    Bruce Wayne and Wally West have a long history together, going back to when Wally was a kid with a crush and Bruce was too busy being Batman to notice. Now they're both adults and in the wake of the revelations of the Justice Lords the two of them are growing closer together, even as the world (and Lex Luthor) conspire to keep them apart.

    Summary

    It began, or seemed to begin, with Jason.

    Usually that would have meant something in the order of fire and explosion and probably at least one gunshot wound, but for once (as Tim said, sourly), it wasn't actually Jason's fault.

    My Crack_vanrec: I love this story. Truly, madly, deeply, I love it because it's beautiful and brilliant, and the world these two authors have created is amazing. I put off reading it for a while after the Big Bangs were posted because I found the summary very complex and it almost seemed like it might be a crossover of some type. It's not. But I can honestly say, the summary does not do it justice.

    Here's what the story is: It's world-building at its best - I fell into this world, believed it, wanted to see more of it. Not everything is explained or immediately clear, but you need to be willing to let the story unfold. It's the Inception characters but somehow larger than life and still not quite on the right side of the law. It's the team coming together and learning about one another and fighting for something. It's about love and loyalty, tradition and technology, how society teaches us to take sides.

    You'll recognize aspects of the movie, but in completely different ways. Ariadne is forced to grow up and accept some hard truths because of her association with these men. Yusuf is a good friend, but can he be trusted? Dom, still learning how to leave Mal behind. Arthur and Eames trying to reconcile their differences with their strange compatibility; they should hate each other, but they're saving one another.

    I don't want to tell you too much, but honestly, read it for the image of Eames as a tattooed man out of time who wears the sins of the world on his flesh in order to remember, and Arthur, who is just broken enough to be able to see beyond the technology Eames hides behind ... it's the kind of screwed-up love story that makes me ache in every way possible for everyone involved. It's absolutely something you should read. I can't recommend this one highly enough.

    Summary

    “You’re a bit like a bulldog, you know that?” Milt tells him in one of his less charitable moments. “You just go for the jugular, and clench your teeth around your prey’s throat, and you do not let go, not until you get to the bottom of things. You just dig, and you dig, and—” And, well, Milt can’t have him digging just anywhere. He leaves Russ a trail of his own making to follow.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I like the way this story captures that element of the buddy relationship that doesn't quite work, how they misread each other, how they grate on each other, how neither of them can give up and trust when they really need to. Relationships are this bloody complicated.

    Summary

    Rodney's Antarctica is a lot like Siberia in that it's full of scientists who work 16-hour days and bathe once a week (twice when they're feeling social), and who would slit your throat for a fresh banana. Also, you can't go for a walk without a survival kit, but that's fine - Rodney's never really been an outdoorsy person.

    Summary

    Four hours—that’s how long it takes after the Daedalus II drops off the new contingent of baby scientists and Marines before Rodney starts taking bets on who’ll be the first to get into Derek Hale’s pants.

     

    *

    A month ago John's team rescued a former runner named Derek Hale. He's great to have on offworld missions--he's like a danger magnet; nobody else gets so much as a splinter. But there's just something different about him. John can't quite put his finger on it....

    Teen Wolf/SGA fusion where Derek is a runner (and a werewolf), and the expedition takes the long way round to finding that out.
