The best tropes and smashing execution! Marriage, makeouts, amnesia, undercover, pining, fighting, aliens! 10 most excellent tropetastic Clark Kent/Bruce Wayne fics.

Sometimes, Always, Never by Liodain (A naïve Clark Kent becomes acquainted with Bruce Wayne -- and his excellent taste in suits.)
Just a Formality by FabulaRasa (Bruce and Clark get married, for reasons. And then they fall in love.)
Body Double by Mithen (Bruce Wayne doesn't know if he's the playboy billionaire, or the hit man who killed him and assumed his identity. While he is determined to remain in the shadows, it's Clark Kent who forces him back into the light.)
Undercover by Mithen (Clark and Bruce keep running into each other while in various disguises for separate investigations.)
Speaking in Code by Mithen (Clark and Bruce must go undercover at a newlywed resort to try and stop an assassination attempt. Hijinks, UST, and reluctant making out ensue.)
When in Rome by Mithen (Superman and Batman are invited to a grand celebration in honor of negotiating a peace treaty on an alien planet. As it turns out, however, this planet's customs for such celebrations are a little different from Terran ones.)
Only Human by saltedpin (Clark temporarily loses his powers, and he is somehow an even bigger danger magnet than Lois in this state. And Batman comes to his rescue every time.)
Love, Changing Tenses by susiecarter (Bruce doesn't go to the funeral so he can make friends with Mrs Kent, and definitely not so he can posthumously fall for Clark. But it's fine. He can handle it.)
tell all the truth (but tell it slant) by susiecarter (It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often doesn't help as much as you might think.)
Whoever Falls First by steals_thyme (Bruce teaches Clark how to fight.)

Murder on the Poirot Express

Jun. 26th, 2017 08:35 pm
chantefable: ([justified] count down from ten)
[personal profile] chantefable
Oh what the Dickens, just watched the trailer for the new Murder on the Orient Express after reading [personal profile] osprey_archer's post about it.

Now, it goes without saying that David Suchet succeeded in making Hercule Poirot his opus magnum and everything else is a feeble makeshift, but I actually struggle to articulate what rubs me the wrong way here:

Is it Poirot's blondness and the puffy size of his 'fashionable' "I am a slumming member of the Russian royal family" moustache?
Is it the general 'Lord Voldemort's excellent vacation' cartoonish sinister-ness of the atmosphere?
Is it that Johnny Depp really isn't the little black dress of cinema?
Is it the fact that the trailer uses 'Believer' by Imagine Dragons as theme music?
(Seriously. I mean, in that case they could have cast Dolph Lundgren as Poirot. Go all the way.)

Nothing against Sir Kenneth Branagh, but there are plenty of other things he could have done. I keep hoping he's going to make more Shakespeare. Miss Marple would have been bearable, but Poirot? Unnecessary.
chantefable: ([txt] it's research)
[personal profile] chantefable
During the Dionysius dramatist competition, in 431 B.C. (yes, I hasten to update you on such a clearly topical event), Euripides came last.

Seriously. He was the third.

Sophocles came second, and Euphorion came first.

Now, because arithmetic is some shady mojo-jojo and the results of Greek fanfic fest from 2500 years ago weren't the most interesting thing ever to me, I kind of assumed that Euphorion was Euphorion, poet and grammarian. Big mistake, since that poet Euphorion was born around 275 B.C., and although time-travelling just for the sake of leaving long-dead celebrities like Sophocles and Euripides in the dust totally sounds like something a Greek poet would do... I have to admit it is somehow unlikely.

Who ARE you, Εὐφορίων ??? )

In case anyone has heard anything about this Euphorion's works, their possible titles and subjects, or anything about him, please tell me. If you haven't, tell me anyway. ([personal profile] sineala, maybe [personal profile] lysimache knows?)

Batman/Green Lantern multicanon stories: a Justice League ship with space diplomacy, billionnaire vigilantism, pining, hook-ups, feelings, families and communication.

A Time and a Place by FabulaRasa (Hal and Bruce have a casual NSA thing going on, until the lines start to blur. And families, as Hal observes, are complicated things.)
Not on the Spreadsheet by FabulaRasa (Batman and Green Lantern have an excellent arrangement: sex with no strings, to help them forget the people they really want.)
How Batman Made the Housemaid Cry by Fabula Rasa (Bruce and Alfred have the world's most awkward conversation.)
Cold Comfort by FabulaRasa (Bruce and Hal must share body heat, and SAT stories.)
Beyond by FabulaRasa (Hal finds his courage, and Bruce finds something better.)
Best Sex of His Life by FabulaRasa (It wasn't exactly like it was a date, you know.)
Sex Tape by FabulaRasa (The high-resolution detail on Bruce Wayne's sex tape is really something to see.)
Cockblocked by FabulaRasa (Bruce and Hal are just trying to get it on like any two normal people trying for a casual hook-up. It isn't their fault that life (and Barry, and Dick) keeps getting in the way.)
What Not to Wear to a Wedding at Wayne Manor by FabulaRasa (Dick and Barbara are getting married, and Hal had ONE JOB. Ending up with a date with Batman was definitely not where he would have predicted his evening was going.)
Aliens Made Us Do It by FabulaRasa (Bruce and Hal run into a little bit of cultural difficulty on an off-world mission. This was really, really not supposed to be Bruce Wayne's wedding day.)
Seventeen Minutes by FabulaRasa (Kyle Rayner's enthusiastic lust takes a much more sinister turn.)
How Batman Learned That Family Vacations Are Almost Always Never A Good Idea by FabulaRasa (The farmhouse had seemed like such a good idea when Bruce had bought it. And for the first twenty-four hours, it had been.)
On Fridays We Wear Taupe by FabulaRasa (Hal has suffered a serious injury, but his recovery is not going well, and Bruce has to step in and take over his care. Because where could that go wrong?)
Paying the Price by FabulaRasa (Hal's past comes back to haunt him, and he needs a favor from the last person in the world he wants to ask, with unforeseen consequences.)

I am bouncing and doing a happy dance!

[community profile] nightonficmountain, a Midsummer small fandom fic exchange, has just gone live, and I have been lucky to receive THREE gifts. That's right!

Three lovely, amazing presents, all of them for the Master and Commander aka Aubrey-Maturin fandom. (I have guessed that Master & Commander would be the fandom I'd get my present for, but THREE presents? O frabjous day!) One art and two fics!

The artwork is MARVELLOUS, minimalist pen-and-link with delicious linework, Jack, Stephen, a hammock, and a SLOTH. A Slothful Interlude with napping!

The fics are WONDERFUL.

There is Brother, Soul, Joy, a truly subtle SOUL BOND fic with pitch perfect prose and characterisation, every inch the Aubrey-Maturin but with even more connection and friendship and love. The writing is musical and exquisite. I am enamored.

There is On the Possibilities of Sail, which is a fantastic AU with adventure and SEA MONSTERS. With actual serpents, and a happy ending, and puns. It is so deliciously dense with maritime adventure information and sailing facts seamlessly woven in the fantasy framework! I am in love.

If you like AGE OF SAIL, ADVENTURE, and SLOTHS, come look at these lovely gifts and shower them with kudos! Because they are gorgeous.
