Flesh Mechanic: A high-concept, well-executed *NSYNC story, which you should read even if you don't usually read RPF, because (a) it probably won't offend your sensibilities, and (b) the design and lay-out are very clever, and worth taking a look at, much in the same way as Wisteria's Happiness, even though in content and style they are very different.


Take This Longing: An Angel/Wes story with a dark difference. A WIP, very NC-17, very...uh. Well, the splash page will give you all the warnings you need. This will quite possibly melt my brain. In fact, like Scorpy, I think I need one of those coolant rods in my head, please. Dear god. This is the razor's edge of kink. I love it madly.


Breaking Old Ground: I think that's the title. It's the title of the page, anyway. Many of the in-jokes flew over my head, I'm sure, and the, er, "character" generalizations are probably grossly inaccurate, but it still amused me quite a lot.


And--googled after a list-sib forwarded it to our attention today--Terminators of Endearment, aka Pride and Extreme Prejudice, i.e., The Terminator rendered in the style of Jane Austen.

In other story news, I've finally caved and signed up for the BtVS Flashfic-athon that marguerite_26 is organizing. It seems like fun, something to distract myself between punishing bouts of serial fiction. Today's nanofiction challenge also appeals to me. Maybe I'll write something later.

Fiction, popping up like tulips from the winter soil.

Thank you so much for bringing Terminators of Endearment to my attention. I hold the movies as two of the greatest pleasures of my youth, and to read a story written as the Great Austen would have told it is a gift indeed! Also incredibly giggle inducing, heh.

Hi, I'm probably breaking 1001 fandom rules by doing this (just where *are* those damn things listed anyway?), but I'm nonetheless here to offer a big ol' thank you for rec'ing Take This Longing and in such a sexy way too :-). Wesleysgirl and I are having a ball writing it together, and it's really bloody gratifying to see that people are getting off on it enjoying our fine literature.
