 For those of you who are interested, the cast recording has now been released on download and streaming. The CD version is due to be released in November.

More info here: https://www.broadwayworld.com/article/First-Listen-Jake-Gyllenhaal-and-Annaleigh-Ashford-Perform-Move-On-from-SUNDAY-IN-THE-PARK-WITH-GEORGE-Cast-Recording-20170921 

I've taken a look at the track listing, and RSL sings on 'No Life' which is only 1:45 mins long. He is also part of the ensemble on about 3 or 4 other songs.

Fandom: Yuri!!! on Ice
Title: who can sing both high and low
Pairing/Character Focus: Otabek Altin/Yuri Plisetsky (Yuri-centric)
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] infiniteandsmall
What makes this a gem:
It’s startling to watch videos of his practices and see angles where he’d seen straight lines, broad shoulders where he’d seen a waist that had made him think sometimes, in a cool quick flash, girl.
Yuri on Ice takes place in a world without homophobia, and a couple fanwriters have taken that idea and run with it: why not consider it a world without transphobia as well? What if you tell a story about someone figuring out their gender, and the only difficulty they face is in finding the right version of themselves? This is that story for Yuri Plisetsky, who's now eighteen, a lot taller and broader, and starting to miss the days when he was encouraged to be pretty. The narrative voice is perfectly suited to the story; it's vivid and opinionated and gentle, all at once. And the compassion in Yuri's relationships with the important people in his life is like a balm to the soul. As a bonus, I really love this version of Otabek, who is warm and patient and wry and shows pictures of Yuri to his mom.

This is the second story in a series, but it stands alone pretty easily--you get all the context you need in the first couple paragraphs. That said, of course, the rest of the series is well worth reading too!

(Hi mods! Could I get an Otabek/Yuri tag for this post? Thanks!!)

Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Title: bystander
Pairing/Character Focus: Ennoshita Chikara/Futakuchi Kenji
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] harklights
What makes this a gem: You know when a fic leaves such a lasting impression on you that it gives you chills each time you reread it? This is one of those fics. Playing off Ennoshita's canonical interest in film, this fic takes it to the next level and makes him an art student and filmmaker, with Futakuchi simply someone who's wandered off the street and into his exhibition. The ensuing conversation between two people who've just met is one of the most powerful pieces of dialogue I've ever read, full stop. It's intelligent without being too academic, challenging without being overwhelming. Just... really clever writing.

Over at our sister site, House Wilson Requests & Recs there was an inquiry about a specific homeless story, "In from the Cold" by Genagirl ": https://www.squidge.org/housefanfiction/archive/13/infrom.html 
 
What a treat to read it once again! And, it got me thinking... 

How about exploring the general theme with a post? Soooo *drumroll* here it is!

Please jump in with:
Any House-Wilson recs where either House or Wilson are homeless. 
New drabbles, one sentence, or six word stories..
Longer stories. They're guaranteed to be greeted like a prodigal son, but due to size, feel free to link to your site or post as a separate entry.

Wilson: You reading your patient's blog?

House: Nope.

Wilson: [sitting] You should. Could be some clues.

House: Too many. Be like doing a whole body scan. Send us up eight blind alleys. That's why Chase is doing it.

Wilson: She mentions you.

House: She's never met me.

Wilson: You're an unseen presence, like the Wizard of Oz.

House: He was a fraud. She couldn't have gone with Keyser Soze? Speaking of movies that don't make any sense, I stopped at the rental store to get those pornos back. I told the guy at the counter I was so grateful that you'd returned them, but I wanted them. Guess what. You only returned two. You lost the third. It's decent of you to pay for it, not let them put it on my bill.

Wilson: You know... I can explain what happened.

House: I'm sure you could. But rather than listen to your lies, I thought it'd be more fun to drive all over town and get another copy. [smiles smugly]

Wilson: You have – you have it here?

[House makes a big show of hitting a button on his keyboard. Suggestive music starts playing. House’s shoulders start moving with the music. Wilson springs from his chair and goes behind the desk to look. House looks at Wilson while Wilson looks at a scene of people, wearing animal skins and antlers, dancing around a fire.]

Wilson: Oh, God. [The person nearest the camera turns. It’s a very young Wilson.] Oh, God! Okay, first, that's not me. It's not – mostly not – [He starts again.] I was – I was in college. [Young Wilson moves toward and then past the camera, smiling.] I don't – my roommate was minoring in film.

House: Are you hyperventilating? Remember that covering your mouth and one nostril can help.

Wilson; [pointing at the screen] He had to get this in for some grade, [on screen, the antlered Wilson peers out from behind a tree then heads for Moon Woman, who is lying on the ground] and he was desperate. And the only reason I did it was because no one would ever see it. Who knew he'd become an actual director?

