2008 GOAL: 815/1602

Chuck: untitled? by misspamela - I was looking for Devon/Ellie fic and managed to stumble across this one and it was really cute! I think it could have used some scene breaks to make it flow a little better, but it was basically adorable and I can totally believe that Devon probably kind of annoyed Ellie at first and then somehow managed to just be his adorable, charming self, even if he is a total jock. The author has really good voices for the characters, too, making this a nice little read! (Devon/Ellie.)

Chuck: Vocabulary Lessons by aliaspiral - Awesome shows Ellie the size of his...vocabulary. What's this? Devon/Ellie fic that's funny, hot, and sexy? And makes with the het porns? I... did not expect this out of fandom! It's a really cute fic and the voices for the characters are delightful, but it's also really kind of hot and these two should totally get more fic exactly like this. It's not always easy writing het sex scenes, but this was really nicely done and it was very easy to see. <3 (Devon/Ellie, a light NC-17.)

Engine Sentai Go-Onger: In The Name of Speedor by Whisper - You know what really charms me about Go-Onger? That they're all a bunch of retards and I love them for it. This fic helps if you read the prompt (which is "Sailor Moon") and get what Hant is trying to do, but the real fun of this piece is in Sousuke's reactions to everything. Because his teammates are a bunch of freaks. Though, like he should talk. XD (No warnings/pairings.)

Kamen Rider Den-O: ROUTAROU BEING KIND OF OKAY WITH NOBODY ELSE REMEMBERING YUUTO by Meg - You know what there needs to be more of in this world? People being nice to Yuuto and him being unconscious so he can't bitch about it. Because baby needs more people being nice to him and him not spazzing their affections away. I really liked this ficlet a lot, it's not too sappy or overdone, but there's something really touching and quietly powerful about it. ....also, maybe I am a sap for Yuuto and Ryoutarou, shut up. (Implied Ryoutarou/Yuuto, I guess.)

Kamen Rider Kabuto: Five Times Tendou Did Something Like a Normal Person by Meg - You know, I read Circe's prompt for this and spent a little time trying to think of things Tendou would do like a normal person. I had a lot of trouble coming up with any examples. So, Meg is a very good person to have written this, especially because I love each and every one of them. Number 3 is totally my favorite, but I really do love them all because they're funny or show Tendou's damage or show the hotness of the show or are just interesting. This is why I love five-things memes. ♥ (Some Kagami/Tendou, I suppose.)

Katekyou Hitman REBORN!: Sonatina by vicious_lullaby - This is an interesting take on Chrome's character, I really like the almost passive sort of tone it takes even while she's almost sort of straining to do something. The use of language is very pretty, but what I liked the most was her attitude towards Mukuro, especially this line: she does not see him as overbearing but all-encompassing. Her view of Chikusa and Ken are very nicely done as well. (Implied Mukuro/Chrome if you want to see it that way.)

Katekyou Hitman REBORN!: Fuse by vicious_lullaby - Lambo and I-Pin together is one of my darling pet pairings for this series and it doesn't happen enough, certainly not with a bit of experimentation or exploration on the characters and what it was like to be babies raised in their world, to have the weapons they did. I find this take on them really intriguing, it's interesting to see how it draws them together, their attitudes towards life. Plus, the writing is very pretty. <3 (Lambo/I-Pin.)

Katekyou Hitman REBORN!: Simplicity by vicious_lullaby - This is another really short piece, barely more than 250 words, but it's a lovely one about Haru and Kyouko in the future, their roles in things and how it can be hard to feel like you're useless and a drag. I like that they don't have to be super-powered to be awesome, I like that they can just be normal girls and I adore their friendship, this was a very sweet piece for that. (No real warnings/pairings.)

Love Mode: Integrals and Derivatives by Aishuu - Somehow I missed this the first time Aishuu wrote it, which is weird, because I usually pounce on Love Mode fic. And augh this makes me want to go reread the series again because it's seriously one of my most favorite series ever. And this is really cute, I love the take on Izumi here, the way he's grown up a lot from who he used to be and how he treated Takamiya, but he's also still very much Izumi. And her Takamiya is so sweet without being cloying, which is perfect. And this just. This made me all happy and glowy to read this morning. ♥♥♥♥ (Takamiya/Izumi.)

Sailor Moon: not quite a nudist colony by reversedhymnal - There is not nearly enough pretty Sailor Moon fic like this in existance and, really, my only complaint is that it's far too short. Not that it really needs to be any longer, I just want more of it. It nicely bridges the Usagi we saw in the series and the future Neo Queen Serenity we know she'll become, you can see they're both her, even in this short piece set through Endymion's eyes. And I love the sense of love and connection and attraction here, it's wonderful. (Endymion/Serenity.)

