ratcreature: RatCreatures as Don and Charlie (numb3rs)
I'm missing a link to "Sacrifices of the Keeper" by Pygmymuse, gen, ca. 28,340 words. It used to be at: http://pygmymuse.livejournal.com/176845.html but the LJ has been deleted. I didn't even save a copy. :( The description from my rec: "In this AU Don and Charlie's parents are killed in a car accident, when Charlie is still a teenager."

Does anyone know whether it can be still found online somewhere?

Breaking the Code, by jlm110108. Gen. WIP
This is still a WIP, but I'm really enjoying it so far, and it seems to get updated fairly regularly. I don't know the series it is a crossover with, Foyle's War, but I like the AU premise here that has Charlie as cryptographer during WWII and Don as American soldier.

Stargate: Atlantis

Born in the Barrens, by Eildon Rhymer. Gen. (ca. 60,000 words)
It's no secret that I have a slavefic kink and a soft spot for amnesia fic, and here both go together like chocolate and hazelnuts. Still, I think even readers not sharing these kinks will enjoy this story for its good mix of angst, h/c, world-building, adventure and later on team interaction.

Until Love Can Find Me, by Isagel. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 10,900 words)
This is another one in the growing genre of Vegas-verse AUs. I really liked this take on Vegas!John, and found it an interesting variant of possible futures there, because John survives but actually doesn't get recruited by the SGC.

A Narrow Bridge, by Kass. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 18,430 words)
I thought this was one of the more unusual SGA AU scenarios I've encountered, and only in part because it's a non-stargate AU that put them in a yeshiva instead, which is quite a step from SF soldier hero with geek sidekick, but even more because it's unusual that in an AU John and Rodney do more or less both the same thing, rather than meeting by chance. Still I enjoyed the AU, and I liked the glimpses we got of their backstories (I'd totally read a prequel to this giving me more of this John's history).

Iron and Steel, by Leah. Slash, John Sheppard/Rodney McKay. (ca. 57,300 words)
I've recced all the other stories in this series with John and Cameron as AIs already, and continue to love the universe. In this installment they encounter an alternate universe robot!Cam from a more dystopian universe.

In a Grain of Sand, by Sarah T. Gen, John Sheppard. (ca. 540 words)
This is very short and I don't want to spoil it, but it's a cool, twisted premise, and posted as part of the "Skeevy Ancients" flashfic challenge for a reason.

you already know how this will end, by Sarah T. Het, John/Teyla, Teyla/Michael, Teyla/Kanaan. (ca. 15,000 words)
This is a sequel to Sequelae by The Spike which I have previously recced. And I really like this hopeful resolution to that story.

Reversals, by Sealie. Gen. (ca. 750 words)
I love stories in which a Pegasus expedition for Atlantis is mounted, and Atlantis then belongs to the Pegasus peoples rather than Earth finding it first. The only downside of this story is that it sets this up, but isn't actually an epic with this premise.

Fandom: SGA/Merlin/Numb3rs
Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard, Rodney McKay, Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, Don Eppes, Charlie Eppes
Media used: pencil drawing
Rating/warnings: G, Christmas themes?
Notes/comments: I felt like trying something cartoon-style that didn't involve big-nosed creatures, so I picked my currently favorite fandoms and forced the poor characters into a Christmas card... *G*

ratcreature: RatCreature begs: Please? (please?)
Does anyone know good places to find Don-centric Numb3rs recs? Or has any recs? I don't read Don/Charlie incest, and most of the [livejournal.com profile] crack_van recs so far are that, though the current reccer is inclined towards gen, but hasn't posted many recs yet. I only read Numb3rs occasionally so I don't really know where to look. Gen and het are fine, as is non-incest slash.

I tried browsing [livejournal.com profile] numb3rsficfind but much like its SPN and SGA counterparts this seems more of a hit and miss way to find stories, also it lured me (in that "curiosity killed the cat" way) to follow a link to a multiple fandom crossover in which people turn into dragons, which could have been kind of cool only there were also souldbonds and it got worse from there, at least as far as I could tell from skimming it.

As often this season I had some trouble following the somewhat convoluted crime plot, but I like the rest of the episode: spoilers for Numb3rs 5x05 )

Watching the ep today somehow the plot seemed very fitting spoilers )

Is it just me or are the action scenes in Numb3rs exceptionally boring and are getting actually worse as time goes on?

I usually like action. I mean, I like well choreographed fight scenes better than shootings, and space battles better than car chases, but normally I enjoy all kinds of action scenes and don't have the urge to fast forward through them or to play Tetris, not even during somewhat gratuitous or lengthy action sequences. Case in point, I actually liked the car and helicopter chases in The Sentinel, though I seemed to be somewhat in the minority in the fandom. But the action scenes in this week's Numb3rs episode bored me silly.

Also not all that spoilery but cut to be on the safe side )
