    Summary

    When Voldemort came to kill Harry, Lily met him with a SIG Sauer pistol she bought at a pawn shop. Seems Dark Lords die as easily as anyone else when you empty two clips into them.

    Hailed as the savior of the Wizarding world, Lily has a live baby, a dead husband, the personal enmity of most of the Dark Lord's followers, and not the slightest idea how to put her life back together.

    Phoenixes have it easy. Burn, die, rise from the ashes.

    For humans it's a bit different. Sort of.

    You know, until this fic, I'd never actually considered how Tom Riddle might feel about being little Ginny Weasley's sounding board and sympathetic pen friend for all those months...and now I almost feel sorry for Tom!

    Summary

    No species is all good or all evil. The tok'ra like to believe they are the "good" side of the onac race--the symbiotes who developed into the goa'uld. However, the tok'ra never mention Shamash or Samas, the ancient Sumerian god who was really one of the early queens. She (or really Samas prefers to be called a he) remembers the onac before the corruption of Ra, and he tried to lead his people back to a life in the water. He failed. However, thousands of years later, one gunnery sergeant on a suicide mission stumbled into a South American river, and Samas found he had another chance. The SGC and later Atlantis gave Samas a chance to save his people and make a few changes for the better in this universe. Samas once allowed Ra to take everything away from him. This time Samas is going to make sure his people are strong enough to stand up to any enemy. And to serve that end, he's going to make sure that those that he trusts--Tony, John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, Elizabeth, Major Teldy, Radek, Miko, Kyli and others--have the power to combat anyone who tries to take Atlantis from them.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a powerful little piece about Peggy Carter and Susan Pevensie, and their lives post-canon. I really like the idea that Susan's refusal to discuss Narnia was not some sort of moral failing, but a personal choice to accept that she was too old to return and move forward with her life in the world that was left to her. I also love the idea that Susan's experience with Narnian warfare makes her an ideal candidate for the SSR/SHIELD.

    (Now if only, we could see her up against/mentoring Clint...)

    Summary

    "I'm driving first," Sally said. "Guv can take over after me. If we're all still mad enough to be at this after that, John can drive third shift. Then the freak, if we decide we can risk it."

    "John doesn't drive," said Sherlock.

    "Then what's John along for?" Sally protested. Which Greg reckoned had to be just Sally trying to wind Sherlock up. She knew better. All night in a car with Sherlock was bad enough. All night driving round and round the M25 looking for a killer, with Sherlock deprived of John Watson, sounded like a new circle of hell.

    Summary

    This latest effort is not from the Guitar Man universe. Instead, atlinmerrick and I got to chatting about her story Canvas, and then she linked to this picture of John with writing all over his skin, which has inspired some Minutae stories for her. She then challenged me to write a words-on-skin story too. Does this make it a meme now?

    I was going to write it next week. It happened today instead. It's kind of schmoopy. I hope you like it.

    This is simply the best fem!John gets pregnant story ever! It's snarky, hilarious, and touching without descending into too much sentimentality. (I think my favourite paragraph has to be the one that starts: "There's a baby head sticking out of your vagina," Sherlock observed. "Does the rest come out soon?")

    Martin Crieff/Tony Stark - two worlds and two characters that seem like they should be totally incompatible, until you start reading and find that flawedamythyst has flawlessly matched up all of their softer edges, hobbies and vulnerabilities! Because how many people truly want to listen to Tony talk about his inventions all day? And how many people would be happy to let Martin ramble on about his fascination with planes? I am just so glad this has turned into more than a one-shot ♥ .

    A beautifully written story that showcases Sherlock's love of music through the eyes (ears?) of John and the fingers of Mycroft playing his compositions for John after the Reichenbach Fall. It's lovely to see a more unguarded Mycroft than usual, talking to John about his brother and the complications of their relationship.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    OK, so I avoided reading this the first few times I saw the stories come up, because it sounded like the sort of story that can easily be turned cliche - the canon characters turned into Mary-Sues because an author thought them being in a band would make them extra specially special!

    ...And then I actually read it, and realised I'd been a total fool not to read it before, because 221b_hound makes it work so very, very well within canon and very much in character. And suddenly there's case!fic with Anderson on drums, and post-Reichenbach angst/resolution fic, and oh God I hope she keeps on writing this series forever, because it is awesome!

    I love this. It's not exactly fail!sex but it's certainly not perfect, and it's just as I imagine them to be - Sherlock getting distracted half-way through, trying to talk whilst John is trying to kiss him, getting up right in the middle of things to go and Google something...and John resigned to it all because he loves Sherlock for his unstoppable mind, and just trying to come up with ideas that'll hold his attention for just that slight bit longer. And despite the differences and the complications, they are wonderfully, domestically happy in their life. :DDDDD

    I love the way that Saathi fleshes Sarah out into a fully rounded character in this series. She makes it very easy to believe that a romantic triad would work between her, John and Sherlock, and the over-arching plot is rich with tension, suspense and feeling.
