Welcome!

This is Shirasade‘s fic and vid recs collection, starting 2015. (Unfortunately my recs from 2005 onwards were hosted on Delicious and went bust with the site, although I found an unsorted bookmarks list from 2010.)

Because I moved from Delicous to Tumblr and now WordPress, the older posts don’t look quite so pretty.

Torque, by gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) – Fast and the Furious (2001) [Archive of Our Own]

Letty went out to the garage, sneaking up toward the door, not totally sure why she felt the need to sneak, but doing it anyway. The door was open only a sliver; she couldn’t see anything at all, just the light from the bare bulb overhead, a section of the wall with the trophies. Then she saw the back of Dom’s head, but it was…weird. Like he was doing something physical. Not just standing there talking.

Kissing. That’s how his head and neck moved, like he was kissing someone. When he shifted she could see Brian on the other side, his hands on Dom’s chest. And Dom was kissing him and laughing.

I’m a sucker for outside POV, but this is more of a Letty fic, and I love it!

The only soul I have I stole from you, by gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) – Kings (TV 2009) [Archive of Our Own]

We take lovers into our souls like we take water into our throats, Jack thought, we drink in their kisses and breathe their breath. We fall in love and we’re unmade. “Have a little faith,” David said.

This takes canon (why oh why did they make them antagonists?!?) and fixes it in the most stunning way. I adore this Jack and the way he finds himself again.

Count Sheep, by yeaka – Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own] | https://archiveofourown.org/

“Uhura said you did it for her,” Jim points out.

“That was a different situation. I was in complete control of what I was doing.” When Jim raises an eyebrow—somehow, he’ll make Spock lose control?—Spock repeats tightly, “I could not guarantee my actions.”

After “Into Darkness” Jim has trouble sleeping – Uhura thinks that Spock can help. I love how this can’t be any other version of Kirk and Spock than the Kelvin timeline – and it gets hot as burning.

He tries not to think about the tiny apartment around him and how it might become his home instead. It’s much too cold, the air too thick, the amenities painfully behind what he’s used to. But at least he’ll have Jim, so it will be bearable.

Spock in a touching missing scene from “The City on the Edge of Forever”.

[bsg] distance enough – let me run through a field in the night — LiveJournal

It takes Kara a full, careful year to cut Lee Adama out of her life, and less than a minute to let him back in.

Canon-divergent vaguely after season 2, this is a perfect little thing – because while Apollo and Starbuck always worked, Lee and Kare were a different story…

Minute – Chapter 1, by LuvEwan – Star Wars – All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]

Later he would try to remember exactly what happened that afternoon, after he promised Qui-Gon absolute forgiveness. He should have memorized every detail about that moment, because it was the passage of one life into another, a banquet after long fasting, the satiation of a hunger he had not recognized, before.

This fic straddles the uncomfortable line that’s unavoidable in a realistic depiction of a relationship between teacher and student, yet it somehow manages to be incredibly readable and touching.

A Second Heart, by LuvEwan – Star Wars – All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]

Qui-Gon is not worried for him exactly—Obi-Wan has been ready for a long time, at least two years before the Naboo mission—but he cannot shake the idea that Obi-Wan should be with him.

He has lost so much, even in surviving. The medics on Naboo have taken his heart and the Council have taken his Padawan.

A lovely post-TPM what-if, in which Qui-Gon survives but feels changed…
