ihd: dear livejournal
Since the tragic demise of our most beloved delicious, I, like many others, have migrated everything over to pinboard. Fortunately I was already using it as a backup from my delicious account, so everything that was on there is also on my pinboard.

I've finally gotten my tags mostly in order and so I thought it was about time I updated this list for the new site. While my delicious account is still there, I no longer post to it. My pinboard is public, so even if you don't have an account you can still access the bookmarks.

This is a list of the all the fandoms I have rec'd on my pinboard account in alphabetical order with a direct link to the pinboard tag. This list includes fan fiction, fan art, and fan vids.

A few things to keep in mind: all fandoms with over 10 entries are bolded, there's no guarantee that anything not bolded has more than one entry attached. Also, recent additions are denoted by *.

Recs Masterlist - By Fandom:
# - B | C - E | F - H | I - K | L - N | O - Q | R - T | U - W | X - Z

Updated 2-26-2014 to add Blue Beetle, Check Please!, The Cutting Edge, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Legally Blonde, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Mulan, Romeo and Juliet, Tangled, Vikings, and Zombieland.

This is a list of the 179 total fandoms I have rec'd on my delicious account in alphabetical order with a direct link to the delicious tag. This list includes fan fiction, fan art, and fan vids.

In the land of Winterpeg they love Jonathan Toews quite dearly. As the beloved first hockey son of Manitoba they have lauded him with many rewards and distinctions. A lake named after him that he has never seen. Two days with the cup where he has been held on high above the masses. A Community Center proudly bearing his name.

In the Jonathan Toews Community Center in the, I am sure occasionally lovely, city of Winnipeg, Manitoba (rumored soon to be renamed Toewspeg, Manitoews) there is a Jonathan Toews Trophy Case. Or as I fondly like to call it: Jonathan Toews' Shrine. For your viewing pleasure, in all it's glory, The Shrine.

THE SHRINECollapse )

Hockey RPF Fic Recs

stock: unibones
BECAUSE THE WONDERFUL IPREFERAVIATORS HAS FINALLY SUCCUMBED TO THE LURE OF HOCKEY FIC, HERE ARE SOME RECS. These are just my favorites, but if you want more I've got an entire Hockey RPF rec tag on my pinboard you can read through or you can head over to AO3's Hockey fandom tag and try your luck there!

Title: My Siberia: A Russian Knitting Circle Story
Pairing: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin
Summary: That’s the crux of their relationship, really, Geno thinks as they go through customs in Pittsburgh International. Sidney’s different. Sidney’s always been different, and he’s always going to be different.
He doesn’t realize until he sees Sidney and something inside him unknots that the way he is about Sidney is different.
Well, fuck, he thinks as Sidney claps him on the shoulder.
Notes: SIDNEY CROSBY IS GENO'S SIBERIA. I just. Epic pining and ridiculous Russians, this fic is great. This is also probably the best introduction to Sidney Crosby you'll get. I read this before I knew who anyone in hockey was and I pretty much blame it for my downfall into the Pittsburgh Penguins and sid/geno.

Title: Tour de Force by thehoyden
Pairing: Patrick Kane/Jonathan Toews
Summary: “Write what you know” was good enough advice for Jo March, so it’s good enough for him, and that’s how Patrick starts banging away at a novel about a hockey player. To be fair, Erica told him that he should get his brain away from hockey for a little bit — but come on, that’s basically impossible.
Notes: AU in which Kane is secretly a novelist. I have read this one a stupid number of times.

Title: This Cold Harbor Now Home by hapakitsune
Pairing: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin
Summary: The one person Geno wants to build a family with already has one.
Notes: This is Kid!Fic in which Crosby has a ten month old he didn't tell anyone about and Malkin has been pining for him for years. Full of angst and still adorable, it's a really slow build relationship that avoids a lot of the pitfalls kid!fic tends to fall into.

