Reader's Notes: Podfic Big Bang is the highlight of my summer. It inspires me to push my own boundaries and make the stories that I love, but convince myself I don't have time for. Second, I have to thank my AMAZING beta, [archiveofourown.org profile] shmaylor, and my cover artist, [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte. Finally, a big thank you to my podfic sister, [archiveofourown.org profile] itsadrizzit. Not only did she help me edit and loop the music, she also kept me going when I wanted to give up. Without these amazing people, this podfic would not exist. ♥

Summary: He knows it’d be so fucking easy, if he’d let himself. Because he’s easy for them, has been since that first job, since the day he hauled Hardison’s ass out of a building about to explode. It’d be so easy.

So he won’t.

There. I said it.

(Never saw the original so I don't know how it compares)
out_there: Mycroft Holmes (SH: Prim Mycroft)
Because I enjoyed these and you might too.

First, a sweet little first date story (Mycroft/Lestrade):

Chapters: 1/1

"Stigma (n): A mark of disgrace associated with a particular circumstance, quality, or person.

Thanks in part to his own daring, Greg gets to know a whole different side of Mycroft.





Second, a Torchwood/Sherlock crossover in the five things type format that was charmingly fond of both Mycroft and Ianto:

Before we get into this post, please know: I am not a Trek fan and have never been a Trek fan. I like maybe 2 characters (MAYBE) and a select few episodes from like, ALL OF STAR TREK CANON and furthermore: I've not seen most of the Star Trek canon. I also have a lot of not-necessarily-positive feelings about Star Trek FANDOM that I've been known to vent about so.

Please please ask yourself whether, knowing that, you really want to read the rest of this entry (which will contain mostly snark). Also know: if this entry isn't for you, I still love you and would never judge you (or anyone) for a single second for liking the things you like.

General thoughts on Star Trek )

This fic very much reflects the way I played this game; I completely forgot about everything else and spent hours trying to get all the love hotel scenes.

Kokichi, it turns out, is extremely fun to write.


Title: Close Your Eyes
Fandom: Danganronpa V3
Rating: light R
Pairings: Shuichi/everyone, but especially Shuichi/Kaito
Wordcount: 2,100
Summary: Shuichi develops an unfortunate addiction to the love hotel.
Warnings: Spoilers up to the end of chapter two of Danganronpa V3. Dubcon themes (it's probably not morally great to have sex with someone in a shared dream if they don't know it's a shared dream).

out_there: Mycroft Holmes (SH: Prim Mycroft)
These days, to get me reading a series you have to sneak it in. It has to start with a good story that stands on its own, that makes me want to read more and that can be read in relatively small chunks. While this series is 200K, the longest story is the first at 38K and the rest are a very comfortable 5K - 20K per story. I enjoyed the Greg POV mostly used for this story, the insight into living around a job that comes with a security detail and secret overseas trips, and I always love stories where Lestrade plays a meaningful role in younger Sherlock getting clean and staying clean.

I've been reading this series for the last week, on and off, and really enjoyed it.



Puppet on a String (38518 words) by kazvl
Chapters: 9/9
Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Rating: Not Rated
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Mycroft Holmes/Greg Lestrade, Mycroft Holmes/Gregory Lestrade, Mycroft/Greg
Characters: Mycroft Holmes, Gregory Lestrade, Sherlock Holmes, OCs, Anthea
Additional Tags: references to drug abuse, case files
Series: Part 1 of Fire and Ice
Summary:

"Afraid I'll embarrass you?" mocked Sherlock, looking up suddenly, his stare spearing Mycroft where he sat.

Sherlock was too thin, too dirty - it was always a bad sign when he neglected personal hygiene - and he looked as if he hadn't slept for a week.

"Oh, that ship sailed some years ago. You've been vocal enough about what you don't want. So tell me, brother dear, what is it you do want?"

"You to leave me the fuck alone," said Sherlock venomously.

Several heads turned. Mycroft ignored them. He took such incidents for granted when he was with Sherlock and had never cared what strangers thought - unless required to do so by his job.

I've been struggling a lot this week. Yesterday I went back to work after nearly a month away, due to holidays and travel, and that's definitely landed on me like a very heavy truck. But in general, settling back into my life after the madness that the last 6 months have been is... a little difficult and disorienting. I've had a lot of see-saw feelings of "everything is great!" and "everything is awful!" and I'm kind of constantly exhausted and my tolerance for deadline-related stress is close to zero, and well.

If you're able to watch this show, you should! (Yaaay for Space airing it in Canada.)

Spoiler alert for tonight's episode (the fifth in the season):

GAY CHARACTERS IN THE REGULAR CAST.

Also, cursing!

"This is so fucking cool!"
