

level up )


... and for [personal profile] angryfurball: Damon/Elena; "Damon is either the best thing for her, or the worst." Note: um, this doesn’t have any Damon/Elena interaction? But it is all about that, so. Damon Salvatore & Bonnie Bennett, bestest enemies.

divided vote )

for [livejournal.com profile] daria234: Revenge, character's favorite myth.

Nolan likes the tricksters )


... and for [personal profile] wendelah1: How about fix-it fic for Fringe 4.4, "The Bullet that Saved the World"?

it as if you have saved the whole world )


... and for [personal profile] alexseanchai: Supernatural, dealer's choice of character(s):
This is the moment when the gods expect me to beg for help
But I won't even try
I want nothing in this world but myself to protect me
But I won't lie down, roll over, and die

Jo has questions )


... and for [personal profile] kinetikatrue: Okay, because Real Genius didn't make it into Yuletide, a prompt for it -- how about 'Chris Knight is secretly Tony Stark's son'? (Note that the timing means that Tony Stark has to be a fair bit older than Chris Knight; the setting is basic Real Genius eightiesish.)

Mitch approached Chris with the care he'd ordinarily devote to positioning a laser )
for [livejournal.com profile] daria234: Revenge!! How about Victoria and Emily have to work together for a common goal? (Like they actually have a common goal, not just Emily pretending.).

enemy of my enemy )


for [personal profile] ariadnes_string: Alphas--canon Jewish characters doing Jewish things. Particularly acts of remembrance, maybe, since I was thrilled beyond reason to see a Jewish funeral represented on the show. But happy stuff is good, too. Dr. Rosen is my favorite (of course).

kaddish )


for [personal profile] giandujakiss: Revenge - Nolan and Emily, BFFs! And/or, having finished with Emily's Revenge, go on the road doing long cons on the 1%. Either one, or both!

You owe me, Ems )


... and

for [personal profile] kass: Fringe, the Bishop family (any definition thereof), waffles

Walter has discovered molecular gastronomy )


... I may actually finish on time this year!
for [personal profile] turnonmyheels, two prompts: Nolan Ross and Charles Bartowski lived across the hall from each other at Stanford, combined with Sarah/Chuck/Casey. Note: I’m basically ignoring Chuck S5, because I can; also, Revenge barely appears in here at all.  PG-13.

Chuck versus the Unreliable Source )
[personal profile] giandujakiss has a Revenge vid!  An overview of the first season. As the Softer World cartoon has it, “They say when you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves. They underestimate me.”

Do not take a car title loan; you are likely to lose the car.

This review of the Chromebox/Chromebook got me slightly interested and might be of interest to those looking for a cheap computer, even though I haven’t been able to log in to my pro account on Chrome in weeks and have been reduced to using IE to blog because of Chrome’s infinite redirect loop when I try to log in. (Yes, I have cleared my cache and restarted my computer. There may be more that I could do, but the fact that I have to do it is indictment enough in my opinion.)
Jemison, Robinson, Barnes )
Still working on these:
for [personal profile] turnonmyheels: TVD, Alaric/Damon or Damon & Alaric, R for sexual references.

buddy caper )

for [personal profile] intothespin: Nolan Ross/Tony Stark. Mergers & acquisitions. Or drunken hookups at cocktail parties, whichever is easier.

bit of both? )
Thanks for the menorah, [personal profile] meret!

Also, thanks so much to everyone who works on the AO3, including Systems, Tag Wranglers, Support, ADT and the rest of the crew, as well as to the Yuletide mods. For Yuletide, I’m the proud recipient of one of the few extant Tower Prep stories, Any Given Tuesday, which has our heroes trying to figure out one of the more mundane mysteries of Tower Prep.

Then, for Yuletide Madness, I got Thick as Thieves, an Alphas story showing the delicate negotiations between Nina, Cameron and Rachel, and Undercover Alpha, in which Gary from Alphas wakes up at Tower Prep and reacts exactly as you think he would.

Other recs: surfing the Revenge tag (now I know my first subscription when the fandom subscription feeds roll out on AO3!):

Living by Antecedents, by vegarin: As gen as it can get, Nolan-centric but with interesting Amanda (she’s always Amanda to Nolan) and great Jack

First and Last, by anonymous: Nolan and Amanda backstory.

Nolan Ross’ Bedtime Stories, by anonymous: Nolan retells the story in classic fairytale terms. It works!

Other recs:

Elementary Murder Mystery Analysis, by anonymous. Community: The voices are excellent.

Semaphore, by [personal profile] devildoll. Avengers etc., Tony/Steve. Full of witty asides and ridiculous concepts that just work, like Cupcake Avalanche. Excerpt:
"Not at all,” Tony says. As painful as this conversation is, it almost feels good to get it out in the open. “Look, I already had one person I was pining after who wouldn’t sleep with me, and I didn't really have the time to fit in another one, so I had to cut you loose. It's nothing personal, it was just a time management issue." …

Steve looks over his shoulder at the busted remains of the Hot Topic door, then turns back toward Tony. "You really wanted...?"

"Yes," Tony repeats, this time a little grumpily. God, this is torture. It's like he keeps ripping off the band-aid only to find another band-aid.

And finally, some non-fic notes:

Bob Dole and my favorite joke form: An apocryphal Washington exchange. Gingrich: “Why do people take such an instant dislike to me?” Dole: “Because it saves them time.”

Abigail Nussbaum on Homeland (so very spoilery but great analysis if you’ve seen it). Nussbaum is Mikey from that commercial: she likes it (mostly)! She doesn’t like anything!
for [personal profile] giandujakiss: TVD, Bonnie/Damon. Where Bonnie is awesome. (Author’s note: my reaction was, “That’s easy. Is Bonnie in the story? There, done.”) Warning: Blood exchange.

in which Bonnie has an idea, and Damon. )



for [personal profile] alexseanchai: Supernatural. Female Jewish hunter, first encounter with demons.

Maiden run )



for [personal profile] serrico, Revenge: Emily understands that part of the reason Nolan keeps pushing Jack at her is because Nolan knows he can't have Jack himself. It's a little awkward, but Emily's good at dealing with awkward things. PG-13 for language.

Emily's a dish, served cold. )
1. For [personal profile] mareen: Revenge: Nolan joins Jack and a couple of rich kids on a trip of the Amanda. They end up stranded on an island. Nolan is the least annoying of the bunch, to Jack's suprise. Could be the Rum though. Note: all sailing-related stuff is purely made up. Sorry!

To Have and Have Not, PG-13 )

2. For [livejournal.com profile] margueritem: Fringe, Astrid kicking ass. ♥  G.

Walter and Mulder sound a lot alike, don't they? )

3. For [personal profile] jakrar: What-If Fic, Smallville: After Clark destroys the spaceship at the end of season two, he flees the scene to steal the red-K ring in Chloe’s desk. Clark decides that if he’s leaving Smallville for better surroundings, he wants some entertaining company, and that (perhaps more importantly) he isn’t about to lose someone like Lex Luthor to some undeserving interloper like Helen Bryce. PG-13.
