Cracktastic Fic Rec [15 Jul 2008|09:19pm]

jenthegypsy
dustyirish2003 has posted the most cracktastic crack fic ever. It's called A Marriage of Convenience, and features Desmond/Penny, Daniel/Charlotte and ... more.

It's a certifiable riot that should include a BEVERAGE WARNING - I'm just sayin'.

Let her know you liked it, cause I think if we feed this plot bunny, there may be more!

Lullaby for Aaron by isis2015 [29 Jun 2008|12:12am]

toestastegood
I'm not a huge 'shipper of Charlie/Claire on the show, but isis2015's fic Lullaby for Aaron reminds me of all the things that I do love about them. It's a short, bittersweet AU written for lostpicksix, rated PG.

Three Recs [21 Jun 2008|11:42pm]

elliotsmelliot
Here are three stories you should be reading. All of them look at events of season 4 from an unique perspective and deal with fallout from the finale.

1. Neighborhood Watch by sedauny is a lovely Rose POV that explores the personalities and relationship of the stranded freighter folk, especially Miles.

2. Yet Shall They Live by tinkerbell99 is a chilling and cryptic look at the messages from beyond received by the Oceanic 6.

3. See the World by hollycomb is an unforgettable and powerful series that examines life onboard the freighter as told by Captain Gault whose experience is coloured by his twisted relationship with Keamy and his strange connection to Faraday.

Science and Magic - Daniel [15 Jun 2008|09:10am]

jenthegypsy
toestastegood has posted a dandy new fic called Science and Magic. It takes up with Daniel and the occupants of the Zodiac right after the disappearance of the Island and a finer characterization of Daniel (outside of the_constant) you will never find. There is meat to this fic, at just over 5600 words there is enough to satisfy, but still I wanted more. It is entwined perfectly with Island reality and perception, but is mainly so darn enjoyable because Daniel is so exactly Daniel!

Science and Magic.

The Arms of Morpheus [03 Jun 2008|10:36pm]

jenthegypsy
hendercats has posted a beautiful Desmond ficlet titled The Arms of Morpheus. Weighing in at 423 words, it is a wonderful example of tight, purposeful writing which delivers monumental impact while soothing the reader with rhythmic repetition and tugging at the heartstrings at the same time. Spoilerish ending prompts this warning for 4x13 - There's No Place Like Home.

The Arms of Morpheus If you enjoy it, be sure to let hendercats know. Also, take a little time to cruise through the older fic rec'ed here - most of the authors are long gone, but their words live on forever!

001. when you're dead by slybrunette
lost, jack/sawyer/claire, r, 1500ish
But of an insta-rec as she just posted it today, but, so. damn. good. It's this kind of desolate and needy and lonely, but at the same time beautiful, thing. Anytime anybody writes this pairing my instant reaction is "Yay, Jawyercita!" But this is honestly one of the best I have read. She has a way with these three that seems to get better every time she writes them. Her characterization is fantastic, especially Claire. And Sawyer's voice is spot on. Just... lovely.

002. thought that was a good solution by astra2104
lost, jack/sawyer, pg-ish?, drabble
A beautiful heartwrenching little drabble with reflections on the season 4 finale. It made me miss reading these two. Oh gosh, boys. This felt old school somehow, and it broke my heart.

*dusts off poor, neglected comm* [26 May 2008|07:43pm]

jenthegypsy
the_constant is home to an absolutely amazing multi-part Desmond fic written by the amazing team of infinitenesmith and hauntermooneyes called The Universal Constant. An excerpt from their own Introduction states: It's been a little less than a year since all the problems have been sorted out with the survivors of Oceanic 815, the mysterious island on which they were marooned, and its other inhabitants. But Desmond Hume is finding it difficult to re-adjust to life. He's plagued by nightmares and disturbing visions. He always feels as if he's being watched. Is it paranoia, or something far more sinister?

