exsequar: (FF Tams blood is thicker)

Hello my lovelies! I'm going to actually make a FIC REC, mostly because I CAN. A few in fact! How thrilling! In the past couple years, I haven't been reading much fic, one because I'm so damn busy, and two because I just haven't been in a fandom in the same way as I used to be. I dabble here and there but honestly my greatest joy still comes from reading old McShep classics. My obsession with them is occasionally alarming in its enduring intensity. Space jockey and his irascible scientist! <3333

Anyway, I got off topic. Let's talk about love in space of a different sort! I actually am most interested in gen Hermes crew fic for The Martian because I love everyone on this Hermes, but for now I'm just reading whatever is linked to me and not being picky because I LOVE EVERYONE ON THIS HERMES! So here's a couple recs.

  • Numqvan te tradam by otter - This is almost exactly what I needed, which is basically the Hermes crew mother-henning Mark with love and cuddles all the way back to Earth. It's from Beck's perspective and brings in Mark/Beck/Johanssen which I don't necessarily need, but it's sweet and adorable and warms my heart in the best way. :')

  • Interstitial by Lanna Michaels - A lovely three-part continuation of Mark's log both on the Hermes and then back on earth. Again some undertones of OT3, but mostly just Mark's lovely snarky self and his love for his whole crew-family. <333


I do want to say though, I'm a bit annoyed by fandom immediately jumping on Mark/Chris. Yes Beth is getting included a lot, yay, and Chris and Beth are the only unmarried people on the Hermes, BUT you know what I want to read? Mark and Martinez snark! They're best friends, remember? And they're delightful! There is not NEARLY enough Martinez right now. Get on that fandom. I guess I'm just annoyed because the whole Mark/Chris thing has a large whiff of "attractive white dudes! make out!" Hrm.

Sorry, got crankypants. ENJOY ANYWAY!

(Oh my god I need new icons. If you know a currently active place I could find some let me know!!)

Snagged from the awesome [livejournal.com profile] winterlive, whom I prompted to write Dean's birthday porn and she DID and it's FANTASTIC:

[livejournal.com profile] yin_again had the best idea: Porn it Forward.

The first person to respond to this entry with a prompt gets a little off-the-cuff porn. The rest of you writers out there post the same call in your journals, and we make a lot of porn for a rainy Friday-before-the-holiday. It's what they call a win-win scenario.

So, first person up - prompt of your choice. And don't forget to Porn It Forward.

Now, I have no idea how successful I'll be at doing this. But hey, I'll give it a try! (Sam/Dean or Jared/Jensen prompts only, pretty please :))

Title: I’ll Protect You
Author: Anne ([livejournal.com profile] starsouls1013)
Rating: PG
Pairing: A dash of Sam/Dean, but not really.
Warnings: A bit of blood, if that bothers you in text. No actual violence "on screen" though.
Word count: 1710
Summary: Dean swore to protect Sam from the very beginning.
A/N: Inspired partially by Dean’s line in The Benders: “Ever since then I’ve felt responsible for him, like it’s my job to keep him safe.” This fic sprang to life as bits and pieces, and gradually became a coherent whole, though composed of varied vignettes. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] theaeblackthorn for giving it a look over!

When Dean held baby Sammy... )

Okay, this one requires a bit of explanation. I'm taking a class called Experimental Fiction, and right now we're learning about the Oulipian movement, a French literary movement that's still going on. Basically what they do is devise constraints to write by. They're often very precise and extreme, creating writing that seems strange and a bit unnatural, perhaps nonsensical, but that has merit nonetheless. We were assigned to either choose a constraint or create one of our own, then write a short fictional piece under that constraint. This is what I did:

I opened the short story Brokeback Mountain (I have it in bound form, by itself) and wrote down the "important" words (that is, nouns, adjectives, verbs, not articles and prepositions) from the first line of every page, in order, so each line of the list had the words from one page (for example, "cold/flames/twisting/poking"). Then I decided that every sentence in my story would have at least one word from this list, and at least one word from each line of the list would be used in the story. Um. It makes sense in my head, does it in yours? :P Anyway, it's not essential to know that, but I think it's interesting. So here's the story.

Title: Nowhere and Everywhere
Author: Anne ([livejournal.com profile] starsouls1013)
Rating: PG
Length: 460 words
Feedback: As always, dearly cherished.
Summary: Reminiscences of a summer spent with a brother.

We lost ourselves out there, that summer... )

Title: Die For You
Author: Anne ([livejournal.com profile] starsouls1013)
Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: PG
Pairing: Vaguely Sam/Dean ish
Spoilers: through Nightmare
A/N: I absolutely love Sam's line in Bloody Mary, "You're my brother, and I'd die for you." And Dean's tiny little frown in reaction. So this idea kind of came out of that, as a bit of an elaboration of each of their thoughts on the subject. It was written in chemistry class (AGAIN), so it's not really perfect. But I like it. Feedback is appreciated :)

You're my brother, and I'd die for you. )

I just dug up two pieces of original fiction that I wrote a year ago. I'm intensely proud of both of them (especially Another Step) and would love any feedback. (Especially you, Sara - I'd love to know what you think.) And I swear I'm not depressed like these stories make me seem. I'm just somehow much better at capturing pain and despair than comedy or love or anything happy. Heh.

Title: Another Step
Author: Anne ([livejournal.com profile] starsouls1013)
Rating: PG-13
Summary/Teaser: She did not feel the jagged edges of the broken stalks as they scraped the soft skin of her feet. Her footprints glistened crimson in her wake, marking her trail of small scale destruction.
A/N: There really is no context for this. The beginning sprang from my mind, and I just ran with it.

Another Step )

Title: Obsidian Eyes
Author: Anne ([livejournal.com profile] starsouls1013)
Rating: PG-13
Summary: A young man tells his story of loneliness, temptation, and loss.
A/N: The narrator is male. Everyone assumes it's a woman because I am - but nope! This was written for a creative writing assignment for AP English last year. And if you don't know, obsidian is a kind of rock, completely black, shiny, and very hard.
