So, for today, I am to pick something with an alternate timeline, which I take to be fic set in the same universe as canon, but where something has alterned that universe. I was tempted to pick [livejournal.com profile] psiten's "The Butterfly Effect", but then I'd be all tempted to discuss what the key event diverging the timeline from canon was, and that hasn't been revealed yet, and it would be a betrayal of my sacred oath as a beta, and so I can't.

So instead... )

Wow. I fail so hard...

I totally forgot all about this meme all weekend. In my defense, it was because I was marathoning Vampire Diaries with [livejournal.com profile] psiten, who hadn't seen it before, making it totally in a worthy cause? And yet still. Even adorable pouty psychotic vampires should not so distract me from my course of action. I am shamed.

So, for... last Friday's entry... I was supposed to do a time travel fic. Being that I read crap tons of Doctor Who fic, that is, of course, pretty easy to find. I did think about taking the time to scare up the link to something less obvious, but my clock informs me that I have only ten minutes left before I am even more days late on this, so I will just go with my first instinct.

This took me a while to decide upon-- I don't really read song fic. So I sat down, and scrolled through my delicious bookmarks that I'd tagged as awesome, looking for anything that had anything to do with a song. And I found something! This is the very first piece of Naruto fic that I ever read, Love Songs and Ladies by [livejournal.com profile] maldoror_gw. It's SasuNaru, and it's old school; written before Sasuke ran off with Orochimaru. It is short and charming and in every way delightful.

This one was surprisingly easy, actually.

This is from a piece of Torchwood fic, and is the best explanation I have ever seen for why the Doctor feels as he does about both weapons and "spoilers".

"If you've got a gun in your hand, you have only two choices. Fire? Or not? Weapons are like that. They narrow things down. There are other options, Ianto. A whole world of possibilities in every moment. It's like telling Jack about all this, giving away spoilers. If he knew, he'd be trapped, a prisoner. Down to only two choices every time -- going along with it, or trying desperately not to. Doesn't that seem small to you? Wouldn't it ruin it all?"

So, today's topic actually presents me with a bit of a conundrum. I remember phrases that I like; they stick with me very strongly. I am entirely certain that there are dozens of fics I've read with lines I found very memorable which I could use for today's entry. The problem is, I only remember things that I store in my memory upon specific prompt. If a topic tangential to a memorable phrase arose, I'd think of the quote. But with a prompt this general, I'm afraid I've been coming up blank.

Most really common fanfic tropes (such as, for example, the blanket scenario) I have a tag for in my delicious bookmarks, but 'amnesia' is one that I don't, so I had to spend quite some time scrolling through looking for fics that I thought I remembered the issue arising in. I had initially planned on using one of the (legion) Doctor Who fics that added Rose to the events of Human Nature, since memory loss is a plot element in almost all of them, but I eventually decided against.

This fic is A Theory of Two Centers by [livejournal.com profile] sam_storyteller, one of the first Torchwood fics I ever read, actually. Manages to be both in character and very sweet, as well as plotty. I read this fic way before I had actually finished watching the series, and it's the fic that first made the Jack/Ianto pairing seem plausible to me as a relationship, rather than just a casual sex thing. Altogether excellent.

Okay, I didn't so much "forget" to post yesterday as "not remember until 10:30", at which point I decided to do my taxes instead. Mea culpa.

So, for anyone reading this who somehow managed to avoid knowing, a "blanket scenario" is a fic wherein Character A and Character B get trapped in a cabin in a blizzard, where they must share the (one) blanket available Lest They Die. It's a silly trope, but a popular one, and if I am not mistaken (and I'm pretty darned sure I'm not) it was born on an Aoshi/Misao fanfic mailing list about fifteen-ish years ago, quickly spreading throughout the Kenshin fandom, and thence, the rest of the internet.

This one was tricky mostly in that I spent a while trying to decide what my "kink" was. I debated sundry pr0ny things for a while, but decided against. For lo, when I contemplated it, it was clear to me what my true weakness was; the thing I'm most likely to seek out in fiction of all kinds, and the thing most likely to make me pick up a given work.

Ah ha! At last, another easy one. I have a crap ton of fics that would generally be considered "angsty" bookmarked, but I myself don't tend to call it "angst" if there's any light at the end of the tunnel, if you follow. With that understood, I strongly recommend against reading this fic if you have a low tolerance for not even remotely happy endings. Behind Closed Doors is Doctor Who fic of the Rose/Ten II variety. It is not one of those fics where the two of them are all bitter and alone because they never worked things out after Ten dumped, them; I have pretty much no tolerance for those. It does start out that way, but if it ended that way, I strongly suspect that in addition to being a much worse story, it would also feel quite a bit less like a fist to the gut.

Corellary to the above warning: if you do tolerate, and especially if you happen to like fic of this sort, this one is excellent indeed, and you should read it.

Well, with today's subject matter, it's really more a matter of culling from a multitude of options, and then deciding which I'm not completely embarrassed to admit to reading. (shame: I occasionally has it).

I have two fics here, actually, largely because slash pr0n and het pr0n give me really different vibes, in general,and I couldn't decide which of the two I wanted to go with, so. Since, as previously established, I hate decisions, I naturally decided to do one of each. At that, neither is really a "pure" PWP, as both are technically multipart fics. To which I say: bah, whatever.
