One Fic:

the ruins we have built by [livejournal.com profile] juno_chan [ASoiAF; Jon Arryn/Lysa Tully, PG13]

Here I am with yet another fic I didn't know I wanted in my life until I read it. Jon and Lysa have such an unhappy marriage, and this is a wonderful take on all the issues underneath that -- that he is older than her father, that she is in love with someone else, that she suffers a string of tragic pregnancies -- all from Jon's POV. Beautifully done.

Name your five favorite historical fandoms

snip )


I was going to do that music meme that's going around, where you list your favorite songs based on an assigned letter, but then I realized they'd probably all be My Chemical Romance songs anyway, so.

All right. Off to finish my fest fics.

A few drive-by recs, while I wait for a fic to get back from beta.

Where You Run To, I'll Go Glistening by [personal profile] eternal_elenea Robb/Theon, R

This is a kink meme fill for a prompt about desperate/urgent sex and Theon getting off on rainstorms -- and it has all of that, UNF -- but it's also a story about these to growing up together and belonging to each other even though Theon doesn't quite belong. The prose here is just beautiful.

Faces and Names by [personal profile] lainemontgomery Ned/Cersei + Robert, R

I saw this when it was still at the kink meme -- in fact, it's probably the reason I ended up filling a Ned/Cersei prompt, because it was one of those pairing I didn't know I wanted until I read it. Then, I thought Oh. Of course. Cersei's POV is wonderful, and this has some deliciously wrong Ned/Robert undertones, in that you can't quite tell if Robert wants Ned for Ned, or if he's really just using him as a replacement for Lyanna.

waiting for you to hurt me by [personal profile] miranatural Robb/Theon, R [bloodkink]

This is another kink meme fill. I almost didn't read it, because bloodkink isn't really my thing, but the dynamic in the prompt was interesting -- that Theon isn't really into it, but Robb really, really is -- and this turned into a fantastically twisted look into Theon's headspace.

we keep you in our bones by [personal profile] honey_wheeler Jon/Jeyne W, Jon/Robb, Robb/Jeyne W, R

This is glorious. I ship these two pretty hard, in a picking up the pieces Robb left behind kind of way, and this is explores that perfectly, touches on all the ghosts in their bed, and when I was finished with this, all I could really do was wave my hands and say ♥JON♥ repeatedly.

Top 5 reunion scenes

my thoughts; let me show you them )

I finished the last four episodes of Game of Thrones last night, which was brilliant. I cried about Ned, but I knew I would, and I also cried when Sam & Co. brought Jon back to the Wall, and I knew I would there too, because I love Jon so much, and something about the Night's Watch vows always makes me shiver. Also, the guy playing Jeor Mormont is absolutely brilliant, just perfectly gruff. I'm more irritated than ever that I don't have HBO though, because I won't be able to watch season two as it airs, and the wait for the DVD release will feel endless, I'm sure.

Speaking of Game of Thrones, I was telling [personal profile] themostepotente last night that someone should write a ridiculous crossover where a bizarre Time-Turner incident dumps the Marauders in Westeros, mainly because I want some shameless Jon Snow/Sirius Black porn. It could also include James fighting with Robb Stark's army, and Peter having dinner with Littlefinger, and Remus hanging out at the Citadel while he tried to figure out how to get everyone home, but. Mostly, the Jon/Sirius porn.

There was fic last night:

The Sin in Your Grin (and the Shape of Your Mouth)
Sirius/Snape, Remus/Sirius, James/Sirius | NC17 | ~16,000 words
The Order needed Sirius, but he doubted they'd mourn him long when he finally disappeared.

This is the first war fic I've been trying to write pretty much since I joined fandom, with bonus points for Sirius/Snape fight!sex and one of the unhappiest Remus/Sirius dynamics I've ever put into print. I didn't do James any favors here, either.

Quickly, onto today's [livejournal.com profile] fannish5:

What are your five favourite sibling relationships?

wafflecut )

I watched The Return of the King last night, which I haven't done in over a year, I don't think. It's easily my favorite LotR movie, but I don't watch it very often, mainly because I have a headache before its over -- the scene where Perrin sings for Denethor always makes me cry, and I usually end up crying on and off through the rest of it. The part where Aragorn tells the Hobbits you bow to no one always kills me too.

Éowyn is still my favorite, as well as Frodo and Gandalf, and I still wanted Denethor to die in a fire long before he actually did, although... if there's one thing about the RotK movie that bothers me, it's the amount of Denethor's backstory that gets cut; it doesn't mention is depression after Finduilas died, or that a lot of his despicable behavior was the result of Sauron screwing with him through the Palantír.
