longlivehumour: (the thick of it)
[personal profile] longlivehumour posting in [community profile] gensplosion
FANDOM: The Thick of It
FIC LINK: Uncertain Sideways Streets
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] grenadine
RATING/WARNING(S): T | liberal use of the letter f; spoilers for Spinners and Losers and the beginning of Season 4
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 6,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Nicola Murray, Malcolm Tucker, (Ollie Reeder, Glen Cullen, Julius Nicholson)

FIC SUMMARY: During the election, Nicola Murray hits a wall.

RECCER'S NOTES: Politics fic! Nicola gets a rare chance to shine here, because for all her many (many, many many) flaws, she was one of the few ideologically honest people in DoSAC. And her voice is brilliant, and the dialogue is brilliant, and the characterisation is brilliant, and of all the fics I want to write on my skin until they can be absorbed as a permanent part of my system, this one's damn well near the top of the list.

And when you're done with that, head to Close Your Eyes and Think of Agincourt, by the same author and set prior to Uncertain.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Fox Mulder

FIC SUMMARY: The public is wonderfully tolerant. It forgives everything except genius. ~ Oscar Wilde

RECCER'S NOTES: A profiler!Mulder story told from the point of view of one of the detectives assigned on the same case as he observes his colleagues' reactions to the famous Spooky Mulder. An enjoyable little one-shot with fine narrative voice and some memorable lines. (Detective Carr shows up in a sequel story, Mileage, featuring Scully as the Coolest Lecturer Ever.)

MAIN CHARACTERS: Roy Mustang, Edward Elric

FIC SUMMARY: Stranded in the middle of the Eastern Desert, Roy Mustang must try to get himself and a concussed Edward across it safely before he completely loses his mind.

RECCER'S NOTES: OH GOD THIS FIC. Told from the perspective of an increasingly-unbalanced Roy Mustang, this is a superb story. Though the subject matter is grim, the dialogue is sprinkled with humour - Ed and Roy's acerbic relationship is a joy to read - and it never falls into the trap of navel-gazing that plagues so many fanfics. Mustang is a complex character who's done some truly horrible things, and this story has no qualms in showing that. If it has one flaw it's the proofreading, which left out a number of homophone mistakes, but the rest of the writing is fantastic: vivid and to the point. The story structure keeps the suspense right up till the end.
"Evil, evil thing, to make someone want revenge."

MCU / Thor: Road to Nowhere, by Lise

longlivehumour: Grey heron (heron)
[personal profile] longlivehumour posting in [community profile] gensplosion
FANDOM: MCU / Thor
FIC LINK: Road to Nowhere
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] Lise
RATING/WARNING(S): PG | spoilers for Thor: The Dark World
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 27,700
MAIN CHARACTERS: Loki, Thor, Frigga

FIC SUMMARY: When Loki turns up demanding Thor's help on a quest to retrieve the All-Mother from Valhalla, Thor isn't about to say no. But that doesn't mean he's forgotten anything, and what better time than a road trip through the backwaters of the universe for trying to talk things out?

RECCER'S NOTES: Loki and Thor are both very well written - Loki a genuinely twisty bitter bastard, albeit one who loves his mum, and Thor rather more intelligent than many people give him credit for, especially when it comes to his brother. The worlds they pass through are sometimes harmless, often horrifying, and always weird. Hopping across worlds like stepping stones on the way to Hel, and there is, as always in these stories, a catch...

FIC SUMMARY: Elizabeth and Will tried domesticity. They got bored.

RECCER'S NOTES: Because I can't be the only one sceptical that Elizabeth Swan would give up piracy that easily. A post-Curse of the Black Pearl AU - quick, funny, and will leave a warm feeling in your belly.

RATING/WARNING(S): G | spoilers up to and including S02E05

MAIN CHARACTERS: Alec Hardy, Ellie Miller MILLARRRR, and Fred

FIC SUMMARY: There are many puzzles in Alec Hardy's life, but maybe there's still room for one more.

RECCER'S NOTES: A short scene in the lives of two sad ex-detectives that captures their friendship rather well and still makes you smile. Also: Hardy and Fred.

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!

This Friday editorial is fun, plain and simple. The staff of The Week compiled 14 wonderful words with no English equivalent, and the headline is entirely accurate.

For all that James Nicoll's joke is true—English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary—there are still so many concepts we don't have words for in English. Sometimes these are locally influenced, such as distinct terms for snow in Inuktitut or for sweet potatoes in Hawaiian, but other times there are new ways of looking at life that other languages bring to the fore by naming them. How many of these words do you want to kidnap? )

longlivehumour: Kryten looks down at (and also on) Rimmer. (red dwarf)
[personal profile] longlivehumour posting in [community profile] gensplosion
FANDOM: Red Dwarf
FIC LINK: Ode to Enlightenment
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] jazzfic
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 2,000
MAIN CHARACTERS: Arnold Rimmer, Dave Lister

FIC SUMMARY: Rimmer's whole life, from what Lister had managed to glean from various drunken confessionals, was one missed opportunity after another.

RECCER'S NOTES: Pitch-perfect voices, down to Rimmer's horrific attempts at writing. A small scene in a storage locker.

And while I'm at it, here's another 'Enlightenment' fic. )
longlivehumour: Roses are red / antiplastic is blue / bananas are fantastic / and so are you (ninth doctor)
[personal profile] longlivehumour posting in [community profile] gensplosion
FANDOM: Doctor Who
FIC LINK: No Company for Old Men
AUTHOR LINK: Cryptile
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 7,300
MAIN CHARACTERS: Ninth Doctor, the Brigadier

FIC SUMMARY: "Who are you and what did you do with the Brigadier?"

RECCER'S NOTES: What did the Doctor get up to in those ten seconds at the end of "Rose"? Turns out he buggered off to see the Brigadier, and more or less refused to go away. Reasons to read this: 1. It's Nine and the Brig; 2. it's by Cryptile. Dialogue sharp as knives. The Brigadier's voice is delightful, his reaction to the intruder memorable, and the brittle wrongness of this new Doctor as the Brig watches him about the place sticks in my throat and burns.

Consider this an author rec, too, because every fic on Cryptile's profile is fantastic, with that balanced DW blend of drama and comedy and absolutely impeccable characterisation. One of the very best.
