Right. Right. I am now going to do something I never do, which is post the first part of a fic before the whole thing is finished. The completed fic will go up at the ficblog when it's done, obviously.

This was meant to be my [livejournal.com profile] ds_shakespeare project; also [livejournal.com profile] brynnmck's birthday present, but THAT fell through in a dramatic way, so now it's just something that I'm writing with her in mind. (I don't think I would have waded gamely into the murky swamp of F/K/V on my own account!) I have taken all sorts of bizarre liberties with this one. Everyone just smile and have fun and ignore my blatant disregard for canon(s).

ANYWAY - ENJOY, BRYNN. SORRY IT'S SO LATE. And I will be highly surprised if nobody has done this fic idea before me, but it was written with love, so I figure it doesn't need a brilliantly original premise as well :D

Proving once again that she can't do something without raising the bar for all subsequent efforts, [livejournal.com profile] copinggoggles is having a SUPREMELY ORGANISED MULTIMEDIA LOVE MEME at her journal. When I have had my breakfast and cleaned the bathrooms I will return and spill love all over it, but you should all go and start filling it up in the meantime.

Last night I got [livejournal.com profile] unravels hooked on Slings & Arrows, an achievement which unfortunately backfired and resulted in me compulsively rewatching the entire first season. Oops. I LOVE YOU DARREN.

My moodtheme is making me nostalgic for Owen (and, I suppose, the rest of Torchwood), but I'll save that particular rewatching for after exams.

fic recs!

I don't do this nearly often enough.

(What's that? You want to hear about my life? No, you don't. It's dull as shit just at the moment. The most exciting thing that happened today was a moment of GRAND IRONY in which I realised that I was skipping my Virology With Denny Duquette lecture in order to type up notes about viruses that cause - haHA! - heart disease. I spent at least an hour lusting magnificently after the new edition of Fields Virology. I ripped merciless verbal holes in the arguments of the group presenting their behavioural neuroscience seminar, which was maybe a bit cruel, but they shouldn't have been, well, wrong. I had beef biryani and passionfruit frozen yoghurt for dinner, and I am about to make myself green tea. Yep, that's it. Fic rec time now.)

'06 Bonnie and Clyde - by [livejournal.com profile] hobviously - Veronica Mars, Mac/Cassidy, S2 AU.
Veronica, in all her mercilessness, might be proud; might be horrified, too, which sort of strikes Mac as even better. This is ruthless and smart and weirdly, inexorably romantic. Uh. Kind of. Anyway, it's great, and Tris deserves love for it.

My Space Adventure - by [livejournal.com profile] skooziepants - SG:A/Scrubs - vaguely JD/Dr. Cox-ish, implied Sheppard/McKay.
And by ‘my own lab’ I mean balcony number four hundred fifty-seven, because the Janitor likes to lounge in the herbal remedy experimental greenhouse from two to five every day and hatch evil plots. This is the funniest thing I have read all year. Maybe ever. Every single character is pitch-perfect (especially Rodney and Dr. Cox) and it reads EXACTLY like an episode of Scrubs, complete with insane mental commentary and amusing incidents with botany and chocolate bars. Read it. NOW.

The Brave Man With a Sword (Le Petit Mort Remix) - by [livejournal.com profile] likethesun2 - Slings & Arrows, vaguely Darren/Geoffrey.
So of course today we spoke of my vision of our university 'Romeo and Juliet', where you kissed me and I killed you. I have read this fic about seven times today, and each time I am more impressed. I wish I'd written it. It's short, but it's about as perfect a piece of fanfiction as I can imagine - sharp, cynical, hilarious, and presenting a devastatingly accurate depiction of a difficult character. Everything about it is amazing: the metaphors, the epistolary format, the theatrical allusions, the tragicomic inevitability of the repeated history Darren finds himself trapped in. Even if you don't know the fandom you should read this, because you can pick up everything you need to know from the context (and the original fic that it remixed, which is also very short).

And now for tea and my [livejournal.com profile] ds_shakespeare fic, which I am dangling cruelly under [livejournal.com profile] brynnmck's nose but not letting her beta, because it's doubling as her birthday present. I LOVE YOU BRYNN. Don't slaughter me out of impatience.

Course abbreviations, for future reference:

ACN = Advanced Cellular Neuroscience
I&I = Infection & Immunology
AP = Abnormal Psych
IBN = Issues in Behavioural Neuroscience

Okay. In the true spirit of Week 1, ie. The Week Where They Waste Your Petrol, I only had one lecture, the introductory ACN one where they tell us about the 60% exam (HURRAH! I approve of courses with large exam weightings). I also bought a parking permit, paid my semester fees, and wandered nostalgically around the campus for approximately ten minutes before deciding it was too damn hot and taking refuge in the air-conditioned medical school computer lab.


And now for some pimpage of links:

- [livejournal.com profile] loki013 linked to this fantastic Vanity Fair photoshoot, which is making me want to buy the magazine. I do not think I have ever bought a magazine - of any sort - in my life. But this...! Glamour! Film noir! Gorgeous people!

- [livejournal.com profile] setissma wrote an AU McShep fic, Wide Open Ocean, which I have not yet commented on because I am awful. But you should read it; everything Tai writes is infused with a careful, rich sense of love, and this shines through especially here because she's writing about a subject very close to her heart.

- And [livejournal.com profile] brynnmck also wrote fic. Slings & Arrows fic, in which she is enough of a Bard-geek to satisfy even my greedy soul. And it's Brynn, so it's hot and funny and absolutely spot-on in its characterisation of Geoffrey and Ellen. Live In Thy Heart, Die In Thy Lap, and Be Buried In Thy Eyes.

This show may as well have been custom-made to bring me immense amounts of joy. That is really all I can say.

(Paul Gross + Shakespeare + injokes + sneakily brilliant meta + theatrical hijinks = WONDER BEYOND IMAGINING.)

I am going to write fic. It will probably involve Tempest because, as I told Brynn, I will seize just about any opportunity to fuck around with that text.

As I told Ji: this sums up my life ridiculously well.

This post brought to you by the package from [livejournal.com profile] brynnmck that arrived today <3333 You should all probably be prepared for me to start babbling about Shakespeare and Stoppard with even greater regularity.
