[Click on the image to go to the meme.]

Type of h/c: Allll the types!
Your thoughts/reasons why people should look at it: This is our latest themed meme over at hoodie_time, (a comm for the show "Supernatural," focusing on Dean-centric h/c) And we'd just love to have anyone that's interested come playyy. ♥

SPN: Now's the Time, the Time is Now

Type of h/c: Angst, Illness (cold/flu/fever)
Title: Now's the Time, the Time is Now
Author/Artist: vie_dangerouse
Rating: No rating, but roughly PG-13
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: None/Gen
Warnings: canon character death discussion (Season 3)
Direct link to piece: http://vie-dangerouse.livejournal.com/18636.html
Your thoughts/reasons why people should look at it: A beautiful piece set during my favorite season of SPN. A couple weeks before Dean's time is up, he comes down with a cold/flu/fever type of thing. Not a great way to spend what time you have remaining. But it does lend itself to more reflection. This story uses little asides and dialoge from the show as flashbacks, giving it the feel of lots of different times and moments converging into one. It's a great character piece and you just can't help but want to hug these guys.

Avengers: Macho when you're dead

Type of h/c: Illness
Title: Macho when you're dead
Author: ysande
Rating: G
Fandom: The Avengers
Pairing: None (Gen)
Warnings: None
Direct link: http://ysande.livejournal.com/1009.html
Your thoughts/reasons why people should look at it: A fantastic look at Clint (Hawkeye) when he's sick amidst fellow Avengers who are somewhat impervious to illness. We get to see him through all the stages of the illness as he fights and hides it until it gets too bad to handle. And, of course, we get to see him give into it in the end.

Hurt/Comfort Big Bang


Sign-ups for the Hurt/Comfort Big Bang end on November 30, 2011. I'm writing a fanfic for it--are you? If not, they also need beta readers and artists. And they need people to help spread the word. Please share the h/c love :-)

NCIS Fic: Damage

Type of h/c: angst/emotional, rape/non-con, sexual abuse
Title: Damage
Author: Xanthe
Rating: NC-17
Fandom: NCIS
Pairing: Tony/various, Tony/Gibbs
Warnings: underage rape/non-con and sexual abuse... and an emotional recovery
Direct link to piece: http://xanthe.org/viewstory.php?sid=62&warning=2
Your thoughts: This is one of my favorite Xanthefics (though, to be honest, most of them are my favorite). It's a stand-alone novella-length story about Tony finally facing the demons of his past and trying to get through them. What works for me in this fic is how carefully it's constructed. It's not as simple as "I was raped, but now I'm in love!" Oh, no. It's slow and painfully realistic. And just when it seems it can't get worse, it does. Even so, Gibbs is there with strength and support. There are layers and cover-ups and all sorts of emotional discoveries. In fact, it works so well with Tony's character I had no trouble buying into it. I read it online (finished it on a train, actually). I loved it so much I bought it in zine form and I've read it again.

Sherlock Fic: Sicker Than Thou

Type of h/c: illness
Title: Sicker Than Thou
Author: travels_in_time
Rating: G
Fandom: Sherlock
Pairing: Gen
Warnings: None
Direct link to piece: http://ariadnes-string.livejournal.com/81197.html?thread=1610797#t1610797
Your thoughts: With John and Sherlock both ill, it's a battle of wits, complaints, and text messages to find out who will emerge victorious. I couldn't help but grin like an idiot while reading this. And the ending is perfection.

SGA Fic: In Sickness and Hotel Rooms

Type of h/c: illness
Title: In Sickness and Hotel Rooms
Author: taste_is_sweet
Rating: OG
Fandom: Stargate Atlantis
Pairing: Shepherd/McKay
Warnings: None
Direct link to piece: http://mckay-sheppard.livejournal.com/2978039.html
Your thoughts: All the good elements are there: feeling for fever, back rubs, thermometers, medicine, even chicken soup. But throw in Rodney being worried and a bit irritated and John feeling sick while on vacation and a bit irritated as well, and you get an awesome flu!fic!

Batman Fic: Old Enough 2: The Flu Blues

Type of h/c: illness, angst
Title: Old Enough 2: The Flu Blues
Author: Anne Higgins
Rating: FRAO (Adult)
Fandom: Batman
Pairing: Bruce/Dick
Warnings: Slash. Dick is 16 and Bruce's ward. IOW, UNDERAGE fic.
Direct link to piece: http://www.squidge.org/~peja/cgi-bin/viewstory.php?sid=30585
Your thoughts: Dick's moody, recovering from the flu and feeling insecure. I don't usually read underage fics, but I stumbled upon this one and was charmed by it. I love how Dick feels all sick and unloved by the one person he wants looking after him. It dances around Batman & Robin's relationship as well as Bruce & Dick's relationship. And even though Dick spends the entire fic feeling completely miserable (including complaining and acting out for attention), it ends in a most satisfying way. But DEFINITELY read the warning here.

X-Men Fic: A Bamf Too Many

Type of h/c: illness
Title: A Bamf Too Many
Author: Pirate Turner
Rating: R for nudity and sexual content
Fandom: X-Men
Pairing: Kurt, Hank/Bobby, Surprise, Ensemble
Warnings: Het, Slash, Warped Humor, Masturbation
Direct link to piece: http://www.squidge.org/~peja/cgi-bin/viewstory.php?sid=42560
Your thoughts: If you've seen the e-mail of X-Men: Evolution where Kurt (Nightcrawler) 'ports every time he sneezes, you'll buy into this concept easily. Instead of bamfing to school, however, he winds up in much more compromised situations... for the other X-Men, at least. He teleports into bathrooms and into rooms where lovers are passionately at it. Awkward! I enjoyed watching everyone's reactions and I liked seeing his sneezes, certainly, especially when he tries not to. Poor fuzzy blue elf. Luckily, it's another furry blue X-Man to the rescue :-)

Type of h/c: illness, but there's lots of angst, etc. too.
Your thoughts/reasons why people should look at it: This is a themed meme over at hoodie_time, (a comm for the show "Supernatural," focusing on Dean-centric h/c) and the theme is feverish!Dean! ‘Fever’ is our most used h/c tag and there are so many different things you can do with it!

Anyway, the comm puts on h/c memes regularly, (they can be found here) and I thought it was about time I advertised one here. ;) Just click on the banner to come play.
