Not a ficrec, but I am currently reading (basically almost done with) Heaven's Queen by Rachel Bach. It's the third in a trilogy, and I have actually enjoyed all of them (which is saying something if you are familiar with my recent very uneasy relationship with book trilogies). Best characterized as space opera, action with romance, with a female lead named Devi Morris that I think many of you would enjoy.
Anyway Ficrecs!A Thousand Pieces
. Star Wars (Original Trilogy), Han/Leia, Teen. There was a puzzle there, you just didn't see it.
Every now and then I try to dip my toe into Star Wars as an actual fic fandom, and then I remember that there's books and Clone Wars and stuff that I really know basically nothing about and get intimidated and run far away. But for this, you only need the three original movies, and it's glorious - Leia with her strength and her internal struggle and Han just being Han
and the two of them getting from beginning to end. Also the execution of the writing is beautiful.
Okay, the rest of this list should be sub-titled things tumblr made me think of this week
1) Gifsets like this one
from Descent for some reason always make me think, "Oh hey, that needs fic links to go with it!" Except then I never get around to it. I am not sure why Descent in particular has that effect on me, but here you go regardless:Engaged
. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, K+. Jacob find out about Hansen.
If by some chance you are reading this and have not read all the Jojo fic ever, stop making that "what does this have to do with Descent" face and go read the fic (both chapters). The rest of you know you want to re-read it, right?No Air

. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, Teen. Their miraculous save comes a few moments too late.
Okay, you've all read this too, but whatever. An alternative for those less inclined to fluff, though it's not as sad as the summary sounds! Annerb's looks at what happens when you push people all the way to the breaking point are always great and this one is no exception.
I feel like there is at least one more Descent-related fic I ought to be adding here, but I'm drawing a blank. Someone help me!
2) There's been some Bill Lee on my dash recently, and some Zero Hour, and my brain put them together and pulled this up and I started giggling before I even went to re-read it:Giant Plant-like Thing in the Night
(480 words) by ziparumpazoo
Stargate SG-1, Bill Lee, G. Bill Lee has a little PTSD following Zero Hour.
Poor Bill, lol. (This space is not actually intended as free advertising for my beta readers, it's just that I re-read their fic a fair amount. I am emotionally attached, okay?) FYI, this fic originally happened because of this crack-y fic titles challenge
. There are still any number of titles that no one ever wrote. I'm just pointing that out in case anyone is bored.