Begun before the airing of the acclaimed S4 episode entitled THE CONSTANT, this lushly detailed and perfectly voiced story is posted in long, luxurious chapters which are a joy to read. You can wrap yourself up in them and settle in with a cuppa, as a real treat to yourself. The Universal Constant is a Crossover fic, melding Desmond, Penny, Daniel, and other Lost characters with the nasty, time-meddling Auditors from Discworld. Don't know about Discworld, or what an Auditor is? Never mind - I didn't either, and I'm in love with this series! Brother Campbell and Mrs. Hawking also make rather important appearances, as do the two baddest of the bad boys from Lost canon.

I can't emphasise how wonderfully The Universal Constant is written, how the character voices and actions take over to the extent that you feel you are watching and hearing rather than reading, how perfectly the Auditors fit into the revelation of what has been happening to Desmond for so long. I wouldn't be surprised to see Darlton bring them into play in the show before all is said and done.

In fact, I keep looking for Discworld book titles to appear on the Island bookshelves!

Song of the Fallen Soldier by tinkerbell99. This story centers on Alex, and her life with the Others, in particular her relationships with Ethan and with Goodwin. I like the way the author fleshes out Alex's world and her life and makes it seem as real as anything else we've seen on the island. I also like the way she writes Alex, the contrast between Ethan and Goodwin, and the way they change Alex. It's a really good story.

Sector Fifteen by toestastegood. This is an AU, which transplants the familiar Lost characters into a highly structured, post-apocalyptic world. The trick of an AU is being able to make the characters recognizably the same under altered circumstances, and this story really pulls it off. The pairing is Charlie/Sawyer, but in a way that seemed almost secondary to the appeal of the way this author writes Sawyer and his blossoming relationships with people, Charlie included. This story is so fresh and different and original.

off the island [04 Oct 2006|09:33am]

Hi guys!

My name is Jeff Heimbuch. I may have spoken to some of you before.
As some of you may know, I've been working on a Lost fan film the past few months entitled "Off The Island."
Here's a brief sysnopsis:
Chase Jackson is a private investigator who does a damn good job of finding people.
But when he finds out that his brother, Scott Jackson, has disappeared on Oceanic Flight 815, things begin to change.
A mysterious stranger shows up with some startling answers.
A computer dominates his life.
A very menacing organization is hunting him down.
And just how far will Chase go to save his brother's life?
The film takes place between Day One through Day Twenty-Seven.

The reason I'm emailing you today is because we just finished shooting, and have a bunch of news to give out to the public.

The official release date for "Lost - Off The Island" is November 15th, 2006, at 9 PM Eastern time.

It will be distributed uninterrupted on http://www.bamferproductions.com
It will also be on http://youtube.com/profile?user=bamfer23, but will be available in segments there.

It will also premiere at William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ on Friday November 17th, 2006. There will be a screening, a Q&A with the cast and crew, bloopers, food, and so on. If you are interested in going to this event, please email me at jeff@bamferproductions.com. Also, I will post more information when it is closer to that day.

The Ecological Community Development Project website will be up and running Oct. 9th, 2006, and will be located at www.ecdproject.com. I will repost the link again when the site is open.

The trailer we just released is Teaser Trailer #2, and is located at:

And for those of you who missed out on it the first time, here is the first Teaser Trailer released in July 2006.

Fade to Black by arabella_hope. Shannon has an unusual way of dealing with her rage. This is dark almost to the point of being scary, but it's also so very perfectly in character for Shannon.

Prophecy (part 2) by alliecat8. Nobody takes what Sawyer considers his. This story draws on flashes of the past in a highly effective way, granting us insight into Sawyer so razor-sharp and clear that it hurts.

Circumstance by halfdutch. This story is so amazing, I think because everything about it is so unexpected. It's captivity fic, but from Alex's pov. And it's femslash, pairing Alex with Kate, in a way that completely makes sense and is very much in character. This story is fresh and original and different and very well done.

