Methos - Shadow

Self Recs Fest: 'Silver Service' (01/01)

I'm going to cross post the recs I'm making for the self recs fest at hl_recs since some of them are older stories you may have missed the first time around.

First up....

Title: Silver Service
Pairing & Rating: Methos/Amanda, Duncan/Amanda, implied Methos/Rebecca/Amanda, R for sexual content.
Why this must be read: This is an older story, and I can't say too much about it because it would ruin the twist at the end - this is my M. Night Shyamalan moment when it comes to fic. What I love was how it started as a romantic gift fic and then... boy, did it take a wrong turn at Albuquerque! And the end, the twist, it was terrific fun to be able to pull the rug out at the end and surprise the reader. This is still one of my favourites.
Methos - Easily Amused

Self Recs Fest: 'The House of Keebler' (01/01)

Title: The House of Keebler
Pairing & Rating: None, G, gen, crossover with Marvel Movies/Thor.
Why this must be read: This is one of my more recent ones, and on the plus side, it's short. I don't write humour/lighthearted very often, so this is one of the exceptions. I just had to know what Methos' reaction would be to meeting Thor, the God of Thunder, and this is the result: Methos and Duncan walk into a bar....
Methos - Cheers

Self Recs Fest: 'Let Not Your Heart Be Tribbled' (01/01)

Title: Let Not Your Heart Be Tribbled
Author: ithildyn
Pairing & Rating: Gen, not rated, Duncan/Tribble [g]
Why this must be read: From 2006, technically a crossover with Classic Trek, but if you know what a tribble is, you're set. Duncan, Joe, and Methos have a stopover at Deep Space Station K-7 and Duncan finds true love in the form of a trilling furball.

The 1861 Project

We've been watching Homeland, and I wondered what Damian Lewis's real voice sounded like, as I've only ever seen him on roles playing Americans. So along the way, we were at IMDB and saw a project he was involved in called 'To Appomattox', and then found the website. It sounds fascinating. Anyway, from there, I found The 1861 Project, The 1861 Project begins as a collection of original songs that imagine the stories of the real people who fought and lived through the Civil War.... I've downloaded the first volume, 'From Farmer to Foot Soldier', and it's excellent I'm looking forward to future volumes.
Nature - Wolf

Once Upon a Time

Watched the pilot tonight and was pleasantly surprised. The ads made it seem sort of a fairytale Desperate Housewives, but it wasn't like that at all. Looking forward to seeing the next episode.
