I backed up my LJ here May 2011 and now crosspost.

At the moment while I post on both I only read my LJ reading list, so if you'd like to be friends, please friend there as well: [livejournal.com profile] jasmasson. If you friend and comment on either, I'll friend back. You can also find all my fic at AO3 faviconjasmasson and I'm starting to use tumblr too, and am in need of people to follow there... *smiles winningly*

In the future, I'm looking to move to a DW reading list... but I'm not there yet!

jasmasson: (Default)
This post includes all recs in date order. Most Recent up the top. Each set of recs ordered by fandom and by genre (slash/gen etc). At the bottom are my top one (or sometimes two) fic(s) in every fandom I have ever read in.

EDIT: All I seem to do is rec these days, but OTOH I'm really not keeping this post up. I'll leave it here; basically it has old SPN recs up to May 2009 and my BEST FIC in each fandom I've ever read at the bottom, but for things post May 2009 you'll need to use tags.

In an effort to be helpful, therefore, here are the tag links to all recs, and things I rec regularly:

All Recs
Merlin Recs
Inception Recs
H50 Recs
SPN Recs

In an effort to re-engage with some fannish community and creativity I have signed up for this week's [livejournal.com profile] gsd_rtfn = Get Shit Done - Right the Fuck Now!

It's a weekly challenge where you set your own daily/week's goals. You can sign up here if you've got some writing/art goals this week, and want to be part of a nice supportive community to help you along.

Anyone know where I can get an avi of episode 3 of The Vikings? My sources only have 1, 2 and 4! It's available on The History Channel, but alas not over this side of the pond.

Anyone got a line? (Or technical knowledge how to fool it into thinking I'm North American?!)

Interesting. Just read this Kane/Toews de-aged fic and it occurs to me that although I’ve read many of this trope (one of my very favourites) I’ve never read one before from the de-aged POV rather than the adult POV. I liked it!

http://archiveofourown.org/works/711262?view_full_work=true (Never getting that shirt back, Kane/Toews, 16k words, R)

Anyone got any de-aged recs? Any fandom, any POV?
jasmasson: (where's dean)
So, I read a SPN RPS fic today for the first time in, IDK, 3-4 years?

Because I still love the boys even if I don't love SPN anymore, and, more importantly, my love of Peter Pan is part of my DNA and it's a Peter Pan au, and also a sneak coffee shop au! \o/ My cup runneth over. 10k words, R, J2.


AO3 meme

Jan. 5th, 2013 06:51 pm
jasmasson: (dark and stormy)
So I did this AO3 meme:

Go to your works on AO3, open up each of the fandoms you've written in by ctrl-clicking or right-clicking on the fandom name and opening it in a new tab, then sort each fandom by hits. See which of your fics appear on the first page of the fandom. You never know, in those little fandoms (or the bigger ones if you've been a good little fangirl) you might even find yourself near the top.

There's only three fandoms I've written more than two fics in on AO3 (it's fair to say I'm not prolific) and here's the results!

1) SPN - ahahahaha. No.
2) Troy RPF - Wow. Number 1! \o/ But, ah, it's not as impressive as all that because actually I've written 5 of the 25 fics on AO3 (20%!) so I'm also 4, 7, 9 and 10 ;)
3) SPN RFP - ahahahaha. No.

I then realised how many different fandoms I've written one fic in, which comes from doing Yuletide for four years, I guess, so here are just the notable ones:

Troy - 1st! and 3rd \o/ Out of 54 - in the interest of full disclosure, the number 1 is the same that made me number 1 on Troy RPF as it was a crossover/roleplay thing.
Myron Bolitar - 1st! \o/ Out of, uh, ahem, 6.
The Outsiders - 1st! Out of 43.
Monty Python RPF - 4 out of 26.
Belgariad/Elenium - 5 out of 21.
Casino Royale - 11 out of 62. But obvs nowhere if you take all Bond movies thanks to the Skyfall phenomenon.
Jeeves and Wooster - 15 out of 395.
X-Men Origins Wolverine - 17 out of 78.
Hard Core Logo - No, but an honourable mention for being first on the Kudos list?
jasmasson: (merlin)
Happy Holidays! Merry Christmas to those who celebrate, and a wonderful 2013 to all.

Ah, Yuletide. Genuinely one of my favourite things about Christmas, and one of the few times in fandom my timezone works for me, because I get to have some sneaky reading as soon as I wake up before the family festivities begin.

