    Summary

    One fucked-up bastard walks into a bar on Valentine’s Day, looking for a little action. They say opposites attract? But sometimes they're wrong.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fantastic crossover, amazing character voice, sex magic and self-destructive impulses and ebullient metaphors - the kind that perfectly suit the POV and dress up in local color, letting the reader revel in how much the writer enjoys their own gifts. What propels these two into each other's laps is fucked-up but ultimately cathartic rather than shattering. I don't know Hellblazer canon, and it didn't matter a whit - I picked up everything I needed to know from the narrative. Constantine's voice is a joy, and the portrait of Snape is ravishing to a reader who loves an unsalvageable disaster area. Great atmosphere and emotional smarts and raw sex.

    Summary

    “The last thing I want is to find, after all this time, that my best friend has some sort of alien bondage fetish. Surely even you can understand that.”

    “You’ve been in chains practically every week for the past six months,” says the Doctor, rubbing the bridge of his nose. “If it was that much of a thing, I’d have cracked well before now.”

    Two best friends snog their way across the universe.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    One of the Snarry fics that took me by the throat and yanked me into fandom. This is my vision of the background behind all Snape/Harry interactions, this twisted loathing and need and fragility on Snape's part and the sense of maturity, defiance, and resilience on Harry's. Ignore the typos - this fic's psychological and emotional intensity carry all before them. Talk about a perfect canon Snape, hot mess and cruel teacher and broken, desperate adolescent in a man's body, obsessed and at the brink of coming to pieces. I wish thisveryinstant had managed to write the sequel they had planned, but the unresolved ending works even so.

    Amazing Mordecai voice, wonderful IC bond between Mordecai and Viktor, perfect blend of sympathy with the constant awareness that these are professional cold-blooded killers. Also funny. I could visualize Mordecai perfectly throughout, and I wanted more, but the fic ends on the perfect note.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The Boosh meets real life. Garrideb gives this fic that delightful touch of madcap absurdity crucial to Booshiness, but it's the streak of heartbreak, and Vince being the king of flights of fancy, and Howard being Howard in the loveliest god-of-bookmarks way, that makes this shine. There's a tenderness here that goes all the way down and through until it touches magic, and yes, it made me cry.

    Summary

    Two sentient stellar beings, in close orbit around each other, exchanging plasma, in an epic romance that had taken millennia to consummate. One would envelope the other in a few million years, and then they would burst outward in a supernova, bringing their love to a spectacular end. Their light and their love would be ash, but not now, and not any time soon. Today, now, in the glory days of their love -- or so the Doctor described it -- their names swirled across their surfaces as sunspots, dots and whorls in the plasma. The written language of stars.

    Summary

    The engraving is a thin cursive font; elegant, but not pompous or flowery. Even in the light it's small, and John has to squint to see. It reads: Belonging to Harold R. Wren.

     

    John feels his mouth quirk up. 'Belonging to'. Not 'Property of'. It was the kind of distinction that Harold was always concerned with. Of course he'd have something engraved custom rather than put his name, even a false one, to a statement he didn't believe. Bear wasn't anyone's property. But he belonged somewhere. He belonged to someone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Thoughtful, precise writing, excellent characterization, often lovely and insightful, with a touch of humor. Great voices, including Shaw's humorous cameos. Yearning, belonging, and Harold's willingness to give John anything within his power. The sort of writer who makes me look forward to the next thing they post.
