A ton of people have already recced this story, but I'm going to do it too, because it deserves it. However, I am going to caveat it with the note that if you're not in an emotionally sturdy place right now, you may want to wait to read it until you're feeling more robust, because it will make emotional confetti of you even if you are in a good place to start with. It's poignant and piercing and both heart-breaking and heart-healing at the same time. Seriously, this is one of the best pieces of fanfiction I have ever read. In fact, file the serial numbers off it and you have a truly superb piece of original storytelling. It's self-contained enough, with such good characterization, that I don't think you need to be a fan of Stargate: Atlantis to read it, to understand it, or to enjoy it. The story is Freedom's Just Another Word For Nothing Left To Lose by Synecdochic and you can find it on the author's lj or on her website.

I laughed, I cried, I wanted a beer. :)

Radek totally has that 'crazy goalie vibe.' :D

I don't often rec things, but this one really must be recced, even though it was just posted a few minutes ago. I got to read it in draft form as it was being written over the past year or so, and it's truly an amazing story.

The story is The Boys from Berlin Affair by [livejournal.com profile] cordwainer_s (aka Cord Smithee). It's a Man From UNCLE fic, about 160K (words not KB) and very much NC17. Here's the brief synop from Chromeandgunmetal.com:

"I don't want to wear his uniform and I don't want his damned astigmatism and I don't want his sadistic streak and I do not want his smile. And I don't want ageing Nazis looking at me like the fountain of immortality and their youthful indiscretions all rolled into one."

(In case you were wondering, it's episode related. The Gurius Affair.)
I just posted three new Man from UNCLE NS/IK stories to The Chrome and Gunmetal Madhouse for Cord. They are as follows:

Parachute (NC17) (a sequel to "Paperwork")

Hands (PG13)


Enjoy. ;)
I posted another MFU story for mon ami Cord:
The Book-Scholar Affair

A very short one this time. G-rated. :)

Elizabeth Bear has posted the prologue and first chapter of her novel "All the Windwracked Stars" here. She will continue posting two chapters a week until the book is finished. It's original fiction, and in the words of the author: In its unified form, it's the first half of a not-a-duology (formerly a not-a-trilogy) collectively entitled The Edda of Burdens. As the name might hint, it's Norse Fantasy. It's also Cyberpunk. Sort of. And periApocalyptic science fiction.

I've uploaded a new Man from UNCLE story for my friend Cord at chromeandgunmetal.com (Heh, I typed 'gunmental' first... how Freudian...). It's called Bewitched and you can find it here: http://www.chromeandgunmetal.com/chrome/archive/1/bewitched.html

NC-17. Some hetsex/multiple partners. (ETA: Warnings corrected)

(Not hetsex/multiple partners like in Achilles. Very different. Just happens to have similar warnings. Funny, I hadn't even thought of that until just now.)

ETA2: Don't let that scare you off. It all works out slashily in the end. Honest. :)

*gasp* I know, you're all shocked. You didn't know I ever read non-fannish fiction. I do, though. And this is a lovely little gem that takes a familiar legend and gives it a fresh spin.

Old Leatherwings by Elizabeth Bear. (Who is on LJ as [livejournal.com profile] matociquala)
I posted another little story for Cord. Man from UNCLE, NS/IK, rated G. This one's short and not smutty. :) It's here: http://www.chromeandgunmetal.com/chrome/archive/0/theblueeyed.html

I just figured I should post this here, too, since some folks aren't on [livejournal.com profile] muncle. I've uploaded two stories for a friend of mine with very limited internet access. Both NC-17 NS/IK. You can find them at:


I happen to think they both kick serious butt. ;)

My friend [livejournal.com profile] celli wrote a short and sweet due South fic. Go read "Learn To Do Nothing in One Easy Lesson."

I don't usually rec things... in fact I kind of abhor recs because they always seem to lead to hurt feelings (i.e., why didn't that bitch rec MY stuff??), but I'm going to rec something anyway. It's not in my usual fandom, and I stumbled across it accidentally the other night through a crack-van rec for a different story by the same author. I think this has got to be one of the best slash stories I have ever read in any fandom. It's Pirates of the Caribbean, Jack Sparrow/Norrington (which is the only pairing I actually 'read' when watching the film).

It's actually a series of 4 linked stories "Full Moon," "Tides," "Drowning," and "Currents," by [livejournal.com profile] firesignwriter. Her men are men, complicated men who have deep emotions, who hide those emotions from themselves and each other, and only gradually reveal them, but never in the light of day. The story is layered, the writing is crisp, literate, and nuanced, and the story is profound and moving. The point of view is consistent, praise the Lady! Oh, and, uh... it's hot. Very very hot. Did I mention that it's hot? :-)

Anyway, go read.

6:00 pm ETA: lovely Theban Band Sparrow/Norrington pics here. Probably oughtn't open these at work or in front of easily embarrassed elderly relatives, some are NSFW.
