Last Day of Vacation

So now I'm reading Twilight fic, because I'm always going to want another "The peaceable kingdom". I'm basically just reading stuff of the TV Tropes rec page and most of it is hilariously anti-canon, which is the way I LIKE my Twilight fic. ETA: It's official, I kind of want Leah to set all these bastards on fire. Maybe the books aren't as creepy in this case? Because I'm getting a lot of "Leah can't have kids so she's broken and WILL NEVER HAVE LOVE and will also be a heinous bitch forever" and, um, FUCK YOU. Also, fuck imprinting.

Victorious fandom is making me sad, because there's no Jade/Tori to be found. It's all Cat/Jade and Tori/Cat and, y'all, Cat is like a teen, human, supernaive Trance Gemini (before the color swap) and I cannot deal with that character in a romantic or sexual context. Like, I managed a Trance/Harper fic once on the strength of my xenokink (prehensile tail!), but Cat does not have that going for her.

I am thinking about my big bang. Do I want to do forty or fifty stories and stick to a theme or do I want to go balls-out and shoot for the 150+ like last time? Honestly, the latter sounds kind of exhausting, but I have this thing about outperforming and the smug/glee might actually make it worth it.

No, the books are TOTALLY as creepy, if not creepier. Leah, however, is Accidentally Awesome. (You know--the character that the author wants you to hate...except that he or she is fifty billion times more interesting and/or more heroic than the supposed protagonists.)

Would you like a link to a Leah Clearwater & Winchester Brothers fic in which the three of them (and Castiel, naturally) take on the Cullens and the wolf pack? It is funny and infuriating and ultimately fantastic. Also, it highlights just how many different kinds of WRONG the Twilight series contains, and how sane people (as opposed to most of Meyer's characters) would deal with that.

Here's the summary:

After two years on her own, and two more as a hunter with Sam and Dean Winchester, Leah thought she’d escaped her old life at La Push. But when she’s called home to attend Jacob and Renesmee’s wedding, she brings a little company, and the stage is set for her old and new lives to collide.

Okay, here you go:


Chapter 1--Don't Bring Me Down (Leah Clearwater)
Chapter 2--Sharp Dressed Man (Leah Clearwater)
Chapter 3--Indian Love Call (Jacob Black, and written VERY deliberately in Meyer's style as the best way to highlight the problems with Meyer's people)
Chapter 4--The Stroke (Sam Winchester)
Chapter 5--Death on Two Legs (Sam Winchester)
Chapter 6--Paper Sun (Sam Winchester)
Chapter 7--High Crimes and Misdemeanors (Dean Winchester)
Chapter 8--Snakeskin Cowboys (Dean Winchester)
Chapter 9--Eat the Rich (Dean Winchester)
Chapter 10--Bonfire (Leah Clearwater)
Chapter 11--If You Want Blood (Leah Clearwater)
Epilogue--Bad Reputation (Sam Winchester)

I hope you like it. I think you will, because Mervin and Hyde are BRILLIANT.
