It's here! International Day of Femslash! And I have not finished my fic... *headdesk x infinity* The story I was working on for this has gotten a bit more out of control than I'd thought and I can't bear to cut it down when I love the characters so much. I was totally panicking that I hadn't finished it and almost in tears when I finally had to STOP and tell myself that it's just a day and it's just fanfic and it's not the end of the world as we know it if the story doesn't get posted today. Yes, it's disappointing and I feel like a bit of a failure, but que sera sera, am I right?
Here's an excerpt from the story though, so I'm not a total failure! It's just a rough draft and unbetaed so bear with me (girl!Sulu/girl!Chekov, this excerpt is totally G-rated) ( Her eyes raked up and down Hikaru's drenched figure, taking in the melted make up, the black leather jacket and big boots, and the water-stained lavender dress hanging limply around her knobby knees and skinny legs. Hikaru suddenly found herself feeling terribly self-conscious. )ALSO FEMSLASH FIC RECS! YAY!STAR TREK XI RECSStaring at the Rude Girls
Yes, yes I have
recced this before, but I'm reccing it again
because I love love love it and it was written for ME! *twirls* It's hot, sweet, and wonderful. Chekova is cute and sassy. Hikaru punches a guy and works in a motorcycle shop and never wears a bra. Jamie Kirk cameos in a grrrl!band. There is no bad here. Dancing About Architecture
(Girl!Sulu/Girl!Chekov, Girl!Sulu/Girl!Kirk, other het and slash pairings, NC-17)
This is the fic that converted me to genderbent Sulu/Chekov. It's amazing!
Lots of love and triangles and unrequited or seemingly unrequited pining and hot sex and strong women and powerful relationships and emotionally charged twists and turns. It has definitely not gotten as much love as it so richly deserves so please check it out and tell her how fantastic this is! Find the Words
(Gaila/Uhura, Spock/Uhura, NC-17, mentions of slavery)
She just polished this up and reposted it for today! YAY! It's so heart-wrenching and lovely. I fell in love with Gaila in this and Uhura is so wonderfully characterized. Such a beautiful emotional punch. Uhura's confusion about their relationship is so understandable and the post-Farragut reaction totally made me go all wibbly and shiny-eyed. HARRY POTTER RECSA Pair of Dull Scissors in the Yellow Light
(Millicent Bulstrode/Susan Bones, PG)
This fic broke my heart. It's loosely based on the story of Samson and Delilah and I don't want to give anything away, but even if you're not a huge Millicent fan, your heart will ache
for her in this. Beautifully written and made me sob. Ta-Da!
So sweet! So funny! Alicia has gone off to play pro Quidditch and comes back to town for a girls' night out with Katie and Angelina. Alicia is wonderfully energetic and trying to show off and Katie is adorably clueless and Angelina is hilarious. Also, a lovely George cameo. This fic was my favorite piece at this year's femmefest
I do love Katie!
Enjoy! And leave some love for the fabulous authors if you do. And Happy International Day of Femslash to all! \o/ girl-love FTW!
