zorb: (Zap!)
Since one of the only things I do now on this journal is talk about movies, it's time for the mostly-annual response to Academy Award nominations post.

In summary, WTF.

It's not that this is a rare year where things are questionable, but it's impressive how deeply questionable the nominations list managed to be this time around. Usually, you get one or two "snubs" that are judgement calls among a previously-implied list of candidates that have managed to get awareness. The actual awards night is where outrage happens.

Not so much for this year. If you're reading this, you presumably care at about these things like I do and are familiar with the general bewilderment expressed about it. My two cents to add are below the cut )

Usually, I make it to ten or so completed categories by the time the awards happen. This year, I've only got one (Best Supporting Actress), and I'm unlikely to make it much further due to my total lack of interest in American Sniper and Foxcatcher. (Mr. Turner also contributed, but remains an outside chance to see.) I have better things to watch.

Spoilers: Vague. Set somewhere S10ish or later.

Title: The Threads You Follow
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zorb
Rating: PG
Spoilers: Through "Threads."
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] maevebran in the [livejournal.com profile] sd_ficathon, back-up.

Title: Compromised
Author: [livejournal.com profile] zorb
Rating: PG-13, for innuendo
Spoilers: Set vaguely in S10 or thereabouts. *waves hand* Specific spoilers are only through S9 and the S10 team's composition.
Recipient: [livejournal.com profile] surrealphantast in the [livejournal.com profile] sd_ficathon
Prompt: "Sam and Daniel stranded off-world and becoming aware of each other in a romantic way. The hotter the better." I hope this fits the bill!
Summary: Sam and Daniel are best friends and science nerds who never argue because they're so much alike. This clearly indicates their sibling-like relationship. And if you believe that, I've got a kassa farm on Mars I'd like to sell you. Only thing is, I've got two offers pending; one's from Sam, and the other's from Daniel.

Title: Clinging as Condition (Bhava Rising), Part Two
Rating: R, for teh pr0n
Characters/Ships: Original team, Sam/Daniel, Daniel/Sha're
Spoilers: Through "Tin Man." I know, I make it so tough to follow along.
Disclaimer: There are a lot of references to other works in this fic. I don't want to spoil them in advance, but if you recognize it, it's not mine, and I'm not making any money from it. That goes especially for the Stargate universe and all it encompasses. When in doubt, Wikipedia.
Summary: "With clinging as condition, bhava arises." What happens when you're cut off from everything and almost everyone you know, down to yourself? How do you reconcile who you were and who you are? How do you become?

Rating: G. So very G.
Characters: Sam and Daniel, Gen
Spoilers: "Holiday"
Disclaimer: Nope, not mine.
Summary/Note: Sooner or later, Daniel will run out of places to eat in Colorado Springs. A post-"Holiday" fic to answer one of the episode's less burning but more amusing questions, written in response to an anonymeme request.

Title: Ten Righteous Men
Rating: NC-17 (omg)
Pairing: Sam/Daniel
Spoilers: Vague through at least the beginning of S9
Disclaimer: They're not mine and it's really a shame.
Summary/Note: For the porn battle, because I'm incapable of writing anything short.  Unbetaed; I apologize for any errors and for the porn. Also, I'm a heathen, so please excuse any unintentional offense.  I've never written anything quite this dirty and for all I know, it's laughably bad.  Enjoy it either way!

Title: Five Things That Definitely Didn't Happen That Year
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers: Through the end of S2 (LDYB2)
Disclaimer: They're not mine. I apologize for any trauma they might suffer at the hands of this fic.
Summary: Exactly what the title says.
Note: This fic is not serious in any way, shape, or form. Thanks a million to [livejournal.com profile] mjryan for the beta. Enjoy!

Title: The Trouble with…
Rating/Warning: PG-13
Characters: Sam, supported by the S1-7 team
Spoilers: None, but takes place in S1 or 2
Disclaimer: None of the characters, species, or plot devices within this fic belong to me and I am making no money off of repurposing them to suit my needs.
Summary:  SG-1 encounters flying, vampiric tribbles.  What?
Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] heidiweidel in the [livejournal.com profile] samcarterficathon, on the following request: Sam leading SG1 (or another team); the rest of SG1 (Jack, Daniel, Teal'c) is present; an interesting, non-humanoid alien or alien influence.  Originally posted here.

The Trouble with… )
zorb: (Bitches - SG)
Title: Attached
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Ships: Either Sam/Daniel or Daniel/Vala. You pick! (No, really. You do.)
Spoilers: Through S9's "Deus Ex Machina"
Disclaimer: Characters, settings, two lines of dialogue, and external plot do not belong to me and I am making no money off of re-interpreting them to suit my purposes. I am the tamest sort of evil.
Summary/Note: Peer behind the scenes of early Season 9 as Daniel keeps Sam in the SGC loop - including his ever-so-trying relationship with Vala Mal Doran. An experiment in interpretation with no relation to the TNG episode of the same name. I am grateful to my beta reader purplepenguin and to everyone who responded to this post. This fic took three tries, and it still wouldn't be here without your help.

Title: Diplomacy
Rating: PG? Maybe just G.
Spoilers: S9's "The Scourge"
Disclaimer: None of it's mine but the dialogue.
Summary/Note: A missing scene from "The Scourge," in which Sam finds messing with Daniel more fun than babysitting hostile diplomats.  Mostly written just for the sake of writing something after a dry spell in this fandom.  We're talking no plot, no extrapolation beyond what's given in canon, no intense revelations, only shippy if you squint hard...hence, a ficlet. Thanks to my beta, who helped even though there was no cave sex.
