Well, it's the 5th here BUT it's the 4th for most of you still (I think) so here are some recs to celebrate!

Knowing from the First by Merfilly (Rogue One, Chirrut/Baze, G, Soulmate identifying marks, 100 words)
Chirrut knew always.

I love how this fic explores how Chirrut can't see either mark, but he's still Chirrut: always certain.

Five Things that happened to Rogue One after Scarif by anonymous (Rogue One, ensemble, G, 1361 words)
It was surprisingly normal, afterwards.

Just a clever little team-as-family fic. I love the thoughts about the remnants of the kyber in the Death Star, and K-2's final line.

The Storm by anonymous (Original Trilogy/Sequel Trilogy, Han/Leia, G, 828 words)
Set between "Return of the Jedi" and "The Force Awakens"

Written based on this line in the Dear Yoda letter:
"If you want to show me a cataclysmic fight or the day Han left and didn't come back, go for it!"

Why do we hurt the ones we love the most? (Because we can.) This is a picture of a family breaking apart and those last ugly words. It's not pretty, but it's honest. 

Favorite Color by Merfilly (Prequel/Original Trilogy, Anakin Skywalker|Darth Vader&Luke Skywalker, G, 100 words)
A look inside Vader's mind at the moment. 

Another great drabble about a tiny detail: what was it like to perceive only a world in shades of red?

nrgburst: (Default)
I feel a little bad because there aren't many fandoms/ships in the exchange that I'm fannish about, but I got a wonderful gift in a smaller space fandom, so yay!

Here it is!

What it Takes to Survive- (Guardians of the Galaxy, Gamora&Nebula, Gamora&Peter Quill, T, 1183 words, Self-harm)
Five times Gamora's heart hardened and one time it was soft.

I love how meta-y this 5+1 is, how thoughtful the characterization and backstory details are! Really hoping the movie runs along the same lines because this is exactly how I read Gamora- she can't help but reach out even though Nebula's snarling with fury and would rather cut her own hand off than reach back.

And one more rec:

where is safety- (Rogue One, K-2SO& Cassian Andor, T, 1765 words)

The teenager (Andor, Cassian. Second Lieutenant. Intelligence operative for the Alliance to Restore the Republic) looks up. His face remains impassive. His dark eyes catalogue every movement and sound.

“You do not trust your fellow Rebels, even though you should. Yet, you trust me enough to be your only companion on an Intelligence mission."

K-2 AND CASSIAN BACKSTORY!!! I actually asked for something like this for chocolate box and never got it but now I have read this and am totally satisfied! :DDDD The POV is K-2's and is so perfectly done, as are the steps they take toward friendship and trust over the years. Also the final line will sock you in the gut. <3

I actually just looked at the numbers a few days ago, so this is good timing! (I'm nearing the end of my latest notebook, where I plot out fic arcs, bingos and GIFsets, so I wanted a summary.) Plus OTW is currently doing another drive for funds- I spend a lot of time on AO3, so I was happy to donate. One thing: I wish AO3 did stats by chapter, like ffnet does! 

Total: 31 works, 203489 words posted since 2013. In general: I write an average of 3439 words per piece/chapter (although they range from 100 to 8500 words), and I tend to complete one thing every three weeks or so. 

Numbers blahblahblah )

nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
Well, if you haven't seen The Last Jedi trailer yet, you've probably been living under some kind of social media-proof rock, but I'm posting it here just in case. LOL 

TLJ spec )


International trailers and other promos for GotG2 have also dropped, and the indication that Nebula&Gamora's relationship is going to be a key part of the narrative is making me SOOOO HAPPY! It's what I asked for in [community profile] space_swap  but REAL LIFE!!! :DDDD

More icons and GIFs obviously have to be made! I need to fix up the garden while the weather stays decent though- we're going to get pictures taken of the house this weekend so we can get into the process of selling. *gulp*

GotG 2/May 5th also can't come soon enough! I made these icons mostly from the trailers. Feel free to use them! They're sized for DW- most of them are too big for LJ. Credit/Comment, no hotlinking please.

GotG icons- mostly Baby Groot )

Also The Originals is back in less than a month! Check out the promo poster!

TO poster, icons and spec )

And as of 9 hours ago on twitter, Kylie Bunbury still doesn't know if Pitch will be renewed. *sigh*

ETA: Tried to cut to save image loading on reading/friend's pages but DW still hates div/cut tag interaction so I apologize for the formatting. *siiigh*
nrgburst: (Astrid writing)
 More recs! Not sure I looked through the archive properly though because I kept seeing duplicates galora?

