My Battlestar Galactica Master Rec List

This list will be continually added to. However, after the initial posting, I'll be making separate postings with all the updates. Feel free to give me the links to any fics you feel that I should recommend. Now, on with the list!

Flesh and Bone
"A BSG shippers fanfiction archive. All stories must focus on one ship or more." Dude, it's BSG and pairing fics. All different kinds of pairings. How can you not love that? Also, it's got Kara/Leoben in the layout.

[Kara Thrace [Starbuck]]

Parasite [livejournal][Janefic]
author: Jane St Clair
rating: FRAO
summary: Kara has reproductive. Issues.
why: Because it's Kara all fucked up. Spoilers for 'The Farm'

[Bill Adama/Laura Roslin]
Firearms [livejournal][survival instinct]
author: kimbari
rating: FRM
summary: none given
why: Because it's guns and sex. Staring Bill and Laura. There is not enough fic about Bill and Laura together having sex. There should be.

Prose [livejournal][the peach tree]
author: A.J.
rating: FRT
summary: He almost wishes this were a book and that when they're finished, he could open it to read and live all again.
why: Because it's Mom and Dad and it's heartbreaking.

[Kara Thrace/Lee Adama (Starbuck/Apollo)]
[[i die just trying]] to keep myself from kissing you [livejournal]
author: anythingbutgrey
rating: FRT
summary: He wants to skirt fingers across skin and feel a shiver like someone snapping out of the cold.
why: This is a lovely and slightly ansty piece with spoilers up to Home pt. 1. It's all from Lee's Pov, and we all know what a little emo angst-boy he can be!

33 Minutes [livejournal]
author: cupidsbow
rating: FRAO
summary: A break in routine during the end of the world.
why: A nice little fic set during the episode '33'. It all takes place during the breaks between the Cylon attacks before Kara takes the stims. It's all from her POV and just screams 'Starbuck' to me.

A Garden Enclosed [livejournal]
author: meyerlemon
rating: FRM
summary: "Don't stop," Kara says, and Lee, who is all out of resistance, does not.
why: It's sex, but a lot of emotion, mostly angst.

Angle of Descent [livejournal]
author: daphnaea
rating: FRM
summary: She thinks that if they were ever married, they’d have a throwing pots and pans, waking up the neighbors kind of life. Then a wave of guilt pulls her under. She expunges the word ‘married’ from her mental vocabulary.
why: It's them all fucked up, though it does end... happily?

Digging a Hole (Nothing Romantic About the Hours We Keep) [livejournal]
author: bantha_fodder
rating: FRM
summary: none given
why: Because it's Lee cheating... I love it when he's a bastard.

Easier Than This [livejournal]
author: leda13
rating: FRM
summary: I tried to climb your steps / I tried to chase you down / I tried to see how low I could get down to the ground / I tried to earn my way / I tried to tame this mind / You better believe that I tried to beat this
why: It's set after Home pt2 and it's full of pilot UST. While it cuts off right before you get to the resolving of said sexual tension, it's still perfect.

In the Sight of the Gods [livejournal]
author: wisteria_
rating: FRM
summary: Scenes from a marriage.
why: Not only do I love the way it portrayed their marriage as far from perfect and very rocky, yet still working for them most of the time. I also really liked how it represented Kara and Lee's views on the possibilities of them having children.

Intra [livejournal]
author: svilleficrecs
rated: FRAO
summary: Her body is more complicated when she's near him.
why: Because it's not all angsty and fucked up... well it is, but only in the past.

Seven, Like Dante's [livejournal]
author: leda13
rated: FRAO
summary: "Sometimes," he says, the sound of his voice so totally unlike him that he wonders if he's someone else and didn't know it, "I wonder how my brother could ever have loved you."
why: Lee. Kara. Angst. Sex. Really, I'm getting predictable with this.

Something Pretty [livejournal]
author: svilleficrecs
rated: FRM
summary: Lee's under deadline, Starbuck's being a brat, and the fate of the human race hangs in the balance.
why: Kara. Lee. [light]Angst. [sorta]Sex. Did you see that one... you get it. It hits at least one of my kinks. I always love that.

The Private Softness of Her Skin [livejournal]
author: wisteria_
rated: FRM
summary: "Something huge is going to happen soon. He knows this. He picks up his carryall, follows Starbuck over to the status desk, and waits for it to come."
why: Spoilers for mid-Pegasus. It's written out of chronological order [insert technical term here] and it's just perfect. Shockingly, I love it even though I'm not really seeing angst.

Weigh This Moment [livejournal][stars-like-dust]
author: stars_like_dust
rated: FRT
summary: He can still feel her skin underneath his fingers.
why: Lee. Kara. Angst. Just a ficlet that shows how much she's his weakness.

[Kara Thrace [Starbuck]/Leoben]
Belief [livejournal][the archive at the end of the universe]
author: makesmewannadie
rated: FRM
summary: Kara is lost. Leoben finds her.
why: Because 'Flesh and Blood' was moving, and that interrogation scene was both disturbing and hot.


Making a Loud Noise Until Rescued

"I thought," said Piglet earnestly, "that if Eeyore stood at the bottom of the tree, and if Pooh stood on Eeyore's back, and if I stood on Pooh's shoulders----"

"And if Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha ha! Amusing in a quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

"Well," said Piglet meekly, "I thought----"

"Would it break your back, Eeyore?" asked Pooh, very much surprised.

"That's what would be so interesting, Pooh. Not being quite sure till afterwards."
