NCIS: LA 4.9 The Gold Standard

Read more... )

I've also posted a couple of ficlets: ce matin, ce soir, hier soir The Musketeers (BBC), Teen, Aramis/Anne. Written for the prompt ‘The Musketeers (BBC), Aramis + any woman, Consent’; and An unexpected fit Fairy Tales (Cinderella), Universal. King, Queen, Cinderella, Prince. Cinderella/Prince. Written for the prompt ‘Fairy Tales, Cinderella/Prince, King & Queen POV - "This is the girl who fits the slipper!"’

I forgot to mention that both were prompts from [ profile] comment_fic. They were both drafted in the week when the prompts appeared and subsequently edited. Form is important in both, the non-linear structure of the The Musketeers fic and the alternating POV in the Cinderella ficlet. The latter is set in a conglomeration of various versions of the fairy tale as opposed to one. I am thinking about posting the WIP meme, but I don't want to jinx the writing that is currently going on.

Thank you to my amazing betas: [personal profile] lilacsigil and [personal profile] musyc. You guys were awesome and got me from "I want to write POI Sentinel/Guide fic with soft face touching" to actually getting it posted.

Title is from the Elton John song. ("Subway's no way for a good man to go down.")

Summary: In 2001, Harold advised on a project called Cascade, not knowing he was a Guide himself. Years later, he and John, a Sentinel on the run from Cascade, must help Shaw, who has just lost her own Guide when the Project turned on her. Complicating matters is Root, searching for Harold's Machine and interfering with their rescue of Shaw.

I got my 50K fic off to my second beta/ameripicker. I feel weird. I, uh, finished something. It's due to be posted on the 15th. What even?

Interesting things I didn't realise until I had to edit 50K of my own writing )

I have actually written a lot of things this year!

Tinee Linkspam:
- via [personal profile] musesfool, OPI summer challenge
Leave prompts! (Please leave some more POI prompts!)
- From Facebook, Clydesdale foal leaves the stable for the first time - tinee leggy baby, big world, what do? How do you even horse?
- Also from Facebook, this terrible curse upon some burglars. CW: creepy doll faces
- From my local paper, big news in this part of the world: Giant puzzle solved. (The puzzle is literally a puzzle.)
- From McSweeney's via [personal profile] kalloway, I’m a Google Manufacturing Robot and I Believe Humans Are Biologically Unfit to Have Jobs in Tech. (Rolling my eyes right out of my head at that google dude.)
- From My Modern Met, What Happens When a Bird’s Wings Sync Up Perfectly with a Camera’s Frame Rate. (I have dreams where stuff like this happens, like where the laws of physics are apparently broken)
- Free crochet pattern: Stingray purse or pal (I'm not sure why not both? I could be pals with a purse.)

Root/Shaw things from my endless tumblr wanderings while I was writing 50k of fic:
- Silver Lining - a Root/Shaw doujinshi. Pls pls [personal profile] lilacsigil, read this to me?
- POI OST You Are Being Watched - this is brilliant. Gifs from the final scene over the score for the theme.
- Winter Soldier!Shaw is kinda… Swol - I am all over this idea as an AU.

[personal profile] shallowness
I have mixed feelings, a lot of which are of the frustrated variety, about this film. I can understand why reviewers gave it middling ratings because some aspects are brilliant and others are not good. If you like your science fiction weird and wonderful and colourful, go see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 first this but be aware there are problems.

details but not too spoilery )

Basically, if nobody vids this source, I will be gutted.
