odds & ends

- Outlaw Star - I Think I Said No, But I'll Say It Again by Lady Jaida - Sadly, there is precious little OLS fic out there that I actually like, so it makes me amazingly happy and squeaky when Lady Jaida writes for the series. (....okay, so I get like that when she writes for pretty much any series. XD) She captures everything I love about Fred Luo and Gene Starwind's relationship--it's a little bit hurtful because Gene is so... mm... stubborn (and straight *sulks*), but most of the time it's beautiful, sparkly fun. I *heart* her Fred so, so much, I adore her Gene, and I fucking loved Fred's bodyguard in this fic. So, so funny. XD ....why can't there be more OLS fic like this one? XD (Mild Fred+Gene.)

- Outlaw Star - Fred Luo's Piece of Heaven by Lady Jaida - There are so few OLS fics out there that I truly enjoy, much less ones about Fred that are actually really good, so thank god for this one. One of my favorite things about this story is how Fred and Gene don't just immediately go into schmoopy mode... rather the opposite, actually, as their friendship goes to hell after certain events. Neither is perfect, they both have their faults and obnoxious personality traits, and I wind up wanting to both smack and hug both of them. The banter between them is a lot of fun, even when it made my heart hurt, and the writing is great, just as I would expect from Lady Jaida. I also have to admit that I kind of like not knowing where this is going--Fred and Gene really might not ever speak to each other again, they could take a long, long time in repairing their friendship and never going on from there, or they might even find a way to work out their problems and start a relationship, and I like that for once it's not incredibly obvious where it's going. Though, erm, yeah, still pulling for that third option. Eheh. ^_^;; (Some Gene/Fred.)

- Outlaw Star - S.N.A.F.U. by Vikki - I admit, I generally don't read too many OLS stories unless Fred is one of the main characters, because I'm not hooked on the series badly enough to wade through the majority of the fic. So I just read stories by authors that I like and am content with that--so I probably wouldn't have read this one if I hadn't read Vikki's CCS and DNAngel fic, but I'm glad I did. I like Jim and it's nice to see him get to be the center of a fic, even if she's only written the first part so far. *huffy sigh* ^_~ Seriously, though, even though this fic probably won't get updated, I had fun reading just the first part, the writing is wonderful and the characterizations were wonderfully on target and it was a nice visit to a series I don't get to read about often enough. (No warnings.)

- Outlaw Star - Things Fall Apart by XmagicalX & Gnine - I almost never check the OLS section at FFNET and instead only read fics by authors I already know I like. So I don't get to read too much fic, which is a shame, because I really liked the series. And, hey, for once I read a fic without Fred in it! ^_~ And this fic was very well-written and the set-up is very, very good. The OLS crew loses one of their own and the way the authors wrote the reactions, wrote all the characters in the three chapters they have done (Waahhh! Want more!) were perfect, just wonderfully insightful and in line with the original series itself. Plus, I'm genuinely interested in the plot, wondering what's going to happen next. ^_^v (No warnings/pairings.)
