fic recs:
It's All So Clear to Me Now by fools_game (Leverage)
PG; Parker POV, background Alec/Eliot and Nate/Sophie
Summary: Parker sees more than some people think.
Strong team/family vibe, great Parker voice!
The first time she fell asleep at Hardison’s she woke up scared out of her brain and nearly took Eliot’s eye when he came to wake her. Because she’d fallen asleep on the couch, and when she woke up she was in an unfamiliar bed, under the blankets, with no shoes on. She’d fallen asleep with other people around. They’d moved her while she slept, and she hadn’t noticed, hadn’t even stirred, and she freaked so hard she was fleeing through the lobby before she realised she was barefoot, and then she had to go back up to get her shoes. Alec gave her coffee as she walked gingerly back in, and there was an omelette waiting for her, and Eliot was hardly smirking at all, so she stayed for breakfast.
Come at the King by VanaTuivana (The Wire)
m/m; PG-13; Omar Little, with cameos from De’Londa Brice, baby!Namond, and Bird; pre-canon; 2,655 words
Summary: Omar Little be who he be, and ain't nobody come at him.
While seaching for Namond fic I instead found this gem and got sucked in from the very first line. Very compelling character study!

Ordo ad Fratres Faciendum by [personal profile] sholio (SGA)
(x-posted from genrec); PG-13; Ronon, Rodney, John, Teyla, Torren; set late S.5; 20,800 words;
Summary: A jumper crash separates the team on a wilderness planet, and they aren't alone.
"So. You and Ronon."
Rodney looked up from the video game console. "Wow, subtle."
"Are you guys, uh ..." John gestured with the game controller. He wasn't sure whether to finish with okay or fighting or capable of working together or what, so he just let it trail off into silence, though when Rodney's eyes went wide John realized that he might ought to have been a little more specific.
"We're not sleeping together, Sheppard."
"I didn't think you were!" Although it would, come to think of it, explain a few things.
Daily Mechanics by sixpences (Fullmetal Alchemist)
gen; PG; Winry, Paninya;
Summary: There's a lot to get used to in a new town.
Winry and Paninya, making new lives for themselves in Rush Valley. Great friendship fic.

Who Needs Enemies by theanonsisters (Deep Space Nine)
gen; Julian Bashir and others
Summary: Who needs enemies when you've got friends.
Smooth, elegantly cut, and most of all complex. Hm, kind of like the good doctor himself. :)

A Tall Tale by [profile] maichan808 (Big Fish (movie))
Summary: It's not the story, it's how you tell it...
Incredibly evocative of the movie. I had a major emotional response to this vid and looking at the comments I'm not the only one. Can't even put my finger on the mechanics of it.

Teal'c P.I. by Nibikko (SG-1)
summary: Teal'c's suggestion to Martin Lloyd in episode "200" for a Jaffa detective television series comes to life in this fan video.
Heee... pure glee in vid form!

Save Chuck (Chuck)
This is great fun to watch. It uses footage throughout the first three seasons but cut so out of context that it's practically spoiler free. I can imagine it'd make a really nice recruiter vid. Sooo... if you're curious and have no idea what the show is about, check out this vid to get an idea?
(And I can't get enough of that soundtrack, even though it gets used a *lot* in fanvids).

One Piece MMV (One Piece)
Don't know the story, but I like the effective way the manga panels are used to convey movement and time flow. And I really like the mood created by the pics and the soundtrack. Very interesting.

Doctor Hoo by pu-sama (Doctor Who)
All the doctors... as owls. Cute & pretty. The funny thing is, even though I never watched the show I recognized some of them, through fannish osmosis.

Heee~ to the owl Doctors!

That One Piece vid was pretty awesome, I'm fascinated by vids using manga images instead of anime. Especially for a series with such dynamic art, it works pretty well!

(Since it is One Piece, I am obliged to mention that if you have the time/inclination to either read the manga or watch the anime, it is well worth it. It's my favorite manga, and I honestly believe one of the most fantastic adventure stories ever told, in any medium; Oda Eiichirou, the mangaka, has an unparalleled gift for storytelling. Which is also why it's made me cry more times than any other series/book/TV show ever.)

(Second note that if you do read it, I'd avoid rewatching that vid, as it's mostly about events that occur hundreds of chapters in and thus somewhat spoilery once you know the chars...)

I keep hearing good things about One Piece, I guess I really have to check it out and see for myself. But, the whole 'hundreds of chapters' part is really a bit daunting. ;) I'll probably go with the anime for sheer practicality... I need to practice my Japanese listening skills a lot, anyway.

I'll probably check out 12 Kingdoms first; the art looks appealing and it's a lot shorter, I think?

The OP anime is awesome - well, the first hundred or two eps at least; their budget has fallen off recently, from what I've seen. But the beginning is definitely worth it - I got into the series from the anime. It starts off a little - okay a lot - ridiculous, but give it time and it will completely capture your heart and soul.

But the length is daunting, yes ^^ 12K is much shorter - it's about 2 seasons, 45 eps I think? Something like that. And it's a gorgeous series in every sense.