Whisper Through Skin [part 2 | part 3 | conclusion] by sweet_crazyass. This story is beautifully written, and deeply sensual. The sensory details are integral to the plot, which is just genius. The characters are very well explored, without the liberty of real dialogue. Be warned -- the characters look into the abyss here, and it is unrelentingly dark.

Derelict by philomel

Why this must be read: This story has one of the hottest sex scenes I've ever read. There's a long, slow build-up to it that just adds to the tension. But the words and the details and the descriptions of the act itself are precise and poetic and very explicit. At the same time, the focus on actions rather than emotions or words is also very fitting for these two characters and the way they relate to each other.

Excerpt: She looked nearly savage, hair black in the night air and rustling in wisps around her head, sweat shining on her pink flesh. He thought she looked like someone who belonged to the world, and yet to no one. An outcast, turned away from the pack, strayed from the flock. They fit together, then. Whatever they were, they were the same kind.

Possession by lunadatura

Why this must be read: writes gorgeous prose, with unique insight into the characters. The pairings she writes are fairly unusual, but they are absolutely believable in her capable hands. Here, she uses Jack as almost an observer to great effect. The reader rides along with him, feeling his confusion and his longing. At the same time, the small details she chooses make the story spring to life.

Excerpt: Charlie is writing songs again. They're not much now, not really - chord progressions that he likes, snatches of melody, complex and raveled, heavy with the push pull push of addiction and withdrawal. But they're coming, steady and insistent, and they're better than they have been in years. There's a song about a man who carries knives and secrets, a song about a child born to the sea and the wild, a song about two millionaires, doomed and glittering, clinging to each other like binary stars. There's a song about Sawyer. That one is Charlie’s favorite: hard and sad, full of prairie longing and city dirt. He plays it when he’s alone, sending it like a prayer into the empty sky. It’s full of words that he doesn’t say in public -- ache, heart, please, yes, come back come back come back. If anyone heard him sing about Sawyer, he thinks, it would shatter into meaningless bits of sound, the happenstance noises of hit steel strings.

It is in this way – playing it out slowly, note by note, line by line – that Charlie learns he has fallen in love.

this act of searching by thedorkygirl

Why this must be read: I love this story because it's like no other Lost story I've ever read. It's post-rescue, and narrated by a first person original character, but does neither of those things in the usual way. Boone is the one who's no longer on the island, and the narrator is his nurse, trying to heal him and piece together his story. The quality of writing, and the places it takes you in so few words, is astounding.

Excerpt: What they've pieced together from the little black box is that the storms interfered with the navigational systems on the plane, it got lost, and wandered directly into the path of the largest storm. At least, the wreckage was found near where the largest storm had been located. Think of it like this: it rained, your glasses got fogged, and you stepped into the street where you were swept into a gutter and drowned.

Only imagine that you didn't drown. That's what happened to them.

Spooks by alliecat8

Why this must be read: It's pretty rare, in my experience, to find fanfic that can compete with literary fiction, and this story does. Set in Sawyer's southern past, there's a style and tone and sense of place in this story that remind me of the writing of Eudora Welty or Flannery O'Connor. It's that same writing style that makes this simple story so effectively spooky. Adding to the shivers the reader gets at the end is how prescient this story was in terms of things that happened on the show.

Excerpt: But he wasn’t a coward, so he followed without saying a word. The screen door slammed behind them, bounced and slammed again, and something that might have been a raccoon scurried across the yard. The grass was cold and wet with dew under his bare feet as he ran to keep up with his papaw’s long strides. Moss and mud squished between his toes as they got closer to the river’s edge. The moon was so high that it almost looked like daytime, except that the water of the Little Pigeon River was blacker than the sky as it slid and gleamed over massive dark rocks. He stubbed his toe on one of the pebbles that littered the shore, but he didn’t cry out, didn’t remind his papaw that his mamaw didn’t let him come down here without shoes. James was tough, and he’d prove it.
