Still time to come up with a costume and help spread the word. If you haven't pimped yet, now's your chance.

Turns out there's a documentary in the works about Congressman Alan Grayson...and you can help.
Anti-pimpage for Torchwood a story I thought I'd enjoy and didn't. Jack/Diane is a potentially awesome pairing, even if it does make me think of the John Cougar Mellencamp song. Please to not be ruining it by making Jack into a weepy woobie. I love hurt/comfort as much as the next fangirl, but the agenda was clearly warped here to sell alleged cause of weepy woobiness. FEH! If you see a fic for this pairing and you think it's gonna be awesome: Beware!
If anyone's got a real!Jack/Diane story for me to read to get the bad taste out of my mouth, please let me know.
Life On Mars
Missing, Presumed Dead by Zauth Chauvert
A really interesting fic, giving an explanation for Sam's "disappearance" from a very bitter Gene's POV, and including a very rare- pair.
Dr. Who/Jeeves and Wooster Crossover
Jeeves and the Last Time Lord by Aurilly
Written for the Multi-Fandom Crossover Exchange.
Funny, brilliant stuff, written in perfect Wodehousian language. Features Jeeves and Wooster, along with Jack and the Doctor and bunch of the Jeeves-verse regulars including Gussie Fink-Nottle and his news. Fluffy as only Jeeves-fluff can be, but I'm giving it the green-light because Jeeves is by rights the fluffiest of fluffy fandoms, and the writer gives just the teensiest hint of something below the surface, plus writing a Jack who is most unabashedly real!Jack.
To The Nines by hllangel.
A fun ficlet written for the Multifandom Pride Meme
Time to see the gang dressed up and the chance for Neal to meet Christie.
Third Date by Light Gets In
Peter at home while Neal and El are out together. A bit of schmoop, a tinge of angst, and some nice smut that somehow manages to be three-way without ever quite getting there.
Personal note...not quite a rant, but I'm getting a little tired of the White Collar fanon/trope that Peter would never touch Neal until the anklet is off. I'm not saying it's necessarily wrong, but too many fanfic writers are using it as a plot device to have UST with no actual sex, so I'm seeing it A LOT. And when I see something A LOT, I start getting cranky.