Title: Fastening One Heart to Every Falling Thing
Pairing: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin
Summary: "I am never going to get a bondmate. Shawna can't make me, you can't make me, Gary Bettman can't make me. I don't want one. I think it's gross. I'm never going to eat pepperoni, I'm never going to like dancing, and I'm never going to want a bondmate." Sidney paused for a second, thinking it over, and realized he had something else he needed to say. "What I want is you. Not instead of a bondmate, or as a fake bondmate. Just - you."
Notes: aka Sidney Crosby is very powerful mentally but has no control. Evgeni Malkin has absolutely no psychic ability in a world where everyone bonds psychically with each other. Malkin can't bond and Crosby won't. This is a great subversion of the bonding trope.

Title: If I Took You Home (It’d Be a Home Run) by svmadelyn
Pairing: Patrick Kane/Jonathan Toews
Summary: This is a story about true love overcoming the hugest (no, seriously, the hugest) of obstacles.
Notes: What really should be a story constructed mostly of giant dick jokes is instead a complex, touching love story about love conquering and interpersonal relationships. Also a LOT A LOT of porn.

Title: love is a contact sport
Pairing: Patrick Kane/Jonathan Toews
Summary: And the tragic reality of Patrick's life is that even though they broke up over a year ago, he and Johnny still play beautiful hockey together.
Notes: This is a bonding canon au whose first half is set entirely in High School, so there is A LOT of pining and angst and amazingly terrible teenage emotions in this mostly because they don't realize they're bonded and are idiots a lot. It's great.

Title: Friday Night Arrives Without a Suitcase
Pairing: Claude Giroux/Danny Briere
Summary: “People who want to eat my grilled cheese for dinner should learn not to interrupt the delicate purchasing process with their unwelcome mockery,” Claude says.
Danny and Claude move to Berlin. Nothing really changes, until everything does.
Notes: The thing to know about this pairing is that it all reads like Kid!Fic except that is basically canon. Danny Briere is a divorced father of three sons who invited 23 year old Claude Giroux to live with them for a season. Obviously this resulted in a lot of domestic fic, this one is just my favorite.

Title: Right on the Limits
Pairing: Sidney Crosby/Evgeni Malkin
Summary: He’s all the more rattled when one minute, he’s grabbing his keys and his phone off the kitchen counter so he can head off to his latest doctor’s appointment, and the next, he blinks his eyes and realizes that Geno has his forehead pressed to Sidney’s, lips murmuring a tangle of Russian and English.

“Geno,” Sidney says, and he can hear the fear in his own voice.
Notes: This is a Sentinel AU. I have never seen the Sentinel, this fic was still amazing anyway.

Title: Crossroad Blues
Pairing: Patrick Kane/Jonathan Toews
Summary: In which the demon Patrick Kane gives Jonathan Toews everything he's ever wanted.
Notes: AU! Toews makes a deal with a crossroads demon to become talented at hockey. Kane is the demon who makes the deal and just can't leave him alone.

Title: If Heaven's Hypothetical by impertinence
Pairing: Jeff Skinner/Eric Staal
Summary: Jeff runs away from Toronto and finds himself homeless in Raleigh, where he accidentally starts serving eggs to Eric Staal.
Notes: AU and a warning for age difference like whoa.

Stopping there, officially. I cherry picked from the first 100 bookmarks I have saved on pinboard. There are 342 as of right now, this list would be ridiculously long if I kept going!

New Masterlist in the Works

stock: unibones
Right now in my non-hockey watching/discussing/writing free time (what little of that there is) I'm working on a list much like the Recs Masterlist by Fandom. This one, however, is going to be absolutely MASSIVE - the Recs Masterlist of Pairings by Fandom.

I thought about creating separate fandom bundles on pinboard but with the number of fandoms and the set up of the bundle system it wouldn't end up being very useful. Instead, this will be a series of posts linking every single pairing I have tagged in pinboard sorted by fandom. As the Fandom Masterlist has, the last time I bothered counting, upwards of 250 fandoms this is quite an undertaking but it will be a great resource to quickly find specific pairings without having to dig through the entire list of tags on pinboard.