Star Wars

i'm starting to feel it's right- M, Jyn/Cassian, 2853 words
This songfic had me giggling and I love how each section is inspired by a single line from Shakira's "Hips don't lie". There's a nod to AotC, sparkles and too tight pants. The Good Crack. :DDD

you only live a day (but it's brilliant anyway)- G, Galen/Bodhi, 2442 words
I love how this fic plays with time and memory, and the things that evoke emotional bonds. Absolutely beautiful.

Homecoming- G, Finn/Rey, 729 words
This fic is so them, capturing their incandescent happiness at being reunited again. Like that hug on Starkiller, but with kissing.

Rogare- M, Chirrut/Baze, 1811 words
Lovely backstory that explores those recurring Rogue One themes of faith and hope, and re-kindling (or perhaps finding anew) what was lost.


Say You Like Me, Just For The Night- T, Sam/Maria, 2140 words
Fake dating and competency kink. I'm totally sold on this pairing now. LOL

nrgburst: (bb8 flailllll)
I've had relatives in town so I haven't been able to read and rec until today BUT SO MUCH DELICIOUSNESS :DDD

I'm blown away by my gift. It's an AMAZING Bucky/Nat that is canon compliant to CW, and the terse emotion and detail/implications woven into each line are just incredible. Natasha is perfectly characterized, both cautious and confident. She pushes because she needs to know, but she's also careful because she understands if he doesn't (or can't or won't) remember and it's all shown so beautifully. Negotiating boundaries with emotional undercurrent and all the angsty push/pull= my crack. The final image of Bucky like Snow White in his crystal coffin (asleep to keep the poison apple from doing its worst) is just !!!! *cries* Plus code-switching! And they "subtitled" the fic with hover too, which is exactly the way I prefer to read code-switching. Even the title is nicely ambiguous, and the fic is both Remember this? and Remember This. It made me so emotional that it hit all my buttons bang on. :'DDDD READ IT GUYS READ IT

Remember This- G, MCU, Bucky/Natasha, 1593 words

I'm only about a third of the way through the collection  but here are some recs organized by fandom:

Star Wars

Two Guardians and a Baby- G, kidfic, Chirrut/Baze, 567 words
I don't usually like kid-fic, but this one is charming without being saccharine. Both Chirrut and Baze are captured just right.

Drive Me Crazy- M, Jyn/Cassian, 5+1 things, 1821 words
Can a fic be smutty, charming and make you LOL by taking things literally? This one did for me. XD

Fierce- G, Chirrut/Baze, 396 words
I literally LOLed at the ending. Chirrut, you charmer.

microcosm- G, Galen Erso/Bodhi Rook, 3135 words
This is such a gorgeous piece. Melancholy and introspective, and a sense of impending doom echoes throughout the flashes of warmth and connection that lead them to where we find them in canon. Just wow. 2nd person Galen POV. ([personal profile] tielan was this you?)

found, G, Finn&Poe Dameron, 711 words
A nice little in-the-after piece.

Intake Day, G, Baze&Chirrut, 494 words
A bright little picture of the past.

What's Cooking? G, Han/Leia, 445 words
Squid Pie and frazzled Leia. Short and sweet.


Palette, G, Wolfgang-centric, 1021 words
A little slice of life on how it feels to have the others in your head. Felix boggling at the changes is amusing, and Wolfgang's calm acceptance is also great.


No Sweeter Victory, T, Alec Lightwood/Magnus Bane, 5+1 things, 1416 words
Post 2x06, Competitive Malec dates and delightfully suggestive hints of fun to come.

nrgburst: (katherine cessation of hostility)
Since we can upload images to DW now, I have to mess around with it JUST 'CAUSE I CAN. :DDD
Elsie Hughes smiling when she sees Clementine's unscripted movement
Look Ma, no outside linking and auto sizing! (Elsie is pleasantly surprised too!)

To celebrate, I made a few icons. Feel free to snag them if you want! :D The usual no hotlinking, credit/comment please!

Padme disguised as her own handmaiden Padme hoping the Gungans agree to be her pawns Padme decides to return to Naboo Elsie Hughes smiling Baby Groot plugging two cords together Gamora with her hair flowing dramatically behind her
