Annnnnd since I'm so far behind (and am procrastinating on my current cosplay project and my dropped writing project), here's the next batch of links! Also a smidge shorter than usual, as I spent half the month in Austria/otherwise without internet.
August 2010 fannish links
August 2010 fannish links
- Oh yeah! Watched How to Train Your Dragon on the airplane, and it was wonderful. (Toothless was adorable, and made me miss having a cat.) Actually, thinking about it, I think I need to watch HtTYD again. And again. Just for the adorable-ness that is Toothless. I DIDN'T KNOW YOU COULD GET ADDICTED TO CUTE
- Also, I haven't posted fic recs in god knows how long (god or @backupmytweets, anyway), so here's a couple possible repeats. Rec: Variations on Forever, by janeturenne . Doctor Who, Doctor/Master epic,
10/13parts postedcompleted! l Variations is amazing amazicalness and everyone with the slightest interest in Doctor Who should read it. Master POV.
- Rec: Fear and Loathing at the Phoenix, by curiouslyfic . HP/DM, NC17, Harry as Hunter S Thompson

- Rec: Onfindan, by astolat. Merlin, R, Merlin/Arthur. Arthur finds out.
- Rec: The Difference Engine, by sam_storyteller . SGA, R, John/Rodney. Summary: Sheppard remembered dying in Afghanistan, but since he was still walking around he didn't pay that memory too much mind.

- Reading: Something About Toads, by pyrebi. SPN, PG13, Dean/Castiel, crack a la fairytale AU. http://is.gd/ekfLr
- Oh god. *buries face in hands* So at orientation today, manager had made picture cards for our self introductions, with our likes/dislikes and apparently, he managed to come across all of the yaoi blogs in search of a good Renji pic. He was like, "Is this character gay?" *red* I was so flustered and could barely keep from cracking up at the same time. (But hey, I got nicely printed fanart outta the deal, lol.)

- Also, @ajafair is the reason I got into this fandom in the first place. Blog with recs and meta: http://bookshop.dreamwidth.org #iblameaja
- Hmm. So, random fandom note: why does the genderplay usually get heaped onto the physically slighter characters? That's lazy thinking. :P On #inceptionkinkmeme, there are a bazillion girl!Arthur prompts, about equal girl!Eames & boy!Ariadne, and 1 each Saito & Yusef. No Cobb. Y.
- In SGA fandom, it's usually Sheppard, though I've seen a bunch with academia-politics for McKay and Jackson, too.
- Oh god. Was trying to think of other fandoms with genderbending and now want Naruto/Inception xover SOMEHOW. Dream ninjas? SexynoJutsu? IDEK
