Fandom: Yuri!!! On Ice
Title: Without fear, without metaphor
Pairing/Character Focus: Yuuri Katsuki/Viktor Nikiforov
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] reginar
What makes this a gem: One of the most interesting facets of Yuuri and Viktor's relationship is the cultural and language barrier, yet there are so few fics that explore it. This is my favourite of the lot. Although a work in progress, what's been posted thus far is both tender and full of tension, an expert exploration of what words mean in this relationship. The writing is lush and accompanied each chapter by art, which ranges from beautiful digital paintings to humourous photomanips. This is a highly literate work which tackles themes of miscommunication in a mature and engaging manner, and worth the time and attention of a good, close read.

Fandom: Power Rangers (MMPR 1993 - Zeo 1996)
Title: A Co-ed Naked Jungle Adventure
Pairing/Character Focus: Kimberly Hart/Tommy Oliver (primary), Adam Park/Kat Hillard (secondary), others (f/f, m/f)
Author: Cheryl Roberts (short bio on Fanfiction.net)
Summary: Stranded in an otherdimensional jungle, naked and powerless, the Rangers, along with Billy and Kimberly, must prove their worth to reclaim the Zeo Crystal.

What makes this a gem: Cheryl was one of the BNFs in the original Power Rangers fandom, and her stories give you everything: action, character development, great writing, and lots of romance. And, as in this story, lots of HAWT sex. She was one of the first writers I discovered, and "Co-ed" was the first adult Rangers story I've ever read -- so yes, you could say it's special to me. :-) Cheryl also was extremely kind and encouraging and ultimately responsible that I started writing Rangerfic myself.

The plot is exactly as given in the summary -- the Zeo team (Tommy, Kat, Rocky, Adam and Tanya), along with ex-Rangers Billy and Kimberly (who is also Tommy's ex-girlfriend), get stuck on a strange planet, in a jungle, completely naked. They need to pass through this jungle, relying only on their wits, in order to reach the Zeo Crystal -- key to their powers, and their only way back home. It's not just a matter of survival, though; the teens must also face their inner demons in order to sort out their lives. Lots of sex ensues, along with exciting action and some wonderful character development. :-) It's a true fandom classic!

(Note:The setting owes more to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie from 1995 than the TV series which followed the year after; it might help to watch it first if you haven't already. :P)

Story Title: Do You Want To Be With Somebody Like Me?
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Link(s): AO3
Summary: Moriarty's return has only granted Sherlock a temporary reprieve from punishment over his actions regarding Magnussen, and when a mission involving Sebastian Moran crosses Mycroft's desk it seems to be the perfect way for Sherlock to pay his penance. This particular mission requires Sherlock to have a paramour, however, but Mycroft has that taken care of in the form of Molly. What begins as a ruse to fool Moran slowly becomes something more real, though, and as this mission takes Sherlock and Molly across the globe chasing after a ghost he begins to realize that there is much more that he can lose this time if he makes another wrong decision.
Warnings: Mild non-graphic violence, language
Characters: Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, Anthea & Sebastian Moran
Pairings: Sherlock Holmes/Molly Hooper
When I Started: June 24th, 2015
How I Lost My Shit: I think I was a tad overambitious when I started plotting out the end game after Prague and it scared me.
How I Finished My Shit: Panic & pride. Once I finished “No More Regrets” I took a good hard look at what else I could finish, and as I’d written four scattered chapters towards the end I decided this would be fic number 2. I managed to write the five chapters I needed to write all in one day, actually, and I think the story turned out well by ending the adventure in Washington DC as opposed to going further with it.

Recap and Discussion for 4 x 19 – Between the Darkness and the Light



We see Sheridan talking to Franklin and there’s a second of WTH? Then you realize that he is drugged and is talking to his interrogator. Apparently the first stuff they did didn’t work so they have settled on something more pharmacological but still Sheridan doesn’t tell them anything. He still shies away from naming anyone. They him drug more in trying to make him submit.



Garibaldi is telling a Mars resistance man he thinks he knows where they might be keeping Sheridan when he’s surrounded by Mars resistance, knocked out and hooded.



After the opening credits, Garibaldi is brought before Number One, Franklin and Lyta. Number One is ready to kill him but Franklin says let him talk. Garibaldi tells his tale of woe and no one believes him. Number says shoot him. He asks Lyta to scan him and she finds that he has P12 blocks in place and he tells her to do a deep scan, dismissing the risk because Number One is going to kill him if he can’t prove he’s telling the truth. She finds that he speaks the truth. When Number One moves to shoot him, Franklin stops her and Lyta grabs a gun and gets everyone’s attention, then she turns on Number One and shows her what was in Garibaldi’s mind. Number is convinced.



