I wonder if I'll be able to sleep at all before the election is over. I wonder how much of my anxiety and wiggy, avoidant behavior over the last couple months has been an effort not to think about the election.

Someone distract me, please.

Err. That's truly different! Hee. Thanks, hon.

Re: fic: Yeah, Jossverse! Rec me some Jossverse fic, baby! It really is my first love, fandomwise. Or rather, my greatest love, since we both know that chronologically speaking, it's Trek.

I think my torrid love affair with SG can't possibly be as long lasting as my Jossverse fixation. If only because the characters tend to lack the complexity and depth. I'm not sure I could in good conscience recommend Stargate to you, knowing your likes and dislikes. The main things seems to be, as Nikki has pointed out, SG-1 wears BDUs, black t-shirts and combat boots a lot, so I'm probably just having a Pavlovian response to the way our friends all dressed back in our more promiscuous days :)

Slash? Het? Angst? Plotty? PWP? Character preferences?

Equally fond of slash and het (extra points for femmeslash, if you can find any that's good!). Plot, PWP, don't care. Angst is OK, although I am a delicate flower so, like, final character death upsets me. I love every single character The Man has ever created. Honestly, no preference. I would just be tremendously grateful for links to whatever *you* have enjoyed the most. You r0x0r in advance :)

In no particular order...(non fanfic people, avert your eyes. no really. don't look. promise?)
Avalanche of longish recs:

1. Relatively lighthearted Spuffy, some in canon, some AU: http://www.nautibitz.com/fic_sb.html

2. Plotty, melodramatic Spuffy and Spike historical fic: http://www.echonyc.com/~stax/Buffy/herself/index.htm

3. S/X (sort of) with entertaining original character: http://www.echonyc.com/~stax/Buffy/kalima/nicolettesays.htm

4. Silly Angel/Spike schmoopy parody: http://www.ficbitch.com/daysofourunlives/

5. Angel/Spike/Wesley (er, PWP): http://ficbitch.com/slashingtheangel/happybirthdaywesley.html

6. Plotty Angel/Wes slash fics by TheBratQueen: http://countylimerick.prohosting.com/fanfiction/buffy/

7. Anything by lj user Stakebait: http://www.adamao.org/mer/contents.html#pairing

8. Anna S's Buffy Season Noir: http://www.drizzle.com/~eliade/demon_noir.html

9. AtS No Limits (a virtual Angel season 6, being written by a group of authors I admire): http://www.livejournal.com/community/ats_nolimits/

10. Giles, Spike, Anya stories with plot and close to no smut: http://www.myarseisnotpansy.co.uk/lori/index.html

11. Long running, smutty rewrite of the movie Secretary, except with Wes and Faith in the parts: http://www.janedavitt.com/Sec1.html

I'm not very good at femslash (I'll bet you aren't suprised by this), but Jennifer Oksana (http://jennyo.imjustsayin.net/index2.html) produces some that I think is good (also a lot of Wes/Lilah), and eterniata.com has high quality fic indexed by character, with femslash included.

I suspect you or Nikki are a better source for firefly than I am. (FWIW I'm stuck on Mal/Simon, which doesn't happen nearly often enough.) :)

*cough*

That was more or less off the top of my head. Can you tell I've spent a lot of time away from my husband lately?

*cough*

Mal/Simon
Maybe it's the people I hang out with - I thought FF fandom was 90% M/S!

BTW, do you mind if I steal some of these recs for CrackVan? I'm reccing Angel there this month, and am sorely delinquent. (I've already recced a Stakebait story.)

I second, third and fourth the JennyO recs. Especially, read "Se7en", which I recced over in Crack Van this weekend.

Re: Mal/Simon
For slash, I see a lot more Simon/Jayne. And overall, there's a lot of canon het...

Re: Mal/Simon
Feel free to steal my recs, but check them out, first to make sure you lke them. ;)

*dancedancedance!* Thank you, sweetie! Now I need not pay attention to work, housework, politics or anything else for at least 48 hours!

Oh, and did someone say Mal/Simon? (the following is, in my opinion, SFW as it is less explicit by far than many icons I've seen, but YMMV):
http://www.tenebris.org/x__art/firefly_living.html

An *amazing* fanartist, who generally prefers not to have her work linked around. But so few fangirls read this journal that I feel safe showing it to you. And I certainly owe you something in exchange for all the recs! Thank you a thousand times!

(And, you know? Nobody is very good with the femslash. That's cause there isn't much. One of these days I'm gonna sit down and fix that by writing at least one steamy story in every one of my fandoms. But not today.)

Nobody is very good with the femslash.

I find it difficult to read femslash; representations of women in fiction are often very problematic for me. I find myself overly sensitive to the objectification of female characters in fanfic, even though I'm perfectly willing to overlook/enjoy male characters who are treated as objects. Oh well.

If you write femslash in the Jossverse, I'll be happy to read it.

To be fair, it's great episodic SF TV, and has more emotional continuity than a lot of that sort of show. And the plots are frequently interesting and great - they've just chosen to make plot and action more important than character arcage.

And also, you gotta give them props for being completely anti-religion.

Totally. And even having a loathsome "Religious Right" type of Senator as a recurring villain.

True. And you know I have a lot of affection for it. I'm just irked lately at the lack of interpersonal drama there could be. But it does look like Season 8 is getting better with it. That last scene in Endgame in the gateroom packed a *huge* amount of emotion into a moment of silence...

Oh, yes. And heck, there's going to be all kinds of Sam emotional stuff in the next half. And Daniel ascension angst. And Jack hating-his-job angst.
