Best. Crack!Fic. Ever.

No, seriously, I think I just read the best crack!fic I've ever read. Well, one of the best, at least. It's a DW fic with Ten, Rose, and The Master. Well, technically it's a series of three stories, but they're one chapter each. It's called Chance Encounters and is located on Teaspoon. And it's a crossover with Supernatural.

Actually, I think I read one last night that just might top that. It's also a DW fic series starring Ten, Rose, and The Master. Human Women, Tea Time, Fiery Death, and a drabble called Ten Points. 6/25/08 There is more! Present and accounted for. 8/13/08 And more! The light fantastic.

Oooh. If you know of any other wonderfully cracky fics involving The Doctor, Rose, and The Master, do let me know (though, preferably ones with Doctor/Rose action...).

Also, In Plain Sight premieres tonight! I've promised to watch it with the parents, but I still think it'll be enjoyable (right up until the moment where Dad inevitably starts talking through the dialog we're trying to listen to, then I shall retire to my room, sulk a bit, and continue watching.)

*crosses eyes*

Damn sinus infections that hang on indefinitely. I'm practically done with my antibiotics and I'm still coughing stuff up. (Sorry if that's TMI.) At least I can breath out of my (thankfully unchafed) nose now. Well, most of the time, anyway.

In other news, I got my mom to watch season one of Hex and she really liked it. Whee! She also likes Torchwood fairly well. Yay for BBC America!

On a completely unrelated note, I've been reading a lot of "Harry goes back in time to change the outcome of the war because it totally sucked and damn near everybody is dead" fics. That and the ones where Harry and Ginny get together early on because fate intervenes or something occurs in a slightly different way than it did in canon. My favorites in this vein are:

Harry Potter and the Nightmares of Futures Past by Viridian
Summary: The War is over and Voldemort is finally dead. Too bad there's no one left to celebrate. Harry risks everything, even returning Voldemort to life, for a chance to go back and do it right this time.
Rating: PG-13
34 chapters, WIP

Harry Potter and Fate's Debt by intromit
Summary: Eleven year old Harry Potter is waiting to leave for Hogwarts. While he is waiting for the Dursleys to wake, he finds a letter addressed to him...from himself. It has a simple message: Get to know Ginny Weasley.
Rating: PG-13
22 chapters, WIP

The Meaning of One by Sorvan
Summary: If two people are deliberately created to be together, how will the challenges in a world of magic and Dark Lords be dealt with? What would it mean for two people to truly become one? When a prophecy is involved, who will be The Chosen One? A re-imagination of canon, starting with first year.
Rating: R
Series, WIP
Meaning of One, Part One: The Philosopher's Stone
26 chapters, Complete
Meaning of One, Part Two: Chambers and Secrets
8 chapters, WIP

If you've read these and know of any similar (in subject matter, ship, and quality) let me know.

More IchiHime recs

I have some more Ichigo/Orihime recs for you guys.

On the 7th Day by Joy Blue. (one-shot)
Summary: Ichigo would rather face hollows than Hikoboshi Yamada, his unexpected rival for Orihime’s heart.
It's sweet andfluffy, but that's what makes it great. And the characterization is spot on.
Sequel: The Gift (one-shot)

20 Souls by Flash-Indie (one-shot)
Summary: Twenty things you probably don't know about Kurosaki Ichigo and Inoue Orihime. For the 20souls challenge over at livejournal.
Heart-breaking and heart-warming at the same time. There's really nothing else to say about it.
Flash-Indie has written several other IchiHime fics (Better Be Home Soon, That Dreary Day in Late February and its sequel Lotus, Frist Time, and Fevers and Fingertips).

That's all for now. Here's a link to the original Ichigo/Orihime rec list.

Aug. 31st, 2007


I'm still freaking sick. Damn sinus infection that won't go away. It's seriously frustrating because there are things that I need to be doing, but can't because every time I try to do just about anything, I start coughing and having an asthma attack. It sucks. Stupid asthma. Stupid sinus infection. Grrr...

On a wholly unrelated note, I've recently become obsessed with Bleach. So obsessed that I now have an OTP in that fandom. (Ichigo/Orihime, if you're wondering.) While searching for quality fic, I've discovered that there isn't a lot in the "IchiHime" corner of Bleach fandom. I'm not saying there's not any quality fic; I'm just saying there's not a lot, mostly due to the fact that there's not a lot of fic there period. That is, compared to HP or BtVS/AtS fandoms, which are overflowing with just about every pairing imaginable (and some you really don't want to imagine and make you wonder just what the hell is wrong with the people who do imagine them *cough*Filch/Mrs. Norris*cough*). But, if I had to rec any, I'd rec:

Five Times by StarFire and Sakura (one-shot)
Summary:She did indeed fall in love with him five times.
It makes the hopeless romantic in me sigh. But it won't make sense if you haven't read chapter 237 ("Good Bye Halcyon Days").

Just about anything by Deathberry15. However, my favorite has to be the Sick Days, Seven Nights series.
Summary: In the event of Orihime getting sick, who'd take care of her?
Sequels: Rumors, Coming Undone, and Smile (all complete)

Bleach Field Trip by noi-chi (one-shot)
Summary: An ordinary biology field trip with a romantic twist on the relationship between two of my favorite characters, especially with the interference of a few close friends.
I like this one for it's levity. Plus, Plotting!Rukia and Backtalking!Hollow are always fun.

Not Long Ago by JuuJuuLuff (one-shot)
Summary: Ichigo has finally found Orihime. Now they can leave Los Noches, and go home. But what if Orihime doesn't want to leave? Or rather, She can't? What will Ichigo do?
This is the one that really screams angst. It does have a sequel (Not Long Ago Reprise, wherein Ichigo resolves to bring Orihime back no matter what), but it hasn't been updated since 5/22/07.

Five Years by Lilith Rei (complete)
Summary: Orihime finds herself alone in the realm of darkness, she slowly begins to come to grips with her situation. After five years Ichigo returns to the front to try and retrieve her, unexpected conflicts stands in his way.
This one's pretty much an epic and I love it for that reason alone. Other ships are one-sided Grimmjow/Orihime (which, while I don't ship, is done so heart-wrenchingly well), Renji/Rukia, Toushirou/Momo, Uryuu/Nemu and Gin/Rangiku.
Sequel: Shadows on the Wall (WIP)

Also, if you've never read (manga) or watched (anime) Bleach and would like to, you can catch the anime series on AdultSwim on Cartoon Network (on Saturdays, I believe) and the manga in a bookstore near you (licensed by TokyoPop, I think). However, if you're like me and too impatient for official releases of episodes and chapters, Bleach Exile has downloads of both the manga and the anime, and a place where you can read the manga without having to download it (Bleach Manga Reader).

9/12/07: More IchiHime recs this way.
