pilots attack!

Hey, guys! I'm suffering from an acute pilots attack tonight (always)--advice on how to alleviate some of the symptoms? Fic or vid recs, maybe? Sometimes I feel like I've seen it all (over and over again b/c that's my thing) so anything off the beaten track would be especially great.

Better yet, anyone working on any fic, art, or other projects of a piloty nature that you feel like sharing a bit about and that I, it's all about me we can look forward to? I already know I need me some more Ice!Pilots, "First Impressions," "The Irreplaceability of Things Lost," camping pilots, etc., etc., bit I'm suddenly just desperate for all the new K/L I can get. MOAR, I say! (I know, I should write some my damn self, but...well, let's just say you don't want to see that. Seriously.)

Maybe this is due to all the Finnick/Johanna and Johanna/Gale (The Hunger Games) I've been reading in the last couple days; aspects of both pairings (no, I still don't believe in multi-shipping for myself and I would never suggest that Finnick didn't completely love Annie, etc.--it's complicated, this personal canon of mine, lol--I ship them at different periods in these peoples' lives) remind me a lot of Kara/Lee (yes, it always comes back to them), which I blame on Tara. And electrumqueen. So. Good.

But my Mockingjay post is another one altogether (no, you did not miss anything when I did not mention reading anything to do with Katniss) and, since it will probably get awfully ragey at parts, will most likely have to wait till my pulse/bp is back to normal! So. Yeah. I get really off-track sometimes. Piloty goodness, anyone out there? Thanks a million in advance.

AH HA! There might be some First Impressions being posted at this very moment......


ETA: I should also say that a lot of lovely shippers contributed some funny, cracky, heartbreaking comments and comment!fic over the past week at the DPP. Nothing cohesive exactly, but many of them made me laugh and smile. :D

How exciting!!!!! I will read it on my lunch break! :DDDD

Oh, yes, you're right, I have lots of DPP to catch up on. Thanks!

I can try for off the beaten track...Most of these are by well-known writers, but these stories seem to be sort of not-talked-about for whatever reason. Not recced as often.

leave it all behind by bantha-fodder (just because I was thinking about road trips today)
Roll Over To Me by rawles
Thy Delicious Notes by spamdilemma
A Misunderstanding by songandsilence.

I would give you a sneak preview of one of my WIPs, but I am so far from finishing any of them. It would just be like "here's something I might post in 2011 if we're lucky!"

Oh, and another: Happenstance by pashoshi.

You know THAT does not ring a bell, so I'll check that out first. Many thanks.

Oh, man, thanks. You always know just what to rec! I think I know of those, but definitely haven't read them in a while... Isn't it strange how some things don't end up in those lists? But hey, that's good for me tonight! Sounds like exactly what I needed. Thank you again!

Where are you finding the Gale/Johanna stuff, out of curiosity? Any you'd recommend? (I refuse to entertain the notion of Finnick/Johanna, sorry. :) )

Eh, I had Tara and Anna, who had already found a lot of this, so I'm not the best person to ask. I see a lot of fic getting posted on themockingjay (and some cool icons, too), but of course there is no quality control. I tend to go by rec lists from people I trust, follow those authors, and then find other authors through them.

Here are some Gale/Johanna recs (no worries about F/J; those two are all about the unrequited love and dooooom, which is right up my alley but not for everyone):

[untitled aka the offspring fic, pt. 1] ) (not exaaaactly Johanna/Gale, this is centered around Jo&Gale's son and Katniss&Peeta's daughter. REALLY good, though, and I think electrumqueen may be planning to delve deeper into Johanna and Gale's relationship and their relationship with their son like she did with Katniss/Peeta in the sequel HERE.

This next rec, the boy on fire trilogy, is not Gale/Jo (it actually involves some Gale/Katniss and Gale/Madge), but I'm really looking forward to reading it. It's an AU centered around the idea that Gale, rather than Katniss, went to the Hunger Games...with Madge Undersee. Part the first: I Never Meant to Kill You. Part the second: This Fire (It's Burning Us Up). The third piece hasn't been posted yet.

Scar Tissue (rated R, kinda dark).

The Punishment by archerastar (rated R, pretty damn dark).

This should get you started if you're interested. :)

Anna (Electrumqueen) just posted a longer sequel to the Gale-as-tribute fic, with Katniss as the one leading the charge in District 12. It's fantastic: http://bit.ly/bTzjwp

On the pilots front... sigh. I got nothing for you. :( No new writing and I'm even having trouble reading them lately.

I know, I'm so excited to read it! I keep putting it off like some treat I have to work toward earning. MY BRAIN IS WEIRD LIKE THAT OKAY?

NOOOOOOO. Does this mean you're losing interest in them? You are the last person I thought that would happen to. :((((
Sep. 28th, 2010 12:44 am (UTC)
Aw I don't think so. I just am in a lull with them I think. :( Eh, I don't know.

Also, your epic icon is EPIC if I haven't said that enough. <3333333

Ha ha. Thanks! I really love it.
