Slashy Nominations 2: Attack of the Small Fandoms  
FF That Proves the Fic Author Should Have Written the Canon, Too, Except I Don't Think She Could've Talked George Clooney and Brad Pitt into Doing Some of This Stuff: Confidence Men, by Dorinda. Ocean's 11, Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan. As soon as I got to the five-pieces-of-mail scene, my jaw hit the floor and stayed there for the duration of the fic. This is one of the few pieces of slash I've read that fit so perfectly into the canon (at least in my mind) that I've melded the two – this fic is another set of deleted scenes to me, and always will be.

Best FF That Should Destroy Treasured Childhood Memories but Somehow Doesn't: Summer's Men, by Kest. Dark Is Rising series, Will/Bran. (Yes, I've mentioned this one before, but I don't care. Some fics just deserve our unwholesome worship, and there's nothing we can do but give it.) I started this fully intending to feel righteous indignation and ended up only feeling that Kest got it just right. From now on, this is grown up Will and Bran for me.

FF with the Best Slash Names Ever: Telemachos, or The Genealogy of Buggery, by Resonant. Horatio Hornblower book slash, Hornblower/Longley. Did Forester plan these names - hell, these books - to be this slashy? Probably not. Those were sad, repressed times, people.

Best FF That's Really a YA Novel, Only Better and Dirtier Than Most, Not That I Think YAs Would Mind: Void, by Wax Jism*. The Faculty, Zeke/Casey/Delilah. This fic is brutal and sexy and strange. Just like adolescence.

Yup! As soon as I get the rest of my life under control (it's been quite the interesting December in these parts), I'll be coming back here to do some, you know, posting. And I'll also fix all the yuletide story links, because, thanks to some very irritating hackers, the archive had to be moved a few days before Christmas (2004). In the meantime, here's the correct link for Confidence Men. And, in general, any story that was stored on the intimations Yuletide archive can now be found via the Quicksearch page at the new Yuletide Treasure Archive.

Enjoy Confidence Men. It's incredible. (And, hey, wow - I didn't think anyone ever went through the back entries!)

I had heard there was a spot of bothher with dammed hackers in an archive. Just didn't know it was that one. V. Sad.

And in a time of great literary need, and enormous laziness, i have gone back to see what you recced, as you have dammed good taste in fics/auhtors and what not. ALso you maybe sucking me into the Sentinel (sp?) fandom. I do not have time for this, but alas it seems to be happening :P

Thank you for the links! MMmmmmmm, Rusty....
