What the Frak is Wep Reading? Week (I'm not even sure)
Just when I thought I was out, blah, blah, blah. So you asked for it (at least Frea did), and when you ask for it (well, when Frea asks for it), be careful what you wish for, I guess. So at long last, the column that recommends fics that you may, or may not have read returns in full force. It's time for What the Frak is Wep Reading?
So let's see if I remember how to do this. First, I'm supposed to recommend a multi-chapter fic, right? Well okay, I'll start there.
Something many of you know about me (but I'm sure some don't) is that I love college football. Like, L-O-V-E it. I'm not a huge sports nut. I was as a kid, but then I got older and discovered girls, and... yeah. But anyway, the point is, I left most of my sports obsession around the same time I realized that, yeah, boobs are cool. The one exception to that? College football. I love it. The pageantry and tradition, the mascots and coeds, the marching bands and option offenses? I love all of those things.
Now you're probably asking yourself, "Wep, what the frak does college football have to do with Chuck fanfic?" It's a fair question, and fortunately, I have an answer.
A long time ago, someone made the AWESOME decision to mix college football, and Chuck fanfiction. And seeing as I'm a huge college football fan, I'd be remiss if I didn't recommend this story at least once, so that's what I'm here to do.
Oh, and other thing. This story has this great summary: Five Times Chuck and Sarah share a bed for their cover (and one time they just do). Hah! That's right. College football, and Chuck/Sarah goodness. What else could a boy from SEC country want?
So now, without further ado, I present to you Hazelnutcoffee12's Come Away With Me.
And if I remember correctly, my second recommendation of the week is to be a one-shot, yes? Well, I have just the story.
Now, I know many of you do not dig non-canon pairings. I know even fewer of you dig slash or femslash. That's okay, that's your right. But just to warn, the second entry this week is a femslash story.
Now it's not gross, or explicit, or even does it involve any sex or even heated kissing (though it does hint that such things may be on the horizon), but it's all about the girl-love. And honestly, it has Anna Wu in it, so you know I love it right off the bat.
Oh, and as a bonus, this fic certainly passes the Bechdel Test, with the entire story focusing on Anna and Sarah, and hardly any mention of men is made (although there is a funny scene in which Anna and Sarah hide out from Jeffster).
And one last cool thing about this story. It's not listed in ANY of the Chuck archives I visit. Not the slashy ones, not the regular ones. I really came upon this by happenstance, and I was happy that I did, as I can bring to you a hidden gem. So I'll quit going on about it now, and present you with voleuse's Garnet Ambassadors.
That's all for this week. I hope you enjoy these stories, and as always, please leave reviews for these fantastic authors!