Ivanova and Marcus are aboard a White Star and they are against two earth ships. Ivanova delivers one of her speeches and blows up the ships after the crew escape pod off. They pick up the pods to take them in, some will end up jailed while others will join the Resistance.



Garibaldi uses his old mars contacts to find Sheridan’s prison. Number One says they can help get them TO the prison but then the three are on their own.

Meanwhile back on B5, Lennier comes to tell Delenn that the Advisory Council and the League of Non-aligned Worlds are having a meeting. He and Delenn crash this meeting. Londo, G’kar and the league say they want to help Sheridan because he risjed much to help protect them from the Shadow allies. They vote as soon as Delenn comes in and then they tell her that they’ve voted to assemble a fleet as a show of support. She is moved by this.



Ivanova finds out that not all of their new defectors are real defectors and that Clark has a fleet of ships using Shadow tech to ambush them. She and Marcus decide to run into the ambush then press on toward earth.



Franklin, Lyta and Garibaldi encounter 2 guards as they try to get into the prison but they kill them, not before Garibaldi is stabbed in the back.



Franklin stitches Garibaldi up while Lyta hides the bodies. They press on, wearing their old EF uniforms.



Ivanova tells the Agamemnon of her plan and even though the captain protests, he says okay. Marcus insists that she rest.



Franklin et al. reach the prison and Garibaldi talks them inside, using his ‘hero of earth’ status. Some fighting and some teep power subdue the cell guards and they find John. He is drugged, but they free him while we see blood on Garibaldi’s uniform.



They have to fight their way out, which proves fairly easy. Sheridan unloads his rifle into one man and gives Garibaldi the hairy eyeball as well.


Ivanova and Marcus arrive at Sector 300, where the ambush is supposed to be with their fleet. A bunch of jumpgates open and these butt ugly Earth Force meets Shadow ships come through. Ivanova knows they are in trouble because Shadow tech can damage the White Stars. A battle ensues and they finally defeat the fleet but as Ivanova turns to speak to Marcus, a huge hunk of metal comes right through the bridge and we see Marcus carry Susan away, then we see a shuttle leaving the wreck.



Sheridan is reunited with Delenn and they got to see Ivanova.




Susan asks how bad, and Delenn tells her she can only last a few days. She tells Sheridan she wants him to do something for her.



Sheridan boards the Agamemnon to take charge, where he will leave the campaign to Earth.

Quote:

Susan Ivanova’s speech to the captain who asks who she is:
"Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander, daughter of Andrei and Sofie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance, and the boot that is gonna kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart. I am death incarnate and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me."



*



Questions:

1. Did this feel hurried after the previous episode?

2. Was Susan softening toward Marcus?

3. Did the prison seem a little too easy?

4. Did you think John might shoot Garibaldi?

5. Do you wonder who the fake defectors are?

Link: Depends on party
Location: Anywhere in the world if you're a UK citizen
Deadline: Varies, but there will be some this autumn
Time estimate: 15 minutes
Requirements: money / mental / personal information / decision-making
Anything else: It may be a while until the next general election, but local elections can make a difference to people's lives. Joining an imperfect party and campaigning for change from within is usually easier and more effective than starting a new party from scratch or trying to get an independent elected. Being a member for a few months before the election gives you opportunities to help influence things when it comes, whether that's by voting within the party for a particular person to be the party candidate for your area, putting forward or voting on topics for policy discussions and campaigns, or by getting information about ways to volunteer and increase voter turnout.

Gestalt (Leverage)
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] Poetry, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] Shmaylor
Summary: The thing about magic is that you can’t do it by yourself. No one person has enough magic in them to do even a minor casting – you need a coven. Parker knew that about magic, which was why she couldn’t trust it.

Cleave (Steven Universe (Cartoon))
written by [archiveofourown.org profile] thingswithwings, performed by [archiveofourown.org profile] susan_voight
Summary: “Tell me a story,” Steven asks, as he shuts his eyes. Garnet, as far as she has the capacity for it, is surprised; Steven is seventeen, and while he still has a tendency towards whimsy, he hasn’t asked for this particular indulgence for years. Not since he was a lot smaller.
Garnet feels a little angry at herself for not having noticed that earlier; she feels regretful, too, that she can never seem to see any part of Steven’s adulthood coming in advance.

A few days later, she talks to McGonagall about the loss of Sirius.
