Yeay, verily I say unto you that this journal shall be devoted to recs and fannish things. Perchance it will be abandoned before the season is out, yet what the future brings I cannot say.

Firstly, be it known that fanart is awesome. I care not if it be gen, het, or slash, for I love with equal fervor the vibrant colors of HP oil paintings and the photoshopped magnificence of Arthur/Merlin. Thus, I give unto you examples new and old from an assortment of fandoms:

Merlin
On His Majesty's Secret Service by [livejournal.com profile] lizardspots. Merlin & Arthur AU.
Merlin/Arthur Modern AU by [livejournal.com profile] trolleys
One and Of the Earth by [personal profile] newkidfan. Merlin & Arthur manips and icons.
Gwen/Morgana art by [livejournal.com profile] pentapus (and Temeraire art and due South art)

Harry Potter
a Remus/Sirius painting and another Remus/Sirius painting by [livejournal.com profile] celestialsoda

And now, the news from Delicious: I have over a hundred bookmarks tagged "new", none of which I've recced since I got a delicious account and changed fandoms a few times. Herein I try to remember why I saved them:

Deriving the Prime by Rageprufrock. The only House fic I've ever read, and it's a graphic threesome. I probably didn't rec this before because it's very NC-17, but like all good threesome stories, it's got interesting character dynamics.

HP fanart: Which one, sir?. Sirius and Remus.

SGA
The Pegasus Tinies: A Dreadful Abecedarium, with Selected Illustrations. argosy and kiden. SGA fanart.
The Angriest John in the World. Speranza. fanart. I might have mentioned this one before.
The Prince of Atlantis by prudentia. Written By The Victors fanart done in the style of a stained-glass window.
The Physics of Flying by steammmpunk. Wings and excellent highlights!
Downtime by crysothemis. John/Rodney watercolor.
You Only Ever Lose One by Thigh Holster. The John/Rodney sock AU.

due South. Mostly Fraser/Kowalski

Mixing by Slidellra. The archivist from "The Ladies' Man" puts in an appearance (something she should do more often).
Sliding by Sage. Post-COTW tentfic.
The Box by Salieri. Short and excellent.

Real Worlds by Salieri, with accompanying Space!Mountie recruitment posters. A sequel to Real Boys, the Blade Runner/cyberpunk AU. So, I have linked to Real Boys before, but I neglected to mention that a) it is awesome and b) it provides a satisfactory answer to the question my father asked when he and I were discussing Fraser's characterization in the series. My father said that the way Fraser was introduced in the pilot suggests that he had simply popped into existence the moment his father was murdered. Why, he asked, did Fraser move into his father's cabin? Did he not have a place to live already? "He is inscrutable" was my father's conclusion. (Meanwhile, my aunt thought that Fraser was not so much inscrutable as wooden and boring and that Paul Gross's performance was uninspiring. She thinks this about every Paul Gross role that is not Geoffrey Tennant.)

What I've been reading:

The Best Part of Breaking Up. Barbie slash. Character development takes into account the fact that everyone in this story is an anatomically incorrect doll.

Missed the Saturday Dance by Zoetrope. Multimedia SGA WWII Sheppard/McKay AU presented as an archive of found objects. The graphics are excellent, the video and audio "trailers" are awesome, and the text is pretty good. The plot of the story didn't quite live up to the drama promised by the trailers, but that's showbiz, I guess.

Close Encounters by [livejournal.com profile] amireal, and its sequel, All Brand New by [livejournal.com profile] seperis. SGA. Sheppard/McKay fluff.

Twenty-four Hours with a Rodneysaur. SGA gen crackfic.

Broadcast Signal by [livejournal.com profile] seperis. SGA Sheppard/McKay crackporn.

I would like to find more McKay/Zelenka, but at this point, every time I look at a fic, I spoil myself for season 3. So I started reading the King James version of the Bible instead. Better than crackfic, in a way--rainbows, talking donkeys, and spontaneous human combustion. Did you know that God is actually a unicorn, and that he will gore you to death with his unicorn's horn? I wonder if that's a mistranslation.

Who needs cable when you have roommates? For months now we have entertained each other with the Saga of the Unwashed Dishes.

Meanwhile, I'm reading fanfic for fandoms I know nothing about. Intersections (SGA) by Kaneko was so good that I had to read another story by the same author: What We Don't Know (popslash).
