100 TV Shows #42-Cracker


An actor who is primarily known as a comedian plays an abrasive genius who is a substance abuser and treats everyone around him like shit, but gets away with it because he always solves the case, even if it's not always in time to prevent more death. But we've already talked about House MD. (Even more amusing since Robbie Coltrane and Hugh Laurie worked together on Alfresco and both appeared in Blackadder.)

I agree it's not a perfect analogy, but there are some similarities including the fact that Fitz has no problem getting women at least he does get DS Penhaligan who tells her DCI that she's invited Fitz to go on holiday and "roger her rigid," still one of my favorite lines from a UK TV show.

Hot well written

Signal Boost a/k/a Pimping for Aimee Kuzenski's Kickstarter

Hi guys, you may remember _tallian, who back in the day wrote some of my favorite fanfic for Torchwood including a few wonderful Jack/Tosh/Ianto threesome fics, which I still highly recommend. They're wonderfully real!Jack and fair to all involved.

Anyway, she has moved on to writing original fiction and is trying to raise some $$$$ via Kickstarter for a novel called Prisoner of War: An urban fantasy discarding the usual tropes in favor of ancient gods and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Here's the Kickstarter link.

Please take a look and see if it sounds like something you'd like to invest in. Or just take a look and send good vibes to one of own who is battling out of the Fanfic Ghetto, without just scratching the serial numbers off.

And while I've got the hat on-it's Fanfic Pimping Time!



Embracing The Dark by Starhawk2005.

Help me welcome Starhawk back to the fanfic fold. We go WAY BACK to my halcyon House MD days when her House/Cameron fic, especially her BDSM stuff helped me embrace my bi-fictionality. She's back among us with some lovely, hot, but not TOO DARK, BSDM material.

Read the warnings and tread cautiously if you might be triggered, especially by snakes, but it's really not dark at all.




On the other hand if you do want something dark and nasty and incestuous....we've got Kindred Spirits by daasgrrl, another one of my oldest cronies in the House MD fandom.

It's not noncon, but read the pairing and all appropriate warnings. It's smoking hot and very dirty and I absolutely loved it. There's some tenderness there, but I can guarantee you it's a schmoop and fluff-free zone.



Putting It Back Together Again

It's a Big Bang fic and it's a doozy!

Word Count: 17437
Characters/Pairings: Ianto/Gwen, Tosh/OMC; Ianto, Tosh, Gwen, Owen, OMC
Warnings/Spoilers: Set between End of Days and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang.

Set during the four months between End of Days and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The team is still coming to terms with Jack's abandonment, while Gwen, the new head of Torchwood, is also dealing with the fact that Rhys is truly gone. The Prime Minister's phone call to the remaining members of the team takes them, along with Benjamin Stratford, a new recruit, to the mysterious Himalaya to see if the Yeti is real, and if it needs their help getting home.

I'd especially recommend this to the rare-pair Gwen/Ianto shippers out there and to those who always what happened when the Master sent Torchwood on their "wild goose chase" to the Himalayas.
