"NEEGATIVE FIVE STARS. What a terrible recipe! I was out of flour but
didn't want to go to the store so I substituted a cup of plaster and a cup of gravel, spray margarine for the cultured butter, and stevia drops for the sugar, and then fried the batter in bacon grease instead of baking it. And I didn't give it the 24 hour rest recommended in the recipe because I'm impatient. The results are INEDIBLE and clearly you CANNOT COOK and should DELETE YOUR BLOG."

Theme: action/adventure, outsider pov, minor characters

Summary: Vladie is sure Jupiter is caught up in something, maybe something bad, and he's bound and determined to... Well, okay, let's be honest, he's probably going make it so much worse.

Reccer's Notes: This is a fascinatingly off-beat idea. Caine and Vladie unexpectedly make a fun (and effective!) team up. The connection of their shared love for Jupiter is felt, even though she never makes an appearance in the fic.

[personal profile] psychopathicus_rex and [personal profile] icon_uk debate the definition of "folklore":

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Not to be pedantic, but (werewolves being vulnerable only to silver bullets) is strictly Hollywood - any old bullet will do. Don't muck up your folkloric credentials now!

ICON_UK: As folklore is more or less completely made up, I fail to see how Hollywood isn't as valid a source as anywhere else, considering how humans everywhere always LOVE turning things into stories.

PSYCHOPATHICUS_REX: Well, the way I look at it, Hollywood folklore is stuff you KNOW is made up - traditional folklore has generally been around for a long time, and at least stands a chance of being true. Personally, I'm a bit of a mystical type by inclination, so I prefer to give it the benefit of the doubt.

ICON_UK: I think I'm more of a Granny Weatherwax type in such things. Folklore is lore told by "folk", and how reliable have people you think of as "folk" ever been? :)

Theme: action/adventure, science fiction, small fandoms, families, families of choice

Summary: Leave some doom for the lucky ones. A season 1 vid from Johnny's POV. Warnings as listed.

Reccer's Notes: A lovely look at all the danger Team Killjoys gets up to. Especially recommended if your favourite Johnny is bad-ass Johnny, which it should be!

Fandom: Agent Carter (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Characters/Pairings: Daniel Sousa/Peggy Carter/Jack Thompson
Rating: teen
Length: 16 000 words
Creator Links: [archiveofourown.org profile] sholio [personal profile] sholio
Theme: action/adventure, undercover as a couple, pretend couple, m/m/f threesomes, polyamory, casefic

Summary: "Due to your deplorable habit of showing up at all hours of the day and night, any useful Leviathan-related gossip from the neighbors has been replaced by speculation that 'Marge' is cheating on poor 'Dan' with a blond scoundrel -- Jack, if you don't stop laughing, I will hit you with my shoe." (Or: Peggy and Daniel go undercover as a married couple in the suburbs.)

Reccer's Notes: Really fun undercover as a couple fic, plus Jack who just can't seem to stay away. Lots of in-character banter, and the danger that seems to follow Peggy everywhere.

dirty_diana: Hawkeye and Black Widow in Avengers film (clintasha)
[personal profile] dirty_diana posting in [community profile] fancake
Fandom: Avengers (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Characters/Pairings: Clint Barton/Bruce Banner
Rating: teen
Length: 12 000 words
Creator Links: [archiveofourown.org profile] qwanderer
Theme: action/adventure, au: fairy tales, au: fusions, crossovers/fusions

Summary: Bruce Banner hasn't left this tower since the Incident. It's really quite generous of Ross to continue to let him live here, after how disastrously wrong the experiments went - here, where he can maybe avoid hurting anyone else ever again.

Then some guy with a bow shows up.

Reccer's Notes: This is a really fun Avengers/Tangled mashup, with Bruce as the princess who doesn't even realise that he needs to be saved. Sassy chameleon Tony Stark may be my favourite fanfic animal familiar.

[personal profile] dirty_diana posting in [community profile] fancake
Fandom: Avengers (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Characters/Pairings: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanov, Thor, Bruce Banner, Loki, Clint Barton
Rating: sfw
Length: 2m45s
Creator Links: [tumblr.com profile] avengergasm, on youtube
Theme: action/adventure

Summary: victory's within the mile/almost there, don't give up now/only thing that's on my mind/is who's gonna run this town tonight. Contains fast cuts, fast action, stuttery/strobey effects (multiple cuts within the same scene, black cards between frames).

Reccer's Notes: So this song is pretty overused as action vids go, but I promise you won't even notice! The vidder does a lot of cool things with the musicality of this song, harnessing the unsettling bits and the ominous minor chords really well. They even manage to keep up with Jay Z, who's got the best percussive flow in the rap game. (If you don't know, now you know.)

Theme: action/adventure

Summary: oliver queen || “I thought the universe owed me one”. Contains fast cuts, fast action, stuttery/strobey effects (multiple cuts within the the same scene, black cards between frames), some light flashes.

Reccer's Notes: I've recced this vidder before, but I think their dynamic work fits perfectly into the theme. Contains lots of the fun action parts of Arrow, but doesn't lose track of the narrative parts. In this case, how hard Oliver works for his city, whether anyone actually notices or not.
