fandom friday

from Thinkgeek.com

Tardis vs. Dalek salt & pepper shakers, from Thinkgeek.com. How adorable are these?

The 6 Creepiest Comic Book Characters of All Time: featuring a round-up of bestiality, incest, and animate dolls. Thanks for that, comic book dudes.

-Everyone’s favorite S.H.I.E.L.D. agent lives (come on, we all knew it)! It was announced this week at NYCC that Clark Gregg, as Agent Coulson, will head the upcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. tv show.

Fic recs!

Polyamorous Recommendations: this isn’t a fic itself, but a great place to find fic from a lot of different fandoms. As the site itself says

What you’ll find here: The following in flavors of slash, het, and gen: spies of all kinds, from SD6 to Section 1; vampires, slayers, watchers, scoobies, evil lawyers, and ministers of grace; buddy cops out the ying-yang; space cowboys, big damn heroes, and Jedi Knights; rockers both punk and glam; wizards, witches, death eaters, elves, hobbits, and dwarves (oh my); immortals who cannot die (but at least they come); big gay alien superheroes and the criminal masterminds who love them; sports entertainment professionals; FBI agents and the rats who fuck them (over); and mutants, mutants, everywhere.

What you won’t find here: You may have been misled by the site name, but this isn’t a recs site only for stories featuring polyamory. It’s unlikely that you’ll see domestic discipline, mpreg, or incest. No character assassinations, and no achingly earnest Mary Sues. And while your recommenders are fannish crackwhores, there are fandoms they don’t do, like RPF (not that there’s anything wrong with that).”

Extreme Home Makeover, by squeelated. Fandom: Eureka. Pairing: gen. Rating: G. SARAH’s latest upgrade gives her a holographic interface…but Fargo’s programming, like always, leaves a lot to be desired.

“After two years in Eureka, very little could startle Sheriff Jack Carter. As it turned out, coming home to find Buffy the Vampire Slayer dusting his living room was one of the things that could.”

Dancing Like the Living, by Raven. Fandom: Garth Nix’s Abhorsen series. Pairing: Sabriel/Touchstone, but largely gen. Rating: PG-13. A gorgeous follow-up that fills in some of the spaces we never see in the series itself.

“When they cross into the Old Kingdom many days later, she asks, “What is your real name?”

“You called me Touchstone.”

Saraneth is still broken, cracked; and yet they have been bound together.”

Happy Friday, fandom!
