Battlestar Galactica

The name of this story is your name by [livejournal.com profile] beccatoria
You are a Cylon. Ellen Tigh tries to explain it to you, before she dies, coughing in the smoke of the campfire; weak as Laura Roslin was at the end.

"The Five," she says. "We were born. We grow old. We die. The replacement bodies we made for our own resurrection were just clones. When we made you, we had to start from scratch. Your cells never stop replenishing themselves. I thought I was doing you a favour."

She laughs.

You look at her and don't know whether she is your mother.

You say, "You named all the others. John and Leoben and D'Anna and Simon and Aaron and Daniel and Sharon. Why didn't you name me?"

Ellen coughs in the smoke. "You asked us not to," she says.

You understand that.
epic, heartbreaking story of Caprica and human history.

Fringe

Orphan by [archiveofourown.org profile] rainer76
A series of interviews between Lincoln Lee and Peter Bishop, set between episodes 4:04 and 4:05 "I had a home. I didn't for the longest time and then I did. You wouldn't fight to keep that?" Peter asks, his voice so very low.

Lincoln feels flayed open by his gaze, hard as sapphire, recognition sizzles through him. I know you, Lincoln thinks, amused and startled and close to touching. Something inside of Lincoln realigns.

"I am."

They're never going to see eye-to-eye about which time-line is correct, they're going to be forever opposed, and surprisingly, Lincoln's okay with that.
Sharp, smart look at one way Peter's return could (but won't) go.

The Good Wife

Nothing About Ecstasy by [personal profile] templemarker
Alicia gets drunk and Kalinda takes care of her. Sharp and lovely. "You think I betrayed you," she continued, stating the obvious in that way she used truth as a bludgeon. She used mistruths like a scalpel. Kalinda was a cache of weapons in a miniskirt and a misleading ponytail. "I didn't."

Harry Potter

Because It Is My Heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] magnetic_pole
Alice is not very pretty, at least not the way Lily is--she's a bit overweight, with a round face and short, coarse hair and a bump on her chin that Petunia secretly thinks of as the hogwart. But she's very bright and quick to learn, and she's absolutely fearless, and she likes Petunia, and that's enough. Actually, that's more than Petunia has ever imagined. Alice always makes Petunia feel as if something wonderful is about to happen to her, and it's a new and heady state of affairs. This is really lovely, bittersweet in the best ways.

Inception

The Wrath of The Whatever From High Atop The Thing by [livejournal.com profile] amazingly_me
West Wing fusion, where Arthur is Sam and Eames is Danny (sort of). "When you are a robot," Eames says, "and are approached by-- oh, I don't know, let's say a really evil microwave-- with a rudimentary outline of the machines' plans to take over the world, promise that after you have risen up to become their great and terrible and incredibly efficient leader, that you'll tell them not to kill me."

"Is it possible that you're just drunk all the time?" Arthur asks.

"It's certainly possible," Eames says, "but it isn't actually true."

"I won't let the microwaves get you," Arthur promises. "I'll probably want to kill you myself, anyway."

"Good point."
Utterly adorable.

Fringe

This Side by [livejournal.com profile] phrenitis

Harry Potter

The Way Back To Daylight by [livejournal.com profile] trailingoff
Remus travels to the underworld to bring Sirius back. Really nicely done, full of mythological references. "Are you sure this is the quickest way?"

"Why wouldn't it be?" she asked, sharp and brisk, without sparing him a glance.

"Sirius...my friend, he fell through a veiled archway in the Department of Mysteries. I assume it leads directly to the Underworld."

"No one can pass through the veil and remain alive; not even with the bough," said Sybill. "There are seven entrances to the Underworld, scattered around higgledy-piggledy, and the veil isn't one of them. It's just a short-cut, or an open window; a passage straight to the final judgement."

Remus followed her across the grass, his eyes on the Tor, but all he could see was Sirius falling backwards through the archway; that split-second, that knowledge of loss.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

First and Last Rites by Ade
"Savannah, I know you miss your mother," she says, not turning to look at Savannah but staring at the white lines of the Interstate. Sarah wonders if the girl ever suspected there was something off about Weaver. She must have, a child would always know its own mother, just as a mother would always know her child—Sarah has to believe that Sarah takes Savannah to keep her safe (train her) after Born to Run. Sharp and smart and not a little heartbreaking

Out of the Void by such_heights
Sarah kneels down, resting for a moment as she locks the safe again. Somewhere, no more than ten blocks from here, Ellison is doing the same. Sarah's ritual is different, but perhaps it is no less a prayer, no less an act of faith. Suddenly, she wishes she had a candle. She bows her head, her hand her collarbone above her heart, where she still aches fiercely for the son she lost. Yet it is with the same ache that she knows that he is alive, that he is fighting, and that she will see him again, whether it is victory or defeat that awaits them. Lovely snippet in which Sarah communicates with John across time.

WALL-E/Battlestar Galactica

Merry-Go-Round by Nope
Really fascinating BSG/WALL-E crossover, with D'Anna on earth during its devastation. If you could draw a line in time and space, sketch life ordered from conception to completion, it would begin here, as it ends here; in between, the loop traces from one colony to twelve to one, from Caprica to Galactica to New Caprica, from me to me to me, loops within loops, deaths within deaths, rising and falling forever. All of this has happened before. All of it.

Battlestar Galactica/The Handmaid's Tale

Blessed Be The Fruit by [livejournal.com profile] daybreak777
A BSG AU set in the world of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale. Fantastic - it takes the show's gender and reproductive issues and follows them to their logical - and horrifying - conclusions. Brilliantly done. I love that it's Caprica, and that Sonja and Boomer and Athena are involved, and that Ellen and Saul are still together and still as impotent to effect change as they ever were.

House/Supernatural

My Brother's Keeper by [livejournal.com profile] ducks_in_a_row

I have a sewing machine from--" from his aunt's garage, an old Singer with three stitches. "Yeah, I make my own gear." He used plain old swimsuit material from the store, fused on a dumpster-dived ironing board with rubber webbing for strength. Took him about six hours per piece, which was why it was such a BITCH when some jerk shredded one. / "That isn't mechanized?" Dr. Richards looked surprised. "But your security system--what kind of server do you have?" / "Uh..." Peter looked at the robots, stamping out tracer after tracer. Utterly adorable sequel to "Paparazzo" (previously recced). *hearts Peter Parker*
