I'm not sure if any of you have seen the new TV version of Sense & Sensibility, but I feel the need to post about it anyway.

I've been feeling like writing again recently, so I decided to try a BSG drabble.  I wanted to write one for siljamus, as she hasn't been well lately and she's made some great BSG posts that revived my interest in writing about the show.

When I asked for writing prompts recently, siljamus said:

There's a scene towards the end of Crossroad where Lee & Romo are talking with Baltar, just before the cylons show up and Lee gets into the Viper. I desperately want to know what Lee is thinking there, about the trial, Romo, Baltar, his empty quarters.... basically the rest of his life - before Kara turns up!

This...um, is not that request.  Sorry!  It started from that idea, but after a false start, it ended up rather different.  But I hope you like it anyway.   I'm not sure how well it turned out, it's been so long since I wrote about this world and I feel a bit rusty.

I've been away for the weekend visiting family, which is why I've been delayed posting this next part.

This is the BSG humour recs - as I was saying the other day, there is some humorous pilot fic out there!

It's great to hear some of you have found new stories to read through my rec list. Part 3 is the Lee/Kara angst edition, so there was lots to choose from!

Last night I finally saw Razor - hurray!  Thoroughly enjoyed it, and now off to go back through my friends page and see what you all thought.

Watching it also raised a random question - how do they translate 'frak' for subtitles in languages other than English?  Can any of my international friends enlighten me?

Part 2 is Lee/Kara romance - I know that's a rather vague definition! They are not-too-angsty stories with mostly happy endings - stories I go to for an upbeat pilots read.

A discussion started by helen_c  about fic reccing reminded me I compiled a list of BSG fic recs ages ago, but LJ screwed up the formatting when I tried to post it, so I gave up in frustration and then kind of forgot about it.

So now I'm going to try again. It's a long list (because I'm a compulsive reader), so I'm going to post it in sections, which will be:

1) Lee-centric fic
2) Lee/Kara romance
3) Lee/Kara angst
4) Lee/Kara humour
5) Zak fic (because I love reading fic about Zak & Lee's relationship)


This is not a comprehensive list, just a selection of my personal BSG fic favourites. I'm sure there are some I have forgotten - please do rec any stories that are your own favourites in the comments.

They all feature Lee to some extent (because I’m very favourite character prejudiced and don’t read fic he doesn’t appear in - I've tried, but it just doesn't hold my interest!), and the majority are Lee/Kara, because that’s my preferred ship, sucker for angst that I am.

I have linked to LJ stories where I’ve been able to locate them, but some links are to fanfiction.net.

I have not included works in progress.

Some of the authors I've recced have written many BSG stories, and it was very hard to pick out only one or two. As a rule any story by any author I’ve recced here is worth reading.

Realising I haven't received any LJ comments for a few days, I checked the support page and discovered that LJ emails to my email provider are currently blocked!  So if i haven't replied to your message, I'm not ignoring you!  Hopefully the problem will be resolved soon.

Nearly forgot to post these....

Having read the various quizzes about common and hidden cultural knowledge going round LJ via siljamus post about Danish culture  - which made me realise how seriously lacking my knowledge about Denmark is!  - I thought I would jump on the bandwagon and do my own quiz about English culture.  If you are interested in reading more, siljamus has linked to other people's posts here.
