From [livejournal.com profile] hils

Title: Here's Fragging You, Kid
Author: purequicksilver
Summary: The Professional Gamers AU: Jensen "Frakles" Ackles' is the most successful Quake 3 gamer ever and Jared has always been his biggest fan. Now Jared has followed in the footsteps of his idol and become a professional first person shooter gamer himself – but Frakles retired from professional gaming before they could meet. Now Frakles is back and – thanks to Chad, who is working for a popular gaming show on TV - Jared finally gets the opportunity to meet the man who has been his idol since he was nineteen…
My comments: You know, this series of big bang fics has made me realise that I have a bit of thing for reading fics where the boys are geeks. I know nothing about professional gaming but it doesn't matter, this fic just works and it's cute and sweet and funny

My comment: Just go read, it is wonderful!

Title: This Course We Plotted
Author: mickeym
Summary:Jared Padalecki has a life he loves: friends, family, a good job and plans to make it as a writer someday. All that is shaken up when he meets Detective Jensen Ackles one night, while working an overtime shift. Jensen is smart, interesting, fun to hang out with, and Jared's drawn in like a moth to a flame. They go from friends to lovers, to something even Jared didn't know he was looking for: partners. But Jensen's never done relationships, and he's not sure he can now. Will he realize his job is just a job, but Jared is his everything?
My comments: There's just something charming about this one. The build up to the relationship is natural and the background characters are all great

Title: Each Day's A Gift (And Not A Given Right)
Author: soledadseraph
Summary:January 1998; two lives become irreversibly tangled together when rookie cop Jared Padalecki gets caught up in his first big case; seventeen year old misper, Jensen Ackles. Young and naive, he's not prepared for the emotional impact of Jensen's plight and finds himself getting sucked into a world he never knew existed; a world of pain and friendship and broken trust. Eleven years later, youth and innocence long since left behind, the one thing Jared can't forget is Jensen. That inability is the one thing that's going to turn both their lives upside down.
My comments: This is a rare one for me because I don't normally even touch fics that have scenes of non-con but I read this one and it's pretty amazing! Bucketloads of angst so be prepared for that but it's worth the read I think.

Had a Chinese take out yesterday Wor Tip Chicken, but as usual there was enough for two meals, so I left half for today. Heated it up, had two mouthfuls and was ill. Going to let my poor stomach recover and have some soup later. Groan.

Edit. Think I might have a very early night instead, probabaly be up at 3am if I do.
