Instead of getting to work early this morning, I decided to read fic! Yay! *is now stuck at work until 6:15, but is okay with this*

I've got a couple of insta-recs for you, my dear f-list, as a result of my failure to be punctual!

Wherein Colin is Bradley's Baby-Momma by [ profile] ifyouweremine
Summary: “My super-potent sperm has knocked up Colin’s man-uterus with a demon child or possibly a ginger. Please help!” said Bradley.
Why the Rec? Because this is JUST AS MUCH CRACK AS YOU WOULD GUESS FROM THE TITLE AND SUMMARY, OKAY?? I seriously nearly fell off my couch laughing. This is excellent crack, and a fine pick-me-up for anyone with a 'case of the Mondays'. The bit with Colin's mum was fantastic! XDDD

Teaching the Indie Kids to Joust Again by [ profile] bookshop
Summary: ~ If the Mountain will not go to the sea then the river must bring them together.~
Why the Rec? One, it's [ profile] bookshop, whose posts never fail to bring joy to my life. Two, it's both Colin/Bradley AND Merlin/Arthur. Three, the styling of the fic is amazing. And Four, not only is it long and squee-filled, it also manages to fit some seriousness in there, just at the edges, and just enough that the stuff that happens between Colin and Bradley is meaningful. I love this fic, like, an unholy amount. The soul of my firstborn belongs to this fic, now. <3

Also, I should announce--BE PREPARED, f-list!! For this here post is my 999th on this journal! And you're in for a special treat for my 1,000th post. Ohhhhh, yes. I had all sorts of plans for my 1,000th post, but they have been thrown into disarray and LULZ, and I plan to share the LULZ with you. Because I love you, f-listers. All because I love you. <3

As I have stated previously, I have a serious kink for epic-length, non-AU J2 fics, and especially first-time fic, so that's the focus of this recs set. I've got some shorter, fluffy/domestic fics to rec, too, but I've got waaaaaay too many fics to rec, so I'm splitting them into a couple of posts. XD

Recs are in no particular order!

J2 Non-AU Epic-Length Recs! )

And, to round it out, one vid rec! (Since I promised everyone today that I'd link them to the vid. XDDD )

Title: I Fell in Love
Vidder: [ profile] proofpudding
Pairing: Jared/Jensen
Music: "Here in Your Arms" by hellogoodbye
Warnings: Beware this vid. It will pimp you into J2, all by itself. <333!
Why the Rec?: It's a vid of Jared and Jensen, being Jared and Jensen. In other words, this is the epic tale of two boys in love. Bouncy, happy, catchy, endlessly re-watchable. And the perfect pimping vid for those J2 doubters on your f-list. XD

I've been bookmarking some things to rec, and it seems like a good time to do it!

Recs sorted by fandom, and then in an arbitrary order, otherwise known as "the order they show up in my bookmarks in".

Fandoms include Merlin, Supernatural, NCIS, The Dresden Files, and miscellaneous Yuletide recs.

So, as a side-effect of being unemployed, I've managed to read a truly scandalous amount of fic lately. Some of that fic has been really, really good, so I thought it was time for a recs post. Here I bring you Round 1 (hopefully "Round ONLY") of "SolarCat's Unemployment Fic Recs!"

A lot of these are long, they're from a hodgepodge of various fandoms, and some of them are years old. I'm reccing them anyway. Hopefully you'll find something good to read, dear f-list. Recs are under the cut, sorted by fandom (NCIS, Supernatural RPS, Entourage, A Knight's Tale, The Devil Wears Prada, Torchwood).

There you have it--a small collection of recs, mostly for fandoms you probably didn't know I had. XD Happy reading, everyone!

Okay, I don't do meta very often, but this is something that ... hmm. Hit me, I guess, tonight, as I was watching the previews for tomorrow night's episode of Bravo TV's "Make Me a Supermodel".

For those of you who may be unaware, "Make Me a Supermodel" is a reality TV show where a group of hopefuls compete week-to-week to become ... well, supermodels. Normally, this would be extremely uninteresting to me. BUT. This show has something special. Namely, it has Ben and Ronnie. And this is where my mixed feelings begin.

(NOTE: I'm leaving this post public, so feel free to link it to anyone you think may be interested.)
