I was distracted by Escapade and going to Texas for a week during Spring Break. Plus I'm learning how to ski this winter. :)

amalthia: (Farscape John and Aeryn)
This is about a months worth of recs...I think this may be my only rec post for the month of February and second post of the month. I think school is keeping me far too busy. That and re-watching all of Farscape...I'd forgotten how awesome this series was and I'm having a tough time finding good fan fiction in the Farscape fandom.

Fullmetal Alchemist

Sex Ed Teacher by skydark - The Adventures of Roy Mustang (Pairing:Ed/Roy) INSTANT REC!!! I had a blast reading this story. I don't think I've laughed this much from the antics of the characters in forever. I highly recommend reading the sequel, Better Living Through Alchemy and the 3rd story in the series is a WIP so read that one at your own risk. Basically, this was an all around fun story to read and I loved the character voices.

Harry Potter

In Loco Parentis by Dolores_Crane (Pairing:Hermione/Harry Harry/Snape) INSTANT REC!!! This wasn't like any Harry Potter fic I've read in ages. It's probably because it's told from Hermione's pov but it also it touches on some much deeper issues and I could not stop reading once I started. I'll also add that one part made me cry.


Inception

Rough Trade by whiskyrunner (Pairing:Arthur/Eames) It starts off with hot sex and just gets better. :)


Supernatural

One Brick at a Time by nutkin (Sam/Dean Sam/OFC) This was very hot. I loved the build up and the ending really worked for me.

Metaphors As Mixed As You Can Make Them by halflinen (Pairing:Arthur/Eames) INSTANT REC!!! I loved the writing style, character voices, and I loved how Eames at the beginning of the story isn't the same as the one at the end. There was character change and growth and it made sense.


Towards Zero by mirabella (Pairing:Arthur/Eames) I loved Arthur's pov and the sex was incredibly hot.


Call and Answer by airgiodslv (Pairing:Arthur/Eames) The sex was hot and I loved the character voices.

A Mighty Fine Man by Zauzat (Pairing:McCoy/Pike) I loved this pairing and how the story unfolds with the guys becoming friends and then so much more. I would not mind reading more Pike/McCoy fics.

Supernatural Vid Rec

| Love the Way You Lie by fatedcreations (vid:recs:spn) I loved the song and the clip choices.

amalthia: (Supernatural Sam Evil)
Supernatural

Fortress by glasslogic (Sam/Dean) INSTANT REC!!! This story caught me from page one and kept me reading way past my regular bedtime. I loved the characters, the premise, and the writing style. You should skip my ramblings at the end of the post and go straight to the story.


Sing Your Hymns Like Angels In Defeat by leonidaslion (Sam/Dean) INSTANT REC!!! I got tears in my eyes more than once reading this story. I loved Sam and Dean's character voices, the premise, and how the story ended.


In Arcadia Ego by glasslogic (Sam/Dean) I loved the character voices in this story and I'd really love a sequel. This is the first Sam and Dean aren't brothers fic I've ever read and I didn't think I'd like them not being brothers but I gave it a shot and I'm glad I took a chance becuase I could not stop reading this story either.


Funny Thing About Denial by dragonspell (Sam/Dean) I loved the angry sex aspect of the story a lot. :)


Stargate Atlantis

How Not to Fly by Toomuchplor (Sheppard/McKay) INSTANT REC!!! I had a blast reading this story. Sheppard and McKay's character voices were spot on, I loved the kids, and I got tears in my eyes more than once. Wonderful storytelling.



In other news, I'm in love with my PRS-650. I added about 15 screen savers, mostly a combination of my favorite Battlestar Galactica and Supernatural wallpapers mixed with book cover artwork from Michael Whelan. (the guy that did the cover art for Tad Williams Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy, and the cover art for Joan D. Vinge's Snow Queen trilogy. I'm keeping an eye out for Legend of the Seeker artwork. I realized that dark hair does not show up so well in black and white so it looks like I'll need Cara wallpapers. (not a hardship at all because she's so beautiful) I like having a good mix but I don't want to go overboard either because the images take up a good amount of space.

The Touch Screen is also easy to use and responsive. But I think what impressed me most is that I added over 1000 ebooks to the device and it came back up in 3 minutes. On my PRS-505 if I were to do that it would take 30-45 minutes before I could even use my device.

I also love how the epub looks, the horrible side number on the margin is gone, it uses regular page numbers, and the fonts are crisp. I'm currently waiting for my cover to arrive before I start reading on my new device but so far I think I'm happy with it. I also love that the internal memory is 1.4gigs. I still have about 600 MB of free space left which is nice. It means I won't have to use my 2 gig microsd card for a long time.

I made it through the week, got my assignment 3 of doom completed with 3 hours to spare, finished my 3 day midterm today, and this weekend I have no assignments or tasks due. Which means I should get a start on assignment 4 but it's nice to know I have at least 8 days before I have another deadline.

Stargate Atlantis

Unnatural Selection by auburn (Sheppard/McKay) INSTANT REC!!! If you love science fiction and action/adventure and a good mystery this is the story for you. I was hooked from page one and could not stop reading until I'd finished the story.

Quartering The Odds by eighth_horizon (Sam/Dean) This is an AU of the Turn of the Wheel series and though it was short she packed a whole bunch of good stuff in this story. But I think I was pretty much sold at Hooker!Wingfic! and then Sam and Dean being themselves. :)


Merlin

I Keep Going Over the World We Knew (Over and Over) by Mellacita (merlin/arthur) I loved the concept of reincarnation and how Merlin and Arthur found each other again.


What We Have (and What We Have Left) by morcalivan I had a blast reading this story. It was sweet and Merlin's voice sounded spot on. I loved the premise of Merlin going to Camelot to kill Arthur and ends up shagging him instead. It was hot. :)
