 This DW is sadly mostly dead now (although it may pick up with new Killjoys), but I thought I should post to say I have posted a new Killjoys fic, just in time for the new season! It will undoubtedly be completely wrong about everything, much like last time!

One more ride I can't explain

Another Killjoys fic, woooooooooo!

I'm not going down on my knees begging you to adore me

Let's not talk about how long it has been since I posted fic, ok? But here is my first Killjoys fic:

He has nothing to do but wait for Fancy Lee to wake up.
Gen, post 1x10

Apart from Killjoys stuff I've been writing terrible Emmerdale drawerfic in my head, so just be glad I've posted something half-sensible.

I have also posted an ad on fivenights.com, but it hasn't been moderated yet. However if anyone's looking for a room to rent Mon-Fri in London, check out the Greenwich listings on the website from next week :D I am renting my spare room out to fund a trip to Japan which will be taking place next year. \o/ \o/ \o/ SUPER exciting but also very expensive.

I have a couple of weeks off work for craft stuff (yes, this is what I choose to do with my holidays, NO REGRETS) and decided I would take at least one day to comment on fics. That day is today because my hands hurt after spending all yesterday on hairpin lace (I am blogging about my craft stuff at my new FB page here: www.facebook.com/HanlondonCrafts)

And because I like reccing stuff, here are some recs from the fics I have commented on today:


Liminality by shecrows
Aramis/Porthos/Aramis, pre-series

Really lovely OT3 fic

The sunlight tells him Porthos has already risen, shutters long since opened out of a habit Aramis has never quite decided whether he loves or finds regrettable.

In quella parte del libro della mia memoria by cherryfeather

Aramis tries to keep his vow after the end of series 2. This is AMAZING and did a really good job making me feel for Aramis.

Pas de Quatre by zelda_zee
Eventual Aramis/Porthos/Athos/D'artagnan

Lovely fic that develops slowly towards OT4

Aramis looks at him sideways, arching a brow. “There is nothing Porthos and I can do for him. We do not have that power.” He studies Athos a moment, stroking his beard, then sighs in apparent frustration.

“You and Porthos do not?” d’Artagnan asks. “What do you mean by that?”

But Three's a Crowd by stardropdream
Aramis/Porthos progressing to Aramis/Athos/Porthos, modern au

“Not dancing?” Porthos teases and his smile lights up his face.

“No, thank you,” Athos says, quiet but quick, just in case Porthos gets the idea to ask him himself. Porthos shrugs and downs his little flute of champagne in a way that probably shouldn’t be charming – but then Porthos manages to be charming in most things.

They come crashing down by stardropdream
Aramis/Porthos, post s2

This fic just about killed me but then made it better, thank goodness

(He can remember the morning after Aramis leaves – the day warm but dulled, early autumn, the leaves turning and the cracks in the walls around his window letting in cooler morning air before the sun warms it; he remembers dressing for the day and realizing just how much of Aramis’ things had managed to migrate into his room without him fully realizing it, over the years. He touches at the blue sash he’ll wear to d’Artagnan’s wedding and he clamps down on the urge to long for something – for someone.)

You're Not Alone by misanthropiclycanthrope
Athos & Porthos gen

This fic is tagged emotional hurt/comfort which is really the best description of it - it is lovely.

It made Porthos’s heart ache.

If the most he could do was ensure Athos made it home safely, he would do it gladly and without complaint. The resistance he encountered at first was not unexpected, but Porthos was nothing if not stubborn. Athos had no choice but to surrender and accept the resolute support.

Musketeers Series 2 - Athos/Porthos-centric Episode Related Fics by Suzie_Shooter

I have loved Suzie_Shooter's fics since s1 and this whole series was great. The episode 10 fic was a fitting ending, considering the events of the episode.

His hand drifted to the pommel of his sword. He remembered Athos' only half-joking suggestion of arranging 'an accident on the road' for Rochefort. Something similar would surely be appropriate here. He could claim she'd drawn her pistol, that he'd acted in defence of the King.

The thought lingered throughout the wearying hours of the journey back, a half-formed intent that never quite became action. Porthos was not a man to strike down a woman in cold blood, but as far as he was concerned, this was no woman but rather a snake in the bosom.

Rivers of London

That What Brought Him Back by linpatootie
Peter/OMC, tentacles

Peter finds out what's behind the door in the Folly - love this, funny and actually pretty plausible (presuming the door thing has not been answered, I'm only 5 chapters into Foxglove Summer).

Nightingale had expressly forbidden him to, but what was a young constable to do when faced with a mysterious door and a mentor who had, so far, refused to tell him what was behind it?

