Notes: Another drabble, this one for my dear [livejournal.com profile] alostcorner , who is also having a rough time of it. I hope things shape up soon, bb! Here is GinnyLuna on a road trip for you. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] aigooism for reading this through and picking out my (rather many) typos.  Idea totally snagged from a poster in a LaQuinta hotel elevator.

For the lovely and wonderful alostcorner )
katmarajade: Woman drinking coffee with words "wake up" over her face (willow/tara)
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 RECS
Staring at the Rude Girls by [livejournal.com profile] paytofay (Girl!Sulu/Girl!Chekov, NC-17)

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 by [livejournal.com profile] _beetle_ (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 by [livejournal.com profile] ms_chak (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 RECS
A Pair of Dull Scissors in the Yellow Light by [livejournal.com profile] lily_pearl (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! by [livejournal.com profile] briony_tallis (Katie/Alicia, PG-13)

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 [livejournal.com profile] 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!

 Oh my word!  [info]paytofay wrote me Sulu/Chekov femslash!  *FLAILS!*

We'd talked about her writing this (It's genderbent S/C in a sort of HSAU [of which she is the queen] and it is glorious.)and I've been constantly bugging her encouraging and cheerleading her about this story and posting it now instead of waiting until International Day of Femslash in July, which was what originally sparked this.    And then she posted it-- and it's for me!  *flails more*  Because I've had a kinda crappy week and this was the best surprise gift of all time!  She is the most amazing person on the planet!  You should all love and worship her as much as I do. 


Seriously, what are you waiting for?  It's got gorgeous, smart, sassy girls; a first date at a diner; Hikaru punching a guy; super hot kisses and girl on girl action; a butch/femme vibe (which is a huge kink of mine); and Jamie Kirk cameos in a girl power band... um, could you possibly ask for anything more? 

ETA: And just when I thought my day could not get any better, [livejournal.com profile] paytofay posts the next installment of her Cupcake/Chekov saga, based on request/prompts/long comment thread rambling from me and [livejournal.com profile] secretsolitaire It's their first fight-- Pavel's proud and ridiculous and 18. Cupcake is just lost and confused. Sulu is the most amazing best friend ever. Kirk is Kirk and just fabulous. It should not be missed.

Oh my goodness, I love you guys so much! These fics have made me so fucking happy-- I want to cry! This is like the best day ever. *sobs and clings to [livejournal.com profile] paytofay and [livejournal.com profile] mcstories *
