It's finally the magic day where we get to find out who wrote what (and perhaps why). I wrote:In Case of Emergency, Head Towards the Nearest ExitEureka
; Jack and Nathan; PG; 2,861 wordsEveryone's set to celebrate Stark's miraculous return to Eureka. But nothing, even a simply party, can actually go as planned in Eureka.
My recipient wanted what everyone secretly wants: a chance for Nathan to be back in Eureka and solve things with Jack, snarking all the way. They also spoke of a love of all the made up science (overly cold ice cores that take over Eureka! Intelligence draining chicken breasts? I mean, come on!) that they have. So, having Fargo's computer program somehow merge with Henry's building program? No problem! I have a huge fondness for writing Jack (I can totally see his hand gestures and facial expressions, it's bizarre) and gosh, he and Nathan were amazing together. Go, read! Enjoy! If you read my other fic (with the amazing snowstorm! It was awesome!) I continue my theme of all the ridiculous paperwork that Jack has to no doubt fill out after all of these (because every government agency has paperwork, even in Eureka).
It's set in the gap between the end of season 3 and the beginning of season 4 (clearly in watching canon there has to have been a time gap between the two) so it doesn't require any rewriting of canon (though you know that Stark and Grant would be soooo amazingly snarky at each other too! It would be something Jack and Nathan could bond over!)
V for Vendetta; Evey/V; R; 3,117 wordsEvey and Finch are going through papers connected to V’s life and legacy, and it makes Evey think back to an evening she never told anyone about.
I love this! It takes all the twisty, complicated stories that people tell about each other and places Evey and Finch in V's compound going through his papers. The memory that Evey is reminded of (and the resulting Evey/V) is fascinating and I can totally see this as a deleted scene from canon.
So many good fics, so little time. A few recs:

. And, more cracktastically, A Unicornmas Dinner with the Amber Royal Family
. OMG so funny.
Hoping everyone had a lovely holiday--mine was full of family stuff (dramatic and otherwise) and trying to catch up on sleep. I've been working super long hours both at subbing and tutoring AND application reading, so my LJ presence has been kind of crap. Hopefully that will change, because I need to squee with everyone about Hawaii Five-O (go read the hotness at kissemdanno
)! And finally catching up on Criminal Minds! (sheesh, they've gotten so CREEPY
Happy beginning of 2011, all!