I had two (2!!) lovely Yuletide stories this year, both Pointless RPF. Oh my God, if you've never seen Pointless find it and watch it. It's a BBC tea-time quiz show hosted by Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman.

They are so delightful; clearly very, very intelligent, witty, funny, occassionally silly and definitely incredibly fond of each other. <3

Check out my delightful gifts:


which I adore.

And, so, Merlin, now I've had a chance to think about it...spoilers ahoy )

Unfortunately, someone won't get the Yuletide treat I was hoping to finish now, as I need to rewatch Merlin a million times instead, because I just can't process it at all.
jasmasson: (Default)
1) Good news - I'm still in [livejournal.com profile] mini_wrimo. I think this is maybe the 4th year I've done it and this is the furthest I've ever got, so \o/

Sadly, I'm probably averaging about 102 words per day, and I've started four different things, but still. Words! Every day! \o/ \o/ \o/

2) Those four things are all in the same fandom and all for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. Three actually seem mutually exclusive as I'm groping for the same point just in three different ways, so I need to commit to one!

3) I'm mostly on tumblr now, as jasmasson (I know, I'm a master of disguise). If you're on tumblr follow me and I'll follow back. It's no LJ in its heyday, but it's a lot of fun.

I reblog anything that catches my eye and enjoy following multifannish blogs (that's how you find good things on the interwebs!)

4) Fannishly, I'm re-reading a lot of old Due South fics. Dammit, I loved Fraser/RayK and I loved Fraser&RayV, and hot damn there were some great authors in dS.

Also Hockey RPF and Olympic RPF. I have an extremely embarrassing crush on Patrick Kane. I don't know. I can only assume he has somehow stockholmed me into it the way he has apparently also stockholmed Jonathan Toews.

5) I'm enjoying Merlin, although I'm kind of at that stage you get to when you're reading good fic that's getting a little tired in the later stages and I'm just counting the moments until I know... how does it end how does it end how does it end?

jasmasson: (mfu mom)
Damn, some of these are HARD.

Pitting Jack and Daniel against John and Rodney? Original K/S against reboot K/S? That's just mean!

jasmasson: (merlin)
Why do all my TV shows hate me?

Supernatural is still the wound that will never be healed, dammit *dramatic sigh*, and now Merlin:

Oh, that's annoying. You wait until a WIP is finished to read it and then, after reading x thousand words, there's a cliffhanger ending and the promise of a sequel.


Teen Wolf

Jun. 15th, 2012 11:30 am
jasmasson: (Default)
I need to talk about Teen Wolf. I want to enjoy this season like I enjoyed the hell out of last season; as fluffy eye-and-brain candy. Derek Hale is insanely hot, and Stiles is very, very much my type. I can even find love in my heart for Scott, Allison and Lydia. And also Scott's Mon and Stile's Dad and the Coach. (Not Jackson, though. Sorry Jackson.) But...spoilers )

Why must you take away my simple pleasures, TV? Why?

Stuff I've been reading recently in a range of fandoms (I really need to commit to one) that has been AMAZING.

1) Julia Roberts Sits on a Throne of Lies by [livejournal.com profile] smithereen, Hocky RPS, Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane, NC17, whore!fic, WIP, in which Tazer is the worst hooker ever and Kaner sucks at paying for sex. OK, I have never seen these guys play a game of hockey but that doesn't matter, even if you know nothing at all about them, this is brilliant.

FYI, all I know about hockey I learnt from Of Hawks and Hands a F/K 200,000 word fic by [livejournal.com profile] dsudis. If you like slash and haven't read this you have no idea what you've been missing out on. You will forever rue the days weeks months and years in which you had not read this fic. Easily one of my top 20 fics of all time.

2) Team Building Activities by [livejournal.com profile] valtyr, 38,000 words, The Avengers, Steve/Tony, R. The best avengers fic I've read, I think.

3) The Illusion of Life by [livejournal.com profile] toestastegood, Heroes, Mylar, 6,600 words, set in the 5 years gone universe, read the author's warnings. Shona writes in many fandoms very much to my taste, and this is the best Mylar fic I've ever read (I read it years ago, it was written straight after Season One, I think). Brilliant fic, just as good on the re-read.

4) Kings of the Mountain by faviconsloganeer, The Social Network, 12,000 words, Mark/Eduardo, NC17, AU. Nice AU in which the separation never happened and they slowly developed a relationship instead. Lovely, sexy, curtain!fic.
