The worst part of vacation...

Is going back to work.

The best part of taking the week prior to Thanksgiving week, is that I just have to get through three days, and then it's another four days off. Now I just have to get out of bed and drag my sorry ass in there.

Torchwood/Dr. Who

Half The Battle by ivy03
This is one of the great Torchwood J/I angst classics, going by the number of comments and I'm surprised I hadn't read it until it was recced to me by beta_goddess. Posted back in 2008. Classic real!Jack, screwing everyone and being his wonderfully bastard self about it. Ianto is clearly BUFT in this, and the attempt to nicey-nice it at the end, doesn't take away from that at all because Jack is still Jack and he will continue to be Jack. Awesome stuff, including some great Owen/Ianto interaction.

Ninth Doctor/John Hart-NC17
Hot hot and more hot. Very dark and complex Nine. And best of all-NON-WOOBIE JOHN!!!

The Driest Martini In The Galaxy by wiredblowfish
Tosh/Ianto-NC17
Yummy hurt/comfort drunken sex! A pairing that actually makes sense. I'm always up for some Ianto/ABJ, and this works beautifully, especially fragile, but still sexually passionate Tosh.

Two from the vaults-
Ambush and Ennui
Master/Ten. Hot smutty smut smut by haldane. If you haven't read either of these before and you like your Master/Ten on the hot, dark and evil side, please go over and give a read and a comment.

Free Agents by lefaym
Jack/Tenth Doctor-PG13
Hell to the yeah for my OTP and some real!Jack in the flesh, with the inevitable angst. Written pre-CoE, and incredibly prescient.

Tosh fic from a Song Lyric Prompt.
So sad, but very very beautiful. Much as I'd like to fanwank that Tosh and Owen could have made it work if time hadn't run out, I don't necessarily believe it, and this fics cuts deep in showing just why. Go. Read. Give love.

House MD
Too Many Heavy Boots
House/Wilson friendship-PG13
Oooooohhhhh----Sad and dark with plenty of Heroes references and a turn at the end I didn't see coming. 673 devastating words. I loved this so much, I can't even tell you.

Entourage

50 Ways You Smiled When You Lied
Vince/Eric
Written for the Fifty Themes-One Sentence community. Those can be hit or miss, but this one really works and has some absolutely stunning images for this pairing. I'm more of an Ari/Anyone girl, but I really enjoyed reading this, and it made me see Vince/Eric more than I ever have.

Star Trek
Someone To Watch Over Me by strawberrytatoo.
Kirk/McCoy-R
A little angst, a little fluff. What can I say; it works.

The Bed Meme

Ganked from babykid528

Uh, yeah. Pretty much.



Your Bed Says You Are Down to Earth



Outward appearances aren't important to you at all. You think that the over emphasis on looks to be shallow.



Your life tends to be completely chaotic. You aren't a very organized person, and you tend to be slow in cleaning up messes.



You are very high maintenance. You like everything a certain way, and you're grumpy if things aren't the way you like them.



In relationships, you tend to be quite dominant. You enjoy taking charge.



You tend to be a down to earth, practical person. You think in terms of what is actual.



You are a bit of a homebody, but you can also make yourself at home anywhere.


Hot well written

Song Lyric Prompt-a-Day 2009 Day 312

Prompts can be used for any fandom, pairing, or even original fic, if you like. (Yes, any.) All I ask is that you credit me with providing the prompt and comment with a link to the entry.



Prompt #312


At night when we stood in line for hours waiting
to see my favorite punk rock band.
I played with the passion and the power but she's only there
for all the fashion trends with her clueless friends.
