Mrs Stanwood's Birthday Party (Poirot/Hastings, G, 20,000+ words) This reads like another Christie book, to put it plainly. Even if ultimately it's about Hastings and Poirot (and that was very well-written), I loved Edna in this, she's a really awesome female character and I was very pleasantly surprised to see the mystery enfold. Very clever.
Five Ways Omar Remembers Brandon (Omar/Brandon, NC-17, 2010 words) Omar was the best thing about The Wire (though the show itself was kind of the best thing about television too so we're talking quality anyway). It's a simple fic, kind of what you expect from the title but I had a really good time reading this because I miss this show so and it hits the right notes.
The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
The First Year After the Sisterhood (Tibby/Brian, Tibby/Lena, mentions Lena/Leo and Lena/Kostos, 13,905 words, PG-13) This was beautiful. I personally saw the movies and I really enjoy them because I can't think of that many movies about the friendship between artistic or driven teenage girls that pass the Bechdel Test. This fic is about what follows the second movie - I loved how detailed this was, how deep the author went into each personality and I was very interested in what Lena and Tibby were doing artistically and it was lovely to see their friendship blossom as well. Besides, the language is really exquisite at parts, which is always precious.
Finally, I hope everyone has tons of fun this weekend - I love Hallowe'en and wish I could dress up & play properly. I also wish I had more spooky recs for you this week but I didn't stumble upon any recently, which is a real shame!
Writers on my flist - wish you all a smashing success with all your Nanowrimo endeavours, and to all, a fabulous month of November :)