Fast and Furious series

Generally Psychotic Behaviour by khaleesian
Dom/Brian, breathplay

This is an old fic and I had a vague memory of reading it after seeing the first film, so I went looking after seeing Fast and Furious 7. It is a pretty short fic that still manages to show just how much Dom takes over Brian's life.

“That was weird, huh?” Brian cursed himself for that weak opening. “That whole scene back there.”

Penny Dreadful

L'enfer, ce n'est pas les autres by cjmarlowe

This is a short fic but both of their voices are great (also yay new series soon!!)

For it's because the knives glance off him that Dorian is able to cut everyone else so deeply, and that's not something Ethan could live with forever.

Music video/RPF but not really

Mean Low Water by pyrimidine
Brandon/Charlize (Crossfire video)

The Crossfire video is here www.youtube.com/watch, and I recommend you watch it because a) the song is great and b) the fic won't make any sense without the video. The fic is great.

"You?" she yells over the sound of the generator exploding. There's a bright flash of orange and a confetti of sparks raining down everywhere.

"I know, right?" he yells back. "I'm really sorry."

 I have some entires planned around this fic (when I work out which Google Drive I've got them saved in, ahem) but for now, holy crap I have posted a thing:

Regret, or 14000 words of Rivers of London/Luther crossover casefic


I have been working on this fic for about two years (including a huuuuuge rewrite) and am so fucking glad to be done with it. 

Also I've been putting off reading Foxglove Summer until I finished this so I can now go read that yay!
hestia8: (Default)
 Is anyone interested in betaing a approx 16k Rivers of London/Luther crossover? I want to get it posted before the next book is out (I already redid it after book 4 came out and then stopped writing for ages while flat stuff was going on). It should work if you're only familiar with one of the canons - I can explain the other. Should be ready at some point this week. TIA! 
hestia8: (Default)


So, The Musketeers (BBC version) is great. I presume you’re all watching it but if not, it’s really worth it :D. There's lots of fighting and some really, really attractive men (yes, yes, there's plenty of other things to recommend it, but I'm currently separated from my Transporter/District 13 DVDs, give me a break). There’s no new episode this week thanks to the BAFTAs (damn you, BAFTAs!) so you’ve got time to a) catch up and/or b) read fic.

I myself am currently rewatching episode 1 while writing this post. Excellent choice of activities for the evening.

I actually managed to last about three episodes before going looking for fic, which is quite a long time for me. For a small fandom it’s steadily growing and already contains some really good stuff. This is the stuff I’ve enjoyed so far.

Sewn by Stardropdream


This is my favourite fic in the fandom so far. It’s a lovely look at Aramis and Porthos post 103, hot but with some nice character work.

He kisses him, distracting, one hand sliding down over Porthos’ naked chest, his sentiment meaning he must trace over every scar he encounters, and his other hand resting on his shoulder, to keep him down – the touch light so as not to hurt him.

One of Us by breathtaken


Foursome fic. Basically Aramis wants to seduce D’Artagnan and convinces the others it’s a good idea (there’s now a second part of this I haven’t read yet).

"And where am I going to get good wine from in a day and a half?" Aramis affects annoyance, but Porthos can see his eyes are suddenly alive. He’s long observed that for Aramis, the risk inherent in such a liaison actually enhances the pleasure, which for Porthos doesn’t really bear thinking about. "Like he would know the difference anyway."

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa by chaletian


Short Athos gen.

There is almost some poetic justice in being so judged. He can embrace it. Perhaps in this his earlier guilt will be expiated.

Prodigal Son by Suzie_Shooter


Fun gen fic

"Go home, D'Artagnan," Athos said coldly. "And stay there."

Not trusting himself to speak, D'Artagnan turned his back on them, mounted his horse and spurred it on, clattering out of the courtyard in silent fury and humiliation.

There was a pause.

"That was harsh," Porthos said, giving Athos a look that was half rebuke and half puzzlement.

"If a few hard words put him off, he's got no business being here in the first place," Athos said blandly.

My Brother’s Keeper/My Keeper’s Brother by sinistrocular

Gen fics about what the aftermath of Savoy, set directly after.



“He’s lucky to be alive.” Athos sat down on Aramis’s other side once again, neatly redressing the ghastly wound they both blamed for their friend’s stupor.

What they didn’t expect was the snort of air Aramis blew out of his nostrils. It seemed almost like it was meant to be a laugh if he’d had energy enough to do so.

Secrets and Skirmishes by dreamlittleyo


Athos/D’Artagnan with a good Athos voice

Tomorrow he will remember to be appalled with himself. Tonight he needs only this.

Afraid of Being Alone by Mackem


Nice Porthos/Aramis fic set after 103

“I didn’t mention innocence,” Porthos grins. “I don’t believe you were ever innocent, Aramis. I’ll bet you smirked before you smiled.”

