This is actually a rec for the whole series this story is the first one of; so far it's about 20k words, each story of which is self-contained.  They are AWESOME.  Poignant, hilarious, well-characterized, matter-of-fact, trans-positive, neurodivergent-positive, Jewish-symbolism-not-Christian-as-Siegel-and-Shuster-would-have-wanted, and sweet without being saccharine.  I hope the author keeps writing these because they are LOVELY.

Ivan always looked like an actor playing a model cadet in a training vid. This impressed the hell out of Kostolitz when Miles first introduced them, but he'd since amended the comparison to 'an actor in a training vid, who's perpetually on a break between shoots, and is eager to get back to a party – to which common folk are not invited -- going on in his trailer.'
Miles looked like, well, Miles. That had taken some getting used to with the way Kostolitz had been raised. But Miles strategized like he was two meters tall and plasma-arc proof, and that fit Kostolitz's idea of a Barrayaran officer just fine.

And four other perspectives

beatrice_otter: Superman--red cape (Superman Cape)
If you love comics or history, this is a fascinating look at DC and Marvel's history and how the two companies are different (and how they relate to one another.)

Last week, I dug in a little into the idea that even though they share prominent creators and have influenced each other back and forth over the course of the last 50 years, the DC and Marvel Universes have some fundamental differences in the way they’re structured. One of the things I really wanted to get across in that column was that neither one is really fundamentally better than the other, they’re just incompatible in a lot of ways, and I touched on how that results in something I call The Problem. Since that’s still pretty fresh in everybody’s mind, and since you were nice enough to set the ball right on the tee and hand me the bat, I might as well elaborate on that now. It’s actually pretty simple. To put it bluntly, The Problem is that DC wants to be Marvel, and they have for the past 50 years.

I'm feeling the need to write something different. You know what that means; fic prompt time. So. Anyone who wants me to write them a fic, comment here. Fics will be at least 500 words long. Each person should make at least two requests, of which I will write one. Each request should contain one or more characters from the list below and a short prompt (theme, quote, etc). ONE request may be for a sequel/timestamp/missing scene/etc. from a fic I have already written. (For instance, I would not be averse at all to writing something more in the universe where Maria von Trapp from the Sound of Music was a Potential.) Crossovers are acceptable, provided I am familiar with both fandoms. I do not write slash or explicit sex.

Esther-Channah ([ profile] dragonbat2006) just posted a fic written for me, and it is very funny.  You all need to read it now!  An Offer He Couldn't Refuse.  It is a Batman/Muppet Show crossover.  Yes, you read that right, Batman/Muppet Show.  To say more would spoil it, but it captures the zaniness of the Muppet Show while still being true to Batman.  (Ok, maybe not Chris Nolan or Frank Miller's Batman, but still Batman.)  Go and read, you'll have fun.

(She lists the songs at the end, and if you're not familiar with them I'd recommend doing Youtube searches for them to get a feel for them beforehand, particularly 'Brush Up your Shakespeare.')

I have to rec the fic I got from [personal profile] medie.  It's everything my little TTH drabble series wanted to be when it grew up. It is awesome.  The original is an Angel/Dark Knight crossover, where Gunn moved to Gotham and became an assistant DA who moonlights as a demon-fighter, and then Batman gets turned into an actual bat.  Gotham (the Just When You Think You're Out Remix) is about 1000x more awesome.  Kara!  Zatanna!  Stephanie Brown as a slayer!  More bat!Batman!  Demons in the ceiling!  Seriously, it's awesome, and you must read it.

So, remember a few weeks before Christmas when I posted about the icons I wanted, and how they were all images that just needed to be cropped and resized but my graphics skills weren't up to the task?

My parents are professional photographers, and their studio Haugen's Galleri has been completely digital for over five years now. So they've got these incredible cameras and computers and graphics programs, and it took Mom like two seconds per image to make them into icons. She threw in an image from my High School senior portraits, too. (Yeah, I know it's been eight years since they were taken, but I haven't changed that much and it's not like you can see my face anyway.) It's my new default icon. Isn't it pretty?

