'Cause I'd Miss You, Babe
John<3Rose collab entry for HSO'12; post-game, the kids all get tumblrs. John and Rose are dating, and ridiculously sweet... And then they fuck up with each other. Takes a bit to take off, but the fucking-up is believable, totally in-character, and sometimes hilarious. Ngl, though, my favorite moments might be Karkat's cameos.

hso2012_collabs1 | Fic/Art: The Shadiest of Bars (Alpha!Dave<3Alpha!Rose)
Opening weekend of SBaHJ: Behidn the Scenes. Ten minutes into the first screening the Internet was already decoding it, as piranhas decode a capybara. An hour after the credits reached the key grip there came the first flash mob. Twenty-nine teenage girls had all linked hands on a subway platform and begun murmuring the opening lines one after another, a beat delayed, as though singing in a round. They had kept it up nearly four minutes. Someone had sent him a badly oscillating clip: red sweatshirts in the dimness, a felt-tip maze drawn on a plump arm, the blue sudden brightening of a screen through a pocket. The overlaid harmony in their recitation, unintelligible, implacable, a conduit carrying the world’s long current of voices of girls who warn rightly, and aren’t believed. At the margins he had seen passers-by shut up and stop. A chill had passed over his own shoulders, as they all drew out the last note. Attagirls.

|| Oh. Oh, oh, oh. Really picks up steam in the second section, where the politics mirroring life nearly took me apart (quoted above), and then just--the ending is phenomenal. All much, much sadder and more beautiful than I can really imagine the Homestuck world ever being--but how sad. How stunningly, gut-clenchingly wrought.

Journey to the Land Where Formal Etiquette is Useless (Alpha OT4, by DoctorV, dogtier, ferrrox, lantadyme, nextian, PlayerProphet & pumpkinbortuqal)
(Choose-your-own-adventure illustrated fic.) Jake Harley, intrepid young trans-continental adventurer, falls down a rabbit hole and finds himself in a strange land. With so many people collaborating, the quality in this is variable, but there's enough that's really cool for me to rec it. Three branches are Wonderland, one (my favourite) is Hunting of the Snark. Most endings come back to Sburb in some way, but the 'verse isn't inwardly coherent and consistent between the branches.

(Summary by cestwhat, because again, she's spot-on, and apparently I haven't already saved this.)

|| Ahahahaa, actually really delightful? Actually really delightful. A Choose Your Own Adventure type illustrated fic, mostly dialogue, dealing with Daves from a series of different timelines, whose timelines are being "solidified" due to one Dave's deal with the horrorterrors. All of them are just as ridiculous as alpha!Dave, so that's a treat.

His eulogy is Roxy, now trembling quietly, like she's had a part of herself severed and there's not even anything left to shoot to avenge her loss.

He should be sadder. Him and Rose should be over there getting snot and tears all over their jammies. But those four are better at this, and Rose has had to channel the Furthest Ring and be their Seer of Light, holding every piece of their plan in her head at once. If he feels like a truck has run him over and backed up over the remains for funsies, she must feel worse. He's better used here, being a rock for her to lean on.

|| How the final battle might go. Over, and over, and over again. Exquisite characterization and totally believable of Sburb. One of the best pieces I've read for HSO2012.

ON THE CARE AND FEEDING OF MARINES, BY WALT, AGED 23 AND A HALF, AND RAY, AGED 25 - puckling, Sharksdontsleep - Generation Kill [Archive of Our Own]
OK OK OK. So, this starts off kind of slow, a list of sex things (whoop) that Ray and Walt (and Nate and Brad!) get up to, and it's hilarious, but, yeah, ok, and THEN, shit like this happens:

34. There is a list of things they don't talk about. It's posted on the fridge. Walt's neuroses about Jell-O. Ray's need to compulsively win at Scrabble. And chess. Then there is the list of things they really don't talk about. That list Ray keeps in his head, away from Walt, safe.

Ray doesn't think Walt knows about that list until Walt, out of the blue, while making potato salad, says, "My dad was a real bastard too. If he weren't dead already, they'd never find him."

"Why do you mention it?"

"No reason," Walt says. "Did you want this chopped any smaller?" He holds up a chunk of potato.

"No, they're fine the way they are."

And keeps fucking happening. By the end, it's a beautiful, hilarious, WONDERFUL portrait of these four, particularly Ray and Walt, and it only gets more and more delightful. Read.

flummery: new vid! Doctor Who, Handlebars
I can ride my bike with no handlebars. --The song matches perfectly the Doctor's ridiculous and overpowered-ness. It's worth it for that. (I love that the other character I've seen vidded to this is Jed Bartlett. HAH.)
