Just found out Vir's actor has passed. As if I didn't have all the B5 feels already lately! Dammit dammit dammit! :( Too many beyond the rim. Too sharding many.

*repeats to self* The actor may be dead, but the character's not. The actor may be dead, but the character's not...

I would do well to remember this.

Ah to heck with it. What do folks think? I'm dying to know, and to get this out there and seen, and my season 1 feels (mostly season 1, though not entirely so) and who am I kidding, my specific *character* feels are still painful and how (oh, sir), and I'm so sharding touch-starved that Talia went OOC as I bled over, and and and...

Pairings seen or hinted at: Talia Winters/Jeffrey Sinclair (nonsexual, one or two-sided depending on how you read it), Sinclair/Catherine Sakai, Winters/Susan Ivanova (one or two-sided, again depending), Sinclair/Ivanova (one-sided, as noted by a third party), Sinclair/Garibaldi (ditto), Winters/Matt Stoner (very soundly past)

For trigger warning, interest, or just general info purposes, fic contains: Nonsexual intimacy, telepathy and empathy, secrets both kept and shared, sensory overload, touch starvation, good communication, exhaustion, unrealistic societal expectations, gratuitous fantasy which the narrator admits to being so, hesitant steps toward rebellion, physical and mental adoration, a culturally-driven hand and finger kink, clear and continuous consent, canon and fanon bisexuality, voice kink and voice play, emotional and physical hurt/comfort, one sneaky reference to a later-series spoiler, poetry, nursery rhyme and folk song lyrics, Jeffrey Sinclair's iron-clad integrity (not snark, this is for real), Talia Winters sharding well deserves kindness 2K17. Rating teen and up - this is intense, and Talia does swear a couple times. Late season 1; call it 1X21, with references in narration for the beginning of 'Legacies'.

I finally got this finished and posted it to AO3. It's the first fanfiction I've written in aaaaaages. It is not, despite the pairings listed, explicit in the likely-expected ways. It qualifies as ace erotica though, very much so. Talia has some vivid daydreams late in season 1. This is definitely post 'Legacies', because one interaction gave my demisensual self the crawlies for a day and a half and inspired Talia's references to brick walls in narration... Call it somewhere around 1X21.

This is, I admit, a warm fuzzy note to a certain character who's my absolute favorite in that whole series. I'm still melting over him while grieving his actor at the same time, I've got myself rather stuck, and this helped at least somewhat. I just hope I haven't gone OOC for Talia. Suitable for teen and up audiences, watch for intense thought processes in narration and imagery to match, as well as gratuitous fantasizing, though that last is admitted by Winters herself right off the bat. And yes, the title is a reference to the English translation of the lullaby/carol. 6637 words.

All Through The Night

Please comment over there if you're going to do so. Nothing at all wrong with DW comments, but I'd really appreciate them on AO3!

I've just emerged from a mostly delightful rabbit hole of B-5 bloopers, clips and rather insightful comments. I say mostly, because I've only now (!) learned of two losses. This'll teach me to concern myself only with characters, and not with actors. Oh, Commander Sinclair. Oh, sir. I didn't know. Entil'zha, I didn't know. :( And Garibaldi too--jeez. But oh, sir. I had no idea! Two more beyond the rim, and I had no idea.

snip for something I'm ashamed to admit )

Oh, commander. I had no idea, any of it. Rest well, sir. You more than earned it.

There'll be real content once I'm back in Madison. Trust me, there will totally be content; I've finally seen AU!Star Trek, so there's definitely chattering ahead. For now, however...

Name your 15 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

1. Geordi La Forge/Leah Brahms, Star Trek TNG
2. Four/Sarah Jane Smith, Doctor Who
3. Ben Sisko/Eris, Star Trek DS9
4. Luka Kovac/Carol Hathaway, ER
5. Matt Parkman/Mohinder Suresh, Heroes
6. Chakotay/B'Elana Torres, Star Trek Voyager
7. Nyota Uhura/Hikaru Sulu,Star Trek
8. Kerry Weaver/Sandy Lopez, ER
9. Thursday Next/Landen ParkeLaine, the Thursday Next series
10. Sherlock Holmes/Irene Adler, the Sherlock Holmes series/A Scandal In Bohemia
11. Remus Lupin/Sirius Black, the Harry Potter series
12. Henry Blake/Radar O'Riley, M*A*S*H
13. Jeffrey Sinclair/Talia Winters, Babylon 5
14. Susan Ivanova/Talia Winters, Babylon 5
15. Nita Callahan/Kit Rodriguez, the Young Wizards series

The only trend I can readily spot here is a rather obvious one; why yes, I'm a Star Trek fan, why do you ask? XD

Now to make sure everything's sorted and packed, and then get my behind back to Madison.

This is dark, be warned. It came to me out of the blue, and it just... needed to be written. I may write a reunion-ish sequel to this at some point, but the muse who's a telepath first and foremost is satisfied for the moment, so not now.

Title: Where charon Left Her
Author: chanter
Fandom: Babylon 5, season 5 or thereabouts
Rating: PG13 for some very dark imagery, and because the stuff in Talia's glass isn't your average fizzy drink
Pairings: veiled but definite Susan/Talia
Summary: Not even close to the good life. Talia Winters doesn't have it easy. Note: this assumes that Talia managed to lose the implanted personality the Psi-Corps gave her and regain control of herself.

OK, I just have to say that for this one, [ profile] medie made me do it. :)

Really though she did, as this is my answer to her first lines meme and also a reply to her five people Sam Carter met in 2265. It was her description of Delenn that sparked this, and I'm shamelessly playing with a B5/SG1-verse that she dreamed up--please don't kill me for this? It just had to be written.

Characters/pairings: Susan/Janet
