I've really been enjoying all the yuletide fics.  So much awesome all in one place.  All the yuletide fics I've read so far can my found in my delicious yuletide tag, or check them out below, in no particular order.

Fics marked with a are personal favorites of mine.
Recs! )

I'm exploring posting from Diigo.  I think I prefer the way coding everything myself looks, but this is certainly easier and faster.

Ugh, I am so done with the flu. Right before the Holiday's, brought low by a nasty virus. I *think* I'm better today, but each day has been a different-set-of-symptoms adventure.
cut for ranting about flu symptoms :P )

Through it all, I was mostly feeling too yucky to even read...though I perked up every once in a while, and puttered around the internet.

I watched Dr. Horrible again, and the commentary musical, which was fun.

The weeks saving grace: podfics! I'm usually not that in to podfic, since I like reading, but podfics were the perfect thing for my unfocused self.

If you're interested in fics read out loud, check out [livejournal.com profile] general_jinjur's wonderful audiofic site.

I listened to a bunch of old favorites: fayjay's podfic of [livejournal.com profile] astolat 's Old Country, then Twilight's podfic of Bernice's (aka [livejournal.com profile] iibnf ) iHero, and now I'm working on a [livejournal.com profile] zabira's podfic of [livejournal.com profile] cesperanza 's Chicago's Most Wanted.

Thank you fandom for giving me fic even when my sick tired eyes don't want to read. :D

Hopefully I'll be better in time for hanging out with the family on Christmas, which is tomorrow (yikes!). If not, I'll have to stay in quarantine at home.

Time for another Inception-specific thematic list!

This time, the procedure that gave the film it's name: INCEPTION!

I’ve bookmarked all fics I’ve come across that deal with incepting characters, which I've tagged as "incepted."

This list is by no means comprehensive, since the concept is the same as the title of the film/fandom, it's rather hard to search out. If you have any additions, recommendations or suggestions, let me know! This is definitely a work in progress.

Resources:
[livejournal.com profile] inception_kink’s .inception tag, (Including 6 fills as of 12/3/10)
[livejournal.com profile] inceptficfinder's scenario: inception tag, for story searches (2 searches as of 12/3/10)

You are waiting for a train... )

Time for another Inception-specific thematic list!

This time, that bizarre place that nobody wants to visit...yes, the Hotel California of the dreamworld, where once you enter, you can never leave (except when you can), LIMBO.

Here's the second entry in my Inception-specific thematic list series of doom.

What is more Inception flavored than Edith Piaf's amazing song, Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien, used as the method of waking the sleepers from their dreams.

I've tried to bookmark every fic I came across that specifically incorporates Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien. This list is by no means comprehensive, so if you have any additions, recommendations or suggestions, let me know! This is definitely a work in progress.

Wait for the kick...Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien )

More thematic lists yet to come!

I've been thinking about an Inception-specific thematic list for a while. There are common themes in Inception fics that, like any other fandom-specific themes, are unique to the fandom (excepting fusions & crossovers).

To kick off my Inception thematic lists, the 'Mal was right' trope. Basically, Mal was correct in believing that the events of the movie are all a dream. There have been some fabulous and varied fics that explore the idea.

I've tried to compile a comprehensive list, but if you have any additions, recommendations or suggestions, let me know!

Mal-was-right, and these fics will show you how )

ETA 11/17/10: Added "Wherein Dreaming Was The Only Escape" by anonymous.
ETA 11/24/10: Added "Some Dream, Others Rise" by [livejournal.com profile] musesfool.
ETA 08/28/11: Added "Cause I Can't See the Sun" by Sour_Idealist, "Home by the Sea" by valderys, and Sworn to Lucidity by GloriaMundi.

Ever have a movie dry-spell? You know, when every movie you see for ages is mediocre or worse. It feels like I've been suffering from bad-movie-itis for months (maybe everything after seeing Inception this summer, though that is a hard act to follow).

Well, that dry spell ended as of last week!

Red )

(500) Days of Summer )

Megamind )

ETA: Unstoppable )

I also have hope for the coming months, with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (Nov. 19), Tangled (Nov. 26), TRON: Legacy (Dec. 17), and The Green Hornet (Jan. 14).

I'm also curious about:
Unstoppable (Nov. 12), directed by Tony Scott and starring Denzel Washington and Chris Pine (sort of Speed with trains). Just saw it, review above.
Skyline (Nov. 12), Independence Day-redux?
Gulliver's Travels (Dec. 22), starring Jack Black!?!

Rover Love

Feb. 2nd, 2010 07:54 am
jenna_marianne: (robots)
A recent XKCD webcomic on the Mars rover kinda broke my heart :  XKCD #695: Spirit.

Fortunately, fandom came along and patched it up.  There are *two* fanfiction fix-its for this webcomic that I've seen.  Guess I wasn't the only one brokenhearted.

The Battersea Home for Lost Robots
  by [livejournal.com profile] misswinterhill (G) [crossover with Doctor Who]
"It was okay, though. The humans would come soon, and then Rover could go home."

Spirit, The Sequel
  by [livejournal.com profile] linaerys (G)
"For three years, Spirit has followed the sun. The nights are cold and without sun she powers off, but she always comes on again when it rises. Something inside her tells her when to approach the equator, and when to switch to the other hemisphere. Mars is big, and its rocks are endlessly fascinating to her."

Does it count as RPF if it's about real robots?   Maybe RRF (Real Robot Fiction)?
