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 by Motchi.  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 by Jojo.  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 (1547 words) by Annerb. 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.

Have been away from keyboard most of the week, but look! I am posting these two weeks in a row. Yay me. ;) Someday I might get around to reading and reccing things that are more recent than this? Maybe? Hah. I am perpetually behind, fannishly speaking.

Oh, hey - speaking of being perpetually behind, I am finally getting around to watching all those Marvel movies. Like, so far I have watched Iron Man, Iron Man 2, and Thor. I'm going to catch up with the real world in a few more months, maybe. *g*

Okay. Ficrecs:

Rumours of my Demise (4012 words) by cupiscent Star Wars Prequel Trilogy, Padmé Amidala/Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mature. Padme Amidala cannot live in a galaxy where he has come to be what he is. Obi-Wan Kenobi spends most of his time talking with ghosts. Warnings: Major Character Death. An AU what-if set after Revenge of the Sith that scratched an itch I had after my kids re-watched all six movies over the course of several rainy, yucky days. Spare and melancholy and really lovely.

for just one taste of this (1843 words) by nextgreatadventure. Stargate SG-1, Sam/Jack, Mature. After that, though, things got tricky and dangerous because they pushed a little more and went a little (a lot) further off that deep end, and soon it was the two of them alone in the empty barracks and this wasn’t wrong, was it, just sitting side by side in the darkness? A season 4/Divide and Conquer-era 'what if they didn't actually manage to keep it all locked away' story. Slow and hot and while you can certainly feel a tiny undercurrent of all the ways this could end badly sometimes in the future, this story is more about the love and devotion underneath the lust and the mutual bad decisions. Also did I mention hot? :)

Nefarious Playwrights Are To Blame For My Life (2847 words) by a_loquita. Stargate: SG-1, Sam/Jack, Teen. I swear sometimes that there is someone writing my life, specifically, an omnipotent being that's sick and twisted and has got it in for Jack O'Neill. Okay, so I might have accidentally-on-purpose re-read a fair amount of a-loquita's fic recently, but which to rec today? There are many, many excellent choices. But I had not read this one in *ages*, so here you go. I love the Jack O'Neill voice in this story, the trademark humor but with much more serious stuff going on underneath. (Also naked and UST are really quite difficult to pull off in the same fic like this, I'm just saying.) :)
