damkianna: A cap of Jinora from The Legend of Korra, giving advice. (Then she jumped into a volcano.)
And look at that: it's next week already! Rarewomen stories were revealed on Sunday - [personal profile] idriya and I were at our parents' for most of the day, as our Mother's Day arrangements involved helping our mother out with a variety of gardening tasks. So I haven't really had the chance to dig in; but I did have enough time to read my gift!

Push Back (1146 words) by havocthecat
Fandom: Push (2009)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Nick Gant/Kira Hudson
Characters: Kira Hudson, Emily Hu, Cassie Holmes, Nick Gant
Additional Tags: POV First Person, Female Character of Color, Canonical Character Death, Women Being Awesome, Background Pairing, Background Het, Canon Het Relationship
Summary: Kira and Emily are supposed to meet up with Nick and Cassie, but when they don't show, Kira and Emily have to find out what happened to them.

I had guessed through present-shaking that I'd been lucky enough to get a Push story, but not that [personal profile] havocthecat was my author! Obviously I wish this had been at least 15k longer, but it's an absolutely wonderful post-movie story about Kira and Emily reconnecting and saving Nick and Cassie from Division, and I LOVE IT. KIRA. EMILY. KIRA. Rarewomen is just the best thing ever.

And of course I also wrote a story:

Lost and Found (9503 words) by Damkianna
Fandom: Justified
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Rachel Brooks/Tim Gutterson
Characters: Rachel Brooks, Tim Gutterson, Raylan Givens, Art Mullen, Original Characters
Additional Tags: Case Fic, Communication Failure
Summary: Rachel is late. Rachel's side of a casefic, Rachel/Tim; no spoilers for Season 5. Canon-typical profanity, some violence (not graphic).

For the stupendous and gratifyingly effusive [livejournal.com profile] kalisgirl/[archiveofourown.org profile] kalisgirl, who asked for Rachel with a side of Rachel/Tim. I added Justified to my offers this year at the very last minute, seeing that it was a needy fandom and feeling guilty - because I do know the show, even though the idea of writing fic for it kind of terrified me. And then, of course, I matched on it! Which should by all rights have been a disaster, because the kinds of stories that show tells aren't anywhere near my usual wheelhouse; but despite all my anxieties, I had a wonderful time writing this (and rewatching episodes of Justified while I was at it).

I probably won't have enough free time to put together a recs post until at least this weekend, and probably everybody will already have devoured all the stories by then; but I have the fandom categories for Babylon 5 and Stargate and SHIELD and TNG open in tabs, and I am so excited.

I swear, time is just SPRINTING past me these days ("on your left!").

... That I'm making that joke at all means, yes, after a long, awkward wait that involved a lot of eps of SHIELD piling up, my sister and I finally saw Cap 2, and then (mostly) caught up on SHIELD. Spoilery for both. )

We haven't watched 1.20 yet, but let's just say I'm not feeling any real urgent need to. Sigh.

Aside from that, I'm mostly just accumulating TV I have heard is good and then utterly failing to watch any of it, because: time. I did, however, manage to finish my [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen fic - early, even, which hardly ever happens, and is the absolute last thing I was expecting given the fandom involved. \o/ (Intimidating fandom, afraid to offer it but I did at the last minute, aaaaand MATCHED, because of course.) And someone posted a gift for me, which I have done my best to shake because that's how I roll and OMG SO EXCITED. :D :D :D :D :D I always dread signing up for exchanges because I never know what to ask for, but every time I get HOPELESSLY AWESOME GIFTS.

I wish I could read it already; but judging by these past couple months, it'll be next week before I know it, anyway.

Dear Rarewomen author ... )

Again, thank you so much for signing up for Rarewomen, and I'm sorry this letter got so unbelievably long. I hope you have fun writing a story, and I can't wait to read it!

I realize that April must actually have happened, but I feel like I blinked at the end of March and now it's summer. D:

The most interesting thing first, so you do not have to scroll through the beast this post is going to become: Rarewomen 2013 recs! A:tLA, A:tLoK, The Avengers, Burn Notice, The Borgias, The Mummy, Push (2009). )

And I wrote i do not ask for any crown (A:tLA, Yangchen backstory) for none other than [personal profile] ambyr, which was the best assignment I could possibly have hoped for; I'm just sorry I couldn't manage more than one fic, because three out of four fandoms were ones I could have written for and all her prompts were beautiful. ♥

Onward to ALL THE TV:

Once Upon a Time, a bunch of eps. )

Revolution, 1.11-1.14 )

The Borgias, 3.01-3.03 )

I am also watching Vikings, but don't have much to add except that I find the pacing really, really odd, which I assume is a function of the History Channel writing it like - well, like a historical overview instead of like a TV show. I understand it, but it's still weird.

Also, Defiance, 1.01-1.02. )

The more time I have, the less I use it for anything I should be using it for. /o\

A few days ago, I finally sat down and watched Tomorrow, When the War Began (2010). ) So I wish I could rec it for the ladies, but it's hard to when it's oblivious and the premise is so racefail.

Would it be weird to write like four stories for my [livejournal.com profile] rarewomen recip? Because: great exchange assignment, or GREATEST EXCHANGE ASSIGNMENT? I am SO EXCITE.
