Friday Rec Day

Hello Internet!  For your Friday, I thought I'd like to share some creative works I've enjoyed recently.

-Fanvid, MCU:  Hey Ho by thuviaptarth.  Beautifully made vid that delivers a biting critique.  Best watched without too much information, but it contains footage from The Avengers, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, and Agents of SHIELD.

-Fanfic, crossover between Chronicles of Narnia and Doctor Who/Torchwood:  The Problem of Susan by MarcusRowland.  This is the best sort of crossover, the sort that enhances and makes more sense out of both universes.  Very clever and meticulously researched. I love the characterization of Susan.  There is one part of the coda that didn't sit quite right with me, but YMMV on that bit and everything else about this story is fantastic.

-Fanfic, BBC Sherlock:  The Clock Turns Backward by Moranion.  Sherlock/John/Mary, canon-compliant post-HLV.  I ship this OT3 so hard, and there is just not enough fic about them.  This is one of my favorites of the ones I've read.  The prose is lovely, and the emotional resolution is gloriously satisfying.

Outside of the realm of fanworks, I've recently started watching Lost Girl on Netflix and enjoying it a great deal.  The plots can be kind of dopey, but it features a lot of things I appreciate:  (1) a female lead and her also female sidekick/best friend, plus plenty of other complex female characters.  Pretty much every ep so far passes the Bechdel test. (2) magic, (3) non-straight characters and relationships, (4) highly attractive Canadians.

What have y'all been enjoying recently?

PS: you should all go and vote for Abbie Mills of Sleepy Hollow in the Fandom March Madness finals.

That's a cool vid, thanks for the link!

I have been super loving Brooklyn Nine-Nine lately. It's hilarious and also a really sweet-natured show.

I'm glad you enjoyed the vid!

I've heard nothing but good things about Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I should add it to my list of things to watch. :)

Thanks! I am more proud than I should be at my ability to predict the whims of FMM voters.