Anyway, here they are:

Written For: 

[personal profile] raz0rgirl for [community profile] yuletide
Prompt: Anything Alfred & Lucius-focused. Can be slash or gen, present, past, future, as long as it's focused on these two. I get the feeling watching the film that they've known each other for a long time. Maybe something exploring their history during the seven years Bruce was gone.
Author's Notes/Summary: After the funeral of Thomas and Martha Wayne, Alfred and Lucius have a quiet talk.




beatrice_otter: Brother Cadfael (Brother Cadfael)
Paper Sails (Jane Austen--Persuasion). It's a lovely look at Wentworth, angry and heartbroken at Anne's rejection, finding healing on the sea.

Fabulous (The Incredibles). A screamingly funny look at Edna (you know, the costume designer?). Written from her perspective. Short, sweet, and perfectly in character.

The Servants' Ball (Gosford Park). That Christmas, Robert learns the truth. The way I wanted that movie to end. Beautifully written.

Radiant Fire, to Things Ephemeral (Fifth Element). This story fills in the gaps in Leeloo's personality that the movie leaves--taking into account that no matter how innocent or naive she seems, Leeloo is tens of thousands of years old.

A Picture of Happiness (David Webber--Honor Harrington). Honor so rarely gets peace and quiet and happiness. This is just one day with Paul, before things hit the fan again.

Cry for Yesterday (Chronicles of Narnia). Lucy and Susan, coming back to England. Yes, I know it's been done a thousand times, but this is a well-done telling.

Outliving the Universe (Chronicles of Narnia). Susan, after her siblings die. Yes, this has also been done many times, but this fits so beautifully into Lewis' style and themes, with such a great twist, that you have to read it.

A Good Queen (Chronicles of Narnia). We get scads of fic about how hard it was to adjust back to England afterwards, and how much the Pevensies missed Narnia. This is how, in the beginning of their years in Narnia, they missed England. Lucy and Tumnus.

As Time Goes By (Casablanca). Louis and Rick, ten years later, in New Orleans. A beautiful look at friendship and loyalty, from Louis' point of view.

Aux Armes, Citoyens (Casablanca). After the war, Louis doesn't know what happened to Rick, and never will. He doesn't ask because he likes the romantic endings he makes up for himself, hard though they are to hang on to after years of Vichy followed by years of partisanship.

Not Strain'd (Brother Cadfael). This little treasure could be a short story by Ellis Peters herself, that's how well it fits into the style and themes of the series.

Havana Honeymoon (Bringing Up Baby). Susan and David, leaving for their honeymoon at last. Slightly over the top, perhaps, but isn't that what's delightful about the movie?

If Wishing Made It So (Batman: the Animated Series. Bruce/Batman at Christmas time, flustered by Selina Kyle/Catwoman and not sure what to do about it.

Come build in the empty house (Batman Beyond). "The difference between you and me is, I'm not you." Bruce and Terry cope, after the end of "Return of the Joker." A beautiful look at the two men, and all of Bruce's regrets, and learning to be whole again after all these years.

The Highest Reaches of Hell (Batman Begins). Bruce playing at being a playboy, giving just enough truth in his lies to make them unbelievable. A beautiful look at the contrasts in his life.

The kid from the Narrows (Batman Begins). Follows the life of the kid as he grows up. A realistic look at what life is like in the Narrows. Not sugarcoated, but not depressing, either. With a great twist at the end.

Q & A (Batman Begins). "The Manor burns, there's a break out at Arkham, and terrorists let loose some kind of toxin in the Narrows, but we're supposed to believe the fire's just an accident?" What Vicki Vale is doing in the Batman Begins universe. Very well done, answering one of my few lingering problems with the movie.