What I'm wondering is this: are there fandoms you would like to see sorted out first? Due to the limitations imposed by posting lengths I'm going to have to break up the Masterlist into a series which gives me the luxury of not having to do it in order.

So! Let me know what you're interested in seeing up here, if you're interested at all, or if you have any suggestions. :D

This is what I did tonight*:

How was your Halloween?

The length of time since I've post an update is so terrifyingly long that I am actually afraid to open my journal and check when it was. I've instead spent an obnoxious amount of time across various social media sites ultimately just missing what I used to have on lj. Change is hard and I clearly suck at it.

While my love affair with twitter will forever be undying and annoying facebook with instagram pictures of my cooking will never get old, there's just nothing like a journal. I miss my fandoms! Tumblr's great for squee (though I would rather dig my eyes out with a rusty spork than attempt to read another fic on it) and AO3 is frankly amazing, but there's something about people writing on their journals and comms that can't be attained in any other format.

So! I... am going to try this again.

Wish me luck.

Drive-by Rec

ff: crazy
The Avengers movie-verse (yes the one that hasn't come out yet)/Iron Man/Captain America/How Do I Actually Label This Fandom/Marvel Movie-verse

Ready, Aim, Fire by gyzym

[Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, 21,000 words]

“Where’s Pepper?” he demands, when he gets to her office to find it empty. Her secretary—small and competent and utterly unimpressed by him, why is everyone so unimpressed with Tony today, Tony is a very impressive person—sighs.

“She’s in the conference room, Mr. Stark,” she says, “but you can’t—”

“Nope, nope, I can, my building, it’s fine,” says Tony, and he dodges the woman, strides down the hall, throws open the conference room doors, and clears his throat.

“Captain America," he says, "is a dick.”

Then he notices the table full of investors.

Also, anyone know a good place to get icons these days? My icons make me feel old.
The Dresden Files

Other Things The Road To Hell Is Paved With by LuciaZephyr

Harry Dresden/John Marcone, Dresden Files AU [137,925 words]

If you're familiar with Dresden Files, this series begins during the warehouse scene in Fool Moon and takes a left turn. It's an elaborate AU and is only the first part of a series which is essentially an AU of the entire series of books. Epic and totally worth the entire day it took me to read.


A Fellowship to Call Your Own by veritasrecords

Mark/Eduardo, The Social Network/Harry Potter fusion

"'Minion'," goes Mark, looking up at the last second. "It's Slytherin for friend." And, for a beat, Eduardo looks remarkably pleased.


My New Old Favorite Everything by earlofcardigans

Jesse Eisenburg/Andrew Garfield, ridiculous High School AU [4,638 words]

* aka my bookmarks on Delicious are basically unusable and so I am finding alternate means to save things. I can't even see more than 10 at a time and I have nearly 7,000 bookmarks on it! And they took away all my precious bundles. Woe.

Woke Up Married Fic Search!

stock: unibones
Dear fellow fandom members: where is all the woke up married fic?

After an exhaustive search¹ and extensive questioning of fellow fandom members² it has recently been uncovered³ that there is no multifandom reclist for the woke up married trope!

I'll pause for a moment to let that sink in for all of you.

What I propose to do is to make one. How can you help, I hear you asking? It's simple! Just go look through your bookmarks/delicious/memories, copy down the link, and post it here!4

I will make a reclist crossposted on my Livejournal and Dreamwidth of all the woke up married fics we can find. In addition, I have already made a delicious which will have everything tagged on it as well.

So send those woke up married fics you read or wrote or happened upon!

¹ or 20 minutes on delicious and google

² i.e. my twitter followers (so mainly sansets and zeenell actually)

³ decided by me

4 you can also reach me on twitter or by email midnightbex @ gmail [dot] com!
