Buffy Dawn sister love. S5, Buffy Dawn

Dear Everywoman Creator

General things I like: psychological horror, existential horror, weird plants, creepy ruins, creepy weird landscapes, body horror, amnesia. Kink negotiation, body appreciation, touching and teasing, xeno kink, women in charge, watersports, enemas, stuffing/belly kink (those last three are my kink trifecta; feel free to consider any of them as prompts for any of these fandoms!). A/B/O, tentacles, wingfic, steampunk vibes, mpreg.

General things I don’t like / DNW: sexual violence or threats thereof; gore for the sake of gore; death of the POV character; trauma to eyes, hands, or teeth. Larger person physically dominating smaller one, comeplay, non-con, D/s-type punishment. Infidelity, first-person POV, crossovers (exceptions noted).

TV fic recs

Still working on cleaning out my recs backlog. Here we have recs for TV fic!

Jeeves and the Inferior Valet, or, Thomas and the Kindest Man in England
, by [archiveofourown.org profile] Alex51324 - Jeeves & Wooster/Downton Abbey crossover
Thomas Barrow + Jeeves/Wooster, 13k. Recced to the moon and back already, but I shall rec it again, because it is delightful. Wooster rescues Thomas from an unfortunate situation, but of course it's up to Jeeves to actually bring things to rights, which he does, despite how Thomas's utter ineptitude as a valet pains him. The voices are perfect throughout. I laughed out loud multiple times. Highly recommended.

What Is Dark Within Me, Illuminate by [archiveofourown.org profile] sprocket - Babylon 5
Timov, 2.6k. I've read almost no B5 fic on account of avoiding spoilers, but someone told me that Timov never returned to the show, so I felt comfortable reading this one. It's set mid-episode and gives us Timov's own perspective and state of mind, and I was immediately fascinated by Timov in the episode, so I enjoyed this a lot.

Keep the Bouquets, Throw Away the Grooms by [archiveofourown.org profile] Netgirl_y2k - Game of Thrones
Margaery/Sansa, 2.8k. You guys, it's Margaery/Sansa arranged marriage fic. It is made of sunshine and light and knowingly raised eyebrows. I would read another 40k of it if I could.

Queen in the North by [archiveofourown.org profile] brutti_ma_buoni - Game of Thrones
Sansa/Brienne, 1.6k. The world is burning, Sansa and Brienne are fleeing north, and they find some unexpected solace in each other. Bittersweet and exactly the right length.

Go Wash Your Heart in the River by [archiveofourown.org profile] mardia - Sleepy Hollow
Jenny + Abbie + Crane gen, 13k. A casefic aside in which a woman is murdered and the trio is haunted by crows. This has everything I loved about Sleepy Hollow when I tried to watch it - Crane vs the 20th century, Abbie and Crane's weird but willing relationship, Abbie and Jenny's damaged sibling relationship still in the process of mending, and a gray New England moodiness - and only glancing reference to the stuff I didn't, like the apocalypse plot. Basically if the show were this, I would watch it every week, and as it isn't, I would gladly read tons more fic in this vein. (Recs welcome.) Everyone here feels like a fully-realized person on their own right, with all the complexity that implies, and the Jenny-Abbie part of it in particular gets some lovely nuanced development. Just wonderful.

Rarewomen! Including fic by me!

Fic for me: Attraction by [archiveofourown.org profile] Alley_Skywalker - Downton Abbey, Mary/Lavinia
Someone wrote me Mary/Lavinia!! This pairing was the first femslash OTP of my heart, and lo, now there is fic, just for me. It's from Lavinia's POV and it about her being dazzled by Mary, which a quite understandable reaction, IMO. Yes. :D

Fic by me:
Title: Ain't No Mountain
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Claire/Castiel
Words / Rating: 4600 words / hard R
Content / Warnings: pseudo-incest, dubcon on Castiel's part, underage (Claire is 17), unsafe sex, post-S8
Summary: This time, Castiel's the one sitting still, and Claire's the one blowing into his life with gale force.

A/N: YAY. I haven't been this excited about a fic I've written since Yuletide at least. I've been meaning to write Claire/Castiel for quite a while, and my recip gave me the perfect excuse. It is not perfect, I'm not positive I hit all the notes quite right that I wanted to hit, and I worry that I did not represent the screwedupness of the situation quite sufficiently. But still, I am Quite Pleased. :D

Anya final stand, S7

FIC: what lies beneath

Title: what lies beneath
Fandom: Downton Abbey
Pairing: Mary/Lavinia
Rating / Words: NC-17 / 1800 words
Spoilers: events go AU a little before the end of S2
Summary: Wine leads to kissing, and kissing leads to tentacle sex and other revelations.

A/N: This is my Porn Battle fic! I am so pleased!! Mostly I am pleased because Mary/Lavinia tentacles CLEARED NEEDED TO EXIST. I used the "any" prompt to write this, which I feel slightly silly about, because I'm the person who submitted all the Mary/Lavinia prompts. You'd think I could have prompted tentacles at the time. But no.

And yeah, I'm pretty tickled by the title I came up with. In case you were wondering.

Fic here at Porn Battle | here at AO3

my one comment on the Emmys

I haven't paid much attention to the Emmys, because I watch so little current TV. I cannot, for example, comment on the fact that Tatiana Maslany wasn't nominated, because I haven't seen Orphan Black.

However, you have released me from all obligation to take you seriously if you nominate Downton Abbey (DOWNTON ABBEY) for best drama. Just look at this list of nominees: Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Homeland, and DOWNTON ABBEY.

yes, Piglet, it's Yuletide

A merry Christmas and joyful holiday season (or midwinter vacation) to all on my flist!

The Yuletide archive is open, and I've spent part of my morning reading delicious things. Ideally I will read a bunch more and make more recs before authors are revealed next week, but it's going to be a busy next few days for me, and I wanted to make sure to get these recs in.

Also, I did indeed finish a treatfic. I highly doubt anyone will ferret it out from among the 2700 other fics, but if you do guess, there's a ficlet in it for you. :)

Anya final stand, S7

FIC: Nativity

Title: Nativity
Fandom: Downton Abbey
Characters / Pairings: Thomas, Sybil, background Sybil/Branson
Words / Rating: 1700 words / PG
Spoilers: Through the Christmas special. The fic is inspired by certain S3 events, but it cheerfully disregards all S3 canon.
Warnings: shameless fix-it fic; zero research of the contemporary Irish political/economic climate, which I've bent to my own purposes
Summary: Thomas follows Sybil and Branson to Ireland to try his entrepreneurial hand again and perhaps stir up a little political trouble while he's at it. Which is how he comes to be on the run with pregnant Sybil Branson and the only person on hand when she goes into labor. Lucky him.

A/N: I'll say this for a certain episode of S3: it stirred up all these Sybil/Thomas friendship feelings I didn't even know I had. This is the result. I'm fairly sure I have Downton Abbey fic ideas that don't involve babies, but none of those seem to get written. Oh, well.
