  • In Which Tony Stark Builds Himself Some Friends (But His Family Was Assigned by Nick Fury) by scifigrl47: Steve takes things like personal responsibility and respect seriously. Tony's got people he pays to take care of that kind of thing, and anyway, he's pretty sure that he's going to die of some exotic disease in his workshop, because Dummy's still a little spotty about what is 'clean' enough to put on an open wound.

Sherlock [Sherlock Holmes / John Watson]
  • Let You Kiss Me (So Soft and So Sweet) by out_there: "The first time Sherlock kisses him, John keeps his eyes open, and so does Sherlock, and mostly, he wonders what Sherlock could possibly be up to.

  • Monroe's Fairytale Halfway House by mrsvc: Monroe looks at Nick, with his bright blue eyes and his silly teenage boy hair cut, and he thinks maybe it isn't so silly, that Barry thought they were together. It should be ridiculous, a Grimm and a Blutbad, and it kind of was, but right now, Monroe saw it as a whole different type of hilarious. It was trying to find every one's shoes at night when Barry and Roddy left to go out to eat, or slipping a few dollars in Gracie's pocket before she and Hansen left in the morning. It was Holly curled up on the floor with her head on Nick's knee waiting for her mom to come pick her up. It was beers at midnight, when the house was quiet, and coffee in the morning when it wasn't so peaceful.

sry, I've been taking time off from ENT (which I still can't get back into) and watching The Tudirs. I keep trying to find a way to work the actress that plays teen!Mary into my Pegasus X-treme cast. ::facepalms::
That's okay :) Just remember, you've only got to reach a certain point in ENT and then things get good. Oh, I've never seen the Tudors, but I love that you're mentally casting your Pegasus X-treme cast XD
Oh yes. I want to fit the guy who plays Cromwell in there too - I think he'd be a good Ladin Radim. And maybe the woman who plays Anne Bolyen as that Traveller chick, whatshername. Larrin. That, and the guy who plays More. But I can't figure out who he should be either. Le sigh.

It's worth watching. S1 is very good. The rest... eh, not no much, but then again I'm a history buff.
Hmmm. I love history, but I don't know much about the Tudors. I may put it on my list of things to watch, but I'm already watching two new shows and rewatching 3 others.
I could probably list most the English monarchs in order if you gave me a minute or two. But, then again, I've an editic memory and find Henry VIII fascinating.

Though I did once work with a girl who didn't realize that the series was based on actual events. She kept wanting to know where I got all the spoilers from. ::shakes head::
eh, sometimes.
it made listening to the trivia game the old guys next to me at the gym today were playing very annoying though