Take my milk for gall by Chaletian


Really good Milady gen

She has never been a good woman. Virtue is not in her nature.

There is nothing on earth that we share by Chaletian



“A night-time assassination?” she replies, reaching out, lightly touching his hair. “How very tedious. You’ll suffer when I kill you, my dear Athos.”

Sure by deinonychus_1


Athos/D’Artagnan fluff, I really like this

“I was starting to think you’d never wake up.”

“I’m starting to wish I hadn’t.”

A Friend In Need by Suzie_Shooter

Athos/Porthos post ep 1

Porthos lifted his hat and scrubbed a hand through his hair, wishing Aramis was there. He was generally the one more suited to flights of philosophy.

Fair Trade by Suzie_Shooter


Athos/Porthos/Aramis fic, another really good one

"Suppose we'd better make it quick," Porthos sighed. "Or he'll be back looking for us."

"So are we doing ourselves, or each other?" Aramis enquired, and Athos snorted.

"And to think they call you the romantic one."

So, the weekend before last I saw Pacific Rim and it was amaaaaaaazing. I enjoyed it A LOT and have been swallowing all the fic I can since then, hurrah. On the whole, the fic for the film has been really good. I’ve only had one DNF, and even that was more because I couldn’t buy into the author’s headcanon than because it was a bad fic.

(fabulously, I last downloaded a bunch of fic two days ago, and I can already see some fics I haven’t read yet on Pinboard, so more fic, yay! Hopefully some of it will be Stacker/Herc because there is nowhere near enough of that around)

As a result of all this reading, here are some fic recs in no particular order:

lots of fic )

I must find the time to comment on these fics (hahahaha, time, yeah, whatever Han) but hope this is useful :) May well be back with another post once I've caught up on the next batch of fic. Does anyone want meta recs? Those seem to have been fairly comprehensively covered but let me know if you want some links. 

hestia8: (Default)
I have somehow fallen into writing a Rivers of London series/Luther crossover (yes on top of all the other wips, yes the list is still stupidly long, yes I am an idiot I know).

I imagine the audience for this fic is fairly tiny given the sizes of both fandoms, but if anyone out there is a) familiar with both canons and b) wouldn't mind some fic discussion, do let me know in the comments :) 

(hopefully will be posting some general meta/rambling about the Rivers of London series when I've read the third book)

Hoping to post some other fics soon - at the weekend maybe? One fic is getting pretty damn close to being posted without a title, and there's another I need to fix but that can be posted pretty quickly after that. I might also be doing a fic amnesty thing at some point, as even I have to admit some of these things aren't going anywhere and I'm trying to concentrate on getting some long fics done.

Oh, and while I'm here, I've got a pair of fics bookending Spooks series 9 (first one takes place in between s8 and 9, second immediately after s9 finishes). They've had a beta and I've made some changes but they could do with another read through to make sure things make sense - anyone interested? TIA :D 

ETA: BOOKENDING. ENDING. NOT BOOKMARKING. FFS. (took me 3 days to notice, though)
hestia8: (Default)
This one, people, is not even a Spooks fic.

The Hour fic, set post episode 4, I think (disclaimer - I haven't rewatched the show in quite some time).  

I think it's best you keep your distance )

hestia8: (Default)
Fic! Actual fic!


Spooks, post s9 AU. 

Reaching Out )
hestia8: (Default)
That little fic meme everyone's done:

1. Go to page 7 of your most recent WiP
2. Count seven lines down
3. Copy and paste the next seven lines of text

“I’ll explain in the car. We need to get out of here. You can walk, right?”

He can, just about, but he’s leaning heavily on her as they get out into the sunlight, and he closes his eyes against the brightness.

“Why couldn’t we wait in there?”

“Some Russians wanted to kill us, and you can call me crazy but I don’t like hanging around when that’s the case.”

“What happened to them?”

HAHAHAHAHA, it's always the Russians. The section this comes from might get junked entirely, tbh. I'm not sure it works anymore.
hestia8: (Default)
Title: Stuff and Nonsense
Notes: Stupid title, I know. But: AU fics that are being posted here and abandoned to the ether. Just noodling about. The Spooks ones are mostly delgaserasca’s fault (hope you feel better soon!), the Luther one is my weird brain. Counting these as fic amnesty as well, so if you fancy playing about with the ideas, go right ahead. And obviously, unbeta’d.
Ich war ein Roboter )
hestia8: (Default)
Fed up of not finishing fic. This has been in my head for a while so I decided to make myself post something today, even if it’s rubbish (and I’ll be honest, I can usually tell, but right now I wouldn’t even be sure this is made up of sentences). I need to rewatch some of this.
