This is definitely the year of blockbuster movies where you think: they did intend that threesome to be canon, right? Anterograde
is a movieverse Spider-man
story, Harry/Peter/MJ, and well, yes. Exactly. I couldn't imagine a scenario in the earlier two movies where that would work, but here? Perfect.
Moving over to ye pirates, butterfly
has great Elizabeth/Will/Jack meta
, on all three characters, their journeys and their entwined lives. Incidentally, I think the reason why these particular three would now work for me as a threesome when they wouldn't before is that before, I had trouble seeing Will as the equal of the other two. Which At World's End
changed, along with changing the nature of his relationships with both Elizabeth and Jack, and thus it works. I'm looking forward to reading the fictional results. (Though not as much as I look forward to reading bwinter
writing Elizabeth and Calypso. And meta on Calypso. I really, really love the new mythology!) All the Way Home
is a great series of glimpses at Elizabeth (and Barbossa, and Jack) during the next ten years.
Meanwhile, in Heroes
country: one of the benefits of fanfic is that it allows us to explore characters and relationships that were only sketched in the primary text. Cockroaches
is a fascinating look at Eden. Her interactions with the Sureshs, father and son, and with Mr. Bennet, but most of all at Eden herself, and what a power such as hers did and didn't do to and for her.
There is a "first kiss" meme making the rounds, which I won't participate in, thus robbing all of you of the chance to dare me to write that John Locke/Danielle Rousseau smooch I still hope will happen one day on the show (what?); I'm just happy with reading other people's hard work. yahtzee63
from the Five Years Gone
'verse, and it's quiet and heartbreaking and so true; she also wrote Nathan/Heidi
in the Heroes
verse proper, and, because I couldn't resist asking, an Alias
crossover: Jack Bristow/Angela Petrelli
. This being Yahtzee, they are all superb. Go read!