Sailor Moon: Always There by kawaiigami - This was a short little piece that was also a nice way to bridge the Usagi we know in the series with the future self we know she becomes, but seen through Mamoru's eyes and how much he wants to protect her and how much he loves her, despite that she's such a strong person. I love that you can really tell how much both of them care about each other here, it totally makes me want to go read a bunch more UsaMamo fics just like this one... apparently I'm in a mood for that today. <3 (Mamoru/Usagi.)

Tales of the Abyss: Colour Wheel by Aegen - This was an interesting piece from Dist's point of view, while he's sitting in jail for awhile, his thoughts almost like a fever dream. I'm not sure I got the same impression as the author, that he was that much of an outsider with the group when he was younger, but I like that it's clearly from Saphir's memories, so it's not like they could be trusted. XD And I liked the use of color in this fic, the way it's a touch surreal and dramatic, like Dist so clearly is, I can see him thinking along these lines when he's being reflective or just. Well. Dramatic. It was an interesting read. <3 (Implied Jade/Dist.)

- Code Geass - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - I hesitated over this site... the art is very cute, but I generally don't go for that much Code Geass art unless it really knocks me off my feet or is a particular character/pairing that I'm craving. But this site was cute enough for me to keep going and be quietly charmed by it... and then I got to a really pretty illustration of Lelouch and Euphemia, which is something I don't see that often in fanart. After that point, I really enjoyed this site, the level of detail seemed to go up and the artist drew the characters really well and their eyes are so pretty and then there was a really nice one of Shirley that made me happy and the artist's Lelouch is gorgeous and the group illustrations are kind of amazing and her Suzaku looks great and just. It wound up being a really nice site. (A smidge of Suzaku/Lelouch and maybe a little other, but it's mostly gen.)

- Tales of the Abyss - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - This site is not going to be for everyone, the art is very simple and there's not a ton of detail to it, plus it's very focused on the Ion clones and so there's not much variety. But I was kind of won over it by it because... well, I can't really put my finger on why precisely, possibly just that I liked the interaction between the replicas or I was weak to the chibis, I've been known to be that. XD And, when you see the artist showing her b&w images next to her color images, you can actually see that the lines themselves are nicely clean and solid, making several illustrations really interesting to look at. It's a good, light little site, especially if you're fond of these characters. (No warnings/pairings.)

- Tales of the Abyss - [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Have I been to this site before? At first I sort of felt like I had, but when I got further into the gallery, I felt like I hadn't. Idk, maybe I clicked onto the site one day when I just wasn't in the mood for ToA art. Anyway, today I am, so I'm really quietly charmed by this site! The art is on the simple side, but it's clean and often chibi-esque, which makes it really cute to me, and works well with characters like Ion or Sync. There's a surprising amount of it, too, in the regular gallery and on the log pages, which has some really cute pairings that I've not seen a lot, all using the bright, cel-style coloring that makes it work for me. Guy/Sync? Well, when it's this cute, it's hard to complain. <3 (Occasional pairings like Sync/Ion or Guy/Sync, but no real themes.)

- Tales of the Abyss - F*PUNCH [ Japanese Fanart Site ] - Man, I guess I must really be in a ToA mood today, this is another site that might not be for everyone, but I really kinda liked it this morning, the colors are bright and clean, often with that almost jewel-tone style to the characters' eyes that I know I'm also weak to, and a lot of focus on the younger crowd, which I... don't really mind. I like Sync a lot, plus the artist would occasionally draw Anise and Arietta together, which I would totally ship for a quarter. But it's also that the artist did a handful of these really pretty poster-style illustrations with Luke and Tear, the one of Luke sleeping in her lap in the garden at night is just gorgeous to me. The group art stuff (the wintery/Christmasy one with Arietta giving Sync a present! Awww!) are lovely as well and I just. I was really charmed by this site. ♥ I think what really won me over was the way the art would seem almost a little simple on one page, but then I'd click onto the next one and suddenly it was really beautiful, about half of the images on the site were the kind that totally make me fall in love with the series all over again and want to go hunt down fanart for the rest of the day again. *__* (Occasional hints of pairings like Sync/Arietta or Anise/Arietta or Sync/Ion or Ion/Arietta, but nothing consistent or overwhelming, so I'd label it closest to gen of anything.)

The worst part about that is that there really isn't anyone else out there like him and the Universe really does just hand him everything. :< It only makes him even worse. :<

Yes to all of this. I mean, I like all of the Chuck cast, but I always go for the Awesome/Ellie fic first, they're just SO CUTE together!
