You may have noticed that this isn't Psych fic. That's because I'm, well, flaky and also still recovering from the pre-holiday-time rush. I'm still hoping to have it finished before I start my next Psych fic (that'd be by mid-Jan), but we'll see. But in celebration of the fact that my brain is currently half-functional I decided to give you a rec list composed of things that I don't normally rec. Whee? This is perhaps a bit more scattered than one of my normal sets, but then again, my recs are normally fairly scattered, so maybe it's just average :)

Not Fanfic Things
Pro-fic things that you might like! )

Canon things
two episodes which satisfy my fannish heart, plus reviews thereof. AND! The ever-important question of 'what episodes satisfy your fannish heart'? )

Meta
This is one new thing and two old things which I have previously recced on my journal but haven't put here (as I haven't decided what my policy is on reccing meta here, especially stuff that properly speaking isn't fannish meta so much as cultural meta, which all of these are).

three links to cultural meta )

Fannish things
podbang (long podfics), an SPN-crossover comment-fic meme, and a Psych fic fest )

Completely unrelatedly, I have a [DreamWidth] invite. Would anyone like it?

ETA (29 Dec 2009): Two things to add:
One more episode rec and one fannish meta )

A rash of new shows have shown up on my flist and Yuletide has begun. So how about some recs for small fandoms? And some for fandoms which aren't small but that I don't read much in. I had intended to put links to canon for the rarer ones, and to sort the recs somewhat (like keeping the fairy tale fandoms together), but this is kind of an insanely long set as is, so I decided to go see what desert was in the kitchen instead. ETA: If you saw the version before I ran spell-check, can you just pretend that you didn't see it?


20 fics, 1 pic-spam, a few podfics. Fandoms are many and varied )

(This is actually the second rec set I ever put together, so it should be further back in the archives, but I accidentally overlooked it when I was importing things. Ooops.)

I'm quite enjoying myself watching random episodes of SG1. Is a bit of a change from the SGA stuff I've been dinking around with lately. And so now I shall give you recs, so you can also have a fun time! And some of them even have SG1 in them. :)

Title: The Protection Racket by Pares (aka [livejournal.com profile] kormantic). (Story also at personal fiction website)
Characters, Rating, Fandom: McKay/Sheppard, NC-17, SGA/SG1
Author Summary: He found the ad in miscellaneous: Any Job. Sliding scale.
Words: About 14,000 words.
My Summary/Review: So there's the line: O'Neill liked Carter at least as much as he liked pie—probably more! This is an awesome line, and one of the few I can pull up that doesn't completely spoil the plot. So the premise is that Rodney & Sam Carter are playing strip poker when Jack O'Neill comes in. Rodney bolts, thinking that O'Neill is going to to kill him. So Rodney goes looking for a body guard. Who of course ends up being John Sheppard. There's lots of really witty stuff and it is quite fun. (Yes, I definitely suck at this summary and review thing)
And here's more summary that tells plot points (highlight to read): [skip] Turns out John is retired Air Force-- the retired part being why he does lots of handyman jobs. But he knows O'Neill and thus knows that O'Neill isn't going to be murdering Rodney. So he figures that he'll let Rodney have his spazz-out for a while. John and Rodney end up sexing at some point. SG1 tracks Rodney down because they've found an Ancient artifact of some sort. This bit is fun because (a) John is actually doing his body guarding gig (he rushes out when he hears the door open, even though he'd been in the shower) and thus (b) "Major Sheppard?" O'Neill said eventually. "That you?" "Yes, sir." "I didn't place you right away." "Well, usually I'm wearing pants, sir." John accidentally touches the random Ancient artifact and thus, *bing* re-instated and heading to Atlantis.

Title: Research by [livejournal.com profile] jadesfire2808
Character, Rating, Fandom: Ronon, G, SGA
Length: Drabble
Warnings/Spoilers: None
My summary: Ronon's reaction to Earther inside jokes.
My review: Go clicky! It's short and worth your time! Usually when I'm reading, I'm looking to immerse myself in another world. Longer pieces are better for this, so I often skip drabbles. I skipped over this one several times, but I'm glad I finally clicked on it. It is a quiet and very insightful look at Ronon. Spoilers follow: [skip] When I read this line "...with the same single-mindedness that he uses to hunt Wraith". I was almost jerked out of the story. I thought to myself, 'Now, surely, that's an exaggeration! That doesn't make any sense. Why would that be true?' But she answered it beautifully and believably in the final sentence: "He had too many years without laughter before he came to Atlantis, and now, Ronon doesn't want to miss any of it". Very well-done.

Title: That Which Does Not Kill Us by [livejournal.com profile] liketheriverrun
Rating, Fandom, Charaters: T, SGA, Team plus a smidge of Woolsey
Category: Slash, humor, graphic novel
Word Count: 9 pages, so dialup users beware.
Spoilers: Anything up through The Seed
Author's Summary: The inspiring tale of a team strengthening their bond through group therapy (aka, five secrets about the team that came out in therapy)
My summary/review: Awesome, awesome, awesome! Absolutely worth the wait for the images to load :)


Hmmm, that ended up being way more SGA than I was intending. I guess that's what I get for putting both Stargate universes in the same folder....

As per usual, if I've got inaccuracies, broken links, or missing info (especially podfics, DVD commentaries, and sequels/prequels), please do let me know.
