Glee

Blessed Not Lucky by [personal profile] gloss Rec
900 words. PG. Mercedes/Quinn + Lauren. "A time to mourn/A time to cast away stones, a time to gather stones together"

Neat post-apocalyptic fic. I'm really curious about this world.

Son of a Preacher Man

Sweet Caroline by [personal profile] mjules Rec+
2600 words. G. A stomach full of fireflies, a house full of secrets.

Oh wow. *_* I would never have found this if not for going through the trans tag to find stuff for my master list, aince while I'm vaguely familiar with the song, it's not something I'd have otherwise clicked on, but I'm so glad I did because it was amazing.

Stargate: Atlantis

Dreaming I'm Alive by [personal profile] cesare Rec
21,000 words. When John is exposed to the Iratus retrovirus from "Conversion" again, the team bands to help. But there are some things John has to face alone.

This was written for [community profile] sgareversebang and based on this really cool drawing by [personal profile] chkc. This is John/Rodney, but the story itself is mostly gen. I loved the alien species and the details about John's transformation.

Ugly Betty

Ugly Betty Season Five: New York, New York by [livejournal.com profile] yahtzee63 Rec+
Series. Takes off from canon during the show's penultimate episode, "The Past Presents The Future." Betty is about to leave New York for an exciting new life in London ... but fate has other plans. To Daniel's surprise, so does he.

This is the first "virtual season" of a show I've ever read, though I know it's a fairly common thing. Mainly I don't read gen that much, so I'm not as interested in it for other shows, but for Ugly Betty it's perfect. I had already read and loved one post-canon UB fic by this author, so when I happened across this virtual season five, I knew I had to read it. It is everything I could hope for in an Ugly Betty fic and really feels like it could actually be canon. All the wacky soap opera plot twists are here and so well done. One thing I really like about this series is that the whole season is not "will they or won't they?" Instead, once they realise they have feelings for each other, the problem is finding time to actually be together (and even that doesn't last the whole "season"). I love that Alexis is brought back, and also YOGA. My favorite minor character. And Yoga/Claire is strongly hinted at here, hopefully it will be more than hinted at by the end of the series.

Yes, that's the one drawback. This is still a WiP. There are currently twelve fics, over 150,000 words total, but it's not done (I'm guessing the author means it to be a twenty-ish episode season, as the show was). While the fics were originally being posted on an almost weekly basis, the last one was posted June 8th and the author seems to have discovered X-Men: First Class in the meantime, so I hope that doesn't mean they'll drop this. D: *crosses fingers* Anyway, I highly recommend it as-is, even if it never does get finished. But I have used the AO3 subscribe function (first time using it!), so I'll be notified when/if more is posted. (I hope eventually we'll be able to modify subscriptions so we can subscribe to just one fandom from an author, or one series/fic/tag/etc.)