House: He's not a director. He's an artist. The way he plays with light and darkness and… [Young Wilson puts his arm around the girl] boobs.

[On screen, Moon Woman is in Wilson’s arms. Only their torsos can be seen. As they turn away from the camera, Wilson has become another “actor” who barely looks like him.]

Wilson: That's not me.

Moon Woman: What are you? Where are you taking me?

Not-Wilson: Be not afraid. The forest nymphs have taught me how to please a woman.

Wilson: [desperate] That's not me. That's not – I mean, you can see it's not me. He added extra scenes so he could release it as a porno.

[Moon Woman is lying on the ground with her robe spread open. She wears a very modern bra. Not-Wilson leans over her, blocking the view.]

House: Be not afraid, Wilson. You took risks for your art.

Wilson: [sighing] Oh, boy. [He starts to leave. House continues watching the video, intently. At the door, Wilson turns back.]

Wilson: No one – Hey, look at me – No one can know about this.

House: From this moment on, my lips are sealed.

My apologies for missing the last two weeks; I was super busy with RL stuff. To make up for this, here's a truly epic series, comprising a total of forty-five (yes, 45!!!) fics.

Fandom: Power Rangers (MMPR 1993 - In Space 1998)

Title: Personality Conflicts. Also at Paladar or at Fanfiction.net (links go to the respective author pages, as not all archives have interlinked fics. I'd suggest using the first link to Jenga's Library, as everything is in proper reading order there.)

Pairing/Character Focus: The series starts with Tommy Oliver as the main character, but soon involves what feels like half the planet, including many OCs. ;-) Multiple characters get focus chapters eventually. Pairings ... honestly too many to count.

Author: Ellen Brand

Summary: A series of disturbing dreams have Tommy questioning his sanity. Is he losing it, or is there something more at work here? In desperation, he seeks out the help of a psychiatrist. Eventually, he has no choice but to reveal his secret identity as a Power Ranger to that person and Things Are Starting To Happen.

What makes this a gem: In its time, "Personality Conflicts" was one of the must-read fic series in the fandom. Epic as it already is, it's technically unfinished -- well, at least Ellen had plans to cast her net even wider than she already had by the final fic. (Just imagine what would've happened if Mulder and Scully of "The X-Files" had been drawn int the Power Rangers universe ... Sadly, that never came to pass.) This is pretty much the ultimate crossover -- not only of all seven Power Rangers series set in Angel Grove (Mighty Morphin' to In Space), but also Masked Rider, Big Bad Beetleborgs and VR Troopers (all series produced by Saban). Then throw in the original Ghostbusters, lots of OCs, stir well and see what drifts to the top ...

I know it sounds like a hot mess, but somehow it all works. There's romance, humor, action, character development, adventure ... and yes, some therapy, too. :-) It's also written well and suitable for younger readers.

Fandom: inception
Title: sworn to lucidity
Pairing/Character Focus: mallorie 'mal' cobb
Author: [archiveofourown.org profile] GloriaMundi
What makes this a gem:

"This is my dream journal. I must write the twists of every dream: I must write the details of every day. Now, more than ever before, it's vital I remind myself, minute to minute, of the fine lines between dream, memory and the waking world."
Mal is awake. Dom sleeps on.


sworn to lucidity is a 'mal was right' au, which examines the whole of inception as a dream from which dom needs to wake up from.

we watch as mal struggles to come to terms with the invasion of her mind by dom and the loss of her husband, because his desire to create is stronger than his will to live in a world so immalleable.

this fic examines and proposes answers to questions that a lot of viewers had in regards to the ending of inception. and the whole thing is so plausible, especially when you take into consideration the symmetry of the length of the film and the length of the kick song, "Non, je ne regrette rien".

Put together this recipe for Pumpkin Spice Cake today (from the Washington Post). Followed the instructions except for sifting the flour and spices together -- just took it out of the oven and it smells delicious. :D

We must have an opossum in residence close by -- Layla treed a youngster both last night and this morning in the backyard, scaring the bejeebers out of the little guy both times.

Currently reading Jay McInerney's The Good Life, sequel to Brightness Falls and the middle book in his "New York trilogy" (I've noticed some people calling it his "Yuppie trilogy," heh). It's a good read, but omg these characters do not talk like normal people talk. Before this I read Neil Gaiman's American Gods. I had read it once, years and years ago, but I heard Gaiman had restored something like 12K words to a new edition. It was interesting to see how the book did or did not follow the first season of the TV show, and how a few scenes had been transferred to TV virtually unchanged. I enjoyed it a lot -- two thumbs up, would recommend.
